there I was, feeling kinda confused about
this piece of non-information that I got
from JoAnn and I'm wondering what happened
to this totally great relationship I had
with Becca. I must have been completely
wrapped up in trying to figure things out
because all of a sudden Wendie was sitting
next to me and asking me how I was doing.
I didn't' even hear her walk up to me or
anything! It's weird when you can get that
wrapped up in your thoughts that
everything else in the universe just
disappears and it's just you, inside your
Wendie has always been really friendly to
me even though she's totally popular and
it makes no sense that she would want to
have anything to do with someone like me.
I mean, I'm not bad looking or anything,
but I certainly don't hang with the
popular people, and I always thought, for
those kinds of people, who you are friends
with is more important than who you are!
there's Wendie, sitting kinda close to me.
I could smell this perfume or something
that she had on. Or maybe it was just some
kinda a wonderful shampoo that she washes
her hair with. Whatever it was, just
inhaling it made me remember how it felt
to hold her like I did at the dance. I
stopped thinking about Becca and that
cryptic thing that JoAnn said about
London, and I started talking to Wendie. I
guess we were flirting, or something. I'm
never really certain what that word means.
Does it mean something as obvious as "I
like you and I want you to know it." Or
does it mean "You seem interesting but I'm
not sure how I feel about you?" Or does it
just mean, "I'm a guy and you're a girl
and I notice that you're noticing me."
Whatever it means, I think we were doing
brushed her arm against my leg an she was
laughing at everything I said. I have to
admit, I was trying to make her laugh, so
I was being especially clever. I like the
sound of her laugh. It's not forced or
anything, just sweet and light and...
well, full of happiness. And her eyes are
this amazing bluish green and since we
were sitting so close and it was sunny
out, I could see that there were actually
little flicks of gold in her eyes too. I'm
not kidding. Her eyes were bluish-green
with flicks of gold. Totally
she asked me if I wanted to go out with
her, like to a movie or something. And
when she said that all of the cool stuff I
was noticing about her, her laugh, her
eyes, all of it, just popped out of my
head and I heard myself saying. "Thanks,
that's really nice of you to ask and
everything. But Becca and I are kinda
looked a little surprised to hear that and
then she told me something that left me
even more confused than the stuff JoAnn
said. Wendie said, "I thought you guys
broke up. Because I heard that Becca is
madly in love with this older guy she met
on the Internet. He's from
Did she say London? That's twice!
Something's definitely going down here,
Chazter, and it's way past time you found
out exactly what it was.
