Just then Amy and Jesse walked in looking very annoyed.
"What?" I said as soon as I saw them.
"Well Micky and Davy told us not to go anywhere that they would come and get us when you guys were through!" Jesse said.
"Well we weren't through" I said smiling sweetly.
"That's okay" Amy said "We want to go look at this store so we will come back when we are through looking."
So they walked out of the door.
"Oops" Micky said when they had left the building.
We all started laughing.
"You know guys this was real fun" I said as I grabbed the check and paid the waitress.
"Where do you get all of this money and why do you always pay?" Peter said as he began to look puzzled.
"I just have it. Hey I like doing stuff for my friends especially when I don't need the money" I said.
We all walked out of the front door and Micky started to walk towards this building. We all followed him.
"Um, where are we going?" Davy said as he grabbed my hand. I linked my arm with him. I then put my arm around Mike's arm. They both looked at me and smiled. Peter turned around and looked sad.
"Oh Peter" I said " I will hold your hand on the way back."
He turned around. We still had no idea where Micky was going. He stopped in front of an old ugly building.
"What is this place?" Mike and I said at the same time.
"Just follow me," Micky said.
He was beginning to scare me. I tightened up my arms and made Davy and Mike come closer. We walked up a couple of flights of rickety old stairs. There was graffiti all over the walls. Peter stopped and got closer to Mike, Davy and I. Micky pushed open an orange door, which seemed to be made out of plywood. We followed him and stopped short when we saw what was in here. There was a bunch of groovy clothes and jewelry in there. We saw Amy and Jesse behind a rack of shirts. Mike and Davy let go of my arms so I grabbed Peter's hand and we walked around trying to find some good clothes. We found this stack of pants. There were a whole bunch of different colored pants. There were some cute tight tan pants. They were the right size and length. Mike, Davy, Peter, Micky and I all bought a pair. Amy and Jesse thought they were ugly. I found these boots in which the sole was like 4 inches tall but I didn't get them because I would be almost as tall as Mike then. I did get these pair of sandals, which were black and had a big thick sole. Amy bought a shirt with a picture of the sun on it, and Jesse bought a short purple skirt.
"Hey guys let's go this place gives me the creeps" I said as I paid for my stuff and grabbed my bag.
We all walked downstairs. I made Mike stop and then I jumped on his back. Micky took my bag and walked behind us. I think he was getting jealous. I didn't want to say anything now. We were about half way to the car when Peter pulled me off of Mike's back and held me like a baby. That didn't make Micky very happy either.
"Somebody carry me," Amy said whining like a baby.
So Davy picked her up. Which was funny 'cause Amy was taller then Davy. She got mad so he put her down and she picked him up. I thought I was going to die laughing. We got to the car and Peter threw me in the back. I was still giggling when we got home. I put my foot out of the car and Micky swept me up and ran inside with me. He set me down on the kitchen table. I jumped up and ran into my room. Micky ran after me. I put my new things away. He started to look at the things on my dresser. He picked up his love beads and looked at them.
"What?" I said because it looked like something was wrong.
"Oh nothing I was just thinking," he said as he put the beads back on my dresser.
"About what?' I said as I walked up next to him.
"Just about us" he said as he turned and looked at me.
"In a good or bad way?' I asked quietly.
"I'm not sure," he said after a long pause.
"Please talk to me" I said as I could feel my eyes start to water.
I just knew he was going to say that he didn't like me anymore or something bad like that.
"You were being extra friendly with Mike, Peter and Davy today it made me mad" he finally answered.
"Does that mean you were jealous?" I said wiping a tear from my cheek.
"I guess so. I just wanted to hold you. I wanted to hug you and kiss you," he said as he turned around and looked at me.
"Oh..." I said.
I could feel a sob coming on.
"You are making me cry. You said you never wanted to make me cry," I said as he wiped a tear off of my face.
"Am I not worth tears?" he said.
"Oh yes, I just don't want them to be bad tears, just happy tears. These are happy tears," I said as I pulled the love beads over my head.
