“Why did you call?” I asked Drake on the line. It was past 10 in the evening. I was about to sleep when my phone rang.
“Can we talk?”
“Drake, do you know what time it is?”
“Yes, uhm, don’t worry. This will be short.” I nodded my head like he’s in front of me.
“Okay, fire away.” I heard him laughed a little before clearing his throat.
“Remember what I told you earlier?”
I cleared my throat before answering him, “Yeah,” in a rhythmic tone.
I could imagine him smiling when I answered him but I chose to ignore it.
Damn, this is awkward.
“I wanted you to know that I’m serious about it.” He said, clearly uncomfortable with what he said.
I laughed a little, picturing him scratching the back of his neck.
“Okay?” I heard him sigh before speaking.
“Can I court you?” it took me awhile to understand what he meant.
Then I shook my head. “No, Drake.”
He sighed again and after a moment of silence he spoke again.
