"Good morning, Princess," Zeke smiles as I get into his car.

Zoey had a dentist appointment this morning so Zeke agreed to drive me to school.

"Don't drive fast," I sigh and put my seatbelt on.

"I see you're very cheery this morning."

I look at him blankly, "It's Monday."

He nods, understandingly, "Right."

Then he starts driving in his crazy way with the music so loud I think I might be deaf or dead after this.

I let out a breath when he pulls into a parking spot at school.

It's over.

Getting out of the car, I pull my bag on my shoulder and start towards the school entrance.

Zeke catches up, "Are you trying to run away from me without saying goodbye? I'm wounded."

"Sorry, I just want to get as far away from that thing as possible."

"You mean Jared? He's so friendly, how could you say such a thing?"

"Who's Jared?" We walk into school and I head to my locker, Zeke coming with me.

"My car, of course."

"You name your car?"

"Yeah, he's my best friend."

I laugh and open my locker, Zeke waits for me.

"So, have you smoked yet?"

"No."

I narrow my eyes at him, "Show me what's in your pockets."

He pulls out the contents in the pockets of his hoodie. All that's there is chewing gum and keys, and his yang necklace.

"Your pants."

"Check that yourself," he smirks.

I just give him a look, which he responds by rolling his eyes and reaching into one of his pockets and pulling out the inside fabric.

"Nothing there," he smiles.

"Other one."

His smile drops.

"Zeke."

He sighs and reaches in and pulls out a lighter.

"I wasn't gonna use it," he says quickly.

"Then why do you have it?"

"It's just a habit. I always bring one everywhere I go."

I place my hand out in front of me and he puts it in the palm of my hand. "Good boy." I throw it into my locker. I'll get rid of it later.

"You're wearing your necklace," he looks at my chest where my yin necklace is hanging.

"And you're not wearing yours."
