With one click, my bank balance hits zero. How can I pay my house rents, tuition fees and other things If I don't have any penny. Maybe, the world is kidding me.
" Let's go. Felice and Vena is waiting. " Athena, my best friend since primary school infront of me demurs. " Hola...." I say, staring intently at my account card.
I cannot help myself but to panic. I remember the words used to tell me by my dad before he passed away is that " Babygirl, money is precious. But you know what the good thing is? You can always make more. Just trust the process ." Except I spent my 10 years saving my money and yet used it up all in just a one blink by paying my mother hospital bills. I could have gone on a trip around the world, pay my rents and tuitions. But, it's okay. It's for mom anyways.
" Join us tonight? Vena is having a party. " Athena ask, as We walk towards Vena and Felice who is waiting at us on the corner with a tired eyes gaping back at us.
" No. I'm going to my brother's pad tonight. " I say with an uneasy smile " Unless, I have a place to stay with. "
" That's right." Athena replied. " Your brothers are rich, but yet you are here suffering. " She adds.
" Yeah. But, I like to stand on my own feet not depending on theirs. We've been through a lot already. I don't want to be a burden to them. " I explained, while Athena look at me in disbelief.
" you're unbelievable, Woman. " Athena mocked, as I hear Vena and Felice laughing to what Athena has spoken.
With a deep breath, I stepped out of my reverie to face them three. And look around to see our surroundings. To my dismay-we are near at the nearest club opposite the bank I was withdrawing with earlier.
Before long, Vena pull me out to enter the club.
As we go inside, I spotted some people making out, some having themselves sink into a drunken state, and some is making their way to the corner to start dancing. How disgusting, the place is. I felt the urge to vomit just by looking at them.
" Vena? " I called out. " What were we doing here? I thought I already told you three that I'm not going to join you today? " I say, staring at them. " Oh. Great. " I mocked, as I notice them staring at some guys in the corner instead of listening to me.
" I'll send you off later to your brother's pad if that is what you're worrying about? Just enjoy. " Vena replied, while the other two still gawking at the guys. Handsome, lethal, dangerous is the thing I can describe them. This guys are so, not good for my friends.
"Okay. " as I sink myself into the chair across from my gawking friends who is busy stalling at their guys.
I then cracked my eye close, as I frown and open my eyes as I felt the intense gaze of someone. I just feel it.
As I cracked open my eyes, I stare at the guy "You okay? " He asked.
" Yeah. " I say with a smile.
" Jill Caspian"
"huh? " I say while I stared at him confused. " Jill Caspian is the name. You are? " named Jill say, asking me.
" I'm Aimee Castelle"
" Is that your friends? " Jill say while glazing at my friend who is now dancing at the dance floor. I followed his gaze and realize that, I have been here at the club for almost an hour.
" Yes. "
" why didn't you join them? " He asked, as he gazed at the bartender's area. Maybe, looking for something to order.
" I don't have the heart to. " I say as I get a spare chair to let him sit. "sit" I say lending him the spare chair beside me.
"You want one? " Jill says while pointing at his beer in his left hand. " Kind of, to spice up my mood. I think. " I reply.
I take a deep breath, as Jill lend me a can of beer. I sip slowly, as Jill and I continue our conversation.
" Ae, let's go. " Athena called out getting my attention, then I gaze at my phone to see it is past 12 midnight. Oh Hell.
" Bye. "
