The initial spark

(Restart Story)

You eye the seat next to Natalie, and decide to sit there. Natalie looks at you with a slight smile, and you return the favor.
"Hey, weren't we partners in chemistry last year?"
You think about Natalie's question for a second, trying to remember. Math and science courses usually fade from your memory quickly.
"Oh yeah," you reply, "I remember." You nod slowly while speaking.
"Yeah we were a pretty good team! I wonder if we'll have any classes together this year..."
Since she brought it up, you compare each other's class lists. Turns out you share English class together, right after lunch. You aren't great friends with Natalie, really, she's probably no more than a mediocre acquaintance. Still, it's always nice to have someone to talk to. You and Natalie get off the bus together once it arrives at school, say bye, and being walking in separate directions to your first classes.
