Welcome to week two! Hope everyone enjoyed that first teeny bit of the story and you're ready for more. I know it wasn't much, but hopefully you get the picture of how Neely's life is suddenly getting very complicated.In this next scene, you'll get a glimpse of another mismatched piece of the puzzle. Let me know what you guys think. I love feedback, it really helps me work on the stories.
“May I join you?” Andrew asked politely. His thick accent and much more formal verbiage always made it hard for me to talk to him. I usually spend more time listening to the way he said things than exactly what he was saying.
“Uh …” I glanced around to scan the crowd quickly hoping Hayden had gotten back. No such luck. “Sure.” I scooted over on the step.
“Great party,” he said as he sat down slowly, folding long legs and a muscled torso onto the narrow board.
I imagine it was pretty uncomfortable for him. That actually worked for me since I wanted him to go away sooner rather than later.
“I’m glad you’re having a good time.”
My voice sounded remote and bored even to me but he grinned.
“I hoped we might get a chance to talk tonight,” pausing, Andrew cleared his throat nervously. “There never seemed to be an opportunity for real conversation at school.”
I only gave him another distant nod of agreement. Andrew has always been the king of not taking a girl’s hint.
