I am sorry but, I got so bored I left the Sandlot.
Nothing amusing was happening. And I'm pretty sure Kenny DeNunez, the pitcher caught sight of me. He was my partner in math.
Well we sat next to each other and buddied up if the teacher said we needed to.
I decided I was going to the diner for a coke.
The waitress was Wendy's friend, Norma, and she gave me a root beer as I sat at the counter. When I pointed it out she realized she switched orders.
I watched her, to see who the drink belonged to.
He looked up and smiled at me. What was I supposed to do? I couldn't just turn around fast. It was too late. Wait…how long was I thinking about this?
So I kind of just smiled. Louis got up from his booth where his friends sat with him and came over to me.
I hope I didn't look as nervous as I felt. Or else I'd be a complete mess.
My black eye wasn't exactly something I wanted to be showing off.
He placed his baseball cap on the counter and smiled again. One of us was bound to say something,
"Hey" He said.
Oh, sweet Jesus.
"Hi, Louis." Kind of awkward since we didn't know what to talk about and his buddies were... observing us. I choose to start the conversation; music, "Do you like this song?" I asked about a random song taht was playing on the juke box. It was a cool new song by The Drifters called 'Under the Boardwalk'.
He took a second to listen to it. When the word 'love' was mentioned he grinned and scoffed a bit.
"Yeah it's okay." Louis pretended to look down but, really he was glancing at his friends. They were giving some sort of signal. Louis turned back to me. His wheat hair falling on his grass green eyes.
"Are you going to the carnival that's coming to town, in a few weeks?"
"I might go."
"Well…would you want to go with me? I'm a nice boy if you and your parents want to know..."His friends gave each other disappointed looks, I guess. My heart was in a whirl.
"I'd love to."
"Gotta go. Bye!"
I left that diner skipping all the way. I have a date with Louis Phillips! It was something I could tell Wendy about! He didn't even mention my eye!
I was so full of sheer happiness; I wasn't watching were I was going.
"Whoa!" A voice shouted. Kenny was riding right towards me, and stopped right on my foot.
"Ouch!" Have you ever got your foot ran over?
"Amelia! Sorry…sorry." Kenny said taking his tire off my foot, "So…what's going on?"
"Oh just getting my foot crushed that's all." We both laughed.
"Sorry 'bout my friends yesterday. Being jerks and all." I nodded and we stood there at the corner not saying anything, "Maybe tomorrow do you think you can come to the Sandlot?"
"That's cool Kenny. I gotta get home. Bye."
All and all, it was a pretty great day. I got a boyfriend, making new friends at the Sandlot. Yeah, this summer was going to be awesome.
Or so I thought. The reason this chapter is called 'Bad Day part 2' is because when I got home my folks told me that I was going to an all girl's school. In a few weeks. For the whole damn summer.
