Kevin: Unlucky? Maybe not.
"We’re moving to a different classroom starting tomorrow because this classroom is being remodeled. We’ll be moving to classroom 205 in the D building, so don’t forget to go to that class instead of this one," your foreign language teacher announced.
"Ugh damn it. My class before this is sooo far from that class, which means I have to walk further," you complained.
You liked where you sat. You were surrounded by your friends who have been taking that same language class with you for two years already. To your right sat a cute boy from France with the sexiest French accent you’ve ever heard. He’s been traveling around the world, so he picks up on new foreign languages very quickly, which was a great advantage to you because he helped you during tests.
Even though your teacher did not assign seating arrangements, you knew there was a chance that people would try to snag the seats next to your friends and the French kid because they wanted to get A’s in that class too. Having a previous class too far from the new foreign language classroom put you in a great disadvantage.
"Hey, can you save me a seat tomorrow, Tiffany?" you asked your friend.
"Sure! My class before this one is near the new classroom anyway."
The bell rang and you walked out of class to finish the rest of your daily schedule.
—-The next day—-
You were at your history class, the class before your foreign language one. It was 15 seconds before the bell rang and you sat there grumbling at yourself, thinking about the long walk in the rain to get to your next class.
Once the bell rang, you shot out of your desk and speed-walked to class.
You finally arrived at the door of your foreign language class, and you found out that all the seats near your friends were taken.
Looking at Tiffany, you shot her a dirty look, and she mouthed “Sorry.”
There were only two seats left open, which were the most unwanted seats at the corner. You took a seat, still feeling pissed off about having to sit far away from your friends and the smart French boy who helped you during tests.
"We have a new student from Danville, California. His name is Kevin Woo. Let’s all give him a warm welcome," your teacher announced. He pointed to the last open seat next to you, gesturing Kevin to sit there.
You looked up to see the new student. You could not believe that someone as handsome as him would go to a school like yours … and you could not believe that someone like him would sit next to you. He looked x10 cuter than the French boy who you used to sit by. Everyone in the class had their eyes on Kevin. The girls on the other side of the room started talking amongst themselves, laughing and giggling while keeping their eyes on Kevin too.
Who would’ve thought that you would get so lucky.
Kevin sat down and you tried not to stare at his flawless looks. Even from a few feet away, you could smell his scent, which made you swoon even more. Kevin turned his head toward you.
"Hi, it’s my first day being here. Since I’ll be staying for a long while, it’d be great if I got to know your name."
"I’m _______," you stuttered a reply, almost forgetting your own name.
"Nice to meet you. I have a feeling we’ll work well together," he smiled cheerfully.
When class ended, Kevin tapped on your shoulder, “Can you show me around school during lunch? I need to go to the book room to rent a textbook, but I’ll be right back.”
You nodded and he took off.
Tiffany caught your eye and she walked over to your desk, “Wow ______. You are so lucky to sit by him. I wish I was the last one to arrive to class and sat in that chair. You have the best seat in the room,” she winked.
Tiffany made small talk with you about the lesson and stopped when Kevin came back from the book room. She left, handing over the conversation to Kevin.
Kevin smiled at you again with that angelic smile that made your heart flutter, “So where were we?”
