hannah baker
hmm
i guess
i just wanted to say that
i'm sorry

mathilda
okay...
for what?

hannah baker
for you know...
hanging out with your
boyfriend...
i swear i didn't know that
he's in a relationship with you

mathilda
was

hannah baker
what do you mean
"was"

mathilda
we're not in a relationship
anymore

hannah baker
oh...
i am truly sorry

mathilda
nah it's ok
it's not your fault
anyway

hannah baker
i feel like it is

mathilda
relax :)
i get it, you are new
and you probably didn't know
anything about this school
including how a jerk
people can be

hannah baker
yep
that's basically it

mathilda
i just wanted to say
that i want to apologize
on justin's behalf
you know
sending all that picture
and making all the rumors
that's some crazy shit

hannah baker
you don't think
the rumors are true?

mathilda
of course i don't
or should i?

hannah baker
no!
i mean
i'm kinda surprised i guess?

mathilda
why?
because i didn't believe him?

hannah baker
yes
everyone seemed to

mathilda
someone who believes
that stupid rumor is
stupid indeed

hannah baker
so i guess
half of the school
is stupid?

mathilda
yep
you got it
so how was liberty high so far

hannah baker
it's been...
i don't know
good? i guess
it's okay

mathilda
wow, you're pretty good at
adapting to this school
you know....
i moved to this city two years
earlier than you

hannah baker
really?

mathilda
yep
i got no friend for
probably the first couple
of months
i usually sat by myself
when we had lunch

hannah baker
no way
but you're so....
popular
and pretty

mathilda
thanks for the compliment?
anyway, i joined the cheer squad
met lots of new 'friend'
the only friend that i admit is
jeff atkins
i also met justin there

hannah baker
i see

mathilda
we've been dating ever since
fun fact : tomorrow is our
1st year anniversary
but i guess we didn't have to
celebrate it ??

hannah baker
once again
i'm so sorry

mathilda
no it's okay
really
by the way, if you need someone
to talk or someone to accompany you
don't be shy, just say hi to me
if i'm not with jeff atkins,
i'm probably all by myself
the 'lone cheerleader'

hannah baker
yes
thank you very much
i will keep that in mind
glad talking to you

mathilda
likewise

MANNAHHH......
