"Lia,stop it!give me the icecream"
"Lia,I said give me the damn icecream"
"No...no...no...is that clear?"
"Okay cool,I'm gonna use another language then,I'll call it body language."
Just then,Neil came close .
"Neil ! back off okay"
Neil continued coming closer and I kept on blabbering nonsense till he squeezed my cheeks and gave me the most unexpected kiss.As soon as I froze,he took the icecream from me.
"Ahaha,Neil Castor's kiss had an effect on Lia huh" Neil said to tease me while I was like a statue.
"You piece of rotten pineapple."
"Be proud girl,not everyone has the chance of experiencing Neil Castor's kiss."
Just then,I was shocked on seeing Alice.
"Hello Neil and Lia" she said with a worried face .
I'm sure she was thinking of what was I doing with Neil.However,we told her that she could join us. Since Neil was there,how could Alice not want to stay?
"Neil,I wanted to ask you something for the project"
"Please,don't spoil my mood okay! I don't want to discuss anything about the project now" Neil told Alice while eating his ice cream.
"Don't be so rude Neil.." I whispered to him
"It's okay Lia,Neil is my friend,he can talk to me like that. I don't mind"
Just then I heard Neil whisper..."friend?" sarcastically
"Uhh! Just a minute,I got to receive a call"I said and went out of the ice cream parlor. Of course I said that to get out and let them together since my mission was to make them become friends.Surprisingly... they started talking to each other.
"Neil,why do you keep ignoring me?
"Because I want to" I replied
"What if I changed?"
"Good,I'm happy for you"
"Neil,can you come with me to the shopping mall Saturday?,I need to buy something for my cousin for her birthday"
"I don't know.."
"I'll wait for your answer,bye I need to go"
What does this girl want from me?
I never liked her cause she was one of the most bossy and arrogant girl.Her parents are rich and owner of an Expensive watch brand Company,"Silvia". She thought that I would be attracted to her since she was a popular and rich girl. Oops! It's nearly six.
"Where is Alice?" Lia asked eagerly
"She just went"
"Oh,I didn't notice her. By the way how is she?"
"She wants me to go shopping with her for her cousin's birthday"
"REALLY.....YOU SHOULD GO!" Lia shouted and jumped with happiness
"Lia....why are you so happy?"
I felt so embarassed after thinking how I reacted when Neil told me that he was going out with Alice on Saturday. I had a crush too. A simple British guy,very well mannered and decent but he left school because he had to do an operation since he suffered from Cancer. We were good friends and when he told me that he would be leaving school,I cried my heart out without knowing that I would be leaving school too.He hid the fact that he had cancer for like a year and when he was about to leave school he told me the truth.I wonder whether his operation was a success or he is up among the stars in the sky with my parents.
We both had feelings for each other but could never express it.
"I am surely not going with her" Neil said
"Why Neil? you should go since she is asking you sincerely. I think it's not right to ignore someone who's been wanting to be a friend of yours"
"I'll think over that..."
"Thank you,Oh...Nona is waiting for me,bye Neil"
"Come I'll drop you on my bicycle"
"No it's okay"
"Lia...I could let you but think of a black van stopping and kidnapping you and bringing you in a desserted place full of...."
I opened the door and went in.
"Hello Lia darling"
"Hi Nona and Nono,sorry for being late,I went to eat an icecream with my friend."
"Oh..I just hope you had fun. By the way Lia...do inform me if you are going out...since New York City is huge and you are new to the city,you can easily be lost."
"No problem Nona..I'll inform you"
