When I see Peter at the bus the next morning, he’s standing around with all this lacrosse friends, and at first I feel shy and nervous, but then he sees me, and his face breaks into a grin. C’mere, Covey, he says, so I go to him and he throws my tote over his shoulder. In my ear he says, You’re sitting with me, right?I nod.As we make our way onto the bus, somebody wolf whistles. It seems like people are staring at us, and at first I think it’s just my imagination, but then I see Genevieve look right at me and whisper to Emily Nussbaum. It sends a chill down my spine.Genevieve keeps staring at me, I whisper to Peter.It’s because you’re so adorably quirky, he says, and he rests his hands on my shoulders and gives me a kiss on the cheek, and I forget all about Genevieve.
