Getting to school the next day, I keep thinking about last night and the decision I made. I don't know if I made the right decision or not, all I know is I'm gonna keep enjoying my life to the fullest.
There goes the signal for the commencement of classes. I have the feeling that this is going to be a long day, so I brace myself for the up coming boredom.
During break, I meet up with my friends for lunch at our usual spot.
"hey guys, what's up"
"Cole my man" Evan greets.
"hey bro" Carl greets briefly before focusing on his lunch. Jason on the other hand just nods his head as a sign of his acknowledging my presence.
Taking my seat beside Carl
"so what are you guys up to"
"nothing much, just a little running around that's all" Jason speaks, a little too quickly. Which was weird.
"whoa, that sounds fun... where? "
"why do you care"
"Jason!" Evan cautions.
"what? I'm just stating the obvious "
"well the obvious is certainly a bitch!" Evan says almost yelling at the top of his voice.
"Jason look, if you have some kind of problem with me just say it"
In response, Jason bumps his fist on the table before standing to leave.
"Jason!" "Jason!" "Jason!" Evan calls out to him.
"just leave him for now, he'll come around" Carl tries to defend Jason.
We continue eating in silence since the atmosphere is no longer conducive. After eating my lunch, I stood to take my leave but I was held back by Evan.
"where the fuck are you going? "
"I don't know...to get fresh air maybe"
"look, don't be too upset by Jason. Okay? He's just being a total ass"
"yeah, I know. I'm not upset though, Just wish I knew what's got him so worked up"
"I know for sure that I don't...do you Carl? "
"Uh... um... no, of course I don't. I mean Jason doesn't tell me stuffs"
"Hmm, okay. I guess I'll go ahead then, see you later guys"
I leave the spot to go get some fresh air.
I don't know why Jason suddenly decided to become an ass, but I do know that Carl knows something about it and he's refusing to tell. I could tell by the way he was fidgeting when he answered Evan.
I won't bring it up though... for now, but I've got to know why. I can't just let this slide cuz this involves ME. I don't chicken out when it comes to ironing out the misunderstanding between me and my friends. I'm not gonna let someone harbor a grudge against me for what I know nothing about.
After classes are done, I make my way to Jason's class to wait for him so that we could have a heart to heart talk. I need to get answers from this asshole. I walk up to him as I saw him leaving his classroom.
"Jason, we need to talk "
"there's nothing to talk about "
"actually there is "
He stops and faces me with a death glare.
"look here Cole, there's really nothing to talk about "
"what the hell is your problem man"
"you wanna know what the problem is, huh! "
"well, hell yes "
"okay, okay...how about this,you having a sensual moment with my girlfriend last night,huh?"
"the fuck Jason, I had no idea that was your girlfriend "
I didn't even know the guy had a girlfriend. Jeez, this guy is so secretive.
"oh yeah? "
"believe me Jason, I would never do that to you. And it's not like you've actually introduced a girlfriend to us"
When he doesn't stop walking, I walk faster to catch up with him. Blocking his path, I turn to face him.
"you've gotta believe me man, I would never do that to you"
Looking up to meet my gaze, he seems as though he was thinking about it."okay fine, whatever...""I'm sorry for acting up" he let's out an awkward laugh.
I just followed suit. "Dude seriously, is she really your girlfriend? "
He put a hand to cover my mouth."Just between okay?..."
"We just started going out...about a week now "
"That's cool...so are you gonna introduce her? "
"Na, I don't think so"
I wanted to pry further but I was cut short.
"about time you pussies made up" Evan says coming out of his hiding place.
Jason's face turns red instantly,
"you guys have been there all this while? " he asks nervously.
"well yeah, of course. We have to make sure you babies don't break each other's heads " Evan says smirking.
"so, you guys good? " Carl asks coming out of his hiding place.
"Yeah" we both replied.
"now that we're all good, let's go PARTY!! "
We all burst out laughing at that. That's Evan for you,there's never a dull moment with him.
Soon afterwards, we left the school premises and Evan took us to this club (don't ask me the name of the club coz I don't know😉😄). At the club we met the same guys from the Reapers. And it turns out they were celebrating in grand style to mark the kick off of their operations in town.
After getting our passes, we enter the club. The club is not like your regular club, the decor is breathtaking with disco ball lights illuminating the place. No sooner than later, we get into the groove and party like no other.
Last night's party was a bang, I had so much fun. I enjoyed myself so much that I didn't bother to come home until the early hours of this morning. I knew my parents were going to give me a handful during breakfast, so I stayed in bed and slept in. After quite a while, I heard my parents car pull up from the driveway. Taking that as my cue, I get up from my bed and head to the kitchen to have my breakfast. Today's probably about to be the best day of my life because I remember my parents telling about some business trip this weekend. I couldn't be any happier, I'll have the whole weekend to myself -not to talk of the whole house. Taking out my phone, I called my friends to ask if they could come over to hang at my house today. They all agreed and settled for 1:30pm. Finishing my breakfast, I head to the bathroom to take my bath and i
I heard someone call my name from my sleep. Opening my eyes, I see Harry trying to drag me from my sorry excuse for a bed, muttering words that weren't clear to me."Get up you big baby_else we're gonna be late for work... and trust me when I say that is not how I plan to start a new week""Okay okay, I'm up " I get up from the bed yawning. I drag myself to the bathroom to take my bath. An habit that never died even after four years. After bathing and getting ready, we head out. We decided to branch by our favourite canteen to grab some sandwich for breakfast as we were going to be very busy to eat breakfast when we get to the factory. We got to the factory with fifteen minutes to spare_and that's a bonus. We look for a quiet spot to eat our breakfast, after which we started our work for the day.&nbs
Last night was like a dream to me. Who would have thought Mr Finley was actually a nice guy. Though I believe it was all fake but I'm not going to go into that now. He actually dropped us in front of our house instead of letting us get off at the nearest junction like we told him to. Not only that, he also got us takeouts for dinner. How kind of him, right? I guess not, because sooner or later he's gonna ask for something in return. We're just gonna sit and wait for that to happen. We got to work on time again today, thanks to Harry who offered to be my alarm clock, and started our work. Harry wanted to finish up his work as soon as possible so he could go clubbing with some of his gang members. I'm surprised at how this guy manages his life. He basically goes clubbing four days a week and still gets to work on time. Anyway, I'm
We've been driving for almost two hours now and I don't know where in the world we're going. I thought about asking Mr Finley but I don't want him to think I'm a scared of him so I keep my mouth tight. Please try to get me, it's not that I'm scared he'll hurt me, it's just that I get this weird feeling from him and it's really creepy. After approximately two hours ten minutes, we arrive at this beautiful neighborhood (I don't know what it's called). We pulled at a beautiful mansion. It almost looked like a mansion. Mr Finley got our and I followed suit. When we got to the door, it opened automatically. Wow, do doors really do that these days, it's sooo cool. "It's cool right, I know " Mr Finley said with a satisfied grin plastered on his face. My only answer was a rapid nod of my head. Mr Finley laughed and o
The ride back was really awkward, I felt as though I didn't know who Harry was, which in truth, I really didn't. I felt as though he was a complete stranger. I was tempted to start asking him questions but I decided to wait until I had gotten some food in my stomach. We got to McGee's, our favourite restaurant to get something to eat. I waited in the car while Harry went inside to order some takeout for us. After a while, he came back with two plastic bags containing what he ordered, then we drove to my shed. I call it a shed because it used to be a storage room. It was used to keep grains by the former owner. When we got to my shed, he said, "You're just gonna grab a few of your things, then we move to our new crib" "Our new what?! ""Crib, it's w
The night went by pretty fast that by the time I got out of bed, Jeff, Conny, Mike and Harry had gotten ready for the day's work. "hey, good morning " I greeted Harry. "good morning sleepy head ""you're all set? ""yeah, me and the others will be heading out in a bit ""okay ""come down for breakfast will ya ""alright, I'll be down in a bit" He left me in the room to freshen up which didn't take me up to five minutes. When I was done, I went downstairs. "good morning everyone " I greeted them to which they all acknowledged. "good morning, hope you slept well? " Julian being his cheery self I guess. "yeah, I did""oh that's good " he served me my breakfast "bon appetit" "thanks ""don't men
It's been three week since I started working at Nico's illegal warehouse /laboratory. The job wasn't exactly what I thought it was. When Julian said I was to work as supervisor,this wasn't what came to my mind. My work consisted of me cross checking the packaged orders and going to with whoever delivers them to make sure that the customers get their orders. I don't exactly get why I was given this position but I heard along the lines of what Julian said that 'there's no other person Nico would rather trust to handle it here'. When I asked Julian why he couldn't do the job, he said he already had enough on his plate being Nico's second in command. I also asked why the other guys couldn't do the job and he said that they already had other branches they were heading and so their hands were full. Since I couldn't quite argue with him, I just rolled with it. I wasn'
When I got to the house, the lights were still on, that meant I was right one time. I was greeted by the sound of talking and laughter as I approached the kitchen. "hey Cole, what's up man" Conny was the first to see me as the others turned their heads to face my direction welcoming me. "welcome home cupcake " for some unreasonable reason Julian had been calling me that for the past weeks after our little cupcake picnic. It was really frustrating to get him to stop calling me that. "hey buddy, you look beat" I always trust Harry to notice little things like this. "yeah, I am""aw, poor cupcake, why don't you have a seat while I fix you a plate of burritos ""thanks Julian, I'd like that "I took my seat opposite Harry while Julian was fixing my dinner. I wanted to look at Harry's face while I was eating, I wanted to see if there was any
