“Oh my goodness Delaney! What on Earth happened to you?” Xavier’s mom skrie-ked as she stared at my we-t b©dy.
I wasn’t drenched and soa-ked like I was when I just got out from the swimming pool. It got a little dried as we made our way home.
“It’s nothing mom.” I shrugged.
“You can’t say you being we-t from your hair down to your toes means nothing. What happened? There wasn’t rain today, so how come?” She asked worriedly.
I chewed on my bo-ttoml!pand looked at Xavier for help.
“Well, she fell into the swimming pool at the [email protected] house.” He scoffed.
“Huh? How did it happen?” She rushed her words breathlessly.
“An anonymous pushed me into the swimming pool.” I mumbled, but clearly enough for her to hear me.
“What? Who could that be?” She asked and placed her hands on her [email protected]!st.
“I’ve got no idea.”
“And you won’t believe it mom, she almost got drown. But Rio and I were quic-k to save her.
She’s lucky I got to know on time else, she’d have drowned.” Xavier said and rolled his eyes.
“You don’t know how to swim?” She asked, with her eyes almost popping out from it’s socket.
“No.” I shook my head negatively.
“I’d be in my room mom. Delaney is such a kill joy. We left the [email protected] before it even ended.
And I didn’t even tell the [email protected] I was going home alre-ady. Delaney ruined every of my plans.” Xavier grumbled and glared at me.
I lowered my gaze to the floor, feeling guilty.
“I’d be in my room mom. And don’t forget to ask Delaney all about the [email protected]” He said sarcastically and without waiting for his mom’s reply, he jogged towards the stairs.
“Delaney, go freshen up alre-ady, so you won’t catch a cold.” Xavier’s mom smiled lightly at me.
I nodded my head and turned to leave but her [email protected] made me st©pped walking.
“Oh my God Laney! Did you dress like this to the [email protected]? And where are your shoes?” She [email protected]
“She’s crazy mom. Only a girl like her that would still dress like this in this twenty– first century.
She looked funny in them.” Xavier suddenly laughed.
Eish! Her voice was too loud and now, Xavier is gonna tease the hell out of me.
“Son, I thought you were alre-ady in your room.” She said and stared up at him on the stairs.
“I was almost there but your [email protected] made me take just few steps backwards.” He laughed.
“And don’t forget mom, you might nee-d to employ someone that will take her lessons on dressings. Seriously, at this age she can’t dress properly.” Xavier laughed and before his mother could say something, he alre-ady ran up the stairs.
I sighed and stared down at my feet.
“We nee-d to talk Laney, a lot.” Xavier’s mom said sternly while I nodded like a drenched puppy and trailed behind her as she walked away.

“Joanne?” I called in shock.
“Oh my goodness, it’s really you Joanne!” I exclaimed happily.
“Nice to see you again Clarissa.” She beamed and we both hvg briefly.
“It’s been so long Clara.” She smiled and ran her eyes all over my b©dy.
“Yeah. And it’s nice meeting you again. You were the last person in my mind I thought I’d see today.
And you’re looking pretty and elegant.” I smiled as I mentally admired her clothes, her shoes and her appearance as a whole.
Wow! She looked so pretty and she screams wealth.
“You don’t look bad yourself. It’s been so long.” She smiled.
“Yeah.” I said with a faux smile.
She looked rather sophisticated and I wonder how she [email protected]£ this wealthy from the last time I saw her. She’s really changed.
“Why don’t you get into my car so I’ll drop you at your house and we can talk better along the way.” She suggested.
I pondered over it for just some seconds before I shook my head negatively.
“There’s no nee-d for that Joanne.” I declined politely.
“Oh!” She mouthed disappointedly.
“Okay, how about we exchange contact?” She asked.
“Yeah, sure.” I agreed without any reluctancy.
“Okay.” She nodded.
She went to her car and took her phone and [email protected]£ back to me.
We exchanged contact and bid each other goodbye with pe-cks.
“Hey.” I took my gaze from my phone to stare at Delaney.
She looked better unlike when she looked like a soa-ked chick drenched un-der a heavy downpour.
She was simply clad in a go-wn that st©ps just on her knees and her wasn’t we-t and it was packed up freely.
She doesn’t look pale and she looked refreshed.
“What do you want?” I asked grumpily.
“Why are you always grumpy? You look mean when you grumble and speak rudely at me.” She pouted and walked to my b©dy.
“If that’s a compliment, then thanks.” I said sarcastically.
“Okay, I’m here because of something.” She fondled with her f!ngers, looking like a cute innocent baby.
“Okay, go on. What is it?” And this time around, I didn’t speak grumpily or rudely, just plain.
And as if she noticed it, a big smile curved on herl-ips.
“Well, why did you put yourl-ips on mine when you brou-ght me out of the swimming pool? What does that mean?” She asked.
Is this girl kidding me right now?
“I don’t un-derstand what you mean.” I lied, denying that I didn’t remember.
There’s no way I’m going tell her that, that was kinda a k!ss.
And I almost forgot, the last time I checked, she doesn’t know the meaning of k!ss, so I’ll just go by it.
“When I woke up, I noticed that yourl-ips were placed on mine and I knew it was that action that saved. So, what exactly is it?” She asked.
This girl won’t st©p right?
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. Me, I placed myl-ips on yours, how?” I insisted that I don’t remember.
“Like this.” And before I could process that word, I felt her softl-ips on mine.

My eyes snapped opened as herl-ips were still on mine.
I didn’t know what to do at that moment– should I reciprocate the k!ssor dis£ngage from it?
Herl-ips were so soft on mine and I really longed to k!ssher mercilessly. But, I don’t want to take advantage of her naivety.
I pu-ll-ed myl-ips away from hers and placed my hand on my thumping che-st.
I felt really confused. Why didn’t I take the opportunity to k!ssher like I’ve always wanted?
And why did she have to put herl-ips on mine?
Really, I felt guilty because, she wouldn’t have k!$$£d me if I hadn’t pretended to her that I didn’t know what she was talking about.
Even if I wanted a k!ssfrom her, then it shouldn’t have been this way– because she’s unaware of what she just did.
“Why did you do that?” I asked, trying to sound stern but my low voice rather betrayed me because it [email protected]£ out low and not stern.
“I… Wanted you to remember what you did to me and I want you to tell me exactly what it means.” She said lowly and bowed her head.
“It’s something you’re not supposed to know. And let me give you a piece of advice, don’t go about placing yourl-ips on others, so you won’t get yourself in trouble.” I huffed and rolled my eyes.
“You can leave now.” I ordered and pointed towards the door.
“But Xavier…” She whined but I shushed her shut.
“Why are you being too inquisitive Delaney? It’s bad you know? It’ll only land you into trouble.” I reprimanded her calmly.
“Okay, I’ll just get going now.” She mumbled and started towards the door.
She turned to stare at me briefly, before walking out of my room.
“Argghhh!” I gro-an ed and plomped ha-rd on my be-d.
I stared up at the ceiling and t©uçhed myl-ips, reminiscing on how herl-ips felt on mine.
I’m starting to think like an high schoolgirl who just had her first k!ssfrom her lover and b©yfri£nd.
I smiled lightly and li-cked myl-ips, remembering how those softl-ips felt on mine.
Truth be told, I really wanted to k!ssher back so badly, but I just had to restrict myself.
I shouldn’t take advantage of her naivety. Even though, I’m kinda grumpy and arrogant, I still have a concience.
But seriously, I really nee-d to get that brief– should I call it a k!ssor…?
Eish! Maybe a l!pto l-ips tuff.
Gosh, I’m going crazy and all thanks to that alien; Delaney.
I sighed and snuggled into my blanket and buried my face in my pillow.
Why was Xavier suddenly mad at me for placing myl-ips on his?
Was it something I wasn’t supposed to do?
Why do I always make him angry?
When will I eventually make him to st©p being mad at me?
He’s mean to me and I don’t like it.
I guess from today, I’ll try my possible best so as not to offend him.
I’ll be of my best behaviour and I’ll avoid ma-king him angry with him.
Now thinking about it, I nee-d to do something so he wouldn’t be mad at me anymore.
The plan I’ve got, I pray it works out perfectly well.
I’m gonna make him smile and who knows, he might even hvg me and I’ll really love that to happen.
I nee-d to plan this out perfectly so I won’t make any mistake.
I yelled angrily and broke my dressing mirror and everything that were on my dressing table.
My makeup were everywhere including broken glas-s objects.
As I tried to go back to my be-d, my feet [email protected]£ in contact with the broken glas-ses and I had to winced painfully.
“You’re only gonna end up hurting yourself so bad.” Blair said calmly.
I yelled angrily, ignoring the piercing pain on my bleeding foot.
“Calm down Brielle, don’t hurt yourself okay?
Come now, I’ll tend to your injuries.” Brianna cooed softly and wra-pped her arms around my n£¢k, but not ti-ghtly.
Tears rolled down my cheeks as I stared into space.
After drinking our wine and ma-king merriment, we left the room to go check on Delaney and know if something bad happened to her.
I was so eager that I felt nervous as we approached the pool side.
To my utmost dismay, I was told Delaney was saved by Rio– though he couldn’t swim, and Xavier who actually made her concious.
They had left together and I was greatly pained.
I lost again!
I fv¢king hate that s*it.
Brielle doesn’t accept defeats and I’ll definitely get to her again– I had promised myself inwardly as I seethed in anger.
I felt really bad that Xavier was there to save her, just when my plans were alre-ady going out smoothly.
Why didn’t she just drown, so I can wholly focus on getting rid of Chelsea?
“I have a plan Brielle. Why don’t we use Chelsea to get at Delaney and indirectly, we’d be hurting Chelsea too.
Let’s kill two birds with one stone.” Brianna sm-irked as we sat on my be-d after she had tended to my injuries and wra-pped a plaster on it.
“How do you wanna go about it?” I asked, finding the idea really brilliant.
“Just watch me put a call across Chelsea and we’d talk. You’ll hear our discussions and I’m very sure that she wouldn’t reject such offer because I noticed that, she doesn’t like Delaney.
And as for the three of us and especially you, you don’t like the both of them. It’ll just be exactly killing two birds with one stone at the same time.” Brianna laughed.
“Seriously Brianna, you’re so smart.” I beamed happily at her brilliant suggestion.
“I have her phone number, don’t even ask me how I got it. I always have my way.
I’ll call her now and hear whatever she has to safe.” Brianna smiled proudly.
“Okay, go ahead.” Blair and I chorused together ecstatically.
She took her phone from the be-d and scrolled throu-gh her phone.
She cli-cked on Chelsea’s number and within just few seconds, the call went throu-gh and it started ringing.
Is Chelsea really gonna work with them to get rid of Delaney?
