Meanwhile, Naana and I are still friends sort of. One sided friendship. I do all the calling, helping, texting and she just has to reciprocate the ones she feels like reciprocating. It was such an unpleasant situation but I kept pushing, I kept showing so much care and love that it was irritating.
I always want to know if she’s eaten, if she’s fine. I’m constantly trying to get a chance to be with her, be there for her. I just wouldn’t badge.
There was a day I almost cried while talking to her (but I didn’t… no I’m not lying, my eyes were quite dry, just that I sounded so sad). It was a Saturday, I called her and told her how much I really do love her.
“Can you give me just a chance?” I said pitifully
“Hmm… I like you as a friend but I don’t feel anything for you” she said..
I was just hurting myself the more.
So I guess finally she decided to make use of me. I got closer to her. She got used to my constant calling and texting but she knew I was a good guy so she just kept me around to help her when she needed me.
Alice became my comfort. We talked about everything…we talked for hours every night. She’ll tell me about the numerous guys that are hitting on her and how she’s ignoring them. Sometimes she has issues with her guy and she’ll use our call to make him jealous.
Till now, I still hadn’t seen Alice in person and yet we were closer friends than Bella and I. Then one day Bella said we should go meet her after school; she’ll take me there. I agreed. So when we closed, we begun our journey. I am really not that good at first meetings so I was nervous, I wondered how it will go. Alice always tells me about how shy she is and all, and looking at how shy I also am… well…
We took a taxi and arrived in no time. We were warmly invited into the living room by her mum. “Welcome, let me get you some water” she said warmly. “Oh we’re fine” Bella did the talking.
Bella and Alice were the best of friends so she just went straight to her room to get her. They started talking and laughing with excitement all of a sudden. Wow! So I’ll be the shy person here right? “Man up Jeff, man up!” I gave myself a short pep talk.
Suddenly she walked out. Man! This girl is the definition of cute. Similar in stature to Naana, but she wasn’t fair. She was brown skinned and I really liked her complexion. I named her brown-skinned girl from that day and associated her with Chris Brown’s brown-skinned girl track.
She had neck lines (whatever the real name is) and a really cute face, small eyes, nose, lips and a perfect set of teeth. She wore a short hair that made her even cuter. And she had borrowed a bit of height with the heel that she wore. Her dress fit her nicely, black dress that was a bit short.
