“Dude, what are you staring at, the wall?â? Mike snaps me out of my ogling trance. I drop all my books into my locker and suggest skipping class today. Mike stares at me: an A+ student ready to skip class. To my surprise however, he follows after with a chortle.
“Wow, you’re really new to this, aren’t you? Don’t you know that you have to skip class with someone? Otherwise it’s just not fun,â? he begins to walk back to his locker but I stop him. “I already am meeting someone, I just forgot about it until now,â? I can feel my nose flaring- a telltale sign that I’m lying.
Mike just nods but keeps his eyes on my nostrils, like he’s asking me to tell him the truth. I realize that my fist is still locked around his forearm. I release him, and walk away.
