Carlie1SC: hey there, who's this?
RBStoryteller: It's Roderick Butler from Redgrove
Carlie1SC: oh hey! i didn't think i was going to hear from you :D
RBStoryteller: Yeah, I guess I was a little late getting in touch.
Carlie1SC: not at all! i'm sure you have to fight allie for your time on here.
Carlie1SC: so what's up? your long weekend okay?
RBStoryteller: My mother took some time off, so I spent some time with her.
Carlie1SC: you know, i don't know anything about your mom. allie never talks about her.
Carlie1SC: all allie ever does is complain about you :)
RBStoryteller: It's still kind of difficult around here, I guess.
RBStoryteller: Actually, I got called into the principal's office today.
Carlie1SC: for real? now what could you have done?
RBStoryteller: They were worried because of one of my assignments. Something I wrote
Carlie1SC: oh, i see. so you got the "we're concerned" thing, right?
Carlie1SC: same here. some people were spreading rumors about me and they decided to believe them
Carlie1SC: the kids here are assholes but the adults are just dumb
RBStoryteller: Yeah, I tend to agree.
Carlie1SC: we have classes together, we should talk about these kinds of things
RBStoryteller: I'm sorry about that.
Carlie1SC: sorry for what? because you don't chat in class? it's okay.
RBStoryteller: I guess I'm just trying to pay attention.
RBStoryteller: People think I'm good at everything, but I'm not great with languages.
Carlie1SC: hey, french is my best subject!
Carlie1SC: i can help you practice, and you can help me with the rest. fair?
RBStoryteller: Yeah, that's fair.
RBStoryteller: Really, I was going to ask if you could show me where you house is tomorrow?
Carlie1SC: so you can drop on by? ;)
RBStoryteller: It's just that I don't know exactly where you live.
Carlie1SC: no need to be shy, i offered right?
Carlie1SC: just find me after school. you know where my locker is, i'm close to allie.
Carlie1SC: after this, you don't need to ask. come on by any day, you're always welcome :)
Carlie1SC: it's my pleasure, roderick ;)
