When he walked outside, he noticed she was waiting beside his car. He rolled his eyes and went to the passenger side and unlocked the door. Once he got in he unlocked the other door and she jumped in way to quickly for his liking. On the way to the mall she talked the whole entire time. He found hisself tuning her out. Day dreaming of Tracy, wondering if she had come back to his apartment looking for him only to find he wasnt there. He'd hate for her to show up and he missed her. But she was a ghost, couldn't she be anywhere. Would she be able to find him. Suddenly he started to wonder about many things. Could she be in the car with them right now. Was she able to be near him without being seen by him, without him being able to sense her presense. But he quickly wiped that thought away. Seeing how she acted earlier when Melanie had called. He'd definately know if she were around. He was glad that the drive to the mall was a short one. He felt uncomfortable being alone in a closed space with this woman. Once they were inside the mall, he walked fast with his hands in his pockets. Melanie stuggling to keep up. Finally he stopped at this Jewelry Kiosk in the middle of the mall.
"Why are you going so fast..it wouldn't hurt you to slow down", Melanie said as she gasp to catch her breath.
"Do you nag everyone you know this much", he asked her.
"No, only the people I like", she said with a smirk.
When the sales rep came to the counter he handed him a receipt.
"I came to pick up a ring".
He paid the guy the rest of the money and quickly put the ring in his pocket. Melanie was looking at him strangely. He ignored her and turned to leave. She followed quickly behind him, faster than before, as if she'd caught her second wind.
"Who's the ring for", she asked.
"Dont worry about it, its none of your buisness."
