🌷🌌A NIGHT WITH HIM🌷🌌
🍂 Chapter 27
He glanced up and the moment he did,the sight before him took his breath away .
She was dazzling in a beautiful red dinner gown, simple yet with a touch of splendour that only few couturiers in the world can achieve.
He could see why she was being boastful over her wear, this dress is so lovely, it also has a well embroided v-neck that exposed the swell of her creamy looking [email protected]
He knew if this sort of dress were to be on sale, it’ll be sold out in minutes, he doubt if this sort of wear is even in the top one fashion store in the city.
A thin necklace with a diamond necklace laid on her neck elegantly.
She carried a plain black little purse and also wore black heels.
Harold’s gaze trailed back to her face.
He has never seen her apply makeup and seeing it on her face now almost made him drool on the spot.
Her face is the most attractive part of her body, the make up was so simple but elegant ,he loved how her small lips shone with lip gloss.
Her hair was packed in a beautiful bun with curly tendrils framing her face, her natural long lashes flipped as she blinked her eyes nervously.
He felt his heartbeat increase merely staring at her.
“Damn!” He cursed when he realized he has been staring for too long and too hard.
“You look…” He paused and sighed.
“I..is the dress not good enough?” Irene asked nervously wishing she hadn’t boasted that much but her mum had said the dress was good and she also knew it was good.
“Was it her make up?” She thought, her cheeks flushed already.
She swallowed hard, knowing she really tried hard to impress him.
“No! Your dress is actually the most beautiful I’ve ever seen” Harold said and her face lit up immediately.
“Thank you” She smiled.
“And you look dashing, I’m surprised you could look this way. I’m sorry i mean no insult but…I’m just so surprised” Harold said.
“I thought you were not satisfied with my look with the way you stared so hard at me” Irene said.
“Your look rendered me that way” Harold said, making Irene’s cheeks go red, her cheeks was almost the same colour with her dress and she tried to prevent herself from grinning hard.
Her boasting hadn’t been in vain after all.
“You look good too” Irene said.
‘Good’ did no justice to Harold’s look and she knew it.
He was dressed in a neat black tux which didn’t hid his perfectly built body. The black curly hair on his broad chest peeped seductively out of the white shirt cuff.
He wore a pair of well polished black shoes to match and his wrist shone with a diamond wristwatch.
His long, curly black hair was parted at his forehead giving his face a more handsome look and he smelled so nicely.
He looked simple but anyone who sees him will know he emanated from wealth.
The word “riches” was spelt all over him.
Harold licked his already moist lips and Irene’s inside coiled.
“Shall we?” He stretched out his hand with a smile.
Her heart danced in her chest and she heaved a sigh before taking his hand.
Her hand already in his gave her another burst of feelings she can’t even explain, but it felt so good.
His hand felt so warm against hers.
She rarely get to hold him this way .
“You guys don’t have to go with us” Harold said to his bodyguards and they nodded.
He wanted to be free tonight, he would have told his driver to stay back too but he’s not sure he would be able to drive on their way back.
He wished they didn’t get to his limo so soon, he doesn’t want the feeling her hand gave him to stop.
It was just too good.
The moment they both walked into the party hand in hand, everything seems to stop,gazes flew in their direction and jaws dropped.
Harold noticed how uneasy Irene is. He tightened his hold on her hand and she glanced up at him.
“Be at ease” He whispered and she nodded.
She loosened up after that even though gazes were still on them.
Everywhere gleamed brightly and there were so much entertainment.
One could tell immediately that the dinner party was filled with influential people, different expensive wears shone from different corners of the room,jewelries sparkled and Irene noted most of the ladies looked overdressed,she was surprised at the heavy make up most of them wore.
The host quickly rushed forward to welcome them.
He led them to a seat and made sure they were well comfortable.
The ladies rushed to their seat immediately the host left them and Irene glanced up,alarmed at the number of eyes staring down at her.
“I want one”
“It’s so beautiful”
“You bought it from Tanya fashion store?
“Wow! Just look at the Hem”
“Tanya’s logo isn’t on it!”
“Who’s your fashion designer!!!!!?”
The ladies bombarded the stunned Irene with more questions flirting with Harold in the process.
“Chill” Harold said to Irene.
“I’ll answer them” He added, knowing Irene was too stunned to speak.
She do see most of these ladies in magazine’s cover. The are freaking wealthy!
And the surprise of seeing them in reality alone already made her mute.
Not to talk of the fact that they love her dress.
Her cheap dress!
“She made the dress herself” Harold said.
“Wow!” The ladies chorused.
“She’s a great fashion designer, what’s the name of her fashion store,we will love to patronize her” one of them spoke.
“Yes” The rest chorused.
Harold cleared his throat and glanced at Irene.
“Daire fashions” He finally said and Irene stared at him in disbelief.
He knew about Daire fashions?
She remembered she told Ivory about it,not him. Could ivory have told him?
“Daire fashions?” The ladies chorused.
“It doesn’t ring a single bell” one of them said and the rest agreed.
“That’s because it’s located in my house” Harold answered.
“Yes, you can have her contact and place your orders” Harold said.
“Harold, i don’t even have a machine!” Irene whispered to him.
“Let them have your contact, they are willing to pay any amount ” Harold whispered back to her.
“But how will i?…” She was saying.
“She’s ready to give y’all her contact” Harold interrupted her..
“What!” She exclaimed inwardly.
She glanced up at the waiting faces if the ladies and sighed.
She shared her contact before the ladies dispersed.
Most of them openly flirt with Harold before leaving.
Irene’s so sure each of them are here with their partner yet they flirt openly with another man!
“Harold,you shouldn’t have made me give them my contact. It’s true my parents once own a fashion store and i should have a machine but…i sold everything already, nothing is left” Irene said.
She had sold their parents machines to pay Damien’s fees and some other bills.
“When we get home, we’ll know how to go about it. Let’s enjoy the party” Harold smiled.
Harold was well respected, different influential people got up from their seats to say hi to him. Most of them proposed business to him, he simply gave them appointments and told them they couldn’t discuss that here. He was so humble about the whole thing that Irene felt so proud of him.
She ignored the jealous gazes casted in their direction and slowly sipped her wine.
Carrle burned with rage in her seat as she stared at Harold and Irene.
She had stood up with Ethan earlier to also glance at the couple whose their entrance caused so many gazes and seeing it was Harold and a lady broke her heart completely.
She wouldn’t deny the fact that they both look good. Well.. Harold is always looking good but who the hell was that lady.
She couldn’t believe it when Ethan told her it was Ivory nanny.
She once saw the lady’s picture but she wasn’t this beautiful in it .
Carrle swore under her breath, wishing she and Ethan had dressed up more than this cause it’s so obvious that Harold and the wretched nanny won the best dressed couple.
To think the blogs would carry it tomorrow gave her head ache.
She can’t just believe this!
The lady’s wear look so unique and she was so sure it wasn’t from Tanya’s store.
Tanya would have showed it to her first before selling it out.
Where the hell was Tanya anyway!
“Hello!” Irene heard a feminine voice said.
She glanced up at the same time with Harold to see a woman whose dress was so tight to the extent that it was almost choking her.
Irene shifted in her seat as she saw Ethan Weston beside the woman.
“Hey Carrle Weston” Harold smiled.
Weston? This Casanova even has a wife!
“Carrle?” Irene thought.
The name rings a bell.
“Irene, meet ivory’s mother” Harold said.
She’s ivory’s mother?
“H.. hi” Irene said and the woman’s look almost made her shiver.
Her gaze was so penetrating that Irene felt it.
“Harold, how could you bring a nanny to an influential dinner party. That’s an insult to the host” Carrle said.
“That’s an insult to the host? Even the host is cool with it,i don’t get why you’re bothered. You’re not the host” Harold said and Irene was glad he put her in her place.
The look on her face was so bitter.
The words really got to her.
“You should leave now, more people will be here to say hi” Harold said.
“I was not staying either. My husband and i have to be on our seats too. So many people have been coming to say hi, i just thought it wouldn’t be nice to ignore my baby’s father!” Carrle said.
“Ohh…thank you” Harold sipped his juice.
Irene saw the cold glance Ethan directed towards Harold who wasn’t even looking at him.
She noticed they didn’t even say hi to each other, it shows they both have mutual dislike for each other.
The couple walked away and Harold laughed.
“Why are you laughing?” Irene asked.
“Didn’t you see how overdressed they’re” He said.
“Ohh… yeah! And Carrle’s dress is almost choking her plus her makeup is too heavy” Irene said, shaking her head.
“Carrle has always been like that. She’s a party freak,she loves showing off and loves spending money on worthless things. ” Harold said.
“Ohh…she looks like it. But…how come she’s …married to Ethan Weston!?” Irene asked.
“That’s the path she chose for herself “Harold shrugged.
Irene sighed wondering if harold knows how dangerous Ethan is.
She should tell him but..
“Let’s dance” Harold stretched out his hand and Irene took it..
They joined the few people on the dance floor and started dancing to the waltz.
They weren’t the only ones on the dance floor but they were the only ones people were staring at.
Slowly, couples started joining in and the dancefloor was filled in minutes.
Irene smiled,she was enjoying the dance so much even if she had stepped on Harold shoes severally.
The moment was magical for her as she stared into his eyes…
He was the only one she saw despite the dozens of people on the dancefloor.
He held on to her gaze and it felt like he was feeling the same thing as she was.
Their dancing steps slowed down and the next second,their lips were inches apart.
She wondered how that happened.
She wished she could pull back but her heart didn’t agree with her, it pulled her closer.
And just when their lips were about to touch, she felt something sharp pierce her by the side.
