The streets were starting to become more active as Caleb and I made our way to the Café. Cars whizzed by the numerous crowds of people walking around us. The sun had just about made its way to the mid-sky.
The Café was only about ten minutes away. I made sure not to talk to Jay, I wouldn't want anyone around me to think I was out of it. Either way, some people were eyeing me weirdly because Jay was still chirping whilst being on my shoulder.
I heard Caleb groan irritably. "Can't that bird ever shut up?!?"
Can't humans like you ever shut up. No? Well then I won't either.
I giggled. Sometimes having a sassy bird with you can be fun.
I casted a side glance at Caleb to see a puzzled expression. "What's so funny?"
I smiled. "Oh nothing."
He narrowed his eyes at me, but I looked away, smiling innocently. I saw him roll his eyes and him turning away.
After awhile, I felt someone's eyes on me. Confused, I turned to my side to see Caleb staring at me. He blushed a light pink and instantly smirked.
I slightly raised an eyebrow. "What are you staring at?"
"Oh nothing," he mocked.
I punched his arm lightly. "Stop copying me." I narrowed my eyes at him.
In a high pitched voice he said, "Stop copying me."
"Why you—My voice doesn't sound like that!" I exclaimed, crossing my arms.
"My voice doesn't sound like that!" He continued.
"You know what?" I sighed. "I give up. I'm just not gonna talk anymore."
Caleb frowned slightly, but then smirked again. "Fine. I'll just make you talk."
I gave him a questioning look. He rubbed his hands evilly, his smirk growing wider by the minute. I strayed away from him a bit, afraid of his intentions.
What is he planning?
My thoughts questioned.
He spoke up with a teasing voice, "C'mon Angie, if you don't talk now, you'll regret it." When I didn't talk, he tensed his legs. "All right, have it your way, but you better run before I catch ya."
He pounced forward and held out his arms, ready to grab me. I yelped and instantly ran. I felt Jay's grip on my shoulder tighten as I swerved through the crowds of people.
I glanced back to see Caleb right on my tail. As we ran, some people stopped to gawk at us. All the while, I smiled and giggled happily. Though Caleb could be annoying sometimes, I've never seen this side of him.
I've never seen him give out a hearty smile. He's a big flirt, but he's never played around to lighten a mood. I'll admit, our little cat and mouse game was pretty fun.
