...one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love....I love...I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. -Mr. Darcy


She fought to keep her voice from wavering as she introduced herself. She discreetly wiped her clammy palm on her jeans, and mentally cringed as he looked a bit surprised at the moistness of her hand as he gripped it with his own.

“I…uh…it’s really nice to…meet you.” She forced the words out of her mouth, hating how pathetic and unnatural they sounded.

She smiled painfully as he spoke, and all she heard was a jumbled warbling noise. Just be natural, she told herself. Say whatever jumps into your head.

“I hate talking. I really don’t want to be here. Your shirt is ugly.” The words popped out of her mouth in rapid-fire style before she could stop them.

His face contorted into a mask of cruel laughter. The sound filled her head, echoing and growing louder until it felt like she would burst. Her face flamed as she stuttered hopelessly. Everything slowed and suddenly, she was bent over, staring at his puke-covered shoes.

Oops.

Brilliant! You must have a pretty good english or creative writing teacher. I did feel that this story kind of left me hanging and rushed. Either way, keep up the writing.

HAHA! Awesome stuff ! Loved it, absolutely. I didn't at first, but I read through twice again and I think that that is the whole effect - having to read it more than once to let it impact. I wish I could write like this! Please, if you have time, check out some of my work :) Thanks, and great stuff!

This was so short but really, really interesting!  I went back and read it several times, picking up little things along the way.  I like how ambiguous it is, because we don't really know who she was talking to.  It could've been her crush, or the president of the U.S, for that matter!  Great job!
