Keefe leaned against his locker, his hands shuffling through a box of prattles, his eyes scanning the crowd for a certain familiar face. His hands were the first to find something.
Sitting in the palm of his hand was a moonlark prattles pin. Keefe smiled to himself and stuffed it into his uniforms pocket.
"Hey, Keefe." A crisp voice said from behind him. Keefe startled, but easily recovered. Before turning though, he made sure that his face wouldn't give away anything.
Keefe turned with a smirk to Fitz and tossed the box of prattles to him. Fitz caught the box and gave a short smile to his best friend.
"Don't tell me the great Fitzer is feeling down!" Keefe joked and put a hand around Fitz's shoulder. Fitz pulled away.
"Hey come on man, you cant hide anything from an Empath!"
Fitz groaned and muttered something. "It's Biana."
"Aw, Fitzipoo is having some family troubles!"
Fitz elbowed Keefe. Keefe grinned and clutched his stomach.
"You should be a little more grateful! After all- we all know you would be lost without me," Keefe smirked.
"Oh I wouldn't say THAT, I think my life would actually be a lot less stressful without you," Fitz responded.
"You say that now, but I know how you really feel about me."
Fitz rolled his eyes.
Then he spotted something that immediately made him regain posture and put on a smile. Keefe didn't have to guess what it was, because a second later Sophie came through the crowd.
Right on cue, Keefe's heart skipped a beat, but he pretended not to notice.
Fitz jogged over to her and Keefe also couldn't miss the quick blush on her cheeks. He suddenly felt real crummy inside, but again ignored the feeling and followed Fitz over.
Fitz was already deep in some sort of conversation with her about Telepathy, but Sophie stopped talking for a minute to say hi to Keefe. He grinned and pulled the moonlark out of his pocket.
"Just for you Foster. Aw, look at that she feels special now! That just makes my day." Sophie blushed but couldn't hide the smile from him.
Well- maybe his day wasn't going to be so bad after all.
