I turned and saw a figure looking at me. I was startled and stood up from the chair.
“Look… I’m sorry,” I said as fear gripped me. I walked closer to the figure. I sighed as I noticed it was my imagination playing tricks on me. I quickly rushed to the laptop and took the information I needed. I went back to the sitting room and kept everything in order.
I sighed as the plan had already walked quite well. I think I should really try getting close to Bob. I walked back to my room, switched off my lampstand and wrapped my body with blanket. I thought about today and soon drifted to Wonderland.
I woke up from the brightness from the sun. I turned and covered my eyes with my pillow. I felt a hand tap my back. I turned and saw John smiling at me.
“Hey! Rise and shine,” he said smiling.
“Argh!” I groaned. “I don’t wanna shine this early!” I said and sat properly on my bed. He looked cute and dangerous at the same time.
“C’mon! I gat something for you,” he said.
“What… what… what?” I asked curiously.
“C’mon… it’s just an idea,” he said and my countenance changed.
“Mmm… what’s that?” I asked.
“I’m not telling you until you brush your mouth… ouch! Did you eat an onion?” he asked with a disgusted face.
“That’s it.. leave me room!” I retorted and threw my pillows at him. He giggled and ran around my room. We played until I was exhausted.
“Alright… you win,” I said and collapsed on my bed.
“Winning is my habit dear… don’t get to my bad sad,” he said without smile and walked out of the room.
Winning is indeed your habit, but I’m gonna change that habit.
I walked sluggishly to the bathroom, took my toothbrush and applied a pee of toothpaste on it and brushed my teeth. I inhaled my breath. Fresh breath
I sighed and took off my pajamas. I changed to something more suitable and strolled to the kitchen. I washed the old dishes in the sink and prepared pancake breakfast.
I served the food. My parents and John’s parent’s aren’t yet awake. I went to their rooms and they weren’t there.
I was confused. I walked to the Jacuzzi tub and saw them standing with a big cake.
“Happy birthday!” they’ll chorused.
I only stood and kept my mouth agape.
“Did you have to stay that long before figuring us out?” my dad asked with a grin and sat down.
“Happy birthday Ann,” John said and cut the cake.
“Thanks” I said half laughing, half giggling.
John is so unbelievable! He was so so romantic!
I wish he was a good guy. But I’m sorry John.
I can’t be with you. We ate the cake and enjoyed the day with the cool breeze and a bottle of champagne.
Our parents went to their rooms. We (I and John) sat on the beach chair facing the sun.
“Don’t you wanna know about the idea?” John asked. I turned and looked at me.
“Oops! Sorry about that” I said.
“I totally forgot!” I added.
“Hey… thinking about Bob… I think he loves you,” he said.
“So…?” I asked confused.
“We can use it against him” he answered.
“How?” I asked.
“Look… I can make him really jealous and he’ll probably fall in love with you and then boom!” He clapped his hands. “We’ll get back at him,” he said with a smile and raised his eyebrows.
He wanted to use me as a tool. I smiled within me. I chuckled and replied, “No… I’m not interested.”
“C’mon! That’s the only chance we’ve got!” he persuaded.
“Alright then. I’m in,” I said and he smiled. “But… ” I said and he gasped.
“What again?” he asked.
“I get to eat the cake alone,” I said and took the remaining and ran out.
He came after me and I ran very fast.
