Derek ~ Work - Card #3

You’re at the pool and the regulars are doing their early-morning laps.  You keep looking at the clock and are getting really anxious.  It is almost time for Charlene to pick you up.

You really want it to work out with her, especially since her dad is pulling strings to get you a scholarship for college.  But you also know things can’t go on this way.  You have to find a way to break up with her.  You don’t know what to do, or how to keep her from going all crazy on you, but you’re going to have to figure it out.

This part of Derek’s story ends here.

Why is it so hard for Derek to figure out what to do about Charlene?

How does race impact Derek and his relationship with Charlene?
