💚 {Next of KIN} 💚

Lisa’s pov cont

I rolled my eyes.

“You’re being silly Josh. I already told you my reasons for not giving in last night… ” I said

He scoffed and ignored me.

I went over to where he was and hugged him from behind.

“I should be the one mad but I’ve forgiven you.. So stop acting like I did something unforgivable “I said

He removed my hands and tickled Zac who just pushed his hands away.

“Feed Zac… Am gonna go wash my car “he said handing him over to me.

He left the house…

I know he’s just pretending to be mad. But why is he overreacting like he didn’t do it to me before.

I carried my baby to the kitchen… Thinking about all this makes me hungry.

I breast fed Zac till he was full, then I bath him.

I watched him till he fell asleep before leaving for my room to bath.

I took off my robe and went into the bathroom.

I went under the shower and as I tried to pull the switch… I felt Josh’s hands run round my bare back and stopped on my waist. He kissed my neck.

“Josh… What are you doing?! “I asked

He kissed my neck for a long time… He turned on the shower and he turned me to face him.

I stared into his eyes. He looked less angry but I felt he was still mad.

He took my lips into his and the kiss lasted for a while.

It was so intense… Making out under the running shower.

Josh cupped my face and held unto me tight.

Next, he carried me with my legs wrapped around his waist and dropped me on the sink desk, I was backing the huge mirror behind me.

He didn’t wait before diving into me. It was so sensational and I liked it.


I already had my clothes on before going downstairs to make lunch.

I smiled inwardly as I remembered the make out with Josh… i wonder where he is right now.

When I was done cooking, I went to the living room to meet Josh with a file jacket.

I sat beside him to see what he was doing.. I wasn’t really interested, just curious.

He brought out some papers from the file jacket and placed them on the table spacing them out.

“Josh, what are these? “I asked

He had his pen inbetween his lips so he removed it before replying.

“Papers from office, we gotta fill this for a business proposal… “He said

I nodded..

He flipped the first paper.

His hands went to the label boldly written on the paper:


My eyes glistened as I watched his hands move..

I bet am his next of kin… Am the wife for Christ sake.

He wrote something and his hands moved away from the dash 〰

He wrote…


Zac is his next of kin?? What about me

“Zac is your next of kin?! “I lashed out.

Josh raised his head at me.

“Its just a temporal list. Just to submit to the endorsers “he said

I scoffed

“To hell with that… Why can’t I be the one? I am your one and only, am the one that attend to your needs, are you saying Zac is more important to you than me?? ” I bombarded him with questions and reasons.

“Shh… You talk too much “he said with his finger across my lips.

I frowned.

“What I have is yours, and I can’t leave Zac behind. Am just moved to write his name here Lisa “he said.

“Yeah, yeah, I get it. “I said and rolled my eyes.

Josh began kissing me all over my face and I couldn’t help but giggle and laugh.

After a while, he kissed me fully on the lips and I became totally lost as we both explored into each others mouth.

But zac’s tiny voice cried from upstairs and we disengaged.

“We really need to get a nanny… “Josh said with a hoarse voice.

I agreed.

“Leave that to me. “I said then hurried upstairs to get Zac. He kept crying and I hugged him wiping off his tears.

I looked into his face blankly… “So, you’re the person who took my place in Josh’s heart? ” I asked.

He stopped crying and looked at me like he knew what I said. His tiny hand touched my cheek and he began speaking gibberish.


Days later, I alerted the search for nanny to some folks around the neighborhood. Many were puzzled that I already had a kid and they knew nothing about it.

The next day, I got a text from someone that She’ll be coming for an interview today.

I got ready for her and soon she came.

With zac in my arm, we both sat before the lady checking her out. She looked young but a bit more pretty. Her name was Nora. 😒

She said she just needed a simple work for just a month or two that she’ll soon be leaving the country.

I was just anxious if she won’t steal Josh from me or try anything funny.

I told her I’d call her if she got the job.

Nora’s pov

I laid on my bed looking at the picture in my hand…

It was a pic of Josh and I 3 yrs ago. Josh and I dated before but it didn’t last up to a month… Josh got fed up with the qualms and we broke up. I wanted him but he was too… ‘Perfect’ for me.

My current boyfriend dumped me last week and I had no job, I was going broke but like a miracle, I heard about the job opportunity but then I got more lucky when I found out it was Josh’s wife.

My own Josh.

With all the wealth… How can I get him back?
