The art of Love Letter writing is dead and gone. Killed by science and technology. A tragedy, I must say. It was one of the best forms of expressing ones self and I took advantage of it.
I spent a lot of time writing love letters for my secondary school classmates to their girlfriends. I was so good at it. I could paint pictures with words. And of course I avoided those ambiguous words. Never for once did I use the sugar in my tea or cockroach in my cupboard routine. The cockroach thing is nonsense biko. That annoying and irritating creature has no business in anything that has to do with love.
Anyway there was this very beautiful girl who lived across the street. Anita. I had tried unsuccessfully to convey my feelings to her.
Her mom sold food so Anita had to help out and was never chanced. She was the last of 5 girls but older than the only boy Francis. Anita always gave me this smile every time I passed their stall. I looked for any excuse to walk past the stall. Sometimes I’d walk past there 15 times just for her smile.
She’liked to call me Ju Love or Shebi love. I was the only kid in the area who was “shebiing” courtesy my move from Lag to Kano. Took me years to switch to ‘ko’. That ‘Love’ she calls me used to scatter my punk. One time like that her mother wasn’t in the stall and I passed by as usual. Anita called out, “Ju Lov”. There was a quantum shift in equilibrium. Smiling like a fool l walked into tree. ‘Wawu’ the pain was intense but smile remained.
So I wrote her a letter. I racked my brain. My imagination was in hyper. I was going to bedazzle and bamboozle her. I poured my heart out. ! One day by chance she came to fetch water in my compound.and I gave her the letter for her personal consumption. Unfortunately village people had other plans.
I was at home when I heard noise outside. “Where that Junior. E dey write my pikin letter. Make him mama hold am o.” No escape route for me for at that moment cos I’d just finished washing plates and was arranging it. My mother looked at me and asked what the noise was about. I feinged ignorance. At that moment Anita’s mum came marching in, holding Anita by the ear and dragging her along. Boy was I so dead.
“Madam what’s the problem”, my mum asked. Anita’s mum heaving and panting passed the letter to mum and told her I’d written a love letter to her daughter. Everywhere went quiet.”Read what you wrote”, my mum said. I held the paper.
With one eye on the paper and the other eye on my mum, Anita and her mum I cleared my throat and began to read. “Dear Aniluv.” My mothers neck became erect. I moved back. Na die I dey today.
I continued. “My reason for writing this letter is that I may not get the chance to convey my deep feelings for you in person. We’re policed by our parents and are time constrained.” An Igbo woman in the compound just shouted “Supu”. I almost smiled even Anita too. Love sweet sha. I looked into my mum’s eyes see thunder and lighting. Nothing about love in those eyes.
“Your smile lights up my day. The way your tongue caresses my name leaves me in a state of euphoria and unbridled joy. When I don’t see you I lose all appetite for food.”My mother eyed me upandan like coman eat this night lemme see.”
I knew I was truly finished when I saw the next line. Na me write am. It was sweet when I wrote it but reading it to my mum? Death! “You’re a queen and I adore you. Please be mine. I will do anything for you. Climb mountains for you. Cross rivers and oceans. My mum is my jewel but you’re my crown jewel.”
I scattered 3 legs of the table I was standing on. I could not see any white part of my mothers eyes again. Everything was shinning red red. ‘Wozzzzzaaaaiiii’ I collected one on my left cheek and ear. The weight of the slap carried me into a pile of clothes she had arranged. She screamed “Finish that letter. She is your crown jewel okwa ya.”
Mama Junior take am sofrey na only letter o”, Anita’s mother whispered. My mother eyed her. The woman kuku draw her child near her side. Bhet wait! What was the woman expecting when she came to report me? That my mum would lovingly hug me and we would live happily ever after?
I got up barely seeing anything through tears and the ‘weeeennnn’ sound in my ear. “Your eyes are like the stars. Bright and twinkling. You’re shaped like a goddess. I could sleep on your bosom till eternity. So soft and………
‘Tazzzzzaiiiiii’! My mum dropped the second slap on the same spot. It was no longer ‘weeeeen’ sound it was ‘waaaaaaaaannnnnnnn’. I had scattered the remaining leg of the table. “So Chukwufumnanaya e metu be go ala( Chukwufumnanya you have started touching bwess)”, mum growled.
Heiiiii! This was really bad. I was sniffling holding back the tears and hot catarrh I felt like blowing, “No Mummy it’s….it’s….it’s…my imagination.”
“Ehen so you’re imagining bwess”, she shouted. Confused I replied “No mum it’s temporary thoughts.” She just picked the spatula and gave me at the top of my head ‘kooommm’ I don’t know when I shouted “Mummy it’s the devil that pushed me.” My mama no dey hear that kain nonsense. She gave me extra doses of semi permanent marks to remember the day by.
Village people 100. Me zero. I stopped passing Anita’s stall. In fact my eyes were always in front when passing. Then I went and watched adult video with her brother Francis but that’s another story.
I’m having the best sex of my life with another woman but I’ve just discovered she’s my boyfriend’s mum
DEAR DEIDRE:I HAVE had the best sex ever with another woman but I have just discovered she is my boyfriend’s mum.
I am 28. This woman and I met quite by chance a few months ago at a crafting weekend and right from the start there was a spark between us.
We sat together, laughed and joked and I could tell she was also flirting with me. She is a very attractive 45.
If anyone had told me beforehand that I would respond I would have been horrified, but I found myself flirting back.
We arranged to meet for a drink the next week and she came back to mine for a coffee.
We cracked open a bottle of wine and she had too much to be able to drive, so she phoned home to explain and stayed over.
We had sex and it was amazing and I am not even a lesbian.
She is the only woman I have ever been with. Although I know I am straight, I really love being with her.
I didn’t say anything about her to my boyfriend but things have been progressing with him.
He is 26 and we’ve been together for three months. He invited me to a meal with his parents.
I was really looking forward to the evening but imagine my shock and horror when I walked in and was introduced to my lover.
I don’t know how we both managed to act like we’d never met.
In spite of the situation we had a lovely evening and even managed to exchange a few words alone at one point.
She has texted me since and wants to go on meeting, but I keep thinking I should break it off with her.
It’s going well with my boyfriend. I don’t want to break with him and family get-togethers could only ever be awkward.
On the other hand, surely what my boyfriend and his dad do not know cannot hurt them.
DEIDRE SAYS:It would be hard enough if it were just your secret but it is your lover’s, too.
You risk losing your boyfriend, but she is deceiving two of her nearest and dearest – who might hold you to blame.
Secrets and lies will be part of carrying on as you are and it is only a matter of time before one of you gets careless and lets something slip.
So you have to make a choice. Do you – and does your boyfriend’s mum – want to rip up the life you know?
If that’s not what you both want, stop anything more happening between you now.
If you realise you are seriously attracted to women my e-leaflet on Bisexual Issues will help.
Or was sex with the mum better than with your boyfriend simply because she knows what works for a woman?
In that case my e-leaflet Thrilling A Woman In Bed could help you help him to get it right.
The perfect couple
“Baby, leave my breast let me watch this movie in peace na, you de rush the breast like say na shawarma wey you thief “
“Don’t tell me that oh, when I married you, I paid for my breast too, besides eh, this movie I’m watching is not as interesting as what I am touching “
Oluchi almost choked with laughter
“Okay, just put your hand inside since it’s scratching you, ashawo husband like you”
“See you forming good person, when night reach now, you be wriggling like someone under annointing. You that does not allow me to sleep in the night, you de run marathon like all these people for Ethiopia and Kenya “
Oluchi looked at Ken, pretending to be angry.
“So because I de try manage you, you de run mouth ba? No worry, no show for you this night, konji go kill you this night, bet me” she said stretching out her hands.
“If dem born you well make you try am. I will cry till the whole neighbors will wake up and ask what the problem is, I will tell them my wife does not want me to sacrifice to the gods “
She laughed hard again and gave him a mild kiss.
“Oya, see eh, just make me my favorite food na, by the time the meal is ready, I will be done with the movie “
Ken quickly runs to the kitchen and puts on his apron as he proceeds to make her favourite food, jollof rice and fried plantain.
Just then there is a knock on the door and Oluchi opens the door to welcome Jude, Ken’s friend.
They exchange pleasantries and she tells him that Ken is in the kitchen.
“Kitchen?” he asked with a surprise look on his face.
“What is he doing there? “
“He is planting mango in the kitchen sink, ofcourse he is cooking ” Oluchi said with a smirk on her face. She’s never liked him.
“So your husband is in the kitchen cooking while you watch TV?”
Just as she was about to reply him, Ken comes out from the kitchen.
“Ken wassup, I was just asking of you, your wife said you were in the kitchen ” Jude said with a grin on his face.
“You make it sound like its a bad thing man, how far na” Ken said.
Jude drags Ken aside
“But bro, this is wrong by all standards, how can you be cooking while your wife sits with the remote, watching TV? This isn’t normal. This kind of thing cannot happen in my house na, a whole man like you, do you know how many girls used to rush you back in those days”
Ken wipes his hands on the apron as he shakes his head.
“Jude Jude, why did you come here sef? “
“I came to inform you that we will be meeting later at the club , I called you but you didn’t take your calls,now that I have seen you on your apron, I’m not surprised “
“Jude my good friend, first thing first,I am not you and will never be you. What works in your Family might not work for mine and I don’t even want it to. My wife cooks everyday for me so what’s the big deal in cooking for her just for today? I am always with my wife in the kitchen everyday to help her out, and so you know, I wash my clothes and hers when I have the time and I don’t leave her to do the chores alone. She’s my wife, not my slave “
At this point Jude didn’t know what to say, he just stood there like a dumb lunatic.
“Look Jude, no two marriages are the same, do what you like but don’t kill Becca in the process. Have you seen your wife lately? She looks like a frustrated mad woman, so thin and almost invisible and you are here , forming man of the house “
Jude brings out his handkerchief and wipes his face.
“I won’t come to the club today, infact, I won’t come for a while.My wife doesn’t like clubbing that much and since she gave up her modeling career to do business because of me, I need to let go of somethings too. I need to get back to the kitchen, my regards to the boys “
Jude hasten his steps as he walks out of the house.
“My husband my husband, double ration for you this night, correct man wey sabi. Infact you see eh, de go that kitchen, make I do u rush rush inside”😂😂😂😂😂😂
“Baby make I rush off the gas make we no do rough play burn house “
MORAL OF STORY….
💥Leave people alone and stop forcing your policies on them
💥What works for you might not work for them, don’t try to make people live like you except it’s to make them better.
💥Marriage is a union of happiness, make your home a playground, not a war zone .
💥Share the chores, don’t call her a weaker vessel and still give her all the hard work to do.
May God Almighty give us wisdom and understanding on how to go about our relationships/marriages in Jesus name
Lucas and I were both sitting quietly on my bed the tension between us could double kill a dead person, I mean he just confessed to me! And told me to think about but what if I don’t want to think about it, what if I just want us to stay friends cause I don’t see him more than that.. I’m afraid to say I dont have feelings for him..
“uhm so.. What do you want to do now?” he asked
“I dont know maybe something” I said out of point and he suddenly gave me a look and smiled
“how about we go to the arcade” he said cheerfully and I rolled my eyes..
“the arcade? What! do I look like a boy to you” I said and he shrugged and said “maybe” while I rolled my eyes.. I sighed heavily and laid flat on my bed I looked at the time and it was already going to three.. “I’m feeling kind of tired today I don’t know what’s wrong why me” I said and Lucas turned to me
“really? Are you sure you’re not sick” he said and I nod.. “no I’m not”
“okay good, do you want to rest, should I leave?” he asked
“I don’t know? Do you want to leave?” I threw back the question and he kind of flinched
“w-well I don’t want to leave but I have a feeling you want me to” he said and I stared at his blue eyes and scoffed
“what are you some mind reader?” I said sarcastically and he laughed, “you can call me that!” he said and I smiled.. What do you know I’m starting to feel better already..
“so tomorrow’s school, do you want to study with me?” I asked
“uhm.. I-i don’t really like to study but sure, I’ll give it a shot” he said and I smiled,
“but.. I’m not even with my books” Lucas said
“we have assignments in math and don’t worry you can work it out in my jotter and transfer it to your book tomorrow okay!” I said and he grimaced weirdly, I know he hates the idea of studying but he doesn’t want to leave and I’m dying of boredom..
“what the hell Lucas you got it all wrong” I half yelled for the third time Lucas started solving our math assignment..
“well what do you want me to do the x went to where it belongs and so did the y I dont get why I’m wrong” he said defensively and I sighed and snatched the pen from his hand and showed him how to solve it..
“there, now try it yourself” I said and he nods and grabbed the pen back from my hand boastfully
“just watch and learn” he said and I rolled my eyes..
He solved it and got It right and I cheered him on and couldn’t stop smiling, we both solved number two and with the same method he got it right and he was more boastful than ever, we were both studying laughing and playing at the same time that I didn’t know when my mom walked in, and started staring at us..
I noticed her and she suddenly smiled
“mom? What are you doing here?” I asked
“it’s passed five, dinner time is ready” my mom said and I nod
“oh and L-Luke Lucas.. Yeah would you care to join us for dinner?” my mom asked and I gave her a look while she grinned..
“uhm yeah sure” Lucas said with a smile.. “good” my mom said and walked out..
I packed my books and shoved them all inside my bag,
“you could have just turned down the dinner offer and go home” I tell Lucas
“why? Your mom seems nice your entire family is nice” Lucas said
“yeah well, you better warm up your voice cause for you this won’t be a dinner but your life quiz” I said and he rolled his eyes and said “yeah right?” sarcastically.
I help my mom set the table and all an everyone sat down including my dad, just like I told Lucas when we all started to eat my mum started..
“so Lucas.. You go to the same school with my Daisy right?”
I gave my mom a look but she completely ignored me
“yeah, we’re also in the same homeroom actually we’re seat partners and also subject partners” Lucas said and my mom smiled and said “really?”,
While Lucas nod..
“wow.. That’s great you must be really smart since you and Daisy take the same courses” my mom said while I rolled my eyes..
“yeah speaking of smart.. I’m not sure and compared to Daisy , I’m not quarter to her half” Lucas said And I blushed and my mom smiled
“I knew right? She takes after me” my mom suddenly said and immediately my dad and I gave her a look.. My dad coughed and breathe out and said “excuse me” and gulped down his glass of milk…
“anyway Lucas I hope you take care of Daisy for me in school” my mom said with a smile, okay what the hell is that supposed to mean.. Lucas looked at me and we both shared a brief eye contact before he turned back to my mom and nod lightly, ..
okay living alone in this Mansion is way too boring, I’m now alone staring at the big frame picture of me and Daisy on my thigh, Heather’s gone cause she had some things to do urgently, I could have dinner but I wasn’t hungry, I went to my room and had to slam a nail to the wall just to hang up the picture of Daisy and I.. And what could I say, it was beautiful, she is beautiful not just the picture, but Daisy.. .. Maybe I should call her and know how she’s doing, or maybe I should just lay back because I just remembered I don’t have her phone number..
I sighed tiredly and was about to lie down when I heard the door open from downstairs.. “Ben I’m home!!” I heard my dad’s voice from down, and I went there
“hey dad, good evening” I said tiredly
“hey..ben.. You look tired, are you sick, what’s wrong?” he panicked
“I’m fine, thanks for worrying” I said and he smiled
“why would I not worry you’re my flesh and blood after all” he said.
“so.. Dad about school? tomorrow I’ve thought about it and I was wondering if I’d get to go to my old school back” I said and he sighed and plopped back to the couch,..
“I heard you went to a public school and to be sincere I don’t really like public schools, so I’m sorry to say but you’re not going back there, you’re in your final year right? So it’s really nice to finish off in private school” he said and my shoulder went soggy..
“but I’ve made so many friends and seriously it’s going to be hard to leave that school alone” I said and mean it.
“I know but what is people going to say about that, that I just found my son and he’s going to a public school what kind of father would they think I am.. Ben I want the best for you really and I’m also sorry to say that now that you’re in this household this family, you have a reputation and learn to live with that expectations” he said and I sighed, I almost forgot he’s popular, pretty cheesy! Well I don’t want to argue with him or fight or quarrel so I guess I’d just have to agree,
“fine.. I’ll stick to what you want” I said and he sighed and nods
“and don’t take it like its what I want am doing this for you too” he said with a short smile..
“I know..” I breathed out and he smiled beamed “so have you eaten?” he asked while I shook my head negatively
“why? There was enough fo–
“I wasn’t hungry” I said cutting him off and he nods, “okay I don’t know if this is the real you or not but you seem awfully quiet and trust quiet boys these days are hard to find and when I was your age I wasn’t this quiet. Being quiet isn’t always the best way to live” my dad said and I looked at him and smiled..
“I’m not this quiet but I’m close to it.. But I’m not quiet person, maybe.. I don’t know maybe I’m home sick or something, even though this will be my new home for now I’m going to get use to it.. I mean adaptation.. I’m still going to get used to the smell the hugeness and the loneliness cause since you’ll be off to work everyday it will just be me myself and i in this house” I said and my dad stood up and said,
“look Ben if you need anything just, anything tell me and I’ll do it for you” he said and walked away, but stopped on his tracks and turned..
“oh and if you’re worried about staying home alone, I can get you a job at my company like a part time you’ll be getting paid your pick” he said with a smile
“well I’m not that smart when it comes to business so.. I’ll pass” I said and he laughed
“I ain’t talking about business here, well I am but it’s not, since you aren’t that smart seems like you take after your mom” my dad said and I gave him a look that says “that’s-an-insult” he cleared his throat and said “well it’s a job boys your age do so don’t get too worked up I’ll call Heather now to get everything ready with your new school tomorrow” ..
“okay sure” I said and head to my room, I walked in my room and sighed heavily.. I laid my back on the door and stared the picture of Daisy and I.. And I smiled it’s going to be hard to see her these days.. I really miss her…
Sorry it’s late alot has just been going on.. Thanks 4 being patient..
By RUTHIE LEE
I cleaned the unknown tears on my face and stood up, maybe we’ve been to close that’s why I miss him so much already, I climbed on my bed and the sleep I couldn’t get finally came..
My dad and I sat down at the back of his car, while the driver drove us to our new home, I was supposed to use my car but he didn’t let me he said someone’s going to bring it to the ‘mansion’ later the thought of living in a mansion is quite welcoming,but the idea of being alone is not in my vocabulary..
I stayed quiet in the car since that’s me for anyone I don’t talk too much if there’s nothing to talk about..
The sound of her name in my head just sent shivers to my body, the look on her face while I was leaving didn’t seem very nice, it was like she wants me to leave she didn’t even hold any emotion on her face, I know she’s not even going to miss me a bit, and look at me here missing her like crazy, if only she knew I feel about her..
The driver pulled over in front of a big house and we all walked out of the car “welcome home son” my dad said happily and he give me a smile while I gave him a brief smile too..
We walked up to the gate and he typed in some numbers in like a pass code machine or something and the door opened, I breathe in and out trying to get Daisy out of my head, I’m just feeling down..
As we walked in the Mansion there was a huge swimming pool at the right side, we moved to the door and he opened it by just placing his right palm on a scanning system which was laying flat on the door and the door opened
“pretty soon you’ll also have access to the whole house like me” my dad said with a smile
“cool” I said and my dad smiled.. He took me upstairs and he showed me my room, “so this is your room, just get everything ready, get unpacked and after that help your self out with the food in the kitchen, I have to go now I have some business to attend to I’ll be back soon I’ll send my secretary here, to keep you company” he said and I shrugged and then nod..
“okay see you soon, I feel guilty for leaving you actually, or maybe I should just call off the meeting i have?” he asked while I shook my head negatively..
“it’s okay” I tell him and he nods, gave me one more smile and walked away..
I opened the door to my room and I was amazed by it’s neatness and beauty, I walked up to the clean and well arranged wide bed and dropped my belongings on top of it.. I started to unpack and neatly arranged my clothes in the closet and my shoes at the bottom of the closet, and before I knew it I was done there wasn’t anything to unpack actually it’s only just my clothes..
I sat down on the bed and sighed, the house was quiet way too quiet and it’s kind of creepy, I touched my forehead and sighed, I looked at the time and it was 8:43am.. I went downstairs to get something to eat from the kitchen and I lost my way three times, this is so fucking huge it’s going to take me sixty years to get use to it..
I finally found my way to the kitchen and wow, it was one of a kind.. I mistook the oven for the fridge and laugh at my mistakes.. I found the frigde and it was loaded with different kinds of food, but mostly vegetables ..i saw a plate of ice-cream and I grabbed it.. I mean who wouldn’t choose ice-cream over vegetables..
I plopped down on the couch in the huge living room and decided to watch TV, but silly me I mistook the TV for a mirror and I didn’t laugh at my mistake this time because even though it was only me in the house it really embarrassed me cause that was dumb..
I turned the TV and just switched to a channel and start digging in my ice-cream, I got a few brain freeze and well it was worth it.. The door clicked opened and a middle aged woman walked in with a smile, she must have access to this house since she just barged in.. As she walks close to me the sound of her heels were the only thing that was echoing in the entire mansion…
“hi. ” she said with a smile
“sup” I said without looking at her but at my ice-cream
“you must be Benjamin, I’m Heather your father secretary and best friend and I’ve heard a lot about you” she said and smiled smarty, you know the way smart peoples smile.. Like Daisy
“nice to meet you too Heather, just so you know I prefer to be called Ben” I said and she nods
“okay Ben, your father told me to come here, and show you round the house, that wouldn’t be a problem right?” she asked
“no. I’m bored anyway so let’s get on with it” I said and stood up..
I woke up and headed to my bathroom and took the longest bath ever.. That I almost got wrinkles on my fingers. Immediately I got out of the bathroom and got dressed I received a call from Lucas..
“hey Lucas good morning” I greeted as cheerful as I could
“good morning?? It’s two in the afternoon” Lucas said and I glance at the wall clock and gasped, I must have slept a lot..
“ah sorry I didn’t realise that I slept for too long” I said
“oh it’s okay and are you okay you don’t sound to good” he said
“don’t worry I’m fine, I’m just… Well I haven’t eaten that’s why!” I said and sat down on my bed
“okay remember you promised to hang out with me today so are you still on board with it?” he asked. “uhm yeah.. Sure” I said
“okay.. But still are you sure you’re okay?” he asked
“Lucas.. I’m fine.. Don’t worry about me too much okay?” I said into the phone with a small smile
“how can I not worry about you? When you’re Daisy” he said.. What is that supposed to mean anyway
“okay.. Well what time should we meet?” I asked
“uhm since I’m not busy now let’s meet at exactly 2:15pm maybe we can go to the movies” he said
“err.. I’m not really into movies now” I said with a sigh
“okay well how about I come over to your place?” he said
“well suit yourself” I said and he replied with “got it” we hang up and I dropped my phone and head downstairs to eat breakfast.. Or lunch. Well it would be brunch actually..
I met my mom talking quietly in the living room and that was way too awkward they don’t even talk to each other? What moved them?? I ignored their conversation and head to the kitchen .since my mom’s at home I know the kitchen won’t be empty,.. She made homemade chicken soup and salad.. And I couldn’t hesitate to dig in, after eating and getting satisfied, I walked out of the kitchen and was about to go upstairs when the door bell suddenly ring and my mom and I shared a look before I went to get it..
Just who I guessed it was Lucas??
His smile was bright and his blue eyes were reflecting to the sun, making him look cute..
“hey” he said
“hi..come in” I said and he walked in..
he saw saw my parents and greeted them politely and they also replied politely and my mom gave me a look that says “who’s this?”
And her gave her a reply
“uhm.. This is my friend Lucas, from school” I said and my mom nods and was about to say something when I grabbed lucas by the hand and said “let’s go to my room” . . .
“wow your room is..–
“small?” I interrupted and he Chuckled “I was gonna say too girly but small works too” he smiled
“what do I need a wide room for anyway I just need a closet and a bed that’s all” I said and sat down on my bed and he sat down beside me..
“what about Ben?” he asked
“well he’s gone” I said
“well it’s a long story” I said and he gave me a pretty awkward look.. “Ben’s gone to meet his dad, turns out were not related after all” I said rapidly and he nods slowly..
“well Daisy,before it’s too late, I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a long time” Lucas said and I looked at him slowly and asked “what is it?” ..
“Daisy for a long time now.. I’ve had a crush on you a monster crush.. And I’ve come to realise I like you, so very very very much, and I would love it if you’d be my girl friend” he said and my heart skipped a bit.. No one and I mean no one has ever confessed to me before so this is what it feels like I’m frozen, I dont even know what to say..
I stammer not finding words to say..
“don’t worry you don’t have to say anything I’ll give you time to think about it” he said but still I was frozen..
“and lastly this is your dad’s room,now that I’ve showed you the entire mansion what would you like to do next” Heather asked and I shrugged and said “anything?”
“you know for a teenager, you’re really boring,” Heather said and I rolled my eyes… “thanks that means a lot” I said sarcastically and she scoffed .
“well if you need anything or want anything or want to do something just tell me and I’ll be in the living room” she said with a smile..
“ah.. Well I really want to do something” I said and she turned and said “what is it” I brought out my phone and went to my gallery and choose the picture me and Daisy snapped when her dad bought me a car…
“can I print this picture out?” I asked Heather as she gazed at the picture
“uhm.. Yeah sure, who is she if I may ask? Is she your girlfriend?” Heather asked
“she would have really hate the sound of that word girlfriend but still just keep it that way, that she’s my girlfriend” I said with a smirk and Heather gave me a confused look..
“well.. Okay sure I’ll send this to people who would print this out” Heather said and I smiled
“and.. Make sure they enlarge it and frame it and also I want it in my room on my wall above my bed” I said with a smile and she nods..
Oh Daisy, I wonder how she’s doing now???!!!
By RUTHIE LEE
“well still it’s nice that you get to meet your dad” I said and he smiled and said “thanks”
“well so I’m gonna be in my room if you need anything, just tell me” I said and I walked inside my room before he could say another word.. I moved closer to my bed and sat down gently, why the hell am I feeling this way..
I laid down on my bed and stared at my plain grey ceiling,
If Ben moves out from here would he charge school too, or would he even come visit us, or would he even.. Ugh why am I thinking about this..
My phone started ringing and when I looked at the caller it was Lucas
“hi” I said slowly into the phone
“hey Daisy did you get home safely?” he asked and I smiled
“I’m not a baby Lucas, your house isn’t that far from mine it’s just one street apart” I said and I could hear him chuckle
“yeah, just to make this a little bit not awkward just answer me” he said
“well yes I am actually lying on my bed” I said and he sighed
“see it wasn’t that hard.. So do you maybe want to hang out tomorrow?” he asked
Tomorrow! Sunday? Am I doing anything tomorrow?
“uh.. Well sure, we could hang out” I said, no matter how occupied I am, I still hang out with Lucas whenever he wants to..
“okay well thanks, see you tomorrow then” he said and I replied with an “okay bye” and we both hang up.. I sighed and turned to the other side of my bed.. Why am I feeling so down..
I closed my eyes and suddenly there was a knock on my door, I lazily stood up and walked up to my door and opened it and Ben was standing there..
“hey.. Uhm.. So I just ordered a pizza and I’m watching a movie and I was wondering if you’d like to join me,.. You know for the last five or six hours that we have left..you know, before I leave” he said with a grin and I nod..
“yeah sure why not” I said and he smiled, I closed my door and head downstairs with him.. “so Daisy about the kiss” Oh no, don’t remind me ben
“I’m sorry.. I was just well I don’t want to lie. ..well I-i I’m really sorry can you just forget about that” he asked and I nod “of course I knew you were just joking around I knew it was a mistake so no hard feelings” I said and he smiled and suddenly looked away..
I’d be glad to forget the kiss, but how can I when it was the most awkward thing ever …
“so what movie are you watching anyway?” I asked as we both walked to the couch and he as he sat down. “rise of zombie mutants” he said with a smile
“and I’m going to bed” I replied and was about to make a U turn while he stopped me and laughed
“I was just joking, I’m watching Twilight Saga he said and I sighed and sat down on the couch too..
“good, but if it turns out that it’s a stupid zombie movie, I won’t be the only one who’s going to have nightmares” I said threateningly and he laughed..
“but why aren’t you complaining about Twilight, what’s the difference between vampires and zombies?” he asked
“there is way more like ten thousand differences and the main one is vampires are cute, while zombies well they’re dead people who just have the ability to walk and eat human, so that gives you the ten thousand differences” I said
“well to me both of them are just the same, vampires are dead too” he said and I sighed
“vampires are dead but that’s the point that made them charming, while zombies are disfigured you can find their legs stuck to their face, so beat it Ben, and also Twilight is a romantic Vampire story, and who would want to watch a romantic zombie movie anyway” I said and rolled my eyes
“I would love to watch that” he said with a smile..
“eww Ben, you’re more disgusting than I thought” I said and he laughed..
We both stayed quiet and shot him a look and said
“what are you waiting for, turn on the TV”
“uhm.. Actually I was waiting for the pizza, I thought you are too” he said and I shook my head negatively..
“oh well sometimes our mind doesn’t work together” he grinned
“are you dumb? Our minds aren’t supposed to work together” I said and he nods.
“you know for a smart girl, you’re kind of dumb, some people minds actually work together” he said and I gave him a look while he smiled and nod… We heard the door bell and he stood up and got the door and it was the pizza delivery guy, Ben took our pizza and paid and then while we eat we watched Twilight..
I woke up and found myself lying on my bed, I turned slowly and turned on my bedside lamp, I stood up and glance at the time and it was 11:01pm , I must have fallen asleep while watching twilight with Ben,
But wait if I was on the couch with him and fell asleep, maybe he was the one who carried me here ..to my room!!! And on my bed!!…oh goodness..
Since I was thirsty I walked out of my room and head to the kitchen to get a glass of water and met my mom eating, I think the remaining pizza slices Ben and I left ..
“hey mom” I said lowly and grabbed a glass cup and filled it with water..
“hey sweetie, how did your day go” she asked
“okay” I said gulped down my water
“so I heard Ben saw.. Well I didn’t actually heard, Ben told me himself, how he met his dad, that must have been a wonderful moment but he is so lucky to be the son of Jerry Byers” my mom said
“Jerry who?” I asked
“Jerry Byers, you wouldn’t know him he’s famous around here I heard people talking about him, everyday at work and it’s true, that man is perfect in everything he does” my mom said and touched her chest in an emotional way
“well mom your mistake is that you should have married him before dad.. That would have made things a lot easier” I said teasingly and my mom smiled and rolled her eyes.. “look honey, your dad may have had or still having any affair with any woman claiming he loves her but let me tell you one thing, we are the people he loves most, he can’t survive a day without us, he loves us more than anything we’re his world so just give him some time to come out of his phase,” my mom and took the glass Cup from my hand and filled it with water
“well whatever I’m going to bed, goodnight” I say and kissed my mom cheeked
“nighty-night sweety” she said as I walked out of the kitchen ..
I went back to my room and fall right on my bed.. And before I knew it I fell asleep..
I woke up the next morning by the sound of voices coming from downstairs, my stomach grumbled and throat went stiff and I quickly rushed to my bathroom and puked in my toilet.. Not a nice morning I just vomited last night pizza, great!.. The morning was cold and I was feeling cold too.. I grabbed a huge thick sweater from my closet and wore it on top my pajamas I laid back on my bed and tried to fall asleep but it was no use , the morning coldness and the noise from downstairs all just making me not being able to fall asleep..
I stood up and walked to my door , I opened it and walked to the stairs, from the stairs I stared at the people in the living room, it was my mom, dad Ben and a man about my dad’s age I think but he looks younger and looks so much like Ben.. At first Ben looked like my dad the first time he came here but that’s just a combination from my imagination, cause now Ben is the exact replica of his father.. Ben and the man who I assume is Jerry stood up and Jerry shook my dad hand and my mom’s, Ben looked up and saw me and he excused himself from the grownups and came to me..
“hey good morning” he said with a smile
“good morning to you too” I said
“you’re up early” he said
“yeah I couldn’t sleep it’s kind of cold” I said and he nods
“well this is it.. I’m finally going I’m going home even though it wouldn’t be the same without your parents and especially you, at least i have someone I can dad, thanks Daisy for everything” he said with a serious look on his face..
Is he trying to get me to cry or something because if he is it’s already working
“uhm no.. It’s nothing. What are friends for” I said and cleared my throat, wait, are we even friends cause we ain’t siblings anymore I don’t even know what to call “us”
“so you want me to introduce you to my dad?” he asked
“no it’s okay you don’t need to maybe next time” I say and he nods..
“okay then I’ll be going then take care, but before I leave won’t I receive a hug or something” he smiled, while I just stared at him
“cause that’s what they do in mov–
I cut him off immediately by hugging me and he hugged me back and we both stayed like that for like four seconds before disengaging, I waved him goodbye as he walked down the stairs and he waved back too.. I went back to my room and slammed the door so hard that I’m pretty sure everyone heard it..
Why does this feel so weird and awkward and why do I feel even more cold
It’s not like he’s dying or something and why the hell am I in tears!.
