I woke up and shifted, trying to get comfy on the hard ground. I let my eyes droop closed again.
"Oh yeah!" I whispered, "my first day of work is today!"
I got up off the ground. I brushed the bits of sand off my old shirt and rummaged through our stuff to find my uniform. When i found it, I pulled the pretty white blouse over my head. Then I pulled the little black skirt around my waist. I pulled the pink apron out and tied it around my neck, and the other strap around my waist. I put my hair up In a messy bun and slipped the black flats on.(they where also in the uniform pack edge but I just noticed them now) josh was awake now and he was doing something with the food.
"Breakfast" he grunted as he handed me a slice of bread with butter on it.
"Thanks" I quickly thanked him, leaving the warehouse. I ate the bread as I walked. I finished it and brushed the crumbs off my fingertips before entering the shop.
"Hello" Jacob greeted me from behind the counter.
"Hey" I responded.
"Does anybody even get ice cream in the morning?" I asked looking around at the empty tables.
"No really" he shrugged, "but we can!"
"Are we allowed to do that?" I asked raising an eyebrow.
"Of course" we responded, "zach owns this place, and he's by best friend!"
"Oh" I nodded my head.
He grabbed a cone and handed it to me. Then he grabbed one for himself.
"Oh" I heard him say as he put his cone down.
"What?" I asked.
"You apron strap came untied. Want me to tie it for you?" He asked sweetly.
"Sure" I answered politely.
I felt him gently brush my hair out of the way with his finger tips, and I blushed. then he tied the strap.
"Thanks"I thanked him as he picked up his cone.
I filled my cone with a scoop of chocolate ice cream, and a scoop of strawberry.
Jacob just got vanilla.
We sat down at a table and licked our ice cream happily.
"So have any secrets?" He asked out of the blue.
"Uh..... Not really" I giggled nervously.
"Aw common, you can tell me" he answered, "I mean..... While it's just the two of us."
"What?..... Us? No.... No..no, I mean ya in like you and all but no I......" I answered hurriedly.
"I didn't mean......" He tried to talk but I just kept going,
"Yes ur hot, and ya that little 'thing' between us I felt it too, but I have a lot on my mind right now...."
"O my god I'm not hitting on you!" He looked me in the eye, "I'm gay"
"Oh....." I answered, embarrassed, "I'm so sorry I don't mean to... I just...."
"No it's fine" he responded
"No really" I insisted, "I'm really sorry"
"It's ok you didn't know" he answered staring at his ice cream. It started to drip and he liked it.
It got awquarldy silent and I liked my ice cream, wishing my face wouldn't be so red. It was pretty embarrassing. I wished someone would walk through the doors and rescue me from the awquard momment, but nobody did.
I nibbled on my cone.... "So...."
"Uh?" He asked easing his eye brows.
"Never mind" I shook my head.
"Do you think your brother could like me?" He blurted.
I almost choked on my cone, "uh.... " I said calm as possible, "I'm sorry jacob, but he's straight as a pole!"
At least as far as I know..... I thought about it......Then I realised I really didn't know anything about my brother. The past had been wiped away from my mind and I would never get to know him unless I spent time with him! I need to spend more time with my brother.....
