‘Well it looks like I have a date for the dance” Bryony smiled with her arm round Matt’s waist.
“I’m glad after all that effort you didn’t laugh and say no” Drew smiled.
“I was going to give Autumn a ride home if you guys wanted to…” Drew hesitated “Talk for a while”.
“Sure” Matt said looking at me “Could you do me a huge favor”.
“Pack me a bag for tonight” Matt said “If you don’t mind picking her up to go to Bryony’s”.
“I’ll wait while she gets the stuff” Drew said winking at me.
“I was going to just go and hang with B for a while” he shrugged blushing a little.
“Wow you really like her don’t you” I smirked. Matt nodded.
“I know” I sighed. “Bret called before” Matt raised his eyebrows.
“You think he’ll turn up at the house” Matt said putting on his jacket and closing the locker door.
“It’s okay you want me to say something to Drew” I nodded “You and B got out to the cars”. I walked over to Bryony and linked her arm as we walked to the parking lot Matt caught Drew’s arm “I need to talk to you”. Drew turned round and looked at him.
“That’s why I was giving her a hug” Drew shrugged.
“She’s afraid that he might turn up at the house tonight”.
“Will you two hurry” Bryony shouted “it’s freezing out here”
“I’ll bring those things” I said. “You want me to get some ice cream as well”.
“Oooo that would be good” She smiled “Drew you need to drive to the store to pick up goodies for tonight”.
“It’s so cold tonight” I said pulling his jacket closer round me.
“The truck warms up quickly” he said as we drove away from school “How about we go grab some dinner after we get your stuff for tonight” he asked.
“Well duh” he said “we can get your things and then swing by mine to get my stuff and then go grab wings or something”.
“It didn’t come out like I meant” I laughed “I’d love to get something to eat”. We pulled into the driveway and went into the house Dad was sitting in the kitchen eating.
‘Yes sir” Drew nodded.
“Autumn, you guys have plans” Dad asked things were still very strained but at least he’d stopped looking at me the way he did.
“I thought maybe you me and Matt could have gone out for dinner” Dad said disappointedly.
“Sorry I’m picking up Matt’s things as well he’s already gone to Bryony’s” I shrugged “And I’m going for dinner with Drew first”.
“Come on you can wait in my room” I said walking down the hall Drew sat on the end of my bed as I grabbed some P.J’s from my dresser draw and put them in to a bag. “I’m sorry if that was a bit awkward” I said stopping what I was doing and turning to look at him.
“its okay” he said “it has to be hard after what you went through”.
‘That’s what friends are for” he shrugged.
“I’ll go get changed and then grab Matt’s stuff and we can leave” I smiled walking out to the bathroom Matt stood up to look at the photos on my dresser as my phone rang, he picked it up to see Bret’s name.
Bret hung up on Drew he closed my phone and put it back down on the dresser he ran his fingers through his hair her turned round and saw me leaning on the door frame with Matt’s things in my hands.
