    “Boulder?” he almost seemed to yell.copyright protection49PENANAX3lGDLJgTg

              “Colorado, by the way, if you didn’t know the state either.”copyright protection49PENANAd6PHBRcTZq

              What happened to him last night? Last night was a puzzle, and he had too many missing pieces to put it all together. “How in the hell did I get here in this hippy infested land?”copyright protection49PENANAUCVgn6KWOy

    “How should I know?” she laughed. But she stopped and asked herself, “Infested land?”copyright protection49PENANAjLCFsfrcvk

    He went on, worrying about his problems. “I was in downtown Denver last night! Where the hell . . . No how the hell?” He ranted on, his sentences not making sense anymore. She was studying him like an old book at a yard sale.copyright protection49PENANAsJqiq2aDW9

    “What’s wrong with Boulder?” she asked, not seeming too offended.copyright protection49PENANA3RLZ785S5T

    “Crazy damn hippies here, that’s what’s wrong. I need to get home.”copyright protection49PENANAroF348ivkO

“So, why don’t you call someone up to get you out of this, what was that, ‘infested hippie land’,” she mocked him, starting to walk pass him.copyright protection49PENANAQNxg5XjfAf

“I don’t have anyone,” he blurted out.copyright protection49PENANApE6aEejK6o

She stopped, looking ahead for a few seconds before turning back around at the poor sight of him. “What?”copyright protection49PENANAExNjARsTnM

He shook his head. “I mean, I don’t  . . . . I meant to say, I don’t have a cell phone. You know, someone stole it.”copyright protection49PENANAHdzeuFcNVN

If you were to look in her eyes, you could see the thoughts spinning around in her head. Ethan even felt a little bit nervous with her staring. Finally she smiled. “I have a cell phone you can use if you want. It’s dead, but I’m going to the Laughing Cow to charge it up.”copyright protection49PENANA3ksav6oOQv

    “I’m sorry, the what?” Ethan asked, wrinkling his nose.copyright protection49PENANAdu20ODSgxf

    “It’s not a real cow, though that would be a sight to see a real laughing cow. It’s just a coffee shop, though. They have fried chicken lattes. What do you think of that? I wouldn’t personally try it, and in a town that’s half vegan, I don’t know how they stand in business. But they have vegan cookies. Do you like vegan cookies? It’s gluten free too, and no nuts. . . .”copyright protection49PENANA3etDtXiGKe

  She was still talking. Ethan turned around, looking up and down the sidewalk, looking for a hiding camera, thinking that this is a prank. He cut her off, “Are you playing with me right now?”copyright protection49PENANAtOyWY42nST

    “No, it’s real. I know it’s strange but-“copyright protection49PENANAS6oV7czZt6

    He crossed his arms and narrowed his eyebrows. “Did Tom set you up?”copyright protection49PENANAfwlIaPGsvr

    She gave a long blink. “Who?”copyright protection49PENANAGZffVejYBc

    “Like, someone pulling a prank on me right now? Robert? Jim? Those guys at work, are they doing this to me?” he asked. He was getting red in the face. Her big eyes showed him that she had no idea what he was talking about.copyright protection49PENANARuigpptYpX

    Many moments had passed by when she finally spoke. “They do have fried chicken lattes,” she said in a soft and tiny voice. “That’s not a prank. I can go show you.”copyright protection49PENANA5FtqnEf36K

    Ethan rolled his eyes. It didn’t seem like this was a prank after all. “It seems like a type of Boulder thing, doesn’t it. Someone high must have made that shit up. I’ve never heard of it.”copyright protection49PENANAuNKK3FYmEA

    She smiled, and for some reason, he thought it was a stunning smile. “Well, you’ll never forget it. They have great coffee there, without chicken in it. If you’re having trouble with a hangover, it will help you out big time. You can use my phone if you feel like it.”copyright protection49PENANAzw5RMuhftH

     Ethan almost laughed to himself. Didn’t know either to go with the girl or not.  He thought maybe finding someone else that was normal.copyright protection49PENANAcymGYKkeOr

He got a good look at her. She was slim, average height, but her blue skirt made her look slightly stocky. Her Mary Janes shoes looked odd on her; she seemed like a big child. Her t-shirt was either a band or TV show shirt. He couldn’t tell.copyright protection49PENANAYjfJ3io2E2

 The bag had that big fat yellow Buddha on it. She must have done that yoga shit or something. He knew she would probably be one of the nicer ordinary people in this town.copyright protection49PENANADezI6ldnBH

    “Sure.”copyright protection49PENANA5OfrvecPs0

     She smiled and said, “I’m Aspen, by the way. Aspen Grover.”copyright protection49PENANAhrjwanOzqt

    Of course, she was named after a damn tree. Ethan tried his best not to roll his eyes. “Ethan Sullivan,” he mumbled. She held out a hand. He looked confused. “What?”copyright protection49PENANAC3HbMNxZb8

    She looked to her hand, and to him, “It’s a hand. You usually shake people’s hands when you meet them for the first time.”copyright protection49PENANAGhXWIsbVhE

    He took a moment but ended up taking her hand and shook it. She smiled, light flicking in her eyes.copyright protection49PENANAVz5f5gDUQ3

    “Nice to meet you.”copyright protection49PENANAnt75FTTcT5

    Ethan couldn’t help to laugh. “Yeah, sure, you too, I guess.”copyright protection49PENANAlzmiw5LH03

    They let go, and Aspen lifted her umbrella so that he could fit under. He felt embarrassed a bit, but he tried not to think about it as they strolled down the sidewalk to the coffee shop that was sounded odder than her. copyright protection49PENANAlWCrbIIOCy
