Thanks to And Your Point for beta-ing. Let's dedicate the story/chapter/however much is wanted to the wonderful beta :D.
Saturday is the day where you get to relax right? Well not for me. Even though Trina left earlier this morning to go to an audition, with my parents for supervision, I get woken up early. I enjoy sleeping in on the weekends, yet I rarely get to! Why am I waking up you ask? A crazy person ringing my doorbell.
Stomping down the stairs I shouted down "I'm coming!" After which I yanked open the door and, surprisingly, there was a crazy person standing at my door. "Jade?"
"Vega." She smirked. "Nice tank top. Totally can't see your stomach." She said sarcastically as she pushed past me. What is it with people and the not waiting for invites? Even the Craigslist Killer waited for an invite… too soon?
Rolling my eyes, I shut the door, "It shrunk in the wash!"
"Did your shorts shrink into booty shorts too?" She asked, still smirking.
"I-well-I wasn't expecting anyone! What do you even want?"
Jade grimaced. "I can't believe I'm asking you this but do you want to go on a helicopter ride with me?"
"Why so you can throw me out?" I totally think she would. However, if it got me close to her, I might let her. Am into Jade? Yes. Am I gay? Well not exactly, I go both ways. Didn't expect that did you? Tori Vega into girls. No one knows and I'm in no hurry to tell anyone.
Jade half glared at me. "Look Beck and I reserved a ride for today and now he can't go."
"So why me?" I crossed my arms. Jade usually has ulterior motives to these. Why do I like her again?
"Cat's babysitting, I don't want to go with the nerd and his doll, and Andre's grandmother is going nuts as usual. It's either you or Sinjin and I personally don't want to be alone with that weirdo."
"He's not that bad." Sinjin is weird, but he's not- "Okay he is."
"Exactly. Look do you want to go or not?"
"Where's the helicopter flying?" I asked, still hesitant.
"The pilot is just going to fly us around the ocean and some other good views."
"Alright. I'll go. When is it?" I caved. If she has a plan, I don't care, I've never been in a helicopter before and I want too.
"Well, I've two hours to get ready then. You can hang out here, watch TV or something."
"What joy." She muttered, sarcastically dropping onto my couch.
I couldn't help but eye her when she turned the TV on. Jade was wearing a very dark purple shirt, black jeans and black fingerless gloves. Her black hair, I don't know why she dyed it if she did, was currently hanging in front of her face. I felt her eyes on me and I rushed upstairs.
I took half an hour to get ready. I'd decided to wear a light blue shirt and normal blue jeans. I also decided to wear a necklace and two rings. Nothing fancy. I walked downstairs and Jade was laying on the couch, but she sat up when she heard me coming.
"About time." Jade said impatiently. She turned the TV off and walked to the door. "We're taking my car." I grabbed my cell phone and Pearpod before following her.
We're right on time. We get in a helicopter, a blue and white one, and our pilot is a guy named Roger Cohen. He's a blue-eyed blonde and is pretty good looking. Why does Roger Cohen sound so familiar to me…
The ride wasn't bad actually, at first. Roger took us over the city, then to the ocean. The people on the beach looked really small, it was pretty awesome. If you've never seen the ocean, or city for that matter from the sky, you should. It's an amazing view.
About an hour into the flight, I turned to Jade, who was looking out the window. "Jade."
She turned her green eyes toward me and I almost got lost in them.
"Look, I know you don't like me, but you have to admit, this isn't bad. I know you only invited me because I'm the only one who wasn't busy, but I feel like I owe you. After this, how about I buy you lunch." I don't know if it's my natural niceness or the crush that made me say that.
Jade couldn't keep the shocked expression from forming on her face.
"Did you just ask me out?"
"Wha-what? I-no! I didn't mean it like that, I just-"
"Calm down Sensitive Sally. I was kidding. I won't turn down free food." Jade said.
"Okay then." I turned back to look out the window, but felt her eyes on me.
"Is Tori Vega hiding something?" I heard the smirk in her voice.
"Of course not." I say defensively.
"Seems like it to me. You've been acting kind of off today. Did you finally do something bad? What'd you do, enter in the exit at target?"
"Jade drop it ok? I didn't do anything wrong. I'm not like that"
"So it's that bad?"
"I said drop it West!" I snapped, turning to her. She opened her mouth to speak but never got the chance.
