Yeah, I'm fine.
I mean, as okay as I can be taking out the garbage.
I know that you're not crazy about having me for a lab partner.
It's okay. I'm cool with that.
Really? You wouldn't switch if you could?
You have to be careful with who you get close to.
I know people think I'm some kind of freak.
I can't do anything about that.
But it's got to bother you,
idiots running around,
putting shaving cream in your locker,
laughing at you, making stuff up about who you are.
I didn't say that it doesn't get to me,
It's just that there's nothing I can do about it.
Like you said, they're idiots.
You notice how much you and I
keep saying we're sorry to each other?
Sorry. Do you see what I mean?
That other day in chemistry...
There was something in my book.
Did you see them?
Before I closed my book,
did you see what they were?
I don't think you wanted anybody to see them.
I'm cool with that.
Do you still swim?
Yes, I do.
Do you do it because people are watching you,
or because you like to swim?
do it because I love the way it makes me feel.
Then forget about the idiots.
They're going to see what they want to see.
Even if you completely changed everything,
they wouldn't be happy.
They don't want you to change.
They want you to go away.
I tried that. I didn't like it.
Now you're back.
Yeah. I am.
See you tomorrow?
