2. 2


I was anxious up until I saw how her eyes lit up when she saw me walking out of the door. I met her smile with one of my own and words started flowing out of my mouth without my permission. It had been a long time since I had felt this comfortable instantly with someone I had just met. We were already good friends.

We walked easily, not one single awkward silence hanging over our heads, until we reached her house and she let me inside with a sigh.

“My brother might be home,” she said, as she closed the door behind her. “He’s very nice, but he likes to bother me when I have friends over, so now you’re at least warned.”

I couldn’t help but smile, and tell her that I wouldn’t be bothered, and we took our bags into her kitchen and sat down to do homework.

It hadn’t been more than half an hour, less maybe, when I was 6 problems in, chewing the pencil and just about to give up on math forever, when Jennifer’s brother walked in to the kitchen, and not so-subtly gave me the once-over.

“Already home, sis?” he grinned, putting his hands on her shoulders and bending down to look at her paper. “Ah.” He looked up at me, winked, and then kissed her cheek as he backed away.

“Math,” he said as he wrinkled his nose and went rummaging through their pantry, presumably for something to eat.

“Noah, this is my brother, Samuel.” She then looked at him, now biting into an apple as he continued to look at me, and I couldn’t tear my eyes away from his as he smiled at me. “If you’re not going to help us, then you might as well get out.”

“Rude,” he said, not even looking at her. “And it’s Sam. Just Sam.”

Jennifer was perfect. She was the ideal idea of a supermodel. Her personality made her even greater. She had a wonderful laugh and her cheeks tinged pink when she got shy or embarrassed. We clicked and she made me laugh too. She was so beautiful that I had had trouble talking to her on that first day we met.

Her brother though… He was cocky and he was tall, dark hair falling into his eyes, but his smile was big and just by the stance of his body he exuded confidence. He wasn’t exactly pretty, he was just very… normal, but the way he looked at me made me uneasy and my stomach felt weird.

I couldn’t find my breath as he walked up beside me to look down at my papers.

“Sam is a senior and has gotten nothing but straight A’s in math. He could probably do all of your homework in just a few minutes, right, Sam?” she said, laughing.

“That would take away all of the fun for you guys. You have to learn it, not just have someone else do it for you.” Sam looked at me, the cocky grin gone. “I’ll gladly help you if you want me to,” he said.

Time went by very fast after that. Sam pulled up a chair, and I forgot about my upset stomach when he took my chewed up pen in his hand and started writing down some rules while explaining them to me. The conversation never dulled, as we sat there in the kitchen solving math problems, Jennifer shining with pride, Sam with a small smirk on his face, and me wracking my brain to come up with solutions that actually made sense.

I wasn’t used to having this much fun with other people than my five trusted friends.
