Today, he high fived me, wearing the flannel he wore the other night. My friend sent me a text in my next class.

Now sorry to spoil it for you, I may not know what the future holds, but there is not going to be any sex, drugs or rock and roll in this story. Well maybe a bit of rock n roll.

Who knows what the night will consist of, will something further our relationship, or will our friendship become stronger?
