7. Pete

My next class was AP Lit.  The same class I had with Pete.  I entered the room and sat in my seat; back row, right next to the door.  Sammi’s seat was right in front of me.  Pete’s was right next to hers.  He entered the room less than a minute after Sammi and I did.

As he sat down, he said, “Hi Sammi.  Hey, Jo.”

“Hi,” I said, but it was barely audible--I had always had a quiet voice.

“Can I talk to you after class for a sec.?”  My blood ran cold.  Pete rarely talked to me except to say hi.

“Sure,” I said, trying to sound nonchalant.  When the bell rang to get out of class, he walked over to me and I said, “What’s up?”

“It’s about Homecoming.”  I’m not sure what sound it was that Sammi made--something between a laugh and a cough.  I just froze as Pete continued, “You see, I want to go, but I’m not sure who to ask.”

I hesitated for a second before I found the words.  “I think I know someone who might be interested,” I said.  It sounded more flirty than I intended, but I was okay with that.

“Really?  Who?”  I wasn’t sure if he was flirting back, or if it was a real question.  I quickly decided to stick with the former.

“Someone in our class,” I said.

He got a thoughtful look on his face, then smiled and said, “I think I know who you’re talking about.  Thanks.”  He started walking away, then turned and said, “Hey, could you tell her I like the hair?”

“Uh, will do,” I said, as he walked away.  I turned to my friend.  “What just happened?”

“Beats me,” she said, but something about her face looked suspicious.

“Sammi, what aren’t you telling me?”

“Oh, just that I told him that you wanted him to ask you to Homecoming.”

“What?!”

“You’re welcome.”  I just looked at her.  “Oh, you can thank me later.  But now, we’re going to be late for fourth period.”  She started walking to her next class.

I just stood there for a second then said, “He likes my hair,” and smiled.
