My Indoor Holiday
Written by Rejoice
Waking up with a slight headache, I rubbed the
side where it’s hitting and the only reason I
could say brought the headache is that I stayed
a little awake in the midnight.
Recalling the guitar guy, I smiled, got up and
dashed to the window, drew the curtains but he
wasn’t there anymore but the window is open
but I couldn’t see the inside. It’s dark. Why?
I drew close the curtain and walked to the
beside lamp, turned the light off and then
headed into the bathroom. I had a pee in the
WC before going over to the vanity unit,
washed my face in the sink and brushed my
checking myself in the small cirle mirror, I saw
that my eyes were baggy and dull. I shouldn’t
be up by this time if I did wake up at midnight.
This is just ‘five minutes after seven’ and I
don’t even feel dizzy for more sleep and my
waking up was quite astonishing.
I just opened my eyes like I wasn’t even
sleeping which is so unusual especially when I
was awake in the midnight. What happened? it
seemed as if someone woke me up but that
can’t be possible.
I got out of the bathroom, slide my feet into my
pink fur slippers, grabbed my phone and
walked out of the room.
Downstairs, aunt Kiki was already dressed up
She smiled at seeing me walk down the stairs.
“Isa dear, I was about coming to your room to
let you know that im off to school. You should
eat the pancake in the microwave. It’s really
delicious.” she said.
“Wait, im I really going to stay alone in this
house?” I asked.
“Ofcourse it’s okay. Im gonna tell Rose to
come over and stay with you so you wouldn’t
feel lonely. There’s nothing to be scared of
OK?” she hurriedly said,“..and Im gonna be
back before it’s ‘3pm’ Take care of yourself
darling.” she said, then came over and gave
me a peck.
I watched her leave and close the door,
followed by the zooming off of her car.
Wait! dad didn’t call her? dad didn’t call her
after telling me he will!
I dialled dad’s line immediately and he picked
up after so many rings.
“Hello dad!” I yelled into the phone.
“Isa, are you alright?”
“Im not! why didn’t you call aunt Kiki after
telling me you gonna call her!!” I yelled.
“Isa, we gonna talk about this later. Right now,
im in a meeting.” He said and ended the call.
I stamped my feet!!
Damn you dad!
I just wanna say that I hate you but I can’t!
Anyways, im so hungry.
I headed to the kitchen to get the pancake she
Finding the microwave, I opened it and there
on a ceramic dish was a sweet smelling
I grabbed it, placed it on a tray, picked a juice
and water from the fridge and carried them in
the tray to the dinning where I placed them
carefully on the table, sat down and ate it all till
the plate was empty.
After resting for awhile, then it came knocking
on my head.
Who’s gonna wash this things and even the
ones aunt Kiki left in the sink?
It can’t be me tho.
I’ll just take them to the kitchen.
She wash them when she gets back.
I carried the tray back to the kitchen, dropped
them in the sink, then walked out to the sitting-
room, sat down on the longest couch, grabbed
the remote from the table and switched on the
TV to watch movies.
Well after searching through the channels, I
settled for Zeeworld.
I think that’s much better.
But after an hour, I got tired and left to my room
to have my bathe.
After bathing, I settled for a white singlet with a
white lacy jacket over it and a yellow skirt.
I applied mascara on my eyelashes and
decided to take few selfies and I did. They look
sweet but the background is not so cool!
Ugh! I can’t wait to get outta this house!
My guitar crush.
Why’s he giving me the feelings of staying
back. Of not wanting to go anymore.
I walked to the window, drew the curtains to
check if he’s there but he still wasn’t.
I wish to watch him sing again..
I wanna see how handsome he is in the day
But after few minutes and he didn’t show up on
the window, I drew close the window.
Maybe he only sings at nights.
I sat on the bed, grabbed my phone and
decided to go through my WhatsApp chats and
I went through Katy’s instagram uploads and
she did take a lot of pictures with Ariana, Davis
and two other guys which I guess would be
Raven and Alex.. ohh she kissed this one on
this picture.. Well Raven is more handsome.
I reacted on the pictures and dropped my
comments. Then checked Ariana’s too.
Chatting made me feel less bored.
But then my heart leaped with excitement when
I heard the sound of the guitar.
I dropped my phone and rushed to the window,
drew the curtains and there was him, sitting on
the window, with his guitar but he still wore the
I smiled as I watched him began a song.
The song immediately got me.
Woah!! that sweet song! he sang it last night.
Gosh gosh I wanna record it. Oh my God! My
I rushed back to my bed and grabbed my
phone. I wanna make a video record of him
and listen to his songs when I eventually leave
But before I got back to the window, the song
stopped and when I opened the curtain, he
was no more there.
I sighed, walked back to my bed and fell on it,
wishing for sleep to come and in no time, it did.
I slept off, only for me to wake up three hours
later feeling another round of hunger.
I sighed and got out of the bed, took my phone
and headed out to the kitchen to get something
I opened the fridge and was suprised to see
three toasted breads and mayonnaise. But I
didn’t see them when I opened the fridge in the
Maybe my eyes didn’t go there.
I waved that off and grabbed the plate of
toasted bread and mayonnaise, then settled on
the kitchen counter to eat, not bothering to take
them to the dinning table.
Soon I was done eating.I carried the plates to
the kitchen and heaped them together with the
other unwashed plates.
Just as I came out from the kitchen, the
doorbell rang, I glanced at the wall clock and it
Must be aunt Kiki.
And wait! I thought she said the girl, Rose is
gonna come. Whatever!
I walked to the door and opened it.
“Isa dear, Rose told me she came knocking but
you didn’t answer.” she said immediately.
I raised my brows, “I heard none of the
“Really?” she said as she walked in and closed
back the door.
I rolled my eyes, “Yeah. I had a long nap.”
“Oh she said she did ring the doorbell for a
really long time.” she said.
I arched my brow.
If she did rang the doorbell for a long time then
that should have woken me up from sleep. I
ain’t such a deep sleeper.
“ I really don’t know what happened. I guess I
was too deep in my sleep.” I said, quite
First, I woke up quite early in the morning when
im not supposed to.
Then the headache stopped just after I
splashed water on my face and brushed.
Then I slept so deeply that I wasn’t awoken by
the doorbell rings.
“It’s okay. I hope you ate the toasted bread
and mayonnaise in the fridge?”
“Yes I did.” I said.
“And you washed the plates after right?” she
asked with her eyes on mine.
I rolled my eyes, “Ofcourse not. I can’t do
that.” I said.
She smiled, “You’ll have to do that Isa. Now go
to the kitchen and wash the dishes.” she said.
“Im not!” I snapped and headed upstairs.
“Isa!” she called.
“Isabel come back here!”
Ignored her and went into my room and locked
I layed down on my bed and decided to read a
wattpad novel but just as I was about logging
in, the strings sound of his guitar came on and
his voice sang out.
I smiled. He’s back.
I walked to the window to see him.
Waoh he’s so cute.. but why is he still in the
same clothe? is he that poor to wear just one
clothe for a whole day?
Soon he was done with the short song, and
started ‘Bittersweet Me’
I felt so excited.
That was the song I so badly wanted to record.
I clicked on my phone screen only to find it
I didn’t switch it off! how the hell did it switch
I tried switching it on but it wasn’t responding.
While I kept trying, he stopped singing and I
looked up to see he isn’t there anymore.
I breathed out. Now what the hell is wrong with
this damn phone!
I walked out from the window and just as I sat
on the bed, my phone switched on.
Waohh.. Seriously, this is crazy!
Night came and aunt Kiki’s kids left. I was in
my room. I didn’t go to see them but I know
when their parents came to take them.
And an hour later after, I felt hungry and
walked out to eat.
I met aunt Kiki sitting at the couch in the sitting-
room, going through some books I guess would
be her kids work books.
She looked up at me, “Isa you didn’t come to
see my kids.” she said.
“I was busy.” I said.
“It’s okay. Your dinner is there on the dinning.
Don’t forget to wash the dishes after.” he said
and I breathed out.
After eating, I carried the plates to the kitchen
and dropped them with the other unwashed
There were quite much.
This is gonna be the first time for me to wash
My face twisted in both horror and anger as I
picked up the first plate and took the foam to
The plates felt heavy and slippery in my
I picked up the next plate but it was so heavy
and slippery that it fell outta my hand and
landed on the tiled floor but seriously! it didn’t
Astonishingly it didn’t.
How the hell did this happen?
I bent and picked up the plate, inhaled and
went on with the washing.
