“I’m going to kill him!” Josh yelled. I put my hands to his chest.
“Josh, no you’re not. Need I remind you that nothing has actually happened?” I pointed out.
“Might as well have.” he muttered. “But you’re…grounded. Yeah, that’s another rule. No sex while you’re grounded.”
I bit my lip to keep from smiling. “Look I’ll do the best I can. But I wanted to tell you before anything happened.”
“Yeah, I know. Okay, come on. We’ve got to go shopping.”
“For what?” I asked as he took my hand.
“A lot of things. Condoms, Plan B, ovulating tests. You are not getting pregnant on my watch.”
“Do we have to? Are you really going to make me go condom shopping with you?” I asked, frowning at the thought.
I cleared my throat. “Shouldn’t Nicholas come with us for, uh, size.”
He opened his mouth, then shut it again. I had a feeling he was going to say that he knew his size, but he obviously didn’t want to say that out loud. “Um yeah, you’re right.”
“This is so weird. Why don’t you and Nicholas go and I’ll stay here and…be grounded?”
Josh thought it over. “Yeah, I guess that’s a better idea.”
“Just don’t kill him okay?” I said, smiling prettily at him.
