(Too cold and possessive)
( don’t you think )
By Simrah Saeed Hareerah
” What are you saying Eric? I was thinking you will help me get her back to the company but I see it’s reverse ”
I said angrily to my best friend who just sat watching me like a movie.
I know I have messed up but, I can’t deny the fact that I miss her and I think I should admit to the fact that I am attracted to her at least.
I don’t care if she have kids, if the father doesn’t show up. I will take responsibility!
I am ready to do anything to get her back but, I am equally scared of facing her.
” You told me she quitted right? but you never told me you poured a hot water on her, how could you have done that Jeff? That’s so callus ”
I bowed my head in guilt! I know right? I have done terrible things to her and I know she won’t forgive me that easily.
That’s why I want her at my sister’s birthday party, I could use that opportunity to set things right with her.
” I know I did that but believe me, I regret it ” the said sincerely.
” I am glad you finally met someone that will bring you back to your normal self Jeff , just look at how you look like a lovestruck idiot ”
He said laughing and he glared at him!
Nothing’s funny here please!
” I can’t believe you actually regretted your actions for the very first time dude , you see Alexa? She deserves some accolades , the very best ”
He said and I nodded, she deserves some accolades!
” What do I do Eric, I am so confused. I want her back like I said be…”
” Think of something else,. she’s not coming back to work for you. Even if she agrees, my brother will never agree to that, he will use that opportunity to kick your ass like he’s boiling to do ”
Huh? His brother?
” Your brother?”
” Yes dummy, my brother. Andrew is my younger brother and up till now, he’s very mad at you for what you did to his best friend. Just don’t let him see you else, he will devour you ”
Seriously? I can’t believe this!
” Devour me? He can’t do that you know ” I said proudly and he chuckled.
” Admit I can beat you Jeffery ” he said and I rolled my eyes.
” You can’t ” I replied blatantly
” Well, either you accept it or not, my brother Andrew might be younger than us but he’s got the power of a lion. Do not come close to him , I am giving you a friendly advice ”
Seriously, what he says made me a little scared.
That very Andrew I saw that day? He wants to beat me up? Forgetting my status? We
This is serious!
” There’s this interesting thing she told me about her yesterday and it’s related to her kids ”
As much as I felt a pang of jealousy in my heart, I am so interested in hearing this.
She was with me for almost a month and we never got along but just a day she spent with him.
She’d trust him enough to tell him about her!
I am hurt! Will she ever trust me like that?
How can she when I have that intimidating aura around me all the times?
” What?” I asked curiously.
” As we were having lunch, I asked her about the father of her kids. She was reluctant to tell me at first but she did anyways, she trust my brother so she should trust me too ”
” She said what I am still finding hard to believe ” he said staring at me.
” Say it already Eric ” I urged.
” She doesn’t know the father of her kids”
What? How’s that possible?
” I don’t get it, that’s not possible right? How can she say she doesn’t know the father of her kids? Was she raped? ”
” No, according to her, she had a night with a stranger and boom! It resulted in a pregnancy four years ago ”
Wait! A stranger? How? Where? Why?
” Jeff, does this thing make any sense to you? Cause it does to me”
” I am so confused Eric, I don’t understand it. How can she give her body to some random guy? ”
I asked .
” Well, according to her. She was under the influence of alcohol at the party. Jeff, about the lady you had an encounter with four years back , you were drunk but it was a night stand too, don’t you think she’s…”
No! She can’t be the one can she?
” Don’t think about that Eric, she’s not the one! Definitely not! ”
I said shaking my head.
” I have a plan and Andrew have to be involved before it can be carried out, so I guess you should sort out your mess with him ”
???? Hello Alexa ????
I paused playing with Emma’s hair as I heard the caller mention my name.
???? Good evening ????
I greeted politely.
???? Yeah evening, this is Edna. The lady you met yesterday ????
???? I am sorry I didn’t recognize your voice ????
???? It’s nothing, so how are you????
???? I am fine and you? ????
???? Fine too, I want to officially invite my new friend to my birthday party tomorrow evening please don’t say no, please…pretty ????
She whined and I giggled!
???? Happy birthday in advance Edna ????
???? Thank you but I still want you to attend the party to honour our new friendship ????
She said .
I glanced at Evan and Emma and sighed! Will Andrew be at home tomorrow?.
I can’t leave them all by themselves, I can’t at all!
???? Are you there Alexa? ????
Her voice came in again. I can’t remember the last time I went!
Or perhaps! The last time was the day Jason cheated on me.
The day that brought about Emma and Evan. Can I ever forget that?
???? Uhmm yeah , I will attend to your party ????
???? Yaaayy! Thank you so much Alexa, I will text you the address right away and I love you ????
She yelled excitedly and hung up.
I will just have to plead with Andrew to look after them for me.
Maybe tomorrow’s party might create a difference.
A different from what happened four years ago.
