(What happened to her?)
We all went to the dining and had breakfast together.
Thank goodness Annabel returned to her senses by apologizing. I was already beginning to get mad at her.
While we were eating, dad returned an urgent call that warranted him leaving the house immediately.
Someone he knew he was dead – Minister Peters.
He was murdered the previous night with his family.
God! What is happening?
Yesterday, it was Senator Sigmund. And today, it’s Minister Peters. All murdered with their families. Why all these?
I shook my head in agony and after eating, my sisters and I went upstairs to get ready for work.
I turned from left to right in front of the mirror to make sure I was good to go.
Then, I took my designers bag from the bed and walked out of the room.
I got to the other room and decided to knock and see if they were done.
“Hey, sisters?” Are you done?” I asked from outside after knocking.
I heard them reply
“Alright, then. I’ll wait downstairs” I said and left, taking the stairs.
I got to the sitting room and surprisingly, found a handsome fellow entering into the house.
Renee’s prince charming.
I put up a smile on my face as I went to meet him.
“Hi Royce” I beamed.
“Hey, Annabel. Wats up?” He asked.
“I’m fine, dear. And you?”
“Yeah – I’m good. I heard you went missing. Sorry, I couldn’t make out time to come see you. I’ve been so…”
“Oh, please. It’s fine. I understand. After all, I’m okay now”,I said and twirled around for him to view, making he chuckle.
“Okay. Um…I’m here to see Renee. Is she still upstairs?” He asked.
By this time, I was standing very close to him.
“Yes, Royce. She’s upstairs”, I replied calmly and touched his hair.
“Uh…okay” he cringed and moved back a bit.
“Could you tell her I’m here, please?”
I smiled and held the collars of his shirt.
“I love your tie” I muttered as I arranged his collars.
His face crumpled up immediately.
“Yeah…thanks” he drew his reply.
“And…I love your lips” I added in a whisper and his brows furrowed immediately.
A grin crept into my face.
“Royce?” I heard someone call from behind and slowly turned to see Renee standing on the stairs.
She looked stunned.
“Hi, sis” I smiled.
“What is going on here?” She asked and Royce moved away from me.immediately.
“Nothing, love. Trust me. I was just dressing your boyfriend’s shirt” I winked at her and started towards the door.
“And that reminds me” I said when I had opened the door.
“Tell Vanessa and Esther that I’ll be going for a friend’s party after school. So, you guys shouldn’t panic when I’m late” I added and finally walked out the door.
So sorry, it’s late. I’ve been really busy. But, I’ll start updating on time from now on 🤞
So, how was this?
