Chapter 7 - Feed My Nightmare!
I drove home listening to When It Rains by Paramore. This summer was going to suck so fucking much! I could be going out and vandalizing houses with my friends, but no, I have to be stranded on some god forsaken area with some kid I don't know. I angrily tapped my fingers. Finally I arrived to my house. They're seemed to be a buzz of activity going on. They're were workers everywhere! Swarming around our house like vultures to a kill. I saw my mom directing them in the yard. "Dude, hey Mom what the fuck is with all the damn activity?" I spat at her. You probably still think I'm still pissed about the whole summer thing. You are 100% correct.
She sighed. "Jay, sweetie, the roof needs repairing before we leave. Anyhow why are you out so damn early?" she asked curiously. "Mmmm.... well I started a fight in the cafeteria, got in major trouble, pissed off the Prince of pricks, and then everyone skipped out so we decided to join them." She eyed me disaprovingly. "doesn't matter, could you go pack up? we're leaving early tomorrow morning." "No shit. Who the hells is gonna be my company while you parents are off hopped up on the booze?" She stared at me icily "Jamie, I know your upset, but could you please just accept it? And for your info we will be out a lot, but that doesn't mean you can't go around. Also we will NOT be 'hopped up on booze' as you crudely put it. I would appreciate it a lot if you just calm down and be nice. Also we're going to San Diego, California. It's gonna be for a month or two, and I believe Tina's son is called Jack..Jake..." "Jayden" I whispered. her face brightened. "Yep thats it, you know him?' "He's the ass that tortures me at school, got me banned from lace's, and who will most likely die on this trip" my voice rising higher with each word. I cracked my knuckles angrily. "I'm gonna go pack"
I walked inside. The cool quiet interior caressed my skin. It was refreshing after the blistering heat. I walked up to room and opened the door. I walked over to my closet and opened the door. I sighed and dragged my three suitcases out. One I filled with shirts, shorts, leather clothes, boots, and accesories. Inside the second one I packed some more leather, swimsuits, shorts, jeans, shirts, and dresses. That filled up about half. The other half I filled with my nunchucks, yoga stuff, my sparring gear, throwing knifes, and boxing gears. incase yor wondering , in the 16 years I've been alived I've pretty much done every sport. In the last suitcase I packed my tai kwon doa gear, swords, pistol, and my ninja needle spike set. all done I set them upwards by my door. lastly I brought out my hand made, traditional, Japanese sword. I took it out of my case and slowly went through my poses. Then i put it back in the case and on my suitcase.
Some girls want to be a vet others want to be a model, me? I wanted to be A.) in the army or B.) a history teacher. C.) I also might want to be like a arms specialist. When my Dad asked that I could defend myself, I kinda went overboard. I took everything from ninja needles, to ancient mace tehcniques. I had a wide vairety of weapons. I actually really enjoyed learning all the tehcniques and weapons. Still I was a sort of weapons freak. So, there you have it I'm a freak, a messed up freak. The worst part is none of my friends know. I mean I'm just afraid they'll abandon me. Back when I told one guy he totally bailed on me. Called me a creep. I just don't want to go through that again.
The phone rang, and snapped me out of my trance. I skidded down stairs and grabbed my phone hoping for my friends.
Jayden: Hey there buddy!
Me: What do you want?
Jayden: I'm hurt I just called to see how my bestest buddy was doing!
me: Uhh Huh...
Jayden: So did you hear we're going to spend the summer together?
Me: Correction we're going to spend the summer together in the same house. I will be in my room most of the time and you will be out of my way!
Jayden: Thats no way to treat a friend!
Me: In what world are you my friend?
Jayden: Chill I was just joking. Uptight much? Meet me at Lacy's in 5?
Me: Fine, but this better be important!
I clicked off and asked myself what I was doing. It won't hurt just to talk! Yea but I'll probably get banned! Doesn't matter you're going to leave soon anyhow, I gave up arguing with myself and went upstairs. I took off my leather jacket, boots, and jeans. Instead I put on a dark blue tee and some white knee shorts. I grabbed my flipflops, phone, and keys. I walked past the 'construction' and got in my car. Turned it on and backed out of the driveway. I drove over to lacy's and parked nearby. Finally, I went in and grabbed my table. My waiter, Frank, came over and I ordered a frapp. he nodded smiled and walked away. I ignored his and anyone elses stare, I waiting a couple minutes, then the door opened, I whipped my head around and saw the one and only ASS. I waved him over grimly, my face stony. Frank brought my frapp and I went for the whip cream. he ordered a coffee and I looked at him. "So, what you want to talk about" I asked him slurping my drink. "I thought we could just talk, as friends" I stared at him and burst out laughing. Was this dude serious? 'Oh god! are you freaking serious?! I beat you up at least an hour ago and know you want to be friends?!" this caused another burst of rascious laughter. "look, Jayden, I hate you, you hate me, I don't even see why I'm here. I thought you might have something important to say." I slurped my drink , bringing my legs up to rest on the bench. he stared at me for a moment. 'your not wearing black or leather today" I snorted. " yea 'cause its hot as hell out there. Hate to break it but leather is really hot, great for winter, not so much for summer." he just smiled smugly.
"So what did you pack" he asked after a brief pause. "I-" started but then a bimbo came over and asked fro his number. Seriously?! In the middle of our conversation. he just smiled flirtatiously and gave her a piece of paper that happen to be in his pocket. she giggled. I rolled my eyes. Of course she wouldn't leave, and Jayden didn't seem to mind. "Okay, love birds let me through I don't want to get in the middle of this." I heaved my sleepy body up and towards Lacy's office. "What up lace-a-doodle?' I asked her she smiled and came up for a hug. "nothing much chica how about you?" I shrugged. 'Back with the ass who happens to be flirting with some retard. I left and came to greet thee" she laughed at my use of old english. "well girl get out there and whoop his ass!" " I laughed. "Oh i get it! Don't want me around, s'okay I understand." I teased. she clutched her heart and smiled at me. she swatted me out of her office. Before I left I snagged a cookie though.
I mozied on out, while munching on my cookie. I came over and the bitch had left. Still, Jaydens hair was tussled and messy. I finished my cookie and fished another out from my pocket, then sat down. "so..' I said nibbling on the side. "Hmm.... lets see.... I packed one suitcase and a half of clothes. Then I packed one suitacase and a half full of training... materials." "see thats something I don't get about you." he told me while flattening his hair. "Whats up with you and all your weapons, and you've liked played every sport." 'Who told you that?!" I asked him quickly. " Well lets just say friends talk and I hear."he told me smugly "shit" I cursed. " You shouldn't cuss! its such bad manners!" he said teasingly waving a finger back and forth. I rolled my eyes "lets not be any more of an ass then you already are."I told him. "look I'll give 'friends a shot for the trip, but if you piss me off they'll be hell to sell." he nodded serious.
"Ok so are any of your family members alergic to cats?' I asked him? "ummm..no.why?" he said looking confused. I clapped my hands gleefullly "great! this way I don't have to find anyone to feed my nightmare!" he looked even more confused "your WHAT?" "My nightmare, you know my cat. I have a little black cat named nightmare." "oh" he said looking relieved. I giggled. he just looked like a plain retard.
I started gulping my frapp down and he just played with his coffee mug. He contemplated me for a moment. "you know....you seem just like a guy, except deeper." he told me tilting his head. "what?"I asked bewildered. "I mean, your all tough and your chill with the dudes, but your more emotional." I tightened my grip on my mug and looked at the ground. "your crossing dangerous territory, buddy." I spat at him. he stared seriously at me. "your different, your tougher for a reason, what is th-" " Why do even give a SHIT?!! Just mind your own fucking buisness!" I snapped at him. "We're 'friends' fro about 25 minutes and already I'm hating you! just keep your nose out of my buisness!"i grabbed my frabb, drained it and stormed out, ignoring the glances i was getting.
I slammed the door to my car. I huffed out a breath. Who the hell does he think he is?! He knows nothing about me! I was distracted by a solid knock on my window. I turned my head to one embarrased ass. "What do you want" I asked tightly. "Ummm.. well I walked here soo I was wondering if you could give me a ride." I blew out a sigh. 'Fine get in" 'Thanks" he told me. He hopped in and I turned the car on. 'Sorry' he told me stiffly. I glanced at him sharply. 'Just mind your own buisness and well get together just peachy" The rest of the car ride was silent except for my paramore cd, which was now playing All I Wanted. Dmn his house was far away. Finally, I dropped him off at his house then backed out.
I went home. It was getting dark. I got home and the house was its usual quiet self. The tiles on the roof were new and crisp. I sighed again and walked up to my room. What game was I playing? he's just an ass I reminded myself. Still, I didn't have many friends and I really didn't want trouble on the trip. I got changed and jumped in bed. i turned off the lights and went to sleep.
