So personally, I think Shane's girlfriend took the whole 'flipping each other off thing' way too seriously. It's just brothers having fun, maybe she's an only child and that's why she doesn't get it.
Now that I think about it, Hannah and Shane have been gone for a really long time. It's completely quiet 'too. I was expecting to hear yelling but I don't hear anything except for the kids playing.
"Where's Shane?" I ask Drew. If anyone knows it's him.
"With Hannah I'm assuming." He says and puts his arm around Kelsey. They look so happy together. Drew is probably every girl's dream boyfriend. He never cheated on her (That I know of). He's always been there for her and he's pretty good looking. He does what ever she wants but he knows when to draw the line with her. I want to be like that with with Noah.
"Can I ask you guys for advise?" I ask sheepishly to Drew and Kelsey.
"Yeah man, what's up?"
"I don't know where this is going with Noah and I want things to move forward. I don't know how to do that." I let out a heavy sigh.
"How fast do you plan on moving?" Kelsey has a warning tone. I'm guessing that she doesn’t know I've already slept with Noah.
"Babe..." Drew says and then starts whispering in her ear. She drops her jaw and then glares at me.
"Cole! Do you want to end up like your brother?" She whisper yells at me.
"I won't. But, I don't really know how to this the whole relationship thing." I can feel the red creeping into my cheeks.
"Have you guys gone of like an actually date?" Kelsey asks me. Yeah Kels is a chick and she knows about girls, but I was hoping for guy advise here. There's no way in hell I could tell her that though.
"No,not really." Now that I think about it, I've done everything wrong. I didn't ask her on a date, I didn't ask her to be my girlfriend, the only thing I have done is sleep with her. I've done everything totally backwards and I really like Noah. I don't want to mess it up because I can't think straight.
I'm trying to plan a date I can take Noah on when Shane walks out of the bathroom. His hair is all messed up and he looks sloppy but, there is something definitely wrong with him. It's written all over his face and I'm going to get to the bottom of it.
Shane walks into the kitchen and I follow behind him, I don't think he knows I'm here. Shane takes his glasses off and rubs his eyes. "You alright?" He jumps half a foot because he didn't know I was here.
"Jezze Cole, don't scare me like that!" He says taking in a breath. "Sorry..." I mumble
"Are you okay?" I ask repeating my question.
"Um,..." He avoids my question and grabs a water bottle from the fridge.
"Shane, what's the matter? Where's Hannah?" I'm not sure what I just said but he shuts his eyes and shakes his head at me.
"I'm fine, my head just hurts a little." He's so lying. I'm going to try to change the subject.
"Have you and Hannah had like an actual date?"
"Every Thursday is date night, why?"He sounds annoyed
"I haven't taken Noah on an actual date yet. Is that wrong?" I ask sheepishly.
"YES! How could you not have done that?" He's fighting back a smile, I can tell.
"We usually just hangout at home and watch movies or do other stuff."
