[STORY] Marriage War; Episode 22
At Annabel’s House:
She sipped a glass of water and stared towards the window.
“What am I waiting for if I don’t get Charles? I’ll lose him and I’m going to lose Danny also… My mouth was sharp, I shouldn’t have told them that I was not pregnant. No matter what it takes I’ll make sure I separate Gift from Charles. I know I was wrong but that shows he has been cheating on me because he said Gift belongs to him. I’ll not give them peace, Charles is mine and I’m his….. (Hiss) Relationship for two years cannot end just like that.”
Charles went to pick Gift, she looked perfectly nice. She had told her mum about her feelings for Charles. Her mum who also observed the unusual happiness on her daughter prayed that she finds the right man who will not break her heart.
We arrived at a candle night restaurant, the place was so beautiful and quiet. I had never seen a place like that and I wonder why he invited just me.
He was just smiling while sipping the malt he ordered for, I smiled back.
“I called you here to discuss something very important with you, I’m thinking about someone and I’m helpless. I just want you to help me” he said
I hummed, he needs my help. That sounds funny but I summoned to ask “what is it all about?” I asked.
He stopped sipping his malt and faced me in a serious mood
“There’s this girl I’ve been trying to hide my feelings towards her because of Annabel but since Annabel broke my heart, my mind went back to the girl although she knew about my fiancée. What should I do?”
I shifted and adjusted my sitting position, his words hurt me. I thought he loves me and I thought he wanted to talk about us. I felt down casted but I managed to talk….
“Well, if you love her then tell her what transpired between you and your fiancée, she will understand and I believe she will love you because you’re cute” I tried to hide my jealousy.
“But I’m scared or should I say shy of telling her. She really looks like and angel and even more beautiful than what imagination could take photograph of” he said
I was burning seriously within me. My cheeks burn hard, the taste of the malt began to change😂. The way he was defining the lady makes me jealous, I wish he could just stop and start telling me story instead of telling me the beauty of that lady……
“Wow, If she’s this cute, you guys will look perfect because you’re really also cute” I managed to say
Thank God for the darkness that has been covering my red eyes, tears were dropping already. Something began to whisper to me…. “Gift, you must not allow jealousy to ruin you. He’s not the only man on earth and he might not even know you have feelings for him. All what you have to do is to wish him well and your own time will come.” That’s the little b***h in me, it always calm me down. I yielded to the voice and flowed with him….
“So you support that I should boldly tell the girl that I love her?” he asked
“yeah! Common be man enough” I said
“I’m man enough already to be telling the lady” he said,
I became confused
“I don’t get you ” I said
He pulled my hand and hold it tightly
“Gift you’re the lady, I’ve loved you ever since the day I knew you. The first day I saw you I was so excited and attracted to your outer beauty. Knowing you more made me to discover that you also have inner beauty. I know it my sound odd or too fast to you but the truth is that, I need you and I want you to be mine” he said
Tears dropped down from my eyes and I cried freely this time, I stood up and hugged him tightly. I felt the warmth of his chest
“I love you too” I said
