"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'
AVAI moved towards the door that led to the stairs and he followed closely behind."Listen, I know you were just trying to help Isabelle and all but don't you think you're driving a little too fast ." I told him when I stopped by the stairs.It's not like I'm trying to pry into his private affairs and letting my insecurities get the better off me but I don't know how possible it is for someone who just got out of atwo year old relationship to move on so quickly like Isabelle is doing. She must be really strong to let go that fast.He sighed and shook his head "I know what I'm doing Ava, I really like Isabelle. I thought you'd be supportive on this." He said very sadly, it made me gulp and feel a pain in my throat.I felt my eyes threatening to water by what he had said, b
AVAI walked back to where I had left Helena and Isabelle but couldn't find them so I walked out of the boutique and towards the parking lot to find them.They might have waited too long in the store for me to return and must have gotten tired and decided to wait in the car.I got to where my car was parked in the midst of other cars in the parking lot to find out there was no one in it and the doors were still locked.I was about to reach for my phone in my hand bag when I remembered how I had left my bag with my phone in it on the chair I was sitting on in the boutique and left hurriedly to meet up with Ciara.Frustrated by the fact that I wasn't with my phone, I turned around to go back into the boutique in search of them when I saw Helena at the entrance of the boutique holding two big shopping bags in her hand. What more could she have bought?.
RYAN"Helena, Ryan is apologising for what he did, how he reacted." Adrian begged her.I made Adrian ask her over the phone if she was at home this evening since she's usually at home by now. She has been avoiding me like a plague since the day of that incident and it was all because of Ava. I have done everything possible to make her listen to me or forgive me but she wouldn't do any of that.When we rang the doorbell, she excitedly opened the door for us thinking it was just Adrian and Gwen, she smiled at them so happily but once her eyes found me, she slammed the door in our faces. It took a miracle for her to open the door for us because we knew how unruly she could be, we used the only mutual thing we had with her to get her to open the door, Adrian's deteriorating health.We used the front door intercom to remind her of Adrian's health and she came running to the door, opening it immediat
AVA If I had been told by anyone that being a CEO was so demanding, I'd have laughed so loud in the person's face. Honestly, it's nothing like what I have seen in the movies or books that I've read. This is a whole lot of work. It's like doing your job and at the same time doing that of the entire departments in the company. I've been working relentlessly to put the company back on its feet. It was once the highest event planning company in the country. That rank had lasted for so many years until the year my dad passed away. "Good evening, Ava," Tracy said, walking into my office. "Have a seat," I replied, smiling at her. "I was wondering if I could talk to you about something," she said, after she was seated "Sure, what is it about?" I asked, putti
RYANIt felt good taunting her, watching her try to act all tough and break down in front of me.It gave me some kind of satisfaction to watch how much my words got to her.When I left her office after she threatened to call in the security, I couldn't stop myself from going back to her office and causing her more pain.So I went back having nothing to say until the random idea about her planning my wedding with that Ciara girl and that blew up in my face.I was pretty annoyed by the way Ava turned the game around and I was bent on making her pay for that.I drove my car out of her company's premises and parked it in a corner where she wouldn't be able to spot it.Soon, I saw her drive out of the compound and followed her car. My plan was to know exactly where she lived until she stopped in front of a club
