The Story Chapter 2

Here is the continuation of the story… hope you enjoy…

 

I woke up to the song of my ringtone, looked at the phone and before i could answer the call ended. The clock on the wall was showing 8am. Damn I wasn’t gonna wake up this early. Frustrated I check the phone to see who was calling and saw that my mom was the one who called and there were a few miss calls. I got up went to the bathroom and before i knew it there was a knock on the bedroom door.

“what is it?” I yelled from inside the bathroom annoyed. “It’s your mom miss she is downstairs!” I hear Harry’s sleepy voice calling in.

OMG! what was she doing here at this time. I opened the door to find Harry with his towel wrapped around his shoulders. I could tell that he just woke up too

“sorry bout my mom OK, tell her i will be right down”
He nodded and was on his way. I got dressed and went downstairs as quickly as i could. I saw my mom standing outside the driveway and she didn’t look so good. She looked mad. I quickly thought of what day it was and what i might have forgotten as I walked out the door and before I could think of anything she walked in the door and asked me a question I never expected.

“Where is your sister?! tell her i am here and I want to take her home!”

“hold on a minute there mom. what are you talkning about? did I miss something here? Grace is not here and I don’t know where she is.” I was really confused why she would ask me this.

“I know you are helping her run away from home so tell her to come out RIGHT NOW!” she was getting really angry and impatient.

“mom i am telling you i don’t know where she is and she is not here You can  go upstairs to my room and check if you want and i have no idea what you are talking about so calm down and tell me what happened. ”

What my mom said next was the unexpected. My sister ran away from home, my mom said they woke up and she was no longer in her bed and she had taken her stuff with her. I was totally speechless. One after another the problems kept coming in.

My sister was the most obedient person in the family and this was just the most impossible thing!

“are you kidding me mom? please shut up!” that was exactly what came out of my mouth when I heard what my mom just told me. I was so surprised that i couldn’t  think straight. “i am so sorry mom but i am in shock! how did this happen, I mean why?”I looked at my mom in shock as she started to get herself together and start talking again.

“you have to find her” she started sobbing. “your dad said he will leave us if she isn’t back home soon.”

suddenly my head started to feel hot with anger and confusion. “Now dad wants to leave?” I felt like i was going to break down that moment and then. I was so speechless and didn’t know what to do. My boyfriend went missing, now my sister ran away from home and then my dad wants to leave. I was going out of my mind. I took a deep breath asked my mom to go home for the time being, and I will take care of it from here. i tried to be as assuring as I can and tried to keep my composure as I saw my mom and aunt drive off in the car.

when I thought there were enough things going through my mind my phone started ringing again and this time it was Bob, a guy i just met last week before bill went missing. I didn’t feel like answering but i was feeling so confused and angry and everything you can feel at the same time that I answered the call and started blurting out everything to him.

“whoa, take a deep breath and slow down girl, get yourself together i will be right
there in a minute OK just wait.”

I hung up the call and sat in the middle of the doorway to calm myself down. I didn’t notice all my staff had gathered in the living room looking at me and none of them were brave enough to come over to ask me anything. “How long have you guys been there?” I asked slowly.

“enough to hear everything.” Berry sd as she ran upstairs and closed her room door scared that i might get angry.

OK great now all my staff knows my problem. damned! i hated that feeling of no control over anything at that moment. “just go guys, leave me alone OK.” I saw them go back to their rooms one by one and before long I heard Bob’s Car in the driveway.

I looked at bob and he looked at me both keeping silent for what i felt like hours which didn’t even reach a minute in real life. Thee was a concerned look on his face as he asked me if I was OK and if I wanted to go look for my sister or not. I just shook my head and didn’t answer anything. I tried to keep my tears inside like I always do but they just kept rolling down my face. I know at that instant Bob didn’t know what to do because he started pacing back and forth in front of me. He opened his car doors and asked me to take a seat. I closed my eyes took a deep breath and sighed as I sat myself on the passenger seat and started to recollect myself.

“I am so sorry for dragging you into this. I think I need some time for my self I just woke up and I get this new about my sister and dad and I think I need to get myself together first Bob.” I didn’t want him to stay there longer afraid that i was going to break down again.

“it’s OK I understand, anyway I got you some breakfast. Just give me a call if you need anything OK girl.” He gave me the packed breakfast and waved goodbye as he drove off in the distance.

I looked at my phone and scrolled through my contacts. stopped at Bill’s name and sighed “where are you bill? I need you right now…” I wasn’t in the mood to eat so I knocked on the boys’ door and asked if anyone wanted the packed breakfast that bob bought for me. Zack was the first to take it out of my hands and grinned as he looked into the container. “Oh wow! it’s nasi lemak ayam lah! yumm!”

“bon appetite” i said as I walked back upstairs to my room. I closed the doors making sure it was locked before i slumped myself back into bed just looking at the spinning fan hanging from the ceiling. I tried to get the sense of what was going on at that moment. I can’t believe that this is happening to me. Why now? All the possible thoughts came into mind and before long i fell asleep.

I woke up to the loud banging on the door and David’s loud voice outside the door. “oh shit! what time is it?” I quickly reached out for my phone to see the time and it was 6.30pm! I was supposed to start working at 6pm!

“Lyn wake up! are you still alive? you are supposed to be at work!” David kept banging on the door. David was my BOSS! Gosh i have never been late before. This is so bad. How was I supposed to explain this. I couldn’t think straight. I didn’t care what happened next. I quickly opened the door “sorry i think I dozed off,” i said softly “i don’t feel so good David can i take the day off?”

The expression on his face changed from anger to concern. “Berry told me what happened this morning., are you ok? if you want to take the day off go ahead. You always come to work during your off day anyway right?”

I just shrugged and kept silent. There was nothing else i wanted to say. i just didn’t feel like talking to anyone.

“ok, i’ll be on my way then just call if you need anything ok.” I nodded and waved at him as he closed my door behind him. I switched the lights on and turned the air conditioning down. I am so not in control of the situation now. Usually I am in control no matter what came up. it was so awkward. I felt so stupid and useless. I didn’t know how to describe the feeling inside. I wanted to cry, scream, throw all the things at the wall, it was so indescribable. Then I felt my tummy growl. Oh great! i haven’t eaten anything yet! I don’t feel like eating but I was Hungry!

I don’t know why I kept checking my phone when I knew that Bill wasn’t going to call me anymore. I guess I just wanted to know where he was and why he just decided to disappear. I scrolled through my contacts wondering who to call. I needed someone to talk to. As I scrolled through the contacts I noticed there were a few unread  messages. I read through them one by one and there was a message from Bob. “Hey Girl. Hope you’re Ok. have you eaten yet? Just text or call if you need anything” How I wished that was Bill texting me, and not Bob.

Before I knew it i fell asleep again and I was only awaken by the ringing of my phone. It was Jane.

“Babe what’s up? why aren’t you at work? Gary and I have been texting you all night are you ok?”

“It’s a long story babe, we’ll talk about it when i see you guys ok? I don’t feel like talking about it now.” I really didn’t want to talk over the phone and being alone I hated that. I always do something stupid if i am stressed out so I would rather not think about it at that moment.

‘Ok babe if you say so. See you soon and don’t do anything stupid over there ok?

I ended the call and picked up a novel that I was reading but couldn’t seem to focus on reading the damned book. I tossed the book back on to the bed and covered my face with my hands and the tears started to come down my face again. I picked up the phone to read the other messages.

First message was from Berry
Berry :- Maam we are going to go to Cafe Rio to get some food you want anything?
me: Yeah just get me anything. starving tq XOXO

2ND message was from my mom
mom: hey don’t forget to update me on your sister ok. Dad is getting impatient tq mom
me: ok mom will update you a.s.a.p

3rd message was from Gary:
Gary: hey babe, where you at? you sick or something why aren’t you at work and why aren’t you answering my calls. Oh Jane was trying to call too. loves Gary boy.

the last message was from Jane
Jane: Babe where are you?
Jane: Why aren’t you answering?
Jane: are you ok?

i didn’t reply gary and jane’s messages. minutes later I heard the girls and boys arrive from work so I went downstairs to see what they bought for me to eat. I didn’t feel like eating but I was thinking whatever just give it a try you might be hungry.

As I opened the door for them Berry startled me when she barged in with the other girls just running into me and looked so happy. I looked at Harry and he was holding his laugh in. “please guys not another issue i have had enough today” i said asking for an explanation from Berry. She pointed at the door and asked me to come out.

I am Back after soooo Long! with New Yarn in The House! And a new story!

I have been in the dark this past year and so I didn’t get the chance to write anything in the blog even though I had made so many projects. Well I still need to edit the pictures before i put them up here but I have been thinking so much and I decided that I might start to write a story.

Have a read through…

write a comment if you have any feedback coz it might be boring…

Here goes:

I still remember that very evening in the year of 2004 the first time we met. Even though I don’t remember the exact date I can still see it clearly like it just happened yesterday.

I was doing my daily routine as manager on duty at the sandbar breathing in the warm sea breeze in the late evening just thinking of how may day was and all the trouble I went through today. It was my Off day but i still came to work knowing there would be nothing for me to do back at the hostel. I had too many things on my mind and being by myself at the hostel was not a good idea. So I left for the cafe just before dark and had dinner at the food court just across from the sand bar where I used to be a waitress before I was promoted to outlet manager. I checked my phone frequently hoping Bill would call or message, but it was just silence and nothing from him.

Usually I would walk from the cafe to the sandbar to check on the staff. As I walked my way up the stairs to the bar and greeted the customers that were at the bar that evening. Most of them were the regulars so I had my share of hi’s and how are you’s from them as I head up to the counter. Sandbar was an all girls operated bar and most of the regulars came here because of the ladies. Well most of them. We would dress up in fancy pareos and sexy outfits and we just kept them coming back every evening for more. We were the entertainers, bar tenders and waitresses and also their friends. Nearly all our customers knew us by name. We were to top performing outlet compared to the cafe located at the other end of the beach which was the bigger and head outlet. I always felt proud of that even though we only had less than 15 tables to serve we still beat their sales every single day!

As I said my hi’s to one our regulars to head off to the bar where my girls were chatting away I heard a faint voice calling my name. I turned and there he was my not so close friend Ryan sitting in the corner end of the sandbar with his friends. He had that smile on his face that also made me smile even if I was down. I made my way over to his table and he asked me to join them for a few drinks. It was my off day anyway so I agreed and joined them for a couple of drinks and a few cigarettes. Ryan worked next door from the cafe and we had a chat every now and then so I guess it wasn’t wrong to hang with his friends for a while. He introduced me to his friends and well we just basically drank and talked and I didn’t realize it went on for a couple of hours.

The staff were probably relieved that I was sitting down and drinking so I wouldn’t pay attention to whatever they were doing. I didn’t care because it was my off day anyway. As we were chatting and laughing away. A guy in front of me offered me his cigarettes. I looked at the box and it was Marlboro Reds. “no thanks” I said and told him I had my own. I tried to look at his face directly I mean “eye contact” but it was impossible. He was in the dark and all i could see was his smile as he offered me the cigarettes. Ryan kept bugging me and giving me hints that he wanted free drinks so i called one of the staff to give them a bucket under my bill.

After a while they decided that they had to go and I waved goodbye to Ryan and his friends. To my surprise one of his friends tapped my shoulders and the minute i turned around i see his phone in my face and he was asking for my number. Wow that was surprising. Well I always gave my number out to the customers so i thought it was the right thing to do. I gave him my number and watched him as he keyed in the numbers to his phone. He walked off and waved goodbye.
“Phiewph~~~” Glad that was over.

As I walked over to the bar the girls were whispering amongst themselves and giggling. I gave my curious face and asked them what the story was and what they were giggling about. They pointed at the group of guys that just left as I looked in the distance i saw that it was Ryan’s group. I gave them that does it look like I care stare and shrugged my shoulders.

Berry said “that guy that shone his phone into your face ma’am he was so cute. what is his name?”

“really?” I said trying to remember what he actually looked like.

“I think his name is Sam. How could you see his face in the dark?” I asked her.

“I was sitting right opposite him and I don’t even remember what he looked like.” I said giggling away as i walked myself into the bar to check the stock. I I could still hear the girls giggling and talking about how cute Sam was and How great it was if they could get him as their boyfriend. don’t know why they would go head over heels for some guy they didn’t know and imagine him to be their guy. That is just so ridiculous. I giggled to myself and looked into the stock take wishing the day was over sooner so i can go back and sleep.

“well ladies get ready for closing and start counting the stock. I am going to the cafe to check on the guys, will be back in a jiffy.” I told them as i put the stock take file back on the bar counter and walked my way out of the bar into the darkness all the way to the cafe.

As I walked slowly feeling the sea breeze and breathing the warm salty sandy beach air thoughts started running through my head.
“hmmm…How calming” I sighed as I sat myself down on the sitting area beside the beach and watched the waves hitting the sand the sound of the waves really calmed my mind. I looked at my phone hoping there was a miss call or a message for Bill but yet again I was disappointed. It had been days or maybe weeks that I didn’t hear from Bill. He just disappeared without a word and I was going crazy wondering where he could be and why he just stopped calling me. I was sad and angry all at the same time. I remembered the last time we spoke, it was normal, nothing was wrong. The next day i called him his Phone was out of reach and he just disappeared. This wasn’t like him. I shook the thought away and got up.

I Walked towards the cafe where the customers were starting to pack up and go home. “Hey boys! hope u got good news for me today” I said as I walked over to the cafe counter and greeted the bar tenders and cashier on duty. A thumbs up sign from Harry was more than enough to tell me that everything went well that night. As I sat myself down on the bar stool in front of the bar counter I saw Harry placing a drink in front of me. I gave him the who is it from look. He just pointed to the middle of the floor area where i caught a glimpse of my friends just sitting there laughing away. I took my drink and walked over to them and sat myself in an empty seat. Jane gave me a hug and started asking me about Billy. “o please don’t mention him it makes me feel like the world is spinning when you talk about him.” I said as i sipped at the Long Island drink that she bought for me. “I just wish I knew where he was” sighing as i looked at my phone again.
“OK just forget she said that and lets have some fun!” Gary who was just sitting opposite Jane placed his glass up in the cheers position. The others automatically hit their mugs and glasses against his and i joined too with a smile.

Gary had that smile that always made me forget the bad day that i had. He was those guys that would like you and you just don’t have the feelings for him. I felt so comfortable around him and I did try to accept him but never could. I was glad that he could accept that fact and accept me as a friend and not force me into a relationship more than that. I felt his hand stroke my hair as he said “don’t worry babe, everything will be OK. I am always here just remember that” I nodded and smiled back feeling relieved that I had so many friends that care about me and was there for me when I was feeling down.

I listened to the live band playing the last song Hotel California and didn’t realize that Jane had sent a request to the band for me to sing a song. I was expecting the band to pack for the night when I heard my name being called out to sing a request from a customer. I walked over to the band and read the request. “cant take my eyes off you sing your heart out babe love Jane” I pointed a finger to Jane and saw her put that cheeky smile on her face as she poked her tongue out to tease me.

I always loved singing and it always takes the stress of my head and all the problems just disappear when i start singing. As I sang the song I felt relief and thanked Jane as I walked off the stage that night. “thanks babe you really know how to make me feel better.” I gave her a hug and headed off to the bar to tell the guys to start closing up the outlet and start counting their stocks as I head up to the sandbar. I waved a giant goodbye wave and gave Jane a call me sign before I headed off to Sandbar and saw her nod in agreement.

I don’t know whether I walked fast or I ran but the next thing I know I was at sandbar and the girls had already closed the outlet and was waiting for me to verify the stock information and the till out the cashier for the night.

By the time I was done they were already waiting for me right outside the food court. We walked to the cafe together and as I finished tilling out the cashier at the cafe and verify the stock there the guys had finished cleaning the area and the place was empty. All I could see were the staff and the security guys walking their rounds. We would always walk home from work, so after giving them the appreciation for such a great night and how well they did for the night we decided to head for home.
Everyone was hungry and nothing was opened at that time except the 7-eleven on the way home so we decided to drop by and by some cup noodles, after eating we headed straight home. Once again I reached for my phone and checked for any messages or miscalls from Bill. Still no luck. I put my phone away and joined the guys as we walked back to the hostel.
