Chapter 2:


I head home after I hurt my foot. To be honest the throbbing pain was starting to go. I walk into my apartment. It wasn't much but it was enough for me. I didn't have a lot of Money because I had paid for my mother's surgery when they found a brain tumour. She survived it but seems to be getting worse as the days go.

Surprisingly, my apartment was well organised and you wouldn't think the girl living here has no money and no 'home'. This was a cheap apartment and that's what I needed.

I answer my brand new phone my best friend, Jason, got me and spoke to him for a while.

He bought it for my birthday and insisted it was fine. He was an architect- what he wanted to do since school. I quickly change before I get in my uniform for work. I should be back in time for dinner with Nick. I messaged him anyway, just so I know that I should be back in time.

To Nick: Where and when tonight?

My question was blunt and I put my shoes in when I get a reply.

Wow, I didn't think he would reply almost instantly.

From Nick: 7? And either I'll pick you up or meet you some where. It's a surprise! X

I decided that I would walk to the bottom of the street in the opposite side of the road to meet him.

It's better for him to not know where I live right now.

To be honest, I don't even know why I agreed to dinner. I mean, I'm over my ex- Justin but my father wasn't amazing and neither was Justin. He liked me for my body and I liked him for the constant comfort and safety.

With that thought I'm mind, I leave my house and begin walking to a same cafe.

Surprisingly, the money was good in here. I think it might be because the manager feels slightly sorry for me- but I get $10 an hour and in a week I work here 40 hours. I then work 30 hours in a resteraunt too since it was 24 hour.

Most of the time I don't sleep at all.

"Hey Debby" I smile and throw my hair up when I walk in.

"Hi Ally. How you holding up?" She asked. My manager was a total sweet heart.

"I'm good" I smile softly before putting on my apron.

"Ally, you work so hard for all of this. You don't have to come in and immediately start working" she says softly.

My manager knew my mum and that's how I got the job here. However, she is my boss and I work for this cafe to stay in business, so that's what I do.

"I know but you know that I want to work hard for everything I earn" I say, it makes me feel independent and I don't like to rely on others.

She sighed but gave me a smile anyway.

"When is your mum coming out of hospital?" She asked softly and quietly. I froze.

I don't think she was coming out the hospital alive and the thought made my eyes tear up.

I simply shook my head and shrugged.

"I'm not sure" my words were barely heard but she gave me a knowing look.

She gave me a small hug and told me she was always there for me.

With that in mind, I began working.


It was 6:30 when I finished my shift. I walked back home and text Nick again, asking what I should wear.

The reply, again, was instant.


: Wear something fancy, meet me at Annie's at 7. X

Nick was totally understanding as to why I didn't want him to pick me up but reassured me anyway.

Annie's was a bakery next door to the cafe I worked at.

I look in my wardrobe and picked out a plain black dress that had a silver belt around the waist. The dress came mid thigh and was a bit daring but it was the only fancy thing i had to wear. I let my curly hair down and put it in a loose fishtale braid before putting on a little bit of eyeliner, mascara and lipgloss. I put on some black heels, only small ones, then I left my apartment and walked to Annie's where I saw Nick leaning against a black car.


God, he was attractive. Like really attractive. He had brown hair and dark brown- almost black eyes. He was dressed in a 3 piece black and white suit and had a cigarette in his mouth whilst waiting.

Nick surprised me. The walked with confidence, he spoke with confidence but he was a gentleman about running into me. Or me running into him.

"Hey Ally" he smiled which literally was like a punch in the stomach. He was so hot and he was picking a girl like me.

"Hi" I smile, keeping my biggest insecurities hidden.

"You look beautiful" he says, his eyes taking over my body a few times before they flashed with approval. It's strange how someone you just met can have a affect on you like this.

"Thank you" I smile, "you look good too" I say and he smiled.

"Thank you Ally. You ready to leave?" He asked and I was about to nod when I heard Debby.

"Ally" she says in a sign song voice. I groan. She Is gonna embarrass me.

"Hey Debby, where you going?" I ask and she smiled sadly at me.

"To visit your mother" she says and I smile.

My mum would like that.

"Tell her I said hi and that I promise to see her after work tomorrow" I say. "Tell her I miss her" I add and she smiled.

"I will. You look gorgeous. Have fun tonight because you don't know how much you deserve it." She says and I smile. "Now, don't keep that handsome young man waiting. Have fun!" She smiled and I grin before waving as she walked away.

Nick looked at me with a small smile as he opened the door for me.

"Thank you" I say and he smiled.

"No problem" he says. He jogs over to the driver's side and got in before buckling his seat belt. He drove off and we spoke a bit.

"You have a job?" He asked and I nodded.

"Yeah, my mum was diagnosed with a brain tumour and so I began to work" I say, explaining the whole meaning of the conversation with Debby.

"Is she okay?" There was actually a lot of concern in his voice.

"Honestly, I don't think she is getting better. She survived the surgery but the doctor said it looks like she is getting worse as the days go" I say honestly, I make sure my face is blank.

"I'm sorry to hear that" he says.

"Where are we going?" I ask, changing the subject completely.

"You'll see" he says with a smile.

I don't know how because I've just met him but I can feel a strong connection between Nick and I.

I didn't know if I liked it.
