"No drugs,alcohol,or weapons.You will have a curfew in this house.Since you and Jenna are older,I'll give you both until eleven o'clock to be in this house.If you're not in this house or walking in by that time,tough luck.Oh and no females in this house.Any questions,comments,or concerns?"
I shook my head.I didn't feel a need to comment.Walking in to this,I knew those would be the rules.
"Okay,well I have to go to work.I'll be back around twelve tonight.You kids have fun!"
Jenna's mom walked out of this house,leaving Jenna and I alone.
"Well she's uh,she's nice."
This caused Jenna to burst out in laughter.I loved her laugh.
"Yeah,she is.Once you get to know her of course.I have a question."
"Where's your stuff? How do you always have a different outfit everyday?"
"These are Ashton's clothes and I usually got ready at his house in the mornings."
"Then why didn't you just stay with him?"
I shrugged.I honestly never thought of that.Well I did,but never considered it.
"So you don't have any clothes and shoes of your own?"
Jenna grabbed a bag off the back of the couch and pulled out a set of car keys.She got up and grabbed my hand.
"I think it's time to do a little shopping then."
"Wow you bought a lot of bands tees and are those women's jeans?"
"What can I say,I like bands and no these aren't women's jeans."
"Then why are they so tight?"
She burst out in laughter,her face redder than I've ever seen before.
"Because they just are."
After going to what felt like a thousands clothing stores,we stopped at the food court.I was starving.
"Let's go to Panda Express!"
"You mean that Chinese place right next to Chick-Fil-A?"
"No way,I love Chick-Fil-A."
"Come on,just this once.I promise you're gonna love it."
I grabbed hold of her hand and led her to Panda Express.We had to wait in line,which wasn't that long.When we finally got to the cash register,I ordered the food.
"Hi,how may I help you today sir?"
"Hi,can I get two orders of the orange chicken with noodles please."
"Yes,that'll be $23.97"
I took out my wallet and paid for the food and in no time,we had our food.We found our seats and began eating.
"When did you get money?"
"I got paid Monday.I have a job."
"How come you couldn't afford anything if you had a job?"
I knew these questions would come sooner or later.I was completely prepared.I'll tell her everything,all of being true of course.
"I don't get paid much.Because of the lack of transportation,I'm not able to make it to work all of but two days usually."
"Oh,well that shouldn't be a problem anymore because you have me and my mom."
"Yeah,thanks again for helping me."
"No problem and this food is amazing!"
"I told you so."
