I noted on his face that he seemed serious about the whole proposition, wonder what he wants to tell me?.
"What preposition, Alvin?". I asked idling to hear his explanation, so he says, "I want us to get married!".
"Wait what?". I Veered a step back listening to him, it feels like Alvin had forgotten that I cannot stand him at all, he has this way for bringing the worst in, in short, he's annoying.
"Look, Lisa, let me explain to us".
Like a wolf taking notice of his prey and when to strick, I listened to him, Alvin weaves his mouth open and blatantly sum up everything as it was an obligated marriage to him, that he gets married to me within six months and gets his inheritance, then within the slated month to together, he pays off the loan amount father took, before he died.
That wasn't a bad idea, after listening to him, I needed to get some time for myself and think because getting married isn't something that should be based on obligatory duties. Don't get me wrong, I love and value my family but getting married to a snob like Alvin, is like jumping into hell.
Thereafter, he offers to take me home, and the moment the same stopped at the front door, I took heed of a couple of people, carrying a plasma TV that bought.
"Mom, what's going on?".
I got into the house and saw mom and my sister busy arguing with a man in dark clothes, I watched mom negotiate dad's favorite table piece in the living room.
I cannot believe, mom could be able to sell dad's properties, but why?.
Eventually, Tori took heed of my presence behind her, she nudged mom sewing her eyes to me.
Lisa, before you say anything, I am only trying to save this house by selling a few things, we don't need anymore, to pay your father's debt".
Mom calmly looked, then please try to understand our situation kinda look, hence when I tried to speak up, dad's photo fell to the floor, veering our eyes the scattered pieces of his picture frame.
Is the dad not happy, about Mom's decision or is he trying to convey a message to us, we looked on when Alvin walks in and attained our attention.
"Everyone out?" He commands In a pissed-off mood, returning our eyes to him.
"Hey, what do you think you're doing?".
Mom rushed over to stop them from going, alongside was Tori.
I viewed quietly from the side and watched them banter about what's with each other, apparently when I decided to leave them and go to my room, Alvin blabs out to my hearing.
"I am getting married to Lisa".
I returned my eyes and noticed the look mom and Tori, "Is that true?" Mom asked idling for my response.
I fell my eyes to Alvin and saw how itchy his ears were, waiting to hear my response.
When I told him, I needed time to think, it passed through his ears and out the other."Look, mom, Alvin told me everything but I don't think I'll be marrying him". I answered back."Why?" Tori butt into the conversationA flabbergasted glare draped around my face the moment she lets out to me, it's as if they don't recall anymore that I cannot stand Alvin, and marrying him is something I haven't even given my consent to, minus the fact his offer is tempting.(Inaudible conversation)THE FOLLOWING MorningAfter getting dressed, I walked downstairs to the living room and walked in on, a man holding a briefcase in his hand.Tori walked behind and took notice of him as well, "who is he"? She asked as we both walked further attaining his attention."Good morning sir! How may I be of help to you?"
I had two options, it was either, I get married to Alvin or have my family on the streets and homeless, thus after weighing my options, I went with the first, by giving in to the demands of my mom, "fine!! I'll get married to Alvin and save the legacy of my father,".My words made mom happy, Tori rushed out and hugged me after paying heed to our conversation, somehow I felt that my life was going to change drastically, only time will tell, how it will.The same day, mom called Alvin home after informing him about my decision, he strolls in holding a piece of documents in his hands, ambling close to us."Good evening auntie" he greets mom and veers to Tori donning a weak smile, "good evening tori, how are you?" He asked taking notice of my presence behind."Hello, beautiful!" He smiles lovingly at me, mom noticed what happened and signaled I reciprocate his greets as well, "hello Alvin" I turned
Baby, how are you feeling! I am sorry for not coming soon earlier, I just found out what happened". She hugged me maintaining the same gloomy look on.Mom walks out of the kitchen and saw I have finally returned home, she shoots me a weak smile and veers her head toward auntie."Here's a glass of water, take it".Aunt Marrietta takes the cup and gulped down the cold water brought in my mom, she buffed out a deep breath and sat down on the couch.We all sat and waited for her to regain her lost strength, she buffed out a deep breath and veered trying to force a smile.I know deep down, aunt was hurting inside, and so were we, losing dad as not only changed everyone's life to mostly mine, I went from miss party Queen diva to miss I just lost my dad, head placed down to earth, trying to help her family kind of girl, indeed it was the only option that urged me to even think of getting marrie
Aunt and I shared a moment, but everything seems to weeder, when Tori walks in and Informed me that my attention was needed.We both walked out to the living room and took notice of a young lady staring profoundly at me, she tries to walks closer but mom drags her back."Hello! Liza heart, I have been wanting to speak with you!" The strange lady let's out to me.I veered closer donning a weird look, "who are you? I asked."My name is Carol and I would like to speak with you in private please!". She loomed her eyes around and I sensed she didn't want anyone to hear our conversation.Mom disapproved of her idea, but I was much curious about what Carol wished to speak with me about, I ran a weak smile and strolled out of the house with her.We walked a further and when she noticed we weren't being followed, I veered donning a straight face.
Alvin acted like the perfect gentleman in front of the journalists, he maintained his smile and continued dancing.After a while, we returned to the party!! He took me by my hands as we walked close to a man and a woman who veered back donning a smile."Hello, son!!! Who Is she?" The woman asked still smiling.Alvin shoots me a weak smile, held me tightly, and said, "actually mom, the lady here, is my fiancee". He says, as the glass from his mom's hands dropped down and scattered around."What!!! Is this a silly joke, Alvin because If it is, I'll beat you to a pulp".He veers and falls his attention to the man standing beside his mom, thus I figured if the woman is his mom, the man must be his father."Oh please dad!!! Don't try to scare me in front of the woman I love, and before you say anything, yes!! Miss Lisa heart is going to be my wif
The atmosphere changed, Mr. Ajay pulls out a stool and sat down, his eyes still diced on mine, he proceeds again, "now, how about we play a game, you tell me who you are and I tell you what and why all this is happening, no one gets hurts, we all leave happy.A curious look draped over my face, what the heck does he mean by such words, "look, Mr. Ajay, my name is Lisa and I am Alvin's fiancee". I affirmed to him, rather he shook his head and disproved, weaving a buzzer sound."Wrong answer, Missy!!! Now let's try this again, who are you, tell me the truth and if you try to lie to me the second time, I'll make sure that your family gets the result of your foolish decision!". He says still maintaining the same look at me.It finally came to me that he wanted to know the real truth and not the made-up one, thus I opened my mouth and said, "my name is Liza heart and I am the daughter to late Leonard and Alvin contracte
Somehow I managed to get myself free, I strolled out and found out, I was still at the mansion but was kept at bays length, you can say, it was a little cabin built separately from the mansion, luckily Alvin rushed out and sighted me from a far distance."Lisa!!" He attained my attention and ran to me. "What are you doing here!! I have been looking for you, I even thought you were kidnapped!!" He recedes donning a relief look on his face, if only he knew I was kidnapped by his very own stepfather."Am sorry!! I thought of having a stroll around the house, so I walked and found myself here!!".(I lied to him)Alvin shoots me a weak smile trying to read the interpretation I had on, receding with his words, "okay!! But next time, tell me before going anywhere, I don't want anything happening to you".A weak smile smudge on, "you do know I can take care of myself, I am a grown-as
I walked in and saw Tori peeking at the window, she immediately veers the second her eyes fall on me, "hmm!!! Young lady, ain't you supposed to be sleeping?" I donned a stitch fix at her.Tori retained her eyes to me and said, "yes but I was only waiting for your return" she says feeling enthusiastic to hear me speak."Really!!! Why? You do know, it's light's our after ten " I walked up to my room as she rushed in maintaining the curious look on her face."Yes sir, but tell me!!! What happened at the party, and don't you even think of kicking me out not without telling spilling the beans".Tori pulls me and sits me down on the bed, waiting to see my reaction.(After a few minutes of silence I finally spoke out to her hearing).(Inaudible conversation)"You see, that all that happened" I muttered after telling the entire truth to her, Tori p
