After I went Christmas shopping, I stopped by the UPS to send back the present.
There was a receipt so she can at least get her money back, she at least deserves that.
"$5.00" the lady says, taking the package. I set the money on the counter and walked out.
My phone went off.
New IM message
I clicked on the notification. It brought me to my IM page.
New IM message from: Jonathan H
I clicked on his name.
Jonathan H: How was christmas shopping?
Me: Fine... you know, just the same old same old.
Jonathan H: Wow, tell that story again bro.
Me: Shut up bro.
Jonathan H: So, is Cassidy still mad at you?
Me: Yeah, I don't think we will make up.
Jonathan H: Oh, sorry, I kinda caused this.
Me: You didn't do anything, it was all her.
I opened my car door and jumped in.
I started the car when my phone went off again.
Jonathan H: Ok, whatever you say.
Me: SHUT UP! I AM DRIVING! UNLESS YOU WANT ME TO DIE, STOP TALKING
Jonathan H: Dead yet?
Jonathan H: How bout now?
Jonathan H: Now?
Jonathan H: Dead? Yeah? No? Maybe so?
Me: YOU ARE GOING TO BE DEAD WHEN I AM ---
Jonathan H: Brooke? Hello! YOU BETTER NOT BE JOKING. BROOKE!!!
Me: Hey sorry, I had to make a sharp turn, almost missed it.
Jonathan H: DAMN YOU! I AM MAD AT YOU, YOU ALMOST MADE ME THINK YOU GOT INTO A CAR CRASH
Me: I would need a lot more than some flirty stranger to get me to crash my car.
Jonathan H: So we aren't friends? So when I thought I was stuck in the friend zone, I was REALLY stuck in the stranger zone.
Me: Yes, and so far the friend zone is in lockdown so have fun getting in.
Jonathan H: I am flirty (quote) so I can go through anything
Me: Yeah bye :D
I shut my screen off and toss it to the passenger seat. I wanted to text more but I was afraid I was going to blush so much, my cheeks would burst into flames. There was something I felt when I talked to Jonathan, hate? Nah, Regret? No way, love? uhh let's change the subject.
I pulled into the driveway and turned off the car.
"BROOKE!" my mother screams, throwing open the door and storming out, holding something that was letting out solid white smoke.
"What?" I ask, jumping out of the car and slamming the door.
"Your brother got something in the mail, it was a box so he opened it and this blew up in his face!" she screams, holding up a smoke bomb.
"That was Cassidy." I grumble under my breathe.
"YES I KNOW WHO IT IS! SHE HAS A RETURN ADDRESS LIKE A IDIOT WOULD WHEN THEY SEND SMOKE BOMBS THROUGH THE MAIL!" she shrieks throwing it into the road.
"Is Nick ok?" I ask, hugging my mom, because that wasn't exactly a christmas present from Santa.
"Yeah, just smoke inhalation, he is at the hospital now , just to make sure nothing else is wrong." she says, patting my back. I pulled away from the hug and ran back to the car, snatching my phone off the seat and slammed the door closed. I pulled up the IM app and hit Cassidy's name.
Me: Thank you for smoke bombing my YOUNG BROTHER
Cassidy: Your welcome, he deserved it
Me: If he is REALLY hurt I swear...
Cassidy: Have fun with that
Me: My mother is having panic attacks
Cassidy: Good for her, hopes she dies.
Me: Glad you say that, because she is reading it RIGHT NOW
Cassidy: I was totes joking.
Me: Tell that to your mother, who is NOW going to ground you
Cassidy: Whatever you say...
Cassidy: DANG IT BROOKE, I AM SO GOING TO KILL YOU
Cassidy: I am sorry for what she did to your brother, she is will be grounded for a LONG LONG TIME.
I smirk and shove my phone into my back pocket. I was having a pretty good day.
