Overview

In 1892 Stephen Crane (1871-1900) published Maggie, Girl of the Streets at his own expense. Considered at the time to be immature, it was a failure. Since that time it has come to be considered one of the earliest American realistic novels. Maggie is the story of a pretty child of the Bowery which is written with the same intensity and vivid scenes of his masterpiece -- The Red Badge of Courage. In her short life, Maggie "blossomed in a mud puddle", was driven to prostitution, and died by her own hand while still a teenager.

Crane, who worked as a free lance reporter, was in many ways addicted to the low life of the cities. He died at the age of 29.

So. At the beginning of the year, I developed a huge crush on someone. He was my best frnds friends last year, but I had never talked to him until this year. He's in orchestra, and I'm in band, so we often see eachother at concerts(school). And we've grown to be really good friends. But ya see, when I learn that someone likes me, I just fade away from them. And that's exactly what happened. In February, my best friend told me that he liked me. She DID NOT know that I had a crush on him. She said, "Don't tell anyone. I wasn't even supposed to tell YOU!" Then shortly after that, I've caught him looking at me a lot, becoz idk...I look at my crushes a lot especially when they're not looking(not a stalker xD). I know that sounds creepy, but who doesn't do that? Eh. Well, it's the end of the school year, and I want that friendship to come back. NATURALLY. I don't want to look desparate. I don't know if he still feels for me, coz he's literally all that's on my mind...So I just want to get the friendship back to it's normal place and see if he still likes me. How do I approach him? I haven't talked to him in a while...
