I told Big Janet, Briana Joy, and Kana about my conversation with Skipper, and about how I had gone to the park and asked Bob to introduce me to his friend. Kana asked me if Bob had ever tried to hold my hand, and I said "Well, at the Homecoming dance, he took my hand when he escorted me to the dance floor." She said "That doesn't count. Anything since then?" I told her no, and she said "Well then he definitely doesn't think you're his girlfriend."
I was really interested in what they thought about his words "I'll see you later, okay?" I did my best imitation of his voice, and tried to capture his exact facial expression and movements.
Kana: "Maybe he meant that he was going to call you later?"
Me: "No, he didn't call."
Briana Joy: "Maybe he meant he'd see you at school."
Me: "But he always sees me at school, so why would he call out to me just to say that?"
Janet: "Maybe he's madly in love with you and he just wanted to see your face once more before you left."
Me: "Shut up Janet!"
We went through several more "maybes" before Briana Joy sighed and asked "Why don't you just ASK HIM to be your boyfriend?" I said "I can't do that!" She asked why not and I told her because he's the boy, so he's supposed to ask. She told me that I'm old fashioned, and that this is the year 2010 and not 1910, and that I should just talk to him instead of trying to guess about how he feels. I told her that she just doesn't understand, but that she will when she's a little older. She didn't like that at all!
As I was about to leave, I told Janet "Oh yeah, Dylan asked about you." Her eyes got big and she said "He did?! What did he say?!" I told her "He said 'Where's Janet?'" Then she wanted to know what I said, and I told her that I just shrugged my shoulders. THEN she wanted to know if he said anything else, and how he looked when he asked about her. Kana said to Janet "You like him, don't you?" Janet said "Who Dylan? No! I just think he's...nice." The big smile on Janet's face made me wonder though.
