Hey guys sorry i havent posted for a while but as bo says "someone very special to me just passed" my nana died so i really didnt want to post a story or do anything really but now im back and with a vengence, so get ready for a new chapter :D
I found myself again sat in a car between Dalton and Nick but this time we were in Blake's car which was so much roomier so thank god no more injured legs from the amount of times Dalton had kicked me in wade's stupidly small car.
At the moment we were stuck in traffic that looked never ending and it was Boiling outside which I think got everyone irritated and I'm definitely considering getting out of the car and walking. Maybe.
"Dude, it's over" Nick told Blake from the back seat, he was just as frustrated as the rest of us plus I don't think nick wants to see the game anyway.
"It'll move" Blake replied with hope in his voice but I think we'll need a little more than Blake's hope to get us to the game in time.
"It's not moving" Paige moaned at Blake stating the obvious of which we could all see.
"We'll make the second half" Blake said to us trying to convince us that if we wait we might get to see the end of the game that none of us except Blake care about.
"I'm not sitting in this" I told him sitting forward in my chair and moving my head next to him so he could hear my over Paige's whining.
"What do you want me to do?" he said aggravated but not snapping at me, he knows that it wouldn't do him any good.
"We have to go back"
"I'm not missing this game" Blake said strongly to us.
"Turn the car around, okay?"
"They're waiting for us already".
I laughed when Blake started to hit his head against the steering wheel in annoyance. After 10 more minutes Blake finally turned the car around so we could head back to the camp, then for Blake and Paige to pick wade and Carly up.
"Hey Paige you'd better call Carly and tell her that we're coming back" I said to Paige, leaning against nicks shoulder and with my feet in Daltons lap *yes I don't have my seat belt on sue me*
"Why can't you do it" she said turning to look at me and raising her eyebrow wondering why I was ordering her to call our best friend.
"1. Because im comfy and 2. Because I told you to do it" I sarcastically smiled at her showing all my teeth.
"Ok bitch" she said rolling her blue eyes at me in joking manner whilst pulling out her cell phone and started to call Carly
"Thanks hoe" I replied with another shit eating grin feeling nick starting to rub little circles in my arms and also feeling Dalton tapping some kind of beat on my Boots to which I raised my eyebrow at him but a smile on my face, I could never be really angry with Dalton no matter what he did.
"Hey, it's me. We're heading back" im guessing Carly answered...
"Traffic. Did you get that fan belt thing or whatever?"
"So where do you want us to pick you up?"
"We'll camp in the same place as yesterday, but away from that pet cemetery"
Paige put away her cell and turned to Blake "they haven't got the fan belt thing but they said to just head up the road that we got off at for the campsite but it's washed out at the end so they'll meet us there".
"Wait so they don't even have the stupid fan belt yet?" I asked her frustratedly blowing my bangs out my face getting angrier by the second.
"No, but hopefully they'll have it by the time we get there don't worry" Paige said back to me a little frustrated herself but looked at me for a minute before saying "just calm down" I presume that it was supposed to comfort me in some way seeing as she didn't say it in a patronizing tone.
I just 'hummed' and put my head back against nicks shoulder and closed my eyes hoping that if I fall asleep we'll be there when I wake up.
Carly's P.o.v [Before the phone call]
We finally made it to the garage in Ambrose which I didn't think actually existed so I kinda feel guilty for being suspicious of that guy but then again he was really freaky so I don't feel that bad.
"Hello?" wade shouted through the garage shutter door and waited for a reply. When I didn't hear one I went to the front door but there was no-one in sight.
"Hello?" I said opening the door of the garage. I looked at wade who was looking through the windows on the shutter door. "You see anybody?"
"No, nobody" he said to me shaking his head. I felt my phone vibrate and ring in my pocket and pulled it out to see Paige's name on the caller i.d.
"Hello?" I answered walking away from the door.
"Really? Why? What happened?"
"No. There's no one at the gas station. I don't know where we're going right now".
"Why don't you just head up the road that we got off at for the campsite? It's washed out at the end. Call us when you get there we'll meet you" I told her walking further away from the garage and up the empty streets of Ambrose.
"Cool. See you then" I ended the call.
"Hey there's that house of wax" wade said pointing out the creepy looking building that seemed to be old.
"Wade, what about the fan belt" I asked him trying to distract his attentions from the freaky building back to the reason we hitchhiked with a random man whom I thought was trying to either kill us or kidnap us.
Wade stopped in front of me "well there's no one at the station" he pointed out to me, to think about it there's no one anywhere.
I looked around again spotting a church to my left "why don't we ask someone in the church?"
"All right. All Right" he replied as we walked to the church that also seemed old looking. We walked in the church and stopped at we saw in front of us. There was a service going on and we had just walked right in the middle of the priest saying his prayers, I saw a man kneeling turn round and look at us and the priest gave us a look for interrupting a personal thing.
"Oh! Um we should go" I whispered to wade who just replied with a quiet yeah. We walked out of the church quietly feeling bad for what we had just walked in on.
"What should we do just wait out here?" I asked him feeling a little awkward waiting for a funeral to end just so we could get a fan belt.
"I don't know. I feel kind of messed up waiting outside a church waiting for a funeral to end." Wade said to me as if he just read my mind.
I heard the church doors open behind me so I looked to see that guy who was kneeling come out of it with a kind of sad/pissed off look on his face.
"Hey, sorry about walking in. we didn't know…
"You shouldn't have walking in" the guy said cutting wade off mid-sentence and started to smoke.
"Yeah, I know. It's just that we have car trouble. We're not from this town" Wade told the guy trying to apologize but also telling him why we walked in on the funeral, I could see that he was failing miserably so I pitched in. "were actually looking for a guy named Bo, he works at the gas station"
"You found him"
"Really? Well um we need a fan belt" wade told him awkwardly clearing his throat. "We were camping up the road…"
The man or Bo as we now know him as laughed in disbelief again cutting wade off mid-sentence.
"A fan belt? You walk in on a funeral for a fucking fan belt?" Bo said looking like he couldn't believe that we had done just that making us feel a whole lot more awkward. "Well, let me just go dump the casket in the ground. I'll be right there"
"Look we're sorry" I told him trying to make him realize that we did feel bad and we were actually sorry. He looked at me and said yeah in a disbelieving voice and carried on into the church.
"That's twice today. I'm an asshole" wade said as I passed him. "Let's just go back to the road.
"Hey" I heard a voice call out to us from behind, we turned to see Bo looking less pissed off coming from the church again. "Hey I'm sorry. You know, someone very special to me just passed. And I didn't mean to take It out on you" he told us looking at us sadly.
"No, no, no. it's totally understandable." I replied to him with a sympathetic smile.
"I reckon things will wrap up soon. Why don't I meet you guys back at the station in about a half? Bo said looking at me and wade.
"That would be great, if that's okay?" I asked him not wanting to put him out after the walking in on the funeral thing, he looked at me and quietly said "yeah" before walking off back to the church.
I turned to wade with a smile on my face "Great" I started to walk off but soon stopped when wade wasn't following. "What?" he turned to me slowly with a little bit of an annoyed look on his face "nothing. Looks like your fan clubs gotten a little bigger." He walked off in front of me as I looked at the church shocked "are you serious?" I said not believing him. "Yeah. I am serious. It's obvious Dalton still has a crush on you too but then again he likes Ashley too so I'm guessing he likes anything that walks." He said bringing up the fact that Dalton likes pretty much any girl.
"Oh my god. Okay, that's three times today. You're officially an asshole." I told him making him stop in his tracks "let's go see your famous house of wax" I said sarcastically waving my hands in the direction of the building.
"But I'm still your favorite asshole right?" wade said in a playful voice behind me.
"Always" I replied smiling at him nudging him in the shoulder as he playfully kicked me in the butt. We continue to push and make fun of each other until we made it to the house of wax.
"I don't know what you expect to see in here" I said to wade quietly starting to regret my choice in coming up here. I saw wade fish something out of his pockets and do something to the wall. "It is wax. Like, literally." He said to me excitedly, I scratched the wall and felt some of the wax curl under my fingernails but I was a lot less excited than he was.
"You're not going to go in there are you?" I asked him when he opened the door even though there was a clear closed sign next to it.
"Yeah" he whispered excitably like a kid at Christmas poking his head around the door to see if anyone was in there. We walked into the museum when we saw it was empty "Doesn't closed mean 'I don't want you in here'?" I said to wade as he played around with some of the wax stuff. "Relax. I just wanna take a quick look" I looked around cautiously to see if there was anyone in any of the other rooms "hello? Anybody in here? See relax car were fine" hmm funny I don't feel like relaxing in a frigin wax museum.
"How cool is this? Everything in her is wax. The floor, the walls. Look at this" wade said pointing at a table thing "this is wax" he declared again. "Hm yeah. Cool. Awesome" I really didn't want to be here. "Who are these people supposed to be?" I shrugged "I don't know" I didn't care more like "aren't there supposed to be famous people in a wax museum, I don't recognize this guy" he said pointing to a wax version of a man looking like he's having fun, creepy.
I looked around at all the wax people and then some newspaper pages caught my eye "Trudy opens house of wax. Trudy's wax carvings are a hit at the state fair. Trudy and husband are expecting first child." I looked at wade "since when is a wax sculptor a celebrity?" he started to walk over to me saying "I don't know. Small town I guess." Ironic. "That's right. You like small towns" I said to him a little bit sarcastically. He smiled knowingly "I didn't say I wasn't gonna like New York I just said that I haven't made a decision yet. I still have time, all right?" I just smiled at him putting on my sweet voice hoping to sway him "well, I'd really like you to be there with me."
"Oh no, there's a fire. Help me Carly. I'm melting. My skirts gonna catch fire. My legs are burned" I heard wade say in a high pitched voice behind me, I turned around to see him with a lighter next to the wax ballerinas skirt I ran over and knocked his hand out of the way before he could melt it "cut it out please" I checked on the wax ballerina to make sure that he hadn't burned it too bad. "You're my hero" he said again in the high pitched voice. "That's not cool wade!"
"Hey car, there's a dog for you" wade said walking over to the wax dog "hey, puppy. You a little wax dog too? What's up dog?" he bend down to touch the wax dog when it jumped up and barked at him making him shout Jesus! And fall over. I laughed at him as the dog ran off and wade looked at me and said "yeah haha, laugh it up" with a small pout on his lips "what's a dog doing in here anyway"
I looked at all the little wax things on the counter, they were all like hybrids of stuff like a woman's head and chest on a lizards Body, I looked on the Bottoms of all the sculptors and they all had the same name 'Vincent'. I turn to see wade playing on the piano "this Vincent guys quite the artist" I said to him raising my eyebrows "yeah, I think this Vincent guy needs therapy" he said back to me mockingly. We walked into a room which looks like a dining area "I mean, look how detailed this is. Tell me this doesn't look real" he said to me holding us a wax carrot this did look very real.
"I don't really care, I mean. Not that its bad but everything made out of wax? Don't you think that's a little weird" I asked him walking into the dining area seeing the flame from his lighter go out. "those aren't wax" he said looking in the corner of the room pointing out two old dusty high chairs but only one name could be seen, again it was Vincent.
"oh whatever" I blew my hair out of my face, walking over to a mirror on the wall and rubbed all the cobwebs off of it so I could see my reflection the thing I didn't count on seeing however was somebody else's, this person looked freaky like half of their face was melted, I gasped looking at the window I saw in the mirror "What? What is it?" wade asked me hurriedly. "I just saw someone" I told him pointing to the window. "It was probably just a wax thing" he told me calmly. "No, no. I wasn't a wax thing. It was moving and it was freaky looking" I said looking at the window still hoping it wouldn't come back. "I'll go check it out" wade said starting to walk to the front door.
"Wade, where are you going? Don't leave me here" I begged him not wanting to be left alone in this place. "Wade, come on" I tried leaving too but he pushed me back inside telling me to say put while he went to check it out. I shut the door behind me and looked at all the sculptors warily. I walked to what looked like a kitchen area to see if there was anyone in there but as I looked around I heard something so I moved closer to the window and waited for the sound to stop. Suddenly I heard a bang come from the window and I whirled around to see a wax figure with a disfigured face directly behind me, making me scream, pushing it over breaking it, that's when I Bolted out of the wax house and into wades arms freaking out "whoa car, what's wrong?" he asked me worriedly holding me in his arms. "This place is freaking me out!" I told him trying to walk as far away from it as I could "calm down. There's no one here." He told me trying to soothe me but I was too freaked out at this point "please, I just wanna go "making him let go of my arms and pulling him along with me "okay. Okay we'll go to the gas station then." He agreed still letting me pull him away from the wax museum, only sparing a look to see if there was anyone actually in the house of wax, as we walked back down the hill to the gas station I began to think about the freaky looking person and if they were actually there and not something that I just saw because I was already freaked out.
Please review! it would mean a lot to know what you think about the new chapter and any questions you may have :)
