Talking to Line was even more uncomfortable than I had imagined it might be. Things didn’t flow smoothly at all. And Laine even looked tough, with heavy dark blue eyeliner ringing her eyes and black nail polish.
This makes me kind of sad for Laine. I'm sure she was nice to Stacey because she was genuinely happy to see her. She probably fell in with the wrong crowd and realized that Stacey was a true friend. But, being Laine, who's too cool for school, she'd never admit that to herself or anyone else. I feel kind of sorry for her. She's probably just so used to being cool and doing what's expected of her that she's forgotten (or never learned) to be her own person. I can see where that would make someone unhappy, even if they don't realize it. I'd like to think Laine realizes that at some point and stops caring about what other people think.
*edited for clarity, I was rambling a bit so I cleaned it up a little.
I said this in the thread for Stacey's Problem -- I wish I had seen this discussion first! -- but I actually liked Laine more than Stacey there, because I agreed with her observations about Stacey dumping Claudia for a guy and Jeremy being a jerk. Laine was telling it like it is, and Stacey was uncomfortable because she disagreed with Laine's opinions of what Stacey had told her. Maybe Laine's statements weren't the kindest, but they were more honest than Stacey was being about the situation with Claudia and Jeremy.
