Chapter 6: He can stay!
As we got home, I noticed Ted's small white car in front of the house.
"Zig is a dead man," whispered Alan as we both got in the house.
The first thing I see is both Zigzag and my uncle sitting on the couch watching basketball.
"That was a fluke," exclaimed Ted, watching the TV as some guy made a basket.
"No, that was skill," smiled Ricky, "I told you they were better,"
Alan and I exchanged weird glances, "Hey Uncle Teddy," I muttered.
"Macie!" he happily said as he got up. The 42 year old man was wearing his old worn out jeans, and grey t-shirt with his trucking company's logo on top. His eyes were slightly red, he probably didn't sleep yet. He got up and hugged me.
"Hey Ted," muttered Alan, as Ted gave a quick glace towards him.
"Alan," he said simply, "You look well,"
"I've been better," Alan replied.
"Well, your friend here as explained his situation to me," he said.
We both looked over at Zigzag who gave a small wave.
"I'm not the type to kick someone out, but we do have some ground rules," he explained, "For all of you,"
We all sat on the couch, "Alan, let's just say I wasn't exactly thrilled to hear that you were coming back," said Ted.
I wish he didn't say that because I noticed Alan's hand turn into a fist. I poked him to make sure he wouldn't do anything stupid.
"But, I guess you did serve your time," he continued, "Now I never expected to care for all three of you, so I need you two to get jobs,"
He pointed at Squid and Zigzag who slightly looked at each other.
"Curfew is at 10 p.m. I expect no excuses unless someone is dying. Plus no drinking, smoking and late night partying," he continued.
"This list gonna end soon?" said an annoyed Squid.
I lightly hit him on his leg, "Don't push it," I whispered. I really didn't want this family to fall apart again.
Ted took a deep breath before saying something, "That's it, short and sweet," said Ted got up and headed to the kitchen. The good thing about Ted was that when he was done saying something, he was done. He didn't ramble on and on.
I turned to Squid as I , "Are you stupid? Just plain idiotic," I yelled, "Do you know how many months I tried to convince him you were changed. And then you try to push it!"
"Look, I don't need him," he started.
I interrupted, "Hell yeah you do. Just remember he doesn't need you,"
Squid looked pissed, got up and went up the stairs.
I sighed as I layed my head into one of the couch pillows. After running out of oxygen, I looked up to see Zigzag still staring at me.
I smiled nervously, "Sorry," I said getting up.
"No, no," he chuckled, "I'm the weird one staring."
I shyly looked down, and couldn't help but smile.
"I missed you," he said. My eyes shot up at his which also suddenly widened, "I mean, almost two years without making fun of you. I got alot of catching up to do,"
I laughed, "Sure, do that and I'll kick you out," Then I bit my tongue. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!
Ricky frowned a bit.
"Sorry," I muttered.
"Don't be," he said, "I don't blame them. I don't them for not liking me. I don't either,"
My mouth opened, but I had no words as Zigzag got up and went to his (well my) room.
Yay! Another Chapter.
I know a couple of them seem like fillers, but officially I'll stop doing that now.
What did you think.
Don't forget to...
