Fall for You

by: Terrell James

It was a clear day on Pen Gu Island and Austin "Gizmo" Maverick walked across the beach thinking about what would it be like to have his first crush. Then, he saw Cody walking towards him.

He caught up to him and said, "What's up, Codes?"

"Not much." said Cody.

"So what have you been up to?" asked Gizmo.

"I've been doing surfing and stuff." said Cody.

"Okay. Need to know. So, do you know anything about first crushes?" asked Gizmo.

"Why ask me?" asked Cody.

"I just need to know. There are a lot of good-looking girls here, but I'm not sure which one." said Gizmo.

"I'm pretty sure that whatever girl falls for you, will be doing awesome." said Cody.

"Yeah, I hope so." said Gizmo.

Later on, Gizmo walked around and then bumped into another penguin. He looked at her and said, "Sorry about that."

"It's okay, really." she said.

Then, he took one look at her and saw this beautiful Gentoo penguin, with hazel-blue eyes, a little taller than Gizmo, same age as him, wearing a gold Big Z necklace. He was completely lost by looking in her eyes.

The girl came to him and said, "Hello? Is anyone there?"

Gizmo paid attention to her and said, "Sorry. I just got lost by looking at your eyes. They look beautiful, by the way and so are you."

"Thank you, I think." said Gizmo.

Gizmo chuckled softly, then she stared at him and said, "This is kinda awkward."

"I know, right?" asked the girl.

"Yeah, I noticed. You like surfing?" asked Gizmo.

"I love surfing. It puts me in a good mood." she said.

"So do I." said Gizmo.

"What's your name?"

"My name's Austin Maverick. Sometimes they call me 'Gizmo'". he said.

"My name's Gabriella." she said.

"Nice name." said Gizmo.

"Yours, too." said Gabriella.

"Thanks."

"Well, I have to get back to the beach. We're having this little party. You could come too, if you like." said Gabriella.

"We're going there anyway." said Gizmo.

"Nice meeting you." said Gabriella.

"You too."
