7. Confessions

Later that afternoon Brenden came to pick up Trixie only to be surprised by the rest of the group.
'Uhm is it okay if the others tag along?' Trixie asked smiling hopefully.
'Um okay sure..' He said. 'Hop in.'
Jim eyed off Brenden suspiciously then hopped into the back seat squashing in beside honey and mart. Brian tried to fit into the front with Trixie.
'So what movie is it?' Brian asked Brenden.
'Grease.' He replied.

The car drive after that was silent. And awkward.
Trixie couldn't help but keep glancing in the rear view mirror at Jim and suddenly everything hit her, she had lied to Jim. Lied. Something Bob-Whites never did. What was she thinking? She needed to tell him the truth. And she didn't even have feelings towards Brenden anyway so it wont be to bad. They were friends. Just friends. Right? She looked over at Brenden. He didn't look too happy to be squished into the front seat with Trixie's brother. He didn't look to happy at all. Maybe the invite wasn't open to everyone.

They pulled up at the cinema and all jumped out as quickly as they could. One more second cooped up in there and Trixie would have screamed. She decided she would pull Jim aside during the movie and tell him the truth. Before it gets too deep. They went in to get their tickets.
'I have wanted too see this since it was first released!' Honey said excitedly.
Trixie agreed. 'I'm so excited to finally watch it!'
The Bob-Whites and Brenden went to wait at the doors for them to open.
'There are quite a few people around.' Trixie thought. 'Especially some really suspicious looking people.' She shook her head. 'Snap out of it. Not everyone is out to get you.' She thought again.
'Is everything alright?' She heard Jim ask.
She turned, 'Yeah sure is.' she hesitated, 'Jim, i need to tell you something.'
Better now then never.
'What is it?' He asked.
'Tickets, tickets please!' The doorman suddenly shouted opening the doors and collecting tickets.
Trixie grumbled something that Jim didn't quite catch.
'Tell me later?' He asked.
She nodded and together they headed in to find their seats.

Trixie sat next to Brenden and Jim sat on the other side. It couldn't have been more of an awkward set up. She couldn't concentrate on the movie at all. Though she could admit that John Travolta was looking quite handsome She could feel the tension from Brenden knowing that he wasn't alone with her and she could feel the calm happiness from Jim who didn't know she had lied. She had never felt so bad. Finally she got up and ran out of the room. She couldn't take it. She leaned against the wall beside the door and slid down to the ground. Jim joined her moments later.
'Trix, hey, whats the matter.'
Trixie held in her tears. 'Jim i'm sorry, i really am.' She said.
He sat down beside her, confused. 'Sorry? For what?' He asked kindly taking her hand.
'I lied Jim. I lied to you and i have never felt worse about doing anything in my life. I am so sorry. Brenden isn't my cousin. In fact i barely know him. I thought i had this silly little crush but i don't. It was all so stupid and then he asked me to the movies and i didn't want to be rude so i said yes but Honey said everyone should go. And now its all one big mess. I don't feel for him like i feel for you. No where near.' The tears welled up in her eyes as she managed to chock out the last sentence.
Jim didn't say anything. Or do anything. He just sat looking at her. She couldn't meet his eyes because of how ashamed she felt. He let go of her hand and went to get up when there was a sudden bang. A bang like nothing Trixie had ever heard before. And a bullet whizzed past her, crashing into the wall.
