You & Me Against the World

Esteban only has one person who truly cares for him and that's his Tia (aunt) , but that changes when he gets sent off to live with his dad. He soon meets a troubled girl who turns out to play a big role in his life. They go through some life changing events together and begin to grow feelings in matter of days, but the problem is ... Will they make it through the obstacles that come their way.


12. Taking care of business.


We went to Bank of America and I waited in the truck for Esteban. This whole thing just had me feeling funny. But it also felt somewhat relieving because then I wouldn't have to worry about paying my debts, but then again... Esteban shouldn't be paying them off.. We aren't even officially together. 

He knocked on the truck window and I unlocked the doors for him .

"I got the money so now we just need to go to wal mart really fast." He said.

"Why?" I asked.

"I think it will be better if you and I get pre paid phones instead of having to go to a pay phone." He explained.

"Oh, well that's a good idea." I said.

So we were at wal mart and we got two simple flip phones and about 20 minutes on both of the phones. We entered each others number into the new cell phones . As we were driving off and Esteban dialed the number of the main guy who was after me.

"Hey, well I need to take care of this now because I have some other business to take care of. So if you want your money then I suggest you wait for me to call you from this number one more time and I will tell you where to pick up the money."

I'm assuming the guy agreed because right before the call had ended he said, "talk to you soon."

He turned to me and then said, "we need to find somewhere to take the money where no one will find it before they pick it up..."

So I start thinking of places.  

"Well remember that speed boat that was in the water last night?" I said. 

"Yeah?" He said with the most confused face I've ever seen.

"Well maybe we can go back to the marina, find that boat, and then leave the money in that boat." I said.

"That's a great idea." He said smiling at me.

So we go to the marina and start looking for the speed boat that nearly killed us.

"There aren't that many speed boats here so it shouldn't be that hard to find." He said.

I didn't respond because I was too determined to find that speed boat. 

I walked and walked for about 15 minutes, then I see it. So I called Esteban over and he runs over with the money and places it in the compartment where all the life vests were. 

After that we went back to the truck and parked in a place where we were able to keep an eye on the boat, but whoever went to go and get the money wasn't able to see us.

Esteban called the guy back and told him where the money was and if they weren't here within twenty five minutes then he wasn't getting his money.

Twenty minutes later we see a black Tahoe pull up with a truck load of guys. And about five of them got out to get the money. They found it, went back to the truck, then left.  

Esteban and I waited about 10 minutes there then he walked out and threw his phone in the water. And we kept the one that I didn't use. 

So far the day was going alright and we checked one thing off of our to do list. Now it was time for us to go and pack and head for the airport.
