💋 Chapter Six💋

Asher got to where Cora was. Crystal stared at the photos she took with her. She giggled.
“Thank you so much. I can’t wait to show my friends….and I think, you have a guest” she said and nodded at her brother behind her. Cora turned and stared at Asper. Crystal quickly left that place.

“Hey.. Cora” he said.

Cora folded her arms, staring at him. She was giving him the impression that she doesn’t want to talk to him.

“What?” She replied.

“Relax. I just want to talk to you” he said.

“About what?” She asked.

“F*cking calm down already. Do you think I enjoy the fact that I’m standing before you?” He asked.

She scoffed and looked away from him.
“I don’t want to hear you. Just leave” she said and turned to leave. He grabbed her arm and pulled her back.

“I don’t want to marry you”

“I also don’t want to marry you. Do you think any woman would want to spend her beautiful life with a bloody fool like you?” She asked. Asher shot his mouth wide open and gasped.

“Did you just insult me? No woman has ever done that. How could you?!” He asked, almost yelling.

“Why? You wanna beat me up?” She asked. She wasn’t scared at all.

“You are unbelievable Cora. They were right, you’ve changed a lot” he said, staring at her from her head to her toe.
She scoffed.

“I have better things to do than to look at you” she said and left.
Asher gr0-ned and slipped his hands into his pocket. He couldn’t believe what just happened.
Hudson walked towards him, watching Cora as she left.

“So? What did she say?” He asked.

“That girl is so annoying. She just insulted me” he said.

“I never expected that. Cora could chang so much. She isn’t the petty rich girl from before. She’s now..bold, beautiful, hot, se..”

“That’s enough!” Asher said and walked away.
Cora walked to her father.
“Dad, I have an interview. I have to go now” she said. Mr Brooks stared at his daughter.

“Sure, you can. Be safe okay?” He said. She nodded and waved at Mr Grayson.

“Bye dear” he said. After she left, they continued with their games.

Cora walked pass her mother.
“Bye Mom!”

“Wait Cora, excuse me” she said to Mrs Grayson and walked to her daughter.

“Have you seen Asher? Did you both talk?” She asked.

“Yes Mom, I did. I have to go. Come on Thelma” she said and left. She watched as her daughter left, she sat down.

“Your daughter is very beautiful” Mrs Grayson said.

“Oh yes, you are right” she blushed.
When it was night, Cora was already back from her interview. Thelma was checking the news.

“Woah! A lot of people are following you after the interview. Aren’t you the lucky b!tch?”

“That’s not my problem Thelma. I don’t care about the number of people following me. I just need to find a way to help dad’s company so that I won’t have to get married to Asher” she said, hugging herself like she was cold.

Thelma dropped the phone and walked towards her friend.
“Do you really have to do that? You are making things hard for yourself. Just get married to him and… That’s all”

“That’s all? How on earth can you say that? I should forget about the things that bloody fool did to me”

“I understand what he did but… It’s all in the past now. Just forget about it”

“I can’t believe you’ll be saying this. You should leave, I’m tired” she said and walked to her bed. She covered herself with the duvet and placed her head on the pillow.

“Switch off the light on your way out. There’s no need coming tomorrow. I have nothing to do” she said. Thelma sighed and walked out of the room. She switched off the light as her friend instructed.
Asher walked out of the bathroom, wrapping a towel on his waist. He raised his head and saw his sister sitting down by his computer.
“What the f*ck?! Get out!” He yelled.

“What? I’ve seen it before, stop hiding it” she said and rolled her eyes.

“Get lost Crystal!” He yelled again.

“I just checked your browser history, instead of watching a lot of p*rn, get to work and make dad proud”

“Who are you to lecture me? Just leave!” He yelled again. Crystal stood up and walked towards her brother.

“I’m not lecturing you big bro… I’m here to warn you”

“Warn me? About what?” He asked like he was interested in what his sister was saying.

“You have to get married to Cora no matter what”

“Why are you suddenly reminding me?”
Mrs Grayson walked into her husband’s office in the mansion.
“What are you talking about?” She asked.

“I know they both hate each other, but Asher must get married to Cora! I don’t care what it takes”

Crystal was walking to the kitchen when she heard her father’s voice. She leaned by the door and started eavesdropping.

“I’m going to try to talk to him” she said.

“You’d better do. If he doesn’t get married to her, I won’t give him the right no own any of my company” he said. Crystal heard that and closed her mouth in shock.
“What?! How can father say that?!” Asher yelled after hearing his sister’s narration.

“So, you have to do what you have to do” she said and folded her arm.

“I know that is kidding. I’m his only son. He can’t possibly give someone else the company, not even you. You’re just a girl”

“I know that I’m a girl. But I’m more responsible than you. You are just a person who only have eyes girls and nothing else. Man up and f*cking do what you have to do. I don’t want the company anyway. I want to be like my role model, Cora Brooks” she said and walked out of her brother’s room.

Asher gr0-ned and kicked his foot again his table. It hurt him but he didn’t have the time to care about pain now.
Cora was jogging round the mansion. She was panting hard after going round the mansion ten time. She stared at the time and exhaled deeply. She was feeling dirty already. She needed to have her bath. She walked towards the entrance that was when she saw a car driving into the compound. She paused and stared at the car. The butler ran and opened the door. He bowed as the person walked out.
She saw it was her brother. Her lips curved into a weird smile as she walked towards him.

“Hey” she said. Her brother frowned.

“Hey? Is that what you can say to your brother that you haven’t seen for almost three years?” He asked.

She smiled.
“What else should I have said?” She asked.

“Come on, hug me!” He said.

“No… I can’t. I’m all sweaty” she replied.

“Argh, come here you!” He said and pulled his sister. He hugged her.

“Welcome home dumdum!” She said. He raised his head and stared at her.

“Really? Are you gonna call me that now?” He asked as he went after his sister. She ran into the house, laughing.
Mrs Brooks was having breakfast with her husband when she heard someone laughing.
She saw her daughter and someone behind.

“Oh, my son is back” he said and stood up.

“I’m gonna beat your daughter mom” he said.

“Oh please, don’t touch her. She’s my jewel” she said jokingly.

“Oh mom! I missed you so much” he said and hugged his mother.

“No hug for me?” He heard his father’s voice and walked towards him. He wrapped his arms around him and hugged him.

“I missed you too dad” he said.

“I missed you too son” he replied.

“Come on! Sit let’s have breakfast together” Mrs Brooks said.

“I have to shower” she said.

“Yeah, me too. Cora hugged me with her sweaty body” he said, looking disgusted.

“I told you not to hug me first” she shot her brother a hard glare.

“Argh!” He shook his head and walked towards the stairs. Cora followed behind.

“Those two are crazy fighters”
Jack was in Cora’s room, listening to the story of her life.
He just continued scooping ice cream into his mouth as he listened.

“So, they tried to blackmail you but.. the security camera caught everything?”

“Yeah. It’s so stupid”

“That’s what I hate about being a celebrity. You can’t live a simple and private life” Jack said.

“I got him two days ago only to meet a marriage proposal” she said in a low tone.

“From who? Who are you getting married to?” He asked and ate another spoon of ice cream.

“Asher Grayson”

“What?!” He spat out the ice cream and gazed at his sister.

💋 Chapter Seven💋

Cora rolled her eyes when she saw the mess her brother just created in her room.
“Do you have to spit that sh!t out?!” She yelled at her brother.
Jack placed the bucket of ice cream on the table and walked towards Cora.

“There’s no how I’m gonna let you get married to Asher” he said.

“Great, then help me” she said.
Mr and Mrs Brooks just sat with their face down in the sitting room as they listened to what their some have been saying about Asher and Cora’s marriage.

“Jack… You know the reason for doing this. I know I have no right to make any choice for Cora but for the sake of the company, we have to get her married to Asher” their father said.
Jack shook his head.

“There are other business men and women that would do this the right way and not through marriage contract. Why not meet with them instead?” He asked.

“Yeah, why not them?” Cora asked.
He sighed and walked towards Cora.

“I won’t force you dear. You are free to do what pleases you. I’ll hand over the company to Jack once all is well” he said and left.

Jack and Cora stared at each other and back at their mother.
“Mom?” She called out.

“Cora, your father loves you and wants the best for you. No woman would want to get married to Asher, I know that’s why they chose a marriage proposal. You can think this through, if not for you, for your father” she said and left.

“I hate talking to mom and dad. They’ll end up blackmailing me emotionally” Cora gr0-ned and threw herself on the couch.
Jack sat beside her and placed his hands on her shoulder.

“It’s not too late. We can work this out” he said.
Asher adjusted his jacket as he ran down the stairs. He bumped into Crystal.

“Argh!” He gr0-ned.

“Watch where you are going a**hole!” She said and kept on walking.
Asher stopped walking and turned to face his sister. He ran upstairs and grabbed her hair.

“What did you just call me?” He asked.

“Ouch… Leave me alone Asher!” She yelled, trying to get herself away from his strong grip.

“You… Leave me alone. I don’t want to see you in my path again” he said and pushed her away. She fell on the stairs and stared at her brother.

“Jeez, he is bad again…” She scoffed.
“Asher? Where are you off too? It’s so early” his mother’s voice stopped him..

“Can’t I leave the house anymore? Or am I restricted from going out?” He asked as he stared at his mother.

“How dare you speak to your mother that way Asher?!” His father appeared.

He silently gr0-ned and looked away from them.
“Just leave me..” he said and tried to take a step away from them.

“Asher! Don’t dare me!” His father yelled. He quickly walked to his father angrily.

“Why can’t you leave me f*ck alone? Why?!! If I leave, what will you do? Take away my license, block my cards or… Give my right to own the company to another person?” He asked, still yelling. His father stepped back a little from him.

“What do you mean Asher?”

“Asher, you have to relax” his mother added, looking tensed and scared.

“Don’t tell me.. to f*cking calm down. Don’t! Why? Why do I have to get married to Cora when I don’t want to?”

“It is a must. I don’t think anyone would get married to you Asher, you are.. not just a man yet”

Asher shook his head and turned. He just walked out of the house, even as his parents were yelling his name. He got to the car and slammed the door. He just started the engine and zoomed off.

His face was red as he drove, that was to show how angry he was.
“You asked me to meet you here, what happened?” Hudson asked Asher. He was conscious of the location Asher picked. He wondered how Asher could ask to meet in a low class restaurant.

“Yes Hudson, I need to talk to Cora and it’s urgent. Ask her to meet me here or.. I’ll be forced to go to her house” he said.

“Sure, I will try calling her” Hudson said and walked out of the restaurant. He didn’t enjoy the way everyone was glancing at Asher.
He picked his phone and called Cora’s number that he found online.
“Oh, hello miss Cora”

“This is Thelma, Cora’s manager speaking. How can I be of help?”
He heard Thelma’s voice and rolled his eyes.

“F*ck! I never knew it was you, I need to speak to Cora immediately” he said.

“She isn’t available at the moment. You’re have to try tomorrow” she said.

“Are you crazy? It’s urgent!”

“Why don’t you tell me what’s happening then I’ll see if it’s urgent or not?” She asked, not showing any sign of interest.

“Look Thelma… Gi…” Before he could complete his sentence, someone grabbed his phone from behind.

“Look Thelma..”
As Thelma heard Asher’s voice, she swallowed hard.

“Uh uh…” She replied, with her breath shaking.

“I need Cora in the address immediately, you have thirty minutes. You know what I can do if she doesn’t appear” he said and handed the phone back to Hudson. He turned and marched into the restaurant. Hudson knew something was wrong with his friend, but that wasn’t the right time to talk to him about it.
He gave a loud sigh and walked in also.
“Please Cora, we need to go!” Thelma appeared in Cora’s house after five minutes, pleading with her to come see Asher.

“I thought I told you not to show up today huh? Do you want to get fired?” She asked in reply.

“You’ve asked me that more than a hundred times, please just quit it and come with me” Thelma cried again.

“I don’t want to.. just go. It’s Sunday!” She replied.

“To see who?”
Thelma turned and saw Jack.

“Jack? You’re back?” She asked.

“As you can see” he replied and walked into his sister’s room.

“I need her to follow me to see Asher. It’s important. He used that tone again!” She said.

“Why are you scared of that a**hole?!” Cora asked and rolled her eyes. She understand that Thelma was still a bit scared of what Asher did to her in the past but they were all in the past now.

“Please, I know I’m scared. Just let’s go. He threatened to…”
Cora raised her head and stared at Thelma.

“That sh!thead threatened you, huh? Why didn’t you tell me that since?” She asked and left the bed. She walked into her closet and got dressed.

“I’d also come. I don’t want Cora to cause a scene” Jack said and left. Thelma sat on the bed and wiped the tears off her eyes. She stared at the wristwatch and sniffed in. She still had fifteen minutes left.
“You can’t come with us Jack” Cora said to her brother as she wanted to enter the car.

“Why can’t I? I’m bored at home, let’s just leave” he said.

“No Jack” she said again. Jack pushed her inside the car and sat in the front seat with the driver.

“Let’s go” he said.
They drove to the location. They were lucky that there wasn’t much traffic on the road.
“Hurry!” Thelma yelled at the driver. Both siblings turned to stare at Thelma, giving her a questioning look.

“Relax, nothing will happen” she said.

“I don’t get why you are so scared of Asher. He isn’t that scary”

“You aren’t the only one not scared of him. I don’t care what the says or do to me. I won’t let him win!” Cora said, staring into the thin air.
Minutes later, they got to the location. Cora wore her sunglasses and wrapped her face with a scarf. She didn’t want anyone to know she was here.

“Let’s go already” Thelma opened the door for her and she gently stepped down from the car.

Jack sniffed in and walked in, following his sister behind.
“They are here Asher” Hudson said to Asher when he saw Thelma. He could recognize her from afar.

“Great, lead them this way” he said with his low voice. The voice that could not explain what was going on at all.

Hudson walked towards them.
“Hi, this way” he said and wanted to turn.

“Wait, why does he want to see me so badly?” Cora asked Hudson.

“Even I have no idea, this way please” he said and led them to his table.
Cora walked towards his table and placed her purse on the table. She could see everyone staring at her, they wanted to know who she was.

“Why did you call me here?” She asked.

“You are three minutes late” he said, not raising his head to stare at her.

“You have no right to decide what time I see you” she said.

“What did you say?” He asked, acting like he didn’t hear her.

“She said.. you have no right to decide what time she comes to see you, Asher!”

Asher heard that voice, followed with the tone he used to call his name. He quickly raised his head and sprung up. He saw Jack, smirking at him. His heart started racing as he swallowed hard.

“Senior…” He called out, with a shaky voice.
Senior… Asher?
