It did not take long after I registered for driving lessons that the coach arranged in-car sessions for me. Ever since then, my life started revolving around work and learning. Despite enjoying the sense of fulfillment I derived from my new lifestyle, I still tried to relax when I could. I would find time to watch the TV and eat some snacks to unwind.
Things had finally started to work out between Augustus and me after that unhappy incident that day. Augustus was a lot more trusting these days. Life was a lot better because Olivia had not been making things difficult for me. This had also made my relationship with Augustus better. After all, if Olivia were to create a mess and frame me, I still could not tell for sure if Augustus would stand up for me.
I always reminded myself to heed Josephine's advice when I felt overwhelmed. I should not worry about things that had yet to happen. Her words became my comfort in times like this.
Life went on as usual until Daryl called me one day.
It was the weekend and I had just finished my driving lesson that day. I was lying in bed playing games on my phone when a gush of annoyance flowed through me when I saw his name on my phone screen.
My past dealings with him had taught me that nothing good would happen whenever he called, but I still picked up his call and waited for him to speak.
