What? Who are the they and why did they want us dead?
I blinked in utter confusion as he breathed out.
” The day you turned 11 was the day I won a medal worth millions of naira, it was as if your birthday brought that luck for me ”
” Your mum and I was very happy because we will be living a comfortable life after I invest the money and we will be able to give you all that you ever wanted as a child ”
” When they brought the huge amount of money for me, they brought it directly to my office where I work as a clerical staff remember? ”
He said and I nodded even if I can’t remember.
” I wasn’t in the company when they came they met my boss , he collected the money from them after promising he was going to give me when I arrive at the company ”
” But he never did and in the rule that guide the money was that, it can be given out to anyone if I or any of my family members are dead ”
” He wanted to be in the possession of the money and so he came for our lives”
” He killed your mother and thought you died with her so he came after me ”
” I had to make sure you were out of our house by any means because I was sure they were going to come there so I framed you up for stealing and the owner of the apartment sent you out ”
Huh? Was that why I was sent out at twelve? I knew I never stole the golden bracelet of her daughter.
” I am sorry I did that but I had to just to protect you ”
” I left this city to hide somewhere safe, I couldn’t take you with me , I know gab is a very dangerous man, he could track me and get me anytime ”
” If I had to die, I wouldn’t let my precious daughter die with me so he took everything I laboured for thinking I was dead ”
” Even after I left, I knew every of your movement, I always look out for you Nora to make sure no harm comes to you ”
” I just cake back last two years when I had enough money to forward the case to court ”
” The case lasted for a year and half. Gab was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder and possession of someone’s properties ”
” I got my money back, everything! I got it back last few months and I decided it was time to go out and look for my daughter”
” What made it more hard for me was that I lost every info of you, that was when you went into the Evan’s mansion ”
” I wanted taking you with force like inform of kidnaping you are to scare you a little, I know my princess can be a scary cat but when I heard Evan was planning a birthday party for you, I got a change of plan, that was why I showed up at your party ”
” And the men out there? They are just for protection ”
I breathed out after listening to everything. Was it tears of joy or sadness that Mum isn’t here to witness this day?
I wish I can see that godforsaken man and tear him apart! He killed my Mum. My role model!
Dad came towards me hugging me while I placed my head on his shoulder.
How can one stupidly be comfortable enjoying someone’s sweat? That he have to kill us huh?
How heartless can he be?
” It’s okay baby, we are fine now and I miss Handel so much like you do but she’s in a better place now ” he patted my back gently while I sniffed in tears.
At least, I am glad everything is fine now and the fact that I have my Dad with me now.
To top it all, he’s handsomely rich! Stinking wealthy!
” Dinner’s ready, let’s go eat something ” he said holding me up.
I wonder how he will react if he knows I am pregnant! Gosh!
???? Evan ????
I tossed on the bed dialing her number. I feel so empty without Nora with me.
My face lit up seeing she picked up almost immediately.
???? Cupcake, I freaking miss you????
She chuckled before replying
???? seriously Evan? You are unbelievable! I just left few hours ago and you will see me by tomorrow ????
???? Yeah whatever, I just miss you, I miss touching you, I miss holding your tiny waist, I miss seeing your little baby bump, I miss kissing your soft lips, I…????
???? Evan! You have gone crazy ????
She cuts in laughing which made me smile. Her laugh is freaking contagious!
???? I can only be crazy when I am with you cupcake, so tell me, how are you catching up with your Dad?????
???? Yeah! We are getting along like before real quick, I am glad he’s not dead and he came back for me ????
I nodded thinking she was here to see me.
???? I am happy to see you happy cupcake, that’s my number one priority ????
???? Awwn, I am so loved ???? she said giggling and I smiled.
???? I have always love you cupcake ????
???? And I love you to Evan ????
I quickly sat on the bed taking the phone from my ear. She didn’t just say that did she?
???? I think I am having ear problem, repeat that again ????
???? I love you Evan ????
She didn’t stammer! Saviours! I have made it to the next level!
I groaned scoffing continuously!
Everyone in the room chuckled and I glared at them .
” You don’t mean it right?” I said to Nora’s Dad and he chuckled.
” I mean it Son, she’s going to stay with me till after her marriage ”
That can’t happen! I can’t stay without her and everyone knows it .
” Okay then, can we do the marriage tomorrow already?”
Everyone burst out laughing but I didn’t see it as something funny.
I planned on doing the wedding when she puts to bed and that’s almost 5months from now, how did he expect me to cope ?
Five good months! What the heck?
” Seriously Evan, you want to get married tomorrow? Without any preparation done?” Mum asked laughing at me.
I never thought of that but is it necessary? I will just die if Nora leaves even for 48hours.
” You all have forgotten he have a chicken brain ” Adam shipped in and I glared hard at him. Idiot!
” She can’t stay with you for five months right cupcake?” I asked looking at her and she looked away smiling without replying
Okay! They all want to punish me!
” I will be going back with her ” he dropped the bombshell! What? Like is he kidding me?
” Then I am going with you both ” I replied with a serious expression.
Mum wanted saying something when the door bell rang!
I am not expecting anyone!
” I will go get it ” I replied standing up.
I turned the door knob and opened it and it was….
Jenny? What the hell?
