Ehm… I retrieved myself, shaking my head slightly…. good afternoon…. sir, I said forcefully, he smiled and asked if my boss was in before I could give him an answer, my boss’ office door was ajar, “My son….” his son? My head resounded at the statement,” …how’s your father?” …wow!, I sigh with relief. They both went into his office, my heart started beating so fast that within twenty minutes, I finished two bottles of water.
As soon as I sipped the last drop of water, ‘prince charming’ and my boss were out of the office, my boss was with his briefcase, I’m finally going home, I broke the news in my heart. I hastily checked prince charming’s left ring finger to know if he’s taken or not, I like what I see, he isn’t taken. “Joy, I’m leaving, see you tomorrow” my boss said. My gaze was constantly on the cute guy behind my boss, “Alright sir” I uttered. “So, Alex when you get home tell your father I’ll….” He cut his statement when he realised Alex isn’t moving with him. “I’m sorry sir, I didn’t tell you, Joy and I were secondary school mates, so I’d love to wait behind sir” he said. Did he just deceive my boss so he can get to see me in private? My heart jumped with joy… “Really? “my boss muttered with a doubtful look but he shrugged and takes his leave.
It’s just Alex and I now, my God, this guy is amazingly cute, is he from this planet at all? “I’m Alex” he broke the silence, and “I’m Joy” I replied hastily. “Can I drop you at home?” he asked. Yes, I answered in my heart but on a second thought, I didn’t say yes to him instead, I asked “Why did you lie to Mr Roland that we were schoolmates? “ . My question surprised him but I deserve to know, I shouldn’t just run into his open arms. “I just said what came to my mind so I can get to talk to you” he answered. I don’t want to be too inquisitive so I told him to drop me at the nearest bus stop to my flat. We moved out of the office in silence, he opened the door for meto get into the car, “impressive”, I thought. We drove for 20minutes without a word, once again he broke the silence. “How are doing?” he asked, “I’m cool” I replied. Just then, his phone rang and he parked to receive his call…” Hello Sweetie, I’m fine, sure I’m on my way, but I want to drop a friend off” My head spinned, what’s this game? my heart began to boil but then, wait a minute, he hasn’t said anything to me. As soon as he ended the call, he smiled and said “I’m sorry for the delay, that was my girlfriend” I smiled in pretence like I enjoyed their conversation. My head started clearing every fantasy have held in my head about the both of us, I really felt stupid, I’ve started planning a future with a stranger, right in my head. As soon as we got to the bus stop, he took a sharp turn into my street, I pointed my finger giving directions to my place, “thank you” I said with a smile. I unfasten the seatbelt, opened the door, just when my right foot was out the pulled my arm, I threw my face in his direction, our faces became so close that any slight movement can lead to a kiss, we were in that position for some seconds before he demanded for my number, my heart was filled with confusion, I gave my number and left the car with a mind filled with much confusion.
I left my phone on silent mode last night and I woke to find twenty missed calls from Alex and three text messages, “I’m just checking on you and thanks for being my friend” I don’t know if to be happy, sad or angry at him, what do I need in a male at this age if not a marital ting? and he’s claiming friendship, nonsense. I hissed and dropped my phone in anger,it’s a Saturday, I cleaned up and went back to bed, I didn’t even notice Tania’s absence since last night, because I came in tired and all I could do was take a cold shower and lay in my bed. I noticed a note on the dining table that read : “ Joy, I wanted to inform you this morning that I won’t be coming home this night, , but you were in a rush to work. Akin wants me to stay at his place over the weekend . I’ll be back on Monday evening.” Love you Tania.
I grew jealous again but I won’t be mean, Tania might be younger than I am but has been a really good friend to me, I just have to conquer this silly jealousy in my heart before i do something stupid. I didn’t return Alex’s call or messages, I still can’t find the reason. I was sitting in a seat watching ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ when I decided to change my phone’s audio setting to ringing, it was as if someone has been watching me on a CCTV camera, because my phone started ringing immediately I changed the setting. I checked the screen and I became angry……….
