I arrive at the shop with my uniform: my black leggings and a white t-shirt with a message in handwritting. I greet Kris, the closest friend I have in the shop.
"What's up, girl?" She asks with her Brooklyn style.
"I think I had kind of a date" I tell her, more like a question as I start putting everything on its place and I fold some t-shirts. She leaves the clothes she was folding and comes to me, with her widen eyes. I tell her the history, even when customers enter the shop. We seem like some typical shop assistants gossiping, but... Yeah we are totally being that right now.
"So, are you going to call him?" She asks. I shrug "Girl, you don't find a guy who is actually interested in you and not in your freaking body everyday. I think you should take this chance"
"And I think it's better to start going out as friends"
"You mean friends-with-benefits, right?" She asks "I know you and I bet you're going to make out with him soon"
"Not this time... It's not Sam this time"
"Oh my god... Really? I told you to forget about everything with him in relationship to love" I look down.
"Sorry" I say before Mercedes comes to greet me. I shoot her a fake smile, a convincing fake smile. She smiles back and hugs me.
"Hello Rachel, how are you?"
"I'm feeling great!" I exclaim. She smiles "What about you?"
"Well, I'm getting married with Sam!" I continue smiling, as I hug her.
"Oh god, I'm so happy for you two!"
"I was wondering if you'd like to be a bridesmaid" My smile fades and my face expressions reflects my surprise right now. I nod with excitement, although I'm not. I really don't like Mercedes but I'll do my best.
"Of course!" I exclaim "What an honour!" She nods and hugs me. I hug her back. Kris sees this and raises an eyebrow. I give her my 'I'll-tell-you-later' look. She nods and an 'oh' leaves her mouth as she thumbs up. I roll eyes because this hug is starting to make me uncomfortable. I pull away with a fake smile and look set the customers that came into the shop. We continue with our routine like we normally do. We sell the clothes, count the cash, talk with the usual women that come here to buy and that's mostly what we do here. When Mercedes has to leave quickly I start to feel free again.
"Rachel! Before I go, here you have the address of the place where we are looking for your and my dress" My eyes widen and I frown.
"Isn't it too soon?" I say trying to stay calm, with a little of bad acting and a smile. She shakes her head.
"No, we talked about it and since he has a very busy schedule, he only has a free day the next month" She exclaims happily. I nod and she waves.
"The stupid little bitch and fucking dumb model" I murmur loud enough so Kris can hear "Yeah, they'll be really happy together" I say to her, acting without caring at all. She laughs.
"Don't worry babe, you have your fucking hot detective" She tells me winking. I roll eyes as she leaves to take our jackets.
"He may be hot but he's not mine, the only time he'll ever touch my lips already happened, we're just going to be friends" I explain getting out of the shop. As Kris closes it, she laughs.
"Okay, if you wanna lie to yourself, go on" She says to me. I'm not lying to myself, am I?
Hahaha, don't kill me please!
It's short I know, these chapters are always short but I think a short chapter but good one (if this counts as good) is better than a long, crappy chapter.
Anyways, I'm sorry it took me so long to post it. FORGIVE ME.
