The next day, Katie Ng aka Jas on the MSN eyed her nemesis, Edgar Tay warily. Maybe Lonestar was right and she had misunderstood him after all. But her history with him had not been exactly peaceful, so naturally, he was the first person to jump to mind when she sat on the puddle of water.
Engrossed in this line of thought, Katie entered the ladies and one of the cubicles, shutting the door quietly behind her.
“So what was Katie’s reaction when she sat on the water?” Katie suddenly heard a familiar snobbish voice say.
“Ooooh, you wouldn’t believe it. She jumped up about 5cm high into the air and it was soooo funny!”
“I heard that she screamed at Edgar before running out of the classroom in tears.”
“Haha, yeah…and she really looked like a madwoman at that time…”
“I so did not look like a madwoman!”
The two gossiping girls whirled around to find a furious Katie standing behind them.
“I can’t believe you sluts are so childish.” She chided them coolly despite the fire in her eyes, “I’ve always thought better of you.”
With that insult hanging in the air, Katie turned her back on them, and washed her hands before strolling calmly out of the ladies.
Much later when school had already ended, Katie approached Edgar and apologised to him for her thoughtlessness.
“I shouldn’t have screamed at you before finding out the truth.” She admitted abashedly, “I’m really sorry.”
Edgar gazed at her with an eyebrow raised for what seemed like an eternity, then he smiled and stood up.
“It’s ok.” He held out a hand, “friends?”
Another ICQ conversation:
Jas: n so now i’m friends with edgar…it feels kinda weird though…after being antagonists for so long…
Lonestar:: don’t worry…i haf a feeling dat u guys will turn out fine…
Edgar Tay aka Lonestar on the MSN grinned at the computer screen and pressed ‘enter’.
It was going to be an interesting friendship.
