I HAD A MOMENT OUT OF A HALLMARK MOVIE TODAY! This seriously has to make you smile, because it was so sweet!

I mean, I still can't get over how sweet this was!

Chapter 1

So the scenes in movies you think are too sappy to actually happen? Yeah, they apparently aren't entirely fictional...

So here's a little bit of scene setting before we get to the "OMG THIS IS SO SWEET AND CUTE AND AWW!!!" I'm in the creative writing program at my school, and I mostly write script and fiction, but I also dabble in poetry. There's a coffee shop down the street from my school and on every 4th Friday of the month there's a writers' read-aloud where writers of all ages are encouraged to read their poems, stories, and nonfiction pieces. At first, I was one of the few Colgan High students reading there, but lately more and more have been going. I think it's only because the poetry readings count as "arts credit". What that means is basically this: when you're in the arts program like I am, you need to attend a certain number of art-related activities, and since this counts, a lot of people only go for the credit -_-

Anyways, this was the first time Jordan could come with me, and I'm glad he came because he had a great time! Normally I just drive myself, but it was really great to have the company. As soon as we walked in though, my eyes immediately went to the back corner, where the hottest guy I've ever seen in my life was sitting by himself. He had hipster-y glasses and was writing in a journal. I hadn't seen him at the poetry reading before so I thought he was a first time reader. The outgoing side of me really wanted to go strike up a conversation, even though he looked about 5 years older than me. The Royal Shyness in me was scared too talk to him. After what felt like an eternity of staring at him and him probably thinking I was a freak for staring, I got an idea!

So, I made a paper airplane, scribbled "Read Me!" On both wings, and wrote "I'm Andie, I'm 17 and I've been reading at spilled ink since February. If it's your first time reading, good luck! It's nerve wracking, but you've got me cheering you on! If you're not reading, sorry I bothered you! Sincerely, the girl with the curly red hair and the green and white striped shirt." On the inside. I sent it zooming over to him. He started reading it almost instantly. I could tell some of my handwriting was a little hard for him to read, but everyone says my handwriting isn't especially neat haha. He gave me a thumbs up and a smile a few minutes later.

Unfortunately, he left before I got to read. But, on his way out, he gave me a little note that said "Thank you!" on the outside! So naturally, I read it! It said: "I'm not reading tonight, but I want to thank you so much for your kindness! I was having a kind of rough day and this brightened it immensely. Never stop being so kind. You never know who you might save or help. You're one in a million Andie! Thank you again and good luck if you're reading! Kindness will always be repaid and I'll do my best to pass it on.
-Scott, aspiring writer and happier, appreciating person now!
You're fantastic!"

I didn't get his number or email or anything like that ): But I really hope we get to see each other again! Maybe at next month's writer's group or another day we'll cross paths. He seemed like someone I could really become friends with! I'm a big believer in, "If someone is meant to be in your life, they'll always find a way into it." So here's to hoping we meet again!
