I couldn't sleep; it had been like this for weeks I just couldn't get her out of my head. It was confusing. It was scary. It had always been the same all the way through my freshman year and all through my sophomore year but now everything has changed and I'm not sure what to make of it or even what to do about it.
The person who had me all confused was Ashley Davies. The most popular girl in the school. The girl most girls and boys would love to get the chance to talk to. The girl with no worries. The girl with the perfect boyfriend, the perfect life. I had never even spoken to Ashley I always knew my place she didn't mix with people not in her perfect circle. I stuck to my life my close group of friends Chelsea, Carmen and Shannon. I was happy. That was until I walked into my first class of the year and was assigned my seat right next to her.
I sat down quietly just wanting to get the class over and done with when I heard her voice "hey Spencer right?" my head snapped to the side of me I had never expected her to acknowledge me presence never mind actually talk to me. "Hello?" she repeated.
"Sorry I just zoned out yeah I'm Spencer your Ashley yeah?" she smiled and nodded her head.
The rest of the class was like that meaningless small talk. The bell rang and she shyly smiled at me and said goodbye. Well that was weird I thought to myself.
As I was slowly making my way to my next class I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket. I smiled it was from my best friend Shannon.
-plzzz skip with me I h8 history plz plz pl -
I thought about it for a whole minute before replying
-nope no way sorry Shan it's the first day you know we have to leave it for at least a week before we start skipping x-
I slipped my phone back into my pocket and finally arrived at my next class, history. Everyone was standing at the front of the class while the teacher was trying to find the seating plan. I quickly made my way over to Shannon who already looked completely bored.
"Hey" I whispered. She turned her head to face the other way.
"Come on its not that bad we might even be sitting next to each other" I smiled at her hoping to get her in a better mood.
"Pfft don't think so I've already seen the plan it's alphabetical don't tell miss but the plan is right in front of her on the desk" she smirked at me.
Yay I thought Shannon's over her little mood. That's one of the reasons I'm proud to call her my best friend she can never stay mad and anyone for longer than 5 minutes tops.
About five minutes later when our teacher had actually managed to find the plan that had been practically in front of her the whole time she started reading out the plan.
"Right everyone were going to be sitting in alphabetical order starting from the back of the room"
I lost interest after that and just slightly listened while messing around with Shannon until I heard my name.
"Spencer Carling the back table please" I slowly made my way over to my table and slumped down into my seat just about to put my ear phones in when I heard the teacher say the next name.
"Ashley Davies next to Spencer and the back please"
My head shot up and I made eye contact with Ashley as she started walking toward the table. I started to look at her properly now I hadn't really noticed last lesson. She had the most beautiful eyes I had ever seen her lips were a perfect shape and her hair was so silky looking and smooth. My eyes drifted down her body slowly taking her in. I snapped out of it and quickly fiddled with my I pod trying to recover from the feeling that was running through my whole body at that moment. I felt the blush covering my checks.
"Would you look at that two lessons in a row I think you're stalking me" Ashley beamed down at me before talking her seat. I looked towards Shannon who was still standing at the front who was mouthing "WTF" at me. I was hoping she was talking about the fact Ashley was talking to me and not the fact that I was staring at her in a very strange way before she has sat down.
I looked towards Ashley who was waiting for a reply and grinned at her before answering "well it looks like it's your lucky day"
