🌺 EPISODE 48 🌺
💃 Arianna’s Pov:💃
He went on his knees right in front of me as the crowd stared at us.
“Marry you?” I asked in shock as my eyes widened in shock.
He didn’t even let me speak, he quickly took my hands.
” Please Arianna! My family is here” He said as I looked around.
He was about to slip the ring but he tried taking off my wedding ring with Bryan.
But then the ring was stuck on my finger.
He tried forcing it but instead he wounded my finger.
“Stop it…. You’re hurting me” I said still pretending.
He became visibly furious but he was still calm.
“Why isn’t it coming out?” He asked as I looked at him puzzled.
“What’s your business? Why would you propose to me when we are not even dating?” I asked in annoyance but I didn’t want him to be disgraced so I still pretended.
“You really have to do this for me Arianna…. Just say yes and I will tell you my reason for this later” He said as I gulped hard.
“Am sorry to disappoint you Marvin but no! I can’t go on with this madness you call proposal” I said as I turned to leave.
“Marvin! How dare you?” I heard a roar and everyone turned around.
To my greatest surprise it was Bryan.
I gasped in shock.
Before I could utter another word,,, Bryan already pounced on Marvin throwing thunderous punches at him.
I covered my mouth with my palms.
“Bryan! Let go of him” I shouted as I rushed to bleeding Marvin.
Marvin struggled up as I helped him.
“Why are you always causing trouble and hurting Marvin? What has he ever done to you?” I screamed at him.
“Can’t you see it Arianna? He’s trying to take you from me” Bryan yelled as I scoffed.
“Take me a way from you?” I asked with furrowed eyebrows.
” Yes Arianna….. You don’t know this guy that’s why you are talking like this,,,, he He wants to create a rift between us” Bryan said.
“Rift indeed! Bryan there is nothing between us and that is all I know,,,, well yes! We are getting married” I said trying to make him feel jealous.
Bryan’s jaw dropped in astonishment.
“You heard me Marvin…. We are getting married soon” I said as Marvin smiled.
I quickly stretched my hand and Marvin slipped the ring through my third finger.
“I hope you understand that” I said as I saw hot tears rush down his eyes.
And for a moment, I felt like wiping those tears off myself.
But then I turned my face away.
“How could you…..?” He broke down as I blinked my eyes continuously.
“I think you should leave right now” I managed to say.
“You hate me that much?” He asked as I bit my fingers.
“Bryan it’s over between us and besides the crowd are watching us please just leave from here” I said looking around in shame.
“I don’t care Arianna” He said
“I guess since you don’t want to leave from here then I will be the one to leave with Marvin” I said as I quickly rushed off and Marvin followed me.
I burst into tears as I sat by the pool.
Am such a bad person….
Memories please just come back already!
Please give me back my memories so that I can recall everything!
Why is it being unfair?
Why is this making me feel so bad?
“Arianna please stop crying!’ I heard Marvin’s voice from behind as I quickly wiped off my tears.
“What are you doing here Marvin?” I asked with a pesky voice.
“You just asked me to come with you and…. ” He said as I glared hard at him.
“Just because I put up that charade to make my ex husband jealous doesn’t mean that I have forgiven you for this drama you put up tonight” I said
“Drama? This is not a drama…. This is really how I feel towards you Arianna please believe me” He said and tried touching my hair but I pushed his hand away.
“Just go away!” I screamed as I rushed off.
This is getting out of hand!
I have to leave now….
I sat on my bed starring absentmindedly at the ceiling fan.
Why would Marvin propose to me?
I kept thinking as I glanced at the beautiful expensive ring on my third finger.
There is allso Bryan’s ring in my other finger!
I tried to take Bryan’s ring off but it was really stuck.
Why do I feel awkward about Marvin?
Then Bryan’s words rang aloud in my mind.
*You don’t know this guy that’s why you are talking like this… He wants to create a rift between us*
Those words didn’t stop hitting me hard.
My cell phone rang aloud for the one hundredth time I guess.
I turned it off as I buried my face in the pillow.
Actually I don’t know why but I was really expecting Bryan’s call but I got not even a missed call.
🌺 Bryan’s POV:🌺
I sat on the sofa with my ear pod into my ears as I sipped my cold juice.
“Really man? Am so proud of you… You shouldn’t keep crying for that girl” Jim said as I forced a smile at him.
“Yes… I even thought that after the incident today then you might even commit suicide?” They joked.
“Why would I commit suicide? If I do then that means I have finally surrendered the love of my life to Marvin ” I said
“What? I thought you are finally moving on” Jim asked.
“No I can never leave her but you know now I realize that am paying for my mistake of treating her badly before so God wants me to suffer before getting her back” I said
“What do you mean?” They chorused.
“You know God just wants me to fight for my love and that is exactly what I will do,,,, I will fight for my love” I said with a smile.
They exchanged glances with each other.
“Weird…. And when did you start talking about God?” They said and I smirked.
“Just now!” I laughed.
“I’ll fight for us Arianna…. I promise you that,,, I will never give up on you” I thought inwardly.
🌺 Arianna’s POV:🌺
I throw the door open and gasped.
I quickly shut the door but he opened it and walked in as I walked away from him backing him.
“What are you doing here Marvin?” I asked with a stern voice.
“Arianna please listen to me” He pleaded.
“Just go away! what do you take me for? A piece of doll with no single feelings?” I freaked out.
“Am sorry if that’s how you feel but that’s not what I meant” Marvin said.
“I don’t want to talk to you Marvin so please just go away” I said
“Why? Is this because of your good for nothing ex husband?” He asked as I quickly turned around.
I landed a dirty slap on his cheek……

🌺 EPISODE 49 🌺
💃 Marvin’s Pov:💃
My jaw dropped in shock as I looked at Arianna with my palms still on my cheeks.
Is she regaining her memories finally?
Why is she so concerned about him now?
I hope she’s not regaining her memories already.
I know that someday she will regain her memories but before that happens, I need to slip our wedding ring into her finger and also make sure she gives birth first.
That way….. She won’t be able to leave me no matter what.
“Am sorry Marvin but you shouldn’t speak of Bryan in such manner” She said as she backed me immediately.
I wanted to flare up at her and scream at her but I kept cool.
“But that’s how I feel Arianna! Just look at me right now I don’t even know what I will tell my family if you turn down my proposal” I cried pretentiously.
“You should have thought of that before putting me in such a tight corner….. I hope you understand what marriage is all about,,, it’s a lifetime decision to spend the rest of my life with you and such a decision should be made with much concern” She said.
“I know Arianna but I think you are the one for me because I’ve grown do fond of you…. Am sorry I had to throw the question up in that manner without your consent but please don’t turn me down” I pleaded as I went on my knees.
She gasped as she helped me up immediately.
“No! You shouldn’t….. You shouldn’t go on your knees in front of me,,,, it is very wrong to do that” She said as she helped me up.
Am a good actor of course because tears didn’t stop running down my face.
She’s so kind and softhearted.
That’s the more reason why I want her to be mine and mine forever.
“So what’s your take now?” I asked anxiously.
“Marvin I feel this is just not right” She said pacing around.
“Not right? Why do you feel such way? You know am not a bad person right? You know I can’t hurt you?” I asked eagerly.
“I know you’re not a bad person but I feel that am the bad person here” She said worriedly.
“You? A bad person? Of course not! From the best of my knowledge….. You are the most nicest person I have ever met in my entire life” I said as I held her hand.
“No Marvin…. I am not a nice person because if I am then I would have tried to understand Bryan when I had to than scare him away” She burst into tears.
I gulped hard as anger engulfed me……
So this is about that looser Bryan again?
So this is about Bryan huh?
Why can’t she just forget that stupid Bryan?
I thought she’s in love with me already….
I took a deep breath before speaking so as not to show my annoyance.
“No my dear Arianna….. You did what is right,,, you can’t spend the rest of your life with someone you don’t remember all in the name of marriage” I said as she wiped her tears off.
“But don’t you think I would have remembered him if I had to go closer to him” She asked anxiously as I gritted my teeth in annoyance.
“Closer to him? What for? You already signed the divorce papers so you should stay away from him” I said.
“I regret signing those papers” She said in tears.
I clenched my fists as anger burnt through me.
“Dammit!” I cursed under my breath.
“Arianna haven’t you seen how he keeps on hurting me and making me feel bad” I said feigning tears.
Well she fell for the drama.
“I know.. He’s so short tempered” She wiped her tears off.
“Such a person will only hurt you” I said as she nodded her head.
“Gullible” I thought inwardly and smiled mischievously.
“You’re right.. You really are absolutely right” She said.
I quickly hugged her tightly.
Wedding bells are really ringing!
🌺 Arianna’s POV:🌺
I stared at the ring on my finger and smiled.
Why would my wedding ring with Bryan refuse to leave my finger?
That means when I get married with Marvin then he will put his own ring on top of it.
My cell phone beeped and I quickly picked it up.
It was a message from an unknown number.
I opened the message and read it aloud.
“Arianna please don’t go through with your wedding with Marvin….. He’s not who you think he is….. I advise you to go back to Bryan cos Marvin is just selfish and he is the mastermind behind your misfortunes” I read.
Fear gripped me as my heart beat increased.
“What?” I said as shivered in fear.
Cold shivers ran down my spine.
Who could have sent this?
Is this true?
Marvin? Mastermind behind my misfortunes how?
I have a whole lot of questions running through my mind.
I wanted to call the number but I couldn’t cos it is a private number.
I became restless….
My wedding with Marvin has been fixed already now this….
I heard a knock on my door interrupting the thoughts that was running through my mind.
“Please come in” I managed to say.
The door swing open and my mother walked in with annoyance.
“What is this am hearing all over the place Arianna?” She freaked out.
“What do you mean mother?” I asked confused.
“Oh please stop acting like you don’t know…” She sighed.
“Am lost mother…. I don’t understand a thing that you are saying” I said.
“Fine… What am I hearing about you getting married with that boy Marvin? ” Mother screamed.
I bowed my head in guilty.
“Am sorry mother but you won’t understand how it got to this extent” I said
“Oh shut up… Just keep quiet! What is there not to understand that you were proposed to by Marvin and you accepted” Mother yelled.
“I only did that because I didn’t want him to be disgraced and feel insulted in public and am going on with the wedding because of his family” I said as mother scoffed.
“Really? So you are going to ruin in your life for his sake… Listen to me,,, we don’t marry out of pity but out of love.. Mark my words Arianna you will regret this!” Mother said as she stormed out of the room.
I bowed my head as tears rolled down my cheeks.
This is too much for me to bear…
Thoughts of the text message fill my mind again.
“I need to talk to Marvin about this” I said
🌺 Marvin’s POV:🌺
“She can’t just stop thinking about that stupid Bryan…. After all my efforts to win her over” I yelled angrily.
“That’s the more reason why you should let her go” Derek replied.
“Hell no… She’s mine and mine alone,,,, I can’t let Bryan take her from me” I said
“Stop this whole charade already and face the reality that even in her current state of mind she still loves Bryan and not you” Derek said
“No way! She must be mine…. I will have to kill that foolish Bryan and have her all to myself” I screamed.
“Marvin?” I heard a tiny voice from behind and turned around.
It was Arianna….
Beads of sweat ran down my face as my jaw dropped in shock…..
🔴 Did she overhear them? 😳🙄

🌺 EPISODE 50 🌺
💃 Arianna’s POV:💃
” Bryan?” I called out as the glass of juice he was holding fell freely from his hand.
I stared at him in surprise…..
Why the hell is he so shocked to see me?
How come he looks rather too surprised and tensed up?
Am just coming into the house now and I wonder what could be seriously wrong with him….
“Arianna….. ” He managed to call blinking his eyes continuously.
“Yes…. Why is your face like that? What happened?” I asked
“Uhmm…. Have you been here long? When…. When…. When did you arrive ?” He asked anxiously.
“Nope…. I just came in now” I replied as he heaved a sigh of relief.
“I was just startled….. I wasn’t expecting you that’s why” He breathed heavily as I smiled.
“Oh…. Am sorry but I had something very important to tell you that is why I came to see you” I said worriedly.
“Something ? Important ? ” He asked with raised eyebrow.
“Yes… Very important” I added.
“OK fine…. Let me hear it” He said as I settled down in the sofa beside me.
“Actually I got a message this morning and the content of the message brought so much confusion into my head” I said as he looked at me puzzled.
“So much confusion how?” He asked as I cleared my throat noisily.
“Well the message says that….” I said but I was interrupted.
“Oh Marvin…. How can you be so inhuman huh? Don’t you know you should at least offer to your visitor cold drink” Derek said
I smiled at him.
“Oh please pardon my manners Arianna….What do I offer you?” Marvin asked.
“Just water….” I said as Marvin walked out of the room to get the chilled water.
I didn’t stop pondering over the message and over how Marvin reacted earlier.
He was so tensed up.
And very uneasy as well………
I think there is something fishy about this whole thing and I really need to figure it out.
I heard some footsteps and raised my head.
It was Derek.
“Oh Derek….. You startled me” I said with a smile as I pressed my phone.
“Uhmm… I know you are confused and you really want to know who sent you the message this morning” He said as I widened my eyes.
With my eye brows arched,,, I scratched my head in confusion.
“How…. How did you know about that?” I asked as he hush me with his index finger in between his lips.
“Shhhhh….. I sent that and please I won’t advice you to tell him about that for now” Derek said as I looked at him confused.
“”But why? How did…. ” I asked as I saw Marvin coming and I quickly shut my mouth up.
“Oh he’s here already with the chilled water” Derek said changing the topic as I forced a smile.
“Thank you so much for the water… Am so thirsty” I pretended as I took the water.
Derek and I stole glances at each other but we looked away immediately.
He shouldn’t suspect anything fishy.
“What was it that you wanted to tell me about?” He asked anxiously.
I gulped nervously as I scratched my head.
“Actually it’s about our wedding…. I want to know how the preparations is going” I lied as he smiled.
“I have every single thing under my control but you were talking about a message? ” He asked.
My heart skipped a beat.
What do I say now?
“Errr….. It was about a message from a wedding planner” I said as he nodded.
“I can not wait to have you in my arms” He said as I forced a smile at him.
“Yeah” I said with my mind still pondering on what Derek said.
🌺 Bryan’s Pov:🌺
“Bryan! Bryan!!” Nadia rushed in with a newspaper in her hand.
“What is it?” I asked anxiously.
“Have you seen this?” She asked handing the newspaper to me.
I took the paper sluggishly as I flipped the pages.
I saw the caption and Arianna’s picture.
I only smirked and handed it back to Nadia.
“That’s good” I said as she scoffed.
“Are you being serious here Bryan? Didn’t you see that?” She asked.
“I know about that!” I said as Nadia gasped.
“So what now?” Nadia asked as I laughed.
“Don’t bother yourself Nadia…. That wedding is not going to hold” I said as she raised her eyebrow in shock.
“What? What do you mean?” She asked anxiously.
“I just don’t want you to worry cos that…. That will never ever happen” I smirked.
“Please don’t do anything illegal” She cried out.
“Worry no more” I said as I walked away leaving her to worry.
The wedding is this weekend but that wedding will never take place as long as there is breath in me.
No one takes away what’s mine from me.
🌺 Arianna’s POV:🌺
They covered the veil over my face.
I was beautifully adorned and bejeweled.
The wedding gown looked so perfect on me.
But I wasn’t myself…..
My maid of honour Gloria helped me open the car and I hopped into it.
“You look so beautiful girlfriend” She said as I forced a smile.
Mother and my siblings looked so sad in their beautiful attires.
The car speeded off.
My heart kept beating so fast!
Why has Bryan become so quiet?
Has he moved on?
I was still lost in thought when I heard Gloria scream.
The car swerved and swerved…
Fear gripped us!
“Driver please take it easy” We yelled.
It swerved and screeched to a halt and I hit my head on the car louvers so hard.
My head started aching so bad as my eyes turned.
I felt so much pain in my head that I shut my eyes ….
I held my head.
I felt my memories rushing back to my head….
“BRYAN?” I screamed as I quickly opened my eyes……
