Chapter 2 (edited)
The following day was the same, wake up, shower, and get dressed. I choose leggings again with my work shirt and my hair into a bun. Typically I’m not a makeup person so I don’t worry about putting any on. I slip on my shoes, grab my purse as well as my phone and made my journey to work. Today I was working a double shift since we were short-staffed. That didn’t bother me, I could use the extra money anyway.
Arriving at work I noticed it was exceptionally busy for some reason. We get busy here and there but never this busy. I was trying to keep an eye out for anyone who may be Prince Charming but I was swamped with work.
By the time things did slow down, it was 6:30 and it was time for me to leave. The good thing was I didn’t have to work tomorrow so I could sleep in and be lazy. As I was clocking out another note was sitting in the same spot as yesterday. A smile automatically made it on my face.
As soon as I made it into my apartment, I took my shoes off and went straight to reading my letter.
Once again you looked perfect, and once again I didn’t get to sit at one of your tables. Today I was able to hear your voice and hear your laugh and it was music to my ears. I know I sound like one of those cliche romance guys, but I guess that's who I am. My mother always said to follow your heart and don’t be afraid to show your feelings. My mother is a wise woman and always took what she said serious. Now I’m rambling on in this note and sound like a girl, in which I am not. But a little about myself is, my favorite color is red. I’m a dog lover an I work at a business. I hope I can know a little about you some time but until then I’ll see you around.
P.s. sorry, it’s short. I could write you more but work is calling xoxo
After I read the note I came to the conclusion of not being sure about what to think about this guy. Maybe I should respond to his note and leave it in the same spot as his. That's exactly what I did for the rest of the night.
You’re still a mystery to me and I think that's what excites me. I really hope you aren’t some creepy old man. Thank you for the compliments, no one has told me those before. A little about me is my favorite color is blue, I also like dogs but I like all kinds of animals and you already know I’m a waitress. Not a big deal type job but it works for me and pays my bills for now. But anyways I hope to get to finally meet you one day but until then I’ll be looking forward to your notes.
P.s. what do you do for fun?
I labeled the letter to prince charming and sealed it up. Before I got too comfortable I decided to head back to work and drop off the letter in case I was too late tomorrow. Once the note was dropped off I went back home and heated up leftover pasta. After I ate I cleaned up the few dishes I had and went to bed.
The next day I didn’t get up until noon, it was nice sleeping in for a change. When I got up and moving around I ate some food and put some music on the stereo, and got busy doing my cleaning. I try not to let it get too messy for one person but sometimes I get lazy, I mean who doesn’t.
After cleaning the whole apartment I jumped in the shower and threw some clothes on so I could do some food and hygiene shopping. I go major shopping once a month and then just get the small items each week.
As I spent the next hour and a half getting everything I needed and then some, I was hoping to see the guy who bought my items the other day. With my luck though, I didn’t see him, which was a bummer he was good looking and I wanted to repay him somehow.
When I got home I put everything away, then went and relaxed on the couch to watch some movies all night.
A week has passed since I wrote prince charming a letter and I haven’t heard a reply from him. Maybe he didn’t get my letter or maybe I scared him away. I mean I don’t have the best-paying job compared to his. All of these maybes were making my head hurt. On top of things, we are again overwhelmingly busy today. I liked the busy days since it made the time seem to pass quicker, but at the same time, I wasn’t used to it. Then it didn’t help that I wasn’t feeling good. I felt like my head was going to explode.
When 3 o’clock came, I finished up attending my customers and headed to clock out. At the register sat a bouquet of flowers and a note addressed this time to My silver-haired angel. Upon seeing that made me smile and I feel a little better. After clocking out I grabbed the note and the flowers and then headed home. On my way, I couldn’t stop smelling the roses. They were white, my favorite.
Once inside my apartment, I put the flowers into some water along with a vase and opened the letter.
My Silver Haired Angel
First I want to apologize for not writing sooner. I was away on a business trip. Yes, I did get your letter. To answer your question I like to draw for fun or to swim. I also like to bake but don’t tell anyone, my mother taught me how. Also another thing, I will compliment you every time I write you a letter just so there's a smile on your beautiful face. And yes one day we will meet but until then I’ll be a mystery for you to figure out.
I hope you like the flowers I got you. I noticed today you didn’t have your usual smile on your face, so I hope this helps and fixes that. If I’m honest I don’t like it when you’re upset or feeling down.
Anyways work calls again, Until next time.
P.s. What do you do for fun?
He was right it did put a smile on my face. After reading the note I went and took some headache medicine, grabbed a piece of paper and a pen, and started writing back.
Since you changed my name I thought I change yours up as well. But you were right the flowers did bring a smile to my face. I love them, white roses are actually my favorite flower, so thank you. And nothing to worry about me, just a really long day at work with a massive headache. Nothing a little medicine and a nap can’t fix. I like to read books and do a little photography once in a while. But I love to cook and bake. Your secret is safe with me and I would love to try some of your baking sometime. I can’t wait to meet you! But until then.
Your silver-haired angel
Ps. What's your family like if it's not a touchy subject?
P.p.s how old are you? I am 20
After writing his letter I went and cooked dinner. Tonight I made chicken and some Mexican rice. I hated cooking for one person, sometimes it gets lonely and wished I had someone else living with me. I mean I’m only 20 and still have a life ahead of me, but some days I wish I had someone. In high school, I was the shy girl that no one paid attention to. I didn’t mind then because I was focused on graduating and no I wasn’t your typical straight-A student.
After finishing up eating and cleaning up I called it a night and headed to bed early.
The next morning I was feeling a lot better with a little pep in my step. I did my usual routine and then headed to work. I left the note by the register and started my work. Today I was also helping in the back because we were short-staffed again. We didn’t need any more workers but everyone seemed to need today off.
I tried keeping an eye out for who the mystery man was but haven’t noticed anything. What caught my eye was the guy who paid for my groceries. He was with a guy and a girl, they looked to be in a serious talk. I thought about going over to him, so I could thank him as well as repay him, but I was getting swamped with my work since I was needed in the back as well.
When we slowed down, I looked at the register and seen a note for me there. I was upset that I had missed who had put it there. I once again waited until I get home to read the letter. Not because I don’t want to read it but because I don’t want anyone else reading it.
My silver-haired angel <3
For starters, I am 23 years old. I’m glad the flowers brought a smile and I hope your feeling better today. From what I saw of you, you did look to be feeling better.
Maybe you can make dinner for me one night and then we can make dessert together. A little about my family is my parents are retired leaving me to take over the family business when I turned 20. I have a younger brother and sister who I just had lunch with today. My brother works with me and my sister is working on a fashion line. That’s pretty much it really. So until next time love.
Did he just call me love? Oh my gosh, I am hardcore fangirling right now.
