Chapter 8

When Chris had pulled out of the driveway I turned and ran up to my bedroom. I grabbed my cell

phone and called my best friend, Chasity.

"Hello Andria," she said, and I could hear the smile in her voice.

"Oh my God, Chas, guess what!" I practically screamed.

"Oh my God Andy, what?" she said back in the same tone I used.

"You know at work how I was telling you about the new kid?"

"The hot one? Yeah."

"He just asked me out."

"Like out-out, or out on a date-out?"

"Out on a date-out."

"Oh my God, that's awesome."

"I know right. It was so cute. He was nervous and then, he doesn't know any place around here, so I am going to drive."

"Awww," she exclaimed. "Where are you going to go?"

"Probably just to Sauk Centre to get pizza and then to a movie."

"That's cute. Aaron and I would be going out tonight, but the bitch is making me work."

"That's because I have off tonight," I told her guiltily.

"I know, but for you, I will gladly work."

"Aww, you're such a sweetie."

"That is why you love me."

"Ya, sure, you betcha. Anyways, I am going to get ready. I will tell you all about it tomorrow."

"Okay, luv ya."

"Luv ya, too."

"Bye," we said at the same time.

After we hung up I went to take a bath. I decided I could take my time since I still had about three hours to get ready. When I got out, I put on my nice silky robe. I had to blow dry my hair so I could straighten it. I put my make-up on and then walked into my closet to pick out an outfit. I finally found one. I wore a white, sleeveless dress that went down to my knees that had a black sash across the stomach with a floral design at the bottom. I put on a pair of black ballet flats. I grabbed a white clutch purse and walked down the stairs.

"Hey sweetie, Happy Birthday."

"Mom! I didn't know you were home," I said to my mother.

"Your father and I just got back."

"Where is he?"

"In the bathroom. He will be right down."

"He's right here," I heard from the stairs.

"Daddy." I ran up to my dad and gave him a huge hug.

You know the saying "Daddy's Little Girl"? Well, that's me.

"How did the trial go? Did you get the scumbag off?" I asked them.

You know those famous people who did something wrong and everyone knows that they are guilty but then they get off with a slap on the wrist? Well, they have to have really good lawyers. My mom and dad are the owners of one of those law firms and they are the best in the business.

"He was innocent. Of course we got him off," my dad scoffed.

"Sure he was innocent."

"So honey, where you off to?" my mom asked me.

"I'm going on a date with Chris," I told her.

"That hot new guy?" my mom squealed.

I swear, sometimes she could act younger than me. You just don't want to get into an argument with her. I have yet to win one.


"Where is he driving you to?" my father asked.

"Well, Daddy, he is new so he doesn't know any place to go. So I am going to drive."

"I want to meet him."

"Not on the first date George," my mom scolded him when she saw the look of horror on my face.

"Yes, Lyn, otherwise she doesn't go."

"Fine, but do not use the 'cops' threat."

The 'cops' threat is my dad saying, "I know every cop in the county buddy."

"Okay, lawyers honor, I won't use the 'cops' threat."

"That really comforts me," I scoffed while my mom chuckled.

Just then the doorbell rang. As I walked to get it, I was thinking to myself, "Well, here goes nothing."
