Scenario: A Musical Theater Lock-In you've been looking forward to all summer long.
Best Case: You and all your best friends have a fabulous time, your crush falls madly in love with you, and you get amazing material for your college applications that gets you early admittance into their theater programs.
Worst Case: Your best friend brings your mortal enemy to the lock-in and insists that you be on the same team mere hours after you catch your father making out with the person in charge of the lock-in. The drama totally overwhelms you, making it impossible to charm your crush and leaving you wanting to lay down on the floor and cry. Not exactly a formula for success.
I let out a sigh that sounds more like a groan and a person I didn’t realize was standing in front of the table laughs.
I look up at him, having to crane my neck way more than usual, because this dude is tall. And lanky. And hot. Like surfer hot, which is not a look I even realized I was attracted to.
I am smitten.
And momentarily speechless. I clear my throat, trying to remember the intricacies of speech. Why is it so difficult?
“Hi,” I say, my voice barely a breath.
“Hey,” he says, with a head bob and a smile that makes me want to smile back.
So I do.
