No, no, no, no, this was bad! Very, very bad! Justin and my mom just stared at each other for a moment.
"James, lets go." my mom said. I looked at her in disbelief. She was gonna tell me to go? I know I'm not eighteen yet and still have to listen to her, but who is she telling me its time to go? I didn't want to go, I was enjoying my time with Justin. He was a very cool guy.
"No." I said. She put a hand on her hip like if she was saying, 'excuse me?'.
"James lets go. Now."
I crossed my arms and leaned back in my chair.
"No." I repeated.
"James." Her voice rose.
"I'm not going, because you lied to me." I said. She gasped, "I never lied to you."
I pointed at Justin, "Exhibit A." She just huffed and turned her head. "We're going to talk once you get home." She said and walked away. Justin turned back to face me with a blank expression.
I waved my hand in front of his face, "You okay?"
"She's pregnant?" He whispered.
"Landon." I said. "She's pregnant with Landon's kid."
He clenched his fists and his face got mad.
"I'm gonna kill him."
"Whoa whoa whoa! You can't, as much as we both hate him you can't kill him. Or do anything to harm him in any way. Because they're legally married and have every right to have a child together." I said.
Justin just looked at the ground, "I loved her so much."
"I understand." I patted his shoulder. He looked up, "You hate Landon too?"
"What'd he do to you?"
I shurgged, "I just feel like he hates me. Thats it."
When I got home my mom was waiting for me in the livingroom. I was mad at her, but I sat down and listened to what she had to say.
"Why didn't you tell me Justin was my real dad?" I asked.
"I didn't like him, I think he told you why."
"But just because you didn't like him, doesn't mean you had to hide him from me. Mom, he's my dad for crying out loud!"
"I'm sorry, but he hurt me."
"That was a long time ago." I muttered.
She then proceeded to tell me how sorry she was and she should've told me sooner about him, and stuff like that.
"I'm guessing you're gonna spend more time with him now?"
I nodded, "Absolutely."
"Well, I can't stop you forever." She sighed. I got up, "Good night mom."
That night, I felt a little more relaxed after talking things out with my mom. I was still somewhat mad at her, but hey, she's my mom. I can't stay mad at her forever. I was about to go to sleep for the night when I heard something. It sounded like a rock hitting my window. I shrugged it off at first, but I kept hearing it. I got up and opened my window only to get a rock hit my eye.
"Oops! Sorry James!" I heard someone say. I looked down with my good eye and saw Justin. What was he doing here?
"What're you doing here?" I whisper/yelled.
"Wanna hang out?"
"We just hung out all day."
"I know but, theres this movie I wanna go see, and I have nobody to watch it with. So I was thinking, how about some more father-son time?"
I rubbed my bad eye. Go see a movie at ten at night, or go to sleep? Tomorrow's sunday anyway, and I have nothing planned, might as well.
"You're paying for me right?"
"I'll be down there in a little."
I closed the window and put on some sweat pants, a maroon v-neck shirt and my jordans. My dad was crazy. I quietly made my way past my moms and Landons room.
I couldn't wait to get out of my cast, these crutches were hard work. I silently left the house and met with Justin outside.
"Come on James."
We got into his car. His car. I freakin love his car. It was an audi, such a beautiful thing. I had a feeling he was somewhat on the rich side.
"I'm sure your mom won't mind that I steal you for the night."
"Probably not. Hey how come you don't have anybody to go to the movies with?" I asked.
He turned on the engine.
"I don't have a lot of friends."
"Didn't you have friends back in high school?"
"Yup, but that was a long time ago."
I looked out the window as he backed up the car.
"Do you have a woman in your life?" I asked.
"Had. I've only ever had one true love, and that was your mom, but I see now that it was my fault things ended the way they did."
"So you're single?"
I smile crept on my face. I could change that.
For the last part of my day with Kendall, he wanted to take me to the movies. At ten at night to see a scary movie. I hate scary movies. But I went along with it.
We pulled into the parking of the movie theatre. We happened to park across from an audi. Kendall always wanted one of those.
"Whoa! Look at that nice car, I wonder who's it is."
We walked into the theater, hand in hand.
"Two tickets for sinister." He said to the lady at the box office. I heard about this movie, its supposed to be really scary.
Once we got situated with our popcorn and drinks we found a spot in the way back of the theater.
While we were waiting for the movie to begin Kendall was on his phone, doing something. But I saw two people walk in, they looked similar. One was older but the other had nice brown hair, and looked a lot like James. Then I looked closer and saw that it really was James. He was here with someone. My heart started beating faster, why did I have to like him?
They sat down in the middle of the theater. James looked so hot, even though he was in sweat pants and a v-neck. Kendall looked up, "Hey the movie's starting."
I gulped a little, prepared to be scared out of my wits.
Halfway through the movie, I had to pee, and I was scared.
"I have to go to the bathroom, I'll be right back." I told Kendall and kissed his cheek before I left. I went out of the theater and went into the restroom. Those 34 ounces of lemonade didn't do me any good. But I was happy to have left. The movie was freaking me out, I'm bound to have nightmares for sure.
When I left the bathroom, I turned the corner to go back to the theater when I ran into somebody. James.
"Oops, sorry about that." He said and looked at me. My hands got a little sweaty, stupid nervousness.
"It's okay." It was quiet for a moment.
"So who are you here with?" I asked.
"Oh, my dad. You?"
I noticed he stiffened a little after I said Kendall.
"Thats cool, what movie are you seeing?" he asked.
"No way, me too. I didn't see you in the theater."
"We sat at the top." I looked into his hazel eyes. They were so gorgeous.
"Oh. Don't tell anyone but I left the theater because I was starting to get scared." He said.
I chuckled, "Its okay, I was getting scared too."
Then I noticed he wasn't in a wheel chair no more, and his cast on his arm was gone.
He was trying to keep his balance on his crutches, "Wanna sit down?"
"That would be good."
So we then talked. We caught up on things, and just being around him was so nice. I felt at ease with this guy. My dream guy.
I felt so nervous just talking to Jasmine. And I don't get nervous with girls! Ever! She is really somehing special. At one point during our conversation she said she could read the palms of hands. I let her take my left hand and read it.
Just the touch of her made my hand burn.
"See this your life line." She pointed at a line on my palm. "And by the looks of it, you're life is going to be pretty good."
"It is now that you're in it." I said softly. I'm pretty sure she didn't hear it though.
"See these lines on the side of your hand?"
"These supposedly determine how many kids you're going to have in the future."
She counted the lines.
"Whats the result?" I asked.
"Three kids? How is that lucky?" I asked her.
"Well I only have one line, so that means one kid. But I would love to have a bunch of kids. They're so adorable."
Then I remembered when I held baby Julian. He was pretty cute and small.
"So how many kids do you want?" I asked her.
"I don't know, maybe three."
But thats where our conversation ended. Because then Kendall came out.
"Jasmine, you missed the movie." He looked at me, "Hey...James.."
"Whats up buddy?" We man-hugged.
"Nothing much, I just came to watch a movie with Jasmine but she's out here, and not in the theater. But the movie ended so, yeah."
"I came to watch a movie too, but I got scared so I came out here, and I bumped into Jasmine." I said, Jasmine nodded in agreement.
"And what movie did you come to see?" Kendall asked.
"Oh, us too, but its almost midnight and I promised Jasmine's parents to have her home before twelve, so..."
Kendall took Jasmine's hand, "We should be going."
"Okay, thats cool. I guess we'll just have to hang out another time."
"Bye Jasmine." I watched her leave with Kendall. Something about the way Kendall acted made me think that he didn't want me around Jasmine. I know he called dibs and everything but, come on, we're talking about a girl here. A sweet, nice, good-looking girl. She's allowed to talk to me, theres no rule against it in the book of bro codes.
I saw Justin come out of the theater, he looked horrified.
"Hey...how was the movie?"
"Awesome! I can't believe you missed it!"
"I don't like scary movies."
"I see that now." He sat next to me and nudged my arm.
"Hey, good job." He smiled.
"Good job about what?" I asked.
"You talked to her."
"We've talked before."
"I know but you're getting there."
"Getting where?" He was making me confused.
"To the boyfriend zone. You're getting there." He leaned against the wall and smiled.
I guess he was right, I'm just taking baby steps. Be her friend and then her boyfriend.
"Can we go home now?" I asked.
"Oh, yeah. Come on."
We got up and left the theatre. As we were going put to the parking lot I saw Kendall kissing Jasmine. I looked the other way. My dad patted me on the back, and pushed the button on his car keys to unlock the doors.
"Whoa!" I heard someone say, turns out it was Kendall. He was walking over to us.
"You have an audi?" He asked.
"It's my dads audi." I said. Justin jingled his keys, "My hot ride."
Kendall looked at me and then at Justin.
"Buts thats not your dad." He said. I opened the passenger side door, "Yes it is." And I got in.
"Bye kids." Justin said and got in the drivers seat. Kendall just stood there as we backed out and left. I had a thought in my mind, and it was just an assumption. I think Kendall was jealous of me because I got to ride in an audi.
