I walked into my homeroom on Monday morning. I sighed as Iput my textbooks, notebooks, and pencils on my desk. I hadn't gotten any sleep last night. I tried, really I did. Something kept me up though. I had been thinking. That's what kept me up though,knew it. I looked at my friend Eliza. She nodded at me and continued to write. I glanced at the paper but she had it covered completely.
"Eliza, Hey I needed to talk to you. I-" I had come into the room a minute before the bell rang and I ran out of time to talk. Eliza rushed out of the room without so much as another glance at me. Weird. Eliza and I had been friends for so many years. If something was bothering her I would think she would tel me. Maybe she was just in a bed mood. I hurried into my first period class. I took my usual seat beside Whitney. The room was extremely loud for only having twelve students in it.
"Hey," she said as I sat down. I nodded to her. Whitney was a good friend of mine. One of my best actually. I had known her since first grade. She knew that if I didn't talk it meant I was either tired or upset. So, she didn't bother to talk to me for the rest of class. I had barely paid attention that class. The next three classes were just as boring as the first. Lunch was when I finally started to wake up.
My best friend Kylie was sitting across from me beside Caitlin and Amber. They were my besties too, but Kylie was the one I had over every weekend. Caitlin and Amber were sitting on either side of Kyli. Amber was next to the end, and on the other side. Amber was sitting beside her boyfriend Alex. Alex was cool. He had short blondish brown hair and blue eyes. He was really funny and he was perfect for Amber. I hadn't know him for very long but he was awesome to hang around with.I looked atKyli and saw that she was staring past me. I rolled my eyes. I knew what she was staring at. She was staring at her crush. She was obsessed with him. No joke. Obsessed. She knew his eye color, hair color, how deep his voice was, and what he wore. Everyday. She actually made a chart on what days he wore his blue Nike basketball shoes (every day by the way). She wthed him at lunch. She sometimes ignored the rest of us and just watched him. She knew his scudule by heart and sometimes went out of her way to se him. I looked over my shoulders to see David. He wasn't paying any attention to Kyli but seemed insanely into his conversation with Matt. Matt was one his friends. He waskinda cute too. I didn't know much about either of them.I looked back at my friends and snapped my fingers in Kyli's face. She shook her head a little bit then looked at me.
"What, Nikki?" she asked me.
"He's going to think you're creepy. Stop staring," I told her. She nodded but I could still see her trying to look at him past me.
"Caitlin, did you get the-" I was cut off for the second time today. David walked by a table, stopped, then came back and put his hands on our table.
"Hey, Kyli, Caitlin, Amber,"he said nodding at each of them. He turned towards me last and smiled. "Hey, Nikki." I nodded at him.
"Hey." He nodded back and kept walking. Matt was ahead and just realized that David had stopped walking with him. He turned around and waited. At that moment, Braden stepped up and sat beside me. He started being his usual loud self and so I just ignored him.
"Whatwere you saying, Nikki?" Caitlin asked. I thought about it. I shrugged.
"I can't remember..."She shrugged and started talking to Amber and Kyli. I thought about what i wanted to ask Caitlin but I couldn't remeber...
After lunch, I went to my 5 period, American Cultures. I liked this class. I could pay attention in here. For the next 45 minutes, I sat and listened about the ancient Egyptians. When the bell rang and I headed to mycalc class, I stopped at my locker. Whitney, who's locker was five down from mine, asked me about my chemistry notes. Oh, God. Thats what I was going to ask Caitlin. We ad a HUGE test today and I hadnt studied at all. I spent my next two class worring about my test. I tried to cram stuff in my head in my studdy hall seventh period but it was really loud and nothing was making sense. I really needed to start paying attention in my classes!
I was at my locker right before eighth period and was getting my things. I turned around and ran right smak into David. My eighth period items went flying to the floor. David went to pick them up at the same time I died and we ended up bumping heads.
"Im so sorry!" I said rubbing my head. "I wasn't paying attention. Sorry!" I got all of the things near me and David grabbed the ones near him. He shook his head and smiled as he gave me my notebook and papers.
"Don't worry about it. It was my fault.I wasn't looking were I was walking." We stood there for a few more seconds and then we started laughing. After a few more seconds of that, I looked at the clock. One minute left. I looked back at David.
"I gotta go. I'll.....see ya later." I said hesitantly. Would I see him later? At lunch, yes but I wsasn't going to go running through the school to see him. He smiled at me. I turned to go but he stopped me.
"Hey...Um would you want to...do something this weekend?" he asked. He seemed nervous and I thought about saying yes but Kyli popped into my mind.
"I can't sorry. I have to-" Saved by the bell. "Sorry I gotta go. Bye." Then I rushed into the room. I couldn't think all period. I kept thinking about David. He asked me out? Was that what he did or did he just want to talk about something? Did he like me or maybe he just wanted to talkabout Kyli?I think he likes her. I've seen him look at her a couple times but I've never told her because she didn't need anything else to obsess about.I tried to concentrate on my test but, sadly, I think I flunked. Great.
