All guests had gone except for Eric who sat down with Cynthia on the sofa in her apartment singing along to the loud music that played on the music set.
Suddenly Eric asked, “So, when are we leaving for my place?”
She had already forgotten that they agreed to spend the night over at his place.
“Someone has to clean this mess, ” she replied.
As usual, Eric offered to help her but she declined.
“I even have something to do with Amara tomorrow morning also, ” she quickly came up with another excuse.
“But doesn’t she have work to do?” Eric was smart enough to quickly see through her lie.
“Yes, that’s why I have to be the one to do it”
“What’s even this something that you have to do? ”
“Stop asking questions Eric, it’s girl stuff!” By her tone alone, he knew he had upset her.
Her phone rang and Chidi was calling.
“Sorry I have to pick this, ” she said to him and ran to her room shutting the door behind her.
“How did your day go?” Chidi asked as she received the call
“It was awesome, I really would have loved it if you were around. ”
“I would have loved to be there for you too, but you know work has me tied down here.”
“It’s fine, I understand that you have to work.”
“Besides, I couldn’t get the ticket for Tuesday, so I got for Wednesday and Thursday instead”
“That’ll be fine.”
Cynthia ended her call with Chidi and returned back to Eric who looked a bit upset.
She gave him a kiss on the cheek. “I’ll see you on Tuesday, ” she said and then he smiled.
