“You’re Jeremy’s what?” We heard a voice and turned to see it was Jeremy
He left where he stood and drew closer. The lady was already looking like a rat.
“You’re Jeremy’s what?”, he asked again, looking at the lady.
She couldn’t say a word as she just folded her hands in annoyance.
“You better stay away from Natalie” Jeremy said in anger and walked away.
Huh? She made him angry. Who the hell is she?
“So, you’re a nobody after all?” I turned to her and ask
“What did you just call me?” She asked with a scoff.
“You’re lucky I didn’t realize that on time else, you’d have been searching for one of your eyes by now”.
“Come on, Kim. Let’s go in” Nari said calmly to me and I rolled my eyes and followed her into the house.
“Who the hell is that lady?” I asked Nari as she took me into what looked like her room..
“She’s my brother’s ex” she replied tiredly.
Jeremy had a girlfriend?
“Jeremy’s girlfriend?” I repeated in shock.
“Yeah – its a long story anyway. They used to be the best couples, but she left him and traveled to Miami to be with someone else and after six months, she’s back. I seriously have no idea why she’s here” Nari replied with a shrug.
So, she’s actually Jeremy’s ex? She’s lucky I had no idea else, I’d have skinned her alive.
“By the way, welcome to my room” she said after a short silence, spreading her arms apart.
Mmm. The room was beautiful. But mine was bigger and more pretty.
“So, you do have a room in here?” I asked as I sat on the bed.
“Yeah – I do. You know, since I visited here often, they thought it wise to get me a room.” She explained while I nodded, taking my eyes around.
“Hold on; you didn’t come with a book? I thought we were going to read?” She asked and I itched my head.
“Uh…do we really have to read? I’m kinda of dizzy” I twitched.
“Huh? You’re dizzy? Then, why didn’t you just stay at home and have some rest?”
“I just needed to stay with someone. Um…why don’t we go to Jeremy’s room and read?” I asked and she laughed.
“How do you think that’s possible, Kim? Besides, Jeremy’s about leaving the house. He’s having a birthday party to attend” she said and my eyes beamed.
“He’s going for a party?” I asked in surprise and she nodded
“Uh…don’t you know the celebrant?” I asked curiously.
“Well, I do. He’s Jeremy’s best friend. Just that…I didn’t feel like going for the party” she said the last part with a sigh
Hmph. Fun-killer. It’d had been pretty nice going to the party with Jeremy
I stood in front of my wardrobe, looking for something suitable to wear to Ji-tae’s party.
Suddenly, there was a knock on the door.
“Who’s there?” I asked angrily.
I can’t believe Natalie ended up ruining my mood.
“Who’s there?” I asked again when I didn’t hear any reply.
There was still no reply and I went to check it out.
I opened the door and of course! It was Natalie – the b***h. Just like I had suspected.
“Do you really have a death wish, Natalie?” I asked in anger as she stood with a fake pitiful face.
“Jeremy please; I’m begging you; just give me a chance to say something” she pleaded and tried hold my hand.
“What do you really have to say, Natalie? Like f**k,I’m done with you and I don’t wanna see you anywhere around me. So please, get lost before you make me do something crazy” I told her and tried going in but she stopped me.
“Okay fine. Just one request. Today’s Ji-tae’s birthday, right? Can I at least, be your date to the party?” She asked and I scoffed.
Is this lady for real?
“You must be a joker. I’d rather stay at home than take someone like you as a date” I growled and she fumed.
“Come on Jeremy, I know you. All your friends will be coming with their dates. Do you really wanna be the only one left behind?” She asked and I grinned.
“Well, bad news; I already have a date for the party. So, you’re not needed”.
“You’re lying” she huffed.
“Really? Then, watch and see” I told her and returned to the room, whacking the door close.
Gosh! I need to prove this lady wrong. I can’t let her follow me to the party. Never!
I need a date to the party.
I thought for a while. Who will I use?
Hold on; Kim!
Mi cha (Cold-hearted)
I zipped up my black boots and made sure I was good to go. Then, I took my bag from the bed and left the room, ready for my next mission – headed for the party.
