“Wha…what are you doing here?!?” I sqeaked.

“Kitty’s lab partner invited her and she invited me.” Andy replied cooly.

“Oh.” I replied. “Look, I’m sorry I ran into you. I was kind of escaping…” I remembered what Andy had said about Blake and how he felt about him. I decided not to tell him who I was running from. It’d just give him a chance to say told you so!

“Escaping from who…?”

“Uh….um, no one. They’re just all dirty dancing in there, and it’s kinda freaky.”

“Mmmhmm…” I could tell he definitely didn’t believe me.

The tension was killing me. I couldn’t stand this apartness, this coldness anymore. I couldn’t stand not being his friend! “Look…Andy? Can we talk?”

He stared back at me, his gray eyes drilling into my face.
