Youth Conference

I started to have a sinking feeling. It's because of my own weakness, I thought. If I were more righteous, I'd be receiving the message like everyone else. Even Tom has received the "burning in the bosom." I was the one that was deluding myself, not him. I resolved to study the Book of Mormon more thoroughly and pray harder and repent better. Then I knew I would receive a sure knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel.

"Wow, that was a powerful message," Tom said at the end of class.

"Yeah," I replied.

"I could really feel the spirit when she spoke, couldn't you?" he asked.

"Yes, the spirit was very strong," I said.

"Well, I'm going to tell Lara that I've finally decided. I'm ready to pass through the waters of baptism," he said. "See you later."

"Good for you," I said. "I'll see you around."

Our lunch group this time was down to me, Amy, and Tammy. Annette and Jenny were sitting with Tony and some boys from his ward, and April, Cookie, and Alexandra were all sitting with Andrew and Dan. Since it appeared to be 'eat lunch with the boys day' I looked around for Bill, but I couldn't find him. I saw Y and Z off at a table by themselves, but we weren't exactly invited to go sit by them. Then I looked for Tom and Greg, and saw that they were sitting with Kimberly and Lara.

"Well it looks like we've been abandoned," I said.

"Yeah, and I'm absolutely furious about it!" Amy said. "If that Greg thinks that he can be with Kimberly whenever she's free and then come running to me whenever she's not, then he's got another thing coming! He's not so cute to be worth putting up with treatment like that!"

"Yeah, you're better off without him," I said. "We probably were never going to see him again after Youth Conference is over anyway."

"How come today all of the sudden they're having lunch together?" Amy asked, still clearly annoyed.

"It's probably because of Tom," I said. "He was in my last class with me, and he said that he's decided to go through with it and get baptized. So Lara's undoubtedly putting in an extra effort to encourage him in his decision."

"Jeez, what a fool!" Amy said. "Can't he see that she's not interested in him? He's a nerdy guy and she has a million totally hot boyfriends. The second he's been baptized she's gonna drop him like a hot potato!"

"Amy!" Tammy interjected. "We should be happy for him that he's come to see the truthfulness of the gospel!"

Amy grumbled something in agreement and then didn't really say anything for the rest of lunch.

"I'm really not looking forward to the sports this afternoon," I said to break the silence.

"Well then your prayers have been answered," said Tammy. "Look outside." I looked across out the window and saw that it was pouring rain. It was really coming down.
