Summer Picnic – Episode 7
Theme: Baby finds daddy a soulmate
Written by Pinky Preshy Chioma
Mr Alex’s Pov:
I watched the kids wail and cry.
Oh baby Kira….
Where the heck are you?
They have refused to eat, drink or even bath.
All the my did was bury their faces on their pillows and weep themselves to bed.
This picnic is meant to be a fun!
It was meant to be a bonding time for my kids and I.
But it turned to a horrible nightmare.
I was still lost in thought when my cell phone rang aloud.
It was the police inspector.
I picked up the cell phone.
Hello inspector…. I said
Uhmm… Mr Cruz I have a vital information for you…. He said
What is it?… I asked anxiously.
It’s about your daughter Kira… She’s been found!… He said as my eyes widened.
Oh my goodness! Really? Am coming over right now…. I said as I quickly hung up.
My heart was filled with excitement.
I rushed into the kid’s room.
“Guess what kids?” I said almost screaming
“What daddy?” Nicholas asked sulking
“It’s baby Kira… She has been found” I said happily as they jumped up from the bed.
I could see smiles on their faces.
“Yippee……” they rejoiced.
They got dressed immediately as they insisted on going to the station with me.
I drove into the police station and parked my car.
We rushed into the station.
The police stared at us and smiled.
The kids were so excited.
We’ve really missed baby Kira so much.
“Baby!” Sandy called as we saw baby Kira.
A beautiful young girl was carrying her.
I didn’t see her face because she was backing us.
Baby chuckled in excitement as she kicked her legs and hands.
Sandy rushed to the lady and hugged her.
I shook hands with the inspector happily.
“Thank you for a well done job Mr inspector” I said
“Well all thanks to Miss Marga Dantes for finding baby and bringing her to the station” the inspector said
The name rang in my ears.
“Marga?” I asked anxiously as the inspector nodded.
“Yes sir!” He said
“Can I see her?” I asked anxiously as he pointed at her.
“That’s her!” He said as I turned around.
I turned around and saw her already playing with my kids.
Are they close already?
Her face looks very familiar….
I walked closer to her.
Isn’t she the girl I almost knocked down a few days back?
“Marga!” I called as she turned and stared at me in astonishment.
“I know you…” She said.
“You almost knocked me down the other day… I almost knocked you down the other day” We said unison and laughed.
Baby Kira cling to her like she have known her for ages.
And now the kids Sandy, Nicky and Nicholas were also touching her long hair.
She’s so lovable.
And of course very beautiful…
Mother and I shivered as father walked up and down restlessly giving us a stern look.
We are so dead right now….
I can’t believe we poured the chilli water on him
Our legs became jelly and goose bumps ran down our spines.
“what was that supposed to mean?” Dad yelled at us and she shivered.
“Uh… Erm… Errr… We just wanted to throw the water away” Mother managed to say.
“Shut up! You want to throw the water away right? Where is Marga?” He asked as I gulped nervously.
Mother and I glanced at each other.
Words refused to come out of our mouths.
Cold gripped us.
“She went out!” I said defensively
He grinned at us making us feel so uneasy.
“Where to Celine?” He asked with a deep voice.
“She… She… Uhmm…. I don’t know” Mother said
“You don’t know? Listen both of you, I know you are lying and let me warn you, nothing I mean nothing should happen to my daughter else….” He said
We were dying in anxiety.
“I don’t want to look for my daughter… She’d better be home before dawn else…” He warned again as he walked away.
I breathed heavily as mother scratched her hair in confusion.
“Where do we look for her?” we said in unison.
I got down from the car with the kids all over me.
They were already so fond of me.
Well they insisted I go home with them.
And Mr Alexander….
He’s so cute and charming.
I kept avoiding eye contact with him.
Mere talking to him made me feel butterflies in my stomach.
Wow! Their house was so nice.
We got into the mansion with the children chattering and laughing.
Mr Alex held my hand and smiled.
“Thank you!” He said as he pecked me.
My jaw dropped…
Did he just kissed my cheek?
Oh no! I hope I don’t drool over him again.
We sat on the dinning eating.
Actually I made lunch.
“Yummy… Aww Miss Marga you’re such a good cook” Sandy said happily.
“Thank you dear!” I smiled as Mr Alex winked at me and I blushed.
“You know Miss Marga I wish you could live here with us so that you can teach Sandy how to cook delicious meal and teach me how to play rock paper scissors” Nicky said as we shared a laugh.
“Oh really? you’re nothing but a play girl” Mr Alex added
“But it’s true daddy I mean so that Sandy can learn how to cook that way daddy won’t cook pepper sauce instead of tomato sauce” Nicholas laughed
The children laughed at Mr Alex and I chuckled.
“Pepper sauce?” I asked
“Yes… Dad is really a bad cook” Nicky said as Mr Alex covered his face with his palms and we laughed.
Suddenly, there was a knock on the door.
“I’ll get the door” Mr Alex said as he got up and walked to the door.
He threw the door open and a pretty sophisticated lady walked in with a big bag.
Mr Alex looked at her shocked.
“What’s up baby?” She smiled mischievously.
“BELLA!” Mr Alex called in shock….
