...but she just wasn't falling for it!
"I'd really like to get to know you better," he whispered as he leaned forward. Normally, after he said something like that, he'd be able to lean forward and give the girl a peck - but he guessed Lacy was playing hard to get!
Lacy hedged. Jesse was so dreamy, but he was also a senior and she was just a freshman. She didn't have to be a genius to know that these things didn't normally work out.
"Maybe you can call me from college?" she suggested.
Jesse was stumped. He'd pulled out all his A-game, but he still couldn't get this girl to kiss him. Maybe she swung the other way. Shrugging, Jesse gave up. "Sure whatever. I'll call you sometime. I gotta go pack now."
Maybe one day.... he thought. But not now. Now there were too many girls to smooth talk!
Madison shooed Jackie away with a glare and then turned her back. "Yeah, sorry about that, Michael. Jackie's bugging me."
"FINE!" Jackie fumed as she stomped out of the room. She didn't need to talk on the phone anyway!
Jackie ignored her and kept strumming on the strings.
Madison raised her voice. "Did you hear me?! You suck at the guitar!"
Jackie stuck her tongue out. "Go away Madison. I'm jamming."
Madison stomped her foot. "You're going to mess it up. Leave it alone."
Jackie smiled as she handed Madison the phone. "Sure! Catch you later!" Grinning, she ran to grab the phone. Worked like a charm!
"Shoo!" Jackie said as she waved her hands. "Go on, doggie!"
Smokey had rolled over on his back for a belly rub. Then, hearing Jackie tell him shoo, he'd stopped and glanced up. Jackie could've sworn that was disappointment in his eyes.
