Screaming into his cellphone. "Sarah, did you order those flowers?!"
"Yes sir 24 dozen, 12 to her apartment and 12 to the view."
The elevator doors opened and Johnny bolted out of there in a flash. He ran past the security desk and through the entrance. Johnny looks both ways, no Lisa. "The parking lot!" Johnny ran over to the lot only to see Lisa, in tears, peel out into the street. "LISA!!!"
Lisa drove away sniffling until she reached a red light. "I can't believe this." She smacked the steering wheel hard a few times. "I meet this nice guy and he turned out to be just another jerk! When am I ever going to learn."
The car behind her blared it's horn. "ALRIGHT!!" Lisa stepped on the gas, goosing her car as far and fast away from Johnny. The thoughts of them walking together in the night talking about this and that went through her mind. How Johnny just talked to her as Lisa not "Lisa Ling". Another tear welled up in her eye.
"I liked him. I really liked him." She smacked the steering wheel again in frustration. She took her time and drove back home to her condo and crashed on the couch. She looked at her answering maching, the number 47 blinked on the LED.
Then the phone rang again until the maching picked it up.
"Hi this is Lisa, I'm not home right now because I'm out doing the things you should be doing so just leave a message and have some fun. Goodbye."
BEEEEEEEEEP- Lisa, it's me Johnny. You don't have to pick up, just, just please listen. I know we only just met but I had fun being with you. I had fun just being me and you looked beautiful just being you, that can be hard with people just seeing the image you present. Look I just want to say I'm sorry. I am so sorry. If you could just look outside you windo.....BEEEEEEEEEEEP.
Lisa wiped away the tears from her eyes. She sat up and went over to the window. The sounds of Billy Vera and the Beater "At this moment" came alive. Her smiled came back at what was before her. Her walkway was lined with roses all the way to her car where a bakery truck was parked next to it. The roll-up doors of the truck was open and inside were racks cream pies. Next to the truck was a large picture of a donkey's ass and Johnny's head sticking out from it. Johnny looked at Lisa and mouthed "I'm sorry".
