DELIA "Did he tell you anything? Is it a business meeting or what? I don't understand why I have to dress up this pretty to go meet some other person." I groaned. Levi and Javan were always up to something crazy and I was sometimes scared of them. "Stop speaking in my ear, sis. Just wait until we get to the meeting spot. You can ask the client yourself why we're going there." He said. I relaxed back in my seat because arguing with him was pointless. We got to a seven-star restaurant and boarded the elevator. To my surprise, we got to the last floor of the building. Javan told me to go on while he went down back. "Hopefully these guys aren't trying to sell me." I prayed as I clutched myself when a rush of chilly wind hit me. The place seemed empty until someone walked up to me to deliver a card. "Come forward," the card read. I smiled widely as I knew what was going on. He could have just said so in the first place. I walked forward and met a beautifully decorated table filled w
DELIA "I can't, babe. I have to go home and change first. Andrew needs a bath too. He ruined his clothes today and he can't sleep in them." I queried. Finally, he agreed with me. "But make sure you come back, okay?" He said and kissed me. "I will." I pinched his cheek and walked out with Andrew. Nobody had heard from Fallon, not even Levi's mother whom she came with. Hope she didn't kill herself somewhere. Or maybe she had gone home. Javan was still trying to locate her and hadn't reported any news to us yet. As I got down from the cab, my phone rang and it was Levi. "I just left five minutes ago. Missed me much?" "When are you coming back? Now?" "Not at all, in an hour or two." I headed for the apartment, smiling. I looked back and the cabby had driven away. "Come on, babe, don't do this to me," He begged. I laughed and just as I passed through the yard gate, I heard an explosion. My first instinct was to shield my baby. *****LEVII heard an explosion and then a scream foll
DELIA "Javan, you've gotten so lean. Is Levi stressing you out?" Mrs. Elrod exclaimed. She touched Javan all over to his dismay. Levi and I laughed at him while he frowned. "I'll make sure to spank his arse later, okay?" She smiled. "So, Delia," She faced me. I stopped smiling and put on a serious expression. "How did you meet my son?""I met him at College during our first year," I replied. "So, how came about Andrew? You two are not married and he never mentioned you to me." She expressed worriedly. "It's more or less a complicated issue. He will give you the details of everything you want to know. Right, dear?" I touched his shoulder and he nodded. He was still nervous but he should be the one to break everything to her since they were closer than any other person in the room. We were all having a good time when the door was opened harshly. We all turned to the rude intruder and found Fallon standing at the door. Her hair was quite messy and her eyes seemed red and heavy. W
DELIA I had a splendid time at the hospital with Levi over the weekend. He mustered up the courage and asked me out for real this time. The way he did it was funny and I ended up laughing up my energy. Who knew that the almighty Levi could be so nervous around me? I felt sad that I was leaving but I had to go to work. If I had listened to him and stayed throughout the week, the workload would have been too much on him whenever he resumed. I woke up early that Monday morning and prepared food for my boyfriend. He didn't like the hospital meals and he certainly didn't want to eat outside. So, yeah, it came down to making food for him. I also made the one that could last for Andrew till evening and I went to the hospital. "Good morning," I greeted as I stepped in."Good morning babe," He reciprocated. His eyes were on the screen of his laptop, probably trying to do some work while in the hospital. "You shouldn't be doing this," I frowned and laid Andrew beside him. "I can't let you
DELIA I finally knocked on the door and when I heard a reply, I opened the door and walked inside. Levi's head was buried inside a book. I felt like crying. A few weeks back, he was lying almost lifeless but there he was, stronger and healthier. All thanks to the almighty for sparing his life. "Hi," I said. He must have thought I was a nurse or a doctor and that's why he didn't bother to check. But after I made my entrance recognizable by speaking, he looked away from his book. A smile was plastered on my face as I moved toward him. "How are you feeling today?""Better than ever." He replied. "Uhm... Here. I got these for you. Hospital meals are terrible sometimes and so, I got you a meal." I stretched the hug package toward him and he accepted it. "Thanks. You saved me yesterday with the meal you sent through Javan. Thanks again." He said and I smiled. I was definitely planning on toasting Javan after now. I specifically told him not to mention my name and just say the food wa
LEVI "Thank you all so much. I feel so loved." I touched my chest in gratitude. Seeing my employees visiting me when I'm not well was something to be grateful for. It proved that I was a good boss to them and what better than having a good employer-employee relationship at a place of work? "Thank you very much. I really appreciate the gifts." "Get well soon, sir. We miss you a lot." One of them said. I didn't spot two significant in the crowd; Evans and Delia. I knew Evans hated me and was probably sulking somewhere because I was still alive but what I didn't understand was why Delia wouldn't come to see me. To be honest, she was the first person I was expecting to see. Was it that she didn't care if I died or not? Soon after the celebration of my coming back to life, everyone except Javan left. I sighed, I was hurt by her absence. Why was she bent on killing me? Why did I even bother waking up? "Delia made this," Javan stretched a bag toward me. I stared at it for some seconds b
DELIA Every day was busy for me, coupled with the fact that I had to take care of a baby. It wasn't easy at all. At work, I had to do the job of a CEO and also work my position. If not for Javan who was always there to look after Andrew, I would have broken down. The printing of the book was around the corner and Levi was still not up. He was the key part of everything and his condition always kept me up. I had developed insomnia and it was getting worse every day. I don't get sleep and even if I try to sleep, I don't do it enough. I don't sleep more than two hours a day. I was drowning in the pressure. It's in over my head. I don't know why I thought I could do this. But still, I couldn't find myself stopping. I was doing it because of Levi. I didn't want him to think of anything work when he wakes up. All he needed to do was rest, rest, and rest. No stress is allowed in his zone. When Javan walked into the office, I looked at him with hopeful eyes but he gently shook his head.
DELIA "How is he?" I asked, sniffing at the end of my question. Andrew was playing with my dress, chewing the buttons on it but I didn't bother. Javan looked at me and sighed. "Be honest with me, Javan. Don't think about lying because I will still find out." "The doctor said he might not make it out alive." He said with a deadpan expression. "There were lots of alcohol in his system. He is almost as good as dead." I sighed heavily as fresh tears rolled down my cheeks. "He can't do this to me. This is all my fault." I wept bitterly. "No, no, don't think like that. None of this is your fault. He was just reckless. We should just pray a miracle happens and he comes out alive." "I should have just called him after that night. He must have thought I was joking ot trying to play games with him. And you tell me not to blame myself?" I grabbed a tissue and blew into it. "It's not your fault. It's his fault for driving when drunk." He scoffed. "Don't worry about it." "What? I have al
LEVI I didn't know how many days but I hadn't gone to work since the club meeting. I was somehow devastated because I knew I would never come back to see Delia, despite the promise. But there was another thought in my head. What if she was just doing this to pay me back for what happened? What if she knew I really loved her and she wanted me to feel every atom of guilt and probably die of it? What if all those actions were fake and she just wanted to see me suffer? The hot, steamy night was all just a ploy then. But then again, I couldn't just conclude without confronting her. She hadn't called since that day and my assumptions were beginning to seem true. My heart ached a lot and my eyes watered. Why was she doing this? I looked to my side and picked up the half bottle of vodka. I had earlier finished six bottles and it wasn't afternoon yet. I had finished more than a crate in less than a week. I was gradually turning into a shadow of myself and there was no one to pull me out.
