We pulled into the parking lot of a nice sandwich shop a little bit down the road from the police station and got out of the car. I guess I never noticed how hungry I was. I skipped breakfast unintentionally and didn't really notice my hunger while going through all that happened this last hour.
I grabbed the handle to the door and pulled to open it.
"Sam! Maddie! Wait up!" I heard someone say. I turned around to see Alex shut the door to his car and run up to us.
"Hey Alex how's it going?" Maddie asked.
"Good, good. How about you Sam? How are you doing with all of this?" He asked looking worried.
"You know could be better." I said. That was my answer to almost anything. I still wonder why people still ask me, they know what I'm going to say. He walked up to me and hugged me. It was sudden, I mean I definitely wasn't expecting it. It felt nice though so I hugged him back.
"A little better?" He smiled and I nodded.
"Can I join you guys?" He asked changing the subject.
"Of course!" Maddie answered and we made our way into the sandwich shop.
"Hi good morning." The girl at the counter said with a polite smile.
"Good morning." We all said in unison.
"What can I get you guys today?" She asked wiping down the counter. She looked familiar. I think I've seen her around school before.
"Um I'm going to get the veggie sandwich no onions though." I said and Maddie seconded that.
"And for you sir?" She asked.
"I'm going to get the meatball sub please." He said smiling.
"Alright I'l have the right out for you guys," She said.
"Wait a second do you go to Lakewood High?" I asked. Well I had to t was really bugging me.
"Ya I do! You reconize me?" She asked.
"Ya I do, I'm Sam by the way." I said.
"Ya I know, I mean most Freshmen do and everyone else in the school." She laughed nervously. "Oh! I'm Sarah by the way." She said and I felt my heart drop.
"Sorry did I say something?" She asked sounding embarrassed.
""Oh no, just I knew someone named Sarah." I said.
"Oh ok." She replied relieved.
"So anyways, you said everyone in the school knows who I am?" I asked a little confused. Lakewood is a huge school. There's a ton of kids there, probably over 3000.
"Well ya! You're like the most popular girl in school right now. You're like famous. You Alex, Maddie and the other four boys you hang around with anyways. You guys are the cool kids." She said and I widened my eyes.
"What? Are you serious?" I asked really surprised.
"Ya! Of course!" She said.
"Wow." I said raising my eye brows.
"Alright here are your sandwiches." She smiled putting three plates down on the table.
"Maddie, Alex get over here." I said taking my plate and sitting down at one of the tables.
They sat down next to me a few seconds later.
"So get this, we are the most popular kids in school right now according to the freshie over there." I said taking a bite out my sandwich.
We stayed there for probably 45 minutes before we finally decided to leave.
"Bye Sarah it was great talking to you." I said making my way to the door.
"Bye you guys see you around school!" She said and we left.
"Hey you guys want to come over?" Alex asked unlocking his car.
"Ya sure...now?" Maddie asked.
"Ya or whenever. " He said.
"Ok, we'll be right behind you." Maddie said and we both got into the car.
