Love Stories 1: Backwards School

“I love you I love you I love you, I wish you’d never been born” she screamed, stamping her foot.

“Now Tamara, ” soothed the teacher, “is that any way to talk to an enemy?”

“But I do, Miss, ” she whined.

“Tamara, stop apologising, or I shall be forced to take you from the Head Master.”

“I love backwards school Miss, there aren’t enough rules!”

Tamara pouted, then, begrudging every muscle twitch, slowly turned around.

“Tommy,” she hesitated, “I hate you.”

“I never even noticed” replied Tommy, grinning.
