A/N: This is just something I wrote today when I was lolling around in bed... Stupid Swine Flu. Anyway, it's very short. And it doesn't have a plot. Oh well. Enjoy.
Feedback is appreciated.
EDITED 16/7/10: Fanfiction got rid of my semi-line breaks. So, I replaced them with fallforyou. Kinda sucks, but, hey, it looks better than it did without them.
Disclaimer: I do not own The Mediator. Meg Cabot does.
It had all started in freshman year. That's when I really noticed him.
"I bet all the ladies wanna taste of this!" he announced, waggling his eyebrows.
I scoffed. He turned around and raised his eyebrows with interest.
"Got something to say, spider?"
"What the hell did you call me?"
He grinned mischievously, his eyes sparkling.
"Webb. Spider. Ya get? Har har!"
I rolled my eyes at him.
Adam McTavish, class clown and owner of this totally disarming grin. Not that I was paying attention or anything…
"So, Spider, you wanna go egg Kelly's house?" he grinned.
I could feel my heart flip in its cage. I looked away from him to hide a blush.
"Adam! Her dad's a lawyer!"
"Oh, right. Forgot about that. Can we just run into her with our lunch trays instead?"
I laughed at the serious face he wore and, soon, he had doubled over in fits of laughter as well.
Somehow, we ended up being best friends. Well, it wasn't that surprising. I mean, we were –still are- social rejects – him being the class clown and me being, well, albino. But, still, we became best friends. We'd spend long hours in the afternoons doing our homework at the Coffee Clutch, occasionally accompanied by some of the other girls in our group, sipping coffee and watching the sunset.
"You know, Webb, you got some issues. Like that weird Aunt of yours," he said before taking a gulp of his coffee.
"Aunt Pru… well, she's eccentric…"
"That's being nice, Cee. Oh, what if you turned out just like her? 'Eccentric'?"
I glared at him and he grinned right back.
And between all the laughing for no reason and the name calling… I sort of fell for him. And he fell too. Literally.
"Holy crap! Oi, Webb! Why'd you have to trip me for, you man!"
