LOVE IS A BASTARD
Pat came back from work looking tired and worn out. "Hey girlfriend, wanna relieve yourself from work stress by going to the pub with me?" Her bestie Sonia asked.
There's a great contrast between them, one is wild while the other is tamed, one is outspoken and the other is reserved. The only thing common between them is their Fashion sense. They both have a good taste of things related to fashion.
" I can't Sonny, I'm so tired I know am gonna sleep like a log" Pat replied
"Come on Pat, it's just for tonight, tomorrow is Saturday and that means work free day besides who knows, you might meet some handsome dude who'll be smitten my you" Sonia whined try to convince Pat
" Sonia Jones!!!! how many times do I have to tell you I have a boyfriend whom I care so much about??" Pat shouted angrily
" You really need to work on your anger issues, I'm already getting headache. Jake is just using you, he doesn't love you. How many times do I have to put that in your head"
"It's a lie, Jake loves me and wouldn't cheat on me. He promised me marriage next year because we needs to do something things" Pat whispered getting teary eyes
"Indeed" Sonia scoffed, " if you don't believe me, call him and pretend you want to break up"
"Okay" Pat replied reaching into her bag to get her phone
Hey Pat, what's up
I'm good, I want us to break up, be apart for sometimes. I'm passing through a lot and I don't need pressures from anyone
Okay dear no prob, I've been looking for a way to get out of this relationship. thank heavens you called it quits yourself. I don't have to pretend any longer
What.....Jake, are you serious? You don't mean that, do you?
"I mean every word I said, it was nice having fun with you Patricia. Good bye" Jake said and hung up
" Wait Jake....... I'm sorry" Pat cried into the disconnected line
" You are right Sonny, you've been right all along" Pat lamented crying hard
" I'm always right girlie, now dry your tears, he isn't worth a drop. Go change your clothes and let's get wasted" Sonny said consoling Pat
"Yeah, Let's get wasted" Pat said repeatedly cleaning her tears before heading to her room to change into a black sleeveless gown which stopped well above her knees, brought out a black stilettos to match, styled her hair and applied little make.
" Time to move over you Jake, you're now in the past" She said to herself in the mirror.
" How you I look Sonny" Pat asked
Sonia gasped holding her chest and slowing falling to the ground.
"Ohmygawd, Sonia!" Pat screamed rushing to her side
"Sonia, please wake up, what happen to you?" Pat cried slapping Sonia face at intervals
" Dear Pat, you're taking my breath away" Sonia said and proceeded to pretend faint but Pat smacked her on the head.
" Ouch..... what was that for?" Sonia asked glaring at Pat and gently rubbing her head
" That's for making me worry over nothing now get your ass up , we have a pub to go" Pat said sternly leaving no room for jokes
"Okay Okay" Sonia said smiling and standing up
"And for the record bestie, that was the lamest break up line I've ever heard" She chuckled slipped her hand in to the hook of Pat's arm as they made their way to the pub laughing at nothing.
" What did you say Sonny?" Pat asked raising her voice to be heard amidst the music blaring from the speakers.
" I said there's a guy looking at you at the far corner of the room, seems he likes you. wanna go say Hi?" Sonia shouted
" No I don't want to, I just want to get wasted" Pat replied shouting back but unfortunately her voice was carried away by the music.
Sonia made to take Pat by the arm to drag her to the guy but couldn't find him when she looked back. she looked around and saw him going to the bar stand.
" Girlie, let's go get a drink" she said leading Pat by the arm to the bar stand and was almost there when she removed her arm and pushed Pat who in turn bumped to someone.
"I'm so sorry" she said apologizing looking around for Sonia and found her dancing with some guy on the dance floor.
She looked up and saw the man in front of her smiling at her. What really shocked her is the fangs she saw.
"Wasn't Vampires supposed to be a myth, they don't exist and why is one standing in front of her. This can only mean on thing, he wants to feed on her blood" She thought and bolted for the door.
The fresh evening breeze hit her immediately she got out and she paused to catch her breath.
"My my my, what angel do we have here" she heard beside her.
Her breath caught in her throat as she looked in to the eyes of the stranger
" I presume your blood would be pure" the stranger said.
The only thought that ran through her mind as the stranger brought out his fangs to bite her was " He has beautiful hazel eyes"
