Fifteen minutes later, my mom dropped me off in front of the main entrance to SMS. I bolted for my locker, hoping that Jeremy hadn't already passed by. His homeroom is in the same hall as my locker, so I see him nearly every morning.

I put my jacket away, then leaned casually against my locker, waiting. What would I say to him? How could I bring up the subject of his breakup with Stacey? I practiced a few possibilities in my mind. So, I heard you broke up. How does it feel to be free at last? Looking for a new girlfriend, by any chance?

Ugh. I decided it was better to be quiet and see what Jeremy had to say. I waited, excited and very, very nervous.

Finally, I spotted him walking down the hall in the middle of a crowd of boys. His hair looked shiny and clean, and he was wearing a red corduroy shirt that went beautifully with his eyes.

He saw me at the same time I saw him.

He smiled.

He gave me a little wave.

And he walked on by.

I felt one of the chopsticks fall out of my bun. And I felt my heart drop to the floor.

That wasn't what I'd expected.

All the time I had figured that now Jeremy and I would either be:
A) Friends or
B) More Than Friends.

I hadn't even considered possibility C): Less Than Friends.
