The next day when Lainey got to school Sam had been waiting at the gate for whatever reason.
We're in English together right before.
Hey Lainey, do u want to hang out at lunch today? We don’t talk much and I thought it’d be nice
When Lainey saw Sam waiting for her at the end of class so they could go sit together she felt that feeling again, the butterflies.
Ahh these goddamn butterflies.
The whole entire 50 minutes they sat together they talked and laughed like they’d been best friends for years, it was like they had a connection Lainey thought to herself. She’d never felt this way around a girl before, in fact around anyone.
Lainey got home and checked her phone.
Hey Hun, Do you want to call soon? I need to talk to you… give me a ring xx.
It took her a few minutes to work up the courage to finally call Sam, all Lainey could think about was what the heck she was going to say.
Hey Lainey, I wanted to have a serious conversation about…us. I feel as tho we have a connection and honestly I think I’m starting to like you, is there any chance you feel the same..?
I wish that had been my case...anyways Lainey, it was a nice chat but I better get some sleep, talk to you tomorrow.
Lainey, just be prepared for the worst and hopefully you’ll have prepared for nothing.
There was a pause.
Sam giggled in delight.
Sam mumbled her next sentence.
Sam…I think I feel it too...I know I feel it too.
Sam, I just don’t know what to tell my parents…you know…that I like a girl, this has never happened before.
