Teddy & Pearl Looking for The Oyster ( Part Two)

Pearl wanted Teddy to follow her.
Pearl didn’t want Teddy to follow her.
Evidently walking was going to be her modus operandi for getting herself home.
She hadn’t even began to mull over why he has pursued her for months for this dinner date and then to do that dining solo act.

A car was approaching from behind droning towards her. It wasn’t Teddy’s car and sped past without apology.
Once on the main road she figured which direction to take and made haste, it was cold, the weather was uninviting as her dinner date had been but at least it made sense to her.

Ahead the light of delicatessen shone, a lighthouse, a possibility to use a phone perhaps.
“Hi I’m stranded and hoping that I could use your phone please”
The young girl handed her a hands free phone with silence and a blank expression only a teenager can project so succinctly when they are so over it all.

“Kate….he’s a nut job!”
Kate listened to Pearl’s discourse about her dinner date interjecting with some well applied commiserate sounds of “Ohh No” and “Really”.
“Teddy’s so quiet, such a nice guy” Kate replied hearing the bewilderment in her tone. Teddy’s behavior was odd if not unexpected.
Kate felt a stab of guilty bile rise up her throat when the idea that maybe her little chat to him a few days ago may have backfired and created a fireball instead of a fire of passion.

Pearl didnt’ want to wait anywhere she was too pissed off to placidly just wait for rescue. She told Kate to pick her up on the main road, the name of which the young shop assistant agreed to divulge knowing she heralded the power of information over the woman standing in front of the shop counter.

Teddy paced. He wasn’t good at pacing.
Did that teach her a lesson?
Did she understand what the lesson was?
Did he want to be her teacher?
