You don’t deserve her attention, just leave her alone. I’m sure she’d un-derstand now that she can no longer treat you like trash… Kendrick said and I re-lease her.
That was fabulous! I can’t believe you actually did that. OMG! I love how you put her in her place, Tessa said as we walked out of the [email protected]
I just nee-ded her to know her days of maltreating me is over now. I’ve got nothing to do with her family now, so I’m free to stand up for myself, I can’t tolerate any act of disrespect and bully from her again… I said
Still I’m so surprised and I’m sure they wouldn’t have recovered from the shocking experience by now. But how come she chased you out, what happened exactly? she asked
I was cleaning her room when I coincidentally [email protected]£ across a bottle in her drawer. I re-ad the information on the bottle, that was how I knew it’s what she poisoned my food with. I had to steal it and poisoned her food too, but I was so unfortunate to have been noticed.
Her mom was really pissed at me not even listening to my reason for doing that, all she did was call me names and throw me out of the house.
I know this would definitely be a stepping stone for me, I won’t suffer in vain… I narrated and sniffed back my tears.
I’m sorry about that, but are you still gonna be staying in the church? And what do you intend to do now that she’s st©pped being your sponso-rer?
I don’t know yet, but I think I’ll start searching for a job vacancy. I really want to conclude my secondary education… I replied sadly
How I wish I could be of help, but I happen to be a maid in a house too… She said and I patted her.
It’s okay dear! all these will be over oneday, I’m sure of that… I said
“Let’s meet at the garden, we nee-d to talk” I re-ad the message from Kendrick that popped on my screen.
“Tessa plea-se go ahead, I’ll join you soon. I nee-d to be somewhere”
What happened exactly and why didn’t you tell me about it when we talked yesterday? Kendrick asked as I settled down beside him
I didn’t wanna bother you with that, I know you might try to interfere and it might cause something else. I’m sorry for that… I answered
Fine! Tell me about it… He said and i narrated my ordeal to him
So you sle-pt in the church, oh no! I shouldn’t be talking to you right now. You’ve hurt me really bad… He said and stood up, but I held him back. “I’m sorry” I apologized
Fine! I’ll forgive you if you’d accept my offer of living with me… He said and my eyes wi-de-ned
You know we both can’t live together, we’re of opposite S-x it won’t be ideal for us to live together. What do you think people would say about us? I said
I have three different be-drooms, you’d be staying in anyone of your choice, and who cares about what people would say, weren’t they in support of Ashley when she did all she could to chase you out of her house?
It’s fine if you choose not to come over, but make sure you always stay safe. You might be struggling for survival, but your health and safety is really important.
“I love you what you did earlier, that’s very good of you, I nee-d to get going, we’ll talk later” he said
“Alright” I replied
I can see you’ve lost your job and your chance of studying in this school. Carlos said suddenly as I [email protected] throu-gh a corner in the hallway, thereby ma-king me scared
Mtcheeeew! I hissed. What do you want from me? I asked giving him a stern look.
Well! I have a job for you, I’d love to employ you as my personal maid at home, trust me I’ll pay you well. We have other maids but I feel you’ve been destined to be a maid in your life, you know about the job very well, so I’m certain you’ll do your job very well… He answered
You’re very stupid for st©pping me to tell me that. I said and he [email protected]£d my hand.
Did you just call me stupid, like you just insulted me? Oh wow! I can see you’ve got some nerves.
Ouch! He cried and re-leased his grip when I stood on my toes and hit my head on his nose. That’s what you get for trying to mess with me, I guess you all haven’t gotten the message I’ve been trying to [email protected] onto you. “I’m no longer the Stephanie you used to bully” I said and gave him a kick on his groin before walking away.
I was on my way to the church when I sighted the person I never expected to come across again in my life which is the husband of the woman I grew up with who made attempts to [email protected]£ me few years back.
wow! Look who’s grown up really well. He said as he walked up to me.
“Good afternoon sir” I greeted giving him a stern look
Afternoon, I can see you’ve become more beautiful. So you’ve finally made it in life, this is the uniform of the rich kids school… He said
“Have a nice day sir” I said trying to ignore him.
I walked away, Hoping he wouldn’t follow me and he didn’t.
I got to the church and changed my clothes. I brou-ght out my phone to start searching for the jobs I could do.
So you actually live in a church” I heard someone say and I flin-ched.
“Oh no! Not again” I muttered out of frustration.
If you hadn’t ran away back then, I’m sure your life would’ve turned to a very plea-sant one. All I nee-ded to do was have a taste of you and I can allow you live peacefully in my house. Can’t you see how pretty you are? You’re so irresistible… He said
I could take you back to my house and give you the plea-sant life you’ve always wanted, just promise me you’re gonna give me what I want. He said
I can’t believe you still remain the Casanova you once were, I wonder how your wife has been coping with you, you saw me again for the first time in years and here you are blurting out nons-en-se. You’re a total disgrace to fatherhood… I said and stood up from where I was sitting.
Come back here, where do you think you’re going? He said and pu-ll-ed me back.
He raised my hand up and landed a h0t [email protected] on his face.
How dare you!!! He yelled and tried tou-ching me but was st©pped by Kendrick who entered.
He didn’t say a word to anyone, all he did was pack my belongings out of the church.
How did you know where I am? I asked as he [email protected]£ back inside the church.
He ignored me and carried me on his shoulder instead and went out of the church leaving the dumb man alone.
Huh? I muttered as he lifted me like I was a kid.
He put me in his car and locked the door instantly.
Kendrick why are you doing this, and how did you find where I’m staying out? I asked
I’ll tell you later but plea-se keep quiet for now, I don’t like it when I’m been questioned… He said sternly and drove off.
I looked back and saw the stupid man staring at the car as it zoom off. OMG! that was so close… I muttered and heaved a sigh of relief.
Wow! You’ve got a nice house, how come you’re able to build and maintain this big place all by yourself? I asked and he only stared at me.
“Well! If that’s a thank you for saving me coming from you, then I’d gladly say you’re welcome” he said and left for the couch.
I’m really sorry, pardon my manners. Thank you so much for coming just in time, that man is just too mean and devilish. I’m sorry for not thanking you first… I apologized and he sighed
You’re forgiven, go choose your room and settle down before coming back to me… He said and directed his gaze at the TV screen.
Alright sir! I said and left. I choose the one that’s a bit far to his own. I smiled as I examined the work I did in the room.
I’m here, so what’s good? Wait! Have you eaten? I asked as I got to him
I haven’t, go prepare something for us to eat, there are foodstuffs in the kitchen… He replied
“Alright! I’ll be back soon” I said and left the sitting room.
So how is the food? I asked as we started eating.
“It’s tasteless, but I’d be glad if I could have some more” he replied and I scoffed
You’re not serious, I just hope you’re not been sarcastic… I said pla-yfully, just then message popped up on my phone screen.
Well! the meal is delicious and sumptuous. I hope you can make this for me always, but plea-se make sure you cook more portion next time… He said
“I found a job vacancy for you” I re-ad out the message s£nt by Tessa.
OMG! I screamed in excitement and placed a call across her immediately
What’s wrong? Wait! So you weren’t paying attention to what I was saying… He said but I asked him to remain silent.
Hey! What’s up girl, I got your message just now. Tell me about it plea-se… I said to her as the call connected
It’s a nanny job. All you nee-d is to babysit a seven year old boy… She said
Wow! That’s simple, how much is the pay and where is the house address? I asked eagerly
I’ll forward it to you now, we’ll talk about it tomorrow at school. You really nee-d to go there on time before they employ someone else… She said
Of course I will go there on time, I could go there right now. I’m in dire nee-d of a job, I have nothing to rely on. Thank you so much for this, I’m really grateful. You just made my day a more happy one… I said
So she’s found a job for you and that’s why you ignored me, right? Kendrick said feigning anger.
Awwn! You know how much I nee-d it, I was over excited when I re-ad the message. I’m sorry, okay? I apologized
It’s okay lil sis, I can’t possibly get mad at you… He said and patted my head like a real elder brother.
Wow! This house is indeed big. I’m sure Ashley will be enticed by this and will un-derstand the fact that they’re not the only rich one in the society… I said to Kendrick as we both stood in front of the exquisite building I’m to apply a job in.
That’s because she’s immature and ignorant. Let’s just go in and do what we [email protected]£ here for… He said
Excuse me sir, we’re here to see the owner of this house… I said to the security guard we met at the gate it the house.
And why do you nee-d to see her? He asked
“Oh! It’s a lady that owns the place” i thought. Erm… Actually, I’m the one here to see her, I heard she’s looking for a nanny, I’m here to apply for the job… I replied
Why do you l… Oh! Never mind, just come in. Wait here while I go notify her of your pres£nce… He said as he kept gawking at me.
What’s wrong with him? i whispered to Kendrick but he pushed me in, instead and closed the gate.
“I’ll be waiting in the car” he whispered back and I sneered at him.
“Miss! You can go in now, just walk straight down and enter throu-gh the front door” He said.
I pressed the door bell but didn’t get a response. I was about knocking the door when I saw a little boy open the door.
Wow! I guess this is the person I’m here to babysit. But how come he’s so cute! I thought as is stood there admiring him.
I opened the door and met a woman sitting on a couch that’s backing the entrance with the boy sitting beside opposite her staring at me in a suspicious way.
“Good afternoon ma’am” I greeted, and it was then she turned to me slowly
Oh! Good afternoon, pardon my manners. I was just busy with some business trans… She was saying while her face was still glued to the [email protected]©p before her. But she st©pped talking when she sighted me.
My eyes wi-de-ned as I saw her too and I batted my lashes repeatedly,
Mom! Who is she? the boy asked also staring at me.
She stood up from the couch and walked up to me, while I stepped back as she moved closer to me.
Stephanie? She called
who is the woman? 🤔
