“Oh, um, you said the book was good so I figured I would borrow it from the school’s library,” West nervously tried to explain.
“But this book has Raine’s name on the inside of the front cover.” “West, why did you take my book? And then lie about it?” “And you tried to blame me,” Claire added, sending West an accusing glare.
West looked into his girlfriend’s eyes, and apologized, “I’m sorry, Raine. I just feel like every time I see you, your nose is in that book. So I took your book hoping that if you didn’t have it you would spend some time with me rather than the stupid book. I-”
“You should’ve talked to me,” Raine interrupted, “You know that I would choose you over any book in a heartbeat. I promise I will try to hang out with you more than my book.” “Thank you Raine. I really am sorry,” West hung his head in shame.
“Eh, it’s fine. I will be keeping my locker locked from now on, so nobody can steal anything of mine, especially my book,” Raine joked, pointing at West, making them all laugh. They finally left the school, glad to have two weeks away from homework, drama, and stress.
