(Mum brought her)
By Simrah Saeed Hareerah
???? Evan ????
” It’s beautiful but did you think she will like this?” I asked Vette who gave me a reassuring nod.
” Yes Sir, it’s going to fit perfectly on her body and she will love it ” she replied.
I tossed the gown in my hand. No doubt, it’s very beautiful .
Seriously I didn’t have a peaceful sleep yesterday, I couldn’t even sleep because I was nervous about today.
I have to rush out of the house early this morning to get her a dress.
At least she have to wear something nice to her birthday party.
I am sure going to change her wardrobe after today’s event.
” Okay, thank you Vette, how about the beauticians?” I asked .
Vette? That’s Nora’s manager in her fashion house.
I don’t have to buy this dress, she sew it and it’s so beautiful.
” They will be here very soon Sir ” I nodded sitting down patiently waiting for them to arrive.
They need to work some magic on my Nora.
She hasn’t celebrated her birthday in years now but not anymore.
” They are here ”
My head snapped towards the door as three women walked in carrying some boxes.
” Good morning Sir ” they chorused
” Yeah, you are welcome now shall we?” I gestured
” Yes Sir ”
” Alright then, thank you Vette ” I passed her an appreciative smile.
” It’s nothing Sir ”
Now, let the game begin ! I just hope my idiot best friend is doing his job and not still sleeping because I gave him a day off to help me with the rearrangement .
Gosh! I pray Nora believes any lie I am going to tell her to get her out of the house.
Thank goodness mum’s around…
????️ Nora ????️
” Wake up hunny, you need to take your bath, take your morning tea and come down for breakfast then I will introduce you to the maids ”
I lazily opened my eyes and sat up on the bed.
” Good morning Mum ” I greeted removing the duvet from my body.
Why’s she hear instead of Evan? He normally wakes me up every morning.
” Morning baby, stand up already or should I bathe you?” She said and I shook my head.
Bathe me! This woman can be funny, I am just pregnant, I am not a baby.
” I will just take my bathe and meet you downstairs Mum ”
I sprang on my feet and she nodded
” Will be waiting and be quick ”
I nodded hastily rushing my tea before dashing into the bathroom.
It’s my 22nd birthday today and no one to wish me a happy birthday.
Even Evan left without wishing me a happy birthday. Heck!
I chuckled to myself knowing that he doesn’t know about my birthday.
I wouldn’t blame anyone, I never told them.
My mind went back to the last birthday I celebrated with my parents.
My 12th birthday, Mum got me a necklace I carelessly lost. It was her last gift to me and so I cherished it a lot but I lost it the day my landlord threw me out of his house .
My belongings were scattered all over the place , since then it disappeared.
Dad got me a box of chocolates, you know right, I love chocolates.
I really miss them so much.
A tear escaped my eyes remembering them. If they are to be here, just maybe, I wouldn’t have lived in someone’s house before they will throw me out.
I wouldn’t have even become a maid just to survive.
I used to be their princess! Their everything and they left me just like that.
I allowed the water to wash over me , I don’t really wish to stand up from here.
The cold water gives me strength and wash my pains away.
Sighing, I came out of the bathtub tying my towel around me before coming out of the bathroom.
I stood in front of the mirror drying up my body and my hair.
I combed my hair tying it in a bun. Then dashing to my closet to find a simple wear.
It’s my birthday, I ought to be happy not turning into an emotional wreck right now.
I need to be happy even if it’s just for today although since I came into this house, I have had a real rest of mind.
With Evan in my life, he’s eased a lot of things for me.
My life is just taking a turn, from being a maid to having thorns of maid and becoming a boss.
I haven’t been to my fashion house in two days now, maybe I should go there then go have fun today.
I have to create a good memory from today.
I am not to cry today like I always do on my birthday after my parent’s death .
That have to change and stop!
” Are you done Nora?” Mum’s voice came in through the door
” Yes Mum, I am coming ”
” Here’s Lisa, she will be your personal maid ” Mum introduced and I smiled at the Lisa who bowed her head smiling too.
At least it won’t be boring in the house.
” This is Bina, the cook , beside her are Kate and Mag , they are in charge of cleaning the house and taking care of the laundries ”
Wow! All work lifted off me.
” Good afternoon ma’am ” they greeted simultaneously.
Life can be unpredictable! I never believe I will ever have people working under me.
” Yeah, good afternoon and you are all welcome ” I said not knowing what else to say.
” You can all go back to your duty post and Bina, make sure the lunch is ready on time ” mum instructed and she nodded.
I wonder where Evan went to. He’s not yet back home or Maybe he went to work.
This is almost 3pm .
Ahh! Talk of the devil!
The door opened and he came in with some ladies.
Huh? Who are they?
” You are back Son ” mum said excitedly
” Yes Mum, I am so tired ” he replied coming towards me .
He held me by the waist kissing my earlobe .
My cheeks turned red seeing that people are here.
Isn’t he ashame? Gosh!
Seriously? He’s tired but not tired of holding me.
” Hey cupcake ” I glared at him and he quickly got the message chuckling.
” I am sorry I left very early without seeing you cupcake, something came up that needed my attention ”
” Afternoon ladies ” mum said.
Oops ! I forgot they are still here.
” Afternoon ma’am ”
” Well cupcake, they are beauticians ” Evan said while I narrowed my eyes at him
Beauticians? What are they doing here ?
” I brought them to change your look because I am taking you somewhere ”
Somewhere? I blinked my eyes staring at him them Mum.
Seems she knows about it.
” Somewhere? ” I found myself asking.
” Yes cupcake somewhere, there’s something I will love to show you so they have to make you up ” he replied smiling.
He’s confusing me the more!
” If you are taking me somewhere, you don’t have to bring beauticians Evan ” I protested
” Stop complaining hunny, you will love it when they do some magic on your face and body ” Mum shipped in and I sighed.
But what are they up to?
” O..okay ” I surrendered
” Alright cupcake, take them to your room and here, this is the dress she will wear ”
I glanced at him and he grinned.
Two hours later…
” I am tired of sitting down already, are you not done?” I asked frustrated .
It’s been hours since they have been shifting my head my neck and doing something on my face.
” We are almost done ma’am, bring the dress ” she said to one them who brought it from the bed.
She brought out a red gown and handed it to me.
Wow! This is beautiful!
” Put it on ma’am ” she instructed.
I zipped down the gown wearing it from my leg before removing the towel .
They zipped it up for me making me sit again arranging my hair.
” Done, you can check the mirror ”
I briskly stood up to the mirror and my jaw dropped.
This isn’t me is it?
I touched my face staring at the girl in the mirror.
I look so freaking stunning. I don’t even know it’s me at first.
Everything changed and the gown fits perfectly on my body bringing out my curves and shapes.
I look so hot like a model ….
” You look beautiful ” one of them complimented .
” Thank you ”
” Are you not done? I am all set cupcake”
My heart began racing as I heard the voice.
He’s going to see me like this, will I be able to walk? Goodness!
” I…I am done, will be down in two ” I stammered .
What do I have to do again? The ladies left my room and I followed suit well, nervously!
I walked majestically and carefully so that this heel won’t fall me, I can’t risk being disgraced.
Evan was patiently waiting for me as I came down.
” I am here ”
He turned to face me and his mouth opened in surprise?
I shifted uncomfortably as he stared at me without looking away.
I bowed my head in discomfort and he seems out of this world.
Why’s he staring at me like a creep? Am I that bad?
I cleared my throat and he blinked before smiling at me.
” You look f*”king gorgeous cupcake, I just wish to slam you on one if the couch and have you right now, you are so beautiful”
My cheeks heat up immediatetly. I am going to melt.
” T..thank you ” I stuttered bowing my head.
He groaned taking my hand in his and I could swear I felt some electricity run down my body.
” I am going to pluck the eyes of any idiot that stares at you today ” he gritted which made me chuckle.
We went to his car and he opened the door for me like a gentleman he is.
Then he entered and drove off. I wonder where he’s taking me to this evening and Mum? She left too.
