I nod slowly still staring at him


“What’s wrong with you? Have been watching you from my table for some minutes, what’s the matter?”, He asked. His voice sounds like that of an angel.


Am sure he’s an angel but wait a minute, did he say he has been watching me from his table? How come I didn’t see him when I looked around?


“I’m fine”, I managed to say after long stared then look away.


He chuckled and turned my face to his


“You are not, it’s written all over you. Your heart is heavy I can see the pain in your eyes, you need a comforter. You need someone that will stay and console you in times like this. You are emotionally down I can see it in your eyes”, he said softly as tears poured out of my eyes like water.


I never knew I still have such tears in my system.


“Please stop crying you are too beautiful for this”, he said and hug me.


Have I ever hugged someone before? The one and only person I’ve hugged was my godmother. Since she died eight to nine years ago I’ve never hug anybody.


I felt a bit relief as he pace my back gently, he seems caring. We stayed like that for God knows how long, I slowly disengaged from the hug and bend my head. He raised my head and stared into my eyes.




“You need some rest, come let me take you home”, he said taking my hand


“I need to pay my bills”, I said


“Don’t worry about it, I’ve taken care of it. The waitress that serves you minutes ago is my kid sister”, he said


OMG! I can’t believe this! They must be good people in their family.


“Ok”, I murmured standing up


He guide me to his Ferrari, the car is too beautiful. I’ve never own a car talk more of driving one though I’ve a driving license.


He opened the front door for me, I entered and he close it then went to the driver’s seat.



“Where do you live?”, He asked


“I live in Boston here, the second Street opposite train station number 42”, I said and he nods.


???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? ????


I wake up to find myself on a very soft bed in a beautiful room, I look around and noticed I wasn’t in my room.


{Did he brings me to his house?} I thought as I climbed down from the bed.


I walked through the hallway slowly, I came down from the stairs and there he was playing video game alone. I quietly went to meet him.


“Hello”, I said, he turned to me and smiled.


I don’t even know his name I forgot to ask him.


“You’re awake, come sit beside me”, he said tapping the couch he was sitting, I went and sat beside him.


“Where are we?”, I asked


“In my house of course”, he smiled warmly


“Ok and your kid sister the waitress, does she stays with you?”, I asked


“Sometimes she does but she mostly stay with her boyfriend, the room I kept you is her room”, he said and I nod.


The house is nice and he has a beautiful living room. I just realized how cute he is, I feel like touching his blonde hair.


“Let me get you something to drink”, he stands up


“No, am fine I mean am ok”, I said


He look at me with his s£xy eyes, I look away because I was kind of shy, I guess he notices cause he takes his glance off me.


“Why did you bring me to your house?”, I asked, he smiled and sat beside me


“Before I got to your house you were already asleep I didn’t want to disturb you that’s why I brought you here. Well am sorry for that if…..”,


“It’s ok you don’t have to apologize beside am not angry”, I cut him short


“Really?”, He asked and I nod


“Ok, so what’s your name? I forgot to ask you”, he said


“My name is Lydia James and you?”,


“Am Larry Scott, am 32 years old and you?”,


“Am 28 years”, he stared at me strangely for some moments.


“Why were you crying today at the restaurant?”, His voice sounds like that of a child’s own.


“Life is so unfair to me”, I said not looking at him.


“Do you mind sharing your story with me?”, He asked


I told him everything I know about myself, what my godmother told me concerning my parents how my godmother died and how I’ve been suffering from the hands of haters for good nine years.


He breathed down after listening to my story, he takes my hand to his and turned my face to look at him.


“But that wasn’t the only reason you were crying today right?”, He said and I nod as tears poured out from my eyes.


“Pretty, please don’t cry ok?”, He said softly and hug me.


His skin is so warm and I love the sounds of his heartbeat, it calms me down.


Truth is, I don’t even know why I feel ok with him around me, no man has ever approach me for the past 28 years of my life on earth but here I’m lying on this Mr handsome’s chest while he pace my back like a baby.


“Don’t worry, if you don’t want to talk about it no problem I just want you to be fine ok?”, He said


I disengaged from his and look into his grey eyes. I love staring into those eyes of his. It just makes me feel better and it’s looks so innocent and calm.


“Why are you being nice to me I mean you barely know me”, I said and he chuckled


“Dearie, we get to know everybody one day, nobody knew each other before coming to earth”, he said


He’s right but how come nobody knew me all these years? How come I end up alone in this wicked world? Why did fate didn’t gave me exactly what I desire instead of a dirty and bad luck life.


“So what do you want from me?”, I asked


“I want to be your friend, I want to be that person that will stay and console you in times like this”, he said


“You can’t be my friend”, I said somehow harshly


“Why?”, Came his cool and sweet voice, I stared at him then look away.


“Because am a bad luck and anywhere I go disaster always happen”, I said, a soft laugh came out of his mouth but fade away instantly.


“What do you mean?”, He asked


“Nevermind, I want to go home”, I said as I stand up.


“It’s late, it half past ten already”, he said


“No problem but I still want to go home infact goodnight”, I rushed to his sister’s room, take my small bag and ran out.


He tried preventing me, I pushed him away, I don’t want to bring disaster to him and his family even though I want to stay with him. He followed me.


“Lydia please wait”, he pleaded following me


I didn’t stop nor look back, I ran to cross road when the car carries me up then let go of Me, I fell hitting my head on the ground.


“No!! Lydia!!”, I heard Larry’s voice


It’s suddenly began to rain as everywhere went dark, I blink my eyes twice before closing them.


I found myself in a dark and endless railway, I was running calling for help, I couldn’t feel myself again.


I suddenly felt trapped to where I stand, I tried to move when I saw a strange train coming from my right but I couldn’t move my legs and hands.




I watch the train as its came closer to me, I close my eyes waiting patiently for its to kill me.


“Lydia!!”, Someone called me from where I don’t even know.
