“Sigh. What is it, Eric?”
“You might be a little surprised.”
“So whispering in study hall is really the best way to discuss it?”
“I finally worked up the nerve.”
“Your nerves have sucky timing, like when you puked during the pep rally.”
“I blame the cafeteria, but that’s not the same kind of thing. This is big...well, two bigs.”

“I don’t know what they are!”
“Hehe, right. Ready?”

“Ew! Eric, you’re my brother!”
“Is there a problem, Miss Humphry?”
“Um, no Ms. Stone.”
“Shut it. You’re my brother. Stop creeping me out.”
“But, that’s the other big.”
