It's finally Saturday,woke up a bit late with a headache. Mom is not at home and Dad is still in Dubai concerning his business trip and my brother is out with his friends. I went down to the kitchen and saw a piece of paper on which mom wrote that she had an urgent work to do and she didn't have time to make breakfast.
I made my own breakfast and went to change cause I had to go with Alice to the mall.
As soon as I was ready,I took my bike and head to the mall that was nearby and saw Alice waiting.
"Oh thank you for coming Neil"
I went with Alice to buy something for her cousin.She saved her pocket money to buy her a gift.
"What are you going to buy?"
"Maybe a pair of sneakers and a perfume" Alice replied
We went in many shops and finally Alice bought her cousin's gift and Alice and I was sitting in a cafeteria inside the mall when I took my phone and called Lia.
"Who are you calling Neil?"
"That's none of your business Alice" I replied
Lia was not taking my call. Why? well nevermind.
"I'm going to the washroom" I said and went
Neil is so cold and rude sometimes,I wonder if he talks like that to Lia.
Oh! Neil left his phone.... let me see who is calling. LIA!!??
I must answer the call
Lia- Hey Neil sorry... I was taking a shower..by the way, is Mrs Castor at home because Nona sent me a message that she is out right now, I guess they went out together.Nono is not at home, and if you are free later on, can you bring me to the ice cream parlor you brought me the other day?? I am craving for that ice cream and I forgot the streets
Alice hung the phone
So that is Lia's real color...she lied about helping me establish a good relationship with Neil and she is the one that keeps on wanting to hang out with Neil. I'll not spear you Lia ... I'll show you what Alice is capable of doing.
"Oh there you are! will you order something to eat Neil?"
"No thanks .... by the way I got to go, since you already got what you wanted ,I guess I can go now"
"But Neil at least let's eat together"
"I'm not hungry" he said and went without listening to me
Lia will pay for doing this to me!!
I checked my phone and saw that Lia called and the call lasted ten seconds. But! I had forgotten my phone on the table,then who replied the call....Alice??
That girl is seriously losing it!!!!
I must call Lia again
-Hey Neil I just called you but you did not answer
-Yes I saw your call....do you have anything to tell me?
-Errrrr I was asking whether you could... nevermind I got something important to do.
-Okay then bye
I took my bike and returned home and sat on my sofa admiring the New York City view from my room.
I was never close to my father.Since I was a child,he never gave me the attention a father gives to his son. One day he is in a meeting and returns home at 2 a.m, sometimes he stays out all night or he is in a business party or abroad without calling. He bought a nintendo,a playstation and many other gadgets for my brother and I, but he never understood what I really needed. My brother is fine as long as he has gadgets but I turned out different. That is why I stopped expecting things from people.
I'm not sad that he did not take out time for me,but the fact that he takes time for my brother makes me kind of....sad. My brother never showed that he needed his father's love but he still gets it...and I craved for it...and never got it. Isn't that unfair? well these things don't matter to me now and I thank mom for taking care and giving me the support that my father could not give me.
Since no one was at home and Neil was with Alice, I guess I'll go to the ice cream parlor myself by using the gps app. I just hope nona will be home by the time I return. I wrote on a small paper that I was going to the icecream parlor and stuck it fridge door and went.
I am indeed bored today. I'll go for a walk in New York city.
I plugged my earphones and listened to Closer by Chainsmokers while walking on the streets. I thought of only one person since I woke up, Lia. I just could not stop thinking of her.
I felt heavy and lonely. I felt like I needed someone next to me.
I need ice cream I need ice cream I need ice cream!!!! Since yesterday I'm craving for that. It's weird how I get cravings for food sometimes but whatever,at least the gps app helped me. Neil must be having fun with Alice in the mall. But am I doing the right thing by helping Alice? cause the way she reacts when I talk to Neil sometimes makes me doubt the decision I took. Just then my inner told me to stop thinking about that and enjoy the ice cream. Just then I saw someone who seemed familiar passing by the ice cream parlor.
