"Gabriella?" Mrs. Thompson called out.
"Here," I said weakly in reply. I always hated role call. It always made my voice sound higher than it actually is.
I was hardly paying attention because I was practicing my handwriting fonts and drawing banners with my name in them at the corner of my notebook.
My head shot around as I heard the door open behind me. I only got a glimpse of who walked past.
They had messy cocoa brown hair, shimmering green eyes, freckles, and slightly chapped lips. I had never seen them before.
I heard a faint sound say "Tatum," that must have been his name. Mrs. Thompson pointed him over in my direction. Oh what fun. People. New people. I let out a gentle smile as he sat down and he returned it.
Mira gave me a weird look from across the room. I gave her back the same look but she just rolled her eyes like the sass ball she is and looked away.
Rachel who sat across from me, shot a smile at Tatum and then glanced away. Yup there it was. The Rachel spell. He saw her smile and blushed lightly and looked down smirking.
He shifted his eyes up to mine and I quickly looked down again and continued twisting my pencil.
