For the past week I have been talking to Jonathan, and the closer we got and to be honest, I really liked it.
Jonathan H: You are so annoying at times :D
Me: You are so annoying ALL the time, so I think I won!
Jonathan H: Touche, But to be honest, you know I am sexy.
Me: In your demented dreams.
Jonathan H: Yours dreams can come true if you try.
Me: P A T H E T I C
Jonathan H: Is that sexy sarcasm I smell?
Me: Nah, just regular old sarcasm.
Jonathan H: Why do you deflect my flirting?
Me: Because I rather not be loved.
Jonathan H: And why is that?
Me: Because the last time I let a stranger get to me, they stole my money, and almost killed me and my family.
Jonathan: Nice joke
Me: Why do you assume every time I tell the truth, you think I lie.
Jonathan: Wait? Oh my gosh! I am sooo sorry. Just forget everything. I am going to take a walk.
Me: Nah just kidding
Jonathan: Damn you
JONATHAN H HAS SIGNED OUT
I slammed my computer closed and jumped up. I walk to my window into the street.
I watch the kids across the street play basketball and Cassidy walking down the street with a box. WAIT CASSIDY WALKING NEAR MY HOUSE WITH A BOX!
I dash from the window and I run out the door and down the stairs. I watch through the peephole of my door to see she is walking toward my house.
She walked up to the porch and set the box down. I could slightly read who the box was addressed to. Charlie. I knew what it was. Something dangerous. Something that is going to hurt Charlie, or put him in a coma like Nick or even worse, kill him. So I made the choice myself. I threw open the door and picked up the box. I ran back inside and into the living room. I used my long nail to cut through the cheap tape. I set my hand on the top, taking a deep breathe. Anything can be in there, a pie in the face, another smoke bomb.
I raised my hand and let the side burst open. Flashes of light exploded from it and I flew back.
Ah that's right.
It was a firecracker.
And I just got blown up.
