P- Will you have a drive home?
M- I'll take the bus to the hospital. Mom is coming back today.
P- I could drive you there if you want.
M- I'm not sure that's the best idea.
P- You're probably right. I'll see you later then.
M- Yeah see you around.
I exited the car and went to my locker.
L- Where you just with Peter?
M- Yeah, he drove me to school.
L- I take it you two have made up.
M- Huh huh.
L- I want the details. Did he apologize? What did he say? Are you going out now?
M- I thought you hated him.
L- I don't. Whatever happened with him is in the past now... If he breaks your heart though then I will definitely beat him up.
I laughed. I couldn't believe I wasn't her friend sooner.
M- If you must know, we decided to stay friends for now.
L- You guys are no fun.
M- I'm not ready for a relationship and neither is he.
L- I see. Have you talked to Anna then?
M- She stopped by in the evening but didn't tell me anything. To be honest I don't understand her anymor: one minute, she is dying to talk to me and the next she avoids me.
L- Maybe she's scared.
M- Scared of what?
L- I don't know. How you will react to whatever she is hiding.
M- Maybe you're right. To be honest I don't know what to think of all this anymore. She was talking to Caleb about something but neither of them wants to tell me what it was.
L- Do you think that maybe they were dating back then?
M- Definitely not. At first I had my doubts but when I asked Caleb about it, he said that he only saw her as a sister.
L- What about Anna?
M- I never asked her, he's not really her type anyways.
L- Well if you say so.
The bell rang.
L- I'll see you at lunch then, there's something I want to talk about.
M- Okay see you.
What was it about? I spent the morning wondering what Linda wanted to tell me but I couldn't come up with anything.
Why was I so stupid? Why couldn't I say anything?
I thought that Mel hated me but turned out she didn't. Still I couldn't have stayed even if I wanted to. It was too hard. After school, I decided to visit Mrs. Adams at the hospital.

I headed toward the front desk.
