I sat in the car, daydreaming about Tylene. We are headed to the next town. Chris was driving, Shannon Spruill and David Flair were in the back. I sat and looked out the window the whole time. I didn’t really want to ride with Chris, David, and Shannon. I wanted to be with Tylene and the MIA. No one knew that though, not even Tylene.
Chris pulled into a gas station, and looked over at me.
“Do you want anything?” he asked softly as I snapped of my daydream.
“No, I’m fine.” I told him as I continued to look out the window.
He gave me a concerned look as he got out of the car.
“Wait, dude, I’m coming too.” David said as he got out of the car and went in the Quickie Mart with Chris.
Shannon leaned forward and looked at me.
“What’s up?” she asked me.
I shook my head, still staring out the window, not looking at her.
“Nothing” I lied.
“No, you’re lying.” she said to me.
I turned my head and gave her a dirty look. I then turned back to the window, without saying a word to her.
“Come on, you can tell me.”
“Let it alone Shannon.”
She leaned back in her seat as the two men were getting back in the car.
“I know you didn’t want anything, but I got you a Pepsi One anyway.” Chris told me as he handed me the cold baverage in a can.
“Thanks.” I mumbled as I stared into space.
God, Chris is so nice to me, and all I can do is with I was with a woman. But not just any woman. It’s Tylene I want to be with, not him. So why can’t I bring myself to tell him? And why can't I bring myself to tell Tylene as well?
I close my eyes and drift off to sleep, knowing that it will be a while before we are in the next town.
