After their morning lecture, Lizzy decide to look for Adrian, maybe he was avoiding them because of that day. But they promised to keep quiet about his personality.
There he was closed to the park with a girl and a boy, she wondered if she was the girl he called best friend the other day.
"Good morning Adrian, she said as they drew closer.
Morning Ava and Lizzy Adrian responded."
He was pleased to see them though he couldn't see Camille any where near.
"Where is your friend? Camille he asked.
"Oh, she is sick Ava answered."
"I didn't know of that , what's wrong with her?
"Adrian, we don't know exactly. She refuse talking about it to us, but we know she down and she needs someone to talk to, Ava said."
"Wow, that's deep. Cami check on her tomorrow? Am kind of busy today and i can't leave my friends like this we all got assignment to do together. Adrian explained."
"Okay, no probs. We will be happy if you show up tomorrow, Lizzy spoke."
"I will, promised.
"Can I get you contact Adrian asked."
"Yes sure, Lizzy call out her number."
"Tell her to get well soon, classes are going on without her, Adrian added."
"Okay, we will ."
"Thanks a lot Adrian. Bye.
Bye. "He was wondering what was wrong with Camille! She seems fine the other day but the other day was last month! What the fuck is wrong with his brain? He sat closed to cherry blossom."
"Is she your friend now? Cherry kept her eyes on her notes, she was jealous already she didn't want Adrian to be friends with any girl in the schools."
"Hey cherry, she is my friend I did some introduction the other day remember?? Adrian said with a smile. " You should spend some time with them, you will love them promise".
"Wait do you love her? Cherry asked."
"Cherry I said them, not her and I didn't say I love them either, Adrian added".
"Fine , he said "them" why are you worried about it? Jerry asked. If he chooses to be friends with them, it's cool if you want to join them still cool and you don't want.....
"Still cool cherry cut him off. She was doubting if Jerry was her twin or Adrian's twin, he always took Adrian's side!
"Let's go, am tried already who wants some burger?? He asked looking at cherry, he noticed she was Moody and food was the best way to cheer her up."
"Yeah, you got me on this one! She stood up from her seat to where Jerry was. "Let's go boring brother".
"Get off, foodie Jerry resorted."
Adrian let out a loud laughter.
When the girls opened the door, they saw Camille on the bed, it looked like she didn't get up from her bed all the day long.
"Wait, don't tell you didn't get up from that bed while we were gone? Lizzy asked as she drew The curtains".
"I did, I took my bath and ate, Camille smiled".
"Anyways, we saw Adrian today and he sent his regards, Ava told her.
Yeah, Adrian son of Brooks Lizzy answered.
Camille wished she went with the girls earlier, atleast she would have met the guy who was making her sick. She was lovesick and was ashamed to tell the girls. What if Adrian doesn't feel the same got her!
"Lord Jesus, why me ? Camille let her thoughts out".
'What happened? Lizzy asked."
"Oh, I didn't mean to say that! Camille".
"Didn't want her friends to be aware of the situation she was in!
"Bae, he said he will come visit you tomorrow."
"So get ready to receive the billionaire."
"Girls, do you like Adrian because he is rich or... Camille asked the girls."
"Noooo, they all looked at her. He is a handsome guy, any girl will like him and him being rich only made the "like" became stronger, they all laugh.
Camille knew her friends were trying to make her laugh and its did work for them. She was happy that she was going to see Adrian tomorrow, he was going to visit her here at her place. She wished her friends won't be around at that time, that will enable her spend some time with him.
"Tricia will so jealous of you tomorrow " Ava told her.
"I bet you, that witch won't hold it back, if she knows who Adrian! Lizzy rolled her eyes."
Camille laughed. "You girls won't kill me, I don't know why Tricia behaves that way towards me!
Tricia stays down stairs, Camille upstairs. They had their quarrel many times, her friends keep wondering what she did to Tricia that stir up this hatred and jealous. Tricia always insults and disgraced Camille with any opportunity she got. Ava told her that it was because she(Camille) was the most beautiful girl on Oxford that why.
Last year during the contest for the most beautiful which Camille won, Tricia accused the panel of being partial with judgement, that it was she Tricia, who would have been crowned the winner. Maybe that's where the hatred grew.
"Enough of Tricia, when is Adrian coming tomorrow Camille asked."
"Wow, look who got well after hearing the name Adrian Lizzy teased."
" C'mon girls she said. Is not what you think, am just feeling better now".
"Camille, I want to ask you a question please be honest about it". Lizzy wanted to know what was going through her mind, whether her suspicion was right or not!
"Okay, she said."
"Are we truly your friends?? Lizzy asked."
"Are you supposed to ask that? I love you guys so much she said."
"Okay, are you in love with Adrian ?
"Come on, Cami I Know for a fact that you do You need to tell us now, let's figure this out together before is too late please, Ava pleaded."
"Please don't lie, Lizzy added."
"Oooohh girls, I love him!
"Not surprised Ava laugh out."
"Am shyyyyy, please stop it girls" Camille screamed. She wished for the grounds to open and swallow her but it's wasn't possible. When it comes to teasing Ava was a Queen, she wished her life was perfect like Ava who had a royal family, big brother and a boyfriend who loves her so much.
"Ava, how is Eric?
"He is fine, he is working in Australia currently."
Eric is not royalty but Ava loves him so much, She knew Ava's parents will not accept him just the way he was , a nice hardworking and kindhearted guy who was in his late twenties. People always asked why her friend fell love in with a guy who was eight years older than her, but Ava didn't care because she was believed in the saying: Age is just a number!
