Should I tell her?
"Ava!!!" I heard Helena yell, startling me as the phone slipped out of my hand but I was quick enough to catch it.
"Ye-ye-yes," I stuttered, raising my head to look at her. She was looking at me with so much concern.
"I've called you so many times, what were you thinking? "
"Nothing really," I said, looking around at anything but her.
"Wow, you look beautiful in that," I said, trying to change the subject.
"Of course, I look beautiful in anything especially when you're not here," she said, rolling her eyes
"Are you OK?, you look lost, besides I'm not even putting on a wedding dress,"
I immediately looked at her and noticed that she really wasn't putting on a wedding dress.
"I'm fine, what I actually meant was that you'
AVAAnd soon, I came face to face with the stranger who had saved my life and that of Melissa three years ago.He was still stunned on seeing me and stopped in his track."You know Luke? " Noah asked, bringing me out of my train of thoughtsI nodded my head and cleaned the tear on my face as I smiled at Luke.He still looked the same just a little more older than he had been the first time I saw him.The tattoos on his body were still visible around his neck as the long sleeved shirt he was putting on failed to completely cover it up.He was still well built and I just noticed the striking resemblance between him and Noah.He looked few years older than Noah, his blue eyes were beautifully defined with thick brows.His stature was just a times two of how
AVAIt was Sunday morning. I and Melissa were alone at home and I think we are the only two in neighbourhood that weren't in church.Standing up from the bed, I moved to the bathroom. I needed to take my bath before Melissa wakes up.There were many things to do around the house.I had to get the laundry done, the bathroom floors scrubbed, and also teach Melissa some new shapes, it's been long since when last we did that.The kitchen was pretty clean and so were the utensils, thanks to Isabelle.After I was done taking my bath, I threw on a blue tank top over a black shot.Holding up my hair in a messy bun, I walked out of the bedroom carefully so as to not disturb Melissa even though she was quite a heavy sleeper.She'd lay on the bed like a log of wood and may make no move if the house were to be o
AVAI have not spent time with Melissa since on Sunday and it's Thursday already..I always leave before she's up in the morning and return when she's asleep.My poor baby maybe thinking I'm running away from her and here I am facing yet another challenge in my company."Listen to me Mr-the-CEO-is-just-but-a-lady, it will take me nothing to give you the boot if you fail to realize that you work for me and under me." I declared.I was angry at the fact that one of my employees has been slacking in his duties and going round the office discussing with other employees about how inexperienced I was in handling the company and how much I'm being affected by my gender.If one of them can start up a discussion like that, what will happen when they form a group and possibly turn rebel.I had Tracy schedule a meeting with the board the
AVA Breathing a sigh, I spoke "There's something you really need to know." "It better be good." Helena hissed, if looks could kill, I'd be six feet beneath right now. I cleared my throat and sat upright in my chair, I honestly want to tell her the truth, I feel like I'm making a mountain out of a molehill. I breathed a sigh and looked at her " Helena, I don't think I'll be free on that day." I stated as calmly as I could. She huffed and shook her head, "On that day, you say? " and I nodded my head in approval. Chuckling humorlessly, "You don't even know the day." she spat, making me realize that she hasn't even told me the day yet. Just when I thought she was done talking, she began lashing out ruthlessly at me. "What has come over you, Ava?, each time I mention something about my fia
AVA"Luke, I'm sure she's not the one you saw. " I told him while we were seated on the king sized bed in the guest room.The room had just a very simple yet sophisticated decoration with different paintings hanging on the wall, how come I've never noticed these things before now.I turned my attention back to Luke and he was still in a daze.He has been moody since he confronted Isabelle, I wish I knew what was going on in his mind.I had wanted to ask him the reasons why he thought it was Isabelle he had seen at the store but felt it was better not to ask."I don't trust that girl! " he spat, his words were sudden and made me jump in my position on the bed as this was the first time he had spoken since we entered the room a few minutes ago.I have never seen Luke act this way around anybody or even talk about anybody t
AVA I was about to say a few prayers because it could be the last time I ever opened my eyes, when I felt how calm the car had suddenly become. On instinct, I opened one of my eyes to observe my environment. The first thing that caught my attention was how close we were to the tree but still didn't collide with it. Gradually inhaling and exhaling, I tried to control my breath. I turned slowly to face Helena whose head was resting on the wheel with one of her hands above her head on the wheel. "Helena, I whispered, she turned her face to look at me, and gave me a sad smile before sitting up in her seat and resting her back on it. The wheel was wet and I immediately looked at her face to see that tears were streaming down freely from her eyes. That was when I noticed she had already unfastened her seat belt. I looked at the back se
AVA I was unpacking our shopping bags when I came across the different items they had gotten from the store and I couldn't help but ask them about it. "So, you both went out of your way to get different cake items for the birthday" I asked Helena and Isabelle who were making short notice invitations for the party in the sitting room, the first set of invites they had earlier made were already sent and not enough for the party. Helena looked over her shoulder to the dinning room where all the items had been scattered all over the table. "Yeah, she's my niece so I thought, why not just give her three giant birthday cakes on her third birthday, don't be sad if mine beats yours anyway. " she said with pride and a smirk on her face. She looked away from me and faced what she was working on. Isabelle raised her head to stare from me to Helena before raising her ha
AVA "What the hell? " They both gasped and jumped in fear, turning their heads to see me. "I'll go and check on the kids, I think Luke should be on his way now with Melissa." Noah said nervously before leaving. "What was that Isabelle, you and Noah? " I asked her and she fidgeted. "No-Nothing" she stuttered and I raised a brow at her, does she think I'm a fool?. "I've been standing here long enough to know that if I hadn't interrupted, you both would probably have had your tongues down each others throat." I said firmly and I think I saw a tear escape her eyes. I didn't know what to do when I saw the second one till she raised her hand to her face and cleaned the tears that were now streaming down her face. I immediately pulled her into a hug after sensing her distress. I'
