Zarl paused and turn to face him ,I’m going to the bathroom to change .

I’m your family friend ,you made her your best friend while me friend ‘ you trusted her Zarl what about me !, ” Carl yell as he fake tears.
Zarl whom was getting tired of the argument walked towards him and pull him to a hug ,his just a child I shouldn’t have yelled. ” Zarl thought and rub Carl’s back gently patting him to stop crying.
meanwhile Carl was so happy ,I’m the winner yaah ,” he screams inwardly as be if he gained a lottery.
is alright come sit down let’s eat ,but you sit first let me dress up and join you okay. ” Zarl said disengaging from the hug while Carl nodded as he pout like a child and sit down , Zarl shook his head and dash to the bathroom again.
few minutes later Zarl came out of the bathroom and sit beside Carl on the bed he pull the table closer to the bed and open the food.

I came here unexpected but I know you don’t mind your mum ,dad and jack is a hell no I father stay here abd disturb the hell out of you. ” Carl said with a full mouth of food on his mouth.
table manners Carl keep shut you’re eating I don’t want you to choke to death and then your parent or my mum would hit me or even send me to prison for what I didn’t do. ” Zarl scolded.
but Carl scoffs ,who said that I’m going to die just because I talked while eating. “he pouted.
fine let’s just eat first later we talk. Zarl mutter and he nodded and they both start eating.
***** IN IVY HOTEL ROOM ******

I can’t believe he is now so bold and harsh simply because Zarl forgave him, and what exactly is even wrong with Zarl this evening I’m talking to him and he was acting somehow ,he didn’t even allow me to take his bag or laugh with me as usual before going to bed. “ivy mutter sitting down on her bed sadly.
what’s all this Carl ,don’t try me ,that I’m poor doesn’t mean I can’t do something. ” ivy thought rolling her eyes.

why the unnecessary talk when you know you will do it anyways and besides I just finished eating now don’t scold me yet. ” Carl murmur and face the other side while Zarl stare at him .
you’re going back home Tomorrow don’t stay here it’s going to be costing me with many expenses , disturbance and problems. ” Zarl said touching his leg.
I’m not going anywhere , you’re rich anyways but if you’re too stingy don’t worry I will be the one footing our bills okay. Carl scoffs and sit up.
where are you going to ? ” Zarl ask.
I don’t know what I know is that you’re disturbing my ears and I feel a little bit too cold .” Carl said facing him.

or course not , but forget that Atleast you’re too lucky I love that too. ” Zarl murmur as they watch the stars.
you know when I was a kid ,those stars are just like my only friends ,mother , sibling,beat friend , and family because I felt so lonely and bored to death .” Zarl said with a smile while Carl kept quiet and watch closely.
atimes when mum hurt me and beat me telling me she’s not my mum telling me how my mom died till I finally eves drop on dad’s scolding to her one day that when I realized Indeed that she’s not my mum ,so anytime she hurts me or lock me up in my room ,once is night time I sit by the window sides and watch the stars ,atimes I will be like ,mum are you there are you watching me , what about you God are you there please send my dad back home so Atleast mum wouldn’t maltreat me Infront of him. ” I always pray” I have no friends because when I was in school I was a nerd , gentle and quiet , although I have friends that try to come closer to me but I don’t want that kinds of friends that want you because you’re rich , handsome, intelligent or something that’s why I kept my distance and continue waiting knowing that one day I would meet one good friend and finally I met ivy. ” Zarl narrates with a smile.
immediately he mentioned Ivy ,carl frown deeply.
