“Yes, ma… Don’t worry, I’ll keep the house under control… Okay, love you too… Alright, bye.” I hung up.
I looked at my brother, who already had his phone in his hand.
“Dante, what are you doing? Ma told us no parties!”
“I’m calling over some friends. Don’t worry about it.” Dante smirked.
“Dante, stop. Last time Ma took away my laptop and your PS4. I don’t want that to happen again.”
“Chill, chill,” Dante said. “We’re gonna play some games. Riley’s coming down, too.”
“Riley is?” Dante knew I had a huge crush on Riley. This was his setup.
“Well, okay, but they have to leave before 10.” I said.
“Sweet. They’re on the way. You call for some pizza, I’ll get the games out.”
I woke up to sun rays coming through the blinds.
“Dante! Dante, get up! We fell asleep and we still haven’t cleaned!” I panicked.
“Chill, chill,” Dante said, stretched out on the couch.
He jerked up when we heard a motor outside.
