The Accidental Bride.
After settling at an hotel , my phone rang. I was lost in thoughts thinking of where I would get money to rent a house. I only paid for two days here. I do not have any hope of getting money once the two days are expired.
The phone rang again and I picked it this time.
There was silence from the other end.
“And who is this?” I asked.
“Elizabeth.” I recognized the voice immediately to be that of Mr. Ashley Romeo.
“How did you get my number?” I asked.
“How are you doing, fake bride?” He asked.
“Fake husband, I’m fine.”
There was silence again.
“How can I help you?” I asked.
“I should be the one asking that, can I help you pay three extra days more at the hotel.” He asked.
Does this guy have supernatural power or what cause I don’t understand how he always get to know everything about me.
“Are you spying me or what?” I asked.
“Maybe I should mind my business then.” He hung up.
Gosh! He really knew I needed this money and that there is no way I could afford to pay extra days.
I was obstinate for the rest of the day.
Following day; I realized that I only have few hours to spend at the hotel.
I had to keep my pride and phone him.
As I expected, he was silent.
“Hello, Mr Ashley Romeo.”
He wasn’t replying but I could hear his breath.
“Aren’t you going to answer me?” I asked.
“You have only called my name. Go straight to the point, or do you perhaps call me to call my name? Okay, maybe that it’s what you really phone me for. Yes? ” he then hung up.
Why is he acting his way.
I phoned him again and he picked it.
“I…need money, if you can help.” I requested.
“And if I can’t help, I guess you will have to sleep outside.” He said.
“Just help me pay three days more and I will have hustled money before then, or borrow me , I will pay you back.” I said.
“Okay, I’d prefer borrowing you then, so how much?” He asked.
“Just my three days stay here. About $9,000”
“Not bad, and when will you pay me?” He asked.
“After seven days…no no! After 14 days.” I said.
“And what if you did not pay?”
“Do whatever you want. ” I replied.
“Well, if you did not pay me after fourteen days, you will be my six slave for three days, agreed?” He asked.
