This Totally Awesome Boy. Part Fifteen
I wrote a Facebook status about sucking in my biology class. A guy from high school responded. I hadn't talked to him since graduation but I had known him since elementary school. He offered to help me study for my next test. And I said yes. He was cute and I did need the help.
We met and went over notes and he helped me cover the chapter. When we were done, we started talking about music. We both loved it, and had insanely similar tastes. When we left, he asked if I would want to hang out that weekend, maybe see a movie? I said sure.
That Friday night, nothing seemed to be going right. After getting a bloody nose as soon as he pulled into my driveway, I figured that things couldn't get much worse. I guess that was the understatement of the year. It was truly the Date From Hell. To make matters worse, we went to the theater I work at. To make matters even more worse, HE was working. To top everything off, he was checking IDs at the door of an R Rated movie...our movie. He was standing right at the entrance. So there's my bio tutor, reaching my hand, my hand went for my pocket.
"Hey," we both said as he glanced at our tickets. I saw a look in his eyes that I hadn't seen before. He seemed to look at me and Date from Hell as if we were doing something wrong. It was sad. He looked broken. But we walked into the theater and took our seats.
