But I just left Raymond’s house and Leonard had told me that he was not around.
I read the message again and understood that he was actually expecting me. Really, so I’m that important to him that I didn’t come and he noticed.
How did he even get my number?
I then replied the test message with ; “Can I still come?”
His reply came very swift. “Be quick?”
Really? Happiness flew right, left and center inside of me.
Am I chatting with the head boy or somebody is setting me up here?
No, it’s Raymond.
Even if he is not the one, I believe he’s the one.
“Erm…Albert!” I called.
Albert was facing the table that was to the wall and was backing me.
I do not know what he was doing on the table.
“I want to…ern, leave.” I said.
“Leave? Why? ” He asked and came to stand before me.
“Nothing, maybe I will come next time.” I said and he stood akimbo.
“Did you have someone else you are dating already?” He asked.
I shook my head in response but couldn’t look at his face.
“I’ll be expecting you next time.” He said and I nodded.
I walked outside and he lead me out.
“Bye!” I waved to him but he never waved. He just kept looking at me.
I drove away.
But did Albert want me back or what?
I don’t understand how Albert is feeling , sincerely.
I ignore his thoughts and thought about Raymond’s test message.
I was so happy to recieve it.
I rode my bicycle to his house and stepped down, I looked around and then I saw Raymond standing with Rose, they were behind a flower.
There was so much happiness expressed on the face of Rose.
How do I tell him that I’m back now?
What if he is not the one sending me the message? I will just go before him and embarrass myself.
I brought out my phone and tested: “I’m around.”
I watched Raymond checked his phone immediately I sent the test message, he looked around and sighted me.
He took his eyes away like he didn’t see me.
Huh! Am I too short that he didn’t see me?
Isn’t he the same person that had told me to come?
He should have just let me stay where I was.
I hate nonsense, I was now sad and angry at how he just glanced at me like I was nothing.
I went to where my bicycle is in a bit to drive away when my phone beeped.
I checked and it reads; “What subject did you want me to teach you?”
I was stunned, I replied by typing; “Physics.”
His reply came as swift as possible; “Should I teach you the current topic, wave?”
“Yes.”I replied immediately.
” Okay, wave is a disturbance….” The definition and explanation of waves came from him and I stepped down from my bicycle.
Is this how he planned on teaching me?
Who in the world would ever understand stuffs like this.
“I’m leaving, thank you for the lecture?” I texted him.
“Wait, keep replying me, it’s the only way I can make Rose feel foolish, when she’s talking to me but I’m chatting, she will feel bored and leave ,then I will attend to you?” His reply came.
Now I understand the reason for his actions.
I began to reply his text, we continued texting each other for another five minutes, my card was already getting exhausted.
I was about telling him that I may not be able to text him again after two texts cause my money would he exhausted.
“Job done, come.”His reply came.
I looked up towards them and saw that Rose had left him.
I walked to him happily and stood before him.
We both stare into each other’s eyes and I blushed, I lowered my head shyly.
” Marie will be happy to see you.” He said and signalled for me to follow him.
I did happily. I was jumping happily behind him, I’m the happiest lady in the world right now.
