The Longest Car Ride ~ 6

~7:00 AM~

"Where are we," Toby asked groggily as he slowly woke up.

"Tennessee," Sam said as he looked back at Toby.

"We're only in Tennessee?!" Josh said, sitting up straight. "Geez, CJ, how slow are we going?"

She looked in the rear view mirror at Josh. "Shut up, Joshua, or else I'll have to use you as target practice."

"For what?"

"For trying to avoid running over a defenseless animal on the road," she said, narrowing her eyes at him.

Toby looked over Sam's shoulder and tried to see what speed they were driving at. "65 miles an hour? CJ, can't you drive any faster? I think a semi just passed us."

She gripped the wheel tighter. "Would you like to drive, Toby?"

"Sure."

"Too bad. You're being a jerk, so you don't get to. Unless you'd like to join Josh in helping me with my target practice."

Sam looked at the two in the back. Josh was looking out the window, his hand gripping the seat. Toby was trying to fall back asleep, yet kept looking up at CJ, just to make sure she was still driving.

"Nice going," Sam said to her.

"What do you mean?" She glanced over at him.

"You really freaked them out. I've never been able to do that before."

"Yeah well, being a woman does have its perks." She smiled.

"I guess." He looked out the window.

~9:00 AM~

"Where are we now," Toby asked, waking up from an hour long nap.

"Well, I decided to take a left, so now we're in Tulsa," CJ said, trying to hide her grin.

"WHAT?! CJ, how could you be so...so..."

"Two words, Tobus: Target. Practice."

He grumbled something inaudible.

"What was that? I don't think I heard you correctly."

"Nothing," he said quietly."

"He said, 'women,'" Josh supplied.

"Tattle tale," Toby said to Josh.

Josh looked at Toby. "Me? What about you? You're the one who said that I threw that map out the window."

"Well that's because you did," Toby said flatly.

"You didn't have to tell on me," Josh said, pouting.

"Will the two of you stop it already," Sam interjected. "You're bugging the hell out of me!"

"Oh shut up you boy scout," Josh said.

"Excuse me? What was that, Josh?" Sam asked, looking pointedly at him.

"Face it, Sam, you're a mama's boy," Toby said, looking up at Sam.

Sam turned to face the front again. "At least I'm not calling people names," he mumbled.

"All right, that's it!" CJ yelled. She pulled the car to the side of the road, put it in park, and turned it off. She then turned to Toby. "You. Stop telling on people and calling people names." She then turned to Josh. "You. Quit whining about every single thing that happens!" She turned to Sam. "And you...You just stop taking that bull from them and tell me where I'm going." She looked at the three, who were now paying close attention to what she was saying. "If you can't behave like men, I'm going to have to call the the President and have him give you a lecture in acting like adults, and trust me. You do *not* want that lecture!"

Neither of the three said anything. "Sorry," they said after a few moments of not saying anything.

"That's better." She took a deep breath and turned the key to start the car. Nothing happened. She tried again...And again...And again. Nothing happened. "Damn."

"Want me to see what's wrong," Toby asked in a small voice, in fear that CJ would yell at him again.

"No, I'll see what's wrong," she said as she unbuckled her seatbelt.

"But you're a woman," Josh said without thinking.

"Would you like that mother-board shoved up your ass now," she asked in a flat, yet scary sounding voice.

He didn't say anything. He simply shook his head.

"That's what I thought." She got out and opened the hood, fiddled around with something and came back five minutes later. She got in the car and turned the key. It started right away. She gave the three men around her a smug smile and walked out to close the hood and got back in the car. "Okay, we can go now." She put her seatbelt on and started driving again, leaving the men speechless.
