8. Our new beginning
*the next day*
i came to school wondering if I would get my answer today. I really like John and this time I'm not kidding. During math I could help but stare at him. It felt like eternity passed by twice before we finally talked. He sat right behind me in reading and when I turned around to get my homework out he whispered "I'll tell you my answer outside after lunch." It felt like forever until the end of reading and during that time, I started convincing myself that he would say no. I could name multiple reasons why. I mean, why would he go out with a girl like me?! My thoughtswere interrupted by the bell. During lunch, me and John talked about anything and everything except for the question I had asked him the day before.
John and I were hanging out and I didn't really know what to say. I was so nervous to say anything because I didn't want him to turn me down. Then Alina came. The first thing she did was talk to him about me asking him out. Of coarse she just wanted to know to either go nuts on him or tease me about it ad make me blush.
"oh yeah I still haven't told you my answer!" He said. "But first, tell me what you think I'm going to say?"
I just looked down all shy and said "honestly, I've been convincing myself that you're gonna say no"
"your kidding right. If I were gonna say no, do you thinking would've spent five hours staring at a wall, thinking about you yesterday?"
Now I knew the answer was yes but I was still very shy and didn't want to look him in the eye.
"So. What's your answer?" He said.
I wanted to say "yes obviously. I wouldn't have asked you if I wanted you to say no" but I just kept staring at the ground. That's where Alina helped me out.
"Of coarse yes! SHES the one who asked YOU out!" She said In a Duh-sorta way.
Then I simply nodded my head, still not able to find my words. John pulled something out of his pocket. Two things actually. Two Korean coins, one gold, one silver. It was so sweet even though it was something so simple. I knew then that he was a keeper.
