1: I am coming for you, are you there?"Hello"
"Yeah, its me"
"Listen, are you going to the Jeroldo Mall tonight?"
"I was hoping to catch a movie with you."
"Sweet. But I can't."
"Cool. I can swoop by. We could go to the library."
"Nah, I'm happier alone."
"Hm. Okay, Spark. Adieu"
I didn't mean to let Renaldo down so easy. He was the bread to my butter. But, lately, after I received an awesome letter by a sweet admirer......he's been asking me out.
You're electric blue eyes charge me like an electric plant. You're hair leaves an impact as I see it blow. You're lips are red as a pretty ripe strawberry. I wonder if they taste like one when I walk by and I smell your Chapstick aroma.
I don't know who calls themselves Butterfinger, but I do know this: Whoever it is likes auburn ponytails.
My phone buzzed again. It was Ren. Again. Ohmigosh.
" Hey Spark. Sorry to bother ya. Just calling to see if you were available Wednesday night. Thursday's a Teacher- School Administrator conference at Ohio. Please say yes. I wanted to take you to the new restaurant around Chicago."
"That's like 3 hours away. Are you sure?"
"Yeah. I have a hotel reservation for us."
A ringing noise made my ears wiggle. That's what I do when I am nervous. Hotel. Reservation. For. Us.
"Uh. Rain check. I don't do road trips."
"You do. Last time I checked, you enjoyed going on the road."
I paused, searching for an incredible lie. " Well, Doc Rio told me to take it easy. I told him how queasy I feel after an hour."
"Are you stalking me?"
"I'm not at you're window."
"Then stop searching me!"
Renaldo laughed. "Hey, I'm just firing shots back at you. I came prepared for what you had in store."
I felt uneasy. The way he said it was casual.
"I want to see you. Can we Skype?"
I turned on my old Dell laptop. I hit the Skype icon and his face was popped of the dusty screen. I don't use it unless I Skype or E-mail my teachers. I text and take Instagram pics on my new Windows.
"Sparks. You still look fine." He licked his bow shaped lips.
I blushed. "Please."
"I'm kidding!" He laughed. He was drinking Cola and popping Mentos. He liked the rush of adrenaline, he told me.
"So, what are you doing?"
"I am Skyping you and that's all. I thought you were busy."
"Oh..." I paused.
"I knew you were just feeling awkward. I'll pick you up around 6:30. Capish?"
Renaldo made it at 6:29. He was in a pressed Polo-styled Tee shirt, rugged pants, and a black belt. He was looking attractive tonight. I hope that I could sneak in a kiss. He looked so huggable. I wrapped my arms around him. We leave the house.
His arm was 6 Mississippi's down my back. I was flushed. He looked at me. "Are you okay?"
"Yeah. Cool beans."
We made it to the movie on time. I sat beside him. The movie was an action romance. There was a kiss scene and Renaldo stared at me.
He said something and leaned in.
He kissed me. Aggressively. AAAH!
