A BABY FOR BILLIONAIRE KNOX
(THE CLUMSY MERMAID)
THEME: Beauty of the media
Betty Lawson pressed the doorbell outside Martin’s family home. The door opened and she was welcomed by a maid whom she recognized to be Rachel. "Good morning, Miss Betty.” Rachel greeted cheerfully.
"Good morning, Rachel.” Betty replied as she walked into the luxurious living room. “Where is Mrs Elaina?" She asked.
"She is in her bedroom." Rachel answered.
"Please tell her I am around.” Betty sniffed.
Rachel motioned towards Mrs Elaina’s bedroom and she knocked on the door softly. "Ma'am, Miss Betty is here to see you.” She said.
"Oh Betty!" Mrs Elaina said happily. She was preparing for her friend's birthday party. "Please tell Betty I will be out soon.”
"Okay ma’am.” Rachel replied and walked away.
Mrs Elaina Martins added blush to her cheeks before turning away from the mirror and she moved out of her room. She hoped to hear good news from Betty concerning Knox’s birthday plans.
"Betty?" Mrs Elaina called.
Betty turned to face Elaina and she gasped in shock at the look on her face. "Oh my God Betty! What is wrong with you?" the old lady gasped out.
Betty’s face was swollen from tears. She had cried all the way from Knox’s beach house down to his family home. "Knox -" Her voice trailed and she swallowed hard to get the lump pass her throat.
"What did he do to you?" Elaina demanded with the worried look on her face.
“He..he..he..” Her voice broke off
"No..please don't tell him my son hit you." Elaina said.
Betty didn't respond and all she did was cry. "Wait..let me get my purse. I will go to his house right now and talk sense into his head... and I better call the cops on him too.” Elaina said, annoyance clear in her tone.
She was almost leaving for her room when Betty spoke up. “No don’t call the cops, Knox didn’t hit me.” Betty wiped her tears with her fingertips.
Mrs Elaina Knox heaved a sigh of relief. “Then what is it?”
"Mrs Elaina..I am just here to tell you that..I want to give up on Knox. I will try to stop loving him.” Betty sobbed.
Mrs Elaina stared at her in shock. "Give up? Why? Why do you want to give up on him?”? Why the sudden change of mind?" She went to Betty and pulled her to sit on the couch.
"Knox doesn't loves me." Betty mumbled.
"No Betty, you are wrong. Knox loves you.” Mrs Elaina held her hands.
Betty shook her head in disagreement. "No he doesn't -"
Elaina interrupted her. "Did Knox spill it out that he doesn’t love you?” she asked.
"No he didn't tell me that he doesn’t love me.” Betty replied.
Mrs Elaina shot her a confused look. "So what Betty? Knox didn't tell you that he doesn't love you, but you just jump into conclusion?”
“I can feel it that he doesn’t love me. It’s like Knox doesn’t want to love anyone.” Betty expressed.
Mrs Elaina heaved a sigh. "Listen Betty, I know it is hard to tell his feelings but as his mother I can tell you that Knox loves you. He is only trying to act tough.” She explained in a calm voice.
"I don't think so. Betty objected to the fact that Knox loves her.
"Tell me the reason Betty." Mrs Elaina requested.
"Last night Betty asked me to stop caring about him.” Betty started off but soon stopped talking.
“But you spent the night at his place, why can you just seduce him or do something to make him crazy about you? I am sure my son is not an impotent.” Mrs Elaina pointed out.
“I did everything but he told me to just spend the night and leave this morning like I am a piece of trash." Betty explained.
"Did you sleep in his bedroom?” Elaina asked.
"No he left me in the living room and he avoided me this morning. Mrs Elaina, I tried getting him to talk to me but I ended up getting insults from him.” Betty sobbed.
"He insulted you?" Mrs Elaina furrowed her eyebrows.
"Yes..he said my face is too thin and my body doesn’t look good and everything makes me ugly. And he also said that I wasn't good enough for him...” Betty sobbed uncontrollably.
"What?! Knox said that to you?! He body shamed you!" Mrs Elaina froze up.
"Yes..I went straight to the room and packed my box to leave and he didn't even try to stop me. Instead he waved me goodbye and told me to never come around again.” Betty buried her face in her palm.
"Unbelievable!" Mrs Elaina covered her mouth.
“Knox doesn't love me.” Betty mustered.
Betty had spent close to ten minutes in the car crying because of Knox's words to her. It pained her that Knox doesn't feel the same way she feels for him. She loved him dearly but it was so obvious that Knox doesn't have a hint of feelings for her. He doesn't care! He was only concerned about himself.
“Hold on..Betty,” Mrs Elaina picked her phone on the table. She dialed his number and when he didn’t pick up anger crashed over her. "He is not picking my calls.” she said.
"I think I have to leave now, I am running late. I have to shoot a commercial by 12:00 p.m.” Betty wiped her face.
"Betty, I apologize on his behalf. I will go and see him and I promise you that Knox will give you a call and apologize to you.” Elaina gave Betty’s hand a small squeeze.
"Okay.” Betty nodded and stood up from the couch.
"Let me walk you to the door.” Mrs Elaina offered.
"Thank you ma’am.” Betty feigned a small smile.
A BABY FOR BILLIONAIRE KNOX (THE CLUMSY MERMAID) EPISODE FOUR THEME: Mother and son broken bond KNOX BEACH HOUSE Once again Knox moved to the intercom when he heard the doorbell. "What is she doing here?" He muttered on seeing his mother. He went back to the couch to grab his cellphone, her call came in almost immediately and he picked it. "Hey Knox! I know you are in there! Open the door!” She screamed in annoyance. Knox walked back to the intercom. "Old lady you can't tell me what to do, say whatever it is you here for on phone..I am listening.” He said in a calm voice. "What?!..Knox open up!" She hit the door. "I won't let you into my house to complain and nag and yell at me. I am too tired for all that and -" She cuts him off his sentence. "Knox, do you realize I am your mother and you clearly know what I am capable of doing. Don't be rude to me!" She shouted. "Old lady, I know what you are capable of doing to me. Remember it was easy for you to send your husband to hi

Minutes later the door opened and Oliver Scott walked in with a nurse behind him. Adella looked up at them, her eyes widened in surprise and shock when Oliver opened his eyes full and her breathe caught! Then she stared intensely at him while a smile played on his lips.

Doctor Oliver moved closer to the bed when she didn't respond to his uestion. "Can you hear me?" He asked. "Unbelievable! A human is talking to me!" Adella thought with a wide eye. Oliver held her wrist to feel her pulse and she was fine. Adella blinked severally. "Oh my sea! A human touched me!" She exclaimed within. Oliver placed his hand on her forehead and her temperature was normal. “Oh my sea! His hand is so warm.” She closed her eyes at his touch feeling his warmth.

The area was so busy as she walked on and her eyes kept looking around in excitement. She giggled at the sight of the people she saw on the streets. "What's your name?" She asked no one in particular. Five high school girls laughed as they passed by Adella. She studied them closely and she realized that she was different from them, totally different from most on the people on the street. They were neatly and nicely dressed like the ones she used to see those times she swam up to the beach . And to Adella she didn't care about her look instead it was an affirmation that she was truly in the human world and that she wasn’t just dreaming. "Yes! I am in the human world!"

My child has been gone for seven weeks now and you haven't done anything about it.” Alana cried. "You heard what Wanwisa said when she asked the sea, Adella is gone for now but the sea will bring her back whenever he needs her.” He answered. "When is the sea going to need her?" She asked. "I don't know my Queen.” He said in a rasp. "I want my child or else I will die.” She sobbed. He sat on her sea moss bed and stroked her face. "Alana, please accept the fact that Adella is gone for now, I need you to be with me. And please don't die before Adella returns back home.” He carressed her beautiful tail. "I want to see my child.

This is really cool!” Eretia exclaimed. "Can I try it?" She blinked her eyes severally. "You can't tell anyone the password okay?" He said. "Okay.” She replied. "Promise?"

A BABY FOR BILLIONAIRE KNOX (THE CLUMSY MERMAID) EPISODE ELEVEN Theme: Birthday Parties KNOX MARTINS BEACH HOUSE It was a cool Saturday morning, there was nothing much to do and Knox Martins climbed back into bed after a quick breakfast of bacon and eggs. He was about to plug in his earphones to listen to music when the doorbell jangled. Knox silently prayed that whoever was at the door shouldn't be his mother or Betty Lawson and at the same time he wondered who could it be? Knox hopped out of bed and slipped on his soft slippers which had the ears of rabbit. He moved out of the room to the living room. And Knox eyes widened in surprise when he saw the person on the porch through the video intercom. Mary Ann was there, looking beautiful as ever!
