8. Chapter 8
The ride to the garage was fairly uneventful. Both Julia and Tobey were both in a comfotable silence that was shared between two people who really knew and cared for eachother. Tobey had seriously missed Julia, And now that they both had some rest they both looked better. Granted it was still 8 in the morning, But they would just manage to skip any traffic. The roads were practically empty and this meant that the mustang could easily slice it's way through the streets with ease.
Tobey was silently very excited too get to the garage and see his crew. He hadn't seen them for a while and honestly missed the banter they shared. Ever since the death of pete, The crew vowed that they would become a lot more involved in eachothers lives and that they would stick together and make decisions together instead of making decisions without thinking. Pete's death could have been avoided if it wasn't for that fact Tobey's ego seemed to over power his brain on way too many occasions when it came to Dino and their shared history. He knew that getting back into racing wouldn't be hard because he knew that his recent race and daring stunts had even made the world aware of him and his lifestyle. He had sort of became a celebrity within hours. And celebrities meant fans. And fans meant new racers.
Winning would be tough.
But he was Tobey Marshall and had the whole crew of Marshall motors behind him! Winning would be a piece of cake...! He now even had Julia on their team and despite the initial hesitation, Tobey would have regretted not letting her in the team. She may have been in a life and death situation, But he knew that if she wanted to leave all she had to do was pick up her bags and go. No one would stop her. It is her life and they can't stop her from living it. Tobey hoped she wouldn't leave. He didn't know what he would do if their friendship became nothing but a distant memory which faded like a reflection in a pool...
"Hey Julia.. Do you know which way to go? Haven't been in this part of town for years.." Tobey asked whilst his cheeks flushed violently. Julia laughed and thrust her hand out and pointed to the left. "Just down this street, Turn left and you will see it." Julia said, And Tobey followed her instructions carefully.
Once he pulled down the street he saw the shabby building sticking out down the road. Tobey knew he should have been feeling happy but butterflies grew heavily in his stomach. Tobey felt the color slowly drain from his face. Not that he could turn back now though, Finn had obviously heard the car down the road and had ran out onto the street. Tobey wished he had something quieter instead of a big beast that he knew could be heard from miles away. Finn had wasted no time in calling benny and joe out to welcome the pair back home. The ford pulled into the small drive way leading into the garage. It didn't even feel like the car had stopped before Julia leaped from the vehicle to grab each of the men and hug them tightly.
