Sunday Snippet- Superhero Lies-March 22nd

“Wow, piano. I guess you must be pretty good to be playing a recital.”
Luke's voice had turned, I don’t know, a little amazed. I guess it might seem amazing to think that plain Andrea Jamison actually had a talent—a talent my parents had pressured me into since the age of six.
I shrugged my shoulders and lifted my head. “I guess.”
“I mean, that’s really cool. Could I hear you play sometime?”
Swiftly, I shifted my view back to the inside of my locker. He just looked too cute leaning there like a model escaped from a photo shoot. And he wanted to hear me play? At my piano recital? This was a crazy world!
Then I zeroed in on the superhero decal inside my locker. If Luke saw that, he’d know me for the big fat liar that I am. Why had I told Luke that I hated superheroes? Of all the lies, that one was just plain stupid.
I slammed the locker shut.
Luke stood up straight, apparently surprised. His face scrunched up like I’d almost taken off one of his eyelashes.
“Sorry,” I tried to apologize while hoping he’d forget about the piano thing.
“So, when can I hear you play?”
This boy could not be distracted. Maybe if I fainted here in the hallway. Of course, he might have to catch me, and then he’d be touching me, and that was way too romantic for this Aubrey Academy girl.

This is too hilarious. I really can't get to follow this girl's though. That super awesome first to have her crush her, then that he likes the piano. Then he might not even be unhappy about the sudden super hero stickers.
Girl you deserve the love, take it!!!

I'm really enjoying this. I just hope that he's persistent -- and sincere. I don't want to see her get hurt.

This is a lot of fun. I like the pace of it-- thoughts coming in fast, like they do at that age. Very nice.
