She felt bad when the boy - she could almost remember his name but not quite - looked up at her. “Are you okay?” She asked awkwardly around her pile of books.

          The other student professed to be alright, and he got up to prove it. Claudia was relieved, and hoped he didn't think her rude for not putting down her text books and offering assistance. “I’m glad... more
