Craig and Alonza have been best friends since they were little kids. They've sat next to each other on the bus every day since kindergarten.
Even though they're best friends, they couldn't be more different. Alonza is the epitome of a star student: she's pensive, always gets her homework done on time and studies in her free time. Craig on the other hand cares less about school and more about his looks. Although they're just friends, Alonza has to admit that Craig is suave.
Alonza really had a crush on a boy from her calculus class, Chris.
Hey, Alonza. How's it going?
Um fine, bye!
Chris always makes Alonza feel nervous, and she becomes shy and bashful when she's around him.
Alonza leaned over and tried to whisper surreptitiously to Craig: I have a crush on Chris.
I SAID I HAVE A CRUSH ON CHRIS!!!!
Unfortunately, Alonza was not surreptitious at all. In fact her behavior was so conspicuous, so noticeable, that even the mean girl in class, Laura heard what she had said.
