💧 TWENTY-ONE DAYS BRIDE 💧
🌺 EPISODE 2 🌺
💃 Arianna’s POV:💃
With my face buried in the pillow,,,, I sulked bitterly.
How are we really going to cope??
What if the landlady throws us out of the house!
I sniffed hard.
Suddenly, I heard a door crack noise and I quickly sprang up.
It was already dark and very late…..
“Who could that be? Mother and my little siblings have all gone to bed” I thought inwardly as I tiptoed outside.
I quickly turned on the torch light…..
I heaved a sigh of relief.
It was my useless elder brother Miguel.
He was back and as usual drunk….
He has always been the family’s black sheep.
All he does is steal, gamble and drink around… Lazing around all day.
“Just take a look at the time Miguel?” I confronted him.
He belched loudly as the stench of alcohol filled the whole place.
He staggered to the couch and fell on it heavily.
I sighed and shook my head as I locked the door properly before going back to bed or should I say going back to crying.
I really need a job urgently….
Anything for my family to survive.
I cried myself to sleep.
🌺 Bryan’s POV:🌺
I rubbed my eyes tiredly as I yawned.
I gradually opened my eyes.
The alarm clock beeped and I turned it off….
I saw the stupid slut still lying on my bed like a piece of wood.
I pushed her roughly as she opened her eyes
“Good morning” She said with a smile.
I opened the drawer and threw the money at her..
She furrowed her brows looking very confused.
“I don’t want to see you here again” I said sternly and walked away.
Seems like she knows how the whole things go,,,,, she left immediately.
I walked downstairs to the kitchen yawning hungrily.
I quickly took a packet of crackers and munched it.
My cell phone rang aloud.
It was my friend Albert…..
“Hello man….” I said
“There’s a big problem….. Actually you owe some people about about 5 million dollars last night and they are asking for it” He said as I gasped.
“Owing some people?? When?” I asked almost at the same time.
“Were you that drunk last night? You gamble and then you loose and….” He said as I recalled everything.
I threw the glass of juice in my hand on the ground and it shattered.
“Fvck…… What do I do now??” I said as I quickly hung up the call.
That’s such a huge amount of money.
I scratched my head in confusion.
How do I give the gamblers the huge sum of money….??
Right now,,, am so broke.
“What are we gonna do?” Albert broke the silence.
“Did you just say we? Of course this is Bryan’s cross to carry” Jim said as I eyed him angrily.
“Gosh… You’re so unbelievable Jim… Be serious for once” I said still lost in thought
“What were you thinking when you agreed to play with such people?” Jim fired back
“He was drunk Jim…. We were all drunk and you know it” Albert defended
“But I warned him last night but he refused” Jim said as I gulped nervously.
“I really need to think of something” I said
“Why not ask your dad for some cash?” Jim suggested.
I boiled in anger as I shot him a dangerous glare.
He knows how much I hate talking about that stupid man they call my dad.
“Shut up Jim! ” I freaked out
“Fine…. Sorry guys” He said as he shrugged
“How about you talk to your grandma?” Albert said as I forced a smile.
“She would want to know why I needed the money and I can’t think of any possible lie to tell her” I said as suddenly my cell phone rang aloud.
Talk of the devil……
It was my grandma calling.
“Hey… What’s up granny?” I said trying to hide my mood.
“Happy birthday once again son” She said as I smiled broadly.
“Thank you grandma” I said as I giggled
“Hope you’ve met the family lawyer right?” She asked me as I arched my eyebrows.
“What for?” I asked anxiously
“You are of age now Bryan….. So you can get the family inheritance of about 200 million dollars” Grandma said as my jaw dropped in shock.
“Really grandma? Two hundred million dollars?” I asked almost screaming.
My friends stared at me in astonishment.
“Yes son! You can go to the attorney for the paper signing… That’s by the way,,,,Nadia and I will be coming back soon” She said as I danced in happiness.
I quickly hung up and screamed in delight.
“What happened dude?” They asked anxiously
“I just won a jackpot,,,,, do you know I own 200 million dollars?” I asked as they gasped.
I walked straight to the attorney’s office with my friends behind me.
The gamblers didn’t stop calling as well.
Once I get the money,,, am gonna pay them then I can enjoy the rest of the money.
Excitement filled my mind.
We got into his office and he offered us seats.
“I guess you are here for the inheritance” He said as we all nodded our heads.
“Yes of course attorney” I managed to say since excitement couldn’t let me speak.
“Here!!” He said handing me some files.
“What are these for?” I asked anxiously
“Sign them Mr Adams” He said as I quickly picked up the pen and signed the papers.
I can’t wait to be given my cool cash.
“Where is the money Mr attorney?” I asked impatiently.
“First you will have to answer the following questions l” He said as we exchanged glances at each other.
Damn… what questions?
I thought inwardly.
“First…. What would you do with the sum of money?” He asked as I scoffed.
“Is he being serious??” I laughed
“Of course I have lots of investment in my head that I need to do” I said not knowing what else to say.
“OK… Can I have your marriage certificate?” He asked with his eyes fixed on the documents on his table.
“Huh? What marriage certificate?” I asked as my friends looked confused.
“Are you married and never told us?” Jim whispered as I pushed him off.
“Yes Mr Bryan….. You need to be married before you can have the money” He said as my eyes widened in shock.
“WHAT?” We chorused in shock…….
🔴 He needs to get married 😂😂
Am really exhausted guys… Even though it’s short!
