Chapter 6

Some kid came in at eight asking for her. She was there alone and looked at him suspiciously. His dark chocolate eyes were the same as his skin with matching hair and wearing a dirty brown winter jacket with a runny nose.

He asked again impatiently, "Can I speak to Nicole?"

"I'm Nicole," she acknowledged.

It was his turn to look at her suspiciously. "You don't look like a Nicole."

"And who do I look like?"

He shrugged. "I thought you'd be white."

"Why?"

"Because some white guy two blocks over paid me five bucks to deliver a little piece of paper."

"What paper?" she asked suppressing her excitement knowing fully well who the "white guy" was.

He dug deep in his jacket pocket pulling out old candy wrappers, crumbs, broken cookies, and finally a neatly folded piece of lavender paper. "Are you sure you're Nicole?" he asked again.

Exasperated, she insisted. "Yes."

"Prove it."

"He's got gorgeous green eyes."

"What's gorgeous mean?"

Nicole rolled her eyes heavenwards. "They're real pretty green."

He smiled and put the paper in the money slot.

Can you get off an hour early and meet me out back? Please respond below and return with kid. Reward for a positive response to kid. Ethan His writing was very neat and she almost wanted to treasure the enriched paper. It didn't feel cheap and it smelled like him. Reluctantly she had to write on it, "YES."
