I didn't realize I was sitting next to Bryan in Math class until Friday. All he ever does is read and he never talked. I wanted to talk to him. Figure out his stories.
"Hey, Invisible Boy. Gonna introduce yourself?" I say, putting my elbow on my desk and my chin in my hand.
For the first time, he closed his book. He put it down on the cold desk, next to his homework. "Sorry for not introducing myself, Goth Chic, but you haven't introduced yourself either. So please, nice to meet you."
Before I could even protest, he picked up the book where he left off and began reading again.
After that, I was determined to get to know him better. Invisible Boy wouldn't be that way forever.
On Monday, I made sure to get there early so we had at least 5 minutes to talk. When I got there, as usual, he was reading.
"Hey Invisible Boy, I have a question." I open up my homework.
"Hmm Goth Chic?" He flips a page.
"What do you do on fine Friday evenings?" I get out my drawing journal.
"Well, like every other idiotic teenager in this town, I steal wine from vineyards and brings it to parties. Sounds totally me right?" A grin spreads on his face for the first time since I've known him.
"Oh yes. Sounds tempting." I start drawing a butterfly.
"So why did you want to know?" Page flip.
"Well, Breakdown Shakes is opening up on Friday and I was wondering if you would want to order some crazy shakes there with me to freak people out." I finish a wing.
"Mmm, sounds tempting."
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime offer. Your life is on the line."
"My life? Oh dear! Then I guess I have to go against my will." Page flip.
"Excellent. Be at my house by eight." I close my drawing journal.
"Indeed, Goth Chic. Indeed."
