Creative Writing: I Thought You'd Never Ask!


The first day back to school for the new year, Bob noticed a new girl in
the class. He stared at her for 15 minutes straight, and quickly fell deep in
love with her. The teacher introduced the new student as Jennifer. Now Bob knew
her name. He deceded to introduce himself to her the next day.

The next morning, as Bob was walking down the hall, he noticed Jennifer
struggling to open her locker. In the struggle she dropped all her books. Bob
took this oppertunity and hurried over to pick up her books for her.

"Hi", said Bob after he had finished picking up the books. "My name is
Bob," he said with a smile.

"Hi," Jennifer said shyly. "Thanks for helping me with my books."

"No Problem," Bob replied. "Well, I'm gonna be late for class, so, I'll
see you around!"

Bob walked down the hall towards his class. "Why didn't I say something
else!?" he asked himself. "Well, theres always a second chance, I'll have to do
it then."

The next day, Bob got his second chance. At lunch, he saw Jennifer
sitting alone at table looking lonely. He decided to go over and sit down beside
her.

"Hi Jennifer," he said, trying to be freindly. "Whats up?"

"Well nothing much really. I'm having trouble making friends here."

"I know, its tough isn't it," he replied, trying to comfort her. "I just
moved here 3 years ago myself. After a few weeks you'll have lots of freinds
though."

"Thats good," she replied as she looked up at Bob into his eyes.

Then there was a moment of silence with just the two of them staring
into each others eyes. Then finally Bob broke the silence and said "I know this
seems kind of weird," Bob said shyly, "But, would you like to go to a movie with
me this weekend?"

Jennifer's face brightened up as she exclaimed, "I thought you'd never
ask!"
