Molly snorted. “I never said it would make you more popular, what I said was that I could help you be more normal.” She waved her hands in the air as if needing their help to explain her point. “I can’t make people like you Lucas, though I can’t see any reason why they wouldn’t once they get to know you. Under all that moodiness and stuff I mean.”
She laughed again. “Don’t take everything so personally,” she said.
“I’m sorry but you have spent the entire conversation insulting me and I’m not supposed to take it personally?” she really did take the biscuit, he thought.
“Exactly! It’s just a seeing thing, a whatdoyoumacaall it, a thingy…”
Lucas thought hard. The conversation was going off track and he was losing the thread rapidly.
“When you watch something and you see it!” she was getting annoyed with herself that she couldn’t remember the word.
“An observation?” he supplied.
“That’s it! That’s the thing I meant – an obstication! That’s what it was!” she was almost skipping with excitement now.
“Observation,” he supplied again.
“Whatever,” she waved the word off with her hands. “The point is that you have to let them get to know you before they can like you.”
Molly is turning out to be a more central character than I had anticipated but from the moment she bounced into the story I knew she had some important things to say...I wonder what she will do next?
