Here Goes Nothing
"What movie do you want to watch now?" I asked Stallone as I jumped up from the couch to take out the DVD we had just finished.
"Doesn't matter." She shrugged her shoulders.
I pulled out the first movie off the self. "How about this." I held the movie up so she could see it.
She laughed. "The Lion King, really?"
"You said whatever!" I crossed my arms with the movie still handing in my hand.
"It's fine, put it in."
I bent down to put the new DVD in place and blushed as I could no doubt feel Stallone's eyes staring me up and down. I decided to play her game.
"Have a nice view there huh?" I said as I took my time putting in the DVD. She didn't say a word.
I stood up straight and hopped back onto the couch beside her.
"Push play please." I looked over to her after a moment of her not moving. I could see she was in a deep daydream and I was very curious what it was about.
"Lonieeee" I waved my hand in front of her face which snapped her back to reality.
"What are you daydreaming about?" I asked as I took the remote from her and pushed play.
"I'm not daydreaming."
"You just were."
"No I wasn't"
"Was it about me?"
"What? No, I wasn't day dreaming."
"You're not a good liar."
"Shh! The movie is on." I cut her off and gave her a wink. She let out a nervous sigh and turned to the T.V.
I promised Stallone this would only be a movie night and that I wasn't going to make the moves on her. Even though everything in me is telling me to push her down and start attacking her with my kisses, I decided it was better to wait. I don't want to scare her away, but that doesn't mean I can't play with her head.
After a while into the movie I snuggled into her and let my head lay on her chest while my hand rested on her lower stomach. I couldn't help but smile as I could hear her heart start to race and her body tense up to my touch.
"You okay Pretty Face?" I asked with a chuckle.
"No, I'm not." I looked up at her to see her big dark grey eyes staring down at me. She held her hand on my face and looked down at my lips.
Oh my god! She's going to kiss me! Finally!
I closed my eyes as I felt her lips 1 inch away from mine.
RING, RING, RING
We both jumped to the sound of Stallone's phone going off.
FUCK! Whoever's on the phone is dying tonight!
I looked at my caller I.D. and didn't hesitate to answer it when I saw Shiloh's name.
"Stallone can you please come get me and Johnson. He was driving his moms car and it just broke down."
"First off he's a loser for driving his moms car, second why didn't you call those other losers we call parents?" I stated a little irately because I knew I was going to be the one picking her up.
"Because we are at the movies. I promised them we were only going to the mall and back, and if they…no scratch that, if Jade finds out I left the mall and went with him to the movies she will kill me."
"Well she won't kill you. Kill is such a strong word….maybe torture would work better."
"And what will they say when they see me bringing you home? They will suspect something."
"I will worry about it then."
"Then Jade will be up my ass!"
" Stallone please just come now."
I sighed. "Fine. Whatever."
I got her exact location and what not before I ended the call. I had almost forgot Evelyn was sitting next to me until I looked over at her. She had a pout on her face, one of a five year old. I couldn't help but laugh at her.
"What at you laughing at?" She said looking over at me with mad eyes.
"What's wrong with you?"
"You're phone, that's what's wrong. Who was it?"
"Oh, my sister. I have to go pick her up, you rollin'?"
"Sure whatever." She got up and started towards the door as I sat there.
"Are you coming or what?"
I just realized why she was so mad.
If my phone hadn't of rang would I really have kissed her? Would it have been more than just a kiss?
One the way to the movie theater my mind was racing. There was no way I was about to kiss Evelyn. I'm not ready for that. I can't kiss anyone right now. My heart still aches and I'm not about to jump into another relationship, and I'm definitely not the type to just be making out with people. My kisses mean something. I don't kiss lips unless I mean it. What the hell was I thinking?
Once we pulled up at the movie theater it wasn't hard to spot my sister and her little boyfriend as they posted against what I guess was his mom's car and made out without a care in the world.
I turned my lights off and pulled right in front of them, but they were too into their kiss to notice.
I beeped the horn and turn on my high beams which made both of them jump so hard he had to catch Shiloh before she fell.
"That wasn't funny." Evelyn shot at me as she looked over at me with care for Shiloh and her date.
"Nooo, no it wasn't." I stated as I shook my head. "It was hilarious."
"Get in the car losers!" I shouted out of the window at them as I popped some gum in my mouth. "Want some." I held out the gum to Evelyn which she greedily snatched from me , tore in half , and threw out of the window.
"Why did you just murder my gum?" I asked as Shiloh and Johnson hopped in the back seat.
"Well I can't murder what wasn't there."
I just realized I had took the last piece of gum before I offered her a piece.
"My bad." I put the car and drive and sped down the street.
So where exactly do you live again Johnson, Johnson?"
"Yeah, just hang a right at the next light."
"Whatever." I stated as I did what I was told.
Once he was home it was almost midnight.
"Had Jade or Tori not called you?" I asked as I looked at her through the rearview mirror. Shiloh's curfew is at 9:00pm. By now they would have the swat team after her.
"Nope. You think they are okay?"
I thought for a moment and I knew exactly why they haven't called. "Oh, I'm pretty positive they are doing very good." I chuckled.
"Well since I'm not home, and you're not home and the house was empty. I'm just saying they probably took advantage of this moment. They are fine."
"Huh?" She stated so confusedly.
I shook my head. "You're such an idiot."
Evelyn caught onto what I was implying and asked Shiloh if she wanted to come with us back to her house.
"-I'm pretty sure Sunshine would like your company." She said with a smile.
"Well alright." She shrugged her shoulders.
"Can I borrow something to sleep in?" I asked Sunshine as she skipped around her room for no apparent reason.
She stopped midskip. "Of course you can!" She ran over to her dresser and pulled out a black beater and some red basketball shorts.
"Here." She said sitting next to me.
"Thanks." I could care less that she was in the room when I changed. I pulled off my shirt and dropped it as Sunshine startled me.
"Whoa daddy! What happened to your back!?" Sunshine jumped up from her bed.
"I, uh, fell." I stuttered.
"You fell off or on top of what!?" She asked as she touched the dark purple bruise that was the size of a softball on my back.
"Fuck Sunshine! Don't touch it!" I shoved her away.
I sighed. It's nobody's business what happened. I keep these things to myself. Not even Stallone should know. They will just judge. That's all people do. They judge people by their cover before they get to know their heart and I wasn't going to let that happen.
"I fell off of a, um horse." I was a terrible liar.
Sunshine looked at me from the top of her eyes. "Really Shiloh? A horse? Tell me where you rode a horse?"
"At the stables duh." I tried to sound convincing.
"Oh my god I love the stables!" She clapped her hands.
Wait did that just work? Did she just believe me? We don't even have stables, so what in the hell is she talking about?
She looked down and frowned for a moment before she met my eyes again. "Wait what are stables?"
Just my luck.
"Shiloh, c'mon tell me what happened? Is it that serious?"
"I mean not to me, but to other people it might be."
"I promise I won't tell anyone."
"I don't know Sunshine, you seem like the type that yells out secrets."
"I swear." She held up her pinky. Pinky swearing is something I haven't done since elementary school, but I'm pretty sure for Sunshine, pinky swearing actually means something.
I grabbed her pinky in mine.
"You can't tell a soul and if you do….I will…" I wasn't sure what to say. I mean I wasn't going to threaten her.
"You will what?"
I smiled. "I will gage the eyes out of all your stuffed animals."
She gasped and put her hands to her mouth in shock like I just told her I was going to kill her mother before sundown.
"I swear I won't tell." She calmed down.
"So what really happened?"
Here's goes nothing.
