The bell rang out, signaling that lunch was over. Hailey grabbed her book, shoved it back into her backpack, and stood up. “Sorry,” she said as she picked up her tray. “I have to get to my algebra class.”
“Could we meet again?” Sebastian asked before she walked away.
She didn’t turn around in fear that he would see the look of shock on her face. She choked out a “yes” and forced herself to look calm as she sat back down and scribbled her phone number down on a clean napkin. Fynn and Sebastian smiled at her as she handed it to them and stood up.
“I guess I’ll talk to you guys later, then,” she said as she swung her backpack over her shoulder and walked away. There truly is a first time for everything, she thought as she threw the remains of her lunch into the trash and set her tray with the other dirty ones.
