Just a bit of warning, this is a kind of long story.
About a week ago I went to sign up for classes for college (I’ll be a freshmen next year). We had an orientation type deal over two days. We were in groups while we were there and, of course, there was a girl in my group who I thought was cute. While we were there, trying to be a gentleman, I took her jacket because she was just carrying it around and I had a backpack I could put it in. Well, we kept forgetting to get it out of my backpack to get it back to her, and at the end of orientation I still had it. We had broken apart to go our separate ways at this point, so I asked out councilor for her number so I could get the jacket to her (at this point that was truly my only concern). He gave it to me and I texted her, but she didn’t see it. It ended up not mattering because I ran into her shortly after that. I told her about me getting her number, so she knows I have it.
I had a very hard time reading this girl. She seems nice and interesting, but she seemed like she was kind of intimidated the whole time we were there. She told me that she doesn’t like meeting new people very much. However, she then told me that she was glad she met me because she would probably be walking around in our group by herself if she hadn’t.
Later on we were talking about her not liking to meet new people, and I told her it would probably be easier for her because she would have guys coming up to talk to her (obviously implying they would be flirting with her). She responded saying, “Well then I’ll just be like this is my friend X (referring to me).”
I guess my question (finally) is, do you think it would be wrong for me to text her just to chat with her? It’s not like she gave me her number, so I don’t know what to do exactly. I’d like to chat with her just to try to get to know her better and stuff, but I don’t know how to go about it. What do y’all think?

You're right...it *is* a long story... but I wrote a few doozies when I first came on to GAG, haha.
I would say don't spoil the good live vibe you have going by texting each other. I firmly believe that texting is the equivalent of that stomach cramp you get when gym is the class right after lunch. You already enjoy her company, and she seems to enjoy yours. Just be around her when you have the chance. CALL instead of texting since you already have a good verbal rapport.
Now just note that there's always a chance that the "friend" comment she tossed at you means that she is planning to keep you there as her sturdy wing man rather than her date/BF. There's a 50/50 chance of that, so if you like her as more than a friend, make your intentions clear as you move along in the relationship.0
