It 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
Joanna's POV. The first day I met him when he came home with Elvis from school.How he fought a boy in my class for calling me a stammerer when Elvis wasn't in there.How he accepted my friends and joined us in our every activities. Even when it was against his class he would be on our side, which would make Elvis happy and angry sometimes.I also recalled he would smile when he saw me and his eyes shine a bright colour. As little as we were then, he always made me feel special.He would always gang up with me during hide and seek games plus other activities against the others and that day wasn't an exception.From what my little brain could take note of, it was a good day, we all ca
Frank's POVI regained consciousness a little over an hour later according to the nurses and was told I had a panic attack.When I asked about Joanna, it was relayed to me that she was admitted in the same hospital but in a different room.I immediately traced my steps to the location after I was told the room number and went straight in search of her, despite the protests of the nurses and other patients in the same ward with me, to have some rest.Now there I was sitting beside her bed as she lay still, the steady rise and fall of her chest plus the lack of wires connected to her, the only assurance she was asleep and not in a coma.I had been sat in that same position for hours. I refused to speak to anyone no matter how hard they tried, the nurses, the doctor,her parents,Elvis, even her friends, I spoke to no one.They tried to find out what happe
Frank's POVI nodded in response to the doctor's question as my brain shifted back to space mode while I watched him do his normal routine check up."Any news? I asked curiously, my voice emotionless."She's fine." He smiled, "The shock has passed, so she's all good. It's left to her to wake up on her own whenever her brain decides to""How about her memory? Elvis questioned, to which the doctor sighed."I can't say, its a 50/50 issue. Medically there's nothing wrong with her brain but there's a possibility that the brain kind of shut down as a result of too much information and flashbacks," He blurted."But on the bright side, it might just be a way for the brain to absorb the much information it received, resulting in the temporary shut down. So there's a possibility of her still retaining her memory. Like I said it's a 50/50 issue, it'
