Day 5: Initiation By Sylvia Plath (continued)
“Katherine…John” I heard my name but refused to believe the name that had come next.
Was I really so lucky?
“Robin did you hear that!” I whispered excitedly.
“Yeah, that’s great.” he mumbled getting up to find his partner.
“Hey,” John said sitting down.
“Hi,” I shyly replied.
“Hey is that something by Sylvia Plath?” he asked pointing to my stack of books.
“Oh..um yeah, you’ve read her?” I said suprised.
“Is it really that hard to believe that I’ve read a book?” he laughed, smiling at me.
“No, no it’s not that-”
“Relax I know what you mean, she’s wrote one of my favorite books.”
“The Bell Jar?” I asked.
“That would be it.”
The bell rang.
“Can I have your number?” He asked
I must have looked surprised.
“You know, so we can work on this?”
“Oh right, of course.” Was I really so dumb as to think he wanted it for any other reason?
“So I’ll see you soon, oh and in a world full of sparrows, stay a Heather bird Kat,” He winked at me, leaving.
Best history class ever.
