She grabbed her skateboard
Jamie: call me?
Dee: I’ll think about it
She gave Deanna a kiss on the cheek then skated down the drive way and around the corner before Deanna could process what just happened. She shook her head and got down off the dryer. She went in the house Bryan was sitting on the stool at the island eating leftovers from yesterday.
Bryan: so when is you guys first date?
Dee: you were ease dropping!?
Bryan: no I was just fucking with you. But I guess you guys do have a first date. Does Don know?
Dee: its not a date. She’s just coming over tomorrow for dinner. And no Don doesn’t know [sitting on the stool in front of him]
Bryan: oh can I tell him? I cant stand that dude
Dee: there is nothing to tall him because its not a date
Bryan: but when you break up with him… can I do it?
Dee: if that makes you happy B
Bryan: oh it does.
Deanna laughed grabbed one of his french-fries then walked away.
Bryan: only let you do that because you made them
Dee: I know [calling over her shoulder]
She went upstairs in her room and closed her door. She grabbed her book and laid across the bed. She started to read and her phone rang. She grabbed it off of the nightstand
Jamie: that really is cute
Jamie: how come you didn’t call me
Dee: I wanted to make sure you had time to skate before I called.
Jamie: oh that’s so nice of you
Dee: yeah I’m a nice person
Jamie: you want to go to the mall?
Dee: I really need to finish this book
Jamie: did I say you were a nerd?
Jamie: ok just making sure
Jamie: ok well call me!
Dee: ok I’ll call you when I finish a few chapters of my book
Jamie: ok that works. Bye
She hung up the phone and went back to reading. A few seconds later her phone rang again.
Don: hey baby
Dee: hey Don [in a sigh]
Don: what you doing baby?
Dee: reading a book
Don: you want to go lunch right now? I promise no sexual content at all. I miss you

Don: I’ll have you back by two
Dee: [Sigh] fine
Don: sweet. I’ll be there in a few.
Dee: ok bye

She hung up the phone and kept reading. Twenty minuets later Bryan yelled up the steps
Bryan: ah Dee! Don’s here
She got up pushed her hair down grabbed her purse and went downstairs
Don: you look nice
Dee: thanks. B!
Bryan: [coming out of the kitchen] yo!
Dee: I’ll be back by two. Can you clean the kitchen for me and tell ma that I left when she comes out of her office?
Bryan: can do big sis
Dee: ok bye
She grabbed her jacket off the couch and they went out the door. He opened the door for her and she got in. he closed it and walked around the car stopping at the trunk grabbing something out of it then got in the car and shut the door
Don: for you
He handed her a long rectangular box
Don: open it
She opened it. It was a gold charm bracelet with little hearts on it
Dee: oh its nice
Don: the hearts our for every month we’ve been together
Don: yeah. I know I’m a great boyfriend
Dee: yeah thanks
Don: you don’t want to put it on?
Dee: oh it doesn’t match what I have on
Don: ok I don’t want my girl to look jacked
She closed the box and put it down in her purse. It was a silent ride to the mall. They pulled in and parked.
Dee: I thought we were going out to eat
Don: we are what’s better then the food court for lunch?
He got out the car she sighed and rolled her eyes. He opened her door for her
Don: no problem my dear.
He went to kiss her she moved her face so he kissed her on the cheek
Dee: lip gloss
They were walking through the parking lot. Deanna spotted Jamie’s green Chevy and hoped that they would not run into each other inside they got in the food court and Deanna was sipping at her coffee
Don: you sure you don’t want eat?
Dee: yeah I kind of made a big deal out of ordering take-out tonight and mom will be pissed if I don eat
Don: oh. How is your mother?
Dee: she’s ok always working I with she would take some time off
Don: she has to bring in the money or no one else will
Dee: I work
Don: you have a job?
Dee: yeah I’ve had one for the last four months
Don: Damn I never noticed
Deanna just shook her head and took a sip of her coffee she looked over and saw Jamie leaning against the wall across from them shaking her head
Dee: shit [she mumbled]
Don: what you say hun?
Dee: oh nothing
The next thing she knew Jamie was tapping he on the shoulder. Deanna looked up at her and put on a face surprised face
She got up and gave her a hug and whispered in her ear
Dee: I’ll explain later
Jamie nodded her head as she sat down
Dee: what a surprise. Her Selena
Dee: Don this is Jamie and Selena friends of mine
Don: is nice to meet you ladies
Jamie: its nice to meet the man that Dee wont shut up about
Selena: yeah she talks about you all the time [sarcastically]
Jamie elbowed her in the side
Selena: what? You said she wanted to break up with him
Jamie and Deanna gave her a look
Selena: and…that’s my cue to go get some fries
Jamie: yeah that’s a good idea.
She walked away. Deanna and Jamie exchanged looks
Don: Excuse me ladies. Sorry to break up the staring contest but Deanna you want to break up with me?
Dee: well [looking at him then at the table] I’ve been king of trying to do that for the last couple of months now
Don: you have?
He was shocked
Jamie: damn dude I knew that and I met the girl yesterday.
Dee: all the text messages the e-mails the hanging up in your face. That wasn’t just for shits and giggles I really meant it and you just didn’t get it
Don: well fine then give me my bracelet back
Dee: cool [she pulled it out her purse] oh and we’ve been dating eight months not six
Dee: see this is why I wanted to break up with you. You have no idea about any thing. First off I hate gold second the food court is not a date and third off you just think with your member and not your brain.
Don: well you will never see my member or my brain again
Dee: ok that’s fine with me.
He left and walked out the door
Jamie: where’s your book?
Jamie: I’m just fucking with you its all good. [sitting down]
Dee: I promise the only reason I came was to break up with him
Jamie: and Selena just sped up that process
Selena: what did I do? [pulling up a chair and sitting in it the wrong way]
Dee: oh Boardwalk fries
Selena: want some [holding out the cup of fries]
She took a couple of fries
Jamie: can I have some?
Jamie: your just mad because I can skate better then you
Dee: oh how was that?
Selena: she busted her ass
Jamie: twice. How many times did you fall Selena?
Selena: lets not talk about that.
Dee: you going to give me a ride home?
Jamie: yeah were just waiting for Selena’s girl to get off
Dee: I didn’t know you were dating some one
Selena: she one of your kind
Dee: my kind? [raising an eyebrow]
Jamie: she means she’s a straight girl
Dee: why you say it like we’re vampires or something
Selena: I did not.
Dee: you did
Selena: sorry I just meant that she is straight…or was straight…or whatever motions you hetero’s go through
Dee: if she’s with you she’s not straight
Selena: does that mean your not straight because your with Jamie?
Dee: we’re not together yet
Dee: did I say that out loud?
Selena: yeah you did
Selena: [looking over Deanna’s shoulder] there’s my girl
Deanna turned around and saw the tall girls walking towards them in a pair of skinny jeans her work shirt. Deanna noticed the girl from her class last year.
Dee: your dating Angel? [to Selena]
Angel: are you dating Jamie?
Jamie: not yet
Angle: ok …uh Selena lets go I have to go get my sister
She got up and gave Jamie dap and Deanna a hug then they left
Jamie: what was that about?
Dee: I cant stand that female
Jamie: why no
Dee: she is a hypocrite. She claims she would never look at a female in a sexual way but now…
Jamie: she’s dating Selena. I get it
Dee: yeah. I’ve got to get home and finish my clothes.
Jamie: you don’t want to go out to eat?
Dee: I don’t want to get in this nasty greasy food court
Jamie: I meant us going out like to buffalo wild wings or something
Dee: oh no wings

Jamie: no I love Taco Bell
Dee: me too

They looked at each other for a second
Dee: um…[she giggled] we should go I told B I’d be back by two
Jamie: oh yeah I’ll have you home by curfew goody-two-shoes
Dee: ha, ha
They got up and walked to the car in silence giggling every now and then when they bumped into each other and looked at each other. They got to the car Jamie opened the door for Deanna. She smiled at her as she climbed in the car. Deanna giggled at her big cheesy smile. Jamie closed the door and got in the car. She started the car and pulled out. They were waiting at the red light Deanna put her hand on top of Jamie’s hand that was on the gear shift.
Jamie: what are you doing?
She had her head leant back on her headrest looking over at her. Jamie leaned over to give her a kiss. The car behind them honked the horn. Jamie looked up and the light was green
Jamie: sit see what you do to me girl [driving]
Dee: I didn’t do it [still looking at her]
Jamie: you did. your just to damn hot.
Dee: tell me something I don’t know
Jamie giggled. They got to Taco Bell Jamie pulled in and parked.
Jamie: ok its 1:45. Do you want to go in and eat of do you want to go through the drive thru and eat back in your garage while you do your laundry

She smiled put on her shades and pulled into the drive thru. Deanna giggled.
Dee: I love those shades
Jamie: yeah? Here [taking them off] you can have them
Dee: I cant take your shades
Jamie: oh its ok
She opened the center console and pulled out a pair of shades just like the ones she had in her hand.
Dee: what do you do collect sun glasses? [taking the glasses out Jamie’s hand]
Jamie: no. my dad owns a little company that sales accessories [putting them on]
Dee: that must mean you can get a lot of free jewelry.
She put on her shades then looked over at Jamie who looked at her and shook her head
Jamie: damn we aint even dating yet and she already wants jewelry. Jamie what did you get yourself into?
Deanna laughed and they got to the mic thing
Jamie: what did you want
Deanna: what ever you get
Jamie: you sure
Dee: I’m pretty sure we’d order the same thing
The female voice that came out the box was bored and unenthusiastic
Voice: how may I help you?
Jamie: can I get two fully loaded nacho’s and two large mountain dews.
Voice: ok you total is $10.83 pull around.
Jamie pulled around and looked at Deanna
Dee: exactly what I would have ordered
Jamie: your lying
Dee: no I’m serious I always order nachos and some times a burrito if I’m in the mood. Its like the nachos have less grease then the other thing on the menu
Jamie: you really are a health freak huh?
Dee: I try to stay away form all the fat foods but I’m weak when it comes to some things
Dee: oh, chocolate, coffee, Taco bell
Jamie: what else makes you weak?
They looked at each other not noticing the girl standing in the window
Girls: [she cleared her throat] 10.83
Jamie rolled her eyes pulled her wallet out her back pocket and gave the girl her card. Deanna laughed at Jamie.
Dee: you should of seen your face
Jamie: its like every time some one interrupts
Dee: you’ll be ok
She rubbed Jamie’s shoulder. Jamie took her hand and kissed it. The girl came back to the window handed her the card and the receipt then gave her the food and drinks. She handed Deanna the food and put the drinks in the cup holders and then pulled off
Jamie: that girl had attitude problems
Dee: yeah she did
They got to Deanna’s place.

Dee: yeah that was smooth.
Jamie laughed Deanna looked up at her
Jamie: yeah your graceful
She leaned down and gave Deanna a kiss. They kissed a couple of times Jamie leaned her against the car and they kept kissing. They stopped Jamie rested her forehead on Deanna’s they were both breathing hard

They started kissing again. Bryan walked behind them.
Bryan: told you. You had to take it
Dee: [breaking their kiss] what? [she was breathing hard]
Jamie: noting. I have to go
They let go of each other. Deanna grabbed her food off the car and put it on the dryer then walked over to Jamie who was standing by the open driver side door.

Mrs. H: ok [ripping open a piece of mail]
She went out into the garage and took her clothes out of the dryer and put the ones in the washer in the dryer grabbed her basket and went inside. After she grabbed her food she went up stairs and sat on her bed. She put the food on her dresser and took her phone out of her pocket then started to fold clothes. After she folded her clothes she was laying across her bed reading her book. About 7:30 she was down stairs in the garage getting her clothes out the dryer. The wind blew and made her shiver. She went and pushed the button to close the garage door. When it was almost closed a skateboard rolled under it which stopping it. Deanna stopped the board with her foot and opened the garage door back up and Jamie was standing there.
Dee: loose something [kicking it back to her]

She kissed Deanna’s hand. Deanna tried to give her a kiss but Jamie stopped her.
Jamie: isn’t your mom home?
Dee: your not going to kiss me because my mom is home?
Jamie: I’m trying to help you out I’m sure you don’t want us to start making out right here and your mom walks out here and catches us.
Dee: [sigh] I hate when your right

Jamie: I am sweet. [putting her skateboard down]
Dee: but I could care less if she sees.
Jamie: damn I let out the beast in you girl
