The mysterious John Swift was a closed book to everyone. He was the boy who sat next to me in health science. He kinda kept to himself and seemed more introvert. But I guess that’s what intrigued me. I wanted to know what went on in that head that was covered with dark locks. His shy demeanour pushed a lot of people away but I was not one of those people. I wanted to know everything about this boy.
Thing is I am shy too. I didn’t like the big fancy parties that his clique often had. I was just another girl in one of his classes. I wasn’t anything special. I hadn’t really spoke to him, other than to ask him what page we were on or what the date was. He must think I’m some anti-social person who hated the world because I never spoke. But in all honesty, I never knew what to say.
“Ok Class so I want you to read chapter 12 and answer the co-responding questions. I’ll be here if you have any concerns. ”
Sighing to myself, I plugged my headphones into my ears and took out what I needed to start my work.
I felt a light tap on my shoulder. I looked up from my note pad to see that the arm that tapped me was from the one and only John Swift.
“Can I help you?” I asked,taking out my earbuds.
“Do you possibly wanna work together? I left my textbook at home and there are no more spares.” He inquired, smiling down at his notebook.
I had to regain my composure and seal the fact that I was gobsmacked. John wanted to share a book with me?! Out of everyone in the class?! Ok, calm down. Maybe he just doesn’t want to move far.
“Uh,yea. Sure.” I replied. This had to be some kind of joke.
He scooted his chair closer to my desk and placed his notebook on his lap.
“Do you want me to scoot my book over so you have room?” I asked. Clearing my throat trying to get the dryness to go away.
“No,cutie. I’m good.” He chuckled as he noticed my cheeks blush from him calling me cutie.
“Positive. So do you wanna read the page first?”
As John and I went back and forth reading passages from the chapter, I noticed his chair was inching closer and closer to me.
“Ok, let’s answer the questions.” I picked up my pencil.
“Question, number one. Can I have your number?”
“What?” I asked dumbfounded. I looked at the page and that was not the question that was written down.
“Can I have your number? That’s my question.” John smirked at me.
“Uhm, yea. You can.” I quickly jotted it down on his note book.
“Now, that that’s out of the way. On to the really questions.” John chuckled at my blush again.
“Maybe you should forget my text book more often.” I had no idea where this confidence came from but John seemed to appreciate it.
He winked at me before continuing, “Maybe I should.”
