Dismay

I thought I knew what was right. I thought I know what I wanted. That one girl who seemed perfect for me: or so I thought. All of a sudden, a boy intervened - everything I thought I knew was about to change. I certainly didn't expect this.

3. 3 - Dread

Jennifer turned around. I saw her crystal blue eyes again - yet there was no twinkle in them. They lacked that glint which stood out from the dreary walls of the building. She attempted a smile as she acknowledged me, yet the edges of her mouth drooped. She looked agitated and distracted, almost concerned over something. I wasn’t sure how to respond to this unexpected emotion.

“Hey Jennifer.”

“Hi Finn. Umm… How are you?” She replied. I glanced at my watch. 8:41

“Good. I was just wondering… Would you….” I trailed off as I saw her expression full of uncertainty and dread. I couldn’t ask her out like this. “…let me stay with you for a moment?” Darn! Once more, I denied myself a girlfriend, out of my own fear.

“Oh. Ok, sure.” She said back, as what could only be described as relief flowed through her.

“How are you doing?” I asked.

“I’m fine. Just making sure I’ve got all of my books.” I could tell something was troubling her. I knew something was troubling her. She still seemed agitated, constantly glancing over my shoulder. She shifted uncomfortably on her feet. I just wanted to get out of here. She was fiddling with her hair, also eager to get to her lesson.

“Urr… I have to get to maths.” She commented.

Understandingly, I replied, “Alright then, see you around.” I smiled at her. There was no smile back.
