"Lacey!" I yelled as I continued to run after her. Damn this woman could run, I whispered under my breath as I continued to run faster after her.
Finally after probably running for thirty minutes lacey stopped at a park and she leaned against the couch and fell on her ass hugging her legs to her and she leaned her head on her knees.
I stopped a few feet away from her and walked slowly taking deep breaths. I sat down beside her and just sat there. Just as I was about to say something I looked at her and decided that it was best if I didn't say anything so instead I just sat next to her and waited to see what she would do.
Honestly, I didn't even think that she knew that I was there but then she suddenly put her arms around arm and just leaned her head on my arm and soon I felt her hot tears sliding down my arm.
Again I didn't know how long we sat there but eventually she sat up and looked away from me. I think she was making sure she had her make up cleaned before turning around to look at me.
"Are you okay?" I asked her as she looked at me.
"Yea." Lacey said giving me a small smile with a very depressed look in her eyes.
"No you aren't…"
"I am you don't have to worry about me." Lacey said standing up quickly and walking away from me.
"Hey hold up now." I said walking after her.
"What do you want from me Colby?" Lacey asked me as she turned around to look at me with an angry look in her face.
"Hey I'm not the bad guy here."
"Ugh." Lacey said and turned around again.
I stood there and looked at her back for a second. I mean what the hell was she thinking. I left the party to come after her and make sure she was okay and all she is doing now is ignoring me. I was ready to turn around and leave her all by her self but even I wasn't that big of an asshole, so I did the only logical thing…I followed her.
"Lacey!" I screamed after her again and luckily this time she stopped and waited till I caught up.
"Why are you still here Colby?"
"Because I'm not that big of an ass no matter if I may act like it." I said looking at her giving her a small smile.
"Strangely enough I believe you." Lacey said looking at me.
"Ha-ha good cause I didn't run after you for nothing." I said chuckling.
Lacey stayed silent for a while not looking at me but she continued to look at me and then look down from me.
"Why what?" I asked confused.
"Why did you come after me."
I stayed silent for a little bit trying to figure out why I did come after her. I mean I didn't have to, no one told me too, and it wasn't like she was my girlfriend or anything so why did I come after her.
"I have no idea." I said smiling lightly at her.
"Strangely enough I believe that too."
"Ha-ha I'm glad you do." I said and we stayed silent for a little bit shivering in the cool weather.
"So um where are we going?" lacey finally asked breaking the silence and making us burst into laughter.
"I have no idea, where would you be right now?"
"Home or with Carl.
"Hmm well Carl is out and I don't think you want to go home…so how about we go have some coffee."
"Oh I know this nice place." I said and grabbed her hand pulling her along with me.
We walked and ran back to Carla's house. Luckily for us Carl's truck was gone so I told Lacey to stay there and I went inside grabbed Carla's car key and went back outside where Lacey was waiting for me. Knowing which car I had picked I walked directly to the truck and opened the door for Lacey and climbed in.
"Whose car is this?"
"Carla." I said and smiled as I put some country music on.
"Oh god what is this?"
"This my dear is country music." I said smiling at Lacey and the look on her face.
"Hmm yea please change the station."
"Not happening, so deal with it." I said smiling at her.
"Oh god I don't know how you can call this music."
"Oh shut up plus we're here." I said getting out the car.
I smiled as I went inside and heard her yelling at me. I mean I guess I was being mean for leaving her alone in this part of the neighborhood I mean it was after all the barrio.
"We're eating here?" Lacey asked me in a whisper as she looked around her and noticed that there were only guys with tattoos and mean looking stares.
"Hey chiquita how about you leave your amiga here for a tough man like me eh?" One guy asked as he looked at Lacey.
"Um I um well I um…" Lacey stuttered and stopped altogether as the guy stood up and walked to her.
"Come on chula, I know you want this." The guy said as he got all in her face.
"Um sir I'm going to have to ask you too….ahhhhhhhhh!" Lacey screamed as he grabbed her hand and moved it to his stomach.
"Come on Fernando she's had a bad day." I finally said putting my arm around her waist.
"Ah come on Colby you never let us have fun."
"Man you lying." I said as I gave Fernando a hug.
"True but not as much fun as I wish I could have." Fernando said winking at Lacey who was looking at me with a very angry look you could even say lethal.
"Wait you know this guy?"
"This guy has a name." Fernando said moving closer to her causing her to move closer to me.
"I'm sorry Fernando." Lacey finally said.
"It's okay chiquita." Fernando said looking at her and smiling.
"But you." Lacey suddenly said pointing at me.
"Me?" I asked pointing at me.
"Yes you, what the hell were you thinking making me go through this after you knew what kind of night I've been having?" Lacey said grabbing a newspaper nearby and rolling it then hitting me with it on the arm.
"Hey chill out Lacey." I said taking the newspaper from her and tossing it to Fernando.
"Ugh whatever." Lacey said walking to an empty table in the corner.
"Hey give me two coffees." I called out as I walked to the table.
I sat down across from Lacey and looked at her as two cups off coffee were set on the table. I took mine added sugar and cream and sipped on it as I continued to look at her.
"Your coffee is getting cold." I said and watched as she sighed and turned to look at her coffee added sugar and cream and then began to drink it.
"So you aren't going to talk to me?" I asked as I finished my coffee and motioned for some more as well as two brownies.
"Yes." Lacey said but still didn't look at me.
"Well that's good since you are paying the bill." I said smiling and smiled even wider as she looked up at me with a shocked expression on her face.
"Oh you're excused." I said smiling at her wider.
"I swear to god I am about to kill you." Lacey said looking at me.
"Okay but just do it after I get a taste of you." I said smiling wider as her cheeks turned extremely red.
"What the hell is your…" Lacey began but didn't get to finish.
I mean maybe I was tired of her complaining or her talking or maybe I was just tired of not being my player self or something but next thing I knew I was leaning over the table and kissing her passionately, that is before we were rudely interrupted.
