Fancy Ballerina episode 55 – 56



🌻She’s my crazy dancer…he’s all I’ve got🌻

Nnenna’s campus series



Alone again.

I’m alone again,

To the harsh world.

I’m reminded again that I have no one by my side.

I’m alone.

I watched the gentle cool breeze which blew around me and at my hair.

I tucked my hands into my coat pocket sighing heavily.

I sighed deeply.

How’s he?


Not fine??

Haven’t heard his voice or seen his face in four days now,

I had to persuade Riele to take away every claim about her father down from the press.

I had to bear a witness of seeing my parents die a natural death just to let Carson go.

Just to let me speak to him but to no avail.

I heaved.

I closed my eyes briefly and recalled his warm smile as he held me up as I danced… Wriggling myself in his arms,

His soft arms which was so clever in catching me each time I made a dance.

I gulped.

Can I dance?

Can I save him?

What if I can’t?

But I have to save him.

I placed my two palms together in a mood of prayer and then stood on my toes,

I wasn’t thinking about the pains it might cause,

All my whole thoughts were on how to save Carson.

My dance depends on it,

I began to dance to an unimaginary rhythm,

*Trust me…. *his voice echoed into my ears and I danced harder,

I never knew what I was doing but I couldn’t think about anything else,

With my eyes closed,

It felt Carson was holding me once again,

It felt like I was in an unimaginary world with Carson alone.

I imagined him grabbing me before my toes touched the ground and he ran about trying to catch me at each of my wild clever jumps.

I spun my self around still standing on my toes and his words filled my ears:

Even though he was not with me…. He was here with me somewhere in my heart.

*You can do this…. *

*I’ve got you…. *

🎶Look me in the eyes,

🎶Tell me what you see!

🎶Perfect paradise!!

🎶They remain as if,

🎶I wish I could escape,

🎶I don’t wanna fake,

I spun faster making a slight jump into the wind.

My mind kept mumbling,

C-a-r-s-o-n…it was the music I was dancing to.

Are they torturing him?

Gaht me dancing harder.

Is he okay gaht me moving in my dance steps,

My eyes was shut tight.

Tears streamed down my face.

All I’ve been through don’t scare me,

What scares me??

Losing Carson is like a bad nightmare to me.

Its one dream that I wish it won’t ever come true.

I recalled the first day he gave me a piggy ride on his back.

I flipped into the air,

I thought I was a rope coz of the way I was moving like I have no bones.

I spread out my hands to the wind,

Maybe I should fly… I thought as I stretched one of my legs to its full length,

Even my toes were pointed up too,

I used the other one to support myself.


I began to raise myself up and bringing myself down,

I didn’t know what was happening,

But I found myself holding onto a rope and twisting around it,

Then I heard noises,


I didn’t mind.

My feet touched a soft slim surface but it didn’t mind,

I held onto the rope dancing,

I jumped into the air and found myself again in another direction,

🗣Oh my gosh!


🗣She’s dancing!!!

🗣That was massive!!

🗣She’s so super flexible!!

🗣Nathan must see this!!

🗣How did she learn to dance this good once again?


🗣That BALLERINA is back again!!

🗣She even dances more than before!!

It was then I opened my eyes to see myself so far away from where I stood before.

I was surrounded by people who had their phones to my face.

I was blinded by the white flashes of their phones.

How did I get so far away from where I was before?

I looked at my legs?

I was barefooted?


I wriggled my toes cuz of how cold the ground was and then brought my face to the crowd again.

I searched for an exit but there was none,

Everyone circled around me.

I was the one in the middle.


🗣I never knew she was pretending all these while.

As they were murmuring,

My phone was buzzing unending,

From notifications to calls and then to text messages.

I was confused.

How did I dance this hard?

Why didn’t I fall after such a great dance??

I wanted to go but they won’t allow me,

🗣How did you do that? “They asked almost pushing themselves to me.

🗣How did you get your legs back? ”

🗣Tell us!

🗣You were rolling yourself around with that hanging rope over there… How did you do that?

My ears hurt.

The noise was too much.

Half a thousand were around me with me in the middle.

I felt like suffocating.

And the worst of it all,

They kept pushing themselves closer to me.

I fell to the ground but someone caught me carrying me in his arms,

My eyes were about closing up when I recognized his face,

“D-d-aniel… “I mumbled before my eyes closed up….


I slammed my table.

That’s impossible!!


I kicked my office table and it turned over,

How did that bi*ch start dancing again?

That shouldn’t be happening!

A knock came at my door and my secretary walked in,


What are you doing in my office? ”

I asked rudely and she cleared her throat,

“Some man came here to see you”

She said politely.

“Send him in”I ordered harshly and she bowed and left the room to go get the man.

She came back with him and I scoffed on seeing him.

“Get out then! “I commanded my secretary and she bowed and left the room for the two of us,

“How may I help you Mr. Man”

He scoffed helping himself into a seat,


Am now Mr. Man when you have my son locked up in your custody?


This wasn’t part of the plan! ”

I gave a short laugh,

“Even if I kill your son now,

I’m going to compensate you by giving away my daughter in marriage to your worthless son! ”

He eyed me devilishly,

“You’ve got to be kidding me right? ”

“I thought you hated your son or didn’t you? ”

He stood up stepping closer to me,

“I accepted to be the driver who crushed Mason and his wife to death because… ”

“Because of what!


What!! “I interrupted.

What if he was the driver?

Haven’t I compensated him enough?

The worst thing that ever happened to me was having a deal with him… To give out my daughter in marriage to his first son and here I am!

I’m losing everything!!

And he’s here to say what!

How did everything get so twisted in this manner?

“I killed those souls,

I watched them die!


Release my son or face the public!! ”

I gave a mocky laughter,

“My own daughter tried that but it couldn’t work out,

You want to try too?

You might end up loosing your whole family”I whispered smirking….



🌻She’s my crazy dancer…he’s all I’ve got🌻

I jerked sitting up from where I lay,

“Are you okay? “I heard Daniel speaking to me,


Where am I? “I asked thinking I had seen Carson before he dissappeared.

“No Carson here,

I made some breakfast for you and erm…. ”

I hurried to the dining without further speeches and began feeding myself hungrily.

Am so fuvking famished that I can finish a whole pot.

“Are you that hungry? “I heard him ask me and I barely looked up to his face before concentrating on the food.

I stopped a bit to have some water and then continued until the plate was empty,

I gulped down a large quantity of water and then belched.

I was full.

Oh my gosh!

Sweats came to my face immediately.

He was looking at me with an awe-like expression written on his face,

“What? “I asked him and he shook his head,

“Nothing, how are you going to dance in a few hours… I mean… I thought I would take you to the dancing site… ”

Oh my gosh!!

I hopped out of my seat.

How time flies!!

“Today is what? “I asked trembling and he gulped,

“Today is the Got talent show for ballerinas ”

I gasped cupping my mouth,

I rushed into his living room and grabbed his remote,

I turned on his TV and the news was everywhere,

About me,

About the Got Talent,

*News today.. *A young lady was visible on the screen giving out headlines to the masses.

*A fancy ballerina by the name Riley Mason went missing after a humorous dance last night… She disappeared after a guy carried her away… The masses wants to know if she’s going to show up today or not cuz they’ve been waiting for hours…. *

I turned off the news,

My gaze went to Daniel.

“What happened? ”


Did I count the days wrongly?

“Where’s my phone? “I asked rushing to get it from where he kept it,

I even noticed that I slept in his couch till this morning… Never mind… I shouldn’t bother about that.

“Why didn’t you wake me up? “I questioned him and he shrugged,

“You needed sleep,

You needed to rest,

You had to,

You looked so worn out and your legs looked so tired and painful too,

I had no choice… I know you don’t love me but I deeply care about you,

Carson would’ve done the same thing I did if he was here”he said in a soft voice which gladdened my heart.

“Take everything slow,

Carson will say so if he was here “he added coming close to me,

I was with my phone already and as he advanced towards me,

A call pulled into my phone,

I checked the ID,


I picked up gasping and trying to catch my breath.

I’m so scared.

I’m so fuvking frightened.

What am I going to do there?

What am I to…. I gulped digging my free hand into my hair,


Her voice flowed out nervously,


I replied and she heaved,

📲Thank God!

Where are you?

Where did Daniel take you to?

My dad is threatening that if you don’t dance with me,

He’s going to kill Carson,

My ears bled about what I heard.


Kill Carson?

What for?

📲Are you close to a TV?

She asked me and my eyes went to the Television once again,

📲Yes I am!

📲Turn it on and listen to what is happening,


I replied nodding and went to the remote once again,

I turned the TV on and:

*News today… An unknown man all these years claims to have been the driver employed by Mr. Bertinelli… A well known business tycoon to crush Mason and his wife to death on the beginning of summer many years ago*

Oh my gosh!

I gulped having my eyes glued to the screen,

📲Are you there Riley?

She asked me and that’s when I realized that I was still on the line with her.


I mumbled,

📲That man is Carson’s father.


My phone slipped off my hand.

I felt weak and my legs wobbled.

I felt so weak….



Daddy!! “Riley yelled as she came down the stairs jumping into their arms,

“Ush! Can’t you see dad is busy? “Her mother scolded and she frowned her little face,

“Leave her alone,

Come here little angel”her father came to her aid and she beamed slipping into her dad’s arms,


“I love mommy so much cuz she buys me ice cream every time we went out for picnics”they laughed,

“And what about me? “Her father asked and she cackled,

“I love daddy so much cuz I took after him!

His long nose,

His long hands,

Long fingers,

Long legs,

And daddy is so kind!! “She yelled giggling getting the two couples laughing,

They pulled her into their midst while they laughed away,



This can’t be happening to me.

Save Carson??

His father killed my own parents!!!!

My heart hurts so much!

“Riley are you okay? “Daniel asked rushing to me…..


I stepped back more than a thousand paces when I saw the news.

“That’s not true “I kept telling myself.

“It can’t be…”

I won’t live a normal life being a killer’s son!

Not only that,


She’s suffering because of me!

She’s going through hell because of me!


This isn’t real,

I sat down on the floor and began to cry,

With my back on the wall,

I dug my two hands into my hair,

What’s wrong?

How did everything go wrong?

It was from the first time I met her and began to love her.


I don’t think I will be able to face her in my life again,

I don’t think I will live a normal life again,

I don’t think Riley will look at me just like she used to,

I don’t think she will spend so extravagantly on me again just to keep me happy,

I don’t think our paths will ever cross again,


Why did my dad do such a thing?

Riele’s father too!

If everyone must hurt Riley… It shouldn’t be me,

It shouldn’t be me at all,

“Hey get yourself up!

You’re coming with me”a guy who stood infront of me was speaking,

“Why? “I asked trembling,

“You’re needed now,

Here take this phone and speak to the last person you think you have to talk to”he said and I was stirred up by the word he mentioned; LAST PERSON… does he mean am going to die?

I won’t care,

I don’t think I will live my life alone with the guilt that I hurt Riley so greatly,

I will call her,

If she doesn’t pick up,

I will drop a voice message for her,

I want her to live well without me,

“I give you five seconds”he ordered and I dialed her number sharply,

My heart was racing as I brought my phone close to my ear,

Pick up… Pick up… Pick up…

My heart was singing and I was lucky,


My heart missed as I heard her voice,

Her voice was trembling as someone who was crying.


📲I’m on my way to the show,

Hang on a bit for me,

I’m going to save you.

📲Riley I’m sorry,

📲Its not your fault… I missed you Carson and I want to see your face once again,

Hang in there for me Carson,

I will use all those styles you taught me and I’m going to get you out,


…… I have to stop this… I have to stop bringing pain to her,

📲Carson just have faith in me….

📲I don’t love you anymore,

I mumbled even before I could stop it from slipping out of my lips….

Oh my gosh😖😖😖
