“Where’s your car?” She asked.
“I don’t have a car.” I answered.
“What!” She yelled as she stopped in her spot.
“Do you want a ride or not?” I asked a little to angrily then what I intended.
“What do you have?” She asked, raising an eyebrow.
“That.” I answered, pointing to my jet black Harley Davidson motorcycle.
“That? Since when do you have a bike?” She said wide eyed.
“Uh…I don’t know…” She said, thinking hard about it.
“You are already late…” I said, rocking back and forth on the balls of my feet.
“Fine.” She huffed.
I got on my bike and waited patiently for her to get on.
“I suggest you hold on.” I turned and smiled at her. She reached her hands around my waist and held on. I kicked off the kickstand and turned it on.
“Ready?!” I yelled over the roar of the motor.
“WHAT!?” She yelled. I nodded and started to go. She rocked back uneasily and held her embrace on me tighter, resting her chin on my shoulder.
We got to the school and I turned off the engine. I turned my head to look at her. She was still holding onto me for dear life, with her eyes shut tight.
“Phyllis?” I said, tapping one of her hands around my waist.
“Is it over?” She said by my ear.
“Yes, you can let go now.” I laughed. She let go and I could see that she had been white knuckling it the whole way.
“Are you all right?” I asked, turning to look at her as she got off the bike.
“Just fine.” She said, smiling uneasily.
“All right. Uh…do you know those girls?” I asked, noticing two girls standing on the steps of the school. One girl had long brown hair, pulled back in a braid, glasses, jeans and a green sweatshirt. The other girl had blonde hair, pulled back in a ponytail, a blue shirt and a pair of black pants. They both had strange grins on their faces.
Phyllis turned around, saw them and turned back to me. She had a look of almost horror on her face.
“What’s wrong?” I whispered.
“I’m going to be embarrassed.” She said, letting her face go flush. I just laughed.
