The bell to my grandfathers old shop rang and I looked up from my magazine, "Welcome to Sugar Suga- whoa what happened to your face?"
A dark haired man in worn black jeans spat on my perfectly polished cotton candy floor. "shut up and let me use the back room."
I shrugged, staring at the light purple tile he spat on, "Kay but was there really a need to spit on my floor? this is a candy shop you know. Cant have bloody spit in the chocolate."
If looks could kill I would be melted into a rainbow puddle.
He jumped behind the counter and stormed into the back room, "tell anyone here and I'll fucking kill you."
I snorted, "what are you going to do gag me with your lolly pop?"
He froze in the doorway for a moment before slamming the door behind him.
What a fun guy.
I looked up at the bell ringing again, "Hello! welcome to Sugar-Sugar my names Lola and I'll be happy to make any non sexual sweet dreams come true!"
I love when there are no kids in the store and I can ad-lib the greeting
A group of crude looking men stared at me for a long moment, "have you seen a beaten up pretty boy around here?"
I pointed out the door, "pretty sure I saw him pass by, why?"
They left without answering my question and I shrugged, going back to my magazine, "Yo! pretty boy back there buy some candy will you? its the least you can do after I kept you from getting shot in the face!"
