Hair strands out of place, buckled knees, forehead creased from exhaustion. Nothing beats working in a place you detest.
“I need a vacation or at least a party, else, I might become something you don’t like”. I told him as I sat on my bed leaving my body to sag.
“Oh dear, you need something exciting to get your groove back on. When last did you visit Uptrennd city?” He asked. “It’s been a while”
Out of curiosity and a deep longing to go back to something I love and that gives me a sense of belonging, I travelled back to Uprennd City. I had barely gotten to my island when my phone beeped.
Ti-Elle: There’s a party on Friday courtesy of Mr E. You wanna come? Zee Dee is paranoid and suspects foul play
You must have been reading my mind all day to throw a party at this exact moment Mr E. Don’t worry Ti-Elle, at the mention of the word “party”, every exhaustion was replaced with enthusiasm to find a dress. I immediately sent a message back
Tori_vickii: HELL YESSS
For all I know, Zee Dee has so many qualities but being trusting isn’t one of them. She’s always suspicious of everyone. If she’s going to spend quality time suspecting his moves rather than getting ready to have the time of her life, that’s on her.
Regardless, I make a mental note to pick out a dress for her in case she finally decides a minute too late.
If Mr E wants to throw a party and is giving us a week to prepare, I better be ready. Whatever the reason for the party, we show up and play along. I’m not going to pass off on an offer to enjoy myself. Not when there’s going to be free food and booze. Besides, my body has been asking for it for a while now.
Zee Dee might also be right to suspect Mr E’s intentions. I wouldn’t put anything past him. Don’t worry, behind this elegant face is a feisty one you don’t want to mess around with. Besides, the whole inhabitants of Uptrennd city would be together, better think twice.
