had a dentist appointment at 11:30 this
morning and I decided it didn't make any
sense to go back to school just for lunch
and a couple of periods. I mean, things
with me and Becca are so weird these days
that I'd almost rather not have to see her
since she obviously isn't into talking to
me about anything real. So after the
dentist, I took a bus to the mall.
the arcade I ran into Miguel. I heard he
got into a fight with someone and that
even though it wasn't Miguel's fault, the
principal didn't see it that way and
suspended him. I could tell that Miguel
was hoping that I wouldn't bring it up,
you know how sometimes you can kinda feel
that a person is uncomfortable. That's how
Miguel seemed to me, so I didn't mention
it. I mean, it's not really my business.
So instead we played Area 51, made a
pretty decent team too. It was cool.
we went back to my house and got some
food. No one was home, no one is during
the day and I was just as glad. My brother
is... well, strange and my mom, she thinks
I have no friends (just 'cause I don't
talk about them) so if she was home I just
imagine she'd get into this super sweet
mode where she's all interested in the
person and asking them all kinds of
embarrassing personal questions like "And
are planning to go to college? What do you
think you might study? Charlie has always
been interested in science." Augggh! She's
the only one who calls me Charlie and I
dunno... I'd just rather not subject
anyone to her nosiness if I can help
luckily she wasn't there and we were just
eating and hanging out, then all of a
sudden Miguel said he had to go home. I
felt like heading for the skate park, so I
was going walk with him, but he said that
he had to get home in a hurry 'cause his
little brother was sick or something. It
didn't make much sense to me. In fact, if
I didn't know Miguel, I'd say he was lying
for some reason or other.
he left and I cleaned up the kitchen stuff
(don't laugh, my mom gets really pissed if
I leave stuff out. It's not a pretty
sight!). Then I went to the skate park, or
rather, I started to go in that direction,
but I ran into JoAnn. I thought, "Perfect!
She's Becca friend. Maybe she can tell me
what the hell is going on."
I said hi and asked her why Becca was like
practically not talking to me. And JoAnn
looked uncomfortable at the question. Like
she knew something but didn't exactly want
to be the one to say it. Instead she said,
"If I were you I'd ask Becca if she has
any plans to go to London."
Huh? Hello? What the hell is that supposed
asked her if she could explain what she
meant, but she just said, "Ask her." And
she took off.
JoAnn, for nothing!
