5. Arriving At Camp
We are pulling into the gates of the camp, and I'm already more nervous about meeting new people. I look out the window to observe the dining hall & soccer field, when suddenly someone caught my eye. I wait for him to turn around, to see his face. When he turns, I duck behind the car window; I hope he didn't see me. My dad parks the car, and I get out; I grab my luggage and say goodbye to my family. As I watch the car pull away, I catch that guy looking at me from a distance. He starts to walk my way, but I quickly grab my stuff & speed walk to the registration office. When I get there, I sign papers, take a picture for a camp collage, then I wait for my "escort" to show me a tour of the camp & to my cabin. Turns out, the guy I saw in the car window, is my escort; gosh, my luck is horrible.
My family & I arrive at the camp gates 10 minutes early, so we were let in & I got registered earlier than usual. I was told that I could be an escort for the new campers this year, so I obviously agreed; great way to meet new friends. But when I was coming back from taking a camper to his cabin, a car pulled in, with a very beautiful girl in the window, she ducked when she saw me looking; but my friends told me she was looking at me, so I took little sneak-peeks of her. When she got out of the car, I was going to introduce myself to her, but she quickly turned away, and sped walked to the registration office. I had to go and take her to see her cabin, so I just followed her & waited until she was done with her registration. When I came to introduce myself, she pretended to not hear me. Then I came to the other side of her & talked to her so she couldn't bloke me out, "I'm your escort around camp & to your cabin; so I have a feeling we'll be seeing each other all summer", trying so hard not to sound flirty. She finally agreed after 10 minutes of convincing; so we walked out the doors.
