Chapter title based on: Kenny Chesney- She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy
It's pretty clear Tommy has a thing for Jake. I'm almost certain Jake has lukewarm feelings for Hamilton. I'm positive Hamilton's totally in love with Jake. This trip to the city is going to be a rough one. Will better come and bring along his girl Caroline, or else shit is going to get really complicated, really fast.
I decided to go into the store and call him up right away.
"Will?" I said, when he answered the phone.
"Nope, this is Scout, who's this?"
"It's Sean, Will there?"
"Oh. No, Will's not here."
"Can you give him a message? Me and Bell and Jake and Hamilton and my friend Tommy and whoever he can find are going to the city this weekend to go dancing. Tell him we want him and Caroline to come along."
"Yeah, fine," responded Scout gruffly, before hanging up unceremoniously.
I did an oil change for Bella just to burn off some steam- talking to that kid always messes with my head. Especially when he's rude.
"Where'd you go babe?" Bella asked, when I walked back out.
"I tried to call Will to tell him the plan. Had to leave a message with his roommate though, so I doubt if he'll get it. You might want to double check when you get back to school," I said, directing the last part to Jake.
"I'm on it boss," she said, saluting, "Speaking of which, I should be heading back now."
"Going so soon?" asked Bella, wiping off her hands to give her a hug goodbye.
"Yeah, I've got a lot of homework."
"Homework? What's that? We don't get any of that at the public school down yonder," joked Tommy, ruffling her hair as she climbed onto her bike.
"Hardy har har," she said, clipping on her helmet and headed back to school.
"God, I love that bike," said Tommy as she rode away.
"You love her ass on that bike," said Bella, whipping at him with her rag.
"Touché," he responded.
"Tushy, indeed," I added and we all just fell over laughing. See this is what I like- just a bunch of townies hanging out together, drinking some Cokes, and just having a good time.
