"Babe, where are you going to?" A voice calls, I involuntarily turn to look at the person. It's Josephine, my sister stretching her hands, sitting on the bed.
Her black hair all scattered around her head, her brown eyes all wet, her long nails scratching her head as she stretches again then she yawns.
"Well it's non of your business my big sister" I tell her putting lipstick on my lips.
My black eyes blinking time and time,I put some white powder on my face.
The black trouser I am wearing not really comfortable and the white off shoulder shirt also not comfortable. It's winter and I will need a really thick cloth,this cloth is too light.
"Josie,this cloth I'm wearing, do you think it's good cause I do not like it,I do not feel so comfortable with it" I tell her to be sure of what her opinion of the cloth will be.
"No,it looks good on you,my little sis" she tells me which makes me to not believe her.
"Whatever you say is the opposite so,I'm not going to wear this dumb cloth" I tell her already going to the wardrobe.
"Come on,you know this cloth is the perfect for you Babe" Josie tells me then stands up from the bed then walks up to me.
"Do not change it please" she tells me as I sigh.
"No,I'll wear what I want to wear, and it is winter I do not want freeze, get it"
Josie sighs then goes back to the bed and lays down,she is older than me with one year but sometimes it seems like I'm older than her cause I act more matured than her.
I go and get dressed then I come out wearing a thick blue jean trouser and a thick white long sleeve shirt that has an 'I LOVE YOU' written on it then I put a thick hairy jacket on my body to try reduce the cold.
"Now,how do I look Josie?" I ask Josie who is looking at me surprised.
"Wow,you look cute" she tells me as I smile and go to hug her.
"Where are you going?" She asks me sitting down on the bed.
"And at this time" she tells me not looking at the time.
"What's the time?" I ask her like an adult as she faces the wall clock and stands up in surprise.
"What! It's eleven forty two,why did my alarm not wake me up? Why are curtains down? Why did you not wake me up?" She asks me who is just looking for my shoes.
"What are you looking for?" She asks me noticing that I'm looking for something.
"My shoe" I tell her immediately.
"And here it is" I pick a white sneakers that my mom bought for me when I was eleven a day before she died now I'm twenty two.
"Why are you wearing that shoe? Where are you going to?" Josie asks me because that is my most special shoe and I wear it when I'm going to somewhere important, since we are not rich so I do not wear any good shoes,this is my favorite shoe.
"No where" I reply her "just for a stroll,wanna go with me?" I ask her smiling.
"No,and what would you like to have when you get back from uhm strolling?" Josie asks me as I just smile.
"Oh,you are the best" I tell her as I carry my dark blue bag from a chair.
"What would you like to eat?" She asks me again.
"Oh sorry,uhm maybe spaghetti" I reply her smiling as I kiss her on her cheek.
"I should take my leave" I tell her.
"Wait" Josie's voice stops me as I turn to look at her.
"What?" I ask her as she goes to a drawer and drags it out and takes a little box out of it.
"What is that?" I ask her as she walks close to me facing the box.
"This, this is a box" she tells me as I sigh.
"Oh a box I did not know that" I tell her looking serious.
"I am not joking" she tells me looking at me serious.
"Neither am I joking,I know it's a box, what is in it?that's what I was asking for"
"Well why did you not say so?" She pauses then faces the box again.
"Before Dad died,he gave me this" she pauses then faces me "you know dad died before mom, mom died two days after Dad died"
"I know" I tell her almost crying.
"Dad gave me this and he said I should give you when you are twenty years old" she tells me as she cleans a drop of tears in her eyes with her wrist.
"Then why did you not give me when I was twenty?" I ask her calmly knowing how she felt.
"Because I love it so much and this is the only memory I have of dad and since you do not have any memory of dad I think you can have it" she tells me facing back so I would not know she's crying but I already know.
"Don't cry. Now, here's what you will do,you can keep the watch,I do not need it,well I want it but you want it more than I want it" I tell her smiling a little as I kiss her cheek again,we love each other a lot and I can't bare to see her cry and u also thinks she is the same.
"Now can I go stroll out cry baby"
"Well I think I'm being selfish,you can have the watch" Josie tells me as she gives me the watch but I do not collect it from her.
"No you can have it seriously you can have it,I'm not feeling sad or anything,you can have it" I tell her as she smiles crying.
"Thank you,you're the best,I love you" she hugs me.
"I should be going really" I tell Josie with a serious look as she looks at me."Hmm" she sits on the bed and puts her hand on her chin."Where are you going?" She pauses then she puts her two hands on the bed causing her to lye flat on the bed,she continues"Are you going to meet Clement?" Clement Davis is my male best friend, he is twenty five years,he use three years to senior me,Josie always tease me that we are dating but I know I am not dating him,we are just friends,I roll my eyes."It seems so,oh.....,so he has proposed to you,when? Why did you not tell me?" She asks me as I go sit down close to her."You know what,I do not love him,and if you do notbelieve me and you think I am going to his place then you can follow me,let's go together""I would not want to go and distract you love birds,besides I already have my boyfriend""Who?" I ask her smiling.<
"What happened?" I ask Josie really afraid as I walk to her front."Anna" Josie sits on the ground as I try to grab her then I knee down holding her face with my hands."Josie,what happened to Anna?" I see Josie's phone as I call Anna's number but she does not answer."Josie tell me what happened right now" I tell Josie in a commanding tone as she rubs her right hand against her face to clear her tears then I stand up."Babe,Anna just lost her dad"I fall on the floor landing on my butt."Who died?" I ask her again to be sure that that's what happened. Hank was Anna's father and he took care of her after the death of her mother,even though she never loved him because she always thought he was the one who killed her mother even though he was indirectly the one.Hank always beat his wife until oneday,she died and when they took him to court, he won and I am sure he has repented already but she does not believe,Josie was the one who told
"I should take my leave""OK,bye,but come later soon""OK" I carry my bag and walk out of his house."I wonder where Josie would be" I tell myself.*****I knock at the door of my house but I get no response. I knock again and still no response which makes me annoyed as I carry a stone and use it to knock the door then Josie opens it."Josie why didn't you open it the first time I knocked?" I ask her walking inside the house as she closes the door and follows me then I drop my bag on the bed and lie on the bed."Where were you?" She asks me as I sit down on the bed looking at her."Where were you?" She asks me again looking angry."I was with Clemy, any problem with that?""Yes,why would you not tell me? Do you know how worried I was?" She pauses then goes to the kitchen connected to our parlor as she takes a cup and a jug full of water,
***** I open my eyes, already awake as I see Babe all dressed."Oh, you're awake now." Babe tells me. I ignore her presence."Hey,what's wrong with you?" She asks me with a commanding tone but I do not care as she continues."You don't want to forgive me huh then I won't forgive you, get it?" She carries her pink bag which is the only bag she has."Where are you going?" I ask her quickly before she went out of the house."None of your business" she replies me and walks out of the house.***** What does she take me for? Does she think I'm stupid? Does she think I can't fall in love? Does she think she's the only one that can fall in love? I think I should go to Anna's place,she would be able to help me meet Kelvin I should call Babe and tell her.I pick my phone from the chair I was sitting on and dial Babe's number and to my surprise she answer the call."Hello" Babe's voice rings in my ear.<
"Morning sleepy beautiful" a voice wakes me up as I smile knowing it's Babe."Babe,leave me alone, don't wake me up" I tell her putting a pillow on my head."Hey,I'm not Babe" the voice tells me as I remove the pillow from my head shocked then I see Anna."Oh,hi Anna" I lie on the bed again then sigh."Missing Babe?" Anna asks me as I don't respond. I am missing her but I will not go back to that house until Babe apologizes to me till I'm satisfied."Are you?" Anna asks me again reminding me of the question she asked."No" I lie to her as I stand up from the bed chewing my lips,that's how I do when I'm lying chew my lips."You're lying" Anna tells me,she already knows,her and Babe always know when I'm lying."No I'm not" I try to lie again as she faces me."Come on,you can't lie to me" she tells me."OK,you caught me but I'm not going back there until she comes and apologize to me" I fold my hands together and rest it on my
"Let me sing a song for you" Clemy takes a guitar from the back of his chair."Do you keep guitars there?" I ask him confused as she shakes his head."No,can I start singing?" He asks as I nod."Look at beautiful eyes,they're so magical and beautiful eyes" he starts with his beautiful voice as I smile then he continues"When I look at your eyes I see the beauty there,when I look at your eyes I get lost in there,I can see your beautiful eyes making me fall for you. I think I've fallen for them,oh your beautiful eyes are all I see when I look you,I think ——" he stops then smiles."I think I should stop there" he pauses facing his wristwatch then continues facing me"I mean, it's late already, it's 7:40 pm,when do you want to go if not now?" He stands up as I face the wall clock."Oh my gosh,it's 7:40" I tell him almost shouting."I'll drop you home" he looks at me with so much concern in his eyes"so you won't have an accident, it's getti
"Hello Clemy, what happened? Why aren't you talking to me?" I ask Kelvin still on the phone.I hang up.I run to my room and carry my bag on the bed and run out of the house."Cab!." I cry after seeing a cab making mereally afraid for Clemy then it stops in front of me causing me to enter it and he drives away."Drive faster!." I shout at the driver looking at my phone and trying Clemy's number but it's switched off."Please Madam it's illegal to drive very fast and crazy." He warns me."Hey,I did not say you should drive recklessly, I only said you should drive quickly you're the one who thought in your mind that you want to drive recklessly so don't blame me." I warn the driver as he continues driving shivering.The cab stops at Clemy's place causing me to run out of the cab so I can get there as quick as possible. I pay the cab man money then he drives away.I knock at the do
"No, Anna just don't joke for I'm not joking." I sniff."Are you crying?." She asks me making me realize I was too loud when I sniff in even though I was crying."No,I'm not." I lie to her clearing a drop of tears already on my left cheek." Let's forget about that and focus on the future,well let me tell you why I called you.""Why'd you call me?." Anna asks."Well I tried Josie's number but she didn't answer my call so I think I would like to come to your house." I scratch my neck with my long fingernails."With, you're missing Josie right?." She asks me as I smile but I'm sure she won't know."Oh yes I miss her,I can't do without my big sister,she's my best friend and I'd like to talk to her,it's important." I sigh then continues."I just hope after
