I was in the spare room just playing small notes on the guitar. It was 5pm and Sam was out with Chris.
Today I had spoken to my parents and my little sister Aliyah. I missed them so so so much.
I still couldn't believe Barclay dating Jo was a bet. Like shes an amazing girl. But as soon as it was said he actually liked her, I was glad the bet was over.
I was bored and everyone was out. But besides Jo since Barclay and his family were out of town.
It was nice staying at this house, Derek was part of my team and now he was my guardian along with Carol.
"You all right there son?" I looked to see it was Derek.
"Yea. Uhm is it okay if I go out. Im going to see Jo." I asked.
"Of course you can." He responded.
"But be home for dinner which is at 8!" Carol screamed.
"Don't worry I will. Can I borrow the car?"
"Yea take Sam's. She went in Chris's." He handed me the keys and I left.
I was on my way to Jo's to complete some homework. It was Sunday so it was basically due tomorrow.
"Hey Shawn." Jo said as she opened the door.
"Hi." I replied back.
"Come in." She said as she led the way.
"I don't have long. Carols calling me home by 8." I laughed.
"Don't worry." Jo laughed too.
Half way through, I decided to speak about Barclay.
"So you and Barcs?" She looked up. "How did you guys meet?"
"Uh well when we first walked into school, James walked up to us and introduced himself and the other boys. Barclay wasn't there. They then invited us to their table and he was there in a full make out session with some girl."
"Hahaha so it wasn't exactly a good first meeting."
"No not really. I thought he was a douche. Sam said hes sweet once you get to know him and wel yea he is. Were dating and im falling for him hard."
"I know he is too."
"Not think I know. When I first met them they were really funny. It was nice to have guys my age to hang around with. "
"I agree. But if im honest when Barclay first asked me out I was completely gobsmacked. I thought he was joking or that all of this was some sort of joke but it didn't seem like that."
"You were over thinking Jo."
"Hmm. I tend to do that."
It was 7:45 and I needed to go.
"I got to go. Thanks for helping me."
"Stay. Tom will be here soon."
"Id love to but I need to run an errand then go home."
"Oh okay. Youre welcome by the way.
I went to the car and drove to the super market to get some stuff for the salad. Carol text me.
"IM HOME!" I screamed as I went to the kitchen.
"Thanks hun. You had fun?" Carol said as she gave me a small peck on the cheek.
"It was homework. Now that is not fun." I laughed.
"Hmm you are right." With that I took of my jacket to help her.
It was a nice thing to do since they let me stay. Sam walked in ten minutes later and she helped too.
I learned today that Barclay must really have regretted the bet and I should not tell Jo.
