Can You Love Your Friends?

“Crap. I have to go. Someone noticed I’m missing.” Ashley was panicing.

“Okay, I’ll talk to you tomorrow, if you’re still alive…” Brett knew how strict Ashley’s parents were.

“Alright, bye, I… uhh, bye.” Ashley had almost said I love you. It was just habit.

“I love you too. You can love your friends silly!” Brett had caught it, and he kept sounding more gay by the minute…

“Haha, I’ll always love you Brett!” Ashley kissed him on the cheek and then ran to the backyard.

Luckily her parents hadn’t checked downstairs yet so the door was still unlocked. Ashley, even more careful then before, opened the door, slipped inside, closed the door and locked it. Then she took off her shoes, tip-toed to the rug by the front door and put them where she had left them the night before. Then she put her coat back in the closet and walked upstairs, all the while readying herself for the wrath that was her parents.
