Summer vacation had ended, and it was time for Jane and Paula to start school again. Since January, the two of them had become best friends. They enjoyed spending time together. They were also willing to help each other. This time, Paula would soon help Jane with a big challenge. As the two girls made it to their school, they went to the corner to wait for the bell to ring. Like most teenage girls, they were beginning to notice boys. The two friends watched some boys a few feet away. One of them noticed Jane. Paula said, "What do you know? One of them likes you, Jane." Jane said, "I think you're right, Paula." Paula looked at her watch and said, "There's fifteen minutes until the bell rings. You have time to get acquainted with him." Jane walked up to the boy and said, "Hi." He smiled and said, "Hi. My name's Kyle. What's yours?" She said, "Jane." He said, "It's nice to meet you, Jane." She said, "It's nice to meet you, too, Kyle." The two talked before the bell rang. Jane learned that she and Kyle had their first class together. Later, when it was lunch time, Jane told Paula, "I think Kyle and I have hit it off." Paula said, "I'm so happy for you, Jane!" Jane said, "Of course, I want to take some time to get to know him. I'm confident that we'll start dating soon." Things seemed to be looking up for Jane. However, she had no idea that she was about to get her heart broken.
