I walked passed the vending machine
Peered into the brightly lit glass. Saw a package of m&ms and rummaged for change in my bag.
Only had a 5 dollar bill
I looked around the science hall and there you were. Drinking from the water fountain. I had seen your face around school before.
I was not shy
"Hey, you friends with Carlos?" I said in an awkwardly high pitched tone.
You turned to me
Your eyebrows raised, "Yeah he is a friend of mine."
"Well listen, friend of Carlos,"
"I really want to buy this package of peanut m&ms but I don't have the correct amount of change. Could I get change for a five?"
You pulled out your wallet to check
You said to me, " I don't have change for five, but here, just take this dollar."
I looked down at your hand holding out a crinkly, faded, one
After handing it to me you walked away.
I turned back to face the vending machine
I inserted the bill and pressed F2. Then out came two fresh packages of peanut m&ms. I stared at the yellow packages and wondered where you'd gone.
I walked out of the science buliding to find you
You were sitting on the bench beside the wall. I walked over to you.
You looked up at me
You looked surprised as i stared at you and held my hand out with a bright yellow bag.
I said, "The machine is broken and gave me two packages, here is yours, thank you for the dollar."
I walked away before you could respond
Now when i think of peanut m&ms, I think of you.
