Tears poured out of my eyes more as I watched my mum walk out of sight. I still couldn't believe all that was happening. She was finally getting what she needed. And I didn't spend a dime on it.
"Enough with the tears Elizabeth. It's getting uncomfortable." David finally spoke. That ego in his voice coming back to life. Making me think he was only nice when my mum was around.
He turned and began to take his leave also signaling me to follow him. I wiped my tears and followed him from behind.
I still had to thank him. I promised myself not to do anything to upset him for a while. Just do as he says. I opened my mouth to say something but then my phone vibrated, distracting my attention.
~Elizabeth~Facing the wall, I stood still. The voice that just spoke to me remained silent. And none of us said or moved a muscle till I decided to turn around.I really hoped and wished I was just hearing voices and that the person was not who I thought about. But when I turned and my eyes landed on the man, I knew I was not just hearing voices."Dad." My voice shook mentioning the word.He did not deserve the name, he did not try to ever act like the name my entire life. But I still called him that. Because when you think of it, he was my father.I held unto my loose shirt and buttoned it back on then wrapped my hands around myself so he doesn't notice my recently shaking hands.
~Elizabeth~His parents house? Why he even thought about bringing me here was still confusing."Why're we here?" I asked, my brows furrowing."Let's just go in." He insisted, still pulling me in.I had nothing to say, actually there was a lot to say, I was just too weak to start talking. So I just watched him pull me into the mansion."Mum?!" He called out and it echoed. The house was massive. The hall way had a grass carpet on the floor with blue and white wall and framed pictures decorating the it along with a giant chandelier at the center.The place was so beautiful, I began to wonder how the living room woul
~Elizabeth~I stood there. Frozen on the spot, my eyes wide as ever, my head blank with thoughts. His lips were on mine. He kissed me. I let him get too close and he kissed me. I felt tears sting my eyes at this thought.Then he pulled away, but I still stood still, not knowing what next to do. My eyes met his and a wave of fear hit me."Y...you kissed..me.." I trailed off as my body shook."I-i didn't mean to...Elizabeth I...""I decided to trust you just a little bit and...you...and you take advantage of me." I interrupted as a tear drop managed to slip down my cheek."What! No never...I didn't...""You kissed me." The tears now didn't stop pou
~DAVID~I had been so restless, nothing seemed right, everything felt disoriented, I wanted to fix it, both at home and work, nothing got fixed.How I wanted her to just show up in my office this morning and greet me, I wouldn't mind if she had her usual fake smile plastered to her face. I just wanted to see her again, to talk to her, and mostly apologize.The fact she didn't come to work without a notice should've normally pissed me off, but I remembered firing her last night.It was one long night.If I could repeat it, I would change so much about it and avoid all these complications I'm experiencing."Hey baby..." I snapped out
~MR ADEYEMI~FLASHBACK....I walked briskly into the bank, I had to deposit the bag of money given to me. It was big, but according to the person I was working for, it was little compared to what he had in store for me.My daughter was supposed to be here, with her boss, Badmus. According to what I heard. I was to quietly make her see me, without starting a conversation with her. And it was the easiest thing.She had so much changed, she looked more...mature, and a lot more confident. She looked pissed at a moment, probably had a bad day. But that expression didn't last long on her face, it changed immediately she saw me.It turned cold with fear.I pretended not to
~Elizabeth~"Make any funny movement and I'll shoot."That was the last thing I remembered. After that. Everything went black.I tried to move but my body didn't. That's when I figured I was tied down. My hands tied above my head and my feet on the cold floor.Almost too déjà vu.My head hurt so bad and my eyes were blindfolded."You're awake." I heard a masculine voice say and I stood still."W-Who are you? What do you want from me?!" I almost shouted hoping we were in an area where someone would easily hear me."S
~DAVID~"Help! I've been kid-"Just like that, the line got cut.I waited for a while, my brain processing what was happening, "What just happened?" Kelvin asked.I was as confused as he was.Her last words rang in my head all over again. What was it supposed to mean?Help...She asked for help...something was up..."David, what's wrong?" Kelvin asked again."She said help." I deadpanned............"We need to find her!" I demanded
~Elizabeth~"Yes, it's going according to plan." I heard Sandra say to her phone.After a while, she ended the call and turned to the two men with us."We're moving to phase two." She said and they nodded and left the room.It was all so confusing. There was a phase two? There were phases?!"What're you doing?" I asked her as she removed the sim from her phone and changed it to a new one."That shouldn't concern you." She replied."Look..""Shut up and do not tell me to look at anything!" She retorted immediately, cutting me off.
