The Constant Sidelines | 1.03 A Noble Deception

The Constant Sidelines

Lisa watched as Becky lifted the pillows from their sofa and shoved her hand down the crease at the back.

“What are you doing?” she asked.

Becky looked back at her perplexed, “oh you know, just warming my hands up. What do you think I’m doing? I’m clearly looked for something.”

Lisa huffed, “what are you looking for?”

“My phone, you’ve not seen it by any chance, have you?” Becky replied, “I’m kinda waiting on a call from someone.”

Lisa patted down her arms and shoved her hands in her pockets and pulled them out showing her empty hands, “nope,” she said sarcastically, “not here.”

Becky rolled her eyes and walked away from Lisa, she was in no mood to deal with her right now. As Lisa watched Becky disappear up the stairs, she strained until she heard the bedroom door click shut before leaning over the side of the sofa to grab her handbag, she pulled out two phones.

Pushing the button on the side of one of them the phone screen lit up showing several notifications, missed calls and messages. Lisa sighed, she’d been tagged in so many photos, with people congratulating her on throwing the biggest party of the year but it wasn’t enough for her. Turning her attention to the other phone she couldn’t help but feel a pang of jealousy as she saw that the only messages on that phone were from Lee.

Closing her eyes for a second, Lisa contemplated returning the phone, Becky would never know she had hidden it but then where would the fun be in that? Typing in the passcode, Lisa opened the messages and quickly typed a message: “Hey, let’s meet up tomorrow night? Becky x”

Just as the message sent, Lisa heard the door upstairs click open and the sound of feet heading towards the stairs. Quickly, she deleted the message thread and jumped to her feet just as Becky appeared at the top of the stairs, “look I found your phone,” she said hurriedly, as she thrust the device in Becky’s direction.

Raising an eyebrow, Becky walked slowly over the Lisa, “so I see,” she said suspiciously, “thanks.”

Taking the phone Becky opened it up and scrolled through her notifications, seeing nothing new she sighed, popped the phone in her pocket and headed back upstairs.
