Crash Into Me Chapter 8
~Around 6 P.M. That Night~
I walked into my closet and pulled out a
black tank top with silver rose graphics on it. I held it up to myself and walked out to look in the full-length mirror I
had by the door. Viv walked up behind me and scanned me up and down.
"I think it looks good." She stated.
trashy or anything?" I asked, still looking at the shirt, making sure it looked alright with the jeans I was wearing.
Not at all." She plopped down on my bed. "Wheres he taking you, anyway?"
"I don't know," I sat down on my bed across
from her and pulled the shirt over my head, "He didn't say. I don't wanna get too dressed up, but I don't wanna look
like a moron."
"Its a first date, not an engagement party."
"I know..." I said, trailing off as I heard
a knock at my door. "Who is it?"
"Mom!" the person on the other side of the door called.
"Come in!" She opened
the door and smiled as she looked at Viv and I sitting on my bed. There were shirts scattered all over it.
she leaned in the doorway, that "I know you're up to something" expression on her face, "Whos the boy?"
I looked at
Viv, who sighed and nodded. "His name is Aaron..." I started.
"Where'd you meet him..." she asked as if she'd been
through this routine several times before.
"Our cars met first." She laughed.
"You're going out with the boy
you got in the accident with?"
I nodded. "Hes really cool, Mom..."
"I'm sure he is."
"And really cute!"
"I'm sure he- wait, I thought you said you were alone when you had the accident?"
"I was." I answered.
how did she-"
"His last name is Carter." I interrupted. The sudden change in expression - confusion to a smirk - told
me she figured out who he was. "I didn't even know it was him at first."
She just stood there and smiled for a moment
before standing up in the doorway. "Well, you look great, honey." She walked over and put her arm around me. "I hope you have
a great time, and be home by curfew." She walked back to the door. "See ya, girls..." Mom walked out of the room, and Viv
and I smiled at each other for a moment before bursting out laughing.
"So... What are you gonna do with your makeup?"
Viv asked, picking up the mirror off the bed.
