A bump on the shoulder on enrollment day.

A glance shared in the midst of strangers.

A scowl from her, a terrified look from him.

She stepped closer and his intended apology rose to a squeak.

“Watch it, pipsqueak!”

He flinched and fell over backwards.

The briefest look of worry passed by her eyes before she held out a hand to him and started giggling.

“Get up. I was just kidding!”

She pulled him up as soon as he took her hand.

“I’m Sam.”

“S-Sam, t-too.”

It did not take her a minute to decide she’d call him Glasses instead.
