”Ill just wait this out and observe for now. ” I headed towards a restaurant and reserved a seat for wo persons in the dining area constructed on the open roof. I take a deep breath in the cool and refreshing breeze as a waiter directs me to a seat. I put the chow mein on the table as I witness a direct view of the fountain and the couple standing near it. ”Are they just out here on a date? ” The guy standing next to Isabella was dressed in a formal wardrobe head to toe, and from the way he was putting his arms around her it would seem they were closely associated.
”What would you like to order, sir? ” The waiter was standing next to me the whole time I stared at the fountain, talk about being devoted. ”Oh I am waiting for a friend, so Ill just have a glass of water for now. ” The waiter gave me a disappointed look and a suspicious stare as he went down the stairs. Should I let Isabella know I was here, or should I wait for the guy to leave? What if they just spend the whole night together? I don have time for this drama I just need my headphones. But why did Isabella cover for my name when I called her, at the very least I should somehow get Isabella to know that I am here.
The restaurant was facing the guys back and Isabella was exactly in front of him. If I text or call her again, he will probably be vary and go through her logs. ”hmmm a way to get her attention without him noticing me. ” I opened the flashlight on the back of my phone and waved it high in the air. Isabella was quick to notice the signal as our eyes met from afar. After being embarrassed in a busy restaurant I quickly put my phone away before the guy could catch a glimpse of my stupidity. ”Sir, refrain from any kinds of indecent activities in this restaurant. Oh and heres your glass of water. ” I didn even notice of what looked like to be a 50 year old man dressed in full black holding a glass of water, was he an assassin in his past life!?
I choked halfway while I was drinking water…. ”wait why is Isabella directing him to this restaurant?? ” Wait wait hold on a minute, what is Isabella up to? Hes going to notice me and won that put Isabella in a pinch? Meanwhile I was praying to god they dine in on the ground floor, voices coming from the staircase reached my ears. ”A table for two please. ” ”Sure sir, follow me to the top. ” The same waiter emerged from the end of the staircase, leading the couple holding hands behind him. Don come here, don come here, don come here, don come here.
I stared at the fountain thinking what would I do if they were to come up here, I mean I can jump from the roof and make a run for it, the fall won be much. I start to hear voices of seats getting pulled right next to me but wait. What am I being so worried for I didn commit a crime, I don even know anything about Isabella in the first place so why am I panicking so much. If only she didn hide who I was from the start, I would have just made a quick greeting, took my headphones and left.
I turned my face back again to see what happened to the lovey dovey couple and…they were sitting on the table right behind mine! I could hear their voices clear as the day, and it looked like Isabella still pretended to not know me. WHAT DO I DO? Actually never mind the headphones I am just going back home. ”Isabella, why were you so persistent in coming here though? They serve more delicious and rich food at my place, we should have gone there. ” Okay wait what is this guy up to. ”Well you see Tyler, I came to this place with my parents around 8 years ago, and it really brings back memories. ”
Tyler huh? And I am pretty sure she just lied about visiting this restaurant 8 years ago, well I mean this place was just built only 2 years ago. Tyler should see through her assuming he lives somewhere around this place. ”OH I see, well if thats the case then why don we have a drink and enjoy this moment. ”Yep he didn know, he must be from some rich household.
”Sir, would you like to order something else? ” This waiter is getting on my nerves…. He just pops out of thin air. ”Well it seems like my friend will be a little late, I would do with a cup of tea till then. ” The waiter leaves with a disappointed expression again down the staircase. Another waiter has already taken an order from Tyler, what am I supposed to do? Wait until they are finished eating and just ask for the headphones when they are leaving? Yes that seems to be the best course of action here.
”So Tyler, do you know a girl named Samantha by any chance? ” A bottle of wine slips as I hear a loud thud and pieces of glasses shattering as if someone punched the table. ”Oh um.. forgive my clumsiness. My hand hit the table while I was taking out my napkin…oh and what was that about…a girl um.. named Samantha? No I don think I know any Samantha. Yes I don . ” The two waiters rush up towards the table to pick up the broken glasses and wipe the floor. hmmmm whos this girl Isabella mentioned? And judging by Tylers reaction there seems to be a connection, but what exactly is it?
