AN EXCERPT FROM RED AUGUST [GOOD FRIENDS]

Red August

“Yeah.  Why weren’t you at school today?  You’ve been absent forever!  There are a lot of rumors going around. I really think you need to come in and clear things up.”

“I don’t care.  What time is it?”

“It’s like 2:30.  I’m coming over, I’ve got to talk to you.”

“Oh, Lainy, I don’t feel like―”

“Too bad.  I’ll be there in 20 minutes.”  Lainy hung up.  August was only slightly annoyed at having to deal with this intrusion of reality, but she also had to admit that she really did need to get some of this off her chest, and she couldn’t think of anyone she’d rather tell than Lainy.
