4. Chapter three



I have to admit, my heart started racing. I ignored Diane’s text, blocked my phone, and left it on the table with the screen facing down. Cameron arrived and sat down in front of me.

“Brought the napkins,” he joked.

“Good,” I answered as I chuckled. I was kinda nervous because of the text though.

“Hey, so,” he started, “are you looking for a new job?”

“Not right now. I think I might take a break from working,” I said.

“Shame the shop had to close, huh?”

“Tell me about it! I really liked it,” I said.

“Me too.”

“But we’ll keep hanging out, right?” I asked.

“Unless you don’t want to,” he said with a flirty voice that made me want to cry.

I chuckled and looked down to the table. Suddenly my phone started buzzing, I figured it would be Diane, so I just left it there as we both stared at it.

“Aren’t you gonna take it?” Cameron asked.

“Oh, um, yeah,” I said with a trace of doubt in my voice. I really didn’t want to answer, but I now had no choice. “I’ll be right back,” I said as I was standing up and grabbing my phone.

I didn’t want to argue with Diane in front of Cameron, so I just walked out of the shop. I looked at the screen while walking, and I felt a huge relief when I realised that it read “Grandma calling”.

“Hello?” I asked.

“Riley! Hi, honey!” she said.

“Hi, grandma. Sorry for taking so long to answer. We’re having ice cream and there’s some noise inside, so I got out,” I lied.

“Are you with Cameron?” she asked.

“Yes,” I said. “I’ll get home in a little while.”

“Ok. How was the talk?”

“Well, you know, a little boring,” I said, making her laugh.

“Alright,” she said. “See you here, sweetie.”

“Bye, love you,” I said.

“Love you too,” she replied. I constantly told her I loved her to let her know how much I appreciated her presence. I don’t know what I’d do without her.

I walked back into the shop. I supposed Cameron would ask me why I wasn’t answering my phone, so I had to think for an excuse, quick. But, surprisingly, he didn’t. I got to the table and sat down.

“It was my grandma,” I explained.

“Oh,” he said smiling. “Is everything cool with her?”

“Yeah, she just wanted to know how the talk had been,” I said.

“And did you tell her it had been boring?”

“Actually, yes,” I said, and we both laughed.

“Good, because it was,” he said after he caught some breath.

“Hey,” I said, “I told my grandma I would be home soon, so I think I’d better get going”

“Let’s go,” he stood up and put his phone in his pocket. “I’ll walk you home.”




I was at home reading, waiting for Riley to arrive, when suddenly the phone started ringing. I put my book down and got up to answer it.


“Mum?” I heard a very familiar voice say.

“James?” I asked surprised.

“Hi, mum.”

I couldn’t believe it. “James Brooks? As in, Riley’s father?”
