The next day John dialed up Holly's number
" hello" she said in a whispy tone of voice
" it's john I told you I would call" trying to make his voice seem happier. He continued " do you want to go out sometime maybe I can pick you up tonight and we can go see a movie."
" oh ! I would loooove to" in a cherry tone.
" where do you live?"
" I live on Parks way avenue"
" see you then"
" bye "
John hung up the phone. John then planned in his mind the closer he got to her the closer to the brother.
John pulled up to the driveway. The house was brick and with a double garage. An old basketball hoop hung in the driveway. John combed his hair back and starightned his flannel. He walked up the pathway of the house and rang the door bell. The door creaked open.
A man opened the door. He was tall but not as tall as John.
"Hi I'm john is Holly here?" John confidently said
" oh , well my name is Ben, I'm her father!"
Ben shook Johns hand and almost gasped from the pain of how tightly he was grasping his had. John thought for a small man he's very strong.
Then in a stern voice he said " I want her home by 10:30 sharp"
" yes sir " john said more confidently trying to get Ben to trust him.
" you're here!" Holly strutted down the hallway in floral blue dress. Her hair was clipped back.
"Shall we go?" John held out his arm for Holly who instantly grabbed it as the walked to the car. He felt Ben burning holes in the back of his head as he drove away with his daughter.
John let Holly pick out the movie and she ended up picking American Hustle. It turned out not to be a bad movie. It's just that all the characters were trying to do the right thing but in the wrong ways. John felt especially bad for the governor of newjersey in the movie because he got arrested even though he was trying to do the right thing.
On the car ride back to Holly's house Holly and John started a conversation about the movie
"I thought it was funny when Jennifer Lawrence put the metal in the microwave and it exploded" Holly laughed
John said " it was funny in the beginning he was trying to cover up his bald spot with fake hair . What if I did that when I got middle aged and old?"
Holly laughed even harder " I had a lot of fun with you John"
John parked in Holly's driveway . The two walked up the walkway. John checked his watch 10 :23 pm. He made it on time.
" we should do this again sometime " Holly said as she blushed.
John didn't even reply yet when Holly kissed him on the check and quickly rushed inside leaving John alone.
