"Alright, alright" his man moved across the screen.
"Okay, you don't have to yell" Vinny said.
I paused the game to look out the window, seeing, there was indeed a moving truck. A man stepped out of the truck, opening the door for the passenger, who was a young woman around her late twenties. Next the back door opened and long legs stepped down. My eyes traveled up the small body to find a cute girl. Her hair was long and blonde, semi-wavy. She had a suave body and big blue eyes. Nicolette came running down the stairs, breaking all of our trances.
"I didn't know Ness was here" Madison winked.
She blushed, "Hello Madison."
"And hellllloooo Vanessa"
"No, dude she was smiling at me" Vin told him.
"Um, guys I waved at her, I'm pretty sure she was smiling at me."
"Whatever, let's get back to the game."
"Mikey, I finished the brownies and they're ready to go" Nicolette said from the kitchen.
"Oh wow, thank you so much" he said, taking the box of brownies, "Come on in."
"This is my wife, Laura. Laura this is-" he looked at us, for he didn't know our names.
"Nicolette and Michael" Nicolette told him.
"Right. This is Nicolette and Michael."
"Nice to meet you, m'am" I said holding out my hand for her to shake.
She shook my hand, smiling, "Nice to meet you both" then she shook Nicolette's.
"Where's Alyssa?" The man asked.
"She's in her room, I think she's hanging up pictures."
"Alyssa! Please come down here" he yelled.
"We have company" he told her.
"Hi, nice to meet you guys" she spoke softly, shaking both of our hands.
"You too!" Nicolette squealed.
She nodded, "If that's cool with you guys."
"Totally" Nic said.
"We could go to the park" I suggested.
"That sounds cool" Alyssa said.
"No, that's my dad and my step mom."
"Ohh, what happened to your mom?" I asked, Nicolette hit me, indicating that I was being rude.
"No, it's fine" she laughed, "My mom died when I was six."
"I'm so sorry" I said.
I smiled, "Nah. Mikey or Spikes. Either one."
"Spikes?" she questioned.
"My hair's usually spiked up."
She nodded, "Ahh"
"Yeah. What grade are you going into?"
I nodded, "You're 15?"
"Yeah, and you're.."
"Sixteen" I told her before she could guess.
She laughed, "I was going to guess that."
"Do you wanna get ice cream?" I asked.
"I didn't bring any money."
"Oh no, I'd feel bad. It's okay, you can get ice cream. I won't have anything."
"Nah, I'll pay. It's only ice cream."
"Ugh, fine! But, I will be paying you back" she said defeated.
I winked, "Mhm."
Getting to the ice cream parlor only took five minutes. We walked and talked about random things. I told her I wanted her to meet my friends and she agreed, since she had none here yet. I told her how Madison is in her grade, so he could help her out.
"Could I have a double scoop of Chocolate Chip in a cone" I asked.
"And for the lady?"
"I'll have one scoop of Mint Cookie Crumble in a cone please" she asked.
"I'll be back with both of those."
I looked to her, "You should have gotten a double scoop"
"That costs more, I'm not gonna take advantage of your money" she smiled.
"And here are your ice creams" he said handing them to us, "That'll be $7.86"
I handed him a $10, "Keep the change"
"Thank you Spikes, enjoy your Summer."
"You too, Mr. Valsquez."
"The ice cream and the day. I didn't think I was going to get any friends this Summer."
"It's no problem."
"Hey, you were the one who was looking at me through their window, yeah?"
I laughed, "Yeah. My friends saw the moving van and we looked to see who it was."
"Yeah, you waved" she laughed.
"Just to get this straight, you did smile back at me right?"
"Correct" she told me.
"Score" I said raising my fist to the air.
She laughed, "Well I should get going. Thank you, again."
"I'd like to hangout with you tomorrow" I told her.
"I'd like that, too. But, I must get your number so I know when to wake up."
"I'll text you."
