After dinner, Jack came over to my house so we could start working on the project. The assignment was to pick one of the wars and 'rewrite' the problems to make sure it doesn't happen. We chose the War Of 1812. We sat on the back patio table and laid all of our stuff out and Jack sits back, puts his feet on the other chair behind him and goes on his phone!
“Jack, put your phone away, we have to do this project.” great, is he one of those guys that pairs up with certain people that will do all the work for him and just tag along? Because if so, I'm not going to do it either, I will settle on the F, instead of that. No way.
“I can't. I have to stalk your insta.”
“What? No!” I try to grab his phone from him but he pulls it back and smiles at me.
“Why not? What are you hiding that's so bad?”
“I'm not hiding anything, you just... we need to get started here. Do that later.”
“Nah, I wanna do it now. I wanna see what your up to when little miss goodie-goodie is not in school.” he smiled at me.
“You're the second person to call me that.” I groan.
“Let's see... Miss. Elizabeth HollyAnn Perry. Born in Lewes, Delaware and moved to Miami, Florida when she was... 6 years of age.” he looked up from his phone at me. “Is that correct?”
“First off, my Liz, no one has called me Elizabeth for years. Second, how did you know that; I don't have that information on my Instagram.”
“Nah, I'm texting your sister.” he laughed and showed me his phone. Sure enough, he was talking to Ellie.
“Well, I'm glad one of us is talking to her then.”
“Why aren't you talking to your own sister?”
“Do you have any siblings Jack?”
“Molly and Laura. Why?” he nodded.
“So you know how annoying they can be. Always in your business and never agreeing with you about anything, and always being bitchy and idiotic and...” I stop and shake my hand with a smile. “Yeah.”
“Actually no I don't. Not really. They are older then I am and we get along pretty well even though they are older and girls.” he shrugged. “But what did she do?”
Should I tell him? Why not; he seems cool. How would he react to it? “Well, she knew I liked Hayes and we had sex. I was just thinking how cool it would be if we were together and she got mad and said no, if she found out we were together then she would break us up.”
“You like Hayes?”
“Yeah. No. Not really. I don't even know anymore, he's kinda weird.”
“Weird? Weird how?”
“I don't know, just like... weird.” I shrug.
“And you slept with him?”
“Oh.” he bit the inside of his cheek.
“Nothing.” he looked down at his phone then quickly back at me. “Oh man, I'm sorry! I forgot about my dad, I was suppose to pick him up before I came here. I have to go.”
“Oh. Okay, I'll talk to you later then.”
He smiled at me. “Yeah, see you later.” he puts his books back in his book bag and left out the back gate, walking fast to the front of the house.
