"People get curious, ok? And when
people get curious it messes up the
system," the man with a very
monotoned deep voice says. "I know
that. I just think we should let the
know more about what's happening
before they start rebelling," the man
with the lisp says. " I know that Sam."
So the man with the lisps name is Sam.
"I also know that if we give them too
much information they could find out
about the plan." I realize that I
recognize this persons voice. "I have to
protect the people of this building and
the only way to do that is if they don't
know." Now it all clicks. The man
speaking is the head of the counsel.
Matt Andrews. The two men keep
going back and forth about this "plan."
Eventually I get bored and decide to
leave. I've been ease dropping for so
long that I lost track of time. I'm sure
Aaron has probably gone to lunch
herself by now. So I decide to just head
to the cafeteria alone. It's around two,
so the lunch crowd will probably be
gone figuring lunch is only in three
hours. I get in line to grab a quick
sandwich so I can get home fast. I sit
down at one of the empty tables. You
would think id feel awkward sitting
alone but there's hardly anyone here
and plus I like the silence. I'm half way
through my sandwich when someone
sits in the chair next to me. I look up in
shock. It is a boy that stands above me.
It's Drew. Drew and I, we have a very
long history. It's complicated, well not
really. We were childhood best friends,
then we started to drift apart in our
beginning years of school. Not unusual
at all. We started becoming closer
again a few years ago. He told me he
liked me and to me felt like he led me
on. And maybe just maybe I started to
fall for him. That all changed when I
saw Drew kissing Aaron at school one
day. And for once I thought maybe just
maybe someone could like me without
taking a second glance at Aaron. I
guess I was wrong. It took a while for
me to trust Aaron again. But for Drew,
I never forgave him.
