Looking at Juice

Zayn's POV

''You should go,'' Mike tells me.


''What do you mean where? Go in line!''

''But she's--''

Mike shoves me over. ''Go!''

I'm stuck to the bench. This is not the way I imagined it would happen.

''What's good, yo?'' Josh says. ''Move!''

I get up. I walk towards the line. I've just spent the last five minutes watching that jock clone Andrew and his overinflated ego sit next to Molly. Talking to her. Talking to her friends.

Where the hell did he come from?

I get in line. She's ahead of me. Looking at juice. I have no idea what to say to her.

The next thing I know, she's bending down to pick something up. Here's my chance. I run to her, almost knocking over the girl in front of me. I see a pound on the floor. I bend down to get it. Our heads smack together. Well, to be more accurate, I smacked my head against Molly's like a socially inept moron. Smooth move.

I hold out her pound. She's rubbing her head.

''Sorry!'' I say. ''Thanks.''

I can't even remember what I say three seconds after I say it, but apparently it's funny. She laughs.I said something funny and made Molly laugh.

I rule.

''See ya,'' she says.

''OK,'' is all I can think to say. No wonder she practically runs back to Andrew.

I go back to my table. Josh is gone.

''Well?'' Mike says.

I just sit there.

''Dude! What happened?''


''How can that be possible? This was your chance to make a move.''

''I know.''


''I don't know.''

''Man,'' Mike says. ''That's messed up.''

Now Andrew's making everyone laugh. Andrew just moved here.He shouldn't be allowed to go over there and make everyone laugh. I've known Molly and Shania and Elizabeth since third grade. I've watched them grow up. I know their histories. Andrew doesn't know anything about them.

''We need strategy that's all,'' Mike says. ''No problemo.''

When Shania and Elizabeth leave, I panic. What's he saying to her? What's she thinking? Is there a worse form of agony than this?

She smiled at me. But then she was gone. How did life move ahead without me?
