( I’m sorry )
” Mr Kingsley?” I called in fright releasing my wrist from his grip.
I turned my face away and took to my heels.
Why did I have to see him here? Is he friends with Edna too?
This is really a bad luck.
What if he threatens to kill me or take my job away from me?
Eric is his friend and he will definitely listen to him.
I just hope he doesn’t know I work for Eric.
” Alexa please ”
I halted immediately I heard him plead. Seriously?
I just heard him plead for the very first time! And he called me by my first name.
” What did you want Mr Kingsley, I thought I will have peace since I no longer work for you ”
I said turning to him, it was getting dark but the shinny lights are everywhere .
” I am not here to give you any kind of trouble Alexa, I am here to say that I am sorry for everything I might have done or say to you ”
” I was just blinded by jealousy coupled with the fact that I just don’t like people , I realized I was wrong the moment you left ”
” Believe me, I said all that out of anger. I didn’t mean any of my words and I am sorry ”
” I know I have been a pain in the ass since the very first day we met, I have been like that all my life but having you around thought me that it’s not the best way to live a life ”
” The day you left, I realized I lost a treasure because of my stupidity, transferring hatred to innocent people ”
” I came to accept it that I am attracted to you, I love you Alexa and seeing you with other men makes me jealous ”
” Seeing different men lurking their eyes in your body made me angry and I blame everything on you ”
” I can’t keep hiding the fact that I love you, I love you Alexa and that’s the fact ”
” I know it will be hard to forgive and let go of what I have done you, just know that I am sincerely apologising from my heart ”
” I regret my actions towards you, having you around gave me the peace I never had ”
” I fell in love with you the very first time you entered into my office but my ego refused to admit to it ”
” All I asked for is a second chance Alexa and I promise to make things better, I promise to correct all the wrongs ”
” I won’t want you to work for me but I want you as my partner, my comforter and that one person I can share my problems with ”
” Please, just this last chance I beg you. Don’t push me away ”
A tear dropped from my eyes staring at him.
I could see the sincerity in his eyes , hurt, and needs love.
” you know I have kids Mr King…”
” It’s Jeff to you and I don’t care if you have kids or not, I want you by my side and I will gladly accept the kids as mine ”
H..he will accept my kids? He still loves me despite the fact that he knows I have two kids?
” J.. Jeff ”
He came closer and held my hand.
” Alexa please, I will give you enough time to think about it but please, do not say no, you’ve changed me so much and you rejecting me will add to my frustration , I beg you let’s just give this relationship a trial, I won’t act grumpy and…”
” Are you dump Anika stop right there ”
We both turned to see a furious Edna and a lady walking classically towards us.
She ignored Edna like she wasn’t talking to her.
I shifted back to look at her and what she did next surprised me .
” Baby ” she beamed clinging unto Jeff.
Baby? I thought he….
Who’s this lady? What’s their relationship?
I glanced at him to see him shocked too.
The lady was still hugging him very tight.
I saw his jaw clenched and his eyes turned red.
Okay!! What’s going on?
He pushed the girl away roughly and that drew lots of attention into the hallway.
The Anika girl landed on the floor. What?
” I am not your baby? Wait who are you?” Jeff asked and that moment, his eyes landed on Edna and she flinched in fear.
” I…I Jeff, I tried stopping her but she ignored me, believe me big brother ”
Huh? Big brother? Are they siblings?
Is that why Jeff is here for the party?
What’s this! Ugh! I am going crazy
Everything is confusing me!
Before we could understand what was happening, the place has been crowded.
How did they get the news just now?
The girl tried standing up in embarrassment and humiliation.
She was even crying. Who’s she?
” What’s happening here?” A middle-aged man said coming into view.
” Thank goodness you are here dear father, I told you before now that if I see this thing beside me, I will kill her but it seems you didn’t tell her about that”
” I don’t want a wife from you, I don’t want her as my wife not when I am in love with someone else, the one that stole my heart without seducing me, the one that stole my heart with her innocence, that girl is Alexa and I don’t want anyone else but her ”
I gasped as he held my waist protectively.
Oh God! I didn’t expect this to be happening here.
” She’s the one I have chosen and dear father, it’s either you leave with or suit yourself ”
” And Anika or whatever your name is, I don’t want to ever see you around me unless it’s your death wish ” he said and took me out of the crowd.
OhMigod! What just happened?
I bowed my head as everyone’s attention was focused on Jeff and I.
We’ve ruined Edna’s birthday party.
Gosh! I can’t believe he chose me over that classy lady!
My lips quivered in fear from everything that happened.
Why will his father bring a wife for him in this era?
And I also noticed there’s no good relationship between them, does it have anything to do with his hatred for people?
Because when he stared at his father, it was with so much hatred like there are enemies.
He kept dragging me with him till we were out of the party venue, I mean out of the main mansion to where his car was parked.
Is he really going to leave his sister’s party because of this?
” J.. Jeff ” I called and he paused. His face right now is so scary!
” Y..your face.. it’s so scary, you are scaring me ” I said sincerely and that very minute, his face dissolved of any anger.
He ran his other hand through his hair before turning to me.
” I am sorry okay? I didn’t mean to scare you”
He said pulling me into a hug! His attitude surprised me but I hugged him back.
At least for now, with everything that has happened, I believe he’s sincere in his apology but I am not ready to give in yet.
I have to seek advice from Andrew before I do anything that will break me emotionally.
Two more episodes to go 💃💃. How do you think it will end.
