I poured a little vegetable oil into the frying pan, and that's when I felt Ryan move close beside me.“What's wrong?” He asked while I bent slightly and lowered the heat that would come out from the hot plate.“Nothing serious,” I replied and stood erect then gazed at Ryan who was staring curiously at me.“Tell me about it,” He insisted, and I sighed, dragging my eyes away from him, and took the bowl of mixed eggs and poured it into the frying pan.“I asked her if she still loves my dad,” I muttered, watching the egg fry as it swelled.“And what did she say?” Ryan questioned me as I grabbed the frying spoon and used it to flip over the egg.“Nothing,” I shrugged and looked at Ryan, who gave me an understanding nod and smiled.“It's fine, Ley,” Ryan beamed and pats my back gently and I gave him a warm smile.Ryan moved away from me and walked over to the fridge while I switched off the hot plate.My egg was ready and waiting to be devoured by me, but I still had cooked potatoes in the
“Hello, dad,” I chirped immediately after I picked up my dad's call.“Hey Princess, how have you been?” Dad's deep voice sounded through the phone.I was in the kitchen about to make dinner for myself, I placed my phone between my ear and shoulder blade, so, I could be able to break the egg into the pink bowl on the counter.“I'm fine, Dad, what about you?” I questioned putting the eggshell into each other and placing them on the counter.“Good, are you busy?” He asked as I walked to the cupboard, now holding my phone in my right hand.“Uhm! Not really, just preparing what I'm going to eat tonight,” I told him.“That's good,”“We can still talk, it's not disturbing our conversation,” I said, opening the cupboard to take a spoon to mix the egg.“Okay, I have some news for you,” My dad informed me and I turned around backed to the counter, and placed my left arm on my stomach.“Yes?” I said eagerly, hoping it was a piece of good news.“I applied for a job, at a big company in Bradford,
I was walking to my locker, a few minutes later when they rang the bell for break, I was humming to 'Devil doesn't bargain' by Alec Benjamin, the song is everything, and listening with my black AirPods made it cooler to vibe with when I suddenly bumped into someone.“Hey!” I stepped back immediately and raised my gaze to see who it was, then I realized it was Ryan standing in front of me.The idiot purposely came my way.He gave me a wide grin, and I rolled my eyes at him and removed the AirPods from my ear and put them inside the pocket of my blazer before I noticed what was in his hand.It was a pack of marshmallows…“How are you doing?” He asked and threw a pink marshmallow into his mouth and my gaze followed the way he ate the soft delicacies, I swallowed hard and blinked my eyes severally at him.“Fine,” I muttered dryly, instantly craving for some marshmallow too, and lowered my gaze to his hands again.“You want?” He asked tauntingly, offering me the packed marshmallow, and I n
All set for school, I checked myself in the mirror looking at how smart I looked in my school uniform, I've always liked the school uniform since the first day I stepped into Ryan's school.Knock! Knock!!“I'm coming,” I said loudly, smearing the pink lipstick on my lips and rubbing my lips together, then flipped my straight chocolate hair to the back.Ready…I hurried to my bed where I dropped my school bag, I put the lipstick in my bag and zipped it up, then slung it over my right shoulder and made my way to the door.I turn the doorknob and open the door, and I was welcomed with the fresh scent from Ryan.“Good morning,” I greeted him, inhaling sharply as his hazel eyes glowed and shine brightly.“Good morning, Ley,” He smiled, and I noticed he was wearing his trailblazer today.“What's with the blazer?” I teased him, and he quirked his brows at me.“Just felt like wearing it,” He smirked, and I arched an eyebrow at him.“Mm,” “Are you ready for school?” He asked, staring deeply i
I lay on my bed, crying silently to myself as I stared at the ceiling in my room while listening to one of Ali Gatie's songs playing on my Bluetooth speaker, and kept blaming myself for why I accepted to be in a relationship with the jerk in the first place.I was pretty certain, he never had pure intentions for me in the start.Likewise, I didn't want to think much about it because that makes us two now, I guess we were both jerks because I've cheated on him too, and breaking up the relationship was just the perfect way.My phone kept on ringing, signifying incoming calls and various text messages from Aiden.My thoughts were rowdy, and I was thinking of numerous things, my life entirely… everything was simply a mess, and I'm sick of it.My lovely family crashed due to mum's indecision and my love life was totally out of place, especially when I knew deep down I still had feelings for my stepbrother.I blinked my eyes severally, I wanted to cry again, but my tears were dried out, an
Seriously?What am I doing here?I swallowed the heavy lumps in my throat, blinking my eyes severally, hoping all this wasn't true.I just caught my good-for-nothing boyfriend cheating, and he has the nerve to ask me what I was doing here.“What am I doing here?” I asked myself the same question he asked and chuckled to myself, shaking my head and biting my lower lips… Is this a joke or what?The blonde girl stood up from the bed, and her nakedness was free for viewing, my eyes darted to where she was going then she stopped suddenly and bend slightly to pick the litter of clothes crumpled on the floor which seems to be her clothes and just went into Aiden's bathroom without a word then I snapped my gaze back to Aiden who was struggling to put on his boxers.Without saying anything, I turned around and began making my way to the living room.“Hailey!” My ears cringed as he called my name, but I didn't stop, I needed to get out of here as fast as possible.“Hailey, please wait!” Aiden c
I grabbed a bouquet of red and white rose flowers and also decided to get Aiden's favorite cookies before I started walking towards the counter and gave the items I bought to the sales girl.“Everything is $45,” The sales girl told me and I nodded, bringing out a $50 note from my small purse and gave the money to the sales girl, and she helped me pack the flowers and cookies.I wanted to give Aiden a surprise and find out what he has been up to again, maybe he was busy this time or not, he didn't even text or call me for some days now, if I say I wasn't annoyed that would be a lie not like I cared so much about it but something was off between us.I thanked the sales girl and walked out of the mall. Standing by the roadside, I waited for a cab I could wave at and take me to Aiden's apartment.Suddenly, a cab was coming my way but when I was about to flag it down, there were passengers in the back seat.I sighed and moved back slightly, then I saw another cab and stretched my hand wavi
The weekends rolled off as fast as I could imagine, and I decided not to go to school, I had already taken my bath but just lay still on my bed, I glanced at the wall clock and saw that it was past seven in the morning.I grabbed my phone from the chest close to my bed and used my duvet to cover my body, I tossed onto my side, and switch on my phone. I clicked on the W******p icon to check for any new messages from Aiden, but it was nil.'What is up with him?' I asked myself, he wasn't even worried about me or wanted to know how I was doing.'I'm going to give him a surprise visit, today,' I smiled thinly to myself, I began manipulating my phone checking for the latest movies that were available on the internet.One of the reasons I didn't want to go to school was I wanted to avoid whatever gossip my classmates and some other students will be spreading around about what happened at Shirley's pool party, and again I'm just feeling too lazy to go to school and even stand up from my bed.
