Crash Into Me Chapter 10
~Ten Minutes Later~
"So, where are we going, again?" I asked.
We'd been driving around since we pulled out of the parking lot, and I still had no idea where Aaron was taking me.
we just drive around?" he smiled. "Its a nice night. Besides, I thought you didn't want it to end."
"I don't, but I
don't exactly feel comfortable not knowing where I'm being taken."
"Would you feel any better if I said I had no idea
where we were gonna go?"
'We've tried so hard to understand,
but we can't
We held the world out in our hands and you ran away'
I cringed as the blinking of my cellphone
in my hoodie pocket brought our oddly flirtatious conversation to a halt. I sighed, looking at Aaron as I pulled my phone
out of my pocket, and ignoring the Caller ID as I flipped my phone open. How fucking rude is this? In the middle of what
seems to be the best date I've ever been on, and someone's calling me. This better be important. "Yes?" I answered,
"Hey Dayna." Dave answered. I hope he could sense the urge to strangle him through the phone I was holding
"I can't talk right now, Dave." I answered simply, giving Aaron an apologetic look. He didn't seem too offended.
blowing me off already! Haven't I suffered enough??" Dave exclaimed, a whiny tone to his voice.
"I really can't
talk right now, and no, you haven't suffered enough. I think an eternity of that will suffice." I stated flatly. I could tell
Aaron was holding back laughter at how casually I'd added my last comment.
"Come on, Day."
"What part of 'I
can't talk right now' is so damn difficult for you to process??" I exclaimed, continuing before he had the chance to whine
again. "I have nothing more to say to you than what I said yesterday. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm on a date right now."
A date? D-" I flipped my phone shut before he could say another word and dig himself in deeper. This is the LAST straw.
am so sorry about that." I said after a few moments of silence.
"Don't worry about it." Aaron smiled. "So, was
that the guy you told me about the other day?"
I nodded as he glanced at me, quickly looking back at the road. "Yep,
that was the moron. I can't believe he just did that."
"Maybe I can deal with him the next time he calls you."
He made a right turn, and I peered out the window, trying to see if I could figure out where he was headed.
All I could
see were storefronts and other business-type buildings. At least he finally figured out where we're going. I hope...
"I don't- You don't have to, I think I can handle him. Thanks anyway."
"If you're sure..."
"How would you deal
with him anyway?" I asked. Its not like he knew Dave, but I could tell he was probably stronger than Dave was, I remembered
how much Dave complained when he moved his stuff into his basement room at his house.
"Guess you won't get to find
out..." A smirk came across his face as he made a left turn.
My phone began to vibrate and blink in my pocket as the
familiar tune once again played, and I smirked back as I looked at the Caller ID. "Maybe I will..." I flipped the phone open
and handed it to him.
"Hello?" Aaron answered. I laughed to myself at how tough Aaron was trying to sound.
the hell is this?" I heard Dave ask.
"You should know! You called me!"
"No I didn't!"
"Then how come
you're on the phone with me!" Aaron was holding back laughter as well. I got the feeling this wasn't the first time he'd messed
with someone over the phone...
"I called my friend Dayna." Dave stated. "Is she there?"
"Dayna? I don't know
a Dayna, kid." Aaron winked at me as the car came to a stop. I looked around, but it was pretty dark. There were a few lights
around, but all I could tell was that we were in a parking lot.
"This is her number. She has to be there." I
could tell Dave was totally lost right now.
"No she doesn't! How do you know I didn't steal her phone from her?"
JUST talked to her! Three minutes ago! She answered her phone." My self-control was about to give out: I was
on the verge of a burst of hysterical laughter.
"A lot can happen in three minutes. But, you're shouting now, and I
don't answer questions asked by angry people." Aaron said nonchalantly. "Especially stupid questions. Call back when
you get your Brain, Scarecrow." Aaron closed the lid to my phone and handed it back to me.
The laughter we were holding
back came flooding out. "I can't believe you did that." I managed to say as I shut off my phone.
"He made that way
too easy." Aaron opened his door and walked around to my door, opening it and helping me out. I looked around, and still all
I could see was a parking lot.
"Where are we?" I asked. We walked hand in hand to a building close by and stopped outside
the lobby doors.
"Well, you wanted to know what I've been up to all these years, right?" He held the door open and
motioned for me to walk in before him, which I did after silently nodding at him.
