Its been three days since Frank told me all that transpired. And there I was, sulking on my bed with spoonfuls of icecream and series after series of wildflower.
If you'd asked me why I was sulking then, I'm sure I wouldn't have had an answer because despite all, I should feel relieved and a bit happy, but I wasn't.
Instead I was wallowing in my own sweat and freezing my heart over icecream. It was at this moment that I heard a knock on my door.
"Who goes? I yelled.PS: That's a slang.
"Shut the hell up and open this damn pile of wood!" Tenda screeched while she pounded incessantly on the door.
This made me groan and mutter cursewords under my breath as I stalked over and unlocked it.
"Get out," I muttered in irritation when I realized she wasn't the only one, as she was surrounded by the bunch of goons
Joanna's POV"Holy-""Oh my-""Fvck!""Wow!" They all exclaimed at the same time, except Tenda who stood, grinning like a proud mom as she watched their reactions."I look beautiful I know." I smiled, while I twirled stylishly."No offense to Frank but if you were mine I would so do you." Ifeanyi groaned."Who said he hasn't? I questioned with a smirk."Wooo!" Blake exclaimed in a laugh while Tony frowned."That's my girl!" Tenda spoke, before giving me a high five."Oh GOD" Harmony gagged, as his face slightly turned green."My lil sister is not so little anymore," Blake voiced out with a sniff.Tony just facepalmed at this while Ifeanyi held a proud grin on his face and muttered a "That's why he's my cousin, we get things done""Okay that's enough dirty t
Joanna's POV"So," Ifeanyi cleared his throught before he continued with an uneasy smile. "Lets play spin the bottle""Of course, why didn't we remember on time," Tony blurted after which they all chorused "Yeah, why""Sure," Tenda and I replied as we exchanged a look."Let me get the bottle," Harmony suggested hastily, and scrambled up, like his pants were on fire."Hey!" Ifeanyi exclaimed. "Don't go moving around, its my house!""And so? He smirked in return. "I'm just getting the damn bottle""But you will my waste wine! I don't have an empty bottle," Ifeanyi cried, while he pouted like a baby."I won't!" Harmony yelled, from the kitchen."If you waste any wine, I swear I will roast you," Ifeanyi threatened, about to go meet him, but unfortunately Harmony strolled out, imme
Joanna's POVIt was a saturday morning. I groaned and stood up, before I stretched, making an animalistic noise in the process, due to that sweet feeling one gets when you hear your bones crack and stretch evenly."Joanna! Get up and clean up, its saturday!" I heard Dad call from downstairs."Dad am up!" I called back, after which I moved around as if in a daze and went to the bathroom, where I did my business.Still in a daze after that, I decided to pull my asleep brain together so it could function, and splashed some water on my face, as I knew Dad wouldn't take it likely with me, if he entered my room in a few minutes, and saw how messy it was, or me, sleeping, even though it was still 7 am.How I woke up that early by myself, was a shock to me, especially after the crazy night we all had.Wait, am supposed to be nursing a hangover right now, or di
Frank's POV (cont.d)"I know, but its been years dude." He scoffed, "Don't you think its time we give her hints, like the way Harmo---" Ifeanyi stopped short as he realized what he had just said."The way Harmony what? So it was a plan!" I exclaimed in shock."Kind of," He spoke. "We knew you wouldn't be too kin on it, so we somehow decided it""We, as in." I glared."As in, Tony, Blake, Dora." He blurted, listing them off his fingers."Wait, Blake agreed to this? Oh shit." I groaned. "Does Elvis know?"Nope, only the three of us," He answered."How could Blake agree, Elvis is his close friend and Ana is Elvis's sister, shi--" I rambled, but he cut me off."Your sister is in on it too," He added."Fahvour? I questioned, shock imprinted on my face."This is so risky, I was s
Joanna's POV"Well you were friends with all of them. The gang, as you usually call your little group. You guys were inseparable in junior primary school," Dad started."You all did things together, ate together, did homeworks together, even sleepovers, you did it all." He chuckled, a far away look in his eyes. "You were quite the troublemakers, in a good way though, even Frank was your bestfriend before Harmony"I choked at this and questioned "Francis? Bestfriend?"See? You still call him that name. Why do you think you don't feel cormfortable calling him Frank to his face like we all do? Elvis asked, to which I shrugged, still clueless."Like I was saying, you and Frank were bestfriends, some would say little lovebirds even." Dad smiled. "You both were more inseparable than others. Even when others were there, the both of you always did things to
Frank's POV"Am a classic man, oh baby am a classic man," I sang while I spinned round on my heel to the beat."What has got you so happy this hot afternoon and why are you in a suit? Fahvour my sister asked with a smile."This dude right here is in loooooveee," I stretched the word love and pulled her with me as I did an abrupt left to right slide that made her break out in fits of laughter before she spoke."And who said I didn't know about that? She questioned, or should I say stated, with a knowing look on her face."Ugh!" I groaned in dissapointment. "Can't someone surprise you this days?She shook her head, a smirk etched on her lips as she blurted a "Nope, not you, because am always one step ahead of you. By the way, I hope it's who I think she is," She voiced out and fixed me with a glare."Well, it all depends on
Joanna's POV"Umm, hmm." I cleared my throat not able to co-ordinate words to say."Umm, why are you putting on a suit in this blazing sun? I questioned, finally able to say something tangible.He didn't reply, rather he stood there grinning from ear to ear."What are you doing? I asked, my voice a bit louder and clearer this time."We my lady are going out on a date," He voiced out, and let himself in."Date? Why? I questioned a bit flustered as I tried to hide my blush."Follow me if you want to find out." He smirked, his words having an underlying meaning that I couldn't comprehend."Alright," I blurted out hesistantly. "Can you wait a bit while I put on something reasonable to wear?"You look fine to me." He winked, and I felt the invisible butterflies in my stomach begin their gymnastics.
Joanna's POV"You good Ana? He asked as he glanced briefly at me when he noticed my silence."Yeah," I replied with a shrug. "I'm just lost in thought""Okay then, get your head out of those silly thoughts, let's eat." He smiled.This shocked me as I looked around and realized we were already at the hotel. "Wow! That was fast!" I exclaimed"What are you waiting for, come on." He grinned, to which I shook my head and giggled when he held my hand after I had stepped out of the car."Why are you gigling? He questioned. "What's funny"I scoffed in response, in which he rolled his eyes and left me to go place our order while I looked for a good spot for us to sit as we entered the restaurant area of the hotel.I spotted one, and walked over. I got comfortable in my seat beside the window that overlooked the fun part
