"Are you riding with us?" Alia asked her as she caught up with us after Home Ec.
"I dunno, I think my mom wants me to do chores before I head over." She makes a cute little annoyed face and then pulls out her cellphone. "Lemme call her real quick."
"Ri, will you please leave her alone. She's not used to being around people who are so obnoxious," Alia says to me as Carla walks away talking on her phone.
"I honestly didn't know I was coming of as 'obnoxious'," I say using air quotes.
"Well it's annoying to people who aren't used to it. Just leave her alone for a little while. Especially in public. She still doesn't really know other people here that well."
"I really didn't think it would be-"
"She said I can ride with y'all," Carla says unknowingly interrupting as she placed her phone in her backpack.
"You're southern is showing," I nudged her and turned to walk towards my truck.
"She's gonna have Leo do the chores since he skipped out last Friday," Carla says referring to her younger brother.
"Hey, big brother?" Carla asks ok her "I'm Trying To Sound Sweet But Actually Just Really Want Something" voice.
"What do you want?" I say pretending to glare at her.
"Can we go with you to Richie's tomorrow?" She says giving me a pleading look.
"Why?" I ask already knowing the answer. Alia has been crushing on a guy on my baseball team named Tyler. They've been flirting back and forth for a year, but they're both too afraid to make the first move.
"I'm just craving a Blueberry Blast," she shrugs and plays it off like that's the only reason she wants to go. "In a few months I won't even have to ask your permission."
Alia has been training for her driver's license like crazy the past few months. She says that the day she doesn't have to ride in my smelly boy-toy car anymore will be the best day of her life.
"You can come this time, but just for that, I'm not taking you next week." I respond.
"Whatever," She says as we pull into our driveway.
"I still can't get over how huge your house is." Carla speaks up from the back seat.
"Eh, you get used to it," I responded climbing out.
"Kids! You left all the DVDs out in the den again!" My mom yells from the kitchen as she hears us walk through the door.
"The girls did it!" I shout winking at Carla as I tread up the stairs to get started on my chemistry homework.
