Joseph is waiting for me in a gray mustang.
“Where did you get the car ? ”
“It’s mine. ”
I narrowed my eyes at him.
"I'm kidding. "
“You didn’t tell me your dad owns a car dealership? ”
“You never asked. ”
We ride for a while until he pulls up near the sidewalk.
He knods and I get out of the car.
“Thanks ”I said.
“You don't want a ride back? ”
“The bus stop is up ahead,you don't have to”
“Are you sure ? ”
“No, pick me up at five, ”I said quickly.
He smiled and drove away.
What’s he so happy about ?No time to talk about boys,lets focus.
A officer passes me.Then I see a big women in a dark red long sleeve shirt standing near the desk.
“Excuse me do you work here ? ”
“Yes what are looking for ? ”
“Did someone send a letter at three thirty on tuesday afternoon to Lakersveill? ”
“Let me check. ”
Her eyes looked down at the computer screen and then at me.
“I’m sorry,there's no results.”
“No,there has to be-”
She goes back to doing her work.
“No, I'll do anything for you to let me know.”
"It can't just be it here."
She sighs and whispers.
“I’ll notify you when I get the chance, what’s your number ?”
Just then I thought of something I never had thought about before.
My number.I walk out,and Joseph is parked outside.
“Wow, that was quick, it’s not even five yet.”
“Listen, I put the cart infront of the horse, I thought I could sneak in.”
“Cart infront of the horse ? What are you George Washington ?”He starts moving towards the road.
“It’s not funny actually-”
“Why were you out here ? ”I asked.
“It was just incase, ”
He looks at me.
“Of what? when I get eaten by monsters, ”I laugh.
We start moving.
My eyes glance at the ground.
I look forward, and the three little kids are in the way.
“Joseph ! ”
He stops and I feel the weight pulling me down as we crash into a truck.
I thought about what he said.
I don’t know why but the numbers 4514 were stuck in my mind.I still can’t remember what happened up until now.
My eyes open, and I was suprised to see my mom.
She smiles, then kisses my cheek.
I turn my head to see my dad.
It gives me the chills.
What's he doing here?
