The crowded table
Wed Jan 27, 2010 22:09

Their table seemed to have gotten more crowded, Randy noted. Thom had brought Evangeline, Leo had Talora, and Troy had a gaggle of girls who were eager to try for an invitation to his Summer Party. It was hard enough to try and eat without getting his elbow into Thom’s creamed corn in the process. Which was why Thom had picked creamed corn to begin with. He looked over the plans his parents had for them this summer. It was just possible, with a lot of luck, that he might actually enjoy it and not end up Grace-sitting again.

“Hey check it” he nudged her, taking the tomato she had left on her plate “ they have a glass blowing demonstration. “ and when she didn’t respond he leaned a bit closer. “Real live fire.” he said in a teasing voice. Grace shuffled her casserole around and didn’t even try to steal his sweet roll. “You getting sick or something?”

“Guess so.” she muttered. She didn’t look up. If she did she’d see him and ..that…girl. And they’d be laughing at the joke they’d played on the stupid Reym girl.

Randy sighed. “ You can’t be sick before summer break Grace. They won’t let us on the plane. “ She shrugged. “ You spent this whole week telling me how you wanna go home, you can’t wait to go home.” she’d nearly run away back home . “We’re going home and now you’re all.. this. Is this--” he stabbed his shrimp pasta thoughtfully, trying to figure out a delicate way to say it. He came to realize there was no delicate way so he tried. “ Is this a female…thing?”

She looked at him and her lips quivered just a little. “You’re an idiot.” she told him.

“You‘re a dork. “ he answered.
