2. New Boy?

Chapter 2:

The tall blonde haired boy stepped in the room as he interrupted the teacher. The teacher had asked for his name. In a raspy voice he said, "Luke." The teacher said, well nice to meet you. Why don't you take a seat by..." he gestured to me and asked for my name. I said in my annoying scratchy voice, "Ali." "Well like why don't you take a seat by Ali." He said while gesturing to the only empty seat in class. Awkwardly shifted in my seat as he walked by. Before he sat down I managed to get a glimpse at his face and noticed that I've never seen him before. Because we've been all together at school for a couple years, I had met almost every one in our grade, but he was new. Towards the end of the twenty minute homeroom all the kids started packing up and headed to the door. I got up and accidentally ran right into Luke. I looked up and he had a smirk on his face. I awkwardly said an apology as the bell rang and I ran out of class. I questioned, why was he smirking? Ugh why did I even look up?... I'm so awkward. Then a thought popped into my head he's actually really cute... I got to my first hour right as the bell rang and I sat down at the only seat available towards the front I hadn't notice anyone in the class until I took a seat. I saw my friend Clara and Amelia. they both waved when I saw them. Me and Clara have been friends for a couple years but we're not that close and me and Amelia have known each other since we were kids but we haven't spoken much lately which kinda made me sad. The teacher walked up to the front of the class and said "welcome to tenth grade geometry. I'm ms. Scout. I know this is going to be a great semester." Because my school is set up so weird, we have four hours a day for an hour and a half at a time. This means we get to take one class that's meant for a year in only a half a year. It's kinda nice I guess. I glanced around as the teacher was talking and I noticed a couple more kids I recognized but haven't spoken to for years. But then I noticed a my friend Ethan we looked at each other and he offered me a warm smile. I did the same. We speak usually only in class when he's goofing off or when he has a stupid meme he wants to show me over text. We've known each other since third grade and have had multiple classes with each other since. In third grade me and my best friend at the time Maddie both had a crush on him. A little awkward when I look back on it. He's kinda been one of those crushes that doesn't go away. The teacher stopped talking about how the class will go. she said, "so were going to do introductions". I sighed ugh I absolutely hate these. I either say something so generic or something so stupid and embarrassing. There's no in between. She started with herself and said her name, her favorite color, and what she did over the summer. Under my breath I mumbled "what are we five?" A couple people went down the row and said how they went to Paris and Spain over the summer and of course every other girl said their favorite color was either pink or purple. Ethan said he stayed home and played football with his friends all summer. He's on the football team so their was no surprise there. When it got to my row people started talking from the back up so I had to turn around to see who they were. When I turned to see the person directly behind me my heart started racing. It was Luke. He said, "my name is Luke, my favorite color is blue, and I hung out with my band members all summer." I thought to my self, "he's in a band." I would have never pegged him as a person who plays an instrument. When my teacher gestured for me to go I said, "my name is Ali, my favorite color is grey, and I hung out with my friends all summer." As the rest of the kids said their introduction I heard a "hi Ali" from behind me I turned around and saw that Luke was smiling at me. I mumbled a hi and turned back around. Then Luke said, "so your not gonna run into me again are you?" He said with amusement in his tone. I let out a little chuckle and said, well I wasn't planning on it, how about you you? I said with the same amusement in my tone. "Me neither" he said. We both let out little laughs and I turned back around. That was weird I thought. We spoke as if we have been friends for forever, it's kinda nice. I glanced at Clara and Amelia they both had toothy grins on their face as they both gave me little winks. Then I looked at Ethan and he was looking at Luke with a glaring look. I said, "damn Ethan, chill" under my breath, so no one heard. I don't know why he would be mad at him. We only had a very brief conversation. Ethan has only seen me as a friend, at least I think?

Hey guys so I've decided that I'm going to update every Friday afternoon/night. I might throw a couple chapters in here and there through out the week, but don't count on it. Thank you for reading! This was so fun to write! And thanks again! -Wylee
