20. Study Date
Class was over and on the way out I heard my name.
"Bridgett!" It was Ryder again.
"You know most people call me Bri right?" I asked with a smirk.
"That's why I call you Bridgett. It's different." He was so sweet, a little cheesy, but sweet.
"Okay, what do you need Ryder?" I asked perking up a bit.
"I was wondering if you wanted to get together later today to study? Maybe at my place?" It was a question I didn't think would be asked so suddenly.
"Sure. What time?" What did I just agree to?
"Right after school until like, sevenish?" He had a certain tone I couldn't distinguish.
"I usually eat dinner around six. We could maybe order some pizza?" I didn't know what I was saying anymore. Was I flirting?
"Sounds good! See you after school." He was just about to walk away, "Oh, uh, do you need a ride?"
"No, I have a car. Thanks. See ya later Ryder." All I could think was how badly this could go.
What if after we spent so much time together he gets sick of me? What if he never really did like me and this is just a trick? So many things could go wrong! I won't know until I go.
I pushed the negative thought out of my head and headed down to my locker to grab my homework for study hall. This time I only had half of a science 4.5 worksheet and I needed to study for calculus, but I would do that later.
