Recap of chapter 3; Callies uncle finds out she ashamed of him.
"Are... You... Ash...Amed... Of... Me?" He repeated. I stood there, thinking about what to say. He was disabled, not dumb.
"No, no, no." I assured him.
"Then... Why... Didn't... You... Men... Tion...
Me?" he asked. I thought for a little while, playing with nails.
"Its just that, I don't like people know my business Terry."
I answered. He groaned before dribbling down his topped. I rolled my eyes as I headed for the tissues. I wiped him down like a baby before telling him I was getting in the shower.
The shower was nice. I was in a deep daydream about my life. I imagined being back with my parents. I imagined asking my mum about boy problems and her hugging me and telling me everything was going to be OK. I snapped out of it and realized it wasn't going to happen as the doorbell wrang. I angrily tied my towel around myself as I realized Terry wasn't going to answer it.
I stepped out of the bathroom, being careful of not stepping on any dirt that might be lying around. It was Jay. Erm, what was he doing here? I wondered.
"What now!?" I yelled angrily.
"Sorry to disturb you. Do you want to go to the beach with me tomorow?" He asked, nervously. Bless him.
"Erm, No, sorry." I replied coldly. I saw the look on his face, the dissapointment in his eyes, how could I say no to that? I said yes and we made the arrangments.
The beach... I remember. That was the last place I had went before my parents died. It would be nice going back there. I wasn't going because I wanted to go with him or anything... But because I needed too. I needed to get over it and try and have some fun.
I doubted we would be home before 4, and I didn't want to have to hassle him. So I asked one of the nurses that popped in before bed.
"June, please can you do me a big favour? You know I don't ask for many favours but I need this." I pleaded.
"What is it?"
"Can you cover my shift tommorow, please?" I asked.
"No! No way! That means I would have worked a whole like 13 hours." she replied.
"June please! I need a break, for once. You know I work incredibly hard, I just need a break. Please I'll be back at 7, before 7!"
"No! If your back at 7, that means I would have worked 13 hours." was there no cracking this chick?
"Please! I need this!" I yelled, now on my knees.
"Get up Callie, don't be silly! No is no." she replied, firmly, before exiting the room. What was I to do? I couldn't miss the day, Jay would think I was stupid or didn't want to be with him. Which was true, but I still had to go!
