She glances at her sister briefly before shrugging and finishing her laces. Pouring the dregs of her coffee down the sink she quickly rinses the cup before grabbing her keys from the counter. “Well, time to go then. How long are we going to be there this time?” She questioned, shutting the door behind Amelia and following her down the stairs.
As we walked into the elevator, I just realized, Leslie has my keys. We exited the elevator and I immediately stopped in front of her, causing her to stop abruptly. Putting on my aviators, I lifted my hand in front of her face and said, “Leslie…My keys.”
Sighing Leslie begins to search her bag for Amelia’s keys and eventually pulls them out by the novelty keychain. She casually chucks them at Amelia and resumes walking, extracting her favourite, fingerless gloves from the bag also as she walks. “So, is it in the usual place again?”
“Yes, ma’am.” I said in a mock Southern accent. We walked down a flight of stairs that led to the parking garage. When we located my big, black, outdated truck, we opened the doors and settled in. I started the engine making my old machine roar to life. Before Leslie could make a crack at my truck, I said, “DO. NOT. HATE. ON. THE. TRUCK.” I pointed at her, making the warning amplify through my facial expression.
She held her palms up in mock surrender, feigning complete innocence at her sisters expense “Wasn’t going to.” Immediately she begins to rifle through the C.D’s in the side pocket, glancing over to Amelia as she started the car. “What should we put on?”
As I started to drive us out of the parking garage, I contemplated which CD we should listen to. Then, it hit me. I raised my eyebrow at her and said, “Coldplay, dude.” I adjusted my mirrors and glanced at her. “Mylo Xyloto, please and thank you.”
Slightly surprised Leslie nodded her head in approval and quickly found the disc, putting it in the C.D player. “So how long am I going to have to endure this fair today before I can go back to bed?” She took an apple and shaking her hair out the way, took a bite.
