Chapter 7 (All that chocolate)
I walked in on Oscars physical therapy session and when I did I felt the full force of a two year old bulldog barrel down on me, usually I
don't like that but considering his situation I was ecstatic. His butt shook as his tail wagged; I hadn't realized how much we had missed each other
until this little rendezvous. With slobber up and down my face I push Oscar off of me. I only have enough time to pet and play with Oscar for a few minuets
before I have to leave and go back to the station.
I walk into the station and find that there is a message from Christopher. Knowing what he was calling about I pick up the phone and dial his number,
"Hi Christopher, um this is Millie".
"Oh hey Millie, how are you?"
"I'm fantastic, how about you?"
"I'm doing great".
"So I received the message that you called me, what for?" I just couldn't help but smile a little bit.
"I have to know where it is you are going to take me".
"Now if a guy wanted to surprise a girl would he tell her where they are going?"
"Well of course not".
"Therein lies my reasoning".
"Alright I'll give you a hint. There's a huge celebration when it opens".
"Wow here I thought I couldn't be more curious, but whoop there it is. One more hint?"
"No amount of chocolate chips could make me tell you where we are going on Saturday".
"Not even a million?"
"A million chocolate chips is an undesirable amount of………… chocolate chips".
"And here I thought chocolate in any amount is desirable to a woman".
"Well that's a bit if a general statement don't you think?"
"Only if you believe so".
"I do believe so".
"Then I guess it is. My apologies. Now where are we going Saturday?"
"You are relentless".
"I prefer curious".
"I'm not telling you".
"I have to get back to work now Christopher, but thank you for entertaining me".
"That it is my job to do".
"What is that supposed to mean?"
"Tell me what we are doing Saturday and I'll tell you what it means".
"I guess I'll have to wait until Saturday then".
"Only if you so choose".
"I do so choose".
"Have a nice day at work my mysterious lady", he then hung up leaving a smile on my face and wonder in my mind.

Chapter 9 (Renaissance fun)
Christopher walked up behind me, "Are you ok?"
"Are you sure that it's not your taste?"
"Well it's that, but more so that it's expensive. I can't afford it".
"Oh well ok then", I could tell that he wasn't buying into my lie but I didn't want to tell him the real reason.
We walked away from the necklace shop. And as we were walking away I spotted a show that I had never seen there before called the mud pit show that was going
to be starting soon. I asked him if he want to see the show and he said sure. That show was hilarious at one point in the beginning that went like this.
Player 1: We are going to split this room into two teams the Trojans and the Greeks.
Player 2: Alright I'm going to split down the middle.
Player 1: You do that.
As the second player was drawing an imaginary line down the center of the room he walks up to a wooden post with a woman sitting up against it.
Player 2: It's not working there's a woman sitting right in the middle.
Player 1: So let it.
Player 2: No because the line bisexualizes her.
Player 1: You mean bisects.
Player 2: Isn't that what I said?
Player 1: I don't know but she is now the most popular person in the tent.
The entire show was a riot making us both laugh so hard we almost fall out of our seats.
After watching the show Christopher and I realized just how hungry we were so we went and got some fish and chips and sat at a table.
"So Millie you know that I have a cat, do you have any pets".
"Sadly no, but there is this dog at the pound that I have become rather attacked to. His name is Oscar and he is a bulldog".
"How did you come across him?"
"Some teenagers tied him to the back of their truck and dragged him behind. I was the one who was called to the scene".
Christopher got a sad look on his face, "Oh my God".
"Yeah, that's my job".
"How can people do that?"
"I don't know, some people are just sick".
After a long aquard silence he changes the subject, "So have you decided between Christopher and Criss".
"I decided Christopher".
"Mind telling me why?"
"Well I know Christopher, but I don't know Criss yet".
"That's a very intelligent way of putting it".
"Thank you I guess".
Christopher kept my gaze for a moment before saying, "You have beautiful eyes".
I smiled at him, "Thank you".
Christopher looked away as a breeze came, man he smells good. We sat and finished our lunch in peace stealing glances every once and a while. I don't know
what it is about him but I feel so comfortable. Usually around guys I'm shy and don't know what to say. When I do talk it's usually random stupid
stuff, not many guys find that endearing so it's hard for me to keep a guy. I hope that I can keep him, I mean if don't know that much about him but he
makes me feel at ease; so I would like to see where this goes.
"Millie I'm done let me get that for you", Christopher took my plate for me and threw it away.
As we got up to leave we heard music playing and then we saw what seemed like a Renaissance parade marching down the walkway. It was a semi nerdy little parade
but I found it entertaining. After it went by Christopher and I walked over to this knick-knack shop. It had candles, Ostridge Feathers, little leather
pouches, hats, and some other things. Criss put on a Wizards hat and started doing some entertaining magic tricks. He ended up buying the hat for laughs. This
man is bewitching me and it has only taken a week starting with his inquiry of where I was going to take him. We were in that shop for an hour with him doing
his magic tricks, but I didn't mind I was enjoying it. He finished and we walked a couple of shops down into a shop where you can buy those spheres for
what is called sphere play.
"Christopher I have always wanted to buy one of these and I finally have the money to buy one".
"Let's stop in then".
I clapped my hands, "Yay".
"Hey I might even get one myself. Isn't that what Jarith in The Labyrinth did?"
"Yes it is, that's how I got interested in it", we walked into the shop and both of us started to look at the heavy glass balls. I never knew
that there were so many different sizes, but I guess it makes sense I mean you have to have one that's the right size for your hand.
Christopher picked up one of the larger red balls, "I wonder what size would be right for me".
"Well if you ask me that one seems to be a good size for your hand".
Someone who worked there walked up to us, "May I help you?"
Christopher answered, "Yes we would like to know what sizes would be ideal for our hands".
"Well sir the one you have in your hands is the right size. And for you ma'am let's see how this one fits", the sales person picked up one
and set it in my hand. "Yep I guessed that one right".
I looked at the sales person, "Do you have any in purple?"
"I believe that we do hold on let me look around for you".
Christopher turned to me, "Purple?"
I shrugged, "It's my favorite color".
"Never would have guessed that".
After the sales person returned with the purple one; he began to show us how to the move where it goes from the back of your fingers to the palm side of your
fingers. And we both did a little practicing, he was way better than me maybe he can show me before or after tonight's movie.
After we checked out I looked at him, "Hey Um I would like to get back home so that I can get my house ready for the movie tonight".
"Alright well first I would like to see if there's a chainmail shop around here. I have always wanted to check out chainmail up close".
"Well I'm surprised that you didn't see that one by that shop with the Gypsy Scarves. Let's head back that way".
We walked into the chainmail shop, and I saw this chainmail bra. I put it up to my chest and looked at Christopher, "Hey Christopher how do I look?"
He just looked at me took a deep breath and turned away. That told me something very interesting about him, which made me giggle. I did some more looking
around after that, when Criss walked up to me and said that he was ready to go.
After we walked out of the shop I looked down I saw that he had a bag in his hand, "What did you buy yourself?"
"Well it's not what I bought myself, it's something I bought you" Christopher reached into the bag and pulled out the Gypsy Scarf that I was
admiring earlier. I started to tear up and threw my arms around his neck to give him the biggest hug I think I have ever given.
He whispered in my ear, "What did I do?"
I pulled away, wiped my tears, and took the scarf out of his hands, "It's nothing really but ummm my dad used to call me his little butterfly".
"You are the only guy who has come here with me, I mean sure you were kind of tricked into coming here, but you didn't act bummed out thank you".
I lifted up the scarf, "You have no idea what this means to me".
Christopher gave me a hug and kissed me on the cheek.
