What’s going on? How do they get to know each other? I wondered.
They still had their eyes locked into each other’s faces, surprise clearly written on them.
“Do you…..know each other?” Mum asked, causing a separation between their eyes.
But before dad could speak up, the other woman did.
“No, we don’t. Come on, Alicia. Let’s go” she said sternly, gripped the clumsy lady’s hand and scurried off.
Mum turned and looked at dad who wasn’t saying a word.
“Honey, who’s she?” She asked, but he still didn’t say a word and angrily, she started walking away to the car.
Dad got himself back and we both started walking to join mom.
I grumbled in disappointment as we walked to where the car was parked.
I didn’t even get to buy what I needed all because of that woman and her good for nothing daughter.
Why did they have to show up now?
“Mom? My shopping!” I whined and tung on her arm.
“Really? Next time.” Mom said.
We got to the car and we slide in.
The drive home was so quiet and it was uncomfortable.
None of my parents said anything but throw glares at each other; especially mom.
Who the hell is that woman to dad, huh?
As mom and I walked to the bus stop, she looked lost in thought.
She hasn’t spoken a word since we left the Mall after bumping into that rude brat’s parents especially her father.
I tried starting a conversation with her but she ignored me.
I sighed softly and continued to walk beside her. Her smile had faded and she held no expression whatsover.
She just look lost and in deep thoughts.
We both got home. While I went to the kitchen, mom went to her room.
Actually, today was fun with mom. She took me to an eatery and I ate to my satisfaction.
And my shopping bags were four because I had bought lots of things I’ve been dying to buy.
I bought some beautiful clothes and shoes.
Mom made me choose whatever I wanted and I was speechless because I didn’t know mom had such amount of money.
I happily choose whatever I wanted while mom just picked few things.
We went to the grocery side and we both bought food items.
We bought frozen foods, sea foods, cereals and breakfast food, canned food, pasta and condiments.
Our bags were filled and it was heavy.
But I was really happy that we got to go shopping and buy lots of things.
I don’t even know the last time we did such.
I prepared dinner and serve mom hers in her room.
I kept Grandma’s in the kitchen because she returned not quite long and she was having her bath.
After eating dinner and taking my bath, I wore my pyjamas and climbed onto the bed.
I tried falling asleep but sleep wouldn’t come.
I kept seeing Xavier’s cute and smiling face.
I finally gave up sleeping and got down from my bed.
I turned on the light and went to my old cabinet where I keep my drawing materials.
I actually love drawing and I draw perfectly well.
I arranged my drawing materials and took my pencil.
I’m gonna draw him.
Xavier’s mom made Xavier tutor me about what we learnt at school.
He was grumpy and refused at first but when his mom pulled his ears, he begrudgingly agreed.
We sat on a chair in his room with a table in front of us.
“Now, listen to me and listen very good” he began.
“You must do exactly as I say, okay? And don’t even think of stressing me cause I’ve got no time to waste”.
I just nodded so he doesn’t get angry.
“First of all, rewrite these sentences” he said and placed a book and pen in front of me.
On the book was written some sentences, but the problem was, I didn’t know how to me use of a pen.
Back there in Marazona, we wrote with sticks, touched in colors.
I held it in a funny way and placed it on the book, trying to copy what the boy’d asked.
“And what do you think you’re doing?” He scoffed and I looked at him.
“Seriously? Is that how to hold a pen?”
I bit my lower lip and stared down at the table bashfully.
“Gosh” he mumbled under his breath and held my hand.
His skin was so soft.
“You hold it this way” he stated calmly, but I could see he was forcing himself to be calm.
“Your index finger should be here……and this, here”
He placed the fingers the way he wanted and asked me to continue.
“T….Thanks” I told him and tried focusing on the paper.
It so wasn’t easy writing on it, but I tried.
“Holy Crap!” He exclaimed when I was done with one sentence.
“I can’t believe you used ten f**king lines in writing just one sentence!!”
What are lines? I pondered and looked at the book.
Actually, I saw some lines across it. But….did they really matter?
He took the book and stared at it. Then sighed.
“I guess we need to start with handwriting” he mumbled and brought out another book from the bag.
Alicia’s pov: I yawned lightly and sat on top of my bed.
I stretched out my body and got down from the bed.
I pulled off my clothes and tied my towel around my body.
I got into the bathroom and had a cool shower.
I smiled enthusiastically as I waited patiently for Xavier’s car to drive into the school compound.
And just as I thought, his car drove into the school compound.
I walked towards his car, but my joy seized when he came out with two ladies – urgh!!
The spoilt brat from yesterday and the other lady who’d lost her necklace.
Why’re they together, huh?
I quickly diverted to another direction cause I didn’t want to see them.
But how do I give the drawing to him? I really wanted him to notice me!
