Huh! I couldn’t understand why the hell they wouldn’t believe me. First, the dream and now his spooky grass incident. Okay I will put up to the fact that maybe I imagined the whole getting haunted by a man in my dream. I’ll buy that no matter how scary it was and how horribly my heart raced with fear even thinking about it. But, Today? Why would I be dreaming someone to bump a rod on Ted’s head? Huh?
I reach home with a dull face.
‘Honey, you are home. I was worried about you. You were late today.’ My mom says.
‘Uh, yea mom, I am sorry I forgot to text you. Extra classes and magazine work.’ I say thinking how did I forget to mention about the extra classes to her. Busy head me!
I grabbed some coke and ate chocolate cake and started watching T.V racking all the channels I can. But couldn’t even find one good show to keep up with the sick mood I am hanging on. Ugh! What happen to that American funniest videos show? Did the funny videos ended? Or the show host retired? Nothing more left in this world to laugh about right now? Oh yea, I forgot! It’s there right with me. My face!
I dumped the remote and raced to my bed room and hit my bed. I soon fell asleep. After all, today was really long with all hectic college and college magazine work and not to mention the sick ending. I say dog tired!
I sleep for hours. I woke up around 7 in the night and with sleepy eyes I saw someone standing beside my bed. It’s Ted.
‘You?’ I say first.
‘You forgot your photographs in the park.’ He hands them over to me while I am still on my bed.
‘Oh yea, thank you!’ I exclaim. ‘But, why did you have to come all the way. You could’ve returned it tomorrow in the college?’
‘Yea, well, just thought to meet you. You looked sick while you left.’ he says taking a seat on my red bean bag.
I put my photographs aside on my lamp desk and say ‘I am okay Ted.’
‘Really? You kinda still look pale and sick in that silly pink night dress.’ he laughs teasing me.
‘Oh, shut up Teddy! This dress is perfectly fine. Perfect then your silly A Punk with a hunk lettered tee-shirt! And by the way I don’t look pale just sleepy! S-l-e-e-p-y! You hear that Teddy bear?’
‘Oh yea, clearly blowing my ears!’ he smiles.
I really felt good after a well 2 hour sleep and my best friend’s surprised arrival. May be I am just thinking too much about what happened today in park. He is totally fine and nothing creepier happened later. There was surely nobody. I quickly went up there so that was for sure. It’s not like any magical stuff can happen with the crazy teenagers like us out of whole world.
My mom enters my room with two chocolate milk shakes and cakes! Wow! I love that thing coming into my room. ‘Hey honey you got up? Ted’s been waiting for you like since half-an-hour!
‘What? Half-an-hour? Mom! Why didn’t you wake me up then?’ I asked
‘He didn’t want to sweet heart. Now enjoy the cakes you both! I’ve got some work.’ She says placing them on my bed.
‘Thanks Mrs. Mathew!’ he says will my mom handles the milk shake to him.
‘Yea, thanks mommy!’ I say helping myself with cake and milk shake as well.
She walks off the room and I say ‘Ted? Why didn’t you wake me up? Mad boy!’
‘How can I wake you up? You were sleeping sound. You were really angry when you left. And who knows what would you do if I try to wake you up? Like hitting me with your strawberry pillow? Well, pillow would be fine but what if you got your iron alarm in your hand? I didn’t want to bruise myself. So for my sake I let you sleep and waited till you woke up.’ He winks while dripping the milk shake sip by sip in a decent way.
I felt bad. Really bad! It showed on my face.
‘Hey rock star! I’m just kidding. Stop making puppy face now and finish up you milk shake!’ he hands over the milk shake which I just put down.
‘Ted, I am sorry!’ I say to him feeling bad. ‘I know I over reacted in the park. I don’t know, I was very upset, sad and angry. I took it over you. I am sorry!’ I say whole heartedly.
‘Hey Tashy girl! It’s fine. I know you. Don’t be sorry okay. And you looked heck so worried that you got me come to your home to check you! And it’s totally fine! Understand?’ he says smiling.
‘You are amazing Teddy bear!’ I say smiling back.
‘Hey, I told you not to call me that way! You seriously hurt me now!’ he says offended!
‘Oh really? Cute little pink Teddy bear!’ I tease him more just to see him grin. ‘Hey its past 8! What about you T.V show? I exclaimed.
‘Just sacrificed for you super girl!’ he says finishing up the milk shakes last drop.
‘Oh teddy! You are so sweet!’
‘Okay, wait still there is some show remaining to watch. So now be a good girl and give me company.’
‘Oh-no please go away to your home teddy bear!’ I threw my pillow.
‘Tashy! Stop!’ he exclaims throwing the pillow back at me.
‘Look what I got here! The iron alarm! Just to bruise your head like you imagined!’ I pick it up scaring and running back over him all over in my room.
‘Tashy! Stop it! Look I deserve it! For all the waiting I deserve the chance to watch the show at least now!’
‘Uh-uh! no way.’
The next morning I woke up and landed on my couch sleeping again and got startled hearing to the well familiar voice. ‘Oh hello little Tashy!’ she greets me energized. It’s Derby! My favorite cousin! She came to my home! A surprise visit ‘OMG Derb, seriously is that you? When did you land over here?’ I say still surprised looking at her with my sleepy eyes getting up from my couch. ‘Just now sweetie!’ she says pulling up the luggage.
‘Derby! What a pleasant surprise dear!’ my mom says hugging her tight. ‘Look at you! You’ve grown big in a year, young lady!’ she says with brightened eyes looking at her sister’s daughter. ‘Come in darling!’ she brings her in. I quickly ran to her and gave a long tight hug! ‘I couldn’t believe I am seeing you Derb!’ I say. I missed her awfully and I’m really surprised and happy to see her. ‘Dreams come true Tashy!’ she winks.
‘Ha ha true! Seeing you at my place after a year is definitely a dream come true!’ I wink back.
Yea, so she stays in Californian-the great summer city, with her parents, my beloved aunt and uncle. Her dad is professionally well settled doctor over there now. And Derby is their only child and my only cousin in my family which I do not have problem to hang out with. She’s 2 years older than me and loves grunge music and adores shim just like me. Originally Derb and her mom stayed in Texas and stayed very much near to my home. I always used to end up at their house playing with my cousin or hanging out to movies or end my day with street roaming and window shopping. And Uncle Thomas stayed in California; he works there and used to come by over here to meet them. So after getting rich enough to buy a flat and feed on burgers over there the whole family shifted to California a year back!
I still remember I cried like a baby at the airport pleading her to stay back with me. Till then, I didn’t know I loved my sis very much and it would be awfully hard to stay without her. By then I didn’t even meet ted and Eff was a hi-bye friend.
‘Bye-bye Tashy,’ She cried too. I couldn’t believe my tuff rebelish cousin could even cry. I’ve never seen her sob till then. She is always this bossy and hangs out with rude attitude especially to the boy gang! But she stayed very sweet to me all the time. Protecting me and taking care of me. Even though she fights with me and I taunt her, we finally end up having a sleep over either at her home or at my place. But then, she was leaving no more hang outs, teases and taunts.
It’s not like we didn’t talk much since then. Thanx’s to Skype and the rest free video calling software’s. But it’s totally different to have her beside me just like before. Just so normal like I used to see not the way the Skype shows me on my computer screen. ‘I missed you so much!’ I say holding her hands with wide bright smile. ‘I missed you too sweet heart!’ and she hugs me again tightly and kisses my cheek and goes on ‘kid, did you even brush this morning?’ ‘uh-uh’ I smile. ‘Not that early in Texas!’ I winked.
We land on my couch and my mom brought orange juice and hands it to her ‘here Derb, so tell me now. How’s everything in California? Where are your parents? Did you come all way alone?’ she wouldn’t stop.
‘Mom, give her a break!’ I say and she narrowed her eyes.
Derb laughs, ‘mmm, everything’s great in California, aunt. It’s just that, we miss you people so much over there!’ she says sipping the juice.
‘Actually dad was supposed to attend a conference over here luckily over here! And I just finished my final terms. So, I thought how can I miss my damn good chance to meet my sweet cousin? So here I am!’ she says cuddling me.
‘Awe! You are amazing! It’s been ages since I saw your pretty face!’ I winked
‘Oh wait! Let me check! OMG you grew prettier Tash! Prettier than me in a year!’ she says.
‘Nope, can never beat you!’ I smile.
She laughs on my words and says, ‘don’t worry; I didn’t land up here all alone, my parents wouldn’t allow that early to travel and land up all alone here.’
‘But I don’t see them.’ My mom says looking at the door imagining her sister would pop up like the way my sister did. Just then I heard our phone ring. My mom rushes into the kitchen where she left the phone.
Just after ten minutes, she returns from kitchen all exited and gibberish, hanging up the phone.
‘Okay now kids. I just got a call from your mom. She said she has to be with Thomas till the meeting ends and it will be late. So, they will be here by night! I hope they will have their meal till then. They must be exhausted. Well, I am way too excited to meet your mom. She didn’t even tell you people were coming. At least we would’ve picked you! And I better prepare some well tasty dishes tonight. Family meet!’
‘Oh, so aunt and uncle didn’t come with you? I ask her.
‘We just parted our ways near the air port. They got the meeting call. So, I landed up straight at your home!’ she finishes the juice and puts it on the glass table in front of us.
My mom picks up the language ‘Derb you must be really tired. You just go and freshen up! I’ll get you something to eat.’ she says to her. ‘And Tashy you are going to shut this television off right now and going to brush your teeth!’ she orders me!
‘Fine! Mom, I am going. I’m just happily taken aback from my best cousin’s visit.’ I mutter.
‘You can be happily taken aback even with completing your brushing and bathing things. Right? And your sister might be really tired and leg jacked of the long journey so give her some rest.’
‘Okay-dokie,’ I say.
‘Girl, make it fast! We’ll go on some road trip! I am way exited to roam on the streets. I missed ‘em like hell!’ she says.
‘In a minute Derb!’ I sigh her.
‘Huh!’ time to play with derivatives and integrations. I hate this part of me sitting on my study desk doing math. Especially, when I have my playful cousin playing around me.
‘Hey, girl! Why don’t we go out?’ she widens her eyes excitedly. I can’t believe she has such darn energy in her nerves and limbs. She didn’t look a bit tired for all the roaming we did today and she still wants to have some fun. And I here, already become a sushi and burned popcorn hitting the sunny road and my limbs dead walking till now.
‘Derb, mom would kill us. We were roaming all day today. I am tired. And I have to complete my math problems!’ I say not lifting my head up working on the sums. Only, I didn’t know how to solve them.
‘Common now, don’t be such a jerk. You are disappointing me now. I’ll head back to California the next flight I get! You hear that?’ she snaps me.
‘But, your mom is going to come now. She wouldn’t be happy neither mine, if they find out we were hanging on the roads late night.
‘I will manage my mom and you, your mom. Okay?’ she darted her eyes towards me.
‘Okay, where do we go?’ I turned my chair towards her putting the pen down on my desk.
‘Hey, why don’t we go and watch a movie now? There are still few hours for our parents to return. They wouldn’t even know. What say?’ she curls her hair with her fingers thinking about which movie we should hit.
‘Hey wait, (movie name) perfect! I’ve been waiting long time to watch this one. Only, I didn’t have time in California.’
‘Oh, really?’ I say turning my chair towards my table, gazing my book again and examining the questions in my text book.
‘Yea silly and the hero in this movie is scorching hot!’ She says, falling on my bed describing the bulks of handsomeness he has in his breath taking smile!’ she goes off daydreaming! I laugh and playfully hit her throwing my fat teddy bear which was lying on my desk onto her pretty face. She eyes my seriously and snaps me to dress up quickly. ‘I don’t want to miss a second of the movie.’ She says.
‘Um sounds fun!’ I say, looking up at her scribbling my note book. Alright, I’m darn supposed to complete my longed week math assignment tonight. I’ll be clearly busted if I don’t do it so. The sick part was, even my Effy girl completed this sick assignment. Only I don’t know how. But don’t you think this 18 year old girl needs to have some fun and spend some kickass time with her California cousin? So this it! I’m up for it. Now don’t blame me for ditching my complicated math assignments for watching some scorching super star. I deserve it.
‘Okay now, it changing time!’ she snaps at me.
‘Okay my California cousin your wish, my command!’ I get up from my study chair and bow her. She playfully throws my strawberry pillow over me and I throw it back to her.
I quickly switched my night pants with the shady blue jeans and a (some text) written black tee-shirt and wrapped up my hair into pony. And sighed her ‘let’s go Derb!’
She immediately jumped out of the bed laughing ‘you are too quick sweet heart!’ and headed to downstairs. I smiled at her and I turned off my bedroom lights. I reached the knob to shut the door. Suddenly, the shiny sparkle glowing on my study table caught my eyes. I soon noticed it’s that skull locket I found in the park which was glittering now in that dark. I didn’t know it’s got some radium into it. Only it didn’t shine green like the radium does. It is glowing bright yellow. May be, any other gleaming chemical ridden over it.
I walked to my table and took it into my hands. I couldn’t believe how much amazing it looked in that dark. Not a bit dangerous. It is mesmerizing me with its beauty. It looked magical. Like, it is bound with magical powers. Well, too beautiful for the skull to be admired. Yea!
I got startled when I heard Derby screaming my name. so I swiftly slipped it into my pocket. I don’t know why I am taking it with me to a movie but, I didn’t want it to be left alone in this room. Crazy me! I climbed down the stairs thinking how I didn’t notice its beauty till now. I’ve never seen it gleam in the dark. May be I didn’t notice till now!
So we took a sub way and headed to the theater. We seated in the hall and the movie started. I started munching the pop corn and sipping coke. ‘Ewe, Tashy! Stop eating like a pig. You are disturbing me now.’ She complains. Well, actually I wasn’t having much fun watching the movie but, I can hear my darling cousin screams piercing my ear drums whenever she sees him with his so called breath taking smile. May be it was breath taking. But, not to me! And awe’s with smiles whenever she sees him kissing his girlfriend. My cousin is totally smitten by him.
She is really enjoying the movie unlike me who is wishing to end it soon. She doesn’t care about people surrounding us. Not even the fat guy in front of us who is looking at us disgustedly. Only, I didn’t know exactly what’s bothering him. My cousin screams or my never ending munching! Whatever!
It clearly bored me in the first half. So I decided to take a break and came out to buy something else just to time pass the rest of the movie.
Well, I am standing out there examining the counters to figure out where I should invest my money into. Ice creams would be great. I thought. I went to the counter and payed for a chocolate ice cream.
‘Same here!’ a guy says coming swiftly towards me.
‘Derek!’ I greet excitedly. ‘Where the hell have you been disappeared all these days?’ I maintained my voice little less exited now. I didn’t want him to think I am desperate or I missed him. Kind of I did miss him. ‘Hey just sneaking around the world!’ he says grabbing the same chocolate ice cream.
‘Oh wow! Really?’ I ask amused. I’m being such a kid now.
‘Mm-mm! This chocolate ice cream is fantastic!’ he licks it like a small kid. Honestly now he is eating like a baby dinosaur.
‘What you doing here?’ I ask him stupidly. It’s not like he came all over here from his home to see me or to buy a chocolate ice cream. He obviously came here to watch a movie. If it’s not to watch a scorching hero like my cousin wanted to see but may he is here for that scorching heroine in the movie. But, trust me! Honestly, I didn’t have anything more sensible and romantic in my brain to ask him at that moment specially when he is eating like baby dinosaur, okay.
‘Following you!’ he smiles.
Wow! Did I just hear that? Or am I dreaming? Of course not! I am not even that desperate to dream such things.
But, I wished it was true. It will be really sweet if he did so. Only he didn’t. ‘Very funny, Derek!’ I exclaim, bit disappointed! He laughs, ‘Well, I just came here with my friends, you see?’ he points his hand towards the popcorn counter. I see his friends. His animal friends! Yes, I can see a mini jungle play being demonstrated there. They are all sleeve less. And surely they wanted to expose their arm tattoos to the whole world. All of them seem to have similar ones on their arms I guess. Well, I couldn’t exactly see what that tatoo was. They were four in total and the one who almost looked dark like a buffalo yet masculine is pulling the pants of the guy who I see is the shortest of all. He gets away from him and smacks him on his face. He kind of does it with a karate move. May be, he wants to impress the crowd out there. And the yellow haired fat guy not exactly fat but compared to the rest he kinda looked curbed. So, he too joins the fight. They fight real ugly and end up falling on their asses and laughing out loud. ‘Don’t worry they are just goofing around’ Derek says looking at my jaw dropping face.
Well, I didn’t quiet understand if they were actually playing around or killing around. Err, wired friends he’s got there, I thought.
Finally the last one with brown hair may be the only one who didn’t die his hair with any rainbow colors. He is standing bit far away from this whole mess leaning to the stair case near the pop corn counter is smiling at me! I seriously had a lump in my throat looking at his gaze towards me. He looked dangerous. I quickly cut off my gaze from that jungle play and see Derek’s face. Handsome!
‘They don’t seem to be our college mates.’ I say ‘well, not exactly! They are just my old friends. Not from here so, I don’t quite hang out with them.’ He said. That’s good, or else it will be a social suicide, I thought. I didn’t know he has bunch of hordes as his friends.
The silence crept between us after that play. I started eating my ice cream now. Its way melted in my hands till now.
‘Hmm, so you’ll come to college tomorrow?’ I took the initiative to communicate.
‘Yea, sure.’ he said. ‘Well, I am just going to home now.’ He points towards his friends with his sorry eyes. Oh yea, animals. I thought. He gotto be with them. Sick.
‘Oh, okay then.’ I said.
‘Tash! Why the hell wouldn’t you return?’ a loud voice roared the theater the next minute before I could wave him a bye. It was much scarier than this jungle boys act and It was my beloved sister.
I turn towards her and she stands there eying me and Derek and again to Derek and me in a way suspicious weird boy friend and girl friend way. I can clearly sense she is getting some wrong story winding up in her little brain looking at the way she is sneaking us.
‘Woo, looks like you got some company there, girl!’ she says already embarrassing me in front of my crush.
‘Um, Derb, It’s Derek, my college friend.’ I introduce him to her. I kind a press the word friend so that she wouldn’t get any wrong ideas! So that, she wouldn’t kill the rest of my life while she stays here taunting and teasing me by his name.
‘Oh! Hi Derek, I am Derby. Tashy’s cousin from California.’ she wouldn’t even let me introduce. They shake hands and grin.
‘Hi, it was nice meeting you.’ Derek says in his all well dignified manner. Thank god! He didn’t have the slightest influence of his malfunctioned horde friends.
‘Okay then, I’ll catch you later at the college.’ He smiles at me. Time to bye-bye him. I think. But I was wrong.
‘Wait!’ my cousin stops him. Derek looked at her puzzled and so did I.
‘Derb?’ I look at her awkwardly.
‘Well, we were just planning to catch up some dinner now. So, why wouldn’t you join us?’ she blurts the invitation to him. I look at her stunned. ‘What?’ I say. We didn’t talk about making any dinner plans. ‘What about the movie?’ I ask her.
‘Ah, it’s dragging! No interested.’ She sniffs. ‘Really?’ I say jaw dropped imaging who the hell roared the theater halls few minutes ago with screams and smiles. And wait a minute whose idea was that actually by the way? Huh?
‘Ok,’ he says instantly. ‘What?’ I practically scream a bit. And wait! Didn’t he just say a minute ago he needs to catch up his friends and should head back to home? And what happened now? Doesn’t he need to join the animal troop now? And in a blink he already accepted my sister’s invitation to eat? Specially, all exited. I can clearly see it on his cute face.
Okay relax, maybe I should be a bit happy thinking about dinning with him. I never ever did. Well, just excluding the part where we ate in our college canteen. I never ever did out like in a restaurant. Well, its jus because we never ever went out till now. That robot geek never asked me out! Just the smiling, small talking’s and blushing business going on over months and months. I am not even sure if he likes me.
‘Derek? But your friends?’ I ask him looking at the jungle play once again.
‘Uh, I guess they are sort of too busy. They can manage.’ he says smiling at us.
‘They sure are!’ I say breathing off.
‘So, you’d like to catch up with us? No problem right?’ Derb grinned. I couldn’t understand the need of the dinner plan right now. May be she’s too much convinced by the fact that I said he is just a friend. Maybe I shouldn’t have pressed the word friend. Shit! Now I can see that she is kind of hitting on him. And the worst part was Derek seemed to do the same.
‘Yup, I’d love to.’ He answered.
‘Wait! Love to? What the hell does his I’d love to means by the way? Love to eat? Or love to eat with me or to eat with my California cousin? Huh? There is some serious jealousy business going on over here now. Sister you are dead tonight!
‘I will just have to inform them.’ he walks towards the animals.
Okay now! I just needed to talk to my cousin. Thanks to Derek for giving us a moment.
‘Derb? What the hell was that?’ I shriek. ‘We are supposed to go home now. Don’t you remember we didn’t inform our parents?’
‘OMG! Tashy! He is too cute!’ she smiles, literally dancing on her feet.
‘Cute? Yea. But—?’
‘Is he your boyfriend?’
‘What?’ I blink. My mouth dry.
‘What? Is he?’ she eyes suspiciously.
‘No! I mean–’
‘Great!’ she cuts me off!
‘Great? What’s great? There’s nothing great in that.’ Good lord what’s going on here?
‘Can we go?’ Derek returns. I didn’t have a slightest bit time to sink it in and keep a face to face talk with my cousin.
‘Yea, sure!’ Derb pulls my arms and we walk out of the theater.
Soon we walk down on the streets and got inside a well named bistro over there.
‘Hmm, so order time!’ my sis yells all enthusiastically.
‘You do it! I am already full.’ I say plainly. Don’t blame me. I might look like a moron for being such an unhappy person when I got such a good chance to dine with my crush. But believe me I would’ve cherished my every moment dinning with my crush and so with my cousin. But not with both of them together! And definitely not on the same table! At least not when I see my own sister is smitten by my crush! Enjoyment is a serious no!
‘Hmm, French fries?’ she asks.
‘Um, I’d like to have a mushroom pizza.’ He looks up from the menu card.
‘Yum! My favorite!’ She smiles. What? Excuse me? Mushroom pizza and her favorite? When did this happen? She hates mushrooms! And I was the one who always ends up damped forcibly with all her mushrooms whenever it was our snack or dinner. When the hell did that become her favorite huh? Who the hell she is fooling around here? Or maybe impressing around?
‘But you said French fries?’ I ask her instantly.
‘Silly, that was for you!’ she smiles at me making faces awkwardly.
‘Ok ok I get it!’ I say breathing deeply sipping the water lying on our table. ‘Thanks!’ she murmured.
‘So you are from California? Huh? How is it like there?’ Derek asks her in a way gentle man manner.
‘Yea, it’s so fun! I am doing my 2 year architecture. So it’s just kinda busy!’ she says eating the mushroom pizza. I wonder how she is gonna dump it now in my mouth! I was enjoying now watching her struggling with that every pizza bite! And I’m biting the French fries, her favorite! The evil I’ve become.
‘So you music fan?’ she continues chewing some mushroom.
‘Yup! I love music. You?’ he replies and I suck the French fry agrily looking at them.
‘I am a serious worshiper of grunge!’ she exclaims. Bit proud saying that.
‘Me too! I am grunge freak!’ he says all enthusiastically. Bingo! I thought.
‘Um, you look beautiful! That curls suit you very well.’ he says! What? Beautiful! I almost choked the water I am drinking. He never ever said that to me. Jesus Christ! Kill me now.
‘Thank you!’ she blushes looking down into her mushroom pizza.
‘Well, you look cute by the way!’ she manages to say in her sweetest tone and Derek smiles.
Okay! So she is beautiful and he is cute and I what the hell I am? a Left out? Seriously, I feel so invisible and left out! And yea, I am the odd one who is hanging around here in between my cute crush and my beautiful sis.
They both liked each other. No doubt in that. I’ve never seen Derek this way. He hardly speaks to girls in college and ignores every beautiful girl comes his way to make friendship with him. Well, okay to affair with him. But, he never ever indulged with anybody. He says they are drama queens and so he doesn’t like to talk to them. And flirting is way far away. Unless, he is meaning it not flirting! My sister may be frantic sometimes but she is not a bimbo! The bimbos who Derek hates! She is a grunge lover. The grunge who Derek loves! And till now I guessed I am the only girl he actually likes to hang out with and now he doesn’t even bothering to talk to me. He is way too smitten by the California beauty to notice me heartbroken.
After few minutes they became too busy joking around, smiling blushing and praising each other. They wouldn’t even notice the poor girl munching the French fries angrily and spilling it grains all over the table looking at them. I don’t think they would even bother to notice, if just get up and scream the hell outta here! I’m the left over here! I pity myself.
‘I am done!’ I break their blushes.
‘Uh, me too! Derek joins.
‘Same here!’ Derb says. I couldn’t believe she munched the whole small size mushroom pizza without a bit problem looking at his eyes. She might have really fallen in love.
‘Can we go?’ I put a fake smile on my face looking at her so that this torture ends.
‘Okay,’ she sniffs. She isn’t satisfied. She’s go that whole boy on her tips. Which I couldn’t do in all these months! And she isnt satisfied still! Good Lord!
We stand there just outside the restaurant. ‘Hmm, so’ she says looking at him blushing. Am I that invisible?
‘Um, it was really nice meeting you! Had a real good time!’ he says looking at her deeply with his deep blue eyes. That spark I’ve never ever seen.
She smiles ‘same here!’
I wish I could just say that!
‘Uh, okay then, good night!’ he grins. ‘Night!’ she waves her hand. Should I even bother to say him bye after all this?
‘Night Tashy!’ he remembered I was lying over there stoned. Thank you so much Derek for not making me feel worsen. Let it be the first and last words he’d spoken to me tonight since we landed in this restaurant.
‘Night!’ I manage to smile back which, definitely was the real hard thing to do!
‘Wow! Tashy! He is awesome! My sister yells as soon as he dissapears into the dark.
‘Yea, he is!’ I reply walking on the road to home.
‘So what do you think?’ she asks me exited.
I think insane! Is what I wanted to say! But I managed to say ‘I think he likes you!’ which definitely isn’t a lie. She grins blushing. She knew it wasn’t a lie.
I think it’s the best idea tonight to go to a restaurant. Thanks to you! She hugs me.
‘Yea, thanks to me!’ I moan. Thanks to me for being such a looser.
