Chapter 2 - Grayson
“I’m good how ‘bout you?”
“I’m good, the days are long and hard though.”
“I miss you, when are you coming home?”
“I don’t know when I’m coming home,” he said with a sigh.
“Okay,” I said sadly, “Well I wish we could talk longer but I have to go home, clean up, check on mom and go to school.”
“Where are you? Are you at the gym again? You know you work yourself too hard,” he said with a sigh.
“Yes, I'm at the gym. No, I don’t work myself too hard, but I gotta go, bye love you.”
“Okay bye, love you too sis,” he said right before I hung up and grabbed my gym bag.
I put everything in the bag and started to head out. On my way out I gave Jake the keys and said goodbye. He gave me a quick nod of his head in acknowledgment and continued talking on the phone.
The drive home was quick, I pulled up, hopped out and headed inside. Once I was inside, I checked the time to see that is was 6:03. I quickly peeked into my mom's room to see that she was still sleeping, before heading to my own room.
I grabbed a pair of black ripped jeans, a crop top and a matching pair of black undergarments. I throw my gym bag in the washer along with some other dirty clothes before heading to the bathroom to take a shower. Yes I have my own bathroom and I'm not going to lie, we are pretty fortunate and have a good amount of money, so keep that in mind. (Oh and we have four cars: tesla, my moms, a white jeep, mine, a Lamborghini but that’s my brothers so I'm not allowed to drive it, and a motorcycle which was my dads but I use it sometimes.)
Once I'm in the bathroom I strip off all my clothes and turn the water on hot. I hope in the shower and let me soak in the water, feeling my muscles relax, then I wash my hair. Once it did showering, I hop out realizing that I forgot a towel. Walk back into my room quickly shutting my door and look for a towel. Once I found my towel I glance out my window which I had forgotten to shut and saw Asher Wolfe.
He was staring right at me, I felt my cheeks heat up. Then I looked him up and down and realized that he had nothing but a towel on which made my cheeks heat up even more. Now before you think too far into things, I don't like Asher, he is an arrogant piece of shi- crap. Yes, he may have a body of a god but his ego is bigger than an elephant.
I quickly close my blinds and Finnish getting ready, then went to check on mom.
“Good morning mom, how are you feeling today?” I ask with concern, she isn’t looking too well today. Her hair, that is a little darker and shorter than mine was a mess. Her skin is paler than it used to be. Her green eyes that looked dull and tired, were red and puffy.
“I’m as well as I can be.” she said, “shouldn’t you be head-ing o-off to sch-” was as far as she got before completely breaking out into a coughing fit.
“I’m going to head off to school in a moment, but I want to wait for Amelia,” I said right before the doorbell rang.
“That should be here now.” and with that I ran to the door, opening it to let Amelia come in. I walk upstairs quickly stopping by my room to grab my book bag before heading back over to my mom's room.
“Bye mom, love you.” I said kissing her on the cheek before turning my attention to Amelia “ Call me if you need anything or just let me know how she's doing.”
Amelia nodded and opened her mouth as if she was about to say something but my mom cut in saying “don't worry about me I'll be fine.”
“I know,” I say with a sigh, and then with that, I leave.
