The gardener’s daughter Episode 9 & 10

★★🧡 Korea,Seoul ★★🧡
I stared down at the phone in my hand confused.
Was that Sarah’s voice I just heard?
No, that isn’t her. I redialed the line again.
It was picked up by Rosetta.
“Rose, I asked you to put Sarah on the line. What happened?” I asked.
“I’m… Vicker I wouldn’t lie to you. I don’t know what has come over Sarah.
She’s acting differently since she started seeing.
I suppose you heard her say she doesn’t wanna take the phone. I’m sorry.” Rosetta said and I stood dumbfounded.
The phone sli-pped off my mind and I fell against the wall inside my room.
My system changed. A sudden headache hit up my head and I held unto my che-st so ti-ghtly.
My heart was thorn into tiny shreds. Did all that really c@m£ out from my Sarah?
I’m a man quite alright but Sarah is my weakness.
I couldn’t bear it.
The tears rushed out… I sat on the be-d and held my head with my shaky f!ngers.
I was tem-pted to call back the line but refrained.
I have to see Sarah and explain things to her. I’ve got to see her and let her know what I did was for her.
I’ve got to see her to bring her back to the loving and quiet Sarah I know.
Without thinking, I picked up carry all bag and rushed to my wardrobe.
I flung it open and started throwing out my clothes.
The door opened and Mr Park c@m£ in.
He looked confused as he stared at me. “Hey… what you doing?” He asked.
“I’m going back home!” I yelled without looking away from the clothes.
“Nah! Come on you must be joking.” Mr Park said and when I turned to look at him with my red eyes,he covered his mouth with his hand.
“Xander! What’s wrong with you!” He exclaimed.
” I nee-d to go home Mr Park… plea-se.” I was crying now. I couldn’t just hold it inside me.
Whenever I remember all what I heard from Sarah….I just had to cry.
“Tell me all that happened! I’m here for you,son. Just calm down and talk to me.” He said softly.
Mr Park has been a wonderful man to me and I knew I could trust him.
I sat back on the be-d tired and poured out my heart to him.
He sat beside me and put his hand on my shoulder. “Xander,you know it’s impossible to go back to New York now. You’ve got important things you are doing at school.
Do you wanna repeat a goddamn clas-s all because of a girl who reciprocated your sacrifice with being ungrateful?
You have to forget her for now and face your studies first.” Mr Park said and I looked at him.
” Mr Park….I can’t and will never blame Sarah. I love her beyond that. I blame myself for this. I should have told her everything.” I said with pain.
” Xander still yet,she shouldn’t have done that!” Mr Park admonished.
” Make better friends Xander. You’ve been an introvert since you’ve come here.
Even the students sees you as an introvert cos you’ve never spoken to anyone.
Warm up to the students and make good friends. It’s gonna help.” Mr Park said.
The past weeks that I’ve started schooling at Shaolin international School has been hell cos I’ve refused to cooperate with the students who wanted to be friends with me.
The principal, Mr Hwang Woo Yum is dad’s business p@rtner and the principal has been treating me like a son.
Most of the students sees me as the principal’s son, coupled with the fact that I’m intelligent and bright, I’ve become quite popular within these few weeks but I never nee-ded any of it.
All I nee-ded was to see Sarah again.
I’m dying to meet her… I’m dying to finally get her to see me but hearing her speak right now shattered my heart.
I stood up and wiped my tears. No mater what happens, I’m never gonna despise her.
Mr Park stood up with me with a smile. “You are gradually becoming a man a d you have to face anything that comes your way. ” He said and I nodded.
“Thank you. ” I simply said and got re-ady for school.
Just then the door opened and someone else c@m£ in smiling.
Mr Hwang Woo Yum’s daughter who has been among those trying to get close to me.
She’s super excited about me or maybe crazy.
But how did the got to know where live?
I looked at Mr Park with accusation.
“She begged to follow me, Xander. I couldn’t say no to that beautiful face.” Mr Park said.
” Xander….can I come in? I wanted us to go to school together.” Kimmie said.
I looked back into her beaming face but all I could see was my blind beautiful Sarah.
I sat in my be-d, trying to fight back teas after answering Williamson’s call.
He alre-ady left me .. why the hell does he wanna speak with me?
I frowned de-eply and only got more frustrated because of the call.
I moved towards my bag and changed out of my uniform.
I had plans to meet Williamson at his house.
It would be my first time going to his house though.
I’m a bit apprehensive but the anger in me gave me boldness and once I finished dressing up in a pink go-wn that reached above my knees, I got re-ady to go.
“And where are you going?” Joana asked once I stepped into the living room.
I turned to look at her with a scowl. ” It’s none of your business where I’m going.
At least I’m no longer blind and I don’t fv¢king nee-d anyone’s help. Isn’t that what you’ve always wanted dear sister?” I asked.
“You are being too saucy,Sarah! I’m your elder sister!” Joana g@sped.
” Elder sister my cute as-s. An elder sister who ditches her youngers sister all because she’s blind?
I’m sorry but I’m never gonna recognize you as my sister. Hi ome on+233544142683 to be added to story headquarters room for more exciting stories. Not you. Not Rosetta.” I said into her face before stalking off.
I met dad on my way out. I st©pped and looked away.
“Sarah,I won’t have you speak to your sisters that way. What has come over you,my dear?” Dad asked, pu-lling off his work boots.
” You can’t have me talking to them that way dad?
But you had them talking to me like I’m a piece of trash when I was blind!” I said back.
Dad breathed in. ” But I was there to protect you, remember?” He asked and smiled. “It’s alright. I know what you went throu-gh.”
I tried smiling back but couldn’t. I suddenly wish everyone would just leave me alone.
“You are dressed up. Where are you headed?” Dad asked.
“A friend’s place for some school works. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.” I said and quic-kly left the house.
I walked out of the compound and took a cab straight to Williamson’s street.
I couldn’t be more happier when she finally agreed to come over to my place.
I’m Williamson Jones.
I live with my ever busy mom who’s currently out of town.
And since the beautiful blind girl in school finally got to see,I had the boldness to make her mine.
And I can’t wait to have her.
I figured out she’s still unt©uçhed and I can’t wait to be her first.
I freshened up after the call and put on a casual wear.
I dressed up my room and left the door open.
I looked into the mirror and smiled.
She wouldn’t know what’s coming her way. Young. Ignorant. Pure. Innocent.
I wouldn’t blame her though with all these attributes.
I thought as I anticipated her arrival.
The car st©pped me in front of a large beautiful gate.
“Watson estate,miss.” The driver told me.
I c@m£ down and payed. I stood in front of the white gate and dialled Williamson’s line.
I rang for a long time but no one was picking.
I redialed the line but still yet,there was no response.
I wasn’t sure if it was his house and o couldn’t just go in.
I stood closer to the gate and dialled his line again it still yet,there was no response.
I had to leave.
I waited for another cab.
Minutes later,I got into one and headed back home.
$h!t! I cursed when I woke up and found missed calls on my phone.
Missed calls from Sarah.
I sle-pt off without knowing. I called back her line.
“Hey….Sarah…I saw your call. Where are you now?” I asked eagerly.
“I’m home now. I couldn’t wait because of the sun.” Sarah replied from the other line.
I felt like smashing my phone on the ground.
“No! You can’t just go back! Can you make it back to the estate? I’m gonna come pick you up.” I said.
Sarah sighed. ” I’m sorry Willy. I don’t think I can come back.
I’m exhausted and I nee-d to rest.” Sarah replied.
” Don’t be silly! What’s your problem? I’ve been waiting all day for this!” I unconsciously yelled.
Sarah was silent at the other end of the phone and Immediately realised my mistake.
“I’m sorry I yelled.” I apologized.
“What do you mean by what you just said? What have you been waiting for?” Sarah I asked.
$h!t! I cursed silently and thought of what to say.
But she cut the line before I could say anything reasonable.
Furiously,I finally smashed the goddamn phone on the floor.
I cut the call and looked slowly down at the screen.
My mind told me something I didn’t wanna believe.
The way Williamson sounded on the phone…he sounded so desperate and mad. And what was he talking about?,
What has been waiting for?
I was still lost in thought when the door opened and my two sisters walked in.
They had a sorry expression on their faces.
I glared at them, wondering what the hell was wrong.
“Sarah…. Rosetta and I have come to realize made a grave mistake treating you like an outcast when you were blind.
Sisters are supposed to love and stand up for each other.
We are ever sorry. Can you plea-se just forgive us?” Joana asked in a voice I never knew she had.
At some point,their faces and voice t©uçhed my heart.
I had decided to be mean and unreasonable but I felt my eyes becoming watery. “You made life so ha-rd for me.” I said with my quivering voice.
They sat beside me and together, we hvgged.
I felt some tension re-lease inside me.
I felt a p@rt of me finally loos£n up it’s ti-ghtness.
“Are we forgiven? I want us to be the best sisters and graduate from school with flying colors. ” Joana said and I smiled.
It was the first time I smiled at them ever since I’ve regained my sight.
“It’s okay, Joana. I….I was frustrated.” I said and they both looked at me with un-derstanding.
“I know.” Rosetta breathed.
“He was your helper then. He could do anything for you then.” Joana added.
I st©pped to think about Vicker and realised I didn’t forget about him a bit.
I might be mad at him for leaving without telling me but no one can ever take his place in my heart.
He was once my helper…how can I ever forget him.
With tears in my eyes,I turned to look at Joana. “Am I ever gonna see him again?” I asked.
Instead of answering me,Joana brou-ght me close and hvgged me.
Dad entered just then and saw us. He smiled sadly.
We looked at his sad face.
“Dad? Are you alright?” Joana asked.
“I’m just too excited at the turn of events. You girls finally getting along.” Dad said and joined the hvg.
A p@rt of me was happy and another p@rt of me was de-eply sad.
I wish I could see him right now and asked him why he left without a word. I just nee-d to know.
★★💮 Korea,Seoul★★💮
That morning,I was happy as usual.
Ever since my new Namja chingu arrived,it’s been so lovely and great to go to school!!
I’m Kim Seo Hyun but I prefer being addressed as Kimmie.
I’m the type that hates schooling with pas-sion but that changed immediately I set my eyes on Xander.
And to t©p it all…he’s someone dad knows and treats like his own child.
Xander is the most cutest, humble and quiet guy I’ve ever met.
I’m the principal’s daughter but I hate studying!
Not anymore. Xander’s pres£nce brou-ght new meaning to my life.
Everyone must have noticed cos right now,Eomma is looking suspiciously at me as I wore my shoes.
“These days…you seem to always be in high spirit,Kimmie. Mareeba…. what’s happening?” Mom asked.
Mom and I are best of friends and very close. Mom is actually an Americana who got married to a Korean.
She’s the most prettiest mom in the world. Yes…I can vouch for that. 😍
“Nugu?{who?}” I asked, feigning to be innocent.
She gave me a knowing look. ” Tsh. Look at the young br@t trying to lie. Who’s begin this sudden smiles of yours? Oh! I know.” Mom laughed and I rolled my eyes.
” Mom, I’m late for school. Can I go now?”, I asked feeling bored alre-ady.
“You will gist me when you get back.” Mom win-ked.
“Of course mom! An–nyeong–hi–ga–se–yo {Good bye}!!”I shouted and zoomed out of the house with my umbrella and backpack.
I got into the car downstairs and the driver took me to school.
I was sick worried when I got yo school and went Xander’s clas-s but couldn’t see him nor his bag.
I was pissed off. He should be in clas-s by now although it wasn’t as-sembly time yet but then, Xander would never be late to school.
“Kimmie! You are here!” I turned to see my closest friend, Lee boo na coming into the clas-s.” What see you doing here?” She asked looking at my worried face.
” He isn’t here yet. ” I mumbled looking around.
I couldn’t ask anyone cos Xander never speaks to anyone.
“I-hae-mot-hae-yo.{I don’t un-derstand}” Lee bo na replied.
” I’m heading somewhere Lee. Don’t tell anyone. I will be right back!” I said be zoomed off heading straight to Xander’s house.
I l@yon the be-d,still feeling so feverish. I had woken up some hours ago to dress up for school but couldn’t.
I had a serious headache and had to go back to sleep after taking some pain relievers.
But it only got worse.
I didn’t nee-d to ask myself why I fell sick. Badly, I’ve been thinking about Sarah.
I couldn’t just st©p thinking about her.
The main entrance door opened and I heard footsteps coming towards my room.
Moments later, the door opened and I turned to see the intruder.
“Oh my goodness… Xander!” Kimmie cried and ran to me.
She t©uçhed my head and g@sped. “You are running a very h0t temperature.
Why didn’t you call anyone? ” She asked, getting on her knees and taking off the blanket on my b©dy.
“You should be in school Kimmie. I’m fine.” I tried saying.
She shook her head. ” No. You are burning up.” She said and t©uçhed my head again.
I looked into her face and suddenly, all I could see was Sarah.
My hammering headache suddenly cleared off as I continued looking into her eyes.
Kimmie smiled at me, maintaining her position.
I brou-ght her close and fastened my mouth on herl-ips.
It was as if Kimmie was waiting for that k!ss. She totally pu-ll-ed into me and wra-pped her arms around me.
I pu-ll-ed her down on the be-d and covered my b©dy with hers…….
