The next following day was the start of the weekend. As I was happy to sleep in for a few more hours, Jacob woke me up.
“Wake up lazy woman,” he opens my door and I suddenly open my eyes. Does this dude have no manners to point where he cant knock on my door?
“I’M AWAKE!” I pull the covers over my head to cover the light that was coming out of the window. Like he didn’t hear me, he protested.
“Come on, Molly,” he takes a breath, “we have to go to the supermarket and get food. I can only make one meal with what we have right now. If it weren’t for you eating anything, we wouldn’t have this problem.”
“Hey!” I suddenly sit up on the bed. I might as well get ready and go with him because I won’t go back to bed after this intrusion.
When we got to the supermarket, Jacob went straight to the vegetables section and started to pick at the green and red bell peppers. As I wanted to be useful too, I went over to the carrots and started picking the nice looking ones I saw.
“That’s not good,” Jacob walked towards to me, took my bag of carrots, and dumped the carrots back where they came from.
“What do you mean? They look good to me,” I say as I stared at the carrots.
Jacob shook his head and questioned me, “Have you ever picked vegetables before?” I started to blush.
“Maybe but I don’t get why those are bad?”
“You have to thoroughly look through the carrots. Don’t skim it. See look at this carrot you picked,” Jacob picked up one of the carrots and flipped it around, revealing mold that’s about to grow bigger.
Wow I really can’t pick vegetables.
As I was staring at the carrot, Jacob looks up and quickly moves fast as if he saw someone and whispers in my ear super quietly: “Follow along. Do as I say.”
