Chapter 2

Days passed without sign of Jack, and Sera forgot about him. Out of the blue, he showed up at lunch again one day. Before either girl could say anything, he said, “So I thought about it and figured maybe you don’t like ice cream. So maybe you like frozen yogurt instead? It’s less fattening anyway.”
