Mariah has been Vanessa’s BFF since the beginning of the school year. But today, for some reason, Mariah is acting weird. Avoiding her. Vanessa texts five times between classes and gets nothing back. After school she sees Mariah driving off with some guy she’s never seen before. An older guy.
Vanessa feels really hurt that her friend would not even tell her what’s up. She actually ends up crying as she walks the last block home. When her little brother Isaiah tries to get her to play Pokémon Go, she just shuts the door in his face.
Watching her from his window, Antonio can tell that something is really wrong with his down-the-street neighbor. Usually she comes home laughing and screaming with her friend Mariah. Antonio is dying to ask what’s wrong, but he knows it’s not plausible. Vanessa hardly knows he’s alive. To her, he’s just a skinny 7th-grader who belongs to Robotics Club … a boring geek.
Still, Antonio can’t stop thinking about Vanessa. There are prettier girls, but Vanessa is different. Smart. Maybe he should come up with an excuse to go knock on the door – just to make sure nothing terrible has happened.
