I stared at the card with her number on it, dumbly. I had never been given a girls phone number before, and I was quite shocked. Elidi. I wondered if her family was Greek or something, as it was a Greek name. She didn't look Greek though.

I got up, and put my books away. I had finished it all, and I wanted to stretch my legs. I knew I didn't have to worry about Chandra and Shain, as most people forgot about me quickly enough. 

The first thing I saw when I walked out, was Eve stood with Cymbeline. He was the only person who had wished me happy birthday today. I went to walk over, but Chandra beat me to it. I didn't want to tempt her, so I stayed and watched at a distance. Eve could handle herself.

A group formed, so I couldn't see Eve and Cymbeline any more. After around five minutes, they drifted of, with Chandra at the lead. I made my way over, and when Eve spotted me, she started to wave. 

"Ciro, where have you been all day?" she said. I just shrugged. 

"No where, just around. Homework and things." I said, sitting down next to her. I smiled at Cymbeline. 

"What was just happening?" I asked them, curiously. 

"Just my sister, making trouble." Cymbeline said to me. He turned to Eve. "Don't worry about her. I'll make sure that she doesn't cause any more trouble." 

"Don't worry about me. I can handle her." Eve said, and I laughed. She looked at me questioningly, then shrugged it of. She seemed a lot happier now, than from this morning. 

"I bumped into her before." I told them. They both looked at me. 

"What happened?" Eve asked me. 

"Well, I don't think that Shain took to me." I said to her. 

Eve, and Cymbeline started to talk again, and I just listened. I wasn't much of a talker sometimes, and I was happy to just staying in the background. Eve did my talking for me. 

"Science next, Ciro. Your in my class, right?" Cymbeline asked me, and I nodded, just as the bell went. 

"Go on then, boys. Best get to class." Eve said, standing up. "Meet me at the gates after school, Ciro." 

And with that she walked off. I waited till Cymbeline stood up, to walk to class with him. I tried to make conversation, but it seemed he went into a day dream. I didn't mind. I was happy to walk in silence. 

As I walked into class, I glanced back down at the card still in my hand. Could I really call this girl, Elidi? Putting it in my pocket, I made a note to think about it later. Now, I had to focus on Biology. 


The End
