A Year or Two

Big Plans

As soon as I got to Spencer's apartment I knocked on the door. Spencer answered right away.

"Heyo," I said, letting myself in.

"Yo," he said, closing the door.

"So.. Is the couch ready?" I said, taking out my money.

"Yep," he said popping the 'P.'

"Thank you," I said with a warm smile as I tried to hand over the money.

"No, no," he said shaking his head.

"Keep it."

"Are you sure?" I frowned.

"Just invite me to the wedding and it won't cost you a thing." I smiled.

"Of course. Thank you for everything," I said as I walked over to hug him.

He hugged me back, "no. Thank you."

"Spencer?" Called Audrey, Spencer's new bride as she walked downstairs.

"Yes, honey?" He smiled and turned to her.

"Well, I should get this couch on the truck and get going," I said smiling at them.

"Okay, good luck."

"Thank you."

When I got the couch on the truck I headed back to the apartment I had just made a payment on yesterday.

"Home sweet home," I said to myself and unloaded the couch onto the tile.

Once the couch was unloaded into the living room, well what was meant to be the living room, I headed off to Galini's Pie Shop to pick up a Coconut Cream Pie.

"Hey, Freddieboy!" Rico called as I walked in the door.

"Hey, Rico. Can I get a Coconut Cream Pie?" I asked hopefully.

"Sure can," I said happily.

"How much?"

"Don't worry. It's on the house." I smiled.

"Are you sure?" I asked.

"Of course. Just treat my Little Sammie right, now." I nodded.

"I will," I said as I picked up the pie from the counter.

"See ya later, fredbag." Yep.. that was Sam's long lost brother, all right.

Next was the groovy smoothie.

"Hey, Freddie!" T-Bo called as I walked in the door.

"Hey, T-Bo," I said and turned to his girlfriend.

"Hey, Shan."

Remember how T-Bo said he was into.. bigger ladies? Well, Shan was as big as they come. From the moment T-Bo saw her eating an extra large burger with a side of curly fries, he fell in love.

"Hey Freddie," she said and smiled warmly at me.

"Here to pick up your love smoothie?" T-Bo asked while giving me a very perverted smirk.

I laughed. "Yep. A Blueberry Blix, Strawberry Blam mix." I said and smiled proudly.

"Here you go," Shan said carrying out a huge cup with two huge straws attached.

"Oh, and no charge. I'm kind of a softy for romance," she said smiling.

"Hey! I never-" T-Bo stopped with a glare from Shan.

"Yeah, it's on the house," he mumbled.

"Good boy." I smiled and took the smoothie.

"Well.. this is my last stop," I said nervously.

"Don't worry! She loves you," Shan said reassuringly.

"Thank you," I said and prepared for the best moment of my life.
