Chapter 16 - Making Enemies
I wake up for school refreshed and ready to start a new day. I have my daily shower and get changed in my regular clothes. The weather outside looked like it was going to be a good day so I decided to wear one of my demin shorts that I brought from Colorado. Just as I slipped into them, my phone began to vibrate. I grinned when I saw who it was.
“Ashley! How are you?” I answer immediately. We haven’t talked in a while and I was beginning to get the feeling that we were slipping apart without us realising. But now that she called, it seems that there will be hope for our friendship yet.
“I miss you!” She practically screams down the cell. I smile warmly at hearing my friend’s voice.
“I miss you too.” I reply as I continue to get ready for school.
“Then come visit me.” She moans down the phone. I can hear chattering in the background which tells me she must be with her friends from school. Like Chase’s past girlfriends, Ashley’s school friends didn’t like me either. They repeatedly asked her like why was she friends with the weird girl who didn’t socialise with anybody other than her brother and next door neighbour. And every time Ashley would put them back in place. Which was why I treasured her as a friend so much.
“I can’t. I only moved here.” I sigh while picking up a light cardigan from on top of my dresser. An idea hits me then. “Why don’t you come here for a while? Gran has plenty of space and I’m sure Chase wouldn’t mind seeing you.” I suggest. I can literally hear her brain thinking as she is quiet down the other line.
“I don’t know.” She begins slowly.
“Why not?” I whine playfully.
“Well to be honest, I don’t think California can handle me. But if it’s to see my best friend in the whole wide world then I guess I’m just going to have to suck it up. If it’s all right with your gran that is,” Just then I hear demanding voices in the background and Ashley hissing back. “Because she’s my friend, now piss off,” Then there is more demanding voices. “Fine Derek! I’m coming!” She yells back at this person Derek.
“Is everything okay Ash?” I ask, concerned at what’s happening.
“I’m fine. Sorry Momo, I have to go, bye.”
I don’t even have a chance to say good bye before she hangs up. Shrugging, I throw my cell on the bed and head to the bathroom to brush my teeth.
Soon I am ready and waiting for my brother to eat his breakfast. Oscar whipped us up waffles this morning and as always, they tasted amazing. Finally Chase gobbled up the last forkful and began rubbing his tummy in satisfaction.
“Oscar has outdone his self.” He sighed, closing his eyes in satisfaction. I rolled my eyes. If he carried on eating like he was, he was sure to be ten times the size he is now.
“And you will explode someday if you don’t stop taking second helpings.” I comment, jumping from my chair and retrieving my bag from the foyer. Chase follows behind, moaning about needing time to digest but I quickly learn to ignore him. For some reason I am eager to get to school and I refused to believe that it has something to do with a certain player you kissed me and called me cute all in the same night.
“Ugh what’s the hurry?” My brother complains while slipping into the driver’s seat.
“There is no hurry. I just don’t want to sit around all day watching you moan and groan because you ate too much.” I reply, shaking my head at him as we pull out of the driveway. “Remember tonight is movie night.” I remind him of our weekly tradition. Every Wednesday was our movie night where he actually stays in and we whip out the popcorn and choose a movie to watch. This week it was his turn to pick the film and I knew it would be of the action genre.
