Today I took my dads car because he didn't have work today for some reason. Pulling the keys out of my backpack, I unlocked the door and started the car. I decided that I'd go to the mall, because what better thing to do, than go to the mall. My dad gave me an allowance of fifteen dollars a week and I've been saving for a while now, I guess I have to spend it at some point. Well, aside from spending it on Trey's bail, of course...

I sang along to Tainted Love as I pulled into the parking lot. Shutting off the engine, I walked inside. The mall glowed with radiant signs and the glass roof let in the sunlight. It reflected off the marble floor and I shielded my eyes.

After making a few more pizzas, I was noticing the difference in my pizzas from messy blobs, to decent, edible pizzas.

After my first five, Maria started serving mine and I felt a sense of pride wash over me. At six o'clock, they told me to go home, but not before giving me a check for eighty dollars. I was ecstatic, that's three months of allowance in a day!

I gave the, my phone number to call me whenever they needed me. Maria and Marco were married, I found that out when they kissed. I assumed they weren't just dating because one, they were in their sixties. Two, they shared a restaurant together.

I wanted that.
