Diary of a Complicated Loner (3)
She’s a pretty girl. Seems like a mature freshman, not dumb and alone. Perfect.
I ask her if I can sit down and she says I can. I start eating my lunch and don’t talk. I set my watch for five minutes. If no one comes in five then I make my move.
No one does.
Me: Do you know anyone in this lunch block?
Girl: I just know my friend Jessica
Me: Well now you know two people. I’m Chase.
She smiles. A good sign.
Girl: I’m Michelle
We both scoot closer to each other. She was on the opposite side farther than me. The connection of a new friend is in place. My first pick up in high school.
We begin talking and then her friend comes over. I immediately wish she wasn’t in my lunch block.
Michelle is GREAT friends with this girl. She introduces me, but soon her interest wanders back to her friend. We share a look like, we’ll talk later.
I resume eating my lunch and soon the period ends.
By the Way. ~ Important
I did a better job than I thought.
I had befriended a Junior.
A girl at that.
