I just got out of my 6th period dance class and waiting for the bell to ring. What the heck was I thinking when I touched his hand. Ugh. Then Bianca came in and had to ruin the moment.
"Hey! Tami...Uh hi?"
I look up and see Josh, a blonde junior boy, who likes me a lot. He has a hearing aid in both ears, has blue eyes, glasses, plays tuba for the band and is a couple of inches taller than me which isn't saying much to my 5'2 height.
He asked me in the beginning of this year to go with him to the first football game of the year because his girlfriend didn't want to go with him. So he asked me and reassured me that he would wait for me by the gate, pay for my ticket, and as soon as he could he would hang out with me.
So guess what happened?
I paid my way in, was alone the entire game, and when the band was done playing he went home!
Nice 1st date.
"Oh...Hello Josh!" I smiled praying that the bell would ring soon.
"Hey...um I was just wondering...if you weren't doing anything after school...maybe we could..." At that moment Josh's friends walked by and started cat-calling.
"Hey! Hey you with the spiked hair! He likes you! He never stops talking about you in class. He thinks your sexy! He loves your hair! He wants to go out with you!" They walked away snickering and laughing.
I turned and looked at Josh but he just turned crimson red and walked away from me.
"Um...OK?" I stared down at my hands and pondered over what just happened.
I pulled my back pack over my right shoulder and started the walk to the choir room. Kids were already piling out of their classes rooms.
I turned and there he was.
I smiled and brushed my bangs aside, "Oh hello."
"Where are you headed?" He asked as he started walking next to me.
"The choir room, I go there after school everyday."
"Really, that's exactly where I was headed." Johnny said.
"Oh, wanna walk with me?"
A group of freshmen girls walked by and a loud chorus of "Hi Johnny!" rang out.
"Oh uh hi"
As we reached the door of the choir room, I half expected Johnny to open the door and walk in first. But he opened the door and let me in first.
"After you." Johnny gestures for me to go in.
"Oh are you sure, um OK..," I walked in and waited for him to get what he came in there for. I sat down on one of the chairs just to stand back up again. I walked outside and sat in the sun. The cool air brushed against my bare skin, giving me goosebumps.
I sighed and stood up. I was lost in thought and when I think I tend to stare at something. So I kept my eyes on the ground and went back to the door of the choir room. I reached for the door handle but instead of cool metal, I grabbed warm flesh.
I looked up quickly and saw that I had grabbed onto Johnny's arm. He was turned with his back to me but when I grabbed his arm he turned really fast. I didn't realize we were so close to one another. When he turned he pushed me, not ready to be pushed I started to fall.
His face went from shock to extreme shock, his arm that knocked me down shot out and around my waist. He pulled me to him and put his free hand on the back of my head pulling my head into his chest. He turned and we lost our balance. We fell in a heap in front of the door of the choir room.
