"Sweet." Henry couldn't help but smile. It was just a fluke he was here this morning. Milo handed him over the keys to get the bookdrop.
This was his time to show them he knew what to do. But he'd never done the bookdrop before. He looked at the key. He'd figure it out. He'd take the empty cart out, put it in the bin on the library driveway, and push the full cart in. Easy.
"I wonder what happened to Audrey?" Henry asked a few minutes later when he was putting books in the place where they'd be checked in.
"Who knows." Milo shrugged. "She's always giving me the evil eye." He said while getting his lap filled up with books to take to check in at the computer station.
"Maybe, that's just her mysterious look, where she's actually in love with you." Henry couldn't help but have a romantic thought. After all, things were going splendid with Derrick, lately. They'd made out, not just in the car but in Henry's room too. Yes, things were finally getting to the state of mind that Henry wanted ever so much.
"I don't think so." Milo laughed at that.
"Maybe you should surprise her." Henry grinned.
"Like ask her out?" Milo winced a grimace.
"Oh, you could bring her, her favorite candy bar, or I dunno. It doesn't have to be big. Just that you're thinking about her." Henry shrugged as he thought about Derrick more, wondering how Derrick felt about the pet name, Derry.
"But I'm not thinking about her." Milo wheeled his checked in books to a cart to put away.
"Yes, you are. You were the one who brought her up." Henry went to put the key away. He looked back at Milo who looked quite perturbed.
"I bet you're worried about her too." Henry shrugged. He sighed then as he went to put the nonfiction cart away. Yes, romance was in the air. It was that time of year. Henry could sense it.
