Happy Reading Naijalandedier’s
“Home sweet home”!! I yelled in excitement as my mom opened the door to our house. My two besties laughed and my mom smiled as she ushered us in and close the door.
“I’ll prepare something for all of us to eat while Naomi go upstairs to freshen up”. My mom said and she entered the kitchen.
“I’ll help Mrs Rivers”. Betty said as she rushed into the kitchen with my mom.
“Thank you mom”. I yelled happily and Cassandra dragged me upstairs. She does that when she wants to gossip. We entered our room and Cassandra quickly jumped on my bed. Silly girl.
“So, what are your plans now”?? Cassandra asked looking at me intently.
“What plans”? I asked, removing my top and my trousers and was left with only my undies on me.
“Your plans of revenge. Or are you going to allow him to get away with what he did”? Cassandra asked
I heaved a sigh and went to drop my dresses on the laundry basket. Then I faced her.
“I don’t know what to do. I really want to get back at him for what he did”. I said clenching my fist.
“I can help you”. Cassandra said sitting up.
“There will be no need for revenge Naomi”. Betty said walking inside the room.
“But why”?? Cassandra asked looking pissed already. “He hurt our friend and he must pay”.
“He had already erased the video, stating that an unknown person who was jealous of Naomi posted that to tarnish her image. So everything is cleared up now”. Betty explained, giving us her phone for us to look at the news. It was true! The video had been erased. No traces of the video again. And an unknown person which I know it must be Alan said that the video was posted by someone who wanted to tarnish my image.
“So, no need of revenge. Just forget about him and move on with your life like you’ve never met with him before”. Betty said.
“That guys is a stupid jerk. I wished I could punch that his disgusting face”. Cassandra said looking irritated.
“His disgusting handsome face”. Betty said with a smirk and wink at Cassandra. I laughed. Well, I think I should forget about the issue of revenge and try to look for another job to help my mom.
Cassandra glared at Betty and began to chase her round the room. Silly girls. I entered the bathroom took my bath. I came out wrapping my towel on my body and went to the wardrobe. Betty and Cassandra looked busy with their phones as they had stop chasing each other.
“You girls should come down for lunch”. My mom yelled and they both scrambled out of the bed and rushed out. I’m not surprised. They are both gluttons. I reached for my white polo shirt and my bum short and I wore them. After I was done dressing, I combed my hair backwards and let it flow down. I don’t want to pack my hair in a pony tail. I went to the dinning table and found them already eating.
“You guys couldn’t wait for me”. I pouted and sat beside my mom.
“Wait”?? Cassandra asked sarcastically..
“Wait indeed”. Betty said and rolled her eyes.
I frowned my face and they all laughed. I hissed and began to eat.
I had just finished my work when my dad called.
Hello dad I said as I answered the phone.
Hello son. Come to my office right away He answered.
Why dad?? Is there anything wrong?? I asked feeling curious.
There is no problem. I just want to see u……..immediatetly He said
Ok dad I answered and hung up. Why does he wants to see me?? I asked no one on particular as a grab my car keys from the table and left my office.
I got to his office,as usual ignoring all the greetings from his employees. I entered his office and I saw him seated with my mom. What is going on??
“Hey Dad”. I greeted and went over to peck my mom.
“Hi son”. She said smiling at me and pulling my cheeks playfully. I laughed. She is the only woman who could make me smile. No one else.
I sat down on the sofa, facing my dad.
“Why did you call for me dad”?? I asked curiously.
“Well, is something that I had been disturbing you about. But since you don’t want to do as I want, I will do it for myself”. He said
I was confused. What is he talking about??
“What are you talking about dad. I don’t get it”. I said, sounding confused.
“Don’t worry son. You’ll see”.
Suddenly,there was a knock at the door.
“Come in”. My dad said. The door opened and my eyes widened as I saw my biggest nightmare. Stephanie!!!!!!!!!!! This can’t be happening. I looked at my mom and dad with utter astonishment but they just smiled at me. They fucking smiled!!!!!
I turned and looked back at Stephanie and she gave me a smile. A mischievous smile actually.
“Mom, Dad, what is this witch doing here”?? I asked getting angry already.
“I told you to get married quickly, but you refused. So here is your new wife”. My dad said and it feels like I had been shot in the chest. I’m done for!!
“Dad No, I can’t get married to this witch. I would never”!! I swore. I looked at her and she bowed her head looking very sad. But that was just an act. I knew her very well. She is a bloody witch.
“You will get married to her. Your wedding is next week Saturday so get that into your thick skull”. My dad said standing up angrily and my mom followed, wearing a worried look. I frowned and looked back at Stephanie. She was already crying silently but I don’t pity her one bit. She is wolf in sheep clothing. That’s what she is. God!!! What am I going to do??? I can’t marry her. Or else my life will be ruined forever. I made to leave but my father voice stopped me.
“If you don’t marry her, I will seize your property, your company and your inheritance and you will be as poor as anything”. My father threatened and my heart dropped. I know my father. He doesn’t make empty threats. I turned to look at him and he was looking at me, angrily. My mom opened her eyes in shock and fear.
“Honey you can’t do such a thing…….” My mom tried to say but my dad cut her short.
“Advise your son Hellen. Talk sense into him”. He said and sat down on his king sized chair, looking at me intently.
My mom walked towards me and place her hand on my shoulders and her other hand on my cheek.
“Son, please do what your father said. You can’t afford to lose what you have”. My mom said to me with a pleading eye.
“The investors won’t grant your father access if they are not sure that he would have an heir. That is why he wants you to get married. Even if it’s just for a short time, so that the investors can grant your father the contract. We can’t lose this contract son. Please……” My mom begged.
I sighed. This is going to be tough but I have an idea. I hope it works.
“I’ve heard you father. But please just give me one week to get my wife myself. This is a life time commitment we are talking about here. If I don’t get my wife within one week, I’ll marry Stephanie”. I said, praying in my heart that he would agree.
I looked at Stephanie and she had a bewildered look. I smiled. I just pray my father accepts.
“Four days son. Four days. Today, tomorrow, on Sunday and tomorrow is the last day. Me and your mom is traveling tomorrow so you will come and meet us with your bride. Failure to do so, you will have to marry Stephanie.
My mom heaved a sigh of relief and I smiled. But the look on Stephanie’s face says otherwise. But I don’t care. I will never get married to her.
“Thank you dad”. I said. I pecked my mom and left the office and zoomed off with my car. I’ve got work to do.
I was in the sitting room watching my favorite TV show, telenovela. My mom had gone to the restaurant and I was the only one at home. Suddenly, I heard a knock at the door. Strange!! Who could that be??
“Coming”. I answered as I sluggishly stood up from the sofa and went to open the door. As I opened the door, I opened my eyes in shock and horror as I saw………….Mr CEO!!!!!!!!!
You guys are so funny!
I’m glad you all love the story!!
