Riley grabbed his car keys from the kitchen table before his Mom stopped him. She had been home the entire day for once. “Where are you going?” She asked. He sighed quietly and scratched his head, looking at her. “I’m going over to Carter’s for a little bit, just to hang out.” He said as he took a few steps back. “Oh alright then.” He heard her say before he turned around and headed towards the door. He was glad that she didn’t ask to spend time together because he’d rather hang out at Carter’s today, he just wasn’t up for a mom and Riley day. He opened his car door and got in it, taking a deep breath. It’s not that he’s shy or anything, but he’s not so much of a ladies man. Talking to girls can be awkward for him sometimes, but they usually laugh at the things he says. He started his car and backed out of the driveway, making his way to Carter’s house. He lived in a small part of town, and Carter wasn’t too far so he had no problem getting there. He parked on the side of her house and climbed out, closing his car door behind him. There was no need to put his alarm on it though. He made his way toward her house, slowly walking up the steps. He took a deep breath and knocked on her door and took a step back.
Carter hadn’t done much for the past couple of days. The only things she had really done were hang out around her house, dance, and sleep. Simply, she hadn’t been productive at all. Bounding down the steps, she greeted her mom with a smile, telling both her parents that she was going to have a friend over. Well, not really a friend. But the two of them would probably be friends by the end of the night. Riley seemed nice enough and Carter was happy to get to know him. She’d always loved making new friends, and considering she wasn’t super close with anyone here besides Savy and Mason, it was time she did that. She wasn’t sure when the boy would arrive, so she went back into her room, making sure that there wasn’t too big of a mess for when he got there.
Hearing the slight knock on her door a few minutes later, the girl made her way back downstairs, calling over her shoulder, “I’ll get it!” Pushing her long hair out of her face, Carter plastered on a smile as she opened the door. “Hi,” she said, happily, stepping back to allow Riley to step into the house and closing the door behind him. “Welcome to my home,” she said with a slight laugh, gesturing for him to walk in with her.
