"Hi!" A voice bubbled. It took me a moment to realise who it was.
"Anna?" I asked.
"Yeah, Jake the new dude! Hi."
"Soooo..." I repeated. "What did you want?" I asked as politely as I could so it didn't sound like I wanted her to go.
"Oh. I just wanted to say hi. I'm bored. Did you know, I just ate a whole bar of chocolate?! And then I ate strawberries, but I dipped them in sugar..And then I had loads left over, so I ate all the rest of it!!"
I laughed. "Woah - you gotta stop eating like that!" I smiled a heartbreaking smile without meaning to.
This was my chance.
I could do it, couldn't I? "So. Anna.." I cleared my throat.
"Mmmm?" She asked, I could still hear the hyperactiveness in her. If that's even a word.
"How do you feel.. about me?" I blurted out, in my smoothy smooth voice, but it didn't worked. I kinda choked halfway through, dammit.
"Umm.." She coughed. "You're smoothy smooth?"
"I mean - do you like me?"
"Sure! You're a cool friend."
"But..Do you like me more than a friend?"
"C-Can I call you back?" She stammered.
"Sorry!" She apologised.
"S'ok." I said dully, and hung up. I returned to my laptop.
