“Hello.” I ব্যক্ত gruffly.
“Where are you?” my mother barked.
“At Alice’s.” I said.
“I told আপনি to be প্রথমপাতা দ্বারা ten and it’s ten and you’re not here.” My mother yelled.
“I forgot. Can’t I spend a little আরো time with Alice?” I asked.
“No, আপনি have school tomorrow.” My mother hissed.
“I’m on my way.” I ব্যক্ত defeated and disappointed. I hung up and turned to see Alice’s angelic face.
“You have to go home.” She said.
“Yea, Mom beckoned me home. She says we have school tomorrow.” I said.
“Okay. See আপনি tomorrow, Jazzie.” Alice ব্যক্ত before planting a wet চুম্বন on my lips. Alice walked me to the door and watched as I left. I sped প্রথমপাতা to make sure I arrived not too late. When I pulled into the drive, the light was on outside. I ran inside to be greeted দ্বারা my mother.
“15 মিনিট late.” My mother tsked.
“Sorry ma’am. I forgot.” I said.
“Like আপনি forgot to go to work? Your employer called to find out why আপনি never showed.” My mother shouted.
“Mom, I’m sorry.” I ব্যক্ত because I couldn’t tell her the truth. She’d think Alice was crazy.
“You’re sorry? That’s all আপনি have to say. After I left that girl live here, this is how আপনি repay your father and I. We took her in no প্রশ্ন asked. Are আপনি two sleeping together? Is that your problem? That girl is changing আপনি Jasper. আপনি used to be so punctual and no we’re lucky if you’re an ঘন্টা late. Jasper Hayden Whitlock, আপনি tell me the truth, are আপনি and that girl sleeping together?” my mother was a bright red.
“No ma’am we’re not. I promise.” I ব্যক্ত quietly.
“Get to bed, আপনি have school tomorrow.” My mother ব্যক্ত dismissing me. I ran upstairs to my room and got into bed. I grabbed my phone and texted Alice.
Hey. Are আপনি in trouble?
Not a lot. Mom freaked and thought we were sleeping together.
Oh. Sorry I got আপনি in big trouble. I’m sure your mother hates me now. What’d she say?
Not much. Told me she knew I’d skipped out on work and wanted to know why. Of course I just apologized and she sent me to bed.
Wow. Sounds bad.
It wasn’t too bad.
I’m still sorry.
No worries Ali cat.
I’m tired so I’m off to bed. Sweet dreams.
You too, darling. I প্রণয় you.
I প্রণয় আপনি more.
I fell asleep shortly after and woke to the sun shining in my window. I crawled out of বিছানা and into some jeans and a t-shirt. I grabbed shoes and went downstairs to eat something before I went to school. I grabbed a pop tart and headed out. When I arrived at school I instantly looked for Alice’s shiny black BMW. When she stepped out, my jaw dropped. She was dressed in a grey dress with a thick black বেল্ট and black heels. She had পরাকাষ্ঠা tights on too. She walked towards me and I wrapped my arms around her protectively.
“You look gorgeous, babe.” I ব্যক্ত awe-struck.
“Is it too much?” she asked quietly.
“No, আপনি look perfect.” I ব্যক্ত grabbing my school bag. Alice took my hand and we walked into the school. As we walked down the halls I noticed Alice focused on her shoes.
“Jazzie, are আপনি mad at me?” Alice asked when we stopped at her locker.
“No. Never. Why?” I asked perplexed.
“Just curious.” Alice ব্যক্ত grabbing her Chem book. I took her hand in mine.
“Mary Alice Brandon, I প্রণয় আপনি and nothing could stop that. Unless of course আপনি wanted to বিভক্ত করা ways and have someone else.” I ব্যক্ত putting my forehead against hers.
“Oh Jazzie, you’re too good for me.” Alice cooed স্নেহ চুম্বন me briefly.
“I mean it.” I ব্যক্ত sweetly.
“I know.” Alice ব্যক্ত grabbing my hand and heading towards her Chem class. I watched as she sat down পরবর্তি to her partner, Edward Masen. Then I made my way to Pre-Cal.
