I made it to spinning class two mornings in a row; I’m on
It’s morning. Craig, Nicole, and I are waiting at Bonjour for Carrie to arrive.
“Let’s take bets on if she actually comes, twenty bucks she’s a no-show,” Craig demands.
Bonjouris the most adorable little breakfast café, and the food is amazing. We sit at the same table, and the staff always takes very good care of us.
“Sienna?” says a voice behind me.
Oh no, it’s Luke. This is pretty awkward considering we haven’t spoken since I let him have it the other night. I don’t count the few “I’m really sorry” and “I love you” texts he sent. He is with a few co-workers that I recognize but don’t really know well.
“Are you having a work meeting?” he asks. He waves to Craig and Nicole. They both say hi, looking very curious about our obvious awkwardness. I’m sure they will force me to explain it before I leave this meeting.
“Yeah, we are just waiting on Carrie as usual.” I roll my eyes.
“Ah yes, the infamous Carrie. I still can’t believe that I’ve never met her, only heard the stories,” he says, laughing.
“Well, considering she’s hardly ever in town, that’s not surprising,” I reply.
Coincidentally, at that very moment, the front door flies open and there she is in head to toe designer couture.
“So sorry I’m late, had to take a call. I need a double espresso,” she calls as she saunters over to our table. Luke and I are still engaged in our awkward conversation. Carrie approaches and pulls off her Prada sunglasses staring directly at Luke.
