………
Xoxoxo. …….

I probably had a million thoughts running through my mind in like one second…
It felt like a feast of bees buzzing in my chain of thoughts and I couldn’t even pick out one to process…..

First off. .am sure the one that would be going through a girl’s head at this point would be….
“Am I looking a mess”?
Crap!!!

Vividly remembering I had to take off the dress I was wearing to trade it in for the loose fitted top and short I had on now.
‘Crap!!!
“I really do think I look a mess”
“Yeah MiniMes!!!. …you all can laugh now….laugh is on me now”…..she laughs hysterically….in her mind…

“Darn! I bet my hair is in a flux of disarray…?”…With all the head twirling from side to side , up and down…Ofcos it’s a blawdy tangled mess too.

“Shoot!!! My face…..*mentally screaming…and looking for a mirror in my mind’s eye…*…
“did I smear my makeup when I took of my dress?”

“Or was it when I laid face down on the bed…?
“I knew it….its all smeared and I look like a zombie in a wrong makeup gig.”….

“Oh lawd why me???..
..
“I tried my best to look my darn best…and now…I look like a retarded mess…and they are staring…

“Nicky and him…”….Both laughing at me now…..
“Yeah go on…laugh…I really don’t care…..*she shrugs*……

“plus it doesnt matter…”

“Erm…”…..*Ahem*….clears throat…..
“Rebs?
*my conscience calling out to me*

“……I am going to put on a smile and shut the door in their faces…”
I was still talking ..to myself apparently.

“Rebecca?…..*that darn voice again..calling out*

“…..well maybe in just his face for lying and pulling that cheap stunt…Nicky can come In coz she lives here….but….

“Rebecca brown. …Gaddamnit!!!!!

“….him can stay out…
“WHAT MINIMES!!!!…..”Can’t you all gimme a second to vent….jezzz….what what  what???????

“Er you might want to compose yourself. ….
“Your jaw has been hanging open for the better half of one minute since you opened that door…..so…….you know….get your shit together…..*A mental jab to my side*

“Ouch! That hurts!!”

“That’s the idea”.

Oh darn…..

Xoxoxo xoxo

“Hello”…Nicky was saying. ..”took you for ever to open up?………
“Look who I brought?……she continued.

And the dude was smiling. I need to wipe that smug off his face. Shit!

I blinked twice..

Nicky comes in…while she passes me she says…just for my earing…..”Smile silly”……”You look as though you are about to shoot daggers with your eyes”

“Well I am”….I reply back in gritted teeth…
She feigned surprise ….I rolled my eyes…she laughs and walks all the way in…

He was still standing there…With the cutest smile on his face…
“Gosh I love your smile”……in my mind….”but it’s your fault I look like a mess so eat shit”……

He was still smiling.
“Er ok…I know you’ll love to admire me all day but can I come in?….He blinks twice….showing all his teeths at once in the broadest of smiles….

“No!”….mean stare down. .or mean stare up since he was so tall….

“REBECCA! !!…….from inside the room…probably Nicky….or was it in my head.

“Yeah sure ofcos”……”come right in”…
I say forcing a smile.

Xoxoxo xo. ….

I offered him the chair… and nothing else.
Not because I was mean and upset but really because Nicky ate all my biscuits and chocolate bars…leaving just one which I nibbled on and a few drops of juice….If I had known he was coming I probably would have kept that one for him.

Plus it was still raining and going out to get a thing or two would get me all drenched. …and it was blawdy cold outside. Maybe next time chap. But since you pulled that stunt. Am glad I got nothing to offer you…*sticks mental tongue out at him.*..

Nicky was lying on the bed and pretending to read a book. He was staring at me and I was pretending to flick through my phone…reading nothing in particular.

…….
Sebastian needed to burst out in laughter.
He was doing a bad job of holding it all in….because he kept smiling and she looked as though she was going to strangle him with her bedsheets or something.

When she opened the door and her words caught in her mouth…hanging open….He was like….”Damn I knew I still have that kinda effect “…

Ofcos she wasn’t expecting him and he wanted to catch her unawares.

He had used a minute to take her look all in…

Her hair apparently had left some of the others and danced around the nape of her neck…and some threatened to cover her eyes…He almost felt the urge to use his hand to brush it away from her face and tuck it behind her ear.

He never liked girls with too much makeup on…made them look as if they were going for a circus show…Full makeup and all….but hers…was light. .”Good”…maybe she rested her face on her hand…her eyebrow seemed abit smeared….but no damage done…he liked her look…didn’t care enough about the makeup. He bets she looks way better without it.

She had an oval shaped face..pointed nose…Full lips…those lips tho…painted with a dull red lipstick…He recollects himself…mulan comes to mind. He smiles.
She looks up at him sharply…oh those dagger eyes again…yep….she so wants to kill him.

He liked that he made her Uncomfortable. ..she probably likes him too. Even if she hadn’t said anything to that regard when he told her. She avoided the subject. He allowed it to pass.

There was something sexy about girls wearing a shirt or a top slightly too big…maybe a man’s. And her look right now appealed to him. It showed off a little of her right shoulder….He wished he could touch it just a little too.
Her shorts were short..extreme though and tight…it went well with the loose top.

He knew he wouldn’t have caught her like this. .abit disarrayed if he had come as planned. She would have put on her best look….just as planned.

But now…like this…was a sight he would always want to see when he closes his eyes to sleep. She was beautiful…in her imperfections.

But now…enough of the piercing looks and smiles…

Xoxoxo xoxo. …

“You know you could just hit me ???….He tells her

“Er why would I want to?….I gave him a puzzled stare….questionable.

“Well because you want to. It’s ok…i swear ….I can take it…..you know our bodies are made to take stuffs way stronger than a girl’s punch right..”…..He winks

“Trust me…I don’t hit like a girl”….I retorted

Somewhere in the room someone scoffs
I rolled my eyes. He smiled.

“I really don’t! !!……I said again

“I didnt say anything” he says raising both hands…

“Me neither”…..Nicky joined.

“Whatever!!!!”……I resigned.

Nicky looks over at  both of us. “Rebecca will soon go quiet now…and probably Sebastian might just don’t know what to say again”…..she shakes her head…and rolls over to my side…facing Sebastian.

“So…do you have a girlfriend?…..

I was shocked. Forward Nicky. I Jabbed her side. She removes my hand and hits it.
“Do you?..”

“Well…No!”…..

“Had?”

“Awhile ago…last year…”

“Hm?…

“So do you like my friend??”….
This time I pinched her.
“What da hell Nicky? ?

She jumped up …preventing me from doing her more harm.

“She has the answer to that”….he said referring to me…….I blushed.

Nicky looks at me. Not satisfied but intended to hear it for herself.

Sebastian clues in and then says something in a coded sign…which ofcos Nicky understood. And smiled.

I was confused. “What was that?”..I asked….looking from one to the other.

“Join our Alpha team and we would tell you.”……they both smiled proudly. Seriously…a coup?…great!!

The rain had stopped and the sun was shinning….

“He said that he has fallen for you”……she winks…

I rolled my eyes. He laughed. They both laughed. They was a knock on the door and Nicky was called..sounded like Anita ….Nicky opened the door…Looked back in and said she would be back…and disappeared behind the door.

Alone.
With him.
Would this get any more awkward?

Over the social network I could talk about a million things in like five minutes. Right now…I was as blank as a blackboard. Shit!!

“So….Rebs…” he was saying….”…I think you look all pretty messed up.”….

I threw him the pillow…trying to hide my blush. He caught it and threw it back on the bed. I docked.

“I wasn’t trying to hit you”….He says
“Am a gentleman like that.”..

He shifted the chair…brings it close to me…facing me…I probably would have gotten up but my legs felt weak all of a sudden…I looked up and was staring into deep blue sea of eyes…that’s why I didnt notice his hand go up and brush my hair to the back…tugging the lingerings behind my ear…I shifted. He stopped me.

“We’ve talked alot for these past few weeks…I probably didn’t know what to expect or do while am all close up and personal with you but….I haven’t stopped thinking about you the whole time.”….

“Whats there to think about???…..

“Plenty…!!!…for one…
“How I would love to see you laugh and hear the sound of it!
“When you smile…If it was going to make my heart skip…?
He laughs…”at least I know what your eyes look like when you want to run a truck over me”

I had to smile.

He did a pretend…heart attack holding his chest…

“See….it feels as though it’s going to explode out of my chest”…

I playfully jabs his chest..He caught my hand on the second time and held it.

“I figured my hand will cover yours…”…covering his with mine. Turning it over and touching the inside of my palm; with his finger…..”I knew your inside palm would be soft…..I still wanted to feel them anyways”
I pulled my hand away. Uncomfortable. He smiled. That damn smile again…With those eyes. Am dead.

I had to think of something fast…
“Er ….Sebastian?
“Yep”…He says..relaxing back on the chair.

Good enough room for me to breath.
“So how was field work today…what did you guys do????…..I spewed out….”Nicky usually not much of a talker on that aspect…”………

“Seriously Reb”???…….my MiniMes asked.   I forced a “shut up”…through my head.

“Well….We had to make a drilling machine…couple back some lose screws…gave us a run down on some mining stuff…that’s why we had to go to the field. ..

“Sounds pretty tasking”… I said…musing.
“Doesnt really….” he was saying….
“just makes you fast on your feet and alert…you have to know what to do and when to do it…you work as a team….you missing something might cause the next guy his leg or an arm…stuffs like that….”

“Oh”…..was my only exclamation.

I looked out the window and saw Nicky going outside the gate. I called out to her. Picked my bag and got my wallet out.

“Gimme a sec”….I told him.

I ran to the door..opened it and stepped outside..I gave Nicky my wallet and told her to get cookies, chocolate and juice.  ….I told her I wasn’t going to give her any….she stuck her tongue out…saying i could try…I pinched her side…she runs off…holding her side. .as though in pain.

Back in the room. He hadn’t moved…
I sat  back on the bed..away from him… this time.

I brought up more topics and we started talking. I felt more relaxed.

For one…He was an easy person to talk to.
Two…He wasn’t a duller..
Three….He was trying to take the topic back to “him liking me”
Four…… i always tried to be evasive and brought up even more jist that had no relation to “Boy likes girl”…
I hoped he didn’t realise it.

Fifteen minutes later….Nicky comes back in bearing gifts…and threw herself on the bed…handing me back my wallet.
“Thanks”…. i muttered shoving it back into my bag.

“No thank you”….Nicky replied…winking and helping herself to my cookies.
” BITCH! !! GO GET YOURS”….

“Ofcos…go ahead have some”….. i smiled shaking my head. Nothing works with this girl.

I took out three glasses…and poured out juice for us three…handing Nicky one and Sebastian the other…it was cold so….He winced when he took the glass from me.

“Thanks Rebecca”…

I smiled….and mouthed…”You are welcome.”… satisfied.

“So what have you guys been talking about?…Nicky asked between mouth fulls.

“Jezzz can Nicky mind her biz for once. Damn girl!!…lemme gag her please please please???…..My MiniMes begged.

“Maybe later”….Inbetween stiff smile.

“Us us us….”…Sebastian says…..winking at me.

She rolled her eyes. “Boring”…

I had laid back on the bed..and sat up almost immediately. ..silly me hadn’t offered him any cookies.

He was afar off…Nicky had again delved into her thousands of questions…mostly personal and he was answering…some of them I even gaped at both of them…couldn’t he just tell her…”Its personal???…
And couldn’t Nicky just not be Nicky for once and steer clear off some topics…especially “sex related”

Atleast he was decent enough not to give her details. I need to tie her to a tree and thrash her.

I opened the pack of cookies…and offered it to him. He didnt stretch out his hand to collect…instead he opened his mouth indicating I should feed him.
I took one…indicating I was going to do just that but threw it into my mouth instead and mouthed…”yum!!!”…With all the gestured intended….meaning the cookies where to die for.

He feigned hurt. I shrugged. I offered again. He shook his head. And opened his mouth….This time I patted the bed…before i could blink he stood up and came to me….and sat down ..facing me…mouth open…

I chocked on my cookies..and coughed a little. He laughs. Pats my back..
“There there!!!….handing me his glass of juice….

“No i have mine”….I tried pushing it away….
“What?….”If yours was a mile away and mine was closer and you were going to die from your cough…wouldn’t you chunk down pride and drink from mine????”….

Good point.

So I did exactly that.
I said …..”Thank you”….Shyly.

“Am your super hero baby”….He said.

I nearly had another feats of coughs…
“Oops sorry”….He patted my back again…I shrugged him off. It Was giving me goosebumps. Damn him to shickles.

I realised then that I had a stopped grimancing to his accent. Good.

After my chest settled.
I picked up the pack of cookies from where it fell doing my small feats.
I took out one….put it in my mouth.
And chewed. It tasted good…i closed my eyes savouring the taate. Oblivious of his presence.

Nicky was still talking and he was barely concentrating on giving her answers…He probably was staring…maybe…because he wasn’t answering her as much as earlier. Good.

I took another and put it in my mouth. I had a feeling he was watching every movement…start to finish…
I took the third….then I smiled…I looked at him…Nicky was showing him a picture in her phone…I was disappointed….I thought he was watching me. I had a new nickname for her…”Nicky-the-buzz-kill”!….
“Remind me MiniMes to tell her latest ok??
“Aye aye captain “….they replied in unison.

Oh well…i tapped him…He turned…I had the cookie…indicting for him to open up. .He did.. I put it in his mouth…He mimicked my gesture…With his hands grasping his chest…head thrown backwards…rolled eyes in…in supposed ecstasy….and said….”Yum”!!!!!

I couldn’t help laughing…He joined me.

And that’s how I ended up feeding him and me the entire cookies…even his juice. Was fun…his expressions..The expectant face…and I loved watching his mouth close..The movement and then when he chewed…He did all this staring into my face…I couldn’t break away..felt  like I was a puppet and he was the puppeteer. .. I was transfixed..safe for my hand movements…The feeding. Damn those blue eyes.

At some point Nicky  looked at us…when the questions she was asking was coming in in slow replies..by then…I was done feeding..and we were sharing a silent joke that had both of us laughing ..my head on his knee he had up…my hand in his…and I was playing with his fingers. …she looks at me and was like ..

“Rebs…seriously”….”What are you doing?….

I gave her back the look of….”Girl I have no idea”…..and I ignored her and concentrated on his palm…his fingers…The knee I rested my head on…facing him….looking into those eyes…watching him talk…listening to the sound of his voice…and his unconscious movement of his hand touching my face…my hair…my earlobe. ..his joke…his laugher…

I had gone from the shy girl…nevous..Uncomfortable girl…around this guy…

To dauntless. Less shy and somewhat bold. I didnt hide my blush when he said something nice about me. I relaxed and basked in the moment. I even reached out to wipe the cookie crumbs from his shirt where it had fallen.

I spoke ….looking directly at him…He said he liked that. I didnt stop him when he pulled my nose. He even laughed when i told him his nose looked about alienish. ..compared to his face…He flared them nostrils out for me….what a sight…my fingers could disappear into those huge holes….

Reminded me of little red riding hood with the Wolf..
“Oh grandma what big nose you got”…I say mimicking a little girls voice.

“The better to smell you with”….He replied…pulling me to himself…buried his head at the nape of my neck.. ..nuzzeling…and making funny sounds…..it tickled so I tried pulling away…wriggling free…laughing and pleading…He didnt stop…

“Oh red”….”you smell good”….He said still nuzzling….

“That’s not in the scripts”….I said…laugher in my voice and tears in my eyes. that happens alot in my continuous feats of laughter….

‘Well….am wolf…so I can say anything plus…your nose looks appetising. ..”…He caught both my hands in his and pulled me even higher up…trying to get a hold of my face…and nip my nose….

“it would be yummy….yum yum reddy nosey…bhahahahahaha”….He laughed wickedly.

I was laughing so hard…and begging him and still in the process of wriggling free…and hiding my face …turning from side to side to avoid his face from colliding with mine…He was stronger so he already had my legs pinned…I only had control of my upper body….my hands had begun to laugh making my struggles weak…..

I realised he had stopped making those funny sounds..and the hold on my hand had lessened. ..He was about half a inch from my face…staring at me…no my lips….

I figured if he listened abit more…He would notice my heart beating like a million times faster than normal.

I couldn’t stare at his eyes up close like that without sinking in…it was strange…the pull…I realised the Sea of blue was drawing closer… like a rush of deep blue sea…With the waves and tides…and I wasn’t scared that I would drown…I was at the shore…legs soaked in the water..feeling the cold surface of the beach sands…I closed my eyes……I felt the bridge of my nose…With another equally soft…Both cold…..

Nicky choose that minute to  intrude….
“Hey guys”….
“Check out this video of Taylor Swift featuring kendrick….”Bad Blood”….”kinda cool”….she says…breaking us apart and shoving the phone In our faces….

“Watched it on youtube”..

We took the phone…and watched.
Was a cool video..With the portray of characters.
“Would make a cool movie if someone thinks to produce it…” …He was saying…but my mind as elsewhere..

“Wow…!!!”….”that was close” I muttered to myself.

Saved by Taylor. Nice going Nicky.

“SHIT”…Sebastian exclamation checking his watch…and looked outside. .I followed his eyes…it was dark..pitch black.
I diverted my eyes to the clock on the table close to the picture of a ballerina.

It was 10:55pm.

Damn!!! It’s late and he stays on the other side of town.

He looked sad when he looked at me. And then he smiled. Gave me his hand …I took it and he pulled me up.

“Walk me to the gate???”…He asked.

“Sure why not!”…I reply…putting my feet to the ground.

“Bye Sebastian.  Hope to see you again!…Nicky says…punching his arm.

“Bye Dude.”…He tells Nicky….she looks up aghast. He winks…she smiled.

We held hands till we reached the gate. Now I avoided his eyes. Did he realise we were extremely face close…maybe a second longer and …..

“I had fun today” Sebastian tells me booting me out of my thoughts..rubbing my hand…

“Me three”…I said…smiling. He laughed too.

At the gate now. He still didn’t let go of my hand. I was staring at them instead of him…He raised it up…I followed the movement…He took them to his mouth…and brushed it with his lips.

I probably turned pink for real with all the blushing.

“I hate to go…but I would love to watch you leave”…He says….his eyes sparkling…

I knew I have heard that line before…from a movie. I just couldn’t place it.
Why would I?.. .when my head was filled with blue sparkling eyes…an accent and the cutest of smiles.  Ofcos I wasn’t thinking straight…so I said the only thing that I could think of…

“Can you find your way.. it pretty dark?…

“Don’t worry….If I get mugged…I will call out your name..and you will appear and whisk me from all dangers and I will gladly die in your sweet arms”… He pulled my nose…I wriggled it and laughed.

“Be serious MrSab..”…I blinked thrice.

“Am good …I got night vision like a bat”…”Go on…go back in…its chilly outside..”….

“Ok”…I shifted on my toes…..”bye you”…I started to pull away…He still held my hand so I felt the pull back…With a tiny tug…I came crushing into him…

“Not before a hug…”…He said…covering me with both hands…in a bear huge. .and squeezed…I hugged him back…

He let’s me go…just slightly and kissed my forehead…then let’s me go fully..and pushes me gently towards the gate….

“You better go in now before I change my mind and do what I have been dreaming of doing the entire day….especially when I had you pinned …..”……

My heart caught in my chest. I squeezed his hand…waved…and walked in…not before turning to see him watching me…till I disappeared behind the gate. Then he started to move away…hands in his pocket…head held high…a smile planted on his face.

I knew that because I came back outside and watched him go.
I had liked him back…but I wasn’t going to tell him just yet.

I closed the gate and beckoned for the security to lock it…

Then it hit me…

That line I thought  I had heard before…was from a movie I watched and loved..because it had two of my favourite actors…

“FaceOff”….
And it was John Travolta (the bad guy in the good guy’s body)…saying it to Nicholas cage’s wife…( the good guy in the bad guy’s body)…….After smothering her in a kiss and a smack to her butt.

I smiled.
