“Hey Danny, pass me the friggin salt.” shouts Mike who is sitting right across the table from Danny. Danny hands Mike the salt, who in turn decides to dump half the container of salt onto his fries.
“You got enough fries on your salt?” asks Amanda while trying to hold back a laugh.
“Maybe.” Just then the cafeteria door opened up and what came through couldn’t be, but it was. It was the girl that Danny had seen in the window.
“Guys look it’s her.” says Danny, while not taking his eyes off of her.
“It’s who?” asks Mike
“It’s the girl that I saw yesterday from the window.”
“There was nobody there remember.”
“But maybe there was. Maybe they just didn’t answer the door.”
“You know Mike, Danny does have a good point.”
“So what if she is the girl that you saw? What does it really matter?”
“I don’t know…but I’m going to go over there and find out.” says Danny. Danny picks up his tray and walks over to sit next to the girl, who is now sitting at a table by herself.
“What do you want?” she says rather quickly.
“I was wondering if you were the girl I saw yesterday inside the house on top of that big hill on Willard street.”
“What if I am?”
“Well if you were that girl then I would like to know why you moved there.” Danny says as he begins to stare down this girl he doesn’t even know.
“Why are you so interested in that house on the hill Danny?” Says the girl staring back at Danny. He had brown eyes and golden colored hair cut short. He was wearing blue jeans, which were frayed and had holes at the knees. ‘Why would this boy come over here and talk to me’ she thought.
“How do you know my name?”
“I heard you and your friend talking amongst yourselves outside the front door.”
“Yeah but how could you see me if you never opened the door?”
“The same way you saw me, through the window…Now tell me why you are so interested in this house?”
“I have had dreams of me walking up to the front door of that house, and instead of knocking at the door I let myself in, but what I find on the other side of the door is nothing but space.”
“What do you mean space?”
“You know like outer-space”
The girl casually looks down at her watch. “Pity really. I would love to finish this conversation with you, but I have Euro Studies in five minutes.”
“Really, who’s your teacher?”
“Weird…we have the same class.”
“This boy’s a stalker” thought the girl to herself. “Well that’s good to know,” she says.
“Well if you don’t know where it is I could show you…I mean if that’s ok with you…or maybe…we could just uh walk there together…I mean if you already know the way or something.”
“This boy really is a piece of work” thought the girl to herself. “Yes, I do know my way, and I don’t need you following me around asking me all sorts of weird questions. You’re already starting to freak me out.” With this the girl picks up her tray, tosses it away and walks out of the cafeteria. Not even looking to see if Danny dare to follow, which he did.
