Something was definitely going on. I decided to watch all the dramas, taking important notes from my observations. Natasha was acting really weird, I need to keep a close watch on her. The sudden closeness between Tasha and Jason is disturbing. Let it not be that Mel was never my enemy in the first place.
After the close of a really stressful first day of a school week, I looked around for Tasha to come carry my bags to my car but she was seated quietly in class. Come to think of it, her face lacked that annoying smile of hers since morning, is she facing some sort of troubles at home? I decided to be a good friend and go talk to her. Unfortunately, my phone beeped before I could leave my seat; it was a call from my mum.
☎ Hey baby. Are you done for the day?
Yeah! The bell already rang. Would be home soon. Any problems?
☎ Nothing really dear just that there’s a party in town that we need to attend
☎ Yeah. Your brother is out of town, so you’d have to attend
When is it?
☎ am sorry baby
am not going. End of discussion
☎ Please dear. Its the Smith’s party
☎ How many Smiths do you know? Its a welcome party for their son, Jason
Jason has been in town for more than a month now
☎ His dad has not been around and now that he’s in town, he’s throwing a small get-together for his son. Our kids are invited so he can make friends and move around quickly and easily
Why didn’t you tell me on time? Anyways, am coming. Its tonight right?
☎ yeah baby. I’ll see you at home. Thanks honey (drops call)
A party! For Jason! Am so psyched! I need to pick out an outfit but Gabriella is the professional here. I guess I would have to call her.
I stepped out of class with my bag, trying to call Gabriella and Jake on the phone but they weren’t picking up their calls. My driver too was still not yet around, I am going to relieve him of his duties soon. As I left the school compound, I stood in front of the gate, trying to get through to my driver whilst other students walk out into the streets, some cycled, others were in a car, all headed home.
I was getting really angry, as I raised my head to see if my car was already headed for my direction, my phone still in hand, trying to get through to him.
Where are you?
☎ Am very sorry ma’am. The car had a flat tyre on my way to pick you
You must be very stupid, infact you are a big fool for saying that rubbish to me, you hear me?
☎ Am so very sorry ma’am. I know you are angry but please forgive me, am already close by
sorry for your dumbass self, foolish idiot. Would you come and get me out of this place right now and mind you, am going to personally deal with you myself when I see you
☎ am sorry ma’am (my eyes suddenly caught Tasha standing a little distance from me, lost in whatever she was staring at, her face was flooded with tears. I followed her gaze and saw what was making her cry; JASON AND MELLISA WERE KISSING. Anger boiled inside of me but I stood still, Tasha is going to be my weapon now) ma’am are you there?
come get me out of here fool (hangs up)
I watched the drama with deep interest as I saw Tasha walk away, or rather ran out of the scene, headed for God knows where. Mel suddenly pushed off Jason from herself as she ran away, taking a bend and disappearing into the distance.
I would save all of my strength for the party tonight, as I saw my car stop in front of me. I couldn’t wait for the clumsy fellow to open the door for me as I stepped in majestically and we drove out.
Kissing Mellisa, I must admit have been my long time dream and desire. Though, the thought of being slapped again couldn’t get out of my mind, but I was ready for everything and anything. Kissing her at that moment in time, some might say, was not a good idea but it was all I could come up with at that moment. As i pressed my lips against hers, my grip on her tightening, I felt her loosen her defense as she no longer struggled to be free but gave me access to her. The kiss lingered on, as I wasn’t ready to let go off her yet, I was still savoring the sweetness of her lips.
She suddenly jerked off from me, holding onto her lips, as she looked at me with unsure eyes, as if contemplating whether or not to give me the slap I deserved. The intense, quiet gaze lingered for two minutes as she ran away from me. I couldn’t even scream her name as my lips felt numb, my brain seemingly slow in processing all of the data.
I stood there, still looking on as though I could see through the distance, she must have used black magic on me as I looked and felt so dumb, much to my amazement. When I finally regained consciousness, I rode after her but as usual, she had already disappeared into thin air.
I headed home, to get ready for my supposed welcome party. Though, I have already been in town for more than a month but dad is throwing the party right now, claiming he is in town and would want to throw the welcome party now. But I know better, its all a scheme to get the top business men and women under one roof to get them working for him since he was going for the mayor of the city.
I can’t believe I kissed Jason but actually he was the one who did the kissing but I kissed him back, gosh! Why is my face turning red all of a sudden.
I looked at him for a minute, one part of me desiring to slap senses into his head and the other desiring to jump on him and kiss him all over again, but I saw myself running away from him. Why was I running? I had no idea. All I knew was, I wanted to be far away from him at the moment.
Getting home, I ran upstairs to my room, locking myself in my bathroom, the events of few minutes ago replaying in my head, as I still felt his lips on mine, his firm grip on my waist, I could still perceive his perfume, he smelt really nice. I closed my eyes for a minute, a smile curving on my lips, my face was red from blush as I turned on the shower to bath. Maybe, I would feel better after a warm bath.
I got dressed in my knicker and T-shirt as I laid in bed, covering myself, trying hard to sleep when I heard Alicia walk in.
“What’s with you” she asked, eyebrow raised
I looked over at her and saw she had already had a change of clothes as she helped herself to sit at my reading table.
“What!?” I asked, trying to hide the blush on my face and voice
“All of this” she said
“I kissed Jason” I squeaked, getting up from the bed, sitting up as I smiled widely
“What!? I mean how!?” She asked, moving to the bed to get a better hearing of the conversation
“I mean, he kissed me actually but I couldn’t push him off and I ended up kissing him back” I said excitedly
“Wow! Sister. So tell me, was he a good kisser?” She said grinning
“A great one at that!” I said, hiding my face in my palms
“So does this mean you are both a thing now?” She asked nudging at me
“I don’t know. What about Natasha? I can’t be the reason for their breakup” the sadness was undeniable sensed though I tried hiding it
“What are you on about now Mel” she asked worriedly
“They might be dating you know?”
“Might you say? Meaning you aren’t even sure about it yet”
“I don’t know Alicia. They could be dating and I don’t wish to be the reason for any breakup”
“Well, as much as I hate to admit it, you might be right. If truly they are dating, he shouldn’t and you also shouldn’t be involved with him. If he wants you, he should do the needful”
“That’s exactly how I feel”
“So what will you do now?”
“Nothing I guess”
“Come online, i sent you a picture. I want your opinion on it”
I took my phone and logged in to messenger to see the picture Alicia sent to me. It was a picture of a dress.
“I wanna place an order for it. You like?”
“Its beautiful” I complimented
It was a message from Jason as it popped up on my screen. I looked over at Alicia with a shocked expression which she returned as well.
“Reply him” Alicia urged
•HOW YOU DOING?•
I looked over at Alicia, as if waiting for a go ahead sign from her which she gladly gave.
°AM FINE. HOW ARE YOU°
• AM GOOD BABY•
“Baby!!” Alicia squeaked as we got comfortable on the bed.
“What do I say now?” I asked Alicia when the app told me he was already typing
“Wait for his message” Alicia said almost in a whisper
•AM SO VERY SORRY FOR EVERYTHING. I SWEAR I DIDN’T MEAN TO HURT YOU•
“Now you have to twist your words, make him confess without you asking directly” Alicia said
“Is this your first time chatting?”
“Am just very nervous right now”
“Give me the phone” Alicia said snatching the phone from my hand.
“Those are just emojis Alicia”
“Let the emojis do the magic”
• I KNOW I HAVE STEPPED OUT OF LINE COUNTLESS NUMBER OF TIMES BUT FROM THE DEPTH OF MY HEART, I AM TRULY SORRY •
“I told you” Alicia said grinning “now let the queen get back to work”
°AM I SOME SORT OF EMOTIONAL DOLL THAT YOU JUST CHOOSE TO PLAY WITH? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?°
•OF COURSE NOT BABY. I CANNOT HURT YOU DELIBERATELY•
°YOU CALL ME BABY WHEN YOU ALREADY HAVE A GIRLFRIEND. WHY ARE GUYS SUCH LOWLIFE CHEAT?°
“Lowlife Cheat!? Isn’t that too direct? He would feel insulted”
“Its called using emotions against him. We are women and that’s our hidden talent”
• GIRLFRIEND!? I DON’T HAVE A GIRLFRIEND•
°DENYING YOUR GIRLFRIEND IN MY INBOX IS THE LOWEST YOU CAN GO°
• I DON’T HAVE A GIRLFRIEND MELLISA•
°DO YOU WANT ME CALLING NAMES FIRST?°
• TASHA? TASHA IS NOT MY GIRLFRIEND, I SWEAR TO YOU•
° BUT YOU BOTH WERE ABOUT HAVING SEX RIGHT? AM NOT A CHILD JASON°
• AM SORRY THAT YOU HAD TO WITNESS THAT BUT I SWEAR TO YOU NOTHING HAPPENED BETWEEN US•
“Nothing happened between them?” I asked rhetorically as Alicia nodded
“He could be lying” I said not wanting or wishing to believe
°SO WHO’S TASHA TO YOU THEN?°
•JUST A FRIEND•
°JUST A FRIEND INDEED°
•I SWEAR TO YOU MELLISA, TASHA AND I HAVE NOTHING TOGETHER. SHE’S A GOOD FRIEND THAT I HAVE GROWN FOND OF BUT I AM NOT DATING HER•
°SO WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME NOW?°
•I LOVE YOU MELLISA•
°AND WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING ME TO SAY OR DO? LOVE YOU BACK OR WHAT?°
•COME TO MY WELCOME PARTY TONIGHT•
•YEAH. MY PARENTS ARE THROWING ME ONE TONIGHT AND I WANT YOU TO BE MY SPECIAL GUEST PLEASE•
°AND I CAN’T SAY NO?°
°SEND ME THE ADDRESS°
•THANKS HONEY. I’LL BE EXPECTING YOU•
“What have you just done? You just accepted to attend his welcome party”
“Yeah. And you are going to the party so let’s get you ready”
“You are crazy Alicia. Let me just text him that you are coming along” I said trying to snatch back my phone but she was quicker.
“Of course not. You both need privacy to talk and you know, do the needful” she said with a naughty smirk on her face
“You are such a spoilt child, gosh!”
“Whatever! but I feel things are going to get clearer tonight”
“You sure? What about mum?”
“I’ll handle her, don’t worry. Just try getting home tonight and don’t get pregnant” she said as I chuckled
“Time to pick a sexy dress for you” Alicia said, making her way to my wardrobe.
I was super excited when Mel agreed to come to the party tonight. I was going to make everything right tonight. Texting her was a leap of faith that just happened to be successful, I couldn’t be more happier.
I was going to tell Mel the whole truth tonight, without holding anything back.
Yes! This was the best thing to do
I would have to outsmart fate and destiny this time, its the only choice I have now.
