He tried to stop wasting time on these stupid daydreams.
Maybe his mind wouldn’t wander if he had someone to study with. But nobody
wanted to study with him. Nobody wanted to spend time with a nerd.
Next day, the girl got off the bus again with Andy, and this
time, instead of going into the convenience store, she began to walk with him.
When they reached the yard with the German shepherd, they both automatically
backed away from the fence. Andy and the girl looked at each other and grinned.
He was encouraged. “I’m Andy Liang. Are you new in the neighborhood?”
“We moved here last week,” she replied. “My name is Leona
Hu. But Leona is a silly name, and my friends call me Lee.”
She was inviting him to call her Lee and including him among
her friends! Andy could hardly believe his luck. An attractive girl was
actually ready to be friends. He was grateful to the German shepherd.
The girl had big almond-shaped eyes. Andy had overheard
Americans saying that Chinese had slanty eyes, although his own eyes did not
slant. Lee’s eyes, on the other hand, definitely slanted upward at the corners.
Her hair had a slightly reddish tint, instead of being
blue-black like his own. She wasn’t exactly beautiful, but with her hair and
her slanting eyes, she looked exotic and fascinating.
Best of Luck
