This one great tale


I have this secret.

Only now, thanks to boredom I am actually letting this secret out.

There was this one great infatuation that I had. It’s probably been a year since I had this crazy infatuation and although I don’t want to sound like a stalker, I’m going to share it with you anyway since I believe that a great tale shouldn’t go to waste.

There’s this guy that I saw one day at the old lounge of our school and I swear to you, when I saw him, the room froze and it was just like in the movies. As embarrassing as it may seem, it was like a scene out of “Head over Heels.”

The main reason for this cheesiness is the fact that he looked like my all time favorite poster boy: Ryan Merriman. I swear, he was like his twin! And so began my crazy crush on one of the smartest guys on the planet: Marcel Longerich.

I’m unflinchingly saying his name due to the fact that this super being doesn’t know that I exist. Well, maybe he used to know I exist due to the fact that I was on registration committee and in one of his classes. We talked a couple of times, but since he was so amazingly smart, I could hardly keep up with him.

Aside from the fact that he’s so good looking (not a lot of people can look like Ryan Merriman), he’s also one of the smartest people that I know of. He’s so smart, to the extent that he could come to class, a little late due to the fact that he’s working already and still be the one able to answer all the questions that our professor has asked in the entire discussion. He can also twist the way he looks at things and make them appear more significant.

One time, he complimented me on my report and I nearly DIED. It was that big of a compliment because he was uber smart and saying nice things about my report could meant that I did something right.

Another thing about him is the fact that he’s so simple. He’s the no fuss type of guy and there’s just this aura of contentment and peace around him. He doesn’t care about other people and just does what he has to do. It’s so inspiring due to the fact that most of the time we strive to fit in and please people with the material things that we own, but not him. He’s at peace with himself and concerned with the details of his life in away that’s so inspiring.

He knows what he wants and he goes after it. If that ain’t worth admiring then I don’t know what is.

Sad for me, he graduated last year and I do miss seeing him in school every day. Seeing him just turns on that inspired mode in me and it excites the hell out of me most of the time.

Its just a plain little crush, like what Ava had on her teacher on My Girl. That has nothing to do with his age though, he’s just that accomplished.

Okay, now that I have said all of those things its just plain embarrassing. I better stop now.

Not that he’d ever stumble into this, but some who knows him might. So I’m ending it here.

I know he’s going to be some popular person someday and I just can’t wait for his success to show up somewhere.
