Tonight was… unexpected… and it was…
Well, no, not perfect. Perfect would have involved at least partial nudity.
I have a huge chemistry test in two days. I had to study. Really study. No procrastination. No loud Randy-music. No knocks on my door. No dorm room distractions.
When I got to the library, I checked my favorite study spots until I found one that was deserted. I sat on the empty couch way up on the third floor and laid out my notes, my book, my lab reports. And I started reviewing. Especially the parts I missed when I was sick. But then I came to Ethan’s notes. The ones he copied for me. The ones with the cute little sad face at the bottom of the page. And I kind of stopped. To daydream.
I didn’t realize how distracted I’d gotten until I heard a voice ask if anyone was ‘sitting there’. I looked up and found Ethan smiling and pointing to the couch next to me. Immediately my heart sped up but I managed to smile back and say ‘no’… and he sat right next to me. Then I realized I was still holding his sad-face notes so I quickly put them down and grabbed my book. I don’t know if he noticed. I don’t know if it would have mattered if he did.
He wanted to study with me. And I wanted to study him.
I mean, with him…
