^•^•^•^ ENDY`S POV ^•^•^•^
I was already dressed in my white attire waiting for Selene to get dressed I didn’t know what was making her delay maybe Wendy’s asking her dumb questions again..
Suddenly she started coming down the stairs and I froze she looked.. She was perfect.. She was.. Damn it words couldn’t describe her.. The white dress glued to her body like it was made for her, and it brought out her curves I didn’t know she had cause she just wears baggy gowns.. Her hair was in ponytail and i just felt like grabbing her, cause she was just so beautiful, her lips was glossed with red shiny lip gloss and wow I am just speechless.. I found my self staring at her but she waves her hand in front of my face and I realised myself..
“sorry I was uhm..you look good” I quickly said
“thanks” she replied and we both walked outside to my car,
“just so you know thanks for accompanying me” I said, and mean it..
“yeah sure” she replied and I opened the car door for her and while she was about to get in she almost lost balance but luckily she held my palm, thank goodness she’s smart.. But while our palms I felt something.. Something I haven’t felt before in my entire life..
It felt rare, it gave me bubbles but I can’t describe the feeling
Selene got in and I closed the door I turned and saw my sister at the door she blew me a kiss and waved..
I got into the driver seat and drove to Kim’s company, my dad’s best friend and business partner..
We arrived at the Kim’s company and Selene’s eyes widen when she saw the company, then how would she react when she sees my dad’s company.. “come-on” I tell her I glanced at her hands wishing to hold them so I could feel that feeling again..
We were both walking inside when I stopped and turned
“we have to lock our elbows together cause it’s the casual way to enter formals” I said and she blinked rapidly before agreeing and I hooked my elbow around hers and we both walked inside..
The formal, thank goodness was a small gathering with people of the same classes thinking they’re above one another envying their neighbours but covering it up with a fake smile I know my dad has many enemies here so I better play it cool..
Everyone was in white and the first person I saw was Mr Kim himself and he was with his wife Cordelia..
“Ah..Endymion!” he exclaimed seeing me and Selene and I walked up to him and my gaze went from me to Selene and so did his wife..
Great! One thing about bringing a pretty girl to a party..
“and may i ask who this is?” Mr Kim asked and I smiled
“oh this is Selene” I said
“Selene what a nice name for a beautiful young lady” he said and Selene smiled and said “thank you”
“anyway I heard your father couldn’t make it, but send my regards to him If he actually doesn’t make it here” Mr Kim said and I nod..
“and the kids are also asking for you” Mrs Kim said to me and I nod and they walked away, when she’s talking about the kids she means her children.. Which are Hilda, Mary and Henry, two girls and a boy, Hilda would be in her early thirties I think while Mary’s just seventeen and Henry, Henry’s the same age as my brothers and also their best friend they’re all clocking twenty three..
I glanced at Selene and she was busy observing every where with her pretty eyes, some eyes were on us or maybe Selene.. I guess, I looked straight up and immediately catch a familiar smile
It was that of Hilda, Mr Kim’s first daughter.. She suddenly tapped someone who happened to be Henry, her brother and they both walked up to us smiling..
“Endy, oh it’s been ages it’s so nice to see again” Hilda said and gave me a small one handed hug, cause Selene was beside me ..
“hey..” Henry who was behind Hilda said to me and I waved back, Selene who was looking at her side suddenly noticed I was talking to someone and turned and Henry eyebrows suddenly arched.
“and who may I ask is this?” Hilda asked with her gummy smile referring to Selene..
“this- is Selene my friend,” I said, you don’t expect me to address her as the house keeper..
Selene smiled at both Henry and Hilda, and Hilda said “well selene nice to meet you”
“nice to meet you too” Selene said
“and I’m Henry” Henry said and steps forward and then shook hands with Selene and for some reason I didn’t like that..
“nice to meet you Henry” Selene said and Henry smiled..
“anyways what about those three trouble makers” Hilda asked reverting to my brothers
“oh them! They’re okay and still troublesome” I said and Hilda and I laughed, “well then wherever they are tell them I said hi” she said and I nod and then she walked away .. I wasn’t surprised she didn’t ask about Wendy cause two of them are like frenemies, they laugh today and fight tomorrow.. And they’re best friends, can you believe that?
“so.. You guys are just friends right? No strings attached?” Henry suddenly said and I shot him a dangerous glare..
“don’t make this awkward and embarrassing for yourself and just leave” I said and he rolled his eyes
“F’ you Endy” Henry said angrily and walked away, that’s more like it..
I know I’m pretty uncomfortable with people but right now, this moment I feel free I feel open like I could get along with everybody here without, getting irritated or bored.. Wait! Is it because of Selene, I decided to take a quick glance at her maybe watch her observe the party with he pretty eyes flickering around, my gaze went from the floor and to her face and I was surprised to see her staring at me..
Our eyes got locked with each other’s and I couldn’t look away it was like I was seeing all of me inside of her, her golden eyes held so much beauty, so much power and so much happiness,
What is this? Am I falling in love or am I just imagining things for myself, the idea of kissing her came across my mind but I suddenly realised my self and blinked and she flinched too and turned to her front..
“so.. Do you want to get a cup of wine?” I asked
“yes please” she said and cleared her throat..
We both walked together to a bartender who stood still at the bar area waiting for someone to order something cause it looks like he’s kind of sleepy, Selene and I arm’s were still locked together and it seems like she didn’t want to let go and neither do I.. Luckily for the bartender Selene and I walked up to him and he gave us the most Fake smile he could find..
“what can I get for you two lovely couples?” he asked
“oh um.. We’re not a couple” Selene suddenly said and the man tilts his head in confusion but didn’t ask anything anymore..
“anyways I’m Finn” he said dryly
“just bring a bottle of heavenly nectar and we’ll be fine” I said and he nods and turned to the wines behind him
“so.. have you drank wine before?” I asked teasingly
“no” she said plainly staring as the barman pour our wine into glass cups and threw ice-blocks inside them..
“well you’ll love this” I said and handed her one of the glass cup filled with wine, “thanks” she said and looked away and taking a sip out of the wine and then sat down on the bar stood.. And so did I..
I dropped my palm on the counter and tapped the wooden slippery surface with my fingers as I gulped down my entire glass careful not to drop any on my shirts.. I dropped my cup and gave Finn a look to pour me another glass..
I glanced at Selene and saw her staring at my palms that was slowly tapping the bar counter following the rhythm of the music.. Why is she staring at my hands, she quickly looked away when Finn handed me my drink and in another glance I dried the cup..
The formal wasn’t too bad like I imagined but I just couldn’t stop thinking about what I felt earlier with Endy, it made me felt like entering him and finding out something new, something adventurous.. I suddenly became curious once I was just hating his guts but now I feel like I’ve known him forever, that I couldn’t help but stare at his face when he talked, wishing for an answer to come out from it ..
Why did I feel that way? I wouldn’t be curious about it if it didn’t felt good, it felt amazingly great and I want more of where that feeling came from, it’s like mixing chocolate cake with a pile of flavoured brownies mixed with gummy bears and strawberries, it’s a sweet feeling and who wouldn’t want that..
When he caught me staring at him I couldn’t move cause it was like I should reach out and burst or something cause that moment felt right, it felt thrilling and it was magically fascinating.. His green gloomy eyes suddenly gleamed as I looked at it deeply, and suddenly it was like I could see him and no body else, my heart starts to beat fast, faster than normal and his husky eyes pierced mine, but all of a sudden he blinked and I realised my self flinching in reality.. And that’s when he said we should get wines… And while we walked I realised we both have our elbows clenched together and for reason it did feel welcoming
Drinking wines with him wasn’t suddenly easy either cause while he drank he tapped his manly hand on top of the bar-counter and I just stared at them wishing I could hold them and relive that feeling I did this evening but he’d think I’m weird by just grabbing his hand so it’s better to just act normal..
The formal ended after Mr. Kim gave a speech about some stuff I wasn’t paying any attention to..
While we got outside Endy told me he’ll drive me home since its nighttime already, I agreed with him and told him my address cause he asked for it..
The drive to my house was so long and I remained quiet in the car not really thinking about anything but “that feeling”
.. Finally!! We got to my house and he parked in front if the building and I opened the car-door before he could come out and open it and I grabbed my purse and walked out.. He walked out to and stared at me and so did I..
“so goodnight?” he said
“goodnight” I replied and my voice comes out low, and walked inside not wanting to look back.. Immediately I closed the door, seconds later I heard his car screech and drive away.
My mom wasn’t back yet and I sighed and walked upstairs to my room and I plopped down on my bed and the word I sighed out was “Endy..
