New Message

This is a short story that I wrote. It was inspired by the movie You've got Mail, except instead of mail it is facebook messages.

Eagerly Anne awaited the end of class. She glanced at the clock at least 10 times in the last 5 minutes. She could not wait to get back to her room and her computer. As soon as the professor released them she bolted from the class and practically ran across campus. Briefly returning the greeting of her roommate, she waited impatiently as it signed her in. Yay! She exclaimed as it showed that it had a new message. She opened it up and smiled as she read. Her friend, Joy, told her that she had a special smile for when Gabriel was mentioned. All anybody had to do to make her happy was show her a picture of Gabe. Sometimes it worked when they just said his name. After reading the message, she opened up a new screen and typed a message back. While she waited for him to message her back she went through and poked her friends. Between the messages that flew back and forth for the next two hours she started on her homework. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. She glanced at the clock and realized that it was Joy coming to get her for supper. As they walked to supper they talked of many things, but when they came near the dining commons she started looking around, wondering if he was there yet. They got trays and went through the line, but she still didn’t see him. They came out and looked around for seats, and there he was! Her face lit up with what Joy called her "Gabe smile"€? The three of them talked of many things throughout the course of the meal. After supper they left Joy at the dorms and went to their special place. As they swung together on the swings they continued laughing and talking together as they had since they first met.
