Things had been awkward between them lately. She had no idea what was wrong, so, finally, she confronted him about it.

It was after school, but they were still in the halls. She walked up to him, looking a bit angry, and asked him what the hell his problem was.

“What my problem is? Well nothing’s my problem. Except that your boyfriend is a total jerk!”

She looked at him with some surprise. Her boyfriend? Who was he talking about? But before she could ask, he ran outside, into the rain.

She followed him.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about!” she screamed, getting soaked as she ran behind him.

“Now get up and come inside where we can talk in peace, as opposed to out here in the rain!”

They were on the football field right then, another reason to go inside. Practice would begin soon.

He whirled around, facing her, and looked her in the eye. Suddenly she realized the reason that he was so jealous of her “boyfriend.”

He was still angry, though,...

(prequeled it!)
