Penny was young, slight;y shy, and starting her new life of work. She was selling elemant flowers in the corner of the town. Quiet, but gets pleany of bisness.
One cloudy day she gets to work onlyto find out they are out for the storm. Thunder goes off behind her.
She quickly runs to the nearest diner. She had only ran in the rain for about 15 seconds, but she was soaked. Annoyed she sat st the end of the diner, and used the napin to wipe her face, shortly after she ordered some food.
She Pulled out a book, and hairband. Hair went up, book opened. She was dripping on the floor,but her mind was now sucked into a fantasy.
A man came rushing in. He had a hoodie on and quickly sat at Penny's table.
She put her book down and looked at the man. He turned to her and took his hood off. He locked eyes with her, and smiled.Penny could tell he looked panicked, he was panting hard.
"Hey!" He noded his head with the hey, with a bad boy smile, one eyeb.row arched.
"Sorry im late."
Penny just stared, she was in shock.
"Ya! I got held up by some really upset guy. I kinda got into it but before i kew it, lost track of time."
He reagusted himself, and grabbed a menu, still had a smile on his face.
"I knew some shit like this would happen. I'v been looking foward to this all week."
He stared out the window, it was like he was looking for something. HE called the waitress over and ordered some food. Penny opened her mouth to talk.
"Dang your more beauiful then he said."
She blushed mid comment. He looked at her up, and down. Then turned back to her. He softly spoke.
"I mean damn your beauiful."
"Once again im so sorry im late uhh?"
Penny was staring at the floor, he face was rose red.
"Ya! your name is wendy right?"
She b.roke from her bubble.
His face went into shock. It was awarded for a minute.
Penny put her hands together in her lap, and looked at the floor. Outside the diner a few men came running by. They scanned the diner, then ran off the other way yelling. The man looked up at penny and relaxed himself in the seat.
"Well i'v embearessed myself today."
She looked off the floor at him. He did a deep sigh.
"My friend set me up on a date with a girl named Wendy here. I thought you were her cuase your the only lone girl sitting here."
Penny stares at him. The sun had come out, and all the colors were more clear. She tought to herself how clean, and cut this man had looked, his hair was red fire. He had a mysterious feel to him. She stared. They locked eyes.
"And i thought i was running late......Looks like she didnt even show."
The quiet came again.
"Well shit, uhhh,"
He held his hand to her.
She grabbed his hand. She had no fear.
"Are you waitting on anyone Penny?"
She took a second.
He smiled warmly at her.
"Can i have b.runch with you, since i already ordered. I'll pay!"
It took a long minute before she anwsered. She had a pep, and a shy face the whole time.
The time went by along with the rains. Alot of time went by because of the talk that seem to last. By only looking out the window they noticed. Ego pulled out some pay and waitted to walk out with Penny. She hurried to pack up her thing, and put on her coat.
"I didnt realize it was that later, it seemed so short."
"Ya...i guess thats what happens when it a good time.."
He was holding the door open, looking around the area. Looking for something. She made it out the door and went to say good bye to him.
"Thank you....For the date." She said with confdence.
"Hmm..ya, ya" Puase for secoud. "Ya a awesome date, and day, lucky."
"Alright thanks." Penny turned to leave.
"Wait! You dont wanna do this again?"
She slightly tilted her head, with a confussed faced.
Ego shifted his weight around.
"Ya. Let meet here tomarrow morning, Second Sun."
He nodded and left. Penny could see the fire red hair in her head. She tought to herself the whole way home, He's new here, Onlt here for 2 Pull moons,He is hot, he called me bueatiful, What are the chances of this, He seems so mysterious...something. Im going to see him again in the morning!
"I gotta tell Ade, and Beth!"
When she reached home she went to Ades room, and tapped on the door. She could bearly hold her smilewhile waitting. The door opened slightly to reveal Ades face,but her boby was covered by the rest of the door.
"I have a date tomarrow, and i had one today with a guy named Ego, and he was s- "
"Date?! Get in here!"
She threw herself on her bed, and took a deep ( )eath in.
"Ade...I got a date...Its finally happening."
Ade just smiled, and giggled at the joy, and pure happyness pouring out of Penny.
"With who? How did it happen? Where? Is he cute?"
"His name is Ego....it..it was like.."
She took a minute to collet her thought. Ade dressed herself.
"I was stuck at the Glow Diner, just being to myself, and he just comes in and sits at my table. He thought i was his blind date his friend set him up with"
"Wait? He was meeting a blind date? Did she show up later?"
"Thats the thing Ade...she never showed, he thought i was the girl named Wendy. He called he beatiful, and Pretty."

"Oh im sorry i'll leave you alone."
"He already ordered food before i could say anything, andhe offered to pay. Plus he told me he was new around, He's only been here for a couple weeks...He wants to meet up again tomarrow."
Ade got finished dressing, and they left her room. They made their way to the kitchen, and Ade started pulling food out to cook. Penny hopped in the bar stolls to face Ade.
"So Tell me about him. What does he look like?"
She stopped. Ade waitted, waitted.
"Really red hair."
"Well it wasent so much as his looks that what got me..It was.."
Ade interrutped her.
"It was that he sat down at your table, and very confenitly had lunch with you.."
The room was quiet, Then Ade let out a sigh.
"Its fine Ade. I had a good time."
"You know me Pen! If something sounds off..You know."
Penny tied her hair up in a ponytail.
"All honesty Ade I fel good today, He made me feel good."
"And your going to chase that feeling?"
A chill started to fill the room. She was quiet, in deep thought. Ade stared.
"Alright but from big sister, not MOM! Im not your mom. Sister be careful."
They both laughted. Then the door opened, Beth, and Mark came in, Beth was holding 5 big bags, and in the other hand a bottle. Marks arm was wrapped up, and face bandaged. Ade ran over to help Beth with the bags, and Mark took the bottle from her hands and opened it.
"Cup!" Beth yelled.
He rolled his eyes, Penny grabbed a cup for her and Mark. They both poured a cup.
"What did you get this time Beth? Plaese tell me there are shoes in there! I really need some new ones."
They pulled out new tops, pants, dresses, shoes, and jewlery. Then she pulled out cake and cookies in the last bag. They were warmto the touch.
