Nalia nodded. "Okay, want me to bring something to eat? I can get some food."
"Hope about I drive you to get some Mexican then we go to my place?" he asked.
Nails smiled and nodded. "Sounds good."
"So you wanna head out" he said putting his book back up.
Nails packed her things up. "Sure."
He started to walk outside and he went up to his old shelby cobra and he opened the door for Nalia. "It isn't too shabby but its something" He said with a small smile.
Nalia grinned. "I like it; it has history and the car has been used a lot. It's a loyal car..."
"She's a beaut" he replied, holding the door open for Nalia to sit down.
Nalia slid into the car, smiling. "Thanks."
He closed the door for her and went around to the driver's seat, turning on the engine. He pulled out of the parking lot and began driving to the best Mexican place he knew. He hopped out and opened the door for Nalia.
Nalia got out and smiled. "Thanks."
He held the door open for her while asking, "What do you want, they got jalepeno popper. burritos, tacos and more"
Naliashtugged. "Anything you think is good."
"OK" he said. He walked up to the counter and said "3 jalapeno poppers, 3 bean and cheese burritos and one bean and rice burrito please." He took their order then went back to the car and drove them to his house. His parents weren't here today.
Nalia looked up at his house. "Nice place..."
"Thanks" he said with a little tinge of red on his cheeks. He opened the door and said "Come on in" He beckoned her into the living room and put the food down on the coffee table. "Dig in while I go get us some drinks" he said as he walked to the kitchen.
(Have her look at the pictures and ask about his little brother who is in them.)
Nalia nodded and glanced at a picture. She smiled. "Who's this?"
"Um thats my brother" he replied in a little squeak. "He's dead" he said.
Alia paled. "I'm sorry..."
"It's ok. You didnt know. Now lets dig in eh?" he said, breaking the awkward silence
