I walked in the cafe and breathed in the smell of coffee. I could instantly feel myself relax as I stepped up to look at the menu.

I was knocked out of my trance when a blonde boy spoke to me.

"Hey," he greeted. "I'm Ashton."

I smiled. He was cute. He wore a white band shirt with a bandana in his curly hair.

"I'm Delilah," I smiled and pulled the sleeves of my sweater over my hands more. I wasn't used to random people greeting me.

"Well umm I just couldn't help but notice you. I really love your hair," He giggled and looked at his shoes. "Could I have your number? I'd love to take you out some time."

I blushed at his compliment and nodded. He seemed nice enough.

He reached in his pocket and grabbed his phone. While he did so, I saw a green haired boy at the table behind him. I could see a piercing in his eyebrow. I'd never seen that kind of piercing before.

"Here," Ashton said snapping me out of my trance again. I typed in my number and handed him the device back.

"Thanks! I'll text you!" He said before turning around and walking towards the boy with colored hair. The boy looked at me and gave me a light smile before turning away quickly. My face heated up. He really was cute.

"Next!" called the girl behind the counter. "Oh hey, Delilah! Same as usual?"

"Oh yes! How are you, Katie?" I replied giggling. Her and I had been friends since we were kids. Until recently, we even lived together before she moved in with her boyfriend.

"Good! How's the painting going?"

I smiled wide, glad to be able to talk about it. "It's awesome! I'm going to apart of this art show soon! I'm super nervous!"

She laughed and handed me my order. "You'll do great as always."
