Peyton + Jacob Chapter 6

Hello World!  Next chapter and go...
~Kerin


              After Jacob left, I sat quietly by myself at the table waiting for him to return, but he never did, so after a while, I decided to mingle with some of the other guests that I knew. Most of them said they were happy Jacob and I could make it, and how glad they were to see us. Some would ask if we were finally dating, and I didn’t know what to say, so I just laughed and changed the subject. When I was talking to Mrs. Hutchinson, one of Jacob’s old neighbors, I heard a loud crash. I turned in the direction of the noise, and found Jacob with broken glass at his feet. I immediately ran over to him, and I noticed Joshua coming over to him as well.
“I think we better get him out of here,” Joshua said when we both reached Jacob.
“I think you’re right,” I agreed.
“No no I’m fine,” Jacob slurred. He tried to walk away but only ended up stumbling in Joshua’s arms.
“C’mon Jacob I’ll take you home,” Joshua said pulling Jacob away.
“No, I’ll drive him home. We came in his car anyway,” I said following Joshua.
“Okay, well I’ll carry him to his car,” Joshua said.
            Joshua carried Jacob to his car, and helped me get him settled in the car, while Jacob was babbling on. Once in the car, Jacob had a new task. He kept trying to touch me and kiss me the entire ride home. When we finally arrived at our apartment, I had no trouble getting him out of the car because he was still trying to grab me, but once we were inside, I had had enough of his game.
“Jacob stop!” I yelled pushing him off of me. He stumbled and fell on the couch.
“You’re drunk,” I said walking to the kitchen, “I’m going to get you some water.”
I went into the kitchen to get Jacob a cup of water. I could hear commotion going on in the living room. My guess was that he fell off the couch. I also took the time to fix me a cup of water, and relax my thoughts for a bit. So much had happened, and I wanted to talk to Jacob about it, but unfortunately he was incapacitated. When I got back in the living room, Jacob had stripped out of all his clothes, and was passed out on the couch. I debated rather or not I should move him, but I decided not to, but to just cover him up instead. When I went to cover him up, I realized he wasn’t sleeping, because there were tears streaming down his eyes.
“Jacob are you okay?” I asked sitting down next to him on the couch.
“Yeah I’m fine,” he answered but he still hadn’t opened his eyes.
“Are you sure ‘cause you’re crying?”
“I’m not crying.”
“Fine there’s tears in your eyes.”
“These last two days have been really crazy, haven’t they?”
“I think that’s an understatement.” He laughed.
“I’m sorry.”
“For what?”
“For the position I’ve put you in.”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean with all my crap.” I realized he must have been talking about the conversation with Craig.
“Well since I am involved, you should tell me the whole story.”
“See that’s the thing I can’t.”
“Why not?’
“Because I promised!”
“Is that the arrangement?!”
“Yeah that’s the deal.”
“C’mon it’s not like he’ll know if you tell me.”
“But I know you Peyton, if I tell you, you will tell someone.”
“Who am I gonna tell?”
“You’re the do-gooder type, and you’re gonna wanna tell the cops or something.”
“What?! Why will I tell the cops?”
“Because when bad stuff happens, you tell the cops.”
“What happened?” He laughed.
“You think you’re slick. You think you can get me to talk because I’m a little drunk, but that’s not going to happen.”
“I just want to help you Jacob. What can I do to help you?”

“What can you do? I can think of a few things.” He smiled.
