==========Chapter 6 - Susanita==========I sat down in the park that Mr. Stroker and I found that afternoon. I only had a few moments to admire whatwas left of the sunset when the new ring tone I just set up that evening started to sing in my pocket. I didn'teven check the caller ID to see who it was, since he was the only one that had that new ring now."Hello," I automatically said."Hello David," he answers back. "I'll be leaving in about twenty minutes. That should give you enough time toget to Susanita about the same time I do," he explains."Ok. I'll be waiting," I tell him."Ok," he answers back before hanging up. I look across the street at the street lamp as it started to get brighterin response the the night that was closing in on it. As I turned away from the light to see who was around andwhat they looked like, I wondered again if I shouldn't just meet him at the restaurant like he was expecting meto, but I just sat there. Looking at others as they went out for the night also. Some of them traded in their suitesfrom something far more comfortable, like jeans and a tee, while others were more dressed up for the few highend places around town.I went the middle ground since I wasn't all that sure how I was suppose to be dressed. I figured that I was safein my dark solid coloured jeans, collared white shirt, with cuffs, with my only jacket. My shoes were a lostcause, but at least my jacket seemed to have matched everything. And by match I mean it was black.I stood up and ran a hand through my hair as I really considered going to the restaurant now and meeting himthere.
What would meeting him here do for either one of us?
I asked as I looked in the direction where Susanitawas suppose to be."David?" Mr. Stroker's voice asked from behind of me. I felt like I failed something before I put a smile on myface and turned around to face him."Hi," was all I could think of saying to him. He looked me over as he came closer and I just put my hands in mypockets."Why are you here?" he asks when he stopped a few feet away from me. I was never good at telling lies so Inever really tried."I was waiting for you," I confessed. As I said it, I sounded worst than I thought I could. I groaned and he lookedat me oddly if not concerned."Well it's a nice surprise," he commented after a while. "But we should get going, or we will be late for ourreservations," he informs me."Reservations?" I ask him as he starts to move away. I catch up with him as I think of another question to askhim. "They won't make me get a tie would they?" I asked as we stopped at the end of the block and waited fora car to pass.
