Chloe’s POV

I can’t believe I spent the night with Jerk-man or Mason; I should probably start calling him Mason, he did take care of me last night or something.

That's not even the worse part of it, what’s worst are the things I did that I  don’t remember doing.

I’m lucky he’s the one who found me and not some random guy. I could’ve ended up worse. I should thank him for taking care of me last night.

I stayed at their living roon while I waited for Mason; looking at the pictures that are on display. He’s a really cute kid when he was younger.

I felt my phone vibrate; Mum's face flashed on the screen, an  indication she’s calling me. I forgot to check my phone earlier because of the embarrassment and humiliation I was faced with.

“Hello?” I answered.

“Thank god you answered! I’ve been calling you since last night. Are you okay?” she asked, concern evident in her tone.

“Yes mum, I’m fine. I stayed at a friend’s house last night. I had one to many drinks and I wasn't able to call you.” I informed her. "Sorry."

“It's okay, I'm just glad you're safe. Where are you now?”

“Still at my friend’s house. I’ll go straight home after school, okay?”

“Okay… bye.” she said.

“Bye.” then ended the call. My parents are one of those cool parents. As long as I inform them about my where abouts and who I’m with. They’re cool with it.

I continued to look at the pictures on display and what caught my attention was a picture of him and a woman; I picked it up. I heard footsteps and turned to see a well dressed Mason. 

“Is this your mum?” I asked.

“Yeah...”

“She’s really pretty.” I told him. He has his mother’s eyes.

“She’s dead.” he said. I was taken aback by the response he gave. I wasn’t expecting that.

“I’m sorry.” I said. He ignored me.

“Come on.” he said and I followed him to the front door.

*******

“Where did you go last night? When it was time to leave we couldn’t find you anywhere, I left you like a bunch of messages.” Andy told me.

I took my usual in health which is in front of her.

Andy was worried the whole night and said she felt guilty because she was the one who convinced me to come to the party, she also said she felt responsible for me.

I kept telling her I'm fine and that she had nothing to worry about,  but she was persistent to know about what happened to  me last night.

So to ease her burden, I told her the story Mason told me this morning.

“Really? He did that?” she seemed surprised.

“Yeah, why?”

“Wow! Never thought Mason was a gentleman.”

“Yeah, I thought he was just an annoying jerk.”

“So, this proves the rumor’s true huh?”

“What are you talking about? What rumor?”

“There’s a rumor going around that said you’ve slept with Mason last night, and you showing up to school wearing his clothes and getting out of his car proves them right.” she said. Well, she’s got a point.
