I hummed the tune of "spells like teen spirit" by Nirvana. Clutching the straps of my old bag tightly in both hands.
" I like that song"
Someone said from behind me. I jumped, turning my head to look at them. A tall boy with blond hair and bright blue eyes walked next me, blushing slightly, and nervously stuffing his thumbs into his back pockets.
" nirvana right?"
He asked as his cheeks tinted with a brighter shade of pink.
" uh, yeah"
I stiffened my arms and held onto my backpack straps a little tighter. I'm not exactly comfortable with meeting new people.
I turned my head to the sidewalk the two of us stood on. Watching my shoes lay flat on tan blocks, covering and uncovering the cracks I walked on.
" well, um, I'm Luke"
He said quietly, pulling a hand out from his jeans and pushing it in front of me.
Awkwardly I brought my hand into his, shaking it quickly and pulling away.
