3. The New Girl
I sat down at our regular hangout bench to find Ash Luke and Cal slumped across the armrests.
"Top of the mornin' to ya laddies" I sing in my best Irish accent.
"Hmmmmf" they all moaned.
I'm in a surprisingly good mood for me today.
They guys suddenly spring up straight and turn to me.
"What. What?" I ask frantically.
They gesture towards the main gates where a pitch black haired pale girl stands. I havnt seen her around here before but damn I wish I had. She's incredible.
I turn around to see Ash and Luke laughing.
"Mikeys in luuuurve" they annoyingly teased.
I turn back to see her sprinting away. I quickly hop off my bench and rush after her. When I'm finally in arms reach I tap her on her shoulder. She whips round staring at me. I'm a bit out of breath and I don't even know if it's from the running.
" um. Are you okay?" I ask. She's staring and it's a little awkward but I'm in awe of this girl.
"Michael" I say with a smile holding out my hand.
"Hi. I'm Lizzie. " she says back, shaking my hand with an even bigger smile than mine. She's got amazingly shimmery blue eyes and smells like a meadow.
"So... Are you new around here?" I ask.
