Chapter 29

The rest of my classes went unusually slow, by the time it had reached lunch I was on the verge of exploding. Not only were the teachers suddenly packing on the homework and projects, but I had also searched all over for Mason during break and I wasn't able to find him anywhere. 

The frustrating part was that his classes intertwined with mine, so if he wanted to get to class he had to pass me in the halls like he did everyday. I've been keeping a sharp eye out so I wouldn't have missed him if he walked by. Either he left early or he's purposely going another way to avoid me.

I didn't have to be a genius to figure out which it was. But the thing that frustrated me the most was wondering why. Why is he avoiding me? Or am I just overreacting?

My thoughts came to an end when I zoned back into a hand waving in front of my face. "Earth to Lily," Jimmy commented as he continued to wave his had in front of my face. I ignored it and continued to poke my fork at my uneaten food. A school burrito, halfway microwaved. Oh joy.

"Whats with you Lily? This morning you were laughing until Niagara falls poured out of your eyes. All of a sudden your as dry as the Sahara."

I stared at Jimmy dumbfounded. Niagara Falls? Sahara? "What's with all this geography?" I asked, ignoring his point.

"I'm serious Lily. What happened? Is everything OK?" He asked, eyeing me carefully from across the lunch table. The rest of the group had gone together to get some ice cream, since Juniors are allowed to leave the school campus during lunch.

"Yeah, I'm fine... I guess..." I mumbled. I knew I was being a downer but I couldn't help myself.

"Well when you decide to bring Lily back, let me know cause Jimmy will be here waiting." he responded while folding his arms and sticking his nose high up in the air. I couldn't help but wave off my bad mood and laugh.

"I'm sorry Jimmy... I know this isn't like me." I apologized.

"Does this mean Lily's back?" he asked while lifting one eyebrow up curiously and looking at me sideways.

I laughed, "Yes Jimmy. Lily's back."

He turned all the way and stared back at me with a wide grin.  Before I knew it Jimmy was out of his seat and pulling me into a tight awkward hug over the lunch table. His arms were around my hands, preventing me from hugging him back, so I just stood there oddly.

He pulled away still smiling, I couldn't be happier for having such a great friend like him around. "Hey that reminds me. What are you doing Saturday?" he asked, his mood suddenly serious.

"Umm... I don't know. Why?" I asked, eyeing him curiously.

"Great! In that case, you can help me out with something," he replied beaming with happiness.

"Are you gonna make me help you out at the Cafe again? Cause if you are then I'm busy that day." I replied quickly. Last time I attempted at helping him at the Cafe ended in a disaster.

"Don't worry," he laughed, "This will be way better. Promise."

"Well, can I know what it is?" I asked curiously. "I hope it's not something ridiculous..." I mumbled, hoping he wouldn't hear me.

"Hey! I heard that!" he joked, glaring at me playfully. "And it's a surprise." he added on as he tossed the rest of his lunch in the trash next to us.

I did the same and turned back to him but before I could find out more, the bell cut me off. Jimmy and I said goodbye and parted our ways, agreeing to meet together after school.
