The Weird Neighborhood - Chapter 7, Part 1

Stefanie confronts Alec with an important question, "Why did he call her Felicia?"
I woke up the next morning and found myself munching cereals when suddenly something clicked my mind. Call me stupid or careless, but all this time I haven't even realized that Alec didn't call me Stefanie but something else... oh! What was it? I strained my mind and finally realized that he called me Felicia... yes! But why?

After wearing some decent clothes, I went straight away to the Flynn's home and luckily Alec opened the door.

"Hi, is Mrs. Flynn here?" I asked even though I wanted to meet Alec and I already saw Rose leaving the apartment few hours ago.

"No, she just went out shopping," Alec replied.
"Ok, then when she comes back would you just tell her I was here," I said.
"Well, you can come in and have a chat with me, I don't bite," he said with a silly smirk on his face.
"Exactly what I wanted," I thought.

I showed a bit reluctance, but then agreed. He led me into his bedroom where we sat on a couch to play Xbox.

After a while, I came to the point.
"Ummm... Alec?" I began.
"Yeah," he said while his eyes were still glued on the TV.
"Yesterday at.. the park... you called me... Felicia."

Alec paused the game at an instant and dropped his console. Though he was trying hard to act I could clearly see the nervousness in his eyes.

"I-- I did?" He said acting to be surprised.
"Yes, you clearly did." I said while arching an eyebrow.
"Well, I must've. I am not that good with names you know--"
"Stop lying."
"But am not--"
"Alec am not a fool ok."

"I'm sorry, but it was just an accident nothing intentional... God why don't you believe me?"

"Because I don't have a reason to believe you!" I snapped at him.

Bull's eye! With that I got up from the couch and walked away when suddenly Alec grabbed my hand.

So I'm leaving with a cliffhanger, but I'll update soon.

RABIA - Well I used the name Felicia intentionally (important part of the story), but yes I used it in the description by mistake. And yes I have an Indian background. What about you?

Quick question

What do you think Alec will do next?

If each of these characters were to be played by some actors, who do you think they should be? The actors who'll get the most votes will be assigned the characters, so don't forget to comment this time!
