Ahmed bounced the ball against the ground and launched forward, seeing Jason stood in front of him with his legs wide apart trying to grab the ball from his hand. Ahmed stopped and turned his upper body to the left and threw the ball at Hafiz.
Hafiz dribbled the ball, alternating between his right and left hand, he propelled himself passing Ahmed and making a jump towards the ring, he extended his arm and slammed the ball as hard as he could, making it move through the hoop and drop to the ground.
Ahmed and Hafiz jumped for a high ten celebrating the minute victory.
Tia clapped her hands above her head as she cheered for them. “What do you mean, you’re not surprised? Don’t tell me you were the type of girlfriend who is jealous of every woman around her boyfriend.” She asked picking up on their conversation.
“You have him out of the house and playing basketball on a Saturday, when we were dating, he never had time for anything other than golf with the client or activities at the country club.I remember that I worked at the company for two years before he started noticing me, and that was because his sister in law invited me to a dinner so I could catch his attention. Can you imagine how I felt? And he’s like that to everyone, cold, nonchalant, and indifferent. Only thinking about work, work and work.”
“Oh really? He didn’t come across me as someone like that. From the first day that I arrived at the company, he had always been a kind, supportive and cordial boss. Especially about work, I mean he always followed up on my progress and he was always available to answer any questions.”
“Exactly! Do you know that he has Dodi reporting to him, what time you arrive and leave the office? ” Daniyati continued.
“Oh, come on! He asks that about everybody from my department.”
“Only from your department and it started after you joined the company….”
“Look, Daniyati. You’re already married to Jason, and Ahmed is my boyfriend now. Don’t you think it’s time to let go of your past jealousy? I know that when I started at the company you were his girlfriend, but that’s changed now. It was you who married someone else, remember? Also, I want you to know that there was nothing between us before we went to your wedding in Bali. In fact, for your information, he was in Bali because of you, he wanted to stop you from marrying Jason.”
“But he didn’t, even though he had the chance to, even though I…..I asked him to stop me from getting married. Because in two days he was already fixated in someone else. Think about it, is that even possible? Nobody falls in love in two days.”
“That’s enough!” Tia was getting angry and didn’t want to hear anymore. “Jason is my best friend, he has been since elementary school. I hope you’ll be a good and faithful wife for him. Forget about my boyfriend, and focus on your own husband.”
“But why are you such a hot head?” Daniyati was puzzled.
