"Tell me what happened?" Precious removed the blanket off her, she dragged it back and that got her to be sit on as Precious climbed on top her.
"Ah, what gives! Get your big butt off my face, i think I'm dying, Precious i can't breathe! Elephant!" she wailed as she laughed out for a minute as Precious got down taking a position on her bed.
"Good, that will tell you not to keep shut when i ask a question, now spill. I thought he was gone already, i should have stayed a while longer at the movies"
"You went to the movies, alone? For me?"
"Don't get emotional on me, how was he, I mean it, I mean the date"
"Seeing as you are the master planner and instigator I'd reward you with an answer, it was good"
"More! That's it?!"
"Oh hell no Missy! Details now" as she tickled her friend.
Tale laughed as she was sensitive a lot to being tickled "Ok stop, i'd talk! You are nosy, you know that?
"Yes and proud of it"
"OK" she said sitting up as she went into details about what had happened.
"Dammit, i should have waited five more minutes"
"I'm glad you didn't"
"Look at you, you wanted it now, didn't ya!
"Your fault now, wasn't it? she replied in same tone.
"You almost got this glow and i can't wait to see it last longer"
"Shut up!" she finally gave in "Jeez he's so hot and smells so freaking good"
"Tell me more" Precious said as they took a position at the head of the bed and gossiped for the next hour.
GRA phase 2...
"Hello stranger" Woo Jin dressed in a grey sweatpants and white tee that pressed tight to his chest and arms had spent the day alone and didn't dare call him as Su Yan had warned him not to.
"Hello" he walked to the bar frowning as his hands swept his hair back in frustration.
"How was your date? Are you not going to tell me what is going on so I'd be able to help out"
Dark eyes looked up from the drink he had walked straight to. He couldn't think of anything else as thoughts of how he could have kept her in his arms, kept her there until he got that kiss flooded him. Precious would have understood, she would. Instead he had chickened out! Dammit, she was right he really was a chicken!
A frustrated Su Yan downed the whole glass of the drink he just poured himself.
"OK that's enough" Woo Jin took the drink and glass from Su Yan hands and dropped it at his side.
If there wasn't anyone who wasn't afraid of Su Yan it was Woo Jin. Trust and true friendship had taken away the need to fear, loyalty had made room for comfort and that was why when Su Yan gave his death stare Woo Jin didn't flinch.
"Let's talk about it"
Su Yan sat down as he narrated his ordeal to his friend who tried his best not to laugh all through. He had never seen his friend let anything get to him especially in matters concerning the opposite sex. It was rare. There have only been one woman in Su Yans life, she had been his first love, his friend would move heaven and earth for her, until it ended and there was no going back.
"All this over some kiss"
"If you can't talk with respect keep shut" he was worked up enough as it was.
"Ah, here we go, something just tells me you will get another chance" Woo jin poured the both of them a drink. "Drink up!" "A woman who could shake you up this bad, reject you and yet you still went looking for her and above that made you smile, is worth drinking to. Cheers my old friend" he drank.
Su Yan studied the drink absently as he thought over what his friend just said. Yes she is worth it, he took a drink.
"What should i do now?" they had made a floor bed in her living room as she wasn't sure she wanted to be in her room, she kept seeing her and Su Yan in that intimate moment.
"I'd say go for it, what is the worst that could happen"
"I get hurt again. Badly"
"Chris was a level 10 loser. Su Yan is different both physically and literally. Something tells me you have nothing to loose"
"So i should call him and ask him out"
"Girl you crazy! No way, take your time. I'm saying enjoy every moment of it, every step you two take now, take it in and maybe one day he would look up and see that he can't really live without you, and i bet its sooner than you think"
"You sound so sure" Tale said dragging a blanket over her body, the nights were colder in December as the haramttan (1) set in. It was her favorite season.
"Because what are the odds that you go to a mall on the day that it was out of chicken and meet a Chinese god in need of it too"
"Zero i guess?"
"I guess. Lets believe in the magic of that and see how it goes"
"What are we going to do about your love life though" Tale dropped the question
"I figured I'd start next year" she joked as they both laughed.
"Never use my phone again to set up dates I'm not aware of"
"I'm not listening to you"
"How did we become friends again?"
"You hated my guts"
"I loved your guts" Tale said as she turned facing her side of the bed to relive a moment "It was only overwhelming at first" she finished. She reached for her phone and sent a text before slipping into dreamland to feel things that might not be in reality.
GRA phase two...
He was taking a shower when his phone beeped... It could be family, God knows he wasn't winning the son of the year award or the brother of the year award either.
"Sleep well tonight Chicken. I loved our time together today, if you share my secret with anyone I'd snap your wings off! XO"
He smiled... Her text was all he needed... for now. He had left her room out of the story he told Woo Jin for the benefit of telling him how he missed out on kissing her real fast.
