22. Chapter 22

I’m tired. I haven’t been sleeping tonight because I told Nate I didn’t had the time to come to his place, and it probably was best if he didn’t came her either because of Simone. Worst decision ever. I had time and Simone didn’t mind him, but I was too nervous about meeting his parents that I needed some time alone to freak out. I freaked out about everything, I had pulled all my clothes out so I could find the perfect set, but my clothes isn’t pretty enough. I have a more relaxed and street style. Simone came in when everything was on the floor including me, she asked if I needed help and I noded. She found me some clothes from her and my closet. She even packed the bag for me with small notes in it as information about what I should wear and when. That made me relax ‘cause I shouldn't think for myself.

Nate came in through the door he looked nervous too.

“Are you ready?” One of his feets couldn’t stand still, it stepped to a imaginating melody. I walked over to him and stepped on his moving foot so it would stop. He smiled his wry smile in return.


“I hadn’t even noticed that I did it”

“I know. Why are you so nervous?”


“I'm not nervous. Why do you think that?” I looked skeptic at him, I knew he was nervous he just wouldn’t tell me.

“You have no reason to be nervous. They already love you” I kissed him in the corner of his mouth and walked back to my bed where I should pack the last things as my toothbrush.

“When are we going?”


“In a hour or some” I closed my bag and pulled him over to me by the hand.
I started to kiss him deeper than before, this was a different kiss. The others was to get him to relax this was to get his pulse up.

“What are you doing?” He whispered it to me while I kissed his neck.

“What do you think I’m doing? We have an hour” I only stopped my kissing so I could convince him, he didn’t need much convincing because before I knew had he taken by bag on the floor and pulled my pants of me.

“We are going to be a little late” I didn’t mind. This was what we needed to do to get relaxed. We needed to come close and calm down our nerves.

“Yes we are. We have to get some clothes on and drive” I rolled over me and sat on the edge of the bed. My fingers just needed to touch him so they made small circles on his back. He sight at my touch.


“You have to stop that so we can get moving” I sat up and moved my fingers from his back to his front. I’m teasing him. After he have sight for some times do I stop and get dressed. He is also teasing me, but the difference between us is that I can pretend not to notice he can’t. He get dressed too when he can see that I won’t be affected by it.

“What time is it?” I look at my watch, we are 30 minutes late.


“Why is Simone not here? Her classes haven’t started yet have they?”

“She left last night. She didn’t had her earplugs and she needed the sleep so she slept elsewhere” I blush because he then know that he could have slept over and made sure that I didn’t get nightmares.

He doesn’t comment on that fact, he just nod. I can’t figure out if he is mad or disappointed.


“Are you mad at me?”

“Why should I be mad at you?” He takes my bag and walk out off the door, he waits till I have locked it before he starts walking again.


“Because I lied about you could stay over”

“I’m not mad”


“Then what? Don’t say you don’t care” I get a little mad now, why can’t he just say it?

“I just thought that we were over this. That you would tell me if something bothered you” He keeps walking toward the car, he doesn’t even look at me.

“We are. There is nothing there bother me except you being pissed” I’m about to give up, maybe I shouldn’t meet his parents today.


“Why didn’t you tell me that you didn’t wanted to sleep in the same bed as me?” So that is what it is about.


“It’s not because I didn’t wanted to sleep in the same bed as you. I will always be near you” I take his hand so he will stop walking away from me.


“I love you and I want to be around you all the time. But yesterday did I freak out, I’m so nervous about meeting your parents that I took everything out and putted it on the floor, I just needed to think”


“And you can’t think when I’m around?”


“No. When your around can I only think of you, it’s an amazing thought, but I had to be smart yesterday and think everything through” He accept my reason but he doesn’t like it. We walk hand in hand too the car.

I’m surprised. I thought we would drive in a old Toyota, but this isn’t old and it ain’t a Toyota. It’s a Mini Cooper.


“Who’s car is this?”


“My sisters, she have mine” I didn’t knew he had a car.


“Why have you never told me that you have a car?”


“It never came up” Stupid excuse. I won’t start a fight when we just became friends, but I don’t like him keeping things from me. If he have hidden a car what more have he hidden from me? I have opened my heart to him and told him my biggest fears, and he doesn’t even tell me about a goddamn car?
We both get into the car, Nate is the one who is driving since I haven’t got a permission to drive in America only in Europe. I look out of the window, I’m trying to get calm again. It’s not a big deal that he haven’t told me he had a car, but it’s a big deal that he is hiding things from me. He would hate if I did that to him. While I look out of the window do I see a mom and her daughter on the street, they are about to cross the road when I remember Bella. I promised to call her after New Year but I have forgotten. I take my phone from my pocket and write a quick text to her.


Hi Bella
I don’t know if you remember me, but I’m Daisy who you met on the plain from London. I wanted to hear if you wanted to drink a cup of coffee next week?


I pressed send just when I saw Nate was looking at me.


“Who are you texting?” He  sound suspicious.


“Just a girl I met on the plain from London to NY”


“Why have you never told me about her?”


“I had forgotten all about her until I saw a woman cross the road just now” It’s not a big deal so why is he so mad?

“Don’t get mad about it. I didn’t hide it on purpose” I’m the one who is mad now.


“I didn’t hide the fact that I have a car either” I don’t answer him. If I say anymore will our fight just be worse. I look out of the window again, Nate turn on the radio so the silence won’t boil our anger. This is definitely the best day to meet his parents. It take us long time to get out of the city, there is so much traffic and it moves slow. This is why I only walk or take the subway.
