Right when I got home (Hayley and I agreed it was too late for her to come over today, so she'll come over tomorrow), I left with my family to go far into the woods to hunt. We did it as quickly as possible, and we were back before school started the next day. I wanted to hunt as much as possible, even though Hayley was not tempting to me at all. I wanted to be safe, just in case. I don't want to take chances.
As I was pulling out of the driveway in my car (a black Mazda RX-8, which is a sports car), I saw Hayley 3 houses down walking to her car, a blue Toyota. I quickly drove up there and honked the horn when I got to her driveway. I parked there. Right when I honked, she jumped. She quickly looked around and looked relieved when it was me.
I opened my door. "Hey, I didn't know you lived 3 houses down, or even in my neighborhood!" I said.
She grinned. "I didn't know either, but I'm glad we do live that close together!"
She seemed to be waiting for something.
I just realized. "Well, would you like to ride with me?"
She tried to act surprised. "Well, yeah, sure," she said, but I could see the twinkle in her eyes. She really, really liked me.
When we got in the car, I said, "Why did you jump when I honked? If it's personal, you don't have to answer that."
She had a pained expression on her face. Quickly, I said, "I'm so sorry. Just think about something else. Umm," I said, glancing at the radio, "what kind of music do you like? I'll put the radio on."
She still had that expression on her face. I put my arm around her. "Look, just forget about it. I'm sorry. Please, forgive me."
"I'm not mad at you." she said. "And it's extremely personal. But I think it's time to tell someone."
I quickly said, "Really, if you don't want to tell me, please don't."
"No, I want to." she said. "I've just never told anyone. My mom already knows. And I'm gald she's doing something about it."
"Oh, okay. Well, go ahead, then." I said. I quickly pulled into the nearest parking lot and parked the car. I wanted to be ready for whatever this would be.
"Well..." she started.
