I just wanted to let you know that I like you!
When I was ten years old I did track and field. One of the coaches was always very nice to me. I really liked this and I wanted to let him know that I liked him. But I didn’t know how. After thinking about it for quite some time I suddenly had a great idea. We had just been playing a game with balls and there were still many balls lying around. I was sure that if I would kick a ball against him that he would understand that I liked him, since I did it to let him know this. I was getting really enthousiastic. I was totally convinced that he would be really happy the moment the ball would hit him. I picked up one of the balls and looked at the coach who was just talking to another coach on the other side of the gymnasium. I placed the ball right in front of me and kicked it really hard in the coach’s direction. I waited and watched the ball hit him against his leg. He looked at the ball and then went on with his cenversation. I decided to try again. I picked up another ball and placed it on the floor right in front of me. Then I kicked it even harder in his direction. I watched and waited. Right when the ball was zooming through the air the coach turned his face in my direction a dn the ball hit himextremely hard right in his face. I was extremely happy. I just knew that he was happy too and that he would tell me know that he liked me too.
But instead he appraoched me with a very angry face. He wasn’t happy at all. Then he told me in a very angry way to go to the changing rooms and sit there for a while thinking about what I just had done. I walked slowly into the changingrooms being really disappointed. I sat down and thought about what just had happened. I was really confused. I didn’t understand why he was angry. I just didn’t understand what was wrong about letting somebody know that you like him.
