Okay for Now
"Why didn't you run?" He asked. His voice was silk, and though I couldn't see his face, I knew he was cute. I could feel his concerned eyes boring into me.
"I-I c-couldn't." I say, stuttering. The fear that was rattling through me made the stuttering worse. The boy smelled a lot like the woods, but then like a dog. I would usually assume that he has a dog, but the scent ran deeper.
"You don't have to be afraid. Stuttering is not a good trait to have when talking to a dangerous stranger." He spoke with a smile in his voice, which made me wonder if he was joking about the dangerous part or if he was serious.
"I-I S-stutter all the t-time." I say, standing up for myself. I may look tiny, but my tiger strength is a force to be reckoned with. I clenched my fists, but then released them when he began to laugh. I push him.
"I-It's not f-funny!" I yell. The boy fell on his butt. He wasn't a tiger, or he would have fought back, but he did do something that was sort of irritating. He growled! Like an animal.
"I never said it was. I was laughing out of relief. The relief was there because I was about to do something really stupid, until you showed up." He said, sitting up on the cement. A Street light finally turns on, and I look at the boys face. I was stunned. It was an understatement when I said he was cute.
