1. Starbucks

 

For 7 years I have loved him. For 7 years I have waited. Sitting in the caverns I now call home. I spent every dime I had on him- to make him happy- and he doesn't even know my name. Have we ever truly had a deep conversation with each other? Never. I only show up where I know he is going to be and act as if I didn't even expect him. He thinks nothing more of it than a "pleasant coincidence." I thought he would never give me a chance to be able to speak with him alone, but today was that day...

We were both sitting in Starbucks, the only place he goes to on Monday mornings, twelve feet away from each other. He was in his favourite spot in the back of the cafe next to the edge of the window. It was his little corner; his sanctuary. When he got up to leave, I stood and ran into him as he was walking out. Coffee was spilled all over the blouse I had taken from a local Cato's store. I looked slightly annoyed because I knew that if I went back to get another, someone would notice. And no one but everyone knows what I do to those who say something when they end up noticing. I have forced those around me to keep me in the shadows, for no steel bars could keep me away from Atashi Sakarumo. I haven't been arrested for any serious crimes, oh no. Just the occasional loitering, waiting for him to show up to his spot only to be let down three hours later. People say i'm crazy but I know that i'm in love with him. 

"I'm so sor- hey..," he has finally realized that he has seen me before. "Hey Katana, is this one of your favourite spots as well?" Oh no, Atashi, I've been watching you for a long time now, and that is why i'm here. Is what i should have said, instead I replied with, "Yeah. I love the chocolate mocha. It just makes me so happy!" His eyes lit up and I knew he wanted to say that it was his too, but someone behind me was causing his mood to drop. I turned around and a beautiful barbie-looking woman with dirty blonde hair and hazel eyes standing next to the door smiling at him. She held out her hand and said, "Come, love. We have other issues to attend to. Please don't make me wait so long next time, will you?" He hung his head low and shuffled toward her. Not too slowly, but slowly enough to make me see that he needed something better: me. As far as I can tell, she has nothing in common with him. She's just there to drain him of his money. If he were mine, i'd wisely manage all of his money because it should be only I that he makes into a gift.  Before they left, I grabbed the woman by her perfect hair and beat the perfect shit out of her. When I was through, all of Starbucks was cheering and she might as well have been dead. They dragged her body into the back room and put her to sleep. I turned to look at Atashi only to see his eyes filled with hurt still. I fell to my knees and started to apologize when he fell with me and wrapped his warm arms around me. We stayed there for what felt like forever. Almost everyone who had come in had filed out by the time he decided to let me go. He got up, bringing me up with him, whispered a thank you and left...

                                                                                                                                                  ...so I continued to sleep in my caverns.
