"Dan Huo? Wait, isn't that the kid whose dad is in the real estate business?" Mike asked. Even though Dan Huo wasn't his classmate, Mike knew him. He had heard that Dan Huo was bossy.

"Yes, his dad is," answered Jason, adding,"When I saw them chatting, Rebecca looked uneasy."

Lawrence stayed silent throughout their conversation. He hadn't heard any rumors about the event or about Dan Huo.

"Actually Lawrence..." Ben started nervously and abruptly stopped to compose himself before he continued in an even tone,"When we started our first year of middle school, a friend told me Dan was pursuing Rebecca, but she rejected him. No one brings it up. You didn't meet or even talk to Rebecca until third year, so, I guess you don't know much about her life before then, do you?"

All the boys, including Mike, fell into silence. Mike sat very still, lost into speculation, 'I know everything there is to know about Lawrence. Since we've attended middle school, he's gotten love letters daily. He never read any of those letters or talked to the girls in the class. In the third year, while he was on duty though, he accidentally got Rebecca's white sneakers dirty. They started talking then and became friends. Since they've been friends for a long time, Lawrence should know something. Except he didn't know about Rebecca's past.'

"What else do you know about her past?" Lawrence asked abruptly.

The other three boys stared at one another, not sure how to start.

"If you consider me your friend, tell me everything you know!" ordered Lawrence while he reasoned silently, 'It doesn't matter what else they tell me. I'm already pretty pissed off.'

Mike knew he had to tell Lawrence what he learned about Rebecca. But, he wanted the others to talk first.

"Okay, tell what you know," Mike told the other boys.

"Well, I heard when Rebecca was a freshman she spent a lot of time with a boy that was in his second year. She would go over to his place

n the empty court.

Things were quiet in the park at night. Mike looked over at Lawrence sitting silently with a troubled expression, but he wasn't sure how to comfort his friend.

"Lawrence, you shouldn't take what they said too seriously. After all, you..." before Mike could finish, Lawrence cut him off.

"Mike, I want you to answer one question for me," Lawrence asserted.

"Okay, what?" Mike asked.

"Did you tell Rebecca about my parents' trip to Hong Kong?" asked Lawrence.

"No, I didn't tell her," replied Mike as he shook his head. "I know you don't want other people knowing your personal affairs, so I didn't tell anyone about it."

He added,"Even though you two are together a lot, and I poke fun of you two, your relationship isn't intimate enough for me to be able to tell her your private matters. You haven't even told anyone that she's your girlfriend."

Lawrence remained silent for a few minutes, then he got up, grabbed his backpack and as he headed home he called over his shoulder to Mike,"Bye!"

"Hey wait, you're leaving now?" asked Mike as he sat there dumbfounded staring at Lawrence's back. 'He is such an efficient person, ' he mused.

It wasn't long before Lawrence was home. When he went into the living room, he saw Violet Chu watching a cartoon with Lily.
