🌺🌺🧸 Episode Twelve🌺🌺🧸
I was waiting for Donald and Clara to go for the dinner night so I can lock the doors and retire to bed.
It’s been a long day especially with Clara around.
I watched as she came out of Donald’s room dazzling and I felt a little bad for myself. I’ve never dressed like a real lady.
Then Donald came out and looked at Clara, I was expecting him to complement her beauty or cloth or anything instead he turned to me.
“Be my date Courtney” he said.
My heart stopped beating for a second.
“What?? Me??” I asked in surprise while Clara glared at me
“Yes, please be my date” he said more confidently.
“Ohmahgawd, I can’t” I said quickly.
Clara smiled triumphantly while Donald looked down defeatedly. Just to wipe the smile of Clara’s face, I looked at Donald and smiled so sweetly.
“On a second thought, I’ll be glad to be your date.”
“No you can’t. I’m his girlfriend not you.” Clara blurted out angrily.
I eyed her down” give me a minute, I’ll be right out” I said to Donald and entered an empty room.
“Omg!! Madam your jewelry is broken” I screamed. Just as I expected, Clara came running to the room she heard me scream.
Immediately she walked in fully into the room, I walked out quickly and locked her in. I can’t have her disrupting the peace of the house after we’ve gone.
“Umm…. Mister, I don’t have evening dress” I said to Donald, drowning Clara’s scream in my head.
“We’ll visit the boutique on our way and thank you for locking her up” he replied and led the way to his car for the night.
Donald stayed in the car and gave me his credit card while I entered the boutique.
When Courtney rejected to go with me, I felt dejected and began ways to put on with Clara’s attitude and not make a fool of myself then luck shone on me and she changed her mind. It took all of my will power not to smile happily.
I stopped in front of the boutique and gave her my credit card to get a dress and whatever it is that ladies need.
Approximately ten minutes later, she stepped out from the building looking like she came from another planet.
She wore a grey long fitting gown, a matching stilettos and purse.
The pearl earrings complimented her looks, making her face sharper and defned. Her blue eyes shone brightly and her wild chestnut hair was styled. She looked like she has just stepped out from a magazine.
“Is this cloth okay? She asked, unsure of herself.
“It’s perfect” I grinned, allowing myself to relax.
She nodded, pleased with my reply and entered the car.
As soon as our entrance was announced, all the set of eyes in the room turned to us. It’s obviously we arrived late.
After the formal greeting, I stood near a wall and watched the activities of other elites.
“Are you sure you don’t want to run away?” Courtney appeared by my side “it’s so boringggg and the women here are obsessed with the designer that made their clothes”
“Hmm” I said in response
“Heard there’s a beach around here” she persisted.
“Fine let’s go” I dropped my wine glass and drove us to the beach, the beach where Clara and I met.
When she got to the beach, she removed her shoes and left them in the car, walking barefoot on the beach sand.
The ocean was calm and there were barely anyone on the bitch.
We sat on the sand and stared at the ocean.
“Okay, who exactly is Clara? She comes here and you became a shadow of yourself?
“My ex fiancee” I replied
“Wtf, with all due respect, I can’t believe your ex has a hold on you.”
” You can’t understand, they can’t understand, no body can understand”
“Why don’t you try me”
I glanced at her and found her looking at intently and sincerely
“I loved her, Clara” I said quietly and stared into space
“I loved her, Clara” he said quietly and stared into space.
I was surprised he opened up, I thought he wasn’t going to say anything again after few minutes of silence buh he continued.
“She is my first love. It’s not easy getting rid of first love feelings.”
“On our wedding day, before our vows, mother came in and arrested Clara. The humiliation was too much that’s why hate her. She had the power to halt the wedding. I was mocked and being talked about for days.”
Oh so that’s what caused the bad blood between them “She knows her son, she knows you’re in love and wouldn’t listen to her. So I think she did the right thing”
“Yeah you’re right but I don’t want to admit it”
“After that, Clara was charged but there was any tangible evidence against her yet and that gave her the privilege to roam about. Then I was abducted”
I gasped out in surprise.
“Yes I was abducted and tortured physically and emotionally for weeks. Even my abductors look at me with mocking faces and labelled me love sick. I tried changing her, make her see the wrong in what she was doing, I didn’t care that I was being hurt too. And yes, Clara was the one that hired people to abduct me and she’s the one that tortured me”
“She was taking her anger out on me. She was angry mother saw through her facade. She attempted killing me twice, I only escaped by luck. I was given only water for a week, then fed little food once a day. I was shattered, she made sure of that. Looking for whom to blame for her attitude, I blamed mother and became detached from everyone except Flynn and Eva.”
I turned to him fully in such a way that we’re opposite each other and made eye contact.
“Do I have your permission to discipline her a little? Just this tiny” I brought my thumb and forefinger closer to demonstrate.
He looked like he was going to argue for a second. He closed his eyes and exhaled “you have it. I hate having her around but she wouldn’t go and I’m sure she has something up her sleeve again”
“Okay” I grinned
“And you can call me Donald. I’d prefer if you do, no arguments please.”
“Okay Donald, I’m ready to put some bitch in her place.”
