I hate coffee.

Mind you, we weren’t here for my tastes. You see… It was my bargaining chip.

Every Tuesday morning, I would see her come into class with one of those cardboard coffee cups.

I thought of ways to catch her attention, as I sat at the back of the classroom. She was always there, sitting in the front row, taking notes. She was different, never accepting the invitations to the parties; I would know, because I did.

I had thought of the perfect plan and had boldly executed it. I walked up to her as she was packing her bag and asked her if she wouldn’t mind helping me study.

I wasn’t flunking.

I simply wasn’t trying.

The last push to convince her? I told her I would get her as much coffee as she needed.

And so, at 8:00 am on a Saturday we met here at Booksie’s café. I listened to her quietly as she went over all the lessons diligently. Hours came and left, my eyes were glued to her. She looked up smiling and pointed at our empty mugs.

“I think we’re due for a refill?”

The coffee wasn’t that bad actually.
