It’s the first day of school and I’m so excited. Not just because of my allowance back, but also because it could mean a thing–I might see you today.
So now, I’m waiting here at the bus stop and hoping to see you soon. I smiled at the thought, but then I realized, I know nothing about you except your name. I saw it on your I.D. You know what? I’m wearing my I.D. today. It’s the first time I would wear this outside our school, because I always forget to. I would only remember to wear this whenever I see the guard. Such a funny thing. Now I’m hoping that you’d come and see my name. I’m a coward who cannot even speak when you are around. I just timidly stare at my foot, as I wait for my bus to come. It has been a year since I first saw you here. We both wait for different buses every day. We have never talked to each other, as in NEVER. I’m afraid you’d ignore me once i try to reach out. I’m satisfied by just staring at you when you are looking at the other way. I’m patiently waiting right now. I look at my wristwatch and see that there’s only five minutes before my bus comes. My smile is starting to fade. Where are you? Would you even come? One deep sigh. I guess I’d miss this chance.
Dear *insert name here*,
I’m laughing at myself right now. I don’t even know your name. You never wore your I.D. so I never had the chance to know what should come after the ‘dear’ on top of this letter.
It’s been a year and I’m sad because we never had the chance to talk, or better yet, I never got the guts to start a conversation. I’m not even sure if you’d answer back, so I didn’t dare. I see you at the bus stop every day. You always come before me and ride your bus earlier. I found out that you come from other school when you stepped in that bus. I always wear my I.D., wishing that you want to know my name so you’ll take a glance. Am I assuming? No, I’m just hoping.
Today is the first day of school, and I woke up late! Gosh, I need to hurry or else I’ll miss my bus. I hastily fixed myself and ate a little for breakfast. Of course I wouldn’t forget to wear my I.D. Ten more minutes before my bus comes, so I’m running as fast as I can. Finally, I reached the bus stop. I saw you standing there. I’m running out of breath, but you looked at me and smiled. Yes, you smiled! One more thing, you are wearing your I.D. today! Now I know what to write on top of this letter, and I want to write it down here.
