He was the first boy she had felt comfortable dancing with, and once she had smiled at him he knew he had to make her smile again.
Both were quiet; content to think that maybe if they had said something – asked for a number maybe a relationship would grow but neither was confident enough to say anything.
When the boarders were asked to leave early and he said goodbye she was stunned; he was a boarder too.
She vowed that she was going to talk to him the next dance lesson; two weeks away.
He wanted to know more about the girl with the beautiful smile.
A couple of days later a friend comes up to him "How do you know Christi?"
His friend describes her but he doesn't realise who it is he's talking about til 2 weeks later when his friend points her out. She smiles at them and Corey winks and waves. She rolled her eyes and stuck her tongue at him.
"How do you know her?" Tye quizzed Corey.
"Been friends for ages; she went to my old school."
"So she's a boarder too?"
"Yep... she's single."
"Wha-why tell me that? ... How do you know?"
"I don't now for sure but her first boyfriend and her broke up a couple of months back – he cheated on her. That and she's pretty quiet – not really that social."
See's Tye looking at her and laughs. "I never thought I would see that expression on your face." Before Tye had a chance to ask Corey what he meant Corey called out "Hey Christi! Come here!"
She walked over. "Yes Corey?" then she looked at her feet. "Hey Tye."
Corey smirked as his friend blushed. "How have you been?"
"Ok" she replied, scrunching her nose. "You?"
"Good – got a new girlfriend," Corey replied.
"Yeah – how did you know?"
She looked at him like he was an idiot, "I'm not oblivious."
Corey raised his eyebrows and she mock glared. "Anyway, what of you love life? How's Joshua?"
"Corey, I know you know what happened with Jacob and not that it's any of your business no I don't have a boyfriend."
He grinned, "It wasn't me that really wanted to know."
She looked at him, confused. "What?"
Corey opened his mouth to answer but Tye cut in. "Would you like to dance with me?"
She smiled shyly. "I'd like that." She said as she slipped her hand into his.
Corey was surprised; Tye was usually really, really shy – too shy even to ask a girl to dance.
Christi was shy too but hey who said people needed to be complete opposites to get along?
Please click the little button and review - I will dedicate my next story to you and run screaming into my best friends room at one in the morning (which is basically suicide she almost killed me because I woke her up before 7.30 on a school morning). I have had so many hits on my stories and almost no reviews!
