"Pj, you know I can't miss work just to get kicked out of a movie set." Peej has been trying to persuade me to skip out on work for the past hour now but even if I wanted to sneak into the set, I'm pretty sure that place is full of security everywhere.
"Come on Phil! If we do this and succeed, we can be able to see behind the scene takes!"
"Pj, the only reason you wanna go is because you have a massive crush on Chris Kendall." I said whilst tying my shoe laces.
I lived in London where everyone and everything was constantly busy. Nearly half downtown London was closed due to the upcoming movie, "Within London," which Chris Kendall, Pj's favourite actor of all time is in. I could honestly careless about the movie but it'd be cool if I got the chance to see the production process.
"You got me there. Hey Phil, aren't you supposed to be at work at 7?"
"Uh yeah, why?"
"It's 6:50 am."
"Shhiiiiii-Shine a light! I need to leave now. Fuck you for making me late."
"I love you too, Philly! Have fun at work!" Peej called out for me as I was heading out the apartment complex.
I realized that the tubes were closed from 6am to 6pm which was fantastic, meaning I wasn't going to be using them any time soon thanks to the dumb movie. There was too much traffic to get a taxi so I guess I'll be walking from now on. Walking should take about 30 minutes tops if I hurry up. It was starting to get colder and unfortunately for me, I forgot my bloody coat because of Pj. As much as I love cold temperature, I hate it right now.
Mid way there, I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket. I took it out to find cute good morning text from my lovely girlfriend of almost 2 year now.
Me: Morning to you too Cara 3
Me: Ugh why did they have to close all the roads? I'll never make it to work on time now!
Cara: why did they close the roads?
Me: i thought you already knew? they closed them due to that new movie
Cara: omg! Wait! Within London?
Me: that's the one
Cara: I knew there was going to be a movie here but I didn't know it was going to be that movie! Philllll you know what that means?
She didn't even give me a chance to reply before she sent her response.
Cara: That means Daniel Howell is going to be here!
Cara: come on Phil! I know you know that Daniel Howell is only the best actor in this whole world!
I didn't even realize Daniel Howell was the star of the movie which was a good thing for Cara since she loves him but honestly I think Daniel is just another arrogant celebrity. I mean it's not like he's a terrible actor, its just that I don't see what's so special about him. I continued to talk to Cara on my way to work until I was at the small cafe.
"I'm sorry I'm late again Mel! I didn't realize they were going to be closing the main tube to get here and the roads." I apologized to my manager, Melanie. Luckily for me, Mel was a very chill boss so I wasn't going to be in too much trouble...I hope.
"You're so lucky we haven't been busy this morning. Just get to work and I'll pretend that you didn't just walk in."
I nodded and went behind the cash register.
It was around 12 pm once the cafe started to settle down. Apparently, the set was only a few streets down from the cafe so many people came from there to just get something hot to drink.
I decided to stock up on more coffee cups from the back since we were running low. Once I got the cups, I heard the bell ring meaning someone was ready to order.
"Coming!" I said but apparently they didn't hear me since they kept ringing the bell.
"I'm coming!" I repeated myself. Surely they heard me this time but I was wrong since they wouldn't stop ringing the bell. Damn can they not hear me call out to them?
Once I was out of the storage room, I noticed the irritating person was a guy who appeared to be a little younger than I was.
"Finally! I've been waiting for ages up here. Anyway, I want get a caramel macchiato to go." I didn't even get to apologize since this twat rudely interrupted me. Man, I've been working at this place for 6 months now and I've never met a single person to be as rude as this brown haired guy in my life.
"That'll be 3.59£.What's your name?"
"Pardon?" He seemed kinda offended once I asked him his name. Why would he look surprised?
"I need to put your name on the cup."
"Oh, uh Dan. Also how long is this going to take? I have places to be."
"Not long." Oh how I wanted to spit in his drink right now, but I'm not going to mainly because I'll get fired if the camera catches me.
"Here you go, one caramel macchiato. Have a good day." I honestly hope he gets ran over by car. Thankfully I won't be seeing him around anytime soon... or so I thought.
