Back in the conference room where the documents were being signed and the transition ongoing, the event was interrupted by a live video on the screen. Richard wanted to prove to his father that he could separate Tony from his newly wedded wife in just a few minutes therefore, everything happening in the garden was being played. He had forgotten to turn off the secret camera when things began moving antithetically.
Now, everything had turned in Abigail's favour. His shame was displayed in the open. As the saying goes, when you throw a ball against the wall, it will bounce back to you. Tony had left to the garden at a stroke, while Ivy took over the remaining details. Isaac tried to keep the media in check but he seemed to be failing terribly since they kept following Tony secretly till he stopped a little away from the pair.
"You chose this dog over me?" Tony asked Ashley in a cold - bitter tone. Everyone in the dining room hushed. They were eager to hear Tony's response to Richard and Ivy almost intervened to prevent her son from taking a bizarre decision.Yet, it would be a humiliation to Tony if she did. He would be seen as being babied by mama at age thirty. Whereas after swearing-in Tony as the president, she debunked involving herself. This was between two elites proven responsible enough to take tough decisions.The Woods family were always known to be the butchers, cutting without minding where it hurt. All that mattered was for power to be transferred to them.The corner of Tony's lip curled into a mischievous grin and he stared at Richard like a clown. All his opponent's plans sa
"Otherwise? That you feel something for me? No. I won't even dream of it," Abigail expressed with certainty. It wasn't the first time Tony spoke irrationally to her. She ignored him yesterday but was prepared for a throwback this time. She was on a mission that could only be accomplished if she earned his respect. She wasn't going to be his doormat. She did him a favour and his mother paid her father's medical bills. Now she was stuck until he let go of those chippies. If that doesn't happen, then she had to say bye-bye to freedom. Her cheeks turned blood red in embarrassment and she didn't swallow it at this moment. "In order not to have any ideas, I will prefer to have dinner at home," she said gently but her demeanour carried determination.Her gentle voice did great in hiding the anger boiling inside her as she ordered the driver, "please take me to the villa." Tony saw her attitude to be bossy. Two captains cannot Mann the same ship. His teeth were
Tony felt an unavoidable headache, being caught on the spot. If it were an emergency, he wouldn't mind carrying her because she was as light as a feather but the girl was fit with two legs. His resistance was duly based on the suspicion that Abigail was trying to seduce him, recalling what she said to Richard that an acquaintance if nurtured could grow into love. He wasn't buying that. If he didn't like her at first sight, then it wasn't going to change but the girl was outsmarting him and her wit was becoming more and more extreme. Nevertheless, if she was planning to make him fall in love with her, then she could continue dreaming because that wasn't going to happen. With a clenched jaw, he stepped forward and attempted to lift her into his arms but Abigail took a step back, soaking him in a slush of confusion. "Your face looks scary. Can you smile a little?" Her voice was soft and pure,
What Tony didn't know was, Abigail had no intention of forgiving him easily but when she stormed out of the car and began walking away, she caught sight of a man in black with a camera. He was covered with the darkness but Abigail quickly made him out, which was the reason she kept putting Tony in the spot. Her only intention was to protect Tony's image, especially after everything that happened earlier. If the media portrayed them as the perfect couple, it would shine Tonys' integrity. Whereas her behaviour tonight from Tony's perspective was flirtatious, therefore, he didn't believe her. Yanking her by the waist just before she took another step, he snarled, "don't try to cover up the fact that you are into me. It's nothing to be ashamed of," he smirked. For as long as he knew, he was good looking and wealthy. Everywoman loved him and Abigail wasn't an exception. Abigail sighed, gently pushing him away and said, "don't believe me, why not check the newspapers on Mo
'President Tonys' little wife flaunts her wits at the inauguration ceremony' - A picture of Tony smiling with Abigail beside him, facing the media was added to the caption. 'President Tony chooses his ex over his wife'- A picture of Abigail, Tony, Richard and Ashley in the garden were added. 'President Tony shows his true colours' - A picture of the misunderstanding during dining was added. The last caption was what shook him to the core. 'Is President Tony in love with his little wife?' - A picture of him carrying Abigail in his arms was attached. From the smile on their faces, no one could tell it was forced. The details went on to question whether President Tony got over his ex so soon. It seemed a bit too early for him to move on but from the picture, they could tell that was the case. Checking the comment section, most people didn't believe it, relating it to a ploy to cover up the embarrassment he caused his wife. Haters will always be haters an
After everything Ivy had told Abigail, she couldn't bring herself to be upset. Rather, she felt something for him that she never felt before. Pity. Yes. It was sad inheriting such a crooked behaviour through the genes yet Abigail was far from giving up. Besides, what he just did will give her maximum respect from his employees. If he was going to be mean to her in secret and good to her in public, that was more than ample for her.She sighed and a flawless smile beautified her cute face. She wore no make-up and her skin was radiant. "Oh trust me, I won't dream of it. I just thought I should bring you lunch."All Tony imagined doing after she spoke, was trying to get into Abigail's head to find out what she was up to. Why wasn't she upset? She looked different today without makeup, carrying a youthful freshness that sparked an a
The out of ordinary ambience Tony at the entrance of Tony's office plucked the air out of his lungs when he arrived the next day. The walls from the elevator through the reception area to his door were given a purple tweet, in contrast to the boring white which had run through the company for years unending. A European style dark grey retro floor vase sat beside the visitors' sofa, stuffed with dozen artificial snowdrops and lily flowers.A cute chandelier hung above the visitors' sofa and the reception desk was enhanced with a small vase of orchid flowers. Above their desk hang a post-modern gold chandelier with a frosted glass orb, replacing the initial spotlights. An LED screen was opposite the visitors' lounge with entertaining videos.His secretary, Stan was equally lost for words as to the time and reason for the changes. They weren't there when they left last night. Tony was in for an even greater surprise when he entered his office. If he hadn't unl
"Oh, my, Abigail, which restaurant made this?" Isaac moaned at the taste of the food and asked. Abigail, flattered by the compliment, blushed at where she sat on the sofa, trying her best to avoid the two men but now she was pulled back again into talking."I made it," she mumbled."What?" Isaac exclaimed, mouthful. Most people winded away from the traditional M City style of preparing the creamy chicken pasta soup, inculcating modern ingredients but Abigail stuck to the original ingredients but only changed the cooking style. If she had been mistreated for so long, the good part was, it transmitted her improvising skills since she was always forced to do the cooking."Tony, is that correct?" Isaac screamed, not believing it. All he imagined was Abigail buying th
