I hung up the phone and sighed; I got up and went into the kitchen.
“What time are you going to be back tonight” Mom asked pouring herself a drink.
“I don’t know” I said “There’s no school so whenever I get in I guess”.
“You might be staying at Tony’s then I take it” she said slopping her
drink over the counter.
“You really don’t pay much attention to my life do you” I shrugged as
the front door opened and Luke walked in. her eyes left the glass and
she smiled at Luke.
“How’s my favorite Nephew” she asked.
“I’m good thanks” he nodded “Mom said why don’t you go round tonight,
Dad’s out of town”. Mom nodded grabbing her keys.
“I think I will” she nodded. “Say hi to Tony for me honey” and she
breezed out of the door.
“Did I miss something” Luke said sitting on a stool.
“No, she’s just being her usual all about me self” I moaned, “Why
can’t I live at your house with the normal side of the family” he
laughed at me. “Come on lets go eat” we walked out and got in his car.
“So she thinks you and Tony are still together”.
“Yep she was even in the room last night when I shredded all his
things and still it goes over her head” I ran my hands through my
‘You Okay” Luke said pulling up at the restaurant, I nodded.
“I’ll survive, I got you guys” I grinned he put his arm round my
shoulder as a few of the others pulled up.
“Did you find out who the mystery guy was Greg” Greg asked as we walked inside.
“No I called her and it went to voice mail” I shrugged. I looked out
of the window as she pulled up in a black truck with the guy from
before. They walked in and came over to us.
“Be fore you all started to moan about me ditching the game this is
Cameron” she grinned, Luke nudged me.
“At least we know he has a name” I nodded.
“Cam this is Justin, Ryan, Greg, Sarah, Meg, Luke and that’s’ Mandy”
Channing said introducing us all to him.
“I met Mandy before” he grinned I looked down and started to laugh “in
the parking lot”. They sat down with us, Ryan looked at Cam.
“So where do you know Channing from” he asked.
“She’s my cousin” Cam smiled “I get to come up here for school from Virginia”.
“So you’re going to be coming to our school” Sarah said making puppy
dog eyes at Cam.
“No I just graduated I’ll be going to college in the fall” He smiled
at her, “and living at Channing’s”. I got up and went to the bathroom;
Channing got up and followed me.
“Are you mad at me for something” she asked.
“No, don’t be silly” I smiled, “Since when do you have a cousin as hot
as him” I giggled.
“You’ve seen the pictures of him in my room” she said redoing her lip
gloss. “He’s the one dressed up like Dracula”.
“Jeez, how can anyone tell he’s hot with all that make up he had on” I
laughed. “I thought you’d got a secret guy”.
“Yeah like I could get away with that with you guys around” she sighed.
“Oh I forgot you had a crush on………” the door opened and Sarah walked in.
“Channing you have to fix me up on a date with Cam he’s making me go
weak at the knees” she giggled, I rolled my eyes. She looked at me
“What you have your own college guy”.
“Not any more I don’t, he was an ass” I shrugged opening the door and
walking back out to the table
I sat back down and started talking to Luke and Justin I looked at
Cameron who was talking with Greg and Meg he turned his head and
smiled at me, I felt myself go red he said something to Greg and got
up and sat in the chair that was next to me that Channing had been sat
“So it’s nice to finally meet you properly” he smiled his eyes
glinting, “With your pants on this time” Luke snorted with laughter I
smacked him round the head.
“Ow” he moaned.
“Gibbs slap doesn’t count” I hissed I looked back at Cam who was
laughing. “Like I told you this afternoon I honestly thought there
wasn’t anyone around” I shrugged holding up my hands as Channing and
Sarah sat back down.
“Oh Come on Mandy that’s cr*ap” Ryan smirked leaning on the table, I
looked at him “You’ve changed more than once in the parking lot”
everyone looked at me.
“You swore you wouldn’t bring that up” I said dying laughing.
“Oh I thought I was just becoming a regular thing that’s all” He
laughed, Luke looked at Channing.
“Do you have any idea what he’s on about” she shook her head.
“Come on you have to tell us the rest of the story” Cam smiled resting
his arm over the back of my chair. I buried my face in my jacket my
shoulders shaking with laughter.
“Okay after homecoming we all had the party in the Barn at Justin’s”
Ryan smiled “I went with Mandy to get some munchies” I groaned.
“Hang on Ryan came back wearing shorts and he left with jeans on” Meg
said. I poked my head from under my jacket.
“How the hell do you remember things like that” I asked, she shrugged.
“Photo memory, I guess” she grinned. “You two didn’t….” I buried my
face under Luke’s arm as Ryan went red.
“No …well… no” he stuttered. “We went in the store and Mandy caught
the pocket of her jeans on a piece of wood and ripped her as*s out of
“So that’s why you won’t go in there” Channing laughed. I sat back up
Cam was still smirking at me. Ryan looked at me.
“You might as well finish the story” I sighed wiping the tears from my
eyes “and I don’t think I can be any more embarrassed”.
“Mandy flashed almost everyone in the store, so I had to walk so close
behind her she should have stood on my feet, to try to cover up her
a*ss and pink thong”.
‘Okay I think I’ve just become more embarrassed” I sighed. Everyone
was now in stitches.
“Okay so we make it out to the car the only spare things I have is my
soccer stuff which is too big for Mandy” Ryan grinned “so I gave her
my jeans because they had a belt with them” he nodded.
“So you both stripped down to your underwear in the middle of the
stores’ parking lot” Greg laughed.
“Pretty much” Ryan sighed. Cam looked at me.
“I think I see a pattern starting” he said narrowing his baby blues at me.
“Okay I’ve done it twice” I admitted. “But that’s it” I started to
laugh. I saw Sarah was resting her hand on the inside of Cam’s thigh,
I looked away.
“Okay talking of the night we we’re all in the barn” Justin smiled,
“You guys want to head over there now you can all crash if you want”.
“Fine as long as someone else goes to the store” I smiled standing up
Cam was still looking at me even though Sarah was trying to get his
“We’ll go to the store” Greg said taking Meg by the hand as we went
out to the parking lot, I grabbed Ryan and pulled him to one side.
“Thanks I thought you we’re a friend” I smiled.
“Oh come on the story is hysterical” He shrugged. Channing tugged my jacket.
“If you guys basically raced out of the store why did it take you 2
hours” She asked. I looked at Ryan and he looked at me.
“We’ll meet you at Justin’s” I said quickly jumping into Luke’s truck
and closing the door Luke got in.
“Well I think I just learned more about you in the past hour than I
needed to know” He smirked. I slid down in the seat and let out a
“Yeah more than I needed you to know as well” I said.
“Did you see Sarah was all over Cameron” Luke said changing the
subject, I nodded.
“They’d look cute together” I shrugged looking out of the window.
“The way you were looking at him I half expected you to make a move” Luke said.
“I think I’ve had it with college guys after the last one” I sighed.
“And you make it sound like I’m always with a guy”.
“You are” he smirked. “You just have way more guy friends then girls”.
“Nice job covering your comment” I smiled as we pulled up outside the
barn that Justin’s parents had converted in to a place for us all to
hang out. We went inside Justin turned on the music and brought out
the controllers for the Wii as Channing and Cam came in. I walked over
to the fridge and grabbed a soda.
“Er.. not like you to skip out when I ask about a guy” Channing
whispered taking the soda from me.
“It was nothing I swear, and it was like 8 month ago” I shrugged.
“Yeah but you and Ryan” she said wrinkling her nose “He’s been one of
your best friends like forever”.
“I know that’s why nothing came of it” I said grabbing, her hand and
pulling her outside. “And that’s why we are still friends, it was a
big mistake that happened we both agree on that” the door opened and
Ryan put his head out
“Mandy it’s your turn, on the Wii” he looked from me to Channing.
“Oooo this looks intense” he turned to go back inside.
“Ryan” I said he turned round and looked at me. “Homecoming night what was it”.
“A mistake” he said “why”.
“I’m trying to explain that here, after you opened the whole tin of
worms” I hissed..
“Sorry” he sighed, he looked at Channing “we both got a bit carried
away, that’s all, it could have spoilt our friendship but it didn’t”
he walked inside and closed the door.
“Well I guess that told me” Channing smiled “you could have told me though”.
“I know” I smiled hugging her, we walked back inside.
