Chapter Two - Katharina

Call me crazy but as I finished eating supper with my dad and little brother I couldn't stop thinking about a certain birdy on my i*******m.

My dad made small talks and they talked about how their day was... but I wasn't really paying all my attention to them. I was wondering what Kathy looked like. I cursed under my breath a thousand times for not checking her up immediately after she accepted my follow.

Why was I so du...

"Honey... Precious!"

Dad's voice snapped me out of my thoughts, "yes dad?"

My little brother laughed and I sighed, "sorry dad.. There's a new teacher at school and a lot of things are about to change..."

"Is this teacher a man..."

I laughed, "God nooo dad... no... a woman.. it's a 21 year old girl from the US..."

He smiled, "okay good.. because for a second I thought he was distracting you. By the way, I was saying Thembi's father gave me three forms for you to fill in and submit at the Mayer's house... one post from the local radio station, the second one is from Soweto TV and the last one is this sport news paper..."

I smiled, "yeyiiiiii interesting... I promise I'll fill them in daddy and take them there tomorrow."

"The closing date is friday.. baby please it's time you use this journalism degree of yours..."

So when I was 17 I passed high school and I registered at university to study journalism because my parents thought I was insane for wanting to concentrate on dancing only.

So yep I became a qualified journalist and after turning 21 I did a few internships and learnerships but that's as far as I went.. the nicest thing was that I got to meet some of the biggest politicians in the country, including the ex President of the country.

I loved writing as much as I loved dancing.. so it wouldn't be hard to actually do both.

I smiled at my dad,"I promise I will definitely fill them in the second I get to my bedroom.."

"Or you can text on your phone." My little brother said and I stuck my tongue out at him, "I'll definitely text on my phone..."

My dad laughed and got up to hand me the envelope that has these application forms he was talking about.

I washed dishes, made sure that Nick goes to bed and then went to my bed. I was already in my sleeping shorts and a tank. I set the envelope dad gave me on my headboard drawer and threw myself in bed not forgetting to grab my phone.

A small smile formed on my lips as I quickly tapped on my i*******m to check on someone who made me smile..

I realized that she was online but the last text was what she said under my video.

I went to her inbox and debated whether or not to text her.. I mean even if I was to text her, the fuck was I going to say? 'umh Kathy you made me smile so helllllo'??? God.. she'll think I'm a creep.

I sighed and groaned. God.. what should I say?

A small smile came back to my face when I realized what I could say as my first text. Without even thinking about it because I knew I'd end up stopping myself. I quickly typed:

"Hey Kathy... is that like short for Katherine?"

Then I pressed the send button and held my breath.

Right about now I had no idea how to explain the anxiety I felt waiting for her to text back.. I could feel my heart beat on my throat, sweat on my hands and most definitely my thoughts were so loud.

I was nervous as fuck it felt so weird. I mean why was I nervous. We didn't even know each other... but deep inside I wished to know her and for her to text me ba....

I didn't even have to finish what I was thinking in my head, my phone vibrated and I got a message notification on i*******m. Ahhh.. at least she doesn't think I'm annoying. At least she responded.

I opened my messages as calm as I could.... and oh boy I smiled when I saw what she said.

"Hey... maaan that was so close... it's actually Katharina... not Katherine..."

I was truly smiling like an idiot.. and then she started typing again.

So I waited...

"Oh and hey I want to apologize for commenting a lot.. I'm sure you think I'm probably annoying by now... really sorry..."

I fucken laughed, was she for real? Her? Annoying me? God she was adorable..

I quickly texted back:

"What? You annoying me? Impossible, you just made me feel really good about myself.. why would you think you're annoying. I loved and still love reading your comments. I mean it's good to have someone appreciate my dancing."

She quickly typed back and I smiled.

"Good to know I'm not that annoying, you'll probably get tired of me I swear...but for now since I'm not annoying you, I'll keep on talking..."

Then again I ran out of shit to say, I couldn't keep on talking about her not annoying I'd end up being the annoying one and deep down I did not want that.

So I changed the topic:

"So... where are you from Katharina...? Oh God is it weird that I said your name out loud in a Russian accent..? Are you from Russia?"

Then I waited as she typed back...

"Oh God...๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I can't stop laughing at that. You're sooooooo funny.. umh no unfortunately I'm not from Russia... I'm from Germany... born and raised there... you?"

She thought I was beautiful and funny...๐Ÿ˜Š Oh God.. could she be any cooler..?

"South Africa... born and raised with the monkeys..."

After sending that I thought I was an idiot.. I mean what if she runs away. What if she actually thinks I'm telling the truth and runs for her life thinking I'm a creep?

Okay I was basically overreacting and it got to me how I didn't know what she was thinking or how long she'd take to respond...

My phone vibrated..

I smiled and opened the message..

"๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Ohh God please stop.. my stomach hurts like hell... Well I sorta Just imagined a kid version of you kissing a monkey... cute.. freaken cute I tell you."

My face was burning at least I was making her smile like she did me.

"I'm glad you're laughing. Thought you'd think I'm crazy..."

She quickly responded:

"I don't think you can go crazy... unless a Chris Brown song comes on.. then God your body would go crazy... that I know."

I smiled like an idiot and my phone vibrated.. a text from my best friend.

Bestie: Emergency 101... I fucken need you dude.. log in in w******p....

I bit the inside of my cheek and debated whether or not to leave I*******m. I mean it was crazy how this app was was finishing my data and right now I gave no care, I just wanted to keep talking to her.

I opened my w******p message and responded to my best friend.

ME: What ass? What's going on?

Then I logged out.

I went to I*******m.. I strangely didn't want this to end... texting her was fun.. and I had no idea how to tell her I want her numbers but indirectly. I didn't have the liver to say "I want your numbers.." I was too big of a chicken to do that...

I sighed and slowly typed:

"Unmm... hey Kathy, I... I*******m kinda sucks, so do you like have messenger or W******p where I can text you better than now..."

I looked at the text debating internally whether or not to do this. What would we talk about? We fucken barely knew each other... God. Why would she wanna text me more?

A knock on my door startled me making me press "send" on my phone

"Shit..." I cursed under my breath and turned, "daddy?"

"Fill those forms.. I'll go submit them tomorrow when I go to work...."

I sighed and put my phone down, "yes dad.."

Then like a good girl that I was, I took out the envelope and filled it in. I put the documents that were needed and then put everything back in there with a paper that's written


Then I went back on my phone.. I went straight to i*******m regardless of the 09 w******p notifications I had from my best friend..

She responded and the moment I saw numbers and a "text me on w******p" text.. I went insane. She fucken gave me her numbers? I mean I didn't have to dig deeper than that. Wow okay.. So I immediately saved her numbers and went to w******p to respond to her i*******m message...

ME: I swear I*******m really sucks.. by the way thank you for your numbers.. now I can chat well with you... and even probably see you.

Then I went to check my besties' w******p messages..

Bestie: So Paul just called this a date.. and I'm kinda freaking out..

Bestie: I want to know what to say dude..

Bestie: fuck Precious... I'm tooo nervous to go on a date with him alone... I know the old him not the new him...

Bestie: Precious where the fuck are you? I need you here and you're busy being an ass..

Bestie: okay you're not an ass, I'm just freaking out...๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ and I need you and you are not here..

Bestie: you know what? It's fucken over. You are not my bestie anymore...

Bestie: okay Precious I need you. Pleaseeee come back. I agreed to the date... but I have a suggestion.. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜š

Bestie: fuck you.... ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Bestie: I'm best friendless.. that's me๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜‘

I laughed at all the shit she wrote then responded..

Me: Well, Paul has game.. stop being an idiot ... ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ anyways you can dump them all bitch.. but not me, I'm your life.... yippie my bestie has a date๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜›๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‡๐ŸŽ†.... so what suggestion did you have in mind?

Then I went back to talking to Katharina..

We talked a lot and literally about nothing.. well she told me she'd like to visit Africa once and I told her that I can always be her tour guide... I'd show her a few interesting places here.

The bond was there and it was amazing and what I loved most about us, was that I wasn't even lying about myself. I just openly told her the truth about myself even though I had no idea if there was a man or a creep on the other side.

around 11pm I then thought about checking her picture since I stupidly had no idea what she still looked like. I mean I opened her w******p profile picture but she was facing away from the camera..

So I gathered so much strength to type..

ME: Hey Kathy... mind sending me a picture of you? ๐Ÿ™ˆ

KATHY๐Ÿ’ฏโค๐ŸŒˆ: a unicorn one?

I smiled, she wasn't saying no..

ME: as long as I'll see your face...

Kathy sent you a picture..

I opened it and almost dropped my phone. Okay maybe I'm exaggerating a bit but fuck if you were me you would too.. she was wearing a pink and white onesy, yes pink and white believe me, it had that unicorn horn on the head.. she was smiling a bit and that showed her on dimple on her left cheek...her sky blue eyes... God I felt like I was taken to another planet when I connected my eyes with hers.. her long black hair showed on the sides. She was fucken beautiful... I looked at the picture a bit closely and sighed... did people this beautiful fucken exist?

She texted again.

KATHY๐Ÿ’ฏโค๐ŸŒˆ: I really hope you don't get scared away. That is what's supposed to be my "scare you away picture.." and I am so surprised you didn't check my pictures on i*******m since I did you.

God.. I was lost for words... she was breathtaking.

I quickly reaponded..

ME: oh fuuuuuck.. sorry.. You're beautiful. God you're beautiful Katharina.

KATHY๐Ÿ’ฏโค๐ŸŒˆ: I.. well thank you..haha that's crazy but thank you.

We then talked about a few things... and about each other. I told her about my annoying little brother and she told me about her annoying bother and amazing sister. She was 19, her brother 18 and her sister 15..

It was fun talking to her I was shook when I found that the time was 1am..


let's sleep...we will talk tomorrow okay.. thank you for tonight it was amazing talking to you...โค๐Ÿ˜˜

I had no idea what was happening in my head but I didn't want to stop. It was amazing to talk with her. She was amazing.


The following day started the same at others. Getting my family ready and sending them off. I trully was happy that daddy decided to take the forms wherever they were wanted.

I'd have more time to myself.. and probably a cute little birdy from Germany.

So my bestie and I were supposed to meet after my class today..

I left a morning message for Kathy and left for school.

I found myself looking at Layla but I'd look away when she was about to look at me. I had no idea why she suddenly looked interesting or whatever.. but I couldn't stop myself.

"Hey babe..." Chris whispered and I jumped, "Chris.. don't sneak up on me like that.."

"I'm sorry. How are you...?"

"I'm okay..thanks.. you?"

"I'd be good if you could..."

"Chris mind if I steal my best friend..."

Godness.. I have never been sooo happy to actually see someone like I was when Julia pitched. I wasn't ready to turn him down ...again.. it was tiring but my bestie showing up like this was a blessing. A sign from God that I shouldn't even be talking about Chris in a relationship way. I hugged her, "I love you so much.. I missed you.."

She pulled away and looked at me confused, "you saw me yesterday.."

I took her hand in mine and pulled her away, "the fuck... I forgive you for the stunt you pulled... so what suggestion did you have in mind?"

Last night she left me hanging when I asked what she was going to suggest.

My phone vibrated a number of times I couldn't ignore it..

A smile formed on My face when I saw who they were from..

KATHY๐Ÿ’ฏโค๐ŸŒˆ: oh God I had one of the most beautiful dreams ever... and you was there cutely watching me.

KATHY๐Ÿ’ฏโค๐ŸŒˆ: morning beautiful human.. I hope you also slept like me.

God I was blushing. She dreamt about me? This girl..

I typed...

ME: God if you could see my face right now.. you'd...

"Babeeeeee. Like I was saying... I need you there with me... please.." my best friend said pushing me with her shoulder to get my attention...

I smiled on my phone and continued typing.

ME: God if you could see my face right now.. you'd think I'm getting sick. Stop making me blush giiiiiirl...

Then I sent it...and she typed back immediately... I was smiling like crazy...

"Precious.. please say yes.. say yes to coming with me.. I can't do this alone... please.."

I had no idea what she was talking about but I knew she wasn't going to let this be. So I sighed, "okay babe.. I'll come..."

She jumped and pulled me into a hug... "you are the best.. I'll go tell Chris that you said yes to our double date.. I can't wait..."


Fuck wait.. She said double what with whoooo?

"Julia... wait..."

"He'll be happy to know you said yes to this..."

"Fuck...." I said and my phone vibrated...

I checked it out.

KATHY๐Ÿ’ฏโค๐ŸŒˆ: I bet you are over beautiful when you blush.. if that makes sense.. but it does in my head.

I sighed....

"the fuck did I get myself into!"
