Yakko lay on his bed staring out the window looking very depressed. He had been like this for hours. He barely said anything and just didn't seem like himself. His siblings were starting to worry.
"Yakko, are you okay?," asked Dot.
"Huh? Oh...yeah, I'm fine," he answered, a little distracted.
"You've been like this all day," said Wakko, "what's going on?"
"Nothing's going on," said Yakko defensively, "I just...have a lot on my mind."
"What?...," Dot started to say. Then she realized something.
"You miss her, don't you?," she asked.
"Who?," asked Yakko.
"Kat," said Dot.
"I do not!," said Yakko.
"Are you sure?," asked Wakko.
"Yes I'm sure," Yakko answered.
His siblings stared at him in disbelief for a minute.
"Okay, it's true," Yakko said finally, " I miss Kat. I haven't seen her or talked to her in months and I can't stop thinking about her. "
"Well that's understandable," said Dot, "and I bet she's thinking about you too."
"You think so?," asked Yakko hopefully.
"I'm sure of it," said Dot, giving him a hug.
Little did they know what was going on a few houses down.
"Kat, do you have an answer for problem three?," asked Hope.
"Huh? What?," asked Kat, who seemed to be in another world.
"Problem three; do you have an answer?," Hope asked again.
"Oh sorry," said Kat, "I don't know."
"Is everything okay?," asked Hope.
"Yeah, everything's great," answered Kat, "why do you ask?"
"Well, you seem a little...distracted," replied Hope.
"I'm just...thinking about someone," said Kat.
"Yakko?," asked Hope, almost laughing a bit.
"Is it that obvious?," asked Kat.
"Well, you've drawn about a million little pictures of him all over your notebook," Hope said, flipping the pages in Kat's notebook. On each page were many pictures of Yakko; some with his siblings, some with him and Kat, and even one of them in a heart with the words "Love Forever" written under it.
"Okay I miss him," said Kat, "It's like I can't get him out of my head."
"Well, I can understand how you feel," said Hope, "but we need to get this algebra done or we'll both fail."
"All right," said Kat, "just give me a minute."
She walked out of the roomj and started dialing a number on her cell phone. She heard the phone ring for a minute and then heard a familiar voice on the other end. It was Yakko.
"Hello nurse!," he said.
"Yakko?," she said.
"Kat!," he said happily.
"It's been so long," they said together.
