Why she hadn't told Miranda yet was something that repeatedly ran through her mind. Throughout the week it made sense, considering it was finals week and she was insanely busy thanks to it. Studying, practicing all the time, working more just so she could have this one week off-- and what very little time she did have, she attempted to spend with Jackson. Usually that just entailed a few minutes after class or in the elevator or wherever else they could sneak a few kisses in, but it was still something. Either way, a text obviously wouldn't suffice. She needed to genuinely talk to Miranda about this entire thing, and she'd assumed Saturday would be the perfect chance.
Yet for some reason she kept chickening out. Perhaps it had to do with the fact that people kept popping in and out to help them prepare for the week-- Cricket in particular, who was unnaturally excited for this whole affair-- or perhaps it had to do with not knowing how to approach it at all. They'd agreed to keep it a secret, after all, and she wasn't so sure if he'd be okay with her telling Miranda. Regardless, she needed to tell someone, as she was bursting at the seams with this information. Not only that, but she wanted some advice in some form, as she had no idea how to navigate a relationship with a guy like Jackson without looking childish, stupid, and inexperienced. In a way this time away from him was good, as she knew she'd regroup, figure out a plan, and be prepared to do this right. Though she really did hate to be away from him for a full week.
Eventually she decided that the car ride up was the perfect time, but as Wes hopped into the backseat, she felt slightly disappointed. Shrugging it off along with Miranda's question about Simon (as she, too, was perfectly aware that he'd throw a fit no matter what they did), she sat in the front seat, wringing her hands. But as the music kicked on she, too, started bobbing her head along with it, and before she knew it she was singing right along far too loudly. She poked Miranda's arm in hopes to cheer her up and get her to join along, perhaps a little too eager in her attempts to forget about her worries entirely.
Besides, she had a full week to worry-- right now she just wanted to spend some time with her best friend.
