It was a year I had been with Alice. We did everything together. I cared for that girl like no one could imagine. I would of done anything for her. There wasn’t a time, I would not think about her when we weren’t together.
Everyone knew us for being the happiest couple in our town, Little Wood. I thought we would be together until we grew old…I was wrong.I finished work last Thursday earlier than usual; I thought it would be nice to surprise Alice with an exquisite meal. Just as I started to prepare the beginning of the meal I heard Alice coming up the stairs to our flat. I ran to the door as quick as I could.
“Hi Alice, Sorry but is it possible if you just went out for an hour or so and then come back?” I asked”Ben, I’ve just had a long stressful day at work, and I would love to just crash on the sofa, why what you up to?” Alice replied”Well that would be telling,” I said. I gave Alice these soppy eyes that would of then hopefully made her agree to come back later.” Ben.
I don’t have a clue what you are up to, but when I come back it better have been worth the wait. I’m so tired!” she said” Oh that’s great. Thanks babe, come back at 8″, I replied.
The eyes obviously worked then I thought to myself. As I peered through the window to make sure she had actually gone, she was calling some one on her mobile. I couldn’t hear exactly what she was saying. It must have been quite important though. She was looking at her watch and looking unsure of what to do. What made me curious, though, was that she was putting lip-gloss on her lips.
Alice never wore makeup. ‘It was probably nothing’, I just kept repeating in my head to myself.Two long hours had passed. The time was now 9.15 pm. There was no sign of Alice.
I felt worried at this point. Alice was a vulnerable young girl. She always lets herself into all kinds of trouble. Her mobile was switched off and I thought that she always left it on.
I gave my friend Brian a ring because they always spent a lot of time together. He sounded in a hurry, as if he was hiding something from me. He hadn’t seen Alice. I thought I would look out the window just to see if maybe she was just walking up the road. She wasn’t. I didn’t know where she was. I looked in the cupboard to see if she had left her mobile behind. This is where she always left her mobile when she didn’t need it.
Just as I was about to shut the cupboard door after not seeing her mobile, a small box had been brought to my attention. I opened it carefully trying not to rip the edges encase Alice knew I was peering around in her belongings. It was a pregnancy test!”Why hasn’t Alice told me she may be pregnant,” I said to myself. I spoke to soon.
The test had been shown positive. Is it my baby? When did she get this? There were a number of questions I wish I could ask her. I didn’t no whether to smile or to go absolutely off the wall!Alice finally arrived home. Even though I was relieved to see her safe I still needed the erg to shout at her about a number of things.”Where the hell have you been, I’ve been worried sick about you!” I said.”Ben, I’m sorry I was meaning to phone you.
I just got caught in some traffic that’s all”, she explained.”Caught in traffic? Caught in bloody traffic! Do you even think for one minute that you would be two hours late from being caught in traffic when you can’t of gone far! Actually, no, I take that back. You were probably meeting up with that person you were calling on your ‘mobile’ just as you were leaving!” I shouted.
“Look I am sorry Ben. If this thing you were making was so important then why didn’t you just call me?” she said.”Ha! When could I of done that then Alice? When your phone would just suddenly turn its self on?” I said.”Oh, my phone must have ran out of battery.
” She said.”Oh whatever Alice. I don’t care really. You do what you wont to do and see where it gets you.” I said.
I left it there. I didn’t want to argue with Alice. She’s my girlfriend and I just care for her and want to look out for her. Is that such a crime to love your girlfriend? It was for Alice. Everything I did seemed to be wrong.
This baby wasn’t mine. I could tell she was seeing someone else. Even about three or four months ago Alice kept getting these calls from a man.
The way I dealed with that I would of thought that Alice would not of even laid eyes on another man. I guess I was wrong then, wasn’t I?
