The story so far:
"Thank the Lord for whoever invented trucks!" I exclaimed as I climbed into my truck.
If it weren't for a truck I'd be stuck in homeschool or walking home. Believe me, walking twelve miles to and from school, isn't my idea of a great time. Don't get me wrong, I love exercise, but not in the rain. Rainy days are only fun on a dirtbike track.
Just thinking about dirtbiking made me even more bumbed about my day off. I never go riding without Meghan, not just because she's my best friend. I had come to realize in the past few months that I had a hidden affection for Meghan tht went deeper than our friendship. Meghan had been dating a guy named David for a little over two months, and up until she broke up with him last week, I had benn blood-boilong jealous.
I glanced aroud the parking lot and realized everyone had already left school. I turned the key in the ignition, and fired up my nineteen-ninety-three Ford pick-up. Before I knew it I was pulling into my driveway and putting back into park.
I heard the song "Redneck Woman" by Gretchen Wilson going off in my coat pocket, and I grinned. Meghan had set that ring tone to my phone the night before. Mainly because I wouldn't answer it when I had her sharing my parents ringtone for my phone. She used to get so mad because I thought that it was my parents instead of her calling. I laughed when she finally changed it last night. I can still she the grin on her face, and the way she showed up at my door with that look of totally mischief about her.
I chuckled to myself while I rummaged through my pocket, trying to find my phone. When I finally found it, I flipped it open, and pressed talk.
"Hey!" I exclaimed.
"Don't even think about going riding without me!"
"Why not?" I teased.
"Because that's so not fair, and you know it! I don't care if it's your..."
"Settle down Meg, I'm not leaving without you." I said cutting her off before she could get pissed off more at me.
I heard her take a couple of deep breaths before she started talking again.
"Okay, I just wanted to tell you to come over to my place around seven. Dad wants to have a dinner sonce you've been such a help around the ranch."
"Okay, I'll be there." I said trying to sound convincing.
"Yeah Meg?" I asked, my heart beginning to race, what did she want to say?
"Never mind. I'll see ya tonight."
And with that, the line went dead. I can't help but hope that she feels the same way. I quickly gathered my stuf from my truck, and headed inside. I still had two and a half hours before I had to be at Meghan's house, and I needed to prepare myself for the biggest leap of faith I had ever taken in my life.
