Theme: Baby finds daddy a soulmate
Written by Pinky Preshy Chioma
I walked into the sitting room with a bowl of popcorn and a glass of juice.
Am really so famished right now!
Like am so so hungry but hell no! I can’t cook.
Not like I’ve cook anytime.
I yawned hungrily as I ate the popcorn.
I sat on the couch with my legs crossed and seeing a movie.
I picked up my cell phone and dialed the number.
Hello… Good morning! This is Crunchy restaurants…how may we help you?… A voice echoed from the phone.
I rolled my eyes.
Well am calling to make an order for house service… I said
We’re all ears ma’am… The voice said again.
I guess it’s the customer care.
Hmm.. I want a full chicken sauce and basmati rice with uhmm…. veggies and salad… I said
Noted ma’am…. The voice said
Just send me the account details and I’ll pay in the money and I’ll send my address… I said
As you wish ma’am… The voice said again as I hung up.
I heaved a sigh as I continued watching TV
Just then, the door bell rang aloud.
Who could that be?
I thought as I got up and opened the door.
It was a young lady in a flimsy short dress.
I became green with envy.
I heard some footsteps from the stairs and turned around.
It was that nasty Sandy.
“Miss Marga you are here and….” Sandy said as she quickly shut her mouth immediately she saw the lady.
“Who are you?” Sandy and I asked in unison.
She smiled seductive… Smiling and looking at the stairs.
That was when I found out that Alex was also on the staircase.
Anger burnt through me.
“Bitch!” I muttered under my breath.
“Who is she?” Alex asked as she licked her lips seductively.
“Uhm.. Mr handsome you see am here for you” She said she winked at him.
I got so upset and for the first time, Sandy was also upset like on the same side with me.
“Can someone tell me what’s going on here? Who the heck is this lady daddy?” Sandy asked.
“I think I’ve seen your face somewhere” Alex said trying to recollect.
“Oh yes… Am Goldy and am Marga’s sister” She said as I furrowed my eyebrows.
“Marga’s sister?” Alex asked
“Could you at least let me in first” She said eyeing Alex
You know guys am beginning to hate this stupid girl so much.
She’s got an eye for my man….
“What are you doing here? I called Marga not you” Sandy said
“Well am here now so there will be no need for that stupid Marga and you little girl keep your mouth shut and stay out of this cos am here to get my sweetheart” She said walking towards Alex.
I groaned in anger.
As I stepped in front of her blocking her from stepping any further.
“Yuck! I hate this all… I prefer my Miss Marga” Sandy yelled as she rushed upstairs.
“You flirtatious bitch! Get out of here right now” I ordered as she smirked.
“And who are you?” She forced a smile
“I am not here to play games with you so I advise you to leave right now” I said controlling myself.
“Goldy or whatever you are called please take your leave” Alex said.
Goldy laughed hysterically as air kissed Alex.
I quickly gave her a dangerous glare and then a dirty slap throwing her off balance.
She held her cheek in shock.
she raised her hand to slap me back but I held her hand and pushed her off.
Giving her the worst beating of her life.
Punches, kickings and blows…
She became damn bloody as blood oozed out of her nose and mouth.
I don’t freaking give a fvck.
No damn bitch messes around with my man.
Alex separated us but she was already losing her breath.
I breathed heavily as I gulped hard.
I dragged her by the hair and pushed her roughly out of the house.
I backed Alex still fuming with anger.
“Bella what was that for?” Alex asked as I scoffed.
“Is that supposed to be a question or what? Aren’t you supposed to be apologizing to me” I groaned.
“Apologize to you? What for?” Alex asked
“Are you for real Alex? I just met your mistress” I said
“Oh please Bella I owe you no explanation you know why? Cos you are not my wife neither are you my girlfriend…excuse me!” He said as he walked away.
I fumed in anger as I threw the couch pillow away in annoyance.
That God forsaken flirt…..
I wish I had ripped off that eyes of hers.
The door bell rang again.
“Arrghhh… Which of the flirt is this again?” I groaned as I threw the glass of juice and it broke into pieces.
I quickly opened the door in anger.
“And what the hell are you doing here again you….” I said but I quickly stopped when I saw the scared messenger girl.
She almost collapsed in fear.
I blinked my eyes as I scratched my head.
“Uhmm… Ma’am your order” She said in fear.
“Am sorry and thanks” I said as I took the package.
I banged the door and sat heavily on the sofa placing the package on the table.
“Awwwchh…. Ouch… Easy mother!” I cried as mother applied some balm and hot water on my body.
believe me when I say that lady I met is crazy.
She almost killed me with punches.
My body aches and hurts so much.
“Mother that lady is a crazy woman” I wailed
“Why did you even go there in the first place?” Mother asked
“Mother you know how much I love that handsome rich man” I cried in pains.
“Now see what you’ve gotten yourself into” Mother blamed
“But I still wonder who that lady is” I said as I groaned in pain.
“Maybe his wife since you saw a kid…” Mother said
“No way! the little girl seems to love Marga a lot so that couldn’t be her mother’ I said
“Forget about them for now and focus on getting better” Mother said as she applied the balm again.
“Ahhh…… Take it easy mother!” I yelled
“Well am taking it easy young lady and maybe you need a new pair of ears” Mother said.
“I hate Marga so much… People always prefers her to me and I can’t wait to get her out of the way” I said in annoyance.
“What about the lady that beat you up?” Mother asked
“I’ll handle both… Mr Alex is mine” I said as I smirked in anger……
