In The Hollow Of His Hand
There was a knock on the door. I had just come out of the shower and I assumed it was Dianne at the door. Upon opening the door, I froze at the figure I saw… The time stood still; the world stood still.
“Oh I am so sorry!” He said.
“It is okay” I replied and continued, “I thought you were Dianne, hence my reason for not getting properly dressed before opening the door.”
I stepped back and hastily wore a pair of short and shirt. He was gentlemanly enough to remain at the door whilst I dressed up after closing the door slightly.
“Yeah, about that, I wanted to pay you two a surprise visit. I only called her few minutes ago when I had difficulty locating you two. She didn’t pick up. I had to send a text message which she replied.” He said.
“You can come in.” I said.
“Thank you.” He responded as he came in.
“You’re welcome and welcome to our humble room” I said with a smile.
“Thank you once again.”
Whilst I was trying to make him comfortable, there was a thud on the door.
“Charis!!!” Dianne screamed.
“Yeah!!!” I screamed back as I opened the door.
“Jake said he was…” She begun and swallowed her words as she saw him.
She sounded like someone who had been running.
“Yeah” I uttered.
“Hello sister. Welcome.” Jake said.
“How was your trip brother?” She asked.
“It was fine.” He replied.
“I was in a class that was why I sent a text message” she said.
“You didn’t inform me…” I said as I rolled my eyes.
“I sent you a text message” She replied.
“No you didn’t!” I responded.
“Just check your phone.” She replied.
“Oh yes, you did; my bad” I said as I looked at my phone and saw her text message.
“You see…” She said.
“So what have you two been talking about since his arrival?” She whispered to me.
I was not ready for that conversation so I stylishly avoided the question.
“You must be famished; why don’t we all go out to lunch? You could invite Pete…” I said with a loud voice and whispered the latter statement to Dianne.
“I would gladly do that.” She replied with a grin.
