Lauren Henderson

“You know what ‘vespa’ means?”
I shake my head, my mouth suddenly dry, because he’s taken a step toward me, and his legs are so long that one step means he’s already standing in front of me, close enough to touch.
“It means ‘wasp,’” he says softly. “Because it makes a sound like a wasp. How do you say that?”
“Buzzing,” I manage. “It buzzes.”
“Buzzes,” Luca says, and his accent makes the word sound so funny that I can’t help laughing.
“You laugh at me?” he asks, and though he’s put on a serious voice, as if he’s annoyed, somehow I know he isn’t. “Girls never laugh at me. You are the only one.”
“Well, maybe they should,” I say without thinking.
“No,” he says firmly. “Only you can laugh at me.”
