((Brendan Harte: Pregame Start))

Brendan was having a jog around the park by himself today as his father was still at work and he was in a very cheerful mood right now. He was concentrating on his breaths that he was taking and he was enjoying the rush that was going through his body. He couldn't believe how quiet it was today. Honestly, he wished that he had brought a book with him to read. It was just so peaceful. He wouldn't wait to tell his father about his day. Oh, he suddenly remember that he had some homework to take care of as well. He made a mental note in his head to remember to do that.

"Man, it sure is a beautiful day, huh?" He smiled to himself as he was panting softly and he stopped in his tracks for a moment to wipe away the sweat from his forehead. "Okay, I should continue to jog for a little while longer and then-"

He stopped talking to himself when he heard someone dropping something and he heard a female voice swearing that made him cringe a little. He turned to see who it was and he saw that it was someone from his school. What was her name again? Jane.... Jane something. He didn't know her that well as he was still struggling to make friends and he wasn't sure what to do. It looked like she dropped one of her grocery bags and now she was picking up the food that she had dropped.

Brendan tapped his toe for a few seconds and then he decided that he should try to help her out. He should be a gentleman to her. He put a kind smile on his face and he started to jog over to Jane slowly as he didn't want to trip over her by mistake.

"Hey there. Uh, Jane..... Would you like a hand with that?"

Brendan noticed that Jane's voice sounded like she was upset about something and well, he wouldn't blame her as she had dropped her food on the ground. When she was looking at him with a slight annoyed expression on her face, he realized that he would get down on his knees and help her out. After all, that was what he had wanted to do in the first place.

"O-Oh, right. Sorry, I should be helping you. I'm s-sorry." He was stuttering nervously as he got down to his knees and he started to pick up some cans, feeling very embarrassed about the way he was talking to her. "Uh, so it sure is peaceful and quiet around here today, huh?"

Brendan really wished that he wasn't so shy at his age and he wanted to be more confident when he was talking to other people. He was trying to start a conversation and he normally doesn't due to his quiet and shy nature. Oh, he realized that Jane might not even know who he is. Maybe he should tell here his name first. Yeah, that sounded like a good idea.

"Oh, I'm Brendan Harte by the way. If you wanted to know that, Jane. I mean, I don't know what to say right now....." He mumbled softly as he was fiddling with one of the cans in his arms and he let out a small chuckle. "I'm just really bad at talking to people."

Brendan was surprised that this girl wasn't lashing out at him for what had happened and she seemed to be very comfortable with talking with him. He scratched his nose and he cleared his throat a little. Oh? She wanted to know why he was here. He was happy that she was asking and he couldn't wait to tell his father that he was talking to a different girl other than Bernadette. Maybe he could become friends with Jane. Well, he was hoping that he could.

He could see that Jane was staring at him now and it was making him feel worse. He felt like he should hurry up and answer her question. He didn't want her to think that he was a weird person or anything like that. He was going to try to answer her question without stuttering or mumbling quietly.

"Oh, yes. I was going for a jog around here. I always go out for a jog everyday. I like to keep fit, you know? I am on the track team after all. I like to be the best." He sounded a little too proud and he was hoping that it wasn't too much for Jane. He didn't want to sound too arrogant about one of his favourite things. "I'm sorry if I sound too proud about it. I'm more crazy about swimming."

He scratched his bent nose again and he glanced down at Jane with a small smile. He suddenly felt the urge to flee as he felt that he was embarrassing himself more in front of her and he was telling himself in his mind to stay calm and focus on Jane to see how she would react. Jane.... Oh! Jane Madison! That's her name! He suddenly remembered.

"Oh..... You're Jane Madison, right? Uh..... You do acting or something in school, right?"

Ah. Brendan nodded to himself. So he was right about Jane doing theater things. Oh? She did backstage stuff. Wow. That was amazing to him. Her laugh was kind of cute too. Maybe they could become good friends. Jane seemed to be a very nice person to him. He was surprised that she was actually talking to him and he was wondering what else she would be interested in. Maybe he could ask to her to hang out with him at-

Brendan's train of thought was suddenly interrupted by someone approaching him. Oh, it was another girl. She seemed to know Jane by the way she was talking to her. This girl sounded a bit too..... loud for his taste. And he was thinking that it was a bit rude of her to barge into his and Jane's conversation. But he wasn't going to say anything about it.

When Jane introduced him to the girl, he felt himself feeling hesitant to say anything for a few seconds and he forced himself to show the girl a kind smile. "Oh, yeah. I just wanted to help Jane out. I couldn't just leave without being helpful." He glanced at Jane awkwardly and then he looked back at the girl. He suddenly changed his mind about not saying anything about her rudely interrupting his conversation with Jane. "I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but you did kind of butt into our conversation, um...."

Brendan blinked a little when he looked at the girl more closely and he cursed under his breath when he realized who he was talking to. Caedyn Miller..... He didn't know her that well but he had heard that she was trouble. He was now hoping that he had not ticked Caedyn off. He really didn't want to get into an argument right now. Especially not in front of Jane.

Brendan frowned a little. Lovebirds? Was Caedyn being serious about him and Jane? They both barely even knew each other. And Caedyn calling Jane a little person was very disrespectful. Caedyn was really was one of those people that he would definitely want to avoid. He shook his head and he let out a sigh of disbelief. He was feeling very embarrassed now and he just wanted to run back home and hide himself in his room. He didn't even want a romantic relationship with Jane. He just wanted to be friends with Jane and that was it.

Just as he was about to tell Caedyn that he wasn't romantically interested in Jane; he was surprised when Jane stood up to Caedyn and she seemed to be very upset by what Caedyn had said. He honestly couldn't blame her for losing her temper. It seemed like Caedyn was trying to get under Jane's skin and that is something that a bully would do. Brendan felt himself frown a little bit more as he really didn't like bullies at all. The first time he finally stood up to a bully, the guy broke his nose and got away with it. Since that he had been too much of a coward to stand up to any bullies at all and he would try to stay out of their way.

He watched as Jane moved beside him and he tried to show her a comforting smile. He really didn't like to see others teased like this. Okay. He was going to try to calmly talk to Caedyn about how much of an annoyance that she was and that he wanted her to leave him and Jane alone. He had to try to come out of his shy nature and finally speak up for once.

Brendan glanced back at Caedyn with a cool smile on his face and he cleared his throat, feeling a bit nervous. "Look, Caedyn, you obviously have the wrong idea about me and Jane. We barely even know each other and you can't just randomly think that we are in a relationship together. Honestly, I think of Jane as a friend and I don't like it when a bully like you tease my friend like that." He was talking in a very bitter tone and he honestly didn't care if Caedyn was going to get mad at him. "I would really like it if you would leave us alone right now as we didn't want you to talk to us in the first place. Or we can just leave you here on your own, Caedyn. Right, Jane? I could help you carry your bags if you want."

Wow. He had done it. He had finally stood up to a bully again. He felt a little guilty for being mean to Caedyn but he felt like it was worth it for Jane's sake. He couldn't help but smirk slightly, feeling satisfied with himself. The shy kid wasn't cowering this time.

All Brendan could think was poor Jane as he watched her walk away from him in an upset state and he couldn't even say anything to cheer her up. He sighed softly and he felt frustrated with himself for possibly making the situation worse for Jane. Caedyn was really a horrible person and he hoped that he wouldn't walk into her again. He really didn't want anything to do with that horrid girl. Ugh, what a crappy day.

He glanced upwards at the sky and he shook his head a little. Well, he hoped that Jane was going to be alright. Maybe he could check on her at school some time and ask her if she wanted to hang out with him. He didn't know if he had the courage to talk to her again or not. Caedyn had ruined the mood between him and Jane.

He wiped his brow and he started to jog again to get back home. He suddenly had some ideas for a new story. He was going to vent his feelings into that story when he got back home to help him feel better himself.
