???? ROSIANA ????
I got home that evening looking so stressed out. I had to prepare varieties of food for David’s kids to last them dinner and perhaps breakfast and lunch.
I did it to reduce David’s stress.. besides I couldn’t wait for him to return. I know he promised to repay me my money which he made me loose but, I just couldn’t wait.
My mom is sick and she needs me by her side. I already checked on her in the room when I came back and she’s still sleeping.
I don’t really know what’s wrong with her. She’s constantly sick and we do not have enough money to take her to the hospital for test.
With the little money I can afford, I buy her medicines from chemist to relieve her pains and treat her to get better for some time.
It hurts so much that I have little or no money to ty care of her. I’m her only child and all responsibilities rests ony shoulders.
Now the only thing I managed to do to get little savings just got thwarted. Dean fired me this morning and insisted on a second chance if only I sleep with him.
He wants me on his bed and also made a promise that if I do it, he would take care of my mom’s hospital bills till she gets Well.
I bluntly refused countless if times and that’s why he never considered anything when he fired me.
I had told my mom once about his proposal but she sternly warned against it. She warned me not to by any circumstance sell myself to that ‘pig’ … A name she had called him.
I had to tell my mom about it cause I was feeling selfish for not doing something about her condition.
I felt guilty and I had to tell her. But she went against such decision and even adviced me to quit the job.
I didn’t listen. I mean, there was no possible way to earn a living if I quit the job.
But now, it’s lost. And I wonder what will become of me.
Still whirling myself in my thoughts, my phone suddenly Buzzed. I picked it up and checked the ID
“Vickie” I smiled as I picked it.
“Babe what’s up? ” She spoke out.
“Not so good you know, ” I sighed out tiredly.
“You sound so tired. Hope you’ aren’t still thinking of what Dean did?” She sounded so concerned.
“I’m just confused Vickie. Dean’s Restaurant was the only place I got meager savings. Especially from the customers. I don’t really know what to do now. I think it’s time I look for another job. Even If not as a cook, as a cleaner or anything… I’m good to go”
I reduced my voice. I don’t really want my mom to hear me. She might be awake now.
“Cleaner? Are you sure you okay with such a job?” She asked.
I could sense the doubt in her voice.
“I’m okay with anything. So far it fetches me something. Anything at all to take care of Mama. ”
I stated. Almost in tears.
“Okay.. if it’s what you want. I think I can help you with that.”
“Oh really! I love you so much Vickie..” I quickly wiped off my teary face..
“Eewww! Save that for your boyfriend!” She sounded disgusted and I laughed out.
“Not like I have any. Stupid!” I scoffed teasingly.
“It’s high time you get yourself one.. you know” she sounded serious.
“I know, when the time comes” I rolledy eyes
“You’re twenty four. Rosiana.. when is the he Time gonna come?” She drawled my name.
“You’re an assh0le!” I poked my lips and she roared out in laughter.
“Night. Night” she whispered and ended the call.
A smile stretched on my lips as I placed the phone back on the chair.
Vickie is definitely one in a million.
“When were you planning to tell me you lost your job”
I heard Mama’s voice from the room-door and it startled me.
I swiftly turned to face her and saw her standing frailly. The sickness reallyade her look older than her age.
“It’s nothing mom” I stood up and walked over to her
“Dean fired me and yes, I’ll start a hunt for a new job okay”
I placed a kiss on her hair and led her back into the room.
I don’t want her to worry about anything.
???? DAVID ????
“Just one more spoon”… Janietta instructed as the three of them watched me dish out some food that night for myself.
I stared at them in puzzlement and they stared Back with all seriousness.
I’m so hungry and they don’t want me to take enough food to my fill.
They are here monitoring me as my dish out.
“C’mon guys why are you doing this to me? .. I’m so hungry” I stared at them looking so frustrated.
“That’s the thing Dad! You’re so hungry and we don’t want you to eat up everything.” Janietta replied.
“We need to save for tomorrow. And maybe next” she added.
“Janietta’s right. Good food are hard to come by. Especially in this house. That’s why we tryna preserve.” Noel spoke out and my mouth dropped in shock.
“But I could cook for you guys tomorrow.. I’ve been the one cooking”
I stared at the trio who stared Back at me with their arms akimbo.
“But your food isn’t as good as Rosiana’s own daddy” Kayla replied me as I felt like a clown.
“Kayla! Seriously?? Even you??” I gasped.
“That’s the truth. Rosiana is really a nice cook. She made enough food and it’s so so delicious and we don’t want you to eat as much……….. Or wait..????????”
Noel paused. Smiling at his sisters.
No! No! No!…
I know that devilish smile Noel…. An evil idea just struck him and I do not want any of it.
“Whatever you’re thinking Noel , you better not say it…”
I spoke out in a threatening tone.
But as you have it, My kids never listens to me????
