Chapter 2 It was all a prank Charm. Stay with it.

( Lily

Charm POV's )

“Oh my gosh! I am not mistaken! I do really have a great day?! Breakfast is served!” I freak out. Looking to my brother who just recover for what I have done. 

Hmmm? I wonder what’s new on him. Anyways…  

“Thanks bro.” with my best smile.  “Is it my birthday?” asking him as he joined me in dining table. He smirked and ...

“I don’t even waste my money to that kind occasion Charm. Such a waste.” He is thrifty. Too thrifty!

“Well, if it’s not my birthday then it’s yours? Right?” My brother grins. As if I don’t know his birthday.

“Tss. You should check the calendar. Too advance?  You’re rushing, I’ll get old easily.”

“So, if no one is celebrating a birthday, what’s the occasion? You prepare this.” Because my brother is also an early bird.  “Did you get promoted?” I consecutively asked while eating.

“Soon, right after your wedding.” that's an unexpectable respond. Is he starting to joke with me? Hehehe. Try me Carlos. 

“Wedding?!” too fancy dream of mine. But I am not yet ready. Who would be ready if I haven’t met my groom? Duh…  “What a word. Hello? Are you out of your mind? That would happen five years from now," showing my five fingers to him.  "And that would only happen if… And only if, my prince charming has arrived!" as I clasp my hand then put it in my side of my check, daydreaming again. 

But my brother... is not a joke, about being a killjoy.

He just kicked my feet under the table!

"And what’s the connection of my wedding to your promotion?” responding while recreating scenarios on my mind that make me smile. Multi-tasking is not a problem to me. 

 “You know what bro; I have a very good-looking Ideal man.” Come to me! My hubby!

Until my daydreaming cut by my brother by responds again. 

“Five hours from now.” It is a jawdrop respond. I wonder, what he eaten last night? 

He continues eating while giving me sarcastic look. I keep staring back  to him. 

“You know what; I’ve been wondering if you’re still dreaming bro. Five years seem too fast for you. You just converted it to five hours? Seriously? That’s ridiculous! And take note: I’m single." stating the fact.  "I never had a boyfriend, and you haven’t met him yet. And hahahahaha! You will be the one to decide if he’s the right guy for me. He will still serve you just like he has to win your heart first before mine. I know you’ll let him do the old style of courtship.”

Kinda interesting brother. Ahahaha. I laugh as the thought playing in my mind. That man will fetch a water, cut a firewoods and sing a song to me at the window. (Harana, Filipino traditional Courtship)

“I‘m deadly serious Charm.” cutting my daydream again. 

I give him a playful look and I just find it amusing looking at his serious face.

“Are you sick?” that’s all I have left. I am out of words, maybe because he repeatedly put my bait respond to the trash. I want to end his joke. Or else I am the one who will be looser and do the dishes. But... he is really serious.

“Tss.” he abruptly stands and get something on the top of fridge. And return handing me a… 

It’s a perfectly made red wedding invitation! I know it cost a lot to have this customized; I also want an invitation like this in my wedding.

“Who gave it? It’s so beautiful.”

“Open and read it.” he grimly said.

I don’t know what my brother’s thinking right now, I guess he’s having a good time of me. So, I opened it. It greeted me with smell of expensive lavender scent.  I bet; this is from rich couple who will get married soon. They don’t think that this is only a waste of money. What if they cut the expenses and give the other to charity groups? Selfish… 

Then… retaliate to my brother given tasked, I was so clueless when I read my name.

“Maria Lily Charm Opiana.” I blurted to my brother. But I stop. The name was familiar to me. REALLY!

I looked back at my brother…

“It’s my name!” too stupid right? And my brother smiles devilishly.  What? A bride?!

What? Wait? A bride?! Me?! Seriously?!!!

Then I cracked on laughter. My brother smile gone. You don’t get me on this prank brother!

“You know bro, I’ll support you with this. As long as you’re having fun. HAHAHA!”

“Charm! I’m not playing with you! This is a serious matter.”

“Haha. I know! I know, you never played joke on me, right?”

His face... full of accusation. Want to shout at me with the wrods... "Don't be stupid Charm!"

His phone rang and this interrupted our conversation. He left my sight and answer his phone.

At this moment I don’t know who’s dreaming between us. I glanced at the invitation again.

You wouldn’t believe me with this. Guess who’s my groom?  LOL. Yeah you got me already Carlos. I surrender!

I can’t stop myself from laughing again.

What are you thinking Carlos? Should I send him to a psychiatrist? Honestly. He never pranks me!  It is really funny. Not the type of brother I used to know.

Oh! I almost forgot to tell, who’s my groom? HAHAHA.

No other than JOEFF LEE CHAN!

Yeah you read it right. He’s the CEO of a well-known entertainment industry and Stuff Manufacturer.

My brother playing me silly things. Did he eat something bad last night?

But you know what bro, in fairness he’s my type but out of reach. Nice game. I love it Bro Carlos! You got me there!

I know him since his name is so popular in our campus; however, someone has already stolen my heart, my beloved dear Lee Min Ho! So, I would never have an interest with that Joeff Lee Chan.

“Hey bro you just wasted a paper to print this. Instead of him, why not my dear Lee Min Ho. I am his hard-dying fan!” I see him hung up the phone.

“Charm get ready. Someone will be here in a few minutes.” a soldier tone of my brother.

“Get ready your face. I am going to keep this.”

“Charm!” he yelled.

Ouched. My ears.

I was shocked the way he acts; my bro looks really serious.

“Huh”? I answered pretending everything is fine.

“This is a serious matter. You’re getting married!”

It was all a prank Charm. Stay with it.
