I stared at Jake, shaking my head lightly..
“Will you get your hands off my girlfriend’s, dude?” He asked Melvin with a deep frown.
I couldn’t complete my sentence before he jerked Melvin’s palm off mine, caught by surprise my gaze flung to Melvin and I saw him gulping the meat in his mouth quickly, almost before the moment our hand got disengaged.. I shot Jake a stare.
“And who do you think you are to touch her?” He asked, his brows narrowing completely. “She’s taken, okay?”
“I know” Melvin answered with a shrug.
“Yeah so back off and keep your filthy hands to yourself!” he yanked at him.
“Jake stop it. He’s just a friend and we’re eating!” I interrupted.
“So I should leave?” He asked.
“Yes. If you know table etiquette then you’d know that it’s improper to interrupt a meal” I said.
“And I’m being improper by telling an asshole to stop touching my girlfriend?” He asked and I shook my head.
“We’re eating Jake for Pete’s sake, we’ll talk about this later but please let us eat for now” I said and he gave me a look with his lips twitched.
“Alright, fine!” He surrendered, giving Melvin a death glare, he turned and walked away.
I sighed before facing my meal, I looked up and took Melvin’s palm again.
“Ain’t you worried about your boyfriend?” He suddenly asked.
“No. I’m more worried about lying in a casket like box and not being able to get out of it” I said but I was still a bit restless.
“I’ll understand if you’re worried or sad that he saw us.. I mean our hands-
“Why don’t you just have more meat?” I Forked a piece of meat into his mouth and he chewed, giving me a look. “And besides which normal human beings eats their meat and throws the rice away?”
“Me?” He smiled.
He swallowed the meat. “Not that I can’t eat the rice but this,” he points to the meat “Tastes more satisfying and less distasteful” he said, taking another meat.
“Oh well.. I was thinking, should we watch a movie after school at my place?”
“A movie?” He repeated “Yeah sure it’s been ages since I saw one,I mean since I became different” he said.
“Well you’ll see one today; it’ll help in your journey too” I said and he nodded with a smile.
I brought out the set of old movies from the set drawer, the packs were starting to get worn out.. It’s been ages since I watched a movie last.. I walk to Melvin and sit beside him.
“Here.. They’re mostly old movies tho, I haven’t been much of a movie person lately, mom bought new ones and they’re really nice” I said, watching him go through the films like he understood nothing of what it said.
“So what’s your favorite movie?”
“Um.. The chipmunks!” He squeals.
“Alvin and the chipmunks?” I asked surprised, he nodded “really? You like that?” I asked and he nodded.. I rolled my eyes.
“Yeah.. Who doesn’t?” He asked.
“Well me.. I mean it’s a very absurd series.. How can chipmunks talk? It’s so childish and stupid” I said.
“Well only you think that! My sis loves the movie too. She likes Theodore cos he’s calm and innocent while I like Simon cos he’s a genius” I said.
“Well you both have such lame taste. But we’re not watching that cos I don’t have it here but we can watch this” I said giving him a movie.
“Titanic?” He rolled his eyes.
“Yeah.. It’s a great movie!” I said and he shrugged. “It’s very emotional too, it’ll be a great start for you” I said.
“Um okay” he nodded.
I took the movie and played it then paused it before it could start.
“I’ll get us some popcorns first!” I said and walked to the kitchen.
I opened the microwave and made to take out the bowl of popcorn but it was hot for my palm, so I reached for the oven gloves and was about putting it on before Melvin walked in, holding my phone that was ringing.. I took it from him, setting the gloves aside on the counter.
“Please, take the popcorns out, will you?” I told Melvin and he nodded before walking away while I moved out to answer mom’s call..
“Hi mom?” I said.
“Hey honey? How’re you?” She asked.
“I’m okay and you?” I asked.
“Oh I’m good.. Are you back from school?”
I had barely completed my word before I heard a loud sound and a scream..
“Honey are you okay? Did something happen over there?” I heard mom’s voice and I dashed back to the kitchen to meet the popcorns scattered all over the floor, the China dish broken and Melvin’s palm as red as a tomato with burns..
My eyes widen as they moved from Melvin to the floor.. I looked at the counter and found the gloves still there and untouched..
“Kayla?” Mom’s alarmed voice almost made me jerk.. “What the heck happened?!”
