Title: First ‘Hi’
By Muhammad Haruna
It was the life defining moment I have always been dreaming of, scared I am though. Annabel has always been the crush I have since day one, she captured my love at first sight.
Holy Indiana! Did she just call my name? I think my legs are shaking, for a moment everything is moving at a slow pace. I can feel my stomach grumbles, I wonder if she heard that.
‘‘Hy Annabel…’’ I pray the eye contact trick will work, Imaintain eye contact with Annabel. Oh! My heart is beating faster.
‘‘Ehen… James, I was wondering if you could be my date for the upcoming prom night?’’
Whaat…! Did she just asked me out?
‘‘Yes, I don’t see why not’’
‘‘Ok. 7pm, Friday Night. School cafeteria?’’
‘‘Ok by me, I will see you on Friday then?’’ I can’t wait to see my friends face when they see me with the hottest girl in campus.
‘‘Alright, see you on Friday Mr Johnson’’
I can’t believe she knows my surname.
Damn…! She winked at me. Mehn… She walks like a model, I pray she turns around.
Oh yes, she just did.
‘…smiling, she pulled the trigger’
