"Hey. So Uumm. What did you want me here for?" I ran up to him after school.

He wasn't really that hard to find, he was actually just laying down at the front field casually. Dusting off his pants, he stood up, towering me a couple inches.

" I have something for you. Actually, it's a proposal. " He smirked.

I felt my eyes narrowing suspiciously at him.

I also had the feeling that he only became my partner because of this, "proposal".

" What is it? I asked.

He chuckled, and got out a folded paper from his pocket.

He got closer to me, letting me read what was written in the paper.

" My Bucket List. " I murmured. Huh, it looks just like my handwriting.

My eyes went wide.

" Hey! Give me that! " I reached for the paper, but he was at least six feet so I couldn't even get a hold of it.

" Nuh uh uh. " He wagged his finger from side to side, teasing me.

He kept on wagging it, and I had no choice.

So I bit his finger. Hard.

" Oww! What the- Seriously? " He shouted, letting go of the paper. 

I smirked, " Ha ha. "

" Now I have it. What are you going to do about it? " I stuck my tongue out at him.

He gave me an evil smile, but I just kept on sticking my tongue out.

"Haha." I kept mocking.

My eyes widened at what he did.

"Ew!" I shouted.

He bit my tongue!

"Ha! Now I have the paper. Again." This time it was him who was mocking me.

I groaned. God, I feel like a child.

"Okay! Fine. You win." I muttered, while he had a smug smile on his face.

"So. Are you ready to hear my proposal?" He asked.

"Yea, yea. Whatever." I mumbled, frowning.

I waited for his next words, but he wasn't even moving his lips.

"What is-" I asked, but he interrupted me.

"I want to help you." He bluntly pointed out.

"What? Why? About what?" I tilted my head in confusion.

"With your bucket list. I want to help you finish it." He grinned up at me.

I rolled my eyes, "No." I said.

He pouted, making his gray eyes bigger.

Oh god. It was unbelievable how he looked so adorable!

"Please? Rachael?" He said in his puppy dog voice.

No. You need to be strong! Don't fall for it Rachael! Don't fall for it!

I groaned, "Ugh! Fine! You win!" I threw my hands up in the air dramatically.

Silently, he fist pumped the air, and I was tempted to throw a rock at him.

He looked into the paper, "alright. I suggest, we do the bungee jumping first."

"When? Oh wait, there's one problem." I paused. 

"What is it?" He lifted one of his eye brow.

"I don't have money." I looked down on the floor, embarrassed.

He lifted my chin up, "Don't worry about money. I got lots of them."

I rolled my eyes, "so your saying your rich?"

He chuckled, "you can say that."

"Alright. When?" I asked.

"It can be tomorrow if you like. We could skip school. Well, if that's okay with you." He smirked.

Oh no... Ditching? 

"O-of course I'm okay with it. Skipping school. Y-yay." I laughed nervously.

Oh who am I kidding. The only time I was absent was when I had a high fever.

"Oh yea. When was the last time you ditched?" He asked me like he knew I was lying.

I didn't answer, but kept quiet.

He laughed, "I thought so. But don't worry. Your a 5.0 girl. I'm sure it won't hurt to skip one day."

I smacked his chest, "shut up. Tomorrow, it is then."

I gave him a small smile and walked away.

"Wait!" I stopped.

"What?" He tilted his head.

"Are you sure you wanna help me? I mean, it's just a stupid bucket list you know. It isn't really that important." I told him, while looking him in the eye seriously.

"No. I want to help you. I don't mind helping you actually. And besides, I haven't done anything fun in a long time. And I'm pretty sure, your bucket list will include tons and tons of fun." He wagged his eye brows while I chuckled.

"Goodbye stranger. Wait, what's your name by the way?" I asked him one more time.

"My name's Cole." He smiled, and walked away, as I did the same.

For sure, this will be interesting. This encounter with Cole may take my whole life for a crazy turn.
