Who do I sit with? Daniel, a new friend I want to get to know more about and won’t get to see at lunch, or Jordan, my best friend who will probably make me laugh the whole movie but I’m still hanging out with all summer?
You have chosen to sit with Jordan.
I walked over to Jordan with a smile on your face, already half-laughing because you know that y’all will probably talk about something stupid. What will Daniel think though? I thought, looking over to see him staring my way. As soon as we locked eye contact, he looked a little broken. Like he was being replaced or something. He knows I am best friends with Jordan, right? I waved at him, and he slightly waved back, a broken smile on his face. I leaned over to Jordan and whispered,
“Can Daniel come over here and sit with us?”
“Hell yeah Ria, of course. I need to meet this new man anyways. Even though I already know who he is.” Jordan said.
“Thank you so much Jords.” I said, looking over at Daniel, trying to get his attention by waving. He finally looks over with a partially shocked look and I make direct eye contact with him. I wave him over and he walks to us with a huge smile on his face. He sits in the seat next to me and leans over to whisper,
“Who is your friend, next to you, I mean?” He whispers very quietly, to the point where I almost couldn’t hear him.
“That’s Jordan, did I not tell you about her?” I whisper just as quietly, as the movie is starting and I don’t want to disrupt the class.
“No, I don’t believe you did tell me about her. But I have heard of a Jordan in the… percussion ensemble, I think.” Wow, smart language too.
“Yep, that’s her. Jordan . She’s very smart too. She doesn’t think so, but I’ve been trying to convince her to be on the quick recall team forever. She may not listen to me, but I listen to her, only because she helps me out when I’m about to do something stupid but I don’t know it is. Does that make sense?”
“Yes, very much so. She’s really into this movie, isn’t she?” He says while looking over to Jordan on the edge of her seat.
“Probably, she’s a big Disney fan.” The movie playing was Mulan. “Jordan’s funny when it comes to Disney. Even if she’s seen the movie ten times, she still finds it interesting. I can watch a good movie once, but seeing it again isn’t very intriguing to me. I’m also not a huge fan of Disney, I like more rom-coms and action movies. They may not go together but who cares? Not me, hehe.” I said really awkwardly off the top of my head. Fun fact about me: I get really awkward around guys I liked. I hadn’t noticed it at first, but Daniel’s eyes are really blue. Like, really blue. And his hair, oh, his beautiful hair. Wait, this can’t be. Am I, falling for Daniel? I just met him too. And it’s the end of the school year. Why now?
“You seem to be deep in thought. Is everything okay?” Daniel asked, seeming a bit concerned. Awww we practically just met today and he already cares.
Will you lie to him and say you’re fine, or will you briefly explain what’s on your mind?
Sorry this one’s a bit shorter but the next one will be better.
