I quickly pulled away and looked down at my feet. There was a slight awkward silence between us.
I'm having an awkward silence with someone that I just met.
In my new school.
In my new town.
"Well," I started, breaking the awkward silence," I'll see you around, I guess."
Mariah smiled and nodded.
On with my life.
In the caf, I swear I was having a heat stroke.
There were so many people in this huge cafeteria.
My first instinct was to go on the lunch line being formed.
Once it was my turn, I looked at the most beautiful person I've ever met. But she was a lunch lady.
She had straight black hair, non wrinkled skin (which was olive colored), and big, brown eyes.
"Hola." she said, with a deep latin accent.
"Hola." I replied, a bit softly. Thank God I was half Cuban.
"Que tu quiere comer? What would you like to eat senorita?" the lunch lady, whose name was Gloria, asked.
"Just a hamburger please." I replied, looking around.
She placed the plate with hamburger and fries on my tray and told me to have a nice day.
I better make a note to get her phone number.
This was the worst part of lunch.
Trying to find where to sit.
I was about to take a step into hell when someone yelled my name.
It was Mariah, the girl I had ran into today.
I walked over to her with a smile plastered on my face.
She was smiling her heart out. "Hey Cam. Oh, can I call you that?"
"Sure." I said, a little too quickly.
I looked around the table and saw a pale skinned girl with brown hair and gray-blue eyes.
I think she caught me staring at her because she looked up from her lunch and smiled slightly at me.
She was extremely beautiful.
Is it me or do everyone today I meet have pale skin and beautiful eyes?
"I'm Jazmine, it's nice to meet you." the beautiful girl said.
I didn't know what came over me but I was actually intimidated by her.
She had such a soft, smooth, and beautiful voice.
It was like music that flowed with the river.
My throat tightend as I said, "I'm Cameron."
Yep, Cameron McAfee.
The one in the new school of this new town.
The one with such a dark past there seemed not to be any light in the present.
