A Crazy Summer

It's the summer before my senior year in college. I have many jobs to pay off my debt and to keep myself busy, because my roommate always has a different guy over. One afternoon a guy walks into the music store I work at, and suddenly my summer is not so boring anymore, because I get to look forward to seeing him every few days.


1. A Boring Start

My name is Arianna, but everyone calls me Ari. I am 21 and in a couple months I will be starting my senior year of college. I currently live in London, and my family lives far away so i don't really see them. I have 3 jobs one at a music store, the other a book store, and in the evenings I am a waitress at a bar. My family thinks I am working so much to pay off some of my college debt, and they are half right, but mostly I try to avoid going home. My roommate always has a different guy over, sometimes I wonder if she even comes out of her room, and lets just say she is a screamer, so I don't get much sleep.My summer has sucked so far. I have worked, tried to sleep, and worked some more. 


Beep....Beep.....Beep..... I slam my fist down to turn off my alarm clock. I look at the time at realize I'm late. I put my hair in a messy bun, get dressed, and brush my teeth. I decided I would just grab Starbucks for breakfast during my break, because I always need my coffee I don't know how I would survive. Today is Friday so I work at the music store, and afterwards I will have to run home to shower and get ready to go to the bar.


My boss is waiting for me the second I walk through the door. She looks really mad. I have worked here over a year and she is always trying to find a reason to be mad at me, but sadly today I gave her a reason to be.

" You're late."

" I know I know, I'm so sorry my alarm didn't go off this morning."

" Give me a reason as to why I shouldn't fire you."

" Are you serious? This is the first time I have ever been late, and I am the best employee you've got right now."

" Fine, don't let it happen again."


Thank god I won this one. I don't understand what her problem is. She is always doing this which I don't understand. Why me, this other guy who works here, Garrett, he sits in the behind the counter smoking weed all day.

Friday's are the day we get new CD's, so I'm busy opening boxes and finding out where the new stuff was supposed to go, when I hear the bell go off that lets me know there is a customer.


I looked up and there is this guy he was gorgeous unlike anybody I have ever seen before. He is staring at me waiting for an answer so I new he had asked me a question, but I was busy drooling so I had no idea what he just said.

" Sorry, what was that?"

" My sister's birthday is in a few days and I wanted to get her something she would like but I don't know what that would be. Do you know anything she might like?"

" Umm, try 5 Seconds of Summer, they are my favorite maybe she will like them to."

" Okay, thanks."

I'm still staring at him like a creep and he is looking at me expectantly.

" Anything else I can help you with?"

" Yeah, where can I find the CD?"

" Oh, of course, sorry."

Wow can I make anymore of a fool of myself than I already have. I find the CD he pays for it and right before he walks out the door he turns around.

" Thanks, OH, and I"m Zayn by the way."

As the door closes behind him I start to feel excited and a little hope. Hope that maybe he will return!
