The Longest Car Ride ~ 7

"Are we there yet," a tired Toby asked three hours later.

"For the six-hundredth time, Toby, no!" CJ said from the front. She had answered his question several times before.

He sighed and sat back and looked out the window. "Can you at least tell us what state we're in?"

"I think we're in Canada," CJ said, trying to hide a giggle.

"WHAT?!" Josh practically yelled.

Sam laughed. "She's joking. We're in Kentucky. Northern Kenutucky, if I'm not mistaken."

"Boy scout," Toby muttered.

Sam narrowed his eyes at Toby. "Will you kindly keep your mouth shut?"

"Why? I'm having so much fun making fun of you."

"Want me to pull over again?" CJ asked the three as she started to turn the wheel and pull the car over again.

"No!" The three men shouted.

"Fine. Then hush up." She drove normally again.

~Two Hours Later~

"Okay, I'm tired," CJ said. "Who wants to drive?"

"Me," Toby said.

"I will, it's my car," Sam said.

"I haven't gotten to drive yet," Josh whined.

CJ pulled over and looked at Sam. "Okay, your turn, again. It's your car, like you said."

"Thank you." He got out and switched places with CJ.

"Hey, wait a minute!" Josh protested.

Sam rolled his eyes. "What now?"

"Why can't I sit in front?"

"Because you whine too much," Sam said.

"I do not!" He pouted and crossed his arms.

Sam gave him a look.

"Can we go before I start to age," Toby asked from the back.

CJ laughed and looked at him.

"What?" He looked at her.

"You want to go before you start to age?"

"Yes. I still have quite a youthful look."

The others burst into laughter as Sam started driving again.

"What?" Toby shrugged. "I do not look like I'm forty-four years old, do I?"

Josh looked out the window so he wouldn't start laughing at him.

"Sam, you do know where you're going right?" Toby asked, ignoring Josh's apparent laughter.

"Toby, don't start again. You know it only makes things worse."

"What do you mean, CJ?"

"Well it is your fault that you two got lost in Connecticut," Josh said.

"What do you mean?"

"You told me to get off the freeway and we kept getting lost in Bridgeport, remember?" Sam asked.

"Whatever. Just drive, Princeton."

~Four Hours Later~

"We're in Illinois!" Sam announced, waking up the three sleeping passengers.

"Huh? No, I don't want to wake up, mommy," Josh said, still half asleep.

Toby nudged him. "Wake up, doofus."

"Hmm?" Josh opened his eyes. "What?"

"We're in Illinois." Toby said.

"Finally. That only took...forever."

"Yeah, all that we need now is a storm to keep us from Chicago," CJ said, causing Sam to groan. "What did I say?"

"You jinxed us!"

"Sam, you are too superstitious." Josh said.

"I'm serious. Something could happen." He gave CJ a look.

"Grow up, Sam. Besides, didn't Lt. what's-her-name give you the weather report?"

"Not in the mood, Toby," Sam said.

CJ sighed. "Sam, look outside. The sky is blue. The sun is out. It is gorgeous."

"For now." Sam said.

"Oh for goodness sakes, Sam! Quit it already! It's a nice day, so stop--" Just as he spoke, grey clouds began to gather and drops of rain started to fall.

Sam looked at CJ, Toby, and Josh.

"It's only a few drops," CJ said just as a large bolt of lightening lit up the sky, followed by a thunder clap. It then started to pour.

"I'd just like to thank you, CJ," Sam said sarcastically.

"Oh shut up," she said as she slid back in her seat, trying to hide her head.

"How much longer," Toby moaned as he hit his head with his hand.

"Don't beat yourself up over it," Josh said.

"Shut up."


Sam shook his head and tried to navigate his way through the pouring rain. It was going to be a long, long day.
