Who: Mike & Artie
Where: The pool in Artie's backyard
What: Swimming and rekindling the lost brotherhood by planning a summer project for the New Directions
When: Saturday, July 16
Artie lay stretched out on a raft in the pool, already baking in the sun. He'd mastered the art of applying just the right amount of sunscreen to prevent himself from burning yet also achieve the much desired tan. It just sucked when guys like Puck and Mike, who had ethnicity to provide golden brown skin
also abs, came over. Whatever... at least he wasn't going to be a pale white boy for the first month or so back at school. He was also considering lemon juice for his hair. He'd always wondered how he'd look with highlights...
His parents and Amy were home today. That meant he wouldn't be secretly chugging down beers today; the cooler was stocked with soda instead. Artie wanted to make sure he said all the right things today. He had some repair work to do on their friendship, and he really wanted to do right by Mike Chang this time. Because having awesome abs, dancing skills, and an Asian heritage wasn't a crime.
