There is no way he would agree, right? I’m sure he would refuse it. "I believe he has somewhere to go. Right, Eion?" I spoke up, joining in their conversation.
He paused for a moment before smirking. "I think not. I’m free today." He said this as he got out of his car. With my eyes, I threw daggers at him. Why is he not cooperating? Gosh, I was even helping me to get out of this situation.
Mom smiled at that and motioned him inside. "Welcome to our humble abode; please feel free to make yourself at home."Nathan jumped and grabbed Eion's hands after remaining silent the entire time. I exclaimed, looking at Eion's expression, who was staring at Nathan without a smile.
Nathan smiled at him "Can me and Eionny play, Mom? I've always wished for an older sibling!"
Nathan caught my eye, checking to see if it was alright with me. Wait, why is my family becoming so close to that robot?
"No, honey, you can play with him next time. Snow and Eion are g
"You said you'd do anything I said last time, right?" He responded. Blinking at him, I tried to recollect my memories, then remember them. Oh right, that night where I practically begged him not to fire me but in the end, look at me now. I drew my gaze away from him. "I assumed you didn't agree? Also, after that time, didn’t I leave my job?" He paused typing as he raised his head and stared at me "But you're now employed in this store. My shop. That is to say, I accepted your proposal." I snorted. "What? That agreement is not valid anymore, you hear me?" I clarified, breathing in and out to relax. I notice that today I'm easily irritated. Well, I’m aware that I have always been a bit short-tempered however, my hormones have
Stupid? So that's how he will call me huh.. "What robot?" I said, calling him with the nickname I made. I didn't bother to smile, simply since his expression is expressionless, I feel like my fake cheerfulness can't handle it. "My table got in a mess. Please clean it," He said in a monotone voice before leaving. I grab the cleaning towel and spray to do what he asked, before heading to his table. "Clean it faster, I have a lot more to do," he said. I scoffed at that. I faced him and mockingly smiled, "Of course, sir," With that, I started to pile the cups and tissues there, the strawberry pink ice cream was sprawled all over the table so just to mock him more, I slowly wiped it, then turned to look at my back to catch a glimpse of him standing away from the table, clenching his fist and staring straight at me. Good. He's annoyed. Satisfied at his reaction, I finally finished the remaining job and said, "All done, sir. You can now-" I can't fin
My mom? When did mom tell Eion that? Are they messaging each other or anything? "You don't have to, robot." I said, wanting to leave here but he still persisted, "Why do you keep on calling me that?" I crossed my arms in front of me, clutching my backpack, "As I said, you're not even showing any emotion besides glaring and scowling that makes you unapproachable. That's the impression you left me." He just scoffed at that. Glancing around, he changed the topic, "It's dangerous at night." "I'll give you a ride." Dangerous? For all I know, he's more dangerous than any squad here. When he knew I still wouldn’t budge, he said, "Fine. Freeze to death," He revved the engi
"Here," I said, handing a paper bag that has Eion's jacket to him in his office the moment I arrived before my shift. Emma was still here since it’s still her shirt. I actually drove here earlier to get his jacket, wash and dry it so that I could return it soon enough, and got in the store again. Good thing it dried enough for me to give it back to him now. He looked at me, then to the paper bag on my hands before asking, "What's that?" "Uhmm… your jacket?" Did he forget about it soon? Yesterday he was looking for it."Keep it." He said, "I don't want it anymore." I looked at him carefully, not sure if I heard him right. He even came back last night to get the jacket from me, right? And now that I am giving it to him, he doesn’t want it anymore. That’s strange. "Okay? I’ll just leave it here then. Thank you again for last night, Eion." I just left the paper bag by the door and returned to the counter. Guess he’ll just get that later. Changi
It has been days, and Eion's two friends kept on returning to the shop ever since that day. "Hey Snow!" Leroy booms as soon as he enters the shop. Yes, they had frequently visited the store that I call them by their names now. A few customers' heads turned around but returned to chattering with each other. "I'll have the same as usual," he said. I don't know how or when we really did get close enough to the point that he just barges in and yells my name loudly, but it’s fine for me, I guess. "Me too, the usual please, and her number of course." Dax winked, offering me a flirty smile that I promptly rolled my eyes at. And I don't know how or when we really did we got close enough to the point that Dax just flirts at me so casually.
I looked at the boy, whom I now know as Caleb, “Yes.” He answered, licking at his ice cream. “Don’t do this next time. Aunt Anna is looking for you, she’s worried," he said coolly. “You know each other?” I asked Eion, to which he ignored as he picked up the little kid in his arms. Now that they are both beside each other, I had a quick overlook. They have both green eyes, but their attitudes were miles apart. Now that I think about it, the little kid looks familiar. Oh right! He was one of the kids playing with Nathan at Aunt Maggie's. Maybe he is Eion’s brother? Or cousin? "Do you know each other? Is she your girlfriend? She's very pretty," Caleb asked Eion. I almost gagged at that. Him? My boyfriend?
Whoa! I smell something fishy here, I'd have to ask her about it later... Hannah and I go back to the garden once they leave, each one of us holding a glass of apple juice. "So, what's with you and Leroy?" I constantly asked once we were away from them. Hannah almost chokes on her drink, blushing yet again before she answers, "He's just a friend." "Yeah, sure. I bet that's why you were blushing back then and even now." Her eyes widened at that and her hand shot up to her warm cheeks. Hah! Gotcha! "Ugh! Fine!" She groans when I perk an eyebrow at her silence. "I...
I looked behind me. Ah, the robot, yet again with his criticism. What's with him today? To think I was actually starting to assume that he was manageable enough to handle these days. Guess I was wrong. Or was it one of his mood swings again? Whatever. I sighed, before retorting sassily, "Oh great. And what color does your highness think is best?" "Blue." Eion the robot shrugged. “And why are you even here? Were you sick yesterday?” "I just recovered today. And you're an expert at picking colors, huh?" I asked, now irritated at him. He scoffed, "I was just saying what I thought was best..." "Then go ahead and tell it to Aunt Maggie. My choice of color is just an opinion. You're making it a big deal." I scowled at him,
