"You know it's winter right? And I'm sick, " I stated the obvious, just in case he hadn't noticed. "You're welcome by the way."

Jeremy scoffed and looked back at me. He was about six paces ahead of me even with his limp. "For what?" He questioned, slowing down so o could catch up, but speeding back up again once I was close enough. I sighed.

"Getting you to Macy's to get stitched up, taking you home, getting you that card." I threw in that last one with a smile. Jeremy looked back at me with a disbelieving look.

"You're welcome for saving you from that dog, " he snapped, still not saying thank you.

"Did I not thank you for that? Well, thank you. See, it's not that hard. It's not even a pride thing, it's just a hey-someone-did-something-nice-for-me thing, " I explained as we approached a building I couldn't see through the blizzard. Why did I agree to this again?

Because you didn't want to be late in front of the class.

Ah. Right.

I hobbled a little faster as we came to a stop in front of the building. Jeremy opened the door and I almost walked into it as it shut behind him. I growled quietly and opened it myself, my fingers almost sticking to the metal. I noticed that Jeremy was only in a sweater and he was hardly even shivering.

It must be a silent brooding thing.

Inside it smelled like warm soup and it was nice and toasty. I snuggled into my coat and followed Jeremy through the small shop. There was a dark skinned lady behind the till, smiling at us warmly. I returned her smile while I'm pretty sure Jeremy just continued to brood.

"I'll have a tomato soup." He then turned to me expectantly. I raised both my eyebrows in surprise and approached the till.

"Hi, can I please get a chicken noodle soup, please?" The old lady smiled at me and then punched in my order. Jeremy paid and I was even more surprised. I mean, it's reasonable

ng stitches, " he snapped, rolling off me. Oh, false alarm, my bad. Idiot.

"We have to get off the road before another car c-comes."I was starting to shiver from the cold. Jeremy nodded and I tried to get up, but my pain shot through my ankle.

"Jeremy, I think I twisted my ankle. I'm calling an ambulance for you though, " I stated, pulling out my phone.

"No!" He cried weakly, quickly losing blood.

"You idiot, I have to! Even f you're not my favourite person right now, " I said, typing in the numbers.

"Please, I-I'll try to be nicer. J-Just don't call an ambulance." I sighed. I didn't know why he didn't want me to call the police, but tried to stand up once more, not putting weight on my one ankle. We couldn't go to Macy's because she wasn't home and I didn't want to distract her, she had a Math final third period.

"Do you h-have stuff to fix this at your... place?" I inquired, my teeth chattering while I spoke.

"No, " he replied wearily.

I almost swore.

"Let's go, " I told him, trying to help him up as best I could.

"Where are we going?" He questioned, standing on one leg like me. I would've sued the driver or something, but they'd already taken off like the great people they were.

I sighed, "To my house."
