"I live a few doors down."
"Oh really, that's what's up", was really all I can say. I got out the car and made my way to the house.
"If you want I can give you a ride to work tomorrow?", she said with a little smile.
"Ummm sure why not. It'll be easier for me."
"Great. My house is red with the porch swing.", she said while pointing.
I looked over and saw the porch swing and nodded.
"I'll see you in the morning at 6:15am.", she said and drove off.
I walk into the house strip out of my work clothes and took a long hot shower. Thinking about my first day at work. Everyone there is pretty cool I guess. I start to think of Chef. She really is pretty. I look at the clock and decide to go to sleep early.
Beep Beep Beep
I turn off my alarm and go to the bathroom to do my duties. I get dressed and make my way out the door. As I'm making my way to the train station I remember the Chef saying she'll give me a ride to work. I power walk back and go right to where she said she lives.
I ring the bell twice and wait patiently for her to answer.
"I'm coming hold on", I hear her say. She opens the door and she looks completely different from yesterday. Her hair is down and she is wearing a black tank top with jeans that shows off her thick thighs and wide hips.
"Michael? Are you coming", she said with a little smile. She had her bag and car keys in hand.
"Sorry..yeah I'm ready"
For the past 3 weeks she gave me a ride to work and back home. I asked her plenty of times if she needed gas money and it will always be the same.
"Michael for the hundredth time no, I don't need gas money. I'll just take it out your check." I looked at her like she was crazy and saw a smile creep on her face.
"I'm just kidding. No need for that facial expression."
"My bad. You just caught me off guard thats all."
"I'm not real good with jokes so that's all I could think of.", she chuckled.
We pulled up in front of my house and I got out of the car. "Same time tomorrow Chef?", I asked as I bent down to see her. "You know it Mike.", she said with a smile and pulled off. I stand on the step to make sure she gets in the house safely. She waves and disappears into the house.
I turn to see who called me. "Hey man what's up with you?" It was one of they guys that use to live here.
"I'm good man. Finally got a job and a place. It's small but it's home.", he said with a chuckle. "That's great man. Real great. I can't wait to get the hell out of here."
"You'll be out soon man just chill and do what you suppose to that's all. Well I gotta go. See you round man." We shook hands and went our separate ways.
I was getting out the shower and couldn't help but think about Katrina. I know she's my boss but I feel like we getting close. Maybe I'll ask to take her to the movies or out for coffee or something. I don't know if it's weird or not but I can't stop thinking about her. Tomorrow on the way home from work I'll ask her.
