I’m chilling in my room doing my homework trying to get stuff done. That’s when my phone rings and the caller ID is Jason. I answer it and say “Hello?” He says “Hey Jas, it’s me.” His voice sounds raspy over the phone. I reply “Oh hey Jason.” He replies “I want to see you.” I hesitate and say “What, right now?” He grins “Of course baby.” I get goose bumps when he calls me that.
I reply to Jason “Well, I’m um. I’m kind of busy.” He says “Why don’t you come out, I’m right outside of your house waiting in my car.” I gasp “What, really?” He chuckles “Look out your window.” I pause but then I get up to look outside my window and he was right. I saw his car right in the front of my house. I whisper scream “Jason! My parents are home.” He sarcastically replies “Oooh really? Then you better come out here so we can drive off.” I sigh “Jason, I can’t believe you’re making me do this. I’ll be down in just a second.” I hear him lightly giggle. “Alright, good.” And then he hangs up the phone. I groan as I set my phone down. He practically gave me no choice but to go it seemed. Since I kind of felt bad he had already driven here, waiting for me. I put on my shoes and I try to figure out a way I’m going to sneak out. My parents are downstairs in the kitchen and regardless of where they are, I’m grounded which means I’m not even allowed to leave the house. I figured my only option was sneaking out through the balcony. Which I hated that option cause it was gonna be difficult to climb down and I just know Jason will sit in his car probably laughing like an idiot at how stupid I looked. I sighed and opened my balcony doors while I look over the ledge. I mumble to myself “He so owes me for this.” Last time I snuck out through the balcony was when Justin was there to help me and he was doing it with me. Right now I have to do it by myself so I just put my leg over the fence and managed to get over and jump down. It may have taken me awhile especially since I got my hair stuck in the tree.
Once I finally get down I run over to Jason’s car and open the door and I already hear him with bursts of laughter. He says “Was that a struggle for you?” I scoff “Shut up.” He continues to laugh and I roll my eyes and say “You’re so annoying, you’re the one that made me do that. Where are you taking me anyway?” He replies “Where ever your heart desires.” I sarcastically roll my eyes as I turn my head towards him “What are you talking about?” He says “Welllll I wanted to spend some time with you.” I slowly nod “Awww I see. You want to spend time with me?” He smiled and nods while he looks me in the eyes. “As long as I’m with you, I don’t really care what we’re doing.” I grin “I’ve been doing so much work I need a break, how about we just go watch movies at your house.” He replies “Well, if that’s what you want, we’ll do that.” I grin and sigh “Great.” I look out the front window and he starts driving off to his house.
Once we’re there and get in the house I tell him “Let’s make food now.” I walk into the kitchen and start looking through the pantries and cupboards. He says “Well damn help yourself why don’t you.” I roll my eyes “Please Jason, I’m just getting food.” He chuckles “Okay, I’ll go get a movie.” I reply “Kay.” and he walks out of the kitchen while I grab some food. Once I get the food I walk out of the kitchen and turn the corner. Suddenly Jason pops out and says “Did I scare you?” and I jump nearly dropping the food. “Jason!” Jason puts his finger against his lips signaling me to be quiet. I roll my eyes “Why do you always do that? You know I hate it.” He grins while squeezing the sides of my stomach “I know but I love it.” I backup trying not to laugh since I’m very ticklish. He laughs even more “Come on.” He signals with his hand to follow him up the stairs so I do.
We walk into his room and I sit on the bed while Jason puts the movie in. I notice that on top of Jason’s bedding there were a bunch of other folded blankets. I ask “Aww you already brought these blankets?” He replies “Mmm yeah.” I giggle “Aw how cute.” He shrugs “I try.” And he looks over to me and gives me his infamous smile. He has a TV right in front of his bed so we can watch while lying down which was nice. And since he had a king size bed it was cozy but he also had a big TV. I ask “What movie did you pick?” He replies “Comedy, you’ll like it.” I thought to myself, well that answers my question (not really).
Jason crawls in bed and I lay on the opposite side of him. He asks “What are you doing?” I give him a confused look “…watching the movie?” He scoffs “No, I mean why are you so far away from me?” I pause then say “Oh, I don’t know.” I scoot a little closer but not that much.
He then scoots closer to me, like right by my side. I guess I didn’t move close enough for him? Right as he scoots by me I feel the warmth of body radiate off mine as he wraps his arm around me, getting pretty up close and personal.
In the middle of the movie I find myself not even watching it, I’m just looking at my nails I guess just thinking about things. Jason I guess may have noticed and out of the corner of my eye I see him turn his head to the side facing me as he stared. He slowly and a bit hesitantly kisses my temple, and slowly pulls away which sent shivers down my spine.
I say “Jason,” He replies “Yes sweetie?” I sit up and look at him while he’s still lying down with his arm out. He looks me in the eyes as I say “I.. don’t feel right.” He gets a concerned look on his face and he slowly sits up. “It’s about Jacob isn’t it..” I sigh and look down at my lap. “What if he’s watching us right now? What if he watches our every move at every minute?” “I hate seeing you like this Jas. I don’t want you to live in fear just because of me. That’s not what I want for you.” I shake my head “It’s not you Justin. It’s not you at all. Don’t blame yourself. It’s…him.” He sighs “Look, don’t worry about him. That’s just what he wants us to do, is to worry. Don’t give him what he wants. And I can promise you one thing. No one is watching us right now. Okay?”
I nod still unsure of myself, but I knew I should trust him. After all, he knows more about all of this than I do.
We stop our conversation and his eyes turn back to the TV as he gets back in his position of laying down. I can tell he could still tell I was thinking about it. I give him a reassuring smile as he rubs his hand on my back giving me reassurance.
After a couple minutes I say “Jason.” He looks at me. I say “I probably should get home. Before my parents realize that I’m gone.” It had already been awhile since I’d been at his place. He stares at me and then says “But you’ve been here for less than an hour.” I reply “I know, I’m sorry. It was a great much needed break but uh, I think I should go.” He stares at me and pauses before he asks “This isn’t about-“ I interrupt him and shake my head as I reply “No..it’s not.”
After seeing how disappointed he looked, I add “But at least we got to 'spend time' like you wanted.” As I look over at him his face grows form a frown into a smile.
I get off the bed and stand up while he sits up and says “Alright, but it’s just I don’t want you to be scared.” I relaxingly say “Pfft, what are you talking about? I’m not scared.” My back was faced towards him so he couldn’t see my facial expressions as I look from the corner of my eye so I could tell if he really thought I was scared. There is a pause where neither of us say anything so I say “Don’t worry about me, I’m not afraid, like at all.” I was trying to be all chill and not have him think I was afraid.
He huffs “Alright, well if you say so.”
It grows pretty silent in the room so that's the time we decide to both go downstairs and head out to his car.
Once we pull up to my house I groan “Now I have to climb up to my balcony.” He laughs “That was a stupid idea.” I roll my eyes “Shut up I did it for you.” He sighs “I know, you must love me that much.” I squint my eyes and sarcastically say “Right.” He leans in to kiss me but I back away as I reject it. I quickly say all in one breath “Alright, um I’ll see you later.” and I get out of the car. I walk up to my house near where my room is and turn around to give Jason a slight wave. He smiles but also seemed confused. He drives off and I somehow manage to climb up my balcony and get inside my room. It was kind of awkward back in the car. I rejected his kiss, why? I don’t know, I felt like I knew, like it was on the tip of my tongue, but I couldn’t even tell myself.
I leave my room and go downstairs to go in the kitchen and eat something. Of course my parents hadn’t even left the kitchen that whole time I’ve been gone, except for my dad since he had work. I walk into the kitchen and my mom sees me and says “Hey Jasmine what have you been doing? You’ve been quiet as a mouse.” I say “Nothing much, you know. Just, sleeping.” I make up. She looks at me and her eyes trail down to my neck as they widen and her mouth drops open. She nearly yells “Jasmine what in the world is on your neck?!” I get confused “What are you talking about?” I walk to a mirror a few feet away from me and I look in it to see what she was talking about. My eyes widen. I had a hickey on my neck that Jason gave to me. I’m guessing that night we ran from the cops when I was at his house. I honestly couldn’t even tell. It looked pretty fresh and I guess it may have been a bit noticeable. I quietly mumble “Shit.” But not loud enough for her to hear. I make up an excuse and say “It’s not what you think it is mom. I burnt myself with my curling iron.” She puts her hand on her forehead out of a sigh of relief. “Oh thank God, I thought it must’ve been a hickey. Probably from that boy Jason you were recently hanging out with.” I reply “You grounded me remember? How could I have been hanging out with him?” She nods her head up and then walks over to the sink and does dishes while she says “You’re right. And I know my daughter isn’t white trash, she would never do something so slutty especially with an awful boy.” I’m easily and quickly offended but I don’t say anything. Did she really just pretty much call me trashy and slutty? Who was she to judge in the first place? I try to shrug it off, I mean I couldn’t even care less about what she thinks. She is my mother but damn that was pretty harsh.
I mean, Jason isn’t even my boyfriend. We’re not even dating and it feels like we kind of act like it sometimes. I have a hickey from a boy that isn’t even my boyfriend. The more I thought about it the more I was debating if my mom was right…
