Saturday 11pm - Sunday 2am
Accidental Midnight Bliss
At a motel near Redwood Valley, 11pm. Frank is still asleep, Da Wei who already wants to continue going tries to wake him up.
Da Wei: right. now. what’s a surefire way of waking him up that won’t end me getting slapped again……. huh. let’s give him some nightmares
darling, wake up. come and see this
look at what i’m doing, i’m hanging these nice pictures
look at all these new bug painting collection i got from my friend. aren’t they amazing!
(Frank has some sort of phobia with bugs and the likes)
Frank starts to squirm on his bed
hey darling, here’s one of my favorite beetle that i used to play with when i was a kid. but it’s now been preserved, and it’s gonna be just as beautiful. FOREVERforeverforever….orever….ever…...ever….ver
Frank is now tossing around on his bed. Da Wei still teasing Frank while sitting right beside his bed is holding his giggles in
darling, wake up and see this nature’s beauty. DON’T YOU JUST WANT TO KISS IT?
Frank: whimpering silently…...p-p-please….
Darling. COME HERE AND EMBRACE THE NATURE’S GIFT TOGETHER….together…...gether…...ether…..ther….ther
Frank: suddenly screams and woke up KEEP THAT THING AWAY FROM ME!!!!!
Frank rolled off his bed, towards Da Wei, Falling, headbutting, and pushing down on Da Wei in the process. it was but a flash of blanking out for a split second for both parties, only to realise they were kissing each other on the floor.
_Da Wei, which was already up and aware already, quickly realised what was going on, and wanted to push Frank off, but some why felt like he couldn’t move his body, and he actually didn’t feel disgusted by this, to his surprise. _
a few seconds later Frank finally realised what’s going up and instantly pushed himself off the ground.
Frank : BWAAGH i…. uh… i’m…… whispering and looking down sorry
both party have their face redder than a tomato by this point. and Da Wei is still stunned and speechless
Frank: let’s just act like this never happened. okay?
Da Wei, still stunned, and with his mouth still gaping open just gave a slow nod. his “LET’S PRANK BUT NOT GET SPANKED” plan instead gave him some “ACCIDENTAL BLISS FROM A KISS”.
both just silently packed their stuff and goes downstairs to check out from the hotel and keeping their distance from each other. but at the receptionist’s desk their face got red again, which only pronounces the possibility of misunderstanding by the receptionist. but at this point, everything is way too awkward and the are trying their hardest to just not care, while being obviously failing at it.
in the car
Da Wei: uhh. so……… the route and next check point frank?
Frank: Same as before. Heading south on Highway 101. Just with the difference that San Francisco is coming up.
Da Wei : right. let’s just hope there’s not much cops. i’m gonna be driving slightly over the speed limit, to catch some ground we lost.
Frank: yea. We shouldn’t see much traffic too, as it’s nighttime. I think sleeping in the afternoon was a good idea. We should be much faster through San Francisco than those who had to do it during the evening.
Da Wei : right.
In an awkward silence, both of them trying to forget what happened at the motel, they continued going south. Only the sound of the 80s high end class stereo blasting could be heard.
An hour later. They were driving through some hilly terrain that seemed more densely populated.
Frank: (humming) If youu’re gooing to Saaaan Fraaanciscooo
Two more bends in the road, this view came up
Frank: Wow. This looks even more stunning in real life as it does on the pictures.
… silence …
Frank: Well, we’re in San Fran. Let’s see if we can get something to eat.
Da Wei: uhh yeah. just find something that opens for….
a blaring bright open 24 hours sign came into view as they were talking
Da Wei : FUCKIN BUFFALO WINGS!!!!
The car turned left as quick as it could. Then turned again to the parking space, and within seconds, when frank finally turned his head towards the driver seat, Da Wei is already closing the door and are already running in the diner.
Frank: (still getting out of the car) Hey, wait! At least lock the damn car, we’re now in San Francisco at night.
Da Wei stopped, only to throw the keys to frank. and by throw, i mean not the pass throw, but like baseball throwing throw. then continued running for the door of the restaurant
Da Wei : CATCH! see ya inside
_Frank tries to catch the keys, but only hurts his hand in the process, and the keys end up on the floor. After some Austrian swearing, he picks up the keys, locks the car and follows Da Wei into the restaurant. _
after Frank is finally inside the restaurant
Da Wei: one of Flame Bingo Wing, and 1 Buffalo Wing Burger, and 1 plain buffalo wing set, and 1 Buffal-on-a-waffle, and 1 large root beer. and some extra Hell’s leak Sauce. actually get me some poached eggs with that please.
Frank: A Buffalo Burger, some fries and a coke for me. After the waiter has gone You’re hungry, aren’t you?
Da Wei: even if i’m not, i’ll still stop here. it’s been literal ages since i came here. i think it was when i was like 8 yo maybe? before i was 10 that’s for sure. used to come here with my family. and i FUCKING LOVED EVERYTHING. you just can’t go wrong with anything you choose.
Frank: Oh, didn’t know you were here before. But good to know the food is as tasty. Let’s eat then.
Da Wei: yeah. my grandma used to live close to here, so like every time i visit her here, we ALWAYS go to this place. oh you don’t know how happy and surprised i am knowing that this place is still in business. but let’s just see if it is as good as i remember it being.
The waiter comes and delivers Frank’s food and some of Da Wei’s food, then comes back a few seconds later to deliver the rest.
Waiter: just to make sure, that’s everything you’ve ordered right?
Da wei takes a second to see the now full table before answering
Da Wei : yeah. that’s everything. thank you. now then.
Both of them start to eat, at a different pace. A single bite from the burger in Frank’s hand is a whole burger for frank. the second bite from Frank’s burger, and Da wei have annihilated half of another course. And after a while ...
Da Wei: goddamn it is as good as i remember it. and then some, that Flame-Bingo one, i don’t think i’ve ever eaten one. except for the Buffal-On-Waffle. who thought spicy meat and sweet waffles would go well together. you enjoyed yours frank?
Frank: Yea, this place is actually good. Shame it’s so far from our home. You know some more stuff along our route?
Da Wei : uhh. not from the top of my head. but i think i’ll remember some when i see it. it’s all childhood memories after all.
Frank : Anyways, if you know a place where we should stop, let me know.
Da Wei : will do. btw Frank. what if you had done this journey with your fiancee? the situation right now is so nice. traveling the country together in a car, having the fun of your life. and now having breakfast together reminiscing on childhood memories. kinda….. romantic in a way isn’t it?
Da Wei: oh fuck. no. please don’t get me wrong, i was not thinking that way. no. i was just spaced out. i have no intention of doing that again…… fuck, i should shut up, i’m just making it worse
The waiter who snapped up a few phrases from the conversation had to grin, and also Frank couldn’t hold himself while he turned red.
Frank: Let’s just go, okay?
He signals the waiter they want to pay, while Da Wei blushed again. After a few minutes, they go back to the car, and continue their journey.
