It was 12:15 so it was time for lunch. I got in line to grab my tray. Usually Megan got thee around the same time as I did. I didn't see her though, so I proceeded to the line. I was third in line. Megan and I usually always were at the front together. Where was Meg? About ten more students came in line before I say Meg walking up.
I did our usual little motion meaning 'come up here.' She saw but did our other usual motion meaning 'I'll explain at lunch.' The lunch ladies were finally ready to serve. I took my tray and asked for the pizza. It was a good lunch today which surprised me. Usually we had some weird named food like taco bites or cheese puffers or sauce soup. I don't know how they come up with names for the food here!
Along with the pizza, I got french fries, baby carrots, and grapes. Then I typed in my lunch code and headed over to the condiments table. I put ranch on my carrots and ketchup on my fries. I basically rushed over to our usual table.
We sat in the far back where it was pretty secluded. I always rushed because even though we had our usual spots at the table, sometimes there wasn't enough room for everyone. It was a six-seated table, and there were six of us, but sometimes Britany Calisto took one of our spots. It always makes me so mad!
Britany is so annoying. She just can't shut her yap! It would be fine if she actually said something interesting. All she really ever talks about is how her friends won't talk to her. No wonder.
Anyway, I got to the table in plenty of time. Trisha and Chloe were already there because they always brought their lunches. I don't know why, but Chloe always packed so little. She only packed a salad, if you could call it that. I mean, it was really only limp lettuce and a few little tomato bits.
"Geez Chlo. I'm pretty sure a newborn eats more than that!" I say trying to emphasize my point.
"I'm not that hungry at lunch I guess." She stated glancing at her pile of lettuce. "You should see me at supper or breakfast though! I eat like a pig!" Chloe snorted as she laughed.
Chloe has a dry sense of humor. She finds many things funny that the rest of us don't. Chloe did however eat like a pig outside of lunch. I could verify that 100%!
Whenever we have a sleepover at her house, which is pretty big, her mom always makes the biggest breakfasts and dinners! Breakfast is usually pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausages, waffles, and some chocolate milk or lattes to drink. Dinners were usually homemade pizzas and chips, then brownies, cookies, and a bunch of candy to pig out on for dessert.
Lunches at her house however, were usually just a sandwich and maybe some baby carrots. (That's why I always sneak some candy or desserts in a baggie for lunch).
"I'll agree with you on that one." Trisha replied to Chloe's food comment.
I saw Megan walking up to the table and immediately pointed to the seat next to mine. She sat right next to me like I'd wanted.
"Spill!" I demanded. I didn't even know if her being late to lunch was a big deal or not, but for some reason, I badly wanted it to be.
"Spill what?" Trisha asked clearly confused.
"Okay. So I was late to lunch today, " Megan looked at Trish and Chloe when she made that statement, "and I have a good reason for it!"
Right then, Jade and Lea walked up and sat down. Just in time actually, because as soon as they both sat down, Britany saw and walked away.
"What are we talking about?" Lade asked interested.
"Meg is telling us something." I looked back at Megan begging her to continue. It didn't take much bagging.
"Okay, so I was late to lunch because..." she paused, "Ty just asked me out!"
Meg has had a crush on Ty for like a year! She's been waiting for him to ask her out.
"What did you say?" Lea asked intrigued and clearly anxious.
Lea always loved to talk about boys. She's dated a lot of boys. If you wanted to talk about guys, she was the one to go to.
"Yes! Duh!" Meg said as if the whole world should've known her answer.
We all eeked! Meg hasn't ever had a boyfriend. Neither has Trish. Trish has never even liked a guy that way. She says she's not looking for a relationship yet. We all think that she has a secret crush on Jason Petzle. She always talks to him so sweetly. They'd make a great couple in my opinion.
