They finally got to the Laughing Cow. It was packed, but Aspen was okay with the lines. She would talk to other people in line. Laugh with other people, and smile at the little kids. Ethan was moaning and groaning the whole time. Once they got to the front, one of the guys took their order.copyright protection38PENANAWXYNaKkLLf

            “Hey Aspen,” the short guy with the bright blue eyes said. She must have known him. “The usual?”copyright protection38PENANA9y1JZ75vas

            Aspen looked to Ethan first, with those big eyes and asked, “You sure about the fried chicken latté?”copyright protection38PENANAD9j95JzPch

            Ethan just glared. “I’m sure,” he said.copyright protection38PENANAQ8fOVpzgak

            She turned her head back to the cashier, and with a huge smile, she said, “Yes please Morgan. But coffee for him, he has a headache. Drinking too much.”copyright protection38PENANAwkTx4SF9nP

            Ethan gave her a look, but before he could say anything, the guy cut in. “Who’s he?”copyright protection38PENANAC1YWb4FKTS

            “This is Ethan, I found him.” She said it as if was show-and-tale day at preschool.copyright protection38PENANA1J1hyXG7dR

Ethan had to look away, he was turning so red in the face. He looked around the café, seeing if there was someone else he could talk to, someone that would help him right away.copyright protection38PENANAsJclhhdWqB

 “Befriending the homeless?” Morgan joked. It wasn’t a really good joke to Ethan though. He sure wasn’t homeless and didn’t want people thinking he was. He started to wonder if he did look like he was.copyright protection38PENANAL3DK0OOFyI

            Aspen giggled. It was a very light giggle, the type to make Ethan notice, to make him stop looking for someone else.copyright protection38PENANAyAsAR0xy8K

 “Yeah, I guess you could say that. Oh, and I want a big cookie. I love these cookie, did Mary makes these again?”copyright protection38PENANAqAuDWLUaHl

            “She sure did. It’s on the house.”copyright protection38PENANAMtopdoe24N

            Her mouth hung open and she started shaking her head. “Oh Morgan, you don’t-“copyright protection38PENANALDnddfeKNm

            “Shoot, Aspen, it’s no big deal, after what you did for Freddie.”copyright protection38PENANAveXZRULL4s

            “Well, thank you very much. And don’t worry about it, I love that little guy so much, he’s a cutie.”copyright protection38PENANA6QWvgaTvdY

            Ethan raised an eyebrow, confused. Before he could ask a question, Morgan went on, “Oh, hey what are you-“copyright protection38PENANAiYCGbPVpAJ

            “Hey!” Ethan cut in. “I need to really borrow your phone. Remember me?”copyright protection38PENANAL5YJ5PDQAH

            Aspen’s face froze up and Morgan gave him a cold look. She felt red in the face as she turned to Morgan. “Thanks,” she said in a mice voice.copyright protection38PENANAjHygcPq6kD

            “We’ll call your order when it’s ready,” Morgan said, eyeing Ethan.copyright protection38PENANA5DBHjNwfc7

            Even though it was all on the house, Aspen put a five in the tip jar. She then grabbed a big cookie off the shelve.copyright protection38PENANAZYcXHiMl9n

It said gluten free, egg free, peanut free, soy free, and vegan safe. Ethan turned his nose at it. Aspen and him found a table towards the back. She plugged her dead phone into the wall under the table and Ethan collapsed into the chair. He didn’t realize how sore he was until his body had finally rested.copyright protection38PENANA3s5BIhq9oL

            “Do you want part of a cookie?” she asked.copyright protection38PENANANtopaIcHXp

            He looked it over. “No, it looks disgusting.”copyright protection38PENANAOXn1U5jHrs

            She didn’t say anything. Lucky for her, the coffee was called out and she went up to get it. Morgan and her talked for a few more seconds before she returned. Ethan put his head on the table, feeling like he waited forever for her to come back. She was so friendly with everyone and it was killing him.copyright protection38PENANA5uVa5ErwOQ

            Aspen placed the coffee cup on the table, next to his head. He looked up to see she was looking down. “Do you take cream or sugar?”copyright protection38PENANAiBjG0updcn

            “No,” he mumbled.copyright protection38PENANAC1k02f6mWy

            “Alright then,” she said, sitting down. She put the coffee to her lips and started to drink away. Ethan tried to take a sip, but it was hot. “Are you going to call a friend to come pick you up?”copyright protection38PENANAP12Kb8pDFd

            “My assistant. Though, I don’t think he will pick up.”copyright protection38PENANAtXPNEPi33u

            “Your what? Assistant? Why would he not pick up?”copyright protection38PENANArGvLHy0NUX

            “It’s the bastards day off,” Ethan said, grabbing the phone and checking it. It was still too dead to turn on. “But I don’t know who else to really call.”copyright protection38PENANAmKZovawUOb

            “Are you that busy in life that you have to hire someone to help?” she asked as if it was a joke.copyright protection38PENANA8i9X5NNoRQ

            “Yep,” Ethan said again, making her stop smiling.copyright protection38PENANASiwo4eW52R

            She asked in what seemed almost like a fairy tone, “Does he do all your work while you go out on a walk?”copyright protection38PENANA2oB1M7cj11

            Ethan lowered the phone to see her face. He made such a funny face; it made her giggle a bit more.  “A walk?”copyright protection38PENANAu9jE6prUNj

            “Don’t you like going on walks? Or running. I would, but I’m not that busy in life. Does he do all your work for you?”copyright protection38PENANAKFCh4Gv0Lx

            “Well . . . My dad made me hire him.”copyright protection38PENANASOVuPIB21D

            “Your dad?”copyright protection38PENANA3wMnaTMCNz

            “I work for my dad’s company.”copyright protection38PENANAVyfxQkelkZ

            “Oh, so why did he make you hire someone?”copyright protection38PENANATdOPHDxjGz

            He seemed to give a slight smile. His dad was stuck with him. He just said with a shrug, “I guess I don’t have time.”copyright protection38PENANAWK5J7fCTSq

            “You had time to get drunk last night.” copyright protection38PENANAtNYJlO3zao

            “It was my birthday,” he protested.copyright protection38PENANAz4BnTj1rDH

            “Oh! Happy Birthday. I hope you had a really nice time,” Aspen said with a soft kind-hearted grin.  Ethan couldn’t help but stare at this weird, out of this world girl. He just shook his head, and waited for the minutes til the phone was charged enough to use. But he started to think about last night, and everyone at the party.copyright protection38PENANA1zs6izmVte

He started to think about the hot women with their next to nothing clothes. He thought about all the drinks he bought for everyone. He started to think about the guys laughing and joking with him, as if they been long time friends. He didn’t even know any of their names. He thought about the cool guys, the loud music, hot dancers, all the drinks, all of the people, and how none of them, not even one, mumbled Happy Birthday to him.copyright protection38PENANAmX2kGn9KXk

            Yet, this strange girl right in front of him was the only one that had even actually said the words. She was the only one that wished him happiness. She didn’t even know that he had money to blow every second of the day for years and still be in 1 perfect. She was kind, just to be kind.copyright protection38PENANA8wpKUj4VKH

            He found himself smiling, straighten his back. “Thank you . . . thank you for that actually.” And he had meant it too.copyright protection38PENANADLh5SAFev8

            She nodded. “Oh, it’s not problem. What did you do? Drinks with a few guy friends?”copyright protection38PENANAtR5vcMTmwQ

            He shrugged. “Yeah, I guess something like that.”copyright protection38PENANAHFn6qhpuca

            “How old are you?”copyright protection38PENANAcQWuVO4A3A

            “30.”copyright protection38PENANAJxsP3FCW19

            “Oh wow, really? You don’t look that old. But 30 is the new 20 these days, that’s what I’ve been told. How do you feel about being 30? I still got a little while to go. I actually can’t wait til I get older.”copyright protection38PENANAMJOaQerfJE

            “Um, it’s alright, I guess.”copyright protection38PENANAqWumqqbu1f

            She nodded. “So, what do you do for a living?”copyright protection38PENANA5KMxAPccMe

            Ethan thought about it for a second. “I rather not talk about work. What do you do?”copyright protection38PENANAlyYaJOpa48

            “I work at a tea shop, but today is my day off. It’s just right off of Pearl Street.”copyright protection38PENANAOu4jRvJ20K

            “Where?” he asked crossing his eyebrows. He had no idea where anything was in this town. Even though it was no more than an hour away, he had never had the desire to come to Boulder. He knew this is where all the weirdoes lived. He was told all the stories.copyright protection38PENANAi5v4D5UPiG

            “Pearl Street. You never heard of it?”copyright protection38PENANA4Df2OYQd9U

            “You expect me to know the Laughing Cow, and Pearl Street?”copyright protection38PENANAlXoqggW0iW

            “Pearl Street is so famous! Tourist come from all over and go there. It’s such a neat place.”copyright protection38PENANAKA2fFFlzvD

            “It’s just a street.”copyright protection38PENANAgzhvC5usiD

            Aspen gave a little giggle. “No, it’s not just a street, it’s an outdoor mall.”copyright protection38PENANAnEBM5S21Sk

            “What’s so special about that?”copyright protection38PENANAYDV0SAFeab

            She grinned. “Maybe if you weren’t so busy working, you could go and visit yourself.”copyright protection38PENANASrK9WmfrPy

            Ethan found himself smiling. It was so odd that this girl, who he didn’t even know that well, was so nice to him. Before he said anything, Aspen looked at her phone and said, “It charged enough. You want to call whoever it was you needed to call?”copyright protection38PENANA4cdFZiy1kq

            She handed him her phone and he started to dial Tom’s number. He put the phone to his ear. It was ringing. After a while, he hung up. Ethan took the phone away.copyright protection38PENANAmi3hjWSZb3

            “No answer?”copyright protection38PENANAa3uVdrisS7

            “It’s the bastard’s day off,” he said. He sighed. “I guess I have to call my father.”copyright protection38PENANA0XkeDjwblR

            “That shouldn’t be too bad . . . would it?” she asked, seeming to pick up on his tone.copyright protection38PENANABH9FZtCSsN

            Ethan didn’t even response. He wasn’t sure what he could say about his father to this girl that would never understand. His father and him were nothing alike. Not in the least.copyright protection38PENANAVCQqy3SQvK

His father, Marcus Sullivan was dirt poor as a child, and through his life, he build a company from the ground up, making millions beyond millions, allowing him to give trust funds to both his boys. His brother, Calvin, was the one who took his money and turned it into millions also.copyright protection38PENANAYwHiLlChwX

            Ethan, on the other hand, still worked at his father’s company. He actually depended on his trust fund more than anything, since his job paid nothing his father’s work. Honestly, if it wasn’t for his father, he didn’t know where in the world he would be.copyright protection38PENANA97FjNEMpxe

            He put in the number for his father. He was hoping that he wouldn’t pick up. After two rings, his father answercopyright protection38PENANAcsR2Tp6LfC
