It didn’t hurt as much as she thought it would, getting her tattoo. Maybe she just had a high tolerance for pain. Grace headed into the bathroom to look in the mirror to get a better look at her new tattoo. She was thrilled that she got it.
“Okay, you want to keep this covered for 24 hours then after, put this lotion on it to help it heal. Next week, it will start to peel and be itchy as hell. Fight every urge to scratch it or you will ruin your tattoo.” Grace nodded her head excitedly. Stepping out into the cool evening, Grace’s eyes fell once again on the abandoned vehicle. Angelo followed her gaze and saw how longingly she was looking at the old truck.
“So now that I’ve given you directions on how to get to Magnolia Promenade, how are you going to get there? Walk? That’s a couple hundred miles away.” Angelo said.
“Yep. I will walk. One day at a time.” Grace responded.
“Okay, two things. One, is that all you have for clothes?” Angelo asked, pointing at Grace’s outfit.
“Yep. Seriously, when I left, I didn’t really think this though very much.” Grace explained.
“Come with me.” Angelo gestured, walking towards another one of the hotel rooms. Grace followed Angelo up the stairs and to another hotel room door. Stepping inside, he flicked on the light and walked towards a closet. Reaching in, he turned and handed Grace a bag.
“What’s this?” Grace asked.
“After my sister died, I had a hard time parting with any of her stuff. But that was years ago. I never got around to donating the last of her clothes. Here…” Angelo said, unzipping the bag. “You guys are about the same size. Now, she had some wild taste in clothes, but it will get you by.”
“Angelo… I can’t… this is too much. You’ve done so much for me already.” Grace said.
“Grace, please. I’ve led a tough life. It makes me happy to be able to help others. My sister would have wanted you to have these. And I do too.” Angelo said, pushing the bag towards Grace.
“Thank you.” Grace whispered quietly, her eyes tearing up.
“Now, on to the second problem you have. Transportation.” Angelo said, heading back out of the room. Grace followed, giving him a curious smile.
