Ellis: I look forward to it.

Me: Are you free tonight?

Ellis: Unfortunately, I’m not. I have dinner with a client. Tomorrow?

Me: Sounds great. Dinner at my place? 7:00?

Ellis: Perfect. Until tomorrow.

Now all I had to do was figure out what to make for dinner. I checked the time, it was after nine, so it was safe to call mom. She often slept in on Saturday, well her version of sleeping in anyway, 8:00 was sleeping late to her.

“Hello Eve,” Mom said after a few rings. “How are you this morning? Did you sleep okay?”

“Hey mom. I’m great. I fell asleep on the couch, but I still had a good sleep. Guess what? I got a text from Ellis this morning. He said he enjoyed our time together and wanted to try again. So, I got brave and invited him over for dinner. He’s busy tonight but we’re getting together tomorrow night.”

“Oh, that’s wonderful Eve. I’m so happy for you. So, does that mean you’ve come to terms about the whole Jackson thing?”

“I think so mom. I mean it’ll take some getting used to, but I really like him, and he seems to like me. He was so great last night, patient and understanding. That’s what I need in my life. So … what are you doing today?”

“No plans so far. What did you have in mind?”

“I thought you and I could go shopping and you could help me figure out what to make Ellis for dinner?”

“Of course, I’ll go with you. I’ll be there in an hour to pick you up.”

“Thanks mom, you’re the best. See you in a bit. Bye.”

“Bye honey.”

I jumped in the shower and got dressed. I ate a granola bar for breakfast and decided to read while I waited for mom. I was having trouble concentrating because my thoughts kept going back to Ellis, so I put my eReader down. I picked up my phone and went over our text exchange again. He couldn’t have dinner with me because he was meeting a client. I wondered what he did for a living. It seemed like he worked a lot. Maybe he was in marketing or advertising. I was going to ask him when we had dinner. My phone chimed with a text. It was mom, she was downstairs waiting for me.

“I miss having a car,” I told her as we drove down the street.

“I’m sure the insurance company will figure things out soon. But until then I’m happy to be your chauffeur.”

“I know mom, it just feels like I’m a pain in the ass.”

“Never. I enjoy any time we spend together.”

We got to the grocery store and started walking up and down the aisles. I really had no clue what I wanted to make. We tossed a few ideas around and I eventually settled on steak, twice baked potatoes, and asparagus. I didn’t own a grill, but I planned on making the steak the way dad does when it’s too cold out to grill. We got all of the ingredients I needed and checked out.
