Kelvin was coming back from work, he saw Anna standing beside a car, he slow down and pulled over, he turned off the engine and get down from the car, he walked over to the place where she was standing, she looked worried.
“What’s wrong with your car?”
“I was driving and suddenly my car began to make one crazy noise, then it broke down” she said, worriedly.
“Oh! It’s really bad. Why don’t you just hop in, hmm I will drop you off and I will call my mechanic to fix your car” he said.
“Alright. Thank you” she said, for the first time, he looked at her surprisedly.
“What did you say?” He asked, like didn’t hear what she said, he wants her to repeat the same thing.
“I said thank you” she said with a little smile.
“You’re welcome” he replied with a smile, she headed to the car, he followed her to the car, he opened the door for her, the way a gentleman would do for his wife.
“Thanks…..” She muttered and sat in the car, he shut the door and moved to the driver seat, he start the engine and he drove off, while driving he called his mechanic, he told him where the car was parked and the color of the car.

“Have you eaten something” he asked and looked at her.
“I haven’t… but I will do that when I get home …” She mumbled, looking at him.
“Hmm! I was thinking maybe we should just pulled over and grabbed something from the restaurant” he said, smiling.
“Hope you wouldn’t mind” he said, with a smile, “no problem” she muttered, he drove to the restaurant and parked his car.
“Please wait…” He said and get down from the car, he opened the door for her, she came out and thanked him, he shut the door, they walked together, the people around were whispering and smiling, she looked at herself to be sure that nothing is wrong with her dressing.
“You’re good…..” Kelvin mumbled with a smile.

“I will call you” he said, smiling, some minutes later he arrived at her house, she got down from the car, because he was on call, she didn’t want to interrupt his conversation, she waited for him outside, when he was done looked at the seat, he noticed that she wasn’t there, he quickly got down from the car and met her standing.
“Thank you for your help and support” she muttered and folded her lips, he smiled and slide his right hand in his pocket.
“You’re welcome. Take care” he said and turned, she felt hurt, she thought he would hugged her, she wanted to do it but she doesn’t know how to do it, she placed her look on the floor, she turned to leave, when he came back and hugged her from behind, she smiled.
“Does it mean, he reads my mind” she thought.
“I should have done this before now, but I was scared that you might be angry with me” he said.
“No. I wanted to do the same but I was scared because I was rude to you earlier” she said.
He unlock from the hugged, he stared at her pretty face, he touched her face slightly, her cheeks were soft, he wants to have the taste of her lips.
Daisy held the sound of the car, she waited for her sister to come in, but hasn’t seen her, Daisy opened the door she was surprised on what her eyes were seeing.
Anna close her eyes, Kelvin was about to kiss her when Daisy coughed and interrupted them, she pushed him slightly, she was surprised to see her sister.

“Hi, why didn’t you come in, though Henry just felt some hours ago”
“How are you doing?”
“I’m good and you”
“I’m fine. What about my mother in law and my father in law” she said with a smile, Anna tried her best not to look at her sister.
“They’re all fine” he replied with a smile.
“I guess you guys were busy with something important” she said, looking at her sister.
“No. It’s okay….. ..” he stuttered.
“No prob. Take care” Daisy mumbled and walked back to the house, Anna and Kelvin talked a little before he left, Anna walked to the house, she met Daisy sitting on the couch watching the news on the television.

“I know. You’ve told me that before, I just prepared something for you to eat. Ava is in her room, in case you want to go see her” Daisy mumbled.
“Are you mad at me?”
“I’m not. I just hope that what I saw today is true. You just have to be careful” Daisy said with a smile.
“Thank you…. …” She said and hugged her, ” Kelvin told me that your car broke down on your way home” she said, Anna looked at her and wondered when he made the call.
