🌺 Charlotte 🌺
I hived a sigh of relief heading back to where he was standing! G0sh! He scared the crap outta me!
You wouldn’t blame me, I ought to be scared!
When I got nearer, I saw he was laughing ridiculously at me!
Seriously! It’s not funny! I had to run fir my life! I haven’t done anything reasonable for myself in life so I don’t wanna die or get kidnapped again!
The first experience wasn’t all good;
” Wait! Where were you even running to?” He asked amidst laughter while I rolled my eyes!
” You can be this scared Charlotte ” he was still laughing
” It isn’t funny seriously, I had to run for my life ” I said walking back to my condemned car!
” Well I understand but what are you doing on the street by this time?” He asked
” I..it’s my car, it got knocked down . It just wouldn’t start ” I replied blatantly
” Okay, I can give you a ride home then you can fix your car by tomorrow ”
Huh? A ride home? With Jace? My boss?
It will be very awkward and I will feel really uncomfortable!
” Uhhm, you don’t have to worry! I..I will just call my brother to come pick me ” I said!
If I have thought of that, I wouldn’t be on the road by this time!
” C’mon Charlotte, it’s dangerous here. Before your brother comes who knows anything might happen ”
” Just let me take you home please, this once ” he pleaded.
This is actually the first time he’s pleading for something! He pleaded with me for the very first time so do I have any option?
What he said is true, street boys are psychos .
They might Rob me and decide to do otherwise!
” Char please ”
I sighed raising my hands up in surrender!
Not that I have any choice!
” O..okay ”
He gladly opened the passenger side for me like a gentleman and I sat down!
I can’t believe it, Jace has really changed a lot!
I never thoughthought he can be this gentle!
He ignited the engine and we drove away in an uncomfortable silent! I was tensed up !
The conditioner was switched on but I was feeling the inner heat! I can’t wait to alight from the car !
” So? How are you doing?” He broke the silent and I almost chuckled!
Is that a question? He can see I am fine or did he just want to start up a conversation?
I am not actually ready to stammer please!
” I.. I am fine of course ”
” You are beautiful you know ”
I choked on my spit as I heard that! Really?
My face turned crimson and I looked through the window stylishly throwing my face away!
” T..thank you ” I stuttered trailing off! It’s getting more heat up
” You are welcome, you know I have always admired you Charlotte. Forget you left, the feeling is still there I can’t forget you Charlotte, when you are deeply in love, it’s hard to let go ”
” I have tried but I can’t, I just can’t stop loving you with you being far away or near”
” I am [email protected] in love with you, nothing can change that ”
My eyes met with his and I quickly looked down!
I don’t know how I feel about this whole thing.
I..I thought he’s gotten over that! He was really serious about loving me?
W..what do I say to him because right now, it seems I lost my tongue!
This is worst than I thought!
” You don’t have to say anything Charlotte, if it’s time you need, I will give you enough time to think about it but know that I have changed and become the man you’ve always wanted ”
When he finished his speech, we were already in front of the house!
Oh well! My Dad is popular remember? So anyone can easily know his house!
” Here we are ” he said coming to a halt!
I hopped out of the car and so did he! Wait! Okay!
” T..thank you J.. Jace ”
” It’s fine, looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at the office. Do not come late, I hate tardiness ”
Yeah right! I know that already! Say something new !
He pecked my cheeks, smiled at me, entered into his car and drove off leaving me stunned!
What the h.ell?.
🏵️ Chelsea 🏵️
Can he stop calling please? I switched off my phone giving myself a peace of mind!
I know I shouldn’t ignore Noah’s calls but I can’t help it!
I won’t be able to say a word when I am in tears!
I am not mad at him for what happened earlier! If he had known how much it will hurt me remembering my past, he wouldn’t have brought it up!
That moment, I just couldn’t think straight! I am wrong for leaving him , I just wanted to cry my eyes out!
I wanted to tell him about me but I couldn’t!
I don’t know how to start such conversation!
I grew up with no one to talk to, no one to advice me and no one to confide in .
I just don’t know how to share my problems with others!
Then , it happened! I keep it within me ! Who do I tell when I had no one? I guess that’s what’s affecting me till now!
The door opened revealing my other half, I quickly wiped the tears in my eyes faking a smile!
I don’t want her to get worked up over me! I hate being a liability to people!
” Hey sis ” she said throwing her bag at me! G0sh this girl!
She looks somewhat happy and I could tell she’s blushing over what God knows!
” Welcome ” I managed to say!
I wonder what kept her at the office since!
” Yeah thank you, how was your first day at work? Tell me , any gist? There’s this handsome guy Neo told me he employed, I know you will be eyeing him by now ” she blurted and I chuckled!
Seriously? I don’t even know anyone except Neo and Martha! That’s his secretary!
” I ought to be asking you that Char, why are you blushing? Did anything happen at my back?” I asked!
Her eyes widened and her cheeks reddened
” Is it that obvious?” She asked and I couldn’t hold my laughter anymore!
” Of course it’s very obvious that you are blushing so tell me , what’s behind it ?”
She removed her shoes, earrings and necklace before settling down with me on the bed!
” It’s Jace ” she whispered!
Jace? Who’s Jace? Probably her boyfriend!
” Your boyfriend?” I asked and she shook her head! Then who?
” Uhhm, Ice pick ”
My heart skipped in fright as I heard his name! W…what? He’s Jace?
” I..ice pick?” I quivered gripping my pillow!
” Oh Chelsea, he’s not going to hurt you again. He’s a changed man now and besides, he said he’s forgiven you ” she said!
She can’t know Ice pick more than I do can she?
” Y..you saw him?”
” Yes, he happened to be my new boss Chels and my car got knocked down on the way so he brought me home ”
Really? Her new boss? Oh my! Ice pick is now a boss in a company?
That shows he’s really changed person
” So? ” I asked
” So?” She replied
” What’s your relationship with him? Why will he make you blush?”
She fidget with her fingers before replying me while I stared curiously at her!
” Well! He said he love me Chels and I believe him b.. but I don’t know how I feel about him ”
Wow! New discovery! If he’s really good then I can’t stop her from being with him!
If I can change, anyone else can!
” You don’t love him?” I asked
” I don’t know Chelsea, I don’t ” she replied worriedly!
I thought for a while and came up with an idea! Okay! It’s gonna work perfectly!
I am Chelsea remember?
I picked up my phone and switched it on, that sound it makes while starting happens to be my ringing tone .
” Wait a sec ” I told her and she nodded while I did like I was receiving a call!
” Hello, good evening ” I said to no one while she watched keenly
” Yes one of Mr Gabriel’s twins ”
” Oh! Maybe you mixed my number with hers, this is Chelsea speaking not Charlotte ”
” W …. what?”
” Oh my goodness! Jace? H..how? What happened? ”
I said dramatically and I saw Charlotte tensed! Yeah! That’s what I want
” O.. okay, I will inform Charlotte immediately and she will be there ”
I hung up feigning sad!
” What happened Chelsea? What happened to Jace? Is he fine?” She asked hitting me slightly
” I..I am sorry Charlotte, he got into an accident on his way and…it’s really bad , I don’t know how they got my number b.but he was rushed to the nearest hospital, JK”
Before I could say another word, she was already at the door!
She wasn’t even with a single shirt but [email protected]!
I tried hard to hold my laughter and called after her!
” Wait up Charlotte ” I called
she stopped breathing heavily
” What’s it? I need to see him now , I.. need to ” she said choking on her tears .
I couldn’t hold it anymore! Okay! I burst out laughing!
” You love him Charlotte, admit it ”
