(9) Secrets, Lies and Love

Start from the beginning

"I will try my best sir."

"Alright, son. Enjoy your date."

"Thanks, George."

"Lyn, are you done with her yet?" he shouted out the door.

"Yeah," I heard her shout back from somewhere else in the huge house.

Andy and her mom walked in and I noticed a necklace on Andy that hadn't been there before. It was a silver chain with a single diamond on it.

"Are you ready?" she asked me.


"Have fun you two," her mom said.

"Remember what I told you Chris," George said to me.

"Ah, Dad, you said you wouldn't pull that card," Andy said to her dad. She sounded almost annoyed.

"I didn't pull any card," he answered back with a smile.

"Ya, sure, whatever."

"Don't worry sir. And like I said I will have her back by eleven," I told George.

"If you want you can keep her till twelve. But at that point she will turn back into my little pumpkin."

When George said this, Andy turned a shade of red. I had never really seen her blush before. It looked good on her.

"Bye Dad."

We walked to the garage.

"You have a Camaro?" I was stunned. Even though I have money to my name, I still haven't splurged and boughten this amazing car. I only have my Audi.

"That is Drew's car. We usually take the VW to school. Drew is paranoid about someone keying his baby. This one over here," she said gesturing to the other stall of the garage, "this one is my baby."

As she was saying this, she was walking over to a dark blue Dodge Charger.

"This kind of pales in comparison," I told her.

"Do you want to ride with me?" she asked. I nodded. "Good. Then don't knock my baby. This is my dream car."

"Sorry," I said holding my hands up. She laughed. We got into her car and she stared driving.

Andy's POV

When we got on the freeway from New Munich to Sauk Centre, I asked Chris if it would be okay if we went to Pizza Hut and then to see a movie. He said that would be great. We continued the ten minute drive just talking about random things. When we pulled in the Pizza Hut parking lot, it looked like we got lucky and there weren't that many people there.

We went inside and sat down to order. It turns out that both of our favorites are pepperoni. As we ate, we talked about his life in California. He told me that he was home-schooled because his mom though it was a better way to learn. He also said that he didn't live on the beach, but it wasn't much of a drive to a secluded on. Throughout our conversation I had the feeling that he was holding something back from me. I didn't want to push him too hard and push him away so I just let it go for the time being.

When we got to the theater we had to decide what movie to see. There were a lot of girls in line to see the new romance movie with that actor Jason Adams. I just looked at all of the giggling girls. Chris seemed to read my mind.

"Let me guess, you want to see that new Jason Adams' movie?"

"No, I honestly could live without ever having seen one of his films," I told him.

Jason Adams was the actor that all the girls thought was hot. I admit that he wasn't that bad looking, but the way that he acted while not in movies is what really rubbed me the wrong way. I know I shouldn't really care what someone else does with their own life, but he was constantly in the magazines for partying. I swear that the same girl never appeared twice in his pictures.
