But soon after, a tall male walked into the classroom and started talking to the teacher, “My plane landed yesterday afternoon and the absence is excused. Is it okay to get the syllabus and work from yesterday.” The voice was so familiar. I knew that guy once, but I can’t put my finger on who it was.

The late bell rang, signalling the start of class and the end of me and Dylan’s conversation.
When class ended we went our separate ways. We rarely saw each other in the hallways, but when we did, we would smile at each other or make goofy faces. Dylan made me feel like I wasn’t a total reject and that I was normal and nothing bad could ever happen to me. But bad things always happen to me.
