Gold Rush Excerpt
“Hey, Liza.”
I looked up directly into the smiling face of Braden. He was holding the raffle bucket, and a Sox player stood beside him. I was so unprepared to see him that I couldn’t even get a “hello” to come out of my mouth.
“Would you like to buy a raffle ticket?” he asked.
I felt weird having him talk down to me while I sat, so I sprang to my feet. “Hi. Umm… yeah, I’ll take a couple.”
“Cool. How many?”
I bent to get my wallet and pulled out a five dollar bill. “As many as this will get me?”
The player tore a strip of tickets from the big roll and gave them to Braden before moving on to solicit Em and Dad, who were watching Braden and me with rapt attention. Braden set the bucket down and slowly separated my part of the tickets. Now that there wasn’t a counter between us, I could see his full physique better. The top of my head only reached his chin, so he had to be more than half a foot taller than me. He had a slender build, but he wasn’t scrawny. The short sleeves of his polo showed nicely-defined biceps.
“I remember you,” Quinn said.
Braden laughed. “I remember you, too.”
Quinn might also remember Holly and me discussing Braden’s date potential. I quickly stepped between them so Quinn couldn’t see him.
“I thought you worked concessions,” I said.
“I’m an intern, so I go wherever they tell me. I like doing the raffle better because I get to see more people.”
His eyes held steady on mine in the I’m-only-looking-at-you way they’d done at the concession stand. How was I supposed to come up with witty conversation when my heart was pitter-pattering so loudly I couldn’t even think?
“Were you going to visit me at the concession stand? I’m still waiting for my autograph.” He cocked his head with a sly grin.
“Oh… yeah. I’m sorry. I wasn’t sure if you were really serious.”
“I definitely was. I’ve never met anyone as talented as you. I watched a video of you at the world championships, and you were incredible.”
“You Googled me?”
“What kind of twenty-first century guy would I be if I didn’t?”
I had to break away from his gaze because I felt redness taking over my face. If only I could be incredible and confident right now.
