🌺🌺🧸 Final episode🌺🌺🧸
I watched helplessly as the policemen took Div away.
“I’ll be okay and probably be back in the night” he said as they took him away but that didn’t alleviate my worry.
Killing Simon was self defense, the police should know that.
Seeing I wasn’t convinced “what about bringing your flowers this night?”
I smiled and nodded in agreement.
After he left with the police, an ambulance came to carry Simon’s corpses and I was asked to vacate the room without cleaning as they need evidence.
I packed my belongings and moved them to Donald’s room.
I sat on his bed, reminiscing. Simon is really dead, my nightmare is gone. It still felt surreal.
Donald entered and sat quietly beside me.
“I’m so sorry Nora, I’m sorry I didn’t believe you” he pleaded.
I looked at him and placed my hands on his, “If I were you, I wouldn’t have believed a stranger over my blood too so I’m not angry.”
He stared at me as if he couldn’t believe what he was wearing and pulled me into a hug. I let myself be hugged and relax in his embrace. It’s finally over, we conquered our nightmares.
“Know the first thought that crossed my mind when I saw you?” He asked, his chin resting on my head.
“Who’s this fierce beautiful petite lady with wild chestnut hair who isn’t afraid of my cold aura and broke through, now I have a warm heart willing to love.”
“What do you think when you see now, after you know, everything?” I asked
“Wow, my bossy maid is one hell of a strong woman, beautiful and fierce at the same time, selfless too. She’s one of the people I hold dear to my heart now.”
I blushed, surprised someone still thinks of me as beautiful.
“What contract you signed with mother ends today, I’ll give you the money”
My heart plummeted down, I wanted the money for college so I can’t rent an apartment till I apply.
“I want to work for my money” I argued
“No, you’ve worked enough. I’m going to sponsor you to college and you can always consider this place as home”
I wanted to raise my head and look at him.
He pressed my head back against his chest “No don’t look at me”
“Thank you” I said with so much sincerity.
“You deserve it CounterKnee”
” Sorry to break you guys up, but what the heck happened?” Another voice said
“Mum” Donald cried out, not masking the surprise in his voice.
“I knew something was up with that Uncle of yours. I never liked him.” Mum said after I narrated everything to her.
“I still can’t believe he tried to kill me and Courtney.”
“I haven’t told your father about it. You mentioned Div just now?”
“Yeah, he’s the one that helped”
“A drug Lord? Courtney got herself involved with a drug Lord? Is that why the police man saluted to him”
“Maybe….. I’ll head over to the police station. They should wrap up the case, we aren’t making any charges. He’s dead, we don’t need to mention his case in court.”
I shrugged and eyed mother who was staring at me with mischief.
I went over and hugged her tightly.
“About Courtney” mum started.
“Don’t even go there mum….. don’t” I disengaged from the hug and flashed her a grin then went to the kitchen where I met Flynn and Eva cooking. It was a sight to behold.
“We’re sorry, we came as soon as we heard” Eva said apologetically.
“C’mon Flynn” I said to an upset Flynn
He looked at me with glazed eyes “you both would have died if help hadn’t come” his lower lips trembled.
I moved closer to him and enveloped him. I’m here, Courtney is upstairs, we are safe and that’s what matters.
It’s seven in the evening and everyone is still eating and drinking.
I came outside to wait for Div since he said he’ll be back in the evening.
“Waiting for someone?” A voice asked beside me.
“Div!” I screamed enthusiastically
“I told you I’ll be back pumpkin” he smiled and gave me a bouquet of Lily flowers.
“Thank you for everything”
“You don’t have to thank me.” He replied and sat beside me, staring up at the stars.
“My parents are up there smiling at me”
“Same as my sister” he smiled sadly.
“Your sister?” I asked
He nodded sadly “what do you think about traveling the world with me?”
“Huh?” I was taken aback “um…. I….college” I stuttered embarrassingly
“Sure” he pinched my cheeks “you’ll go to college, I’ll sponsor all your education and I’ll wait for you.”
“You can give me your answer later” he smiled softly “I love your wild chestnut hair.”
I nodded gratefully and looked up at the sky with my head on his shoulder.
