Walking into my first class of the day, I’m surprised at how many
students are here already. I took too long meeting with the Senior guidance
counselor, discussing whether or not skipping out on team sports would hurt
my college applications. Now I’ll be the very last to sit down, since everyone
filing in behind me doesn’t hesitate before taking a seat. Usually, the seats up
front are the last to be filled, but maybe it’ll be different with the advanced
placement classes on my schedule.
Towards the back, there’s one empty seat left. There’s just a backpack
and, I grimace as I look closer, a letterman’s jacket, hanging over the chair.
Whoever is sitting here must be one of the students standing around chatting
in a tight circle on the other side of the class. And they’re a jock, which could
make my experience in this class a lot rougher if the teacher is going to pair
us together for the entire year.
The teacher walks in, and the people socializing scatter to their seats.
That’s when I notice him.
As if in slow motion, Micah Williams turns around and catches my eye.
There’s a pretty girl attached to his side, as usual, and he pulls her in a brief

has a larger-than-life personality in general, a presence that you can’t deny.
It’s hard not to be enamored by him.
“It’s Lukas, right? I’m Micah,” he says, and it takes me way too long to
shake myself out of my trance and realize he’s made it all the way across the
room and is standing in front of me. Smiling at me with his twinkling eyes
and a wide grin.
Speaking to me.
Shit. He’s speaking to me, and I’m sitting here like an idiot, dumbstruck
by Adonis himself.
I sputter, and then attempt to act normal again.
“Sorry, yeah, Lukas is right. We’ve had some classes together but never
talked.” Six classes together last year, actually, but who’s counting? And
we’ve never talked because I turn into a bumbling idiot in your presence and
I wanted to spare both of us the embarrassment.
My hand reaches out to grasp his, and the moment our hands touch,
there’s a spark. And by spark, I mean an actual spark. A tiny pop of
electricity and a tiny flash of light.
“Ouch, sorry. I’m all staticky. Anyway…Don’t you normally sit in the
