I stood next to him. Why did I have to get paired up with him? Just because our dads were friends didn't mean we had to be. I was often forced to talk to him. No I don't like him. But why do I always blush when I'm around him? I sat down in the study hall. We could do our project anywhere and I didn't want my friends around. I sit down. "So what's our topic?" I say trying to avoid a lot of conversation.
