The Dead Face Girl (Part 12)

On Saturday, I woke up to my phone beeping at me. I glanced at my clock. It was 7:28. I moaned and checked my phone to see why it woke my up at 7:30 on a Saturday. It was Ben. He had texted me. I’m sure that he knew that I was still sleeping; he was just trying to get back at me for saying yes.

I looked at the message.

Ben:  Meet me at the park at 1:30. You wanted a date, you got a date.
Me:  And you felt it necessary to tell me this at 7:30, six hours before hand?!?!

I rolled out of bed and stumbled into the shower. I forgot that the water needs
time to heat up, and just stepped right into it. That sure woke me up.
While I was waiting for the shower to warm up, I got another text from Ben.

Ben:  Like I said, you wanted a date, you got a date. Are you nervous? :P

I shook my head.

Me:  I’m standing here naked, waiting for my shower to heat up. I’m not going to answer that question.

Ben’s reply came immediately.

Ben:  Oh, god. Thanks for that image.
Me:  No problem.

After I got out of the shower, I looked through my cloths, trying to decide what to wear. I wanted to make this as horrifying for Ben as possible.

I finally chose a pair of dark blue boot-cut jeans, and an incredibly low-cut shirt that was grey and had a blue swirly design on it.
I pulled on my green All Stars and a black sweatshirt, and stepped outside.

It was freezing.

I stuck my hands in my pockets and pulled up my hood. The park was about a mile from my house. This was going to be a cold walk.

It was, but I enjoyed it. I like walking in the cold every now and then. But when I finally reached the park I was freezing. I stepped into a little coffee house and sat down. I took my jacket off and dropped it on the table. I went up to the counter and ordered a hot chocolate. As I was waiting, I looked around the shop. In the corner there was a man with a long olive coat on and tattered jeans. On the other side of the room was a woman with two screaming kids. Right in the middle of it all sat a girl typing away at a green laptop. She looked stressed out.

My hot chocolate came. I went and sat down. There was a tinkling sound as the door opened. Guess who walked in?
