#PETER

Ever since I’ve returned, I’ve been doing my possible best to avoid Angelina,.. I just couldn’t tolerate her presence not after what she did to me.. My mom was insisting I talk to her but I made up fake promises and lies that I would meet her. So I decided in order to avoid her completely, I decided to spend my time at the film studio and spend the whole day there.

I was hoping I’d relax, but Angelina’s appearance has made that impossible.. So to avoid my mother’s nagging, I decided to spend my nights at Hotels… Sometimes, I would sleep at the studio if I got bored of the hotel.

One afternoon as I was in the studio resting… My mentor and friend, Francis called me into his office to discuss about an upcoming movie project he was planning to make.

.

Francis Okay Peter.. This movie I’m going to make is going to be a block buster and it’s going to blow the audience away but there’s a slight problem…

.

Peter Which is?

.

Francis I’m having a difficult time to find an actress for the role.. Mr. Edward suggests that his daughter must be given the role but she’s now where to be found.

.

Peter No. No.. No.. We can’t put Bianca.. She won’t cut it.. She doesn’t deserve this role.

.

Francis That’s what I thought. Even the directors have the same view.. We need someone with raw talent.. Someone new.

.

Peter I understand… Well.. Let me see if I can find that person..

.

Francis Good.. You better find one fast because there’s no time.. In about a week, we’ll start shooting and if you don’t.. I guess we’ll have to cancel the film.

.

Peter Don’t worry.. I’ll do my best.. I’ll find someone in time.

.

After that, I left Francis’s office… Just as I about to leave the building, I got a call from my mom.

.

Peter Hello!? Mom.

.

Jessica Peter.. Can you please branch to the mall and get some vegetables?

.

Peter Vegetables??

.

Jessica Yes.. I want you to get some lettuce and carrots.

.

Peter Okay…. (ends call)

.

Vegetables!? Seriously… I’m a man not a woman.. I don’t know a thing about shopping for groceries but since mom has specified the ones she wants.. I guess it wouldn’t be that hard.

After the call, I headed outside and straight to my car, after I got in, I headed straight to the mall.. Minutes later, I arrived there and headed to the vegetable section.. While I was checking out for the lettuce and Carrots.. I noticed some people staring at me.. They were even taking pictures of me.. They must have recognized who I was.. The last thing I wanted was attention, so I moved away and quicken my search for the lettuce.. I soon found the section for the lettuce and I have to say the lettuce looked so bad… They looked so pale and rough.. The carrots were good but the lettuce was a mess.. I stood for a while looking at them trying to figure out the best one I should choose.

In that moment, I noticed a woman in the place.. She too was busy figuring out with cabbage to choose, I figured out she could solve my dilemma , so I went and asked for her help… I tapped her shoulder and as soon as she turned around my heart skipped a beat when I saw it was Angelina.

I couldn’t believe it when I saw her.. Here I was trying to avoid her, and now here she is, in the flesh… My first thought was to leave the place but then I stood still staring at her.

I couldn’t believe this was Angelina.. She had changed completely.. It was like she was a different person entirely, To be honest, she looks so gorgeous and very, very, attractive.. I quickly scanned her body and saw she was fuller than last time.. Her assets were fully loaded and her skin was lighter than before, She looked a little like those Europeans b-stards abroad.

Her very presence was so radiating and alluring,.. There was just something that turned me on.. In fact all the hate I had for her melted in an instant.. God! Just what the hell was she eating in abroad.

We stood staring each other for while.. Angelina was shaking a little staring at me as if she had seen a ghost.. I too was frozen with shock… I never expected that our meeting would be so unexpected but since we’re here let’s get this over with.

I extended a greeting to her and she gasped as if she wasn’t expecting to say anything.. Angelina soon composed herself and answered me politely.

.

Angelina Uhm.. Yeah.. It’s nice to meet you as well..

.

Peter I didn’t recognize you.. You look different.. In a good way of course.

.

Angelina (blushing) Oh.. Thanks.. You too.. you’ve grown quite tall and muscular.. You look good too.

.

Peter Oh.. Yeah. Thanks.. So you’re here to get some vegetables huh?

.

Angelina Yes.. I’m done by the way.

.

Peter Well.. I’m having difficulty choosing the lettuce.. They all look so bad.

.

Angelina Yeah.. Uh… My mom has some fresh lettuce at home.. I’m sure she’ll help you with some.

.

Peter Okay then… Uh.. Are you heading home now?

.

Angelina Yes… Are you?

.

Peter Yep..

.

Angelina OK.. So what now??

.

What now??? I really have no idea.. In fact why am I talking to her?? I should be staying far away from her but I just can’t… There’s no way I can ignore her like that, not when we’ve began to have our first conversation in 6 years..

In that moment, an idea got into my head.. This would be an opportunity to find out why she did that awful thing 6 years ago but we can’t have this conversation not here in the mall, I soon thought of a place to go for us to settle this issue.

.

Peter Well.. Are you in a hurry?

.

Angelina Huh? No.. Not at all.

.

Peter Well.. I was hoping we’d find a place and catch up on lost time. Let’s talk about our time apart.

.

Angelina Good idea.. Where do you want us to go?

.

Peter Mama Nneka’s restaurant..

.

Angelina OK then. Let’s go .

.
