@ERR Restaurant 🍽🍴🍹
“500 bucks for one night” He said.
What? What is he talking about?
I walked away from him quickly and I heard him making a broken laughter.
“Chill dear” Vivian said to me. I’ve not even told her what happened but she seems to understand.
“Vi..vivan” I stammered her name.
“I’ll be right back” She said and she walked towards the man..while I just stood there and watched them.
“Hey, why are you harassing the new girl” She half-yelled at him.
“Why not? She looks so sweet” The man said and smiled mischievously.
“C’mon Gary, you already have me. Do you need to look at any other girl? ” Vivian said.
Did I hear her right?
She called the middle aged man by his name and besides, what did she just say?
Is she a prostitute?
“So… Now? ” The man asked her.
“Later, I.. I will get back to you” She whispered and then returned to me.
“Hey” She said to me.
I was just lost, re-memorising what I heard.
“Audrey” She waved her hands at my face.
“You don’t have to be too nervous okay? ” She said and I nodded, confused.
Just like Bridget had said, exactly when it was 7pm.. We received our pay which actually depends on the number of people we attended to today then we started preparing to leave the restaurant.
That man didn’t want to leave but after so much Persuasion from Vivian, he finally left but winked his eyes at me before leaving.
What sort of man is he?
Vivian and I stood outside waiting for Felix to come join us then he and Vivian can leave since they pass the same route.
“So you stay at Wearous? ” Vivian asked me.
“Yeah? ” I replied.
“Then why are you working here? ”
Oh! Anyone who lives in Wearous are wealthy people and they do not need to struggle to earn a living.
“Err..well, it’s not like I’m one very rich girl” I told her.
“Are you guys still there” Felix yelled from within the shop.
I wonder what’s keeping him …
“We are still waiting dude” Vivian yelled back.
“Uhm, Vivian” I wanted to ask her about the other man.
“That man..” Before I could continue, she interrupted me like she knew who I wanted talk about.
“Oh Audrey, he is just one of our random customers” She answered.
I frowned a bit and she knows why I was asking her about him..
“You see Audrey, don’t worry about what he said to you” Vivian said.
“What about what you said to him? ” I asked her.
“Err…I, I mean He.. mmm” She stammered kind of; ashamed.
“Never mind” I quickly said.
“He is my client, I work for him and he pays me well” She said.
Hmm! I think I fully understand the kind of work but why?
Why is she selling her own body? – for money?
Shared on whatsapp by Martino.
I was about to throw another question at her when Felix came out.
“Now, let’s go guys” He said.
“Well, I’ll be walking home alone, I stay at Wearous” I told them.
I bid them “Bye” then we departed ways.
Truth be told, Today was so stressful.
“Daddy” I called as I walked into the house.
then to his room…
“Dad” I called again when I got to his room.
“Simon” I heard Dad’s voice..He was in his room but the light were off.. I switched them on.
Then walked to his bed where he sat.
“Are you gonna eat here or on the dining table? ” I asked him.
“Simon, isn’t it stressful and tiring? Going to a restaurant after school to get what we’ll eat every now and then? Simon, we’ve got the money, why don’t you want me hire a cook or a nanny or something?” My Dad said.
“Nah, I don’t want. I don’t want extra families when we aren’t even related” I said as I began to serve him plate of pasta and chicken on the table. “I’ve eaten, here is yours” I said.
“Think about it again” My Dad, Mr Anderson said then sat upright and draw out a fork.
“Well, why don’t you get a wife?” I blurted and he paused.
“I mean it has always been you and I ever since my mom died..,lonely but wealthy. Why don’t you get a woman. I don’t mind having a step mom as long as she’s good. She’ll cook our food and you’ll have someone to spend the rest of your life with – a soulmate, Aren’t you bored with only to go to work, travel and return back to being lonely” I said.
“Dad, think about it too. There are so many women out there that wants to be your wife and my mother. Dad, it won’t kill if you get one”
“Stop it already Simon! ” Dad shunned me and I frowned.
“Seriously Dad? ” I stood up angrily.
I hate it when he yells at me, I still don’t get it whenever I talk to him about getting a woman, he gets furious.
I really want a woman I can call ‘My mom’,
He said my mom died when she gave birth to me..so unfortunate of me, I didn’t get to see her face.. there aren’t even any picture of her in the house.
I thought he won’t call me back as I walked out of his room uptightly but when I got to the door, he said..: “Why don’t you find love too and stop flirting around with so many girls?”
I simpered and left his room.
When I got to my room, I pulled off my uniform and changed into my night wears then threw myself on the bed – Reminiscing on the whole thing that happened today and Dad’s words suddenly hit me.
‘Why don’t you find love too and stop flirting around with so many girls?’
Love? Does that four letters really exist?
If Money and Love where to be placed side by side, Money would be the dominant one. Even if there’s a girl crushing on me, it would be because of my money.
Is it Jessica?
I scoffed. That one that clings around me with her friends and ask for money and expensive stuffs from me, It’s impossible to fall in love with her.
Oh my gosh, even I decide to choose a girl and forcefully fall in love with her, it won’t work.. Me? Love?
Besides, I’m just too famous to pick a girl and love her really much.
I smiled at myself then closed my eyes to sleep suddenly I remember someone new to me.
I bursted into laughter, that slum?
No way! she better find her square root.
