“What?”copyright protection48PENANAWJaWcWhgiJ

            “Um, hey dad,” Ethan said in a tiny voice.copyright protection48PENANAqG6mZDLxni

            “My God, Ethan, where are you? Your mother is worried sick, you know that?” Ethan took the phone away from his ear, and then returned it after a moment. His father was still going on about something. “We had a birthday dinner planned for you.”copyright protection48PENANArleHvYsffq

            “I know dad.”copyright protection48PENANAwb9H8mEqCW

            “You got drunk at a club?”copyright protection48PENANA93DgpCUaah

            “I had a party at my friend’s club-”copyright protection48PENANAtBDHj8FMnU

            “We worked hard on our birthday dinner for you. No call, no thanks . . .You’re a real disappointment, you know that?” his father said, stabbing him with the knife and twisting it.copyright protection48PENANAcU6mCfJgFl

            Ethan gave a sigh. “I know,” he said, not even flitching at the pain the knife put into him. He’s been stab so many times, it was numbing now. He looked across the table and saw Aspen.copyright protection48PENANAdPoR5OtZYE

He was looking at her, staring at the tip of her short hair. He really liked how the blue brought out her eyes. She was watching the outside world, two hands on her coffee cup. She could have easily been one of those girls in Paris.copyright protection48PENANAhsgV9z3Pmr

            “I better see you in work tomorrow, on time. We need to have a long talk.”copyright protection48PENANAKymRVY7EfM

             Ethan waited for a second. Before he could speak his mind, his father hung up the phone. He didn’t know who he could call now. His father didn’t care if he was hurt. His father could care less if he was in the alley way passed out. He gave the phone back to Aspen.copyright protection48PENANA0tCpkIdOIc

            “So what’s your plan?” she asked. He didn’t want to tell. Why should he? He didn’t even know her.copyright protection48PENANAs0EIVOhZEE

            “I’ll get a taxi back to my place later.”copyright protection48PENANAqocMg8LnM1

            She looked confused. “Isn’t your dad . . . or Tom is it? Aren’t they going to pick you up?”copyright protection48PENANAaNuMcOupCd

            Ethan shrugged, shaking his head. “No.” He looked out the window. “I guess I have a free day today.”copyright protection48PENANAB5dgN9458I

            “Hey, looky there,” she said with perk behind it.  He did manage to give a small smile. “What are you going to do today?”copyright protection48PENANAJy7Wln47LR

            He thought about it. “I am not sure.” He put his hands on top of his head and led back. Aspen sipped on her coffee. “What do you do for fun?”copyright protection48PENANA8VECIQrdg4

            “Well, today I have to do some things, but I do a lot for fun,” she smiled. “I could show you Pearl Street if you want later.”copyright protection48PENANAqR9D7WMc2V

            “That’s fine,” Ethan declined. “You don’t have to.”copyright protection48PENANAVLu3HPqLXb

            “You sure?”copyright protection48PENANAD57hIP8a2o

            He barely knew what that place was suppose to be. “What’s all in Pearl Street?”copyright protection48PENANAesgo6okTAn

            Aspen gave a laugh. “Well, it’s just an outside mall, but they have performances on the street. There are people who juggle with fire, and tons of singers. They have really good hot dogs too, I mean they are really good. It’s by the court house. Oh, there is a pizza shop too, and it’s pretty cheap. You sure you don’t want to come along? I can show you.”copyright protection48PENANAOw8izQ8ZC5

            “No, I don’t have my wallet.”copyright protection48PENANAbfbixT7F39

            “I’ll buy you lunch if you want.” Ethan gave her a look. He put his hands down, and laid them on the table. He led closer to her. Aspen looked around then back to him. “What?”copyright protection48PENANA3iCkGII1Bj

            “I have never had someone offer to buy me lunch. It’s just . . . weird. No offence, but you’re just weird.”copyright protection48PENANAopPxHonPoZ

            She didn’t seem offended, like most people would when someone told them ‘no offence’. “Well, I got a lot to do too. You’ll have to come along with me. And I can drive you back to Denver.”copyright protection48PENANAVAf6SM00r3

            Ethan gave another long pause, and led closer. “Why?”copyright protection48PENANAavmMP2vx46

            “Well, you don’t have a wallet, and I can give you a ride. How will you pay for a taxi?”copyright protection48PENANAQswFZe4n4s

            He was very confused. “I  . . . well . . . why would you do that for me?” Aspen shrugged. He could have laughed at her. She was very unreal. She was nothing that he had seen before. He threw his hands up. “What the hell, I’ll tag along.”copyright protection48PENANAmZ3B6Wo6WP
