As I got closer to Gert’s desk, I was hoping she would notice me and look up. But she didn’t even peek her head out of the book she was reading.
“Hey” I whispered when I got near her.
”what do you want Chase?” She whispered back harshly.
“Just trying to say hi,” I said confused as to why she was mad at me again.
“Oh really, that why you had to whisper it huh” she whispered.
“Hey Chase, what are you doing over there?” Somebody yelled.
I looked at Gert and feel like I should say something, anything to explain to her why I was whispering. But she probably wouldn’t believe me, so I decided to just go to my desk.
“Nothing, so what sup?” I yelled back and walk towards my desk.
Shortly afterward the teacher came and class breezed by pretty quickly. I didn’t even realize it was over until I felt a hand on my shoulder and looked up to see one of my classmates.
“Yo, the class is over,” he said.
“Thanks, man,” I said before grabbing my bag and heading out. I rush to my next class but not before looking into the crowd for purple hair. I didn’t see any and for some reason that made me sad.
“Hey Chase,” Eifel says coming out her class and wrapping her arm around mine.
“Hey,” I said removing her arms.
“Why are you acting like this Chase?” She asked.
“What are you talking about Eifel, I have a class to get too,” I said.
“Ok, ok I just wanted to remind you that the school dance is coming up. “
“Umm ok,” I said, I didn’t care for school dances.
“We should totally go together “ she continued.
”I don’t even know if I’m going yet, so I’ll talk to you later Eifel,” I said ending that conversation.
