The girl that had walked in on the scene had a confused expression, while I looked like a deer caught in the headlights. “Ah...What are you doin’?” She asked, walking over to me slowly. “You bout to…?” She pointed to my hand. I nodded slightly.
I don’t know why I answered her. I didn’t even know the girl but for some reason, her face, her emotions, showed something that I couldn’t recognize. Not disappointment, exasperation, amusement. Something else...
She suddenly grabbed my hand and took the small tablets out my hand and into hers. She turned around and threw them into the toilet in the open stall. She could’ve tossed them into the trash can that was sitting right next to her, but whatever. I looked at her with a bit of annoyance yet...relief...She turned around to me and pointed to the ground. “Sit.” She said with a slight stern voice. I complied with her instruction and sat on my bag. Funny, I haven’t even known the girl for five minutes and she’s already giving me directions. She leaned up against the wall and stared down at me, observing me. I fidgeted a bit, feeling uncomfortable with the eye contact. “Why? Why was you about to do that?” I looked at her oddly, noting her grammatical mistake. “I...I have my reasons...” I muttered, staring at my feet. “Hmm...a’ight, I guess. Tell me wheneva you ready to tell me.” She shrugged and set the pass she held in her hand on the ground. After sitting here in silence I started to weep quietly. I don’t know why, I guess...seeing as though someone actually cared, even a little bit. But then, she probably didn’t want to walk into a restroom and find a lifeless girl lying on the floor.
The other girl noticed me crying and bent down, her brown eyes level with my own blue and brown ones. “Stop cryin’, boo…” She whispered, reaching up a hand to wipe away my tears. The intercom beeped and a low voice began to speak. “Arizona T. Williams, please report to the principal’s office.” The girl frowned and stared up at the speaker. “They could at least pronounce my name right. It’s Ah-Rah-Zuh-Nay! Not Arizona!” She looked back at me, smiling a sheepish smile as she stood up. “Ah, I have to go. Prob’ly bout me skipping class. See ya later!” She gave me a peck on the cheek and made her way out of the restroom. I blushed and rubbed my pink-tinted face. Well, that was unexpected..
