THE BUNGALOW: CHLOE AND LORENZO
Strapping herself by the master bed, Chloe held the bedpost admiring her embodiment by the mirror on the wall which was just beside the bed. She was cleaning the room when the urge to look herself at the mirror took her away.
‘I’m perfect!’ she said to herself as she twisted her hips in a bid to exemplify to what extent they were to sway.
Chloe was a house help in Mr. Jude’s Bungalow. It was quite a massive house.
Chloe had worked in this bungalow for quite some years. She had admired the area because she was getting a good salary; kind of a lot for a servant. She was now almost 25 years and she was having a lot of thoughts about her life. She had admired a certain boy who lived in the neighborhood just next to their bungalow. This was Mr. Naija’s son. His name was Lorenzo.
Lorenzo had also admired this lady for quite some time and had made advances which bore no fruits. He had clicked the hatat. Chloe was always waiting for the time he will get a chance to tell Lorenzo that Mr. Jude had left. She would get ample time with Lorenzo because Mr. Jude was quite a busy man. He left for work and reported back late. The reason as to why they were so much into each other is that they had met earlier in a concert where Mr. Jude had introduced Lorenzo’s parents to her. She spent some time with Lorenzo and they had a very great moment to always flashback. They were all having the urge to make advances but nobody was getting the most appropriate time.
One day, Mr. Jude sent Chloe to Mr. Naija’s place to hand over a parcel. She felt a warm feeling brushing across her chest area. She plastered a smile on her face and saw the silhouette of Lorenzo in her mind. She was sure that this time around, she would come on an eyeball to eyeball phenomenon with Lorenzo. She hurriedly rushed and put on one of her best clothes and walked out of the gate. She approached the massive gate and rung the bell by pressing the switch.
The door opened and out came Lorenzo. Their eyes met. At first, they just glared at each other suspiciously.
‘Mmmmh’ Chloe was speechless as she murmured directing her eyes on the ground.
She was swaying her body in complete shy notations.
‘Hey Chloe, come in… ’ Lorenzo glared directly at her eyes and significantly at her swaying shy embodiment.
‘I…I have been sent by Mr. Jude to give a parcel to your dad. Is he in?’ she asked in a low voice.
‘Apparently, he has just got out for a meeting in town. He will be back in the evening.’ Lorenzo responded in ultimate honesty and expressed his feelings through his face. He couldn’t speak up what he wanted to tell Chloe. He tried to speak something but couldn’t produce it. Chloe glared at Lorenzo’s eyes. This time round, she was courageous. She had seen Lorenzo becoming shy when her eyes set upon his.
She looked at him and said
‘Hey, do you have something to say? You seem to…?’
‘Oh sorry, I wanted to request for the parcel. I will give my dad when he comes back.’ Lorenzo said in a lying reflex. He had to reply something after that sharp note by Chloe.
Chloe had seen a spark in Lorenzo’s eyes. A spark that showed he had feelings for her. She felt it so strong in her heart that she came forward and gave him the parcel. When the palms of their hands touched each other in the exchange, they paused a little bit and glared at each other. They then released each other. Chloe got forward towards Lorenzo as he lowered his head towards Chloe’s. Their facial static forces were becoming stronger and stronger as they attracted each other. Their lips got closer and closer.
Just then, Chloe opened her eyes and pushed Lorenzo aside. She looked down and wiped her mouth. She held her skirt above her knees and turned back. She walked fast back to her vicinity at Mr. Jude’s. Lorenzo stood speechless at their gate watching as Chloe disappeared at a certain corner in the estate. He glanced on the ground and watched the environment for some time. He later locked the gate.
Chloe arrived at Mr. Jude and told him about her delivery. She rushed to her bedroom and sat on the bed. She held the bedpost. She smiled and held her both hands. She had an awesome romantic environment around her. Memories of today’s episode flashbacked her mind as she lay on the bed twisting in ‘agonizing’ knots. She was in love.
She got up and sat on the bed.
‘Why did I shy away?’ she asked herself, ‘why did I not disclose to him?’ her face changed to grimy and she thumped her chest area. She promised herself that the next time she got the chance to show up at Mr. Naija’s place, she would act spontaneously especially if she met that Mr. Naija’s was away.
‘Next time I’m going to say what I feel me his face.’ She vowed. She was feeling so strong about Lorenzo. She hoped that Lorenzo also felt the same. She got up and continued with her daily activities.
After 3 days, she was summoned by Mr. Jude again. She came hurriedly to him.
‘I want you to visit Mr. Jude and hand him this parcel.’ He said as he handed over a white envelope. A beam of hope rejuvenated in her heart as she took the piece of letter with great care. She got on her room and changed her clothes. She wore a green dress that exposed her bells and whistles complement with studious high heels. She elegantly walked out and headed to Mr. Naija’s.
