We got in the truck and drove away, after she got half of her monthly budget. "Sorry about almost killing you the other day." she said.
"It's okay. I'm still alive."
The rest of the ride was quiet. We arrived at town in an awkward silence. As I parked the car she asked me, "What store sells a lot of hoodies?"
"That one over there has the best hoodies." I stated as I pointed one out across the street from us.
As we walked into the store the clerk greeted us. "Hey, Jeff. Need a new hoodie?"
"No, I just brought a friend."
"A girlfriend I see. Shouldn't you be buying her lingerie instead of hoodies?"
"She's not my girlfriend! She's Slender's new proxy; and if I did have a girlfriend she would be buying her own lingerie and I would still get her hoodies."
That was awkward.
Before things could get worst Violet came over...I wonder if she heard his comment. "Can I buy these?" She had six hoodies.
"That'll be $30. We are having a sale buy one get one free." He added the last part, when I looked confused at the price. Since when did he have a sale and not put a sign up or something? Guess he was trying to say sorry for his mistake.
As we walked out of the store Violet spoke up. "Jeff, why did he think I was your girlfriend?"
"Um...Not a lot of girls wear hoodies around here. If they do they normally just wear it once a year." I'm exaggerating just a little. Hopefully she can't tell.
"Oh, okay. Can we go over there?" She pointed to a store with various articles of clothing, not just hoodies. We walked into the store and headed to the girls section.
I kinda watched from a distance when I saw her head to the underwear. See? She knows how to get her own underwear. I don't see why that clerk thought, if she was my girlfriend, that I would need to buy her underwear.
After 15 minutes of being in the store she asked, "Do we ever go anywhere fancy?"
"Yeah, just not often though."
"Okay." She went to pay for her 'things' and started out the door without telling me where she was headed.
"Where are you going?"
"To that store over there with the fancy dresses." She rolled her eyes. The way she said it was in her 'Duh!' tone. When we got into the store, she handed me her bags and ran off.
I ran off from Jeff in an effort to find some dresses I liked before he saw them. I don't want anyone to see my nice dresses before I wear them.
"Jeff!" I shouted as I stepped out of the stall in one of the dress I picked.
"What! Gosh woman." He didn't think I heard that last part, but I did and I will use it against him someday.
"Sorry, I was just wondering what dress looked better." I turned in a slow circle in the violet dress that came just above my knees with one strap over my left shoulder and sequins on it. " Or should I get this one?"
I hurriedly stepped back in and changed into a strapless red dress that came just below the knees with a black ribbon around it just under the chest area. I stepped out and within seconds Jeff responded. "The red one!"
Why did he have to yell? I'm standing right in front of him. I went into the stall one last time to change into my normal clothes before I paid. I grabbed the other dresses that I had found quickly and a pair of heels, and headed to check-out. As I paid I felt someone staring and realized it was Jeff. I quickly finish paying and said, "I think that is all for today."
I ran out of the store and to the truck. When I exited the store I thought I heard him say, 'Oh, okay.' with a hint of disappointment in his voice. I wonder why he was disappointed? I guess I'll find out later.
