So I totally messed up. Claire has been moping around for days because of this Jared/Molly thing so I decided to try to fix things for her. My whole motivation was to help her. Really. But it didn’t work out that way. I got to school before Claire did on Friday and saw Jared by himself at his locker. It was the perfect time to talk to him. This was our conversation:
Me: Hey, Jared.
J (looking confused): Hi.
Me: I’m Abby. A friend of Claire’s.
J (still looking confused): Okay.
Me: Well, I know you’re going out with Molly, but I thought you should know that there’s someone else who likes you. She’s really cool.
Me: It’s Claire.
J: Who’s Claire?
I would like to say at this point I knew this had not been a good idea, but it was a little late to back out now.
Me: Claire. The girl who always passes notes to you from Molly in science class.
J: Oh her.
Me: Okay, well now you know. She really is a cool person.
J: Good to know.
And he walked away.
By lunch time, the whole school knew that Claire had a crush on Jared and let’s just say Claire was NOT happy. Not happy at all. I feel terrible that I messed this up. I was just completely positive that Jared would be interested in her over Molly. Who wouldn’t be? I guess the one good thing that’s come out of this is that Claire isn’t moping anymore. She’s just incredibly mad. At me.
