Kimber dropped by my house on her way back from work. She looked very tired and stressed. I couldnt help b ut asked.
Lucia: How was work today ?
Kimberly: I dont even want to talk about it, it was very hectic.
Lucia: Its evident on you but why didnt you just head home and get some rest ?
Kimberly: I needed to see you, spending time with you, relieves me of any kind of stress.
Lucia: I’m flattered.
Kimberly: That wasn’t meant as a compliment.
Lucia: Then what was it ?
Kimberly: Nevermind, how about you, how was your day ?
Lucia: Boring. I have been home alone since i came back from the boutique earlier today.
Kimberly: What about your mum ?
Lucia: She travelled to get some new stock.
Kimberly: So what are you going to do ?
Lucia: Dont worry about me, i’ll get by.
Kimberly: Could i use your phone to make a call ?
Lucia: What happened to your own phone ?
Kimberly: The battery is dead.
I gave her a suspicious look and then handed her the phone. She dialled the number and listen. When the person picked up, she spoke.
Kimberly: Hey Chris, its Kimberly.
I couldnt believe my ears, i promise to kill her for this.
Kimberly: Am good and you ?
A moment of silence’ then she said ” she is fine”. I knew she was referring to me. Another moment of silence then she finally said. ” Hold on, let me pass her the phone”. No! She didnt, i cant believe this is happening. She t—-t out the phone to me and whispered. ” Talk to him please”. I collected the phone but not before i told her i’m going to have her head in the stakes for it.
Chris: How are you.
Lucia: I’m fine.
I could you put me in sure a position, i muttered under my breath. She look at me and smiled.
Chris: Is this your number ?
Lucia: Yes it is.
Chris: I’ll give you a call later. Take care, bye.
Immediately i dropped the phone, i turned to her and said.
Lucia: You devil.
Kimberly: Am i ?
Lucia: Yes you are. He is going to give me a call laterh thanks to you, he now has my number.
Kimberly: Wow! Be nice when he calls yo u.
Lucia: Why should i ?
Kimberly: Why shouldn’t you ? He just wants to be your friend, nothing is wrong with that.
Lucia: I dont need more friends.
Kimberly: Exactly, how many friend do you have ?
Lucia: Atleast i got you.
Kimberly: And you think, just me is enough.
Lucia: How many friend do i really need.
Kimberly: Alot and Chris is one of the many.
Lucia: What about you, dont you need more friend.
Kimberly: That isnt the point, this is about you not me. And when he calls be nice. Am warning you.
She sounded that warning with a note of finality and i couldnt care less. I get her and i dont think there is any need for someone else.
