*David sits at the lunch table, sticking out his tongue. There’s food all over it.*
David: So thatsh what makesh the “seafood” joke sho FUNNY!
*Abbey sticks his tongue out in disgust.*
Abbey: More like revolting.
*Paulo and Daisy sit together opposite the boys. Daisy, looking pensive, drinks her juice box.*
David: No, no, the REVOLTING part ISH the funny part!
Abbey: Can you swallow, please?
*Abbey looks at Daisy from across the table, concerned.*
Abbey: Is something the matter, Daisy?
*Daisy smiles nervously.*
Daisy: Ahh.. I’m fine, Abbey..
*She looks to the side, hesitant.*
Daisy: Just been feeling a little weird.
Abbey: Why so?
Daisy: It’s nothing serious..
Daisy: .. Paulo?
*Paulo glances at her.*
Paulo: Eh? Yeah?
*Daisy looks away nervously.*
Daisy: You’re a better judge for what guys look for in girls.. Do you think I..
*Paulo blushes suddenly, his attention grabbed by something else.*
*Tess walks toward them.*
*Paulo jumps up and waves. His eyes light up and he grins.*
Paulo: ♥ Tess! Babe! Over here! C’monn~ ♥
*Daisy looks sullen. She imagines herself standing next to Tess with a slashed equal sign between them. Tess is doing a sexy pose and surrounded by hearts, while Daisy looks awkward.*
Tess: Someone’s happy to see me!
*Daisy shuts her eyes and frowns.*
Daisy (thinking): Ugh, I’ll never be that pretty! Why would a boy tease me like that..
Augustus: So we share the same lunch period, do we?
*Daisy’s eyes pop open and she blushes.*
*Augustus stands beside Daisy.*
Augustus: Mind if I sit beside you?
*Daisy looks uncomfortable.*
*Tess glares at Augustus.*
*Paulo looks at Tess, confused.*
*Daisy hunches over timidly.*
Daisy: What do you want to sit here for..?
Augustus: To spend some time with a girl I like, of course..
Daisy: .. Did you really mean what you said before?
*Augustus looks at her with a soft expression.*
Augustus: Oh, Daisy..
Augustus: Is this the first time ANYONE’S told you you’re beautiful?
*Daisy blushes and looks away, smiling and twirling her hair.*
Augustus: Of course I meant it.
Daisy: Um, t-thank you..
*Lucy sips her drink.*
*Someone splashes water onto Lucy’s face. Lucy winces and looks over.*
*Katie points to a bottle of water, looking curious.*
Katie: So does bottled water, like, do it too?
Lucy: Go back to your table!
*Augustus watches, unconcerned.*
