I hastily followed Belinda out. She was really angry.
I wonder why her and Derek are always like that
I followed her to the living room. Her mother was there talking with a friend
Belinda: good evening mom. Good evening Ms Jessica
Ms Jessica : how are you doing my dear
Belinda: I’m fine.
She faked a smile and turned to move towards the stairs.
I bowed to the two women and followed her.
I guess her mother noticed she was not in a good mood.
Lady Abbie : Belinda
Bel : yes mom
Lady Abbie : are you okay? You look pissed off
Bel released her face from a frown to a cool smile.
Bel: it’s fine mom. I’m OK, just tired
Ms Jessica : then go and rest. You should go to bed
Belinda smiled and bowed then began to move.
I did the same
It seems these guys have respect a lot. Maybe it’s as a result of their father’s strictness.
We got to her room quickly because she was just walking too fast and swiftly
Wait, don’t you wonder why I don’t have problems with walking.
Mother helped me out
She made my legs steady.
When we got to Bel’s room, she shouted
Me: whoah, are you okay
Bel: no I’m not
Me : then why did you lie to your mother that you were just tired
Bel: oh that isn’t a lie. That’s no damn lie
I’m sick and tired of Derek and his ways. I’m tired of them all
She fell on her bed and ran her fingers into her hair.
I smiled and moved to the fridge. She’ll need something cold to cool her down. Something creamy with banana flavor.
I didn’t search for long before I found a chilled banana flavored yoghurt.
Her fridge is filled with what she likes.
Her brought it out and handed it over to her.
Bel : oh thanks. I really need this
She gulped it down and asked me to bring another one.
What a girl
I brought another one and she just sipped on this one.
My eyes were closing
Me : will I do anything for you again?
Bel: no thank you. Good night but don’t do anything for Derek. Don’t even push him out of the way if something wants to fall on him, let Audrey do it
I laughed and she smiled.
I said my good night and sluggishly went to my room, turned on the shower and refreshed myself then fell on my bed with just my towel.
I slept off
I checked the time, 9:57pm. I was just chatting with my best friend that I forgot where I was and who I was with. I looked beside me, Audrey was fast asleep.
I suddenly remembered Blue and her arm.
I smiled, Audrey had told me what actually happened.
I didn’t care about the wine, I just want Blue to get healed up fast.
I knew the injury would be really painful.
I got up, arranged my things into the tray and tapped Audrey.
She gently woke up and I moved her hair from her face. I guess she was shocked to see it was me.
Audrey: uhmm, sir sorry I fell asleep
Me : get the tray, let go. It’s late
She stood up and took the tray then we went inside.
She dropped the things in their rightful place while I went to my room.
I got inside and locked the door.
Went to sit on my bed when I saw a pearly bracelet on my bed, right where Blue sat.
I think I’ve seen this bracelet with her before. She doesn’t always wear it.
I took it and smiled as I was rolling it in my fingers.
Then something got my attention, I examined it well and gasped
Me: these are real pearls not customised ones. Jeez how did she get this bracelet.
Plenty things ran through my mind
Was she a thief?
Or did someone give this to her?
Or did she find it on the floor?
I threw away that first thought, if it was Audrey I would have believed it but this was Blue.
Or maybe it’s not hers but for Belinda and she was holding it.
I kept the bracelet beside my bedside table and turned off the lights.
I still didn’t sleep. I kept thinking about blue’s face.
She had the prettiest smile
She’s also really beautiful when she’s crying because her eyes sparkle especially in the light.
I wonder the real color of her hair.
I’m sure it will suit her
And her lips, looks kissable
Jeeez, why I’m I thinking to that direction
Me : playboy…… I better mind myself. I won’t take a step towards Blue.
I smiled and slept off
Ah morning already….
The light from my window passing through the spaces between my curtains smiled on my face.
I stood up and stretched out.
I laid back and looked up to the white ceiling blinking my eyes.
My hands were folded on my tummy.
Then I remembered my mother
Good morning mother…
How are you doing today
Are you up already
I hope you’re not being stressed out too much
I’ll try to call you today using the telephone here
I just hope you go to work today so you can pick up
I looked to the side, sat up and lifted up the second pillow
It’s not here
I hastily checked the second pillow
Not here either
I took a deep breath and got off the bed
Searched the bed thoroughly
I was scared, really scared
I searched the room. Everywhere I keep things and even where I don’t keep them.
I began to cry, my bracelet
It contained the real me
My mermaid self was there.
It reminded me of mother
It reminded me of the ocean
It reminded me of Neptune City
It reminded me of Rainbow
Oh please Rainbow
If you can make me see the bracelet
I’ll be so happy
After searching for long and didn’t see it, I was so frustrated.
I checked the time, jeez 8:36am
And Audrey didn’t come to call me
I tiredly went outside, first to Belinda’s room. She wasn’t there
I wanted knocking on Derek’s door then I remembered Bel’s warning .
I went down to the kitchen and saw Audrey there
Audrey : oh come on, do u have to come down now. Now that I want to eat most of the food?
I sat down and looked out the balcony
Audrey : hey are you okay, you don’t look good. Did you just wake up?
I shaked my head in the negative.
Then I remembered, I hadn’t even showered or brushed or wear my uniform.
I sighed and told her that she could have my breakfast then I left. She looked surprised and worried. But didn’t say anything
I went inside and refreshed.
I didn’t want to do anything
I laid on my bed
I don’t know how long I stayed there but I heard a knock
I gently stood up and opened up
Me : Belinda
Bel: Blue beauty
This siblings are killing me
Me: Bel beauty
Bel: I’m so happy to have the same starting letter with you. I mean our names, the letter B starts it
Me: oh yeah. It’s really nice. I like it
Bel: can I come in
Me: please do
She came inside and walked round
Bel: I haven’t entered here before
I guess the rooms are so much she hasnt entered them all.
If I was in her shoes, I’ll explore all the rooms
She sat down on my bed and I sat beside her
Bel: do you have a boyfriend
Me: huh, me. No I never had one
Bel: me too. My family wouldn’t hear of it, just because I’m 17 and not exposed. But Derek has a girlfriend, sorry I mean girlfriends. He’s a playboy. But he’s concentrated on one now, Alice I hate her
She laid down and played with her fingers
Bel: she’s too proud and believes only in her self. I secretly wish Derek could use her and dump her like he does to other girls.
Me: hahaha, I think Derek loves you so much that he doesn’t want you to be treated the way he treats other girls
Bel: yeah, I really love Derek. Though we are enemies must of the times. But he knows how to cooperate with me against our parents
I really wonder what it feels like to have a sibling
Bel: can we be friends Blue
My eyes widened
Me : you want us to be friends
Me: okay, we’re friends
She raised her hand for a high five.
It reminded me of Rainbow and Jace.
I wonder how Jace is now
Bel: you know Derek is only cool with Adrian, he’s best friend. Adrian is really really in love with the….
The door opened and Derek stood there
It frightened me
Bel: Derek you should knock. Maybe we were doing some girl stuff here now, you would have seen it all.
Derek : oh sorry
He closed the door
Me: huh, is he going back
Then we heard a knock.
Belinda stood up and opened it, Derek
Me: jeez. He went back to knock
Derek : can I please see Blue
Bel: no way. She’s my maid and you’re not permitted to see her at all. Now leave
Derek : I just wanted to give her this
He lifted up my pearl bracelet
Me: My bracelet
I ran off from the bed and went to the door.
Me: Derek where did you see it. I thought I lost it
He smiled and opened my palm and placed it in.
Derek : Tataaa (goodbye)
He left with his hands in his pocket but I could see he was grinning from ear to ear
Bel: is that yours.
Me: yes it’s from my mother
I was so very happy
If not that Bel was there, I would have been jumping and shouting already.
I couldn’t contain my joy as I fiddled with it.
Bel: that reminds me Blue. Follow me, I have tons of things to give to you
Huh, give to me.
She pulled me as she ran to her room and took me to her second closet.
Yes, she has two huge closets.
She swinged it open and my eyes saw stuffs with its color
Everything there was Blue color.
So many things, bed covers, teddy bears, clothes, shoes, curtains.
In fact any girly stuff that you could ever think of, just color it blue.
I loved them all.
I’m in love with the blue color
Belinda: you can have them all, they’re all yours
Me: what, mine. Jeez
I couldn’t believe it
All these rich stuff
I couldn’t believe it
I’m so happy
