not yet found
Rust Rust, the reddest ash that cumbles underneath my feet as I walk in to the garage. Bicycle chains hangs everywhere in need of oiling. They differntly have been sitting of in the sun to long. I need a scrediver, where is it? Mark said it was in the drawer but i can't find it anywhere. This is the second time I've been out in this garage and I am no closer to finding that screwdiver than the first time I came in. .... to be continue
you know what, i was rushing when i wrote this in class, so it has a few spelling errors and maybe some grammar mistakes.
Well i guess it will have to be found some other time, but for now I have better things to do than look for a screwdriver that apparently does not want to be found.
"hey sid, what are you doing." said Sam
"Nothing just wasting the last fews days away in this garage,"I replied.
" Well if you don't mind I was wondering if you wanted to go to a party at Tom's house. I heard it was going to be really good, lots of people from school or going."
" Well than count me in, when does it start." I said trying to think of what clothes I should dress myself in.
She told me it would start at 8pm but that only left me with about an hour to get ready. Of course I would need alittle extra time to make sure I am as blended in with the crowd as I can be.
" I'll be back to pick you up later okay, and this time make sure you have everything ready," she yells back at me while heading to the car.
She just got her license and her mom brought her a brand new BMW.
It was an amazing car and I loved riding in it. The interior was made of smooth black leather and it rode as smooth as a snowboard on snow. It's almost as if i gliding on ice. Shoot, I have to get ready, Sam will be on her way in 40 min and I'm still in the garage wearing worn out boots and oily overalls. Its amazing how much time can pass when you're day dreaming about a car.
"Hey sid, did you find that screwdriver yet," rang Mark from in the house.
"No, not yet," I said walking through the door.
"Hey, can you tell dad I'm going to a party with Sam"
"Sure, whatever just as long as you make it back by curfew, you know how he is when your late,"
" ya, ya, just tell him okay," I replied while running up the stairs.
Eventually we arrive at the party. Already I'm feeling uncomfortable. I blow it away with a quick sift of my hand, thinking that the nervousness could only be caused from my lack of experience at a party. Sam introduces me to a group of people standing near the snack table. They all look familiar, but neither of them am I aquainted with. We talk for a few minutes, the consversation to me seems like a bore. Sam on the other hand seem very captured by the subject and had alot to say about who should be this year's homecoming queen. Of course since there were plenty of people at the party, I figure why waste my time being bored to death when there's bound to be someone else here who shares the same interest as me. I made my way through the dimmly lit room to a girl with bright red hair sitting at the table. As I gotten near I immediately recognized who it was.
"Charlotte," I said apparently sounding less surprised than I actually was.
" Hey Sidney, It's been awhile since I've seen you.How have you been," she raises up given me a friendly greeting.
"Yes fine, I half expect you to be here."
" Well, I half expected to be here myself, but here I am."
" Yes, I can see that, and you look positively stunning. I never seen you look that way before. I have to say it's definitely a first."
She blushes at my comment and returns it by admiring my blue blouse. I barely noticed what I was wearing let along the color of my blouse was blue. Being in such a rush I half examined what I grab to put on. It was a risk, but a good risk at that, I thought to myself examining what I had on. We continue to talk about her being back at Harper and than we drift to talk about her life at the New England Institute of Art in Boston.

"So how is college life going for you."
"Fine actually, I'm taking a photograpy course there. If you ever decide to visit I could show you their darkroom. It definitely a sight to see."
" Well I should consider that when I'm looking for a good college to go to."
I then look at my cell phone for the time. It was 11:30 and my curfew was 12. I said my goodbyes to Charlotte and went to find Sam. She no longer was at the snack table so I decided maybe she could be in the kitchen getting refreshments. Not there either. Eventually I found her in the back yard by the pool. There was a crowd of guys by her. She wisper to one of them that made him start laughing very loudly.
" Oh there you are Sid, isn't this party great, I never want to leave," she said giggling to another one of the guys. I pull her aside and whisper that I needed to go.
" Oh Sid now, the party hasn't ended yet. Besides there's plenty of cute guys out here I think you might be interested in," she saids in the conning little voice of hers as if nothing is wrong with me staying a little longer. I gave her my serious look of meaning what I say when I need to go home. I was determined not to let her con me into staying.
"Come on don't give me that look. You deserve this night out to have fun. Loosen up a bit I'm sure your dad will understand, after all he was a teen once himself. I'm sure he wouldn't want his litte girl bored to death sitting at home. He would want his little girl out having the time of her life with her dearest friend."
As soon as she said this I knew it wasn't true, but I didn't want to be sitting at home on a Friday night bored out of my wit and talking to the T.V screen with a bag of popcorn in my hand. Besides I could always come up with an excuse of why I was late.
"Oh alright," I said giving a exasperated sigh." I'll stay a little longer."
"Okay than, now that thats settle, there's someone I want you to see." she says with her conning grin. Apparently she has won again, I'm so pathetic, I know I'm going to regrett this decision later. We go back over to the crowd of guys. I'm shaking and very nervous. I haven't talked to a guy in ages let along be in a crown full of them.
" hey guys, this is Sid a friend of mine"
Their eyes are all pointing in my direction to say something. Say Something Sid, I tell myself, but what should I say. My eyes zoom up and I am short of breath. In a blue jacket is a guy who I've never seen before, he must of just show up when me and Sid show up. He smiles at me.
To Be Continued......................................... .
As if reading my mind Sam introduces him to me.
" Sid this is Jake, Jake this is my friend Sid,"
I could feel myself starting to blush. "Run Sid Run move your feet," I said to myself. It was no use my feet were glued to the ground. He noticed me blush and gave another one of is calm, cool smiles. I couldn't help noticing his eyes were a dark shade of blue almost indigo. He had the perfect hair, it was black with a few strands dangling in front of his face. His skin was smooth and of a copper color." hey, hey," I could hear someone calling.
I blinked my eyes for a few seconds and I could see that it clearly was jake that was talking to me.
"Yes," I answered back.
" Are you okay?"
" Yes, I'm fine, why"
" It's just you had a strange worried look on your face," he said still smiling.
" It's nothing, I'm just tired I guess"
By this time the group had shorten and Sam was back inside apparently doing some kind of new dance on the dance floor. She looked really dunk to me. She must of had way too much punch. I definitely wasn't going to let her drive in that condition, but I had no money for a cab and no lincense either.
" Hey Jake," I said hardly believing what I was going to ask him to do.
" Yes," he turn and looked my way. I ask if he would mind taking me and my friend home. He agreed to do it, that was the easy part. The hard part was trying to get Sam out of the house. As soon as we got to the car door she puke all over my shoes. I tried not to mind it when we put her in the back seat, but I couldn't help feeling completely gross out by it.
To be continued...............................
As we rode in the car, I started to tense up. My mind was having second thoughts about getting into the car with a complete stranger, but it was too late to go back. I glance over at him driving to reassure myself that he didn't look like one of those guys who would take advantage of someone.
We drove in silence all the way to Sam's house. He help me carry her to her door step. I rang the door bell nervously, thinking of some excuse to tell her mother when she finds her daughter on the doorsteps completely drunk. I knew I was going to have to come up with something to tell my dad, but I didn't think I would have to cover for Sam. The door started to open and my heart begin to pound against my chest really hard until I could feel the beating inside my head as if it was not located near my rib cage.
" What in the world is going on here," said Sam's mother with a look of utter shock on her face."
" I can explain Mrs.Cott," I said hastily.We brought Sam into the house, and to my surprise Jake was started explaining everything . He twisted some of the story about how she got drunk. Instead he said it was food poisoning and told her how responsible of a friend I was to not let her drive on in such terrible condition. At the end of the story he made me seem like I was a hero and for a second there I almost believe it was true. Her mother believe every word of it and didn't think to ask us what we were doing out so late. She quickly started to tend to Sam, I gave her the car keys, and we were on our way out the door.
When we got into the car I thanked Jake for saving my butt. He said it was no problem, he had been in similar situations.
"Like what?" I asked. He didn't respond and I thought I might have said something wrong.
"Last year me and a couple of friends of mine where at a house party," he begin to my relief.
To be Continued............................
" There was a big crowd that came out that night, but then a few people broke into a fight and soon bottles and cans of beer were flying into the air. No one knew how to stop the fighting and it went on for a good hour or so. One of my friends got his head crack from one of the beer bottles and we had to rush him to the hospital. I stayed there all night with him."
" That's sad, but none of that stuff happened to night"
" I know but it proves that parties can get alittle hecked when there's no one around to controll it. Your lucky your friend was only drunk, the most she could suffer from is a hang over in the morning." He said this with a little bit of grief in his voice. I wanted to ask him what happened to his friend when he was at the hospital, but I decided better. He pulled in my garage and I started heading towards the house ready for whatever punishment I was going to get thrown at me. It was 2 in the morning way pass my curfew, but I didn't care. I started to think about what all Jake had said to me in the car which may me feel more grateful that my friend was okay than being worried about rather I would live to see another house party again.
