a ni tole the best pick up line/situatin ever?
When class finally ended, Eleanor grabbed her backpack off the floor and stuffed her book into it. She saw feet facing her feet. A note with her name on it appeared before her face. She looked up and saw Wyatt standing in front of her.
“It’s a very important note,” he said. “Life altering. Read at your own risk.”
“You’re kind of weird, Wyatt. You know that, right?”
“Should you be flirting with me, Elle? This is the first time we’ve talked, and I’m very shy and girls scare me. I’m probably still a virgin.”
She arched an eyebrow at him. She’d been practicing that in her mirror.
“Probably? You don’t know if you’re still a virgin or not?”
“I didn’t ask myself if I was or not. It’s a really personal question, and I don’t know myself well enough to bring it up.”
“I’m going to open the note now.”
“I wish you’d reconsider,” Wyatt said.
“I might need it for evidence in my criminal case against you.”
“Good point. Open it.”
She unfolded the paper.
“This is a shark, Wyatt. This is a drawing of a shark.” She held up the note.
“What? You don’t like sharks? What kind of person doesn’t like sharks?”
“I’m not saying I don’t like sharks. I’m saying I don’t know why you gave me a picture of a shark.”
“The shark asked me to.”
“Why did the shark ask you to give me a picture of it?”
“Because he thinks you’re beautiful, brilliant and he wants your phone number.”
Eleanor studied the shark. It was about as well rendered a shark as she could have drawn. For Wyatt’s sake she hoped he wasn’t an art major. Still, it was a cute shark with impressively large fins. He’d even given the shark a red Mohawk.
She folded the paper back up and handed it to Wyatt.
“Please tell the shark I’m sorry. I’m not available.” It shocked her how hard she had to work to force those words out.
Wyatt’s eyes clouded over for a split second, and she saw the hurt and disappointment behind the adorable mask of male arrogance.
“Can you and the shark maybe be friends?”
“I’ve never been friends with a shark before. Will he bite me?”
“If you ask nicely.”
“Worth a shot. Shark lunch?”
