Barry had completed the homework assigned that morning while ‘lunching’ in the library. He would only have the afternoon courses homework to complete when he left school.
With a few minutes to spare, he went to the bathroom, washed his face, used a bit of cream to prevent acne, brushed his teeth, then the tiniest daub of cologne and was ready for his afternoon classes.
Although he wanted to dive into the social world, he would take his time. No sense in pushing into some hang out or standing around waiting for someone to talk to him.
It would come.
