The sounds of keyboards surround me as other students rush to finish the summer homework, I assume. 'Beanery' is the usual hangout place for the students of NYU. At least, that's what the barista told me, when my eyes widened in awe as I entered the coffee shop.
I lived in Arizona my whole life. But NYU, New York City, was my dream college. I would be a freshman starting in the next few days.
My headphones blasted the sounds of happiness and joy. The usual medication for anxiety, my playlist. I sip my tea taking in the scenery around me. But how could one beautiful boy stop my heart?
His laughter is heard as I remove the music source from my ear. His head, thrown back, shaking his head full of dark curls. He brings his soda to his mouth, calming down. Setting the cup down, his eyes come up. Making contact. Green meeting my hazel. A whole new world. His smile falls slowly by his face, taking me in. But I break the contact, putting the headphones back in.
I continue scrolling through clothes on my laptop, when I look up. He's still looking at me. A smile grows on his face.
