They both got into Richard’s car and Richard ordered his driver to move the car.
Richard tried to avoid Nicky’s talk by throwing away his face out of the car through the window.
The silence was so boring and Nicky decided to start up a conversation.
“Richard, why did you leave the school without telling anyone? I searched for you but I couldn’t find you. I became so worried that I had to go to your place. It was when I got there that I found out that you were no more staying in school. Your house was empty” Nicky continued talking without even minding if Richard was listening to what she was saying or not.
How can I work with this lunatic of a girl? I was even trying to get over the impact she made on me and she just appeared from nowhere. What I’m I going to do? Or, should I send her away? Oh no!
At the end of the day, Richard asked his driver to drop Nicky at her place and pick her up the next day.
The next day, Richard got to his office and on entering inside his office he picked up a card. It was an ID card.
“Nicky? So her name is Nicky Smith? a lunatic with such a beautiful name”, he thought to himself.
Not so long after his arrival, Nicky entered.
She came in and greeted Richard.
After greeting Richard she started searching for something as she scattered everywhere where.
Richard kept quiet and watched her as she scattered everywhere all in the name of searching for something.
The fact that she was talking and lamenting while searching amused Richard that he had to ignore her for a very long time.
She continued searching until she became tired of searching, it was almost an hour.
Then she decided to ask Richard.
“Please did you see my ID card?” she asked Richard as she used her finger to wipe away the sweats on her forehead.
“You mean this? “Richard asked as he raised the ID card he picked earlier.
“Oh my God! that’s what I’ve been looking for and you kept quiet all this while” she angrily said.
“You never asked me”
“Oh God do you know you’re a…do you know I’ve spent almost two hours searching for this?”
“You searched for only an hour so don’t exaggerate the time”
“Gosh! So, you were even checking the time for me? this is pure wickedness”
“Is this how you suppose to thank me for picking and keeping your ID card for you? If I knew, I would have asked the cleaner to put it into the waste bin”
“Thank your stars you did not, because I would have shown you the stuff I’m made of,” she said.
“Which stuff?” Richard asked trying hard to hold back his laughter” I already know the stuff you’re made of and it’s no other thing than talking. That’s the only thing you know how to do best ”
Seeing how hard he was trying to hide his laughter, she became amused.
“Whatever, thank you for picking it but I hope you didn’t look at the content”
“Then how did I know it was an ID card? you’re really crazy” he murmured the last sentence to himself.
“What did you say?”
“Alright. What would you like me to get for you, coffee? tea? bevera…”
“None” Richard cut in not wanting to listen to her long story.
“None? Why? Don’t you know that morning coffee or tea is good and healthy for your body? You’re supposed to…”
“Okay go and get me coffee” he finally gave in knowing that she would not let him be until he agrees. It was never his intention but the lunatic girl would not want to hear of it until he takes something.
This lunatic girl will surely be a very big problem for him but he wondered why he had suddenly lost the willpower to send her away. Maybe it’s because she is fun to be with and nothing more.
At 2 o’clock in the afternoon, Richard left the office and Nicky quickly followed him.
“Where are we going?” She asked him as she walked with him.
“Okay, where are you going?
“Better. If you must know, I’m going to somewhere but I have to branch to my house first.
“Nicky entered into Richard’s house and almost fainted.
It was an earthly Paradise! Does a place like this really exist in this world? Nicky thought.
“Wow! Your House is very beautiful” she finally announced.
“Please don’t pull down my building with those big eyes of yours”
“Heish! You can’t even say thank you?”
“Me? Thank you? For what? Are you here to make me thank you? Seeing that Richard was not ready to talk to her she decided to make the first move.
“Are you okay?” She asked him.
“Are you sick?”
“Do I look sick to you?”
“Then what did you go inside a psychiatric hospital to do that you don’t even want me to go with you. Or are you hiding something?”
“Something like what?”
“Is your gay lover working there?”
Oh God! gay lover again? so she has not stopped saying rubbish?, he thought.
“What rubbish are you saying? which gay lover are you talking about? what even gave you the impression that I’m a gay? do I look like one?”
“You behave like one”
“You’re not interested in girls”
“I’m not interested in boys? have you seen me with any guy before? Where did you even get that stupid information from”
“Back then in school”
“Back then in school? and you believed it? Well I’m not wrong when I think you’re senseless”
“No it’s me”
