there he is
“Hmmm, hmmm, hmmmâ?
I hummed the lyrics to my favorite song.
I stopped about halfway around the city when I got hungry.
I went into a place that sells beagles.
When I walked in I immediately blushed because
Derrik was at the counter taking orders from the customers.
I walked slowly, about as fast as a glacier.
I crept up to the counter,
hiding my face with every chance I get.
“Hi, have I seen you before?â?Derrik surprisingly said.
“No, you haven’t seen me before.â?
I quickly said back.
He said “Are you sure? Do you go to Winter High?â?
I didn’t want to answer so I just said “excuse me.â?
and fakly pulled out my cell phone as if I just got a call.
I pulled the cell phone over my ear and said “hello?â?
even though nobody was on the other line.
“Hold on, I’ve got to take this call, but can I have one plain beagle?â?
He said “sureâ? when I was walking out of the shop.
