(She Belongs To One 💫)

“Bryan could yell at anyone, but not me. Am his future wife. He can’t be mad at me because of that maid!!!!” I said angrily pacing back and forth In my room.
Written by Eunice Nwodu -don’t copy-
My friends were just staring at me.
“What are you all looking at? Let’s come up with something!!!” I yelled and they all shuddered.
Don’t do this to me.
You have to forgive me cause I love you.
We kissed with me pinned back to the wall.
Royce cleared his throat.
“That’s enough. You have to get home before mom starts to get suspicious” he grouse.
Bryan rolled his eyes.
Royce came over few minutes ago and now Bryan has to go.
“I’ll be back tomorrow” he said and opened the door.
Bryan stepped out putting on his mask.
I saw he left his phone.
I took it and ran after him.
“Babe wait!” I said and ran to meet him at the hallway.
He told me to call him ‘babe’ or he won’t answer.
“Your phone” I said.
“I intentionally left it so you’ll come out. Goodbye kiss” he said and pulled me close and we kissed.
I dragged my luggage out of my suit. Now I have to get back to France. I can’t Eben enjoy my leave. If it was when Natalie was alive, I would never be called.
But now I’ve been called back to HQ.
I got to the hallway and saw two young boy and girl kissing.
I smiled, love birds…
The girl’s skirt wasn’t properly on her waist and the boy held her by her hip and I saw something that caught my eyes.
I looked closely.
Isn’t that the mark that Natalie gave her daughter Amanda when she was born?? I was there at the hospital that day.
Could it be she’s her daughter?
Her daughter is alive??
“Amanda?” I called trying my luck and the girl flinched.
She pulled away from the kiss and looked at me.
Oh my God…
Exact replica of Natalie…
She is Amanda.
I stared at the strange woman that just called my name. Do I know her from somewhere? I racked my brain…No clue.
Bryan slowly left me as the lady came close. Two men in black suit showed up and collected the lady’s luggage.
“I’ll be down soon” she said to them and they left then she turned to me.
“Amanda…your name is Amanda right?” She asked balantly.
I nodded finding it all strange.
The lady is very pretty and dressed so rich and wealthy. She wore gold accessories…
She’s no ordinary person.
“Your birthmark…can I see it?” She asked pointing at my waistline.
Bryan made me stand behind him.
“You want to see what?” He asked glaring at the lady.
geez, he can’t even respect her despite the fact the lady is dressed expensive and sumptuous.
“Relax dear, I just want to see something on her waist. Am not stealing your girlfriend” she said.
“C’mon Bryan, allow her” Royce said. He had been leaning by the door watching us.
Bryan gave way and the lady came close to me. I gulped. How did she know I have a strange mark down there?
She gently pulled my skirt down a little and touched the mark.
“Natalie…You did a nice work” the lady muttered.
“Amanda, am Stella Graham, your mother’s best friend before she passed away” she said giving me a handshake.
“My mom’s best friend?” I muttered.
She smiled with a nod.
“We thought you were dead” Ma’am Stella said.
We were now in Royce’s suit. I sat on the bed with Bryan lying beside me, his hands wrapped around my waist and he won’t let go. Royce was leaning on the floor while Miss Stella was sitting on a couch.
“Your mother, Natalie and I were best of friends and then your father was the brother of the president. One certain time, we wanted to go for an occasion and your mom decided to help a poor tailor, Carol by giving her our order. She worked our dress for us and Natalie loved it. She wanted to help Carol from poverty so she made her to come work at her mansion.
“After Natalie had Amanda, she fell ill and died. Your father was assassinated. And Carol later revealed your mom made her next of kin. You were nowhere to be found…we thought you were also killed so Carol took over Natalie’s wealth since there was no one else to succeed her wealth from her family. Carol had evidence of where Natalie made her next of kin”
Miss Stella said…
This was too much to take in.
Carol that has been treating me like dirt actually got rich with my mom’s wealth??
What sort of misfortune is this?
Royce looked lost like he was absent minded. While Bryan acted like he cared less.
“Could it be possible, miss Carol sent that man to kill me?” I asked and all eyes turned to me.
“Am just guessing” I added and Bryan smiled.
“It’s possible babe” he said.
“You are not wrong dear. It’s true she might want you dead” Stella backed me up.
“Okay, let’s settle this. Bryan, you go home and act super drunk like you’ve been. Miss Stella, thanks for the info, we’ll stay in touch. Amanda, we’re going to the police station now to sketch the man that shot you. Any question?” Royce stated.
His mood has changed… Why??
Bryan kissed me before leaving…
I’ll miss him.
Miss Stella left.
Royce and I got ready and left for the police station.
“Let me go!!!
“I’ll never leave her!!
I yelled and jerked up.
I can’t even sleep in peace??
I saw Natalie hurting me… Cause I’ve hurt her daughter of course.
I was sweating all over.
Natalie, leave me alone…
I got off the bed and left the room.
I saw Bryan entering his room.
Where was he? – drinking of course.
What has Amanda done to my son?
“Bryan…” I called.
He shot me a stare and entered his room.
My poor baby suffering because of that bitch!
I went to his room anyway.
“Have you memorized the script?” I asked him looking around at his messy room.
“I already told you, am not doing anything without Amanda..” He retorted.
“Please Bryan! You’re pushing me to the edge and am loosing my patience!!” I half yelled.
“I don’t care” he hissed and went to the bathroom.
What do I do with this boy??
On my home from work I drove down the busy street and just then…
I felt something.
I revised taking a route to my girlfriend’s house.
Immediately I came in, I attacked her and starts to pull off her clothes.she giggled.
I smiled. She’s ten times better than Carol.
I was back to the hotel with Royce. I laid on my bed going through my new phone while Royce was in his room probably sleeping.
I went to the image section. Photos of Bryan popped up.
Didn’t see that coming.
There were lots of his photos and I hugged my phone. I kissed Bryan’s hot photo. I miss him so much…
When will I see him again? I just hope he comes tomorrow.
My phone rang.
I quickly picked it up.
“Hey babe. Are you guys back?” He asked.
“Yes. A while ago. Are you ready for bed?” I asked.
“Yeah. I can’t wait to see you tomorrow. What should I get for you?”.
“Nothing…Am okay. How’s Minnie?” I asked.
“She misses you but she’ll be okay. Is Royce sleeping? Are you guys sharing a bed?” He asked.
“Nooo… He’s in his room in the suit” I replied with a chuckle.
“That’s good. I want to see you. Should we video chat?” He asked.
“No, am sleepy. You’ll still see me tomorrow” I stated.
“Oh, yeah” he grouse.
He still didn’t hung up.
We chatted for a while before we hung up cause I was tired and sleepy.
I paced back and forth in my room.
That slimy snake!.
Fooledy best friend and inherited her wealth. There was nothing I could do about it cause she had evidence of Natalie willing her properties to her. The court denied my intervention.
My dear Natalie,
I found your daughter and I want to keep her safe…
I want to give her the life that she deserves. The life she could have lived with you.
I can’t believe she’s alive after all this years.
Once I have enough brain storming evidence, I’ll have Carol arrested and imprisoned. But… I can’t do this with Amanda’s life in danger. I need to keep her safe.
I couldn’t help but feel bitter.
How can nemesis catch up on me this way?
I remember it all like it was just yesterday.
(TBH by Eunice Nwodu….)
I walked behind mom as she walked into ma’am Natalie’s room. I was just four years old then. Mom was wearing an apron and carrying a tray.
“Ma’am. Miss Natalie, time for your medication” mom said smiling.
Miss Natalie was lying lifeless on the bed. Mom has been adding something to her meal making her weak and sick.
“…Amanda…where…is….sh…she??” Natalie struggled to say.
“Don’t worry about her ma’am” my mom said and brought out some papers.
“Sign these ma’am. It states here that All properties will go to Amanda in case anything happens to you.. The lawyer just left” my mom said.
I watched Natalie take the pen weakly and was about to sign.
Give it to your…son to read” she said weakly.
Mom glanced at me sweating and scared and Natalie handed me the papers with her hand shaking.
I looked at the papers.
I was so smart then.
I knew this means mom haves aunt Natalie’s cars and house.
“It..it says..Amanda will hereby inher–” i didn’t know how to say the word. But I know I just said Amanda instead of Carol.
But anything to make mom happy.
“Inherit son” mom corrected me nervously and laughed.
Natalie laughed weakly too.
She took the papers and signed them.
Mom then gave her her drugs. The drugs which made her go into a deep sleep as mom said.
I watched mom take Natalie’s finger prints.
“You did a good job Royce baby. You see all those cars outside, you can have anyone you like. Anything you like my boy!!!” Mom said happily while I just stared at Natalie who was lifeless.
She buys me toy and clothes every weekend and I just helped kill her.
My tears came down and I turned my back crying like a new born baby. I refused to talk to anyone for weeks after that happened.
it feels so sad to know Amanda, who is very special to me is Natalie’s child. I feel responsible for her death. I helped kill her.
How would I face her and tell her the truth??
I was damn moody.
I called my girlfriend and she said she was at her house. I left the suit and drove straight to her place. For the first time in my life, I value her presence as my girlfriend. She’ll help me get sobber…..
