My sound sleep was disrupted by the sound of my phone ringing, not even my alarm. What the heck?
I ignored it and let it ring to an end, but it began ringing again and I groaned out of sleep and reached for the phone which was on the head of the bed.I opened my bleary eyes to check out the caller and noticed it was Nicole. Huh? Why the hell's she calling me this early? Or is she tryna tell me.me to get ready for . school?
I sat up tiredly on the bed and picked the call.
"Bethel!" She screamed immediately and I flinched.What the heck is wrong with her?
"Oh, my gee! Don't tell me you're still asleep. Are you for real?" She beamed and I buried my fingers into my hair.I still. Couldn't get her point.
"You're missing out, Bethel. Oh my gee! Ryan's back! My greatest superstar is back! Turn on the TV, Bethel. Hurry up. They're showing his arrival at the airport!" She spoke with so much enthusiasm and I scoffed.
"Nicole...was this really the reason you woke me up?" I asked.
"Well, of course, Bethel. Everyone's watching it. Oh, my! He's so cute. I can't wait to go for his concert tonight. The entire city will be there" she enthused.I rubbed my eyes and sighed.
"You're crazy, Nic" I told her and dropped the call.Gosh! I can't believe this lady woke me this early just to inform me of Ryan's return. If not for the fact she was my best friend and we've been friends for eight years now, I'd have gotten mad at her.
I reached for the TV remote and turned on the flat screen TV in my room and indeed, they were showing a live video of Ryan returning at the airport. Wow!Oh! And Lady K was with him.
Ryan was the most popular, young and wealthiest pop up musician, not just in the country, but in the continent as well.The whole country worshipped him like a god as he was admired by many.
I heard people don't get to touch him except for his family and he was also the heir to the Winthrop Enterprise, although he had step siblings.
He's dreamy and his mere presence around ladies makes them collapse at times.
As young as he was, he's won over ten awards and the country gave him a name - The country's Pride.He's the only American musician that's brought such honor and pride to his country. As a matter of fact, he has a special day in the country and that's 12th April.
On every 12th April, there's to be a public holiday and it'd be used just to celebrate his name.He's really become a king.
He's the richest idol in the continent - wears the most expensive dresses, the more valuable jewelries, drives the latest cars and I heard he doesn't wear a cloth more than once. But I also heard he's rude and hot tempered and finds it hard to forgive; although it doesn't do a thing to his fame. People still adore him.
For four years now, he's been staying in Georgia city, but he's just returned here in Dallas and it's been the talk of the whole city.
I heard he owns two mansions in Georgia - where one is among the top three most expensive buildings in the country.He owns one in Kentokie and two here in Dallas.
As young as he was, he was a bastard billionaire.But, I also heard one annoying thing about him - he was a flirt.
Hm. I guess you might be wondering how I got to know all these about him.Well, like I said, he's more of a god over here and everybody loves him.
Although, he's dreamy and all that, but...I can't fangirl over him like the other ladies do and that's because I already have a boyfriend.Yup! I do.
I stood up from the bed and decided to get ready for school since Nicole already acted as my alarm today.Ryan's arrival at the airport was . still being shown at the airport, but I left it and walked out of the room.
I climbed down the stairs into the sitting room and met one of the maids - lana - doing some clean up.
"Good morning, ma'am Bethel" she greeted in obeisance as I entered the sitting room.
"Good morning, Lana" I replied and walked over to the dining which was behind the sitting room.A refrigerator was behind it and I opened it and brought out an apple, taking a bite.
"Lana" I called as I sat on one of the chairs in the dining.Lana turned from the sitting room and looked at me.
"Did mummy come home last night?" I asked.
"Yes, ma'am. She did. But she left very early this morning, saying she had something important to attend to" she replied and I rolled my eyes.
She always have more important things to do - things that are more important than me.
Well, I guess I should do a little introduction myself.
I'm Bethel Cyrus 19 years old and the only child to my single mother.I attend one of the best High School in the country and I'm already in my final year.
I have no idea who my father is; mum never talked about him.And my mum...sometimes, I forget I even have a mum. Although, she's filthy rich and provides everything I need - makes sure I get the best of life and all that - but she doesn't have time for me. She's always busy.
She returns home late at night when I'm already asleep and leaves very early the next morning even before I'm awake.Sometimes, I only get to see her once in three days. As a result, I'm usually lonely; but thanks to Nicole who tries to.to keep me company at times.
After consuming half of the apple, I kept the remnant on the table and left for my room so I could take my bath.
I got into my room, changed into a towel and went into the bathroom, laying in the bath tub afterwards.I enjoyed the warm soapy water in It and when I was done, I came out and returned to the room.
The TV was no longer showing Ryan at the airport.
Oops! My phone was ringing on the bed.I hurried to it and discovered it was Jackson calling. Awwn! I blushed in a smile.
Well, Jackson was my...you know? Boyfriend.
"Hey" I said breezily on the phone as I sat on the bed.
"Hey; bae. Wata up?" He asked in that cute romantic tone of his.I love it when he calls me bae.
"I'm fine and you? " I replied.
"I'm cool. So, you getting ready fro school?" He asked.He was already in college.
"Yeah." I replied, still smiling.
"Okay. Um...I was wondering. Will you be changed to come over to my place when you're done from school? It's important" he asked and I itched my head.Well, what will I be doing at home?
"Sure. I'll be there" I replied and felt him smile.
"Okay; bye. Love you" he said and ended the call before I'd reply with an I love you too.
I smiled and stared at the screen for a while. Then, I dropped it on the bed and went to the wardrobe to get my school uniform.
But, I kind of wonder why Jackson wants me to see him at home.
After putting on the dashing school uniform which was a short high waist skirt and purple long sleeve, I went for my purple stockings and black sneakers and brushed my dark hair in front of the mirror.I let the hair fall freely on my shoulders and applied a light brown lipstick on my lips.
Wow! I admired myself in front of the mirror. I was looking as pretty as ever.Well, it's not like I'm being boastful or something; it's just that everybody says I'm uniquely beautiful.
I had white sparkling eyes and a kind of small face - which fitted me though.But the main thing that drives people crazy is my shape.Yeah, even my mum tells me I've got the best shape.
My butts were very big and my boobs - big and firm.My waist was slim and narrowed down to my big butts, giving it a perfect figure 8 - like they call it.
Our uniform which was a short high waist skirt wasn't helping matters either as the high waist made my butts more attractive.
Over half of the ladies in school envied me because I was the only girl who drew that much attention to herself. All the boys have been crazy over me and even if I keep singing it to them that I'm in a relationship already, it still doesn't stop them from running after me.
Well, it isn't my fault, is it? I didn't create myself.
After primping myself up and making doubly sure I was ready to go, I took my pink designers school bag and sauntered out of the room.
Bethel's Pov:I got to the dining where breakfast had already been served for me and I sat and ate. It was bagel and cream cheese.It was so boring eating alone but I was already getting used to it, since mum had the habit of not staying at home.Sometimes, I wish my life was a little different from this.After consuming half of the meal, I stood up and left; walking out to the parking lot where my driver was already waiting for me."Good morning, ma'am Bethel" he greeted as I approached the black van."Good morning Josh" I replied cursorily and walked in, taking the back seat.He got into the driver's seat and took off.I brought out my phone to while away time before getting to school.The driver turned on the car's fm and the channel that was tuned was talking about Ryan.Perfect.I tucked my hair behind my ear and tried listening to what th
They were the most troublesome bullies in school and were best of friends and as a result of their names - Alma, Blair and Cheryl - they were nicknamed the ABC girls.They walked in with Blair in their middle and stopped at a group of four girls who were talking about Ryan and going through his pictures.Blair snapped the phone from them and the girls gasped."Blair, what are you doing?" One of them asked as she opened her eyes wide in surprise.She tried collecting the phone from Blair, but she giggled and didn't let her."Can you imagine? They're actually looking at Ryan's pictures" Blair said teasingly as she showed the phone to Alma and Cheryl beside her."Seriously, I wonder why they're wasting their time dreaming on something that can never be theirs" Alma said blatantly and Blair shrugged."Well, that's none of your business. Give me back my phone" the owner of the phone cried."You know, if I were you, I
Bethel's Pov:I gave my driver the location of the house and as I sat art the back seat headed there, he suddenly called me as if he knew I was thinking about him."Hey" he called and I breathed out softly."H...Hey. um...good day" I replied, unexplainably feeling twitchy."How're you bae? You're done from school already?" He asked and I nodded like he could see me."I'm on my way now" I told him and could tell it litted him up."okay dear. I'm waiting. Stay safe okay?""Sure. Bye"and I dropped the call.I brushed my fingers into my hair and staredstared through the window as a drove pass by big buildings, people and trees.Nicole's words suddenly flashed into my head.I don't really know much about Jackson. I mean, I just met him a month ago and he seemed really nice.He asked me out and I accepted, but Nicole thinks I did the wron
Bethel's Pov:I tried pushing him away but couldn't as he kept weighing me down and kissing me.Next; he sent his hands under my skirt and my fears increased. Jackson can't do this to me. I'm not ready for this.Without looking, I moved my hand and reached for the glass of wine on the table and luckily, I was able to get it.I took it up and poured it into his face and it inconvenienced him. That way, I was able to push him away and stood on my feet immediately."Bethel...""What the hell's wrong with you, Jackson?" I yelled angrily and brooked him from holding my hand.I nabbed my bag from the chair and ran out of the house immediately"Bethel wait!" I heard him call after me but didn't stop to look at him as I took to my heels and got to the gate.I opened the gate myself and rushed out and thank goodness! I saw a cab immediately I got to the road and I boarded it.**I got ho
Bethel's Pov:It so wasn't easy passing through the entrance as many people kept trooping in and out. If not for the face Nicole and I were holding hands, we'd have definitely been splitted.After jostling our way through the crowd, we finally got outside and I breathed out heavily as we did."Geez!" I mumbled and let go of Nicole's hand.As expected, everybody around kept talking and dreaming of Ryan's performance. Shocking enough, I saw a lady crying while telling her friends how he almost touched her."So, tell me, Bethel; how was it? Tell me you didn't enjoy it" Nicole said, smiling and I scoffed."You know me, Nicole; I'm not a music person' I replied."And whoever said you needed to be a music person before falling in love with Ryan? Anyway, I know you're just bluffing. You're definitely crushi
They were three in number and just one was sitting and smoking while the rest remained standing.Probably, the one sitting and smoking was actually the boss.Seriously? As young as he was?I scoffed and shook my head."Sorry, I'm not interested" I said bluntly and tried walking away, but they held me back by the arm.This time around, it was the one who hadn't said a word."Sorry, hot legs; but you're going nowhere" he said with a smirk and it made my heart leap.I huffed and looked at him."What are you talking about? Let me go!' I said and tried withdrawing my head from his, but couldn't.Surprisingly, they started dragging me away and I couldn't stop them."Let me go!" I shrieked as they both held my hand and took me to the so called boss.They stopped when we got there."What's the mean
The next morning,I woke up to the sound of my alarm which I angrily turned off.I sat up on the bed and itched my eyes, trying to get over the sleep.Gosh! I still felt so dizzy.I left the bed and went into the bathroom to brush my teeth. Then, I went to the dining to check if breakfast was ready. I mean, I was starving.As I climbed down the stairs approaching the dining, I saw someone already seated there.Huh? Mum?I furrowed my brows in surprise as I went closer. What's she still doing here? I mean, I can't find the last time I woke up and found her still at home."Mum...good morning" I greeted with surprise."Oh! Bethel; you're just in time to join me for breakfast. Come on" she said and I scoffed and took a seat, facing her.She was already dressed up and it was obvious she'd be lea
Bethel's Pov:I sat next to mum in the front seat as she drove into the...Oh, my God! This is paradise!She drove into the black gate which had so many securities around and we entered into the Winthorpe mansion.Oh, my gee! This is more than a mansion. It's incredible.No wonder the winthrop mansion has been the talk of the city.The party which was a beanfeast, was taking place outside and mum and I alighted from the car after she parked in the parking lot.I almost opened my mouth in bemusement as I looked around the mansion. Just the outside was looking this great. I could imagine how the inside would look like. Wow!"Matilda!" a woman called mum's name and scuttled towards us as we approached the party.Oh! It was Ryan's mum."Becky!" Mum also called and they both hugged each other.Wow! Ryan's mum was looking so beautiful."I'm glad you could make it" she said and took her eyes to me."Oh, my! Is this Bethel?"
