( Too cold and possessive)
( Single Mum?)
By Simrah Saeed Hareerah
The smile on my face didn’t leave since I entered the Kingsley’s mansion.
After I left Adnan’s apartment, I came here direct not without spraying enough perfume.
I can’t risk being caught up in the act! I mean for anyone to notice I just left a man’s house when I am going to be engaged to someone else.
” Feel at home baby girl ” Mr Kingsley said and I bowed my head shyly.
Mrs Kingsley gave me a hearty smile as the maids serve me a drink.
” You see why I chose her Hanna, she’s very reserved ” Mr Kingsley said and that made me blush harder.
” I do agree with you, you are a beautiful lady Anika ” Jeffery’s Mum complimented.
” Thank you ma’am ” I replied putting on my best actress smile
” Oh please, call me Mum ” she said and I nodded.
” So how’s your father?” Mr Kingsley asked
” He’s fine si.. Dad, he sent his regards ” I replied taking a sip of the orange juice.
G0sh! I just wish I can see Jeffery already, I can’t wait to be all all over him .
I don’t mind giving him my body on our first meet if that will make him love me.
I am sure he will love me anyways, I have lots of guys asking me out.
I am beautiful, classy and Sexy! I know he will fall for me at first sight.
Even if he doesn’t, I will make him. Se.duction is what I knows best.
” You will have to stay with us for dinner before you leave ” Mrs Kingsley said.
Well! I don’t mind spending all my time in this mansion, my problem is that Jeffery doesn’t live here.
I bit my lip and nodded! And…. Edna, where’s she?
G0sh! I just wish she…
” Mum I….”
Oh talk of the dev!l! Here she comes!
She paused immediately her eyes landed on me.
We stared at ourselves for sometimes before I quickly smiled. Faked a smile!
If you must know, she’s been my rival since kindergarten!
We were once friends but one thing led to another and now, we are rivals!
That should be a story for another day.
I don’t want her parents suspecting there’s no good relationship between us.
” Edna!” I called beaming my face and equally standing up.
She faked a smile back opening her arms wide for me to hug her.
Very well! I gave her a hug! A hug that screams irritation!
” Don’t think you will last here Anika ” she whispered into my ear while the smile was still on her face.
I smiled back and patted her back, did she thinks she can take me out of this family?
I am already a part of this family since her parents chose me.
They love me and definitely going to treat me like a princess so who’s she?
” Chill Edna, you can’t stop me from marrying your brother right?” I asked
” Of course not, you will leave by yourself when the fire becomes much for you. This is my brother we are talking about, not my boyfriend you snatched ” she replied.
Huh? Fire? I chuckled softly.
Did she think she can scare me?
” Let’s see who laughs last baby girl ” I said disengaging from the hug.
My eyes met with Mr Kingsley and I could see a pleased expression on his face.
If only he knows everything is fake!
” You two know each other?” Mrs Kingsley asked.
” Yes Mum, Anika and I attended the same kindergarten remember? And equally the same highschool ” Edna beat me to the answer.
” Yes that’s true” I added.
” I have totally forgotten about that, anyways. You can show her around the mansion while the dinner is ready “
Mr Kingsley said and I could hear her groan!
G0sh! Stuck with her!
” But Dad, I was about going out ” she whined.
” It’s not a bad thing spending sometimes with your sister in-law and besides, wherever you want to go can wait “
Mr Kingsley said.
Edna scoffed rolling her eyes!
” Yeah right? Let’s go on a tour sister in-law ” she said in a mocking tone taking my hand in hers.
I checked the mail again and again blinking my eyes rapidly.
Eric sent it for me few hours ago, and I have been staring at it .
22 years old single mother of two.
has a best friend. Andrew!
The news of the person she gave birth for is blank! No one knows how come about her [email protected] but perhaps her best friend might know……
I closed my laptop taking in everything I just read!
She’s a single Mum? All this while, I thought that Andrew guy was her husband but I was proved wrong.
Who could have been responsible for her [email protected]?
Was it her boyfriend or was she [email protected]?
This little information I just got is getting me more curious!
I need to know more! More about her! This is not a detail!!
I brought out my phone and dialed Eric’s number and he picked in one ring!
📲 You’ve seen it? 📲
His voice came in.
📲 Yeah I have but, that’s not the details Eric, I need more information. Find out about the father of her kids 📲
📲 Well, I was on it though, that’s not all the information, I just sent this one to tell you she never deserved everything you did to her for your stupid reasons📲
He rasped and I sighed. Not that he knows her that well, why’s he backing her?
📲 You can blame me how ever you want but reserve it for later, you need to get me the informations about her immediately 📲
📲 I am not promising you bro but I will try to get that 📲
He hung up before I could speak again.
I dropped the phone trying to concentrate on my work but my mind kept drafting to her.
She’s a single Mum! How could I have been so stupid not to notice her struggles?
She’s been enduring everything because of her children?
She raised those two kids all by herself without a pillar called husband or father to to kids?
She must have gone through a lot and I added to eat!
Remembering how I insulted her this morning gave me a pang on my che$t!
I insulted her and her children, Including the husband that doesn’t exist!
For bringing up those two kids, I must admit she’s the strongest woman I have ever come across!
A lot of ladies will rather abort the pregnancy at early stage!
Goodness! I feel so ashamed of myself right now!
I don’t know why, I am happy that she’s not married knowing that it’s weird to have kids and no father.
I feel happy she’s still single!
What do I do? And now she left, I can’t deny that I miss her presence!
