Crash Into Me Chapter 7
~The Next Day~
I sat in the courtyard today just after lunch(during
the free period I usually had this time every week), and I could barely concentrate. On my books, or the conversation
I was having with Viv. Was it because I was mad at Dave? Probably not. Was it because my car was probably gonna be
in the shop for about a week? Don't remind me. Maybe it was because I have a hot date tonight with a hot guy. Probably,
but who knows.
"Dayna!" Viv exclaimed. I sat up straight, coming out of my inner monologue. She laughed and pointed
at my silver RAZR, which was vibrating ontop of my AP Algebra book and singing to us:
would get to know me
Maybe you would love me
I’m so ordinary
And if you would let me know you
Maybe I would
Wouldn’t we be something?
As much as I love Saving Jane - one of my favorite bands - and in particular
the song "Ordinary", I was waiting for this call all day.
"Hey!" I exclaimed while looking at Vivian, who was suddenly
as hyper as a puppy on caffiene pills.
"Hey Dayna..." Aaron trailed off. "You won't get in trouble for being on the
phone with me right now, will you?"
"Nah, I have a free period."
"Good." He seemed relieved. "So, about tonight..."
"Any ideas for what to do?" Good question.
"Not really... Dinner, maybe?" I gave Viv a desperate look,
and her response was a thumbs up. Thanks. Loads of help there, Viv.
He laughed. "Why didn't I think of that?
Sounds great, and I know this really good place."
"I have my moments..." I joked.
"I'm sure you have more than
moments." I could feel my cheeks blushing slightly, and Viv looked at me like I had just turned into a little pink teddy bear
or something. "Should I pick you up around 7:30?"
"Sure..." I trailed off. I told him my address.
see you tonight."
"Call me Day."
"Okay, Day." He laughed. "Wow, I
should write songs!"
I giggled. Wait, me? Dayna Terrance? Giggling? Whoa. This is big. Okay, maybe giggling
doesn't seem like a big deal, but a giggle like that one? Big deal. "I'm glad I could inspire you."
"Bye again." Click. I sighed as I closed the lid of my phone.
"Damn," Viv said, "You haven't even
gone on one date with the guy and you're already lovesick."
