Mouse still stared at Lucas in that same way. I also noticed Alice glancing at Chris and coyly looking away.... uh oh. Not again.
Leo ended up asking Michelle out on a date. Well. That was an unexpected odd couple. Michelle was already giggling and passing Leo love notes after one date. It was kind of creepy. Of course, Leo loved every minute of it. I felt a little left out. I mean, Leo had a girlfriend, Alice seemed to be making eyes at Chris and Mouse.... well, she doesn't count. But Jamie probably had a boyfriend, her friend Crystal probably did too. I wonder if that Harold kid had a girlfriend.... okay, that's not what it sounded like. I mean, it's not like I was going and signing up for a dating service or anything, but sometimes I wondered if it would be cool to have a boyfriend.
Oh, those eyes.... Alice stared at Chris's beautiful blue-green eyes. It was a normal French class, Angie was fast asleep, drooling up a miniature pond on her desk (yuck, she's going to get sick! Alice thought), Mouse was picking her nose and flinging spit balls at boys, Michelle and Leo were passing notes, etc etc. Alice caught herself, Oh geez, his eyes? Oh no.... Alice worried. She bit her lip and looked back at Chris. She just couldn't help herself, he was so lovable.... Alice knew it was hopeless, he couldn't love her back. Alice sighed and went back to her work.
Later, I invited Mouse, Leo, Alice, and Jamie to my house. After school, when we were at my house, Leo stood up, "I have an idea!" he announced. "Let's play Spin-The Bottle!" I laughed, "Leo, you are such a kid!"
"Kids don't play Spin The Bottle!" Alice laughed. "Leo just wants a chance to kiss girls!"
"You got that right, Sweets!" Leo said to Alice. Everyone made a "Oooohh!" sound and laughed. Alice shook her head, smiling at Leo's cheesy taunt. But her smile faded and she glanced over nervously at Chris. I knew she wouldn't want to play now.
"So, is everybody in?" I asked. Leo nodded
