Chapter 20: Message

[Unknown Number: Hi. Sorry, I can’t call you.

I’m still at the hospital.

This is Lawrence by the way 🙂

Add me on Facebook – Lawrence Lee.

Let’s message each other on messenger 😉]


I twisted and turned, stomach pressed against my bed.

I gave my number to Lawrence, and he promised to call me and only then that I hesitantly left the hospital to give Leanna’s family some time alone together.

I had been on edge waiting for his call ever since. My phone never left my sight, even when I was taking a bathe.

I immediately did what he said.

I squealed again when I saw his profile picture and wanted to check all his photos, but messaging him takes priority.

[It’s alright. I understand.

How have you been? 😀]

I didn’t want to end this God-given opportunity. I wanted to talk to him some more.

I knew that Leanna would not like it, but I couldn’t help myself, and besides, I was not at all feeling guilty for what I did to her brother.

I mean.

I really didn’t know.

And I love Lawrence.

Ever since I was beholden by those deep mesmerizing brown eyes – I had completely surrendered myself to him.

And no.

I didn’t care one bit about our age gap.

And no.

I didn’t care if he was just twelve years old.

He’ll get older.

[Been busy with school.

Can I call you Zoe? (°o°)]


I was jumping now!

I was like a girl who just received a message from her crush.

[Of course!

You can call me whatever you want.

Babe. Honey. Sweetie. Cupcake 💓]

Alright that was a joke, and I would delete it, but I pressed send instead.




It was not my intention at all.

[…. (Typing) ….]

Why does it take him so long to type?


I shouldn’t have sent that message to him!

What if he thinks that I was pressuring him into becoming my boyfriend because of what happened between us? I mean, he didn’t exactly leave anything behind when he left except for that note which had no information about him whatsoever.

It only meant that he didn’t want to see me again, right?

I bit my lips when a tear threatened to escape.

Calm down, Zoe!

Calm down.

He was not angry when he saw you again. He even gave you his number.

That thought somewhat comforted me.

[Uhm… Zoe, it is then. LOL.

So what have you been up to, Zoe? 😉]

I breathed a mouthful of relief when he didn’t block me.

Somehow, we avoided the topic of that night, and I was not about to complain since mostly, I was afraid to know the reason why he just suddenly disappeared without leaving any information behind.

Like he didn’t want to associate with me anymore.

[Been busy with school too 😳]



[Are you free tom…

*delete…. *delete…]

[There’s this awesome cafe….

*delete…. *delete]

[How’s Leanna?]

[She’s fine.

She’s sleeping now 😴]

[That’s good \(o^v^)/]



[Are you sleepy?]

I turned around and rubbed my curling toes against the mattress.



Let’s talk for a while (o^v^o)]


[What would you like to talk about?]

[Alright, let me think of a topic.

Next time, it will be you 😏]

Next time?

There’s going to be a next time!


[How about we do one of those

questioning games 😀]

I felt a rush of romantic giggling sprinting back and forth inside me.

[I’m game! 😤]

[What’s your favorite color?]

[Take a guess 😘]

[Hmmm… white?]

[Oh, come on!

I’m not that pure (-_-)]

[Hmm… pink?]

[Not that girly]


[How did you know? \(°o°)/]

[…. (Typing) ….]



What’s wrong? Why does he take so long to reply?

[Do you want the truth or the lie?]

[The truth of course 😯]

[…. (Typing) ….]

[Your undergarments at that time…

 was red (o°-°o)]

I blush – hard.

[How about you?

What’s your favorite color?]


I blushed again. If that was even possible.

Oh my god!

I felt my whole body heated up.

[What food do you like? 🍴]

[Tricky, I’m not picky but…

I love stake the most. 🍖

Medium cook.

How about you?]

[There are a lot of food that I love

from our travels 🍣🍛🍜🍢🍡

but I got to say… the best

is the Chicken Adobo with pineapples.

It goes well with rice 👌]

[What’s that? o(°o°)o]

[A classic Filipino dish.

You should try it sometime (o°v°)o]


Chicken Adobo with pineapples.

I repeated as I grabbed a pen and paper to write it down.

This is an opportunity to get to know him!

[When’s your birthday?]

[Funny you should mention that.

It’s actually two weeks from now \(^v^)/

How about you?]


[November 27.

What do you like the most in the world?]

[My family (o>-<o)]


But that’s not it!

[I mean, material things]

[You don’t have to get me a present 😌]


[I want to! (o`O´)o]



[Alright, if you insist]

[Anything you get me

is fine (/´v´)/]

What? No, it’s not!

I wanted to message him again, but he was much quicker.

[Sorry, I gotta’ go.

My parents are asking me to turn off my phone.

It’s time to sleep]


[Alright, I understand… 😭]

[Good night]

[Good night…]




The hell with restraining!

It’s soooo not like me.

[Hey, do you want to bang out sometime?]


[I mean bang sometime]



[Good donut!

I mean bang]

Fudge! Fudge!

[Calm down. LOL]


Let me catch my breath first 😂]

[Sorry. I swear.

It was the auto correct]

[Right…… 😉]

My face was literally on fire now.

[And yes.

I’d love to h a n g out with you sometime
