“So what class do you have next?” Benji asked me, not really making eye contact. “I’m actually just going home. Usually I’d have Gym, but that’s not on my mind right now.” “Oh” “Yea. So what class do you have with Frank?” “Algebra 2” “Fun” “No, I’m math retarded” she laughed and just walked off. I headed for the doors and started my adventure home.
For the rest of the day I laid on my bed at home just wondering how life would be in the future. Some parts scared me, some I didn’t mind thinking about so much. For some reason I kept building dreams around this girl. I know it’s stupid and a complete waste of time, but a man can dream. My thoughts were interrupted by my cell phone going off. Frankie had sent me a text message asking where I was with the equipment…Oh shit we have practice at his house today.
I busted through Frank’s door sweating my ass off. “About time G-rad” Mikey said helping me carry some things in. “Hey Gerard” Benji waved over at me from the couch. “Hey Benj” I smiled. We carried the equipment in and began practice. We got a few songs in; Benji seemed to enjoy us a lot. After practice was done, we came up from the basement and hung out in the living room. “So what did you think?” Ray asked looking over Benji’s way. “I enjoyed it. My friends from back home would like you guys.” She smiled then turned her attention back to the TV. Just then her phone started going off “NIGGGA” She sounded so excited. Benji got up and walked outside.
