💦 Episode 15 💦
Louisa stepped into the sitting room as she gently slide the door close behind her.
She hasn’t taken an overview of the room when her eyes suddenly fell on Ciara on the couch.
‘OMG! She’s up’ Louisa exclaimed within herself as she moved closer to her.
“Hey” she said almost in a whisper trying to gain her attention.
But Ciara was already asleep. She fell asleep on the couch not too long ago. Louisa seeing that, gently ran her f!ng£rs through her silky hair, removing the tuft that fell over her face.
Ciara felt hands on her. She gently opened her eyes just to see a smiling Louisa before her.
“Where have you been? I was so worried” Ciara faintly asked.
” You never had to be. I am back now” Louisa replied softly, carrying her into her arms.
“You need to rest. Tomorrow is Saturday” Louisa added making way to her room.
” I thought you were….”
“That’s okay CC. We’re gonna get some rest now. You don’t have to talk much” Louisa cut into her words…
She entered Ciara’s room and gently placed her on the bed and covered her warmly with the duvet.
“Good Night C” Louisa klzzed her hair. Ciara smiled softly at Louisa.
Louisa was about to leave when she felt Ciara’s hand clinged to hers.
“Is that why you do every night? Going out to drink?” Ciara innocently asked . Leaving Louisa so dumbfounded and speechless…
” I wake up all nite and you are nowhere near the house.
Don’t look surprised. I wasn’t trying into your affairs. Your breathe gave you in.
Your breathe tells everything” Ciara added.
Louisa exhaled sharply. Her breathe,
Her breathe definitely stinks of alcohol. She didn’t remember to wash up before talking to Ciara.
Smart kid.
“How come you know I do leave the house whenever you are asleep”
“Yeah I know because I wake up every night and go to your room. But you aren’t always there”
Louisa felt bad for what Ciara just disclosed to her. But why does she wake up and go to her room every night?
” Ciara. Why do you always wake up at night and go in search of me?” Louisa asked.
” I am having nightmares Louisa. Terrible Nightmares” Ciara shuddered.
Louisa drew closer to Ciara. Sitting on a close edge.
“What about it?” She asked placing C.C’s soft hands into hers.
Ciara exhaled deeply,
” It’s about KAC. I see her taking me there. But the thing that frightens me most is that she isn’t taking me to my old cell. She takes me to another cell entirely”
Ciara’s voice grew cold.
“That’s never gonna happen Ciara! Schwezilia will not take you back there! She will never take you away from me! I will Never allow such”
Louisa cupped her little face. ” You hear me? She will never find you!” She stated Matter of factly.
“I am so scared Louisa. I got to know that dreams mostly comes to p@ss. I don’t want to go back there.. it is horrible” she cried on Louisa’s shoulders.
” This Dream will never come to p@ss I promise you! I swear to you that I will always protect you. At any cost!.
Schwez must have given up search for you. It’s been a month and there is no attempt. I see no danger on our way. She won’t find you. You are perfectly safe” Louisa @ssured, wrapping her in her arms.
” I am really sorry Ciara. I have not been fair these past weeks. I haven’t been there for you when you needed me most. I am so sorry” Louisa genuinely apologized smoothing her soft hair as Ciara sobbed.
“You know what? I’ll sleep with you tonight. Let me journey down with you to your dream and see if that stupid schwez will come back to threaten you. If she does, I’ll plant my fist so h@rd on her face that when she wakes, she’s gonna be so shocked and scream her eyes out ” Louiy boasted loftily to Ciara.
” I’d really love that” Ciara smiled.
Løūïsã planted another klzz on her hair as she climbed the bed to Join Ciara. Covering themselves with the bedspread.
“Dammit you worthless Bastards!!!! How long is it gonna take you to find one Shitface kid?” Madame Schwez raged out. Smashing a bottle on the wall.
he fearfully flinched. Trying to avoid her burning gaze.
“We are still on it Boss. We have thoroughly searched every nook and cranny of this town. But she is nowhere near it” the leader of the gang replied with a croaked voice, his head lowered in shame. Unable to glance at his fuming Boss.
“That kid gotta be somewhere near St.Lucas . If she can’t be found within this premises, extend your seARCH!!!”
“Okay Boss! We shall do just that” he replied almost immediately.
“Oh.. so you were waiting for me to tell you how you’d go about the search huh? Useless fools!!…
Now scramble out of my sight before I blast your brain out for the dogs to feast on!”
She threatened. Causing him to scurry out of her office in a horrified state.
“Bunch of Incompetent idiots!…. So useless. Dummies! Just one kid and you are giving me worthless excuses….”
She paused, taking a heavy drag from her pipe. Puffing the smokes into the air.
“That kid knows too much! I rather die than let her out of my grasp. She’s gonna leak my secret to the FBI’s. I’m doomed if that happens.”
“Damn that little bastard! She thinks she can sl!p out of my watch just like that? You must be in a million years joking.
I am coming for you. I will get you no matter what! Even if it takes years, I am gonna get you! You are mine CIARA! You are mine!!”.
Ma’am schwez grinned wickedly puffing out more smokes from every hole in her face.
“…and when I finally bring you back here, I surely know the cell that suits you😈😈”
She nodded silently. And continued with her pipe.
💥💦💎 Episode 16💎
The Morning Rays penetrated the room so bright. Reflecting on Louisa’s face. She woke up, gently dabbing her eyes.
Still on the bed, she turned her gaze to the wall clock. A minute past seven.
It’s Saturday and she won’t be going to work today. She wrote a day off on her schedule.
Hell, she needed it.
It has been a very busy week for her and the company. At least she needed time to rest and also be with Ciara.
She thought, staring at the sleeping Ciara whose hair was all over her face.
Louisa gently used her hand to shove it aside from her face. Causing her to wake up.
” Morning sunshine” Louisa smiled beautifully at her
“Good morning Louisa”
“Hope you slept well” she asked stepping down from the bed.
“Yes I did. Because you were beside me all night” she answered covering herself with the duvet.
“Its already morning Ciara” Louisa smiled. Ciara wants to continue with her sleep.
“And Saturday” Ciara drawled.
“It still doesn’t matter C.C . Anyways rest while you can. I’ll go make breakfast. Hope you like waffles”
“Waffles? Are you kidding? I LOVE IT! And I am coming to join you prepare it” Ciara excitedly jumped down from the bed.
“Got you there! I really need a hand though. Come join me if you want.” Louisa chuckled as she left for the kitchen.
“I’m right behind ya” Ciara shouted and follow suite.
“Hummmm!…. yummy! This tastes really good” Ciara complimented with a mouthful.
“Yeah it does. My mama taught me well. I give her the credit.
Most of the dishes I am able to make today was from her. She was a great cook.
I made lot of friends in school because of my favorite delicacies 😋. My school mates would beg for some if they aren’t able to withstand the savoury small 😋.
And trust me😏 I know when to give them.
Our next door neighbors would troop into our mashion just to have a taste of my Mama’s dish.”
Louisa narrated with all smiles and brightness reflecting on the face.
” You sure look so happy talking about your mom. What Happened to her?”
Louisa’s face turned white as if she’s seen a ghost. What happened to her mom? Her parents??
” Louisa what’s wrong?” Ciara asked dropping her spoon.
” Uhnm…it’s… Nothing.” She replied.
She had always tried to forget what Happened to them. What happened to her parents.
It’s all her fault! She killed them. She caused their untimely death.
If only she hadn’t dragged them to beacon Hills that unfaithful day. They would still be Alive. She caused everything.
She caused her fate.
“Hello…oh. Louisa? Are you alright?” Ciara asked. Interrupting her thoughts.
“Ye….yes! Yes I am fine. I am alright. Urrrhh. I think I am done.” Louisa dropped her spoon, picked up the napkin and wiped her mouth.
“So soon?”
.”yeah. I am filled already” Louisa got up from her seat.
.”okay. Does any of this has to do with my question?”
Louisa paused. Arching her brow at Ciara.
“What question?”
“About your Mama?” Ciara aked picking up her spoon as she continued her meal.
“Well it doesn’t have anything to do with it” She blurted out.
“If you say so” Ciara stuffed her mouth with a spoonful.
“My own Mama used to make parfait and cakes on Sunday. My mama loved waffles too. She’d take us out after service on Sundays to strawberry Island. There we’d have our favorite dish and….
“What?” Ciara paused.
.”Sunday….why does Sunday ring a bell in my head?” Louisa asked.
“Is everything alright? Did I say something wrong” Ciara arched
“Sunday….. Sunday…. Sunday….
Oh Jeez!! Bayley’s Party!”
Louisa exclaimed.
“And I’ve got nothing to wear” she added
“A party? At aunt’s Bayley’s?” Ciara looked more confused.
“Thanks for the flashback C. Riy now we gotta go shopping” Louisa stated rushing out of the away.
“We? Shopping?” Ciara left her food and followed behind.
“Yes Shopping” Louisa replied.
She has earlier thought of it and Yes! She’s taking Ciara along.

“For what?”
“We are going to Bayley’s Party tomorrow by 7pm. And we need to purchase new dresses”. Louisa rushed out.
” A party 😁. Sounds interesting. Thanks for the info and tag along” Ciara jumped up in excitement.
“You are welcome. Besides you have to know that this isn’t a child’s party. It’s way more matured than you are. It.Is.Bayley’s.Party”and you are gonna see what isn’t your age Louisa said almost adding the Last part.
“This is way more than your age. I am taking you there because I can’t leave you all by yourself here in this house” She stated clearly.

“I hope so” Louisa exhaled sharply.
