I wanted to like this, but it was clear from the first page that I wasn't going to. The scene description, character descriptions, dialogue.. it's all mundane. Twice in the story (and it is SHORT), the author wrote in the total bill for their lunches. TWICE. And described your run-of-the-mill school cafeteria, with absolutely no interesting or unique details.

This is a short story which takes place in a cafeteria, and the main character is convinced she's in love with a guy she's never talked to. Heard that one before, right? And when you idolize someone you don't actually know, they often disappoint you. So, guess what happens...

With an ending like that, I have no idea why the author even wrote this story. No character development, no lessons learned. It doesn't have a point, really.

The good part: I finished this in about 5 minutes.
