Haz spill,” Paige said into her glittery pink cell phone.
“What are you talking about?”
“I heard Ava went all crazy-girl on
Marco and you and Jimbo were there.”
“Paige school doesn’t even start
for 30 minutes. How did you hear that already?”
“Don’t worry your little self
with how I heard just explain why I didn’t hear it form you.”
“Well if you turned your phone on and
you would have heard it from me yesterday. Where were you last night? I call you like 900 times!”
“I might have had a small date with
someone who will remain nameless unless you tell what you know,” Paige
You have to tell me now. Who was it?”
“I’m waiting,” Paige said
like she was bored.
“For what? Come on Paige stop stalling lets hear it. Who?”
“I want to hear about the little Ava/Marco
“I don’t know anything. That’s was I was callin you. I knew you could find out.”
“Weren’t you there?” Paige
asked with a huff
“I walked up after Ava and Marco both
had already left. Jimmy was there but he said Marco wouldn’t tell him what
was going on. Happy now?”
Hurry up and come get me so we can get to the bottom of this. I don’t
want any of my friends being pissy with each other.”
“Paige I have been in your driveway
for 10 minutes honking the horn,” Hazel sighed.
“Why didn’t you say so? Never mind,” Paige said while snapping her phone shut
and getting into Hazel’s car.
Ava was standing at her locker getting ready
for homeroom when the Paige/Hazel attack hit.
“So why did you go all crazy on Marco?” Paige said with her arms crossed over her chest.
“Are you talking about yesterday after
school?” Ava asked confused.
Paige gave Ava a look that could have set
her hair on fire. “Uh yeah hun. As
far as I know that is the only time you freaked on Marco.”
“It was nothing. Marco said something to Ellie. I just suggested that maybe
he should rethink the comments he made. Ellie said he did so I will talk to him
later and apologize for jumping down his throat about it.”
“Well what did Marco say to Ellie? They are like best friends.”
“You will have to talk to Ellie and
Marco about that,” Ava said before waking away.
“Sounds like someone’s got a secret,” Paige smiled. “I could really use
a good challenge. Let’s go find the other two.”
“The bell is about to ring you will
just have to talk to them later. But you can tell me about your date now,” Hazel coaxed.
“Well I don’t know if you can
really call it a date.”
“I don’t care what you call it
just give me the details,” Hazel said impatiently as they walked into class and took their seats.
“Well you know I went to see Dyl after
school yesterday,” Paige began.
Does this involve a hot college guy?”
Well after I left Dylan’s I stopped by the Dot for some dinner. And
someone we know was there eating alone too. So I sat with him. We talked a bit then he told me about this band he liked was playing at some club downtown so we went. We danced, we laughed, we kissed. But
we never really called it a date so I don’t know that is what I should say.”
“Paige if you made out then it turned
into a date.”
“I didn’t say made out Hazel. I said kissed. It was just one, sweet,
innocent kiss. It was soft and amazing,”
Paige now had a goofy grin spread across her face.
“Paige I want a name now!”
Craig Manning,” Paige replied with the goofy grin still intact.
“Craig, as in your friends’ boyfriend,
Manning,” Hazel said once she finally got her dropped jaw to work.
“Haz, come on Ash is gone to England
and she is staying for some guy. He is not her boyfriend any more,” Paige’s grin was gone.
“Okay so are you going out again?”
“I guess. If he asks.”
“It sounds like you two had a great
time. I’m sure he will ask.”
“Ladies would you like to continue this
later in detention?” Mr. Armstrong asked.
“Pay attention to the morning announcements,” he said sternly after both girls said no.
