😍💋 THE GIRL HE NEVER NOTICED 💋😍
🍎 Chapter 25🍎
It was eight in the evening and I was on Skype, having a video chat with Zion. He showed me his room, by rotating his laptop quickly. Though not really clear, but I had a glimpse how huge and beautiful his room was.
“I have too many clutters here. I’ll clean this up later and tomorrow I can tour you around my room.” He was picking things on the floor. His bag, pants and shoes.
“You don’t have to do that for me.”
“Nah… I want to. ” He said, throwing a shirt at the side. “I often clean my room. I just got so busy lately.”
“You clean your own room?”
“Yeah, I do. My sister and I clean our own rooms. Mom trained us since we were young, or else dad will yell at us, I don’t have lazy kids. ”
I was surprised that he still did chores despite having too many servants. His mom must be utterly cool.
He dusted off his hands and sat down, putting his arms on the table, leaning closer. “I really wanted to see you today, but Harry came and wanted us to hang out with Izzy. I couldn’t say no. But tomorrow, I’ll see you after lunch. Sounds good?”
“Sure.” I knew I was blushing. The thought of seeing him again made me so excited. I felt like I was over the moon.
“What did you do today?” He asked.
“I read a book, watch TV and YouTube videos… surf the net… chatting with friends. Basically, the same as yesterday and the other day.”
He nodded gloomily and leaned backward on his seat. “You’ve been chatting with Izzy?”
“Israel? Not really. Just a hi – hello on Facebook messenger.” I shrugged my shoulders.
“He likes you.”
“Well… I always made it clear to him that we’re just friends.”
He shook his head and crossed his arms on his chest. “It’s not clear to him. He’s still hoping to have you as his girlfriend.”
“Oh. Is that so?”
“Yeah.” He averted his face, thinking, then faced me again. “I wanted to tell him to stop because you have a boyfriend already.”
What he said caught me by surprise. A boyfriend? My heart pounded so fast and my pulses racing.
He stared at me, eyes widened. “Yeah.”
“Who?” I knew who he was referring to, but I just needed to hear it coming from him.
“Of course. Me.” He answered, emphasizing the word ME.
I almost fell off my chair when he said that. The excitement running inside of me was too much to take. My heart was beating so fast, I was afraid it would burst.
“Since when?” I managed to ask.
He ran his hand through his messy dark brown hair. “Since last night… since the other day… since…” He was stammering and shrugging his shoulders, like a small boy trying to explain for stealing some cookies.
“I don’t remember you asking me to be your girlfriend.”
He smiled shyly and rubbed his neck. His face turned so red. “My bad. Um… will you be my girlfriend, Claire?”
My goodness! I felt so giddy that I had to steady myself. The excitement within me was so overwhelming. I pinched myself to make sure that I was not dreaming. Oh my God! He asked me to be his girlfriend.
I looked at the ceiling, thinking. Should I say YES now? Of course!
“Claire, no pressure. I’ll ask you again tomorrow when I see you. I want to do it properly. To ask you personally.” Zion said.
I was tongue-tied and heaved a long sigh. In a way, I was relieved.
The feeling was so new. I felt so weak, disoriented and my hands were trembling with excitement. This too much happiness was scaring me.
I saw the door behind Zion suddenly opened. A very pretty redhead young teenage girl came in.
“Hey! I told you to knock.” Zion said, glancing at the girl.
“You did not.” Zion said, then faced me again.
“Is that Claire?” The girl asked, leaning towards the camera. “It’s Claire! Hi Claire.” The girl smiled excitedly at me, waving her hand.
“This is my sister, Emerald. I told her about you.” Zion’s eyebrows rose.
“I saw your picture in Zion’s pho-” Emerald said and Zion covered her mouth.
He has a photo of me in his phone? That really surprised me.
Emerald escaped from Zion’s hand and came back, staring at me. “You’re very pretty.”
“Thank you. You’re very pretty too.” I said. Emerald was actually very pretty. She had a glorious ginger red hair, her face so small and her green eyes like gems.
“Now I understand why my brother got so smitten by you.” Emerald giggled and occupied Zion’s chair. Zion was standing behind the chair. “Can I add you on Facebook, Claire? I want to be your friend.” Emerald continued.
“Yeah, of course. I would love to have you as my friend too.” I answered. She seemed so sweet.
“Great! I can tell you everything about Zion.”
“No way, Emmie.” Zion put his arm around Emerald’s shoulders, cuddling her.
A young girl came inside the room, carrying a stuff toy.
“You’re sleepy now? Huh?” Zion talked to the young girl and picked her up. “Claire, meet Crystal, our youngest sister.”
“Hi Crystal. She’s so cute.” I waved at her. She was about four or five years old.
“Say hello to Claire.” Zion said at Crystal who was just staring at me, then hid her face at Zion’s neck. “She’s a very shy girl.”
“She’s not. Once she’s use to seeing you, she’s very talkative. Always talking about Moana and other Disney princesses.” Emerald laughed. She was fun, talking with so many hand gestures. It was fascinating just looking at her.
Later, Crystal said in a whisper. “Hello Claire.”
Zion kissed Crystal’s head and said. “Good girl.”
“Hi Crystal. Nice meeting you.” I answered.
Crystal hugged Zion, hiding her face.
“I think she’s sleepy.” Emerald said, caressing Crystal’s back. “Zion said you can sing well. Can you sing for us Claire. Please.”
“Oh!” I exclaimed. “I only sing in the bathroom.”
“Awwee. I would love to hear you sing. Just a little please….”
“Emerald, you’re embarrassing Claire.” Zion said.
“Please… please… please…” Crystal turned to me and also asked.
“Oh no… sorry Claire.” Zion’s voice was apologetic.
“It’s okay, Zion. I love to sing for them.” I said and he nodded.
Both girls were so adorable and I liked them. I wanted to make them happy by granting their request.
♪ I’ve been staring at the edge of the water ♫
Long as I can remember
Never really knowing why ♪
I wish I could be the perfect daughter♯
But I come back to the water♫♭
No matter how hard I try ♭
♪ Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know where I cannot go ♪
Where I long to be
See the line where the sky meets the sea? ♫
It calls me♯
And no one knows
How far it goes ♪
♪ If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me♫
One day I’ll know
If I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go ♪♪
The following day, Zion arrived at one in the afternoon.
Darn! What’s wrong with me.
I still got mesmerized every time I see him. I guessed, it would take too long for me to get used to seeing him.
He gave me a red rose. He said he picked it up himself in their back garden.
And when he asked, “Claire, will you be my girlfriend?”
I was lost for words. I just stared at him. The pit of my stomach was tingling and my knees were shaking.
“Claire, will you be my girlfriend?” He asked me again.
“Yes.” I said in a whisper.
I was shocked when he suddenly kissed me on my lips.
I was still recovering from the shock of my first kiss when the doorbell rang.
I went to the front door and opened it. I got a second shock when I saw who it was.
“Who’s that Claire?” I heard Zion asked behind me.
“Zion? Claire? What’s going on here?” Harry said.
