It took me 48 minutes to complete the exam, I spent the other 12 minutes making sure everything was written correctly and the working outs were right. Gosh finance is a headache. Anyway that’s a semester over!
After the exam, Ai invited us all over to her house; she’s throwing a party because this semester is officially over. I accepted the invitation and told her I need to go back to my place, rest for a while then join her party.
When I was on my way back I felt someone follow me again, I quickened my pace towards the traffic lights before they turned red. I was about to cross the road when I felt someone’s hand grabbing my arm tightly.
You! He yelled. My eyes widened. He dragged me backwards towards one of the restaurants wall.
Let go of me! I raised my voice, hoping he’d let go, or perhaps someone might help me. Is this guy drunk? I’m not sure, but all I know is that I’m in a frightening situation. He pinned me to the wall and everyone that walked past us gave me a weird look. My arms crushed towards the wall, I couldn’t move. He was only centimetres away; I could feel his unsteady breathing. I couldn’t take my eyes off of his. All the piercings, on his eyebrows, his lips, his ears, his tongue they scare me. Why has he done this to his beauty? His overall look disgusted me, but it was his features that made him stand out, he is handsome. His dark grey eyes sparked as he looked at me from head to toe; from my ombre red hair that started off from a shade of falu red to venetian red, with a mixture of reds as well, to my green hazel eyes, to my matte dark nude lipstick, to the 7 seven piercings on my right ear and the other 4 piercings on my left and finally the way I dressed.
I’ve been following you for days, trying to figure out your name, where you live and the university you go to. My heart stopped. He’s stalking me. You’re a student at Y University and you live in Z building’s penthouse along with your nanny Aibileen? Am I right Jawaher AlX?
I’m Alfie. He let go of me and stuck his hand out waiting for me to shake my hand with his, and I did. Let me walk you back to your penthouse so you can rest then go to Ai’s party.
No. What do you want from me?
It’s a long story.
I have time, tell me now.
He grabbed my chin and looked into my eyes. I want you.
I pushed him away. I’m not in the mood for your childish games. And I walked away, he laughed at what I said then quickly grabbed me before I could runaway.
Listen! I’ll tell you everything tomorrow, but promise me you’ll listen and you’ll show up.
I will. Where will you be?
