A story

Another story for a change.

Lovely auburn hair, bright green eyes, full red lips- That was Adam's dream girl. Her name was Audrey and she studied in his class. He loved looking at her. He had had a crush on her since he was in the eighth grade. They were now in the eleventh grade and he still hadn't gotten over her.

She was the most popular girl in school; who wouldn't be with those looks and that personality!? He was a non-entity, completely inconspicuous. She was the head cheerleader and he was a Math geek. She was tall and had a model's figure, he was thin and lanky. Opposites in every way, but opposites attract, right!?

Adam used to stare at her all the time but he had never had the courage to even talk to her. Once in a while she would smile at him and after that he would be flying on a cloud all day. His friends used to tease him about his hopeless crush but romantic that he was, Adam always hoped for a miracle.

It had gone on like this for a long time. He the silent admirer, she the clueless object of his attention.

But then one day, it all changed. It was like a scene from a movie.

The hallway was crowded and Adam was walking in a daze, solving a Math problem in his head. Audrey was surrounded by her entourage of giggling girlfriends. They were walking towards each other and it had to happen. Bang!! They bumped into each other, books and papers went flying. They both bent to pick up their things. Everything moved in slow motion. Their eyes locked and Adam thought that his long-awaited miracle was finally going to happen. The crowd around them melted into blurred faces. They gathered up their papers and books and stood up still looking at each other. He could see that she was going to say something. Her eyes were glittering and then she said 5 words which sent shock waves through him and made the blood rush to his face,
"Dude, watch where you're going!!"
