"Hi, my name is Saucy"
Adrian stared at the letters on the IM screen. They were pink. Bright pink. Flirty pink.
Without really thinking what he was doing. he typed:
"Hiya, my name is Adrian."
The next message came with a cheesy grin smiley face. "Like as in 'Mole' LOL bless ur heart."
For a moment, Adrain drew a blank. LOL? What was she on about? Assuming she WAS a she.
Then he remembered it stood for 'Laugh Out Loud'/
He couldn't believe it; this girl thought he was funny. No-one at school thought he was funny. To then he was just a smeghead. Only, they didn't say 'smeg'.
He wanted to put: "No as in Hollins cos thats my name." But, he didn't want to ruin it.
"I didn't really mean it," more pink letters said. "Bout my name bein saucy. I was messin. Its not that really. "
He messaged back, surpised, twisting the hem of his 'blame my parents' T-shirt between his fingers.. "What is it then?"
"Daisy. Really borin i no."
Daisy. Daisy. His mind saw sun-brown skin, blonde hair a soft smile. 'Daisy, Daisy=, give me your answer, do'
"I think its lovely"
"Aw! thanx. I think ur luvly."
'I'm half crazy, all for the love of you.' He felt himself blush and was glad Daizy couldn't see.
Another bright pink message.
"Got 2 go. Maths homework. Grrr!"
Adrian's lips stretched in to a grin. "Should i help? Im good at maths."
"Bless u 4 askin. Bt not 2day. Sum otha time mayb. BCNU. LOL"
This time, he was pretty sure the LOL meant 'Lots of Love'.
