"Tell me what happened!" Brittany called as she chased her younger sister, who evidently had a rough day. Normally Eleanor would have handled Jeanette and Brittany would have come when Jeanette had calmed down with ice cream. But seeing as Ellie had stayed after school to help bake something for teacher appreciation day, Brittany would have to help Jeanette.
"You just wouldn't get it Britt." Jeanette yelled over her shoulder when she suddenly stopped and turned on her heel. "Every guy at school LOVES you! You're never clumsy when you're around Alvin! You always know what to do and say. I just stumble around like a fool…"
"Oh, this is about Simon," Brittany said as she reached a hand out towards Jeanette's shoulder, but Jeanette blushed red and wondered why she even bothered to tell Brittany. She quickly turned back around and tried to swiftly walk home when she tripped over a raised bump in the sidewalk and hit the pavement hard.
"Not again," Jeanette said as she rubbed her leg and felt the warm liquid she knew as blood. Brittany helped her distressed sister up and silently assisted her home.
"So?" Brittany said as she went into the cabinet and grabbed the box of bandages. "Are you gonna tell me what happened?"
"Fine," Jeanette replied in defeat while Brittany attended to the cuts on Jeanette's legs. "Can we sit on the front porch; that's where Ellie and I go when she is fixing me up after a fall like this one?" Brittany nodded as she opened the front door for her sister.
Jeanette took a deep breath, "Simon and I were assigned to be lab partners in class today. And, well…If you think tripping over that stupid bump in the sidewalk for the billionth time is clumsy, then you haven't heard anything yet."
Brittany just sat there next to Jeanette and looked off into the distance toward the Seville house. "But what happened?" She asked again.
"Simon kept asking for chemicals and I would hand them to him. It was all going fine until our hands touched while I was handing him a somewhat unstable chemical. I let go of the test tube before he had a hold of it and it fell into the a beaker we had put on the Bunsen burner and it just… it started smoking, then black slime started to bubble out, I'm so stupid." Jeanette finished telling her sister as she buried her face in her hands.
"No you're not, you're just in love." Brittany said as she grabbed Jeanette's backpack and dug around in it until she found what she was looking for. "Jeanette, you know he feels the same way, don't you?" She pulled out the framed picture of Simon Jeanette kept in her backpack.
"No he doesn't. I'm just Jeanette; he could have any girl he wants, any cheerleader. Why would he want me?" Jeanette said as she grabbed the photo, "And how did you know this was in there?" Jeanette demanded.
"Alvin saw you hide it in there the day we all went to the movies after school last week. He says Simon has one of you he keeps in his wallet. He loves you Jean, trust me." Brittany said as she went back inside the house to give Jeanette some time to think.
Simon, who had just had a similar conversation with his older brother, was just heading over to the Miller's house to apologize for having dropped the test tube when he stopped dead in his tracks as he heard the most beautiful voice, Jeanette's, singing the end of "Clumsy" to a photograph of him.
