I decide to drive straight to work instead of going home because I can't deal with the disappointed look my mom gives me every time I walk in the door. I honestly don't know why she is disappointed in me. Maybe, its because I have zero friends and I'm not social at all, when she was the most popular girl in school. We are complete opposites personality wise. Although I got my bright blue eyes from her, I got black hair and golden brown skin from my dad. At least, that's what my mom told me when she finally had the courage to tell me about him. He walked out on her when I was born because he didn't want to put his music career on hold for a family. Maybe that's another reason my mom is so disappointed with me. Im leaving her and trying to pursue a career in the music industry instead of being a realtor or a "stable job" as she calls it, like she has.
Luckily, the diner is only 10 minutes away from school and I always keep at least one uniform in my car. As I walk into the diner, I bump into Sarah, the manager of the diner, who is few years older than myself.
"Shit, sorry Sarah, I didn't see you there", I say while she is giving me an awful glare that she eases off her face once she realizes that its me.
"It's alright Arryn, I thought you were some jerk customer who bumped me on purpose'' she says while slightly laughing. Mostly the high school kids come to this diner and they are rude as hell.
"How's the day been?'' I ask, already ready to finish the day so I can finish packing.
Giving me a bored tone she says ''you know damn well that it is sooo slow! Ive had like 10 customers all day. I can't wait until we close early today"
"Closing early? Why would you close early?'" I ask confused. We've never closed early before.
She gives me a hard stare while flailing her arms around dramatically, "you know we are closing for your graduation! I've told you this for the passed month!"
"I told you not to close for my graduation, I'm not even going to cross the stage with the class" I say through gritted teeth. I don't want to spend anymore time with the kids in my class. I wasn't bullied, but they weren't the nicest to me. I tried to stay as invisible as possible, but sometimes that didn't always work out.
"Ugggggh, I thought you were just joking" giving me a pouty sad look.
Slightly pouting myself, "no I wasn't joking, I'm leaving in less that 24 hours so I need to pack and get ready for the long drive"
Putting her hands on her hips, "fine! We are still closing early and I'm making you a decent meal and also lots of left overs for your drive." I know she gives in easily because she has seen how some of them treat me when they come in here.
"Alright, alright" I give in, not wanting to argue with her. She's been like an older sister to me since I was 16 and first got this job.
"Lets go babe" she says while pulling me in the kitchen.
