4. Small Conversations.
Max was silent when we left the gym building. I was trying to be silent too. I didn't
want to be the one that broke the silence. But I really didn't like being quiet. So I
glanced over at him. He was walking with his hands tightly in his pockets. I blinked
and started talking to him.
"That was quite funny wasn't it?" I laughed.
He looked up. "Yeah. It was kinda." He smiled, his teeth perfectly white.
"Again, I'm sorry. I totally didn't mean it." I insisted.
"Carmen. I told you before. Its okay. I'm fine. As long as your okay." He said.
I smiled and blushed. "Well I'm okay. I was laughing wasn't I?" I said.
He laughed. "Your always falling Carmen..." He said.
I nodded. "Yup. I'm so clumsy." I said.
He opened the door for me. "We'd better go to the nurse just incase. I don't want
Miss Dimsay asking us for Medical Room Slips tomorrow." He said, while letting me
"Yeah." I said, going into the Medical Room.
Max and I stood at the Nurses desk. A pale, fragile woman looked up at us and smiled
softly. "Whats happened?" She asked quietly.
Max took the liberty of speaking. "Carmen tripped in gym. She fell onto me and we
skidded across the floor." He said in amusement.
"Are you hurt?" The old woman asked me.
I shook my head. "But Miss Dimsay insisted that we came to see you." I said quickly.
"Right." The woman replied understandinly.
I looked at Max and raised one eyebrow. "Your okay but?" I asked him again.
He sighed. "I'm fine! For the last time! Next time I'm ignoring you." He said.
I sighed too. "Fine..."
The nurse wrote two slips for us. "I understand completely." She said, and at that
moment, the school bell rang for our break period.
We took the slips and left the room. I looked at Max and went to ask him again. But
he raised his hand. "Dont." He said shortly.
He opened the door again for me and we went out into the playground.
I spotted Jess and Lily. They were talking to Amy. I smiled at Max and then left
him. I felt his eyes on my back as I walked away. Amy, Lily and Jess stared at me. I
smiled at them.
"Hi!" I said as I got nearer to them.
"Hello." Lily said happily.
"Carmen your okay aren't you?" Amy asked. "Jess told me." She said.
"I'm fine." I said.
"Oh I got to go!" Jess said. "I need to hand in my maths homework." She said. Then
she ran off.
"Bye." I said, then turned back to Amy. "I'm fine." I said again.
"What about Max?" Lily asked.
I nodded. "He's fine too." I said, smiling.
Amy giggled. "That was weird how it was Max that you bumped into wasn't it?" She
I narrowed my eyes. "It was an accident." I said sharply.
"Sure." Lily said. Then the bell rang for our next class.
We parted for our classes for the rest of the day until lunch.
