The bell to the restaurant rang, signaling another customer. I looked at the door and saw Justin walk in. He saw me, smiled, and walked towards the corner of the restaurant by the window. I took my apron off, putting it down.
Angel: What are you doing?
I pointed at Justin. She saw him and nodded. I took a deep breath and walked around the counter, straightening out my white dress shirt. When I got to the same booth he was in, I sat down across from him. He looked up at me, smiling.
Justin: Shouldn't you be working?
Me: I wanted to talk to you.
Me: So where's Selena?
Me: She seems to be working a lot lately, huh?
Justin: It doesn't seem like it. She never calls and when she talks to me, we always start arguing.
Me: Maybe she's stressed out and doesn't want you to get involved.
Justin: It's possible.
I noticed my boss, Kyle, was walking out of his office.
Me: I gotta get back to work.
He nodded as I got up, fast walking towards my work area. I put my apron back on, walking towards Justin with a pad and pen in my hands.
Me: Can I get you something?
Justin: Sure. Can I get a Sprite and the Teriyaki chicken special?
I wrote it down. I turned around, seeing Kyle walk back into his office. I turned to Justin and mouthed 'thank you'. He smiled and winked at me. I rolled my eyes and walked off.
She walked away, serving other customers. I looked at my phone on the table. Nothing. It's as if she refuses to speak to me. It's been that way ever since she met Dawn. Is that why? Does she not like Dawn? Maybe. I looked out the window, letting out a sigh.
I handed Angel Justin's order. As she started cooking the chicken, the bell chimed. I turned around, seeing Demi Lovato walk in. She sat down at the counter in front of me. I walked towards her, leaning over the counter.
Me: Hey, Demi.
She smiled at me.
Demi: Hey, Dawn. What's up?
Me: Nothing really. What about you?
Demi: Working on a new album.
Me: Justin's here if you want to talk to him.
Demi: Nah. I just came to get some coffee.
I nodded and pushed myself off the counter.
Me: To go, right?
Me: Decaf or regular?
I nodded and walked over to the coffee machine. I poured some in a to-go cup, covered it, and turned around, handing her the cup. She stood up, taking the cup from my hands.
Me: You're welcome.
She turned around and walked towards the door. I turned around, seeing Justin's order on the counter. I took the plate and glass and walked over to Justin's table. When I got there, I set down the plate and glass on the table.
Me: If you need anything else, I'm here.
He smiled, then took a sip of his Sprite. I smiled back, walking off to serve another customer.
As I hung my apron on the rack, I felt two arms wrap around my waist and pick me up.
Me: Justin, put me down!
He spun me around in the air, making me shriek.
Me: I hate you.
I felt myself being lowered, my eyes meeting his. His eyes showed...hurt.
Justin: Do you really?
I shook my head.
Me: I could never hate you, Justin.
There was silence between us. I noticed his gaze was no longer on my eyes, but on my lips. I bit my lip and pulled away from him. I was about to say something when my phone went off in my pocket. I took it out, seeing a text from Tori on the screen.
'Starbucks. Now.' - Tori
I put my phone away and looked at Justin.
Me: I gotta go.
Justin: See you later?
I walked past him towards my car.
