"Let's go Paula I want a coffee before we get to the restaurant. After yesterday's hangover, I need a strong one."
I rolled my eyes as I was dragged by my friend Isabela to get her coffee.
"We'll be late Isa, Marc will be upset and scold us" now it was she who rolled her eyes.
"If you hurry we won't be late. Move that beautiful voluptuous ass and walk." I guffawed throwing my head back.
"What?" she looks at me smiling. "That's right Paula, look at that ass." she tilted her head back to look at me.
"I don't know what you do without a boyfriend, if I were you I'd have a thousand men at my feet." I just shook my head.
"Isa, no one looks at me, I'm not pretty, stop talking nonsense."
"You're not what? You're crazy Paula, if you're not pretty then no one is. For God's sake, don't you look in the mirror? Don't you have one at home? If you don't, I'll lend it to you. I rolled my eyes at white, she's a hype.
"It's okay, walk, crazy blonde" I told her, taking her arm while I saw the blessed cafeteria in my field of vision, as if I had money to buy a coffee here every day.
"I'll buy you one, take it easy." she clarifies.
It is a very expensive coffee shop, but they really sell the most delicious coffees with donuts, at least once a month when we get our monthly salary, we come to buy one with Isa.
"I can afford an Isa coffee, it's not a big deal either." She hugged me leaving a kiss on my cheek.
Finally we entered the cafeteria where we had to make a line, not very long, thank God.
Isa was teasing me waiting behind me, she was very annoying, she looked like a little girl.
I switched places with her because it was really maddening, I passed behind her and she was standing in line in front of me.
"Bored." She complained and it was her turn to order, she placed her order and they delivered it to her, in this place everything was very fast, she stepped aside to wait away from me while I placed my order.
So I did, I just ordered a piece of black coffee, it was delicious.
"Thank you!" I exclaimed after paying and I turned around and as always I have bad luck for my misfortune, I collided with a more than giant body standing in front of me spilling my coffee all over his expensive and fine shirt and also on his suit, swallow dirt and spit on me far.
The man yelled shaking and I opened my eyes without blinking.
"You're stupid! Are you blind?" he yelled furiously and I swallowed hard.
"Excuse me sir, please forgive me" I repeated trying to solve the situation, I tried to clean it with my napkin but he pushed my hand away.
"Hey! What's wrong with him?" Isa shouted reaching where I was.
"It was an accident," declared my friend.
"Stay out of this." the man wiping himself angrily spat with a napkin he had taken from the counter.
"You should stop being so clumsy and watch where you're walking, do you realize the coffee was boiling?" The man was furious, his deep gray eyes exuded fury and I was speechless.
"It was… it was an accident." I stuttered seeing his shirt completely stained with him.
His eyes fixed on me for long seconds and he frowned. Everyone around us was looking puzzled at what had happened, even the young man behind the bar.
"Come on Paula, leave this crazy idiot talking to himself." declared my friend pulling me by the arm to get me out of the cafe.
But I thought it was over, but no, when I was trying to put down the coffee, a big hand grabbed my skinny arm.
He screams again and I shiver, it gives me goosebumps all over when he touches my skin, and I feel that tingling in my stomach.
The guy was looking at me annoyed, there was his frown on him again.
"Do you think I'll let you go just like that? I think you, miss, owe me something" said the man with a hoarse voice
"Do I owe you something?" I stuttered.
"This shirt cost over a thousand dollars and you ruined it."
What did she say, a thousand dollars? That's practically my salary for the month.
"What, what do you want me to do? I have no way of paying you, sir." I said and he let go of my arm blinking.
He smiled haughtily and looked me up and down.
"Sure, I don't even know what you're doing here, do you have how to pay for a coffee?" I swallowed hard, I felt a lump in my throat listening to him, I know I'm poor but he doesn't have to humiliate me like that.
"Look Mr. Elastic, whether or not we have money to buy a coffee here is none of your business, if that shirt costs more than a thousand dollars, surely it won't do you any good to buy another one or surely you have thousands lying around, why don't you you put your fucking shirt in your… “Isa!” I said to stop her big mouth.
"Nothing Paula, let me tell this arrogant man everything he deserves."
"No, let's go now." I said holding her hand, so we don't get into any more trouble, we don't know who this guy is and he definitely has money.
But what is beautiful about it is also arrogant and idiotic.
"This won't stay like this, miss." she said in a cautious tone, behind me feeling an electricity run through my body. It was like a threat.
Isa yelled at him again and I hastily refused.
"Why didn't you let me kick him in the balls Paula? He deserves it for an idiot. For God's sake, I don't know how there are such arrogant people in this world."
"Ok Isabela, walk, it was my fault, I spilled the coffee on him, I should have been more careful."
"Yes, aha, but you apologized and it should have ended there, you should have said that nothing happened and that's it, not continue with his speech that his shirt cost millions"
"Yeah, but it was my fault, period."
