Rose

 

He held his neck like he was struggling for breathe.

 

I watched him confused at what was going on really.

 

He stopped panting heavily and ran out with his car keys

 

* What’s wrong with him? *

 

I asked nobody in particular.

 

I turned and my eyes met with Lucian’s sitting at the corner he usually sits.

 

 

He was looking so dressed that one would mistake him for a famous celebrity. I walked to him standing akimbo

 

* What are you doing here? And dressed like that * I questioned.

 

He smiled and sat up properly bringing the his right leg down from the left. * Sit, I want to do something with you *

 

He said and pulled my hand to fall beside him on the sofa at this section of the restaurant.

 

I shifted a bit from him and sat properly

 

* What is it? *

 

I asked.

 

He brought something from his pocket and it was a smartphone,

 

it looked completely brand new.

 

* Where did you get that? *

 

asked

 

I bought it *

 

He replied and tried to take a picture with me.

 

* Wait, where did you get that amount of money? *

 

I questioned cause the phone he was holding was the latest edition brand.

 

 

I did some little work today so I got the money to buy this, let’s just forget that and take this *

 

He explained and raised the phone to take a selfie.

 

I smiled lightly and he took the picture.

 

I got up ready to leave

 

* I’m hungry *

 

He said but I didn’t turn back to answer him.

 

I went into the kitchen and told Jane to serve him some snacks.

 

 

 

I tied my apron and started chopping some vegetables for a new recipe I wanted to try.

 

* He’s handsome *

 

Jane sneaked up on me, whispering into my ear.

 

I chuckled

 

* You can finally accept this one from all your numerous admirers * She said again

 

* I’m working Jane you better get back to work or your done for * I said and she left in a hurry.

 

I was happy I wasn’t serving today but in the kitchen.

 

Atleast today I’ll get home earlier hopefully.

 

It was past 8pm already and I was about leaving for home.

 

I looked around and I couldn’t find Lucian anywhere.

 

He didn’t tell me he was leaving, where could he have done to this late?.

 

I halted a taxi home and trekked the remaining street.

 

I climbed the stairs to my apartment and opened the door.

 

I went in and met him sitting on the couch, I closed the door and went in. * You didn’t tell me you were leaving *

 

said

 

I’m sorry, I was tired and I didn’t see you anymore * He replied and I pulled my shoes

 

I work as a chef, I only help in serving once in a while *

 

told him.

 

Too bad, I will not see you more often *

 

He replied and smiled. I looked at him and sat on the couch opposite him. * Don’t you find this strange? *

 

I asked and chuckled weirdly at how I’m staying with a total stranger in my apartment alone.

 

* You mean us living together? *

 

He cracked and looked at his intwined hand

 

 

I know you must be feeling uncomfortable considering being a single lady but don’t worry I mean no harm *

 

And who said I’m single? *

 

I questioned trying to get along

 

* I’m sorry I didn’t think you’ll let me stay if you have a boyfriend *

 

I laughed out loud and he smiled.

 

Well I am. I haven’t really had time for a relationship. Since I left my sister in Texas to come here all I want is to have my own restaurant someday *

 

I replied and he nodded. We both stayed quiet

 

* Did you have dinner? *

 

I said after a while

 

* Not really *

 

* OK, I will change and come out to prepare something *

 

I told him and went into my room.

 

I showered quickly and changed into something free.

 

I went to the kitchen and met him on the counter having a glass of water.

 

* You found a job early enough *

 

I brought up a discussion bringing out the ingredients

 

* Just a little work, no biggie *

 

He replied and I remembered my sister Wendy

 

 

* My sister always said that ‘no biggie ‘ *

 

I smiled missing her a lot, I should call her * I guess you must miss Wendy a lot * He replied and I was shocked.

 

How did he know my sister’s name?

 

* How did you know her name? *

 

I questioned.
