Chapter 2

School was boring so when the last bell went signalling the end of school I was almost grateful. I slowly made my way to my locker and gathered my things making my way out of school and towards the ‘Clear Blue Café ‘down the street where I worked. When I walked inside the familiar smell of coffee and food hit me immediately making me smile. I made my way to the back where I replaced my school bag for an apron and note pad ready to work. I loved working here the people where funny and always made me feel welcome, I remembered the first time I came here with my dad and we laughed and made jokes the whole time. Thinking of that day made tears appear in my eyes; I wiped them away and made my way to the front counter. 

Time went by gradually but I was happy that it did I didn’t want to go home and see my mum, I wasn’t in the mood to get in a fight over nothing, heck I didn’t even know half of what was happening when we’re fighting. It mainly consisted of me coming home and my mum making some reason to hit me, if there was a reason. Just as I was day dreaming about leaving home and getting far away from my mum the little bell rang signalling someone had entered the café. I looked up to be met with those same brown eyes I saw this afternoon, without me realising a small smile started to appear on my lips causing him to grin in response.

“Well hello there, Katie” Liam said walking up to the counter.

“Hey” I said a bit too happily, which only made his smile grow.

“I didn’t know you worked here” He said a hint of mischief in his voice.

“Well you did just move here” I told him a little confused with his statement.

“Well that’s true” He said bluntly. After a few minutes of silence I decided to ask if he wanted anything.

“Umm, did you want something” I said questioning the real reason he came here.

“Oh, umm right. I’ll just get a cappuccino no sugar” He said. I made my way to the coffee machine and made his coffee.

“Here you go. That’ll be $3.50” I said passing him the cup.

“Here. Keep the change” He said handing me a $5 bill. I looked up to see him staring at me smiling.

“I’ll see you around?” He asked hopefully.

“Sure, I mean we do go to the same school. Right” That only made him smile more.

“Yeah, I guess we do” And with that made his way to the door only to stop once he got there. He turned around making sure I looked right at him and winked before exiting the café.

After Liam had left I looked up to see that it was time to close. I quickly finished cleaning and locked the door making my way home. With each step I took my heart sank a little more knowing what was ahead of me when I reached home.
