It was a cold breezy night; well more like 2am. I was unable to sleep and I was also craving some ramen. Might as well kill two birds with one stone.
I headed to a convenience store that was only 10 minutes away from where I lived.
My apartment was a cozy yet elegant home.
I continued to walk and spotted the convenience store not long after. I practically ran inside do to the cold. ‘I really should have brought my jacket with me.’ I had thought to myself as I sped walked towards the back where the snack section was. Since it was cold out I grabbed a mask as well as my ramen.
I walked over towards the counter and I didn’t see anybody. I sat for a moment deep in my own thoughts when someone tapped my shoulder. “huh” I let out a slightly surprised gasp as I jumped a bit. I looked over my shoulder to see a man with the purest of white hair. He looked ethereal. Well despite the fact that he was wearing a mask making it impossible for me to admire his features to the fullest.
“Hello?... Miss?...” I rapidly blinked my eyes coming back to reality noticing that there was now somebody at the counter. “Sorry...” I shyly spoke out to the cashier and smiled sheepishly. The cashier just smiled slightly. I quickly glanced back t the man behind me to only realize that he looked quite familiar. I just couldn’t exactly understand why though. I quickly turned back around once my eyes met his. I couldn’t help but notice the annoyance in his eyes; I quickly payed for my items and walked out of the store.
I shivered as I walked home only to suddenly feel a warmth embrace my shoulders. I turned back around to see nothing. I realized that I now had a jacket on.
I put my hands into the pockets of the jacket to warm them when I felt something. A pendant. It was enchanting. It was a small flower that was encased in some sort of clear rock like crystal.
