"Can we order soju too?" I ask directly ask because I suddenly crave for it.
Vaughn looks at me in disbelief. He stopped midway from putting the meats on the griller.
"Drinking alcohol in the middle of the day?" He slowly asked.
I laughed a little with his cute reaction. I don’t really drink much without Tess and it does really happen so rare. I felt like I just wanna drink with Vaughn and Skylar thingy set up, and also about Skylar’s sudden avoidance towards me. I know, I guess yesterday doesn’t really matter with Skylar, but it somehow made me hurt a little bit.
"Do you drink often?" Vaughn said as he managed to get the ordered soju's and opened up the bottle. I took my shot glass and he gladly poured some on mine.
I drank it all in one gulp and said, "No."
I heard him chuckled and said, "LMAO, no huh."
I just let it be.
"I don't, I guess you are a better drinker than me." I said humbly.
"Yes, I have high alco
Arghh! I’ll never drink alcohol again on weekdays. Wrong move Avis. Your stupidity nowadays is hilarious that someday you'll die because of it, Avis! I just finished my afternoon class and I badly need to library because I have a lot of school works to finish today since I’m half day absent yesterday. I should’ve been on my way to home now, but I think I’m gonna overtime because of the stupidity I did yesterday. I also haven’t called or talked to Tess about her plans tomorrow Saturday about her birthday plans. I didn’t also have the chance to eat lunch earlier. I’m hungry, I think I’m gonna cry. I entered my library card and walk over to Ms. Bailey. “Good afternoon!” I said, showing her my most beautiful smile. Please, don’t remember it! Please! Please! “Where’s the book?” she said then remove her gaze on mine and focus on organizing the books on her desk. “I forgot it.
"Oh, Skylar..." I slowly said as I saw him. He looks at me with something within his eyes and I can feel goose bumps for no reason. He pulled the chair next to me and sat. I just remained silent and quickly wipe off my tears. "I'll just give this back to you tomorrow," I said, pertaining to his handkerchief. "Tough day?" He asked quietly. I just nodded to him. I closed my eyes for a second because I just realized that he always caught me always in my pathetic state, just why?! And why was he here? Didn't he keep on avoiding me since the beach day? "What makes you come here?" I asked with a low voice. I started to open again the books and proceed to continue my work. "You," he said. I abruptly stopped writing when I heard what he said. My heart skipped a bit and tried to recall if I did hear it correctly. I look at him and I could see him trying to scan some of my paper works that are neatly stocked on th
I’m finally done! FINALLY! I lean on the back of my seat and stretch my arms widely. I noticed that Skylar is still here on my side, sitting, and he is quietly sleeping resting head on the top of the table. I thought he gone home. I checked my phone to check the time. It’s already 10 PM. Did he actually wait for me? Wow… he is seriously not his usual self tonight. I felt a little happy and contended that he is now talking to me, but still anxious on why he suddenly avid me for past few days. Should I ask him later? I lean closer to him, focusing my eyes on every detail in his face. Why does he look so perfect? He looks so peaceful and like an angel when he is sleeping. I rest my head on the table while still staring at him. This is the longest time I’d stare at him. I move my hand closer to him as I touch his hair that falls in his face. The features of his, I’ll memorize it. His eye lashes that is
I both looked at Vaughn and Skylar, all of them looked good and dashing tonight. "All right! So..shall we go inside?" I both asked them because the air kinda feel intense for some reason. I was about to turn my back when a rushing person suddenly jumps at me and clanged it's full body to my neck. Of course, it's Tess. Because I can't fully grasp the sudden situation, it resulted for me to have an out of balance and fall to the ground, of course, with Tess on top of me. "Aviiiiiis! My wifeeeeey!" She hugs me tightly after we got up. "Can you please inform me that you are gonna do that? I nearly had a heart attack. “I said to Tess and she laughs. "I'm sorry, I thought the boys will be there to catch you," she smiled to me and intensely takes a mad stare at both Vaughn and Skylar. "Kidding! Come on in, guys!" She said to boys and she proceeds to link her arms to me, resulting for me to be dragged towards inside the house. Both Vaughn and
After the incident, I guided Avis to a private room to have her time. I led her to a sofa while the tears are still running down on her cheeks. She sat down. I can hear her sobs, I know that she is trying to suppress it but she can't. I sighed and hug Avis tightly, I can understand what she's feeling and I felt so sad and angry for what is happening now. I took some water from the pitcher and poured a glass of water to her. I gave it to her and she reached it, her hands are shaking. I sighed multiple times seeing Avis in this state. It somehow also makes me sad for her. She was still shaking and looks so confused but she's trying to conceal it. Avis don't deserve this, she deserves the best but why is she receiving shits like this? "Try to rest, Avis. Don’t worry, I will protect you here." I pat her head and wipe those tears from her cheeks. She nodded and tried to lie down on the sofa. I fixed the cushions on her side and fixe
“Hey, Sunflower.” Dad called me, but I can’t seem to get my mind out of Skylar, Vaughn, Penny, the party…and the balance. I felt like I dreamed a weird one again last night, when I fell asleep with Vaughn on my side. The word that has been repeating in my dream is ‘balance’. I don’t get it. I’m so confused. And grandma was there in my dream again. “Sometimes dreams are warnings.” Words of Ms. Bailey whispered in my head. WHAT THE HELL! Why are this all problems adding up together?! I played the bacon in front of me as I remember Penny’s words and it is hitting me like steak knives deep in my heart. So, Skylar and Penny is a thing. Then, why did Skylar do something like that? Why does he make me fall hard to him that I can’t ever get out?! I would be probably happy when the news was Skylar and Vaughn is a thing, not Penny and Skylar. I sigh. This is giving me a headache. Glad, it’s Sunday and I do
I hate Monday’s. It’s the worst day of the week.I got up from bed and collected the papers I’ve left last night while printing it. Being a History major is hard yet exciting and I love it so much. I won’t give this up over mom’s plan for me in her company.I have a presentation later at Mr. Velenzuela’s subject. One of our terror prof, but he teaches well so it’s all good.***I arrived at school 15 minutes earlier before my class starts, so I’ll have time to prepare my presentation.“Hey, Lei,” I called our president in an organization where I joined at. We are also block mates in this subject, she majors in History too. “Can you help me set this up?” ask and points at the projector and my laptop. She went to me and I focused my attention on the papers I’ve printed. I’m gonna hand it out to my prof before I start the presentation.“It’s connected now, you can try it.” Lei look at me and smiled. “Thank you!” I tap her back to show my gratitude.The room is already getting fill up by
I can feel my heart beating rapidly and unusually fast. I am currently in front of the stairs that will lead to the rooftop. It was still 5:50 pm but I don't know why I was early but I was also nervous to come inside. Skylar was so unusual these days and his actions make me either somehow hope for something or get mad. Those past moments make me actually hope for something, that being with him might be possible, but it all got discarded once i heard penny that I was ruining their relationship. Hearing it made me realize how pathetic I could be, it makes me feel embarrassed and somehow annoyed. I'm embarrassed of how I clung to that possibility, and also annoyed to myself. But now, seeing that note, it made me hope a little but I'm trying my best not to, he has a girlfriend, I couldn't be more pathetic than I was. “Stop it, Avis.” I whispered to myself and did a deep sigh. I looked up at the stairs in front of
