Have you ever been caught up in an awkward moment where you have a lot to say but just one word renders you speechless? This was the exact situation I found myself in when I heard him say ‘My Bukky’.
I lost focus and could hardly open my mouth, but I didn’t even know what to say to begin with. I was expecting him to say something else; about me leaving him stranded at the altar, or grip me for betraying our love, but he turned on the engine and sped off.
What? Just like that? No any other word except ‘My Bukky’?
“Da..David!” I called.
He didn't reply, he didn't say anything. This guy is driving me crazy. Just a moment ago, he made me feel he had emotions, now he just went blank.
He parked the car abruptly, I didn't realise we were already in the fashion house.
“David, I know I have hurt you, but...”
I didn’t even finish with my sentence before Joanne sprang out of nowhere and gave him a hug.
“Who is this?” I wondered, “Is this really David or an imposter?”
I got out of the car and waved at Joanne, not because I wanted to, but because I had to.
“Where are you both coming from?” she asked.
I was startled when Jeremy said from behind me, “The hospital. Where else would we be coming from?”
The next stage of the competition drew near. We were to present a couple portrait, the best three would proceed to the final stage.
I was divided. The competition didn't really matter to me at this point in time, it was David and his attitude. I didn't understand why he acted the way he did and it was driving me crazy.
Should I approach him? How can I when that Joanne follows him around like a fly. To worsen my case, Vodka was all over him too. That Vodka!?
She noticed I had a soft spot for David, so anytime she saw me around she whispered “Oh David that, David this.”
I was getting tired of this. David has to spit it out. Why this torture? I made up my mind, damn the consequences.
One evening, I stole in to meet him at his office.
He turned to look at me and as usual kept quiet. In anger, I marched towards him and grabbed his arm. He was quick to release his arm, drew me close like a piece of paper and held me against the wall. I struggled… he was just a breathe away, coming closer. Oh God! He wants to kiss me.
