I went into work the next day a little late. I went to the back and changed into the black shirt and green apron.

"Where were you?" Rusty asked.

"I had to fill out some paperwork for Max's school," I said. "And I slept in a little bit."

"Well it is about DAMN time," he said.

"What?" I asked.

"You're seventeen years old and getting up at four o'clock on the morning," he said. "I was worried about you."

I rolled my eyes.

"You know that I need the money," I said.

"So Kyle stopped in yesterday," he said.

"What'd he say?" I groaned.

"He said that you had a particular new Chemistry partner that was easy on the eyes," he said.

"Oh dear lord, not you too!" I said. "I'm almost positive that he's a jerk."

"What? Blame Kyle," he said. I laughed.

"Oh don't worry, I'll yell at him later," I said.

"Good," he said. "Just don't kill him. He's my nephew."

I went out to the counter to help out Danny, a pimple faced sixteen year old who I worked with.

"Welcome to Starbucks, how may I help you?" I asked the first customer.

Customers came and went, and about two hours into my shift, I saw someone that I wasn't expecting.

"Kyle? What are you doing here?" I asked.

"What? Am I not allowed to visit my little teddy bear?" he asked.

We had a little game that we liked to play. We had to call each other by boyfriend/girlfriend pet names. You couldn't repeat a name, and whoever either repeated or didn't use one lost. I was the reigning champion.

"Yeah, well not when your little strawberry shortcake is a bit pissed off," I said.

"Aw, snookums!" he protested.

"I'm sorry, sugar plum, but you were bad and told Rusty about my Chemistry partner, and now he thinks I have a boy in my life," I said.

"Babelicious, your sugar plum didn't know any better! And he thought that it would be hilarious!" he said.

"Hilarious for who sweetie pie?" I asked.
