*🌺🥀THE SCENT 🥀🌺*
(WHEN THE RICH MAN FALL IN LOVE WITH A BEGGAR)
I got home and met mom on that same couch she was sitting on when I left.
“Hi Mom” i greeted going over to peck her.
I did so well in hiding my angry self and masking it up with a smiling face.
“Welcome dear… So tell me… How was your surprised visitation?” She asked sounding eager.
“It went well mom. He even made me promise to come visit him another day!” I lied.
” That’s good then. I wonder how you are able to manipulate him in forgiving you. But you did a great job!” She commented.
” Wanna go change into a comfortable cloth” I told her before heading to my room.
I can’t believe Dwayne called me a beggar!
Me Lucy? A beggar?
He really hate me for what I did to those two poor stinking beggars.
I know what to do!. Very early tommorow morning, I will make sure I go back to that restaurant and look for those two. I will transform myself into a very generous person and help them.
Hiding under their facade, I would show Dwayne the good side of me. With that, am very sure he will look at me from another perspective. Then after, I would have those two kidnapped and tortured for being the reason for my insult and disgrace today.
Dwayne you are mine. Easily or forcefully. I must have you!
*AMELIA’S POV 🌹*
Since Alex spoilt the phone sir Dwayne gave to him yesterday, we have no other means of informing him that we would be coming today. I really have to see and thank him for the great favour he did for us. I never knew my wish would be fulfilled so fast.
After eating that pizza yesterday, that was when I come to understand that I wasn’t born with indigestion but because of those junks and waste food, I grew accustomed to it.
We kept the remaining pizza so we can eat it this morning and that we already did. And we still don’t even know what to do with the money.
“Lia, since I have spoilt the phone, why don’t we just go and sit somewhere very close to the company?” Alex asked jolting out of my thought.
” How are you sure he will find us? And the security won’t allow us in right?” I muttered.
“He will surely do because he works there. And I also recognize his car” he replied.
There’s a probability that he would find us. We should just try our luck right?
“Okay let’s start going” I said picking up my bag.
“Pheeeeew…. pheeeeew.. pheeeeew…. pheeeeew”I heard Alex continuous whistle behind me and I shook my head.
I wonder why all this bush snake haven’t accepted his invitation yet.
On our way, some people offered us money but Alex declined all the offer.
“What’s wrong with you!? Why are you refusing those money?” I asked.
” Because we don’t need them for now!” He replied simply and I scoffed.
“Is the company that far?” I asked because it been more than an hour we left home and we haven’t got there yet.
“Lia!…that’s it” Alex said excitedly while pointing at a very big building. Company I meant.
“Moor corporation?” I read out when We got a little bit closer.
“What!” Alex exclaimed and I shot him a glare.
“You can read that?” He asked bewildered and I shrugged.
Why is he surprised? I can’t recollect how. But all I know is that, I can read, and I can also count money.
Before my parents Death, whenever we wants to buy something from the little we earn by begging, am always the one who usually pay for it.
Weird isn’t it?
My mom told me I once fell and hit my head so that’s why I lost all my childhood memories.
“Let’s just sit here and wait for sir Dwayne” I said and we both settled down beside a small tree flower but with enough shield to keep us from the sun.
I woke up and felt as if I slept on something.
Just then, I remembered how I placed my phone on my chest yesterday before dozing off. And now this morning, am the one lying on it.
I slept very late at night yesterday waiting for Alex call. But I got none.
Did Amelia get angry with him for collecting those things from me? He even promised to bring her today. Will she agree to come with him?
I don’t think!
If she agreed I would have seen their call since last night.
I sluggishly got out of bed heading to the bathroom.
After preparing myself, I took the remaining food I ordered yesterday from the microwave and eat.
I picked up my car key and other things I would be needing after am done eating.
“Why is this car so dirty like this?” I thought when I got to my car parking lot. I don’t think I would be going to office in this car today.
That’s thought, I got inside the new Lamborghini my Mom got me for my birthday last year and contemplated whether to go search for them because Alex described to me where they are staying yesterday. I ignited the engine heading to office.
I just pray to see them!
I didn’t pass through the route I came from yesterday because I didn’t go to search for them. I passed the normal route from my house to the company.
I got to the company and drove in but not before roaming my eyes checking to see if he really came.
And that means only one thing.
Amelia dislike what I did for Alex.
*AMELIA’S POV 🥀*
Sitting down here, an hour has passed already.
“Alex, is that his car?” Was the question I keep asking each time I saw a car go into the office.
But the answer is always NO!.
While sitting, I saw a very beautiful different coloured butterfly pass by.
The image of a young boy holding a beautiful young girl and running after a butterfly that looks just as same as this flashed in my memory.
“Aaaaaash!” I groaned when I felt a sudden banging in my head.
What’s happening to me??
” Lia!…what’s wrong?” I heard Alex ask concerned.
“I don’t know…I just felt a sudden headache” I told him while touching my head maybe it would ease the pain.
“Aaaaaash” I groaned again when the headache was getting intense.
“Lia, let’s just go for now and maybe come back here tommorow?” Alex suggested staring at me.
Since the pain is not subduing but getting more and more intense I decided to go with Alex suggestion.
He helped me got up and holding my hands to support my walking, we walked heading home together.
I think seeing sir Dwayne would be for another day.
“Lia…how is it now?” Alex asked worriedly after a while and I nodded letting go of his hand.
“Am okay now” I replied when I felt the headache fading away.
What was that memory all about?
A memory that’s caused me to have the headache I haven’t had In years.
Is that a sign of falling sick?
“Oh no! I don’t want to” I cried inwardly.
*LUCY POV 🌹*
I arrived at the restaurant very early in the morning. I parked my car beside the roadside but very far away from the main road to avoid being the reason for the clashing of cars in the neighborhood I don’t even know anyone in nor do I usually visit if not because of the blind date that made me come once.
I made my way to the roadside food stall not very far from the restaurant and settled down on one small plastic chair I found there.
I ordered for four rolled up pie so as to use that as an excuse for sitting there.
And trust me, the thing is damn delicious.
Its been more than four hours of me sitting with agitation, stretching and checking to get a glimpse of those two beggars but to no avail.
Have eaten almost all the woman’s pie just so she won’t notice the reason why am there.
Am willing to wait till night because I knew one of those two would definitely come out here unless they want to starve themselves to death.
As if the heaven are in support of my thought, I saw them both from afar coming from God knows where.
Beggars are meant to wander around without having a destination right?
At least it seems this two do visit here everyday.
But who cares?
I paid the woman and quickly stood up from where I was sitting to go meet them.
“H…hi…hii…” I stuttered when I got closer to them.
At first, they were both staring at me confusingly not saying a thing.
Hun? They didn’t recognize me. do they?
I started breathing in more than I should but when i didn’t smell anything disgusting, I breathe a sign of relief.
Thank God this one’s ain’t as stinking as others poor beggars are.
Just that they were putting on tattered clothes.
“You!” I heard the guy surprised voice
As if it was planned, they both shriek away from me at the same time with a face covered with fear.
That is it!
They should be afraid of me!.
“I’m so sorry for what I did to you guys the other day.” I apologized swallowing my pride.
I glare at them and they were still stuck up with the fearful look.
“What to do!?”
“What to do!?”
“I’m seriously sorry for what I did believe me!” I said faking a sad face.
I looked at them and I saw their expression softened a bit.
“I’m Lucy. You?” I asked stretching my hand for an handshake.
They both look at themselves before they took their eyes back at me.
“Alex” the guy said extending his hand and I could hear the nervousness in his voice.
I guess they still have my brutal deed in mind.
After I let go of his hand, I took my hand to the lady and she eyed it suspiciously.
“Amelia” she said slowly ignoring my stretched hand.
Hmm Egoistic beggar.
“I’m truly sorry Alex and Amelia. Hope you guys has forgiven me?” I asked smiling up at them both.
” Ye…yes…”they both stuttered.
“Okay if you know you have really forgiven me, then would you care for a lunch?” I asked and I saw their eyes widened.
” You want to buy us a lunch?” The guy asked and I wanted to reply when I heard my phone ringing and vibrating inside the small purse I was holding.
“Excuse me” I directed at them before moving a little bit away from them.
Oh it’s my mom calling!.
“Hi Mom” I greeted while placing the phone on my ear.
“Lucy where are you?” She asked impatiently.
” Mrs Moore called me that the supposed dinner would come up this evening in the Moor’s mansion” she added.
This is too sudden. i mean she should have informed us since yesterday right?.
“Oh, okay Mom…but you just go ahead of me”I informed her.
” And you?
” I would go from here” I answered not disclosing where or what am doing to her.
” Okay just be snappy with whatever you are doing and don’t be late”
” Okay Mom. thanks Mom” I said before I disconnected the call.
“A dinner with Mrs Moor. Dwayne would also be coming”I thought.
And then an idea Pop in my head.
That’s what am gonna do.
Am gonna make sure Dwayne get to see the good side of me Tonight.
” Sorry about that” I pleaded when I got back to where the two beggars were standing.
“As I was saying. Would you care for a lunch?” I asked again.
I stared at them waiting for their reply.
“Please?” I added when I saw how reluctant they were.
” O… okay!” The beggar boy said and I giggled happily.
The guy has been the one answering all my questions and request. Though the lady was just staring and scrutinizing me with her eyes.
“Really?!” I asked and the guy nodded his head again.
” Okay then!, Let’s go to my car…it’s over there!” I excitedly told them gesturing to my car.
I went ahead and they followed behind.
I opened the seat door and when they both climbed in, I closed it back.
Going to the drivers seat, I fastened my seat belt and ignited the engine.
“Dwayne just wait and see how generous I can be for you!” I said inwardly.
