“So, why were you late?” Chase, Brian’s best friend asked. He was eating a second slice of cake.
“Last minute meeting with the debate coach,” Brian said. “He thinks I should put in for a scholarship.”
“Who goes to college on a debate scholarship?” Chase snorted, shaking his head. As a football player, he considered academics as less than worthy pursuits.
“People who are smarter than you,” Jordan snapped, taking his cake away.
“Hey! Jordan! I’m sorry. Can I have my cake back?”
“Just because you’re not smart enough to get a debate scholarship doesn’t mean that they aren’t cool.”
“You’re right. I’m sorry, Brian. I think that would be super cool.”
