(Getting her pregnant)
I sat on the bed quietly watching my cousin – Lucy stumble over her own clothes.
“We’re going to be late Ivy!” She groused angrily at me.
“Why are you yelling so much? Am already done dressing up unlike you who wants to out dress even the celebrant’s daughter” I said staring at her sardonically.
“So you’re mocking me?” She asked with the most stupid look on her face.
I rolled my eyes taking my eyes to the television in her room.
“You see, the gathering has already started” I stated and she screamed.
“What do I do ivy???” She asked panicking.
I sighed and went to her picking up a blue dress on the floor.
I searched the room with my eyes and caught a black jacket on the couch. I got a hold of it and passed it to the desperate teenager beside me.
“Put this one. Am sure they’d be better for tonight” I said and she twitched batting her lashes at me.
“You sure?” She asked and I stared down at her p*nt and b*a.
“Am f**king sure Lucy!” I grumbled and she took them from me.
I smiled and began picking up her clothes lying around on the floor.
Yes…this looks strange.
Though my aunt and uncle are the bane of my life – trying to make my life miserable, Am in good terms with their daughter.
We have no reason to pick fights and we’re the best of friends but most times, her mother does all she can to make her hate me.
Can you believe that??
“Am done…uh…how do I look?” She asked and I gasped.
“You look stunning!” I remarked and she leaped.
“What the hell is keeping you both up there?!!!” We heard her father yell and we quickly grabbed our purses running downstairs.
I don’t know what Chloe’s expression would be when she finds out I was invited to her father’s birthday party.
My uncle gained my father’s wealth so he has connections with other billionaires.
“Brandon?” I muttered as he stared at me with beady eyes.
“Hey…” He paused and sent an hand to the back of his head rubbing it nervously.
What the heck!???
“Hey? How can you just step into my room without knocking?
Have you lost it?” I asked furiously and he made a shocked stare.
“Will you calm down? I didn’t want to waste another minute at the hallway cause your dad might show up” He revealed and I scoffed.
“So, you can actually get scared, huh?” I asked folding my hands.
“You couldn’t call back Brandon…Why??” I wavered getting upset.
“I was occupied Chloe. I was busy…”
I raised my hand up signalling him to stop talking.
For real, I’ve heard enough!
“Yeah…whatever. Now what do you want?” I asked taking a deep breath.
“I came to explain things to you” He paused and took a step close.
“The burdens are no longer there as it was Chloe and honestly, I never stopped thinking about you and that’s the reason I did everything I could to meet you here where it would be private”.
I rolled my eyes with a scoff.
“You’ve got to be kidding me. It took you a month and more to realize this, huh? Would a call kill you Brandon?!!” I half yelled and he took a deep sigh.
“I was scared to face you after…the attempted rape incident” He said and muttered the last part.
He paused the moment a knock came on the door and our eyes drifted to it.
“Come in” I said ignoring Brandon’s reaction.
The door opened and Ciara walked in together with Anna.
They froze the moment their eyes met Brandon’s.
“Are we missing something?” Anna asked and I lowered my gaze to the floor feeling so despondent.
“I’ll be downstairs” I heard his deep voice hover around me before his footsteps followed.
The jerk is gone.
“Chloe, are you okay?” Ciara asked worriedly rushing to me.
I raised my head up and bit my lower lip.
“Yeah…Am fine” I replied licking my lips.
How can I forget the most important part of my dress up?
I scurried to the dressing table and took the lip gloss. I applied it on my lips while the girls stared at me with a facial expression.
“Actually, we came to escorts you to the party ground. Everyone is eagerly waiting to see your epic appearance!” Ciara exclaimed excitedly.
Hmm. So it’s really time to make my entrance.
And just now I recalled that Brandon didn’t say anything about my dress.
He’s a true jerk.
I walked into the party ground with Anna and Ciara behind me.
Different flashes of bright light from cameras surrounded me.
Am sure the people whom are shooting the event live were recording too.
Everyone’s eyes were on me as I ambled towards them. I posed for the cameras at intervals so they’d get my good side.
A girl rushed to me with a pen and paper to get my autograph.
This I do best.
I took it from her and drew my signature. She smiled and I stepped into the party properly.
The spotlight had gone off and there was not so much attention any longer.
It’s not easy to walk like a princess and with different wealthy people watching like they’d swallow me.
Lots of people were seated on their tables according to the invitation of course.
A waiter walked to us and we took a glass of wine each.
I really just wanted to sit down.
Seeing Brandon tonight got me moody and less exuberant like I was a while ago.
There was a table set for dad and I but I’d rather stick around with Anna and Ciara till he’s been ushered in.
“Chloe, is it me or has that guy been staring at yoi like forever now?” Ciara whispered and I stared at the direction she was looking at.
Oh my God!
I felt a sharp leap in my heart and I bit my lower lip.
I looked at who was right near him but not too close…it was Jace!
Kyle was also there.
Who do I go to?
I turned my back and walked back to the house feeling confused and insane.
I bumped into someone on my way in and I gasped.
Who could be so clumsy?
I lifted my face to see…Ivy?
Like..what’s she doing here?
“Chloe…Hi” She said with smiles.
“Hey Ivy. How come you were invited?” I asked and she lowered her gaze to the floor and smiled.
“My uncle…He was invited” She replied and there’s no doubt that she sounded sad.
“You live with your uncle and you’re wealthy enough to get an invite?” I asked astonished.
I mean, who would think Ivy who dresses in rags could have an uncle for a billionaire?
This is preposterous!
“Y…yes, it’s a long story” she said and I arched my brows.
“Can’t you share this long story of yours?” I asked and she sighed.
“I lost my wealthy parents and their wealth was given to my aunt and uncle to take care of till I ace my courses. A stupid order from the court” she stated going ballistic.
“What sort of judgment is that?…so unfair. You’d have to pass your courses before you inherit what’s yours?”.
“Yeah…but that seems to be impossible since those couples wants to ruin my life. They bombard me with chores even three people together can’t accomplish in a day.
“That’s the reason I needed money. To buy personal things I needed for myself”.
She wiped off the tears that had rested on her cheeks.
“Don’t worry Ivy. Am going to help you with your studies. I’ll tell you more when we’d meet at school, alright?” I stated and she smiled out more tears.
“Really? Thank you so much Chloe. You’re the best!” She said and hugged me.
She unlocked immediately and I nodded.
“You’re welcome” I said walking into the house fully.
I was shocked beyond words after Chloe promised to be of help.
I looked at the gold stone in my palm.
I stole it from Mr Adam’s office with the idea of selling it.
I have to return this.
Chloe have been very kind to me and stealing from her would be stabbing her on the back.
I turned to go back into the house when I met her driver coming to me.
The one with the brown eyes.
He looked so neat and handsome in his tux and you can almost imagine that he’s a model.
He got to where I was and I batted my lashew stepping aside so he could walk by
“You’re that little thief, right?” He asked as he took my wrist.
He loosened my hand and my fingers surrendered the gold stone it was harboring.
He smirked as he took it and let go of my wrist.
“you have no fear to steal from Mr Adam even though today’s his birthday, huh?” He asked and my eyes welled up again.
“Am sorry. I was just about to return it…I swear!” I wavered and he looked away.
“I’ll return it on one condition…you stop stealing cause next time I catch you, I’ll cut off that same hand you use to eat” He threatened and I sobbed.
“Now go” he stated icily and I took to my heels going back to the party place.
After few minutes, dad and I made our grand entrance to the party ground and there was more ovation and attention there was when I stepped in.
We were escorted to our table and we settled down.
The emcee took over starting with mentioning of special and VIP guests.
Afterwards, dad’s personal assistant read his biography and everywhere was silent as his stories were captivating and inspiring .
I stood before the booth of the car handing out the weapons to the men.
We were just four on the job.
We had the masks that the Sinners gang always wore so we won’t get caught – rather, they would be blamed.
I took my own gun and shut the booth of the car.
“Whoever gets a good shot at her should go for it cause we have just two hours to complete this mission and if we fail, boss would kill us so leave no mistakes” I enthused and they set out hiding their weapons.
I fixed mine in my pants before going through the other side of the mansion.
I got there and shot the four guards who weren’t on watch.
I began climbing like I was trained to.
I don’t plan on letting her go no matter how pleasant or beautiful she is.
Chloe Seth must die tonight.
