I walk through the city looking for 'Help Wanted' signs, but can't find any. Nobody wanted me. It was starting to get dark anyway. I should just call Ceviche. So I took out my phone and dialed Ceviche's number and waited.
Ring Ring Ring
Ring Ring Ring
Twice. Three more rings and I'll have to leave a message.
Ring Ring Ri- "Hello?"
"Hey Ceviche." I said in the 'can I stay at your house' voice we use on eachother.
"Did Mung and Truffles finally kick you out?" he asked in a worried voice. As you can imagine now, he's my best friend.
"Sort of," I started. "Since I keep eating the orders, I have to pay off $300. And it was an awkward moment, Truffles said I needed a job. And so I wouldn't eat anymore orders, a couple hours after that, they kicked me out."
"Oh, that's rough." He answered.
"Yeah," I reply. "So can I stay at your house for awhile?" I asked hopefully.
"Sure Chowder. Come on over. I just made some Chicken."
"Thanks Ceviche. Bye."
And so I made my way through the lonely street to Ceviche's house.
"Thank you so much Marmalade. I'd be homeless right now if you weren't my friend." I say to Marmalade before we go to bed.
"No problem Panini. You're my best friend, it's the least I can do." She relpied.
"Hopefully school is better than this day. Anyway, goodnight."
We turned off the lights and went to bed.
"Don't leave me," I said in a silky smooth voice. "Not now…"
Now I started to cry.
"I have to." he said. "It's the only way you can be safe."
"I'll come back. I promise."
"You better." My voice broke and we started to hug. Then he kissed my forehead and said "You are my life…"
Then I woke up.
