ONE | MIRANDA
Cant sleep cause tomorrows my last day as a junior—last day to ask Miranda out on a date, and my hands are totally sweating, and my stomachs shrunk to the size of a raisin. Thing is, Ive been trying since freshman year, but every freaking time my brain goes on vacation.
Damn nerves.
Only thing left to do is write her something inspired and corny, let her read it. And wait for success. Or rejection. Or dont-ask-me-out ever. Or…be positive, Colton. Sighing, I bring up my email on my cell and type.
Miranda
No. Backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace, backspace.
Dear Miranda,
A dog barking—the neighbors beagle—makes me look out my bedroom window at the moonlight shining on the rooftops. Hate that dog. Seems he only cares about howling and barking. Beagles should live in England and chase foxes and stuff, but no, people insist on having them living in their homes. Whatever. Concentrate. More typing.
Since the first time I saw you, I fell in lo
Argh. So corny. Backspace a thousand times. Start over.
You know what makes my world spin?
You. Youre my oxygen. My food. The ketchup on my fries.
Okay, this time I laugh at my own stupidity, but Im onto something. Thing is, I dont want her to think Im a poet, cause I hate poetry, corniness, and the like, but at the same time I want her radar to detect Im not dumb.
