Just What I Needed...

Okay, so I know that the title is a Cars song, but it has nothing to do with them or the song, its purely coincidence. It's a love story, but there's and interesting twist: it's being told from the point of view of the guy. Other than that, you'll find out as you read!! :D
PS-The chapters will probably be short; that's just how I write.

Chapter 1

The Coffee Shop

It was a hot summer day, and I sat there, tired and sweating, feeling like a dog in heat. I put down my guitar--which I was strumming absent-mindedly--and walked into the house. I sat down and slammed my head down onto the table, feeling depressed. You see, my mother had just past, and it just wasn't the same without her love and affection every time you stepped into the house. My whole family was shaken by her loss. I just sat there for a while, not lifting my head from the table. My dad came in eventually and tried to lift my spirits. "Hey, kid. Why don't you go find something to do to take your mind off of your mother? Take a walk or something..."
I sighed. "Okay..." I replied, dully and without emotion. I got up and walked out in silence, closing the door behind me. I started walking, going nowhere in particular, when I found myself in this quaint little coffee shop in town. I ordered a cup and sat down at a table, sulking.
"May I join you? I heard a feminine voice ask. Iooked up from my coffee to find a rather optimistic-looking girl about my age looking down at me.
"Ummm, sure, I guess." She was actually kind of cute...
"My name's Nicole, what's yours?"
I quickly snapped out of my little daydream.
"My name's Paul, Paul McCartney."
