1. It begins
He walks into the classroom and sits right behind me. Me! I don't look at him, I can't, but I can feel him staring at me. His beautiful clear blue eyes looking at the back of my head. Trying to get my attention, he clears his throat and gently kicks my foot. I take a deep breath and turn around. “Yes?” I say, trying to contain my excitement.
He sits back with a smirk on his face and winks at me. Chills go from my head to the tips of my toes. I give him a smile and turn back around. Heart beating a mile a minute. Hayes Grier is the hottest boy in the school and he was just flirting with me? Why?
All class he was messing with me. He was blowing on the back of my neck, poking his pencil in my back, peeking over my shoulder to see what I was doing and whispering offensive things in my ear. I had to admit, I was loving it but I don't think Mrs. Cay was too happy, because she kept telling him to seat in his seat because she finally told him to collect his things and move to the back of the room.
“Alright, Mr. Grier, I've had enough of you. Collect your things and move to the back of the room.” she said. “Whatever.” he shrugged then went to the back desk but not before whispering one last thing in my ear.
I guess you could say I was a little disappointed. It sounded weird, but I couldn't smell him and I was pretty upset.
Mrs. Cay told us she wanted us to quietly read pages 216 to 250 in our Government books. Whatever we don't finish is homework. I think Hayes put her in a bad mood. She sat down at her desk ad started reading a red, hard-covered book. It looked pretty big, maybe a few hundred pages and she looked pretty far into it.
I put my books in my bag and start playing a game on my phone. I'll just do it for homework later. In just a matter of minutes, Mrs, Cay's head fell and her gray frizzed hair fell into her face. She was sleeping. Everyone knew it and the quiet was gone. They all closed their books and started talking to one another. I feel a paper being thrown at the back of my head. I ignore it and go back to the game on my phone. Some idiot missed the trash I guess. I feel it again. And again. I was about to tell them to stop but I saw Hayes smiling at me. He motions for me to come back and sit with him but I shake my head and point to Mrs. Cay. He makes a face that makes me laugh then points to the desk beside his again.
“Fine” I mouth. I grab my bag and sit next to him. When I do he smiled and I melt.
“Password?” he says, taking my phone out of my hand.
I tell him. Normally I would never tell anyone, not even my mother but I just don't think when I'm around him. He spends a little time on it then gives it back. “Your new password is my birthday, when you figure that out, you can text me.” he sits back again and chuckles.
“Your birthday?” I repeat. “When's that?”
He shrugged. “Just be careful on how many times you get it wrong, wouldn't want to lock yourself out of your own phone.” he nods as the bell rings.
Mrs. Cay jumps up and goes to the door. “Okay, class, whatever you didn't read, I would like you to read tonight. And, to make sure you actually read it...” she looks at Hayes. “... there will be a quiz on the section tomorrow. Have a great rest of the day.”
I roll my eyes and walk out. I walk out next to Hayes! Before I can say anything else, he winks at me, says, “See ya later, Liz.” then goes the opposite direction I'm going. He know my name?!
