I got to school the next morning and I couldn’t stop smiling. Ryder was already there when I got there. He saw me immediately when I walked in. He gave me a quick smile and a wink. I returned it.
Everyone else was already at our table. As soon as everyone saw me, questions were flooding in.
“How was your date?” Meg asked excitedly.
I could always count on Meg for boy talk and excitement. I think that’s actually her favorite topic.
“It was great!” I couldn’t even hide my enthusiasm.
“What did you guys do?” Chloe asked almost as amused as Meg.
“We just went to his house, studied for a while, then we got to talking. Talking became laughing, and before I knew it, he asked me out!”
I replayed our date in my mind over and over again until I was about to explode with joy. It was one of the best days of my entire life.
“He asked you out?!” Trish was now getting excited, which was very unusual when it came to boys.
I nodded, letting my giant grin show.
The rest of the morning I found myself explaining our date. Trish, Meg, and Chloe were trying to come up wit a great OTP for me. I decided on Ryett. It wasn’t the best, but it was better than Byder.
I never wanted a new OTP. I wanted Ryett, I never want to let go of what we have. Our special connection. Our laughs we share. It’s too good to give up. I would never give it up, even for the entire world. I love Ryder, and Ryder loves me.
