Gossip

W: Yo, how's it going?

M: Still not done with that term paper yet.

W: No, not that. I mean how did it go between you and Makino the other day?

M: What? What do you mean?

W: I saw you two walking your bikes together last night. You were both talking in hushed voices.

M: When was that? Like, on the way home by the pond?

W: Yep! You guys never even spoke in class, then suddenly I'd see you like that. Got me thinking all sorts of things!

M: Things like what?!

W: Oh, you know: My little fantasy, where you guys are secretly a couple, because you don't want other people to gossip behind your backs.

M: But…

W: Hold it! Now that we're on this topic, I need to ask you if you like Makino! I've been shipping you for the past couple of weeks now, just so you know. But I'm not going to tell you more than that. You gotta tell me, right now!

M: OK, OK. Calm down. This is a bit too creepy for me to absorb that quickly. (pause) She's good to talk with. That's it.

W: What do you mean "that's it"? What else can you say about her?

M: I… uh….

W: Oh, come on, give me something to work with. What do you think of her looks? Do you like how the moon shined on her face last night? What did you two talk about, anyway? I need answers!

M: Just…..please give me a second. Hey, how did you find us last night?

W: Ah, that. I was…er….on my way home too.

M: With whom? Are you with Taku again?

W: Oh, oh. Look at the time, it flies… so fast. Gotta go and finish my term paper too!
