My day started off pretty weird. The first thing I did was head off to Aiden's house, wait, actually Jonah's house, wait, I mean Dani's house. God, that girl moves around too much!
Anyways, so I was heading off to Dani's house because there was something that I had remembered last night during a dream. I know, it sounds stupid, but whatever. I knocked at her door, and Lillian opened it so quickly that it seemed like she was waiting for me there.
"Why are you here, dork?" She asks, smirking.
"I need to see Dani," I answer.
"Well, move out of my way, and then I guess you can head on in," she says, then pushes me to the side as she runs to some basic, black car.
I head inside and yell for Dani. She comes downstairs with her hair wet and wearing a black top and black sweatpants with a hot pink robe on top.
"Hey," she says.
"Hi, um, there's something I need to tell you," I state.
"What is it?" She asks, crossing her arms.
"Um, so I had this dream last night, but it wasn't a dream, it was a memory that I guess I had forgotten about. One day I went over to Alexis' house because she wanted to borrow some math notes. When I got there, she was holding this composition notebook. I asked her what it was, and she said she kept everyone's secrets in there, even mine and yours. She said she was kidding when I got freaked out, and then she hid it," I explain.
"Kyle, we already looked everywhere in her room, where else would it be?" She asks.
"Her second house," I answer, and she looks confused.
"What second house?" Dani questions.
"Well, no one knew this but me but her parents were splitting for a bit because her father had begun to get a gambling addiction, and her mom wanted nothing to do with it, so she kicked him out unless he would fix it. They also split their bank account. The only reason she told me was because I wouldn't give her my notes unless she told me," I tell her.
"Wow," she mumbles.
"So will you come with me to check it out? After I had that dream I remember that I had to put it in my GPS in my car, and it always remembers where I have been so I can probably find the location," I state.
"Okay, just let me get dressed," she begins to head upstairs, but then she turns around.
"What about school today? I mean I know I'm not going but why aren't you?" Dani questions, and I sigh.
"My mom thinks I'm depressed, which I kind of am, I'm just nervous that you are going to get hurt. You're all that I have left. I feel like Jonah or Aiden will call me a baby if I tell them," I answer, and look down.
"Hey, it's okay, they're not like that, I promise," she kisses my cheek, and then runs upstairs.
About twenty minutes later, Dani comes downstairs with her hair dried and wearing jeans and a t-shirt.
"You ready?" I ask.
"Yeah, let's go," she replies. We head to my car, and I begin to look through my gps, and sure enough, I find the address.
"It's about ten minutes from here," I tell her.
"Okay, that's not bad," she replies.
The first five minutes we are absolutely silent, and then all of a sudden Dani says something.
"I kissed Aiden and Jonah in the same day and now I'm confused and I have no idea who I like more and I want to be with both of them and I like both of them and they're both so nice and they both really care about me and I just have no idea what to do," she rambles.
