2. Shopping Trip
I ran over to the jeans and Alice just stared around at all the dark colors. Chase decided not to come and let me and Alice hang out. "Can I look at the dresses?" She asked. "Nope." I said. "Why?" She whined. "Fine, go." I said. She skipped away and I grabbed a few pairs of jeans to try on. After trying a few on I bought two pairs and walked over to look at the combat boots. I grabbed some and tried them on. Perfect fit. I grabbed and tried a few more items and found Alice with about 5 sundresses in hand. "Jeez, got enough?" I asked. "Lighten up." She said. "Was that a sun reference?" I snarled. "Uhh... no?" She said. "Make up?" She asked. "Fine." I sighed. We walked over to look at the make up. Someone pale caught my eye. I turned and saw Taylor, an old friend who moved away. Years ago. Alice didn't know him, but I did. A little girl ran up to him saying, "Taylor, look what I got!" He just smiled and said, "Quiet Ashley, not so loud." He picked her up and his sister, Tiffany walked up. "Ashley, you wanna go look at the shoes?" She asked in a calm voice I've never heard before. "Alice, I'll be right back." I said. "Kay." She said, looking at eyeliner. I walked over. "Taylor?" I asked in amazement. "Lauren? Are you- What?" He said, smiling. Tiffany just scoffed and walked away with Ashley, the little girl. "What crawled up her pants today?" I asked. "We were on a plane for 10 hours. Guess." He joked. "Taylor, you're not as pale as I remember you. Your eyes are green again..." I said. "Tell me you didn't-" "I did." He cuts me off. "Yeah, she was cool about it." He said. "She said, and I qoute, 'If you give me something in return, I can make you mortal.'" He said. I stood in shock. "What'd you give?" I asked. "Take a guess." He said. "I didn't have a choice. She took 'em." He says. "Blake's red Vans?" I gasped. "You loved those! He gave those to your before he-" "I know, I know. But Deliah doesn't let anyone chose." He said. I'm gonna kill her. Right after I get Alice to safety, and tell Chase.
