Holy smokes! Jace surprised me in the library today. He sat down at my desk and talked to me. Actually talked!
Ever since he sat next to me on the bus the day after his fight with that bully, Randall, he's been all mysterious and distant. I never see him talk to anyone, even in class. But he always seems to be getting into fights. I wonder why.
When we talked, he gave me a bunch of money to research The Evolved, almost as if he had never heard of them before. Who doesn't know about The Evolved? They're all over the news, and it's a pretty common conversation topic for people. Is he that much of a shut-in that he doesn't know what's going on in the world around him? But hey, if he wants to buy me those Opti-monitors I've seen advertised on sale for me, whatever. I'll take his money. It's his fault for not knowing how to do his own research.
