I am waiting for her at the café, where we always meet, but this time, I am alone with only a cup of coffee for company.
“Why isn’t she here?” I wonder
Then I see her walking from the arm of Satoshi, the new manager, who had been sent from Tokyo to be my new boss.
“Damn him” I said to no one “He had stolen my girl already, and he hasn’t even been here a week”
“This job will be the death of me” I think “Janine, the only good thing that has happened to me since…Well, since that happened….I can’t even bring myself to say it…but now Janine is gone, too and without her, I don’t think is a good idea to stay here another day. I might as well pack my things and leave town tonight.
I’m so lucky, Mr. Satoshi is walking me home. After that awful fall, I broke the heel of my shoe and I can’t let Ryan see me this way. Luckily our date is tomorrow night. Everything will be better then.
