SIRIUSAstra snatched the paper bags in my hand as we headed towards the living room of her apartment. Which, by the way, looks like a total mess as if a tornado just passed through the place. My eyes watched her took a sit on the white stained sofa in front of the television playing a Nickelodeon cartoon show. So this is what's keeping her busy these past days? Unbelievable woman!"When was the last time you took a bath, dumb ass? It seems like a lightning just struck your hair," I shook my head in disbelief as I took a sit on the much cleaner single couch beside the sofa. "And what is this place? Can you call a fucking room service? You pathetic woman!"I heard her snorted at my ranting. Her eyes were fixated on the television while one of her hand was reaching inside the paper bag. A silent grunt escaped her lips when she found a burger in there."Really? This is what I've been eating for the past days, Sirius. Couldn't you have bring anything else aside from this? A fancy meal fr
ASTRA I fell down weakly on the concrete floor, teary eyed, catching my breath, and gripping tightly on my phone. I whimpered pathetically as I furiously blinked away the tears clouding my eyes. With shaky hands and blurry eyes, I pressed the dial button and rang Matteo's phone.There was an immediate response after two rings."Astra! I left you for ten minutes and you're already out of your dressing room. Where did you go? The first round of rehearsals will be done in a few minutes.""Matt..." I sobbed weakly after he was done talking. "R-rooftop please. I'm sorry."I pressed my eyes tightly, biting my bottom lip, trying my best to suppress the sobs wanting to break free from my mouth. I'm a killer...Matteo didn't take too long to arrive. The rooftop door burst open, and my sobs and whimpers burst free as well. I remained lying there on the ground, crying in utter frustration as I heard his loud curses of confusion, and worry.He ran quickly towards me and held my weak body. I fel
SIRIUSAfter making sure that the water was hot and boiling enough for my liking, I began pouring the pasta and filling the pot that would make a meal just enough for three people. Well, me and Astra... and an extra plate that she can reheat for later.Beside the pot was a frying pan where I'm cooking a well marinated chicken. I wanted to serve her real food that she can enjoy for tonight... and well, maybe for the next following days if I'd still be in a kind mood to keep paying her a visit.I put away the frying pan cover and flipped the chiken once I'm sure the other side were already cooked. I could feel Astra eyeing me from behind and I wanted to roll my eyes and shout at her had she just not finish crying a few minutes ago.I know she's still baffled at the niceity I'm showing right now. But she needs to know that I, myself, is quiete confused with my own actions, too! Astra cleared her throat and I turned to look at her after covering the pot and pan. Our gazes lingered for a
ASTRAI scooped a spoonful of cereal and shoved it in my mouth, merely tasting its sweetness 'cause my head and attention were focused to somewhere else.After another spoon, my eyes once again darted back to my door. It's nearly ten in the evening! What's taking him so long? I thought he'd be here earlier than he was yesterday. Now what?!I rolled my eyes in irritation before dropping my cereal bowl on the center table of my living room. Whatever! It's not like it is his obligation to come here every night to pay my ass a pitiful visit. Who am I anyway? I'm just a friend!A friend...I giggled on my seat, still utterly amused remembering his friendship proposal last night. I couldn't believe we can actually be something else other than enemies! And since I'm pathetic and I have no other friends right now, who am I to decline his offer? Even if his concern and kindness were out of pity, I'd gladly take out. I am in a very desperate position right now for someone else's company.Not th
SIRIUS"A funfair?!" Astra screeched beside me after I parked the car in front of the ride park where I planned to bring her for this day. She turned to look at me with a hard glare, visibly against my plan.Of course, I already expected this reaction from her. So before she could scream at my face again, my hand reached for the paper bag on the backseat and threw it at her lap. "I got us some disguise. Trust me, nobody would recognize us. And besides, this is the most fun place on Earth! I bet you haven't visited a ride park for so long since you became a public figure."She sneered, rummaging on the paper bag. "Well, you're totally wrong! I, in fact, have visited one for a television show.""Oh... right." Yes, I remember now. I've watched that one episode where she was screeching so loud on the roller coaster while being asked by the interviewer some fun questions. "Well that's for the television so it's scripted. The fun is scripted. Your reactions are scripted-""Excuse me?! How
ASTRATo say that I was stunned hearing him stand up for me was an understatement. And the way he did it, I'm not sure if I should feel scared or laugh about it.He sounds so serious and scary! Not a single ounce of amusement can be trace on his voice.The three girls eyed us back, totally bewildered how Sirius just insulted them just now. The blonde girl in between the two other brunettes stepped forward and glared at him. She had her arms crossed against her chest, eyebrows cocked while trying her best to look tough in front of Sirius."Excuse me? Who even are you? Can you just mind your own business?"Sirius laughed humorlessly. "Mind my own business, huh? I suggest you take that advice to yourselves. You and your dumb friends are literally out here talking about someone who don't even know your dumbasses."Well now I know them..."And so what? Are you one of her fan?" They laughed in unison. "Your idol is so pathetic. I'm sure her career won't ever recover again after this issue.
Note: I noticed that I mistakenly uploaded the previous chapter twice so I'm just gonna edit this chapter into its rightful content instead of deleting. Thanks!SIRIUSAlthough my head was already spinning from the multiple rides we've tried today, I kept it to myself and let her pull me wherever ride her heart desired to experience.We're only down to two more rides and I couldn't help but utter a few silent prayers as the roaler coaster patiently awaits for us. Astra definitely reserved it for our last ride. I gulped the last drop of soda in my can before quickly wearing back my mask. We literally had to find a less crowded and darker place where park goers won't find us so we can enjoy our dinner meal. "I couldn't properly see anymore with this shades," she complained before taking a big bite off her hotdog sandwich. "We're about to go home anyway after we're done with the roller coaster."My brow arched a bit. "What about the ferris wheel?""Nah, it's corny and lame!" She shook h
ASTRAI plopped down on the soft mattress of my queen sized bed after taking a long shower. My body feels drain from all the shoutings I did today in the ride park. It was honestly a very fun experience with Sirius, and I hope it isn't the last time we'll hang out.A satisfied and contented sigh escaped my lips. I feel refreshed. For days, all I did was cry and feel anxious about everything. Nobody was there for me so I'm truly grateful having his sassy ass with me right now, even though I'm not sure how long he'll be staying to tolerate my presence.I yawned sleepily when I slowly felt the heaviness creeping up on my eyelids. I turned to face the other side of my bed and switched off the lamp on the bedside table, then I pulled the blanket up to my chin. The loud ringing of my phone woke me up the next morning. I groaned and tried to sleep through the noise but it just won't stop until I'm irritated! With a sigh, I sat upright on my bed and scratched my eyes while blinking rapidly.
