After going to the toilet, I poked my head around the door. Everyone was sitting down happily, smiling but slightly cautious about Ethan. I stared at him and he gave me and evil glare, then attempting to not be noticed, I ran/tip-toed to the door.
A warm hand grabbed my wrist gently as I stood outside. I turned to see Jerry frowning down at me. "Where are you going?" he asked.
"Oh, I just...it's already 9:00pm and it takes an a while to get home. My parents will be mad if I get there late." I mumbled, looking down at my feet.
"But...why didn't you say goodbye? I thought I was driving you home?" he asked.
"Well, I don't want you taking the same bus if Ethan's on it," he whispered, nodding his head inside. "Tell me the truth. Why are you going?" he asked, seriously.
"I-I can't stay." I whispered.
"Well...let me leave with you now. I'll just grab my jacket." He smiled and ran inside, I looked back at him as he took his jacket and explained briefly to Nick,Jade and Julianna, then charged back towards me, yanking on his jacket. "Come on,"
He placed his hand on my back and guided me to his car, opening the door for me and closing it behind me. I smiled at his manners and watched him get into the car. He started it up and turned the heat on, then pulled out and began to drive down the road.
"So...what did Ethan say to you?" he asked, cautiously.
