"Logan," I repeated, mixing his name with an unhappy sigh.

Everyone turned and stared at me.

"What?" I asked, surprised by the sudden attention.

"The way you just said Logan," Stacey explained.

"It was the same way a person might say the word liver," Kristy put in.

"Or homework," added Claudia.

"What's the matter?" Kristy asked.

I sighed again. "It's just that..." My voice trailed off. It was so hard to put this into words. "Things don't seem to be...the way they were."

"In what way?" Stacey asked.

"I don't know. I used to feel so happy when I knew Logan was coming over or that I'd see him in school. Now I just feel like - Is he here again?" I couldn't believe I was really saying these things. But they were true.

"Things went flat like that for Josh and me," Claudia said, talking about her ex-boyfriend.

"But you and Josh have stayed friends," I replied. "I wonder if Logan and I could."

"Hold on!" Kristy cried, leaning way forward in her chair. "What do you mean 'If Logan and I could'? You're not actually thinking of breaking up with Logan, are you?"

It was weird. Up until that very moment I hadn't wanted to think beyond the fact that things weren't working. So the words that came out of my mouth next surprised even me.

"Yes," I said. "I think I am."

My friends stared at me as if they couldn't believe what they'd heard.
