Yes, I saw him in the hall. Then class. It was just as good as a Celebrity Moment. And it was real.
Heart pumping. Smile ecstatic. Big sigh. And then you were gone.
Then a few weeks later, I thought I saw you again, but it was somebody else. I must have been dreaming. I must have.
I thought I saw you asleep at lunch, drooling on your Biology book. It made me smile.
Sure, you're real, after all.
And then somebody choked on a burrito.
I wasn't certain I could save the day, but I'm glad I did.
Of course, I didn't want to be interviewed by the school paper.
Suddenly, it was as if everybody wanted me.
Everybody was looking at me.
Expecting, great things.
I just couldn't speak. And then he winked at me.
I was filled with laughter. It was a moment I wanted everyone's picture. Even if I didn't know them, all that well.
