Sasha sighed. Yes it was true he wanted to spruce up the place since it still looked like a pile of shit Satan himself crapped out.
"I really can’t win against you, can I?" He replies and reluctantly took the money.
Armin smiled and picked up his cup. ‘Ill be in my usual spot!…if you need me just call’ he smiled waving as he walked to his seat. He sat down and tied up his hair to begin working on his laptop.
Sasha closed the register and headed to the back of the cafe before taking one last look at Armin. Man he was attractive. His bustlin’ employees gave him teasing looks coming back from the front.
"I’ll cover the front boss." Karen reported, obviously stifling a laugh the way her jaw clenched and her cheeks puffed a bit.
The door to the back kitchen swung closed behind her and the other employees still gave him those looks.
"What?" He asked. Mike, his Team Lead, shook his head.
"Nothing boss. Nothing at all."
"Whatever." Sasha grumbled. "Back to work!"
Armin looked towards the kitchen after hearing some yelling and smiled lightly going back to look at his paper. After about an hour or so he yawned and looked at his watch. He yelped and started packing his things.
'Sasha I gotta go! See you later!' He yelled waving as he opened the door and ran to the college. He smiled as he sat down out of breath in his seat.
"Later Armin!" Sasha called out as he brought out a batch of pastries from the back. Luckily the shop wasn’t busy yet and he was able to take his time getting the pastries and sandwiches out in the glass case. He let his mind wander to what Armin did while he was working the shop.
It was obvious he went to school with the textbooks he always had on him but what else did he do? What kind of friends did he have? It became evident to Sasha that he really didn’t know much about Armin. He was just the regular in the shop and he knew nothing more than that about him. He made a mental note to give him a text during his lunch break.
Armin yawned during the early afternoon lecture and looked out the window. He wondered what Sasha was doing. Well he knew he was baking but he really wanted to know what the other was thinking what Sasha thought about to get him through the day. After awhile the bell rang for lunch and Armin quickly ran out like he always had and ran outside to sit under the shade tree.
It was a slow day. Not many people came into the shop that day and it was fine for Sasha. These days were fun days for he and his employees. They ended up spending the morning playing mop hockey. Sasha had only lost one game before. He always thought it was because he was “the boss” that his employees let him win all the time.
Lunch came around and Sasha decided to take his break and put Karen back at the front of the shop. He went to his office and dug through his sweatshirt pockets for his phone. He panicked when he didn’t find it and retraced his steps that morning. He nearly smacked his head on his desk at his stupidity at leaving it at home. He grabbed his car keys and told Karen he was taking a longer lunch to go get his phone.
Traffic was dreadful at noon. Everyone was hitting the streets and it took him 30 minutes to get to his apartment. He opened his door and snagged his phone sitting on the night stand. He unlocked it and no new alerts popped up. Thankfully no one tried to get a hold of him. He pulled up Armin’s contact and shot him a quick text.
Hey! How’s your day going? On lunch
Armin felt his phone buzz and opened it seeing te text from Sasha. He smiled and texted back
Hey! I’m sitting down while I wait for my last class how’s lunch so far?
He sent the messaged and waited picking up his book again to read. Not even moments later some jocks came over and grabbed Armins book. ‘Wow can you be any more pathetic? A book on jellyfish really? What are some geek who likes that tentacle crap?’ They laughed throwing the book at the blonde hitting him in the head.
Ow! Hey leave me alone geez..’ He said picking up his book and phone as he tried to walk away only to be stopped.
'Kid I'm short on money give me yours and I'll forget what you did just now' he said with a smirk grabbing Armins shirt collar lifting him off te ground a little.
Just went on lunch. Forgot my phone at my apartment. Went to pick it up. Want me to join you for lunch?
Sasha hit send and popped open the driver’s side door of his 4 door, 4 cylinder car. Sasha didn’t receive an answer right away like he usually did. Did his last class start already? Maybe he just didn’t hear his phone. Sasha waited a few more minutes before punching in the nearest college into his GPS and driving off.
