I can't believe it. I really can't. Just the other day I saw Suzie talking to Mickey in the kitchen. I tried not to think about it too much but then last night I came down to the kitchen to get a snack and after making myself a sandwich I decided to watch a little TV before going back to bed. When I walked into the media room the lights were off but I thought I heard something so I turned on the light and I saw Mickey and Suzie kissing on the couch. It was quite possibly the most disturbing thing that I have ever seen in my life. I'm just glad they had their clothes on.
Suzie screamed. Mickey told me to, "get out". Which is exactly what I did. I went straight back to my room. It shouldn't have bothered me. Suzie and I are just friends and I've got a girl friend. Am I bothered because she was making out with someone whom I consider to be an enemy or am I bothered because I want there to be more between us? I keep having thoughts about Suzie ever since the night that we planned spin the bottle. After all of the weeks that we have been stuck her in Wyoming for our protection (with me being unable to call my girlfriend Stacey) it's unlikely that I will still have a girlfriend when I get back to Columbia Middle School. Its going to be hard to explain to the teachers and students where I have been for the last month but it is going to be impossible to explain to Stacey why I didn't simply pick up a cell phone over the last month and call her. The truth is Mrs. Callahan has us on communication "lock-down" when we are out on the ranch but it doesn't really matter. I couldn't have told her where I was even if Mrs. Callahan let us use the phones. Protecting a secret identity really sucks.
From inside my room I heard loud footsteps down the hall. It knew it was Suzie and Mickey. My intuition was confirmed when I heard their voices. I couldn't make out everything they were saying but it was clear that they were arguing, They were speaking in a tone that could best be described as an angry whisper. They were trying not to wake the rest of the house up. Suzie was clearly done with the make-out session and Mickey wanted to continue. I was about ready to go back into the hallway to see if Suzie need any help and then I heard a door shut at the end of the hall and and a single set of footsteps returning towards my room.
There was no knocking involved but the door swung open and on the other side was an angry Mickey Jones.
"What the Hell is wrong with you Anderson?"
"I just went to watch TV" I responded.
"Whatever" he said "Just stay the Hell away from me."
That will be easy to do I thought. I hate Mickey.
So he shut the door and I went back to bed. The next day the skies were blue. Which means that they are no longer red. Which means that the battle with Xzbytb is over and our parents will becoming to pick us up soon. At least I hope that my parents will be picking me up soon.
