The bell rang, indicating the end of school. I texted Alex at the end of class that I'm going to find Dylan and apologize for my unintentional behaviour. He replied with an 'OK, I'll wait for you in the car' so I walked out of class and just strolled around the corridors, looking for any sight of Dylan. 

I would look for him at his locker, but the problem is- I don't know where his locker is apparently. I roam around the halls, asking familiar people whether they've seen Dylan anywhere, but sadly, no one's sure. 

After a few more minutes of strolling around, I bump into someone. And that someone happens to be Dylan. "There you are!" I exclaim as I compose myself. "I've been looking for you," I tell him. 

"Sorry," he says. "I had to stay after class. Anyway, why were you looking for me?" He asks, avoiding my gaze. He starts walking ahead so I follow him and fall into step beside him. 

"I wanted to apologize," I say sheepishly. 

He gives me a look of disbelief, "um what for?" He stops at a locker- his locker, I guess- and opens it. 

"For the way I acted in the morning," I say. "I was being rude when you were only looking after me." I swear, I see a blush form on his face. 

"It's okay," he gives me a small smile. "We all have bad days, you didn't have to apologize." He puts a few books inside his locker and locks it. He turns to me, "have you, by any chance, seen Zack? I'm supposed to be driving." 

"Uh, no, sorry," I say sheepishly. "Why don't you call him?" 

"Because," he says slowly, "he could be in the middle of something important. And I don't want to disturb him." 

"You're too cute," I say for the millionth time, causing his already red cheeks to redden even more. 

"Um.. thanks..." he becomes flustered, making me laugh at his state. 

"I should leave now," I say, "I'll see you tomorrow?" 

"Yeah," he says, still not recovered from his flushed state. 

"Bye, Dylan," I give him a smile and walk away, towards my own locker. I quickly drop my books and shove my assignments in my bag and close my locker. I leave the school building and head for Alex's car, that's parked right in front of the school's entrance.
