Arrietty looked really worried. She was sitting on the sofa at John's house.
"He was going to leave for college in a few days. He was a top A student in high school, but when he dropped out a day before it started. He won't eat, he stays in his room all day, and he even dismissed the invitation to be his best friend's groomsman at her wedding!" Arrietty exclaimed. "He's really worrying me. I've been sleeping on the sofa for the past few days and I've tried to convince him to visit the doctor's office, but he just tells me to go away."
