Mow

TJ wiped his brow. The sun was merciless today. If he hadn't promised his uncle he'd mow the lawn, he would've spent the day at the movie theater basking in air-conditioned comfort. But a promise was a promise. Besides, he was almost done. As he pushed the mower, he thought about the day he'd get his own place and have someone else mow the lawn. Hell, he'd hire someone to clean up after him so he wouldn't even have to make his bed. While thoughts of living the good life filled his brain, he failed to notice the sprinkler head.

TJ grinned when he saw the text from Shy. He'd been worried about his friend but knew he must be okay if he was texting. He opened his phone and replied.

Miss you too. Don't worry about talking. You okay?

After a few moments he received another message.

not rly. wish i was dead.

A chill went through TJ's body when he read it.

No you don't.

A few minutes passed, and just when TJ was ready to call Shy he received

come see me

TJ grabbed his keys.

On my way.

TJ finished laying the last tile in place and rocked back on his heels with a smile on his face. It looked great.

"You decide if you're coming by tonight?" his friend Jet asked him.

TJ nodded and got to his feet. "Yeah, I guess I will. Can't avoid her forever, right? Can I bring over anything?"

"A bag of ice."

"You got it."

"And maybe some chips and dip. And weed, if you've got it."

TJ looked at his friend. "Man, why don't we just have the party at my place?"

Jet laughed. "I was hoping you'd say that."

Shade

TJ loved the park, especially when he could lie down in the shade and catch a nap. A fly tickled his nose and he brushed it away.

"Damn it," he muttered when the fly landed on his cheek. He opened his eyes and saw his ex-girlfriend, a blade of grass in her hand.

"Hey, Teej."

"You were doing that?"

She nodded.

"What do you want?"

"I wanted to say hey."

"Fine. You did. Go."

"You still mad?"

"Bye."

"But--"

"Just leave," he snapped.

Nodding, she slowly got to her feet and walked away.

"Bitch," he muttered, closing his eyes again.

TJ looked through the stuff in the backseat. "Did you remember the tent?"

Jet looked put out. "What kind of question is that? I've been camping before. Why would I forget something as basic as the tent?"

"I'm just saying, I don't want to get out there and have to freeze my ass off all night because you forgot it."

"I didn't forget it."

"Then why don't I see it?"

"It's back there," Jet insisted.

"Okay, fine."

After a few moments of silence, Jet cursed and turned the car around.

"What is it?" TJ asked.

"I forgot the fucking tent."

Hammock

"Where's Uncle Jim?" TJ asked his aunt. "I want to run something by him."

"He's out back in the hammock, sweetie."

"'Kay, thanks," TJ said, heading into the backyard.

When he got back there, he saw that his uncle had fallen asleep with a beer in his hand and a car magazine resting on his chest. Chuckling, TJ carefully removed both items so neither of them would fall. His uncle worked hard all week, so getting to be home on the weekend to relax in the yard was the least he deserved. The question he had for him could wait.
