Crushing

I had lunch with Connor the other day. It's nice knowing a couple people here. Connor's really cute. I wonder if it's weird because he's Angel's son. I mean, it's not like he's related to me or anything. And when Buffy was with Angel, Connor wasn't even born yet, so it's not like Buffy was his step-mom or anything.

I'm totally overthinking this anyway. I mean, it's not like we're dating or anything. It was just lunch. Lunch with a really cute, nice guy. Maybe I'll try to "accidentally" run into him again. Oh my God, now I'm a total stalker. But if anyone's stalk-worthy, it's Connor.

I'm walking through campus and who do I see walking towards her dorm and obviously off in her own world, but Dawn. She's so cute. I wonder what's got her so distracted.

I walk up to her, stride for stride and say in her ear, "Earth to Dawn. Hello, cutie."

At first, I think I'm imagining his voice, but then I feel his breath on my ear. And, oh my God, he called me cutie!

"Hey, Connor!" I respond, maybe a bit too excitedly. "I was just thinking about uh..." I quickly look around and spot a kid holding a calculator. "Math!" I blurt out. "Math...homework, you know." Oh my God, I am such a spaz!

She's so cute when she's flustered. "Math, yeah, math can be very hard. I could help you with your homework, if you want."

I'm really not that great at math, but I'd help her with anything she'd ask me to. Crushing much, Connor? She's cute, though, really cute. And I don't care that she's Buffy's little sister. Buffy is Dad's thing, not mine.

"Or, we could get a bite to eat? Or just coffee if you're not hungry? Or I could walk you to class if that's where you're going?"

I smiled shyly and let my gaze drift downward again. He was totally asking me out! If I had been alone, I would've been jumping up and down, squealing with excitement, but I had to contain myself here.

"Yeah, that would be fun," I answered. "The coffee or food or whatever." I feel like I'm watching my IQ plummet as I stand here talking to him. What the hell is wrong with me?

"I don't know, what do you feel like doing?"



"We could go to the cafe, maybe get a table outside. It's a nice day out." I said, still smiling. "And that way, we can get coffee or something to eat or both. My treat."

Part of me wanted to reach out and take her hand, but then the unsure part of me didn't know if she would like that or not. After all, it's not like we're dating just yet. I hate being this nervous around a girl, but I know Dawn is worth it.

"So...shall we go then? Your brain definitely needs a caffeine break from Math right now. Heck, all homework. And what better way to take a break than with a nice guy like me?"

*Nice and hot* I think as I smile and nod.

"That all sounds great, Connor. I definitely need a break from math. I don't know why they make us take the stuff," I complained. "I am definitely not going to be a mathmatician."

As we headed towards the cafe, I kept thinking of things to say, but they all somehow led back to Buffy, and I was afraid that would be a weird topic. So eventually, I said the lamest thing ever. "Nice day today, don't you think?"

"It's a beautiful day." I said as I looked at her. I liked how the sun brought out highlights in her hair. I know I like a girl a lot when I notice things like that.

As we got the cafe, I pulled a seat out for Dawn and pushed it in for when she sat down. Then I sat across from her.

I was trying to think of what to say. "Uh, so...you like it here so far?" I hope that's not what we talked about last time, that would be embarrassing.
"Thank you," I said softly as he pulled the chair out for me. He was so nice. Almost too good to be true. At least I knew he wasn't a vampire or anything.

"So far it's ok here," I answered. "I don't know, I feel disconnected from everyone. I thought if we were all here together, I'd see people a lot more, you know? But I guess that's kind of a good thing too. What about you?" I asked, trying to remember to make eye contact with him. I wish I wasn't so bad at this dating thing.
