“How was your meal, ladies?” Cameron asks.
“Lovely. Thank you,” Ashley answers.
“It was great. Thank you,” I say, looking up at him and smiling.
“Well, we have a great pudding menu, and since it’s your birthday, Ashley, you should have a little treat,” Cameron insists.
I gaze at his short brown hair, piercing blue eyes, and sweet smile. He is quite tall with a medium body frame. I never got a good look at him that day. I didn’t have time, nor did I care what he looked like.
“Keisha, hot chocolate fudge cake and ice cream?” Ashley asks.
“You know me so well.” I giggle.
“It’s my favorite, too,” Cameron adds.
Ashley and I sit there chatting when I feel a tap on my shoulder.
“Hey,” Cameron says. I didn’t hear or see him come back.
“Hi,” I answer. Why is he here again? And with no dessert?
“Can I borrow you for a minute?” he asks.
“Yes…” I pause, looking at Ashley.
Feeling safe, I walk alongside Cameron. I haven’t felt like this since before the attack. This seems so strange to me. We walk out of the building and take a seat at the front on the wooden bench.
“Sorry to take you away from your friend,” he states, his voice gentle but firm.
