21 Days Bribe




๐Ÿ’ƒ Bryan’s POV:๐Ÿ’ƒ

I walked into the hospital ward where Arianna was lying.

To my greatest surprise,,,,,,,, I saw someone standing beside her holding her hand.

“Who are you?” I asked with my eyebrows furrowed.

The person quickly let go of her hands in fear…..

It was a man and his dressing is like that of a cleaner.

“What are you doing in my wife’s ward and why are you holding her hands?” I asked with a sting of jealousy in my voice.

“Uhmm… Sorry sir I just wanted to clean the hospital ward for her and….” He stammered.

The voice sounded a bit familiar but a kind of deeper.

“To clean her ward? Then why are you holding her hands instead of cleaning?” I asked in annoyance.

What type of cleaner does that?

Holding and starring into patient’s eyes instead of cleaning and mobbing the patient’s room?

“Actually Sir… I…. I…. I… Wanted to clean but then I felt her bed was…was a kinda dusty and….” He stuttered.

“Shut up….. Come here,,, I will have to report you to the hospital authorities cos you are obviously not doing your job… ” I said as I quickly rushed to grab his arm but my cell phone rang aloud.

I quickly stopped as I picked up my cell phone.

It was from Jim so I had to take the call as the cleaner left hurriedly with the mopping stick and bucket.

I walked closer to Arianna as I patted her long hair.

“How is she doing?” Jim asked as tears pricked my eyes.

“She’s… She’s just here Jim” I said hopelessly as I kissed her fist.

“You have to really calm down Bryan” Jim said

“Am trying Jim….. Am trying so hard to calm down but I just can’t” I burst into tears.

“Listen man you don’t have to worry about anything OK” He said.

“I shouldn’t worry? Like for real? I shouldn’t worry while my dear Arianna is almost half dead on a hospital bed for almost three weeks now and you expect me to pretend like nothing happened? Is that even possible cos I don’t see the possibility of that which you are asking of me” I blurted out.

“I want you to keep something important in mind…. Which is that your Arianna will survive this ordeal no matter the outcome” He said as I wiped off my tears.

I exhaled deeply as I shook my head.

“I pray and hope so” I replied as I sat on the chair beside Arianna.

I hung the phone up and placed my head on the bed holding Arianna’s hand.

Still in thoughts but I fell asleep right beside her.

**** #DREAMS *******

I climbed the hill panting heavily.

I sighted Arianna climbing up and up and not looking back.

She was wearing a very long flair gown.

“Arianna! Arianna please wait for me,,, where are you going to?” I cried out still struggling to reach her.

“Go back Bryan… Please just go back now” She said not even looking at me.

“I can’t… I can’t leave you alone in such a dessert and dangerous place…. That’s impossible” I said as she backed me and shook her head.

“Am sorry but I advise you to go back cos coming here is of no use” She said as we got to the top of the hill.

She quickly started running and I ran after her.

She almost fell off the hill to land in a big ocean.

But then I caught her gown and held her tight.

And that prevented her from falling off.

“ARIANNA!!” I screamed crazily as I quickly sprang up from the bed edge.

Beads of sweat ran down my face.

I quickly gripped Arianna’s hand and kissed it.

What sort of dream is this???

Oh God!

I just hope nothing bad happens to my wife….

I panted heavily as I peered into her face.

I wonder when she’s going to finally wake up…

Please wake up already so that I can confess my feelings to you cos am tired of hiding my feelings.

I can’t wait to tell you every single way I feel about you!

๐ŸŒบ Marvin’s POV:๐ŸŒบ

I hoped into my car as I took off the nose mask panting heavily.

I rolled up the car louvers….

Oh Gosh!

That was so close!

He almost caught me….

Thank goodness his cell phone rang at the right time!

Else I might be a dead might by now.

I ran my fingers through my hair as I blinked hard.

She looked so lifeless lying on that stupid bed.

That arrogant jerk should be the one on the bed instead of her.

He should be the one on the dying bed and not her.

He is supposed to be at the morgue not asking me what I was doing in the ward.

Actually I already returned the cleaner’s uniform.

I heaved a sigh of relief as I ignited the car engine.

I drove out of the hospital still lost in thought.

๐ŸŒบ Mrs Bernardo’s POV:๐ŸŒบ

Laila and Bibi held my finger tightly as we walked into the hospital ward.

We rushed into the ward.

That has become our daily routine.

Dearest God!

Please wake my daughter up already….

it’s almost one month since she’s been lying on that bed lifelessly.

We saw Bryan sitting beside her as usual.

Sometimes I feel very sorry for him.

He sleeps in the hospital all the time,,, that’s how much he loves Arianna.

I could see that in his eyes.

“Poor guy!” I muttered under my breath.

“Mo…ther” we heard a very weak voice and turned around.

It was ARIANNA…..



๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ง Twenty-one DAYS BRIDE ๐Ÿ’ง



๐Ÿ’ƒ Arianna’s POV:๐Ÿ’ƒ

My eyes were aching and rotating as I opened my eyelid.

My head was aching badly and it hurts.

“Mo….ther” Was I could say as I inhaled deeply.

“Arianna?” My mother squeaked in excitement.

I saw Laila and Bibi beside her jumping in excitement.

“Call the doctor! Doctor? Call the doctor!” That word kept ranting in the air.

The doctor came in with a strange man.

Then the strange man run to me and held my hand.

“Arianna! How are you feeling now?” He asked with smiles all over his face as the oxygen was removed from me.

I kept on starring at him.

“Who is he?” I thought within myself.

But I didn’t say a word cos I was too weak to say a word.

Mother hugged me tightly and I forced a smile.

But I was still astonished at the strange man’s reaction.

He didn’t stop tripping in happiness.

What’s going on?

“Oh daughter…. We missed you so much” Mother kissed my cheek.

I smiled holding her fingers tight.

I was too tired to talk.

“Please let the patient rest for the meantime” The doctor said to them.

The man ran to me and smiled happily.

” Am happy you are awake now Arianna so that I can tell you that which I’ve been meaning to tell you” He said as he wanted to peck me but I pushed him away.

“Who are you?” I asked anxiously as everyone gasped.

I held my head as I struggled to sit up.

“What?” He asked in shock.

“Who are you?” I repeated the question again to the amazement of everyone.

๐ŸŒบ Marvin’s POV:๐ŸŒบ

I set the food on the dinning singing in so much excitement.

Derek walked in with a surprising look.

“Mmhhh….. ” He hummed as he perceived the aroma of the assorted meals on the dinning.

I only smiled and continued setting the dinning.

“What’s going on Marvin? Is it your birthday or is there any celebration?” He asked anxiously.

I chuckled as I shook my head.

“It’s a celebration my dear paddy! I cooked all your favorites….. This calls for celebration” I merrried.

He arched his brows giving me a questioning look.

“Celebration? What in particular are we celebrating?” He asked already seated and ready to devour the food.

I laughed so hard.

“You don’t know yet you are so ready to eat” I said teasingly.

“Just wanna know why you are so do happy today… I last saw you smile like this a month ago” He replied.

“You won’t believe this…..” I shrieked in excitement.

“Believe what? Come on tell me already you’re making me nervous” He said eager to hear the words.

“She regained consciousness” I announced as he paused still staring at me surprised.

“Who is she?’ He asked as I scoffed.

“You’re unbelievable man! Don’t tell me you don’t know” I said as he rolled his eyes.

“But I don’t know and I don’t even understand you” He replied dishing the rice into a plate.

“She is no-one else but Arianna” I said as he popped up his eyes.

“Arianna? She woke up?’ He asked as I nodded.

“Yes… She woke up” I said as he smiled.

“This really calls for celebration” He said as I filled our glasses with wine and clinked our glasses together in merriment.

๐ŸŒบ Bryan’s POV:๐ŸŒบ

I stared around in confusion.

“What? What are you talking about Arianna?” I asked in surprise.

We exchanged glances at each other.

“Please stay away from me… I don’t know you and I’ve never seen you before” She said as I became shocked.

“Arianna… He’s your husband” Her mother said as she shook her head.

“Husband?” She yelled in astonishment.

“Yes…. Arianna what are you talking about?” I asked.

“What are you guys talking about? I’ve never seen him before” She said again.

I turned to the doctor with a puzzled look.

“Doctor what’s happening? I don’t understand anything” I asked the doctor.

“Please go away! I don’t want to see you here” She cried out as we gasped in shock…….




๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ง Twenty-one DAYS BRIDE ๐Ÿ’ง


๐Ÿ’ƒ Bryan’s POV:๐Ÿ’ƒ

I walked into the doctor’s office with a puzzled face.

” No doctor! I don’t understand a thing here, what happened to her?” I asked anxiously as I paced around the office.

“Calm down Mr Adams! We have run the X-ray on her and this is the result” He said dropping the envelope on the table in front of him.

” So what now doctor? What’s wrong with her? Why can’t she recognize me?” I asked anxiously.

“Well you see Mr Adams the truth is she’s suffering from amnesia” The doctor said as my eyes widened in shock.

“What?” I half yelled.

“Yes Mr Adams….. She’s suffering from amnesia due to the gunshot on her head,,,,, her memories were badly affected” The doctor said as my jaw dropped in astonishment.

“As a matter of fact,,,, the only people she will recognize are those who she have been with since birth….. She doesn’t recall getting married to you or even seeing you” The doctor added.

“Oh God! Why? This shouldn’t happen” I panicked.

“Doctor! What are we going to do now?” I asked more than anxiously.

The doctor exhaled deeply and took off his eyeglasses.

“Nothing can be done for the meantime… Let’s keeping praying she gets her memory back real soon” The doctor said.

I was too shocked to say a word so I sat sluggishly on the couch.

Hot tears pricked my eyes and rolled down gradually from my cheeks.

How do I tell her how I feel?


Why should this happen now that I finally made up my mind to say yes to love?

Why should this happen to my Arianna?

I took a sharp deep breath as I scratched my head.

This is the worst situation ever…..

I can see her but I can’t talk go her!

Oh Arianna…..

How I wished I took the bullet instead of her then she wouldn’t forget me…..

Then she won’t get amnesia!

The police too are so worthless!

They couldn’t even find the gunman…..

I felt a sharp pain on my head.

My head was aching badly…..

Am not sure I can cope with this!

๐ŸŒบ Arianna’s POV:๐ŸŒบ

I sat up on the hospital bed as I ate the rice cakes mother prepared for me.

“Yum mother…. This is super tasty” I hummed as I ate the rice cakes.

“Am glad you liked it so much child” Mother smiled as she patted my hair.

“I can’t wait for you to come back to our house again sister” Bibi said happily.

“But I’ve always been with you guys” I said as Laila arched her eyebrows.

“Nope…. You left the house about a month ago” Laila said.

“What?’ I asked confused.

“Really Arianna? You don’t remember being married to Bryan Adams?” My mother asked giving me a suspicious glare.

“Married? I can’t remember being married” I said.

“And the ring on your finger? What do you have to say about it?” Mother asked as I scratched my head.

I stared at my finger and the ring on it in so much confusion.

“I don’t really remember how this got to my finger” I said

“But you and Bryan are legally married” Mother replied.

“I can’t remember that! Am not married mother and I don’t know how I got married to the Bryan guy….. I can’t even remember seeing him ever” I said as tears circulated in my eyes.

“But why?” Mother said

Tears rolled down my cheeks as I held my bandaged head in pains.

“Ouch….. Ahhh….. Mother I can’t remember this and I don’t even have a slightest idea who he is” I cried bitterly.

Mother hugged me tightly as she patted my hair.

“Don’t force it my darling…. At the right time you will be able to recall everything OK” Mother said as I nodded my head.

” I hope so mother” I muttered in her arms.

I really need to remember everything…..

I can not even remember how I ended up in this hospital bed and why.

The only thing I remember is that I am a model and I live with my poor mother and three siblings.

Bibi my youngest sibling…..

Laila and my drunkard of a brother.

That’s all I know and will always know for the meantime.

This Bryan guy and his existence is still a puzzle in my head that I find so difficult to solve.


I laid on the bed with my eyes fixed on the ceiling absentmindedly.

They already left and I have also warned the Bryan guy not to come anywhere close to my ward.

“Arianna!” I heard a shrieking scream and turned around sharply.

My worries disappeared as my face beamed with smiles.

“Gloria! Gloria!!” I jumped for joy as Gloria rushed to me in a warm embrace.

She was crying as she hugged me tightly.

“I’ve been expecting you” I said as she chuckled.

“Of course I will always come and you know it” She said as I held her hand.

Just then a strange man walked in with smiles.

I stared at him puzzled.

Who is he?

“Arianna am so happy you’re awake now” He said as I rolled my eyes.

“Gloria! Who is he?” I asked anxiously as Gloria looked at me puzzled.

“You don’t know him for real?” She asked me as I nodded.

“I really don’t… I can’t recall anybody” I said

“You don’t know me?” He asked in surprise.

“This is Marvin…… The guy who saved you at the ice cream shop that day” Gloria said as I held my head.

I only nodded my head though I don’t recall anything.

“What are you doing here?” A very loud bold voice screamed making us startled.

We all turned around….

It was Bryan!

He stared at Marvin in annoyance…..
