"Is your phone dead?"

A girl stood at Jordan's side, her head tilted at one side, causing her side ponytail to lap across her shoulder. Jasmine Reed(otherwise known as Girl 052) did not seem like herself. Her voice was small, hesitant, as if treading carefully. Jazz was usually loud and boisterous. Was something wrong? Who knows. Anybody who knew anything about Jasmine Reed knew she was kind of a weirdo.

Jordan was probably wondering how the hell she knew that his battery was low. Okay, actually, scratch that. Jordan was probably wondering where the hell Jasmine even came from. His picnic table was facing the school, so he would have seen her trundle up, right? It is possible that Jordan was so preoccupied with his phone that he did not notice Jasmine Reed, the hispanic girl with a pink blazer the shade of cotton candy, sneak up beside him. But, like, really? How could he not notice her once he put his phone away?

At least that was Jasmine's logic. Jazz was all gumdrops and rainbows when she was walking up to Jordan, but she didn't say hello right away. She was actually hoping for Jordan to notice her, but no dice. So she was stuck in this awkward rut, hovering close to Jordan's side of the table, her arms laced back and her head canted at an angle like a curious puppy.

It did not matter what she did next. She was going to seem like a massive creeper no matter how much damage control she did.

So she just did what came natural to her: she spouted the first thing that popped into her head. Immediately the girl clamped her mouth shut and shrank back. She turned her head away, eyes staring daggers into the grass beneath her feet.

Gosh. This was awkward.

"Sorry," she muttered quickly, before Jordan could respond, "I couldn't help noticing."

No. Sneaking up on Jordan had not been the plan, actually, but Jazz would have pretended otherwise if it helped her save face. She flashed a dumb grin when Jordan stumbled over her name. She was just glad he remembered her self-given nickname! It felt like so many of her classmates willfully forgot about it. If she was aware of how uncomfortable Jordan was, it did not register on her face. It was also pretty clear that she wasn't going to leave Jordan alone.

"Aww," Jazz said, "That's really lame! I hate it when that happens to me."

Her hands began to pat at the pockets of her skirt, then the pockets of her cardigan. Fishing around, Jazz pulls out a tangled mess of cord and headphones. She fiddles around with the wires in order to free up her cellphone cord. Then she paused. Jazz blinked, then she looked up. Oh. Right. They were outside weren't they? Jazz pouted as she spun the wire back up around her index and middle finger. She had one of those cartoonish frowns, the kind that most people would put on when they were pretending to be upset. Jasmine Reed was not like most people, or at least she tried not to be.

"I'd lend you my wire but, hehe, there's nowhere to plug it in!" Her dimples raised into a sheepy little smile, "Heheh, maybe you could charge it inside?"

She blinked again at the mention of the weather. Jazz looked up and around, eyes darting between the crowds of people off in the distance. Huh. Jasmine's mother always said she had no poise and a terrible sense of her surroundings. She didn't even notice how nice it was outside.

"Wow, you're right," Jazz responded with a nod to herself. "The news said it was gonna be chilly, it's why I brought my - "

Jasmine turned back to face Jordan when she caught sight of a boy with sandy blonde hair and a camera pointed right at them. She froze up, then winced in surprise.

While Jordan was worried about the 'scandalous' pictures on Jordan's camera, all Jazz was thinking about was how she totally should have flashed a peace sign. Jazz really hated hindsight, ugh, why didn't Sandy let her know he was taking a picture?!

"Heeeey Sandy," Jazz said, downtrodden look firmly planted on her face. She canted her head in the other way, eyes glued to the camera in the boy's hands. "... Yeah, sure! I'd love to see it."

Clearly the girl did not see anything wrong with the situation itself. A boy just took a picture of her and another classmate from behind some bushes or some shit and she didn't seem to have much of a problem with that. Jazz just wasn't the type to think too far into things like that. She walked closer, her sneakers making wet squeaks as she moved across the wet grass. Honestly either Sandy was some sort of ninja or Jasmine wasn't paying attention, she should have heard Sandy coming from a mile away.

"New camera?" Jazz said, skeptical. "Doesn't look that 'new'. Looks pretty old if you ask me!"

... Yep. That was certainly a picture, and that was certainly a camera.

Jasmine looked at the camera, then up at Sandy. Then back down at the camera. She was holding off saying anything because she just called Sandy's camera 'old-looking'. She meant '
vintage' or something. It was supposed to be kind of a compliment? And Jasmine wasn't sure whether Sandy was mad or confused. He could be either! So she stood there for a moment, eyes alternating between Sandy and his camera. Her hand nervously rubbed at the opposite arm. Her voice cracked.

"I mean, I d-dunno much about cameras," Jazz said, simply, "but it's not very shiny, and I thought new stuff's supposed to be either shiny or, like, neon I guess. So uhh - "

Jasmine was about to mention how she totally saw a disposable camera being sold in a corner store that looked like the one Sandy had. It was an expensive disposable camera but a disposable camera nonetheless. Sensing the twitch of Sandy's bushy brow, though, Jasmine had enough common sense to not say that? It caused her to stumble with her words, eyes darting between him and Jordan before finally landing on the latter.

"But it still looks nice, right Jordan?" Jasmine smiled as she pushed the burden onto the boy.
