As I was walking through the streets of Chicago, at the corner of my eye I noticed a little white Van with a window on the side and a huge ice cream cone painted on it.
"Hmm, maybe some ice-cream will help me get my mind off this" I thought to myself as I began walking towards it.
Just as I reach the window, a guy around 16 with straight black hair, a black leather jacket, a white shirt, navy blue jeans and sunglasses walks up to me.
"Hey there. My name's Donny and yours must be beautiful"
I immediately didn't like him. It wasn't his fault though(mostly)
"Hey I'm Cece and before you get any ideas, i want to let you know that I'm taken so if that's all your interested in then i would appreciate it if you kindly left me alone"
So I lied to him. Big deal! And anyway it's none of his business. And i had to, ever since what happened with....oh its too painful to even think about
"Hey cool it. We can be friends right?" He tried to diffuse the situation
"yeah i guess."
The van driver, obviously quite irritated at this point that neiher of us had ordered, decided to start the engine and begin to drive away.
Until the new guy decided to call him back.
"HEY BRO HOLD ON A MINUTE GEEZ"
Luckily for us the ice cream van hadn't gotten far and decided to reverse back to us.
"Thank God" we both exclaimed
"Thanks for comin' back. We're really sorry to keep you waiting. I'll just have a scoop of strawberry in a cup" I said to the man with an apologetic look on my face
"I think I'll get a Choco Blast"
"Very well. That'll be $4.25 please" the salesman said
As I started fumbling around in my purse for loose change, the new guy said to me
"It's okay I got this" and handed the the salesman $5
"Hey Thanks. Guess you can't really judge a book by it's cover." I said to him
"What's that supposed to mean?"
"Well let's face it. The whole biker/bad boy get-up doesnt exactly give off the best impression but hey atleast we know you can be a gentleman"
"Hey i resent that! Kind of. Should i be offended?"
We both burst into a fit of giggles.
As the salesman handed us our order and proceeded to drive away, i decided that i really needed to get back to the hospital. I could eat the ice-cream on the way.
"It was fun hanging with you. Maybe we can do this again sometime but for real? Right now I gotta run but I'd like to get to know you a little better" I said to Donny
"Hey no problem. Here's my card" he pulled a little white business card out of his pocket and handed it to me
"Donny Josh. Redcarpet Supplies Ltd."
On it was scribbled what appeared to me to be a phone number.
"Thanks I'll give you a call sometime" I called as I ran back towards the hospital.
"I'm sure you will!" Donny muttered to himself
"i'm sure you will"
