"I was nominated for a class award," Ryan just suddenly announced.
"Really?" I responded, looking up from my computer. Pride began to swell in my chest. Of course, I was assuming that he was nominated for something like "The Hottest" or "Looks Best in a Dress" or "Prince Charming."
But I should've known.
"I'm nominated for The Quietest," he said, a hint of amusement in his voice, "along with two Asian students who don't speak English. In fact, I've never heard either of them say a single word."
Laughing, we went to the online ballot page.
Get this: Sixty-five percent of the class has already voted--
and Ryan is winning.
P.S. I was always attracted to the quiet ones. They are the most intriguing. No wonder he was the Secret Crush of Highland High School. I bet if UB Dental School had that category, Ryan would win. I would vote for him.
