"Alone" played inside David's car.
"Are you going through something?" I asked.
He chuckled, "no, I just know how much you like 80s music so I thought you'd like this."
"Aw, you're too sweet."
Later that evening, I went over to David's house.
"What are we doing to do for Halloween?" I asked.
"Uh, I guess whatever you want."
"Can we dress up together?"
"How about Harley Quinn and the Joker?"
"Okay, let's do it, we can go shopping for our costumes soon."
"Yay! I can't wait!"
I started looking online for costumes while he played on his xbox.
"What about this one?" I showed him some cute outfits from Suicide Squad.
"I think we should go with that one since that's the movie we saw on our first date."
I blushed that he still remembered, but then again, it happened about a month ago so how could he forget?
The next evening David had to work again. My mom drove me down to Johnny's so that I could go surprise him.
I walked up to the counter, "Ethan?!"
"Oh, Alina, hi."
"What are you doing here?" I asked.
"Uh, I work here?"
I saw a fidget spinner spinning on the counter right next to where he was standing.
"Did you get expelled?"
"No, I got suspended," his face turned red, "but I'll be back next semester."
"Okay," I said, looking around, "is David back there somewhere?"
"Uh he's probably taking a shit or something, he's been in the bathroom for like 20 minutes."
"Okay, I'll wait," I said and I sat down.
He came out of the bathroom.
"Oh hey babe, I wasn't expecting you today," he said.
"Are you okay? You were in there for a while," I said.
His face turned red and his voice got quieter, "I have a stomach ache, if you get what I mean."
"You poor thing, well I hope you're doing okay, I just came by to buy some breadsticks."
"Okay let me get you those," he said, "I would give them to you for free but I'm not a manager so I can't really do that."
