The scent Episode 19 to 22

*🌺🥀THE SCENT 🥀🌺*
All I felt right now, was pain!
“How could you!?” I roared at her and I saw her backed away from me.
Idi0t still have the mouth to call me mom?
I would never mother a wicked soul like her!.
So my instinct was right all along?
That girl from yesterday was my Oona!
I gave her that name.
I asked her to. And she did named her Oona.
After my husband’s warning not to go see the woman again and i know is because he doesn’t know the truth of the matter.
And when he saw that I wasn’t ma-king any attempt to st©p seeing her, he f0rç£fully asked me to travel out of the state with Dwayne.
And it was after 5 years that we [email protected]£ back.
I looked and searched for her but couldn’t find her. Then,I lost all hope of seeing her and my daughter again.
But not until I saw that lady yesterday!. She smelt of my daughter. The resemblance wasn’t a mistake!.
How do I beg her to forgive me now?
How would I tell him I didn’t mothered him?
I loved him!
I loved her!
I loved them both.
“Where are they?” I asked finally calming down a bit.
“I truly don’t know ma!” She replied with a shaky voice.
I know she’s probably confused right now and i also know am scaring her. But she deserves it all.
What if she wasn’t my daughter?
What right does she have to drop them on the express in that heavy rain? She’s surely wicked!.
I once thought she’s the right person for my Dwayne.
But now I know she doesn’t deserve my son. Not even a bit.
“You don’t know where they are staying also. do you?”I asked her again.
” I…I…. don’t know ma…but I can take you…some… somewhere!”she stuttered and I felt myself finally calming down with the little hope she just gave me.
“Okay!…take me there!”
“Right now!” I added.
“Ok….okay ma!” She replied.
I just hope to see her again!.
My daughter!
My pretty daughter!.
We got outside and she ordered angrily for me to get into the back seat of her car.
She got into the drivers seat,ignited the engine,and drove out of the mansion.
I don’t know why she’s worried about those two beggars.
I painfully took my hand to my cheek.
“Ouuuch!” I gro-an ed lowly. She gave me a three thun-derous [email protected]
If not that I skrie-ked away from her she would have given me the forth one.
Those two!
Those two would definitely die by my hand.
I would make sure I squee-ze the life out of them!
“Where!” She shouted from the drivers seat and I flin-ch.
” This direction ma!”I quic-kly replied her.
I continued showing her the direction to the restaurant.
“Are you sure this is the place?” She asked when we got there.
” Yes ma!”
“am very sure they would pas-s by very soon!”I told her but she kept mute not saying anything.
Throu-ghout my stay in office today,if you don’t know me being the CEO, you will definitely think i won some sort of lottery.
I was giggling and whistling silently all throu-gh.
I even told my secretary I won’t come to office tomorrow. I alre-ady s£nt one of my female worker home. I gave her my VIP master card.
I asked her to buy a lot of foodstuff and also everything the both of them would be nee-ding. I also did only browsing for the best cook in this country.
Amelia told me she doesn’t know how to prepare any meal so I want the best cook in this city to be her lecturer.
Oh!…i haven’t called mom to reas-sure her that am okay!.
I got so occu-pied with all what am beginning to imagine that I would do for those two. I think I should call her now.
I picked up my phone and dialed her number.
It seems shes busy because she picked up on the fifth ring.
🏬”Hello Dwayne!…how are you doing?…why haven’t you been picking up your calls?” She asked in one breath and i chuckled.
🏬” I…i….am.n…n…ot..feeelig…fine!” I gro-an ed and I heard her intake of breath.
A little prank will do.
We are no more in the midnight ans am very sure nothing would happen to her in this broad daylight and with a lot of maid in the mansion to take care of her.
“What!…” She shouted fearfully and I silently broke into laughter.
“Am coming!…wait a little while Dwayne!… plea-se stay strong for momma…plea-se son!”I heard her say and i bet her voice was as if she was crying.
” What Mom…”I wanted to say but she alre-ady hanged up.
Am in for trouble today!. I know she won’t come to the company but she would go straight ahead to my house.
Alex and Amelia!
I have to go home now.
I [email protected]£d my car key and headed outside.
Mom would be really angry with me when she get to know am keeping two strange human being inside my house.
🌷🌹🌹🌷🥀🥀THE SCENT🌹🌹🌹🥀🥀🥀🥀🥀
(WHEN A RICH MAN FALL IN LOVE WITH A BEGGAR 🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️)
I drove at high speed to Dwayne’s mansion.
I just can’t afford to lose my son.
“plea-se save him!….God!…save my son!” I keep praying silently.
I got to his mansion and drove in.
I got out of the car in an haste, quic-kly pressed his pas-sword, and the door flew wi-de opened.
“Dwayne?” I called loudly when I got inside.
“Dwayne?”I called again but got no reply.
“Mommy is here for you son!”I said with a broken voice.
I was about to walk towards his room,
And then,
I saw her!
I saw them!
My baby!
The baby I went in search of earlier.
Right here in Dwayne’s house.
Destiny cannot be debar!.
“My baby?”I called uncertainly.
“My baby!”I shouted and ran to hvg her.
No way am letting her go anymore.
People would criticize me! I know they would say sort of things!. Like how greedy I am! How selfish and wicked I am! But I don’t care! In as much as I can have the forgiveness of my baby. I won’t care!.
I know how confused she is right now because I can feel her b©dy stiffened.
Just as I was about to dis£ngage from the hvg, I saw the door creaked open. I look back and saw Dwayne.
Nothing is wrong with him?
I left for home immediately my mom called. She mustn’t find out about Alex and Amelia.
I drove at a little high speed. I got home and
She arrived earlier than me. How am I going to face her?.
I got in and, The sight I met was confusing.
What’s happening?
I expected to meet more delicate sight! But the position I met my mom was a very confusing one.
I looked besides me and saw that W!TCH!
Why is she here?
I told my eyes to mom again and she alre-ady dis£ngaged from the hvg.
Why is she hvgging Amelia?
“Mom?”I called when I saw how teary her eyes was.
“Mom!”I ran to her.
“Mom!…why are you crying?”
“As you can see am okay!”
“So quit all this act and st©p crying!”I rushed.
“Am sorry!”
“Am so sorry Dwayne!”
“Oona”she abruptly faced Amelia.
Who is Oona?
“plea-se forgive me Oona!”she cried and I [email protected]
Isn’t that the name of the little girl my mom always took me to see when during my childhood?
“Mom!…who is Oona?”I asked out of curiosity.
“She’s Oona!…she’s my baby!”she said and I [email protected] again.
No wonder!
So that scent!
Now I remember!
That scent was my childhood memories.
My childhood friend Oona!
Oh my!
I thought as much!
I should have think de-eply about it.
But wait!
“Your baby?”I asked to be sure of what I heard her say just now.
“Am so sorry!….Dwayne!…Oona!…Am Soo sorry!”she pleaded again instead of answering my question.
“Mom I thought I just asked a question?”I directed at her lowly.
Hoping is not in anyway what am thinking.
“She’s my daughter!”
“She really is my daughter!”
“I exchanged you guys!”
“I’m sorry!…. I’m seriously sorry!”she rasped and I scoffed.
She must be joking right?
I’m confused! I really am in a state of dilemma!.
Am her baby?
She exchanged us?
Who and who did she exchanged?
She’s even calling me OOna.
“Have we met before?”I asked her confusingly.
“Yes!….yes Oona!…am your mother!…. forgive me plea-se!”she begged sitting on the floor.
I looked at sir Dwayne and he also has the same confused look.
“Mom!….I don’t seems to un-derstand anymore!…yes, you said she’s Oona!…the daughter of your friend then, my childhood friend also….the daughter of that po…”he wanted to say but restricted himself.
I saw his expression changed to that I couldn’t tell.
I don’t un-derstand anything going on here.
Sir Dwayne is my childhood friend?
Oh no!
Why must I lost my memory in the first place?
“Yes!…she’s Oona!”
“I will reveal everything!”
“I will confess!”she cried out again.
“Okay…just sit down first!…sit and explain!”Dwayne told her and she obliged.
“30 years ago….”she started.
And I balanced and prepare myself to hear her confession as she said!.
“30 years ago!…” I started at the verge of breaking down and crying again.
” 30 years ago, my husband families were on my n£¢k when they heard about the scan I went to do at the hospital!”
“i had a miscarriage twice before… And when I got pregnant this time around, my husband, Mr Moor didn’t allow even the smallest insect which can only be seen by using a microscope to t©uçh me!”
“h… the most caring husband have ever seen!.. he loved me wholeheartedly!” I said with my emotions at the peak of my voice.
“but…. But when I went to do the scan,… It [email protected]£ out that am going to give birth to a baby girl!”my voice was hoarse when I said that.
” His families!… His families really despise me because of that!… And when they heard that I won’t be able to give birth anymore,”
” That arou-sedtheir anger for me the more!”I hiccu-ped.
” They started advising my husband to take a second wife!”
“Who is going to give you a heir to your company?… Or you just want your company to die with you whenever is time for you to crossover?”they had asked him.
“but him being my husband!.. My very own [email protected]!”
“He turned dear hear to their beseech.”
” I was devastated!”
” I keep hoping and praying the scan was a lie!”
“I went back to the hospital for more than one month just to recheck!… But all gave same results!”
“without thinking about my husband’s families,… We pretended as if it’s nothing!… My husband won’t allow me to go to work or even do any house chores”
“And gradually!”
“the ninth month [email protected]£!”
“When I saw my water broke, I went into a very [email protected] labor”
” My husband won’t allow any of our maid to t©uçh me!”
” He won’t even allow the driver to drive!”
” He carried me bridal style and drove the car himself to the hospital!”
“The nurses won’t allow him in!”
” I could remember the sad look on his face when they asked him to wait outside!”
” And then!”
” I gave birth to my baby!”
” My pretty little Oona!”
” She cried!”
” She really cried!”
” But I wasn’t so Happy!” I said sadly.
” I wasn’t happy a bit!”
” I thought a miracle would happened!”
” I strongly believed for it to happen!”
” But no!”
” She [email protected]£ out a girl!”
” And as if the heaven are in support of my expected miracle!”
” I heard the cry of another baby in the same ward am in!”
” A very poor looking woman just gave birth also!”
“and then!….”I couldn’t complete it because I broke down in an h0t tears session.
“And then,…I bribe-d the nurse!”
“I bribe-d her to exchange our babies!”
“I gave her a hvge sum of money!”
“She gave the poor woman a slee-ping pill and exchanged the babies!”
“I was happy because my husband was happy!”
” He danced that day!”
” He danced so well that even the nurses and doctors were holding their stomach.
“He was so happy that he got a heir!”
“A successor!”
” And so, I was happy too!…I was happy because am not going to be a pas-serby in my own husband’s house!”
“but I really took care of the poor woman!”
” She took me as a friend not knowing the crime I committed against her!”
” I asked her to name her Oona and she never declined!”
“although she doesn’t have a real home!..but at least she had a permanent place I could always see her then!”
” I would always go there with Dwayne!”
” But after five years,…my husband warned me not to go see her again!”
“He issued us a visa to travel out of the state!…with Dwayne also!”
” I [email protected]£ back,but couldn’t find her anymore!”
” My baby!”
“I looked and searched for them for months if not years!”
“So I gave up!”
” I…..gave up….I gave up on my baby!”I sobbe-d loudly.
” Forgive me plea-se!….Dwayne forgive me for depriving you of your parents!…for not allowing you to get your parental care!” I cried.
I looked up at him with tears eyes and his face was expressionless.
I felt a sharp pain shoot throu-gh my heart!.
A pain of guilty!.
A pain of not being the best mom to my daughter!.
A pain of depriving a poor baby boy from his mother!.
A countless pain am not so sure I would survive from!.
All I felt right now was anger!
Anger mixed with pain!.
But amidst it all is pity!.
I looked at sir Dwayne, and his face was expressionless.
Just staring at the woman who claimed to be my mom.
And now I un-derstand!. I un-derstand the reason Alex told me sir Dwayne said he got attached to us because of my SCENT!.
So he’s actually my childhood friend.
Very bad I couldn’t remember!.
But I also un-derstand this woman’s plight.
My Mom!.
So the person I thought was my mom was actually not my mom?
But sir Dwayne’s?
Oh God!
Mom was even ignorant of this!.
I thought as much!
Now I remembered!
She would sometimes call me Oona and whenever I ask whether that also my name, she would shake her head NO!.
She would say she’s sorry and that she just remembered her friend!.
So she’s actually my mom?
She neglected me to the street!
How I wish she knew how [email protected] living was on street!.
How disheartening it is!.
If no for sir Dwayne who changed our life a little bit this past few days!.
“That’s not fair!… That’s not fair!” I said trying my possible best to hold back my tears.
Sir Dwayne was just staring silently on God knows what. He stared for a few minutes and turned back heading outside without saying a thing!. Am very sure the pain am feeling now, would be nothing compared to his!.
“Dwayne?” I heard his mom called silently.
His voice is that low because of how [email protected] she has been sobbing since.
Without thinking twice, I followed after him. I can’t afford to see him hurt himself.
I got outside and saw him alre-ady opening his car door. I hasten my steps and opened the cars door too.
Thank God I used to peep at him whenever he wants to open the door.
I got it and settled on the seat besides the drivers seat. I knew he saw me entered but pretended as if he didn’t.
I don’t know where he’s heading to. But all I know is that, Anywhere he goes, I follow.
I can’t believe what I just heard!. I scoffed disbelieved.
Oh my!
I saw Dwayne went out without saying a thing.
And that po…I mean that….
Oh God!
What should I call her now?
I saw her followed after him. I can’t just comprehend what I just heard!.
I looked at Mrs Dwayne and she was still sitting down on the floor crying her eyes out. The beggar guy was just sitting on the dinning chair with mouth agape.
He’s even having a pot in front of him. I guess they were in the middle of eating when we [email protected]£ in.
What to do now!?
I slowly stepped outside. excusing myself.
What am I now to this family? Am very sure she won’t want me to marry his son anymore!
“Hmmm!” I smiled wickedly to myself.
Am going to go with my plan B.
Since the plan A didn’t work out,
Am going with plan B!.
