Jared's, arguably, had not a great day.
He's pretty sure he failed a math test, his father wouldn't let him borrow the jag, and the black eye that he got for mouthing off to one of the band kids is threatening to swell shut.
But none of that is going to deter him from going to watch one of Peter's football practices.
Peter's practice is more than half over by the time Jared gets there (sometimes Jared hates that Peter lives in the valley).
He leans against the chain link fence surrounding the field, searching for Peter in a sea of jocks, until he finally spots him doing throwing drills,
then he moves to the bleachers closest to where Peter is. The coach is giving him the side eye, but they'd come to an understanding last year.
Jared would neither bother Peter during practice or report on their plays to his football team, like that idea had ever even crossed Jared's mind, so he tries not to draw attention to himself.
He just sinks down onto a bleacher (wishing his eye didn't hurt as much as it did) and watches Peter gracefully toss the ball halfway down the field.
