SoCS — School Girl Crush

Speaking on the phone to her BFF, Elaine excitedly said, “I met a new guy. He’s in my homeroom and he’s so dreamy. He saw me gazing at him and he smiled back at me and I knew. I just instantly knew.”

“You knew? What did you know?” Megan asked her best friend.

“I knew that he and I are going to be girlfriend-boyfriend, silly,” Elaine said.

“How did you know that?” Megan asked. “Did you talk with him? Does he even know your name?”

“No, not yet,” Elaine admitted, “but I saw how he smiled at me when he saw me staring at him.”

“Yeah, Elaine, it was probably a nervous smile,” Megan said. “You probably freaked him out.”

“No, you’re wrong, Megan,” Elaine said. “You’re just jealous that I met the new boy before you did.”

“I’m not jealous, Elaine. But you haven’t even talked with him yet, so how can you be so sure he’s going to want to be your new boyfriend?”

“I knew you’d react this way, Megan,” Elaine said. “Why do you always have to be such a bitch? You are no longer my best friend. I hate you!” Elaine abruptly ended the call.

Megan sighed. What else is new? she thought.

    I’ll bet Megan’s already hooked up with him.

    Sounds like a friend I had (on again and off again) for many years.
