The Legend of Divine Mystics - Chapter 2.4
“Darling, you do know that your parents loved you very much, more than you can imagine. They wouldn’t want you to waste your life trying to find out about their so-called disappearance and have your love life suffer as a result. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that your love life is practically non-existent, as of right now.”
I was used to her pushy ways, and in some way, I like how she fretted about me every now and then.
“I know that they loved me very much. I also know they wouldn’t want me to be wasted away like this. And I know that looking for them won’t bring either of them back.”
I took a deep breath and tried to stem the tide of tears.
I didn’t want to give Brownie any cause of worries. I prefer to be a brave woman who can handle her problems perfectly without needing much help.
After calming myself, I returned to the conversation, “Anyway, the point is, even if they wanted me to move on, I just can’t do it without getting the answers I wanted.”
It looked like Brownie wanted to say something to me but she had decided to change the topic. Well, she knew how stubborn I could get if I wanted to be.
“So what are your plans for your dear friend Michael’s, reception party? You are going to attend, aren’t you???” There was a trace of suspicion in her tone.
“Don’t worry. I’ll leave the pub as soon as I’m done performing a few songs, then I’ll concentrate on my best friend’s reception party. I’m not going to work my butt off on such an important day of her life and end up missing it!”
I spoke rather innocently. Well, to be truthful, I was thinking of taking my time at the pub before making my way to the reception whenever I felt like it. But looks like granny won’t let me do as I pleased, so I might as well change my plans.
“That’s good. Don’t forget to take a bouquet for her, OK?! And don’t go to work tonight!”
“Y-yes!!! I will definitely take a big bouquet!”
But granny didn’t look satisfied with it and stared daggers towards me.
“OK-OK! I won’t work tonight.”
“Fine, I’ll take your word. Since it’s Michael’s reception, I hope that you wouldn’t go back on your word and work all night.”
After finishing my work, I looked outside only to see the sun settling down. The reception would start soon, so I might as well leave now. I said goodbye to Brownie and left for my friend’s reception–and just as she had said–I acquired a bouquet of lilies and roses along the way.
They were her favorites, and also mine.
