Chapter 8 Yoda
“Okay, relax, Tina, relax, it’s not a crime.” Tina looks at the school’s bathroom mirror, she says to herself.
“You will be alright, it’s just like normal talking, right, it’s no big deal.”
She inhales and exhale, a little too hard, makes her lungs hurt a bit.
“Bette, I…I…god damn it! Again…Bette, um… I want to tell you something…I, um…shit shit shit!”
This is not what I thought. Tina frustrated scratches her hair.
Tina’s eyes wide open, she quickly turns around and sighs.
“Jesus, Shane, you scared me.”
“Sorry, I couldn’t find you in the classroom, so I came…hey, are you alright, what happened to your hair?”
“I feel like a mess,” Tina says, without stop rubbing her head, she looks into the mirror, scared by her hair, it’s worse than a mess. “Oh…it’s, um…it’s…my new hairstyle?”
“New hairstyle my ass, come here.”
Shane says as Tina walks to her, she starts to help Tina reset her short blonde hair.
“It’s Porter, right?”
Tina turns her head and shots her a how-can-you-read-my-mind look, Shane rolls her eyes and turns Tina’s head back.
“It’s all written on your face, no need to be a Yoda to see it.”
“Fuck…” Tina tries to rub her hair again but Shane subconsciously slaps her hand away. “I’m so screwed right?”
“No, you are not, and don’t ever think yourself that way.”
Tina sighs. “What am I going to do?”
“Be yourself, trust your own feeling, just…don’t do anything stupid that will make you hurt, but…whatever, they’re all too dumb to hurt you.”
Tina chuckles a bit but remains nervous appearance. Shane pats Tina’s shoulder.
“Thank.” Tina says as she looks in the mirror. “Wow, you are really good at this.”
Shane shrugs, she pulls out a cigarette and lights it.
Tina watches Shane close the cigarette box and tugs it into her pocket.
“What if the thing I’m going to do is really stupid?”
“Really? Such as?”
“Something like…no, no, it’s too embarrass and stupid.”
“Tina, my lips are sealed, you can trust me.”
Tina bits her lower lip, she looks at Shane’s sincere eyes, sighs.
That’s true, among all her friends, Tina trusts this brunette the most. She minds her own business, never pry unless she thinks it’s really important, Shane’s instinct never went wrong before, even this time.
