WEDNESDSAY JUNE 23; For those of us who made it through our rough day at work, we're heading down to Merlotte's tonight. Get acquainted with the other girls and make some new friends. Maybe you'll even meet a new man. Whatever happens, you know you'll be in for a good time.
I lightly pressed the lock button on my keys, my car lights flashing twice. I glanced at my reflection once more in the rear view mirror, then made my way to Merlotte's.
I reached for the handle, when a local's hand beat mine to it. "Ladies first." he smiled.
"Thank you." I smiled back at him, then took a step into Merlotte's. When I walked in, the loud chatter from everyone hit me. It was busy tonight, just like every other night. I tried to find an table, but the house was filled. Luckly, after a few moments scoworing the place, I found a table in the back by a window.
"Hey Taylor." Sookie appeared at my table, smiling at me.
"Hi Sookie." I replied. " Big crowd tonight."
She looked around and laughed, "Yeah, you can say that agian. So, what do you want to drink?"
"I'll just have a water." I said.
She put a menu infront of me, "I'll be back with your water and to take your order." she walked off to another table of customors.
I flipped opened the menu, looking down the list what was served at Merlotte's. After a while staring at the names of food, I snapped the menu shut, deciding on a burger and fries and some apple pie for desert.
"What will it be?" Sookie set down my glass of water on the table, then pulled her order book from her apron and a pen behind her ear.
"Burger and fries. Then apple pie for desert." I told her what I wanted.
She wrote it down, walking to the back.
I sat there by myself, looking at my chipping nail polish, until he walked in. I turned my head to focus on the outside, which didnt really work. I had to peek at him out of the corner of my eye. He was walking this way, towards me. I had to look natural.
"Do you mind if I sit here?" Jack asked, standing above me. "All the other tables are occupied."
"Not at all." I smiled.
"Thanks." he said, sliding in the booth across from me.
Im sorry I didnt write this yesterday, it was my brother's birthday, and I was busy. I'll try to get today's event up tonight(:
If you read this, write occupied.
