Robert Keene was seated in his garden enjoying the view with a newspaper in his hands. A chocolate lacquered coffee stool with a glass full of wine and bottle of Hardy's under it. He thumbed through the pages and stopped to sip from his glass once in a while. His wife Norah later joined him from the super active house. It was in this garden if not the bedroom where they did their usual talk. "You are all alone out here Robert everything okay? I couldn't help but notice you were missing from the party"She kissed him on the cheek and took a sip from his glass of wine. "Am okay hunnie I just needed some time to think you know with all the noise and kids playing everywhere""So what is that you're thinking about?""You really want to know?"Their relationship was based on single decision maker. Robert. They all just followed what he said blindly like a bunch of pilgrims. And in case they asked he always had an answer ready."Let me make it easy, how are yo
Early the next morning Elsie was coming from the bathroom when he saw Lewis slowly sneak into their room. He was smelling like a brewery itself and his tie was missing and he was barefoot. When he saw her watching him leaning on the door jamb he froze and smiled broadly, a smile that faded when he realized she was not smiling."Hey am sorry" he said staggering towards her, she pinched her nose with her thumb and index finger.She didn't say anything to him instead she pointed to the shower and shut the door when he stumbled on the toilet seat to puke. Elsie leaned on the door with her back and exhaled a lungful of compressed air, her eyes shut while her mind roamed through her memories looking for that particular memory. The day she met Lewis and the day she agreed to marry him. If it was a computer she would have send them straight to the recycle bin and also cleared the bin itself.But she was not. You see the author of the 5Am club said we humans have a tragic habit o
When Elsie arrived in the Woodley manor that evening she chose to compose herself before she walked in. Everyone was seated in the living room enjoying the evening snacks. Cups full of porridge and a large tray of cookies in the middle of the antique but lacquered coffee table. The kids were in the dining rooms with a maid watching over them."Elsie glad you can join us?" George said happily."Thank you" she said flashing a smile."And where is Lewis I thought you two are together?" Beth asked and everyone had their eyes on her.Since the uncomfortability that came with cheating on Lewis, she had decided to entangle herself in lies again but that evening she had to come up with something to save his ass because the truth was too harsh. It was better to lie for someone she had no idea where they were but with Lewis it was different. He was with a hot model somewhere in the numerous clubs of waste brook having fun. Perhaps with his head between her legs making her scre
Seasons, they come and go, sometimes when we least expect or don’t want them to. After a couple of months of enjoying her relationship with Lewis, after countless dates, hanging out by the lake, sex in the shower and all the nasty stuff the end of a season was knocking. Lewis was starting to revert back to his earlier days slowly, step by step while frank, the demon that she was trying to cast out was still stalking her. She would close her eyes during yoga and open them only to see him. He even pretended to be a cleaner in the office just to see her. It was starting to get really serious and funny. It was no secret that he was obsessed with her. His argument was if she really didn't want him around she would have pressed charges or got some kind of restriction order. But no, she couldn't because Frank seemed to fill that gap Lewis left and it was wide, so wide. She finally agreed to be friends with benefits...get your head out of the gutter, no sex just friends and once i
At tea break, a half past ten Elsie briskly walked out of her office. Tom had already notified her that Bella was waiting in the cafeteria. She used the normal lift and you could sense the respect from her fellow employees or hatred it was hard to tell but they just like stopped talking the moment she go in there and they didn’t say a word to her until the got to the ground floor where they went to their different directions and picked up the conversations that they were withholding. It made her feel like a snitch, the bosses pet. Exactly what Lewis had warned her about. Now she needed the executive lift key card.However one brave girl named Lisa from her name tag approached her. She was wiry with curled hair, black sheath dress with red doll shoes."Good morning mum" she said happily as they marched outside."Morning, please just call me Elsie""We are used to it, referring to Mrs. Woodley when she comes around, anyway my name is Lisa am in the tech department girl
For the first time in his life Frank was stepping foot into the Keene manor and it lived to his expectations. The decor, the floor the walls, the high-end furniture coated with gold and the staff busy walking to different directions. Everything screamed money and he had that soothing feeling that it was all going to be his. He had no intention to brag to Elsie about his secretive billionaire life but it was his last resort. If he exhausted all the options he was going to have to use that."Welcome home boy" Wade whispered in his ear. "Thank you" Frank said looking around."Wade my man!" The house manager, a short stout man with grey hair and a potbelly in a black suit and a badge on his left said walking downstairs. "Who else if not Bramwel!" Wade said happily as the two men hugged in a brotherly manner, they then went ahead to exchange pleasantries.Frank was left staring still on his feet. Looking lost like gazelle in a lion’s territory. It was not until one
Thursday morning, Elsie's day two at work and already one of her best since George and Joe were going out of the country for a couple of days. I know you don't see how that makes it best day for her. Relax. That was the purpose of the meeting in the home office, deciding who was going to run things and no surprise here, it was Lewis. That meant the two were going to work in the same office. He or she could have popped in the others office anytime to see how they were doing, if they were breathing fine or they needed a mouth to mouth resuscitation.Tom was driving them in the reserved CEO Rolls Royce. Back left was Lewis in a grey Armani three piece suit, brown monk trap shoes on his feet, on his right was the love of his life in matching grey sheath dress, grey handbag with a pair of black wedge shoes. "This is good" Lewis said."You're kidding this is the best feeling ever babe, going to work with you, being able to see you the entire time an just super excited right n
After seeing Elsie again Frank realized how much he had missed her and how dumb he was to say he was going to stay away and wait for her to realize she loved him. Seeing her that day super jumped his obsession to tenth fold the rate it was before and based on how close he was to ruining her marriage he had a plan to stalk her without her realizing it. And about being with Lewis? Well, he was the glass is half full kind of a guy not the half empty type."Can you believe it wade" Frank said happily helping the cook in the kitchen, he was in a great mood "He was seated there with her both of us were wrong""I warned you, can you just let the chef do her job, am sure there is news you need to be watching""Are you even listening to me Wade?""Your obsession with that girl is getting the better of you I thought we agreed you should let her go""Not easy Wade, I doubt if you've ever been where I am right now" he said leading the way back to the spacious living room.
