This is later in the same lunch period we visited last week. (If you missed it, it’s right here.)
The incident inspiring Psyche’s chocolate-cake lunch last week was a locker-defacing (someone scrawled on hers with a Sharpie). Cam is another of the friends Psyche didn’t share her cake with and she has more than one good reason to want him to stay out of it.
Psyche reached out to pull the door open and Cam was right there, at her side, opening it for her. It caught her by surprise and she smiled at him. Cam’s freckled face turned into a mask of longing for one short moment. She watched his game face replace it and felt only relief.
“If anyone’s bothering you, you can tell me.”
Psyche shook her head and went inside, ducking into the nearest washroom. She fought the urge to kick the overflowing trashcan just inside the door. Until she was halfway out, then she took a step backward and kicked it hard creating a neat, satisfying dent.
