I excused myself from the party and reached for my phone so I could call Chelsea. I just wanted to be sure she was fine.
I walked to a more quiet place before placing the call and after a few beeps, she picked up.
“Hello?” She called on the phone, like she didn’t know i was the one calling or something.
“Chelsea?” I also called.
“Hey; what’s up?”
“I’m….I’m fine” she replied, sounding a little cold.
“Um…where are you?” I asked.
“Oh! Why didn’t you come for Mitchell’s party?”
There was a brief silence.
“I just….I’m…I’m tired and having a little head ache”.
“Oh! Is it that serious?”
“No; no. Not really. I’ll be fine, please. Don’t worry about it”.
“Okay then. You know….its so unlike you to miss parties. So,I was just wondering if there was a problem”.
“No, not at all. I’m fine. Um….don’t worry about it. I’ll come over in the morning so we could leave for school together. What do you think?”
“Hmmm. That’d be great. You know I don’t have a problem with that. Just take care of yourself, okay?”
“Of course. Enjoy the party. Bye Xavier”.
And I ended the call with a smile.
Hmm. At least, my conscience can be clear a bit.
Now….its time to screw some bi*ches. Mitchell was already waiting for me in her room.
I fixed the phone into my pocket and was about walking away when a call came in and I brought it out to see it was mum.
“Hello?” I said on the phone as soon as I picked the call.
“Xavier. Where are you?” She asked immediately, not replying to my greeting.
“I’m…at the party. I told you about it, right?” I replied.
“Yes. Hold on….is Delaney with you?” She asked and I flinched.
“Who’s Delaney? Wait….the alien?” I scoffed.
“Yes. You know her,, Xavier. Is she there with you?” She asked.
“And why the heck would she be with me? Of course, she isn’t, mum. Gosh!”
“Huh?? She isn’t there with you?? Then where’s she? I can’t find her at home, Xavier. None of the maids had seen either. Where’s she?”
For a moment, I was stunned.
“Woahh! Well….I guess she’s probably returned to her alien world” I said with an eye roll.
“This isn’t a joke, Xavier. She’s new around here. How’re we sure she’s safe? What could’ve happened to her?”
“Well….I’ve got no idea, mum. Maybe…”
“Are you sure she didn’t go out with you?”
“Hell no. Rio was the only person that left the house with me. Listen, don’t worry about it,mum. Besides, you don’t even know her from Adam, right? You just get to meet her for the first ball today. So, its possible she’s ran off already. Just let it be,okay?”
She sighed despondently.
“I just….I just feel uncomfortable, Xavier. Why would she just leave the house for no reason?” She asked but I didn’t say a word.
I don’t get why’s she so worried over a stranger.
“I..I need to look for her’ she finally said and ended the call.
I sighed and fixed my phone into my pocket, going to meet my a*s
“Alicia! Alicia!!” Mum yelled my name as I clumped down the ugly creaky steps.
“What is it, mum? Why’re you screaming my name like it’s for sale?” I said with an eye roll as I finally met her in the sitting room.
Grandma was there as well, doing what she knew how to do best with her needle and thread.
“Have you gone nuts?” Mum snapped.
“Anyway, what happened to the money in my bag? I can’t find it anymore” she and I itched my hair.
“I don’t get. Why’re you asking me, huh? Its not like I’m a bag security or something….”
“Will you shut that trap of yours and answer my question?? What happened to the money??? It was here some hours ago. But as soon as you came home, its gone. What happened to it??” She half yelled and I placed my hand at akimbo.
“Well….I have no idea. Although, I was in need of some cash and I remember asking you for it, but you bluntly said you weren’t having anything on you. So….”
Before I could finish up my statement, she picked up and shoe and threw it at me.
Luckily, I missed and started towards the door.
“Alicia!! Alicia!! I’m gonna cut off your ears!” She yelled as she ran after me, but I didn’t let her get me.
I ran as fast as I could, out of the house, out of the compound and out to to street and that was when she stopped chasing me.
Holy Mary!! My chest!!
I placed my palm on my chest and panted heavily as I stood at a dark corner, when I was sure she wasn’t after me.
What a mother. Gosh!!
If I didn’t act that way, I’d have been looking like a lunatic.
Well, what do I expect? Having such a lazy mother who acts like she’s 19?
I itched my head and took in deep breaths. I couldn’t recall the last time I’d ran this much.
I was about walking away when I saw something that gripped my attention from the floor.
I arched my brows and picked it up.
It was a pretty necklace….yeah..looked like a necklace.
And it looked really…..special and different.
I apologize for the late posts, guys. Been handling a lot of things lately.
