30 minutes later after Melady went inside, Melady is still shocked by the fact that her neighbor is that Queen. From all the people in the world called Queen, it had to be the one Melady didn’t want to see. “Are you kidding me… Why do I have to be in this situation? How can I avoid her….. I need to calm down, I’m being extra.” Melady made a long sigh, trying to put herself together, and started to slowly unpack.
Hours pass, while still moving stuff around. Melady hears a knock on the door. Melady hopes it's not the person she thinks it is… She walks to the window next to the door. Yep… it’s her. Melady ignored it, and went back to finish the house. Queen sill outside Melady's door said, “I know you are there! Your car is still here. It’s okay if you are shy… I brought freshed cookies!” Melady was confused by the fact that she was still there. She is still outside my door? It’s been 5 minutes since the last time she knocked. Sigh, I guess I have no choice. “I’m coming,” Melady said with a grumpy voice. Melady walks to the door again, this time she opens it. Opening it wide open, Melady with a shocked face, is surprised that Queen was there with a bright smile and with a plate full of cookies.
Melady was still surprised, she felt anger next. “What do you want? Are you going to poison me now!?” Melady said with an angry tone. Queen confused said, “Umm… Sorry but… I just wanted to say hi. I guess you woke up on the wrong side of the bed.” Queen smiled and later said, “Maybe these cookies would help, I mean no harm.” Melady thought, what is wrong with her, how can she just walk up to me like killing parents is normal!... Does she even remember me? It’s been 8 years. “ Just cookies…” Melady said with a cauntions look. “Of course! Homemade cookies for my neighbor.” Queen said. “ There are like… many other neighbors like you… Why me?” Queen was surprised with the question, that she also asked herself, Why did I want to be here so badly? Why did I bake cookies for her? “You are right. I don’t know what I was thinking, I apologize.” Queen bowed and handed the cookies to Melady, she turned and walked away.
Melady without thinking, “Wait!” What am I doing… Why do I feel bad? I have nothing to do. BUT HER PARENTS KILLED MY PARENTS!!.... She was a kid, she wouldn't know that. Sigh. Melady feeling guilty for behaving like she was, she apologized. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have to be mean to you.... Thank you for the cookies… W-would you like.. To eat the cookies with me?” Queen looking at Melady saind does words made her feel butterflies in her stomach.
