A Short Story: Like What's Your Zodiac Sign?
I notice Kelcie at her station. I do my best by waving my arms to try and get her attention as well tapping on the window, unfortunately I fail to do so, as I watch her disappear to the back of the restaurant. With a sigh I sit on the curb hoping it won 't take to long for her to finish cleaning. It had to be a good five minutes before I stood up to stretch my legs.

"I 'm sorry if this is confusing, I wanted to tell you I just couldn’t do that to you in front of your friend."
"Oh no it 's all good I 'm just glad you told me before it was to let. You know? But yeah don’t worry bout it." I let a sigh as we said our goodbyes and I looked at Kelcie "I kind of feel bad because he took that way better than expected."
"It 'll be okay, but that’s what happens when you walk up to random females and expect a good outcome." I laughed loudly as we pulled up to my house. Since that day I 've vowed to never lie to a guy but to simply and plainly tell them "I 'm not
