I didn't hear a single word of what the teacher was saying through the whole of PSHE. Instead, I just stared out of the window, thinking about nothing in particular.
I jerked upright, shaking my head and blinking like crazy.
"Huh? What?" I said in a hurry. Oh, damn, the teacher was going to ask me an SRE question.
Come on stupid bell, just go, I thought.
And then a piercing wail shrieked through the classroom. The fire bell! Thank god!
As the class trooped out of the classroom, I couldn't help thinking, Coincidence or what!
By the time we'd all got outside, the teachers had done the registers to make sure we were all there and gone back in, the bell for the end of school went.
Naturally, I grabbed my bag and ran out of there as fast as I could.
And ran straight into Koray Cohen.
