Remember Grace? Well, it was all about her yesterday. It was her birthday, and she didn’t inform anyone about from till we got to class. What gave her out was our class rep who checked his bio of everyone and found out it was her birthday. As the nice girl that she is, she hot a lot of people walk up to her and interestingly, some got her gifts at the spot. She was so delighted.
I and Zoe decided to take out for a surprise launch, but she declined, saying she already had a breakfast package delivered to her hostel, as so she had some of what was on the tray. Nevertheless, we all went to the eatery, and she eventually ordered a chilled drink for herself tight there.
After we were done for classes of the day, she asked if she could accompany to my hostel, and see where I actually stayed. I couldn’t help but oblige her. Zoe couldn’t come along because see to receive a package on behalf of her mum, so she left.
When Grace got to my room, she was excited and astonished. I knew she was from a rich home, so I tried to hide my embarrassment at how dull my room was, lacking all the aesthetics of a university student’s apartment. She commented about my organisation of the room and asked if I could help out with the same for hers as well. I told her it wasn’t a problem. She gisted for a while, and before we knew it, we were both sprawled on the bed, sleeping.
I hadn’t even realized that I had slept off, till I felt a vibration, just beside my belly. I turned to get the source of the vibration that was when I remembered that Grace was still around. I found out that it was her phone ringing, and so I nudged her to pick her call. Half asleep, she took the phone from my hands and received the call. After about one minute on the call, she jumped out of the bed, screaming.
I was scared, but when I saw her reaction, it was an excited scream. She signalled for me to get off the bed, and I did so confusedly, still feeling a bit sleepy. She ended the call and immediately came to hug me. She must have seen the look of surprise on my face because she then said. “Oh, I’m sorry I scared you, but I’m so excited because we are hitting the club tonight!”
I didn’t know how to respond so I simply said “Oh…” I had never been to a club before, and so this was going to be the first time. I didn’t know how to behave at a club, or even worse, what to wear to the club. With all these thoughts in my head, I later responded; “I may not be available for that”.
She stared at me like I had poo on my face, and just disregarded what I said with a shrug of her hands, and I knew she wasn’t buying my cheap talk. She went straight to my closet and began searching for party clothes. I had to admit to her that I wasn’t prepared for party life, so I had no clothes for that department. She looked like she was checking out my weight and then asked I followed her to her room. I wasn’t ready for this but I was curious to go to the club as well.
When I got to her room, it was nothing like mine. It was indeed a definition of class and comfort. She had everything from a fridge to a microwave, to a toast machine, and even a tv set! I was thrilled. She told me her elder brother had organised the club party for her, and it was his call that she received earlier in my room.
She gave me a couple of dresses to try on, and we eventually found my match. She also gave a nice pair of heels, and I had to get comfortable in those If I wanted to have a nice time at the club. We gisted a little while, and before we knew it, it was close to the time of pick up. We began rushing our makeup and fitting into our dresses. When we got into the car, I met her brother who was at the wheels, with two of his friends, who by the way were very cute.
We arrived at the destination, and that was when my mind was eventually blown…
