Romance: Light--he has a crush on a girl at school.

If he doesn't know it already, Jeremiah Crane is about to learn that I'm not the type of girl to be pushed around. Standing behind him, I watch as he stretches his long arms across the back of the wooden bench, feigning ignorance of my presence. I glare down at the top of Jeremiah's new hat, which he probably bought because it looks just like the trilby Rudolph Valentino wore in last month's issue of Photoplay.
