Junk

After the stupid argument that we had, I went to the bathroom and had a quick face wash. I felt a bit sticky from all the products used in the salon. I took the face towel and wiped off the water off my face. I then applied Vitamin E oil all over my face. The …

New Look

After about two hours, Lauren turned the seat around and put me directly infront of the mirror. I gasped!!! I touched the left side of my hair. I could not believe it. I looked so different! She had made my hair into a wavy asymmetrical bob hairstyle. The blonde highlights beautifully ran through the hair. …

Sunday

I opened my eyes slowly. I could see the light through the bedroom windows. The curtains, maroon with white embroidered flowers, swayed slowly from the Air conditioning system above it. I stretched my hands and got my phone which was on the bedside cabinet. It was 9.16am. I could hear noises coming from the kitchen. …

Grab It

Just before nine, Chloe dozed off. I carried her to her bed, removed the clothes she had and put on her pajamas. She was too sleepy that she did not even wake up through this. I went to the bathroom and brushed my teeth. As I was rinsing my mouth, I felt a hand touch …

To Life

We found the nanny and Chloe singing along a kids song. She ran towards us as soon as we stepped in the house and gave us big hugs. I went and sat next to the nanny. “Hey, how have you guys been?” I asked. “We have been good.” She replied. “But Chloe did not eat …

The Burial

The drive was smooth. The roads were clear all the way. At about fifteen minutes out of town, Fred stopped the car after a bridge and we got out to enjoy the scenery. It was beautiful. The calm dark blue water of the lake made everything look so perfect. We took some photos then continued …

Dinner

The week dragged on so slowly. On Friday evening, Fred and I were seated at home discussing about how and what time we will go to the funeral the next day. “So what time is the funeral?” Fred asked. “It will start at noon. There will be a church service before the body being buried …

Wakey Wakey

“I am wasted.” Fred said in between his breath. “Why?” “You make me go crazy.” He said and walked to the bathroom. I followed him. I went to the toilet, peed and started wiping myself. He too, was busy wiping himself before he wore his boxer again. He looked at the clock on top of …

Come Get It

Lying next to Fred in bed, I started telling him about what my mum told me yesterday. My childhood friend Shawn mother had passed on and I had to go to the funeral and be there with the family. “What caused her death?” Fred asked. “She had a clot in her heart.” “Damn! That’s so …
