The Tables Have Turned
I groaned as I answered my phone as it rang Saturday morning. It was still too early.
“Hello?” I mumbled sleepily, my eyes still shut.
“Good morning!”Paul chirped from the other end. “Are you ready?”
“For what?” I replied, my brain still not fully awake.
“For our day together,” he said, his mood dropping slightly.
“It’s too early!” I protested.
“I want to spend as much time with you as possible,” he replied and I smiled.
“Fine, I’ll get up,” I said as I sat up in my bed.
“Great! I’ll be there in thirty minutes,” he said before hanging up.
I sighed when I saw on my phone that it was still 9:30a.m. I then got out of bed and went to take a shower.
Fifteen minutes later, I was out of the shower and picking my clothes. I finally decided to wear a pair of black skinny jeans and a light blue V-neck long-sleeved shirt with my black flats.
I then braided my wet hair and once I was done, I grabbed a purse, shoving in it all the things I needed, and then went downstairs. Emily and Chase were still sleeping but I knew that Chase, unlike Emily and I, kept his phone on silent at night so I sent him a message saying that I was going out with Paul. He’d see it when he wakes up.
I made myself a cheese sandwich and ate it. When I was done, I heard the doorbell. I grabbed a cherry lollipop and put it in my purse before running to the door.
“Hey,” I said as I opened the door and saw Paul standing there, with a grin on his face. He was wearing dark blue jeans and a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up. For a second I wondered if he was cold but then I remembered that he almost never gets cold.
“Ready?” he asked and I nodded.
He wrapped an arm around my shoulders in a friendly gesture as we walked to where his car was parked.
“Where are we going?” I asked.
“You’ll see,” he said and I rolled my eyes at the cliché reply. I still loved surprises though.
I climbed in his car and we put on our seatbelts before he started driving. We had a really different taste in music so we kept on fighting about what songs to listen to the whole way.
“Stop changing the station!” I ordered him, shooting him a glare.
I saw his lips twitch and I huffed in annoyance. He was enjoying that. I took out my lollipop and shoved it in my mouth.
“Why do you like lollipops that much?” Paul asked and I shrugged.
“They taste good,” I replied.
He smirked and said, “Or maybe you just like the sucking. Alex is one lucky guy…”
I gasped as my cheeks turned red. “Paul! You’re such a pervert!”
He laughed at my discomfort and I just scowled.
“Stop scowling,” he said when he stopped laughing. “It was just a joke.”
I stuck my tongue out at him and he smirked again and before I could tell him to stop the dirty comment he was going to make, he spoke.
“Your tongue is red. Slow down on the sucking,” he said and then burst out laughing.
“Paul!” I yelled at him again. He knew it was because the cherry lollipop was red!
“I’m so funny,” he said and I raised an eyebrow at him.
“And modest,” I muttered sarcastically and he chuckled.
“Don’t worry, Hailey, you’re funny too,” he said.
“I know,” I said arrogantly making him laugh again.
“We’re here!” He said and that’s when I looked out of the window and gasped.
In front of us was an amusement park with tons of rides!
I squealed like a little girl and jumped up and down in my seat. He started laughing at me. I opened the car door and ran out of the car.
“Come on! Faster!” I called out to Paul who was taking his time.
