*Later That Tuesday Morning*
"I mean I guess she okay. She ain't bleedin' . . .
"Well you didn't have to get smart."
"Roc, Jalila y'all need to stop flirtin' Now"
"It's cute and all that you care but she fine I promise. Now can we go home?"
"She's right I'm perfectly fine." I said sitting up quickly shading my eyes from the sun's glare.
"Then why you sittin' up slowly?" Asked Princeton
"Cause my back hurts." I replied icily
"So you ain't so fine after all."
"Whateve'. 'Lila we gonna go home or what?"
"Or what. We stayin' here for the rest of the afternoon they invited us to watch a movie with them. Jamal comin' too." She looked me up and down, "You the one who got us into this."
"Okay sure I'll get Jamal." And before anyone could protest I zipped straight out the door. It wasn't a very far walk to her house ,she live next door but I lived across the street from her, but it felt like forever. I took my time getting to her house. Pickin' flower watching cars pass and when I got to the door I stood there just waiting thinkin'.
"What you expectin' the door to open itself?" Jamal teased
"Na . . . Hey you sister what you to come join us over the neighbor,s house ,they boys."
"And you let my sis alone . . .in a house . . . filled with boys . . .you gotta be kidding me." Not even looking at at me, he closed the door and stood there.
"Where they house at ?!?!"
"Next door." I said trying not to sound stupid but failing anyway.
"Let's got then." Jamal snapped and turned and began to walk away.
"Dang what took y'all so long?" Jalila asked
"This chick." Jamal said pointing at me.
"Shut up and sit down." I commanded.
"On a happier not what movie you wanna watch?" Princeton asked then I began to fall asleep.
"Ummm tour friends are getting ready ready to go home you wanna go home or are you okay with sleepin' on me" I sat up so quick you couldn't even measure my speed.
"Thanks for wakin' her up. It's amazing how she didn't wake up earlier. She a light sleeper you know."
"It's cool." Princeton mused.
"Let's go 'Lyah. You Mamma will have a fit if you come home later then 10 pm on a week night. Especially since we with boys let's go." Now I knew this was a doggone lie I could stay out 'till 11 pm and 12 am on the weekends. She just wanted to talk about them. Still a little bit embarrassed from laying on Princeton's arm I uttered,
" See you guys later." And followed 'Lila out the house.
