I snatched the phone from Christian, wondering why he was acting so playful all of a sudden before hanging up. He was grinning and I felt like slapping it off his face.
"Why did you do that ?" I asked him and he crossed his legs.
"You weren't going to pick so I helped"
"Do you know the, things running through his head right now?" I was furious.
"Calm down. I didn't fuck you"
I sighed frustrated, glancing at Ella, she was sitting on her own almost dazing off. I carried her and started for her room.
She smelt of ice and was sticky so I decided to bathe her. She woke up sometimes but went back to sleep. I finally dressed her and lay her in bed and that's when he came in.
"Is she asleep?"
I ignored him and shut Ella's bedside light. Before I could go out of the room, he pinned me against the wall. We were so close I could feel his hot breath on my neck.
"I asked you a question" he said and I shivered.
"I don't always answer to strangers" I said cooly.
His brows ached and I turned and walked out of the room. He followed after me. I could feel it. He pulled my arm.
"Your hairpin" he said raising a black thing in his hand. He took it off while I was engrossed in his closeness. He grinned.
"You didn't even know I took it. Here" I collected it from him feeling like a fool. "Are you leaving now?"
"I'm waiting for Richard to get back" I explained and he nodded.
"You can leave I'll stay and by the way you need to explain stuffs to your boyfriend" he said, and started walking back up thestairs.
"Say hi to Garry for me!" He said before he was out of my sight. Such a rude thing.
I left the house leaving a note for Richard on the counter.
When I got back, Garry was already asleep so I undressed and got into bed. His arms wrapped round my waist and he muffled something. I brushed the little strand of hair from his face and kissed his lips.
"Good night" I whispered.
I rolled on the bed to feel Garry's warmth but it wasn't there. I got up to find him sitting on the bed side staring at me. His legs was crossed and he had a glass of juice in his hand.
"Morning" I muffled and he just sipped his juice.
"How was your night?"
He got up and strolled out of the room. He was acting weird all of a sudden. I brushed my teeth and went down to find him sitting watching Netflix. I went to sit by him.
"Are you angry with me?"
"I don't know Marcy"
I shook my head. "Please don't be ok?"
"Why Mar? Why can't I be? You only care about yourself, you don't consider others"
"What are you talking about?" I asked. Maybe it was about last night. Shit! I lowered my head. He must have caught on.
"Was that Richard?"
"No one important"
"He fucking complimented you. Told you smelled nice, and then you hung up on me." Garry yelled and I jerked. He put off the movie and faced me. "You guys seemed to have had a romantic time"
"Please stop! What are you talking about?".
He got up. "I'm talking about the guy you said is not important"
He got up and I did too.
"He's not important" how could I tell Garry it was a famous Billonaire who would never be interested in me, because he already have some model. Garry won't even believe and say I was making up stories. It won't be the first time he'd accused me of cheating.
"Great! You know what? I'll just go up, pack my things and leave"
I held his arm and tears rolled down my cheek.
"Don't. I just met him at the house. Richard's friend, please believe me"
He sighed. "I will but I need time"
I watched as Garry walked up the stairs, packed his things and came back down. I couldn't even move.
"I'll be back Mar. I just need space ok baby?" he cupped my cheek and I nod.
He placed a soft kiss on my lips before he walked out of the house. And just like that, he was gone.
I got dressed for work and left the apartment. Judy did not sleep in the house last night but at Chad's place.
Berry greeted me with a warm hug and smiles.
"We have a contract again"
My face brightened up. " From Who?"
I frowned a bit. Why didn't Richard tell me in person.
"Did you sleep well last night? You look tired" Berry notes and I shrug, walking to sit behind the counter. The sweet smell of flour, milk and send eggs, always made me feel cheerful. It was like an abode. I get lost in baking.
"I'm fine just get to work. Where's Jade?"
"His making sugar icings"
I nod, and she walked off. The bell dinged and in walked Richard. I allowed him gave me a quick hug.
"Thank you for last night" he said with a bright smile.
"Anytime. I'm available" I said with a giggle that soon faded. Behind Richard was Garry fuming. God! Its not what it looks like. I know what he'd just heard sounded wrong but...it was so innocent.
"Garry" I called and he walked out of the shop. I followed him.
"Garry please wait!".
He stopped and I was able to catch up to him.
" Let me explain "
"I felt guilty for walking off this morning and I come to your work place and that guy is thanking you for last night. What do you want me to think Mar"
I nodded. He was understandable but still, its not what he's thinking.
"It was for sitting his daughter Gar"
"Fuck that. I'm leaving now" he turned to go and stopped. "How long have you been doing that since I was gone huh?"
I shook my head in disbelieve. "I can't believe you think this of me Garry. You know what? I was wrong to even ask you to stay. I was wrong to shed a tear for you this morning. Just something little and you're all worked up!"
He stepped close to me but I moved back. "Get out Garry. Now"
"Leave! Go back to Gina! I'm sure you've wanted that all along. Judy was right" with that, I stomped off and went back into the shop. There's no way he'd be pushing me away like this if he didn't have someone else. Richard was laughing and talking with Berry.
"Are you alright?" He asked me and I nod.
"Get the cupcakes so I can deliver it" I told Berry and she went off.
"You have a delivery to make, so I'll leave now" he waved me goodbye. I wanted to tell him it was to Vance but I was in no mood to ride with him in case he asked. Berry came back with the containers and I left the shop for Vance. My day couldn't get any worse than this.
I stopped in from of Vance building, hopped out of the taxi before paying my fare. I need to get a car. When I step into the building, I allow myself to take in the amazing decor and sweet smell of papers and even morning coffees from the staffs that walked by. I found the elevator and got in. I'm always lucky not to miss it.This time it wasn't the conference room but an office. I didn't know who but I knocked on the door anyway, forgetting to read the logo at the top of the door.A lady with tight blond bun came out and told me to go in.As I stepped in, my breath was taken away with the expanse of the office. Black and white was the interior color, green leaves lined the office and a water tank was situated on a glass table by the wall. The office is well furnished with modern designs. I approached a figure with dark suit standing by the window."Um.. Hello"He turned and my heart jolte
At six, a black limousine pulled into the drive way and I quickly picked up my Silver purse. I was wearing a silver sandals and my hair was styled the Italian way simply because Berry was half Italian. Her grandma hailed somewhere from there...or so she said.I took the elevator down and met Richard. His eyes were sparkling and he looked dazzling and handsome in that back tux. He opened the door for me and we both got into the back seat. I smiled at the driver."So who's watching Daniella tonight?" I asked Richard."The sitter is back" he said before turning to me." You look pretty in that dress" he said.I smiled "you're not so bad yourself"...The party was held at a hall in Mega Hotel. I hopped down and clinged unto Richards arms. When we stepped in, I wondered who the host was. The place was finely designed and looked expensive. The people were also expensive. They we
Richard left the party because he had something urgent to do. He told his chauffeur to take me home when I was ready to leave. The party was boring but there was good food so is stuck around.I sat alone on a table drinking my wine and watching as people laughed and chatted away. Some danced and some seemed to be engrossed in serious business talks. My eyes roamed the room"Alone.?" Christians hot breath fanned my neck, making me bite my lip. His closeness always does something to me, and he knows that. He took a seat beside me afterwards. How does he always find me?"Not really. I was happy being alone" I said faintly. I wasn't ready for his bad mouth right now."You know you look awful in that dress"Great! What I was waiting for!"Thank you""It wasn't a compliment. You look better of in jeans and sweatshirts not dinner gowns""You're t
My eyes scanned Christian's eyes for any missing emotion but there was none. It seemed so real.His eyes searched mine too."Tell me Marcy. Did I hurt you?" He asked again. I gulped a tear down."Hmm" I couldn't speak. He pulled me into his arms and I was stunned. It was a new feeling of warmth. Not Garry's or Richards or even Judy or her boyfriend but the warmth of Christian. I held his charcoal suit in my hand clenching it. The first time I'd hugged him, he still smells so nice and minty."I'm sorry Marcy" he said again.I was getting worried at how calm and caring he was. And towards me for that matter. No! I couldn't believe it yet. It was too good to be true."Christian... "I wanted to pull away from the hug but his grip on me was too strong."Liano... What is wrong with you?" I asked calmly and almost like it wasn't a question.
I wrapped my arms round Christians neck drawing him close to me. I need more. His hands cupped my cheek and his tongue slipped into my mouth. I lifted my head up so he could get a good entrance. It was passionate and lasting until he pulled away. I want more I almost beg.We were both breathing hard. He pushed me to the wall and pinned my hands above my head. He wanted more just like I wanted more too. We just crave each other."Marcy"I don't blame him for only saying my name. Right now, I was also speechless. All I could think of was the kiss we just shared."Christian my hands. Your hurting my wrist"He pulled away. "I'm sorry"He walked towards his bed and sat down. He buried his face in his palms."Does it hurt? Your wrist"I shook my head slowly. "Not anymore""Um.. You should get going now
Judy kept glaring at me all the while I was dressing up. I knew what she was thinking. I was falling for Garry's trap again but what's the worst he could do. I turned my back to her so she could help me with my hair. She was good at packing French Styles, royal styles, bridal styles and all kind of styles you can think of."You look too good tonight to be with Garry" Judy finally blurt. I rolled my eyes and wore the rhinestone earring Garry got me last year."I'm giving him another chance to prove his love for me""What about you? Do you love him or you're just pitying him." She asked as she continued with my hair. It was ready looking good and she wasn't even done yet."I don't know Judy. I just need time""That's stupid. Right now you guys are just acting as sex toys to each other. He doesn't love you"I got up abruptly and turned to my best friend. "I'm willing to take
Christian took slow steps towards me and when he stood directly in front of me, he took off his jacket and wrapped it round my exposed body.I blinked waiting for his outburst but it never came. He pulled me in for a hug, kissed my hair, then pulled away."Christian"He let out a little smile and then, carried me bridal style. I held unto his neck my eyes never leaving his. He was focused on the road and I kept on blinking away the tears that formed in my eyes. It was the perfect shoulder to cry on and he didn't seem to mind. He just kept on walking. I drowned my self in tears until I slept in the arms of Christian Vance.Christians POVThe thought of ever seeing tears in Marcy's eyes always set up something in me I didn't understand. And today at that stupid fucked up party I didn't want to attend but thank God I attended. I saw tears in Marcy's eye
