THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 55

Rivalry

Before Lindsey could say anything,
the lunch bell rang.
Without even a wave of farewell,
she dashed off,
leaving me to walk back to class alone
and ponder
exactly how I could get that notebook back
and dispose
of it before Maddy and Amanda could write
any more insults.
It was still too early to tell whether
Lindsey would
become an ally. She knew the boy, the one
I wanted.
She had spoken to him more than I had because
she is braver.
I’ll never know her intentions because
I was scared
to ask, not sure I wanted to know.
