Crossing the street
Suddenly that cafe across the street looked even more inviting than it had a few moments ago. I thought to myself “one tall vanilla bean latte with 3 shots of espresso should do the trick.”.
I started across the street when I heard someone call my name. “Damn” I muttered under my breath. I was praying that Jeff didn’t hear, and hoping that if I walked faster I could pretend as if I never heard it. I didn’t recognize the voice so it should be easy to get away from.
“Veda!” There it was again, this time louder than before. I turned my head in the direction of the woman calling my name with every intention of shutting her up. The last thing I needed or wanted was for Jeff and Kelsie to know that I was anywhere near tonight’s events.
When I located the person calling my name, I smiled. It was Mrs. English. She was without a doubt the best teacher this school has ever had. I raised my hand to wave at the same time I noticed Jeff looking in my direction. He had a look of horror on his face.
At that moment I realized that I was standing in the center of the road. Out of the corner of my eye I saw the same thing that was causing Jeff’s frightened stare. Unfortunately, the car didn’t see me.
