    I would’ve thought they talked for five seconds, but twenty minutes ain’t bad.

    No secrets as Axel can easily see Fay does not have a phone fetish. He knows she is into him.

    If Axel is so friendly, why hasn’t he spoken to Fay yet? It’s not nice of him to leave her hanging like that all the time.

    Now let’s see how many people posting here will complain of:

    1. We will not know for a very long time (if ever) just what it was Fay and Axel talked about.

    2. Axel never removed his sunglasses no matter how late at night it was.

    You go, Fay! You’re the best hope that boy has.

    As I have said before, the fact that Fay likes Axel is the best indicator I have seen that somehow Greg accidentally scripted him doing something he would not actually do a few weeks ago.

    “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way!”

    We don’t get to hear anything but the start of the conversation between Fay and Axel, but based on that, it is easy to guess how the conversation went:

    Fay: Hi Axel

    Axel: Oh, hey, Fay.

    Fay: Did you like the Wizard of Oz?

    Axel: Oh, way okay.

    Fay: I memorized the part of Glinda the good witch.

    Axel: Oh, yea, portray.

    Fay: Who was that guy with the big forehead sitting next to you?

    Axel: Oh, way, gay.

    Fay: That’s good to know. I am here with Luann. She’s giving me individual acting lessons.

    Axel: Oh, say, Broadway.

    Fay: Do you always speak in rhyme?

    Axel: No.

    Luann has done well tonight. Fay will undoubtedly have an adrenlin rush for several days. This will most likely improve her health and certainly her happiness over the suceses of the evening will be obvious to her mother. Yep, our heroine did well in her coaching.

    Pipe, down, Fay. He probably could hear you. You don’t want to embarrass him and guys are easily embarrassed and lash out.

    I remember when there was a girl I thought would never give me the chance to converse. Seemed so ‘unapproachable’, from my standpoint. Around friends, or by herself. But somehow, one day, I got the chance to axtually say words in her presence, and she genuinely chuckled in delightful amusement. After that day, I found I could say “hi!” to her,with a “hi!” back, two ships passing in the day, as we travelled between classes. I learned from that experience, that not all girls are unapproachable, even though their “front gates of approach” seem so well-guarded, tall, and formidable/intimidating.

    -

    Then, years later, during a blind date setup by phone, I heard the “very suitable for late night radio”-like voice (got her voicemail, as she was away from her phone), I nervously (and “conveniently”) didn’t leave my number, as I left my message. After she conferred with our mutual friend, and that friend called me, to find out why I forgot to leave the number, our friend then kindly relayed it back, and she actuaslly returned my call! I surprisingly found out, again , that some females are like “The Wizard Of Oz” (which sorta makes this an ‘appropriate play’ to have as a backdrop to this story), in that what only seems to be an intimidating personna, is not at all what they’re like, behind the curtain, so to speak.

    -

    It’s been a while, since that second encounter, though. I wonder how that person is doing, right now. I think I’ll just lean over and ask my wife: “Hey, babe! How are you doing?”….

    So, Axel is in college and Fay is, what, barely in High School? Is this appropriate?

    They like each other, and Fay is getting over her shyness, and Axel gets to talk to her, while still maintaining his cool. Eventually they will morph into just being themselves around each other I think, but I think I am, so far, vindicated in my assertions that they both like each other, but have different versions of shyness (although Axel could just like theater anyway, so that could be he is always around at theater events), and Luann is just a fantastic life coach, friend type of person. Being a k-8 teacher, or even child therapist should be in her future, but whither Bernie? Love this arc, but as Ringo and Seis would say I am a Luann#1 fan. -:)

    Ha ha, Gunther and Luann and Charlie Brown wished they were as bold, at that age!

    -

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though- This is only an introduction, and Axel may or may not still be going through his own transitional “too cool to care” phase, and there isn’t the spound of wedding bells, just yet. But, it is a milestone for Fay, in the sense that she took a few steps in personal growth, had a few great memories, and was able to prove to herself (with coaxing/coaching from Luann) that the “Great Wall Of China is not as high and vast as she once thought”….

    20 minutes and if Axel had a ride, we will never know who they were, but know that they probably also realize what is going on.

    Axel has style – which often attracts girls. We don’t know if Axel is a scuzzball. He wasn’t nice about leaving the drama camp – however the event WAS a disappointing bust.

    Axel is packaged to give a certain impression. But we (or maybe Fay) might find a different sort of person underneath.

    Most (us?) guys are just jealous he still has hair — and a hot young chick deep into him. They all love me too but are mostly hoping I’ll bring presents down their chimneys and overlook their naughties. (I tell them that’s my brother but I’ll pass on their requests.)

    So far, so good, Twenty minutes is like an eternity to a shy, introverted girl such as Fay. And with Axel, no less! Maybe under that brusk exterior he actually likes her! Gad. Can the path of true young romance be so easy?

    That disconcerting pattern (the seeming innocent ones falling for the rebel, the derelict, etc.) goes back at least a half century. One need look no further than the Shangri-Las’ 1964 “Leader Of The Pack” single on the Red Bird label (“He’s good-bad, but he’s not evil”, according to the lyrics) for details.
