<span style=font-weight:400>Maybe telling someone something vital on Halloween isn’t a great idea. Especially when you tell a boy you like him at school. So, yeah, not the greatest idea. But that is exactly what 16-year-old Autumn Morrison had done. Her best friend had witnessed the whole thing and thought it was hilarious.  Autumn had been walking down the hall at the end of the day with her friend, Artemis, when she saw Oliver Hart at his locker. Artemis smiled and quickly walked over to Oliver and Autumn started calling her friends name quietly</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>“Artemis! No</span><span style=font-weight:400>,</span> <span style=font-weight:400>what are you doing?”</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>Artemis ignored Autumn and proceeded to tap Oliver on the shoulder. Oliver turned around and smiled his smile that made Autumn feel different from every other girl.</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>“Hey ‘Mis. Autumn. What’s up?”</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>“Well me and Autumn were wondering if you wanted to come to a haunted house with us tonight</span><span style=font-weight:400>.</span><span style=font-weight:400></span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>Autumn walked up at that point, because she had been lagging behind, and said to Oliver, her voice small.</span>
<span style=font-weight:400>“Well, not a haunted house, more like a party, but the theme is a haunted house. I’m going to shut up now.”</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>Oliver smiled and said, “I’d love to.”</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>“Oh, and Oliver&#8230;I like you,” Autumn blurted out and then covered her mouth with her hand. Oliver just walked away and Artemis was doubled over in silent laughter.</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>“Good going ‘Mun.”</span>
<span style=font-weight:400>Later…</span>
<span style=font-weight:400>“Hey ‘Mis, where’s Autumn?” Oliver yelled over the noise of the music and Artemis pointed to where Autumn, dressed as a Greek goddess, stood.</span><span style=font-weight:400><br></span><span style=font-weight:400>“Thanks!” he yelled, walking over to Autumn. When he got there she set her drink down and meant to slip away, but Oliver grabbed her wrist and spoke</span> <span style=font-weight:400>in her ear so she could hear him</span><span style=font-weight:400>.</span>
<span style=font-weight:400>“For what it’s worth, I like you too.”</span>
