"Laura," I called her from behind when she was walking towards our villa at a fast pace. After she saw the girl, her face had been so straight and even more expressionless.
She wasn't okay. I could feel her. I certainly could feel the pain she was going through. And I wished I could lessen it. Though she might pretend that she was okay, I assumed she wasn't.
"What?" She didn't look back and continued walking.
I had been struggling to reach her. So rushing to her, I held her hand and decreased her speed a bit. "I do have long legs. But I don't have much energy to chase you, Laura."
"Who told you to chase me, anyway? Chase the girl, instead." She said, shooting me a murderous glare.
I clenched my jaw in confusion. "Which one?" I didn't remember talking about chasing any girl before.
"The girl who was so happy to see you right now. And you too." She mumbled, looked really pissed off. There wasn't anything to get pissed or get mad
Laura...Richard! I had heard this surname before. It was like years ago and I was quite sure that I did. His face wasn't a vivid memory but the name was. How come I didn't ask his full name yet? It was embarrassing."Ryan... have you ever seen me before?" I asked after we entered the little, cute villa.He nodded, placing his jacket on the couch. "Yeah. Of course."My jaw tightened. "When?"He remained silent for a while before parting his lips again. "A long ago."Of course, it was a long ago and that was why I couldn't remember it. "Where was it?"This time, he chuckled at my curiosity. But it seemed so dry and unreal. "In the club."I narrowed my gaze, realizing the playfulness of his voice. "No... before that!"He didn't reply and walked towards the mini handmade kitchen where he grabbed a glass and placed it on the cabinet. My gaze followed him quietly."Laura?" He called me as he opened the cap of the juice
Ryan...In the evening, we reached the west club where the party was supposed to be held. The club was significant, the music was all over the floors with colorful spotlights. Only a few people were hooking up, others were busy dancing, drinking. The aura seemed so typical and as a result, I doubted if she had pranked us or not.My suspicion came to a conclusion when I found Serene dancing behind Aaron. They both looked like two grown-up drunkard people enjoying the beats in their own worlds, not caring about anyone. I was right, it was just a regular party. Nothing was special."What are you thinking?" Beside me, Laura looked up at me as she wrapped her hands around my arm. She got my heart beating loud. It was new and foreign among these regular stuffs.Swallowing a gulp, I met her gaze. "Shall we go in?" She nodded and we started approaching the couple. But before we could do so, noticing us, Serene stopped dancing and ran to us, leaving her fiance on
