It's a Tuesday, and it's May.
And, of course, it's a school day.
Theo's standing in the courtyard, chatting to a few of his friends, generally enthusiastic about things. The game at the weekend was pretty great, congrats team.
The year seems to be progressing fine. He's pretty confident he's done well in his exams, and he's looking forward to the upcoming summer.
Theo's friend Matt seems to be holding his attention pretty well. Really rather well. Theo's smiling at him, maybe his gaze lingers on him a bit longer than would be expected, and maybe he laughs a bit more than usual at his jokes. It seems he might have a crush. Aww.
He starts to look a bit confused.
And then he drops.
