"Goodbye class!" Mrs. Hodge smiled and sent us on our way to find songs on Wednesday.
I was speed-walking to the door when I was alarmed by a
"PRU! WAIT UP!" I turned and saw, gasp, Peter.
"Peter?" I stopped dead in my tracks,
he had come back from being sick, but you could still see a bit of flush in his face.
"I need your help." Peter said.
"With?" I asked, shell shocked, he NEVER talks to me.
"Picking a song."
"What? Your like king of the Beatle People." I pointed out.
"True, but I NEED a song that expresses my feelings." He nodded.
You and me both, kid.
"Oh! Okay, well what are your feelings?" I asked.
"Well, uhm, I like this girl..... a lot, but she's been hurt a lot in her past, and I just want to show her that I am here for her, and that if WE, that's her and I, ever got together, I wouldn't hurt her." He explained.
I nodded, I was kind of excited, I mean, Callie has been hurt a lot in her lifetime.
Maybe, for the first time, my sister was actually having a crush that was crushing back?
Score one for Callie.
"Oh okay, well I will look for a song and tell you when you come over on Saturday." I informed, Callie and Peter ALWAYS go to the mall on Saturdays, it's a ritual, if you will.
"Thanks, Prudence. I owe you one, oh and" He pulled me close.
"Don't tell Callie." He whispered.
Oh, he DEFINITELY is crazy for Callie.
