How did I get here?

Over the course of the last year, Reed Johnson's life has made some interesting twists and turns, and sadly, very few of them were for the better. Now, to get her away from the scenes that provoked her post-traumatic stress, her father has chosen to move the family back home to Nazareth in Pennsylvania.
Both old and new friends quickly start to make an impact on her life, and pretty soon, Reed is caught up in a web of drama while dealing with a lot of stuff herself. With an already fragile mental health, who knows how she'll end up?


13. Out Tonight

When I pulled up at the studios I headed straight for the changing rooms. On my way there I called my dad to tell him that I wouldn't be home for dinner tonight. "No I don't know when I'll be home." "I don't know about this Reed. It's a school night." "I know daddy but I promise to be home before midnight. And It's not like i'm going bungee jumping or something I'm just going out for dinner." I said into the phone as I walked into the changing room. I started pulling my clothes out of my bag. "Alright fine. Who is it you're going out with anyways?" He asked. I stopped dead in my tracks. Should I be honest with him? I mean it was a date and he was my dad for crying out loud. But then I thought about it more closely. He would just tell David. And then David would go all crazy overprotective big bro. And that simply would not do. "Just a friend from school." I answered vaguely. "Ok sweetheart I have to get back to work I'll see you later. " He said. " Bye daddy love you!" I said and hung up. I got changed and went in to warm up.

I was exhausted. Lara had been really hard on me today. I hit the showers and got changed. Then I reaplied my makeup and looked at the time. 18:21. I still had some time to kill. I decided to do something special with my hair. After yanking my brush throug it I put it up in a series of complicated braids. When I was done I looked at my phone again. 18:28. Perfect. I shoved all my stuff in my bag and headed for the car. He was already there standing with his back to me. I decided to scare him a bit and snuck up behind him. Suddenly I screamed and jumped up on his back. He laughed at me. "Hi!" I said in his ear. "Hi" he said and yanked me up higher by my thighs. He carried me on his back the rest of the way to the car and put me down.

"So where are we going?" I asked him when we had gotten in. There is a small italian place just by Klaus park." He said. I drove there and parked the car. He got out before I had even unbuckled my seatbelt and opened my door for me. No guy had ever done that for me before and it was really nice. He put his hand at the small of my back and led me to the restaurant. When we got inside he made eye contact with a guy whom I guessed was the owner and we made a motion with his hand towards a small table in the corner with just one chair. When Tim didn't move he pulled his eyebrows together. Tim held up two fingers and he nodded in understanding. He did that little flicker of his hand again put this time towards a different table with two chairs. We sat down and a waiter handed us two menus. I looked at it but  couldn't decide. I put it down.

"So they seem to know you around here?" "Yeah I pretty much lived here after my dad bailed on us. I still come here a lot." He said not taking his eyes off the wine card. "So you know the place. What should I order?" I smiled. "Well what do you feel like eating?" he asked me. "Anything really" I replied "As long as theres lots of it. Training was exhausting. I'm famished!" I said and as if on que my stomach growled. He laughed at me and then flagged down the waiter ordering something he picked out and half a bottle of wine. And after that we just talked. About everything and nothing. And we didn't stop talking the whole dinner through. But I never told him about Ben. And he never mentioned his step dad. Time flew by and all too soon I had to ask "What's the time?" "Uhm fifteen past eleven why?" he asked looking down at his watch. "I promised my dad I would be home before midnight." I sighed. He flagged down the waiter again and payed. I tried to chip in but he very gently slapped my hand away. I laughed and let him.

We walked out to the car again and once we were inside I had to ask him the inevitable question. "So should I drive you home or..?" "No. No just go back to your place I'll walk from there." He said looking out the window. We drove off and about halfway there we started talking and joking again. When I pulled up in my driveway again we got out and I walked over and pulled him behind the car so that we were out of sight from David's window. He took the que and brought his lips to mine pushing me backwards against the car. My hands went in his hair and his hands were on my hips. When we finally pulled away for breath he whispered "So does this mean were dating?" "I hope so" I gasped still out of breath. We kissed again shortly just a quick peck on the lips and then I ran to my door. Once inside I leaned aganist it and slid my back down landing on my bum. I sat there for a moment catching my breath and then went to bed. I fell asleep that night still feeling his kiss on my lips.
