I walk to my class in the halls I see goths, jocks, nerds, and then there's me a lonely deaf girl. But one boy stands out he has blue icy eyes and brown swishish hair over his ear, like he had a cochlear. No way I was told I was the only deaf student here.
I follow the boy and he walks into my class. Great.
I see my interpreter Ms.Alexoudis. She tells me to sit up front.
"No! I don't want to draw attention to myself!!" I tell her.
"Okay' she says in surrender.
On the board reads
1. Sit down
2. Talk with your seat neighbor (get to know them)
I sit in the back the boy comes and sits next to me.
She's really pretty I don't even know her name!
I see an interpreter deaf girl, great! Luckily I know ASL
"Hey" I sign to her "I'm Louis" I sign to her and then my name sign.
"You know ASL?" She asks
"Yeah I'm fluent my foster mom is deaf" I tell her. I lied.
"I'm Avery" She says and signs her sign name.
"You want to sit with me at lunch?" I sign
"Yeah I have ZERO friends here"
"Your lying" I tell her
"You have me" I tell her. The interpreter watching, but I don't care.
I walk to the Café and see the lunch lines and Louis. I really think hes hiding something about how he knows ASL. I walk to the line and wait. Looking for Leigh shes hanging out with Allison. Didn't even notice me!
I got my lunch, and look for Louis. He's sitting with the jocks. He sees me and tells me to come and sit down across from him.
So I do. We sign and I learn all about his friends and try to understand what they're talking about... Girls, bikes, teachers? No clue.
But what I do know is that I like Louis and I think he likes me.
A/N You like? I kinda got inspiration form switched at birth. What do you think Louis is hiding from Avery??
