Hailey, my best friend, had always had a huge crush on my older brother Andy. He's two years older than me. Tonight she had finally worked up the courage to tell him. I sat beside her, hiding my slight jealousy.
"Andy, I think you're so cute! Anna's probably going to kill me for having a crush on her brother, but I can't help it!"
Andy looked at me, then at her. "Hailey, thanks for telling me that. It's very flattering, but I already have a special girl in my life," he said with a sweet smile. He glanced at me, and I tried to hide the fact that I was blushing.
"Ah man! I figured I was already too late!" Hailey said, not hiding her disappointment. "So who's the lucky lady?" Andy paused, then answered, "Oh someone I've known for a long time. You wouldn't know her though."
A few minutes later, Hailey got up to go home, since we had school the next morning. As soon as she walked out the door, Andy took my hand in his and looked into my eyes. My heart melted as I returned his loving smile.
