“Which is the main reason I refuse to let Isaac drag me out tonight for another one of his disastrous fix-ups.
There’s another reason I don’t like to date—but I’m trying not to think about her.
“Come on, man,” Isaac whines. It’s the third time he’s called me in twenty minutes. “I promise it won’t be like last time.”
By “last time” he means when he hooked me up with Stacey Perkins. Apparently she’s a vegan—which is cool. Her choice. But nobody told me until after I brought her to Outback Steakhouse. Then she asked the waitress if they had any “cruelty free” items on the menu.
Things only went downhill from there. Especially when I still ordered a steak. There are few things worse than an irritated vegan.”

If my mom comes in and finds a gorgeous girl in a skimpy dress passed out on my worn gray rug, I’ll be grounded for the rest of eternity. Especially since all I have on at the moment are my Batman boxers. Pretty sure she won’t buy my ghost-guardian angel/freak-of-nature theories either.
I stumble toward the door, prepared to barricade it with my dresser if I have to. “I’m fine, Mom,” I say as I grab the first T-shirt I see off my floor and throw it on, along with my gym shorts.
“Then what’s all that banging?”
Come on, Vane. Think!
Inspiration strikes. “I found a date roach in my bed.”
“Did you kill it?” My mom sounds farther away, like she jumped back.
“I tried to, but now I can’t find it.” I don’t need to worry about my mom offering to help. She’s a big believer in the whole boys should kill all the bugs philosophy.
“Well, I won’t distract you, then,” she says, and I can’t help smiling.”
Shannon Messenger, Let the Sky Fall
