There Ain't A Thing That You Can Do That's Gonna Ruin My Night
After school on Thursday I went shopping with Paris. I was still getting used to paying in dollars. I had brought a top for tonight and new black denim skirt to go with it. The top was all cut out at the sides and had the Sex Pistols on the front. Very Punk.
My phone started ringing and I looked down. Vic was calling me. “My dad.” I explained to Paris.
“You call your dad Vic?”
“I told you I don’t know him that well yet.”
“I guess.” she shrugged.
“Hello?” I asked into the phone.
“Effy, where are you?” Vic asked urgently.
“I went shopping with a friend.”
“You didn’t bother calling me?’
“I didn’t think you’d care.” I muttered.
“Why wouldn’t I care?” he sighed. “I’m trying to do this right. Of course I care.”
“Mum never.” I said quietly.
“Just come home soon."
“Are you mad?” I asked.
“. . . No.” he eventually said.
“Are you sure?”
“I’m sure.” Vic added.
“I’ll see you soon.” I told him.
“Bye.” Vic finished before he hung up. I saw Paris looking at me and I rolled my eyes.
“Just him freaking out.” I laughed.
“Not calling him to let him know where I was.”
“You didn’t call? My parents would be freaking.” Paris told me.
“Back home I used to stay out until dinner then go straight back out.”
“Did your mom let you?”
“No,” I laughed. “I snuck out.”
“Will your dad let you out tonight?”
“I don’t know.” I shrugged.
We started walking out of the mall and to the buses. When one came we got on and sat near the back. I rested my head against the window as Paris told me where we’d be meeting tonight. She agreed to meet me at the bottom of my street. I hopped off of the bus and started walking back to my house.
I reached it and used my key to open the door. I threw my bag down by the stairs and walked through into the kitchen. I saw a plate of food in the microwave and heated it up. Then I went into the living room where everyone was.
“Hi.” I smiled. I sat down in between Vic and Mike and started to eat. I looked up and saw someone I didn’t know.
“This is Casey. My drum tech.” Mike explained.
“Oh hey.” I smiled.
“Nice to actually meet you. Mike’s been talking about you non stop." Casey explained.
“Really?” I asked.
“Sort of,” Mike shrugged. “I think I just see some of myself in you.”
“Hope not. We’re not going through that again.” Vic laughed.
“You were just as bad.” Mike retorted, causing Jaime and Tony to laugh.
“Um . . . Vic?” I asked.
“Can I go out tonight with some friends?”
“On a school night. No.” he laughed.
“Because I’m not having you out all night.”
“I said no Effy.” he told me finally.
“Fine.” I huffed. I finished my food and stood up. I went to walk away when I heard Vic say my name. I turned around to look at him.
“Don’t hate me, please.” he said.
“Whatever,” I muttered.
I took my plate into the kitchen and went up stairs. I got into my room and looked at the time. It was nearing nine. I got changed into my new clothes and started to do my make up and hair. When I was done I put my hair back and put a dressing gown on. I went into Vic’s room and threw a bin bag with my shoes in down on top of the trash can. I went downstairs and into the living room. “I’m going to bed.” I told everyone.
“Okay.” Vic nodded.
“Sorry for earlier.” I muttered.
“It’s okay. Goodnight.” Vic told me.
I looked at Mike briefly and walked out. I stepped quietly to the front door and opened it. I wedged it open with some wood and found the bag. I took off my dressing gown and took my hair out. I put on a pair of converse and stuffed everything in the bag. I started walking down the drive and hurried down the street. I met Paris with the boys and grinned.
“I thought we were meeting you.” I said.
“Change of plan.” Matt smiled and took a drag of his cigarette. I smirked and took it from his lips. I took a long drag and gave it back to him.
“I’ve got something stronger.” Josh said and showed us weed, already rolled up. I put my hand out and he gave me a joint.
“This must have cost you.” I said lightly.
“I know a guy,” he laughed. Matt lit it for me and I look a drag. I felt it rush threw me and my head become dizzy and light. I smiled in satisfaction and felt Matt wrap his arm around me.
