My Ranking Points
The whole day I kept hearing people whispering about me and Ares, those whispers followed me around like annoying gnats.
Then, at lunch, he came up to me.
“Hi, Jenni, what’s up?”
I turned to see Ares, he looked so handsome, with his blue jacket and his freshly combed orange-red hair…
WAIT… WAS I INTERESTED IN HIM?! NO NO NOOOOOOO!
“er… Hi, Ares. Uh… you’ve probably heard all the… rumors?”
It sounded more like a question than a statement.
He smiled cooly, “Yeah. That’s why I wanted to ask you…”
“Do you wanna go out? Like, a date?”
Do you sometimes get that feeling where the world freezes and you know you’re supposed to do something but all you do is stand there like an idiot? Your mouth dry as sawdust?
Well, that’s how I felt.
He was so much unlike the other boys, who stuttered and blushed beyond belief, who shook when they asked a girl out. Ares was calm and cool.
I coughed nervously, “sure, uhhh… when?”
“Tomorrow. After classes.”
I nervously brushed a mocha-hair from my head, “well… bye.”
His smile didn’t waver, “well, it’s a date.”
He walked away, Hollie squeezed my arm, “OHMIGOSH! YOUUU GUUYYYSS!”
I shook her off, “it’s nothing.”
She shook me, “OH NO! It’s something!”
I shrugged her off, my voice became cold, “Why?! Why do you only care about boys and beauty?! You’re so shallow and boring!”
Her eyes became sad, then sad melted to anger. “you should go…”
“Hollie…” I grabbed her arm,
She shrugged off my grip, “JUST GO!”
Tears spilled over her eyes as she ran away.
Very nice!! 🙂 I’d just like to know what chapter it is, so it’d help to label it at the beginning of your post, though.
