Rachael finally regained consciousness after some minutes. She moved slowly aside and looked at her husband who sat close to her. “Honey what happened?”

“How are you feeling Honey? You scared me.” Nosa answered her.

“I think I’m okay ” She said and stood up and sat next to Nora on the chair. She looked around and sighted Joe and Nathan far opposite watching her. Nathan found it hard to look straight at his mother.

It finally dawned on Rachael and she looked at Nora and Nosa and started crying. ” I am so sorry.”

“Sorry? You are sorry? Is that all you can say? ” Nora responded. “Mum tell me if this man here is not your former husband and this young man here Nathan is not your son. Please I need an answer. Nothing but the truth.”

“Nora what are you talking about?” Nosa asked in shock. “Are you saying she’s married to that man before. And who are these people?” he asked looking at Joe and Nathan. “Can someone tell me what’s going on here before I lose my mind?”

Nora stood up still crying. Dad ask your wife. That’s the same answer I’m seeking here.”

Racheal felt embarrassed, ashamed all she could do then was to cry. She never envisaged such a thing would happen. It dawn on her that truth can never be hidden forever. Just like Joe, the past had come to haunt her. It became worse for her when she saw the disgusting look on Nathan and she quickly read his mood. She knew the time had come to finally let the cat out of the bag.

“I’m sorry honey” she told Nosa who was looking at her to confirm the horrible thing Nora had just said.

“It’s true I was married before you? this man here, his name is Joe and the one next to him is my son. I left him when he was still a baby..”

“What!” Nosa shouted “You mean you had a family before I met you and you are just telling me this now? Racheal I have lived my life for you. I did every thing for you even moving here from my base to suit your wishes and despite all you hid all these from me? You deceived me Racheal.” Nosa shouted in anger.

“I can explain Nosa. Please am sorry” she said kneeling before her husband.

Nora quickly interrupted “Well, tell him that you abandoned a one day old baby too mum. How could you be so heartless?”

“I’m sorry my daughter I never wanted or wished all these to happen.” Racheal looked at Nora

who kept nodding her head and tears in her eyes.

“Your sorry doesn’t count mum. It doesn’t matter anymore. it’s too late for that. You have no idea of the damage you have caused me and your son and what we have committed. For crying out loud you should have said something like this earlier before I could fall in love with my brother!” she screamed so high.

Racheal looked at her daughter and then Nathan. “You mean.. You are… You have had…?”

“Oh yeah!” Nathan spoke. “You are the worst mother I have ever met in my life. You don’t deserve being a mother ” he spat on the floor. “In fact, forget that I even exist. because for me you are nothing. I buried my real and true mother. The woman who gave her life for me despite the fact that she didnt give birth to me. She paid the price and suffered consequences of marrying this your husband here” he said pointing at his father. “And both of you can not be compared to her. You both are evil” he said angrily,

his eyes filled with tears which he tried fighting back.

Racheal stood up to walk to him. “I’m sorry my son please forgive me. I was not strong enough. Please I beg you in the name of God forgive me, I’m your mother and I love you. I loved you the first time I saw you. please you have to understand..” she cried

“Don’t come near me woman, you are not my mother. Don’t you get it. I don’t want anything to do with you, nothing! stay away from my life like you have done for twenty seven years. I hate you for ruining my life. I didnt ask for all these” Nathan cried. “I never begged you both to bring me to this God forsaken life and now the woman that I have loved turns out to be my sister and all you can say is sorry.” He told her sternly. “What do you want from me? Alright you want me to tell you I slept with my sister, that I can’t even stay away from her even after I was told it’s forbidden? Ahah! Tell me both of you, how do you expect us to forgive you and forget what has happened? You and this man here ” he added looking at his father who sat head down crying. “you and him couldnt live and settle your issues and now we are the ones to suffer.” He shouted uncontrollably.

Nora was crying sadly. Nosa held her close as tears ran his face too. He felt for his daughter. He could remember how excited and happy she sounded on the phone conversion as she told him about her boyfriend. Now he had no words. Knowing his wife had such a shocking secret hidden all these years they spent together was hurting him hard as well.

He now understood why she was the way he found her and why for some years she never opened her heart to him. He had to be patient for them to reach that far. Now that things where okay between them, the past had resurfaced. He felt for Nathan too. The boy was was badly hurt. Also, Joe looked devasted, he wondered why Racheal had to make all those people go through such ordeal. Even her excuse of having a misbehaving husband didn’t amount to the pain the people in that room were suffering. He couldn’t say anything because he had no idea what to do at that moment.

His love for Racheal was however stronger than the pain. He went to her she knelt and lifted her. She was so much hurt. He could feel her heart.

“I’m sorry please, what else can I say to you all. Please I’m sorry. You both cannot be together. I gave birth to both of you.” she said while sobbing.

“I’m sorry Joe” she looked at her former husband. “Forgive me for leaving like that. I was badly hurt and didnt think through things.”

Joe nodded silently. “It’s your son you are supposed to apologise to Racheal.”

Nora couldn’t take it any more. Deep down she had hoped all the events were just a dream. She wished that her mother would tell her she was not Nathan’s mother and that she would somehow end up with him and live a normal life. She looked at the devastated Nathan, the pain in Joe and her father’s eyes, shaking her head, she lifted the long dress she was wearing and ran as fast as she could to the kitchen.

Nathan followed her and she slammed the door before he could catch up. The door was transparent because it was made up of glass so Nathan could see through it. “Stop it now Nora!” He screamed when he saw her holding something like a knife. She held the longest knife. “I’m sorry Nathan!” she shouted crying. “I cant live any more.”

“No! Please Noooooo!” He screamed. His noise attracted everyone in the sitting room. They all rushed and stood by the door watching and screaming.

They saw how she raised the knife and stabbed herself. She fell. Her dress quickly soaked in a pool of blood.

“Nora!” Nosa screamed. “No my baby, please someone open this door!” he shouted desperately while Racheal fell slowly back to the floor her hands on her mouth.

Nathan quickly took the flower base next to him and broke the glass into smithereens. He put his hand Inside and unlocked the door, he slowly pulled out the knife while Nora gasping, tried to talk but her head fell unconscious on Nathan’s lap.

“Oh Nora please don’t do this to me” He quickly lifted her and rushed to his car.

“We need to take her to the hospital” He told Nosa who followed him immediately.

“Pray she lives!” Nathan told Racheal when he saw her following them outside. “Better pray she survives or else…”

Delaney’s pov
“Calm down Delaney! Now breath.” Xavier’s mom said calmly and held my already shaking body — which was actually because of fear.

“He’s trapped in there! What are we going to do?” I panicked.

She held my hands and we both went to stand in front of the TV, and luckily for me, Xavier was still there, but this time, he was smiling.

Gosh! He looked extremely beautiful and cute.

Xavier’s mom eyes dimmed and she suddenly bursted into a hysterical laughter.

“Oh my Delaney!” She laughed harder and held her stomach.

I looked at her in disbelief, wondering why she was suddenly laughing when there’s a serious issue at hand.

Wasn’t she supposed to be panicking and thinking of a way to bring out her son?

And what exactly is funny?

“You want to give me an heart attack for no reason!” She laughed, but this time, softly.

“I don’t understand you ma’am.” I spoke out my mind, with me staring confusingly at her.

“It’s mom Delaney, mom. You should stop calling me ma’am.” She said instead with a slight frown.

“Okay, mom.” I sighed.

“Well, Xavier isn’t trapped. He was doing a commercial.” She laughed.

I creased my eyebrows in confusion and stared intently at her.

“Oh! I know that look. You don’t understand right?” She asked and smiled lightly.

I nodded my head, not knowing exactly what to say.

“Well, you see, Xavier is into what we call modelling and other commercials.

He’s to dress for a particular company and advertise to the public by showing it on TV.

I don’t really know how to explain it for you to understand better.” She sighed.

“It’s fine ma’am. Even if I don’t entirely understand, I got to know that Xavier and other people shown on TV aren’t trapped.

They are there for some reasons and right now, Xavier is safe.” I smiled.

“Wow! You are just as brilliant as I thought.” She beamed widely.

My cheeks heat up at her compliment. I bent my head shyly and mentally screamed happily.

Xavier’s pov
“Hey dude, are you even listening to me at all.” Rio’s voice snapped me out of my reverie.

I turned sharply to stare at him.

“What were you thinking about Xavier? You just zoned out and I’ve been calling you like since forever but you wouldn’t answer me.” Rio sighed and touched my shoulder.

I exhaled deeply and stared at the ceiling.

“Nothing.” I said at last.

“Really Xavier? Nothing?” He scoffed.

Wait, how do I tell him that ever since that girl — Delaney, grabbed my d*ck I haven’t been able to get her off my mind.

Sometimes, I end up thinking of how to screw her mercilessly.

Mere reminiscing about that day, I do have erections and it’s always very annoying.

And one thing I hate and I don’t do is to masturbate.

I really need to do something before that girl finally succeed in making me want her desperately.

I sighed and stared at Rio who had an expectant look.

“Seriously Rio, I’m fine.” I smiled assuringly.

“Xavier!” He suddenly gasped loudly.

I rolled my eyes and hissed lowly.

“What? Why did you gasp like you were gonna freak out!” I groaned.

“You already have an erection!” He gasped. And that was when I bent my head to see my d*ck hard and bulgy against my trouser.

“F*ck!” I cussed angrily as I stared at my hard on.

I felt greatly embarrassed and I felt like entering into the ground.

“Yeah.” I shrugged like it’s nothing — but it’s sure more like a big deal to me.

Like what the hell?

Having a hard on just because of mere thinking of a girl I don’t even like.

Gosh! I think I’m going crazy!

I need to see the doctor.

“You know what? Let’s just go f*ck some bitches.” Rio said at last and I was glad he broke the awkward silence.

I was too embarrassed to even say anything.

“Sure.”

Alicia’s pov
“Alicia!” I heard mom call out to me. I grumbled and put away with the strange necklace.

I got down from my bed and left my room.

I got downstairs and met mom in the kitchen.

“Yes mom, you called me.” I grumbled.

“Yeah, I did. I want you to help me in preparing dinner.

You’ve been sleeping while I haven’t rested a bit.” Mom hissed.

“Yeah, sorry mom.” I said, more like a whisper.

As I help mom to chop the vegetable, my mind drifted to the necklace.

I haven’t seen anyone to buy it at a high price and I really want to sell it off to get some money.

I’ve tried selling it off at different places but nobody seems really interested in it.

And even if they are, it’d be at a cheaper price not even enough for even a sweatband.

Do I just return it or should I keep it?

Gosh! I feel totally confused.

The look on the girl’s face on the day she lost the necklace, was something that I could easily tell and understand.

She values it so much and she looked really sad when she lost it.

But why’s it so important to her?

Is it something special?

But why does it look really strange — I haven’t seen a thing like that before.

Thinking about it now, it’s of no use to me.

Should I sell it at a cheaper rate or just return it?

*

Xavier’s pov

“Xavier?” I heard my name being called gently as my door opened and closed.

I turned and saw Delaney enter into my room looking damn nervous and innocent.

I was actuay on my bed operating on my laptop.

“Hey! What do you want?!” I asked rudely and turned fully to look at her.

“Well, erm… I don’t have a laptop at home and I just got to remember that we were given an assignment to work on.

So, I was wondering if you could help me with it with your laptop.” She stated calmly, looking so innocent and cute.

“Really?” I scoffed and sat on top of my bed to have a proper look on her well curvy body.

Her boobs are firm and well erected, I sure know it’ll feel so soft when I fondle with them.

“Please.” She pouted softly and I felt like slamming her back against the wall and forcefully kiss her insanely.

Those lips!

Geez!
I shook my head and got down from my bed.

I took low strides towards her with her hands fondling nervously with the hem of her shirt.

She looked so cute.

Gosh! Why does she have to be this beautiful?

She stood still with her gaze still on her feet.

I got to where she stood and brought her closely to my body.

Her boobs were on my chest while my hands were wrapped firmly around her waist.

I licked my lips and stared at her small but pink lips.

It looked really good for kissing.

Her breathe hitched as she gaped at me.

“Do you really want me to give you my laptop and also help you out with your assignment?” I smirked and trailed my finger down to her cleavage.

She shuddered and looked everywhere, but not my face.

“Yes.” She nodded nervously.

“Then, kiss me!”

JASON.
I grabbed the glass of water for Elsa and head back to my room.
I opened the door and found her on my seat, seeing me, she went back to hers and sat down. I dropped the glass of water in front of her and she gulped the whole thing down and thanked me.
“You’re welcome!” I said and sat down.
She dropped the glass on the study desk and Turned to me.
“Do you want to go on a date with me?”
I thought I heard wrong but I didn’t and turned to her immediately.
“What?” I asked, to be sure.
She blinked rapidly and let’s out a sigh.
“Just forget I said that!” she laughed.
“Of course I would love to!” I smiled.
“So you heard me the first time!” she narrowed her eyes at me.
“I wanted to be sure.” I looked away.
“Your sure-ness wanted to leave me in an awkward state!” she added and I grinned and let out a “sorry”
“But wait!” I turned to her. “You’re still with Neil and-
“And that’s why you should forget, I ever said that, I didn’t know what I was thinking.” She said feeling awkward about asking me out.
Like Elsa, just asked me out and I’m about to blow it.
No, not today!
“I can never forget that and I really want to go on a date with you and I take back my words please!” I quickly apologised.
She sighed and turned to me. “Okay so… I think that was a mistake and I want to apologise for it!” she said.
“Apologize?” I was lost.
“Apologize for what?” I asked.
“While you were getting my cup of water, I saw your chat with Donald where you said, you haven’t gotten over me, and so I want to apologize for prying through your messages and for also asking you out, out of sympathy, I wanted to ask you out to make you feel better because that was what Donald suggested on your text messages and I thought, maybe if you really go on one date with me, maybe you’ll get over me! I mean you will right?” She asked.
I don’t know! But what matters is that, she’s almost agreeing on going on a date with me.
“Of course!” I nodded.
“Good, but now thinking about it, I’ve been pretty selfish!” she sighed.
“Selfish? How do you mean?” I asked.
She glanced at me. “oh, it’s something I can’t explain, but don’t worry, it’s something only I can understand!”
“O…kay…” I didn’t know what to say.
“So can we just continue on our topic!” she said and started to turn the pages of the math text book.
And I angrily closed the book. Letting the book cover slam the pages hard.
“No we can’t, you can’t do this to me Elsa!” I couldn’t take it anymore. “I opened up my feelings for you, I tried to get over you but I couldn’t, I don’t care if you read my fucking text because I am seriously happy you read that, because it let you say out those words, if you’re so embarrassed to say it again, I understand but I will never be embarrassed to say, Elsa, will you go on a date with me, just a date, a one time thing and nothing else…Please!” I added the please when it looked like she was about to disagree.
“Look Jason, I just broke up with Neil because I agreed to date him out of pity, but it didn’t work out well because I did all that because of the sympathy I had in me. And now I’m doing it again, asking you out, out of pity, I’ve been a bad person enough, and pity just ruins everything!” she yelled.
The fact that she broke up with Neil, just made today even better.
I tried to hold my excitement.
“I don’t care if you asked me out, out of pity or any selfish reason or whatsoever, I’ll take anything coming from you, I don’t care if I’m being used by you too!” I stated and didn’t know what kind of impact my words meant to her, but she remained quiet for a while, with a surprised expression written all over her face.

Finally she let’s out a sigh. “it’s just a one time date, this Saturday and after that, we speak nothing about it!”
“That is better than okay, thank you so much Elsa!” I smiled.
She bit her bottom lip still looking worried.
“What’s wrong!” I asked.
She sighed. “It’s about the date, don’t you think it’d be awkward.!”
“Why do you say so?” I was suddenly hurt.
She looked at me and for some reason, I understood that gaze perfectly.
“Still worried about the age difference huh?” it was really sad.
“I mean what would people say?” she shrugged at me.
“Uh. That is none of their fucking business and people would say nothing because I look really older than you!” I let her know.
She shut her eyes and opened them back again.
“I get the point, you’re a boy, you look almost older than Neil too. but still to me you’re still… Younger”
“Okay, I have to ask, what is it with you and age?” I calmly asked.
She shrugged. “I don’t know, my dad’s older than my mom, and most people I’ve seen are like that too. It’s like an etiquette of couples or marriage or something and I think it’s always been like that it’s gotten into my head.!”
I shook my head at her. “I don’t think thats it!”
“Then what is?” she asked.
“You’re smart, I’m not giving you a compliment but a plain white honesty, you’re really smart, you’ve been smart your whole life and know a lot of thing about almost every single thing and people around you, you feel like you know too much and don’t need to be impacted by more, you feel like you could contain that smartness and can actually bring the best of it whenever you want to and that’s nice but when it comes to the case of relationships or stuffs similar to it, you bring in your smartness which is not supposed to be fully required. And I don’t know about Neil, but to me, you feel like I’m this kid who suddenly grew this stupid feelings for you and doesn’t know what he’s doing, sorry but there’s no book that warns ‘don’t fall for older or younger people’ there is no law that abides that, and looking at me, you feel like I’m not up to your standards or preferance and I’ll always be this kid you tutor, you feel like even if we happen to be in a relationship, there’s nothing I can bring up to your smartness, you follow everything your head tells you and not ready to change that. Your smartness kills the relationship impacts in your head, I’m not saying we should be in a relationship or so, but in a relationship you don’t bring in smartness, because smartness kills the vibes it kills the aura, In relationships, people bring in lust! And dumbness for it to go smoothly, they don’t let their heads judge age for them to be in love, but let their hearts decide for them!”.
Wow. I can’t believe I said all that.
Elsa let’s out a small breathable smile.
“You’re actually pretty smart yourself you know that?”.
“Yeah I know!” I shrugged.
Her smile faded and she suddenly looked sad.
“Well, now. I don’t know what to say. Your words left me completely speechless, congratulations, now can we continue on our topic?” she said and I sighed. “Sure! Why not!”
She’s not even planing to make an impact on what I just said.
Well I’ll just let her be who she wants to be.
She started to explain the next topic and it looked too easy and I was getting bored, I didn’t let her explain finish, I just interrupted her and told her to give me a question to work on.
She did as I said and I started to work on the questions.
I glanced at her severly from the corners of my eyes, but she didn’t notice, she just stared at her phone.
I continued working on the questions until I glanced at her to see her stylishly wiping the corners of her eyes.
Huh?
Is she in tears?
“Elsa? Are you okay?” I asked.
She turned to me quickly, “Why would you ask that, of course I’m okay!”
I saw no tears on her face so I quickly observed her eyelashes to see it wet.
Busted.
She sure was in tears, but I wasn’t going to pry or ask why so I minded my business cause that’s what a real gentleman could do.

#ELSA.
I WAS FEELING like shit, I was feeling like the worst, every thing Jason said, every word he spoke about calling it a plain white honesty, every sentence he made was true, that is how I am.
And I’m not even that smart.
But I’m also not Letting my heart decide, but my head.
I also want to go somewhere, I also want to fall in love, I could fall in love with anyone I want to, I could have let Neil in again if I wanted to. But I didn’t, I bottled up my heart and let my head do all the work.
I was being selfish to myself and that wasn’t healthy.
I can totally be wherever I want with someone, if only I can just open my heart and let them in.
It’s time to look for the key of this rusty old beating heart at the left side of chest. It’s time to look for the probably rusty keys too and open my heart up. I can even let the whole world in, if I want to, I shouldn’t feel smart about everything, and age… Age doesn’t really matter. All Jason had said was nothing but the truth and his speech should be said with confettis coming out of his mouth! Because that was a whole lot of sincere truth. How did he get to find out what was bottled up inside me.
But well I think it’s time.

I dropped my phone on the bed and looked sideways not knowing what to say.
Thankfully Jason is working to get over his feelings for me.
But then Neil is at the other end, he went to get himself drunk and now he is blurting out all this, about how he loves me and I don’t love him back. And now he wants us to break up because we can never be perfect together.
That guilty feeling seized in my chest as I saw the missed calls from Jason and Neil.
Well especially Neil, because of everything he said through the voice mail.
If only I let him kiss me, he wouldn’t have…
I sighed and laid back on the bed with, dropping my phone on top of my drawer beside the bed.
Everything happens for a reason and I didn’t kiss him because I didn’t feel like it and cause I didn’t feel the same way he felt for me.
There’s a reason behind why he didn’t notice my feelings for him back then in high school, maybe we’re not meant to be, and we can’t force what’s not meant to be.
Bananas goes with bananas, mangoes goes with mangoes, you can’t force banana and mangoes go together.
I closed my eyes and made my head comfortable around the pillow.
And before I knew it, I was fast a sleep.
I woke up that same morning by eight a.m and quickly went to have my bath, my mom and dad would be home soon too.
After washing up and having breakfast, I called my mom and she told me, they just left the hospital.
I decided on calling Neil, I wanted to talk to him while he is sober, what he sent last night was still making me feel bad. I wanted to make things right.
Thankfully Neil picked up immediately as I called him.
And his cheerful hello sounded from the other side of the phone.
“HI… Neil?” I breathed out.
“How are you doing?” He asked calmly.
“Fine… I guess, you?”
“I’m fine!” He said.
“Okay, so i revieved you voice note…” I said hesitantly.
I heard the sigh and bit my bottom lip. “I know, I didn’t know i sent that until this morning that was stupid of me!” Neil laughed nervously.
“You were really drunk last night, are you okay now?” I asked.
“Well I’m fine now, and I really needed that so it’s okay!” Neil laughed.
We both remained quiet until he added. “And about everything I said!”.
My breathing hitched as I continued to listen to him.
“I meant everything I said though, and I don’t really think we’re meant to be, you understand right?” Neil stated.
“Neil, if it’s about that kiss, we ca–
“Can maybe what?” Neil interrupted, “We can kiss again? You’re pretty funny Elsa, but it’s not about the kiss, I just don’t see an us, I don’t… Look I fucked up by not noticing your feelings then and now it’s the other way round. But don’t worry I am not having any regrets, we can just be friends Elsa, just like always okay?” I could feel his smile from the phone and I couldn’t believe my ears.
He is such… he is very understanding.
“Thank you!” was all I could stay.
“You’re welcome. You don’t have feelings for me and I cannot force that, just be who you want to be and love who you want to love. Lately I’ve come to be very understanding and sorry if I said any word that hurt you through my voice mail” Neil said and I nodded and breathed out a “No! You didn’t”.
I smiled at his gentle words and understanding heart.
“Okay thanks again!” I sighed.
“No problem” Neil said and we both hung up. The guilty feeling left my chest as a small smile curved up on my face.
Neil is so nice.

I heard as the sound of the front door and I quickly rushed to the door to see my mom and Dad walking inside the house, my mom was looking good, like nothing ever happened and my Dad looked like he could really use another sleep for another forty eight hours.
I welcomed my mom with a hug and she wouldn’t stop smiling.
I walked her back to her room and when we both settled down on her bed she started to ask me about work and other things.
And then she asked about Neil all of a sudden.
“Oh Neil is fine!” I replied and I don’t know what was wrong with my tone but she asked.
“What’s up with your tone, is he not fine?” she narrowed her eyes at me.
“Huh?” I was confused.
“The way you said ‘Neil is fine’ sounded like he’s not fine!”. My mom stated.
“Oh” I laughed. “Well my bad, but he’s actually fine.” I added.
“Hmm… Okay are you guys fine?” my mom blurted.
I gave her a look. “You mean, are we fine individually, or you mean our relationship?”.
“Your relationship!” My mom plainly stated.
“Well we’re fine being friends!” I smiled.
“Friends?” my mom gave a bewildered look.
“Yeah, we broke up few minutes ago!” I said like it was nothing, and my mom let out the loudest gasp ever.
“What?” she yelled.
“You just came back from the hospital mom, remember your state!” I reminded.
“I don’t care, why did you guys break up, you were both a perfect couple!” my mom said.
“Really a perfect couple!?” I scoffed.
“Huh?” My mom said.
“It’s really a big ‘huh?’ mom, cause Neil and I are not the so called perfect couple you’re saying, everyone calls a perfect couple or relationships when you and your boyfriend has the perfect height distance, or when you’re pretty and your boyfriend is also pretty, or when you guys laugh out loud for people to hear all the time. That is not a perfect couple, well it is on the outside for the eyes of people, but people should focus more on the inside to judge if it’s really a perfect couple or not, mom sincerely, I used to have a crush on Neil back then in highschool but he never noticed me, well it was a one sided love so it was nothing big though. And now the feeling’s all gone and he started to develop feelings for me and asked me out, I accepted his feelings out of pity cause I didn’t want him to feel bad and now I feel bad cause now I feel like I’ve made him felt worse, but he’s always so bottled up with his feelings and always tries to be understanding. I like that about him but it’s not good, he told me we should break up, he knows I don’t share the same feelings for him so he decided on the break up!” I rushed the whole words i said and my mom blinked rapidly.
“That is… I don’t know what to say but I sure do know what thing, rejecting someone is far better than accepting them out of pity, if you don’t like them, just let them know, and being In a relationship you don’t want to be in, is just so bad!” my mom stated and I sighed.
“I know, I shouldn’t have done that, but it’s okay now, we’ve resolved everything between us!” I said with a small sigh.
“Okay dear, whatever you do just know I’m always in full support!” my mom smiled and I nodded.
“So would you like to eat anything!?” I asked.
“Nope, I ate a huge burger on my way back, so I’m more than full, and shouldn’t you be getting ready for work?” my mom asked.
“Work doesn’t start until three, and it’s just twelve p.m” I reminded her and she nods.
*

Time was slow that day but the usual television shows helped, till it was time for me to go to work, like I slept so much I feel so energetic. And also feel so happy, because of what Neil did, he’s so understanding and I hope he finds someone better than me, someone who deserves the sweet and understanding Neil that I know.
I smiled at the sun, when I got inside the bus, it was beaming so bright and it just gave a cheerful vibe.
I was happy and cheerful at that moment and I loved the feeling, let’s be happy, we only live once.
I got to the Huggins residence and in no time, I found myself inside the house.
I found Mrs. Huggins in the living room talking to Dessera about something and when she noticed me, she held up the most beautiful smile ever.
“Elsa!” she called happily.
“Hi Mrs. Huggins!”.
She doesn’t have to work or go to work, when you have a filthy and Rich husband you get to stay home all day in fancy looking clothes and Shoes…
Mrs. Huggins never seemed to fail me with her dresses.
“Oh, so glad you’re here, Jason has finally get a hold of himself and as a better mom, I apologized to him for what I did.” Mrs. Huggins said happily.
“Oh that’s great!” I added.
“I know right?” she smiled.
I nodded and told her I’ll be in Jason’s room now.
She nodded and I left for Jason’s room.
.
I gave a small knock on the door. And heard a “You can come in!” from the inside.
I pushed the white door open and walked in his already too familiar room.
Surprisingly, Jason was already waiting at his study desk for me. And I couldn’t be more proud. So good he’s pushing the feeling things aside.
I sat down beside him and adjusted the chair away from his, just a bit, so we won’t bump into each other if we try to lift our elbows up or more.
I dropped my bag on the desk and breathed out a “Hi”.
“Hi” Jason replied. He remained quiet for a while before turning to me… “Okay so can we make this lesson the normal way it is before, instead of saying stupid ‘Hi’s and hellos, it’s awkward and stupid” Jason ranted.
“Well sorry to burst your bubbles, but you did reply me, so I guess we’re both freaks them” I raised my brows at him and he rolled his eyes.
And that was how the before atmosphere came back.
We both worked on some topics and Jason was really back on track cause he understood everything I was explaining, no more lost in thoughts or even finding zoned out.
Well he understands it’s for the best, it’s lovely how two of the guys who loves me are understanding. And I used to think Jason was childish. Well I take back all my words.
Jason solved all the whole equations without making a single mistake and I complimented him for his good work.
I started to flip the pages of the textbook to know what topic to work on next, while Jason was quiet, actually busy with his phone though.
I finally found a topic and called for his attention and he immediately dropped his phone and turned to me.
Well I started to make an explanation on the topic and before I knew it, my saliva clogged on my throat and I started to cough. Well that is a normal incident for everyone. But Jason quickly told me not to worry that he’d get me a glass of water immediately and dashed out of the room before I could protest.
I sighed, as I stood straight still watching the door. Guess I was too late, well I could really use a glass of water, I’ve been talking non stop.
I sat on Jason’s chair and sighed again. His phone blinked and turned on, I didn’t mean to pry but he was having a text conversation with the participant ‘Donald’ I remember the Donald guy being his friend.
I didn’t want to read his text conversation but the message I saw made me to. And it was Jason who sent it to donald.

**I act like I’m okay, but I know deep down I’m not, I have to be okay, unless I won’t see her again. Or at least I have to pretend I’m okay in order for her to be here**

Why didn’t he put a lock on his phone??

Curiously I read the next text and the next text and the next one.

Donald: *You are never going to be okay just know that*
Jason: *Try to be positive, I’m dying here, like she’s here beside me, I can’t take it*.
Donald: *To my own thinking, I think you’ll be fine if you just go on one date with her, maybe that would take your mind off awkward things, you’ll really get to see who she really is despite the teacher role.*
Jason: *A date with her? That sounds nice but are you going to ask her out for me cause I can’t, so don’t ever think a date is happening you prick*
Donald:*Your problem, not mine, you dweeb*

And that was the message that came in.
I stood up and sat back on my chair.
And here I am thinking he was over me. But he’s not.
The door opened and Jason walked in with a glass of water.

“Thanks” I said as he dropped the water in front of me. Thankfully his phone has slept off again.
“You welcome!” He said as he sat down.
I gulped down the whole glass and turned to him.. And out of nowhere I said.
“Do you want to go on a date with me?”
