14. Curly with olives for eyes!
I closed the taxi door and rushed to the hospital. "Hello. Please can I see Kimberly Edwards?" The secretary examined me up and down, then asked me if I was a family member or something. "yes I'm her sister!!"
"but her brother just came so...?" She looked at the computer screen, working while talking to me. I bit my lip. What brother ??
"No! Kim doesn't have a brother!"
"He just came out actually. Anyway just enter...maybe that was a lie!"
"Thank you" I went in, wondering who that guy was? Did he hurt her? Was he a murder or something? My footsteps hurried with every thought that popped in my head. I creaked open the door, to find a room with full white walls, a hospital bed, and some red flowers on the counter next to the bed. On the bed laid a weak looking, pale-faced Kimberly, with warm tired eyes and a small smile.
"Kimmy! are you okay? What happened??" I hugged her then sat on the chair next to her bed.
"Oh thank god you are here! I'm so sorry for leaving you with them!" Was she talking about...oh the day I was unconscious after helping the little girl.
"Oh that's fine! What happened to you? What was that call about??"
"I got a call that Mother (Nicole) was sick in the hospital, and was going to have her operation. She was between life and death! I just...I don't know what I was thinking that time...!!"
"Oh my!! how is she now?"
"She is out of the operation already and it was successful thank god! Oh my...I'm so grateful everything is alight!!"
"What happened to you that night?? You did not get yourself in trouble again did you Lizzy? You can be really an idiot sometimes if no one is taking care of you!!"
"No no I did not! I went home and tried to contact you in any way until I got your message that you were in here! then came straight away!" WHY DID I JUST LIE!! I could not seem to get the words out and tell her I found my brother but stupid me got freaked out and ran away! Oh myyy!!!!! "I need to go now though! Work work!!"
"Haha! okay good luck! good bye!" I waved and rushed to get a taxi and get going to the cafe.
"Hey...I'd like one...ummm" He looked at the menu above, not sure of what to order. He was curly with olives for eyes. Let me rephrase that. he had curly hair and olive green eyes. He looked at me then, smiled, then awkwardly asked, "What do you recommend I buy??"
I looked at the menu. Should I? okay then!! "the peppermint hot chocolate! Its great in this cold weather!! believe me!!"
"Oh okay then! I'd like two of them."
"Oh and...can I have your phone number with them?"
I blushed, "I'm sorry we don't sell these here"
He laughed "Okay you win!" and walked to a table.
I put on my coat. It is so cold!! and raining ...! I waited in front of the cafe doors for a taxi, but no one! I put my arms around me, and let out a sneeze. someone laughed at me. I turned around to find curly!
"shut up curly it's not funny!"
"My my you don't have to get s angry. A ride home with me to pay up for it maybe?"
"No thanks!" I stood there knowing he was still staring at me. No car passed. I checked my phone. 11:39. I have to be home soon. After some time I looked at him from the corner of my eyes, then seeing that he was staring at me smirking, looked away. He stood next to me watching the rain trickled on us.
"So beautiful isn't it?"
"uh-huh" why is he s nice now?
"So...wanna ride now? there is no one coming believe me!"
I looked at me phone again. 11:46. I sighed and nodded, then went with him.
