They’d been on and off dating since they left for school, and neither really knew what they were. And seeing as it was summer, he hit her up since they were home, knowing that she couldn’t say no to him. They went to see the latest Avengers, even though she wasn’t into the whole superhero movie thing, as she likes to say. Just as long as she could spend time with him, she was fine.
After the movie had ended, they sat in the dimly lit parking lot talking about how things were going, and what plans were post graduation. Most of the people had left and the only cars still there were the employees who had to stay and clean, and the security guy who was just hanging out.
Bobby turned to Jess and out of the blue asked her if she wanted to.
“Are you serious?” she asked.
“Yeah,” he nodded.
He didn’t see anything wrong with it, they couldn’t go home, not with their moms and dads there. Sure they were “adults”, but not if that’s where things were headed, he figured why the hell not?
“Jess, c’mon. We’ve done this a million time before.”
“You really want to do it in your car?” she asked sarcastically.
They in fact had done this numerous times prior, but they were also in high school. Since going away to college and having rooms to do it in, it all just seemed a little juvenile to her. He looked in the backseat, and it was covered in empty water bottles, Bang Energy, and last weeks Taco Bell wrappers.
Without hesitation she said, “No. Absolutely not..”
“Jess, it’s not that bad. All we have to do just move it to the ground, it’ll be fine.” Bobby pleaded, “please. Just one more time. For me.”
“I said no, Bobby.”
Down, but not out, Bobby threw it in drive and went to drop her off.
It was a silent ride for the most part. Bobby could tell that she was contemplating the pros and cons of the whole thing. She wanted him to make things official for once, but knew that it would be tough since they were at different schools.
As he came to stop at a flashing red, she said “fuck it” and told him to take a right. With a smirk he turned on his blinker. He knew where she was taking him.
It was side street with very few street lights and a dark cul de sac. He parked the car out of the line of sight from the road. It was quiet, just how they remembered it. He turned the car off and they started to clear off the backseat.
“I swear to God Bobby if we get caught, I will murder you.”
As they crawled back and settled in. He looked down at her and said, “just like old times, huh?”
She laughed it off and replied, “Just kiss me.”
Just as things started progressing, bright lights began to flash and a siren went off.
It was the cops.
