Sneak Peek

Will this night never end? Why did I wear this stupid blouse? Thank heaven for my glasses, no one can see my absolute mortification behind them. Now I’m sitting here feeling self conscious with nowhere to hide and all this in front of Drake no less.

I stole a glance at him and looked quickly away again when I saw that he too was watching me. I felt exposed, ugly and if my legs would work I’d probably have gotten up and made an excuse to leave the room. Somehow I made it through the next hour and a half without making an even bigger fool of myself, but the damage was done. There’s no way I’d ever try this again. My one foray into the unknown had been a total bust. After the initial outburst the boys had settled down and not said another word about it, and the class was business as usual, but what were they thinking? It didn’t bear thinking about.

Once the evening was over I took my time gathering my stuff, waiting for everyone to leave before heading out the door. With my head down in my usual way I didn’t see the figure standing next to my car until I was almost there and saw the shadow from the streetlight. My heart was in my lungs until Drake stepped into the light and then I felt my face heat with embarrassment. Was he laughing at me? Did he figure out somehow that I’d done this because of him? I sincerely hope not. Just when I began to beg for the earth to open up and swallow me he walked towards me. “Are you okay?” I nodded my head, suddenly forgetting how to speak. “Don’t pay those guys any mind, they always act that way around gorgeous females. It won’t happen again.”

I picked my head up for a few seconds, surprised at his words, and was thankful for the darkness that hid my blush of pleasure. “It’s okay, kids will be kids.”  I stressed the word kids as kind of a protective measure, or more like to remind myself that he too was part of that number and that I should stop this now before it went too far.  But then his next words shocked me and had me wondering if there was a hidden meaning behind them. Confusing me the way I have been since meeting him.

“They’re not kids. We’re all the same age, eighteen.” I could tell his eyes were on me as he spoke but was too chicken to look at him again. Instead I walked around him to get to my car. “Wait for me, I’ll follow you home.” He turned and walked a few cars down after waiting for me to get into my car and it never occurred to me to drive off. Maybe if I had that would’ve put an end to this whole fiasco.
