A blast of heat smacks my face as I walk through the automatic doors. I look at the monitors. If someone gave me a dime
for every time the word “canceled” appears beside a flight, I could buy a private jet.
Stranded holiday travelers sleep on the floor using their suitcases for
pillows. Families eat dinner slumped against garbage cans. Two men scream over
who’s been waiting longer for an outlet to charge their phones. The stale
air smells like French fries and feet. It’s chaos, and though I don’t want to drive again anytime soon, I’m jumpy to get out of here as fast as possible.
Circling the baggage carousels like a shark, I’m bursting with adrenaline after that hell ride. My shirt, damp with
sweat, sticks to my skin. I feel chilled beneath Mom’s coat. I’m wondering how I’ll ever find Nick Lawrence in this sea of people when a guy walks up to
me. At first, I think he’s going to ask me for money or a ride, but then I take a closer look.
Dark hair, dark eyes, empty-looking duffel bag slung over his shoulder. He’s wearing a lightweight hoodie over a t-shirt. The neck is stretched
out and wavy. He looks sloppy, not like a guy who attends a top university, but maybe he’s shot from finals too. His eyes, vaguely familiar, meet mine. He holds
out a thick, clammy hand.
When our palms touch, an electric shock passes between us. He holds my
hand a beat too long and smiles, a weird, goofy grin. I have the
sudden urge to pull away, turn around, leave him standing there. He doesn’t look like the kind of guy James would
befriend, but James always reminds me: Don’t judge a book by its cover.
