Don't get things out of order, or he'll flip.

Isabella hurriedly brushed her hair, trying to get her bangs to stay down. The morning had been a mad rush thanks to her alarm not going off. Now she was dressed in a pair of jeans, a baggy green t-shirt, and her black converses. As much as she liked her job, it was one of those days where she truly wished she could just sleep in and watch TV all day. But she had clothing to spray, fold, and organize. It wouldn't do any use being fired now, would it?

The red head stopped by Starbucks right away. Juggling her wallet, nerves, and a cup of coffee, she started walking to Abercrombie & Fitch. She shoved her purple and red duct tape wallet into the back pocket of her skinny jeans. A few minutes later she entered the store, where her coworkers were busy setting up for the day.

"Isabella, you're-"

"I know, I know. I got everything under control. I brought another shirt to change into, I'll be right out!" she called in an anxious voice. Isabella began speed walking through the store, going into the back to set her coffee down and change into a shirt that barely fit her. "Ah crap," she mumbled, realizing she'd forgotten it in her car. Panicking, she grabbed her coffee off of a table and ran back out front. "Be right back!" she yelled again, running out of the store and turning sharply to the left, almost falling over as she did.

***

Jude smiled as he opened up the doors to Sam Ash. Music was always his thing. Every since he was little, it was his escape. Forget all those fancy gadgets and video games. Just give him a guitar and he would be busy for hours. Melodies came and got themselves stuck in his head.

Humming, he put the keys in his register and slammed it close. Everything looked to be in order today, which was a relief. Some of the less experienced workers would leave instruments sitting around and he would have to re-tune and set everything up. That was, unless it was the odd day that Nikki came in ahead of him. But not seeing her told him that she'd be joining him later.

"Morning Jude!" The blonde smiled and looked up from pretending to be doing work. Nikki always brightened the day. If the sun ever died out, which wasn't supposed to happen for awhile as far as he knew, she could easily replace it. He smiled kindly in return, happy to see her and not have to wait out the day alone or with idiots. "So, you excited to start the day?" she asked after throwing her bag on the floor.

It annoyed him a bit. He liked everything being in perfect shape, but as long as she moved it he promised himself he wouldn't freak out. "Yeah, I'm excited. I'm surrounded by music and wandering teens. What could be better?" There was a hint of sarcasm in his voice. Jude wasn't very fond of 'mallrats' that just roamed about during the day. Some day, hopefully soon, they'd find out what it was like to be behind the counter instead of teasing it.

Harper sighed and put her phone back in her pocket. Nobody was in the store yet, so she figured other employees could cover for her while she went to get some breakfast. In her rush this morning, that was one thing she forgot. She mentioned to a fellow worker named Valarie that she was going to the food court and she agreed for covering her for a little bit. Harper smiled in thanks and skipped out the door. She hummed on the way to the rather large food court of Ontario Mills Mall.

Harper's eyes scanned the different vender restaurant places and she decided on a blueberry muffin and a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks. Sounded good enough. She went up to the line and when it was her turn, ordered her 'meal' with a friendly smile. While she waited, she was looking around at the employees of a variety of stores who were getting to work late. She thought that the mall ma open in ten or fifteen minutes. Who knew?

On the way back to H&M, she decided to stop by and say hi to some of her friends in Sam Ash. She sipped her coffee and poked her head around the corner and looked at the counter. "Knock knock!" she chirped. The energetic girl hopped over a bit so instead of just her head around the corner, her whole body was there. She took a bite of muffin and then a swig of mocha. "G'morning!" she added on with a smile. The reason she got along with Nikki so well was because they had the same kind of perky attitude. Except, she's never seen Nikki be mean to anybody... and if you say the wrong things around Harper, well, not so much... Harper will either defend herself, or others. And you do not want her for an enemy, let alone be on her bad side.

Nikki grinned at Jude and bounced back to the counter.
"It's not so bad. They're all really nice people when you get to know them! Plus being surrounded by music is always a bonus," she said with a slight laugh, picking her bag up when she remembered Jude's like for order. She skipped through the door into the staff area and hung her bag up on one of the pegs provided. She walked back through into the store and made a popping noise with her mouth.
"So, everything in order? We all ready to start a bright new day?" she asked cheerily as Harper poked her head through the door.
"Knock, knock!" Nikki smiled at Harper, glad to see that someone was happy.
"Morning Harper!" Nikki yelled, laughing slightly. She pulled out a stool that she kept behind the counter and plonked herself down.

Isabella ran through the mall, not paying attention to anything else. If she didn't get her shirt in time, she'd end up having to wear somebody else's or having to buy a new one. Buying a new one would mark the third time that month. "I'm dead," she mumbled to herself as she turned a corner.

Almost immediately she hit somebody else, crushing the foam coffee cup between her and the other person. Hot, dark liquid (which smelled incredible) dripped onto her hand and then onto the floor. The red head bit her lip and took a step back, shifting the remnants of the drink to her other hand and shaking her left hand, trying to get the coffee off of it. "I'm so sorry," she said hurriedly, looking at Anabelle with a panicked expression. "I was trying to get to my car and I wasn't watching where I was going."

***

Jude laughed a bit and pretended to be organizing some papers. "I guess so," he commented. It was then that he noticed they were blank and oddly sticking together. A bit disgusted, he tossed them in the waste basket just as somebody came in and Nikki asked him a question. "Knock, knock!" a voice called happily, leading Jude to fool himself into thinking Nikki had a twin sister. But it was only Harper.

"Hi Harper," he said quietly in comparison to Nikki's bright 'good morning'. He didn't mind Harper, but this much noise in the morning was a bit troubling for him. It was also bugging him that she was so close. Speaking of which, was she really sitting on the counter like it was nothing? Jude did his best not to twitch and sat down on his stool.

"We just got here. Not that much changes in a matter of..." he looked at his wrist, forgetting that he didn't own a watch. "Er- twelve or so hours?" He wasn't exactly sure how long it had been since he'd seen either of the girls, though he guessed it was sometime after his shift yesterday.

Harper grinned and hopped off the counters and walked around the store, unable to contain herself and her interest any longer. She looked at the many different CD's and instruments and every now and then she would turn around and ask one of them, "Oooh, is this one new?" or maybe "...this is so cool!" Knowing how OCD-ish that Jude was, she was careful not to move anything or misplace something. But she did have to take a rather nice acoustic guitar off a rack and strum a few chords experimentally. Her little leather bound notebook was in her purse stowed away in a little area she had for herself back in H&M. That is where she kept all of her songs, her original songs. Then, a few chords and notes just clicked in her head and she played them a few more times and reminded herself mentally to write them down later. Although, being Harper, she would forget.

At Jude's answer she shrugged and put the guitar back carefully. "Good point." she said and skipped on back over to the two. "I wihs I worked here. You guys are so lucky." she said and frowned, peering over her shoulder at all of the musical stuff. Then the frown was replaced by another bright grin and she bounced on her toes, waiting for one of them to say something. Although Harper ould talk all day, she'd rather have them talk.

Nikki simply smiled at Harper and settled down. She glanced quickly down at her watch, remembering that people actually did come in and buy things so it was necessary to be ready for customers. She stared at her wrist for a little bit too long as it dawned on her that she was not wearing a watch. She smiled slightly at her own stupidity and tore herself away from her thoughts with a snap, remembering that she was not, in fact, alone.
Nikki watched with slight amusement as Harper admired their latest wares. Her eyes slid sideways slightly and she realised with a shock that people were milling around outside.
"We are indeed lucky to work here, but we won't be working here much longer if we don't get some customers! Go on now, out with you, or you won't have a job either," She teased lightly, jumping up to usher Harper from the store.
"If you really want to stay, you'll have to be a good little citizen and not disturb the customers," she said in a firm voice, although the effect was ruined by the bright smile on her face. She turned back to Jude.
"Did you need to get anything ready before anyone comes in?" she asked, smoothing her hair back in a distracted fashion.

Harper pouted and then sighed. "Fiiiine. I have to get back to work too." she gave in and skipped out, waving hello to people who began to file into the music store.

By the time she made it back, her boss gave her a little glare.

"Bolt. Where were you." it was more of a demand than a question and she winced, looking down at her feet, remembering sh left her coffee at the music store.

"I, uh, er...." she said softly, not like to be yelled at. "...I was getting something to eat." she squeaked and looked up with her big, chocolate brown eyes.

The Boss narrowed his eyes. He wasn't the nicest of people and he muttered something nasty under his breath, making Harper wince. "This is the second time this month," he started. Sorry that I'm freaking ADD, she thought. It was true though, she got distracted by the simplest things. "...and we cant afford to have you gone anymore. Sorry, but you will have to find another place to work." he stated and took the lanyard from around her neck. Harper opened her mouth the protest but got shut up by an angry look and she frowned, tears welling in her eyes and she pivoted on her heel and walked out. Harper has never gotten fired from anything. Never. Wasn't her fault she was sensitive too.

Harper made her way back to Sam Ash and had a dejected look on her face. "I spoke to soon." she mumbled quietly and plopped down on an open stool.

Jude watch Harper cautiously, hoping she wouldn't break anything. Before he knew it though, Nikki was shooing her out. Harper left with fewer words than Jude had expected. He turned his attention to Nikki as she walked back over. "Nope, I have everything set up. Did Harper put the guitar back right?" He leaned on his stool, trying to see and nearly fell off.

He grabbed onto the counter for dear life and sat back up, embarrassed. "Uh, that didn't happen." He smiled and laughed, opening the register and closing it. Open, close, open, close...

Harper entered then. Jude looked up in confusion and noticed her grim expression. Instead of feeling anxious yet excited, he felt a bit more negative. Her face had fallen, making him frown as well. "What happened?" he asked, turning his head to look at her.

Nikki glanced over to where Harper had been examining the instruments.
"I'm sure she wouldn't be so inconsiderate as to mess up your neat system," she declared cheerily, watching the door Harper had just left though absently. Still no customers. Oh well, it was too early to assume it was going to be a slow business day. Most days no one really started coming in until around lunch time, probably because they got a lot of teenagers in their store and most of them seemed to be sleeping during the early hours. Nikki had a brief panic attack as she thought about the possibility of her not turning off her stove before she realised that she hadn't even used it in the past week. No, the most useful piece of kitchen equipment was her microwave. God bless the microwave.
She glanced over as Jude wobbled precariously on his stool.
"Of course it didn't," she replied with a bright sunny grin. Jude was absolutely adorable, although she did worry about him sometimes. She hadn't seen him with a girl yet, although she was positive that soon he would have girls' swooning after him as he was extremely nice. Then again, Nikki had also been at a loss as to why her ninety something grandfather had been single when he died. And he had been a convicted felon.
Nikki looked up as Harper re-entered, looking quite down-cast.
"Harper! What happened?" she asked with concern, tilting her head and watching the girl from her seat. The door opened behind her as a customer trailed in.

Harper smiled brightly at Jude's suggestion. "Okay! Thanks!" she chirped and perked up more. "And I honestly couldn't care less if I made any money." she reassured him and blinked, hopping up. She stood there, bouncing on her feet once more, unable to contain her energy. She really shouldn't have had that coffee this morning.... Like she of all people needed it. She hummed quietly and waited for somebody to say something. Although she was a singer, her humming still had that unique and rather pretty flow to it, like silk. She grinned and awaited a response.

Jude smiled, glad that he'd made her feel better. That's the kind of guy he was, always helping people back up when they were put down. Some might call it sucking up, but he was sincere. He looked at Harper, bouncing up and down like the energizer bunny. Man, this girl had a lot of energy! He looked over at Nikki, then back at the guy cruising through the store. He looked sort of shady to Jude, but who was he to judge?

Harper took a nother sip of the coffe she really shouldn't have been drinking. She was hyper enough already naturally. Harps got up and began bouncing around the store from palce to place. One minute she was at the guitars, the next books, and after that keyboards. Then, withing five minutes she had been around te whole store and she was back on her perch of the stool. "So! How have you been lately?" she asked Jude with a friendly smile, the silence eating her alive. Obviously there was music playing in the store, but there was absolutely no talking!"

Harper saw the paranoid look in Jude's expression. Probably nervous she would damage something, so she decided to reassure him. "Don't worry. I may be happy, but I'm not clumsy." she said with a joyful smile to prove her point. Then, he rebounded her question right back at her. She shrugged. "EH, same old same old. Writing some music, practicing it, and practicing lacrosse. Beach. All the boring stuff." she said with a not very excited tone. She always just thought her life wasn't very exciting. She wanted to take risks, but never got the chance.

"The beach isn't so boring. My dad never takes us because he hates driving there. Plus I think my whole family except for me ends up burning to a crisp in the sun." Jude chuckled. It was never fun to have sunburn, but it sure was fun to tease people when they did. He wasn't sure why she considered it so boring. Anything that took up time couldn't be boring, could it?

Harper grinned. Well it wasn't very boring, but when you grow up on the beach pretty much, it was. "Eh, kinda. And that sucks." she chirped, feeling sympathy. Harper couldn't imagine life without the beach. "We had a house on the beach pretty much... It was our only house, so I pretty much was a fish." she explained, still bouncing on the counter, unable to contain her energy. It the whole tanning and burning concept, Harps laughed. 'Oh, well, I have never been burned before.... And I only apply one thing of sunscreen. SO, I usually tan before I burn." she explained to Jude.

Jude sort of doubted that considering how pale she looked. But how would he know? He shrugged and noticed that the guy had left. He sighed, not sure of what else to do or talk about. He looked at Nikki who seemed to be in a daze, then back at Harper. "So... how's the weather?" he asked awkwardly to break the silence.

Harper couldn't really help but laugh lightly at his next words. How's the weather? They were in the same place weren't they? "Um, pretty good." she decided on, and grinned, eyes shimmering with amusement. "How 'bout you?" she rebounded with a friendly smile.

"Uh, we're in a building. But it was nice when I drove here this morning. Except that I almost hit some guy speeding when I turned. That scared the crap out of me." Jude found himself babbling on, but figured it was better than silence.

Harper gigiled at his comment about them being in a building. "Good point." she said and rocked back and forth on the stool, how teachers tell you not to becasue you might fall. In other words, they are usually telling you that htey don't want to deal with a jacked up kid. Too late! Harper may not be physically messed up, but mentally was another story as her parents used to say. Her eyes became truobled, but she shook the thought away, and was as perky as usual.

Speeding? She couldn't imaging Jude, of all people, speeding. So, to tease him, she put a hand over her mouth and gasped, seeimng truthfull shocked. Not to brag or anything, but HArper was an amazing actress as well as musician. Her eyes grew wide. "Jude henderson? Speeding? OH my!" she said with a smile and laugh to follow.

The blonde didn't notice the second of despair that crossed Harper's face. He was too focused on her rocking back and forth. She really shouldn't do that. He was worried she would fall and then he'd have to take her to the emergency room or something. Jude usually wasn't the best under stress, which was probably why he had a mini panic attack whenever he had to take a test.

He looked at Harper as she gasped, which shocked him a bit, but once she started laughing he knew that she was just joking. He smiled and shrugged. "Well, I didn't want to be late getting here. I like for everything to be in order." He smiled.

Harper rolled her eyes in a playful manner.

"Suuure." she said with a wink and rocked back and forth still. The legs slipped from under her, and the stool fell, but with Harper's sharp reflexes, the bright girl leapt off in a single motion and landed on her toes without making a sound. And in another fluid motion, she grabbed the stool about an inch before it clattered to the ground, saving a mess. If it did fall, it would have knocked down a rack of CD's. Harper gave Jude an apologetic smile.

"My bad mat.e At least I caught it!" she chirped, seeing the bright side of things. The girl flipped the stool upright, and sat on it again. This time, staying still. Other than her bouncing leg that was.

Jude cringed, ready to hear the loud noise of the stool hitting the ground. But before it did, Harper somehow caught it. He sighed in relief. "Are you a ninja or something?" he asked, eying the stack of CDs. They seemed fine.

Harper gave a slight laugh at his comment, and raised her eyebrow in a mischievous way. "Maybe..." she said and hopped down, and was standing next to him without making a sound in an instant. "...maybe not." she said playfully then raced back to her stool, hopping on it and pulling her legs in towards her, resting her chin on her knees with cat like balance, not even wavering in her position. She just relaxed there, like everybody was supposed to be this nimble and agile.

Jude watched her in amazement. Was this a dream? He pinched his wrist. Nope, this wasn't a dream. "Ok, you are definitely a ninja," he told her as she perched on the stool. That was just not natural. '"If I tried to do that, then I would fall flat on my face." He laughed.
