High School Romance.

Ariel, an image of a red-headed mermaid poped into your head, didn't it? Well, that's kind of me. A fiery red head and look alike to Molly Quinn. I just started high school (oh joy.) and I'm so not used to it. What happened to small schools? Oh well, but, I can't really complain. And all of my classes are fairly easy, and every single one of them I share with the most random guy, football jersey number 13. That's what I call him, thirteen. And I think I like him... like, LIKE LIKE him... and I'm pretty sure he feels the same way about me...


32. Chapter Six, Part Two.

Like that would happen.

We walked into the school's gym and there was music turned up as loud as it could be, Capitol City's 'Safe And Sound'.

Stephanie exclaimed something I couldn't hear and then took Nathan by the hand into the middle of the group of dancing people.

I laughed, then realized Ryan was pulling me into the same sea of faces. My breath caught in my throat, I didn't know how to dance.

I know it sounds stupid, but I never went to a dance before in my life. And I have no idea how to dance. I looked around to the people near me, I tried to mimic them; hop to one foot, then the other. Nodd your head to the beat of the music.

[ about an hour later ]

I can't do this, this is stupid and I'm going to make a fool of myself. I din't even know what I was doing now, I was just basically swaying back and forth trying to sing the mumbled mix of words that was in this song.

"I'm going to be right back, okay?" Ryan shouted over the noise of the music.

I nodded and he left. I checked my watch, it was about 9:30. The dance would be over in another half hour.

I sighed.


I turned around.

"Do you want to go take some pictures?" Ryan asked me. I looked over to the short line of people waiting to take pictures. The back drop was a fall/autumn trail with pumpkins. Cute.

"Sure." I shouted back.

We got in line and waited about fifteen minutes, then we took our pictures. Ryan wrapped his arms around my waist and I put my hands over his. I looked to the camera and smiled as a blinding flash went off.

The camera girl smiled and handed us each a copy. I was looking at the camera, and Ryan was smiling down at me.

I smiled and giggled.


I turned around, Stephanie was holding a similar sized piece of paper.

"You got your pictures?" She asked.

"Yeah!" I said.

We showed off our pictures. Stephanie and Nathan were in love, you could see it on thier faces. It was so perfect.

"Um, Ariel," Ryan said as I was getting my picture back from Stephanie, "there's one more dance..."

I nodded thinking it would probably be another fast song and I wouldn't know what I was doing. Ryan pulled me back onto the dance floor and immediatled pulled me into something between a hug and a waltz.

"I asked for this song," he whispered to me.

I looked up at him to ask if he had gone crazy, when Hunter Hayes' 'Wanted' came on.

I smiled, I had always wanted to dance to this song, but how did he know? I swayed along with him, my head on his chest, and quietly hummed the words too.

Finally, as the song was about to end, Ryan cupped my chin in his hand and brought my face up to his.

He smiled, then leaned in and kissed me.
