(Why is he so scared?)
By: Faith Lucky.
“Is she dumb?” Daniel asked and Molly spoke up immediately.
“She’s my new nanny” she said and the confusion on the lover boys faces increa-sed.
“New what?” Malcolm asked.
“Did mum really hire a new nanny?”
“Uh…g…good evening sirs” I greeted nervously with a bow.
Then I heard Alex scoff.
“is mum around?” Carl asked.
“No. But she’ll be back soon” Molly replied, fiddling with the toy she held.
“this has got to be a joke” Alex said and t©uçhed his forehead restlessly.
He threw his specs on the floor and sighed.
Then, he [email protected]£ up to me and that was the moment I developed goose bu-mps.
He was standing in front of me!
I took my eyes from the floor to look at him and my eyes ran into his sparkling eyes which were staring vacuously at me.
“Get out of here” he said icily and left, talking the right staircase.
Daniel brou-ght out his phone and started operating it and walked away.
Carl and Malcolm just shook their heads and also left.
I turned and looked at Molly immediately, my heart beating heavily.
“I told you he’d be upset” she said and shrugged and my dilemma increa-sed.
“I…am I really supposed to leave?” I asked, worried.
“Well, that’s what he said, right? But I’d suggest you just hang around and wait for mum. I’m sure she can talk to him” she replied.
I placed my palma together and sighed. I was so scared.
I hope Mrs Tristan gets back in time.
“Come on, nanny, let’s wait in your room. You wouldn’t want him to see you again” she said and I nodded and followed her to the room.
I was so anxious. Alex had really seemed angry when he saw me.
Will I be able to stay here?
I kept looking throu-gh the window, hoping Mrs Tristan gets back in time before Alex throws me out of the house.
After a while, Mrs Tristan returned.
Oh, thank goodness!
Molly suggested I stayed in the room while she went out and explained things to her.
So, she left while I remained in the room with my f!ngerscrossed.
I spent a long time in the room, waiting for a reply from Molly but I didn’t see her
So many horrible thoughts kept flashing throu-gh my mind.
Could it be possible Mrs Tristan has finally agreed to let me go?
Are they really going to s£nd me away?
I waited a little more time in the room until I felt I could wait no longer.
I nee-ded to see the condition of things for myself.
I left the room and slowly went downstairs. The only person I saw in the sitting room was just a house servant, dusting some items.
He just glanced at me and took his eyes back to what he was doing.
I took in a de-ep breath and looked at the right staircase and slowly approached it.
I got on it and started walking carefully, trying not to be noisy.
The staircase was a bit long and pretty too and when I finished climbing on it, I quietly went to where Alex’s room was.
I started approaching it and as I did, I could clearly hear his voice and that of his mum.
I st©pped and tired to listen it them.
“We’ve been over this, Alex” I heard Mrs Tristan say.
“You know how stressful looking after Molly is. And now I’ve finally gotten some one she likes, you want me to just s£nd her away?”
“I just don’t want any lady around me…”
“And why?” She cut him off.
“Talk to me Alex; why don’t you want any lady around you?”
I didn’t hear anything immediately.
“plea-se mum; just take her away from me” I heard Alex say and his voice had sounded tearful.
Oh, God! What could be wrong with him?
“I’m sorry Alex, but since you won’t open up to anyone, I don’t know how I can be of help” Mrs Tristan say and I quic-kly left the pas-sage, guessing she might come out of the room.
I went to another pas-sage and leaned on the wall.
Alex’s words repla-yed in my head:
“plea-se mum, just take her away from me”.
He had sounded bittered and scared.
What could the problem be?
whys he so scared of ladies now?
Or, could it be possible it was a result of the deaths of the girls he loved?
But, what could be the cause of their deaths?
What really happened to the loverboys?

(What does he have to say?)
By: Faith Lucky.
Mrs. Tristian had told me not to give a thought to what Alex said. But, she had warned me to avoid getting into trouble with him.
I can’t believe I’m being asked to stay away from my crush.
Mrs. Tristian had told me Molly was to take a glas-s of milk every night before going to be-d. So, I went into the kitchen to make her a glas-s of milk.
The kitchen was fabulous and almost looked like a supermarket. Everything was in tins, rows, cartons, packets and bags. They were all in bulk. There were about four [email protected] cookers in the kitchen, two ovens, microwave, and the whole place was sparkling neat.
I opened one of the refrigerators and my eyes beamed at what I saw. It was stocked to the brim with different kinds of fruits.
I took out an apple and ate from it. It was so cold and delicious while munching it. Just then, the door opened and one of the love boys walked in.
Oh, my gee!
It was Carl.
My hands shook and the apple fell to the floor. It [email protected]£ as a shock to me.
“Hey” He called as he walked in, and I quic-kly picked the apple from the floor but didn’t eat it.
‘Good… good evening sir’ I stuttered with a bow, and he chuckled.
He went to one of the refrigerators and brou-ght out a bottle of red wine. Then he opened another refrigerator and brou-ght some ice cubes and an empty glas-s cu-p. He kept them on the kitchen table and stood facing me.
He was young, very handsome and stylish too. His hair was dark and curly and he had pinkl-ips.
‘What are you doing here?’ he asked while pouring out wine from the bottle into the glas-s.
I gulped nervously.
‘I …I …’ I paused and looked around. It seemed I’ve forgotten what I [email protected]£ here to do.
‘I [email protected]£ to get a glas-s of milk for Uhm… Molly’ I replied and quic-kly went for an empty glas-s. I took a spoon as well and brou-ght down the tin of milk, but I was too nervous and it fell from my hand, but luckily it didn’t spill on the floor.
Surprisingly, Carl bent down and picked it up. Whaaat?
‘Hey, you don’t have to be twitchy around me, ok? I don’t eat people’ he said with a smiled as he returned the tin to me.
I just stared at him, gob sma-cked.
‘I’m not Alex’ he further said.
‘I’ve got no issues with ladies, I mean, just as long as you aren’t a commoner’ he added and win-ked at me, and I managed a nervous smile.
He looked back at his drink and put some ice cubes into the glas-s. After that, he returned the big bottle into the refrigerator.
‘Nighty – night’ he whispered and win-ked at me again as he finally left the kitchen with the glas-s of wine.
I heaved a sigh.
Wow! That was so close. I can’t believe he spoke so nicely to me.
I smiled and prepared the glas-s of milk, after that, I went with it to Molly’s room.
she was watching a movie when I went in. I handed it over to her; she collected it and drank from it.
I turned off the TV and got re-ady to tuck her to be-d when she was done with her milk.
‘Alex is mad at me’, she said as she [email protected] the be-d.
‘He wouldn’t talk to me anymore’.
I winced and looked at her.
‘Why?’ I asked.
‘Well, I broke our deal. He’d made me promise him I’ll never have a nanny’, she replied, and I scoffed.
‘Are you serious? So, the rumors are true then? You were really the one s£nding the nannies away? But, how come you developed interest in me?’, I asked and she shrugged.
‘I don’t know, I guess I just liked you. plea-se, nanny, can you sing me a song?’ she said and I rolled my eyes and nodded.
I paused and cleared my throat, and then I began singing a Barbie song.
🎧Now that I’ve seen the world around me
‘Now that the answers are all close
Old concerns behind me
Now adventures ma ………🎧
She smiled and closed her eyes as I sang along, and by the time I was done, she was alre-ady fast asleep.
Wow! What a quic-k sleep.
I smiled and covered her well with a duvet and turned off the bright light afterwards, leaving only the slee-ping light on, then I left the room.
When I got outside, I stood staring at Alex’s room which was adjacent to me. A soft song was pla-ying from there. Could it be him?
I drew closer and placed my ear on the door, trying to see if I could hear him doing anything. I smiled as I listened, but the only thing I could hear was the sound of the music pla-ying.
Oh, Alex! I wonder what he was doing. Could he be slee-ping, re-ading, showering or what?
I giggled and leaned closer to the door.
‘And what do you think you’re doing?’ I heard a familiar voice and quic-kly turned around to see Alex standing behind me.
What? I quic-kly left the door and stuttered for words. I thought he was in the room.
He was putting on a black trou-ser and a blue shi-t; he didn’t have any jewelry on him aside a gold earring on his left ear. Hisl-ips were still pink and I got to know they were natural and a cool fragrance [email protected]£ from him.
‘I …I’m sorry sir, I was just…’ I stuttered and just then, his phone rang, he sighed and picked the call.
‘Yes? … I know. I’ll s£nd it right away.’ He spoke dazily on the phone and walked into his room.
I looked at him as he closed the door and immediately I heaved a big sigh of relief.
Gosh! I thought he was in alre-ady.
I looked at the door and thought of drawing near again but I quic-kly snapped out of the thought and left for my own room.
I smiled happily as I [email protected] my be-d. Seeing Alex gave me so much joy, even though he was mean and cold to me.
I remembered all the time he stared at me. It was so beautiful. I wish he could get to like me.
I woke up early the next morning and prepared for school, so I’d also have time to dress molly up.
I went to her room afterwards and helped her bath and dress up.
Their uniform was a purple shi-t, tucked in a short flair Sk-irt and a pair of purple stockings with black sneakers.
I brushed and packed her hair in a ponytail and she looked so sweet.
‘Do the love boys come down for breakfast?’ I asked while packing her hair in front of the mirror.
‘Uh…sometimes; but notnot all the time- especially Alex” she replied and I smiled and nodded.
I wish Alex would come down today.
“Nanny, will you sing me more songs today?” She asked after a brief silence and I smiled at her.
“Sure. I’ll do that on our way to school” I replied and she nodded happily.
When we were done, I took her bag and left the room with her so we could go to the dining for breakfast.
But when we got outside her room, I met Alex standing outside his.
I developed goose bu-mps immediately.
He was on a call but rounded it up when he saw us.
He was putting on a white long sleeve with the two upper bu-ttons open, ex-posing his che-st a bit.
And his dark curly hair flopped across his eye.
“Good morning, Alex” molly greeted immediately he dropped the call.
“Yeah” he replied simply and t©uçh his forehead with two f!ngers.
“Uhm…g…good morning, sir” I greeted nervously with a bow but didn’t hear a reply.
“Can I have a word with you, Jeanne?” He said and I lifted my head to see him walking into his room.
This is a dream.
I looked at Molly and she was looking back at me.
Did Alex just ask to have a word with me in his room?
What could he possibly have in mind?
