5. Wanna Race?


"Hey Aunt Marie?" I said, walking into the living room dressed up.

"Yes? You look very nice. Special occasion?" She replied from her chair that she was reading in.

"I was just wondering... Do you think I could go out to a friend’s house tonight?" I hesitatingly asked.

"What friend are we talking about?" She raised an eyebrow.

"The Patton brothers." I said looking at the ground.

We went on having a whole big discussion about how I met them and if they were good kids. I glanced at the clock in back of her and five o'clock started to roll around and I did my best at trying to make her shut up.

She finally approved and I walked out the screen door and made my way down to the creek.

I was about to make a left turn and head to the bridge when I saw two boys on bikes messing around in the road. I stopped and squinted.

"Hey Amber! Come hop on!" Cole shouted when he saw me.

Ryan turned around and waved. They were both parked on their bikes so I shrugged and joined them.

Cole patted the handle bars telling me to get on. I smiled and gripped the bars, pulling myself up.

"Wanna race?" Cole asked his brother slyly.

"3... 2... " Ryan counted down.

"Wait! What? Let me o-"

"One!" Ryan shouted and before you knew it Cole bolted off down the driveway, racing Ryan.

I was laughing uncontrollably. I could feel my long brown hair blowing in the wind and I heard the boys betting on who was going to win. The sun was still out and made the whole town a gorgeous shade of orange. At one point, I almost fell and gripped the bars even tighter, I slipped and grabbed Cole's warm arms by accident. I panicked and removed my hands quickly, now I looked like the weirdo.

Cole sped past Ryan and shouted "Jump!"

I didn't know what he was implying so I tensed up and stayed still. He stopped the bike randomly by the porch and I went flying. Now I understood. I barely landed on my feet, I fixed my lacey tank top and adjusted my hair.

"Don't worry, you didn't turn ugly on the ride" Cole teased when he noticed me combing through my hair with my fingers.
