“I have an idea guys” Andrew suddenly said. “Alright we are all ears” Bob replied
“This is gonna spice everything up bit” Andrew added. “ Common dude, just say it already ” John said eagerly.
“Alright this is what we're gonna do”..
Jake suddenly paused when he heard a knock on his door, He walked slowly to the door and opened it sightly, he peeped out and saw his three friends standing on his doorstep.
“What's going on” Jake asked staring at the confusedly. They pushed him out of the way and went in. “Can you guys just say what is wrong you know I hate suspense” Jake said.
“Alright, we've been pondering on something lately and we would like to..” “Hey john, just skip to the point” Bob said.
“okay, so you're gonna go shopping with her” John said. “You're crazy. The deal was to allow her stay here for a month, not go around shopping and and having dinner dates with her!” Jake yelled angrily.
“good, we might include that later. But first you have to go shopping” John said.
“Alright that's it, you guy should leave my room” Jake said and pointed at the door, “you don't have a choice, you're gonna do it!” Bob said and chuckled.
He walked out and Andrew also did, John sat there looking around. “And what the hell are you waiting for” Jake asked him.
“Me too” John asked. “No you can stay” Jake said picked up his shoe. “Good, I really thought you were gonna insist on..what the fuck!” john yelled and dodges the shoe Jake threw at him, he quickly sprinted out of the room.
“psychopaths!” Jake said and slammed his door.
It was in the middle of the night, a loud noise was suddenly heard. The men ran out of their rooms and asked each other what the notice was all about.
“Where's Jake ” John said and rushed to Jake's room. “Hey Jake, open up” John said and banged the door.
“Go away" Jake yelled. “Did you hear the loud noise " John asked.
“It wasn't from here so go away!" Jake yelled. John left his doorstep and went to the others. “It's not from his room, let's go check on her" John said and walked to Claire's doorstep.
He knocked and tried to open the door but it was locked, “Hey Cinderella, are you okay in there” John asked.
“It's Claire and am okay ” Claire yelled. “oh you're awake, did you hear the sound" John asked.
“I didn't hear anything, goodnight " Claire yelled. “This is weird, where did the noise come from" John asked his friends.
“I have no idea, but I think imma go sleep back" Bob said and yawned. He left and went to his room.
Andrew turned and entered his room too, “Hey dude, that's my room!" John said to the sleepy Andrew.
Claire confirmed if they had all gone by slightly opening her door and peeping outside, they had all returned to their rooms. She quickly rushed to the Ac hanged on the wall and adjusted it back.
She had hit it with a mopping stick causing it to turn off, she had to do it cause she was finding it hard to sleep in the cold room. She finished covering it and went to back to her bed and slept comfortably.
It was morning already and everyone was still sleeping cause it was a Saturday. Claire was the first to wake up in the house. She stretched and left her room.
She went downstairs and met the guys watching TV. “the plane crashed left about 50 people dead” Claire stared at the TV confusedly.
“Where did this happen” Andrew asked John, “,it happened in our city's airport two days ago! " John replied.
“Shit” Claire yelled and rushed back upstairs, she quickly picked her phone and dialed her dad's line. She was relieved when he picked the call.
“Hey dad are you.." “Hello this is not your dad, I think he died in the aeroplane crash, Hey Bridget, this phone belongs to one of the victim Right ” A feminine voice said.
“is this a joke, how did you find his phone in the crash " Claire asked as her heart beat increased. “we found the phone luckily, by the way the plane didn't completely explode" the woman said.
Claire phone dropped from her hand, “No this can't be happening, my Dad is not dead. He is definitely not dead!!" Claire yelled and fell to the floor.
She cried her eyes out. Her door suddenly opened and the boys walked in. They walked to her and asked her what happened, She explained everything to them and they sympathized with her.
“i need to go see my step mum now” Claire said and stood up to leave, “I'll take you there, you won't stay long right " John said.
“No let me do it, Am so sorry you lost him so early. Let's go dear” Bob said and held her hand, “hold up, I'll do it" Andrew said.
“you don't even know where she lives” Bob said, they all began to argue yelling at each other on top of their voices like women.
Claire stared at them as they argued, she silently walked out and boarded a cab home. She went in and met her step mum sitting with a sober face. She was staring at the News on the TV.
Claire walked to one of the chairs and sat, she looked around to check if Mitchell was somewhere close, “Where's Mitchell ” Claire asked her.
“Claire, your dad is dead ” she said. “I know but there's nothing we can do to bring him back, we gat to move on" Claire said.
She stood up and walked to her room, she laid on her bed and cried her eyes out. She soon slept off after hours of sobbing!.
She was woken later by a knock on her door, Claire stood up and went to her door, she opened it and Mitchell was standing on her door step.
“The men are here to see you" Mitchell said and walked away. “They have finished arguing already” Claire asked herself as she walked to her bathroom.
She washed her face with some water and wiped her face with a towel. She picked up her phone and walked out of the house.
“Hey” Bob said as Claire walked to them. she didn't respond but just went to the car and sat in the back seat. “watsup!” John asked sitting in the driver's seat.
Claire nodded and looked away, Bob got in the car and they zoomed off.
“They're gone” Mitchell frowned as she sat back on the chair, she had been peeping out through the window and watching Claire got in the car.
“she now goes around in exotic cars, how long will this continue mom" Mitchell asked with a sad face.
“This week we mourn your Dad.. ” “He's not my father!" Mitchell said, interrupting what her mum was saying.
“ok, we're gonna mourn your step dad first, then we'll deal with her later" She said.
