“Before I forget.. “I suddenly remembered that I haven’t even invited her to my birthday party.
“What is it? ” She asked as she watched me take out my bag and brought out several Invitation (IV) cards.
“Oh good, I still have some left” I said as I littered red and white cards on the table in front of us.
“These are invitation cards” Paulina said.
“Yeah” I replied then gave her a white invitation card but when she was about to receive it, I blurted; “No” b’cos an idea niggled me
I withdrew the White card from her and returned it into the pack then I took out the red one and gave it to her.
“Why didn’t you give to me the white one? Besides, does the red and white cards have a meaning? ” She asked.
I smiled and said “Yeah, the white invitation cards are for just anybody while the red ones are for special people” I said.
“Oh wow! There are few red invitation cards here but wait, you mean I’m special to you? ” She asked without reading what was written on the card first.
“Why not? ” I said and she smiled and blushed..
Her smile ~ It’s melting me softly.
“Your birthday? ” She blurted, as she just went through it.
“That’s next month and it’s also on Saturday…, this Saturday, February 2nd” She said sounding so surprised and happy about it.
“Tell me you are not gonna miss it”
“Why would I? I’m so thankful I met you” She said..
“Same here” I said.. I didn’t even know when I placed my hand over her neck and she relaxed her head on my shoulder.
“Who else did you give a red invitation card? ” She asked me.
“Angela” I just said.
She slowly took away her head off my shoulder and she began to stare deeply into my eyes, if her eyes were dangerous object, i would have gone blind.
“I know she is your girlfriend but do you still love her? ” She asked.
Ok, she just came and she is asking me such a question, a question I do not have an answer to.
“I….Paulina” I stammered.
“Don’t worry, just be sincere” She said.
“Ok, yes I think I still do” I told her and she smiled; obviously that was a false one.
“O..k” She said then she continue to rest on my shoulder -our initial position.
I wish we could forever be like this, I’m so so lucky.. I’m sitting next to the world most beautiful lady.
He is just confused,
He do have a girlfriend yet he clings around me and spends most of his time with me,
He let me hold and touch him the way I want and like to..,
If he were to choose between his girlfriend and I, he will definitely pick me over her and over every other girls,
If I kiss him on his lips, he will definitely reciprocate…
And then, he is finally mine and mine forever.
I never knew it would be so easy to have a boyfriend, it’s the best thing that would ever happen to me. Funny enough, I can also have more boyfriends if I want to but no, I don’t. Aw! This feeling is so sweet.
All of a sudden, it was as if someone held my throat but there wasn’t anyone doing so..
I couldn’t breathe. Uh, what’s happening to me?
I coughed out severally, I found it so difficult to cough too.
“Paulina… Paul.. ” I heard Frank calling my name. He raised up my head and looked at my face and said “You don’t look well and and your eyes are red”
I wanted to speak but I couldn’t, from my nose down to my throat feels faulty.
But I could hear him, I could hear the world..
“What’s happening to the new girl? ” I heard so many guys yelled, Of course they must have been staring at me before this un-understandable thing happened.
“Water, get her water” Frank shouted – panicking.
Before he could say Jack, I saw guys surrounding me with bottles of water.
My sense organs were fine except for my nose, I couldn’t just breathe and it’s making me cough severally and severely.
“Go, leave the way” He yelled at them without receiving a bottle from anyone of them even after he demanded for it himself.
“Let’s go to the nurse” He said to me and carried me in a bridal style… The people in class (Both the guys and girls), that- -were aware of me and what suddenly happened to me wanted to tag along but Frank wouldn’t let them. He hurried out of the class with me in his hands and he rushed me to the school clinic.
“Frank” Now I was able to speak immediately we got to the clinic.
“Are you okay? ” He asked.
“I’m okay. Please put me down” I said, I was only able to speak so softly and gently.
“Are you sure? Should I call the school nurses? ” He asked while he dropped me on a nearby chair and made me sit on it then he sat next to me.
“No, I’m fine now” I said as I gradually found my right voice.
I swear, I don’t know what just happened to me.
“You weren’t yourself earlier, what happened? ” Frank asked.
“I don’t know” I told him but when it seems like he is still really worried, I had to tell him; “I’m fine, don’t worry”
– – We heard the school bell -jingled.
“Is that for school dismissal?” I asked him.
“Yeah” He asked.
“Ah Good! Let’s go home”
“And I’ll be dropping you off today too” Frank said and I smiled and nodded.
