(Ãnd the strãnge maidën)

“So prom is like a custom where students dressed in fashionable dresses and engage in different activities. Like the dancing, dinner and date.
It’s just like a night party but it’s mostly for the final year student in high school.
So, I don’t know how to really explain a date to you – but it’s a person that goes together with another person that is, a girl as a prom date to a girl.
And there’s always a king and queen for prom or the best prom couple.” Xavier explained and sighed.
He stared intently at me, as if searching my eyes for answers.
“Wait, I hope I wasn’t talking to myself? Did you understand?” He asked and blinked his eyes and shook me lightly.
I let out a light giggle and swat his hands away.
“You weren’t talking to yourself okay? And I did only understand few words but the others, I’ll just pretend that I understand.” I said truthfully.
“So? Let me ask you officially, will you be prom date?” He asked with a smile and I didn’t know – but my heart suddenly skipped a bit.
I smiled shyly and bent my head.
“Yeah.” I smiled and stared at him.
“Yes!” He smiled and hugged me tight.
He pulled away and quickly place a kss on my l!ps.
I turned towards another direction and bit my lip shyly.
“Shy queen.” He teased and tickled my lightly. I laughed and hit him playfully on his chest.
…. And the rest of the lesson was fun and educating.
“So mom, have you thought about it?” I asked quizzically and stared intently at mom as if searching her eyes for answers.
She sighed and smiled at me.
“I’ve made up my mind already. I couldn’t sleep a wink last night as I was in deep thoughts…” Mom started while I sat properly – eagerly waiting for her response.
I really do hope it’s something that I’ll be happy about.
“Okay…” I nodded my head.
“Legally, we have rights as Chelsea and her mother to be in that mansion.
We are your father’s first family and we have every right to be in the same mansion as he his and his wife.
Your father had been hiding us away from his family and it isn’t right. They should know about us also. It’s as if we are not his family and I’m like his mistress.
And as I think hard about it, it hurts a lot.
So, I’ve made up my mind… We are going to your father’s house and introduce ourselves to his wife and child. He can’t keep hiding us forever. Let whatever want to happen, happen.
We are tired of being side lined.” Mom sighed softly.
“I agree with you mom. We need to enjoy such luxury too.” I concurred with a smile.
“Exactly!” Mom nodded.
“So mom, when are we going over?” I asked, already seeing myself there in the mansion and living like a princess.
“So, we’ll be solving arithmetics today.” Xavier said, unzipping his backpack.
“Sure. I’m sure gonna impress you.” I boasted with pride and smiled.
Xavier arched his brows at me and smirked.
“What! Do you think I’m bluffing?” I pout.
“No ma’am Delaney, you aren’t.” He laughed while I faux a frown.
“You look like a goblin when you frown.” He teased and did an ugly face – but he still looked cute.
I poked his chest and we both bursted into laughter.
As he tried to bring out his books, his backpack fell from the table and his books turned upside down on the floor.
“Let me help you.” I offered and bent down to pick up his books.
As I picked them up, a small box fell and what was inside fell out because probably the box wasn’t closed properly.
I picked up what fell and my eyes dilated in shock.
My mouth fell opened in shock as I stared at it.
I turned to look at Xavier and he had a confuse countenance.
“How the h.ell did you get this?” My voice came out in a yell as I dangled it in front of him.
