Danny Cullen is a fearless boy, with a broken heart. Alba DeTamble is a bright girl, with a dizzy past. They have crossed paths. Both have a secret only each other can understand
Chapter 2: Teammates
Danny: I was breathing loudly as I led Dylan and the girls to the meeting point. Nicole and I were holding hands, we crossed paths with the others camper until we found four empty spots at the dinner. Dylan and I sat between the girls
"I want to welcome you all to our camp, I'm sure you'll have a great time!" an old lady started addressing us "because these is a boys and girls camp, both sections are divided; boys will stay beyond the hill, while the girl's cabins are near the river!"
Alba: Ruby and I sat on the back of the dinner; we didn't want to be noticed. Not by a soul. As I listened to Mrs. McCain speak she reminded me of my history teacher and I chuckled.
"What?" Ruby smiled at me "oh yeah I know!" she laughed when I whispered in her ear that the woman looked like Mrs. Wire
After the little talk we were sent to our cabins to settle in. I had been placed with Ruby and two other girls named Nicole and Cloe. I certainly hoped they were nice. Ruby placed her bags in the lower bed, while I was left on top. The other two girls joined us shortly after. They were laughing
"Did you see their faces?" the black haired girl smiled. The other nodded
"Hi" Ruby said excitedly "I'm Ruby Jenkins" they shook hands and then I introduced myself
"I'm Alba DeTamble, nice to meet you" they stared at me for a second, and then turned away
"Hi! I'm Chloe Turner" the black haired girl hugged me "this is so cool, I thought we're going to have some boring roomies!"
"Yeah I know!" ruby smiled "we thought so too"
"Hey! Nicole Miller" she also hugged me and ruby
We sat on one of the beds as Nicole and Chloe sat on the floor. We talked for a while. About why we were here and how our parents had convinced us to come
"My boyfriend actually wanted me to come, we don't see each other much" Nicole blushed
"Wow" Ruby was shocked "how did he…?". Nicole laughed
"He has his ways" Chloe told us "he has a certain charm"
"I can see that!" Ruby laughed, "But how come you don't see each other much?"
"Well, different states, long distance relationship" Chloe nudged Nicole
"It's complicated" she frowned.
"Come on we want to know!" I begged
She then told us the story of how they had first met, their first date and the most romantic stories I had ever heard, maybe except for the ones mama used to tell me
"And he has a bike" Chloe added as Nicole finished her story "a real bike!"
"And he's allowed to drive it?" Ruby asked intrigued both girls nodded
This Danny guy seemed like the perfect boy, an angel.
Suddenly a knock on the door interrupted. It was time for lunch . We headed to the dinner, and that was when I first saw him.
He was wearing black jeans, a military polo and black sneakers . His hair was messy; his eyes were green as emeralds. He looked like a model . He waved at us and we headed towards the table he had saved
"Danny, this are Alba and Ruby" Nicole said as he shook his head, he kissed my cheek. I started to feel all red and noticed ruby had turned hot sauce red already
"Hey" he said sweetly "it's a pleasure to meet you"
"You too" Ruby smiled, I nodded
