After I got abandoned by her. I get stuck in here so I called Lucas.
"She's hard dude"
"I can't believe you're giving up like that"
"What are you talking about? Me? Giving up? Never"
"So how come you couldn't get her"
"I told you she's really hard to please"
"Well You've done a lot like that, why is it so hard, remeber the deadline bro"
"I know that"
"Oww...kay, good luck"
After I ended the call. I immediately find that girl.
I walked down the streets but still I couldn't find her.
Where exactly is she?
Until....I pass through a cemetery, I saw a girl there sitting on the ground and I can hear her sobs.
I came close to see who it is and I was right it's Bumper. I don't her name so I could only call her by this nickname.
As I stared at her I noticed that she's crying quietly.
She's caressing the grave infront of her, maybe her loved ones.
While I'm looking at her, she began to mumble and said. "I'm sorry mom, I'm sorry dad"
So the grave she was crying for was her parents. She lose her parents?
That's why she's like that is because she loose her parents and I know the feeling of it. When I was a child I lost my dad too, and that hurts me so much too.
So I kneeled beside her and slowly stretching hand, handing her a handkerchief.
But she didn't take it instead she lifted her head and faced me with her messy face due to her crying.
I habded her the handkerchief and slowly she took it and wipe her tears away.
I sat beside her as she began to calm down and sat also properly there.
"Why are you here?"....she asked but in a low tone.
"If you're gonna offer me again better not"...she said and her voice crack.
"Forget the offer right now, I didn't even bring that up"
She didn't say anything but stared only at the ground..
"I know the feeling of losing someone important to you, back when I was a child I lost my dad too"
She looked at me but didn't utter a word so I just jeep on talking.
"I was so sad seeing my dad's dead body that day, I was sad and even miserable, We we're too close back then, he will came to pick me up at school, and we will eat snack before heading home"
"What's the cause of your father's death?"..she asked.
"Car accident"....I said.
"You looked calm down, Let's go, It's about to rain too"....I said and she did.
While we're walking, I nituced that she is not making any noise, She's quiet and only the sound of the cars can be heard.
"Are you heading home?"...I asked and she nod at me without sparing me a glance.
"So now, can you accept the offer?"......I asked and now she's looking at me.
"No"...she said, but I really need her. Tomorrow is the deadline.
We have only agreed three days, three days of making her accept the offer.
But now....She's as hard as rock..
As the bus stops, she quickly get in so am I because I didn't even brought my car with me.
She sat on a single one so I have to sit in the back of her. It's not quite I like sitting with her.
"Is it still a No?"...I asked and she only nod at me. "Don't ask fo it again or else I'll punch you, I already said no, and nothing will change my mind"
Looks like I need to give up this time. I did everything and even if I want to, I have only one day left before deadline.
I didn't say anything and leaned my back.
After a deep thinking I felt that my phone was vibrating on my pocket so I took it and open it.
Lucas and Crane messaged me.
How did it go, Did she agreed? Hope she does, because you have to give your sports car to us.
What's up! How did it go? You know what Lucas can't stop laughing of you thinking of what you said earlier, he said that you called him just to say that she's hard to plead. Well bro a dare is a dare.
Yeah it's a dare, we only play it once a week and last week I was dared to date a woman. And they picked her.
And also they've set me up for only three days of dealing with her to make her accept the offer.
He has dealt with every woman they targetted for but it is the first time that he encounter a girl that is really hard as rock.
As the bus stops. She quickly got off the bus so I got out too.
"Hey".....I called her.
"What?"....she coldly said.
"I really need your help"....I said hoping that it will make her agreed to do this.
"Find another, I'm not interested".....still a No?
"You're really not?
"Yes, I said No already"
Is this the feeling of being rejected by a woman?
I've dated many, and none of them rejected me when I asked them out especially when it's only a dare and they are the target.
She walked and I let her. I didn't follow her but instead I got home.
"Wayne, son, where have you been?"...my mom asked and I looked at her.
"I went nearby mom".....I said and walked upstairs.
After I locked the door in my room. I sat on the bed and think.
Should I give up?
No, definitely not, If I gave up, I will only shame myself infront of them.
I will definitely find a way to make her agreed tomorrow.
And besides I love my sports car. I can't even let someone own it.
Just wait Bumper, You will definitely say Yes to me!To be continued...............
Morning came and I got up early. It's sunday today and I don't know her whereabouts but I do know her address so I will go there and check.And if you're about to ask where did I or who gave me her address, Well, someone didn't tell it to me.We have our research in every girl here in the university including her, well except for the teachers.As I began to fix my hair, I heard my phone ringing. Crane Calling...... Ringing........."Hey""What's up""It's seems that you're doing something""Yup, I need to, for the dare""Well, you really hate giving your sports car away?""Yeah, It's one of my favourite""Okay, finish the dare and your car is all yours""I know, Where's Lucas?""He's sorrounded by the girls again, showing off"<
SARAH'S POVAfter he left. I sat on the couch and calmed myself.Thinking of what I said earlier, I think he might not want to bother me anymore. I didn't want too, to be followed by him.As the clock strikes at five I quickly change my clothes and walk to the bus station.When I arrived there, I saw the bus coming so I stood there and wait for it.As soon as it stops infront of me. I quickly walked in and find a single seat , luckily I've got one.I sat there and plugged my earphones to my ears and listen to some music.While listening to it. I turned my head to see the view of the nature. But looking at it is like remebering the past, so I quickly turned my head and focused infront.As soon as the bus stop. I made my way out and walked to the coffee shop."Freind!!".....I heard someone shouting and, It's somehow familliar so when I lift my head to look, I saw Lesley walking near me.She hugged me and I hugged her.
"Sarah"I heard a familliar voice of a woman and that's when I saw my mother smiling at me.I ran towards her and hugged her."Mom"...I mumbled between our hugs."I missed you Sarah"...Mom said and pulled me tightly."I missed you too mom"....I said and my tears slowly escaped my eye."How are you dear?"...she asked."I'm fine mom"....I said and release myself from the hug."Good thing""Where's dad mom?"...I asked"Your dad is there"....she pointed out a par where my dad is so I walked towards ther and I saw my father smiling at me so I smiled and hugged him."I miss you dad""I miss you too, my little princess"....he said."I hope I could stay in here longer""You need to wake up Sarah, he's waiting for you, I can see that he's worried about you"...Are they talking about Wayne?"Mom...Dad....""You need to live dear, I love you"....mom said and we hugged together. "I love you Sara
"Mrs. Smith".....I said when they suddenly came in."Oh god, Sarah dear what happened?".....she immediately walked near me asking me worriedly."We we're worried about you?"...Mr. Smith said while standing on side oart of the bed."I'm okay, Mrs. Smith"...I said and they could just sigh in relief."Thank goodness, but what exactly happened?".....Mrs Smith asked me again and I looked at her."I only got stressed Mrs. Smith, I'm really okay maybe I can't handle that much stress that's why I fainted".....I explained."Are you having a problem about something or in your job?"..her husband next to her asked."No sir,"....I simply replied and they nod.After awhile the door ipened and It shows Lesley coming in."Hey mom"....she greeted her mom and put the medicine on the table baside the hospital bed."Oh right, your medicine, it's already past midnight".....she said and gave me one tablet and a glass of water.A
I looked at him surprised but I manage to maintain my expressionless eyes looking directly at him."Who told you to pay for me"....I calmly said but then he shook his head."Well....it's a pity if I'm onky buying this".....he said showing off his popsicle."Nevermind, I'll pay on my own".....I said and I told it to the cashier.After paying, I immediately open the glass doors of the convenience store and walked out not minding the person behind me."Why do we have to Bump into each other?".....Is he asking me right now?I didn't reply and keep on walking until he asked me a question."Are you feeling better already that's why you're going out like this?".....well...I could say is it a question? Yeah a dumb one.."Yes, I'm feeling better, Could I go out if I'm not".....I answered in a bit of sarcastic tone."Well, nevermind, just checking, I don't want to be blame if you fainted again".."Tsk!".....I could only gave him a gl
As soon as I got here. I quickly started my shift.It's not exhausting like last time becuase now we have plenty but easy to handle customers.••••••••When the clock stirkes 10:00, my colleauges went home one by one ao I was left here cleaning the tables.Karen should be the on whose doing this but she plead me because there was an emergency so I ket her off already.While cleaning I heard someones footstep coming in so I said, "We're closed Sir, You can be back tomorrow"....I announced and I noticed that it is a man so adressed him as "Sir"."Really?"....At his question, I can sense some arrogance on it so I lifted up my head to face him, not to my surprise It's Wayne."What are you doing here?"...I asked."Isn't it obvious?"...he said making me dumb one."And isn't it obvious that It is clearly stated outside that We. Are. Closed. Already".....I answered."But why does it say, We're open, Please
As I got back to my senses....I avoided his gaze and turning my heads focus onto another thing.And then he slowly let go of my waist and supports me until we came near his bike. After that, he was about to hold me agin when I stopped him and get things on my own, slowly lifting my feet to sat on his bike.As I sat properly he gave me another spare of his helmet. I grabbed it and instantly put it on my head.After I locked it he sat there too infront of me and starts off his engine.Before he could start, I slowly looked at him before saying, "Drive Slowly"....I almost whispered and he didn't sapre me a glance but focused only on his driving.As the ride goes.....I felt less triggered...He was driving not fast and not slow but in a right and exact one.A few more minutes passed and then we reached my home.He got off first and took off his helmet while I'm doing the same.After I took it off. I stretched my arm and handed it to him.
Morning came and I woke up first, and then I turned to the one sleeping beside me. I can only say she's such a sleepy head.Not wanting to disturb her, I get off the bed and proceeded on the bathroom.After showering...I headed downstaur to make some breakfast.While cooking I heard some footsteps and ywans from upstairs so I thought maybe Lesley, was already awake.After preparing breakfast I headed back upstairs to call her but she's nowhere to be found.I searched the whole room and got nothing.So I tried to look in the bathroom.And I was shocked because she is there sitting in the bowl while her toothbrush was stock on her mouth..Just when did I have a friend with this kind of habits.Even the sound of the door didn't bother her sleeping.So I let myself in and slowly got the toothbrush out of her mouth. I put it on the sink and try shaking her to wake her up.At first she just shrugs and sleep fpe more. Sin
