THE WENDELL’S MANSION***
Vince storms inside the house angrily and Odessa who was watching a home video spranged up on seeing him.
“Vince” She call him, but Vince throws her deadly glare and Odessa swallows hard.
“Is everything okay?” She asked hoping to get a positive response from him.
“Tell me Odessa how can everything be okay when that son of yours has chosen to countlessly disgrace me!!!!” Vince yells at her angrily.
“Wh… What did he do?” Odessa asked stuttering.
“This is why I keep saying your useless, Carding takes after you, you both are just useless!!”
“Why? Am not wrong am I? Carding can’t even make a successful presentation without being timorous, his so dumb just like you”.
“Can you for once stop, you and I know Carding doesn’t want to take over the company, but you keep controlling and pushing him to do what he doesn’t want and you expect him to be perfect”.
“And what is that son of yours Good at, His only good at hanging out with his friends, he has nothing to show for except for his handsome face… He has no dream for the furture, his just like you who have nothing to show off”
“Can you for once stop belittling me?” Odessa said as her eyes turn red.
“And why shouldn’t I, Do you have anything to be proud of? You don’t right? All you know how to do is sit at home with your fish brain just like Carding… You both are so useless!!!” He spats and climbs the stairs to his room.
Odessa blinks back her tears, sitting back in the sofa.
“Ma’am are you alright?” One of the maids asked, her name is Cecelia, she’s Odessa personal maid. Odessa looks at her and fakes a smile.
“I’m okay Cecelia, Continue with what you were doing” She said, and Cecelia nods going back to her chores.
Odessa let out a sigh and immediately puts Carding on call, the phone was ringing but no one was picking. She called him up to ten times and yet he didn’t answer the phone.
Odessa sighs fraustratingly.
“Where could he be? I hope his okay” She muttered with a worried face.
Paige and Carding runs towards an alley and after a few steps, Paige stops running panting heavily.
“I… I… think he stopped chasing after us” She said trying to caught her breath.
Carding looks at her, and she was still holding his hand, he let out a cute smile.
“Are you alright?” She asked looking at him.
“Yes I’m, Why did you lie that you were the owner of the car?” Carding asked.
“And you were also stupid to have believe me” Paige said.
“What? I? Stupid?”
“Yes. I mean how could you have believe me so easily that I owned a car, from the way am dressed you could have sence that I can’t even afford a tyre talk more of affording a car” Paige said.
“Thanks for fooling me then, Can you let go of my hand?”
Paige looks at her hand that were still on his and quickly let go of it.
“Thanks” Carding said and Paige looks at him.
“Thanks to the crazy stunt you pull ealier, I feel so much better now” Carding said.
“I told you that you were definitely going to be okay, My words never lie” Paige said demonstrating, and Carding smiles.
“Is that man really your Dad?” Paige asked and Carding looks at her.
“I didn’t mean to intrude but…. I just happened to see him lashing out on you ealier, and being a curious person I just want to know if his your…..”
“Yes, his my Dad” Carding said cutting her short.
“Then if his your dad, Why is he being mean to you?”. Paige asked.
“My Dad wants me to take over the business”.
“Wait. Your Dad is the founder of Deloitte Conglomerate?”
And Carding nods.
“Wow that’s means your loaded with Cash, Can you spare me some change?” Paige asked and Carding looks at her.
“I run all the way from your Dad’s company down to this place, I only had one hamburger when coming to Chicago, and the excess run have flushed the hamburger out from my tommy”.
“Are you hungry?” He asked.
Paige looks at him and nods her head.
“Yes, am so hungry, and I feel am going to die soon” Paige whines and Carding smiles.
“Your funny…. Come with me I know the best eateries around here” He said.
“Your the real deal, I love you” Paige said smiling
“I love anyone that offers me food, even if is goat that offers me food am going to love it…. So which way should we go? Right or left?” Paige asked pointing at different direction.
“And right we go” Paige said jumping on toes as she takes the right part.
“She’s crazy” Carding mutttered with a smile before joining her.
“Wow Chicago meals are always the best” Paige said and she keeps shoving the food inside her mouth, shaking her head and hitting the table as well.
Carding looks at her.
“Where are you from?” He asked.
“I’m from everywhere” She answers taking a full Creamy chicken wings inside her mouth.
“I don’t stay in one place” Paige answers and Carding looks at her as she ate.
“Why’re you looking at me?” She asked and Carding shakes his head.
“My Mom is from Chicago, if you that’s what you want to ask” She said eating.
And Carding nods.
“Can I have more of this?” Paige asked showing him the empty plate of spaghetti.
“Sure” Carding answers and Paige smiles enchantingly.
“I love you I swear” She said giggling.
“Do you always tell everyone you love them?” Carding asked.
“Yes. I told you earlier right, I love anyone that offers me food”.
“Don’t you think is a little bit awkward?”
“Never mind” He said and signals the waitress to come over and in no time, another plate of spaghetti sauce was placed on the table for Paige.
“Smells so yummy” She said hitting her cutleries on the table, dancing with her Head.
“Your crazy you know that right?” Carding asked.
“I know I graduated from the department of craziness, So there’s no use telling me” She said and began devouring the spaghetti sauce.
Carding looks at her and smiles.
“So what do you want to do?” Paige asked eating.
“From your response ealier, it shows your clearly not interested in your Dad’s company, So what do you want to do?” Paige asked and Carding looks at her.
“What with the staring for?” She asked.
“This is the first time someone will be asking me what I really wanna do”
“Really?” Paige asked and Carding nods.
“Then am overwhelmed to be the first person to ask, So what do you love doing?” She asked.
“I want to be a soloist” Carding answers.
“So what’s stopping you?”
“My Dad. I possibly can’t go against him, he has my life wrapped around his fingers” Carding said.
“Too bad then… But I have an idea” She said with a smile and Carding looks at her.
“Which is?” He asked.
Paige stood up to her feet and takes his hand.
“Come with me”
“Wait. Where are we going?” He asked.
“Just come with me, I promise not to sell you” Paige said.
Carding pays for their food and leaves the eatery with Paige.
“What’re we doing here?” Carding asked looking around.
“Is a studio” Paige said.
“I know but why’re we here?” He asked looking at Paige.
“To do what you really want, even if is just for a day” Paige said.
“Not interested” Carding said turning to leave but Paige blocked his part.
“You can’t leave” She said spreading her hands widely.
“Look Miss, Being a soloist can never work out for me”.
“And why not?” Paige asked.
“Because at the end of the day, am still going to do what my Dad wants, There’re lots of piled up documents I need to go through…. Am leaving” He said and tries to leave but Paige kicks his knee.
“Sorry, but my talent is interfering in people’s business, we’re already here, and there’s no turning back, Yes our Parents always have our lives wrapped around their fingers, but shouldn’t we be given a day to do what we really want?”
Carding looks at her.
“I may not know you, But I want you to do what you really want, even if is just for today” Paige said, and Carding looks at her.
“Don’t look at me and get to work” Paige said, and Carding takes in his lips.
“Are you ready?” The studio operator asked Carding.
Carding looks at Paige who was sitting next to the studio operator and nods his head.
“Begin” The studio operator said and musical instrument began playing;
I was looking at my dream, that’s being deemed
And I was standing blankly
I don’t have anything left anymore
I thought about giving up everything, but
I am standing up again
Even today step by step
I step forward carefully
My heart is full of tears
But it’s an excitement that I’m embracing
I am staggering and shaking
But I step forward towards
The dream that I am going to meet someday
As his sang, Paige’s eyes were on him.
“He has a beautiful voice” She said to herself and slowly smiles.
“You were so good ealier, I didn’t know you have such an amazing voice” Paige said and Carding smiles.
“Thanks Miss, it’s feels so good to do what I really want” Carding said.
“Your always welcome…..” Paige stops halfway and gasps.
“What’s wrong?” Carding asked.
“What’s the time?” She asked and Carding checks his wrist watch.
“My Mom will be so worried about me, I arrived in Chicago at 1PM, telling her I’ll be home before she knows it, and is already 8PM and am still not at home… Where’s my luggage? Where did I keep it? I left it in your Dad’s company, Can we go get it?” Paige said rushly.
Both arrived in the company with a cab and thankfully her luggage was still there.
“Are you sure you can go home alone? I can drop you off in my car” Carding said.
“Is fine, I can go home on my own, it was nice meeting you” Paige said and took to her heels.
“Wait Miss I…. I didn’t even get a chance to know her name” Carding mutttered and sighs.
“Carding” Someone called his name and Carding turns to see his Dad’s driver.
“Where have you been Carding?” Philip asked.
“I was just around the corner” He answers.
“Where’s your phone? Your Mom called a million times”.
“I left it in my backpack, is she that worried?” Carding asked worriedly.
“Yes but your Dad is even more angry at you…. He wants you home” Philip said and fear gripped Carding immediately.
THE CASTILLO’S HOUSE***
“Should we inform the police about this” Helena asked worriedly.
“Is not up to 24 hours, nothing will be done about it if we report it to the police…. They can only take action only when it has to do with those from higher class, not poor breeds like us” Greg said and continues galvanizing his Janitor’s uniform, getting ready for tomorrow’s work.
“But where could she have wander off to?” Helena asked worriedly.
“Have you forgotten she’s Paige, her legs doesn’t stay in one place, I won’t be surprised if she made someone’s problem her headache” Grey said.
“Am going out to look for her” Helena said and just as she opened the door, she sees Paige making an attempt to knock on the door.
“Paige!!!” Helena exclaims.
“Long time no see mom” Paige said with a smile, but Helena hits her instead.
“Do you want to kill me? I thought something bad happened to you”.
“I’m Paige, nothing bad can happen to me, Can I entered the house my feet is hurting from trekking all the way here?”
“Why didn’t you enter a cab?” Helena asked.
“Cuz is too expensive, I rather trek still am numb than enter a cab worth 50 dollars” Paige said.
“Anyway I missed you so much” Helena said hugging her.
“Me too Mom” Paige said smiling.
“I’mI being forgotten?” Greg asked.
“Greg!!!” She exclaims excitedly rushing to him, they did the hand shaking thing before hugging each other.
“Your all grown up now Paige” Grey said, and Paige giggles.
“I was at the company where you work cos I wanted to see you, but that grumpy man won’t let me in” Paige said.
“I’m working in one of the biggest companies in Chicago Paige, random people aren’t allowed there, and to top it all, am just a Janitor there” Greg said.
“But still they shouldn’t treat people that way… But leave that aside, am so happy to see the both of you again, whose in for Paige!!!!” Paige screams loudly.
“Do you want the neighbors to come after you?” Helena asked.
“They’d better get used to it cos anywhere Paige is, noise follows…. Whose the craziest of them all? Paige is the craziest of them all!!!” She screams loudly.
“Can you keep your voice down?” A neighbor said.
“You better get used to it, cos Paige is back!!!!” She screams.
“Someone is trying to read, Keep your voice down” Another neighbor said.
“Then you’d better go to the library and build a castle in there, cos am the synonyms of noise… Whose the craziest of them all? Paige is the craziest of them all whoahhh!!!” She screams loudly.
“I have no doubt that we’re going to be sent packing every soon” Greg said.
“I know right” Helena said.
“Hello everyone, Nations, universe, Neighbors, Crazy Paige is back!!!!” She screams.
THE WENDELL’S MANSION***
Carding sighs for the umpteenth times before entering the house and he met his Dad in the living room.
Fear boiled in his blood just by looking at him. Ever since he was a kid, he has always been trying his best to please the monster he calls Dad, but no matter how hard he tried, it was always pointless in his Dad’s eyes.
“D….Dad” He manage to talk, and Vince glared at him and the way he looked at him sends more fear to him.
Vince stood up from the couch and walks to him.
“Where have you been?” He asked.
And Carding crimps his fingers looking scared.
“Are you a book now? You can’t speak anymore, Where have you been!!!” He yells.
And Odessa who was in her room, heared his voice and quickly came downstairs.
“Carding” She muttered.
“I ask for the last time Carding, where have you been?!!!”
“I… I was with a friend” He stuttered.
“A friend?” Vince asked and threw a punch on his face, Carding falls to the floor.
“Carding!” Odessa calls him.
“You couldn’t even do a proper presentation at the company ealier, and you still had the nerve to hang out with a friend”.
“I’m sorry Dad” Carding apologize, but Vince punch him again.
“If you were going to be of bad luck to me, then you shouldn’t have been born, I wish I had gotten rid of you, when your mom became pregnant through wedlock!!!” Vince yells.
“I wish you had just gotten rid of me when I wasn’t yet born, maybe I won’t have to suffer like this” Carding said as tears keeps falling down his eyes.
“Maybe I should just get rid of you now, is better not to have any son, than have a useless son, born from wedlock” Vince said taking off his leather belt.
And without thinking twice, he began lashing the belt on Carding.
Carding groans in pains.
“Vince please stop, Your hurting him… Carding!!!” Odessa screams crying.
