What Would You Do If.....
“What would you do if a mole tried to eat you alive?”
“Probably kill it myself. What would you do if your mom told you she was really a man?”
“Ew. Gross. Where do you come up with these things?”
“Just answer the question.”
“Hmmm…. Try and figure out who my real mom is and tell my dad. What would you do if….” Tanner grows silent. I look around and listen as hard as I can. Nothing. So why did he stop talking?
“Do you want me to come up with one?”
“No, I got it.” He stops talking again. I’m waiting for Mike to appear with the squirt gun and attack us both, but he doesn’t. No one appears which is surprising because Tanner and I have been here for an hour.
“Look, Tanner, are you sure that-”
“What would you do if I kissed you right now?”
“Wha- what?” I’m whispering.
“No, it’s fine…. umm….. I guess you’ll have to find out.” Tanner gets up, walks over to me, sits back down, and leans in. He holds my hand and touches his lips to mine. Perfect. I forget everything. Squirt.
