Awkward by JD Daley
I was seated beside Madeline two rows from the back of the class and managed a semi confident smile at her in answer to her questioning look. It didn’t take long for me to sneak a look in the direction Mr. Perfect. He was still facing the front of the room and I silently thanked God for that. I got to fully appreciate the back of his head, who knew that someone could have a perfectly sexy head back I pondered.
“Em Alex, Alex” Madeline whispered
“What” I chided her.
“You are doing it again…Are you ok?”
“Why wouldn’t I be?” I asked
“oh no reason, except that your brain seemed to take a walk to never never land every time you look at him” She scolded with her pencil pointing at my distraction. Not wanting to draw attention I gently hit her hand down and gave her the death look.
One thing to be said about Madeline is that she never misses a thing no matter how inconsequential it may be. That’s when she nodded i the direction of the girl that was giving me the look that says, if looks could killed I would flay your skin from your bones and decimate what remains in the fiery pit of hell! I visible drew back in my seat with a wide eyed shock as she raise her brows, smirked and whipped her hair as she turned to give all her attention to ‘Mr. perfect who might be taken’.
Funny I have seen the wrath of women before but never had I seen any quite take on the images of the big green hulk with scorching eyes, wild claws and steam coming from every pore in her face. Did I break some unspoken rule with one look. I pinned this moment as the one and only moment of utter weakness to never be repeated.
“Yeah, I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t want to imagine what she just did to you in her mind” Madeline said with a laugh.
“I don’t think I could have avoided it” I answered “But let’s not find out” I added.
