Thirty Days of Genius – Day Eight

‘Does life get any better than this?’ she wondered idly.  It was a beautiful spring day.  The sun was shining and a slight breeze was blowing, keeping the temperature nice and mild.  She and her friends were currently lounging in the gazebo in her back yard, sated after their impromptu picnic.

Her eyes drifted around the group, settling briefly on each established couple and lingering speculatively on the ones she could see forming before her eyes.  It was spring after all.  Her eyes landed on Akio and dropped shyly as she caught him looking at her.

Akio was fairly new to the group because he had just arrived from Japan in January for the spring semester.  He was studying aboard for at least a year and maybe more if he enjoyed it.  He was quite cute, with dark hair in messy spikes.  She wasn’t the only one that thought so and he was always surrounded by girls.

She refused to be part of a group of fangirls, so she never made a move.  However, she couldn’t help but find him attractive, especially now when they were lounging around, relaxed.  She gasped as a hand moved into her vision, interrupting her thoughts.  She looked up into the smiling face of Akio.

“Walk with me, Eva?” he asked softly, his eyes smiling.
