An Unexpected Response

Emily stares at me for moment as if sizing me up. Then she simply says flirtaciously:

“Ok, I’ll see you later.”

I smile at her and then turn to walk away. Out of the corner of my eye I can see her peering at me through the door. A figure suddenly appears beside me.

“We did a good job didn’t we?” Pride says

“Pssht. You didn’t even see the whole thing.” I mumbled

We both rounded a corner and soon came up on my classroom. Pride gave out a hearty laugh. I couldn’t help but smile. I didn’t get to see pride often. I’m not a very prideful person.

“Well I must be going now. Desire wants to make an appearance.” Pride grumbled “I barely ever get to see you.”

I was about to say something in my/his defense but he was already gone. I walked into the classroom and sat down.

“Well today turned out a lot different then I thought.”

I leaned back in my chair and my thoughts drifted towards Emily.

And that’s when Desire decided to show up.
