17. Meeting in the backyard
It is Saturday night. I’m in my room studying. Lottie, and some friends of them went to a beach and spent the day there. They invited me but I refused. I had extra rehearsal in ballet.
Because I spent the whole day dancing I have to stud now.
I sat in my study table and open my book but I start to think in my choreograph. All of sudden I’m dancing. I know it sounds weird. But I always do this. It all I need to be perfect.
I dancing that when I do a I kick my study table and making my pencil case fly through my open window and falling in my backyard. Great!
I get outside quickly to pick up my pencil case. I use my cellphone's light because it is too dark. I’m looking for it when I heard a familiar voice
I turn around quickly. And I see Louis standing behind the fance that dissever my neighbor and my backyard.
"What are you doing in the Smith's backyard?" I ask
"Theirs soon, Josh, is having a little party"
"Oh I thought you said you were free on Saturday night."
"I thought you were busy"
It is then I realize how I’m looking. I’m wearing a big white t-shirt and little pink short. My hair is in a messy ponytail.
"Don't start" I say
"Relax Alison. I am just praising you....so what are you doing?"
"Looking for my pencil case"
"Is it this one?" he says showing a pencil case in his hand
"It hit me on my head"
"It's not funny!" he complains
"Yes it is!" I say and then tried to take my pencil case of his hand "Give it to me"
"Because I don't want to"
"Seriously, give it to me"
"First I will look what there is inside"
"It's a pencil case. There isn't anything really different"
"I always like to see what there is inside people's pencil case"
"I can't believe you still have this!"
"What about it?"
"I gave it you"
"Yes. We were in 5th grade, I broke your pooh's ruler and you made me buy another one, a hello kitty's ruler and you still have it"
"I've made you buy a Hello kitty's ruler?" I say laughing
"Not only that but some years ago you also throw coke on me"
I stop laughing. I don't like to talk about it.
We stay in silence for a while.
"Why you did this?" he asks
"I...I...I..I didn't like how you were close to me...I didn't know what to do...I.."
"Louis!"someone called him interrupting me
He stayed there looking at me.
"Louis!" the person calls again
"You better go. They are looking for you" I say
He gives me my pencil case and walks away.
