I woke up to My Alarm this Morning and my eyes were burning from the brightness of the sun. Great, it's Work Day. Which means, I have to go there as early as possible and don't be late.
I quickly got up and rubbed my eyes. Christopher was still asleep. Might be best to not wake him up, he was probably exhausted. I laughed at the memory of yesterday.
I quickly freshened up and took a bath. I ate my Breakfast, which was a Nutella-filled Sandwich. I was already ready in about 30 Minutes. I checked the Clock, it was almost 9 o'clock. I wrote down a note for Christopher which said:
Hey Babe, went to work. By the way, better make sure to eat your Breakfast!
Love lots, Ashley xx <3 :)
Okay, I just wrote that note to let him know I went to work. I didn't want him to panic and such. So, I placed the Note on our Bedside Table and ran off. I took a Cab going there and quickly paid him as we arrived.
The Restaurant was just similar to my old restaurant, but bigger. Sounds like I'm gonna love it. I wanted to make my First Impression good. So, I tied my Hair in a bun and tried to look as neat as possible.
As I went in, I bumped into a girl who looked troubled and fell to the ground. "Oh my, I'm so sorry!" I apologized as quick as possible. She gave me a warm smile, a dimple appearing on her lower cheek.
"Oh no, it's fine. Get that all the time." She said, rubbing her head. "Oh, are you sure? I'm so sorry." I helped her get up and she looked very anxious. "Are you alright?" I asked, a mixture of curiousness and pity in my voice. "Oh, I'm fine. I'm just..." She said, her voice trailing away.
I looked at her, furrowing my eyebrows. "Are you the new manager?" She asked looking up. I could tell she was around my Age, she seemed nervous. Were they nervous about me?
"Yes," I replied with a smile. "nice to meet you!" I tried to sound really nice to get rid of her nervousness.
She sighed in relief . Probably thought that I was strict or something? "Hello there, I'm Lavender. I work here. 22 Years old and proud." She said, placing her arms between on her waist. "I'm Ashley Brown, and I'll be your manager. Now, let's get inside, I believe the restaurant will open soon." I told her and the both of us walked inside together.
Work was fun today, I got to meet all my co-workers, and they were great! We had a fun time and Lavender looked like a fun girl. We had lots of things in Common, fortunately. So, I'm guessing I will tag along with her soon. "Good Bye Everyone!" I bade everyone goodbye.
"Good-bye Ashley!" They all screamed out in unison, cheerfully. It was already sunset.
Boy, what a long day. I walked to my House. The walk to my House takes a long but satisfying time. On My Way, there was an Ice Cream Stand and a park.
They sold different flavors. Vanilla, Cookies N' Cream, Chocolate, and Strawberry. I walked to the Ice Cream stand and ordered one Chocolate Ice Cream for myself. Someone behind me covered my eyes by surprise. I turned around and saw it was Louis. "Louis! Thought you were a total stranger who wanted to kidnap me." I scoffed, giggling.
"Who's Louis?" He said, tilting his head. Wait... Isn't this guy Louis? "What....?" "Just kidding, yeah, it's me Ashley." He said, smiling. He got me there. I thought it was Christopher at first, but it was Louis. I was about to pay for my Ice Cream but Louis slapped my Hand. "No, I'll do it." He told me, paying the Man. He bought himself a Chocolate Ice Cream too.
We sat at the park bench, watching the sunset. We kept chatting about what happened the past years. God, I missed him a lot. "It's a surprise you still remember me." He said skittishly. I looked at him, totally confused. "Why would I forget you?" I asked him, licking my ice cream. "I just thought so. Happy to know you still remember me." He grinned.
I saw the sunset, it was beautiful. Gave a warm feeling. I laid my head on Louis' Shoulder. He didn't mind at all. "I love the Sunset." I said aloud.
"I love the Sunset" She said aloud, I chuckled. "I Missed the times we used to watch this." I told her honestly. My eyes glimmering as I looked at her. I figured that I wanted to tell her how much I feel.
Harry and the lads told me that it would be a good idea if I told her right away. Trust the Boys in everything they say. But, I'll just do it later. The Sun had already set and we had already finished our Ice Cream. "You know what Lou, I really really missed you." She admitted. I stroked her hair, just like how I used to. "I Missed you too Ashley-poo." I said, smiling.
Without a word, she hugged me. I wrapped my arms around her too and we both let go. She checked her watch and frowned. "I have to get back now." She announced and it sounded like she didn't want to leave. "But we're gonna hang out tomorrow, right?" I asked her, assuming she'd say yes. "Of course!" She exclaimed. She got off the Park Bench and stood up. "Uh, want me to bring you home?" I offered, hoping she'd say yes.
She thought for a second and nodded. "I'd like that." She answered smiling.
I walked her home, the walk was relaxing. I decided to tell her as soon as we arrive to her place. Hope she loves me back, I really do. It was a silent walk, but it wasn't too bad. It actually was nice.
We arrived at her doorstep. The house was too big for just one person, so who does she live with? I didn't let the thought get to me and walked to her porch. We turned to each other and made eye contact. I scratched the back of my neck.
"There's something that I really wanted to tell you Ashley..." I said, my legs shaking. Damn, why am I so nervous? "Sure, what is it?"
I inched myself closer to her and looked into her eyes. "Uh, I uh..." I was cut off by the Door bursting open. It was the blonde dude I saw. "Hey Ashley." He said and turned towards me. "Who are you?" He asked, a hint of irritation in his voice. Did he hear me? "Oh, Christopher! This is Louis, my Best Friend. And Louis, this is my Boyfriend, Christopher." She introduced us to each other. When she said that, my heart literally broke. I felt broken.
"So, what were you gonna say again Lou?" She asked me, looking up to me. I licked my lips. "Oh, uh... Just wanted you to text me about tomorrow. Oh, and I'm really excited about tomorrow. I have to go. Bye." I explained quickly and walked away. I felt Christopher glaring at me. "Oh, bye Lou!" She called out and I waved goodbye.
I just wanted to go home and be alone in my Room. She had moved on.... But how can I move on?
