A Wife For
( The girl in my dreams)
” Can you plea-se cancel that occasion or better still that of me picking a wife Dad?”
I said to him who pas-sed me a glare. I am not re-ady, I can’t pick anyone from those desperate maidens…
Lots of things is creating hvge fear in me.
What if A doesn’t show up on that day?
I will have to pick someone that’s not her?
” That’s not happening Son, you are the crown prince and my heir. I nee-d you to get married Ryan, you are not getting any younger ” he snapped.
” I un-derstand Dad but I can’t just pick someone I don’t love to spend the rest of my life with, how will the marriage end?”
” It’s a must that you will pick a wife on the yearly royal occasion, I will cancel it only if you bring home a wife before then. No further discussion on this ”
He said with finality walking away from his chamber.
” Dad ” he waved his hands in the air dismissing me.
I sighed running my hand throu-gh my hair. I nee-d to find A.
I seriously nee-d to! Knowing that she truly exists brings me nothing but joy.
I have to go to the pizza shop, just maybe, I will find her there this time around.
I c@m£ out of the car and my chauffeur closed the door.
” Take the car back home, I will call you to come pick me later ” I said to him
He stared at me for a while before nodding.
I let him drove me here because of that and he can’t question my order can he?
” yes my prince ” he bowed entering into the car .
I breathed out before walking away to the shop.
What if I find her there? What do I do? Will I be able to talk to her?
” My prince ”
Her mum called smiling wi-dely at me..
My A looks so much like her, the exact way she is in my dreams.
” Good afternoon ma’am ” I greeted politely while bowing slightly in respect.
She’s not here today too? Gosh!
” Afternoon my prince, you are welcome ”
She replies going towards the oven.
I dressed casually today with no royalty attached.
I just wish to be like everyone out there. I like the fact that I am royalty but I don’t like the respect I am having.
Even the old respects me so much!
” You c@m£ for some pizzas?”
I shook my head at her question and she frowned.
” No ma’am, I c@m£ to help you with some works. Since A… Uhhm I mean Alyssa, since she’s always out, I decided to come help you ”
The frown on her face didn’t go but de-epened ! What? Did I say something bad?
” how did you know her?”
I didn’t see that coming! I smiled nervously at her .
” Uhm, I think I heard you calling her name the last time I c@m£ here ”
Her mouth formed an ‘ O ‘
” That girl is something else ”
She muttered un-der her breathe but I heard that.
” I would have loved it if you help me but you can’t my prince, you are royalty, what will the people say? The crown prince seen at the pizza shop ma-king pizza?”
Because I am royalty I just can’t do what others simply do? That’s unfair you know.
I won’t let her win, I have to stay here till A returns at least.
” You don’t have to worry about that, it’s no crime helping you right?” I asked.
” No my prince ”
” It’s fine if you call me Ryan ma’am, I am more of a Son to you and no objection, I am helping you. You can relax, I can make pizza that will be as good as yours ”
I gently held her hand taking her from the oven and I took over while she stared at me with mouth opened.
Yeah! It’s time to displ@ymy skills!
” My pr…. Ryan, you can’t be doing this ”
” Don’t worry ” I pushed her .
A smile crept on her face and that warmed my heart.
I derive joy in seeing others happy!
I have always had pas-sion for cooking and preparing any kind of food but me being a prince didn’t give me much opportunity to do that myself.
; Zoey’s POV
” How did it go?” Tessa my best friend asked
I wasn’t joking when I say Prince Ryan likes me. Of course he has to because I am the only female friend he’s ever gotten.
” It went well Tessa, you nee-d to have seen how happy he was to see me. He was all over me ”
I dramatised !
He told me he missed me, we went for a tour in the palace even if I know everywhere.
Since it’s with Prince Ryan, I can go a thousand times.
” That’s a credit, my best friend will become a queen and I will have free access to the palace ” she yelled ma-king me chuckle
” Yeah! I will have Prince Ryan to myself soon, I know he’s going to choose me as his bride ” I said proudly fli-pping my hair.
I mean he can’t choose any girl like that, a girl he doesn’t know I mean.
I have 95% chance of him choosing me, I am certain about that.
I just can’t wait to have the power, to have the whole kingdom un-der me .
I will do and undo, I will control anyone and everyone!
I just can’t wait to become royalty and shove it in princess Emily’s face that I happened to be her brother’s wife.
I don’t just get why she doesn’t like me a bit but I don’t care though.
🥞 Alyssa 🥞
I walked hastily towards my bike. I have a lot of delivery to do and I don’t want Ama nagging at me.
I was almost at my bike when someone bu-mped into me.
When I was about falling my bu-tt on the floor, two arms held me firmly ma-king me stand still.
My eyes snapped up to see a beautiful eyes staring into mine .
He looks so handsome tall and seemingly rich.
With small pinkl-ips, smooth face, de-ep dimples , straight.. ..ugh!
I snapped out of my trance and pushed him away.
” I…I. am sorry, I didn’t see you coming my way ”
I scoffed glaring at him.
” How will you see me when you were busy staring at your goddamn phone ” I hissed loudly.
” I am sorry okay ”
” Hold it ”
I rolled my eyes walking away.
What now huh?
” Can we be friends?”
” I don’t make friends with strangers ”
” Okay, can you at least give me your number plea-se?”
I paused and turned back to look at him. I walked very closer to him and crossed my arms.
” No Mister ”
I climbe-d my bike and drove off leaving him standing right there.
He shouldn’t try stalking me else, I will design his handsome face.
Did I even have a phone?
My next delivery is not far from the shop so I will just go before I come to rest.
I c@m£ down from my bike entering into the shop when I met Lucas!
Lawd! I am not re-ady for any fight, not with Ama few feet away from me .
I could see a sm-irk on his face.
I took another direction and he stood in my front blocking my way in.
” What’s this again Lucas? ”
” Nothing, can’t I come to see a friend?” He shrugged and I scoffed.
” The last time I checked, we aren’t friends so leave my way ”
” Chill Alyssa or are you afraid ?”
I hissed pushing him out of my way when he gr@bb£d me from behind and I loosed balance falling down on the floor.
That didn’t just happened did it?
Before I could stand on my feet , he hit me real ha-rd on my stomach.
Ouch ! Ouch! That hurts!
His sm-irk wi-de-ned !
Anger rushed into my vein kicking him with my leg while on the floor.
He stumbled falling with his face k!ss!ngthe ha-rd floor which gave me the opportunity to stand on my feet.
I don’t just go about fighting, they are always bringing out the stubborn p@rt of me .
I turned him on the floor landing a punch on his face and mouth as blood oose out immediately.
I hit him continuously for about five minutes.
” Ouch! Alyssa! You are hurting me ”
It’s my time to sm-irk.
I sat on his th*gh gr-abbing his d*”k pressing it real well which led him whimpering in pain .
With my one hand, I brou-ght out a rope and tied his both hands to the back of his head.
I sl@pped him, kicked him..
His mouth was bleeding, his head and like wise his b©dy.
My world st©pped when I heard Ama’s voice….
” Did you want to kill him Alyssa?” She skrie-ked running towards me.
I sprang on my feet taking to my heels when my eyes caught some pair of hazel eyes staring at me with shock written all over him..
Oh my God! Prince Ryan
Oh my God! Prince Ryan?
Don’t tell me he has seen me fighting! What am I even saying? Of course he did.
Why did he have to come this minute?
I stared nervously at him feeling guilty as he stood frozen at the door like I just murdered someone.
That very moment,I feel like explaining myself to him that it wasn’t what he saw.
I bowed my head as his intense gaze burn throu-gh my skin.
I heard a loud sl@p on my face and I turned to see Ama beside me!
Holy Molly! I totally forgot I was running from her.
Before I could run, she got hold of my hand giving me another sl@p on my right cheek.
” Ama plea-se ” I pleaded almost in tears.
My cheeks hurt and it seems she’s not done with me.
” Did you see what you did to him Alyssa? What is wrong with you?”
She sl@pped my back and I was able to free myself from her ti-ght grip.
I took to my heels and unfortunately, my legs took me to the prince.
I guess he’s the only one that can save me right now.
Forgetting the shock on his face, I ran clutching very ti-ght to him.
It’s not my fault I always fight, if they st©p looking for my troubles, we will stay in peace.
Ama made some boys take Lucas to the hospital and she c@m£ after me again.
” I..I..am sorry plea-se, I am sorry Ama ”
I hid behind the prince as tears flows down freely.
Prince Ryan turned to me and I hastily bowed my head.
” Get away from there Alyssa, come down here ” she snapped angrily
” It’s okay ma’am, beating her up wouldn’t solve a thing ”
The most calmest voice I have ever heard said.
He spoke with a cool and breathtaking voice.
His voice is husky, matured and angelic.
” She wants to kill me Ryan, there is no single day she won’t fight. No single day someone won’t end in the hospital in her name ”
Mum said in a sober mood but did she just call him Ryan?
Okay! What’s the relationsh!pbetween them and did she have to add to my shame by disgracing me in front of him?
Even if I am not scared of Prince Ryan, not anyone except Ama, I have an atom of shame in me .
I fidget with my f!ngersstaring down at my legs.
” Uhmm, you just go inside and rest. Forgive her plea-se and I as-sure you she won’t fight again ”
Mum pas-sed me a deadly glare that can kill me instantly but I didn’t die though .
” She won’t change, she’s been like this since the last time I can remember”
I am sorry Ama, it’s not my fault!
” Some customers are coming in, why don’t you attend to them while I take her somewhere to have a word with her?”
Someone should pinch me! I seriously nee-d to wake up from this dream
Prince Ryan? Take me out to have a what?
Who saw my pieces? I have melted alre-ady
Ava, Maggie and Natalie sat next to me while Mela sat opposite us l!çk!ng her ice cream as we stared curiously at her and as usual, Emily is in her room.
I don’t get why she’s always a loner! We’ve tried all we could to be the best sisters to her but she’s just her.
” Are you going to keep us waiting this way or I should take back my bowl of ice cream?” Ava said to Mela.
She giggled rolling her eyes.
” Well, you know brother Ryan picked me from school today” she paused searching our eyes.
” We know right so what?” Natalie sh!pped in.
” We c@m£ across a Pizza shop and I pleaded with him to let me get some and he agreed ”
” He gave me some money, there I met a beautiful lady with her heart as pure as gold and her spirit as free as the bird ”
She paused and grinning.
” What does this have to do Ryan?” Maggie asked.
” Calm down big sis, I am still talking right?” She replied calmly.
Mela is the last born but she behaves more matured than any of us.
” When I entered into the pizza shop, I met her there and that instant, I liked her because she was just like me. She even gave me those pizzas for free ”
” When I was coming back into the car, I met the prince who began questioning me about her. Alyssa ”
” The way he stares at her direction speaks something else, I think he likes her ”
” Could you believe he stylishly went in search of her?”
She giggled again.
Alyssa? Does that mean Ryan has found his amor?
She will be married into this palace and we will become seven sisters and friends!
” Is she a delivery girl or what?” I asked
” Sort of, her mum own the shop ”
” Perfect! You still know the shop right? ” Ava asked
” Sure sis ”
” We are going to see her girls ”
🥞 Alyssa 🥞
First time in my entire life I am entering into a luxurious car and it’s not just a car but a royal car!
A freaking royal car !
Prince Ryan called his driver and he c@m£ almost immediately as if he was waiting by the road side.
Right now, in the same car with Prince Ryan!
What I have never for once in my life dreamt about!
I could feel his gaze on me and I tried as much as possible not to look his way fantasising about the car.
It feels like heaven! Some fresh air coming from a direction I don’t know.
The tinted windows, sparkling seats, everything!
I don’t wish to leave this car again, I might end up slee-ping on this seat if we spend thirty more minutes here.
My thought was caught short when the car c@m£ to an halt.
Does it have to be now?
I waited patiently till his driver opened the car door for me.
I don’t want to disgrace myself here again !
Wow! Where’s this place? When did I become an opportunist?
” Welcome to Eland h0tel Prince Ryan, your reservation is this way ”
Wow! This place is extremely beautiful! And I have been in this city for all the twenty three years of my life.
Not even the name have I heard before! Well, perks of not being rich .
I am very certain that even my forefather won’t be able to pay for a single meal here.
We were directed to a VIP seats where few people were .
” What’s your order ma’am ”
I picked the menu and what? Everything was written in French.
Is it owned by a French person?
Seeing how I was struggling with the menu, prince Ryan collected it and ordered whatsoever.
Gosh I feel like a princess !
He’s the first Prince that has ever valued his subject
Some ladies stared dreamingly at him while some throw daggers at me and I sat with my head up high!
It’s not easy being sp©tted with the prince.
” So tell me Alyssa, why did you beat up that boy?”
I stared at hisl-ips as he spoke, he’s putting on a simple dress as usual .
My eyes traveled to his n£¢k and there was a n£¢klace that my entire generation will never be able to afford.
A gold n£¢klace!
An expensive wrist watch was on his left wrist glistering even in the day time.
Three rings on his hand and he was turning that on his middle f!nger.
Why didn’t I check him earlier?
Without thinking twice, you will know he’s royalty.
Everything about him screams royalty and wealth.
He looks so cute , S-xy and handsome.
” Alyssa?” He called and chuckled.
God! Why do I keep on disgracing myself huh?
He caught me checking him out right?
