12. Sunddenly I see (KT Tunsall)
I got on the bakery worried. I need money to go to London. Money to pay the plane tickets, the hotel, the food and the registration. I need to work more.
"Hello Katy" Mr. Wakefield says
He usually is not here. Not this time
"Can I talk to you?" he asks
"Well we have a problem. Lindy, the girls who works in the night shift is moving to another city. My wife and her use to work here at night. But now that we have a granddaughter we decided to stop working here to take care of her. Anyway, the problem is that I need two persons to work here at night. Steve had already said yes. Do you want?"
This is perfect! I need more money and there was my opportunity! Great!
"Good. You will work until 10 Pm."
Ok two more hours. I can do this. I know it is going to be tough. But I can do this.
"Are you crazy?" Mandy asks
"No" I say
"Yes you are" Caren said as she ate a piece of her launch
"You are going to work more!" Mandy says
"Yes, so what?" I say
"Katy you can't do this. You wake up early to practice, you go to school and now you are going to work six hours a day!"
"It can looks like I am crazy. But I need the money. I need to go too London. Maybe there I can get some sponsor. Then I won't need to work so much. It's just one month. I can handle it.
After that day I talk to Katy she became a little...distant from me. I know I could had been more...kind to her but I really didn't understand why she was so angry to me. We were only friends after all.
"So you are staying until ten today?" I ask to her
"Yes" she says "I am going to work with Steve. I am sure he is a better work mate than you" she teases me
"Oh I doubt that!" I say laughing
"Why are so sure?"
"Does he dance like that? "I say and started dancing like a crazy person
"So did you listen to the cd?" I ask
"Yes I did. I liked it. Music makes me relax. Distract me from all my problems"
"It's the power of music baby"
A client came in. I look at her. Things can get back to the normal. We only need time.
"So I've heard you said that I'll be a better work mate than Harry. I hope you don't get disappoint but I can't dance like him"
I laugh. "Oh man. That's so sad"
He laughs. "You are in high school right?"
"Yes. You already graduated right?"
"Yes but I an not in university"
"Why not?" I ask before thinking. Oh this was too personal. "Oh sorry I don't have the right to ask you "
"No problem. I don't know why to do. I just want to live my life. I want to travel the world. Only me and a back pack but I need money. So I am here working"
"Travel the world? Interesting"
"What about you Katy? What are tour plans?"
"I would like to be a professional ice skater"
"Harry told me you practice a lot. You must be good"
"You and Harry are close to each other?"
"Yes. We know each other for a long time. I've dates his sister when I was in high school. Our relationship didn't work out but Harry and got close to each other. We are friend since"
"What?" he asks confuse
"I imagine Harry's sister after you two broke up. Like, she had to see you because of Harry"
"She was okay with that"
"What about him? He was glad when we broke up. He knew me. He knows I am trouble. He was relieved that I would stay away from his sister"
That is new. Harry is a jerk but he don't want to his sister to be with guys like him
"You look surprised" he says
"It's just that Harry is such a trouble guy but he made sure that his sis saty away from guys like him"
"Harry is not like that...I thought you knew that"
"Katy" Abby calls from the kitchen
I enter the kitchen still thinking on Steve. Why he thought that? And why Harry is not like...like what? An idiot? A jerk? A guy who use girls and put them way? Harry is exactly this guy.
