????WRITTEN BY HOSSY RICH (HOSSANA)????
Me : Blue…
She began to move backwards with a terrified look.
She tried to turn but I grabbed her hand and pulled her to myself.
She was surprised
Even I wonder how I did that and why
We were very close to each other
I shifted back but still held her hand
Me: Blue I’m sorry for yelling again. But I didn’t know it was you. I thought it would be someone else
Blue : but it felt like it was me
Me: believe me Blue, it wasn’t.
Blue : then who was it supposed to be for
I left her hand and and moved aside with my hands in my pocket
Me: some set of people
The thought of my parents and Gladys made me angry again.
And I had to turn away from Blue, because my face was all tensed up and squeezed in anger.
Then I heard her chill voice
Blue : I thought you were still angry with me that’s why you yelled when I came here. But I actually came here to apologize
I turned to see her with her head bowed and her hands together.
Me: did you annoy me?
She raised her head
Both of us looked confused
Blue : weren’t you angry with me for the way I acted earlier before leaving your chamber?
I thought she was actually angry with me for yelling at her
And I thought I was back to square one.
I should be the one apologizing
Me: no, Blue I thought you were angry with me for yelling at you. I was sad because I thought you’ll be scared of me again
Blue : no I wasn’t angry
Me: I guess we just misunderstood everything
Blue : yes
I held her hand
Me: come with me
I took her to the place I wanted to stay then.
Me: I like here. It’s cool
Blue : no Blue flowers are here
I laughed and sat down on a bench surrounded by flowers all round. It was like a covering or a verandah.
It was a bit dark because the thick bushes didn’t allow the lights to pass through it.
I helped Blue to sit beside me and my hand was still locked with hers.
I couldn’t remove it
I didn’t have the energy
My hand felt weak
Blue : Prince can you tell me why you were angry?
She removed her hand
I used the hand to rub my forehead.
I felt happy that she showed signs of care.
But I didn’t know if I should tell her
Well I needed someone to talk to
Definitely not Derek
Me: my parents want me to uhmm, settle down and start making plans for my future throne
What an amazing lie
So amazingly stupid
Blue : huh, is that a bad thing to do
Me: no no it’s not. Just their motive behind it. They want to be the ones to make the decisions for me
She smiled and rested her head on the top of the bench
Blue : parents only do that when you show signs of irresponsibility
Me : what? Are you saying I’m irresponsible?
Blue : you’re so irresponsible
Then she stood up and ran away
I stood up and ran after her. She was laughing and running in between the spaces in the garden
Me: you can’t run faster than me Blue Maid. I’ll catch you
Blue : hahaha, let’s see how it goes
She ran to my right and was heading to the roses section.
There was just one flower fence between the two of us.
If I should go round to the opening, she’ll be very far away from me
So I jumped over the fence which was just reaching my waist and I ran from behind her and grabbed her waist.
She screamed and we both laughed
Me: I caught you
She was still laughing happily when I turned her around to face me.
She began to hit my chest playfully
Me: ouch it hurts
I left her and began to run
Blue : what get back here now.
She pursued me but I didn’t run fast.
I just kept saying that it hurts
We were getting to where the flower fences were really tall.
I hid behind one and she didn’t see me
She stopped running
Blue : Adrian? Adrian where are you?
She called my name without adding Prince
Isn’t today the best day ever?
She came to where I was and I popped out.
She got frightened and I sweeped her off her feet into my arms. Not bridal style though, my hands were below her butt. I carried her straightly
She screamed and I laughed
Blue : put me down! I’ll bite you
Me: bite me please
Blue : hahaha, I’ll bite your ear
She lowered her mouth to my ear and I tickled her.
She wriggled herself free from me as she was laughing.
Blue : I can’t breathe
She was laughing so hard she couldn’t breathe. I laughed and told her to calm down.
I held her hand and used the other hand to make ‘calm down’ gestures to her.
After her breath normalized, I checked the time.
We’ve been here for two hours already?
Blue : Cindy should be looking for me
Me: who’s Cindy?
Blue : my bestie, we’re three Cindy Blue and Audrey right from service school. But Cindy was sent here while we were sent to Derek’s home
Me: oh that’s great. But I hope you know Derek doesn’t actually live there. He has his own house. But he hardly stays there
We began to walk
Blue : ohh, how about you?
Me: I have a personal mansion too, here in Edinburgh. There’s a glasshouse of mine in Glasgow and a duplex in Aberdeen.
Most of my assets are not here in Scotland
Blue : okay
Me: what do you love most apart from anything Blue. I mean something natural
She thought for awhile
Blue : water
Blue : I love water, so much
Me: wow, which means you must know how to swim
Me: I won’t be surprised if you love water because of seas and oceans
Blue : I don’t understand
Me: seas and oceans are blue in color
Blue : that’s part of it
We already reached the gate of the garden.
Me: I guess this is good night then
Blue : yes, thanks for making the evening fun
Me: you made it awesome
I squeezed her hand softly
We’ve been holding hands since
Blue : good night prince
Me: goodnight princess
She chuckled and let go of my hand then left
I stood to look at her and when she went out of sight my heart ached
What was I expecting?
A good night kiss?
Or maybe I was expecting a hug or what?
But it hurts to see her leave like that
I don’t even know why
I scattered my hair and left my hand on my head with my other hand on my waist.
I turned to go when Princess Gladys came out of nowhere
Gladys: you’re seeing a maid?
I ignored her
I don’t want my mood to get spoilt because of her
I walked past her
Gladys : Prince Adrian
Me: how may I help you?
Gladys: we’re getting married soon, why are you bringing down your reputation by going to your maids when I can give it to you even though we’re not yet married. You really shouldn’t stoop so low to maids, where you that desperate?
What is wrong with this girl?
She thinks I use my maids for my desires
I’m not like that
But I wasn’t ready to explain myself to her at all
Me: we’re not getting married. And even if I choose the girls on the street, it’s none of your business
I began to walk away from her
Gladys : I thought you were decent? You’re just a sexy beast. I don’t want to see you near any maid or any girl, whoever they are.
Me: and what authority do you have?
Gladys: you might wanna go find out from your father the implications of not marrying me
Then she walked away
She just left me confused and angry at the same time
My mood has changed
This lady talks with so much confidence
What’s behind her?
I better find out
But whatever it is, Gladys will never end up with me……..
