The Longest Car Ride ~ 4

"Sam how much longer is this going to take," CJ asked as she got out of the car and walked around to the front where Sam was standing.

He looked up at her. "Not too much longer. I know what the problem is, considering the fact that I have had the same thing happen to me when Josh was giving me a ride home once."

She laughed a little. "Good thing I never accept rides home from him. So what's wrong with it?"

He rolled his eyes slightly. "You know the term 'overheated?' Well, that is what is wrong. The engine is simply overheated. Can you do me a favor though?"

"What's that?"

"A favor is something nice that someone does for someone--"

"Sam!"

He sighed. "Don't you have a sense of humor?" He saw the red on her face. "Anyway, there's a thing of fluid in the trunk. Will you get it for me please?"

"Yeah, okay." She walked around to the driver's side, pushed the button to open the trunk, and got what Sam needed out of it. "Here." She handed it to him.

"Thanks. I should be done here in a minute."

She nodded and got back into the car.

"Well?" Toby asked when she got back in. "Is he just standing there looking stupid?"

"Toby! That is such a mean thing to say!" CJ said. "He's fixing it, no thanks to you."

"What, you're blaming me for this?"

She shook her head. "No, I'm blaming you." She pointed to Josh.

"Me? Why me?" Josh asked, sitting upright.

"You insisted on having the radio and air on for such a long time. One shouldn't do that."

He faced the front and crossed his arms, pouting.

A few minutes later, Sam closed the hood and got back into the car. He looked over at CJ and then at Josh. He then looked at Toby. "What did I miss?"

"CJ blaming Josh for what happened." Toby said flatly.

"It wasn't anyone's fault. I was probably just driving for a little too long. I told you we should have stopped for dinner at that diner back there."

"Well, how about we find the next one and go there," Josh asked.

"The next place to eat, sleep, or anything is not for another twenty-five miles." Sam looked over at the others.

"You have got to be kidding me. Are you kidding?" CJ asked.

"Nope."

"And you know this how," Toby asked.

Sam shook his head. "Look at the street sign, Toby."

"Oh...right." He sat back in his seat. "Can we just get going now? We've been sitting here for what seems like an hour and a half."

"It has been an hour and a half," Josh said.

"Shut up."

CJ hit Toby's shoulder. "Don't tell anyone to shut up. You do that enough at the White House."

"Sam. Drive. Now." Toby said, his voice becoming louder.

"Are you guys going to be nice to each other now?" He asked.

"Yes," they said collectively.

"Okay then." He started the car and started driving again.

Forty minutes later, they were still driving.

"Okay, Sam?"

"Yes, Josh?"

"Is it at all possible for you to pull over for a minute?"

"Oh come on," CJ said. "Can't we at least get to a place where we can eat or something?"

Josh looked at CJ and then at Sam. "Well, I'm all for that, if I wasn't about to throw up."

Sam didn't say anything. He simply pulled over to the side of the road. "Out."

Josh got out rather quickly.

"How long is this going to--" CJ started to say.

"Five or then minutes," Sam said.

"I know I'm going to regret this, but how did you know that?" Toby asked.

"Josh and I were driving from New York to New Hampshire and he got a case of car sickness. Five times."

"I did not need to know that," CJ said, partially covering her mouth.

"You're not going to puke too, are you," Toby asked.

"No, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not."

Josh got back into the car a few minutes later.

"Feeling better," Sam asked.

"Yeah. Can we just go now?"

Sam nodded and started driving again. He glanced back at Toby and CJ, who were asleep, and then looked at Josh who was also asleep. "Finally," he muttered to himself. He drove in silence through the rest of the night.
