You’re Mine by Penny Brooks novel Chapter 188

Chapter 188


The ride to Disneyland is long, a little over four hours, but at least the high school rented plush buses for us to travel in.

Harper and I sit together, with Ryan and Sadie in front of us, and the girls have kept up their conversation ever since we left campus, Sadie going on and on about her favorite rides and snacks at the park.

"and we have to get the Dole Whip, Ryan. It's so good. I know you don't like pineapple, but you must try it.” Sadie nudges Ryan in the tubs, and he grunts in reply.

I glance over at Harper, noting how her gaze is at half—mast.

My girl looks sleepy and I reach out, briefly settling my hand on her thigh.

“Tired?” She nods, her eyes falling closed for a moment.

“Maybe I should nap before we get there.” “You can use my shoulder as a pillow, I suggest, because I've become that guy.

The one who's so completely into his girl, he'd do anything to make her happy.

Harper's eyes pop open and she smiles.

“I'd love that.” “Harp, are you seriously going to take a nap right now? I was just going to tell you about Splash Mountain.” Sadie turns in her seat, rising up onto her knees so she can look directly at us as she grips her headrest with both hands.

“Ryan's no fun. He's only talking to me in grunts, like I'm an annoyance to him. And now you're about to fall asleep too. What is wrong with you people?"

“Let them sleep so they can actually enjoy Disneyland later; I tell Sadie, wishing she'd calm down.

I like Harper's best friend, but sometimes she's way too hype.

“We're in for a long night, Harper says as she rests her head on my shoulder.

“I need rest.” "So do I, Ryan says from his seat in front of me.

Sadie purses her lips into a pout.

“I'm too excited to sleep.” “Try.

Ryan grabs Sadie's hand and tugs, causing her to tumble into his lap with a giggle.

He gives her a deep kiss before pushing her out of his lap and back into her seat.

"Close your eyes, baby.

Relax for a minute.” If she could relax for as many minutes as possible, I definitely wouldn't protest.

Leaning in, I press my lips to Harper's temple, breathing in her sweet, tropical scent.

"You should definitely try to take a nap.

We're going to be up all night long.” “I can't wait to see everything.

Like, I don't even know what ride to get on first“ “I'll help you,’ Sadie calls from seat.

‘I've got your back, bestie.” "I know you do bestie,” Harper says to her before she returns to our conversation.

“But yeah, I'm so tired.

I've been anxious all day, excited about the trip.” “It's going to be fun.” I grab her hand, interlacing our fingers.

"I haven't been there in years.” "Right."

She's quiet for a moment, her fingers curling around mine, and I wish I knew what was going on in that pretty head of hers.

"These last few weeks have been so wild.” “What do you mean?” "Getting into my dream college.

The party and the whole Blake and Sadie thing at your house—"

"I heard that,” Sadie interrupts.

Harper's laughter is soft.
