Tears welled down my chubby cheeks as I sat on the bed tiredly.
I looked my bags all packed up and ready.
“Am going to miss you Nicky” Daniella wept
I rubbed my eyes and burst into tears again.
My mom was at the other corner crying her eyes out.
“You are so devilish dad! How could you do this to me?” I yelled at him.
He was busy with his bottle of whiskey.
What kind of a father is this man?
He’s the worst person I’ve ever seen….
“Shut up Nicky! You should be happy I sold you into wealth… The man is a very rich man” He belched loudly.
As usual he reeked of alcohol.
Duh! He’s such a jerk…
“I hate you father…” I screamed as I threw the mug I was holding on the ground.
It broke into pieces.
“You know what Lucas? You are nothing but a worthless man, you sold off my daughter because of your stupidity and your selfish interest” My mom said in annoyance
“Oh please Susan! I am not to blame entirely, I just borrowed some money from him, I couldn’t pay him back….” Father staggered
I watched him in so much disgust.
“You are a heartless man! So because you could not pay the loan you used the money for drinking and messing up, you had to pay with my daughter” Mother yelled
“Shut up Susan! She should be happy that I
Honestly I feel like giving this man a resounding slap to set his stupid brain.
“Mother is there not anything we can do to stop Mr Eric from taking away Nicky?” Daniella cried as she cling to me.
Tears couldn’t let me say a word.
The thought of living with a total stranger as a slave makes me go gaga.
“I wish we could do something about this Daniella, am sorry we can’t! The Santiago’s are a very powerful family so they will definitely track us down especially Eric” Mother cried
“But father why did you even go to borrow money from Mr Eric? And now my sister has to pay” Daniella cried as she buried her face in the pillow.
“When long am I staying there?” I said in tears.
“Until the loan is paid” Mother wailed.
Father coughs as thick spit rushed out of his mouth.
He farted loudly and we became more annoyed.
His existence sucks….
The night was just filled with sadness…
Tomorrow morning, I will have to start leaving with the rich guy who bought me.
I laid on my bed….
The pillow was already soaked with tears…
Let me formally introduce myself.
My name is Nicky Romero and I am 21 years old.
Very beautiful and curvy…
Born into a very wretched
My sister Daniella is just 14 years old…
My father Mr Lucas Romero, a jobless drunkard….
Who does nothing but laze around and take loans from people.
Ending up putting my poor hardworking mother into debts.
My mother Mrs Susan Romero, a very hardworking petty trader who does everything to make sure there is food in the house.
She’s actually the breadwinner of the family.
Now of all the people in the world for Father to borrow money from, he borrowed money from the most deadly young man.
Eric Santiago, a very wealthy and powerful man from a wealthy family.
From what I heard about him, he is very arrogant and mean.
How am I even going to cope with such a person?
I kept on crying…
I walked out of the house in tears with my luggage.
I watched my dear mother cry her eyes out together with Daniella who could not stop wailing.
My gaze went straight to father who as usual was filling a water can with some whiskey.
Actually Mr Eric sent his driver to pick me up.
“Get in!” The broad chest driver said rudely.
I flinched at his touch alone.
My heart skipped…
This is going to be tough!
I sluggishly entered the car …
“Bye Nicky! Don’t worry I will make sure I work hard so that you will come back to the house” Mother screamed in tears.
“Nicky! Nicky!!” Daniella wailed as we drove off.
I kept staring out of the window.
“What kind of life awaits me in Eric Santiago’s mansion” I thought
I sat on my giant couch in the sitting room.
My eyes were fixed on the television.
The door threw open, My driver…. actually one of my driver came in.
“Sir! She’s here!!” He said as I nodded and signalled him to let her in.
She walked in.
I raised my face to see her…
And 😱 😱 😱
“You again?” We asked each other in unison….
I walked into the very large room with my luggage.
The driver handed a key to me before he left.
My heartbeat increased…. 💓
For sure I know this place is going to be terrible.
I can’t believe this… So the guy I threw my ice cream on is the one am sold to.
Tears refused to come out of my eyes as I thought of him.
He’s the most arrogant person I’ve ever seen.
“You again?” we shouted together.
“What are you doing here crazy lady?” He asked arrogantly.
“Why are you stalking me Mr rude?” I asked with my palms folded.
“Actually you are in my house you chicken” He said and my eyes popped out in shock.
“So I bought you?” He smirked at me.
I felt like collapsing…
Oh good heavens… 😇
Take my soul with you….
I kept praying within myself.
To my greatest surprise, he only told the driver to show me the room.
I sat heavily on the bed.
Woah…. It was so soft and bouncy…
I can’t wait to sleep on it.
Oh God! Please get money for my mom and sister to save me from this hell.
I breathed heavily…
I was still in shock….
This is quite a very big coincidence.
I laughed excitedly.
This is time to make life miserable for that bad mouthed girl…
I’ll make life unbearable for her.
The next morning….
I walked into her room….
She was still fast asleep on the bed.
I grinned wickedly….
I walked closer to her and placed the loud alarm clock on her ear as I turned it on.
It shouted very loudly into her eyes.
She flinched in fear and almost fell from the bed.
I almost laughed my eyes out but I controlled myself.
She stood up in shame…
I never knew she was this quiet…
“Hey! Get your lazy a** outta here” I shouted at her as she rubbed her eyes in weakness.
“Am… Am sorry” She said
“What do you think you are here for you good for nothing slut? There are lots of work for you” I said as she gulped.
“But am yet to brush my teeth” She said as I scoffed.
“And so? Follow me now” I ordered as I walked out of the room and she followed me.
We walked into the very large garden behind the house.
She was still surprised.
I threw a rake and cutlass at her.
She was able to dodge else the objects might hurt her.
I don’t care!
“What are we doing here?” She asked
I kept mute at first as I eyed her dangerously
“Clear this place” I said as I pointed at the big garden.
She looked around gobsmacked.
“What?” She cried as I sighed.
I quickly walked into the mansion leaving her outside.
I smiled in excitement.
“Very good! This is just the beginning of your suffering Nicky Romero” I grinned.
I sat by the window in my room upstairs and watched her suffering.
He’s so heartless….
I mean who does this kind of work?
I mean I can do any kind of chore but working and clearing a garden three times bigger than the compound early in the morning.
I yawned hungrily.
I picked up the cutlass and started working.
I didn’t even have any thing to eat last night.
I was feeling very famished.
I kept working and working.
1 hour 🕒
2 hours 🕒
3 hours 🕒
4 hours 🕒
I was still working….
It was almost noon when I finished.
My eyes were turning and I was hungry.
I walked into the room….
I saw him at the sitting room watching movies.
I quietly walk towards the stairs.
“Nicky…..” He called and I stood at a place.
“Yes…” I said rolling my eyes
“Get into the kitchen and prepare something for me to eat” He said with his eyes fixed on the television.
I felt like strangling him.
💭 What? After working for hours?”💭 I thought
“Am really tired” I said
He only turned around and gazed at me.
I gulped nervously.
I quickly walked straight to the kitchen with a squeezed face.
My eyes caught with the food timetable pasted on the wall.
“Chicken salad….” I yawned
I started cooking.
Some minutes later….
I was done cooking.
I quickly served the food on the dinning.
He walked to the dinning and sat.
I prayed within myself.
By then, I was so much tired.
He opened the food and his countenance changed.
He stared me and I gulped nervously.
He spooned some of the food to his mouth.
He quickly poured the plate of chicken salad on me……
To be continued…..
Mr rude ooo 😭😭
He poured the food on her 😲😲
This is still the beginning!
Good night guys….
