Until we meet again.

Chapter twelve

The Unwanted Phone Call

Days went, weeks, months passed, James and I got closer, Becky had a real boyfriend, my mum still working her butt out, my dad still never showed up. Work was getting better each day thanks to James, doctor Henderson kept calling but I made sure my mum didn’t get to talk with him. Me, I was never getting better. I got weaker by day, and I started losing weight. I knew I was dying, but I just couldn’t do anything. My mum kept asking if I was okay and I kept telling her the same old story. James also noticed I wasn’t okay but I convinced him I was. Not until one day, I couldn’t stop doctor Henderson from talking to my mum. She totally found out everything. I never knew doctor Henderson was this smart. He used another line to call so I didn’t even have a clue it was him

“Mum!” I yelled out to my mum.
“Your phone is ringing” I shouted.
My mum raced downstairs to pick up her phone.

Mrs Vega P O V.
I picked up the phone, it was an unknown number and heard a male voice.

“Hello who’s this?” I asked.

“Sorry am I talking to Mrs Vega?” the voice asked.

“Erm..yea..who are you?” I replied surprised.

“Doctor Henderson” doctor Henderson said.

“Oh…good day sir, pardon my rudeness, how are you doing?” I asked.

“Very well and you?” He replied.

“Very well too, how’s the clinic?” I asked.

“Oh..well, we pray to God every one gets better, I mean he’s the only great healer” he replied.

“That’s right, so how may I help you sir?” I asked.

“Err…I want to have a serious discussion with you, are you alone there?” He asked.

“My daughter’s here” I said.

“Away from Stacy please” he said almost immediately.

“Okay…let me just go upstairs” I said as I made my way up the stairs.

Stacy’s P O V

Before i knew it, i saw my mum going up the stairs, it was totally unlike her. She often receives calls while I’m there.

Seconds went and then minutes. Suddenly I heard a loud noise from her room.

“mum” I jerked up as I ran up the stairs.

“mum are you okay? ” I asked as i knocked on the door.

“mum” I said again. I got no reply so I decided to go into the room. I went in and saw a broken glass vase on the floor beside my mom

“Mum!” I yelled.
“You’re gonna hurt yourself” I shouted.
“What’s wrong?” I asked, so concerned.

She slowly lifted her heads and had this look of anger as she stood up.
I sited blood dripping from her finger and got vexed.

“See you’ve already cut yourself” shouted
“I’ve always told you to be careful, you stress yourself too much, now you’ve got a cut, who’s gonna take care of it?, me….again.. You always make me worry about you, just hold on and sit okay?…. I’ll go get the first aid kit”. I said as I dashed off downstairs to go get the kit and went back up.

” it’s gonna hurt a little, but no worries I’m here ” I said as I cleaned her wounds smiling.

“You know you can’t keep hurting you hands, there’s so precious and very pretty.. So no more cuts okay?” I said as I placed a plaster on the wound.

“There….it’s all done” I assured her..

“Please tell me its not true” my mum said.

“That?” I asked confused.

“Doctor Henderson said you’re sick” she said almost immediately.

“Sick?..” I said letting out a laugh

“Do I look sick mum” I asked feeling a little bit tensed

“Don’t plat dumb with me lady” she raised her voice

“leukemia, he said he told you about it and asked you to tell me” she added as she held my hand so tight.

(Oh shit)

“Tell me he’s lying…. Please” she said with tears in her eyes. I didn’t reply because I mean I didn’t have anything to say.

“Answer me!” She yelled.

I dropped my face to the ground and fell on my kneels as a tear dropped from my face.

“I’m sorry mom” I said with tears in my voice.

“Why didn’t you tell me” she said with her tone so desperate.

“A hundred thousand dollars…mum com’on” I said as a tear rolled down my face.

“At least you could have told me.. I’d look for where I could get the money from” she said. I could see her eyes filled with tears.

“And if you can’t mum?” I asked bluntly.

“I will….I promise I will” she said assuring me.

“Well mum I’ve made up my mind that I don’t want the treatment” I said.

“What!….no…you have to want that treatment” she said.

“I’ll get the money eh” she added.

“Mum” I uttered

“I’d get it” she said as she stood up an made her way down the stairs. She made tons of phone calls, pleading and hopefully hoping that people would lend her the money., but it was all in vein. I watched her as tears dropped from her face and I walked up to her to give her a hug.

“Mum just let it be” I said.

“No…no way..I can’t watch my only child, my life, my everything die just like that” she cried

“I will surly get that money” she kept assuring me.

“I promise” she added.


I’m sorry for the late update

Chapter 11: until we meet again

Chapter eleven

Stacy’s P.O.V
(Words in brackets are stacy thought).

I woke up having this weird headache. I got up and went into the bathroom to rinse my face. I came back out and went to lay on my bed. Until when I notice what was beside me. I jerked up.

(James!.. What’s he doing here?).

“hey!” I yelled.
“James! ” I shouted.

He groaned before he sat up straight.
“what?, why you shouting? ” he asked still trying to wake up fully.

“what are you doing here?” I asked.
“why are you on my bed?” I added.

“which one should I answer first? ” he asked.

“Dude!” I whisper shouted.

“Okay okay.. Well, you were so damn drunk, you begged me like toddler to take you home, and so I did”. He said
“And it was too late to go home so your mum brought a great idea, she said I should just spend the night here, plus my folk didn’t see any problem with that” he said
“Did I answer your questions well?” He asked giving me a smirk.

“Okay…good excuse” I hissed.
“But that didn’t mean you could sleep on my bed” I said.

“That couch wasn’t comfy at all” he said pointing at the couch near the window.

“So?…the floor was there” I said giving him a fake smile.

“Stacy seriously?….the floor?” He whisper.

“Whatever” I hissed.

“Yeah, you’re welcome, anytime” he said with a smirk.

“Disgusting….did I say thanks?” I groaned. He let out a chuckle.

“Well you know you’re actually very beautiful” he said as he stood up from the bed.

“Will you shut it” I asked.

“No, make me” he said smiling. I throw a pillow on him and he did the same to me. We started pillow fighting until he landed right on top of me. He was just to close, I could feel his packs. I saw his blue eyes, so sharp, with his long lashes and his thick black brows  His dimples were just too deep, which made him cute, his lips so smooth and with a peachy colour. He was good looking. Ok that was an understatement, he was handsome. Then I heard the door open.

James P.O.V.

I landed right on top of her, my body was pressed on hers. I could feel her smooth skin, her eyes were silver like bullets and her smile made me weak. Bang bang she shot me dead, before i heard the door open.

(Dang it I was about to kiss her).

“Oops sorry” her mum said.
“I didn’t interrupt did I?” She asked.

“Oh no mum” stacy said pushing me off her. I smirked. I mean her mum totally interrupted.

“Okay, well James your mum is here already” Mrs Vega said leaving the room.

“Oh no…not now” I hissed.

“What,, you’ve gotta leave now, I mean now” stacy said emphasising on the now.

“Yeah, yeah” I took my shirt and put it on and headed downstairs.
“Bye” I said giving her a smirk.
I got downstairs, and I saw my mum talking with Mrs Vega. They were both laughing, I could tell they were friends already.

“Hey mum” I said.

“Sweetie” she replied as she walked towards me to give me a hug.

“Where’s stacy?” Mrs Vega asked.

“Err….she’s upstairs” I said pointing upstairs

“I’m here mum” she said as she walked down the stairs.

“And she’s here” I said nodding my head.

“Good morning ma” she said to my mum..

“How are you dear, hope you’re feeling better?” My mum asked.

“Yes ma” she replied politely.

“Thank to me” I said smiling. Stacy gave me a knock on my head that made me a let out a groan.

“Ouch that hurts” I said rubbing the assaulted area of my body. My mum and Mrs Vega let out a chuckle.

“Well Hannah your daughter is so beautiful” my mum said facing Mrs Vega.

“Oh thank you” Mrs Vega replied smiling.
“Your son too is good-looking, ok that was an understatement” Mrs Vega adddd. They both bursted into laughter.

“I told you you were beautiful didn’t i” I whispered to stacy.

“Hush it” she hissed.
Stacy and my mum had a few chat before we left for our house. Stacy and I both waved our self goodbye (weird huh?.. I know). Then my mum and I drove off


Well I’ve got nothing to say today.
But who is your best character
Pls leave your comments and views. I really appreciate the previous once.
Thanks once again for reading.I’d be updating soon.



[Until We Meet Again]

Chapter 10

Chapter ten

James P.O.V
(Words in brackets are James thought)

We got to the front of her house,stacy was already half asleep and her mum yelled my name as she opened the door.

“James!” Mrs Vega yelled.
“What happened to her?” She asked.

“She got a little bit drunk” I replied.

“My God, You could have stopped her from drinking too much” Mrs Vega said raising her voice a little bit..

“I tried ma….but she was just….too stubborn” I replied rolling my eye.

“Right, that’s stacy for you” she hissed.
“Thanks anyways for being there and bringing her home” she said smiling.

“My pleasure ma” I replied with a smirk.

“Okay please take her upstairs to her room, her room is the second on the right” she said almost immediately.

“Sure ma” I replied as I walked towards the stairs.

I climbed up the stairs, and my God, stacy has a lot of weight, her small body was just deceiving. I got inside her room, it was painted purple with pink poker dots, I laid her down on her bed that had pink bedsheets on and covered her with her pink duvet. I guess her favorite colours are pink and purple. Her room was very cool and had a sweet vanilla smell. I heard stacy groan.

“Thank you” she said, her voice was tiny so I had to move closer.

“For?” I asked as I came closer to her.

“Everything….I guess” she said, her voice was faint.

“okay” I smirked.

“I think I’m getting to……..” She said not finishing her statement.

“You’re getting to do what?” I asked
“Complete it” I added desperately.
Then I noticed she was already asleep.

“Yeah right” I said rolling my eyes, then I noticed her mum was already in the room.

“Son, it’s really late, will you still be able to go home?” She asked concerned

“Err..I don’t think so” I replied as I stood up from the bed walking towards Mrs Vega

“Would you call your parents to tell then you’d be spending a night here?” She asked stretching a cell phone toward me.

“Okay”.. I said stretching my hand to collect it. I dialed my mum number and luckily she picked it. I narrated everything that happened. My mum was a little bit worried.

“okay son, tomorrow morning I’d come over to pick you” she said. Apparently she knew Stacy’s house because I’ve told her about her.

“Okay mum, bye, love you” I replied as I hanged up. I went towards where miss Vega was sitting and handed the phone to her.

“They have no problem with me staying here ma, plus my mum is going to be here tomorrow morning to pick me up” I said.

“Okay that’s great.. Well there’s another blanket over there” she said pointing to at a drawer near Stacy closet.
“I’m off to bed now” she said as she stood up and made her way to the door.

“Alright goodnight ma” I said politely.

“Goodnight dear” she said shutting the door right behind her.

I took off my cloths and went into Stacy’s bathroom to have a shower. Her bathroom was so clean and spotless, it had a nice rosy smell. I got out of the shower, got a towel and whipped my hair and my body. I wore my trousers back and went ahead to take the blanket from the drawer. I went over to the couch that was close to the window to lay down. To be honest I didn’t feel comfortable at all so instead I changed my position to the bed. Her bed was so soft and comfy.. I adjusted well and turned to face her. Then I noticed her beautiful smile.

(So stacy is this beautiful, her Lip’s so thin, I mean I could kiss it all day)

“Think straight James” I said slapping my cheeks frequently.
But honestly stacy was another definition of beauty, her skin is so smooth and her lashes were a little bit long. Her hair had a rosy smell. I got lost just looking at her.

(Where as she been all my life.. I think I’m in love).

[Until We Meet Again]

Chapter 9: until we meet again

Chapter nine

We got to the pizza shop and ordered. Gosh I ate to my fullest. We laughed and gisted about random stuffs. There James was actually opening up to us and was losing a big. He told us about his family and how often he get scolded when he was in junior high for making girls cry over him.

“I mean….they all love me, when I was  twelve there was this particular girl in my class that actually called my mum to tell her she loved me….” He chuckled.
“I was shocked, I mean I never liked her. I got scolded for not liking her…how is that my fault. Some girls are just too….how do I put it…clingy per say” he said as he took another piece of the pizza and dipped it into his mouth.

“And you’re glad that they do cry because of you?” I asked.

“Is it my fault?” He asked giving me a smirk.

“I can help that stop” Becky said.
“Just get me a knife, I’ll help you design your face better and I tell you no one not even a dog would cry for you or even notice you” she said laughing. and I chuckled.

“Whatever” he hissed as he rolled his eyes. Becky and I both bursted into laughter. We finished eating and headed back home.

“Okay guys, see you later” Becky said as we got to my street.

“Okay..bye” I replied waving..

“See you later” James said. Becky left as we entered my Street.

“What’s the time?” I turned to ask James.

“Err…five thirty pm” he answered as he checked the watch on his wrist.

“Holy shit” I yelled.

“What?” James asked.

“I’m late for work” I replied as I hasten my footsteps.
“I need to call my mum” I added as I brought out my cell phone to make a phone call but unfortunately it went to voice mail.
Hey mum….err..I didn’t come home
after school, I had pizza with Becky
and James, so I’m off to work now,
I’ll see you later when I get back.
Bye I love you..
I cut the phone and raced down to the burger shop.

“Hey!…you’re too fast..wait” James yelled as he followed behind. I got to the Burger shol and stop to get my breath in order and I see James running towards me.

“Why are you following me?” Is asked breathing heavily.

“Actually, my folks won’t be home till seven so I told them I’d be hanging around with you for some while” he answered also breathing heavily.

“What!” I whisper screamed.

“I promise I won’t disturb you while you working” he said.

“Okay” I replied.
We both entered the shop and I could literally see most eyes were on James. I changed to my uniform and started work immediately.. Thankfully Mrs Collins didn’t notice when I came in. I could actually see Edna trying to flirt with James but I think James doesn’t like her due to his facial expressions.
Work went fast thankfully, the customers  that came over weren’t that much plus I also got paid today.(cool eh…I know). I changed back to my original cloths and headed home with James.

“Hey…you got paid today” he said as he faced me.

“So?” I asked confused.

“Ain’t you gonna treat me to something?” He asked giving me a smirk.

“Uggghhh” I growled.

“Com’on stacy.. Just one night” he said giving me a huge grin.

“Okay” I hissed. We had dinner at a near by restaurant and had few drinks too which later lead to many drinks.

“So tell me about your girl” I asked drunkenly.. I mean I was already drunk.

“stacy, you’ve had enough” he said as he tried to take a bottle from my hand.

“I’ll stop… Unless you answer my question” I replied still drunk.

“Okay…..err….I don’t have any girl” he said.

“That’s a lie” I replied taking another gulp for the bottle..

“You promised to stop” he whisper shouted.

“Well that was before you lied” I hissed.

“I really don’t have, honestly, I’ve not just found that girl” he said as his voice became low .
“Girls just want to date me because of the money and looks and fame, and I don’t want that” he added.
” I want someone that would like me for who I am and not what I am” he finished rolling his eyes.

“Aww….so touching” I replied dropping the bottle if beer on the table.

“So what about yours?” he asked.

“Mine?” I asked with a brow raised.

“Yea…your guy?” He said giving me a smirk.

“Guy!” I spat out.
“Well sorry to disappoint you, I don’t have a guy” I added.

He chuckled, “That’s a very big lie” he said.

“I’m serious here, I mean have you ever seen me with any guy, I don’t even know any guy apart from you and Michael and that other retard Steve” I said rolling my eyes.
“Plus why would any guy Even like me, I mean I ain’t pretty enough, I’m asocial and a geek” I hissed.
“I don’t even want any guy…..I dont need them, they’re like pain in the ass” I yelled banging my fist on the table.

“But I like you” James said smiling.

“Huh?” I asked surprised.
(That was the first time a real guy was going to ever say he likes me).

“I like you” he repeated his statement but this time with a grin.

“Well  I’d advice you not to” I replied

“And thank you but I don’t need that advice” he replied with a chuckle.

“I want to go home” I said as I stood up. I was very dizzy, I couldn’t stand straight then I fell back on my sit.

“Ouch that hurts” I said trying to get up again.

“See you’re already heavily drunk” James yelled.

“Reduce your voice… It’s no crime to be drunk eh” I replied smiling.

“It’s a crime…you should never get drunk” he said as he picked me up to stand straight.
“At least when I’m not there” he added.

“Okay sir” I said still with a huge grin on my face.

“Hop on my back” he said as he squatted down.

“What” I replied.

“Hop on dummy” he said.


I hopped on his back, he walked towards the counter to pay the bills and he walked out of the restaurant with me on his back. On our way home I ranted about random things that I didn’t even have a slight idea about. We got home and James pressed the bell. Next thing I know my mum opened the door and  she was standing in front of James.

Chapter 8:

Chapter eight

I woke up, I found my self on the floor my eyes were heavy and I felt so weak, then I realized I’ve been crying all night. I got into the shower, had my bath, brushed and got dressed for school. I went downstairs and went into the kitchen to have breakfast. Well my mum was already awake and she was taking her breakfast.

“You’re awake already” she said.

“Good morning mum” I said as I went to dish my cereals.

“How was your night?” She asked.

“It was okay” I answered.
“Yours?” I added.

“Sweet.. By the way how was the clinic yesterday?” She asked.

“Err..fine” I replied as I finished my cereals and gulped a cup of milk..  I got up to wash my dish

“Okay…and how was the result?” She asked again.

“Err…fine too” I replied a little bit tense as I whipped my hands. I went to the sitting room to get my back pack.

“Okay…and what did it say?” She asked with a brow raised.

“Err…malaria” I replied as I walked towards the front door.

“Malaria?…and you were bleeding from your noise?” She asked confused.

“And stress” I said affirmatively.. I turned to face my mum who was already getting ready for work too
“I’m off to school mum, see you in the evening” I said giving her a huge grin.

“Okay dear.. I love you” she said smiling back.

“Yeah me too” I said opening the front door and walked out if the house. I hoped to see Becky but instead I saw James.

“Good morning” he said smiling.

“Morning” I replied bluntly. No doubt I was surprised seeing him but I wasn’t in the mood to tackle him this morning.

“I waited for you yesterday but you didn’t show up, what happened?” He asked.

“Nothing important” I replied giving him a grin.
“What are you doing here, ain’t you meant to be on your way to school?” I asked.

“Yea…I am….but…I decided to walk with you” he answered giving me a smirk.

“Why?” I asked with a brow raised.

“I don’t know I just felt like it” he answered.

“Okay let’s go then” I replied with smile.

“Hmm….you’re kinda kind today eh..why?” He asked with a brow raised.

“Are you going or not?” I replied with a question.

“Right…right, let’s go” he said.
We walked to school, it was very quiet, so quiet unlike when Becky and I walked to school together. We got to school and luckily Becky showed up..

“Thank God” I mummered.

“Hey guys” Becky yelled from inside her mum’s car.

“Hi”  James shouted as he waved at her.
Becky cane down from the car, waved her mum goodbye and raced down towards us.

“Hey” I said smiling as she hugged me.

“What about me” James said with a sad tone.

“Dummy, come here” Becky said as she hugged him.

“Okay that’s enough eh, classes would soon begin” I said rolling my eyes.
They pulled out from the hug and we left for our classes. During my third and fourth period I just couldn’t concentrate. I kept thinking about what doctor Henderson said.

(I’m going to die soon if mum doesn’t get a hundred thousand dollars for my treatment, mum is already going through difficult times just paying for my school bills alone. This is too much. I can’t tell mum, I can’t break her heart).

“Miss Vega!, miss Vega!” Mrs Lawrence yelled at me, breaking me from my thoughts.

“Yes ma’am” I replied standing up.

“What’s wrong with you?” She asked. I looked around and could see the whole class watch me. I felt embarrassed.

“Err..nothing” I replied.

“Okay then, what did I say last?” she asked.

“Err….what did you say last” I replied giving a smile.

“Miss Vega!” She yelled.
The whole class laughed at what I said, and I felt really ashamed. It was totally unlike me. I knew every last word my teacher says.

“Go to the principal office now!” She said with anger in her voice.

“Yes ma’am” I replied lowering my head.
I got to the principal office and knocked.

“Come in” Mr Parker said with his same annoying baritone voice. I entered and shut the door right behind me.

“Miss Vega…ain’t you meant to be in class now? He asked surprised.

” erm.. Mrs Lawrence sent me here” I replied.

“And what did you do” he asked with a brow raised.

“Nothing really, I wasn’t just concentrating in class” I replied with a low voice.

“Why?” He asked.

“Err… I’ve got stomach upset” I lied.

“Oh…okay, maybe you should go see the clinic nurse” he said.

“Right I will” I replied almost immediately.

“Yeah, that reminds me…you’ve not submitted the form I gave you, and i told you to submit it before last week” he said with disappointment on his face.

“Oh..that,I’m sorry. I’d submit today” I replied.

“Okay, you may go now” he said.

“Thanks sir” I replied as I stood up to leave his office..

I left his office, then headed straight to my locker to grab the form Mr Parker told me to fill. I spotted an empty classroom, went in and sat down to fill the form. There were a lot of stupid question about family, health and why I needed the scholarship. I lied in some column and said the truth in few, but who cares anyways, I filled what I knew.

I didn’t attend the rest of the classes for the day and I also skipped lunch. Becky called ten times and also James but I replied with a text.
Hey guys, I’m sorry I couldn’t
make if for lunch. I had a running
stomach so I needed to visit the
school nurse. I’d see you guys
after school.

School was over, and this time I was the one to wait for James and Becky.

“Are you okay now” Becky asked as she came running towards me.

“Ye…ah” I said letting out a chuckle.

“How are you feeling now” James asked with a huge grin on his face.

“Okay..thanks for asking” I replied.

“Great, then we can all go have pizza” James said putting his arms over our neck.

“What” I replied surprised.

“James’s taking us on a treat, all bills on him” Becky said grinning.

“Co..ol” I replied.


Erm.. I’ve got nothing to say.
But I hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks for  vote and comments
I really appreciate it.
I’d be updating soon.
So..watch out😎
Thanks once again.

[Until We Meet Again]

Chapter 7: until we meet again

ver, and Becky was waiting for me outside the school gate.

“Hey babe” she said as I walked down the stairs

“Hi” I replied with a smile.

“Err…my mum is coming over to pick us up today” she said giving me a huge grin..

“Oh…that’s good” I said returning the grin.
“But I’m on errands again today” I added.

“Oh…okay” she said.
“I have a feeling your mum doesn’t like me” she said rolling her eyes.

“What?.. Com’on” I said letting out a chuckle.
“She does..a lot…plus after today there won’t be any more errands” I said as I walked close to her to give her a hug.

“Okay whatever” she said hugging me back.

“So I’ll be leaving first” I said as I pulled out of the hug.

“Okay…bye” she said.

“Bye” I replied waving and left for the clinic.

At the hospital.
“Good afternoon ma’am” I greeted the nurse at the counter.

“Afternoon dear, how may I help you?” She asked.

“I’m here to see doctor Henderson for my test results” I answered.

“Okay…..you’re?” She asked.

“Stacy….stacy Vega” I answered.

“Okay then…just wait over there” she said pointing to an empty sit close to the wall.

After waiting for some minutes, another nurse came to call me.
“Miss Vega, doctor Henderson would like to see you now” she said and walked away

“Thanks” I said as I stood up and walked towards his office. I got to his office door and knocked.

“Come in” doctor Henderson said.

“Good day sir” I greeted politely

“Miss Vega, how are you feeling today?” doctor Henderson asked.

“Pretty much better” I replied with a smile.

“That’s great… So, are you here with your mum?” He asked.

“Err…no,why?” I replied with brow raised. He gave out a short breath and talked.

“Well your test results are out” he said.

“Cool…so what’s wrong with me?” I asked eagerly.

“Err..are you sure you wouldn’t want your mum to be here?” He asked.
“I mean I could call her to come” he added.

“No…ain’t I old enough to hear any news about health?” I said with confidence in my voice.
“I mean it can’t be that bad can it” I added.

“Okay then” he replied and gave out another short breath.
“Well I checked your test results, and found some things were wrong with your lymphocytes” he said.

“Okay…so?” I said already feeling a little bit tensed.

“You’ve got leukemia” he said.

“Err…what’s that?” I asked. I wasn’t too sure of what the meaning was but I know I’ve heard it from someone or somewhere.

“It’s cancer of the blood” he answered.

“Oh..okay I’ve got cancer” I said taking a huge gulp of saliva down my throat.
“But..there’s a cure right?” I asked.

“Err….yea there is a cure” he said.

“Great” I said feeling relived

(It’s curable thank God)

“But being that it’s close to the final stage, it’s going to cost a little bit of money”. He added.

“Oh….kay…like how much?” I asked.

“A hundred thousand dollars” he replied.

“What!?.. A hundred what?…” I yelled.
“The fuck where I’m I going to get that kinda hella money” I said.

“Stacy…lower your voice” doctor Henderson said.

“How much do they even pay my mum” I said letting a tear drop from my eyes.

“It’s alright stacy” he said trying to comfort me.

“And if I don’t get the money, what’s going to happen to me” I asked with tears in my voice.

“I’m afraid,you’ll have less than some months to live” he said.

“Right” I said as I felt another tear roll down my face.

“It’s okay eh.. When you get home tell your mom..don’t worry about the money, it’s gonna come okay?” Doctor Henderson said.

“Yea sure” I said forcing a smile.
“Thanks doctor” I replied as I stood up.

“That’s my job…well here’s the result, would you like to have it?” He asked.

“Err..no…I’ll come get it later” I said .

“Okay..but make sure you tell your mum” he said..

“Sure” I replied as I left his office.
I was totally broken inside, I mean how was I going to tell my mum that I was going to die if she doesn’t get a thousand dollars before next month.
I walked out of the hospital and headed home.

(I can’t tell my mum… She’s gonna die, I mean the thought of her losing her only child if she doesn’t get that money. I can’t tell her).

“No!!” I shouted to the sky.
“I can’t die..I just can’t” I said with tears in my voice.

The cloud was getting dark and I could hear the thunder roar. I felt a drop of rain fall on my face, I looked up and saw that the clouds were already heavy and soon it was going to rain heavily.
I wasn’t bothered at all. The thought of dying kept running through my mind, it was trespassing. The rain came pouring down heavily, I didn’t even care, to me it was the perfect time to cry because no one would see the tears falling from your eyes.
I stayed out inside the rain for two hours, and when I was getting in it was already past eight. I didn’t even go to work. I got in front of my house and knocked., so unlike me.

“Stacy!” My mum yelled as she opened the front door.
“Where have you been?….I called your line and it kept directing me to voice mail” she said worried.
“Why were you walking in the rain?….my God You’re going to catch a cold” she added.

I ran towards her and hugged her tight. “Mum I’m sorry… It won’t happen again” I said trying to hold back my tears.
“I love you mum” I said letting a tear role down my face.

“Stacy dear I forgive you, you just…..made me worried eh….and I love you…so much” my mum said as she kissed my fore head.
“Go upstairs and change…you’re soaked already” she added.

I climbed up the stairs and went into my room. I got inside my room and feel to the floor, I started crying.

“I can’t die..please tell me it’s a lie.. Even if this life is so horrible, I just can’t die now, maybe after college or something…please” I pleaded as I cried so hard. I folded like a foetus on the cold floor. I could feel my throat tear and it was painful..

“Hey stacy, would you like to eat something?” My mum asked from behind my room door.

“Err….no mum..I’m not hungry” I replied trying to hide my teary voice.

“Are you okay?” She asked suspiciously.

“Uh..yea mum…just feeling sleepy though” I lied.

“Okay goodnight then, momma love you” she said.

“Yea..I love you too” I replied trying to hold back my cry from bursting out.
I heard her footsteps as she went downstairs.

(What doctor Henderson said was a lie.. I’m perfectly fine.. I’m perfectly okay).

[Until We Meet Again]

Chapter 6: until we meet again

Chapter six

I got to the hospital, luckily it was a family clinic so I new the doctor there. I went to the counter to ask for Doctor Henderson.

“Good afternoon ma” I said politely to the nurse there.

“Good afternoon miss, how can I help you” she replied with a smile.

“I want to see doctor Henderson” I said.

“Okay..you’ll have to wait for a bit” she said.

“What’s your name?” She asked.

“Stacy Vega” I replied.

“Okay..just go sit over there” she said pointing to a sit at the corner.
I sat there for about thirty minutes before a nurse came to call me.

“Stacy Vega?” She asked.

“Yes ma’am” I replied.

“Doctor Henderson would like to see you” she said as she left.
I made my way to doctor Henderson office, I got to his office and DR Henderson was boldly written on his door. I knocked.

“Come in” he said .
I entered and shut the door right behind me.

“Good afternoon sir” I said.

“My little Vega.. Wow you’ve grown so big”he said smiling. I blushed.

“So what’s wrong with you?” he asked.

“Malaria, thyroid, cold” he added almost immediately.

“Uhh…I don’t know” I said.
‘Recently I’ve been feeling dizzy, headaches, body pain and my nose has been bleeding really much” I followed up.

“Are you sure you ain’t pregnant?” He teased.

“Hell no… ” I whisper scream.
He let out a chuckle and wrote down my symptoms in book on his desk.

“Well you’ll have to do some series test before you leave so we can be sure of what’s exactly wrong with you” he said.

“Alright” I replied.
I left his office to get the tests done. I did all the test required with. an hour and went back into doctor Henderson’s office.

“So…have you done all the required tests?” He asked.

“Yes sir” I replied.

“That’s good. By tomorrow your test results would be ready, so would you like it to be sent to your house or would you come to the clinic to get it yourself?” He asked.

“I would come over tomorrow” I replied.

“That would be nice” he replied giving me a smile.

“Okay then I would be going now” I replied as I stood up from the chair.

“Okay…. Send my greetings to your mum” he said.

“Sure I will” I said as I walked out of his office shutting the door right behind me.

“Bye ma’am” I said to the nurse at the counter.

“Bye dear” she replied with a smile.
I left the clinic for my house. On my way I checked the time to see if I could make it early to work.

“Oh shit…it’s five already” I said as I raced down to the burger shop.

“Good afternoon ma’am” I said breathing heavily.

“You’re late” Mrs Collins said with an unimpressed look on her face.

“Sorry ma’am….I needed to see the doctor” I replied still trying to balance my breathing.

“Okay..get to work now” she said.
I changed my clothes and went over to the counter.
Work was kinda busy today, a lot of customers and a lot of dirty dishes.

I finished work by half past seven and headed back home. I got to the front door and was welcomed by my mum.

“Hey mum” I greeted.

“Hi dear, you didn’t come home after school?” she asked as she entered the sitting room.

“Yea…I went to see doctor Henderson” I said shutting the front door and following her.

“Oh that’s nice, what did he say?” She asked.

“Nothing… I went through some test and I’ll be going back there tomorrow to check the result” I said.
“Plus he says hi” I added.

“Oh..okay.. Should I go with you tomorrow?” She asked.

“No” I replied bluntly.

“Okay sweetie, I’ll be going to bed. now” she said as she stood up walking towards the stairs.

“Okay” I said walking toward the kitchen to get something to eat.

“By the way James came over and waited for you for like half an hour” my mum said.

“Okay” I hissed.

“He said he was going to visit tomorrow though” she added as she climbed up the stairs.

“He better not” I growled.

“Plus I gave him your number” she said as entered her room.

“What! Com’on mum you shouldn’t have” I shouted.
“Mum!” I yelled.

“I’m sorry he just kept bugging me” she said slamming the door.

“Right” I hissed.

I had my dinner and made my way upstairs. I got inside my room and did the norms. Norms I mean take my shower, do my homework, pray and finally sleep.
Youve got a message
You’ve got a message
My phone beeped.

“Oh…no..Becky” I growled.
I took my phone to read the message. Unfortunately it was from James.

Hey partner, where were you,
i mean i waited for you for an
Hour and a half. I needed to do
so homework with you. Well i
won’t be attending school
Tomorrow so I’ll see you later
Later in the evening… Bye

“Who cares” I hissed and went back to sleep.

Chapter 5: until we meet again

Chapter five

“I’m off to school mum, Becky’s waiting….bye I love you” I said to my mum as I ran out of the house. Obviously she didn’t hear because she was in her room upstairs.
Becky and I walked to school. I got to my locker, picked out my books and went for classes.

“Hey” James said.

“What” I replied bluntly.

“Can I come over to your house today” he asked.

“No” I replied bluntly again.

“Why?” He asked.

“Because I just don’t like seeing your face is that a good reason” I answered.

“Why do you dislike me so much” he asked.

“Oh thank God you know dislike you, why then are you still bothering me?” I answered with a question.

“Because I like you”he answered with a smile.

(He likes me, why would he like me, I mean I’m pretty messed up).

“Uh…I know you’re pretty messed up, that’s another reason I like you and I really hope we could be friends” he said giving me a smile.

“Err..right” I replied. I mean I didn’t know what to say. It all just came like a hit.

“So what’d you say….. Friends?” He asked giving me a smirk.

“Okay…friends” I replied.

We shaked hands to confirm my friendship. Then he said he was going to visit later in the evening.

(Gosh what was I thinking accepting him as my friend. I don’t even like him).

Classes were over and it was lunch time.
“Can I sit with you to eat?” James asked.

“Err….what of your friends?” I asked.

“They wouldn’t mind” he replied.

“Right” I said.

Becky wasn’t at the table yet so thankfully I wasn’t the one to show her James first, she would just meet him there, so she’d be the one to give herself the shock, plus Becky really has no beef with James so it was going to be cool with her seeing James there.

“Hey Stacy” Becky yelled from a far. I smiled in return as she walked towards our table.

“That’s your friend?” James asked.

“Yea why?” I asked.

“Err…..nothing… She’s cute” James said as he smirked.

“Yea I know” I said rolling my eyes.

“Hey…who’s this?” Becky asked as she sited James.

“Err….James… Pena” I said.

“Hi” James said stretching his hands for an handshake. Becky refused it at first but later gave in.

“Yeah hi” she said as she shaked him.

” I’m James and you are?” James asked politely.

“Becky…Stacy’s bestie” she said.

“Yea I know that….by the way you’re really pretty” he said giving her a smirk.

“Oh my… I thank you… You’re not looking bad too” she said giving him a big grin.

“Right” I hissed.
“Can we eat now” I asked.

“Sure” James said giving me a wink.

(Yack, take that back douche).

Through out our lunch, I could actually see James scan Becky. No doubt Becky was so damn cute but that doesn’t mean he could check her out like that. I was pissed, or was I getting jealous.

(Definitely not).

School was over…so quick this time. Becky and James were waiting for me outside the school gate. We were actually going to walk home together but unfortunately I had to be elsewhere.

“Er..Becky i won’t be walking home with you today” I said.

“Why?..where are you going to?” She asked suspiciously.

“Uh…wanna run errands for my mum” I lied.

“Okay no problem” she said giving me a hug.

“Hey dude!” I yelled at James as I drew out of Becky’s hug.
“Take her home safely” I said.

“Sure… I mean I wouldn’t want to take a princess home roughly” he said giving Becky a smirk. She blushed and they both started laughing.

‘Whatever ” I hissed.

“Bye” James said giving me a wink.

“Right” I groaned.

They both left towards our home direction and I left for the hospital.

[Until We Meet Again]

Chapter 4; until we meet again

Chapter four

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.
