Petra glanced down at her phone, the violent buzz jerking her away from her sleepy trance. It was from Nick Sterling. She barely remembered putting the boy’s contact in her phone at some party where she was too drunk to have any full memories. He had sent her a text, the first one in quite a few months actually. At first she was planning on ignoring it, but upon opening the app, Petra was greeted by a lovely paragraph by what seemed to be an under-the-influence Nick.
Petra giggled as she scrolled through. She glanced up to see no one across from her, not exactly sure what she was expecting. Seniors aren’t usually in her class. She paused for a moment before playfully responding to Nick.
To: Nick Sterling
From: Petra Rosenfeld
“I’m sorry…what? Wow, Nick, I really thought we had something going there for a little bit. Like those five seconds of eye contact we made at your party? That was basically the best moment of my life. I’m happy we’re texting this so you don’t have to see all of my mascara running down my face! This is so tragic. I’m genuinely in shock. Well, if you don’t care, neither do I! I hope you’re happy with whoever you moved on to. Obviously I’m not good enough. I guess I’ll just have to move in on your sister instead. She’s a lot hotter than you, and probably will make me happier than you ever will!”
And…sent. Petra smiled to herself as she closed her messages. Despite it being a joke, at least part of it was true. Alex was hotter than Nick. But, basically everyone knew that, so it wasn’t much of a surprise. Despite her quick response, Petra was still wondering why she had just gotten the text out of nowhere. She didn’t even know that the Sterling’s knew who she was, at least by name. But, whatever. The text made her smile, and god knows that she needs to do that more often.
