"Haben Sie eine Freundin?" Her eyes were her most beautiful
feature; so big and so bright, but what seemed to have caught my
attention was the sullenness she had no intentions to hide. I
could read it in her motions- and her voice, though she's never
talked directly to me until that very moment.
"…" there was silence once she turned those piercing eyes in my
directions. I gulped silently, sucking in my quivering gut. "Who
wants to know?" She understood me, which was good, but her
monotonic tone made it hard to depict if she was interested or
not. "I-" I scanned the room in search of a poor helpless student
to blame this on, and in finding not a one, I looked to my desk,
scanning the blank page "I dunno," a sigh escaped my chest
before I met her stare "I guess I was just wondering." Something
told me that she knew I was lying, perhaps it was because I knew
she was far to clever to fall for such tricks. "You're weird."
That wasn't what I was looking for… I thought my heart sank in my
stomach. In a way it was good, because maybe my heart would've
been heavy enough to fall on the fluttering butterflies to just
lay there and smother them melodramatically.
Once the bell rang it lifted the awkward air. I was one of the
first to stand though my things were still cluttered over the
desk. "You have a nice voice." she said before I walked away, I
smirk fighting back a full smile. "Oh?"
"Yes, we should talk more." We locked eyes for a moment, though
only a few seconds it felt like much more. Those hazel eyes
glazed lightly with a tent of green could've taken my breath away
at the scene, but I had things to do unfortunately, so I couldn't
be so lucky. "Yeah." I backed away to leave, "Yeah, we should."
when I turned I wore a smile that reached from ear to ear. My
heart survived the fall, the butterflies lifted it back to my
chest, and I felt that in some odd way.. I had a date.
