CLAUDIA AND THE FRIENDSHIP FEUD

Jeremy and I talked about everything except Stacey.

I looked over at the clock. Nine twenty-one P.M.

We'd been on the phone for almost an hour.

"Do you realize it's almost nine-thirty?" I said.

"No way!" he said. "I'll be in trouble if my dad finds out I'm still on the phone. It's so late and it's Sunday! Won't your parents get mad?"

"Well, I have my own phone."

Jeremy sounded impressed. "Wow."

I wasn't about to explain the BSC to him then, so I left it at that.

"So I guess I'll see you around school," Jeremy joked.

"Around every corner, apparently," I said.

"I'm glad we talked, Claudia."

"Me too. Have a good night."

As I hung up the phone, I heard it again - loud thumping inside my chest. And my mind was racing.

If Stacey knew what had just happened she would -

Better not to think about it.

Stacey didn't have anything to do with Jeremy's calling me. It was his decision and his decision alone. Besides, he just wanted a friend. He was NOT flirting. He was just talking. Jeremy Rudolph was still dating Stacey McGill. He'd said that.

I reached into my closet to sneak one of the cookies from my secret stash. It was time to eat something sweet.

I, Claudia Kishi, eat whenever I am stressed. And really, really confused - like right now.

I wondered if Jeremy felt the same way.
