As she put the cleaning supplies away, she took a quick glance at the money he held in his hand and then an even faster one at his face. It was then when he saw the fear in her eyes. He watched her even more closely. Her movements as smooth as they were was short and choppy, as if her whole body was tightly wound up. She was afraid. Again another flash of her eyes. He turned to look at his best friend standing behind him. Danny was in the same bar fight as he was in and had half the cuts and developing bruises as he had. It was not the first time Jake wondered if Danny was truly the better fighter.
As she handed him his change back, he grabbed her hand in his. “My name is Jake.” He paused waiting for her to see him. Her eyes flashed to his hand, face, and then to Danny. “Thank you for shopping at Marley’s, please come again.” She said confidently as she gently tugged on her hand. When he didn’t let go she took another glance at his face. Great he had her attention.
“I am going to go get cleaned up, then come back to ask you out on a date.” He paused as he watched as another cashier approach them. He let go of her hand as she began to shake her head no. He understood her reluctance. If a bloody biker asked threaten to come ask him on a date he would be fearful too.
The other cashier, named Yolanda, had reached them by now. With a knowing smile and none of the shyness Ann was showing, she told him all he needed to know. Yolanda and Ann were best friends. Ann, as he expected,was extremely shy. Yolanda thought Ann needed to get out more. In fact, Yolanda was determined to get her out more. The most important thing he learned was that they would be meeting Yolanda’s husband at the Pancake palace in three hours.
As Jake and Danny walked away, he took a glance back. Ann was looking at Yolanda in disbelief, Yolanda still had the smile knowing smile on her face. Jake smiled and could not believe his luck. He could not help but notice that Ann was looking at him. His smile turned into a full blown grin. Ann and his future was looking up.
