NaNoWriMo Novel: Ch.3 Leaving

All I can do is nod once and then let him guide me by my hand back to class. The teacher gave us a stern look, but because my eyes were still all blotchy, she let us slide. I can’t focus on anything the rest of the hour other then what I was about to do next hour, and with who.

When the bell rings, Chris came up behind me and whispers in my ear, “I’m in the back lot. See you there in 10.â€?

Claire shoots me a look, but I pretend not to notice, instead going straight to my locker and putting my books away. Thankfully Amber was there.

“Sis, I found a ride home. So I’ll just see you there.â€? I say, keeping it brief so she can’t take in my ruined make-up. I turn on my heel and walk towards the back of the school. My heart is beating a thousand miles a minute as I spot Chris’ car and see him leaning against the passenger side.

“You made it.â€? He says, opening my door.

When he hops in on his side I answer, “I didn’t know I had a choice.â€?
