(She’s too Perfect)
By: Faith Lucky.
“Come on,come on” mum said as she held my hand and took me out of the room with her.
When we got to the stairs, she paused and made sure I was good enough, then we proceeded on the stairs to the sitting room .
I felt really nervous! I’d be getting to see Noah!
Mum and I got to the sitting room and there we met Noah and his family!
Oh my gee! They were real!
They had just entered and were alre-ady at the dining with dad and Tammy.
“Oh! They’re here! plea-se, meet my wife and daughter” dad announced as soon as mum and I stepped in.
“Ah! She’s pretty” Noah’s dad said with a little chuckle.
Noah and Rex were alre-ady sitting
“Good evening, sir. Good evening ma” I smiled nervously, giving them a little bow.
“Good evening dear. She takes after her mother” Noah’s mum also complimented and I felt my head becoming two.
“Come on,come on, let’s all have a seat” dad said and we all moved towards the table and took a seat.
“Hi Noah” I said in my warmest voice ever as I sat, facing him.
“Hi” he muttered un-der his breath and reached for a glas-s of wine.
Oops! I breathed out a de-ep sigh.
“Hi…Rex” Tammy giggled.
“Hi, pretty” he replied and Tammy’s cheeks turned pure red.
“Um…Sigmund” dad called after a little pause
“I really want to appreciate you for honoring my invitation and coming over for this dinner. I know for someone like you, it should be difficult, but you made it possible”.
“Oh! Come on, Richa-rd . We used to be closer than this – but business and family got in the way” Noah’s dad replied and they laughed.
“It’s fine. I’m really glad for the success of this meeting. At least, our children got to meet each other”.
He smiled and looked at me, then back at Noah and my cheeks flu-shed.
Oh, my gee!!!
But Noah…he wasn’t even smiling or staring at anyone.
The maids were alre-ady dishing out the foods.
Suddenly, the door opened and my heart skipped as the thought dawned on me..
I turned and as expected, it was Maxine.
I was so bittered and pained that I didn’t even notice the numerous cars parked outside the house to think Noah and his family were alre-ady here.
I got to the entrance and pushed the door open and my eyes dimmed at the people I met at the dining.
Oh, my God! They were here alre-ady!
Noah and his family! They’re here!
I paused at the door, feeling scared to go in. I wasn’t expecting to see them. I mean, it didn’t even occur to me.
They all looked at me and my nervousness increa-sed.
Slowly, I shut the door and counted my steps towards the room.
Noah was staring keenly at me, obviously telling my face looked familiar.
Oh God! plea-se, don’t let him say a word about me dancing at the bar.
And Rex…he kept smiling.
“Oh! Is this…Maxine?” Noah’s dad asked.
“The daughter of your late brother?”
“Uh…yes, she is” uncle replied, looking uneasy – same with aunt, Tammy and ru-by..
They all looked like they wanted to eat me up.
“Um…good evening” I threw a general greeting, not knowing who to greet in [email protected]
“Good evening, dear. She looks so pretty” Noah’s mum complimented.
“Good evening, how was school?” His dad asked.
“It…it was fine, sir. Thanks”
“Hello Maxine” Rex also said and my heart skipped.
“Good evening sir” I greeted shyly and looked at Noah.
He had alre-ady taken his eyes back to his meal
But don’t let him say a word about me, plea-se.
“Well, I guess you’re in time to join us for dinner…”
“No, no, she won’t be eating with us” Aunt suddenly cut off Mrs Sigmund who was talking
“Huh? Why?” She asked.
“Well…she’s got other things to do. Come on, Maxine; hurry upstairs” aunt urged me and I nodded and took the stairs.
As I got into the room, I suddenly felt rejected and pained.
Recalling how my aunt had detested the idea of joining them – it made me feel so unimportant.
I sighed and sat on the be-d for a while.
Gosh! I was so hungry.
After a while, I decided to take a shower.
After showering, I found something simple to wear and sat on the be-d. I couldn’t go to the kitchen because that’d warrant me reaching the dining and I didn’t want that to happen.
I felt so tired and bored and decided to do something fun – practice!
The competition was coming up tomorrow and I was yet to practice.
No matter how perfect I was, I still nee-ded to get re-ady.
I hurried to the wardrobe where I had hidden my ear phones and brou-ght it out. I had gotten it with the money I received from dancing at Pablo’s bar and whenever I was free and alone at home, I’d just connect it and dance.
I smiled as I took it out and inser-ted the memory card. Well, thank goodness the entire family were having dinner downstairs. Probably, I should keep myself company up here.
I rushed out of the room and went out to the big quiet balcony, where I felt like was on t©p of the world. That was my favorite dancing sp©t in the house because it made me feel I was flying.
I connected the headphones happily and set to work.
The dinner was kinda boring me because I hadn’t gotten what I wanted. Dad and Noah’s parents kept talking about business and all that but Noah didn’t even spare me a glance. How am I supposed to get his attention?
Finally, mum’s plan worked. The maid in charge of it tried pouring him some drink and purposely spilled it on his legs, but of course, she made it look like it was a mistake.
“Oh my God!” She exclaimed in fear as everyone [email protected]
“I’m so sorry. plea-se, forgive me. I’m so sorry”.
“You clumsy fool!” Mum snapped.
“Have you lost your s-en-ses? Huh? Or, have you gone blind?”
“plea-se ma’am,I’m so sorry. It wasn’t intentional”.
Noah was just speechless, staring at his expensive white which was now stained.
“Get lost!” She snarled and the maid shivered and ran away.
“Noah son'” dad called.
“I apologize for that. Some of these maids can be really clumsy at times”.
“Yeah, its okay. I’ll take care of it” Noah replied, his voice sounding so sweet.
“ru-by plea-se, show Noah to the guest room so he can wash himself” mum said and my heart jingled.
I felt like smiling but tried ha-rd to restrict myself.
“No, don’t bother” Noah suddenly said, ma-king me cold.
“I’ll take care of it” he added and stood up.
“No! You don’t…have to worry. I’ll just take you there” I insisted and didn’t know when I stood up.
“plea-se, sit. I’ll find my way. You can be sure I won’t go missing” he replied and before any other person could say a word, he left the dining, taking the stairs.
Oh my God!
That lady and her mother looked really tricky.
Anyway, I couldn’t afford going to a room alone with her. I just didn’t like her.
I took the stairs, not knowing where exactly I was headed.
How do I find the guest room? And why thefu-ck did that maid have to spill drink on me? Was she blind or something?
I got to the end of stairs and [email protected]£ across a long pas-sage and suddenly, I noticed some movements at the balcony in front of me.
It seemed as if…
I inser-ted my hands in my trou-ser pockets and decided to go have a look and my heart beamed at the sight in front of me.
It was a lady dancing.
The same lady at the bar.
She had an earphone connected and danced with so much enthusiasm – like she was practicing for something.
Wow! She was damn good.
I felt relaxed as I stood watching her. I could watch something like this for an entire day.
Her dance steps were amazing and I admire dancers like her.
The same way I admire the veiled lady.
Suddenly, she st©pped dancing when she saw me.
She [email protected] in fright like she had seen a ghost and we both stood transfixed, staring at each other.
She was beautiful.

I st©pped dancing when I noticed someone standing and staring at me.
Oh my God!!
My feet [email protected]£ cold instantly as I stared at him, trying to un-derstand if it were a dream or something.
What’s he doing here?? I mean, I thought they were all having dinner?
Oh my God!!
He continued staring speechlessly and finally, started walking towards me, ma-king my heart beat fas-ter than a [email protected] drum.
Oh my God! What’s he doing, plea-se?
I disconnected the headphones from my ears and watched him as he [email protected]£ closer and stood in front of me. I noticed a stain on his dress.
“S…sir” I said in a cracked voice.
“Hi” he muttered and leaned on the bars of the balcony.
I couldn’t even feel my heart anymore. What am I to do? Should I run away?
“Your name is Maxine?” He asked and I nodded slowly, wondering how he knew.
“You are…the lady at the bar, right?”
“Y…Yes” I replied with my eyes dancing on the floor.
“You’re quite a good dancer. Good job” he complimented and I had to lift my eyes to look at him..
My eyes beamed but I tried not to show the excitement.
“Thank you sir” I said with a little smile.
We remained silent for a while.
“Well…I was on my way to the guest room to use some water on this. Would you mind…showing me the way?” He asked, pointing to his shi-t and my heart skipped.
He wants me to accompany him to the guest room?
Oh my God
“Um…okay, sure” I replied and took the lead, feeling so nervous.
Noah was right behind me!
Like…Noah – the guy I’ve always admired!!
I kept praying I don’t miss any step and sl!pand luckily, we got to the guest room successfully.
“This is it, sir” I said politely as I held the door open for him.
He nodded and walked in and urged me to come in as well.
I gulped nervously and followed him in and he proceeded into the toilet.
I exhaled de-eply as I stayed alone in the room. Gosh; that was so scary.
I sat on the be-d and placed my hands on my che-st, trying to calm down my nervousness. I still couldn’t believe it – Noah was close to me.
Holy Christ! How did he even get to meet me at the balcony?
After a while, he [email protected]£ out of the toilet, his dress looking better than before. I couldn’t believe this was the same guy I only saw on TV’s and billboards.
“Are you [email protected] of the Star Dance competition?” He asked and I shook my head.
“Why? You’ve got a great talent”.
“Yeah- I…. I just couldn’t meet up. Maybe, next time”,I replied and he nodded and sat next to me on the be-d.
Huh? Isn’t he returning to the dining?
Just then, his phone started ringing and he brou-ght it out from his pocket and picked the call.
☎Why’s it so difficult knowing who she is?
He bent his head and itched his eyes.
☎Listen to me, I really wanna know that lady’s identity. She isn’t a ghost, is she? And I’m pretty sure she doesn’t wear a veil her entire life. She must have friends – people that know her. Even dancing at the [email protected] – she had make up and costume – she didnt do them herself, Seth. They were done by people – people who saw her face!
So, let it be known across the country – pas-s this information to every news organization – anyone who gives me the identity of the Crazy dancer will be rewarded awesomely by me beyond imaginations.” he said on the phone and I turned in a flash to look at him.
I was trying so ha-rd to control my anger as I boiled within me. Why the hell did my plans have to scatter, huh? Why did Noah insist on going alone to the guest room?
“Um…Honey” Richa-rd suddenly called.
“Can I speak with you for a second, plea-se? ”
“Huh? Is there a problem?” Mrs Sigmund asked.
“No, no, not at all. plea-se, don’t panic. I just…nee-d to inform her of something urgent” Richa-rd replied and looked at me and we stood up together.
What’s wrong with him? Why does he have to request a conversation in the middle of such dinner?
We took the stairs and st©pped when we got to the quiet pas-sage, not realizing we were in front of the guest room.
“Hey, Richa-rd . What’s wrong? What’s so important?” I asked as we stood facing each other.
“There’s a problem, Hannah” he replied with a worried look.
“I just got a text – it’s Rex. He wants us to re-lease Maxine to work as his personal maid in the mansion. And he’s using some threats on me if I should refuse”.
I [email protected] in shock
Noah and I were about leaving the be-d when we heard some voices outside room – obviously close to the door.
I could recognize them – it was my aunt and uncle. What were they talking about?
Noah stood up and went closer to the door and I also did same.
We stood close to the door and their voices [email protected]£ clear enough.
They were talking about me!
“Why would Rex threaten you to re-lease Maxine to work as his personal maid?” I heard aunt asked and the agony [email protected]£ stirring in.
“What?” Noah flin-ched and I turned to see him wearing a crumpled look.
Oh my God! He’s also listening to them.
