“Hey Amanda”,Jamie’s excited voice jilted Amanda out of her sorrowful reverie.”You know what…I’ve found the perfect solution to the predicament you’ve landed yourself in ‘.Amanda straightened up and unconsciously held on tightly to the phone and held her breath.
“There’s this guy”….she went on “I bumped into the gym class today…and knowing me ..how could I let up on a chance to chit chat… especially a hunk like this one.. and so we got chatting. Amanda he turned out to be a model and a t.v. artiste!! Well ..a…off….late he’s himself said that he’s not got a great lot to do,but he’s hopeful that he will one day get a good break and will establish himself as an actor.”
Amanda sighed and tried not to do an eye-roll, don’t we all she thought to herself..” But what the heck..Amanda..”Jamie continued..I offered him the job of his dreams!I’ve asked him to act out the role of a fake fiance to you for the weekend.O.K. , she went on not pausing,you can say that he was a bit taken aback… but because of my ardent requests..he presently agreed.”
“You’r joking right,Jamie?” was all Amanda could say.
“I need to warn you here Amanda she carried on not listening-he comes at a high price.I closed in the deal,my dear as you really don’t have a choice.Besides, “Jamie paused, her voice catching on a dreamy note” hes’s too handsome to let go”.”Oh” was the only thing Amanda could force out of her mouth.Feeling both joy and dismay Amanda at once felt torn to break the entire plot to her family but on the other hand,she desperatelly wanted her sister’s wedding to pass away peacefully. So she quietly agreed to meet Mr. actor tomorrow at Mc. Loy’s Cafe a few blocks away from her flat.
Setting aside her school books that were waiting to be checked, she robotic-ally went through the motions of turning in for the night.She promised herself not to think at all and tightly shut her eyes and forced herself to think of her history class tomorrow. It was a long time before she fell asleep.
An actor and an unemployed one at that! hmm she was due to meet him at the cafe in an hour’s time.The day had gone on horribly. She had got up late and as she was scrambling to her school, she had run into Mr. Fisher,the maths head of department.Mr. Fisher’s prying eyes and sly looks had always bothered her and she normally kept away but today oh bother! she got waylaid and had to walk up to the school with him and suffer him quietly.Her history class too did not go well and sounded boring even to her own ears!
As she was touching up her face, when it was finally time for her to go she made up her mind to go to this meeting with a very open mind, meet this person and somehow get over with this bizarre scheme by the weekend. Feeling positively better she made her way down the block to the cafe.
She arrived at the cafe and started to look out for a person dressed in an all black ensemble. Jamie had told her that her ‘prince’ or rather fiance in waiting was to be wearing such a costume as he was coming from the shooting of a funeral scene and he was one of the many extra actors.Flying her gaze all over the crowed room, she could not find any such person, so she steered herself on to a table near the entrance , to the cafe where she had a clear view of those entering.
She had waited for a good part of an hour and had finished drinking two cups of coffee and was just contemplating on giving up her wait and head home.. when a cab skidded to a halt just in front of the cafe.From a cab emerged a rather tall person whose looks could very easily advertise any commodity very finely in any magazine.He offered the taxi driver a smile of thanks as he paid him off and Amanda for a minute found herself catching her breath.
As he turned to enter Amanda got a good look at him. He was dressed in all black .. making his shoulders look broad.Maybe he was wearing a hired outfit that was a size or two small for him, she bemused!He had blond hair that was a bit too long for her liking and styled all the way.He sure did look like the man!
His gait showed that he was very confident of himself. Good God Amanda thought to herself, her friend was not exaggerating at all ..this guy looked like a Greek god!
Amanda was surely in trouble!!
From the way he stood and surveyed the crowd at the entrance,she caught sight of several heads turning to look at him.Finally his glance fell on her and he started to move towards her.Amanda’s pulse started to quicken. As she attempted to stand as the stranger neared closer, she almost stumbled and caught herself and the falling chair in the nick of time.She looked up to find him grinning at her, showing off his perfect pearly white teeth almost magically aligned neatly together.
‘Hi!” he said while extending his hand “I’m assuming you are Amanda Brown since you’r the only one unaccompanied here.I’m Brian.”Nice Amanda thought to herself Mr. stud has brains too!This was turning out to be too much.
