As the school day continued, Bijou became more accustomed to the high school. As she found out, she shared her class with Hamtaro and Oxnard. Unfortunately for Bijou, she also shared the class with Boss and his friend Stan. Boss called it fate the two of them were in the same class, although Stan said that is was stalking. That joke earned a chuckle from Bijou and a glare from Boss. Class got boring really fast as the first since the first class of the day was Literature, followed by Art and Chemistry. But alas, it was finally lunch time. Let us take a gander at what is going on during the school's lunch.

"Oh man," Hamtaro said rubbing his head. I can't believe that we had a quiz to do on the first day of school. I am not going to like school much this year."

"It's not so bad," Oxnard said hoping to cheer up his friend. "At least we don't have to advance calculus with Mr. Eggy."

"Yeah, you're right Oxy." Hamtaro said with a sigh of relief.

"Who's Mr. Eggy?" Bijou asked.

"He is just one of, if not the most difficult math teacher in our country," Oxnard stated.

"Plus he's shaped like an egg," said a voice from behind the trio.

"Hey Maxwell," Hamtaro said with a smile. "I didn't expect you to here for lunch."

"Well the library was closed," said the teen with brown hair said. "So I decided to see what was for lunch."

"Hey Maxwell, are you able to hang out after school?" Hamtaro asked.

"Since there's no homework due I could make it," Maxwell said after pondering the idea. "Is Sandy going to be there?"

"I don't know but I'll check for you," Hamtaro said. "Oh that's right. We have a new friend Maxwell."

"Oh I noticed," Maxwell said with a smile. "I'm sorry for not introducing myself earlier. My name is Maxwell Noppo. It is a pleasure to meet you."

"It's ok. My name is Bijou Ribon," she said giving him a bow. "I hope we can be friends."

"HEY!" a familiar voice bellowed from across the lunchroom. "What are you doing talking MY GIRL!?"

Maxwell gave a look at Bijou and asked, "Are you two together?" Bijou shook her head no as fast as she could. "Well, it looks like Boss as taking a shine to you. He won't be giving up anytime soon."

"Oh I see," Bijou said looking a little down. "If only they knew what happened, then he wouldn't want to date me."(A.N Just a heads up. Usually in my stories, italics indicate thoughts. Back to the story.)

"Well, I'll see you guys later today," Maxwell said before walking off. Just as he left, Boss and Stan come over to Hamtaro, Oxnard, and Bijou.

"Hey where did Maxwell go," Boss said looking a little frustrated. "I gotta give him a piece of my mind."

"So Stan, you up for hanging out tonight?" Hamtaro asked.

"Yeah, the usual right?" Stan asked answering the question.

"What's going on?" Boss asked.

"Of course the usual," Hamtaro said with a smile. "Do you think your sister can make it?"

"Well, as long as she doesn't have practice," Stan pondered for a bit. "Is this about Maxwell?"

"Stop ignoring me," Boss said looking a bit unhappy.

"I mean it bound to happen sooner or later," chimed in Oxnard. "I mean it's been like seven years since the summer camp thing."

"Oh yeah I forget about that," Stan said before getting a smirk on his face. "Bijou, how would you like to meet my sister? I think you too would get along nicely."

"That would be great," Bijou said with a smile. "It's always great to have another girl to talk to."

"We can talk about that stuff," Hamtaro said.

"No Hamtaro," Bijou said laughing a little bit. "It's girl stuff."

"I can handle girl stuff," Hamtaro said looking as brave as he could.

"Ok, come here and I'll whisper something to you," Bijou said with a smirk. As Hamtaro stood by Bijou and listened to her, his face became more and more bored by the second.

"Ok ok," Hamtaro walked away. "I can't handle it. Too much talk about shoes and clothes and do you think that you've gained weight. Boss, why are you looking so gloomy?"

"He's fine," Stan said preparing to walk away. "So we'll be there around seven. I'll bring some more people. Later you guys. Come on Boss, let's go get some food."

Hey guys. Sorry about the long wait and the short chapter. I had to finish up my spring and summer semester for college and the time just got away from me. I hope you enjoy this chapter and can let me know if anything could be better.
