7:15 "What can I get for you." The waiter asked Alex who was sitting at a small table in the coffee shop.

She looked at him. Pitch Black hair, tall, with Ocean Blue eyes very attractive . . . "Oh yeah just . . . just a medium llate please."

"Ok coming right up." The waiter said before leaving.

Alex took out a book and began reading.

A minute later the waiter came back with her Latte.

"Here you go miss."He said smiling and giving her drink.

"Thanks."

"No problem, The Davinci Code, nice book."

Alex looked at him.

"I didn't mean to get all in your business."

"No its fine, I started reading this after I heard about the movie, I guess Im pretty late huh."

"I didn't even see the movie."

"You didn't."

He sat down across from her. "No, but, I did read it." He said smiling.

"Well that makes me feel great, Im like the only one who didn't read it." She said before looking at him and giving him a flirtatious smirk.

The waiter gave Alex the same smile she had gave him.

"Since you read it, maybe you can tell me how it ends."

"Well if I tell you . . . Id have to kill you."The waiter said casually. They both smiled.

"Am I interrupting something?" Alex and the waiter looked up, Elliot was standing behind them.

"Hey Elliot." Alex said.

"I better get going. Nice talking to you." The waiter left.

"Sorry Im late, Had to make a stop." Elliot said as he sat down.

"Its ok."

"I see you made yourself occupied, flirting with that waiter."

"I wasn't flirting." She said blushing a little.

"Uh huh . . . So you said you wanted to talk about something?"

They talked for another hour or so then they went their separate ways . . .

"Eric."

"Look Alex."Eric got up and went over to Alex."I just want to talk to you."

"There's nothing to talk about."

"Look I said I was sorry."

"Sorry isn't good enough." Alex said. Eric tried to put his arm on her shoulder but she pushed him away."Don't touch me."

"Alex listen to me." He pleaded his voice louder.

"Just leave." She tried to get by Eric but he grabbed her arm and pushed her against the wall.

"Let go Eric." She said struggling.

"Can you just listen to me Alex ."

"Eric–

"See your not listening." He said letting her go.

"What Eric...What do you want to say to me!".

"Just forgive me please Alex , I never meant to hurt you."
