A hand each was forcefully placed on both alice and sabreens mouths to shut them up.
“What the hell?”
“Hmfhmfmmhhfm” alice tried to say something but her mouth was held stiff.
Once the hand was slowly released from her mouth she said in a panicked tone, breathing heavily.
“Ofcourse its me tony. Are you both drunk or something? Why the hell are you screaming?Where in the world are the 2 of you coming from this time of the morning anyway?” He was utterly confused.
“But.. Bb…but!” Alice fumbled.
“But you’re supposed to be dead!” Sabreen spoke for alice.
Tony burst out laughing.. “Dead?” And he laughed even more…
“Yeah, so this must be my ghost!” He said pointing to himself and roared with laughter again.
Alice and sabreen looked at eachother and then back at tony who was trying to recover from his fit of laughter.
Once he settled and took a few breaths, he shook his head… “Why are women so dramatic? Anyway, its late. I’m going to sleep. We’ll talk again in the morning.. Like late morning.. Or rather early afternoon. Whatever… Later!” And he shut his room door and left his 2 sisters in total bemusement.
Alice sat down on the couch in the living room…. “What just happened?”
Sabreen giggled.. “Tonys alive.”
“So then? What about the dead body they found?” Alice asked as if sabreen had all the answers.
Alice got up and barged into tonys room. She rushed to her brother and hugged him as tight as she could. “I’m so sorry tony… I’m really sorry for not being a good enough sister. Please forgive me and let’s just live normally? Please”
“Whoa…. What happened to you? Have you been drinking or something ali? Or are you just overly exhausted?” He asked as he pushed alice off him.
Alice had tears streaming down her face. “We thought you were dead…”
“Why would you think that? You should be used to me being out till late.. I was at a party and lost track of time.” Tony explained.
Alice and sabreen explained the nights events to tony who found it so amusing. He laughed even more..
“I lost my drivers license last weekend when I went fishing with some of the guys. ”
They all chuckled at the craziness of the situation.
“And the cops found it and thought that it belonged to the poor dead guy.” Alice giggled.
“But couldn’t they see the faces were different?” Tony asked.
“Well your drivers license wasn’t all that clear. It was pretty dirty and the face part was spoiled already.” Sabreen explained.
“We’ll let them know its not you tomorrow.” Alice said, stifling a yawn. “We better get some sleep. Its been a crazy night and I’m over exhausted. Come on breeni! Night tony!”
All 3 of them were soon fast asleep and the girls only woke up around noon that day.
Alice was up first and decided to make breakfast for them all. She whipped up a pancake batter and chopped up some fruit to caramelise. She was just about done grilling the fruit when sabreen walked in rubbing her eyes to wake up.
“Smells yummy in here.” She complimented.
Alice smiled. ” Thought it would be a nice idea for the 3 of us to have breakfast together for a change. You only come over like once in a month and tonys usually too busy or never around. Todays the perfect opportunity.”
“Can I help with something?” Sabreen asked.
“Yeah! Why don’t you wake your lazy brother up while I get our mugs ready with some cappuccino?” Alice suggested.
Sabreen nodded as she headed to tonys room. She knocked once but there was no answer so she opened the door and let herself in. But to her surprise, tony wasn’t in bed. He’s bed wasn’t even made and cupboards were wide open and clothes were lying everywhere. His room was in a real mess.
“Alice!” Sabreen shouted as she returned to the kitchen.
“Hmm” alice replied not meeting sabreens concerned gaze.
