Lunch was always a problem. Recently I had decided to stay in the library, and save lunch for home. It was cowardly of me. But, considering this morning’s events, I decided eating with other homosapians would do me some good.
Besides, Angela’s been asking you for eons. It’s about time you showed up.
I frowned at the invisible voice inside of me.
I stalked into the cafeteria, looking ahead at the tall brunette that was waving me down. I won’t look at anything else, I promised myself. I didn’t want to take the risk.
Angela was grinning as I plopped my tray down. I smiled. It was nice to see a happy face, even if Angela was horribly naive. Who could be happy in the real world?
“So, what made you decide to join us?”
I looked up, surprised. Jennie stared coldly at me from across the table. I looked down quickly.
“Jennie!” Angela looked astounded. I wasn’t. She looked over at me. “She didn’t mean it.” Then, to Jennie: “Right?”
“Right.” Jennie answered snidely. Angela didn’t seem to notice.
