He got to the hut to see Alexa, he walked up to her “Big sis, I was cal……” Adrian was saying when he stopped mid sentence to see his Sister with w€t, red and puffy eyes “Big sis.. What’s wrong??? Did something happen??? Did you miss America and your friends???” Adrian asked as he squatted beside his sister who wasn’t responding “talk to me please” he added as tears stream down his cheeks.
“Adrian, stop crying, Okay I will wipe and stop my tears” Alexa said as she wiped her tears and stopped crying, she looked at Adrian who was eagerly waiting for her to answer his questions “I heard godfather said that if Dad hadn’t married Clara, Ashley won’t be in the operating room, what if we are the ones endangering his life, what if he doesn’t like us anymore because we are Clara’s kids, what if…” Alexa said and they both started to sob.
“Oooh, help us Lord” Adrian said with tears.
Back inside the house, Michael had finished talking with his friends and decided to go and check on the kids, as he was getting close to them he could hear them sobbing, he listened again and moved closer, the sobs became louder.
“Jeez!!! Are you guys alright???, What happened???” He asked as he saw their faces which they were wiping with their hands now, they both bowed their heads and gave him no reply, he was curious, he looked at a book that was on the table in front of Alexa, he took it before the little girl could protest and what he read was shocking “Oh my!!!! When the I make this statement….” He asked himself inwardly and immediately the scene of the event that happened between he and George came flooding in “Gosh!!!!” He screamed mentally. “Babies, this wasn’t what I meant, I was concerned and worried about you guys that I had to say that, but I don’t mean I didn’t love you, of course I do love and cherish you guys, you are wonderful, smart and lively kids, I wouldn’t wanna trade that for anything” He said as he squatted to their level, they were both in front of him.
“I…. I…. thought you don’t like us anymore, but I am happy now, thanks godfather” Adrian said as he smiling happily and scurried into the house leaving Alexa with Michael.
“Thanks godfather, I was over thinking things, thanks” Alexa said smiling.
“You are super welcomed” Michael said, and they both began to walk to the house when they got near the swimming pool, Michael gently pushed Alexa in unexpectedly.
“Ohhhh… My!!! godfather, you are asking for problems right???” Alexa said as she wiped some water away from her face, Michael was laughing.
“I should have taken you pictures, so I can show your crushs, sure that they will be super happy to see it” Michael said pulling his tongue out towards his goddaughter.
“Am gonna kill you godfather” Alexa said as she came out of the water and began to walk fast to catch Michael but he was faster then her and ran into the house, she followed him laughing.
In the evening, TJ was at the house, he was in the kitchen with Michael, George was in the dinning, sitting on a chair and looking at both Michael and TJ at intervals because he was busy on his laptop.
“Thanks for the bread and butter” Michael told TJ who was washing some vegetables.
“No problem” He answered.
“So we wanna cook vegetables soup and semolina” Michael said for the again.
“Seriously!!! Dude you have said that a thousand times” George wailed.
“Sorry” Michael said chuckling. TJ began to teach Michael how to cook the meal, which he got almost immediately. After few minutes the food was still steaming. “Well, well it is simple but the making of the semolina is stressful” Michael said as he bent his back which made a sound, both Michael and George looked at each other and started to laughing, TJ smiled.
“You can also follow this channel on YouTube to help you” TJ said, Michael nodded.
“Okay, thanks” Michael responded.
“Sirs, I have to go, later then” TJ said as he waved them goodbye and walked out of the house and out of the compound. Michael began dishing the meal, when he was through, he wanted to call the kids but they were already there in the sitting room.
