Our facesare glued to the window; we are being the clear definition of nosy neighbors. But, can you blame us, at least twenty movers got down?
“Are they going to demolish the house and build a palace or what?” My mom says jokingly as he lifts the chair near the window.
My dad saw my mom picking up the chair ran to her and took the chair and brought it closer to the window. Sometimes, when I see them both, I envy their love.
They were no childhood sweethearts; they both met in a parent-teacher conference, where my dad brought his nephew, my cousin, Peter. Peter is a very enthusiastic kid who was a prankster then itself.
So, when my dad had to cover up in place of his dad, because, Peter tricked him with his baby face. My mom found right through their charade and called his actual father. Back in the day, it seems my dad was a womanizer. I know ew!
My mom was sure a tough nut to crack, but soon one coffee lead to celebrating their first anniversary and then they got married. Voila, my sister was born then me and the rest is history.
The surprise is even after 20 years of marriage, there is love in both of their eyes, even if they fight they resolve it before bedtime. They have this rule, which they ask us to follow as well, we should not go to bed with an angry heart and empty stomach.
The empty stomach is the reason why I am like this, I guess, but sometimes, cause of that rule only I guess I will not find the love of my life. I mean who wants to date an inflated balloon. Sometimes, I wonder maybe if I would have been thin.
I too would have a boy stand next to me and shower me with love and kisses as my parents.
But, I guess in that sense, I will never be in love.
Because how much ever I try or people around me try, I have never had the motivation or the need to lose weight. I am not having any health condition, which requires me to lose weight. I am sure all of you would think, the disease may not be visible now, but as days pass by I might get it.
First, it is my body, and more than all of you people, I am more concerned about my body. Second, I am trying to eat healthily, but unlike some skinny people, who always eat salad and are on crash diets. So, I am healthy for now, and let me live my life.
Because, I do not want to be this person after years, be like, I could have lived my life when I was young.
Even if we are being so cautious now, there will be a point in our life, where we will be restricted to eat some food and that is how the human system works. So instead of earning for food then, let me at least eat now and be happy.
My trains of thought come to a scorching halt when I see the family getting down from the Range Rovers. Yes, plural they are getting down from full black Range Rover with red and white customization.
As I was staring at the cars, my eyes travel to a woman, she seems to be in her early forties or maybe even less. She looks so beautiful and is emitting a powerful aura, with confident strides in six-inch heels. She is wearing a netted white blouse with a tight black pencil skirt.
Walking close to her is a man who I am sure, would have been a heartthrob in his days. He is every girl’s dream, dark and tall with broad shoulders in a suit that looks like a tailored fit. Like the woman, he looks tough and domineering. They legit look like the power couple, they describe in movies.
He has his arm around her waist as they walk towards the house. There is this man in a classic black and white suit, which follows them close from behind.
I guess he should be their bodyguard or assistant; he starts directing the movers.
The driver opens the second Range Rover’s door and two boys get down. One of them looks like he should be four or five years old. He looks like the classic spoiled brat, he has a nanny walking behind him with his cartoon bag and he is eating a bar of chocolate as he walks towards his mother.
His mother talks away from the chocolate from his hand throws it in the trash bin and looks like she is scolding the nanny.
Amidst all this chaos, I do not notice the dude who looked like he walked off from a runway show. He is wearing a white fancy shirt, which is half-tuck in with sleeves rolled up, and the first two buttons were unbuttoned. He is wearing straight pants with loafers.
“Hey, that boy looks like your age, isn’t he Sophia?” My dad asks as a mom, to which she turned to me with a sly smile.
“Oh darling, I think so too, don’t you think he will make an amazing partner to our Savannah?” She asks my dad but she is still looking at me.
“Mom, what the hell? Who tells partner nowadays, he looks like a modal, probably he has a girlfriend also, he will never go for a girl like me.” I say as I look down and was about to go upstairs to my room.
“Savannah dear, first no swearing in this household. Next, why are you talking like this? Where is my confident darling who walked with her head high in princess pageant?”
My dad asks, trying to control his laughter.
“God! Dad, we have sworn not to talk about that awful time again till our graves.” I say huffing out air and cross my arms playfully.
I had to attend that stupid show just cause my friend at that time, made fun of me that, I can’t attend that show because I look so ugly. Let's just tell you, she didn’t win the show, neither did I.
But, unfortunately, she couldn’t even walk in the runaway, cause her dress was ruined because someone poured paint all over it. No one could find the person who was behind it. I guess some mysteries are better to be left unsolved right?
“Why are they dressed in formals though? Look even the small boy has a bow tie on. He looks so cute right, seems like he is pointing at something.”
My mom asks as he looks at the boy sweetly.
My eyes are fixed on the handsome guy, he doesn’t emit that powerful aura, but he has this boyish charm and arrogance surrounding him. I mean what can we expect from a loaded dude, he is born with the silver spoon kind I guess?
“Honey, I guess he is not pointing but at someone, and it's us.”
My dad says panicking and we shut the curtains, as all three of us turn to our side.
“That was so embarrassing, mom and dad, you guys were sitting on chairs and looking at them as if you were seeing a movie.”
“Oh don’t start pointing fingers already, we both saw how you were looking at that guy with your mouth wide open. Also, young lady, is this the tone you want to talk with us?”
My dad asks seeming to be angry but we all were diverting our minds.
My mom is secretly smiling and looking at our animated exchange, in that moment, there is a loud ping that resonates through our house.
We all freeze at the same spot and look at the door as if we all just imagined the sound. I am the first one to come out of the trance, I start to walk back up to my room.
But my mom and dad give me weird look and my dad whispers,
“You are part of creepers quad as well!”
Feeling embarrassed my mom opens the door and my dad and I act as if we are opening the cartons. Acting oblivious is the best we can do now.To our surprise, after my mother opens the door, we are met with two beautiful smiles from the power couple. They stand hand in hand with each other, they look excited."Hello, we are the Browns, we are moving in today. Nice to meet you, all!"The woman tells as she looks at my mom expectantly.It took my mom a good minute to come out of her trance and say the dumbest thing a person can ever say."We are not stalkers".That's it! I was packing my bags to Antarct
“Savannah Marie Jones, if you don’t get up in like five minutes, you will have to walk to your first day of school.”Isn’t this a wonderful way to get up? Normal people wake up with the alarm and I get up with my mom’s early morning screaming. Life is wonderful.I turn to get my phone and I am put in shock with the time flashing in it. I have only had twenty minutes for my bus to come. I jump out of the bed and start multitasking.I start brushing my teeth and also stare at my wardrobe thinking about what I should wear for the first day of school. I complete my morning activities and slip into my outfit of the day.I wear a dark blue shirt with white stripes and blue jeans, I quickly wear
Wow, that’s interesting, she brought me to a place, which is no way close or is the office room.She turns with her ponytail skipping my mouth in few centimeters. I take a step back and look at her confused.Slowly her lips turn upwards and she morphs into a crazy clown, I would not like to compare her to the IT clown too. Because I feel, he looked better than the current face she is pulling off.“Oh my god! Why are you not reacting?”Finally, she opens her mouth. I close and open my mouth like a fish out of water because I have a feeling where our conversation is leading. But I just wanted to hear it for my sake.The thing is sadly this is not my first rodeo with people like her, basic pretentious girls who like to flaunt their daddy’s money and look down upon everyone who walks past them.I thought she is different to be honest, because unlike my last meetups. She is not dressed in skimpy, tight clothes with hair th
I just ran off to the bathroom to cool myself, as I was seeing only red. I mean it’s not an everyday thing, I have done something like this, I mean when I collected this information and pictures, I kept it as a last resort kind of thing. But she just ticked off me in some way, that I couldn’t control myself. I am so sure, I am going to land in trouble on the first day of my school. But, I would be lying if I am saying I am not feeling like that happiest girl in the world.I guess that weeny little bitch ran off to the parking lot, running from the preying wears and mouths of people.My class is going to start in 5 minutes and I have still not found the office, I am losing my mind but I take some more time and count from 1-10, as they say in movies. I felt better and go out.Surprisingly there was no one in the corridor. I see a janitor and after asking him the way, I start walking to the office. The office lady was so sweet she handed m
Oh ok what have I done why is everyone talking to me today. My inner loner self is laughing at me. It's Jacob, great I am being famous, my mind tells me I have a very bad fall after this for sure, and hopefully it is metaphorically and not physically.He jogs up to me and I hear Ethan says, “Who even screams someone’s name that far across the hall, do you know that dude, or should I?"Weird, but why do I feel so happy hearing it? Ok, for sure a bad news is going to hit my ears soon. What I am a little pessimistic, sue me?Before I could respond to Ethan, Jacob caches up with us, though we slowed our walk we were still walking,He was breathing too heavily for the way he looked, like I guess he should have run for like two minutes, he is already hyperventilating. Like dude, aren’t you like in any sports, he surely does work out, those abs I saw the other day doesn’t come by just sitting and walking around.Wow, I just side tr
I just followed him silently, all my thoughts came to a halt as soon as the smell of books hit me nose. As I entered the library there was a lady in bright cherry red skirt and matching blouse, with bright red lipstick. She should be probably in her fifties, she is looking at me with a smile and gets me a library card issued.I walk around through the shelves, it was all arranged in alphabetical order of genre, within each genre, and the books were arranged in the order of the title’s first letter.Everything looks so organized and clean, I entered my favorite aisle that is literature. As soon as I entered, I took a step back, because there stood a boy with worn out black leather jacket and hair styled to perfection looking through the books like a small boy in candy store.“Please close your mouth; flies may enter your pretty mouth.”I close my mouth immediately and my cheeks turn red in embarrassment. He starts chuckling looking at my
