Jayden pulled up to the dinner before turning to me. I raised my
eye brows at him. "What's up Jay?" I asked pulling my seat belt
off. He shook his head.
"Nothing, nothing at all. Did you finish your homework?" He
turned the truck off before get out.
"I just have a little bit of my calculus left." I sighed as we
made our way to the old dinner that my Grandma and Grandpa used
to go to all the time. It didn't really change since then Grandpa
says, but we still think it's awesome. Jayden held the door open
for me as we both walked in. The waitress smiled at us as she
"Colt and Jenna are at your regular booth kids." She smiled
before walking off to a family sitting at a table. I pulled
Jayden to our booth and rolled my eyes. Colt was face to face,
lips to lips, with my best friend Jenna.
"Would you two please get a room." I said in fake disgust. Colt
pulled his face from Jenna's and looked at me.
"Sugar, if you want some just ask." He smirked. I rolled my eyes
at him and slid into the other side of the booth from him.
"Sorry Honey but you aren't what I am looking for. You're just
too….cocky." I said as Jayden slid in next to me. "What do you
see in him Jenna?"
"There was just something about him that made me want him. I'm
just waiting for someone better." Colt looked at her. Jenna fit
Colt perfectly. She has brown hair that falls around her
shoulders happily. She is a small little 4 foot 5 inches, which
is so funny when she stands next to Colt, since he is about 6
feet. I still laugh at them some times. She evens him out. She
makes him, well a better person. I remember before her Colt was a
pain in our asses. He was the school player. Had a new girl every
week. He was cocky, annoying, flirted with everyone. But when
Jenna came last year he straightened himself out, for her. He
toned down the cocky, player. When someone asked him why he
stopped being a player all he would say is 'I am playing, playing
for my girl.' I like him more, as I can stay in a room with him
and not want to punch his face in.
"Oh really Jen, well I guess I'll just go over there and find me
some other girl." She turned her head to look at him. He knew she
was joking but, it still hurt him that she said that. He changed
her a lot. She let him be himself and not the cocky jock that
rules the school.
"Are you kidding me Colt? I was joking don't give me that look."
He looked at me as I looked down staying out of there little
argument, like I always do.
"Children, children, would you two ever stop fighting?" A voice
called making us all look over to the owner of it. Walking over
to us was my big brother Wyatt. He looked just like Dad. They had
the same brown hair and warm brown eyes. Both had the same
personality too which always made Mom laugh when Dad was away.
She said it was like having her spear at home ready to cheer her
up. Wyatt pulled out the chair at the end of the table and sat
"We aren't fighting Wy. We are just talking." Colt said wrapping
his arm around Jenna and pulling her to him.
"Sure, sure, and my sister had black hair." He said rolling his
eyes. I looked down at my light blonde hair. I hated it. It made
me seem like a bimbo. No one in my family had such a light color.
Sure my Mom and Grandpa, well Grandma told me he had cause right
now it's all gray, had blonde hair but it was dirty blonde. Mine,
well mine looks like I sat in the sun too long and dried my hair
out. It doesn't look dyed because it isn't but I still hate it. I
look so different than everyone else.
"Dude." Jayden said balling up a napkin and throwing it at
Wyatt's head. He pulled me to him. Wyatt put his hands up in
"Sorry, Bails. I didn't mean to diss your hair again. I shrugged.
I know he doesn't mean it but still.
"Whatever Wyatt, just order your food and don't be a dick."
Jayden said at him taking a sip of his soda. Jayden really was my
best friend. I wonder some times if he's gay because he always
knows what I want or need comfort, or tell my brother off for
being a dick. I love him…… I just wish he would love me like the
way I love him.
"Sure, whatever Jay. I'm sorry Bailey." He gave me one of Dad's
half smiles making me smile back at him. My brother might be an
idiot but he knows how to make me forgive him, no matter what.
The waitress came over giving us our food, and taking Wyatt's
"Do you need to baby sit Alycia and JJ tonight?" Colt asked as he
ate his burger. Jenna looked at him from where she was eating her
grilled cheese sandwich.
"When don't I have to baby sit them? It's like I have two kids
instead of my brother and sister." She rolled her eyes at him
stealing a French fly from his plate.
"True, true." He nodded taking a bite from her sandwich.
"Are we still going to play pool tomorrow?" I asked dipping my
chicken finger in honey mustard.
"Of course we always play pool on Wednesday nights." Jayden said
taking my chicken finger and shoving it in his mouth grinning. I
rolled my eyes, used to him eating everything he could get his
hands on, and I hate to admit it but I think it's kind of cute.
"Yeah, Mom is going to be home so I can go out without the
children. Colt your coming right?" Jenna asked looking up at him
from under her eyelashes.
"Of course. I wouldn't miss it for the world." He nodded going
back to eating. I shivered as a breeze blew over my bare arms.
Jayden pulled me to him wrapping his arm around me as he ate. I
snuggled into his side, loving the feeling of being close to him.
Here I was, deeply in love with my best friend. And he didn't
even know it……….
