The science block was on the other side of the school, and to be honest, I had no idea what I was really doing. As we walked through the hall, I turned to her again; she seemed content with my poor company, smiling away happily. I hardly said anything to her on the way there, and I was wondering why she wasn't going with one of her normal friends. I was starting to learn about Jess, seemed dedicated to her schoolwork, that showed smarts. She liked fun and wacky things like anime, showing she wasn't dull. Finally, she was damn hot, showing she looked after her body; not filling it up with cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. Before I knew it *click* we were at the science block... guess time flies when you have fun.
"I'll be a quick second Tana." she whispered to me, going through the doors of one of the labs.
"Take your time." I replied. She went through the doors and a silence fell through the halls of the block. I was left to just think to myself about all this, contemplating my options. "Ask her out?" I muttered to myself. No! Don't be a twat! You've known her for about an hour! "What about telling her I like her?". See last response wank chops... "How about hanging out with her more, see what she's really like?" Keep going... "Like, hang out with her as much as I can, get to know her and see if she'll like me back." That sounds better Tana. Call me crazy for speaking to myself like Gollum off of 'Lord of the Rings' but it keeps me sane. For if I didn't then I would be asking out Jess straight away and blown away all my chances.
*Slam!* The door next to me opens with Jess leaping out with a cheerful look, staring at a sheet of paper.
"What's that?" I asked, being a nosey little shite that I am.
"Biology test! I got an A!" she hopped round to me.
"That's great! I'm quite good at Biology myself." it seems she ignored me. Not replying, just looking at the paper in awe. Then *click*.
"I'm not usually good at it. That's why I am so pleased! I might need your help next time."
"Not from what I can see." I winked.
I guess the rest of the break tells it's self. For the next, ooo, fifteen minutes of that time, we just talked about science. The endless subject that brings terror and joy. Equations, formulas and theories kept our lonely conversation going and going. We had the link of that we both loved a science. She adored Physics and detested Chemistry. I abhorred Chemistry too but idolized Biology. This was the first sign of hope I had, it was a glimmer but a sign nonetheless.
