I clamp my teeth together to keep from saying some stupid something.
No, I don’t want her going out like that. I don’t want her going out at all tonight. But certainly not dressed as if she’s looking to hookup.
Getting up, I turn away, laying my guitar in the case and speak over my shoulder. “Thought we had practice?”
“I’m about to text Sladen and Mark. I think they’ll be good with it. I mean we’ve moved practice around a couple of times when things come up with them, right?”
Her tone sounds different. A blatant, innocent pitch. Similar to the couple of times I told my mother Dusty and I had a test to study for, and then he and I cruised the mall parking area, whistling at every hot babe we saw.
“Did something come up?”
“Some guy asked Mindi out today, and she doesn’t want to meet him alone.”
“You and Mindi are meeting some guy who asked her out?”
“He’s bringing a friend.”
“You have a date?”
“Not a date. It’s not like that. She can’t go meet a stranger alone. And when she told him, he said I should come. That he has a friend.”
“That’s a date.”
“No. Technically, it’s not.” Her dark brows rise, and her head tips a bit. “Because… No one ever asked me out!”
I’m sensing a double meaning here. Because I’ve never asked her out. But the thought of some shithead’s eyes—and possibly hands—on Sash is making me crazy. “If you’re meeting some douche at Bill’s then it’s a date!”
“Oh. ’Kay! Okay, Trey. I’m meeting some douche. I have a date!”
“No. No, you don’t!” My feet have slowly eaten up the space between us, and now I’m in her space—in her face. “You’re not going on a date!”
“And who’s going to stop me? Last I checked, I don’t have a boyfriend.”
Again, I feel these are not idle words. That they are as much a test as they are a taunt. And all I can do is hold my ground with no good argument. “You’re not going.”
“Get outta the way! What’s your problem?”
When she tries to push past me, my hands automatically shoot up, gripping her upper arms to stay her. With a shriek of rage, she attempts to twist from my grasp.
And behind me, Sladen’s voice booms. “What the hell do you think you’re doing? Get your hands off her!”
