Today’s post is a Promptly Penned topic. We all have same two lines to inspire us and/or to include somewhere in our post.
Person A: “How long have you been standing there?”
Person B: “Longer than you’d like.”
“How long have you been standing there?”
“Longer than you’d like. Long enough to see you bust out some serious 80’s dance moves. What was that?”
I could feel the blush starting in my neck and creeping up my face. What was it about this girl? Every time I saw her, I managed to make a fool of myself. It was like some force in the universe was playing a joke on me.
“Aw, come on Amy,” she said, laughing. “Don’t be embarrassed. It was cute. In a dorky, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, kind of way.”
“What do you want, Mellie?” I tried to sound as impatient as possible. I wanted to make her think I hadn’t been dying for her to stop by all day. That I hadn’t been thinking of every reason possible to stay in my dorm room, so she’d be able to find me. I went back to folding my laundry, like she was interrupting my incredibly important task.
Mellie flopped down on the end of my bed, disturbing my carefully stacked pile of clothes. I shot her an annoyed look but she just smiled at me. She knew she was cute.
“So,” she finally said. “Are you going to ask me out at some point, or do I have to keep making a nuisance of myself?”
The look on my face must have been priceless, and Mellie thoroughly enjoyed it based on the huge grin she couldn’t hide.
“Well, um, yeah, so…”
She motioned for me to continue when my voice drifted off.
Clearing my throat, I tried again. “Do you want to maybe go to dinner? With me?”
“Oh my god, Amy!” Mellie threw her arms around me neck and pulled me close. “I thought you’d never ask.” Smiling she leaned in and kissed me.
