Crash Into Me Chapter 6
As we sat at our usual booth in the pizza reataurant, Viv's mouth was gaping
"So let me get this straight." She put her hands on the table, one on each side of her pizza slice occupied plate.
"Not only did you rear-end a cute guy, he turned out to be Aaron Carter??"
"Yep." I answered simply, about to
take a bite of my pizza before it was yanked out of my mouth by Viv. How RUDE! Okay, Stephanie Tanner moment over.
you're going out with him tomorrow night??"
"Yes!" I went to take another bite of pizza, looking up a Viv to make sure
it was okay. She waved her hand and I took a bite.
"And you asked him out." She sounded amazed at this
"Yes." I took a sip of soda. "But he asked me for my number."
She squealed, something I hadn't seen her
do since sophomore year. "You, are the luckiest bitch I know. You know that?"
"I'm lucky?? I wrecked my car!"
you got a date out of it!! With a hot guy!!"
"So??" I argued. Not my best argument. "What will my parents
She frowned. "I forgot about them."
"You forgot I have parents?? How do you think I got
here?? I fell from the sky?"
"No! I mean," she took a bite of her slice, not bothering to finish chewing it before
continuing, "I forgot you haven't told them yet." She took a sip of her soda. "You should call them right now."
I can hear it now: 'Mom? Dad? I wrecked my car. But the good news is I got a date!' Yeah Viv, good idea. I hope you have a
spare room at your house 'cause I won't go home after that conversation!"
"Just call them! Get it over with!
And at least if you tell them over the phone they can't kill you!"
"Yet! They can't kill me yet!"
won't kill you. Please, just call. You don't have to tell them about Aaron yet."
Again, yet. I still have to
tell them. "Fine..." I reached into my pocket and called my parents at home.
Ring. Ring. "Hello?" A voice answered.
"I just wanted to let you guys know I'm eating dinner out with Vivian."
you when you get home."
"Theres something else..."
"What? Is everything alright? Are you hurt?"
fine, its the VUE..." I sighed. "I got into an accident."
"But I'll get it fixed! I have the
money. It was my fault, so I'll get it fixed." Silence. "Please tell me you're not mad."
"I'm not mad, honey," she
finally answered. "I'm just glad you're okay. As long as you take care of it yourself, I have no reason to be mad."
"Do you think Dad'll be mad?"
"At first, but I'll talk to him about it. I'm proud of you for being responsible, Dayna."
Mom. I'll be home later."
"Now, was that so horrible?" Viv asked in
her "Ha Ha I Told You So" voice.
"It would have been if Dad answered the phone."
