The match had just finished. We had won. I was really excited. Nothing could have prepared me for what was coming. I followed my friends to the park where we knew some merry-go-rounds had been set up for children to raise money for the new children hospital. My little cousin was there and I couldn’t wait to see her.
There was a lake in the park, and a tree with its branches hovering over the water. My favourite spot. I left my friends, seeking some alone-time. I saw a crowd pressed together on the lake shore. Wondering what the fuss was all about, I approached a couple and asked, “Excuse me, what’s going on?”
They turned to me with a big smile on their face. “Don’t you know? They’re filming a scene of David Tennant’s new show. Oh look, he’s right there! David! David!”
My jaw dropped. The crowd started screaming. This could not be real. David. My David. I pushed my way to the front and almost fell face down on the grass.
"Woah, careful there." strong arms pulled me up and pushed me to the front of another line. I was extremely confused. I was pushed into a tent with 3 unknown girls.
"Wait, where am I, what’s going on?"
A girl turned to me and said, “oh, so there’s 4 of us now? We have to film the underwater scene!”
I had no time to register, everything was happening so fast. I ran out of the tent, and straight into someone. “I’m sorry!” I screamed.
"Hey, no, it’s my fault, I’m so sorry!" I picked myself up and looked around, my head slightly spinning. A man approached me. "Are you ok?"
I looked twice and literally stopped breathing.
David fuckin’ Tennant.

The way he was smiling, looking down at his phone, made my insides feel heavy as a mountain. A text from her, surely. He looked up at me for a second and I forced myself to smile back at him. The library was empty except the two of us.
"Hey, do you mind if I, um… l leave for an hour or so? She just asked me out for a coffee…"
My heart sank. “Now?” I whispered. “But, Joey…”
