It was a humid day in Chicago as Emily raced down the downtown sidewalks. As fast as she went, she knew she would be late for summer school. She took a slight glance at her wrist-watch, hoping she would have at least a bit of luck. Luckily, she had 5 minutes and she was closer than expected. She walked to class as everyone had stared at her like she was some kind of freak. Emily ignored the rude comments and continued to her class. Re-gaining her breath, she finally made it to class as she plopped in her cold seat.
"Okay, students. Turn to page 46 of your physcology books and answer questions 1-5. Best of luck to you all."
Relaxed, she read every word as it were nothing, when she knew she couldn't understand a single word. Rhia, her shoulder partner, turned to Emily and asked, "Hi! I'm Rhia. And you are?"
As pleased as possible to find someone so nice, Emily replied, "Emily. Nice to meet you!"
"So, wanna ask if we can do the assignment together?!"
Rhia quickly raised her hand as Mr. Buldon turned his head slightly,
"Mr. Buldon? May we work with our partners?"
"Yes. But no chit-chatting. It has to be about the assignment."
Therefore, Rhia and Emily worked their brains off answer each question carefully.
The bell had rung while Rhia and Emily had finished the last question.
"Bye! Hope to see you soon!" Said Rhia with so much joy.
Emily replied, "You too..."
For the rest of the day, Emily couldn't get Rhia out of her head.. She tried so hard, but nothing worked. She had wondered if she had fallen in love....
Emily had known she was lesbian, but she didn't think she'd ever fall for someone so soon and so easily.
Rhia and Emily had rode the same bus to and from school, therefore, they sat together.
"So, Tell me about yourself!" Said Rhia with no hesitation.
"Well, I'm Emily. I'm new to this summer school. I had felt I should get used to the school over summer. I am extremely anti-social and I have very little friends because of that. I love anime to pieces. I am adopted but I love my family very much. I have Manic-Depression Disorder. Oh, and I'm lesbian."
As Emily blurted those last four words, she started to blush as Rhia looked her in the eyes.
"Tell me about yourself." Emily managed to say.
"I'm Rhia. I've been to this school since 9th grade, first time in summer school though. I am very shy as well, but I'm only this nice to people who have a good aura to me. I LOVE anime as well. I live with my grandparents. My parents died in a car accident when I was five. I don't have any disorders that I know of.. And I'm 'Curious' as I say it. I don't exactly understand who I love.." Rhia's face turned orchard pink as Emily looked into her sparkling eyes.
"Sometimes you have to ask yourself questions like I did to find out my orientation... questions like, 'Who do I show more affection to?'" Emily replied, thinking it would help her a bit.
"Well, now that I think of it, I do think girls are more attractive than boys.." Rhia exclaimed, looking down at the floor.
"Exactly. Boys always break hearts. Plus, a girl knows what other girls go through.. Periods, pregnancy, etc...." Said Emily, so filled to the brim with excitement because she had found someone just like her.
"Emily..." Rhia said with a crack in her voice.
"Yes?" Emily replied.
"I know we just met, but to me, It feels like i've known you for ages.. I think you're so beautiful and I love your aura. It's so bright and cute. Your eyes remind me of a swaying ocean on a hot sunny day. Your skin sparkles in the sun and your hair is so perfect. Emily, would you prove to me that girls are better than boys...?" Rhia was so embarrassed to ask this question so soon.
"YES!" Emily was filled with love as reached over to hug Rhia tight.
"Hehe... Can you call your parents to ask if you can come over? My grandmother won't be there though. I'd like to spend more time with you." Asked Rhia as she smiled.
"Of course!" Replied Emily as she pulled out her bright baby blue phone.
"Hi Mom! Is it okay if I go to a friends? We have to do a science project."
"So?" Rhia asked crossing her fingers.
"She said yes." Answered Emily.
"Yay!" Shouted Rhia.
