Chapter 12

 

A'liyah- How the hell did you get my number I said to Colby. I know I didn't give him my number, and I don't know anyone else that would've given him my number either. "I've got my ways, anyways I wanted to call and see how you were doing since our little talk yesterday, I also wanted to say I'm sorry. "I know I was being a dick the other day to you, I was just stressed out, I"m sorry. I was so confused, and suprised. I never expected him to apologize to me, or remember our talk from yesterday, just remembering it had me smiling. "You still there he said. "Yeah I'm still here, I'm just suprised that you apologized. I just didn't see you as the apologizing type". "Wow, is that how you think of me All's, damn I must be terrible then he laughed. His laughter sounded like heaven, and him calling me All's was weird, but in a good way. No one ever called me All's before, usually it's just A'liyah, and Melissa is the only person to call me Ali so hearing a new nickname was weird, but funny. "No, you're not that bad, just crazy I laughed, and he did too. 

 

"Whatever All's you're just as crazy, anyways the real reason I called was to ask if maybe you wanted to hang out today?". "I don't really have anything to do today, and I'm bored." He wants me to hang out with him, I have a problem just hanging around him, but full on hanging out with him seems crazy. But maybe if I hang out with him, we could be friends. We could just talk, and maybe it would be nice. "Wait, isn't today a school day, shit I'm going to be late. All I heard in my ear was laughter. "No, today's saturday. "If it was a school day. I wouldn't have called you in the first place." "Where's your head today he laughed some more. That explains why mom, didn't wake me up or say that we only have a few minutes before we have to leave. I can't believe it's the weekend already, time has gotten away from me. "Sure, yeah I'll hang out with you today, where do you wanna meet at"?. "We can meet at the school, and then we could go somewhere after that." "Oh okay, well what time do you wanna meet I asked him"? "How about 12:00, is that good for you?. "I looked at the time and I saw that it was 11:10, shit that meant I had to shower and get dressed fast, and my hair I was going to have to manage down. It would definetely take more than and hour to get ready, but I wasn't going to put it off.

 

"Yeah, 12:00 is great" I told him. It was going to be a challenge but I was going to have to pull it off in time. "Great, I'll see you then, Oh and All's wear something nice, something that shows that body of yours, bye. Hearing him say that had me smiling, and grinning like no tommorow. I got up out of bed and went to my mom's room. I opened the door and poked my head inside. "Good morning mom, I'm doing a project for school and I have to go to the library and do some research, I have to go by 12:00. I knew if I had told her I was hanging out with Colby she would never let me go. Telling her about the project wasn't a complete lie, it was just a little tiny lie. "Good morning sweetie, how come you didn't tell me about it yesterday?". "I forgot about it, I was going to tell you before went to the mall I'm sorry. "It's ok, but next time A'liyah you need to tell me before hand. I'll take you this morning because I have to pick up your brother as well, just give me a minute to get up okay." "Okay mom, I'm going to get ready. I shut her door back and went to go and take a shower, when I got out I go into my closet and pull out the outfits I brought yesterday. I decide to wear those jeans and pink crossover shirt because of the way it hugged my body. After I get dressed, I go to the mirror and do my hair. I decide to put it in a bun, and leave out some curls here and there.

Satisfied with my look, I get my chapstick and put some on. I grab my phone and put it in my back pocket. I walk back over to my closet and put on the new sandals I bought yesterday, the color matches my shirt perfectly, after I put them on I walk downstairs. I see my mom sitting on the couch going over some work papers. When she sees me she looks up and smiles "Hey honey, you look gorgeous this morning, is that one of the outfits you got yesterday? "Yeah, I really like it. And I mean it too, I really do like it. "And you look great it in, ready to go? "Yeah, I'm ready. Me and my mom pad into the car, and we get to the school in about ten minutes. 

I open the door and I'm ready to get out, but my mom stops me. "Now Ali, today when I come and pick you up I want you standing in this parking lot right here. No excuses. If you're not standing here, I wont hesitate to get out and find you. I look at my mom, and I can tell she's not joking. "I promise mom, I'll be standing here when you pick me up. "Thank you, and what time do I need to pick you up?". Shit, Colby didn't tell me what time it was going to be over.I had to make up a good time, or she wouldn't buy it. "5:00 o'clock , I have to do my research and get the librarian to give me all the nesccesary items for the project. "5:00 o'clock, she sounded shocked. "Whatever project this is, I wanna see it when it's finished. "I will mom I promise love you bye. I shut the door and watched her drive away.

 

Hanging out with Colby was already proving to be more than I can handle, I just lied to my mom which I hate doing, and I just said I was going to be here for five hours. What if dosen't want to hang out for five hours, what if somehing goes wrong. So many problems were already arising, and I hadn't even hung out with him yet.
