” What the hell are you saying?”
” You heard me Gray, he wants you to marry his daughter.”
“He must be a joker.”
” This was not part of the deal, why does he suddenly want me to marry his daughter?”
” Gray things are getting out of hand, l don’t know why he wants you to marry his daughter but am afraid without this contract our company will be in joepardy.”
” To hell with the contract.”
” Don’t mention my name.”
” Now you are mad at me, why not go to Mr Li and pour out your anger on him.”
” You are making this difficult, you can just marry her and get a divorce after few months.”
” Is that all you v’e got to say in this situation?”
” Am sorry Gray but this contract is too important, we can’t lose it.”
” You always talk about the contract, what about me? I can’t just marry anyone and later get a divorce, it will create a huge scandal, you know l hate it.
And moreover l don’t even know this woman, the daughter he is talking about.
Mr Li is insulting me am bigger than this, he can’t force me to marry is daughter because of a contract, that’s uncalled for.”
” I tried to talk him out of it, but he wouldn’t listen, l think you should go see him yourself.”
“Yes l will go see him, he should stop this madness.”
” Please don’t be rude to him, be polite for once in your life, talk to him calmly and let him see reasons why you can’t meet his demand.”
“I really need to talk some sense into that douchebag.”
“Gray let this attitude end here, just be polite okay!
” See you later Robin.”
( Next day)
My eyes fluttered open.
I can’t believe I slept this long, its 10am already.
I stretch my body and got out of bed.
” Lover girl” l hear a familiar voice.
“Daisy, l thought you left?”
” Good morning, aren’t you happy to see me, huh?
” Good morning, l thought you left for work.”
” I haven’t gotten the full gist on why my best friend wounded her shoulder.”
“Daisy, you are so unbelievable, well l also want to know why you came home late last night.”
” Fine! You go first.”
” Nothing much, it was an accident, the bricks were supposed to fall on Mr Gray but l pushed him off, it hits me instead.”
” I thought you hate him bestie, we v’e always prayed for our enemies to die, you should have allowed the bricks hit him hard.”
” What are you saying?”
” Who saves the person they hate,l thought you hate him, stop lying to yourself Phoebe, you like him.”
” I don’t.”
” You do, l know you do, stop decieving yourself.”
” Yeah yeah whatever.”
” Your turn, who were you with last night?”
” Wait, you have not given me the full details, you spent a night with Mr Gray, something definitely happened.”
” Daisy, you are crazy.”
” I know l am so tell me.”
” Don’t forget am pregnant, we didn’t do anything, we just kissed, that’s all okay.”
” What about the dresses and the undies they are too expensive, l know he bought them.”
” Yes he did.”
” Okay, my turn.
yesterday l was lonely, since you weren’t at home l decided to go have some fun and l met this handsome dude, he was so cute and charming, to cut the long story short, he asked me out for a date and l agreed.”
“Is that all?”l asked.
” What’s huh, l want to know the full details, why did you cut the long story short?”
” That’s the full details, it’s not a long story.”
“You said it’s a long story.”
“No, it’s a short story.”
” So about you and Mr Gray.”
“What about us?
“Why don’t you consider him?”
“Why should l? He didn’t ask me out niether has he ever said he liked me, there is nothing to consider.”
” But he bought you undies.”
” That’s because he is a pervert, he said he bought me undies like it’s no big deal.”
” Alright, but you have to be careful.This is the second time you v’e been to the hospital, there should be no third time you are pregnant please take good care of yourself.”
” I will and there will be no third time.”
” Sometimes, l just wonder what answer l will give my child when he grows up and ask about the father, what will my child think of me?”
” Phoebe stop worrying, when the time comes you will sail through.”
” I hope so.”
” Good, go take your bath, l prepared breakfast, when you are coming take your medicines with you.”
” Yes mom.”
” I will be waiting my daughter.”
” You are a fish brain”.
” And you are an a—–e.”
Gray was sitting in his swivel chair, he is in deep thought.
What happened in his penthouse, last night when he kissed her, the time he helped her changed her clothes, he unconsciously smiled as he rubbed his chin.
He was busy reminiscing those memories that he wasn’t aware someone was watching him.
” Gray you spaced out, what were you thinking, smiling alone like a fool.”
” What are you doing here?”
” Can’t you knock?”
” Offcourse l knocked but you were so engrossed in your day dreaming.”
” What do you want?”
” Here are some business proposals that needs your approval.”
” Just leave it there l have to review it before signing.”
“Alright was up with you?”
” Robin you are my best friend.”
“Best friend forever.”
“Just shut up and listen.”
“I think l have to admit it now.”
” I love her.”
” The secretary.”
“Woooow! I said it this comes for a celebration.”
” Why are you being dramatic, what’s there to celebrate?”
” You just said you love a woman.”
” I don’t know if she feels the same, remember she is a hooker, she probably sees me as one of her former client.”
” Why do l have to fall in love with that kind of woman?”
“You love her that’s what matters, if she feels the same, she will definitely stop it for your sake and you mold her to be a better woman.”
“She has a well paying job why does she have to use her body? and she is very good at pretending, l mean all this while she still pretends not to know me.”
“I don’t think she is pretending.”
” Why not confront her and see what she has to say.”
“That’s a good idea, thanks man.”
“This is the best thing you have said all through the year.”
“What? the year is yet to end.”
“So what did Mr Li say?
” He insisted l must marry his daughter and l told him to go to hell with the contract.”
So finally Gray admitted his feelings am proud of him.
