Saturday, October 23rd- The country club is hosting a farewell dinner to celebrate our trip stateside. The theme, Americano of course. That means red, white and blue only. 

"Hey Caro!", Sloane greeted me. 
"Red, blue... where's the white?", Pippa asked. I laughed and lifted my skirt a bit. The girls broke into laughter.
"Where's Matt?", Lottie wanted to know. She grinned, but there was something in her eyes...
"He didn't have time...", I answered.
"The last evening before we fly to America? What a shame." I didn't say anything.
"But I could find a table neighbour fo you, though", Sloane cheered me up. I sat next to Nate. 
"Hello!", I wanted to hug him, but he pulled away and just nodded towards me. 
"Hey, is something wrong, Nate?"
"Something?", he mumbled, but he didn't look at me.
It went on like that for nearly the whole dinner. We didn't talk much and I felt guilty though I didn't know why...
 "Nate? What's with you? Do you have any problems?" 
He sighed, but then he answered: "Yes, I have girl problems."
"Maybe I can help you. I mean, I am a girl", I tried to cheer him up.
"Uhm... she doesn't notice me, not really I mean. And she's got a boyfriend already.", he looked at me like he was searching for something.
"Oh shit. If she's got a boyfriend, then I wouldn't try anything. Just be there for her and be her friend", I smiled. 
"I'll be", Nate responded seriously. Then he took my hand and played with my fingers. Suddenly, he dropped it like a hot potatoe.
"What was that?", I asked.
"Uh, I think it was an electric hit, yeah, it felt like that", Nate mumbled. "How are you, Caro?"
"I'm so excited for the trip to America! But I miss Matt today, he is too busy to come."
"So you have to talk to me...", Nate said.
"No! I didn't mean it like that, Nate!"
"I know", he smiled. We went on talking about the trip. Talktalktalk... it felt like I knew him for years. We loved the same things, but when it came to themes where we had different opinions, we argued like crazy.
"You're fun, Caro", Nate laughed when we went bak to school. 
"I'm freezing", I said. I only wore a top.
"Wait, here's my jacket", Nate took it off and handed it over to me. 
"Sleep well", Nate said when we reached my building. Then he hugged me. 
"Mhm, warm", I mumbled and pulled myself closer to him. 
"I...I have to go now", he stuttered and hurried away. I was a bit confused about that when I arrived in my room. Then I noticed that I wore Nate's jacket. I'll give it to him tomorrow, I swore before I fell asleep.
