I mean don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with loving someone there's always going to be a point whereby you find yourself loving someone it's normal. But what do you do when your past keeps on bringing you down?what do you do when your past keeps on telling you that you are trash and you'll never be enough?if it was people telling you all that you'd relocate if it was your television you'd switch it off but how do you escape from your own mind? How do you switch off your own thoughts? How do you convince your mind that the past has passed when it keeps on reminding you of it?trust me The most cruel place to be imprisoned is your mind no matter how long you serve your sentence its almost impossible to be set free. And that was exactly what Anita was going through people standing on the other side of the wall might think she's just being stubborn but what if her stubbornness is her defence mechanism? What if its just fear? Fear of being hurt by men again and again... Anita thought about her life alot on that Friday she knew exactly what her heart wanted.. I mean who her heart wanted.. She was snapped out of her thoughts by her door opening it was Sandra of course
"hey babe "Sandra walked in with a tray of muffins in her hands
"mmhh chocolate muffins my favourite "Anita smiled
"I'm glad you like them you look like you need them "
"Every woman needs chocolate once in a while don't you think? "
"of course and lunch is on me "Sandra winked
"oh okay I'm worried now what's going on? "
"Nothing can't I spoil my new friend? "
"hhhmm!"Anita held her chin On Fridays they knock off early around 2pm so before the hands of time could turn Anita and Sandra were seated and having lunch at Latino restaurant Sugar was the One serving them
"don't forget the tip "Sugar smiled
"of course Sandra meet my best friend Sugar Sugar meet Sandra my friend "Anita introduced them
"nice to meet you Sandra don't forget the tip "Sugar said
"hahaha I won't "Sandra replied
"Oops the boss is here excuse me "Sugar rushed to take orders from Chris
"What the... "Anita couldn't believe her eyes when she turned to look at 'the boss ' it was Chris pulling a chair for Pinky
"Don't mind them Pinky has always had a crush on Chris "Sandra said
"Seems like they are now an item "Anita replied
"Nah Chris would never date a gold digger like Pinky "
"Uhm I think I've lost my appetite I'm going home "
"Come on girl its Friday we just knocked offwhat's the hurry? "Sandra asked
"I just feel sick that's all "
"okay then "Sandra said as Anita left the restaurant with a sad face Chris 's eyes were on her the whole time
"Who is she anyway? "Pinky asked
"Huh? "Chris replied
"the girl you are staring at"Pinky replied "Anita of course what's her story? "
"You are asking the wrong person "Chris replied
"Oh really? Anyway I asked to have lunch with you because I like you alot Chris "Pinky said
"Oh thanks "
when Anita got home she took a very long bath she even fell asleep it the bath tub she woke up around 4:39 pm dried herself and wore her night dress ate ice cream while watching TV. A few minutes later Chris walked in..
"you are back already? "Chris asked as he entered
"Yeah "Anita replied
"You look more beautiful without any make up "Chris sat next to her
"Don't lie "Anita looked away
"I mean it why do you hate me? "
"I don't hate you "Anita replied
"Anita I see life when I look into your eyes "
"Do you see it in Pinky's eyes also? "
"Are you jealous? "Chris smiled
"Don't flatter yourself "
"One day my kids will be calling you mom "
"Good evening people "Sugar screamed her way into the house
"h... Hy (clears throat)hy Sugar "Chris replied
"Did I miss something? "Sugar asked
"No your timing was perfect "Anita replied
"Excuse me "Chris stood up
"Can I carry your bag to your study room? "Anita asked
"uhm.. What... Wow yeah of course "Chris didn't expect that from Anita
"okay let me just go take a shower because this is awkward "Sugar excused herself
"She carried my bag to the study room! "Chris phoned Nico
"Calm down Chris take a deep breath "
"She saw me having lunch with Anita got upset went home I spoke to her and she asked to carry my bag "Chris said
"Dude are you kidding me spoke to her about what? "
"I told her she's the mother of my kids "Chris replied
"you did what! The plan was to hide that you still want her Chris you have failed me what's wrong with you? "
"I'm sorry she looked so beautiful I love her Nico I.. I just couldn't bare to see her sad "
"Oh Lord Chris! "Nico hung up
Chris was so excited he couldn't stop thinking about Anita as he lay on his bed unfortunately his fantasy was interrupted by a knock
""Chris we need to talk come downstairs please "Sugar said as Chris followed her to his surprise he found bags all packed up
"What's going on are y'all traveling? "Chris was confused
"remember last night you said you'll book us into a hotel in the morning? "Sugar asked
"Yeah it was.. A joke y'all can stay "Chris replied
"Are you sure? "Anita asked
"I've never been so sure in my life "Chris replied
"okay then we will stay "Sugar said
"this calls for a celebration I'm taking you girls out tonight "Chris replied
"yeah"The girls shouted when the night came they all prepared themselves to go out Sugar wore a purple mini dress and purple heels Anita wore a black leather tight and a peach shirt with black heels Chris wore a dark black Jean black shirt and Red Jordan sneakers. They locked the house and drove off to attend a cocktail party at Mandla 's place
"Can I have the One in the black tight? "Mandla shouted as Chris walked in with the girls to Chris's surprise Pinky was there
"Shut up "Nico stepped on Mandla's foot
"Ouch! "Mandla was already tipsy
"wasup Mandla I brought companymeet Anita and Sugar "Chris introduced them Mandla became sober same time
"Sugar? You look familiar "Mandla said
"Chris man I need to talk to you in private now!"Nico said
"Come on my guy can't we just have fun tonight? "Chris asked
"it's a matter of life and death "Nico said as he took Chris by the hand
"Geez dude what's going on? "Chris asked they stood at a distance
"Sugar is one of those prostitutes me and Mandla booked the other day "Nico said
"nah you are mistaken bro "Chris disagreed
"I think its time you ask Anita who she really is "Nico suggested
"I'm not sure if I follow"Chris said
"Birds of the same flock..."
"Nah not her "
"Why not? Bro let's face it feelings aside that girl is HOT she's flames "Nico said
"so what? Does that make her a prostitute? "Chris asked

"Here's a glass of orange juice you look like you need it "Anita walked over and gave Chris a glass of juice
"Yeah thanks how's your night so far? "Chris sipped the juice
"it's nice thanks for bringing us here "
"You are beautiful "Chris said as Anita blushed
"hey Chris can I steal you for a moment? "Pinky arrived

"Of course you can have him "Anita said and then walked away
"I didn't know you were coming here why didn't you tell me? "Pinky asked
"okay this has gone too far now Pinky I'm not interested in whatever you think is going on between us stop bugging me I don't like being chased "Chris walked away
"Chris I think Sugar is a prostitute "Mandla met Chris halfway
"Not you too "Chris replied
"Atleast go ask her "Mandla said
"Is everything okay "Anita appeared from behind Chris
