👶Baby finds daddy a soulmate👶
🖋Pinky Preshy Chioma
I walked restlessly up and down.
Gosh… I hate those kids.
I can’t believe Alex he cancelled our get together because of his good for nothing children.
I picked up a glass of wine from the stool beside me and sipped in annoyance.
Anger burnt through me and I quickly threw the glass straight to the wall and it broke into pieces.
As Agnes rushed into the room.
“What’s going on…? Oh my gosh Bella!” She screamed as she saw the glass broken into pieces.
I backed her as I picked up a packet of cigarette.
“What’s wrong with you?” Agnes yelled at me.
I kept mute as I took out of the packet a stick of cigarette.
I made for the lighter on the stool and lighted the cigarette now in between my lips.
“You and I are meant to be together Alexander” I said as I blew the smoke straight into Agnes’s face.
“So this is about Mr Xander huh?” She laughed and clapped her hands in a gossip manner.
I only eyed her and kept mute… Smoking like my life depends on it.
“Wake up Bella… Mr Xander has kids for crying out loud” Agnes said as my eyes widened.
“And so what?” I shouted
“And so he doesn’t feel a thing for you so stop forcing
“Keep quiet Agnes! Shut up… He loves me and I will make him show it” I said
“You’re being insensitive Bella… You’ve been on this guy’s matter for closely two months now yet he doesn’t show any atom of love for you and you are still pushing” Agnes said
“I love Alexander a lot Agnes you don’t understand” I said as I broke down
“Goodness me! Bella that guy is just not interested like he doesn’t care about you cos if he does, he wouldn’t choose to be going on a picnic with his children first without even letting you know that he cancelled your appointment with him” Agnes said
“Those little riffraffs” I said under my breath.
“Cut it already Bella and face the fact” Agnes said
“Agnes just get out of my room right now” I said as I got up and walked towards the window backing her.
She’s so annoying!
“Are you pushing me out of your room and…” She asked
“Just go away! Scram… Leave me” I yelled as she walked out of the room.
Tears welled down my chubby cheeks as I turned around and looked at my ball gown and shoe hanged on the wall.
I was so prepared until that crazy Alexander turned me down.
I wiped off my tears.
I have to get rid of those stumbling block of a children.
They can’t come in between us.
Are you still confused? 😏
You don’t know me right guys?
Alright… I’ll tell you who I am.
My name is Bella Argus and am
Agnes happen to be my girlfriend and she shares the apartment with me.
Well I met the single father Alexander Cruz in a business trip.
Coincidentally, in a conference hall and believe me he’s so handsome and I also learnt his a billionaire.
But that’s not why am going after him.
He’s so cute and adorable.
I don’t care if he’s a single father but I just know he’s my spec.
And I will stop at nothing to have him all to myself.
Words refused to come out of my mouth as I stared at my little Sandy in shock.
I quickly took the phone from her.
“Uhmm… Bella? I don’t know who that is” I lied as I started the car engine.
“Oh really daddy? But she called you by your name in the text message she just sent and her phone number was also saved as Bella” Sandy asked as my mouth glued.
Sweats dropped down from my face.
How can a child be so inquisitive?
“Oh! You mean Bella? She’s a colleague!” I said as I faked a smile.
“And she just referred to us as…” She said as I cut her off..
“Baby would you like a stick of steak?” I asked immediately.
Her face curved to a smile.
“Sure daddy” she chuckled
I heaved a sigh of relief.
I hope that crazy annoying lady doesn’t ruin in my picnic
It was such a long journey.
But finally we arrived
I drove into the compound and parked the car.
The kids were all asleep.
I watched them and smiled.
Sandy is a replica of my late wife.
But Nicky has her character.
so pesky but lovely.
I had to carry them into one of the rooms that was less dusty and dirty
They were sleeping when I walked downstairs to carry in our luggage.
I sneezed continuously due to the dust.
It’s been a long time since we haven’t been in the guesthouse.
Two years before my wife died.
Suddenly, my eyes caught with the picture hanged on the wall.
I walked closer and touched the picture.
I blinked hard to avoid shedding tears.
“Kristine….. I miss you so much” I said as I kissed the picture.
it was my late wife’s.
I was still lost in thought when my phone beeped.
I paid no attention to it but then it rang aloud.
I quickly brought it out of my pocket.
it was the so annoying lady.
I quickly hung up and switched my phone off.
I just need to get some people to help me clean up so that I can pay them.
I picked my car keys from the table and walked out.
I drove around not knowing where exactly I was going.
There are no agencies here.
Cebu…. so boring!
Unlike in Manila.
I kept on driving….
Lots of plantations almost everywhere.
I was driving when I got distracted by the loud ringing of my other phone.
Oh my God! 😱
My car swerved and swerved.
I knocked down someone.
I gasped in shock as I stepped on the car brakes……
Mr Alex’s Pov:
My eyes widened in shock.
I gasped and I quickly got down from the car.
A young lady was with the young lady I knocked down.
“Are you OK? What is…?” I knelt close to her.
She was lying on the ground.
Before I could utter another word, she quickly got up from the ground.
I was surprised.
I thought she was unconscious.
“Let’s go! We have to go” the other girl said as she got up.
“Don’t worry sir! Am doing just fine” She said immediately
“Are you sure? I could take you to the hospital you know” I said as but she shook her head in disagreement.
“No sir! Thank you so much” She forced a smile at me.
She’s so cute! 😘
“Marga let’s go already” The other mean girl said.
The girl quickly picked up the basket of flowers that scattered on the ground.
She ran along with the mean girl.
I watched her until they disappeared from my sight.
I smiled to myself.
“MARGA…??” I said repeatedly as I got into the car with thoughts all over my mind.
I yawned tiredly as I opened my eyes.
I looked around in confusion.
I saw my siblings all fast asleep.
Are we already there?
I tapped them gently and they got up sleepily.
“Are we still in the car?” Nicholas rubbed his eyes.
“We’re here” Nicky jumped for joy.
We jumped up in delight as we rushed out of the room.
“This place is so big and beautiful” We said happily.
“Ohoohoo….” We coughed
So dusty but where the fvck is daddy?
The thought of the Bella girl.
I hate her so much.
My siblings were already walking about and looking around the house.
Cebu is such a quiet place unlike manila.
The exciting fact is that tomorrow is Christmas.
The very big day.
I was still lost in thought when Nicky picked up a picture.
“Sandy whose this?” Nicky asked childishly.
I took the picture from her and smiled.
“It’s mommy!” I said as my face frowned.
I missed her so much.
Nicholas blinked his eyes hard.
I know he used to be the mommy’s boy when mom was still with us.
“Ding dong 🔔” The door bell rang aloud.
Nicholas walked towards the door and throw it open.
But he had a real tough time before opening the door
The hinges of the door has already rusted.
That was why Nicholas had a hard time in opening the door.
“Daddy!” We chorused and hugged him tightly.
“How do you like Cebu guys?” They asked happily
“The house is so nice but dusty” Nicholas added as he coughed again.
We all shared a laugh.
“But we can say for sure if we haven’t had a stroll” Nicky added
“Of course guys….Am sorry I couldn’t get someone to clean the house up” Dad said disappointedly
“What?” Our eyes widened in shock.
I carried the basket out of the house looking so dirty.
Well we had to clean the house.
It was really very hard but fun.
I was sweating profusely.
“My baby is now a lady” Dad teased as I walked tiredly upstairs.
“Yes dad… We’re only doing this because we can’t wait to stroll” Nicholas said
We burst into laughter.
I walked into the house with my face frowned as Sister Goldy walked in too.
I backed her as my heart skipped a beat.
I know I was going to be queried.
“Why were starring at that careless man like that earlier?” Sister Goldy asked anxiously.
She sounded really angry.
And I wondered why 🙄
“Uhmm… Sis you shouldn’t refer him as careless” I said softly
“Shut up you silly girl! Was he not careless?” Aunt Goldy asked.
She was fuming with anger.
Why the heck is she so annoyed?
I was the one almost knocked down and not her….
“It was an accident sister…. He didn’t do it intentionally” I said
“Whatever! Why the fvck were you starring at him? You should shout at him not smiling” She yelled
“He apologized sister!” I said
“Keep quiet! He apologized and so what? It better not be what am thinking” She fired
“Huh? I don’t even know that man” I said defensively
“You’re nothing but a loosed slut you were smiling so good at him… I must tell mother about this” She flared up.
Tears welled down my chubby cheeks.
“Am not a slut Goldy” I cried out
“You dare not talk back at me Marga” She said as she landed a resounding slap on my cheeks.
I held my chin and tears kept rushing down my face.
“Slut! You are such a gold digger just because you saw the guy was handsome and rich you started drooling over him.. Cheap thing!” Goldy said
I burst into fresh tears again.
I ran out of the house heartbroken.
Why does Goldy and mother treat me badly all the time?
They always make me feel bad for the slightest things.
Uhmm.. Am really sorry I didn’t tell you about myself
Am Marga Dantes.
Am 21 years old and I live here in Cebu with my father whose a gardener and my step mother.
And about Goldy, she’s my step mother’s daughter.
Goldy is 28 years old.
The daughter she had before getting married to my father…. a love child.
My mom died when I was 13 years old.
She was so sick.
According to the doctor, she was suffering from cancer…. Skin cancer precisely.
Father had no money for her treatment so she couldn’t survive it
That was the worst day of my life…
My step mother and her daughter hate me so much and I don’t know why.
Though whenever my dad was there, they act all nice.
“Marga! Marga…” that’s Goldy’s voice yelling my name.
My heart skipped….
To be continued. ..
I really pity Marga?
But why was Goldy so angry?🤔🤔
Are you thinking what am thinking?
