"You have a girlfriend, don't you?" said my mother one day while we're in the kitchen.
My mind shifted into 5th gear immediately. "Wh-what? I don't have any." My mom continued, "You're sure? From the looks of it, you're quite popular at school.* 'Abang NSDS3', or something like that. And the messages in the phone..."
* I am _not_ popular at school.
"Don't have any."
"How about Dj?** Isn't she your girlfriend?" Mom displayed one of her I-know-it grins. Uh-oh, I have to end this conversation. "No, she IS NOT my girlfriend!"
** Dj is my second crush. Also part of my nickname. I never knew how she figured that I had a crush on Dj.
"Hmm...L have a girlfriend, doesn't he***?" she said with another grin.
*** How the hell did she know that? Even L's parent doesn't know that! It's a very confidential thing!
"Eh? He have?****"
**** I feigned ignorance.
"He told me.*****" At this point, I said a pun that made her laugh so hard that she forgot about the girlfriend talk.
***** Unlikely, since L has never met my mom.
So if you ever meet my mom, beware. Cause she have the sixth sense.
