A cab causing a blaring noise drove across me, and whined down the glass at the passenger's window. A young dark guy in his thirties stretched his head out of the window and told me he was from Arnold. He opened the car's door, then I hopped into the car, resting my head on the car's head rest.
We arrived at the restaurant I and the ladies planned to eat. I moved in through the sliding door, then walked pass a couple, which I guess they were, giggling and leering at each other romantically. I sighted the girls at the arranged table, at the centre of the restaurant. To my wonder, I saw victor sat with them, looking around the restaurant, as if searching for someone.
"Hey! Welcome love." Ciara hollered at me with a large smile on her face.
"How come you are here victor?" I adjusted the empty sit beside Amy to seat down.
Chapter seventeen.***"Look at this dress Monica. I'm sure it's going to suit you well." Victor Unhanged a long - straight -pattern- gown in a gold form."This? Are you sure? This is not my taste." I glared at him, then to the dress, gazing at it like it is a rag or something."Come on. Just go try it on–" he handed it over to me, but didn't let it go. "Monica, are you okay? You have been feeling way to empty since you spoke to that lady. Though, I don't what you guys talked about, but you look stressed out.""Oh– It is –it nothing like that. I –will go try this on." I faked a smile and walked out of his sight."Miss –Pls show her to the dressing room." Victor called out to the attendant behind me. On getting there, I saw Arnold sat on a sofa closed to the dressing room, with his head crooked as he went through the magazine. The
ARNOLD'sI laid on the white sofa in the living room, with my laptop placed in front of me, applying for my usual contracts online. Then, I caught a glimpse of Loveth walked up to me in an high waist - blue jeans, and a top in tube form, dropping her butt on a sitter couch."Hey bro!""Hmm! What is it?" Still concentrating on my system."I guess you've booked the ticket?"Ye–ss!" I stressed out the word."I'm curious bro–wh–" she cleared a throat, which I knew very well it was a fake one."About what? I've booked the ticket. Anything else?""Why have you decided to go back to the states?" She pursed and said further; "I mean, you are here for Monica,
MONICA's.The girls rushed down to me believing I would give them the good news."How did it go Monica? I believe you guys are now back together, but he should be here with you." Ciara peeked behind me. "Where is he?"I burst out in to tears and knelt down unconsciously on the floor as the tears rushed down my cheeks. "I have lost him forever, I lost Arnold. Just a night has ruined my whole life, just a night has made me lost my first love, just a night made me lost everything, just everything guys.""Hey!" Olivia knelt in front of me and comforted me in her embraced. "You haven't lose it all Monica and you won't lost it all.""I have Olivia. I have," I pulled myself out of h
ARNOLD's.I and Loveth arrived at Monica's home few minutes later. There faces was painted with surprises as we moved more closer to them. They blurted out everything that has happened to me, before I was able to speak up. I was about going up through the stairs, when I met victor wrapped his arm around his chest with touches of confusion and curiosity on his face, blocking my path to stop me from going up. He never hesitated to stop being curious as he threw questions at me, expecting an explanation. All I care about now is Monica, I hope she is okay. I trust she wouldn't make mistakes, she is a strong lady. I believe she won't...That was the thought that kept running in my head as I ignored Victor questions making a way up for myself. They escorted me to her room, then I banged the door on getting there, but no response."Can
"What would you like to know exactly? That we've known each other for years? Or the fact that I am married to her legally? That she is my wife or the fact that we love each other and can't live without each other? What more do you need to know exactly?" I folded my arms around my chest, staring at his eyes which was already filled with raged."Tell me all these are jokes. Like seriously?" He smirked. "You must be joking.""This is the bitter truth you wouldn't wanna know but you want to hear them.""What the hell are you saying, you must be joking." He released my cloth suddenly and groaned. "I want to hear the side of her story, I'll be back."I gasped and grabbed myself on the waist as I watched him left in anger.***<
~~~"Awwn awwn –not bad." We all cackled as Amy jested."Thanks love. I love you." I rued at her. "You deserve more." She said in a wide smile."So girl, I wanna get busy. Take care of yourself." Doctor Emilia said as she moved closer to me, placing her palm on my cheek."When will I be discharge mum? I hope I will get discharge today?" I wrapped my hand around the flask in between my leg."Not today darling –""Come on mum. I need to be discharged today, in fact now. Everyone is here to take care of me, I will be fine.""OK love, I trust that. You will be discharged today then." She conceded, and waggled her hand as if giving up."Awwn, thanks mum." I gestured happily. Mum left in a grinned and placed her hand softly on Arnold's shoulder."So tell me babe. Why are you in a rush to get discharged?" Amy wrapped her arm around her bosom and shook her head towards me expecting an answer."You know the answers to that already. Did you know how much she has missed –Oh my–" Lilian teased
~~~I squinted my eyes as the morning sunlight conjured the most brilliant of mosaics, reflecting from each leaf and wisp of cloud. It was as if there was a pure joy in the light, as if it were happy to create art where it shone, warm and steady.I took a glimpse of the back of a tall man standing at the window. I protected my eyes with my hand as he spread the curtains to allow the sunshine into the room."Come on! It is morning love." Arnold clasped his hand and walked towards me on the bed."Arnold!" I grunted as I bounced back on the bed. "I need more sleep." I murmured and shut back my eyes.Arnold pulled off the duvet from me and dragged me up from the bed. "You gonna be late for work, don't be lazy.""Arnold!" My eyes still remained closed.His cold lips clashed on my forehead, "Thanks for the night." Then, to my nose.I groaned and opened my eyes half. He moved down to the long table glass that was placed beside the window in the room. He brought down the tray on it, then mo
"I saw that Mrs.– Mrs what?" Victor cackled annoyingly. "What a funny joke."We both walked pass the noisy section of staffs– which were tied down on their sit, their finger tips made the sound of the keyboard and the floor was littered with A4 papers. This was because of the project assigned to each staff of the company which they had to submit at the end of the week. The aim of this particular project is to make LA company signed a contract with us which that would promote our company.The staff that got the privilege to hold a meeting or a presentation with that company through the project will surely be promoted. I guessed that was why they are working really hard, and they barely noticed me.Some of them bowed down before me as I walked into the elevator. I attempted to press the 4th floor before Victor stopped that by holding onto the door.He smirked, "Are you leaving me behind my beautiful lady?" He moved into the elevator and reached for the 10th bottom."What are you doing?
