"I'm a total geek," she said

“I’m a total geek,” she said.His mind flew back. 6 years old, and his spring loaded racing car went farther than it was ever meant to. 10 years, he built his first alarm clock. 13 years, his bicycle had a digital speed readout.Yet, here he was, an ordinary looking boy wearing Levi’s; trying to be cool, and she had said, “I’m a total geek.”His eyes fell on the Mills and Boons novel tucked under her arm.
