Today is my third meet with Jak, he's been helping me with my monologue (A thing for drama that I always forget to practice.) if you'd have asked me a few months back, there's no way on earth I would have known I'd be here. But I am.
Jak has also been teaching me a little bit of music on the side, and today is the day that I'm gonna show him what I've learnt so far.
I sat with a drum set in front of me,
drumsticks in hand and a grin on my face.
"Whenever you're ready Lexus."
(Lexus is Jak's nickname for me by the way)
And I did as told, I started playing the drums, Jak playing a tune in time. I don't know what happened really, but it was great, Jak was happy... And that made me happy.
It was only later that day when I recognised the warm fuzzy feeling, hm... I wonder what made that happen....
"We should make a band." I jumped as Jak stirred the silence, knocking me out of thought.
"You really think so?"
"I know so."
I went silent for a minute before nodding, "We should call it.... Number 69." This was my poor attempt at a joke, but it made Jak laugh and that made me smile.
"We should call ourselves.... Our band.... 'Orville.' I think."
"Orville?" I tilted my head. I did not get the joke.
"Yeah, it's cool no?" Oh. He wasn't joking.
"Sure, Orville it is."
He smiled again as we walked, sticking his hands in his pockets. "Soooo.... Sexuality? I know, weird question but uh..."
I shrugged in response as he pointed out a small girl in the crowd, sitting alone, reading a book.
"I dare you to get her number."
"Oh?" I smirked. "You are on." And with that I wandered over to sit next to the girl, I couldn't quite make out what she was reading but it was a big book.
"Hello." I said.
She jumped. "O-oh! H-hello..."
"Did I scare you? I'm sorry! I'm harmless, I promise." I pouted,
harmless? Was I really? Meh.
"N-no... You're okay..." She then turned back to her book, going silent again.
"Can I have your number?" I tilted my head really far right and it cracked, making the girl flinch. I held out my hand with a pen, and she wrote down her number quietly.
"M-my name is Aileen..." She gave a tiny smile before getting up. "I-it was n-nice talking to you...."
"Feli." She giggled, making her way into the crowd and out of sight, Jak wandered over.
"Good work Lexus."
"Do you want it? The number I mean..."
"No, chill, she's all yours." He chuckled and suddenly something clicked.
"I don't think I want to be her boyfriend...."
"Oh? Why not? She was cute."
I smiled slightly, looking up at him.
"I think I like boys."
