Although we had a massive washing machine at home, I wondered why my stepmother made me wash clothes every day with my bare hands. I felt like she was just punishing me but yes, she was punishing me. Punishing me for being my dad's favorite and taking the place of her daughter. That's all in the past now, my Dad is now a part of the witch's gang.
As I paid attention to "Fix You" by Coldplay" on the radio. I wondered if there was someone that could fix me. It is one of my favorite songs to listen to every morning. I'd say it gives me some sort of hope and inspiration. I began to sing the song:
"When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
And high up above, or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try, you'll never know
Just what you're worth"
Somehow, I believed my Mom was watching over me, and soon, all my pain and days of torture would be over!!
Almost done with the washing, I recalled it was time to go babysit Evans. When my Dad and step Mom leaves for work, I babysit Evans and work as a waitress in a restaurant. I run these two shifts and head back home immediately before they get back. Or else, I'm in deep trouble.
One day, they both came back home and I was nowhere to be found. I had gone to babysit Evans. By the time I got home…. I was severely dealt with. A hot iron was used on my back and I still have a scar to show for it…
Back to the present, I dried the washed clothes. I headed to my bedroom, took off my dress, and gazed into the mirror. I couldn't believe my eyes. The scars on my back were terrible and dirty. I felt less confident and ashamed. What a wicked world!! I cried…
After having my bath, I dressed up in a semi-long gown and a jean jacket. I was pretty, curvy, and sexy, but those scars…
On my way to Evans house, I stopped at a shopping mall to buy chocolates. Every child has a sweet tooth and Evans is not an exception. I spotted a lykan hypersport packed outside the garage. Hold up, I've seen this exact car twice! In my dream and at the traffic light the other day…
I rushed in to buy the chocolates and headed back outside. I was so curious to see the woman who owned the car. She must have lots of money, I thought…
After 3 minutes of waiting, a young man and his driver's head in the direction of this pretty-looking car. The driver held the car open for the young man to enter. Damn, I've never seen a man so beautiful. The young man looked terrifying but tall and handsome. He had dark, shiny, and full hair. His eyes were blue, almond-shaped, and had a radiant sparkle. His wrestler's shoulder perfectly complemented his Spartan physique. His movement was tiger-like. It seemed like he possessed a latent, leonine power or he was filled with purpose and authority.
Who was this man??
Oh, Lord!!! What's the time? Evans will be home alone waiting. I zoomed out of my thoughts and began to walk fast, all the way to Evans…
Good afternoon Mrs. Clinton, I greeted Evans mother.
Hello Kharis… You are ten minutes late. I was just about to head out. Mrs. Clinton said.
Yippie!!! Miss Kharis… Evans came at me with a hug…
Hello Evans, I'm so sorry I'm late. How are you today ….
"I am doing great, thank you", was the happy response I got from the little kid…..
After our session, I began heading to the restaurant for my last shift for the day. I am a waitress at a famous restaurant in New York. Its small, classic, and delicious meals are served there.
I quickly changed into my waitress wear and commenced duty. Despite all the trauma I went through at home, I always wore a smile when serving customers at the restaurant…
Three men and a lady came into the restaurant. Guess who I saw !!!. The fine man at the shopping mall. As I assess myself, Natasha, another waitress, pushed me and said, you'll never please him. I've seen the ugly scars on your back!!
Damn, that hurt me badly!!! I shrugged and went ahead to take their order!!!
Hey Kiel, I sighed as I spoke to my best friend on the other side of the line….
Tasha, I, and Leo are down here waiting for you!!, He announced...
What the hell, Kiel, I responded. I'm not done with work and I have an important meeting soon. You all have to come back later…
No man!! He answered back. You need to have some fun in your life. We are just driving down for dinner. Bring your ass and debit card down here.
Okay. I'll be there in 10 minutes. I dropped the call. I needed to go out. I have been thinking hard about this marriage arrangement with an unknown woman!!
I left the office and joined my friends. We drove to a small and classic restaurant in New York.
A waitress walked shakingly to our table. She came to take our order.
Hmm, I recognize this face!!! I whispered to myself. After trying to recall where exactly I met the pretty and innocently looking waitress, Ah Ah, a smile formed on my lips.
It's the lady who kept staring at my lykan hypersport like she could afford or own it…
He had a terrifying and impatient look on his face. It seemed as though he was uncomfortable or forced to come to the restaurant. I lost all form of confidence as I walked to their table. I kept looking at him, and then, I saw him smile…
I did see him smile!!! I couldn't embarrass myself. I began walking confidently to their table.
Good evening and welcome. What can I get you Sir, Ma'am?? And then I handed out the menu
Hi, I'm Kiel… one of the men said to me… I'll have just a pastrami sandwich.
I'll have a burrata pizza slice, said the second man…
I'll have a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich declared the lady…
I turned to look at the young man who stole my heart. He was also looking at me. What can I get you, Sir, I asked him?
I'll have a bottle of wine, any of your favorites!!!
I began to think! Any of my favorite wines? What do I know about wines!!!
After serving their order. I realized it was time to go back to hell. I hurried back home. Thankfully my Dad and Stepmom were still out. I ran a warm bath for myself and spread my body inside the bathtub, daydreaming about this young man!!
I looked at the pretty lady while she took my friend's orders. She seemed happy and excited.
She turned to look at me and asked, what can I get you, Sir? I answered I'll have a bottle of wine, any of your favorites!!!
After a few minutes, she came with a bottle of Ravine Chardonnay…
Hmmm, I thought. I'll rate her choice of wine sixty percent.
After we all had our meal… Leo and Tasha were the first to leave the restaurant. Since it was just myself and Kiel, I decided to talk to him and seek his advice on the matter at hand- my arranged marriage with Ivy.
Okay man, I have a plan. Kiel spat out.
I hope it's a good and responsible one? I say...
So here is what you are going to do. Agree to Marry Ivy. You can decide to be an unfaithful husband. After two years, you can file a divorce. Kiel said.
That's your plan? I asked
Yes, he answered….
I couldn't help but laugh. Ivy is a spoiled brat. The bitch lacks manners. And trust me, I do not want a woman that cannot cater to every one of my desires. I can't even imagine myself fucking her. I'm not in love with her, man. I said to Kiel with 100 percent seriousness.
Can't you just save your family business by just marrying the girl? Kiel asked.
I took a deep breath and at out a sad 'I don't know.'
Ma Cleopatra POVGood morning Ma Cleopatra, it's Lauren Hudson, Frederick's mother."Oh, Christ! Good morning Ma'am. How may I help you?"Please cancel all of Frederick's plans for today. Ensure he doesn't leave the house. I'm counting on you…Ma Lauren, that'll be a hard task. I'm sure your son has lots of business plans to attend to today. He is asleep right now, I suggest you start coming right away.Okay, Cleo. His father and I are on our way. We'll be having breakfast there. Thank you.I hope everything is okay, I say to myself and head to the kitchen to fix breakfast for Hudson's family.Fredericks POVA loud banging on my door woke me up from sleep. I picked up my phone and it was just 8:06 am. For crying out loud, it's a Saturday…Ma Cleopatra, what do you want!! I begged!!!I didn't get an answer and that was strange. Soon after, the loud bang continued. I got up lazily and staggered to the door. Guess who greeted me with a frown!!Good morning Mom, what are you doing here?W
FREDERICK povAs I got to my study room, I picked up my favorite book, "How to win in the sport of business" by Mark Cuban. I had already gotten to the third chapter and figured I should go on with it if I wanted to sign off on the business deal with Giveon Ventures. After reading for one hour, I realized I had not heard Ma Cleopatra's voice after my parents and Ivy had left.I dropped the book and headed downstairs to search for Ma Cleopatra. I found her cleaning up the dishes and moved forward to ask what I was having for dinner.What would you love to eat, Fred? Ma Cleopatra inquired!I wouldn't be having dinner Cleo, I answered after being silent for a while. I figured I should go out to eat, to just clear my head. And going alone would have been a great idea. Having Kiel or Tasha around was inevitably a bad idea. What I needed at the moment was a chance to think and make the right determinations.I walked upstairs to have a quick bath. As I took my bath, a picture of the innocent
Kharis PovIt was almost 4 pm and lots of things had happened in one day… I received a slap and scar for the first time on my face, went for a photo session, almost headed to the grocery store, met the man who stole my heart and met a woman who made me feel less attractive.Anyways, I rushed to the Clintons' mansion to drop off Evans so I could get to the restaurant on time. While on my way, I remembered I didn't go grocery shopping. Sighing, I muttered "another day of torture".Mrs. Clinton had not paid me yet and by the time she must have paid, going grocery shopping would land me in loads of shit.Is everything okay? Evans asked me...I'm sure he must have noticed the frown on my face and heard the constant hissing from my lips.I'm fine baby, I answered the little boy.We approached the mansion and Mrs. Clinton still hadn't gotten back yet!!! How was I supposed to go to the restaurant? I used most of the cash in my purse to buy lunch and pay the cabman. I didn't have enough to get
