Miguel Likes Katie

Miguel Likes Katie

A Chapter by Kristy Young
"

Miguel Martinez has a crush on Katie Sullivan.

"
On a rainy Monday morning, 15-year-old Miguel Martinez was sitting in English class, bored.  He was struggling to pay attention to Mrs. Waters's lesson on To Kill a Mockingbird, which was next to impossible because he had zero interest in the assignment.
Miguel leaned over to his best friend Jonathan Simms, who was sitting at a desk beside him.
"Psst...Jon," Miguel whispered to Jonathan.
"Yeah?" Jonathan asked Miguel.
"You wanna come over to my place on Saturday?"
"Sounds great!" Jonathan said to Miguel, loud enough for the rest of the class to hear.
"Sssh!" Miguel whispered to Jonathan, trying not to bring attention to them.
But shushing Jonathan didn't work.  Mrs. Waters stopped talking and approached Miguel and Jonathan at their desks.
"Gentlemen, is there anything you'd like to share with us?" Mrs. Waters asked Jonathan and Miguel, with a stern look on her face.
"No, ma'am." Miguel said quickly.
"Good," Mrs. Waters said to Miguel, "Now, Miguel I want you to switch seats with Alexis."
"Awww," Miguel complained, "But you didn't even give me a warning."  Mrs. Waters usually gave her students warnings before she punished them.
"Go switch seats with Alexis." Mrs. Waters firmly told Miguel.
"Fine." Miguel said in a low-pitched voice.  He then switched seats with a girl named Alexis Kim, in the front of the classroom.
This actually worked out better for Miguel because he got to sit across from Katie Sullivan, a girl he had a crush on.
Miguel thought Katie was very beautiful and sweet.  Her complexion was porcelain white with a hint of pink.  Her hair was long and golden blonde.  Her eyes were as blue as the sky on a clear, cloud-free day.  Katie was also very tall and curvy for her age.  She was 15 as well, but looked much older.
Miguel couldn't help but look at Katie every once in a while.  He just had to make sure Mrs. Waters wasn't looking, or he'd have to switch seats again.
Soon the bell for second period rang, and everyone went to their next classes.

Hey nice story Kristy! I love your start, it is written very nicely. I would like to say however, its probably just me, but personally I think you should only say who's talking once per person during a conversation. Repeated names over and over have always been annoying to me, but others may think it makes it easier to read. In all though this chapter is very well written.
