(She’s too Perfect)
By: Faith Lucky.
I stopped dancing when I noticed someone standing and staring at me.
Oh my God!!
My feet became cold instantly as I stared at him, trying to understand if it were a dream or something.
What’s he doing here?? I mean, I thought they were all having dinner?
Oh my God!!
He continued staring speechlessly and finally, started walking towards me, making my heart beat faster than a party drum.
Oh my God! What’s he doing, please?
I disconnected the headphones from my ears and watched him as he came closer and stood in front of me. I noticed a stain on his dress.
“S…sir” I said in a cracked voice.
“Hi” he muttered and leaned on the bars of the balcony.
I couldn’t even feel my heart anymore. What am I to do? Should I run away?
“Your name is Maxine?” He asked and I nodded slowly, wondering how he knew.
“You are…the lady at the bar, right?”
“Y…Yes” I replied with my eyes dancing on the floor.
“You’re quite a good dancer. Good job” he complimented and I had to lift my eyes to look at him..
My eyes beamed but I tried not to show the excitement.
“Thank you sir” I said with a little smile.
We remained silent for a while.
“Well…I was on my way to the guest room to use some water on this. Would you mind…showing me the way?” He asked, pointing to his shirt and my heart skipped.
He wants me to accompany him to the guest room?
Oh my God
“Um…okay, sure” I replied and took the lead, feeling so nervous.
Noah was right behind me!
Like…Noah – the guy I’ve always admired!!
I kept praying I don’t miss any step and slip and luckily, we got to the guest room successfully.
“This is it, sir” I said politely as I held the door open for him.
He nodded and walked in and urged me to come in as well.
I gulped nervously and followed him in and he proceeded into the toilet.
I exhaled deeply as I stayed alone in the room. Gosh; that was so scary.
I sat on the bed and placed my hands on my chest, trying to calm down my nervousness. I still couldn’t believe it – Noah was close to me.
Holy Christ! How did he even get to meet me at the balcony?
After a while, he came out of the toilet, his dress looking better than before. I couldn’t believe this was the same guy I only saw on TV’s and billboards.
“Are you part of the Star Dance competition?” He asked and I shook my head.
“Why? You’ve got a great talent”.
“Yeah- I…. I just couldn’t meet up. Maybe, next time”,I replied and he nodded and sat next to me on the bed.
Huh? Isn’t he returning to the dining?
Just then, his phone started ringing and he brought it out from his pocket and picked the call.
☎Why’s it so difficult knowing who she is?
He bent his head and itched his eyes.
☎Listen to me, I really wanna know that lady’s identity. She isn’t a ghost, is she? And I’m pretty sure she doesn’t wear a veil her entire life. She must have friends – people that know her. Even dancing at the party – she had make up and costume – she didnt do them herself, Seth. They were done by people – people who saw her face!
So, let it be known across the country – pass this information to every news organization – anyone who gives me the identity of the Crazy dancer will be rewarded awesomely by me beyond imaginations.” he said on the phone and I turned in a flash to look at him.
I was trying so hard to control my anger as I boiled within me. Why the hell did my plans have to scatter, huh? Why did Noah insist on going alone to the guest room?
“Um…Honey” Richard suddenly called.
“Can I speak with you for a second, please? ”
“Huh? Is there a problem?” Mrs Sigmund asked.
“No, no, not at all. Please, don’t panic. I just…need to inform her of something urgent” Richard replied and looked at me and we stood up together.
What’s wrong with him? Why does he have to request a conversation in the middle of such dinner?
We took the stairs and stopped when we got to the quiet passage, not realizing we were in front of the guest room.
“Hey, Richard. What’s wrong? What’s so important?” I asked as we stood facing each other.
“There’s a problem, Hannah” he replied with a worried look.
“I just got a text – it’s Rex. He wants us to release Maxine to work as his personal maid in the mansion. And he’s using some threats on me if I should refuse”.
I gasped in shock
Noah and I were about leaving the bed when we heard some voices outside room – obviously close to the door.
I could recognize them – it was my aunt and uncle. What were they talking about?
Noah stood up and went closer to the door and I also did same.
We stood close to the door and their voices became clear enough.
They were talking about me!
“Why would Rex threaten you to release Maxine to work as his personal maid?” I heard aunt asked and the agony came stirring in.
“What?” Noah flinched and I turned to see him wearing a crumpled look.
Oh my God! He’s also listening to them.
