Alex stared blankly at the girl who had just spoken to him, "I said, is this seat taken?", she asked again.

Alex snapped out of it,"N-no."

He shook his head a little.

"Thanks. It was hard to find one. Too many seats were taken.", said the girl as she sat down. She looked over at Alex.

"I'm Paige, Paige Oscar, by the way.",the girl introduced herself,as she reached her hand out to Alex to give him a handshake.

"I'm Alex , Alex Alvarez.",Alex shook her hand.

"Alex, hmm...what a nice name.", said Paige.

Alex brought out a slight smile. Paige kept talking,tossing her head as spoke. Just listening to her made his cheeks sting and turn red.

Quickly it faded away, when he heard the bell rang. This meant class has started! As everyone ran to their seats, he and Paige turned forward to face the teacher.
