His Mistake

97 2 6

After many decades worth of music were shuffled and played on the IPod, I leaned against the passenger door and laughed at Drew's failure of singing the current song.

But now there's nowhere to HIIIIDE

Since you pushed my love ASIIIIDE


He leaned closer and sang terribly off key

Hoooooplessly devotEEEED to YOUUU

by this point, I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt. I howled, falling over.

He stopped his seagull like voice and grinned "I finally did it!!" He shouted in triumph.

I looked at him and sat back up "What's that supposed to mean?" He chuckled "I finally got you to laugh and smile. You've been completely emotionless the entire time except for right now. I finally broke your bearing."

Hearing this, I immediately went stone faced and crossed my arms over my chest "So this entire time you've just been trying to break me? I see how it is."

I didn't look up at him, but I could definitely hear the defensiveness in his voice "No, that's not what I meant! I just wanted you to have a little...fun." he trailed off and we sat in silence for a while as the songs played through.

I looked put the window, surprised to see something that made no sense "Isn't that a high school?" It was silent for a moment before I heard a quiet "Yes." From the driver.

I looked at the building, puzzled as we passed "If this place is closer to your house, why don't you go there?" No answer. I looked at him to see him clutching the wheel tighter and take a deep breath "I didn't want to. Simple as that."

I shook my head "That doesn't make sense, Why not-"

"Can you please just drop the subject?" He shot out, not daring to look at me.

Something was up, but it didn't look like I would get much info at this rate. I dropped the subject and heard him give a deep sigh.

 "Well, here we are."

I looked through the front window to see a large gray and white house with two stories and a pretty big front door surrounded by a bunch of plants.

"Your stereotypical wealthy family house." I muttered under my breath.

I don't know if he heard me or not, but he spoke like he understood. "Yeah, welcome to the steriotypical dream house. Made for the stereotypical perfect family."

I looked at him, a bit surprised at the slightly bitter expression on his face. It went away almost immediately though, replaced with his doll-like smile. "Its still raining, so make sure you have the jacket on tight, okay?"

I nodded silently and we both got out. Only now did I realize how terrible this whole idea was. His parents were most likely the snobby kind who weren't afraid to kick you out if you weren't their standards. I'd be out of here quicker than anything if that was the case.

"This is stupid." I muttered and stopped walking. He looked at me confused for a moment, then realization dawned on his face "Don't worry, neither of my parents at home, and even if they were, they wouldn't care who I brought home."

Like that made anything better.

He sighed and held his hand out to me "Look, I know we just met today, but please trust me when I say everything will be fine." He looked at me with a hopeful look "Do you trust me?"

I looked at him, wanting to say no, but I couldn't, for the life of me, get the word to come out. Instead, I simply nodded and took his hand "You better be telling the truth."
