Chapter 5: Sarah makes peace with Brittany, Corey, and Christy
Brittany and Sarah walked out together. They each went to their separate classes. Before parting, Sarah said, “Uh, Brittany?”
Brittany said, “Yeah, Sarah?”
Sarah suggested, “How about I come over to your lunch table and apologize to Corey?”
“That would be okay,” Brittany said.
Sarah said, “And I’ll see Christy before lunch and will apologize to her.”
Sarah then looked hopefully at Brittany. Brittany understood and said, “Look, I’ll talk to Corey about the other idea after you apologize to him. Now, no promises, but I’ll see what I can do.”
Sarah said, “Thanks, Brittany. Well, see you at lunch.”
At lunch time, true to her word, Sarah came by. She waited to make certain that both Corey and Brittany were sitting at the table together. Sarah said, “Uh, Corey?”
Corey said, “Yeah, Sarah?”
Sarah said, “I want to apologize big time for telling you and Brittany those lies. I’m really, really sorry and will never do anything like that again. I hope you can forgive me???”
Corey nodded, “Yeah, okay. No hard feelings!”
Sarah said, “Thanks, Corey. Thanks, Brittany. Well, …, see you later.” Sarah walked off, giving Brittany one last hopeful glance.
After she was gone, Brittany said, “Uh, Corey?”
“What, Brittany?” Corey asked with a loving smile.
Brittany said, “Sarah said this morning that she kind of hoped you could hook her up with one of your friends. What do you think?”
Corey said, “I’ll have to think about it. After all, my friends don’t want to be around girls who tell lies either. Tell you what! Tell her that if she sticks to her agreement to leave you and me alone, maybe sometime, I MIGHT do that. Now, that’s not a promise. It kind of depends on her.”
Brittany said, “That sounds more than fair! Now let’s talk about other things. I’m kind of tired of thinking about her. Instead, let’s talk about our movie date this weekend. I’d much rather talk about that.”
Corey smiled and said, “Me too!” Brittany and Corey had a great time for the rest of the lunch period talking about their weekend date.
