I went inside Palm Court Country Club and headed for the restaurant. Natalie and Katz were already there, signalling me to come over. Smiling, I walked there and sat between them.
“I miss you!” we said in unision.
“You are so paying for our lunch today!” said Natalie.
“Nat’s right! Anyway, I was just telling Nat that I’m finally getting married to Mr. Darcy!” said Katz.
“OH, MY GOD! Mr Darcy? You mean The Mr Darcy, Ryan Collins? I’m so happy for you, Katz! I have to be your bridesmaid!” I screamed excitedly. It felt wonderful to know that Katz was finally getting married! Ryan Collins, her boyfriend of 5 years, had asked her to marry him during their 5th anniversary celebration.
We spent an hour updating each other on the latest events and gossips. It was so good to bond with and chat with the girls. We exchanged secrets and happenings but no matter how great friends we were, I swore I would never, ever to let them know I had a tiny fling with a girl.
After lunch, I went down town and went on a shopping spree. I badly needed a dress for my date with Alex, a hot cutie whom I met at a charity party held by his company. He often invited the Jenn Models Company (JMC) as he and the JMC CEO were close friends.
I bought so many items such Chanel’s latest Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss, a black Topshop body con skirt, a red bustier from Mango and a bow belt from Banana Republic. At half past three in the afternoon, I was in August 8 trying out the 100th dress. Making the assistant work hard was one of the best bits about shopping. After all, it was her job to keep customers like me, happy. After a long time, I decided to get the cotton floral maxi dress. The assistant wiped her forehead with relief. Noticing her relief, I made her get me pair of sunglasses… just for fun.
She came running to me, panting and passed the sunglasses to me.
“Eeek, what a horrid colour! And they’re sticky and icky! Take them back!” I said.
I was pretty sure she felt like killing me. Laughing hard inside, I paid for my dress and made my way out of August 8. Outside the door, I burst out laughing.
Then I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned and my face turned a paler shade of white. It was her. Blue Blonde. Oh no, what does she think she’s doing? I ran and hailed a taxi. When one stopped for me, I turned but she was nowhere to be found.
My stomach did a few quick summersaults. Suddenly, she appeared again and whispered in my ear about how she loved my attitude and that she wanted to recruit me into Club Perspire. In her husky voice, she said the women there would be all over me, and I could earn at least US$8,000 per week.
That much? Tempting. But I stopped myself nodding and told her I was going to be a supermodel, not a kinky pole dancer in a gay club. Quickly, I got into the taxi, for fear she would hurt me. I could hear her saying, “CURSES TO YOU!”.
‘IT’S DISGUSTING HOW I LOVE YOU. GOD, I HATE ME. I COULD KILL YOU..’
A new text message arrived. I took my BlackBerry out and read it. Oh, I really loved my new message alert sound. It’s a first verse of the song Disgusting by Kesha.
‘Reject me one more time, and you will be cursed!’
Breathing hard, she ran. All she wanted to do was to stop time and rethink the whole incident. She ran out of her house towards the big park nearby. When she reached the park, she slowed down and walked towards a huge palm tree. She lied on the freshly cut grass and closed her eyes.
She needed to think. She decided to rethink of all her priorities. She wants him and her friends. God didn’t seem to let her have both. Should she trust her new found love? She finds that he cares more than her friends do. I mean, who cares if she’s in trouble? He does. Her friends has too many other things to worry about.. Okay, one point for boyfriend.Who sees her more often? Oh my, he does. Almost everyday! She gets all the attention she wants. But her friends.. There isn’t just A friend. She has so many friends in school, yet none of them would pay full attention to her.. Another point for boyfriend. But friends know her longer than he does. They know her better. One point for friends. But she could do a lot more with him than her friends. She could learn to do ballroom dancing with him! One point for boyfriend.
She wanted to scream. How could she be so thoughtless! She shouldn’t have pushed him away.. He was too precious yet she almost broke his fragile heart. Her face felt hot and she started to cry. She missed him so badly, she felt cold without him. Especially on her birthday, she felt like committing suicide. Finally, she gathered her courage to call him.
‘Yeah..?’he said, in a monotonous voice.
Baby, um.. Listen.. I’m sorry.’
‘I’m really sorry, I shouldn’t have hurt your feelings.. Can I make it up to you?’
‘I’ll buy you ice cream. We’ll talk about it. Let’s make things right. I miss you..’
‘Baskin Robbins in half an hour?’
‘Okay, babe. See you there.’
WOOT!She succeeded her first step. Now for her second step, to make it up to him. 20 minutes later, she arrived at Baskin Robbins to see him sitting there waiting. She quickly bought 2 scoops of mint ice cream and sat next to him on the comfy couch, offering him some mint ice cream. He was dressed in a black sweater with bermuda pants, just chilling. Just seeing his gorgeous face, she felt happier.
‘Sweetheart, I’m sorry. I know I should be more matured. I can’t believed I treated you like that.’
‘So are your friends more important than me?’
‘No. You are. I love you.’
‘I love you too. Promise there won’t be a next time?’
‘Me and you against the world, baby. Remember that.’
She did it, she made things right again. They both smiled at each other and went all corny. They hugged and kissed and finished their favourite ice cream together. They had such a lovely time. Before they went their separate ways, he pulled her against the wall and gave her the most passionate kiss. She never felt so energetic and loved before. They were iseparable. Nobody could break the bond between them. Nobody.
Year end came, and they were to go for his prom. Dressed in a while chiffon tube dress, she looked sweet. He, on the other hand, wore a double breasted suit with shades. Shades. Who wears shades to an indoor event? He was indeed weird. But she cared more about how handsome he looked. She was already imagining herself walking down the aisle and marrying the most beautiful man in the world. He was perfect. Back to reality, the prom was a blast for them. They had lovely dinner and danced together. They didn’t bother socializing and just enjoyed the company of each other. They were the ultimate lovebirds in prom.
But it wasn’t a real happy ending for them both. He was about to go on a long holiday with his family straight after prom. They were fine by it at first. They promised to keep in contact and kept sending emails to update each other. By day 3, they couldn’t take it.
He missed her too much. She missed him too much. They end up fighting. They fought worse than a cat and dog. He was too afraid that she’d cheat on him. As she was so afraid he’d forget her after he comes home. The fight they had was never ending. It wasn’t that they don’t trust each other, they were constantly worried about each other. She wants to see him so badly. Worse of all, she was still working at a clothes store and was being harrassed by her co worker. She was so stressed out, she needed him so badly. She couldn’t stop wondering what he thinks when he’s on his ‘lovely’ holiday.
Day 7 came, she was hoping they would stop fighting and look forward to see him. 3 more days, and he’s home. Day by day, she continued to work hard at the clothes shop. She made so much sales, even customers ask for her during her off days. Of course it didn’t mean she doesn’t care about her beloved boyfriend. She was confident that he loves her and would still be by her side. She couldn’t wait for New Year’s Eve. Her first date at night, with him alone.
This chapter seemed quite..not properly placed. Or maybe it’s just me? Anyway, thanks for the support people! Spread my blog to your friends! (;
On his birthday, they were over at her house, snuggling and watching movie after movie. Then he asked. He asked THE question..
Halfway through a movie, he pressed the pause button and went closer to her.
‘Oh no.. Sex? Please don’t let it be sex.. Don’t ask me for sex..’, she closed her eyes tight and prayed under her breath.
Oh god, how she loved his British accent. She slowly opened her eyes and looked at his gorgeous honey brown eyes.
‘You have been my hope and my maturity. All i want in this world is you and nothing more. Life to me has no meaning whatsoever if you are not there with me. Life has no meaning to me when i call your name and you’re not there. Babe, I would want you to answer me with all your heart whether you love me. Because i love you and i want you to be my girlfriend.’
He said it with a gentle touch with no rush between sentences. Should she trust him? His sincere soul longs for her love. His empty heart longs for her to take place. She thought hard. She didn’t want to be disappointed again. She wants a lifelong partner. She would be broken hearted to know she was just a fling. But this could be the Ideal One. He was the only guy closest to her ideal man. A sexy man who knows his future. A man who shows her his inner child as well as his maturity. A man who shares his thoughts and philosophies with her and constantly talk to her with interest. A fairly muscular man who is protective yet cares for her feelings. A man who don’t only spoil her but to make her a better person. She was so happy with his beautiful personality. She enjoyed every moment together with him.Thinking back of all the bittersweet memories…
She smiled at him.
He smiled back.
It was that. That simple. Just looking at his sincere smile, she made her decision. She said yes. He was so happy! He jumped up and hugged her. He spinned her in circles while laughing. They were finally an item. Weeks passed, they spent almost every available hour together. They cared about nobody but themselves. When things got in the way, he’d tell her, ‘ it’s you and me, against the world’. Of course, they weren’t perfect humans. They had arguments and they had their first big fight, on her birthday.
She was out with her friends and invited him to come as well. But when he arrived, she started acting weird. She didn’t know what to do. She didn’t know whether to talk to him or her friends. In the end, she pushed him aside and talked to her friends. He felt it but he asked to leave and just went off without a proper reason. He left her to have fun with her friends. She didn’t care and had her fun with her friends. Back home, she had a talk with him. He sounded pretty angry and hurt.
‘Why were you acting so childish and all..? Do you always do this when you’re with your friends?? Are you trying to impress them? Baby, it’s me and you against the world, why on earth do you want to impress them? They don’t care about you! They won’t appreciate you, but will use you.’
Yes they do! Of course, she dare not say that. She didn’t know much about her friends to be honest. She didn’t know if they really cared. She knew her friends use her. Well, indirectly. But she thought it would impress them. Unfortunately, it didn’t. And it won’t. She didn’t say a word. She didn’t like to argue back. But she felt it wasn’t fair for her.
‘I AM RIGHT!’
‘Okay, you ARE right. I was just.. having some fun. I didn’t know you would be upset.’ Tears rolled down her cheeks. She never heard him scream at her before. She wondered why.
‘Hun, why are you so.. angry?’
‘Because I care. Other people won’t do that. I’m different. I’m Mr Awesome and Mr Awesome loves you.’
‘I love you too,’ she said while giggling.
There was a few seconds of silence before he spoke again.
‘Are your friends more important than me?’
There is was. The second question that made her world stop for a minute. A long minute that was almost equivalent to eternity. 2 years ago, she learnt that she had to value friends more than her boyfriends. She was so dependent on her ex-boyfriend. She was stuck to him like glue. But he has his friends. Of course,it seemed to him that friends came before her so they broke up. Her friends still ignored her and declared she ditched them for a boy. She was devastated. Now, this question.. It was familiar.
‘Is he more important than your friends??’ yelled one of her friends.
‘What, you don’t need to care about us anymore?’ said another.
Now what should she say to her love? What is right and what is wrong? Are boyfriends more important that friends? Is this the end of her so-called lifelong relationship?
