🍃 Claire 🍃
I am press but standing up is the problem, I can’t tell Richard, he might feel as if I am giving him trouble or stressing him and that’s what I hate most, being a liability to someone.
I stood up trying with all the strength in me, I walked one step at a time till I reach the bathroom, I tried flushing the toilet but no water, gosh! Not again, where will I get water to flush the toilet and I want to take my bath.
I went to the kitchen to prepare something, once she wakes up she will see what to eat but there is no water what a stupid plan, I didn’t pump the water now I need to go fetch it somewhere.
I went out with a gallon, I walked some miles before I could see where I could fetch water, I hurriedly fetch the water and hurried back home.
“Claire might wake by now and she can’t stand or walk with that leg she will need my help “I thought walking faster.
On reaching the house, Claire was limping down the stairs, it really hurt me to see her that way, is my fault for not helping her with the massage.
I dropped the gallon and walked towards her, I bend and carried her carefully to the kitchen, I redraw a stool and she sat on it all through it Claire’s focus was on me
“Why is she staring at me that way, is not as if I have something on my face or do I? “I asked my self cleaning my face with my hands
Still she didn’t take her eyes off me, is she ok?

I know I went off limit with my actions, I couldn’t just control my self, I think Richard could be my crush because when I am with him my mind is always relax but who is that guy I once beat up?
From this moment I don’t want to care about my crush or anyone
I just want to try developing my feelings, I want to see if I can have a thing with Richard
Why am I thinking about Richard? Is not as if he feels the same way? I might end up hurting my self again and that is what I don’t want.
I was so tired and weak after cleaning the whole house, cooking and fetching water.
I took my bath and serve Claire the food to eat but she was staring at me once again
Not now please because I am not ready for her questions
I hurriedly dish into my food and some minutes later I was done with mine I stood up to pack the plate but Claire’s food was still untouched, I dropped down my plate and settled back on the chair
“Claire what is the problem, why is your food still untouched, don’t you like it or should I prepare you something else or place an order? “I asked worriedly
“No Richard, I love the food because it is my favorite dish “she answered staring into my eyes
“Really? “I asked smiling, I know very well that she loves the food because that is always her favorite but I pretended.
“Richard “she called me and that instant my phone rang and it happens to be my dad himself
I didn’t want to answer it but at the same time I don’t want to give Claire a reason of suspicious
“Hello dad “I said calmly
“Richy where in god’s name are you and why are you abandoning the company? “My dad asked yelling through the phone
“I am so sorry dad, I will fix everything once I am back please just give me another month “I said hoping he ends the call but it gets worse because my dad brought up another topic, I didn’t have a choice but to hanged up
Something isn’t right about this, first Richard acted like my crush, he dresses like him, he talks like him and now he even cooks my favorite dish meat balls with mash potatoes or am I hallucinating?
And what will he take care of once he gets back, I must find out the answers to my questions all by my self.
I waited for him patiently to finish answering the call
“Claire I am exhausted, I need to take a nap “Richard said and made to walk away but I decide asking him my troubling questions
“Richard who told you what my favorite dish is? “I asked my eyes piercing into his
“Hmm, no one I also like the food “he answered forcing a smile
“Really? “I asked
“Yea, see you later “he said and walked away
I ate my food silently and cleared the table, I need a rest also, I walked to my room passing through Richard’s passage but his door was left a little open, I peeped through it, his phone was ringing but he was already asleep, I tiptoed inside to check who the caller is but before getting close to the phone the call as ended already
I dropped the phone turning back but a message popped in immediately
“BOSS *RICHY, THE BIGGEST SHARE HOLDERS WANTS TO SEE YOU IN PERSON BY THIS WEEKEND* ”
I stopped breathing only my eyes made a move, there were blinking non stop, God is this a dream?
“Why did richy lied to me, he pretended to be a random guy searching for a job, and that’s my crush’s name but his face is different.
I couldn’t held the tears that kept falling drop after drop until it became like a flood, I returned back to my room crying my self to sleep.
