knows that

1

is out

of

his class

for

today,

so

she hunts

him

down through

the

hallways

of

their high

school,

running

up

and down

the

staircases

and

under

tables

(just

for fun –

‘cause

why not?)

and

outside

the

calc club’s

room,

and

every-

where

until

she

caught sight

of

 

him at

his

locker.

She

ran and

jumped

at him

and

wrapped

him

up in

a

big hug

like

she knew

he

would say

he

didn’t

like

but he

lied.

1 sighed

but

could not

help

the small

grin

that formed

on

his face

as

he looked

at

her smile.

1

rolled his

eyes

at her

as

he shrugged

 

his

shoulders

and

she fell

to

her feet,

not

giving

him

a chance

to

regain

his

balance,

grabbed

his hand

and

pulled him

to

the door

and

sunlight

where

good things

ever

happened

to

people

like

her and

great,

teddy

bear

boys like

2

if he

just

believed

in himself.
