Chapter 12
Fuckin' Pussy

"Do we have to?"

"Yes, Jude," I said, turning onto the exit that'll lead to the airport.

"But, Bam, my sister's like a dog, she'll find her way home somehow!" he protested, feebly trying to convince me to turn back.

"Don't downgrade your sister to that, Jude," I snapped.

"Whatever," he snapped, "but she's a bitch."

"That's it!" I said, reaching for the blunt that was in the cup holder and throwing it out the window.

"A BITCH IS A FEMALE DOG, BAM!" he yelled at me. "And that was ten bucks worth of weed you just chucked out the window!"

"Tyrone's prices going up, huh?" I asked, trying to diffuse the problem I'd created.

"Yeah, and you're gonna have to pay double what that fattie cost," he grumbled, crossing his arms over his chest and pursing his lips like he used to do when he was six.

With a sigh I took a right turn and semi-watched Jude's eyes zero-in on the airport on the horizon.

"Please, Bam, don't take me there," he started to beg.

"Jude, stop," I said.

"Bam, you don't understand, please," he whined.

I shook my head and drove on. "If you don't turn around right now, I'm jumping out," he threatened.

I locked the doors.

"Jude, stop, you're over reacting," I murmured softly as I pulled into the airport parking lot and cut the engine.

Jude sat there for a moment looking numb before his body seemed to crumble in on itself and he rested his elbows on his knees, face buried in his hands in defeat.

"Jude, why don't you want to go in there? All you have to do is walk in there, greet your sister and her...er, friend, then grab their luggage and we can all go," I said, rubbing his back soothingly as he dragged in a deep breath.

"Bam."

"Yes?"

"Do you want me to honestly answer your question even if it ultimately screws with my damn ego?" he whispered, his voice sounding tired, as if he was older than his seventeen—soon to be eighteen—years.

I didn't say anything, waiting for him to make the decision.

And, dragging out a long, deep sigh, he said, "I'm scared shitless, Bam. I'mma fuckin' pussy. What if I don't like the new person she is? What if she doesn't like me?"

"She's your sister, Jude, she'll love you either way, just like you have to do with her," I whispered before getting out of the car and walking to his side.

"C'mon," I said, opening the door and grabbing his arm, pulling him out so he stood before me, slightly slumped. "Stand tall, boy," I commanded, attempting to straighten his shoulders.

With a sigh, I looked up at him and stood on my tip-toes, gently kissing him on the lips as I whispered, "You're not a pussy, Jude, you're my Jude-ie and I love you. Now let's go, I'm right beside you."

I laced my fingers with his, locked my car, and we went to go meet his sister.
