He kept on checking his phone and for the fifth time. There were no missed calls or any text from her. He was beginning to get worried and so he called his best friend.
“Hey buddy, what’s up?”
“Nothing much, you good?”
“Yeah. I can’t reach Dani, is she over at your house?”
“Nope,” he replied stressing the ‘p‘ sound. “You can call Stacie or Ruth, they may be together or something, ya know those girls how they do,” Louie stated.
“Thanks man, I’ll see ya.” Ezekiel dialed his sister’s number and she picked on the second ring. He quickly asked her if Dani was with her.
“Yes, she’s with me but Ruth is not here. I’ll tell her you called and she’ll call you, keep your mind calm.”
His mind was at peace hearing his girlfriend was having a nice time with his sister. He smiled. “That girl got me wrapped around her fingers, he muttered to himself. His phone vibrated in his pocket. Checking the caller ID, he smiled.
“Ni hao ma.”
“Wo hen hao, ni ne?”
“Wo ye hen hao.”
“Mama what’s happening, you miss me already?”
“My son, I miss you everyday. Are you traveling down to China for the holiday?” his mother asked.
“Bu dui. I have plans with my friends, Stacie isn’t coming home too.”
“Okay son, stay safe. Wo ai ni.”
“Wo ye ai ni, mama.” He hung up and shoved his phone back into his pocket.
