1. Meeting HIM

Ellie POV       

       I grabbed my book off of the counter along with my iphone and headphones. It was my first time reading "Along For The Ride" by Sarah Dessen and I was really excited to read it. Putting on my turquoise Toms, I checked my Facebook. I had many friends on Facebook, but if you asked me how many of them I was actually friends with, I'd be able to count on one hand. I was starting at the university at the end of the summer but now I would just relax at the park.

        I locked the door behind me as I set off for the two minute walk to the park. I took pictures on my iphone and posted one or two on Instagram as I walked. I liked taking pictures - not because I wanted to be known, but because I liked to try and find the beauty in everything. Reaching the park, I sat down in my usual spot which was underneath shaded trees at the edge of the park. No one came over to this side of the park - ever. Except me, which I claimed mentally as my special spot. Of course, I never told anyone this, but since I was the only one that ever bothered to be over here, it didn't really matter.

       I plugged my headphones in and cranked up the volume to the loudest it could go. The current song playing was "Warrior" by Demi Lovato, one of my favorite songs. I listened to my music and read my book for a solid two hours before yawning and putting the music on pause. It was beginning to get dark. I could see the sun begin to set and decided to take a picture of it. The colors ranged from pink to orange, and a beautiful purple that was only visible in certain spots. "Hey," A voice interrupted my perfect shot. I looked in the direction of the voice and saw the silhouette of a man. It was too dark at this point to really distinguish his features, aside from the ability to see he seemed moderately tall and wasn't slouching. 

       I raised up my hand in a "wait a minute" way and took my picture. As I was admiring the picture, he cleared his throat again. "Yes?" I asked annoyed that someone came to the spot where I was. As I said before, no one came to this part of the park. Normally I was left alone, as if transported to a barren planet. 

       "I just thought I'd say hi," The guy said.

       "Well you said hey," I retorted.

       "Wow you're clever," He replied.

      "Thanks," I responded sarcastically. He sat down a couple feet from me.

      "So why do you sit by yourself over here?" He asked me.

       "Why do you care?" I questioned. I didn't want it to come across rude but I think it did anyways.

       "Well I don't know. I thought it was pretty cool That you're all independent," He answered.

       "Thanks?" I replied.

       "So do you come here often love?" He asked.

       "You ask alot of questions," I told him. He nodded knowingly. "And yes. I come almost everyday," I answered his question.

       "I noticed you like taking pictures," He said pointing at my phone. I nodded. "Should I pose?" He laughed.

       "Noo. I rarely take photos of people. And when I do, it's of people I know," I replied.

       "I'll take that as a challenge," He told me.

       "What's the challenge?" I inquired.

       "To get to know you and you me so I can have my picture taken of course," He replied.

       "Well I have to leave so bye," I said awkwardly.

       "Bye love," The guy called.

       "Oh and by the way,  that's my spot," I warned him as I made my way out of the park and saw him slide over to where I was sitting. I made sure to avoid the street lamp so he wouldn't see what I looked like.

       I walked home with fluttery feelings inside of me from meeting HIM. Then I realized I probably wouldn't ever see him again so I drowned my thoughts out by cranking up my music.
