Florian watched the shifting shadows of the leaves throw dappled patterns on the wall above the stairs. “I never realized just how beautiful this is.”
Sarah chuffed through her nose. “That’s the mushrooms talking.”
“I like trees,” Florian announced.
“Yeah trees are awesome. They make like a thousand bajillion leaves to soak in sunlight and through these small leaves they grow super tall and strong. Trees should be worshipped,” Sarah says.
“The trees and the sun.”
“Maybe we should condense that and worship photosynthesis.”
Sarah giggled. “Except I don’t think most people can spell that.”
“If kids can spell Mississippi, they can spell photosynthesis.”
“That’s not the same!” she insisted.
“Totes the same.”
“Uh huh, sure.”

They fell into a quiet lull as they watched the shadows dance over the flickering gold of late afternoon sunlight on the wall of the ceiling and the drop wall under the floor above them.

“Yeah Flo?”
“I think I like a boy in my class.”
Sarah turned her head. “Ow…” She took off her hoodie and propped it under her skull. “Which boy?”
“Are you mad?”
“Why would I be mad?”
Florian licked his lips. “I heard you tell someone on the phone that I’m your boyfriend.”
Sarah covered her face with her hands and groaned. “Oh fuck you heard that? I told Courtney that because she’s always riding me if we’re going out. I thought it’d get her off my back.”
“Oh.” He exhaled.
“It’s ok, Flo. I’m kind of glad. Cause now we can be friends and it won’t be awkward.”
He smiled. “Yeah?”
“Yeah. And now we can go meet boys together.”
“Whoa, I didn’t even think about that.”
“Cool huh?”
“Yeah,” Florian said. “That is cool. You want to go outside and lie under the tree?”
“Yeah let’s do that. These stairs are hard.”
“By the way, you think you can tell me how to ask a boy out?”
Sarah snorted. “Flo, I don’t even know. But I can give you some pointers.”
