Almost to Park
My phone buzzed while I was walking across the street from the park. Nicson looked at the pocket while I pulled it out.
Y where u @ ur house?
I bit my lip and looked at Nicson. He shook his head. I texted back.
I sent the message and kept on walking.Nicson tapped me on the shoulder. I looked at him, questionly. He motioned for me to follow him and went back into the trees. I followed him. He was on a stump, sitting down.
" O.K, now we can smoke." He said. I smiled, he smiled back. My phone buzzed again.
y can't u say? r u hiding something from me?
I rolled my eyes.
yea, i can say, but it's personal.
I sent it and went to sit on the same stump with Nicson. I pulled the cigars out and put one in my mouth and lighted it. He did the same.
We walked back to my house after 30 minutes. I walked in the door and found my mom right in front of me. " Dinner's ready, Renee. Um, Nicson, why don't you go back to your house?" She asked politliy.
" I'm staying here tonight."
She sighed. " Well, it might be better if you both hear. We'll talk about it after dinner."
Nicson looked at me and I shrugged.
" Talk about what?" I asked.
" Something." She said, forcefully. I rolled my eyes and went into the kitchen to get my dinner from the stove. There was chinese spaggetti, sesame chicken, and rice. 'Great', I thought to myself, 'Mom ordered chinese food again.' I picked my food and went to my room to eat. Nicson followed.
" Um, aren't you going to eat anything?" I asked. He shook his head.
" THAT." He said slowly. I sighed and shoved the plate toward him. He started to pick up a chicken when my phone started to play 'Twinkle Twinkle little star'. He laughed. I got my phone and flipped it open.
" Hello?" I asked.
" Hello?" A male voice mocked.
" Uh..." It said again.
" Who is this?"
"Who is this?"
" STOP MOCKING ME!" I shouted into the phone.
" STOP MOCKING ME!" It shouted back.
" I'm stupid."
" Your stupid."
" Gottcha!" Nicson looked at me strangely. I shrugged.
" O.K. If this is Dustin, I'm going to kill you." I said.
" O.k. If this is Dustin, I'm going to kill you." And then they hung up. I pressed the redial button.
" Yeah, who is this?"
" Dustin?" He said slowly like I was an idiot.
" WHY DID YOU MOCK ME?" I screamed at him.
" Oh... that was you?" He said stupidly.
" Ugh." I hung up. " I'm going to kick his ** tomarrow." I murrmured.
Nicson shrugged and continued to eat. I slapped his hand when there was nothing but a piece of chicken on my plate." Leave some for me..." I whinned.
" Oh... sorry." He looked down sheeplishly.
" Hey, it's okay." I said. He looked up and smiled at me.
" Thanks." He leaned down and kissed me. I smiled. My phone broke the silence. " UGH! How popular are you?" He asked teasly.
" Must I remind you? Very little." I smiled and flipped open my phone. " Hello?" I asked.
" I'm coming over." Dustin said and hung up.
" That was weriod." I said.
" What happened?"
" Dustin just said that he was coming over and then he hung up on me."
" Oh." The doorbell rung. Yes, we live 2 houses apart from each other.
" Stay here." I got up and opened the front door. " Oh hey, Dus-"
" Hey, listen, I need to talk to you." He said hurridly. I survaed him. He looked nervous.
" What is it?" I asked.
