  •      MY REAL MONSTER 9 

    I started wandering the house, my God its big, one can easily get lost, I came to a hallway and saw pictures on the wall. I saw two old couple, I recognized them, they are the ones that hosted this party, and everyone went to greet them like they do in movies.
    I saw another couples picture, they're young, the husband have a great resemblance with the old man, if not for the mole differences in the young man face, you will think he is actually the old man in his younger age. I looked at the woman, she is beautiful, more than Amina's mother.
    "Wow" some people clearly are definition of beauty, I took a sip of the juice I have then looked down and saw the boy standing beside the woman smiling. He look like the woman in a more devilish way. I wonder when they took the picture and why I didn't see them here, well maybe they came. I looked at the boy again, he sure will be a lady killer when he grows, his eyes looked strangely familiar.
    After watching couple of other pictures, I left then came inside the kitchen, wow beautiful, I saw a cake on the counter, looks so yummy I couldn't resist the urge, I looked around and saw nobody.
    "Nobody will suspect, just a small taste" I said and went towards it, I then threw away the now empty can of juice, and moved to the cake. I sliced out small, but got greedy after the first taste. It was heaven, the way it melts in your mouth, the warm taste, I closed my eyes to savour it.
    "Barbie have been bad girl" I heard someone said I stumbled, and fell, I looked and saw Eric come out from the dark part of the kitchen where the center light hardly touch. He is holding my empty can, no wonder I never heard it hit the ground, I threw it to him and he caught it, I was too drawn by the cake to notice.
    "We ought to stop meeting like this" he said and switched on the whole light. He is still with his hoodie and mask.
    Now he's going to tell everyone one how I stole a cake, what an embarrassment, he walked closer to me slowly, still no emotions, I want to rip out that mask.
    He stopped just a foot away and took a slice of cake, he moan as he chew slowly,
    "I don't blame you barbie for wanting another, its heaven" he said, I watched as his lips move as he chew and I was dazed 
    "Thought, you would be at the camp" I stuttered
    "I snuck out" he said and took another bite.
    "Then why come here" 
    "Well barbie, I heard about a rich folks party in town, I decide to drop by and see if I can see any valuable" he said and I gasped
    "You came to steal?" 
    "At least I wasnt caught in the act like you" he said and I looked at the cake, I hate to admit he's right. "Don't mind me, continue eating, cause I might finish it alone" he said. I looked at the cake, its just too irresistible, I continued. We ate in silent, he was looking upfront and I was looking at him.
    "Haven't your mother teached you starring is wrong" he said and I felt embarrassed 
    "What can I say, its not every day you see someone wearing a mask" I said and he scoffed, I looked and saw his lips curve, did he just smile. It lasted only a second but I clearly saw it, it made my heart beat faster it was ethereal, I felt proud for making him smile.
    "If I don't have the mask, I will give you a nightmare" he said, is he that ugly, from the small part am seeing he doesn't look ugly.
    "Is it a scar" I asked, above a whisper and he turned to me,
    "Yes, very deep and ugly one" he said, I felt pity for him, I wish I can tell him I don't mind, I wish, but it will mean nothing coming from someone like me. He went silent again, I want to make him smile again.
    "You called me Barbie, but I guess you never know I can dance ballerina like her" I said and he looked at me.
    "I doubt that" he said in a bored tone
    "Then prepare to be amazed, monster" did I just call him that, way to go, it will make him feel bad
    "Sure barbie" he said with a smile and it was heaven, I thought the cake was heaven, I was wrong cause clearly its Eric's smile
    Now I have to figure out what to do, cause I have no idea how to dance it, I took off my sandals, I took my step, I slowly raise myself, standing on my toes, then tried to spin myself around, I failed, worse I landed on my butt, the impart was painful I yelped.
    The pain was numbed when I heard Eric laughed, full blow out laugh, I watch as he threw his head back laughing.
    "That Barbie, was a poor demonstration of ballerina" he said as his laugh died down, he is now wearing a smile. How beautiful.
    "I slipped" I said defending myself, he came and stretched out his arms to help me up
    "Am sure you did" he said and I took his hands, it was warm, maybe is because he always have it tucked inside his pocket, but how do I explain the milky taste in my mouth or the goosebumps, or why my heart was beating so loud I fear it will fall out. How do I explain why every sound was tuned out, every image fell away, and am standing alone with him, with his eyes guilding me to his heart.
    "This is my first time seeing a Barbie with a Zero skills for ballerina" he whispered and his vanilla scent hits me, mixed with the cake.
    "Also my first, seeing a beautiful monster" I whispered back.

    Awwww start of something new
