I woke up and felt a pain in my stomach, I was hungry. I knew I had to eat but after yesterday I was kind of afraid to. I went into the kitchen and searched the fridge. Perfect. I thought. Something I can make without an oven. I grabbed the fruit and put it in a bowl, stirring it together.
Ring, ring, ring. I picked up my phone.
“Hello” I said
“Hey it’s Miko,” she said joyfully, “We have a spot open at the government center and I remember you said you were looking for a job. Well I happen to be pretty close with the boss if you’re interested.”
“Really? Of course I’m interested!”
“Awesome! I’ll let him know,” she paused for a few seconds then kept going, “Oh hey also I was wondering if you wanted go to GeeksCon with me.”
My mind started racing. Was this a date? What does this mean? How should I react? What should I say? What even is GeeksCon? I exhaled heavily, trying to calm down. “Yeah sure! When do you want to meet?” I asked as calm as possible.
“Lets meet there at noon,” she said.
“Ok I’ll see you there,” I said clearly excited. I hung up and started getting ready.
I got into my car and drove to Karaoke Bar.
“Hey!” I said walking up to her.
“Oh hey! Follow me,” she replied, obviously up to something. I followed her like she wanted. We stopped and she pointed to one of the games.
“What?” I asked. I didn’t know what she wanted me to do, thinking back it was kind of obvious, but hey, I was confused.
“Play it,” she said giggling at how clueless I was.
I stepped onto the machine and lights started flashing around me. I grabbed a block here, moved it there, and repeat. I finished the game and stepped off. My score flashed in front of me in big, bold, light blue text, 235.
Miko stepped up behind me, “Hah, not bad for your first time,” she smirked, but one of those friendly smirks, when you’re with your friends and you pick on them kind of smirks, “My high score is 678.”
She grabbed my hand and lead me over to the shirt and food booths. I looked around and saw some…interesting people to say the least.
We both bought a shirt and some food. The shirt was really cool to be honest, I just don’t know if it was worth the money, I mean without a solid job I really shouldn’t be making crazy purchases.
The day quickly went by and, well, it was probably one of the best in awhile. Which is pretty weird considering I was only in town for day or two. I got home around 7:00pm and it was dark already. I laid down and went to bed.
