Just Another Face in the Crowd

John Smith is quite possibly the most average teenager on the face of the planet.

Until the night he renders the laws of physics obsolete and throws his city into chaos.

“Do you think there’ll be a test tomorrow?” Rachel asked, leaning against her locker. The air was cool and breezy. The two of them stood outside, by rows of off-white colored lockers. They were the last ones there, aside from a few lingering students walking around.

“Maybe. Ms. Lin was pretty vague,” John replied, stacking the rest of his books into the cramped space. He strained to shove one last two-inch thick text book in, but eventually gave up and decided to bring the book back with him.

Rachel shrugged. John spoke up again.

“Hey, this might seem like an odd question, but what do you know about quantum physics?”

Rachel raised her eyebrows and chuckled. “Quantum physics? I’m an art student, John. Why would I know anything about that?”

“I dunno. Just popped into my head.”

“You think about the strangest things.”

Rachel scratched the back of her head nervously. She had planned to finally make a move and ask John out on a date. She twirled a lock of her hair in her fingers.

“What’s the matter, Rach? You’re looking tense,” John said, turning to her.

“Um, nothing. I was just wondering,” she said, with butterflies fluttering in her stomach, “whether you’d be free Saturday night? I was thinking that we could go and catch a movie or something.”

Rachel smiled shakily. John looked confused for about a second, before realizing what she meant. A grin came over his face. “Yeah. Definitely.”

Rachel was stunned. She was not expecting any kind of positive response at all. She eventually laughed and hugged John quickly. John himself was quite surprised. He always liked the girl, but his feelings were buried deeper than he thought.

“So, um, I’ll call you?” Rachel asked, raising the smallest finger and thumb on her right hand. She was still blushing.

“Yeah,” John replied, with a massive grin still plastered to his face.

With that, the two exchanged goodbyes and went their separate ways.
