My morning started out with Brynn bringing me a cup of coffee. She didn't come in, just lingered at the door for a minute. I'm still not one hundred percent sure I can hang out with her since I'm almost positive her and Seth have slept together, but I could've kissed her for the caffeine.

I added a coffee pot to my list of must haves afterward. With a cup of coffee fueling my system I get dressed and head out for another round of shopping. I buy a set of plates, cups, utensils, a big set of bath towels, rags, and hand towels. Tea towels, kitchen rags, dish soap, a trash can, a bag of pods that go in the dishwasher, spatulas, a pot and pan set, a mop, mop bucket, a broom and floor cleaner and a ton of other random stuff I stumble upon along the way. I almost hit the ground at the total but these are things I have to have.

A couple hours later and I'm in the same furniture warehouse Seth brought me to yesterday, standing in front of wardrobes when I realize these are much bigger than I originally thought, there's no way this is going in Taylor's Honda. My heart hammers in my chest as I retrieve my phone from my purse and call Seth.

"Hey Babe, what's up?" He answers immediately.

He didn't call me babe all day yesterday, which really has to be a record for him, but I'm so glad he's back to it today. It just feels more like the Seth I know.

"Would Dawson let you borrow his truck again?" I ask, biting my lip.

"Of course, when do you need it?"

Yeah, normal people like a little more notice than this.

"Um, right now or later if you're busy?" I mutter.

He chuckles. "Okay, give me ten minutes. Are you at home?"

"Uh, I'm actually at the furniture warehouse store looking at wardrobes but I'm in Taylor's car so I'll go home and unload the stuff I bought and wait for you there." I reply, already walking toward the door.

"Okay, see you soon."

I can't help but facepalm after dropping my phone into my purse. I really hate feeling like an idiot just by talking to someone, especially Seth. I don't know whats wrong with me. I quickly drive home and unload Taylor's car, once I'm done I take a seat on the floor in the hall right outside my apartment. I pull my phone back out and get lost in Sudoku.

"Boo." Seth says in my ear five minutes later but I don't jump.

I could already tell it was him without looking away from my phone to know who was approaching. I tuck the device into my purse and look up at him. He's dressed in all black: black basketball shorts, a black dri-fit shirt, and black sneakers. He's even wearing a backwards black cap that covers up his messy blonde hair and gives him a sporty look.

Wow, I like sporty Seth.

He offers me his hand and I take it, letting him pull me up from the floor. His thumb rubs across the top of my hand before releasing it, giving me a dimpled smile.
