Jesse: Week One, Day Six

WEEK ONE
Tattoo:  Heart on Left Bicep
DAY SIX
Hot-headed: Argued with Xander after learning Zelda was a big flirt.

Jesse woke up before Zelda and settled for giving her a quick kiss goodbye. He wasn't sure he'd hear from her again after her sister told her what he'd said last night.

Heading in to work, Jesse spent the day smoothing things over with Red. She'd really been giving him the cold-shoulder after he'd turned her down that day.  Hopefully she got over it soon...

When he got home, he sat around thinking about Zelda, wondering what Ilianna had told her.  How could he let her know how he felt?   Suddenly, it came to him!  A love letter!  Didn't girls get all mushy-gushy over flowers and love notes?   Before he could change his mind, he hurriedly wrote a note to her and slipped it in the mailbox.  There, he thought with some satisfaction.

Feeling anxious, Jesse called up Xander.  Xander was always good for a good time.  “Come on, Xander, let's go out,” he said. “I need to get out of the house.”

Xander met him at the diner. “Come on, drinks are on me,” Xander said, punching his shoulder.

"Thanks, I'm waiting to hear back from Zelda.  Man, she's something, isn't she?"

Xander laughed.  "Don't get too serious, now!" he said, pulling a fake punch aimed at Jesse's stomach.

Jesse stopped. “What? Why?"

Xander shrugged, "Well, you know Zelda is a big flirt. She flits from guy to guy. She'll never settle down!"

"Shut up!" Jesse growled.  He couldn't believe the words coming out of his friend's mouth.  "Watch what you say about my girlfriend!"

Xander glanced back at Jesse. “What? You didn't know? Bro, she puts out for everyone!”

Jesse shoved Xander backwards.  "I said shut it!" he threatened.

Xander shrugged, holding his hands up. “Look, don't shoot the messenger!  I'm just saying...” Xander suddenly look uncomfortable.  “Look, bro.  I thought you knew!  I didn't realize you were serious about her!”

Jesse stood rooted to the spot.  Suddenly Ilianna's scathing remark was making much more sense.  Her words,I'm sure you use the word boyfriend loosely.” rang in his head. 

Xander saw Jesse's face pale and tugged on his elbow.  Come on, bro.  I think you need a drink more than anything right now.”

Jesse numbly followed after his friend.
