"Popcorn!" she announced, hurdling over the back of the couch, microwave bag securing the salty, buttery snack from spillage. She landed next to me.


"If you insist," she sighed and pulled open the top of the bag.

"Star Wars is a classic and you can't be my friend without seeing it. You won't get my jokes."

"Fine. Play." She shoved a handful of popcorn past her plump lips. She sat indian style next to me, her warm knee touching my thigh. The marquee scrolled into the distance.


"What I don't get is, why didn't Luke use his powers to get everything he wanted?"

"Because he was good."

"If I had Jedi powers, I'd use them to get more than my light sabre. Wouldn't you?"

I gazed at her ocean blue eyes. "Oh, I'm sure I'd misuse the power for something." I grinned.

"Like what?" she pressed.

Winning you over "I don't know..."

"I think I'd turn evil so fast. Read minds, make people do stuff!"

Read mine. "Like, only watch movies you like?"

"I like Star Wars, now." She smiled.

I smiled back.

Nice. A cute little interaction between the characters. A couple of notes, in the first paragraph, I think it should read 'landed next to me', and later on, I think you need to capitalise 'Winning', but overall it's a great read. I can just see the protagonist grinning mischievously in that last portion of dialogue.

It's a nice capture of a youth I can virtually remember.
