After lunch, the girls and I hurried back to the workshop building for the next training session.
The instructor walked in few minutes after I got in. Sighing, I groggily dragged myself towards the front to carry out the row call.
The instructor stammered on with his heavy Italian accent about simple hand tools and I scoffed.
'Why are we doing this again? ' I whispered to Allen.
'Well, it's always good to start from the basics', Allen shrugged.
To keep myself from falling over out of drowsiness caused by boredom, I started sketching on Allen's hands which was on the workbench, adding a string of tattoos on them. I chuckled when I was done and the instructor cleared his throat.
'Young lady, do you mind enlightening us on the
It's been over a week since I started the summer training and ever since, Tee has been my alarm clock.'Arise and shine!' Tee's familiar voice rang in my ears. His morning breath fanned my face as my drowsy eyelids fluttered open, My sight was greeted with Tee's signature grin as he hovered over me. I shoved him to the side which sent him rolling down to the floor.'Ouuuu!' He groaned, reeling in pain as he landed with his back on the floor.'Take that, you blasted sleep ruiner! ' I seethed, stomping into the bathroom.'Good morning to you too.' Tee mumbled behind me as he limped out of my room and shut the door behind him with a slam.I eased myself and quickly showered, mentally preparing for that day.We had building practice, which basically meant we'll be doing the concrete and block making stuffs. The thought alone was tiring as I half-dragged myself out of the shower into my
'Honey you are a rockUpon which I standAnd I come here to talkI hope you understandThat green eyesYeah the spotlight, shines upon youAnd how could anybody deny youI came here with a loadAnd it feels so much lighterNow I met youAnd honey you should knowThat I could never go on without youGreen eyes-'Coldplay's green eyes blared through my headset as I trudged on to school. The morning sun shone through bright clouds, lighting up the azure sky, a nice change from the obsidian sky after a rainy night. It was a perfect day... Well...not until a certain white convertible out of no where, sped past me, splashing murky water on me.'HEY!!!' I yelled as I stomped my right foot in exasperation, causing my headset to slide down, hanging on my neck.Familiar cackles rang through the air along with Spanish expletives.
On getting to the workshop, I spotted Allen scribbling on his log book.I kept my distance, knowing he was probably still mad at me.I stuffed my hands into the pockets of my workshop coat, letting my eyes scan the workshop.Heavy machines were mounted at different sections of the workshop. Metal chips were seen scattered about and oil stains spotted the floor.I felt like I was being watched, until my eyes locked with a pair of familiar azure eyes. Allen Briggs'.I turned away quickly, the uneasy feeling still swimming in the pit of my stomach. I wasn't ready to face him yet.I still felt bad about what happened earlier today.I was lost in my thoughts until a familiar tug pulled on my lab coat.'Hey Annie!' Amber chirped.'Hey Amber' I flashed her a weak smile.'You okay?' She asked, squinting her eyes in scrutiny, causing her glasses to slip down her nose a little.
Should I wear this yellow sundress with brown flower patterns or this brown sundress with yellow floral patterns?' Dara asked, holding up two dresses in front of me over face time. I rolled my eyes as she looked away then switched to faux thought as she glowered at me with her dark orbs.'Yellow would look amazing on you, you know. Sort of compliments your dark skin tone.' I finally said, after few minutes of genuine contemplation.'But brown sort of brings out my brown eyes.' Dara chipped in, staring admiringly at her eyes through a hand mirror.'Dara, for the umpteenth time. Your eyes are rich black.' I rolled my eyes again.'Of course not!' She whined, slumping on her bed. ' They're just a reeeeally dark shade of brown. Like dark chocolate.' She stared off dreamily.Okay, with Dara, you can never argue to an end, except you want to argue for eternity.'Alright Dara. I agree with
I felt my cheeks heat up as he walked past me as if he didn't just cause mayhem, probably world war 3 inside me as my insides melted into purée.I noticed a smirk on his face as he walked past me towards the workshop building. The nerve of him!Snapping out of his winknopism, which I am fully aware is not a real word, I scurried to the lecture theatre. As I entered.I spotted Allen holding a bundle of cardboards on one hand and piles of log books on the other.I walked up to him, taking the log books from his hands.'Hi.' I muttered as I collected the log books'Good morning princess. Ah, thank you! What would I do without you?!' He gushed, his dimples on display as a toothy smile splayed on his lips.I chuckled at his antics and chimed in. 'You'd be lost in the dark, dark corners, searching for hope.'Allen laughed softly as I joined him to collect the assignments from the g
Uh, Annie? Who's him?' Asked Dara, her face scrunched up in scrutiny.'I'll be back!' I sprung up from my seat and ran after Allen, ignoring Dara's voice as she called out to me to wait. I spotted him as he finished buying lunch. Panting, I stopped in front of the lunch line, my palms resting on my knees as I steadied my breath. I got a bottle of water and scurried after Allen as he sat alone at his table.'Are you jealous?' My hands slammed on the table, facing him with his tray of food trapped in between. I leaned in, staring deep into his sky blue eyes, daring him to say the truth.Rolling his eyes, he replied. 'What do you mean, Annie?'Annie? No princess?I blinked back the look of disappointment on my face and sat in front of him.'You know what I mean.' I fixed him with an annoyed look.'Pft... Why would I be?' He scoffed, facing his food like it fascinated him mu
What if I'm all a game to him, to make me fall for him which evidently gives him the power to do whatever he wants with me? I cringed inwardly at the though of that and increased my pace as my apartment building surfaced.Well. Whatever. I'm too exhausted to think about that now.Getting home, I had a quick shower, had lunch then settled in on my assignment.As I flipped through the pages of the textbook, some pieces of paper secured between two pages caught my attention.I gasped as I glanced through it, remembering Amber's excited self as she reminded me of it.'Oh. I'd appreciate some adventure.' I chuckled as I headed towards my wardrobe to get ready.Peeling my eyes away from the flyer, I glanced at the time and gasped: 5:45pm!With the speed of light, I changed my outfit and put on a black knee level straight dress with a pair of sandals. I brushed my hair, brushing the bangs to th
'Welcome.' He said. His voice came out deep and velvety, making me want to purr.I mirrored his expression, a big smile plastered on my face as my eyes remained locked on his gaze.Soon his gaze lifted from me to Amber who scooted closer to him as they talked in hushed tones.I watched him as he spoke.He had an aura which fascinated me.He looked like he was in his late twenties.My overt gawking was soon interrupted as Amber turned towards me and smiled, stepping closer to me.'It's a pleasure to meet you Annie.' Sir Quentin said, offering me a hand shake. I took his hands which was both firm and warm to the touch.It was strangely soothing as his large hand wrapped around my slim hand. He then looked at Amber and they seemed to be communicating. Smiling at me one last time, he turned away from us, back to the actors.As Amber dragged me back towards the exit, I couldn't help but ask.
