"you wake up early today"li asked on hearing the voice of my room's door opening.."Damn li, you still underestimate the power your pancakes and waffles hold in my life" I said while taking a seat on kitchen slab.."It's only you girl who likes them" li said laughingly.."it's because no one tasted them" I argue.." No, it's because you never allow me to make them for others" she said laughingly.."Because you are mine, and no one is allowed to have what's mine" I smirked.."there you go again with your cheesy lines " Li sighed..."only for you my love"I winked at her.."Here have this while it's still warm" li said while giving me pancakes and waffles.."By the way, at what time will you be leaving today? I asked..
(li, her name is liana..I prefer calling her li because it sounds too cute, she was the first friend I made in paris. It's gonna be almost one year now...and she is like a elder sister to me now and the only one who knows each and everything about my life..Today she is going on a trip with her boyfriend Alex..And trust me Alex is such a great Boyfriend..I won't deny if you say I'm jealous...heheh )
"In few hours" she replied while taking a seat beside me...I nodded and she continued "umm soph"
(Everyone calls me sophia here and li calls me soph..I wonder if there's anyone who knows that my name is "yn" actually)
I looked at her trying to figure out why the sudden change in her voice..."are you sure you don't want to apply for that " she completed..I sighed "li, I already told you I'm sure and no one can change my mind " she put her hand on mine and looked in my eyes " soph you just can't let go of your dreams because of that one person " she said looking disappointing "li, I told you it has nothing to do with him" "We both know it soph, stop lying..it's just I really can't see you not trying to achieve your dreams when you have everything to do it, you have opportunity and you have talent..what else do you need?" " I'm quite happy here li, I'm getting used to here..You all have become a family to me and now I don't want to change places and try to adjust there as well" I argued
(I came from India to paris for a job...I'm a fashion designer and to be able to get job at "P&K Fashion" was my dream..it's a korean based company and have many branches all over the world and currently I'm working at it's paris branch...Every year they hold a contest within every branch of the company..If you win the contest you will be transferred to its "Head office" i.e in seoul, korea and you will be able to launch your own brand..one of the reason, I admire "P&K Fashion"..and now li has been forcing me to join the contest..ummm not exactly forcing but she knows that it's my dream and she don't want me to give up...)
" oh! really? do you think I'll believe that? she said, I didn't reply and she continued " soph, I'm not saying because you are my friend or something but because as your manager (yes, li is my manager at the company) I have seen the ability and potential in you. you have a talent for it soph..Don't let it go waste" li said looking disappointing and worried..
(she is the second person to tell me, I have talent for it..First one was...never mind)
"li, I'm not going to change my mind..so let's just stop talking about this okay? you go and pack your stuff..you have to leave in few"I said thinking trying not to talk about this more.. "I knew you won't change your mind, I don't know why I still wanted to talk to you about this again..." She said disappointingly and stood up leaving for her room..."li, I'm sorry b.." she cut me off "Don't worry soph, I won't talk to you about this matter again" she said and left...
I know I messed up..she is very upset right now otherwise she wouldn't have said like that...But I don't know what to do , no matter how much I try I am not ready to go there...I knew she wants me to pursue my dreams and achieve everything I can but this is something I don't I'll be able to do...I went up and knock on her room's door ..But she didn't reply...I knock again but no response...
"li, I'm sorry I know you want good for me but try to keep yourself in my place..No matter how much I try, I really can't made my mind to go there...It feels like something, som..something is stopping me.. Trust m...me I rea...(I don't know when and why but tears started forming in my eyes making hard for me to continue talking) I really wan..wanna achie..ve ever..( the door opens and the next second I was in her arms) " I'm sorry soph, I didn't realise how hard it must be for you, I'm sorry for bringing that again" li said while hugging me tightly..."No, it's not your fault, I know you want me to be happy and achieve my dream" she broke the hug and wipe my tears.." No more tears now, let me pack bags, Alex can be here anytime " she stated..
It's been 4 hours since li left...and I'm dying by getting bored..So, I decided to go to club to relax my mind..I dressed up and was about to go when a message came and ruined my freakinn mood...
"Babe, my parents wants you to have dinner with them on their wedding anniversary which is day after tomorrow..I'll pick you up, be ready..love ya"
what the h*ll? what does he mean by that? dinner? like is he going to introduce me? Officially? or what? like wtf..how can he just text like that? who will explain what does this mean?
I called him, but as expected he didn't picked up..I'm literally going to kill him..How can he just tell me this and nothing else..? why they want me to have dinner with them? How I sh...ohhh god..I'm going crazy..whom should I talk? li, yes only she can help now but what if I disturb her? She won't mind and it's emergency she will understand...
so I dialled her number and she picked up after 3 rings.."soph, is everything okay?" she asked Worridly..."No, nothing is okay..He texted me and his parents want to have dinner with me day after tomorrow as it's their anniversary " I said in huryy.." oh my gosh, soph you serious? Already meeting your in laws so soon "she laughed..." Stop it li, it's nothing like that you know everything " I said annoyingly "you know that right, so why the hell you are worrying so much..just chill..it's just a dinner..don't think too much" she said and it's when it hit me...(she is right, why the f**k I'm worrying about this so much when it's nothing..huh I'm so stupid) "Thanks li, as usual you are my saviour..and sorry for disturbing you..I promise I won't disturbed you again..bye" I said and cut the call...
Oh, god I'm so stupid..I was worrying for nothing...Let me g...ohh but wait..what should I give them for their wedding anniversary??
