Chapter 5: The Plans
“Right or left?” John asked as we got close to my apartment.
“Right.” I said as he quickly turned right.
“Ok. There you go……” John said as he parked.
“Thanks.” I said about to get out.
He gently grabbed my arm right above my elbow.
“Aileen I want you to know I’m here too…..if you ever need me.” He said smiling slightly.
“Ok, thanks John.” I said walking out of the car and up the stairs to the front door of the apartment.
I turned around to wave and he was smiling at me.
I waved and he did to.
“You be careful alright???” John yelled.
I nodded and forced a smile. He smiled back and I went inside.
I shut the door then went up to my apartment.
I plopped down face first on my bed and cried.
“Are you watching me NOW?!?!!? You crazy stalker just leave me alone!!!!!!!!!!!!” I yelled.
I sat on my bed and thought.
That’s when I got the idea.
Wait do I even have the money for that????
I opened up my laptop and looked into my bank account once I was online.
I had enough.
“I guess I will move.” I said to myself.
Somewhere far away but not too far away because I want to keep my job.
I picked up the phone so I could call Mr. Hutterman.
I dialed in his number.
“Hello? Who is this?” He asked.
“Aileen. I wanted to tell you that I’m moving….”
“You’re quitting? Please don’t quit you’re the best person here.” He said.
“Oh, no Sir I’m not quitting I wanted to ask you if I could have a couple days off so I could start packing.” I explained.
“Oh,……well…….yes. How many days do you think you’ll be off?” He asked.
“2 or 3 days maybe just two days.” I said.
“Ok, I can get Velma to fill in for you.” He said.
“Thanks so much Mr. Hutterman.” I said.
“Anytime.” He said.
“Well, see you in a few days.” I said.
“Ok. Bye.” He said hanging up.
“Bye.” I replied.
After I was done calling him and had hung up the phone I plopped backwards from a sitting position into lying down.
I still had to get boxes.
I sat back up and got my phone.
I dialedGary’s number.
“Hey,GaryI was wondering if you have a car I could borrow.” I said.
He not only stayed up all night and experimented on things he also worked as a mechanic at Harry’sAuto Place, and bought cars from junk yards and fixed them at his own home.
“Uh, hmmm….. I have a red 1962 Chevy Corvair, and a clunker truck.” He said as I interrupted him.
“I don’t know much about cars but a clunker truck is ages old right?” I asked.
“Yeah, those cars could be worth something.” He said.
“I’ll just take the Chevy. Does it work good?” I asked.
“Aileen, I fixed it right?........ Yes it works.” He said.
“Cool I’ll be there to pick it up in a little bit.” I said.
“How are you gonna get here without a vehicle?” He asked.
“I can ride my bike.” I said.
“How are you gonna get the bike back?” He asked.
“Oh I didn’t think of that.” I said chuckling.
“Heh-heh I’ll just drive it there.” He said.
“Ok, but wait……..how are you gonna get back to your house???” I asked laughing.
“Oh, right. Hmmmm…..”
“I’ll just call a cab.” I suggested.
“Ok, that sounds better than anything else we’ve come up with.” He said.
“Yeah.” I answered.
“See you in a bit.” He said.
“Ok, bye.” I said.
“Bye.” He replied before hanging up.
I slipped clean clothes on and my black flats.
I put my cell phone in my back pocket and my keys to the apartment and headed out the door.
I locked up and left the apartment and down the long staircase once again.
I called a cab again...
I felt like everyday was déjà vu. There was never anything different.
I sat down in the grass and waited for the cab driver to come.
5 minutes later the cab driver drove right in front of the apartment complex.
I took my time as I stood up.
I slowly got inside the car and told the cab driver where I was going.
He started the car.
I just sat in the back seat and cried.
Our song was on the radio. Well the one Caleb would sing me after saving my life.
Hero from Enrique Iglesias.
I know it sounds stupid and funny, but it was so romantic he would sing it to me in Spanish or English he would let me pick.
Most of the time I picked Spanish I didn’t know what he was saying some of the time but it was the most romantic thing ever.
I missed him a lot.
Soon he was atGary’s house. I thanked him, paid him, and got out and walked toGary’s front door.
“Coming!!!” He yelled.
“Hey I said I’m coming!” He yelled angrily.
Then he opened the door and saw me.
