Standing Up To Life Book 2 Ch 40 Pt 5

Chapter 40 Part 5

I looked at Amy’s nails as we drove towards my house. She had to have some acrylic nails attached since she was constantly breaking hers. The nails were done in a light purple with some white designs on top of that. They had then attached some silver ‘jewel’ things on top of her like they had done the pearls with mine.

“So your dress is light purple?” I asked her.

“Yeah, lavender actually - it’s really pretty. I meant to show it to you earlier this week but completely forgot.”

“That’s okay - as long as you let me see it when we get to our hotel tomorrow!” I told her with a smile.

“Okay,” she said. The two of us were back to normal by the time that they dropped me off at my house.

My parents were both home at this point and my Mom came out to talk to Amy’s Mom. “Tiffany I love your hair,” my Mom said as she saw it. She made me turn around so she could see it from the front and back. “It’s really cute Tiffany,” she told me.

“Thanks Mommy,” I told her. She admired my nails, Amy’s hair, and her Amy’s nails, for a couple of minutes before she and Amy’s Mom started talking about their plans for meeting at the airport tomorrow. They didn’t talk too long before Mom and I went inside.

Dad was sitting at the computer in the dining room, he turned around as I came in. “Wow, your hair is really pretty Tiffany,” he told me.

“Thanks, look at my nails!” I told him as I ran over so he could get a good look. Mom hadn’t looked at them yet for some reason. They both admired them as I put them out in front of them.

“They’ll go really well with your dress,” Mom told me.

“I know, I can’t wait!” I told them. I was glad that nothing was said about earlier on in the day. Instead we just finished working on packing everything to go on our short trip. Our flight was leaving at 7am so Mom pushed me to get stuff packed as quickly as we could so that I could get to bed early. Shortly after 8pm the phone rang though.

“Tiffany, it’s for you!” Dad called from the other room.

I asked him, “Who is it?” as I walked over to take the phone from him.

“I don’t know, some boy?” he said.

I just stuck my tongue out at him, he was not the most useful person sometimes, and said “Hello?” into the phone.

“Hey Tiffany, this Kyle, how are you doing?”

“I’m doing okay. How are you?” I asked him back.

“Okay I guess. I know you’re getting ready for you trip tomorrow, so I won’t talk long, but I just wanted to make sure everything was alright. You and Amy just disappeared after we saw you at lunch today. And I was kind of worried about you two.”
