Coming back, Luke received a call about a photo shoot for a magazine down by the lake.
"We have to leave soon, Kennedy do you want to come with us or would you like us to drop you to the mall? You can shop around until we come back." Luke Asked
"The mall sounds cool! I could buy some mittens, probably the only thing I could afford too." I replied
"Are you sure you will be ok? I don't want you to get hurt." Calum added with a scared face.
"Dont worry. I'll be fine thanks!" I said with a positive look
"as long as you are safe." Calum replied as we got ready to head out.
We drove for about half an hour until we reached a huge outlet mall. I got off the car and waved goodbye as I walked to the door. There's so many stores to choose from! I hope there are sales, I can't afford anything to pricey.
I walked past H & M and I saw a poster written "Huge fall sale! 50% off selected Items!" I was definitely intrigued but I hope there sales could lower some to the $10-$15 range. I went in and looked around.
I stopped by the leggings and they were five bucks each. I shuffled around looking for a small. Thank goodness I found a few black ones. I don't want to be walking around with sparkly pink leggings or zebra prints. I paid over at the cashier and left. All I had left was $4.50 the only thing i could possibly buy would be a small caramel apple spice.
The line up at Starbucks was massive! there was about 15 people in line. Waiting at the end of the line I decided to pop out my flip-phone and I saw a message from Calum. "Hey! We just got to the photo shoot, just wondering if you are ok :)" I smiled at my phone and punched in "haha I'm ok :) Have fun at your photo shoot!"
After twenty frickin minutes I finally stood in front of the cash register. I ordered and THANK GOSH I had enough money because I forgot about tax and all. Another long wait for my drink. As I waited I thought about how long will I have to stay with 5SOS. I don't want to become a distraction and I don't want to bother them. Maybe I can find a job around here.
I got my drink and took a seat at a table in the eatery. I scanned the place looking for a garbage can to throw my empty cup.
My phone started vibrating and it was Calum.
"Hey! whats up?"
"Hey! we just finished the photo shoot. We are heading back to the mall. Are you done or do you need a little more time?"
"Oh! you can pick me up now, I ran out of money a while ago"
"Okay we are on our way"
'Thanks!" I hung up.
I began walking back to the entrance but I forgot which entrance I came from. I started walking along the edges of the mall hoping I could find the same doors I came from. Nope. I started getting worried because I've never been to this mall before and I don't know where I could ask for help. I don't even know what part of this mega mall i am at. I knew coming to the mall would of been a bad idea. Maybe I could call Calum. He could tell me where to go.
I took out my phone and realized that it ran out of battery. I dint charge for 3 days now and I don't have my charger on me. I was taught that panic was not the solution to anything so I ran out of the building and circled it until I find the same entrance. No luck. The sun was setting and it was getting cold. I decided to take a break. Maybe I could sit here and Ill search again when I have the energy.
Now it was getting dark. I fell asleep all alone at the corner of a mall. I heard come one walking but I kept closing my eyes. It got closer to me and it stopped. I decided to look up just because if it was a bad guy I would attempt to run. But no. It was Calum. He saw me and immediately came down and hugged me in relief.
"Kennedy! are you ok? I was so worried! I thought something happened to you and you dint pick up your phone! Im so glad I found you!" Calum said with a scared-relieved voice.
"I-I-I c-c-oul-d-n-t-t-t find the exit. I wanted to call you for help but my phone died." I replied with a stuttering voice due to the cold.
"Lets get you back to the car." Calum replied
He helped me up and gave me a big hug. Then we walked to the car.
