Chapter Three

"To the supermarket!" Cat shouted as we got out of school on Friday. The week had gone by really fast, getting our classes, and worrying over, whether or not we could handle the classes. Especially, Bella and Shane. I mean I was smart but they are geniuses! All honors classes, plus both of them fought for extra curricular classes, added on to the classes, they already had. Bella was taking two classes of art and computers, and science each. Cat didn’t. But she was more stressed out then the rest of us, which led me to think that she’d gone crazy.

"I think she’s finally gone round the bend," I muttered to Bella voicing my thoughts and smirking as she stifled her giggling.

"Not necessarily," she whispered back as we all got into the bug. She probably knew the inner workings of Cat’s head, she seemed to understand her random out bursts, and slightly too energetic, reactions. Which was funny cause I didn’t think anyone, even Bella would ever figure out Cat.

"Are we seriously going to the supermarket?" I asked as Shane pulled out of the lot, and into the road, only slightly jerky. He still wasn’t so smooth, with the driving, but Forks didn’t have laws, against driving with friends after getting your license, you just had to wait three months. And they walked everywhere during the summer, so he didn’t drive.

"Yes." Cat said her tone making it obvious that there was no arguing this matter. I wasn’t going to bother anyway.

"Okay then why are we going to the supermarket?" I asked.

"’Cause it’s the end of the first week of school." they all answered, no doubt having to explain this to somebody else at one point. Probably Shane’s Mom.

"Need a little more then that." I said getting annoyed.

"Shopping cart races." All three of them said at the same time. I just waited knowing they would explain eventually. " When we first met, our Dads got together cause they’re in a way single parents. We got bored and went outside. To make along story short, we ended up racing down the sidewalk in shopping carts the next year we did the same thing just with Shane with us." Bella explained.

"Okay? What does that have to do with….. Oh! No way!" I exclaimed, realizing what we were going to do.

"What?" Shane asked.

"I can barely ride a bike, not that I don’t appreciate the lessons. You expect me to stay upright in a shopping cart without seriously injuring myself?"

Cat turned around from the front seat, stared me straight in the eye and said, "Yes."

"Do I have a choice?" I asked.

"Probably not." Bella said. I groaned banging my head on the back of my seat. This was not going to end well I could just tell. "Don’t we have a picture of us when we were thirteen in shopping carts?" Bella asked after a minute.

"Yeah we both do." Cat said laughing. This was actually pretty funny, Cat and Bella both had a huge collection of photos of all four of us. It actually made sense considering Bella kept a camera in her bag wherever she went. But it got to the point where they weren’t sure which ones they had and which ones they didn’t and it was funny watching them dig around for a picture that they remember but don’t necessarily have.

Shane pulled into the parking lot of an apparently abandoned supper market. "Does no one go to the supermarket on Fridays?" I asked, a little depressed. I was hoping that someone would stop us…. But no there wasn’t anyone at all. I thought I even saw a tumble weed roll pass.

Bella and Shane were trying to get his radio loud enough so we could here it through this whole… for lack of a better word event. I seriously thought they were all insane. We were fifteen! Sixteen in Shane’s case, and even if we got past how kidish this all was, how in the hell were we going to stay upright!?!?

They got it loud enough eventually, and Bella and Cat went inside to get "surreptitiously" get two carts. I have no idea how Cat is going to be surreptitious, but I didn’t say anything maybe we’d get kicked out!

Shane and I were laying on the hood of the bug, listening to Street Light Manifesto, for five minutes before I started to wonder where the heck they were. Shane sat up slowly, and a second later I felt him tap me on the shoulder. I just looked up at him not wanting to sit up.

"Get up lazy ass! We’re screwed!" he said trying to be quiet but obviously panicked. I was momentarily filled with joy, they were probably getting yelled at by the managers! Well need to leave! Yes! But when I sat up and looked at the windows of the supermarket, my stomach dropped.

Cat, and Bella…. Were talking to two boys probably clerks considering their green aprons, and they were laughing. Normally I would have shrugged it off, but… they were supposed to be with us, and laughing with us. Okay I was jealous alright!

"What the hell are they talking to them for?" Shane asked me angrily, you could just tell he was freaking out, I mean he’d been after Cat for four years and now it looked like this guy was suddenly going to get her. At least that’s what he saw. In all honesty I don’t think Cat liked him much, her laugh was really fake but that didn’t mean that Shane saw that.

Bella however, seemed like she was really liking that tall brown hair dude. Which is killing me. "How am I supposed to know?" I asked him.

"I-I don’t know. What do we do?" He asked, he looked broken, which was probably how I looked.

"Well, I know what we could do, that Cat would appreciate…" I said, grinning after thinking about it for a while.

"Oh, I know that smile, the last time you decided to play a prank on Mike, you had that on, what are we gonna do?"
