From October 2006
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.
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.
