A wonderful night. The crowd sure is cheery and enjoying this chilly evening. This night is chatty. Everyone’s talking about how lovely and entertaining tonight’s man is! People are murmuring and laughing while enjoying the evening.
“Ah, there he is! Charlie! Charlie!... Come here!” Aunt Alya calls Charlie forward.
“Yes, Aunt Alya?” speaks Charlie beautifully and politely.
Aunt Alya introduces Charlie to Mr. Roggers, the commissioner.
“Nice to meet you, good sir,” Charlie greets the man nicely.
“Good to meet you too, son,” Mr. Roggers replies.
“How are liking the feast so far, sir?” Charlie asks.
“It’s good, joyful. Good expensive drinks too,” answers Mr. Roggers. “By the way, are you single? My daughter would like to-”
“Good to know that Roggers, but Charlie has other guests to attend to,” Aunt Alya interrupts. “Charlie, you can go now.”
“Hey, isn’t that the criminal I’ve been chasing after? Alya, can you give him to me,” pleads Mr. Roggers.
“You know, I can’t do that Roggers. Also, Charlie’s gay, so don’t even try,” says Mrs. Alya and walks away.
Mr. Roggers sighs and drinks his glass of wine.
That’s me, Charlie Rodriguez. The second child of Mr. Akio Rodriguez and Mr. Dean Rodriguez. Actually, second adopted child. They adopted a girl before me, Angelica. She’s three years older than me. Today’s my sweet 20th birthday. Cool right? Anyways, I’ll be right back.
“Hello, ladies,” Charlie greets humbly.
“Hello there, sweetheart!” the girls greet him back joyfully.
“How are y’all feeling about the night?” Charlie asks.
“Amazing!! Especially this wine,” one of the girls answers.
“Of course, it is! I mean it’s a wine chosen by our Sia,” Charlie brags.
“Haha! Sure, sure,” a second girl says. “But does she only have a great taste in wines or also in…you know.” She gets closer to Charlie’s ears and holds his hand, and asks.
“Hmm…love, you’ll have to ask her that yourself,” Charlie replies softly into her ear.
“Haaa…your sister has already stolen her heart! She doesn’t even look at any other women. Look at her now!” says a third girl.
The group of girls and Charlie look at the Sia, who’s trying to find Angelica from a distance.
“Angie ain’t coming to her, well not until she’s done with Mia. You can have Sia till then. She might come to you for a night,” says Charlie, sighing.
“Ok…but Sia isn’t no man’s object,” the girl says as she makes her way towards Sia. Charlie and the other girls watch as she amorously places her hand onto Sia’s shoulder. They talk for a while until they head out of the room together.
