This is Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The population is about 200,000. Who would've ever thought, in a city with 200,000 people, I could find the one, the one who could finally make me feel whole again? The story is simple, and the story is short, but the story also carries the magic of finding the real thing, and this is how it starts...
JOSHUA
He spied her for the first time standing in the center of a small group of girls. He watched her wild hand motions paint pictures in the air and her dark, expressive eyes catch fire and tell a story that made the girls huddled around her break and fall apart in all directions, dissolving in high-pitched laughter. He noticed how the light betrayed the hint of brown in her  jet black hair, and how her full lips curved into a smile he'd never seen before on any other girl. The girl paused abruptly and lifted her almond-shaped eyes to meet his, she spotted him. Joshua felt his breath catch in his throat. In the late evening, and with the orange flames dancing a salsa in the bonfire behind her, she looked like an African princess. She smirked a knowing smirk and reconfigured her focus on her friends. This girl was definitely a looker, he couldn't help glancing her way from time to time even after he joined his group of friends. It wasn't until he couldn't see her anymore that he came crashing back down to Earth, suddenly aware of everything all at once.
"Hellooo, earth to Jasper. Are you still with us?" Kent waved his meaty hands in my face and proceeded to make zoo animal noises. I smiled briefly, deciding he was definitely circus act material. "Kent, I promise to be anywhere you want me to be as long as you take these Tic-Tac's and shove the whole freaking thing down your throat before you kill everyone in the state of Tennessee.
"Ha ha, very funny." he said as he took the pack and tipped back a few. Kent had been my best friend literally forever. Some of my earliest memories were of him and I playing on the swing-set in my backyard and going to the aquarium in Chatanooga. He's also responsible for every detention, suspension, and write-off i've ever received from school. He was an idiot, but he was also my best friend. We were such good friends i'd do anything for him. Even go to stupid parties like the one I was currently at. Since a few summers ago, Mark Jacobsen hosted a party at his house in Myrabella, to celebrate our last few days of freedom before school started back up again. His house was gigantic, he had a pool, and a backyard that went on forever, so, why not?
"So, who are we pulling tonight?" I asked as I surveyed the girls in attendance. They ranged from short and thick, to tall and skinny and everything in between. I let my eyes continue to roam, tracing the slopes of the figures of the worthy ones. My eyes did an automatic lock when I spotted her again, but this time she was alone. Me having the brass balls that came pre-installed with every male in my family, wasted no time standing around and rushed into action. "Hi!" I said as I jogged to her side, immediately feeling stupid for my overly enthusiastic tone. "How's it going?"
"Um, hi," she said skeptically,"I'm fine."
"I don't think i've ever seen you around, and I know a lot of people." I said, trying to sound a little more confident than I felt."My name's Joshua."
"Karma," she replied "and that's weird that you've never seen me considering we go to the same school."
Where I lived, I was zoned for Senegal High School, but I got a zone waiver to go to Oakfield High for their unique academic program. Looking at this girl, i'm glad I did.
