Chapter 38 of "Some Changes Are Good"

Donna opened the front door to the Hanson's house and placed her rollerblades next to the door. She ran up the stairs and down the hall towards the guys bedroom. She knocked lightly on the closed door. Isaac opened it for her.

"Hey Ike," Donna said as she walked into the room.

"Hi Donna," Isaac said. "I hope you don't mind. I invited Jess to come with us." Donna shook her head.

"Of course I don't mind," she said as she looked around the room. Zac was sitting on the floor, putting on his rollerblades. "Where's Taylor?" Donna asked. Isaac shrugged.

"I guess in the bathroom," he said. Zac snickered.

"He has to look perfect for his GIRLFRIEND." Donna gave Zac a look.

"Watch it Zac," she said smiling.

"Guys?" Donna heard Jess yell from downstairs.

"Up here Jess!" Donna yelled. Jess appeared at the door a few seconds later.

"Hey Jess," Ike said.

"Hi Ike, Donna, Zac," Jess said.

"Hey Jess," Zac said. "Guess what?"

"What is it Zac?" Jess asked as she leaned against the wall.

"Taylor has a girlfriend!" Zac yelled.

"Zac shut up," Taylor said as he entered the room.

"Oh really Tay," Jess said slyly. "Out with it. Do I know her?"

"You know her very well. She's in this room right now in fact," Isaac said. "Donna?" Jess asked. Donna nodded and smiled. "That's great!" Jess exclaimed. "But...what about Josh?" Donna sighed.

"Well, we broke up," Donna said.

"Why?" "Jess asked. "I thought you two were like the perfect couple."

"Not quite," Taylor said looking at Donna.

"Josh was very possessive," Donna began. "And he was convinced that something was going on between Taylor and I. And he began hitting me." Jess and Ike gasped. Jess walked over to Donna and hugged her.

"Why didn't you tell me?" she asked. Donna shrugged.

"I just wanted to keep it a secret, I guess. But there's nothing to worry about. Hopefully he'll leave me alone."

"He better," Jess said. "Cause if he doesn't, me and Ike will kick his butt. Right Ike?" Isaac grinned and nodded.

"Right Jess, he said.

Zac, who had been sitting on the floor listening finally spoke up.

"Hold on," he said. Everyone turned to him.

"What is it Zac?" Taylor asked. Zac continued.

"If Ike has a girlfriend, and Tay has a girlfriend, how come I don't get one?" Donna giggled.

"Zac you're a little young to have a girlfriend," she said.

"Yeah Zac. Maybe in a few years," Ike added.

"Okay. But you guys have to promise me something," Zac said standing up.

"What is it Zac?" Jess asked.

"None of that lovey-dovey stuff in front of me. I don't want to get sick." Everyone laughed.

"We promise," Taylor said. "So is everyone ready to go?" They nodded. "Okay then," he said as he picked up his blades. "Let's go." Everyone went downstairs and put on their rollerblades. They skated out the door and headed towards the elementary school.
