It was finally dark enough. On the streets of a rich upscaled stores, every one of them was closed.
“Time to go shopping” Adam said to Adla with a smirk on his face, hoping it would cheer her up. She just returned a smile and looked forward. Knowing that, that was all the response he was going to get out of her, still smirking he looked to the door of the first upscaled rich store. He just stood there, on the street with Adla beside him, staring at the door. A minute later, you could hear clicking noises. As the tumblurs of the lock started to open up, and as the key pad inside the building started rewiring itself. Then the next thing you know the door cracks open.
Adla walks into the room cracking the door open.
“Wow” Adla said with her jaw completely dropped. Never had Adam ever seen Adla with such an expression of excitement and overwhelming happiness. She slowly approached a little black dress. Sleeves of golden lace, with a sweetheart neckline with rippling and flowing bottom. She turned around and smiled at her brother.
“I can’t” she said. “I don’t deserve this. It’s so amazing, and beautiful, I can’t Adam”
“You can, and you will” Adam replied tying a tie around his forehead like he was going to a rock concert.
“Maybe try the snap on tie champ.” Adla responded sarcastically.
“Whatever, go ahead, try it on!” Adam replied cheerfully pointing to the female dressing rooms.
“Okay, I will” Adla said with a smile.
Meanwhile while Adla was trying on the dress, Adam was looking at suits. He was checking out everything there was in the store. Being careful not to leave too much of a trace. He wasn’t looking for trouble, so he didn’t take any money, he just needed a suit.
Adla came out of the dressing room. Adam smiled from ear to ear. How she looked in that dress was absolutely breathtaking, and Adam was so happy he could provide for his sister like their parents, and like how Chase did once before. Adla smiled, and Adam returned it. She walked over to the full length mirror and twirled.
“What do you think?” she asked.
“You look beautiful Adla” he said in a soft protective tone.
“Thanks” she said with a big smile on her face. “Now, it’s time for you to get your fancy on.” Adla said looking Adam over at his torn up T-shirt, and his worn out shoes. She quickly glanced at the things that the men’s section had to offer and selected a pair of pants, a shirt, and a bow tie. “Now go and try that on” Adla said pointing him to the dressing room with a smirk on her face. Adam returned the look with a smile.
Adla was looking over all the things the store had to offer. She also selected a shiny pair of shoes, a sleek blazer with suspenders, and a fedora to go with Adam’s outfit.
Two minutes later, Adam came out of the dressing room with his clothes all twisted.
“I don’t know what I’m doing” Adam said looking down at his clothes. Adla just smiled, and told him to tuck his shirt into his pants, as she tied his bowtie, and fixed his hair. She threw the shoes on the ground, and handed him the jacket. Once Adam seemed well adjusted, Adla took the fedora from behind her back and placed it swiftly and angled upon his head.
“Dang Adla” He said looking at himself in the mirror, “I look good” he said. Adla just rolled her eyes. “Well now that we’re looking fly, let’s head to the party” Adam said looking down at Adla.
“Oh yeah, we’re still doing that” Adla mumbled under her breath.
“Yeah, we are, we need and deserve answers Adla” he said, and she nodded as a sign of agreement.
Before they left Adam swept the place of fingerprints, set the alarm and everything back up again the way it was before. As they walked away towards the party.
