Excerpt
There was a girl next to me. The short-haired one from yoga.“Madison,” I could not hide my surprise as I checked her out.  There wasn’t a word todescribe how she looked…only sounds, syllables…she was cute after class but…

“Wow.” Smooth, Jess, why don’t you just grunt?

She lowered her eyes and smiled.

“Thanks,” she said. “Who are you here with?”

“I, um,…” I stuttered as she gave me a once over. I could see it was dawning on her that I

wasn’t exactly dressed for the occasion. Her grin got wider. I knew it was okay to tell her the

truth.  I wasn’t sure why, maybe it was that smile – man, it was the kind of smile that gave you

an adrenaline rush from just being on the receiving end. I had to smile back.

“I’m not here with anyone, just snuck in to see the band,” I said. Her eyes got round. Had

I made the wrong call? She leaned toward me.

“Then why are you staring into the vending machine?” she whispered. “Especially this

one – seriously, who would actively choose papaya fruit leather over peanut M&Ms?”

I laughed. “Well, I kind of got hassled at the door, so I’m um, flying under the radar…”

“C’mon,” She motioned for me to follow her. I looked down, careful not to step on the

back of her dress. We walked up to the table. The girl in the black dress handed Madison a

camera on a long strap. Ah, the other girl from yoga.

“Thanks for watching it,” Madison said as she put the camera over her head. “Look who I found

wandering around the cafeteria.”
