*Still Jacob's POV*
Mom walked through the door, but there was still no sign of Mya.
"Hey honey, where's your sister?" Mom asked while setting her purse on the table. I had to quickly come up with a lie.
"Uh... I remember her saying something about staying after school." I said. I wasn't gonna rat my sister out. Mom nodded her head and then went upstairs. I took out out my phone and dialed Mya's number.
"Hello?" She picked up on the 3rd ring.
"Hey, you need to get home! If Mom finds out-" I began to say. Mya cutt me off.
"Yeah, yeah I'm coming." She said, and then hung up.
A few minutes later, Mya walked through the door.
"Hi honey, what were you doing at school?" Mom said while walking down the stairs. Mya looked at me and then back at Mom.
"You know... just retaking a few tests." She said while setting her bag down on the floor. Mom went into the kitchen.
"I owe you one!" Mya whispered. I smirked.
"I know." I said. Mom walked back into the living room.
"Hey, Mom, can you take me to the mall tomorrow with my friend?" Mya asked. She used those puppy dog eyes that everyone seem to fall for. You can't say no. "Sure, honey." Mom said. Now its my turn to get what I want even though I usually do "Hey, Mom, me and my friends were planning to go the mall, too." I said. "Why don't you just go with Michelle, then?" She said. "I'll just take both of you." I knew I could get her to take me, but Mya didn't seem to like the idea. "What? No! I asked first!" She complained. I didn't see what the big deal was. I wouldn't even talk to her while we were there! We would both go our separate ways. Mom seemed to agree with me. "Really, Mya, stop being so dramatic. Don't you miss spending time with your brother?" Mom said. When Mya didn't say anything, but roll her eyes, Mom continued. "Jacob's coming and that's final." -NEXT DAY- The whole car ride after picking up Trey, Craig, and Ray, Mya was silent. She's probably still ticked off that I had to come, but I didn't care. Mom stopped the car in front of a house. Most likey Mya's friend's house. I was right. "I'll go get her." That was the first thing she had said since this morning. She got out of the car. "Dang, what is taking Mya so long?" I asked. Did I mention I'm impatient? "Jacob, she just-" But I didn't hear Mom finish the rest of the sentence because I was already getting out of the car and heading towards the house. "Dang, Mya, why are you taking so-" But I never finished that sentence. The friend Mya invited was Michelle. She look shocked. I zoned out and didn't hear a word Mya said. I was too busy checking her out. Michelle is hot.... no scratch that, she's gorgeous. Wait, I don't actually like her, do I? I can't. Not after what happened with my ex... I finally figured out why she was just staring at me. She didn't want me to go, thinking I'll mess with her or something. I don't know why, but that stung. "I'll just go my separate ways with the guys once we get there. We won't bother you." I said and then walked away. I had to sit next to Michelle in the car ride. I tried my best to avoid eye contact, but I saw her looking at me a couple of times. I've never been so confused by a girl! Some days, its seems that she likes me, and other days it seems like she can't stand me! I've got to figure her out. But why do I even care so much?
