Mark chased me down after school today just so he could talk to me. He said that he was worried about me and wanted to know how I was doing. He was just so SWEET! He's like the nicest guy in the world, and he totally didn't hold it against me for running him down like a freight train on Wednesday, OR for looking like a drowned raccoon when I did it.
I told him that a friend of mine had died, which was sort of true. I mean, yeah, Randall might not have really existed, but he did to me. And now he's gone, and won't ever come back. So yeah, my friend died.
Anyway, back to Mark. He said he was sorry about my friend and that he wished he could cheer me up. He blushed and started to say something, but just then Giles drove up. Mark turned REALLY red and told me he'd see me on Monday but I kind of thought he was going to ask me out.
Even better is the fact that Giles didn't ask me who I was talking to. I mean, yeah, I've learned my lesson about hiding friends from my family, but I'm not ready to tell any of them about Mark yet because I don't really know what's going on there.
