“What would you like to eat?” I asked her smiling widely.
“Anything you give me is fine by me. I am still very happy I am sitting here with you.” She said and I laughed softly.
“You really know how to flatter a person Hun.” I said and she flushed a little.
“I think that’s my personality.” She said as I called upon the waiter.
“Do you think Beyonce would care seeing us together?” She asked and I shook my head.
“She wouldn’t. She doesn’t care about me or who I see. She is on a date too.” I said smiling .
“So this is a date?” She asked and I nodded.
“Of course it is.” I said and her eyes widened.
“So who is this guy Elena went to see?” She asked as the waiter began to serve our orders.
“I have no idea Celine. I haven’t met him before.” I said and she rolled her eyes sighing. “Do you know him?” I asked.
“Marcus Stefan. Her ex boyfriend. Or let’s just say fiancee.” She said and I breathed out loud.
“So they are still seeing each other?” I asked in shock.
“From Elena side, yes. She still loves him, but Stefan doesn’t feel the same way. He doesn’t love her anymore.” She said chewing her pasteries.
“So why can’t she just let him go?” I asked sadly.
“It’s not that easy for Elena. And I went to talk to Marcus to stay away from her, but instead he came closer to her.” She said.
“Maybe after he saw the pictures on Instagram, he wanted to see if she had really moved on. So he asked her on a date, and she went.” I said and she shook her head.
“Stefan is of no good. I have talked to Elena countless of times about him. I told her to let him go and face reality but she refused. To the extent that she still want to go into the institute because of him.” She muttered and I furrowed my brows.
“Because of him? What do you mean?” I asked eagerly.
“Stefan left Elena for a beautiful lady who could sing so beautifully. He likes Elena but he wanted her to sing badly. But it happened she wasn’t a fan of music, They went their separate ways and this broke Elena. She promised herself that she would get into the institute and be a very good singer too, so he would regret leaving her.” She narrated.
“So she is doing all this to make him jealous?” I asked in awe and she nodded.
“Didn’t you know?” She asked and I shook my head.
“I thought she just wanted to act it so well that people would believe us. I never knew she was doing this because of an Ex.” I said feeling hurt.
“I just hope she comes to realize what she is missing or what she has missed.” She said and I nodded.
“She will. She will be forced to realize it.” I said.“Enough about Elena and I. What about you?” I asked trying to keep the conversation flowing.
“Nothing much about me actually.” She said.
“I don’t mind knowing that little. So spit.” I said and she laughed.
“Okay. I am 22 years old. Finish college few weeks ago. I am not in a relationship.” She said and I laughed.
“Just the last sentence makes me feel you have a lot I need to know about you.” I said and she flushed.
“Why are you not in a relationship?” I asked before she could speak up.
“Because I was in one before and it didn’t turn out well.” She said and my face turned sad.
“The guy’s fault again?” I asked and she shook her head.
“Nope. Death’s fault.” She said and I became mute.
“I am so sorry about that. I never knew.” I said sadly.
“I know. You don’t have to be sad.” She said Smiling and i nodded staring at her.
“Are you sure you don’t want me to come in?” Stefan asked and I tuned to look at him as soon as I got to the door.
“I am sure. Thank you for today.” I said smiling.
“My pleasure. So when are we doing this again? This time, there won’t be Jace around to spoil the fun.” He said Smiling.
“I don’t know when that will be. You know I am engaged, that was just having fun outside the home.” I said and he smiled nodding.
“And if I may ask, where is your ring? You said he proposed to you and I can’t find any ring on your finger.” He said looking at my finger.
“Oh the ring. I left it in the house, didn’t want any one laying their eyes on it you know.” I said and he nodded.
“But you need to have it on, to avoid the men’s eyes on you too.” He said and I smiled as a response.
“Just let me know when next you are bored, and I will take you out.” He said and I nodded.
“I will be glad. Don’t worry Stefan, I will call you if I need you. Thanks for your hospitality.” I said reaching for the door and opening it.
He waited for me to get into the house before he left. Immediately I got in, I walked to the living room and dropped my bag on the couch angrily.
“Why would Celine decide to go out with my boyfriend.” I thought angrily.
“He isn’t your boyfriend. He is your fake boyfriend.” My brain reminded and I was forced to calm down.
At least if he wants a relationship with her it should be after ours. People will mock us seeing us like this.
They will quickly guess our love isn’t true and it isn’t suppose to be. Not until after the 15 days of our courtship.
“And about that. I need a calendar to remind me of my counts. Today marks the second day of my stay in this house.
Knowing I still had thirteen days In his house gave me this joy I didn’t understand. I torn a paper from my joter and began to make my own calendar.
The days and the way I am going to spend them with Jace.
