I woke up and I checked the time.
“Thank God” I said standing up from my bed and rushing downstairs. I usually left a note for my mum just for her to know I’m back for school and where I went to.
Hey mum, I’m off to work
See you when I get back
I shut the door right behind me and went off for work. I got to work and sited Steve cleaning the tables from the windows. I opened the glass door and went in.
“Surprise, surprise, look who we have here” Steve said.
“Grow up Steve” I replied.
“Really, you’re early, why?” He asked with a brow raised.
“Because I wanted to see your face?” I said mockingly.
“Right…you missed me” Steve said giving me a smirk.
“Shut up please” I hissed rolling my eyes as I walked to the changing room. I changed into my uniform and walked out.
“You’re early” Mrs Collins said.
“Yes ma’am” I replied.
“How are you feeling?” She asked
(Woah, what has gotten into her today, like I mean she never asks if I’m okay or not).
“Yes ma’am” I replied.
“Get to work” she said.
I rolled my eyes and went over to the counter.
“Hey Stacy, there’s a customer there, go take his order” Mary said.
“Sure” I replied. I walked close to that customer in black. Gosh he had a cute haircut and I loved his scent. Wait that smell is familiar.
“Hey sir, what would you like to order?” I asked politely, he turned then faced me.
“You!” I yelled surprised.
“Hey partner” James said also surprised.
“You work here?” He asked. I could actually see him scan me.
“Err…yea..what are you doing here?” I asked him.
“Erm…to eat, what else would I be doing here?” He replied with question.
“Whatever” I hissed.
I took his order and gave it to Mary. His order was made within a few minutes and I took his plate to him.
“Here you go sir.” I said politely.
“Hey, we’re mates, please drop the formal words and just call me James” he said smiling.
“Right I’m at work so I’ve gotta use it”
I replied then I walked away. I went towards the counter.
“Gosh he’s too cute” Mary said
“I know right” Edna followed up.
“You guys com’on” I said rolling my eyes as I watched him eat.
(he ate like a pig, doesn’t he knows that he’s outside not at home, he’s just like Becky).
He finished eating and I went over to his table to clear his plates.
“Thanks, I enjoyed it” he said giving me a smirk.
“Sure” I replied.
I finished work so quick, and headed home immediately.
“See y’all tomorrow” I said as I waved Steve, Mary, Edna and Michael goodbye.
“Bye Mrs Collins” I said politely, she didn’t reply but who cares anyways.
I walked out the door and surprisingly someone appeared in my front.
“BOO!!” James shouted.
“Hey!?” I screamed surprised.
“What’s your problem, you’re going to give someone an heart attack” I said angrily.
“Sorry ma’am” he replied mockingly.
“Why are you still here?” I asked.
“Err…I wanted to escort you home” he said like he knew where I live.
“Do you know where I live?” I asked.
“Nop…that’s why I waited so I could know where you lived” he answered.
“See..you just go home, your momma would be worried” I said not caring.
“Uh..lady..this is my street, I can go home anytime I want.” He said making me look like a fool.
“So where do you stay?” He asked.
“Somewhere you don’t need to know” I replied bluntly.
(Why would I tell him were I lived, I mean I wouldn’t like for him to visit me).
As we walked, I was so annoyed, he just didn’t want to leave me alone.
“Okay what’s your name then?” He asked.
“Beyonce” I answered.
“Tch..you look nothing like her” he hissed.
“Okay then” I said rolling my eyes.
We got in front of my house, but I didn’t want James to know where I lived so I decided to walk further.
“Stacy!” I heard a call from my house.
(Oh shit,not now mum not now)
I turned to see my mum waving at me and I waved back.
“Oh, so that’s your mom, definitely that should be where you lived” James said giving me a smirk.
I went ahead to my door to meet my mum and James followed right behind me.
“Go home now” I said to him.
“Good evening ma’am” James said to my mum giving her a huge grin.
“How’re you son?” She replied returning the grin with a smile.
“I’m doing okay and you?” He asked smiling..
“I’m okay too….you’re such a well mannered boy, what’s your name?” My mum asked.
“I’m James ma’am, James Pena” James replied.
“That’s a nice name James. Well I’m Hannah Vega, Stacy’s mum” she replied smiling.
I rolled my ears.
“Mum….James gotta leave now” I said.
“Erm..nop… I still have thirty minutes to spend outside” he said. He looked at me and gave me a smirk.
“Then let’s all go in” my mum said.
Right, that’s what my mum would totally like, I mean meeting new boys as my friend. She’s been dying to find out if I had any guy friend. But still no I don’t have because I totally dislike James.
We got inside my house, my mum directed him to the sitting room.
“Woah, this couch is so comfortable” he said as he sat on my favorite couch.
“Hey!, don’t sit there” I yelled.
“Why?” He asked.
“Because you just can’t sit there” I hissed.
(He just can’t sit there, my grandad made that couch for me, I mean I don’t even let Becky sit there, why now you James)
“Well I’ve already sat there, I’m sorry I can’t stand up” he replied with a smirk.
“let him sit there just for today..eh..be kind okay” my mum said as she came out of the kitchen with bowl of fried chicken and chips.
“Right…and mum he just ate” I said as I rolled my eyes.
“Err….no… I’m starving in fact”James said.
“What?!….James I just served you a burger not quite long” I replied shocked.
“That wasn’t enough” he replied almost immediately.
“Okay you guys that’s enough… There’s food for everyone” my mum said as she dropped the plate in the center of the table.
“So James how did you know my daughter?” My mum asked.
“Uh…we attend the same school, we sit next to each other in sociology class and we’re project partners plus we live in the same street” he answered smiling.
“Right” I hissed.
“That’s nice…same project partners that means we would be seeing you often?” She asked.
“No!” I yelled.
“Yes” James said giving me a smirk.
My mum busted into laughter and James joined in. I rolled my eyes and went upstairs. I needed to complete my assignment before I could sleep. I could hear my mum and James laughing from downstairs while they talked about random things and it annoyed me. I went downstairs to see what was going wrong.
“Okay ma’am” James said as he stood up
“Thanks so much for the accommodation” he added.
“No problem…..you’re always welcomed here” she said.
“About time you had left” I said rolling my eyes.
“Right….I’m about to leave….thanks though” he replied giving me that stupid smirk.
“That doesn’t fit you” I hissed.
“Right” he smiled showing off his dimples.
He left for the door and I followed right behind him.
“Bye” he turned to wave.
“Go well” I rolled my eyes and shut the door.
I turned to see my mum standing in front of me with her hands folded.
“Why’d you treat him that way” she asked.
“I don’t like him” I replied bluntly
“But he’s a good boy” she said as she sided James.
“Still I don’t like him” I replied.
“Why?” My Mum asked again.
“I don’t know….maybe because he’s too pompous and he thinks high of himself” I replied giving this *I don’t really care* look.
“That’s a stupid excuse…well your dinner is on the dinning” she said as she made her way up the stairs into her room.
“Right….thanks” I hissed.
I finished eating, washed my plate and went upstairs. I felt dizzy as I climbed up the stairs. I went into my mum’s room to tell her goodnight.
“Mum….goodnight” I said as I entered her room. She turned to me and walked up to me.
“Why are you bleeding from your nose?” She asked.
“Are you okay?” She added.
“I’m fine…I’m just feeling a little bit dizzy” i answered.
“Should we see the doctor tomorrow, remember this ain’t the first time something like this is happening to you” she said.
“Yea mum and that was last year mum, and that doctor said maybe it was stress” i said rolling my eyes.
“Okay….just go have some rest” she said.
“Okay mum…goodnight” I said as I walked out of her room.
“Goodnight dear..I love you” she said as she laid on her bed.
“Love you too” I replied shutting the door right behind me.
I got to my room, had my shower and laid on my bed starring at the ceiling.
“Should I go see the doctor tomorrow?” I asked myself.
“Maybe I should go right after school” I replied myself.
“Should I tell mum?” I asked again.
“Nah..I wouldn’t want to disturb her” I answered.
I said my night prayers and feel asleep almost immediately.
