5. Plan B

"Darn it!" I tiptoed over the cold supermarket shelf.

"Almost…" I could feel the edge of the box with the tips of my index finger.

'Damn it! Why does it have to be all the way at the end?'

I heard a husky chuckle and then a russet arm extended in front of my line of view.

"Here" Jacob easily grabbed the package I was reaching for and placed it on my hands.


His lips twitched slightly at my annoyed look.

"… bet these shelves were designed by giants" I said sourly under my breath, massaging my sore shoulder.

"Well. It isn't their fault you're small" He smiled.

"I aint small!" I felt like a pouting four-year-old "I'm 5'7" I stood as tall as I could just to prove my point.

"Really?" He teased again, towering me by the side.

"Huh, I was sure you were 5'2" Now he was just being a pain.

"Thank you, now if you excuse me…" I tried to sound annoyed but laughed when he whispered something like 'touchy, huh?'

He walked silently next to me as I made my way through the isles.

I was about to ask him if he was lost, but…

"So, did you have fun at the cliffs?" He blurted out, his face smooth as marble.

I noticed the little sting in his question even though he tried sounding nonchalant.

"Not really. I didn't go" I shrugged.

"What? Why? What happened?" he was looking straight at me, a hint of relief in his features.

"To be honest, I wasn't feeling that well…"

"Oh, how come?" he cocked a brow.

"Um…" I blushed "I ended up eating a whole pizza within a period of five minutes… it was just a stupid bet Linda and I made, but still, now I know better"

I heard him give out a barky laugh.

"It's not funny" I giggled.

"I still wanna go, though" I tried my luck.

"Well, you are one lucky girl" He took the basket from my hands and smiled "The guys and I are going diving this weekend; you could tag along if you like"

"Sure they wont mind?" I blushed a little.

"Nope, not at all"

"Cool, so sounds like a plan" Suddenly I felt happy.

We made it to the cashier and I paid for the items and then he walked me out to the parking lot.

"Hey, you didn't buy anything" I noticed his empty hands.

"Yeah, you're right" he said casual.

"Don't you want to go back…"

"Nope. I got what I wanted" He smiled stunningly and climbed onto his bike. "See ya, Nathaly"

His bike roared to life as I watched him ride away.

I couldn't help but smile.

Plan B was definitively coming out better than any other.
