Wat did u meant by She Is The One!
She has changed in jxt a dayDecember 5, 2019 at 11:50 pm #1350752
i was so tire when i return to my hotel room, i my mind when back to what happened at th boutique, frowned my face the smile when the thought of Jerry came into my mind
i didn’t at feel anything for him, he was so calm and nice in her mother’s office but when he hugged me i felt butterflies in my Tommy, i didn’t want to let go but i was concious of my environment, his mother came and said what i regret hugging Jerry
“Mary what is wrong with you?” i asked myself aloud, it’s was obvious that i’m feeling something beyond crush, yeah i called crush, i decided to discuss it with Mike my ex now friend
Mum later came in the evening
Mom: my Princess how are you? How was your day!
Me: bad, i mean hectic and stressful
Mum smile and sat next to me putting my head on her laps while caressing my hair, i smiled when Jerry came into my mind
Mom: hey enough of day dreaming let’s go out and receive some fresh air
i rise an eye brow at my mum, she laughed heartedly
Mom: don’t worry you can tell mummy anything okay
She chuckled and i smiled, i wonder if she has magical powers to read my mind
Me: tell you what again?
i feign ignorant of what she was talking about but i wasn’t too sure of the feeling yet so i didn’t want to let my mum know yet
We left the hotel to a nice restaurant city mainland, we sat down and make our orders
Mum: care to tell me how was your first day as a cleaner?
i looked around for some seconds before i sigh escape my lips
Me: it’s wasn’t that bad although my senior boss is mean
She smiled as if she new that would happened, i careless because mum like smiling a lot even in situation worth frowning she’ll still be smiling
Me: you like smiling a lot mum, how do you manage to do that even in aweful situations?
Mum: that’s my secrete my Princess
The waitress arrived with our order half way to the meal, my eye traveled to a table at my far left, there was Jerry with a lady discussing and laughing, i looked closely to confirm that the lady is not Esther his sister
i felt pain inside but why did i feel pain we weren’t an item(dating),
Mum: Mary what is it? Do you know him? Who is he?
Me: mum please can we leave here now?
Mum stare at me for a while then beckon on the waitress to settle the bills, we drove out of the restaurant i thought mum is taking me to the hotel
She drove to a not so busy street with nice buildings, she park in front of a Green gate she ask me to follow her which i did, when we move inside the vicinity, mum walked to one of the door remove a key from her hand bag and unlock the door
The inside was nicely arrange with a nice painting, door&window blind and the cushion were already great i stare around for some minutes
Me: is this my new apartment?
Mum: exactly, now I’ll take you back to the hotel to get your things and return here
i smiled for the first time since we left the restaurant
Mum: from here to LadyMay Universal Boutique is 10minute drive
i chuckled at the way she said LayMay’s boutique, we drove back to the hotel pick my luggage and sign at the reception then leave to my new apartment
Mum was unbelievable i became angry with her, i left the house before she could return from her office
i book a room at a very unique Hotel, later in the day Treasure called me to hang out with me i hesitate for a while before i gave in
She picked me up at a street near the hotel i lodge, she drove to crunchies were we sat down
My eye saw a lady who look like Mary then i wave it off, i conclude that people look alike a lot and she was with a woman not just a woman but a wealthy woman at that, so i concentrate with Treasure who was talking and I didn’t hear her
Minutes later they left, i didn’t get to see her face clearly my mind was far away from where i was, i kept thinking about the hugged i share with Mary it was still feeling as if it just happened
It’s something that i didn’t feel before not even when i was dating Samantha, i wanted to asked Treasure how to know if one is in love but i decide against it, i didn’t want to draw any attention to my personal life yet
The hang out didn’t go well as she expected because i was so down not on Mary’s thought but why my kind hearted mother became mean to others
Treasure dropped me at our Gate and drove off, i took a taxi back to my hotel room, i saw 32 missed calls from My mother, sister, auntydora and Grandma, i didn’t remember to carry my phone, i sigh and drop the phone back on the bed, took my towel to go take a shower
A week later my empire gadgets and computers arrived from London along with engineers who will install everything and set everything in place that was when my mother saw me that Tuesday morning as she was in charge
Mum: Jerry what happened to you? Where have you been?
Me: nothing happened to me mum!
i replied with a straight face she came close to me
Mum: is it about that girl mary? Is she the one who changed you in a twinkle of an eye?
Me: mum leave her out of this please
i reply trying not to sound rude
Mum: can i explain this to you later?
i stared at her for a long time before I nod and we walk together to inspect how the installation is been done
MRS Johnson POV
Jerry left home because of my game just to see why a lady of such beauty and that status choose to apply as a cleaner in the boutique, she looked rich and no matter how she dress something told me that she may need help so i had to test her to confirm my suspicious, my children thought that i became something else unknown to them i was trying to help somebody but in the process i saw something in my son’s eye when he look at her eyes
i decide to add more tempo on the test section by embarrassing her, she didn’t make any attempt in talking back at me
She left the office i intentionally invite Jerry for lunch to see his reaction on the way i treat Mary, yeah he display the anger i expected, i didn’t know my own son can be upset to the extend of leaving house to where i didn’t know, when i tried calling him, is etheir he’ll busy or ignore the calls, Esther wouldn’t talk to me but that wasn’t my problem because she apologize when she realized that it was just a game plan, i felt bad and i made my mind to let him know my actions were all plans
When my contractor called me the following week monday evening to be precise informing me of my son Computer and Gadget arrival and engineers who will install the gadgets that was why i knew that my son was really mad at me
The next morning instead of going to my office at the boutique i drove to Jerry’s computer site, i saw him. Talking to one white man immediately he saw me he excuss himself and walk to Me
i ask him what happened to him, that wasn’t the best question cause i saw he was fine although he sounds rude when he replied me i didn’t bother i told him I’ll explain to him later he stared at me for a long time then nod, we walked together to see how the white men connect and install those gadgets
i was so angry with my mum for treating Mary that way, even how she spoke to her when my brother Jerry hugged her
Talk about that those two hugged more than the normal duration the hug Supposed to last, it was adorable watching them like that, and i conclude “Fit each other”
When my brother left the house that same day i tried calling him but he wasn’t picking up his calls, i became worried and angry
I slept late that night because I couldn’t reach him on phone, the next morning he called me around 7: 45AM, we talked about how mum changed and what could have made her change over night
Neither of us knows why she changed so we decide to let her be in her new found character, he (Jerry) ask me a question i expected
Jerry: how long have you known Mary?
Me: is it what I’m thinking?
He chuckle and the feign anger
Jerry: what ever you are thinking doesn’t concerned me, just answer my question little sister
Me: you call me little? Then forget i’m not telling you anything Big brother
He laughed and threatened to beat me if i don’t answer his question
Me: i met her last week at the boutique maybe that was when she came to apply
i heard him inhale then breath down
Jerry: do you know where she live?
Me: nopes but i’ll find out today
i smile inwardly that my brother is in love with the same girl i developed a liking for, he hang up the call
“Wow it gonna be sweet”
i yell on the bed standing up to go take a shower
i arrived mum’s boutique later in the afternoon, i walked into my mum’s office she was on phone call but she dropped it as soon as she saw me
She smiled widely but i kept a straight face
Mum: my only adorable daughter don’t be mad at mummy
Me: i didn’t come here tell you I’m at you, i came to ask you why you change overnight
Mum smiled which was making me run out of patients
Mum: i’m still your mother why will i change?
Me: you change from being that kind hearted, loving and caring to everyone but why do you hate Mary?
She laughed softly then pick a file and flipping through it, i gaze at her before she look up to meet My gaze
Mum: i don’t hate anyone Esther, can you excuse me i have somethings to do?
i stood up and walked out banging her door hard, i took the stairs to the kiddies section and found Mary cleaning up a passage
Me: hey mary!
Mary: good afternoon ma
i glance back to confirm i’m not the one she was referring to as ma
Mary: ma can i do anything for you?
She ask me again politely
Me: Mary stop all this act what’s your problem?
i finally yell at her she looked, i grab her hands and drag her to the elevator heading outside to parking lotDecember 5, 2019 at 11:53 pm #1350753
She still kept her face down till we were inside my car, i put the key in the ignition hole about to turn on she hold my hand
Mary: where are we going? i don’t want to lose my job please
i stare at her and saw a determination in her eye, determination that no matter what she’ll pass through she’ll still endure
Me: why do you choose to do this, are they not others place to work than to be humiliated here all in the name of keeping a stupid job?
Mary: I’ll be fine Esty
She smiled and i hugged her
Me: please see me as friend and not your boss, can we be friends?
Mary: yeah sure
Me: I’ll like to know where you live mary!
She pause for sometime then let go of the door handle and turn to me slowly
Mary: you can’t possibly come to my house because because because
Me: because what mary! Ok i get it i won’t come okay so forget
Mary: it’s not like that OK fine I’ll take you to my house this weekend
i smiled wildly then we alight the car and work back inside
A week and two days later, i was sitting outside under a flower tree chatting on my phone that evening, a car horn outside the gate, i thought is one of our cousins or aunties our Gate keeper rush and open the gate
BMW drove in and park next to my mum’s car then my brother alight, i rush on him and hugged him
Me: bro i missed you!
Jerry: i didn’t miss you o, infact i was free from your troubles
i laugh and med to hit but dodge running inside, i beckon on our Gate keeper to come check if there was any luggage inside the car boot, i joined him inside where my mum was sitting flipping through some fashion magazine
i decide to go back home after i met with mum at my computer firm but i didn’t return the same day i was still contemplating
i pack my belongings in my bag pack keep it on the drawer so the next day but something came up and i didn’t return in the morning as plan i had to go in the evening
i bought myself a car (BMW) the same day on my way going to the firm
i drove in Esther was busy with her phone immediately she saw the car isn’t familiar to she drop her phone staring intently at my car, everything got worse when i alight she nearly push me down
Esther: bro i missed you
Me: i didn’t miss you o, infact i was free from your troubles
She laughed and med to hit me but i dodge running inside, we met our mother with a fashion magazine
i greeted her politely and she smiled, i pinch Esther when she eyed her, she yell
Esther: that hurt bro
Me: Humm sorry kid sis
She smile and face mum
Esther: mummy please don’t chase my brother away again o
Me: you haven’t change a bit
Mum: don’t mind her, I’ll buy cane for you when i visit the market
Esther: haba mummy I’m a grown up girl na, very soon I’ll get married
Mum looked at her and hiss while smiling
Mum: sit down my dear don’t mind that big head
Esther touch her hair then we all laugh, i miss seeing my sister and mum laugh, i made up my mind to let mary go in order to keep my family intact
Mum: you’ll go upstairs take a shower then you come down for dinner
i nodd pick up my bagpack the gateman drop for me in the centre table, heading upstairs i heard my sister whisper to my mum and she chuckled, i shrugged and continue to my room
i finish taking my bath change into a simple wear going downstairs for dinner not that i was famished just want to eat home made food
Halfway to the dinner mum cleared her throat to gain our attention, we looked up to her waiting to hear what she has to say
Mum: my children you may think that I change
She started and i adjust on my seat, Esther drop her fork and spoon glance at my direction
Mum: why I’m being harsh on mary is because she looks like she’s from a rich home
She pause putting me in a confused state, when i glance at my sister she wore the same confused state on her facial expression
Mum: i wasn’t interested in employing another worker but when i go through her CV something compelled me to order for her employment
Esther: so mum you mean you are faking this hatred on Mary?
Mum nodded and start eating slowly on her plate, we waited for some minutes before she stop, she rose to her fit heading to the sitting room
i joined her immediately not wanting to leave any information behind
Me: mum tell me something please
Mum: i know you’re in love with her, so I’ll increase my fake hatred on her
Me: but why? She may quite the job
Mum: i don’t think so we have to device a plan to know who she is and why she choose to work as a cleaner in a boutique
Esther: what plan?
My sister ask immediately she stepped into the sitting room
Mum: asked her out then I’ll act like am against the relationship okay and I’ll use your cousin Treasure as the girl i want for u while mary will still remain her real friend
Me: sounds brilliant but why are you doing this?
She kept silent for some minutes before she smiled
Mum: this is modern days were parent don’t need to make a choice of spouse to their children but in this case i guess i need to choice because you seem afriad of something i know nothing about
My mum word remind me of Samantha who i fell for and she inturn was betrothed to some one who she didn’t know
Esther: please mum don’t let it go over board
i nearly laugh on the way she kept her face when she pass the warning to mum
Mum: se nnye mia fi ooo (see i’ll beat you ooo)
Esther: sorry mum but I’m not a kid ooo
We all laugh to her dry joke, we watch movie till it was bed time so we retire to our various rooms
The next day 12:30PM
The day was going on smoothly, the installation was still in progress i kept walking around the building till I was exhausted i thought of going for lunch.
i driving to chicken republic to have my lunch i put the car on halt turn to another lane heading to my mother’s boutique to pick Mary so we could have the lunch together
i got there in no time i met a lady on the same cleaners uniform i excuss her
Me: good afternoon
Lady: good afternoon sir, how may I help you sir
i smiled warmly at her she blush
Me: please is Mary the newly employed cleaner on duty?
She pause for awhile then she replied with a smile
Lady: yes sir she is at the kiddies section on the fourth floor
She explained as if i wasn’t aware i thank her and walked away to the elevator heading to the fourth floor
On opening the door i saw her(Mary) from a distance dusting the wrist watch showcase, i asked my self
“Is this plan not going to be too hard on this lady”
i shrugged and walked to where she was dusting and lean on the showcase she didn’t lift her head up because she had earphone on ear, when she saw my shadow she was startled
Me: sorry i didn’t mean to sneak on you
She stare at me like she lost her sense
Me: are you okay?
She nodded trying to move away from me i was bitter because it seems my presence was useless to her
Me: Mary are you avoiding me? Look i’m sorry on the way mum is treating you okay
Mary: sir seriously i’m not upset with you or your mother if i am i wouldn’t be here still working is just thst i’m on duty i need to finish up in time
i stared at her for sometime then walk away in rejection i lost apitite instantly, i walk into my mum’s office with a sad expressionDecember 5, 2019 at 11:55 pm #1350754
