My parents got home from visiting KJ today. Thank god they didn't come home yesterday during me and Grayson's near sex experience. I would've gotten my head chopped off.
"Where have you been?" Ethan asked.
"Who are you? My mom?"
"Answer the question."
"Aria agreed to tutor me in bio. What's the big deal?"
"I feel like there's more to the story but okay." he said and walked away.
the following day
I really hope Ethan isn't catching onto any vibes, if there are any. I don't think there's any tension between she and I. Hopefully there's none of that either.
He glared at me.
"What kind of games are you playing right now?"
I patted his shoulder. "Let's get to class."
"You? Going to class? That's new."
"I'm trynna get at her. She said I have to change. So I have to seem like I'm changing."
"You're such a– never mind."
I wonder when she's gonna have an answer for me. Maybe today? We'll just have to wait and see.
Let's just skip to when we went to her house.
Her mom went back to work after being on break for about a week so it was just us two in the house right now.
She led me to her room.
"Are we not studying in the living room?" I put my stuff by her desk.
She set her stuff on her desk, "oh, I just needed to grab a few things is all."
"Do you have an answer for me yet? Not to sound pushy or anything, I just wanna know."
"I think I'm leaning toward yes, but I still don't know yet. I might have a solid answer for you by tomorrow. But don't quote me on that."
"Like I said, take your time."
We walked out to the living room. Then came a moment like in the movies where someone drops something and the other person offers to pick it up and their hands touch and all that. I tripped on my foot and dropped a few papers. I knelt down to get it and Grayson helped. His hand brushed against mine and we stared at each other for a few seconds. I cleared my throat and continued to walk to the living room.
After a good 30 minutes of explaining stuff to him, I heard the garage door open.
"So do you understand it now?" my mom walked in. I didn't want my mom to walk in and make it awkward for everyone, if she found out about Grayson and I.
I think he caught on to what I was trying to do, so he played along.
"I get a general idea of it, yes."
"Hey kids." she placed her stuff on the kitchen counter.
"Hello, Mrs. Argenal."
"Hi, Grayson. How's your studying going?"
"It's going." I replied.
"I better get going. My mom's probably almost done with dinner. It was nice seeing you again."
"Likewise. Say hi to your parents for me."
I walked him out, "thanks for the help." he said.
I rolled my eyes. "you're welcome."
"Walk me out to the car?"
I did as requested and he looked at me.
"I'll see you tomorrow?"
"We actually have to study tomorrow for the test the next day. Fucking hate that class."
"Yet you do so well?"
"Your brother helps me a lot so."
He kissed my cheek.
"Until tomorrow." he got in his car and left.
I walked back into the house.
"'Tell your parents I said hi.' Don't you work with his dad?"
"I just wanted to seem polite."
Mom, you're literally so fake.
