"Hey, Kati?" Kelly asked, looking though rows and rows of library books and isles.
"Science Fiction area!" Kelly heard his friend call from somewhere to the back of the room.
Kelly shook his head. Of course she would be there. Why did he have to ask?
Kelly looked down the first few rows of the Sci-fi area, but didn't see her.
"Ss," Kelly looked at the letters at the top of the isles, looking for "S", when he realized he was at the XYZ area.
Quickly going the opposite direction, he walked quickly up the alphabet until he found 'S'.
Looking down that row, he saw a fifteen year old girl with bright blond, sun-streaked hair. When she looked up, she smiled her perfect smile at him, her green eyes sparkling with joy.
"What have you found?" Kelly asked, walking up to her, and looking at the book in her hands.
"Star Trek." she stated, turning the page.
"You know, you should really try the Star Wars series." Kelly tried reasoning.
"I'll get to that series!" Kati complained. As far as Kelly knew, his best friend had read every book in her last library. So when she moved here, about two years ago, she did as she had been doing before, reading every book in the library.
Kelly brushed his messy, dirty-blond hair from his eyes, and picked up a book.
"You can start today, then!" He said, handing her "The Phantom Menace".
"Kells, I'm in the middle of Star Trek! Let me finish this series!" Kati said, moving the book off her other book, and grabbing a bundle more. "If you don't mind, I need to check these books out." Kati said, walking past him, brushing his shoulder accidentally. Kelly shook his head and walked after her.
"OK, But this one comes with you." Kelly looked at her, grinning. "Trust me."
"Must I?" Kati sighed, acting as if it probably would kill her if she did trust him.
"Yes!" Kelly said, stepping closer, placing the book on the pile in her arms, and moving his hands so he was holding her shoulders.
"No, I don't have to!" She said, stepping closer still.
"Yes, you do," Kelly was now inches from her face, and it started doing things to his mind. He was never one to be charmed by her grace so easily, and she could charm people very easily, but he had never been this close to her.
She smiled sweetly, before jerking herself so that the top book, the star wars one, fell off, but the rest stayed in place. In doing so, Kelly ended up letting go of her shoulders.
"Hey!" Kelly said, picking up the book from the floor. But when he turned around to grin at Kati, she had already disappeared.
Kelly put the book back on the shelf, and jogged after her. He knew she would get to the series sooner or later.
That's what he liked about her.
