The New Shop in Town, and Kath

by Audree E | Score: 2850

“Hi! Welcome to my antique store!” I say. I am practicing for my grand opening to my new shop! The opening is in, I think, four days, 9 hours, and around fifty-three minutes; but whose counting? I’m so crazy excited! I have a section of just old books, some are in French and some are in Latin! Do you know how hard it is to find books in Latin??

It’s the next day and I just opened up the shop. It’s so cute, I love it so much!! It’s not one of those poorly-lit dusty, and genuinely gross shops, its brightly lit and its very colorful, I’m always dusting because if it’s not clean it’ll kill me.

It’s opening day, seven minutes till opening, I’m not saying that I was expecting a line to get in but I at least thought I would see some cars come and park pretty close.
Fourteen minutes later and no one is here. I’m all alone. I should probably give it more time but I can’t I promoted this thing like a high school fight. I’m kind of disappointed. I think I’ll dust until someone shows up.
“Lizzy!” My best friend Kath said. Yes, Kath, not Kathie or Kathrine,  just Kath. “Ooo! Dusting the old rusty axe I see!”
“Hi Kath!” I giver her a quick hug and continue dusting. “This is just a guitar Kath.”
“Still it’s a crazy axe.”
“How is school and how long are you in town for? And how was Italy!”
“Doing my adventures and studying the psychological differences between countries is kind of boring, but its paid for so I do it!”
“C’mon Kath you
