Mia covered her mouth and giggled at Nathans reaction, which was absolutely what shed been hoping for. Her plan had worked to a tee, because Nathan had very clearly not been expecting it. Any veneer of smoothness he might have had before the date had long gone, but Mia didnt care at all about that. He was definitely on the right side of dorky and easily flustered to be cute.
His hands also didnt burst into flames when he tried to take a fry from the plate again, so Mia figured they were now at that prime point of still being hot and tasty, but not to the point where shed be prone to burn the inside of her mouth. She reached over, meaning to just grab one, but picking up another two that had been caught in the crossfire. Oh well. As stated; it was obvious that all essence of smoothness had gone straight out the window by now.
Plus, it had been literally eons since shed last had fries. There wasnt room for them in her fairly strict diet, and whenever she did allow herself a treat of some sort, she never instinctively decided to go for fries as her cheat of choice. You always kinda overlooked them until you were actually having them, and then they were a godsend.
Midway between two of the fries, Nathan decided to ask one hell of a question, and she paused mid-chew, trying to digest both fry and query. She made a hmmmmm noise, still with half a fry poking from her mouth, but despite how hard she thought, she couldnt come up with a concrete answer before shed finished off her handful of fries.
Jesus, wow, um, you realise youre asking me to choose my favourite kid, right? Damn.
Mia grinned again to show she wasnt being totally serious, running her fingers through her hair as she tried to think.
Youre right though, BMX is a super competitive and really tough sport. Ive seen plenty of people take their first fall and they just cant handle it. You really gotta be into it to carry on with it.
Mias smile broadened.
Luckily, I am either super into it, or a complete masochist. 50-50, really! Even so, I think if I did have to pick a favourite sport, itd probably be swimming, honestly! It means a lot to me, I just feel so free and happy whenever Im in the water. I could literally stay in there for hours! Plus, if I do end up going to a sports college, then its probably the sport Id be looking to do
Mia gave a little involuntary sigh, unable to catch it before it escaped from her mouth, and her heart jolted a little, as she hoped that Nathan hadnt caught it. It was the if in that statement that had brought up all the uncomfortable thoughts and realisations again, that she might not end up doing what she loved for a living, that she might have pursued this path for all of her childhood and teenager-dom, only to have to give it all up very soon.
In short, not exactly first date discussion material.
