Boys

[Secrets and Romance]

.

(Shit!)

β€” Kendra’s POV β€”

“Cole?” I called as I got really close.

“Hey” he cooed and I sat down on the bed beside

him.

 

“How’re you feeling?” I asked starring at him.

“I’m okay I guess” he replied.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We stayed muted for a long while before I finally

spoke up.

 

“Cole, I heard you helped in finding my parents. I

called mommy and she confirmed it.”

“So, that was why you knew about me meeting

them without telling you. I thought it seems strange but now it’s all making sense to me.”

“Cole, thank you and I’m sorry.”

 

“Thank you for helping me even when I gave up on them. Sorry because I’m someone that only causes you nothing but pain but the truth is that I do care for you a lot and wouldn’t want you to keep on

drinking.”

 

“You might kill yourself with that, please can you at least stop drinking?” I asked and he nodded slowly.

“I have no option do I? And about your parents I’ll

kill Nick for you telling you” he replied and I

chuckled.

“Why don’t you want me to no Cole? Huh! Why do

you wanna keep it all to yourself?’ I questioned.

“Then, I didn’t want you to continue pretending

towards me about your feelings and secondly I

 

 

 

 

wanted you to leave Salvador’s mansion. That is

the main reason to be truthful” he revealed.

I chuckled again.

“You know you’re something else but cole, um.. I

don’t know if I should be saying this but there is

someone out there for you.”

 

“She loves you more…”

 

“Are you talking about that your friend?” He cut me in smirking.

 

“Come on cole, can’t you just pretend not to no till

I’m done” I frowned and slapped his leg.

 

“Ouch! What was that for? I’m only…”

 

“Just give her a chance” I cut him in now.

He scoffed again.

“She’s not as pretty as you” he replied looking

elsewhere.

 

“Cole? Stop it, I’m not kidding alright. Please let’s

get serious” I begged.

“Well, I don’t no. I still like you and don’t think its

going anyway anytime soon” he replied now gazing downward to his leg.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Cole, I know but please just…”

“I will, I’ll try because it’s you. I know you can’t

deceive me so I’ll give it a shot” he cut in again and I smiled.

“Thank you and sorry. But trust me I do love and

care for you a whole lot” I said spreading my arms

apart to describe it.

He smiled back.

“No need to be sorry ken. I understand everything

well” he smiled more broadly.

The door opened and Rico came in and stood

behind me.

“Hey, what are you two saying?” Rico asked

akimbo.

“I was just confessing my feelings to her and I’m

also letting her know that I won’t leave her” Cole

replied making me confused.

I turned and looked at Rico and he has an angry

look on but he surprised me by laughing.

Even cole laughed.

“What was that?” I asked now on my feet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Are you using such things to jokes?” I asked

starring from cole to Rico.

 

“Come on ken” Rico laughed and wrapped one of

his arms around my neck.

I scoffed and remove his arm and walked out.

 

Rico’s POV

I laughed again as she left.

“Yea, looking at it now it seems you two look good

together” cole said making me turn my attention to

him.

 

“You don’t have to say that to make me feel better you no” I cooed taking a sit by the side of the room.

‘I’m saying the truth, damn” he replied.

“Cole” I called.

“Yes” he answered.

“Can you promise me one thing?” I asked.

 

“Promise you’ll never keep a secret from me no

matter if it’ll hurt me or not. Can you do that?” I

added.

He sighed and nodded.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Yea, I promise” he smiled and I nodded.

“Second thing you’ve got to promise me is to

always be happy and let go of your drinking act

cause I’ve done that. Not entirely tho I can still take a shot without anyone knowing” I said almost

whispering and he laughed.

“Okay I’ll try alright. I’ll try” he replied.

And I heard someone name in your conversation.

 

“Yea kora, that girl that works for your parents. I

don’t really understand them tho but I heard she

loves me” he replied and I laughed.

“So? Are you gonna be getting married to her?” I

teased and he eyed me.

“I barely no her and I won’t be speaking about her if not for Kendra’s sake but I’ll try and get married to her then” he joked and we both laughed.

The door opened revealing Nick.

Cole’s mood changed instantly as he walked in.

“What do you want? Aren’t you getting out?” Cole

asked immediately.

 

 

 

 

“Cole, I just came to check up on you. Mom called

and…she asked me of you” Nick replied.

“Tell her I’m good and better off without you” cole

replied him.

“Um…okay” Nick replied starring at the floor.

“What are you doing? Aren’t you leaving? Have you apologized to Rico for your stupid acts?” Cole

questioned.

“Well, I’m not gonna be apologizing to anyone” Nick replied.

“Have you gone nuts?” Cole half yelled.

 

“Until you forgive me am not apologizing to him” he insisted.

“Then go. Out!!” Cole yelled but he stayed still.

“Hey, calm down bro. Leave him be, his still your

brother” I chipped in.

“And Nick doesn’t have to apologize cause he was the one that made me come to you so I’ve forgiven for that” I said.

Cole rolled his eyes and laid down properly.

 

 

 

 

“You can stand and watch me sleep then” he said

referring to Nick and I smiled.

He knows how to punish him. Nick was already in

tears but he cared less.

“I’ll get going now” I announced standing.

“You two solve this shit before tomorrow” I added

and left.

 

******

 

Few hours later I was inside Kendra’s room with

her.

 

We came home together and I decided to bring her to her room and now I’m finding it hard to leave.

She sat in front of the mirror and parked her hair up trying to unhook her necklace but couldn’t.

“I need a hand here Rico” she beckoned on me and I went to her and started unhooking the necklace

from the back but I wasn’t concentrated on it but on her exposed back.

Damn it looks so fresh and soft to the hands.

I could eat it as meat.

“Hey!” She called and turned to look at me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“What are you doing?” She asked starring at me

and our faces were just inches apart.

So I did it. I cupped her cheeks and kissed her.
