The Quarterback Likes Me?
Meet me - Vanessa Thomas - the definition of a nerd. Quiet, shy, a bookworm, I've got all the 'geeky' traits. And then there's Jake.
Jake James - the definition of perfect. Handsome with his chocolate hair and entrancing weapons known as his eyes. Not to mention popular and captain of the football team.
But sadly with a hot guy, there's a stalker - this stalker being Heidi. She stands at the top of the social hierarchy.
Heidi is the dictionary denotation of what you would call a 'Queen Bee'. A person who latches and grows from the attention of others.
The school 'Queen Bee' Heidi fawns over Jake, as if he's hers - yet she gains no attention. And for the essential growth that Heidi needs for optimum popularity, she'll do anything.
And I mean absolutely anything...
"Vanessa. Hear me out right now. Please," he begs.
"I'm not interested." I go back to my book.
He grabs my arm, gaining my attention. "Just a second," he says.
"Tell Heidi. I'm sure she's interested," I sigh.
"Can you at LEAST LISTEN!" He yells, shocking me in my seat.
Belittled by his sudden outburst, I finally give in. "Fine. What is it?" I suspire.
He begins awkwardly scratching the back of his neck.
"Wow. You shouted at me to listen to you and then you can't even tell me." I pause to check if he's going to say anything. "Heidi is literally down there... just ta-"
"-I like YOU. Okay!" He interrupts, exhaling deeply. "Why can't you stop being in my mind honestly!" He says, running a hand through his hair.
"... erm. What did you say?" I hesitate slightly.
"I. Like. You." He clarifies, his gaze melting me.
He likes me?
Jake James - heir to the Montez industries likes me?
Me, Vanessa Thomas.
I blush furiously.
Save me from a world of drama and a girl who wishes for my impending doom.
Cause that's the life of Vanessa Thomas. Me.
