MARIE RICHWOOD P.O.V
Mrs. Adams and Cyrus were nowhere to be seen so I just made my way to class. It was a free period when I got back. Anna rushed to meet me immediately I entered. I almost spit out in disgust when she grabbed my arm linking mine with hers.
I shrugged her off irritably “What is it? Did you not get what you wanted? Principal Francis made I and Cyrus break up “I accused her for good effect. I told them lies so they would help spread it around the school, minions are a good source of rumormongering that way Principal Francis can get off my back for a while.
She looked taken aba
CYRUS KAYE P.O.VI saw Mrs. Adams off to the school gate, standing in front of me in her full motherly figure, she took my hand in hers giving it a reassuring squeeze“Don’t think too much about this sugar. Your Dad is not going to have his way this time around I will not let him. Do not end things with that girl. I can see she makes you happy. It is high time you show your father you are not the selfish man he is. You are capable of love my dear and you also need to be loved. “She pulled me into a hug. I wrapped my hands around her needing an extra bout of encouragement. It would be my first time of opening fighting for my needs. Marie was worth fighting for, and I will
MARIE RICHWOOD P.O.VStaring at the shiny pink phone ringing endlessly in my hand, I knew I had to pick up the call or else Dad would have a fit. But I was not ready to face Dad. He would ask me endless questions about Cyrus and I was not in the mood for his fatherly advice. Class had ended long ago, and I was waiting for Cyrus in the nearly empty classroom. Forced to answer greetings from my classmates, hypocritical or genuine I could not care less. All I wanted was Cyrus Kaye to materialize in front of me.I waited a little longer but Cyrus was nowhere to be found including Nicole who I was most definitely not searching for. I heaved a sigh of relief when my phone stopped ringing. I sat
MARIE RICHWOOD P.O.VThe tension in the room was large enough to be splintered into two by an axe. George and I sat dutifully on the settee; the both of us had been shocked into silence by Dad’s earlier expression of anger. George expression of sadness had gradually waned slowly being replaced by annoyance. My displeasure at being kept sitted in the living room was slowly edging its way into my face and I knew my patience was waning with Dad’s continual pacing which was blowing me out of my mind. Mom sat in front of us, I knew Mom would always take our side no matter what. She was my mother after all, in as much as she gives off the humble aura shit. She was a tigress within and even D
CYRUS KAYE P.O.VI searched for Marie to no avail. I needed to tell her about Nicole, Nicole had been sincere with me in her explanation and I knew it was the truth. Whatever scheme Marie had George on, it needs to be aborted right away. I sighed in defeat. The school compound was nearly devoid of students. I scanned the area for any jot of blond hair around but I saw none.Recalling where I last saw Nicole, I went there, hoping I would see Nicole and George and clear out this issue, before it became a mess.I ran towards the building hastingly, I could heard no noise, or any sign of movement. I went in noiselessly, entering the administrative part of the lab
CYRUS KAYE P.O.VDad’s mahogany desk had never fascinated me this much before; I kept my eye glued to the wide beautiful desk. It was also my first time of describing the desk as beautiful. However, I would do anything to avoid the stares Mom and Dad were currently giving each other. Are you shocked? I am as well. It had been a complete turnaround of tables. After I took the bend to his office, I could hear the loud exchange of words between Mom and Dad. I chuckled. This was unusual; they have been able to tolerate each other all this while and ended up treating me unimportantly. What could have lighted the buried tension between them? My answer was not far-fetched. They were arguing because of me. This was a new happening as well. Know
CYRUS KAYE P.O.VStanding in front of her door, I waited anxiously for Marie to pick up the call. My voice was blocked with so much tears, I just wanted a shoulder to lean on.Turning back, I sauntered into the night. But the sound of my name being called made me halt my steps, I turned to look at Marie, she was leaning against the door frame, she slipped out quietly, her hair was flowing all around her, giving her some sort of angelic look. She had a short blue nightgown on, which stopped mid thighs; I forced my eye to leave her smooth legs that were on full display, fully accentuated by the street light. MARIE RICHWOOD P.O.VI could not believe what I was being told. Cyrus was an extremely intelligent person. He must have guessed the connection. I was speechless. I never mentioned anything to him but he was able to decode game plan with George and Marie.I looked at him content with my choice, he was so relaxed sitting on my bed, bare chested, the chest I had just been touching minutes ago. He was looking so cool and handsome, I could not believe my luck, not only was he smart, he was gorgeous.“So what you are trying to say now is that Nicole is not in love with you?” George asked for the thi

MARIE RICHWOOD P.O.VElated at Dad’s approval to let me stay back in South Africa. I was beyond joyous at his affirmation that morning when Mom gave me the news. Mom was grinning too seeing how happy I was. I had no doubt she must have a hand in Dad changing his mind. I thanked her appropriately before entering the car. George was already sitted with Dad who ignored me as I took my seat at the backseat.Cyrus had left the house early in the morning after receiving a call from his mother, a call he had been reluctant to take. Whatever miracle happened. Mrs. Kaye had been able to argue her way out with her husband. Her son was not going to leave his birth home; she had also disclosed that the huge house belonged to Cyrus as his grandfather
