Charlie was sitting in the classroom listening to the teacher go on and on. He thought about Annie, and how her day was looking up. He turned round to speak to her.
"Hey, you know that offer on lunch? Does it still stand?"
"of course" She said with a smile.
The Teacher had stopped to wait of Charlie to stop talking. He quickly turned around but kept the smile on his face.
At Lunch time Annie and Charlie sat down. They were alone cause Annie would usually sit with Jared, and Charlie wasn't exactly on friendship terms with him yet.
"So, tell me about this girl of yours."
Annie said, for once Charlie didn't know where to start. He could easily tell people about Beth and how much she meant to him, yet he couldn't find the words now.
"Beth? Well… she's, sweet, down to earth, pretty."
"you don't get girls like that a lot."
"no… I'm glad I met her."
As Charlie said this he thought about how Annie seemed to be just as he had described Beth, only she was blonde and Beth was brunette. He stopped himself. He knew he shouldn't have been thinking these things when he was with Beth. But deep down, he knew in his heart, whether or not he wanted to admit it, that Beth and him were as good as dead. There was no way this could have worked. It was like trying to get the more rarest medicine over in the world to bring them together, and it was most likely not going to happen. Annie broke his train of thoughts.
"and I hear you're a quarter back""Yeah, I was in Midlands."
"Just a warning… Jared plays quarterback."
"Jared? I thought you had to be big…"
"exactly! He's played like two matches and I'm pretty sure that they lost both!
"no competition then?""no I would say so."
At this the two of them laughed. Charlie knew that Jared wasn't so big as he thought he was. He would pound him in seconds. Yet he was worried of the consequences that could come with being friends with Annie.
