We sat in the restaurant and looked at the menu. It was a bit quiet but we just got here. "So what do you feel like eating?" He asked peering from the menu.
I shrugged my shoulders. "I've never eaten here before so I don't know anything here that's good."
"How bout I order for you. I promise you will like it," he said smiling at me.
He has such a genuine smile and I couldn't help but smile right back at nodded my head giving him his answer. "Alright then." Just as he placed his menu down the waitress came to the table.
"Hey Joe! Great to see you back again. How ya been cutie?" The waitress asked.
I squirmed in my seat as the two talked. She was literally perfect.
Even a blind man could see that she liked him.
Well with the way she acting she might as well be his girlfriend. I just sat there awkwardly watching them catchup. Her screeching laughs hurting my ears.
I can't feel a bit of hurt at the twos interaction.
It's like I wasn't even here.
Completely ignored and discarded. Maybe I am exaggerating but right now I don't feel as up to this meal.
I got up and excused myself from the table and walked to the bathroom. I caught a quick glance from Joe and could tell that he was worried about me sudden departure.
After going into the bathroom and locking myself into the stall a leaned back against the door sighing.
Why the hell did I even agree to come here?
What am I doing here?
Why do I feel this way?
I just feel overwhelmed with literally nothing and just want to cry.
Why am I crying? I honestly don't know.
Maybe I should just go home. After doing nothing but stare at the wall above the toilet I decided to tell Joe that I want to go home. I left the stall washed my hands a freshened up a bit. I went to open the door and was startled when I saw Joe about to come in.
He looked relieved to seem me as he released a breath of air.
"Hey I was worried about you. You've been in there for a long time," he asked taking in my appearance.
"Oh I'm sorry," I said softly.
"Well um, the food is ready," he said giving me a small smile.
I nodded my head and started walking to the table with him right behind me. I took my seat and he sat down in front of me watching me carefully. I guess since the food is here I will sit here and eat with him.
I don't want to make him feel bad to just leave all of sudden. I looked at my plate and started eating it slowly.
I looked up and saw him looking at me expectantly. "What?"
"What do you think of the meal?" he asked with anticipation in his eyes.
To be honest I'm not really paying attention to the food. I just want this to be over with to and go home.
"I uh, it's okay." I said looking back down to my food and eating.
I heard him sigh, "I'm sorry." I furrowed my eyes and looked at him.
"I'm sorry. She came here and she basically wanted to play catch up or whatever since I haven't been here in a while. I shouldn't have let that happen and I'm sorry." I looked at him and he seemed to mean it.
