...five people entered the Starbucks cafe. I visibly frowned.
They all wore black hoodies and black sunglasses, earning themselves looks of suspicion from me.
"Who do you think they could be?" Rachel asked, and I shrugged in reply.
"I don't know, but I think they may be murderers."
"Who do you think they are?" Selena asked, butting in on our conversation.
"We don't know," Rachel answered, "but what I know is that they look slightly creepy."
"Do you think they're people hiding from the government?" I asked. Selena's eyes widened as another thought escaped her lips.
"Or is it... Ordinary Brothers?" I tensed at the boy band's name. I looked at the five people who sat at a table, waiting for service from any of us.
"Please," replied Rachel with a snort. "I doubt they would dare come out in the open. On the pictures posted online, they always travel with bodyguards."
My eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"They need protection from crazy fangirls like this one," she said while pointing a finger at Selena.
"Hey!" she pouted.
"I'll just deal with this. I don't want Geoffrey to hear of this and scream at us for not doing our jobs," I said as I headed towards the group of five suspicious people seating at a far seat in the cafe.
The first thing I noticed when I was going to them was that they all tensed. I shrugged off the reaction, thinking it was no big deal. Selena's first guess was starting to make a lot more sense.
"Hello. What can I get you guys?" I asked. There was no way that I would give out my name to strangers who were giving me a bad vibe.
"Emery?" one of them asked. Another nudged the one who spoke. My eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"How do you know my name?" I asked. None of the five people answered. I decided to shrug it off, believing that I wouldn't like the answer.
"So what would you have?" I asked. The same one who said my name gave me their orders. As I went to the station and had their orders prepared, I couldn't help but think that I knew them. I had just gotten the orders placed on my tray when Selena's phone rang.
♪ Baby, you light up my world like nobody else...♪
My breath caught in my chest.
"I'll get that," she said as she took her phone and headed into the kitchen.
I felt as if I was frozen in time. My eyes were widened in shock, and I had no idea of what to do.
That voice... it was the same voice...
Everything began to click. The five suspicious people who entered the cafe, the fact that they wore hoodies and dark sunglasses, and how one of them knew my name.
It was my damn bullies!
