Eve stepped into the small bathroom to wash her hands,she had been busy at the braai the entire evening and all was ready to eat.
music played loudly in the lounge,as everyone drank and talked at the top of their voices,wanting to be heard yet not listening to one another, it was a good evening.
Afew minutes later,nto opened the door,
'oh...am sorry,thought no one was in here'.
'it's ok,i'll just be afew seconds'.
But nto got in anyway.
They exchanged a meaningful look and eve put her finger to her lips,indicating for her not to make a sound.
They kissed,stolen and sweet and oh so dangerous seeing as dana was a few feet away.
Eve slipped out alittle while later, guilt written all over her face and was glad that they were all too engrossed in the talking to notice her.
She reached for her glass of wine and joined dana on the floor.
'having a good time?' dana asked innocently.
'mmmh-uh',eve granted and swallowed hard.
'i still don't know to what i owe this party in my honour though'
'yes, we all are alittle curious dana, what's the occasion?' nto put in, she stop by the threshold
'can't i just spoil my baby without my motives being questioned?' Dana said,playfully lacing her fingers through eve's.
eve looked unconvinced so dana continued.
'i just wanted to thank you for being the wonderful person that you are, so sweet,forgiving,understanding...'
'oooooh...thanks babe,too bad i had to do all the cooking ', she teased softly and dana reached over and kissed her,
'stop whining my love,you know you like it,'
'true..too true' eve reached over and hugged her tight,
'i love you for it, and i am the lucky one..',
'i love you,' dana smiled sweetly at her.
Nto stood at the counter now and watched the whole scene,feeling a lump on the throat.
'ok people,get a room already!', she tried to sound unaffected,making everyone laugh and stepping over bleh and hina to sit next to her date, who made room quickly by the sofa.
'you took forever', she said holding her hand.
'i did? I wasn't aware, i hope you don't feel neglected'.
'not anymore, now that you are here'.
