thinking it out

"She seems to be in a daze of something," Nick said to a shrug as he hung out with Ravi who had come to see him.

"Maybe Kelsey's intoxicated with your brother." Ravi just grinned. They had gone down to a pool hall in town that Nick had never tried. It finally donned on him that it might be a bar, but the place supposedly had the best pizza in town. Only, he hadn't figured yet where to exactly order the pizza at.

It was a little, unfamilar. Kind of dark and strange, too. But most were the red neck sort. One chewed on a tooth-pick as he kept an eye on Nick and Ravi as if they might be trouble.

"I guess." Nick winced. He'd never thought of it that way. They had gotten canned drinks from a pop machine. "So how's it going with you?"

"Well, uh, I've sort of been hanging out with Liz." He nodded.

"She's the new room-mate?"

"Remember, Bridget's sister?" Ravi looked at him, seriously.

"Oh yeah, I think I do. Sort of. Dunno if I actually met her." Nick squinted.

"Well, I dunno what it is about her." Ravi seemed to have a laugh choked inside him.

"Sounds like something personal." Nick grinned.

"Yeah, well, I'm not very lucky, we very well know that, now don't we?" Ravi reminded him.

Just then the dude with the beat up straw hat and pointy boots with the toothpick wedged between his teeth came up to their table.

"Are you guys gonna order anything?" He looked at them cross. Even more so to Ravi as if he was too foreign to be here.

"Uh, yeah, we heard you had the best pizza in town." Nick gave him a stare as if this guy was not gonna be trouble.

"Where did you hear that?" He gave Nick an angry look.

Nick then mentioned Heath's parents. Suddenly, he was fine with the both of them. He told him he'd bring out the house special.

"Half price, just because, well, you know." The fellow shrugged.

Nick didn't know, maybe he did. The waiter walked away then.

"Maybe you'll  have to bring Liz here, some time." Nick tried to act as if that last little bit hadn't scared him with the so called waiter.

"I highly doubt that." Ravi remained even lipped as if maybe all was not well with him, either.

That was interesting. Glad he saw Ravi..just not sure what sort of place that is.

Kind of a strange encounter, huh? Not quite sure what to make of it! It must've been good for him to catch up with Ravi.

I dunno if I'd go back to that place or not. I bet they wished they hadn't came there.
