🌬️h£R LAST WISH
Written by Azeemah.
“$h£’s really start!ng to piss me off” [email protected] said to Dan after narrat!ng th£ Saturday !ncidence to h¡m,th£y were seated !n cla$$ now.
“Wow, $h£’s really someth!ng. I th!nk you should tell Phil”
“It’s not like Phil’s gonna do anyth!ng. I j√$t have to keep try!ng to keep up with th£ girl” [email protected] sigh.
“Phil needs to know, [email protected] $h£ needs to know th£ k!nd of person Mirabel is”
“You th!nk so?”
“Of course, $h£ needs to know th£ worker $h£’s pay!ng refused to work on Saturday because $h£ feels $h£ has done enough on weekdays”
“But isn’t that go!ng to make Phil probably fire h£r”
“Whatever Phil decides to do with h£r should not be your bus!ness, j√$t make Phil know, $h£ deserves to know, trust me”
“I’m go!ng to tell h£r th£n” [email protected] said.
“Yeah, do and I’m glad you stood up to h£r, way to go” Dan patted h£r shoulder and $h£ smiled.
“Hi Dan” Dylan approach£d Dan and [email protected] who were walk!ng to th£ Cafeteria.
“Can I have some m!nutes?” h£ asked.
“Yeah” Dan said.
“I’ll be wait!ng !n th£ Cafeteria” [email protected] said, walk!ng away.
“Okay, so … Thank you Dan, I j√$t want to thank you, that’s all” Dylan said.
“Thank me? For what?” Dan asked.
“For… speak!ng s£nses !nto me”
“I did?” Dan raised a brow.
“Yeah, you did. !n th£ school detention, you advised me to stop feel!ng !nsecure”
“Oh that” Dan said and Dylan nodded. “I’m very glad you made use of those words though. I bet it wasn’t easy to try to change”
“Honestly it wasn’t easy, normally, I usually don’t f!nd it easy to adapt to change, so I found it really [email protected] but I tried because I was actually fed up of hat!ng on someone, it felt like a burden and I was glad to let it go. Thank you Dan for not hat!ng me, even after know!ng how much I despised you”
“I couldn’t hate you because I understood how you felt, I knew wh£re your hate for me was stemm!ng from, I knew you hated me because you were !nsecure so I knew it’d unnecessary to return th£ hate. Although, one th!ng I didn’t like you for was embarra$$!ng [email protected] and always tak!ng advantage of h£r feel!ngs for you j√$t to spite me” Dan said.
“I feel so ashamed of myself to have gone to that length” Dylan bit h¡s l¡p, feel!ng so ashamed. For some days now, h£ has been f!nd!ng it [email protected] to face [email protected] h£ knows how much h£ has offended th£ girl.
“I never knew harbor!ng hate !n your h£art ₱u$h£s one to do unimag!nable th!ngs” h£ said.
“Yeah, it does” Dan said.
“How do I even face h£r now? I’ve been f!nd!ng it [email protected] even look!ng at h£r, I feel so bad” h£ said, know!ng h£’s been a real d*ckh£ad.
“It’s a good th!ng you admitted your wrong, you can approach h£r wh£n you feel ready to. Don’t rush !nto it” Dan said.
“Okay Dan, thanks. I th!nk I can f!nally see th£ reason a lot of people love you”
“C’mon” Dan smiled.
“We’re cool now right?” Dylan asked.
“Of course we are, we’ve been cool s!nce you started say!ng hi to me even though you don’t wait for me to reply, you j√$t leave” Dan said.
Dylan chuckled ” I bet you don’t get how [email protected] it was for me to even say hi to you, I feel ashamed anytime I do that, know!ng how much I’ve wronged you but I went ah£ad anyway and it actually h£lped me adapt easily”
“I’m glad to know that Dylan” Dan said.
“Hm, cool to h£ar you say my name” Dylan said and th£y chuckle.
“I should go jo!n [email protected] now” Dan said.
“Oh okay. You guys must have started dat!ng already, I’m happy for you both, you deserve each oth£r” Dylan said.
“Well… No, we’re not dat!ng yet” Dan said.
“Really? Why?” Dylan asked, wonder!ng what’s hold!ng th£m [email protected]¢k with how obvious it is that th£y both like each oth£r.
“Well…I th!nk [email protected] still…likes you” Dan admitted pa!nfvlly.
“No, that’s not possible” Dylan said.
“Yeah it is, $h£’s still not over you.” Dan said.
“C’mon” Dylan said “You’re th£ one [email protected] likes now. Everyb©dy knows that. It’s so obvious”
“I guess most people mistook th£ way [email protected] acts towards me. It’s pla!n, no feel!ngs !nvolved. I’m th£ one !n love with h£r”
“No, $h£ is with you also, how can’t you see it” Dylan wondered aloud.
“$h£ isn’t, $h£ still stares at you Dylan, $h£ still does.”
“I’m sure you’re mistaken” Dylan said.
“I’m not. Anyway, I should go jo!n h£r now” Dan said, before walk!ng away.
Dylan wondered how Dan could be so bl!nd to see it, [email protected] likes h¡m too.
Well.. th£y’re both gonna realize it soon.
“You guys should j√$t stop!” Kate said to h£r friends who were teas!ng h£r ab©vt Saturday’s !ncidence .
“I can’t believe Paul almost saw Kate butt” Jessie gr!nned, sipp!ng h£r juice.
“Kate would have actually died of horror if h£ had” Sarah said and th£y laugh£d.
“You guys say anym©r£ word ab©vt it and I’ll leave th¡s table. Th£re’s noth!ng wrong with sk!nny dipp!ng!” Kate said.
“Okay, we’ll stop” Sarah said, gr!nn!ng.
“Remember!ng how $h£ h£ld us t!ght while $h£ was [email protected]£d is j√$t anoth£r th!ng that makes me laugh” Jessie giggled..
“You’re right. $h£ was so terrified” Sarah said.
“Especially wh£n Paul came runn!ng” Anne said and th£y laugh£d aga!n.
“That moment was literally h£ll for h£r” Jessie said.
Kate made to get up but th£y ₱v||ed h£r [email protected]¢k and $h£ was forced to laugh with th£m.
“Okay guys, we’ve actually t£@$ed h£r enough” Anne said.
“Yeah, we have” Kate and Sarah agreed, still gr!nn!ng.
“Jess, Mark is approach!ng our table” Sarah said.
Th£y all knew Jess and Mark were not on talk!ng terms.
“Oh” Jess ₱v||ed h£r face !nto a frown.
Mark f!nally got to th£ir table, h£ smiled as h£ said hi to th£m.
“Hi Mark” Th£y smiled [email protected]¢k at h¡m.
Mark is actually a very cute and lov!ng guy, one of th£ most !ntelligent !n th£ cla$$.
Jess had been so over th£ moon wh£n h£ asked h£r ©vt.
“h£y” h£ said to Jess.
“Huh?” $h£ asked, f!nally look!ng at h¡m, ma!nta!n!ng an unsmil!ng face.
“Well…you want some cookies? My mum made th£m” h£ said, dropp!ng a package !n front of h£r..
Th£ frown that was on h£r face softened.
“Thank you” $h£ said.
h£ klzzed h£r ch£eks “I’ll call you”
“Okay” $h£ said.
“See y’all !n cla$$” Mark said to th£m.
“Okay Mark” Th£y said and h£ walked away to h¡s friends.
“OMG, that was so sweet” Kate bl!nked.
“I th!nk I’m go!ng to get myself a boyfriend too” Sarah said.
“I’m def!nitely gett!ng myself one” Anne joked.
“You guys stop” Jessie said, blush!ng [email protected]
“Oh God, Jess…your ch£eks” Kate said and th£y all laugh£d wh£n Jess quickly covered h£r ch£eks with h£r palms.
“I guess you’ve forgiven h¡m now” Anne said.
“Isn’t it so obvious” Sarah said.
“!n fact, I’m pretty sure jessie has forgiven h¡m for h¡s future offense also” Kate t£@$ed and th£y all laugh£d aga!n.
“Wow, so…you and Dylan are officially !n good terms now” [email protected] said after Dan was done tell!ng h£r what happened.
“Yeah” Dan said .
“I’m glad, who knew th£ fight that happened b£tweeΠ you two would actually quench your dislike for each oth£r” [email protected] smiled.
“Yeah, who knew. And I liked that h£ admitted h¡s faults, h£’s really changed” Dan said.
“Good for h¡m” [email protected] said.
“Hi Dan, is th£ pasta good?” Chloe asked and [email protected] wondered wh£n $h£ got to th£ir table.
“Yeah it is” Dan said.
“Are you sure?” $h£ asked.
” Th£ last one I ate was terrible and Im crav!ng pasta now but I’m afraid it’s not go!ng to be nice, I don’t want to waste my money and irritate my t0Πge”
“Trust me, it’s good. You can have a taste” Dan said.
“It must be really good th£n, I’ll go get m!ne” $h£ said.
“Okay” Dan said.
It’s no doubt Dan br!ngs change wh£rever h£ goes, h£’s never afraid to speak h¡s m!nd, h£’s never afraid to tell you you have a shitty behavior, h£ gives room for forgiveness, h£’s j√$t th£ sweetest friend [email protected] has ever come across..
How couldn’t $h£ love h¡m…
“Do you see yourself accept!ng Chloe’s apology if $h£ apologises to you?” Dan asked.
“Well…yeah, even though $h£ was so horrible to me th£n, $h£’s a chaged person now, it won’t take me anyth!ng to forgive h£r, everyone deserves second chance” [email protected] said and Dan smiled.
“That’s so good and thoughtful of you”
“Well…I got that from you” $h£ said.
“Okay, I’m try!ng not to blush” h£ said and th£y giggled.
Dan had told Chloe wh£n th£y first started chatt!ng how terrible $h£ had been to [email protected] And Chloe had admitted it and said $h£ really wants to apologize to [email protected] but doesn’t have th£ courage to, $h£ feels so ashamed to even look [email protected] !n th£ face, not to talk of approach!ng h£r. Besides, $h£ doesn’t know how [email protected] would take it.
h£ also didn’t know how [email protected] would accept Chloe’s apology because Chloe literally made h£r school life h£ll but what matters is $h£’s changed now, h£ advised Chloe to approach [email protected] wh£never $h£ feels confident enough.
And apparently, [email protected] is go!ng to forgive h£r.
h£’s j√$t so lucky to have friends with th£ best h£art.
[email protected] studied h£r hair !n th£ mirror, $h£ doesn’t know if $h£’s see!ng clearly but it seems as though h£r hair is gett!ng fvller.
Could $h£ be mistaken?
Of course it’s not possible, $h£’s supposed to be loos!ng hair, not ga!n!ng it.
$h£’s clearly not see!ng clearly, $h£ is really mistaken.
$h£ gently [email protected] bru$h£d h£r hair and even !n h£r [email protected], $h£ could feel it that it’s gotten fvller.
$h£ quickly dismissed th£ thought and started gett!ng ready to leave for th£ Cafe.
$h£ walked !nto th£ Cafe and wondered what was wrong with h£r sight today.
That def!nitely isn’t Aria that $h£’s see!ng at th£ counter, h£r h£art ach£d, $h£ must have missed h£r so much to start see!ng Mirabel as Aria.
But as $h£ walked closer, Aria’s image still refused to leave Mirabel’s face. [email protected] could see ©vtstretch£d arms, th£ only person who welcome h£r that way is Aria, th£re’s no way Mirabel would stretch ©vt h£r [email protected] to welcome h£r, no way and as [email protected] got closer, it was still Aria’s image $h£ was see!ng.
$h£ stood by th£ counter and stared.
“h£y, it’s me. C’mon” $h£ h£ard that familiar laughter and !n seconds $h£ was s¢r**m!ng and runn!ng !nto Aria’s arms.
Aria laugh£d, hugg!ng h£r t!ghtly.
“OMG! Aria, is it really you?” [email protected] said, still not lett!ng go of h£r.
“Yeah it’s me” Aria smiled.
“I’m so glad to see you, I was actually plann!ng to come visit you on Sunday, didn’t know you missed me so much that you couldn’t wait to see me and have to come all th£ way h£re” [email protected] said, feel!ng so happy.
“I missed you so much Aria, I miss you be!ng h£re with me” [email protected] said, wonder!ng wh£re Mirabel was.
Aria knew [email protected] is still yet to notice $h£ was putt!ng on th£ Cafe’s apron and hair cover.
“Wh£re’s Mirabel? Did $h£ leave already, it isn’t 4pm yet” [email protected] frowned.
“Well… Mirabel left, I’m th£ new worker. It’s so nice to meet you. My name is Aria, what’s yours?” Aria said with humor.
[email protected] s¢r**med happily, f!nally notic!ng th£ apron and hair cover Aria has on.
“OMG! Aria, you’re [email protected]¢k!!” [email protected] said !n disbelief.
“Yeah, after Mirabel left on Saturday. I saw th£ notice Phil put ©vtside and I submitted my application and was employed with©vt !nterview, am I not so lucky” Aria gr!nned.
“Oh my God, you’re really [email protected]¢k! Thanks for com!ng [email protected]¢k Aria” [email protected] hugged h£r aga!n, try!ng not to cry.
“It’s f!ne, and before th£ mushy stuff, you’re yet to !ntroduce yourself” Aria said .
“Okay” [email protected] laugh£d and cleared h£r throat dramatically.
“I’m [email protected], it’s so nice to meet you too, I look really forward to work!ng with you. But why do I feel like I’ve met you before even though it’s th£ first time we’re meet!ng” [email protected] raised a brow.
“Well…maybe we had a bond !n our past lives” Aria said, look!ng so serious that it almost made [email protected] laugh but $h£ isn’t ready to ru!n th£ir act!ng.
“Well..if that’s so, I would love for us to have anoth£r bond !n our pres£nt lives” [email protected] said.
“I’m open to it also, it’s nice to meet you aga!n [email protected]” Aria said.
“Same h£re, I love you Aria” [email protected] said.
“Wow Isn’t that too extreme for someone you j√$t met?” Aria widened h£r eyes and th£y couldn’t stop th£mselves from laugh!ng anym©r£.
“But did Phil really put ©vt th£ notice of look!ng for anoth£r worker?” [email protected] asked Aria.
Th£y were settled now, seated after serv!ng th£ customers !n th£ Cafe.
“Yeah, th£ notice has been ©vt s!nce yesterday”
“Really?” [email protected] asked.
“Weren’t you aware? Of course you weren’t or wouldn’t have asked wh£re Mirabel was wh£n you arrived. I guess Mirabel left s!nce yesterday”
“But while I was com!ng [email protected]¢k from church yesterday, I didn’t see th£ notice of Phil look!ng for anoth£r worker” [email protected] said.
“It was th£re, I guess you didn’t j√$t notice it” Aria said.
“I guess” [email protected] said, wonder!ng why Phil didn’t tell h£r Mirabel quitted s!nce yesterday.
“Anyway, how were you able to conv!nce your husband?” [email protected] asked.
“It wasn’t easy, trust me. I literally have to conv!nce h¡m everyday” Aria sigh£d.
“You still tried to conv!nce h¡m even after Mirabel resumed?” [email protected] asked.
“Of course, I j√$t needed h¡m to cons£nt and th£n planned to persuade Phil to take me [email protected]¢k. Three people work!ng !n a Cafe isn’t too much.” $h£ smiled.
“You’re right, wh£n did h£ f!nally give !n?” [email protected] asked.
“On Saturday and I was on my way to your place on Sunday to conv!nce Phil wh£n I happened to come by th£ notice. I was so happy” Aria smiled.
“So, you’ve been employed s!nce yesterday and decided to keep it from me” [email protected] pretended to be pissed.
“Yeah, I told Phil not to tell you, it was meant to be a surprise” Aria ₱v||ed h£r ch£eks and $h£ laugh£d.
“I never thought your husband would f!nally cons£nt, h£ was so bent on you not resum!ng work h£re anym©r£” [email protected] said.
“Well…th£re’s a condition attach£d to it though” Aria said.
“Really? What condition?”
“I’m go!ng to stop work!ng once I get pregnant aga!n” Aria said.
“Of course you’re go!ng to stop work!ng, it’s not even a condition, it’s someth!ng you must do” [email protected] said.
“Yeah” Aria nodded.
“And you shouldn’t try to get pregnant soon. You can’t leave me all alone aga!n.” [email protected] p©vts. “Well…i th!nk it’s your husband I need to tell th¡s to” $h£ joked and th£y laugh£d.
