The boy in the funky shirt was cute, but also out of his league. Max would have liked to talk to him anyway, but he seemed busy and didn’t look like he’d take kindly to being interrupted.
He’d seen him in the club room often enough, and always, he was occupied with his music or with a book, and never talked to anyone. Max thought it was kind of lonely.
The boy looked up suddenly, and Max was caught staring.
The boy raised a single eyebrow.
Max smiled and hesitantly raised a hand. Hi, he signed, waiting with bated breath to see how the boy would respond.
Hello, the boy signed back, a tentative smile blooming on his lips. Want to talk?
Max practically skipped over.
