Korina wore her mittens immediately she heard the timer go off, she opened the oven and brought out the tray of brownies.
The aroma wafted through the air and she did a dramatic sniff, her mouth watered at the sight of the brown pastries. She set them down on the counter, took a knife and proceeded to cut them into shape when she heard a knock on the door.
"Coming." She yelled as she quickly made her way to the door.
There was no one in sight when she answered the door, even when she peeped at both sides of the hallway not a single soul was found. She was about to step out further when she hit her foot on something.
Korina looked down to find a white box and bouquet of flowers.
She picked them up and took them into the apartment silently praying that a bomb wasn't implanted in them.
She dropped them on a coffee table and took a whiff of the flowers,they smelt heavenly, yello
"Hey!" Korina's hand flew to her chest as she jumped off the chair in fright, the voice startled her."Daniella!" She screamed as she watched her walk excitedly into the apartment,"you can't just barge in like that, don't frighten me into having a heart attack."Her hand was still on her chest, her rapid breathing was beginning to slow down."Oh come on." Daniella dropped her purse on the bed and began pulling off her jacket,"you knew I was coming and besides you gave me your spare key, remember?""That I did and I might have to retrieve it back, in fact why are you here? It's 7pm and it's dark and late." She asked resuming her position on he chair."You have a date tonight remember? I am here to fix you up."Daniella walked over to Korina's closet threw the covers apart and started rummaging for an outfit."Oh my God, I totally forgot I had a date tonight."<
"This him?" korina asked as Daniella parked her car and turned off the ignition."Yes, that's him." She replied, using her hand to pull some hair away from her face, "So that's the place." She pointed to a 3 story building they were parked two buildings away from. The building was painted in all white, It looked a bit grand with the great architectural design of the pillars, Super fine tall glass windows and you could see the numerous chandeliers and all the other stuff associated with grandeur through them. The name of the restaurant was carved in bold italics on the top of the building, Korina thought the restaurant was simply magnificent, the type all the billionaires go to dine."You done gaping at it?" Daniella asked as she saw the way Korina scrutinized every visible detail of the restaurant."I think I should go now, I am running late." Korina said grabbing
"You must be one lucky girl." Korina heard a voice say as soon as she opened her eyes.Her vision was blurred, she could hardly see, she couldn't even make out the image of the person hovering above her or the image of her surroundings.Her head ached, it felt as if it kept splitting into two, she felt slight pains all over her body.She tried recalling the happenings, she tried remembering what led to what but her efforts proved futile and thinking made her head ache more."Korina." She heard the voice which she now found familiar call out again, "Can you hear me?" She almost screamed as she felt the pain in her head grow."Yes." She croaked, She closed her eyes and opened them again, She could see a little bit this time, her vision was gradually clearing up, She could make things out now, She saw she was on a hospital bed and she could see the face above her.It was mr hottie,
WARNING ⚠️: violent and bloody scene, violent themes, I repeat violent and bloody themes!please be warned."You should speak to Dan." Aunt Dido said, she shifted the blanket covering Korina.Korina frowned at her words and sighed."She feels bad and she's terribly sorry dear." She handed Korina a glass of water to take her tablets, She took it from aunt Dido took a gulp and put the tablets she held in her hand into her mouth, swallowing it all."Aunt." Korina said after recovering from the bitter taste of the tablets, "If she had shown that retard my picture at first we wouldn't be facing this, the date would have never been fixed, this disaster wouldn't have occurred and I could have been in my bed at home not a hospital bed.""I was angry at first too dear." Aunt Dido replied, "But Daniella was trying to look out for you, she thought she coul
"I nearly died.""I am sorry, truly deeply sorry.""You almost got me killed.""I am really sorry Korina.""I didn't want to go on that date." Korina said, "you made me do it." She pointed an accusing finger at Daniella."How was I suppose to know he was a psychopath?" Daniella asked and Korina went silent.She and Korina hadn't spoken to each in the last th
"When it rains, it pours" Korina remembered the old adage as she looked through the windows.The proverbial term was literally playing out in front of her. She watched the rain drops come down aggressively, two huge rain drops fell on the window and her eyes followed their movement as they rolled downwards.She sighed, I have a feeling that today is gonna be hella terrible.She turned to look at the clock, it was 9:00AM and she was late."I just have to go in the rain." She mumbled, she buttoned up her coat, grabbed an umbrella and exited the apartment. The elevator ride all the way down seemed longer than usual to Korina today, it was beginning to irritate her, as soon as it stopped, she got out of the elevator and raced towards the garage.Tha
"My life is simple." Korina said as she got into the car, "I wake up and suffer.""You look terrible and you left some conditioner on your hair." Daniella said moving her hand to touch the whitish cream on Korina's hair."Don't." She said slapping her hand away, "Don't touch it, it's pigeon poop.""Oh, jeez." Daniella laughed."What's funny? Why are you laughing?""Nothing." Daniella said shaking her head."Come on, tell me." Korina faced her angrily, " Am I cracking jokes now?""Nope." Daniella said, "Today is not your day.""Tell me about it." She replied with a sigh, She looked out the car window, "Oh look, just as you got here, the rain stopped, How wonderful!" She remarked, "The skies are all cleared up and the sun shining brightly." Maybe you are jinxed." Daniella winked."Dan, I called you to come
Korina considered turning her shopping cart over and climbing it when she realised that her efforts to reach the top shelves proved futile.I just want to get my cereal in peace not to get a proof that I am short, She frowned.She decided to climb the shelves to get her cereals, putting her feet on the lower rack, she raised her hands and held a higher rack for support."No need to do that.", She heard a voice say, " I got you.", Korina turned to look, it was a girl who she presumed was definitely Asian.The girl brought down a box of cereal, "How many do you need?" She asked smiling."Just 4." Korina replied and came down from the shelves, "Waoh, you are tall." Korina exclaimed, "Like really tall.""Here you go." The girl handed over the boxes to Korina."Just how tall are you?" Korina asked as she put the cereal boxes in the cart.
