"You promise to cover
"I promise, I'm going
out with BJ tonight and you're going to go shopping for a while and then
meet up with us and go back with BJ to her hotel and crash there.
I don't want to know exactly what you're doing, but I want you
to remember that you can call me at anytime
tonight for me to pick you up and take you back here, ok?"
Sarah nodded as she searched
for her shoes at the bottom of the closet. "Yes, and thank you, Matt,
I owe you one."
Matt leaned on the wall
next to the closet as Sarah found her shoes and stood up. "You're
quite welcome and yes, you do owe me one, a great big one."
"Hey, wait a sec, who
was it that set you and BJ up?" Sarah asked, walking to her bed and
sitting down, trying to fasten the straps of the shoes.
"That would be my ever
so wonderful cousin Sarah, whom I barely knew existed until she came here,
but she's damn cool and even though she's only been here for about three
days, I already feel like I've known her forever,"
Sarah laughed and stood
up, walking to the mirror across the room and checking herself over once.
"You're way into flattery, aren't you?" She asked, brushing her hair
and pulling down the bottom of her shirt. She was
wearing a long skirt and a tank top with
a button sweater. She was in dark colors again, the skirt being black
and the tank top and sweater a dark blue. The pair looked surprisingly
"Indeed I am, how do you
think that BJ is going out with me tonight? I must've complimented
her a million times two days ago, she was practically red the entire time,"
Matt said, sitting on the edge of Sarah's bed. Sarah glanced at the
"Well, if you want to
flatter her even more, you have to make a good impression on her mother,
who I happen to know is back in Florida for a few days to see Nick and
is going to be at BJ's hotel tonight. We have to leave now if you
want to get there on time and I have to meet Brian in the lobby of the
hotel right before you go upstairs," Sarah said, grabbing her purse.
She made sure she had everything she would need, including a pair of shorts
and another shirt, just in case. She didn't really know what would
happen at Brian's that night, all she knew was that they could barely be
kept apart the night before when they went to dinner. The restaurant
was quiet and Brian was right, no one bothered them. In their booth,
they were left alone all night and if they weren't in a public place, God
only knows what would've happened.
Sarah and Matt hurried
downstairs and Vicki, along with Sarah's mother met them.
"Are you sure you want
to shop all alone? I'll go with you if you want, until Matt picks
you up," Sarah's mother volunteered for the hundredth time.
"No, Mom, I'm positive.
Besides, I need the time to myself, and then Matt will pick me up and BJ
and I will have a fine and dandy time together and I'll be home tomorrow,
ok?" Sarah said, grabbing her jacket out of the hall closet.
"Ok, but call if you need
anything," her mother said.
Sarah nodded and grabbed
Matt's arm. "I'll remember to, bye Ma, bye Vicki!" She called
as she dragged Matt out the door. She sat in his car and waited as
he drove to the hotel.
