Chapter 16 The Real Frenchy, Please Stand Up
After school, Frenchy accosted me as I was walking to the car. She asked me if I wanted to go riding with her. I told her I was hungry. She said, “Oh, we can grab a salad. Riding isn’t until 7 p.m.” The last time I rode with her, I was in SH. I was certainly no expert at riding, but why not?
A car ride was never just a car ride with Frenchy.
“How was lunch?”
“The usual. Sushi, lattes, and Merek. We missed you,” I said.
“I left fifth period. I hit Cara up to let me back in eighth period. Kim and Sinha don’t even take attendance. I really like Michael.” Who was Michael?
“How long?” She looked at me with an eyebrow raised. “Come on,” I said.
She laughed. “Three weeks, two days, 12 hours,” she said.
“What are the seconds?”
“Milan!” she looked surprised.
“Why not like someone at school and save yourself the hike uptown! This one’s at Columbia, right?”
“Yup!” So were her last three boy toys. I didn’t want to make the distinction, but I believed her father was a Columbia alum. Odd.
“You know, you sound like my Mom.” Did I?
“I’m sorry. I just don’t know about dating a guy and only thinking about next week. What happened to forever?” I said.
“I’m kind of …” She shrugged. “In comparison to Sierra, I’m pretty bad. I know that. And I’m pretty good at it.”
“I see. It’s like that,” I said.
Frenchy smirked. “You wouldn’t know bad if it bit you in the butt.”
“What do you want me to say to that?” I asked.
“Nothing. I like it. My sister … she’s hopeless. She’s just like you. Except Sierra’s got to get a boyfriend sometime this century.”
“You get what you get when you get it. And I think when you get it, it should be close to forever.”
