Its been a little while but finally had a chance to write up an interesting chapter!
Days went by fast. At first I hadn't been sure of what was going on around me. I would serve drinks to customers, linger a bit to talk to clients but the majority of my time was spent standing by the bar waiting for drinks to be made and waiting. After the night was over I would wait for Bang, but only once since the agreed deal did I actually see him. He had come up to me pulled me towards the rooms and had his way with my body.
I was frustrated to say the least. He had made that declaration but barely jumped on it. If he was distancing himself from me, I had no clue why.
It was saturday and I was meeting whats-his-name for coffee.
I was sitting at the table in a small coffee shop when I saw the guy walk in. My brain was still trying to remember his name.
“hey Clara!” he waved to me and came and sat down. “you didn't wait long did you?” he asked
“No, just got my coffee” I said holding onto my cup. He pouted.
“you didn't get me one?” he asked and I shrugged.
“I didn't know what you wanted” I said simply. “why don't you go order” I indicated the front registers.
“alright I'll be right back” he said getting up.
He ordered and came back.
“How's your job going for you?” he asked.
“Not bad. I work a lot but I'm not making as much as I thought” I shrugged.
“Your working with Rose right? She makes damn good money for tuition, how come you don't?” he tilted his head and I laughed.
“cause she is doing more than I am at the place. Im just serving drinks” I said
“I thought you were a bartender” he shook his head, shaggy hair whipping around his head
“Not there yet. Though the bartender makes good tips” shrugged. “How is your job going?” I asked.
“Not bad. I work late nights now, closing up the bar.” he said.
“I thought you worked at a restaurant?” I remembered that at least. Small victory. Really though why couldn't I remember his name
“Mark” someone called out and he got up.
Ha! Mark that was it! Bless coffee shops using names to call out orders.
Mark came back with a tall cup in front of him.
“dark roast, I like it strong” he grinned taking a sip.
“hmm, on those short sleep hours I bet” I chuckled.
“but yea, you know I work in the bar at the resturant” he said. “we've been short staffed since people went home for summer though, so its hard” he brightened “you should apply!” he added.
“I'll think on it” I nodded absent minded.
The people who just walked in caught my eye.
Bang and some asian women full of tattoos walked in. They were chatting away. Even as I caught Bangs eye he didn't make any indication that he knew me.
Mark was talking, having a one sided conversation as I watched the 2 order and move to a table close by to the windows. If I wasn't mistaken, Bang was ignoring me.
“So, do you know him? He looks like the guy who came into the library to talk to you” he said.
“No I dont” I said a little loud enough that I saw Bang look over at me. A questioning look crossed his face but he went back to talking to the women.
I spent the next half hour talking to mark, got the restaurant name so I could apply to be a bartender there. Than I left.
I made a detour to work by dropping by Cross Line restaurant to fill out an application before heading into work.
When I got to work That same women was there, it was hard to not recognize her with all those tattoos she had.
“Clara there you are!” Pat called from behind the bar.
“hi pat” I greeted him.
“Its going to be a slow night tonight I heard” he said
“Oh really?” I perked up than. “Hey than can I ask a favor?”
“No you cant leave early” he said dead pan which made me laugh.
“No, actually I was wondering if you could teach me a little on how to make cocktails?” I batted my eyes which made him laugh.
“Yea sure” he nodded.
“Sweet” I grinned.
“So who is the girl over there?” I asked leaning in.
“Oh Im not sure, nadia?” Pat scratched his head he snapped his fingers “Natasha” pat grinned.
“Oh, nice name” I said sullenly.
She was really pretty, covered in tats it added an extra layer of wild and adventurous that I would never be able to afford.
I turned back to Pat and grinned.
“So mixing drinks you'll teach me right?” I asked making him laugh.
“Yea, no problem “ he said.
Busy with watching Pat, a while later I saw Bang come out and go to Natasha. He shot me a quizzical look behind the bar but didnt say anything to me. Bang wrapped an arm around the woman's shoulders and ushered her in back.
“whatever, he can just go and do whatever” I grumbled under my breath.
“what was that?” Pat asked.
“Nothing” I grumbled
“okay, than take this drinks to table 5” he said putting the 4 drinks we just made on a tray and handing it to me.
Okay Im going to be sweet and have this chapter be extra long and extra lol
I had worked all night and when the end of the night came I went home.
Screw Bang! I may have been infatuated but I didn't need to be that girl, the one that lingers when the guy is no longer interested.
“Talk about mixed signals” Rose said from the couch.
“Damn right” I grumbled.
“I mean how do you know when he wouldn't want to go further?” Rose said sighing.
“He should have kept it to himself” I nodded.
“Damn right! Well I guess I should have seen it coming. I mean he has backpack that is identical to my handbag” Rose said
“what? He does?” I was confused.
“He was gay! I thought he wanted to be more than friends” she sighed.
“Bang is definitely not gay!” I shook my head.
. . . There was a long silence.
“Who is Bang?” Rose asked. I stared. Crap! The situation had sounded so similar I had compared it to Bang.
“Uh, a guy I met” I said.
“And did you Bang him? Is that why you call him Bang?” she jumped on the name.
“No, he told me to call him that” I said wincing. Technically he did.
“Spill” She said.
I hedged. I gave bare facts. I met him at a party, we did it a few times, he confessed and now he was ignoring me.
“Did he give you the speech? This is complicated but I still want you. This can't happen but let's try and see.” Rose was deadpan
“kind of” I nodded
“He's a player. He's done with you” she stated nonchalantly. “To take the edge off the sting you could always fuck a guy at the club, or hey go to Top and see if he's interested. He never turns it down” she said.
The comment was supposed to help, but it didn't, it made it worse.
“Can I ask you a favor.” I said.
“sure, what's up” she asked “but no Im not setting you up with anyone” she added.
“No no, so I got an interview at a restaurant and I think I'm going to work there instead. If I write up a resignation letter can you drop it off to Top for me?” I asked.
“I thought you really liked the job and wanted to continue” she was alert now
“I don't, but things got complicated. You know me, I take easy and straightforward. I don't do complicated” I shrugged.
“okay” she gave me a skeptical look. “was it someone at the club?” she asked.
“kind of” i winced. The look i gave her must have been enough
“enough said. I'll give your notice letter tonight” she nodded.
Sooo I made it a little more interesting lol. And if I know Babys, you know Yongguks family right right. lol yea I gave a big hint there.
Hopefully with more time to do things I can write a little more and update a little more too. (granted the next chapter Im writing I think is 'Can you see us' story)
Fam tag! For everything!
