THEME; WHY DON’T YOU INVITE HER TO THE PARTY
Tomorrow is the day my best friend is coming back from his trip. I can’t believe it’s already a month since he left. A lot of things have happened in his absence. I can’t wait to fill him in on things, like the incident at the Unique club and the lady I encountered who I later met at the mall. As much as I try not to think of her, I still find myself thinking of her. I’ve never felt this way before. I need to get her out of my mind.
I need to clear my head and the best way to do that is to go to the garden. I just like visiting the garden anytime I feel troubled, I don’t know if it’s because of the fresh air there or the serenity of the garden that make me like it.
I left for the garden with my headphones plugged into my head. I sat under a bougainvillea plant and I started listening to various songs on my playlist.
After a while, I decide it is time to head back in.
I got into the living room and my heart stopped beating for a while.
What’s she doing here? How did she know I live here? Is she here to see me?. All these questions were going through my mind when she said
“Hey, are you stalking me now or what? ”
I almost laughed out loud.
“What are you talking about? “. I asked her.
“I mean what are you doing here?”. She asked back.
Now this is funny, she is asking me a question I should be asking her.
“This is my house”. I simply said.
“I didn’t know you guys are acquainted” my mom said while coming into the room. If only she knows that we are far from being friends.
I was about to correct her when she added
“Since Allison is your friend, why don’t you invite her to the party? ”
What? Can someone tell me this is not actually happening? How would I ask her to a party when she clearly show she doesn’t like my mere existence. By the way, I love her name though.
I saw Allison hand over a shopping bag to mom and she said.
“You can go and try it on while I talk with your son”
“Okay dear. I’d try it on now” my mom said and she left the room.
We’re almost through with Mrs Smith’s dresses and my arm is completely healed so I’ve been working on Mrs Cooper’s dresses. I have intention of taking it to her today after work.
I drove to the coopers mansion. The security guards called Mrs cooper before they let me in. I was asked to wait for her in the living room. I was waiting for her when someone came in. I look up thinking it was Mrs cooper when I saw the guy from the club coming into the room. He was casually dressed and he had headphones on. What the hell is he doing here? Why am I seeing him everywhere?
“Hey, are you stalking me now or what? ” I asked him.
“What are you talking about? ” he asked me.
“I mean what are you doing here?” I asked
“This is my house”. He said. I was about to reply him when I heard
“I didn’t know you guys are acquainted” Mrs Cooper said. Now that I’m looking at her properly, the guy resemble her so she must be his mother.
I wanted to talk but she continued
“Since Allison is your friend why don’t you invite her to the party”
Huh😒 what party?
I hand over the bag containing the dresses to Mrs Cooper and I said “you can go and try it on while I talk with your son”
“Okay dear. I’d try it on now”. Mrs Cooper said as she left the room.
I turned to him and asked “what party is your mom talking about? ”
“It’s the company’s anniversary. It’s now 25 years since it was founded” he explained.
“Okay, so many people are going to attend, right?” I asked him.
“Not really, just some few friends and colleagues” he said. I can’t believe I’m having a conversation with him.
“What is your name? I need to know since your mom assumed we are friends”
“I am Bryan Cooper” he said.
We lapsed into silence because there was nothing to talk about again.
I sighed in relief when Mrs cooper re entered the room.
“The dresses are perfect, Allison. Thanks so much. I really love them” Mrs Cooper said
“You are welcome ma” I replied her.
“Let me leave you and Bryan to your discussion” she said and left the room.
I turned to Bryan “I forgot to ask, where and when is the party?” I asked.
“Next week Friday and it’s taking place here” he told me.
“Okay. Goodbye” I said as I stood up to leave.
“Good bye and see you next week” he said.
