((Conrad Timothy Harrod continued from Night Shift))

Conrad looked on the screen of his cellphone, when he heard an awkward conversation coming up. He looked around and saw Jeremy on the grass, while Ty looked into Jeremy's book. If Jeremy actually stood, Ty might've not been able to do that.

It was odd to know that Jeremy was taller than Conrad and Ty was shorter than him and yet Ty was more...well, he had history. Anyway, it looked like nothing good would come out of this. Conrad knew that they weren't best friends. Jeremy, a class clown, was reading a book, while Ty, a bully, was starting an awkward conversation with him.

Conrad wouldn't have thought Jeremy to read much. Reading was one of the most boring things you could do in your freetime. And the book he read didn't seem like a school book, so he was indeed reading it just for fun. Yet, Jeremy didn't seem like a boring person. Never judge a book by its cover.

While sitting on a bench he eyed the two of them and quickly looked back to his phone. He promised his parents to drive Henry home, so he had to wait. Flappy Bird's a way more interesting way to wait than reading a book. He had read enough today in school.

John Green? Poor guy, that sounds like the most boring and unrecognisable name. Like Jack Black or Jeff Smith. Okay, Conrad actually knew the actor Jack Black. Maybe not Jack Black as a "unrecognisable name", rather a Jack White.

Actually, he'd heard of John Green as well. That guy was mentalfloss, right? Nah, there were probably dozens of John Greens and Jack Blacks and Jeff Smithes.

Conrad's name was okay. It was kinda special. Not something like Alex. Geez, how many Alexes does he know? One, two, three, four...

Whatever, he wanted to know why Jeremy was reading a book called "Paper Town". Sounds like a children's book. What was the plot? Was the book well written or is it just garbage? Why is it pretty good so far, Jeremy?

He turned to Jeremy and Ty in the grass.

"Hey, guys. I think I've heard of Paper Town", a lie, "a friend told me it's a good one."

Conrad raised an eyebrow.

"What is it about?"

He stopped playing Flappy Bird. He couldn't play and talk at the same time, after all. Well, he could, but he would fail then.

Wow, that was annoying. Paper Towns. Really, who cares? Conrad got it. It's like Game of Thrones or Games of Throne. It didn't matter.

He got the right name of the book, but not the plot. It didn't seem very interesting. Like, what.

Conrad hummed.

"Ah, cool. That sounds interesting. It's a thriller, right?"

Oh, of course. Discovering a corpse, how romantic. Conrad grinned at the statement that it was not a thriller. Jeremy was a class clown. Maybe he meant it ironically. Or not. It doesn't matter, Conrad grinned.

"Oh, sorry. It is a romance, of course. Sorry."

And then Jeremy said that the protagonist was creepy. Oh, who doesn't find creepy protagonists romantic? It's definitely not a thriller, nono.

Now that Conrad thought about it, the creepiness of the protagonist actually made him believe that it was in fact a romance. After all, the main characters of many romance were creepy. Stuff like 50 Shades of Grey or Twilight and other stuff noone would ever want to read. Except maybe Jeremy.

"Do you like romance novels in general?"

He looked at Jeremy. The question was asked in a calm way, without a mocking expression. After all, he asked due to his curiousity.

As Jeremy went away, Conrad waved at him. Soon after, Henry finally came, the two of them drove home. Not before Conrad said a "See ya!" at Ty, of course.
