“Yeah, I saw it there,” I admitted.
“I’d invite you to play it but one, it’d be rude to just
up and leave the party and two, my mother and
father wouldn’t approve of me being alone in my
room with a guy,” she shrugged and I held back a
smirk at the latter part of the sentence. Of course
she’d think like that.
I laughed and she smiled before a look of curiosity
made its way onto her pretty face. “Did you meet
my brother yet?”
I nodded my head. “Yeah, when I came inside; your
mother was yelling at him to come inside and get
ready,” I shrugged and she nodded.
“What about Mere?” she asked.
I pursed my lips. “Not exactly.”
She beckoned me towards the kitchen. We entered
to see the two of them eating cookies and drinking
“Jer, Mere,” she smiled.
“Jonah, Vanna,” Jeremiah spoke and he and his sister
seemed to have a telepathic debate. Mere was staring
dreamily at Jeremiah and I raised an eyebrow.
“Oh, yeah, hey Jonah,” she snapped back to reality.
She was busy watching Jeremiah bend over to refill
his milk. I just watched in amusement as Savannah
covered her mouth with her hand in disgust.
“Vanna? Can I talk to you for a minute out there?”
“I don’t think that’s the best idea, Mere,” Savannah
spoke with a warning tone.
“Too bad, Vanna,” she yanked her out of the kitchen
and the two disappeared. Jeremiah turned around
from the fridge and frowned.
“Where’d they go?” he asked and I shrugged.
“To talk,” I muttered as I sat down on a stool. It even
A few moments later, I was called out of the kitchen,
towards the hallway near the backyard.
“Jonah, I need your help,” Savannah whispered and I
leaned forward slightly. She squealed quietly before
taking a step back and raising her voice. “As you
know, Mere likes Jer but she doesn’t know if he likes
her so she’s making me find out. Can you help me?”
I thought for a moment, even though the answer
was quiet clear. “Yeah, I will.”
“Okay, you’re going to tell Jer that my mom needs
him in the yard in a few minutes, if he asks, just say
that she told you on your way back to the kitchen
and that’s all you know,” she informed me and I
I entered the kitchen with a smile on my face.
Jeremiah gave me a confused look. “Jeremiah, your
mom wants you in the yard.”
“Call me Jer, I only hear Jeremiah when I’m in
trouble,” he muttered. “Wait? What?”
“Your mom needs you in the yard,” I replied after I
He stood up and left his plate there. I watched as
Mere slipped around the corner after he’d exited the
house. She took his spot and continued eating his
cookies, giggling as if she was doing something
wrong. I just shook my head.
“So, you and Vanna, huh?” she asked me and I just
stared at her. She was Savannah’s best friend; of
course she’d say something if I admitted anything!
“Eh, you’re not going to talk, huh?”
I was still quiet when she pushed the plate away
from her and motioned for me to sit down. I took a
seat across from her and she cracked her knuckles
and placed her hands flat on the table.
“Listen here, Jonah, I know you may not be
interested in dating Vanna now but when you are,
remember, if you hurt her- I swear to God, I’ll rip
your fingers off and eat them like fish sticks. I will
take you onto a boat where I will rip your arms off
and use them as oars. I will toss you overboard with
a cement block tied to your ankle and you will
drown. I will toss your arms into the water, too,
hopefully attracting sharks. I will then row back
home with my extra pair of oars and tell everyone
on land that you decided to swim to Italy,” she
threatened me; all the while I had my eyes opened
