"You'd be perfect...if you didn't eat like a squirrel."
Frowning at what Karl Holt just said, I looked out the kitchen window and saw a squirrel near the old pin oak, its tiny paws holding an acorn, nibbling at it. I eat like a squirrel? What did he mean by that? I knew I didn't eat very much, but did I really look like a squirrel when I ate lunch at school?
Karl stuffed his hands deeper into his pockets, shook his head and shrugged. A section of his white-blonde hair fell into his eyes and he pushed it back. "Doesn't matter anyway, does it?" he asked, stepping closer to me. He put his hands on my shoulders and tilted my chin up so that I was gazing into his ocean blue eyes. The frown immediately melted from my face. Nope, it didn't matter what he said about me and squirrels. They were cute anyway, so he must think I'm cute, right? I had had a major crush on him forever and now in my fourteenth year of life, we were about to kiss. I was more than ready. I closed my eyes. Needless to say, my heart was doing a race to the finish line. Music was playing in my ears--the 1812 Overture, actually. So this is what love is like, I thought.
