ack to the living room and stumbled on some heaps of clothes on the floor. He turned down the music and picked up the clothes and folded them neatly and then he impulsively started cleaning.

He tidied up the place, picked up the pieces of the broken ceramic vase from the floor, put away the bottles of alcohol and the glasses they were drunk on safely.

He went back to the bedroom occasionally to check up on her. When he got there, he would stare at her from the door a while before going back.

After cleaning up the house, he sat on the couch. In an attempt to wait for her to wake up, he fell asleep. It was already evening and almost sundown.

She eventually woke up with a serious hangover and looked around. Still confused and unaware of her surroundings, she staggered to the living room to find a stranger in her house, sleeping on her couch.

Startled, she screamed.

”Who are you? ”

”What are you doing here? ”

Her loud voice caused Arthur to wake up.

He tried to calm her down and explained everything to her. But as he attempted to approach, she screamed even louder.

He retreated to the door. Even he knew it was definitely weird being a stranger in somebodys house uninvited.

”Calm down. ” Athur said, moving his hands up and down with his palms facing the ground in gesticulations.

”You passed out. ” He added.

”What did you do to me? ” She asked, trembling. She had picked up the remote control and held it up towards Arthur to prepare for defence against any potential attack. Like seriously, a remote.

”Nothing. ” Arthur said, raising his hands up in the air innocently.

”You were on the floor when I came in, so I helped you get up on the bed. ”

”You were pretty wasted. ” He added.

A sharp pain surged through her head, so she held her hand on her head and tried to sit down, wincing in pain.

”Are you okay? ” Arthur said, moving forward hastily in an attempt to help her.

”Who are you, and what are you doing here? ”

”Im the customer whom you attended to yesterday at the restaurant… You spilled some wine on my girlfriend and then she slapped you. You remember? ” Arthur explained.

”What? You? ”

”You and your obnoxious girlfriend are the reason Im in this mess right now. ”

”So What do you want to do now? Throw me in jail for accidentally spilling wine on your girlfriend? Is that why you
e here? You came to finish it up? ” She said, almost tearing up.

She whimpered in pain. Tears were already forming at the base of her eyes at the thought of her current predicament, and in no time they came trickling down her cheeks..

”No no no no… ”

He rushed to her in compassion and spread his hands around her back to give her solace.

”Im not here to do any of that. ”

”It was not your fault at all. It was an accident, and I understand that. ”

After a few minutes of consoling her, she finally stopped sobbing and raised up her head to look at his face.

”Im so sorry about all that. ” he started, in a warm soothing voice.

”She was totally wrong to hit you, and I take full responsibility for that. ”

”I also heard about your job, and Im sorry about that too. ”

”And I promise you, Ill do everything in my power to make it up to you. ” Arthur said with more intensity in his voice.

”That job was the only thing I had, ” she said.

You could see the pain in her blood-red eyes.

She was scared because she didn know what to do. It was at a dead end for her. She had a lot of student loans to pay and she was an orphan with nobody to assist her since her dad died.

”Don worry Aria. Well find you a new job. ”

”How did you know my name? ” she asked, staring deep into his eyes, shocked.

He chuckled lightly and said, ”Don worry about that. Ill tell you everything, but for now, you need to take an aspirin and have a cold shower to help with your hangover. ”

”Alright. ”

e a nice guy. ” she said, forcing a smile on her lips.

She stood up and got an aspirin from the cabinet. She swallowed it and gulped down a bottle of water afterwards, before heading to the bathroom.
