I quickly jumped down the window with the help of the rope.
“I really need to get out of this house as soon as possible” I muttered tiptoeing to the giant gate.
Luckily for me, the security guard was not there.
I quietly bolted the door open and rushed out of the house.
Oh gosh! I feel like a free bird!
I kept running and running…
There’s no way am going back to that freaking house.
Everywhere look really strange.
It was already dark but I managed to walk through.
I looked around in excitement.
I was about to cross the road when a car hit me and I collapsed.
Alas! My car hit someone and I quickly got down from the car.
“Oh my gosh! She’s bleeding profusely” I said as I carried her into the car.
I drove straight to the hospital.
“Tell me doctor! What’s wrong with her?” I asked impatiently.
“Well Mr Severino…. Her bones were fractured and for the meantime she will walk with crutches” The doctor said
“Holly Molly! I can’t believe this… Did you just say crutches?” I yelled in annoyance as I hit my hand on the doctor’s table.
“Calm down Mr Severino… By the way how are you related to the patient? Is she your girlfriend?” the doctor asked as I arched my eyebrows.
“Girlfriend? What makes the doctor think that way?” I thought
“Did you hear me Mr Severino?” The doctor asked smacking me back to consciousness.
“Well… No I mean… Yes” I said in confusion.
“Oh whatever!” the doctor snorted.
“This family doctor of ours is so pesky and a nosy Parker” I rolled my eyes.
“Can I go see her?” I asked
“Yes” the doctor replied as I left the office.
“I just hope dad doesn’t hear about this! That big mouth of a doctor… And she has to walk with crutches” I sighed.
Am sorry I haven’t properly introduced myself.
Am Alex Severino… The only son of a wealthy business man Mr Severino.
Least I forget dad and I are like apples and oranges…
We don’t get along… He just expects me to be the perfect son.
But I have no choice…
He wants me to get married….
He wants me to go into the family business….
He wants me to do this…
He wants me to do that…
He doesn’t even want to know what I want….
Annoying and depressing!
One more thing… Women are not my kind of thing!
Am 27, handsome and wealthy yet I have no girlfriend.
Though girls really flock around me to get my attention.
I don’t care…. 🙄
I threw the ward’s door open and walked in.
She was lying unconsciously.
“Miss unknown just wake up already!” I said
Suddenly her fingers started moving.
She slowly opened her eyes.
“Nanny Keisha!” She said as she looked around.
“Hey! What’s your name?” I asked
“Who are you?” She asked
“How silly! She’s answering me with a question” I rolled my eyes.
“Well am Alex and you got hit by my car… Now what’s your name?” I asked
“My name is Janella” she said simply as she tried to move her legs but couldn’t.
“What’s wrong with me? Why are my legs heavy?” She asked in tears.
“They are fractured and the doctor said you will be using crutches for the meantime” I said
“Crutches? What’s that?” She asked as I scoffed.
“Really? You don’t know what’s a crutches? Who in this century doesn’t know what a crutches is!” I said amazed.
“But I don’t know what it is” she bowed her head.
“That’s OK! Tel me where do you live? What are your parent’s name? Their phone numbers?” I asked
“I DON’T KNOW” She said as my eyes widened in shock.
“WHAT?” I yelled….
