I was so angry at Anabelle but I had to conceal it from Tara so that it would not ruin our lunch date.
After the date, I dropped her at the foundation and drove to my father's mansion instead of going back to the company....
I hoped and prayed that he would be at home.
I arrived there some hours later and drove into the compound, his car was there.
"Thank goodness, he is at home." I thought to myself
I pressed the door bell and nanny Mercy opened the door.
Nanny Mercy had been my nanny since childhood. She was like a mother figure to me ever since I lost my mother and I love and cherish her.
Rumour had it that her step-mother cast a spell on her which cause her inability to get any suitors not to talk of getting married.
"Oh, nanny, good afternoon," I greeted smiling&nb
TARA'S POVI woke up with a throbbing headache, thanks to the girls out I had with Cas yesterday.I got up from my king-size bed and kissed my teddy bear. Childish?, yeah... But I really love teddy bears.I did my prayers and went to the bathroom to freshen up. I left the bathroom some minutes later and wore a blue tank top with a black mini skirt and went to the kitchen.I poured myself some quantity of cornflakes with moderate milk and sugar. I added water and ate it before I took the paracetamol.I left the kitchen for my room to pack the things I will be needing at Ikorodu for the weekend. After I packed it, I took a broom to sweep the house.Having satisfied with the chores, I went to the bathroom for a cold shower. I wore a blue strapless gown and marched it with a pair of black sandal.I sprayed my Nautica perfume and took
ERIC'S POVI laid on my bed while surfing the internet. I had called Pamela earlier today to inform her of my absent to work since my schedule is empty.I stumbled on a post about Tara. Just then my mind went to our phone call in the morning. I smiled as I thought about it."So awkward."I decide to order a banquet of red rose with some chocolate bars to make up for the awkward discussion.As soon as I placed the order, I went to the bathroom for a shower. I wore a casual Tee with a black trouser for the family dinner and drove out of my mansion.I arrived at my dad's mansion two hours later. I pressed the doorbell while nanny Mercy opened the door."Nanny," I said half postrating"Olaitan, how are you doing?" She asked smiling"Am fine ma, what about you?""Am o
THIRD PERSONAs soon as Eric untied Tara from the chair, Anabelle appeared."Wow, look who we have here, Mr lover boy," She said pointing the gun at Tara"Anabelle, please drop the gun," Eric plead"And why should I drop it?" She fired back.... "Now that you are here, I finally thought of something. Making Tara suffer by watching me kill you first will be best before killing her," She said smiling mischievously as she pointed the gun at Eric"Anabelle, please don't do anything to Eric, am the one you had business with, leave him out of this," Tara said weaklyAnabelle's laughter filled the whole room as Tara begged her"The witch can still talk," She said still laughing"Anna, please don't pull the trigger," Eric beggedBut it was too late, as she pulled the trigger. Eric clo
ERIC"What!"That was the only thing I said before my phone fell off my ear. I was shivering and at the same time sweating. I don't know what to do, whom to call or what to say."Sir are you okay?" Pamela voice brought me out of my thoughtsHave totally forgotten I had a company in the office."You can go now," I said as calmly as I canI watched how she left my office without uttering another word.I paced up and down the office without knowing what to do. I couldn't call her parents now. I picked my phone from the floor to call my dad.Luckily for it, it didn't have any scratch but that was the least of my concern. I dialled his number and he picked almost immediately."Dad," I said"Son, what is the matter, why is your voice down?" He asked wit
ANABELLEIt's almost two weeks that I had Tara kidnapped. Though I haven't been to where she was because of the cops but I had cleared my name, thanks to my influential dad.I decided to go pay her a visit at my dad's warehouse. I got there some hours later. I parked my car some distance away to avoid easy recognition, then I trekked to the warehouse.I met one of Sharp Shooter guys, who was securing the entrance. He hailed me and I gave him some money."Where is your boss?" I asked"He is inside with the prey," He replied"Okay." I said smilingI went inside and met Tara with Sharp Shooter. She looked so unkempt and pale."Mama," He hailed me"Uhm... Thanks for the job well done," I said smiling"You welcome," He said&nb
ERICI prayed silently to God to save Omotara throughout the ride to the hospital. We arrived at the hospital premises and the nurses in the ambulance wheeled Tara inside the hospital while I followed suit."Mr Olaosebikan, you aren't allowed to move further than this." One of the nurse said stopping meI stayed back at the reception while I watched my Eve being wheeled to the operating theater. I signed all the required documents.I called her parents and informed them about the outcome of things and told them the address of the hospital. I called my dad also and her friends.Hours later, the doctor came out of the operating theatre and I walked closer to him."Doctor, how is Omotara?" I asked"She is out of danger now but she slipped into coma after the operation. The bullet hit her stomach but thankf
TARAThe expected day have finally arrived. My wedding day, the day I will finally become Mrs Olaosebikan. It felt like yesterday when the date was picked after we had our introduction.I was so exhausted. I didn't get enough time to rest because my bridal shower was done till late in the night. And my beautiful sleep was disturbed by the yelling of my MUA(Makeup Artist)."Who sleep on her wedding day duh..." My inner mind chided meI had to get ready on time though, if I don't want to be late for the wedding since the church service is scheduled for 9am.All through the makeup session, I was nervous and at the same time happy. The girls were there to make me laugh with their numerous gists.Speaking of the girls, Cassandra was my chief bridesmaid, while Rose, Pamela, Catherine and my cousins from the maternal side(Arabella and Isabella) were my b
A/N: This chapter will be only in Tara's POV. And most of the songs are Nigerian music so apologies to my non Nigerian readers.We arrived at Caritas event centre some minutes later. The event hall was decorated with wine colour and some mixture of champagne gold and white.The venue screamed money and that have always been my dream since I was young. To find my Prince Charming, get married in an expensive way and live happily ever after.I smiled at the childish thought as I alighted from the vehicle that conveyed my husband and I."This is the time we have all been waiting for," The MC voice blast from the sound systemThe bridal trains were all inside the hall, excluding Eric and I, waiting for the grand entrance. I was so nervous and I couldn't help looking at Eric. He gave me a light kiss and a reassuring smile.
