He’s not answering. This the second time I’ve called in fifteen
minutes, and I’ve been texting without any luck, too. Was he
planning on still remembering to be here at two?
I end the call and glance up at the clock above the bar,
seeing it’s nearly midnight now. Still two hours before my
boyfriend thinks I’m off work and need to be picked up.
And here I thought we got a lucky surprise tonight, me
getting off early.
I need to get my car running. I can’t keep relying on him
The music fills the air around me, customers laughing to
my right and one of the other bartenders filling the cooler with
ice to my left.
Unease pricks at the back of my neck. If he’s not
answering, then he’s either asleep or out. Both could mean
he’ll remember me after it’s too late. He’s not always
unreliable, but this wouldn’t be the first time, either.
That’s the problem with making your friend your
boyfriend, I guess. He still thinks he can get away with
I grab my shirt and school bag out of the cabinet
underneath the taps and slide my phone into my pocket. I pull
on a flannel over my tank top, button it up, and tuck the front

chunks piled on top of her head and a string of tiny hearts
tattooed around her upper arm.
“There’s a midnight showing of Evil Dead at The Grand
Theater,” I tell her as I close the cabinet and slide the strap of
my leather satchel over my head. “I’ll go kill time and wait for
She finishes pouring her beer and looks at me like there are
a million things she wants to say but doesn’t even know where
Yeah, yeah, I know.
I wish she’d stop looking at me like that. There’s a good
possibility Cole won’t be here at two a.m. considering he’s not
answering the phone right now. I know that. He could be three
sheets to the wind at some friend’s house.
Or he could be at home sleeping with the alarm set to
come get me at two and his phone left in another room. It’s not
likely, but it’s possible. He’s got two hours. I’ll give him two
Besides, my sister is at work, and no one here can leave to
drive me home. Work is slow tonight, and I got cut early
because I’m the only one without a child to support.
Even though I desperately need the money just the same.
I grip the strap of the bag over my chest, feeling like I
should be older than eighteen.
Well, nineteen now, almost forgetting what today is.
I take a deep breath, pushing the worry away for tonight. A
