The gardener’s daughter Episode 21 & 22

I was totally out of control.
I was barely aware of what I was saying.
Why is he so adamant? Tan would grab the opportunity without thinking twice!
A knock suddenly sounded on the door and I withdrew from him, feeling so shy and furious at once.
I picked up the robe from the floor and sl!pped it on again before sitting on the bed.
“Come on in.” Vicker’s eyes were on me as he talked.
His work girl Doris came in. “Sorry for the intrusion. I’ve got something to tell you sir.” She said to Vicker.
” Go on. Is everything alright? ” Vicker asked.
“Sir… I think we should be on our way back home.
I just received a call from one of the staffs.
Chairman had an heart attack minutes ago… ” Doris said and I g@sped.
Vicker stood perplexed and confused. I stood up and went closer to him.
“I think you should be on your way back home Vicker. Your father needs you right now ” I said eagerly.
” Shit! What happened?” Vicker asked and rushed up to pick his phone.
He dialled a number which I suspected to be his father’s bit no one was picking.
“Doris…get ready Immediately. We are leaving.” He told Doris and she left.
Vicker looked at me . ” We are leaving with you,Sarah. Tell me you didn’t change your mind.”
I sighed. ” Vicker….I don’t wanna go home now.” I said and shook my head.
“Please… don’t make things more h@rder. Please….Sarah…I need you by my side. I’m not complete without you!” Vicker pleaded and the look in his eyes made me nod.
” Oh.. thank you Sarah. You are my world….my queen and I will love you with all my being and every p@ssing day.” He said and hugged me.
I hugged him back with a big smile on my face.

SHIT!! I yelled into the air as I woke up and found out that I slept off in the boat.
“Tom!” I yelled stepping into the sand.
Tom appeared holding wine tools.
“You didn’t fv¢king wake me up! We are late!” I yelled.
It was already noon and we still haven’t gotten to Singapore.
We were supposed to have gotten there last night but a terribly wave hit us, knocking off the boat.
“I was busy with the guys boss. But we are set now. The boat is back in shape.” Tom replied.
” Come on fellas! Hurry up! Delay is dangerous!” I yelled and everyone got in.
Soon…we started sailing through the cool water.
Dad? An heart attack? What could have caused it?
I was getting so scared. I don’t wanna lose the old guy…not now.
I’ve got a lot of respect for dad and I love him so much.
Nothing should happen to him. I threw my clothes into my bag and looked up when Sarah came in fully dressed in Doris’s clothes.
Wow. Despite my worried state,I still has the appetite to look at her.
She is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever lay eyes on. “Doris is a nice girl,I just confess.” Sarah said with a smile.
” Come baby.” I said with a smile and hugged her when she got closer to me.
“You look beautiful. If there is another word than beautiful… I had use it” I said touching her heavy hair.
Sarah smiled. ” Thank you Vicker.”, She replied.
I zipped up my bag and held Sarah’s hand. “Stay with me Sarah. Don’t disappear again…no matter what ” I said unconsciously.
Never knew why I said that but I just has to.
Sarah smiled again. “I’m going no where Vicker.
I wanna see Mr McDonald too. He’s been an angel to us.”
Together we left the room. Doris joined us downstairs.
After paying all the bills,we found our way to the crowded airport.

We got into the city minute’s later and through a fast means,I located the hotel.
It was a large one and I wondered how I was gonna find Sarah.
I can’t lose that girl. She’s mine.
“Tom…you and I are going in there’s now. Check out the areas while I ask people in the reception for Sarah.” I said looking at the hotel as we walked towards it.
I got into the reception and saw a girl attending to people.
I walked to her and showed her Sarah’s picture.
“Oh….she just left with her boyfriend now.” She said and I felt a jolting spark.
I almost lost my temper. “What did you just say?” I yelled.
“She already left minutes ago. Are you looking for her?
Do you have any business with her?” She asked and I turned away, hitting the table.
Shit!! My breath increased as I tightened my fist.
It’s time to inform dad about this. Sarah has got to be found.
I’m never gonna rest until I have her back under my control!!
My heart was beating very loud and fast as Vicker held my hand and led me into the jet.
I had this mixed feeling as I sat on one of the beautiful chairs and looked around.
I would never have imagined entering a jet so soon!
“Hey….you look amused.” Vicker laughed, sitting opposite me.
I smiled. “It’s beautiful.” I replied looking around.
Vicker smiled back and sighed. I could tell he was thinking about his dad.
I reached forward and covered his hand with mine. ” He’s gonna be fine, Vicker. Have faith.” I said soothingly.
Vicker klzzed my hand and nodded.
Doris got in and soon we became airborne, going back to America.
💦 Hours
“How is he doing,doc?” I asked with tears as the doctor stepped out of my husband’s room. I couldn’t explain what caused his sudden illness.
He was perfectly fine not long ago. Most of his staffs were already in the visitor’s room waiting to see him.
Many other people were in the visitor’s room looking worried. My husband must be a king to many people.
Why all that’s stress? Now they’ve succeeded in giving him heart attack! I felt like driving them off but couldn’t.
Not when I’m still trying to figure out what really happened.
“He’s gonna be fine, chairlady. All you have to do is be by his side and make sure he takes his drugs.” The doctor said.
Miller came out of the room too and I looked disdainfully at him.
He’s feeling like his part of the family now. What insolence!
Just then,I heard the sound of a car coming into the compound downstairs.
“My son is here!” I cried going out to welcome my Vicker.
I got outside the compound and stood at the veranda waiting for him to highlight from the car.
He got down and didn’t even look at me. I frowned as I watched him move over to the p@ss£nger side and opened the door.
I watched as someone pulled down her leg and started coming out.
Did Vicker brought a girl home from Singapore?
Who the hell is sited in my son’s car?
When this person finally got out of the car and raised her head,our eyes met and I g@sped moving back.
No….I must be dreaming.
I must be seeing a ghost…no!
I moved back till I collided with the door behind me and g@sped again.
Standing before is Sarah….Sarah again?
Sarah with my son?? What’s happening?
She’s supposed to be dead! No this must be a dream.
My eyes met with hers and I smiled slightly.
She looked dead and shocked. I looked at Vicker and noticed he was looking at his mother too.
Is he really gonna keep to his promises of getting justice done?
I’m never gonna let this slid cos I’ve been through a lot.
Vicker had better be on my side or be against me in this.
It’s either of the two. Will he really go against his mother because of me?
I can’t wait to find out.
I hugged dad again for the umpteenth time with huge tears in my eyes.
It was so heartbreaking to see him so lean and sad looking.
Had it been because of me?
I was however happy to see my sisters and Joanna’s son.
I was already an aunt without knowing.
It’s been six hours since I returned home with Vicker.
I was yet to go into his house cos I was still talking with my family, telling them how I was kidnapped and how I escaped to Singapore but I didn’t tell them about the @ss@ssin thing.
I told them how I met Vicker and how he brought me home.
I felt so much as ease to finally see my family. Once I saw them, I realised how much I’ve missed them.
“I wanna see Vicker’s dad, Father.” I said after changing into one of my old clothes.
Dad smiled and let me go.
Once I got in front of the entrance, I remembered the old witch and how shocked she looked when she saw me come out of the car.
I walked into the house and went straight up to Mr McDonald’s room.
The door was opened and I stepped in. Mr McDonald was on his bed, sleeping. Vicker sat beside him while the witch sat on the sofa beside the bed.
She stood up immediately I came in. “You?” She asked.
“Yes, me.” I replied and looked at Vicker.
He was looking far away and didn’t even turn to look at me just once.
“Get out of this room. You have no right to be here!”, She yelled at me.
I walked closer to her and smiled. ” It must have been so painful and disheartening to find out your plans for me failed, Mrs McDonald. ” I said boldly.
” What the hell are you talking about?” The witch pretended.
“Mom, there is no need to pretend. She told me everything that happened. How you got her kidnapped…. And tried to kill her.
Mom… Why? ” Vicker asked and before me right there, the witch bursted into tears.
Oh my goodness… did she found out I was responsible for her kidnap?
How is that possible and now she already told my son?
What happened between her and Mask? Did Mask betray me by telling her I was responsible for her kidnap?
Gosh…I’ve got to find out but right now,I need to deny this shit!
I’m not gonna let this nuisance drag my name into the mud. I’m not gonna let her make my son and husband turn against me.
I bursted into tears on hearing what Vicker said.
“Vicker! How could you believe that about your mom!
How could you?” I wept and let the fake tears stream down my face.
I got what I wanted cos Vicker immediately softened. “Mom ..”
“I can’t believe you could say that to me! Are you seriously thinking I could do something like that?
She has no prove!
Some fools somewhere out there wanna frame me up and you are believing them!”I cried, making it look so real.
I sat down on the sofa and continued crying. Vicker stood up and came me. He sat beside me and held my hand.
“I’m sorry mom. Please stop… might be listening.
You heard the doctor’s warning. Hi ishmeal on+233544142683 to join our Telegram page for more exciting stories. Please stop this…I’m sorry.” Vicker said and I hugged him, smiling evilly at Sarah who stood watching us.
I was dead shocked as I watched Vicker walk up to his mom and apologized.
Did he brought me back home for this?
“Vicker? What are you doing? Don’t tell me you believe her?” I asked.
Vicker stood up,ruffled his hair and turned to look at me with his eyes red.
“Just stop Sarah! Please! This is not easy for me!” He yelled at me making me look more shocked.
I shook my head. What has the witch done to Vicker? Did she bewitched him?
What’s happening to Vicker?
“This isn’t what we discussed!” I said angrily.
” Take a look at my dad! He’s dying! Please..stop! I’m going crazy!” Vicker said again.
No way..this isn’t happening. Why the sudden change of attitude?
I tried fighting back the tears in my eyes but couldn’t.
A tear dropped off my eyes and I wiped it off angrily. “This is crazy itself. How could you!
This isn’t what you promised me. Did you bring me here just to take sides with your mother?” I shrieked.
” This is h@rd on me,Sarah! Please!” He said again.
I nodded. “Yeah right. I made a mistake coming with you.” I said softly and turn my back against him.
And Vicker was silent!
He didn’t try stopping me!
I grabbed the door knob and he still was silent…not saying anything!
I turned back to look at Mrs McDonald. “Listen up, ma’am. I have nothing to fight you with right now. I’m still a kid.
I’ve got no prove but I will look for one.
I’m gonna be successful and come back for you. I promise.” I said and then looked at Vicker with the coldest stare. ” You shouldn’t have made me come with you.
I will go back to what I’ve been for the past five years and they will help me get what I want.” I said into his face and walked out of the room.
Once downstairs,I broke into tears. How could he do this to me?
I turned away from the door and watched my dad laying almost unconsciously in his bed.
I couldn’t stop the tears in my eyes.
Is dad dying?
I’m still very young and I’m an child who’s gonna carry everything.
I will have to shoulder everything if something happens to dad.
Mom out a arm on my shoulder and together we both watched dad.
I tried h@rd not to think about Sarah but seeing her walk out like that added to my sorrow.
Why couldn’t she understand what I’m going through?
Sarah…. have I made a mistake trying to sort out myself before her?
Shit! I cursed as I remembered what she just said.
What if she really leaves again to become an @ss@ssin?
Turning towards the door I opened it with speed but mom held me back.
“Where do you think you are going?” She asked.
“Mom…I need to…Sarah…” I said weakly.
” Get hold of yourself Vicker! If your dad doesn’t wake up anytime are gonna be made acting chairman!
Do you know how huge that responsibility is?
Are you gonna throw your father’s trust and all h@rd earned money and fame away all because of a woman?” Mom said stiffly into my face.
My hand sl!pped away from the door knob, feeling faint.
I backed against the door and pulled myself down sitting on the floor and looking at dad as he lay on his sick bed.
I’ve got a lot to handle right now but can I really let Sarah go again?
