I spent most of Wednesday hiding from curly, so he wouldn't try to get his glasses back. That night I stayed up thinking maybe, just maybe. I wasn't going to lie to myself, he was cute, and I do like him. Not to mention we both liked art, and I had a feeling he might just like me.
I, surprisingly, woke up early this morning , and got dressed slowly. Waiting for my mom to leave this morning. When she was finally gone from the driveway I made my way to school. As I walked into the parking lot I could see Calum walking with Summer. She looked pissed off, and I laughed assuming Calum was bugging her about something. Eventually he branched off toward our friends. I saw Summer look back toward him so I got an Idea.
I bolted and jumped right onto his back. "Morning Cal!" I screamed in his ear. "Jesus Winter!" he yelped and then laughed to calm himself. I slid off his back and looked toward the door, Summer was gone. "She likes you." I said and he turned to where I was looking. I looked at him and he was confused. "Summer." I said clarifying. He snorted, "No she doesn't."
"She does. She just doesn't know it yet. And you mister, Like her." I said poking him. He rolled his eyes but didn't deny it, I smirked as he turned away. I walked over to the rest of the group and everyone said their hello's. They all lit a joint, while I stood nearby, watching.
Like an instinct, I got chills and turned around. Without even searching I saw curly. He wasn't paying attention, but he seemed aware of my presence, because he looked right up at me when I looked at him. We stared a while, then he smiled and looked away, I stayed staring at him. "Quit staring at him." Calum said and I turned to him and rolled my eyes, even though my cheeks were burning.
Later, during Lunch I was on my way to my friends, but curly blocked my path. My eyes widened when he stopped me, I attempted to escape but he blocked my path again. "Can I have my glasses now?" I shook my head smiling. We were outside, in a little out cove I guess. He took a step closer toward me, and I bit my lip at the sudden closeness.
"Please." He said, but I couldn't respond. My breath picked up and my heart pounded. Before I knew what was happening, his lips brushed against mine. My eyes shut close as I took in every little detail. His hand cupping my face, the way he leaned into the kiss, me standing on my tippy toes. Everything.
He pulled away, and I opened my eyes slowly. He dropped his hands, and smiled at me. I couldn't hold back my smile. "You know you're not a bad kisser curly." I said folding my arms across my chest. "I'm glad you think so." he said. "Yea but I don't know, It was just one kiss." I said teasing, he pretended to be surprised. "Don't worry, there may be more." he said softly, my heart couldn't go any faster. "Just don't kiss and tell." he said and I laughed. "I couldn't if I wanted to, I technically still don't know your name." I said feeling slightly embarrassed.
"Oh so you just kiss anyone don't you?" he accused and I punched him. "No just cute guys with curly hair and brown eyes. Oh and they have to wear glasses." I said describing him. "Sure you do." He said, suddenly he reached into my pocket and grabbed my phone. "What are you doing?" I questioned, he didn't answer, he just typed on my phone. Then he handed it back to me, and walked away constantly looking back toward me.
I looked down at my phone and saw a new contact. "Ashton." I read aloud, and smiled like an idiot.
