MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE ⛄🎄🎁

★ PLAN FAILED★

<< JEROME’S RESIDENCE >>

“There’s no use calling her. She left with her parent, she’s gone from your life for good” granny Cathy said.

“That’s impossible. Pearl wouldn’t leave just like that” Jerome said as he ran past her, going to her room to see if her clothes were there and they were.

“Who exactly came to take her?” Jerome asked as soon as he got downstairs.

“Two men, I arrived when she got into the car with them” Granny Cathy replied.

“Are you sure she got into the car willingly?”

“Am not sure. All I know is that she got into the car with those men”

“Those bastards took her forcefully ” Jerome said kicking the wall in anger.

“So what if they took her, they are her parents and…”

“They are not her family. Pearl was adopted by them and ever since she’s been living with them, they’ve always treated her like an outcast, they made her go through hell. If they’ve taken her then she will be forced to go through the same hell again, Is that what you want!” He yelled at her and after taking his car key, he left the house ignoring his grandma call.

His journey to the James residence was a quick one and as soon as the maid open the door, he barged in calling Devon name.

“Jerome” Devon called, happy at seeing him again.

“Where’s she? Where the hell is my wife?” He said wanting to strangle the life out of her.

“What are you talking about? I don’t know where Pearl is” Devon replied, looking confuse.

“Don’t lie to me, I know you sent some thugs to take her!”

“Devon won’t be able to reply since she knows nothing about it” Grace said as she approach them.

“It was you, right?” Jerome glare down at her.

“It is me. Your grandmother told me to take my daughter and I did as she said” Grace reply.

“Where did you take Pearl to? Where is she?” He said wanting to grasp her neck but Devon got in the way.

“You really won’t hurt my mom for that bastard right?” Devon asked.

“Am willing to do anything just for her and so, tell me where Pearl is or I swear I will make you pay ” he swore grimly.

“I have no idea, I just payed those men to keep her somewhere” Grace reply looking a bit scared.

“This isn’t over” Jerome vowed and left the house.

“That man is crazy! He wanted to strangle me all because of Pearl” Grace said holding onto her neck.

“Then you should never have taken her in the first place” Devon yelled.

“B…but I did it for you, I wanted to help you get back at them”

“Who asked you to, huh? Instead of helping, you only made matter worse. Jerome now h@ťěs me more than ever and it’s all your fault!” Devon yelled and ran upstairs leaving her mom starring after her.

Jerome kept driving in speed as he dialled a certain number and after ringing twice, the reciever picked.

“What’s up Romie?”

“Larry, I need your help. I need you to help me use your skills in tracking down my wife” Jerome said.

“Tracking your what? Did you just say wife? When on earth did you get married?” Larry asked down the line.

“I can’t tell you about it now,help me track her location first” Jerome said ruffling his hair in agitation.

“Okay. Don’t hang up ” Larry said as he did his thing and some minutes later, he found her.

“Do you want me to call the police? ” Larry asked.

“No, I can handle it. Thanks Larry, I owe you one” Jerome said and end the call.

According to Larry, they are on the highway obviously on their way to the place where Pearl will be kept.

Larry had taken a screenshot of their car and had sent it to Jerome which he used in finding them since their car is an extraordinary one.

On spotting the car, he drove past it and stop right in front of it, disobeying the traffic rules.

The men had no choice but to pull a halt and a blindfolded Pearl who was at the back seat was knocked sideways.

She heard the men got out of the car and then she heard their groan like they were being beaten.

That made her more scared and when the door was open, she sat still hoping whoever it is will leave her alone but when he touched her, she tried to fight him off.

“Let go of me!” She yelled while trying her best to shake off his hand.

“It’s me, Pearl” Jerome said as he pulled off the blindfold.

On seeing him, her nerves calm only to be overwhelm with tears.

“I thought I was going to die” she said as the tears flowed freely and immediately, Jerome pulled her into a hug.

“Am here now, no one is going to hurt you” he said consoling her till her tears stop.

He untied the rope used to confine her hands and legs and gently pulled her out of the car.

When she saw the two men lying unconcious on the floor, she swayed which got Jerome holding onto her.

“Are you okay?”

“Are they dead?” She asked which got him shaking his head.

“A few beating won’t lead to death” he said and she let out a sigh of relief.

Suddenly, she felt herself being lifted off the floor.

“I can walk, Jerome” she said starring at him.

“I don’t mind. It’s a great pleasure holding you in my arms” he said smiling at her and she couldn’t help but to think about what he said.

<< JEROME’S RESIDENCE >>

Jerome stopped the car and stare at Pearl to see her sleeping soundly beside him.

Instead of waking her up, he moved closer starring at her face.

He still can’t believe that he’s fallen for this plain girl in front of him.

He had question himself about his feeling and he even tried to deny it but with this recent incident, no one had to tell him how he felt.

For the first time in his life, he has fallen in love…he thought and push back a strand of her hair which rouse her from her sleep.

“Are we home?” She asked and he nodded and got out of the car to open the door for her.

He was about carrying her when she refuse.

While he went to get her something to drink, she sat in the sitting room thinking about the earlier incident.

It still felt terrifying…she thought as she tightened her fist.

Just then she felt his hand on hers, he was seating beside her.

“It’s all in the past now, don’t be scared” he said.

“How can I not be scared? If my adopted mother is capable of hiring those men to kidnap me then she’s willing to go far. They might try to kill me next” she said only to be engulf in his embrace.

“I won’t let that happen. I will always stay by your side to protect you” he assured and she smiled.

“Tch! If someone heard you they will think you mean it” she pulled away to stare at him.

“But I do mean it, even if I have to give my life, I will protect you” he said, looking very serious.

The arrival of someone at the door ended their discussion.

“Who’s it?” Pearl asked.

“A friend” Jerome said already knowing who it is.

“Don’t I have to hide or something. Our marriage is unknown to your friends and my friends” Pearl reminded.

“You don’t have to. He knows about you already” Jerome said as he went to open the door for Larry.

“Now where is your wife? Am still in doubt about your marriage. You are trying to pull my legs right?” Larry said as he walk into the room to see Pearl sitted on the sofa.

“Is she the one?” Larry asked and Jerome gave a nod.

“Pretty right?” Jerome asked starring at Pearl.

“Definitely ” Larry agreed as he went to introduce himself which she did in return.

“It must have been hard trying to capture this devil’s heart but am glad you did. If you hadn’t, he would have kept on being a playboy , always messing around with models and actress and….”

“I think you’ve said enough Larry, let’s go talk in my study” Jerome said as he pulled his friend into the study while Pearl couldn’t hold back her laughter.

“Quit talking about my marriage and my wife and tell me when you will start working at King cosmetic” Jerome said as Larry fixed his glass properly.

“I already…”

“You’ve been refusing me for a long time ever since we left college but I need you. I need your expertise and I need a close friend, if you keep on rejecting me, I will be losing all of this” Jerome said.

“If you hadn’t stop me, you would have save yourself the long talk cause have reconsider your offer”

“Really? That’s great” Jerome enthuse happily.

“I can start by next week right?”

“Sure,Opal will be around to help you with wh@ťěver you need” Jerome said.

“I can’t believe you still keep that stone face around you. How do you even tolerate her coldness?” Larry asked referring to Opal.

“All I can say is that she’s good at what she does” Jerome said as they both left his study.

“See you on Monday then ” Larry said and left after saying goodbye to Pearl.

*****

“Are you sure this is the address?” Cassie asked as Charlie stopped the car outside Jerome’s apartment.

“It is. I saw her writing it down a few days ago ” Charlie replied and got out of the car.

“Can’t we just give her the document tomorrow” Cassie said looking a bit unsure.

“You said it yourself that it can’t wait. If she fails to sign it on time, it’s going to cause a huge problem for the company ” Charlie said.

“Tch! If someone heard that they might think you to be a good employee when all you are after is to poke nose” Cassie lament.

“Great, you know me so well dearest colleague ” Charlie said just as Larry walk out of the house.

While Charlie wondered who he was, Cassie couldn’t take her eyes off of him.

She could feel the slow beat of her heart and when he greeted them, her heart befan thumping fast.

“Who do you think he is?” Charlie asked.

“My future lover” Cassie replied dreamily only for Charlie to hit her lightly on the head.

“If he’s coming out of that house then he’s probably Pearl boyfriend, take your eyes off of him you slut” Charlie chided.

“How dare you call me a slut, you monkey!” Cassie said as she followed him.

They were about to take the stairs when they heard the sound of a car and they watch as a man alight the car, running towards the door to ring the bell.

“Do you think Larry will keep our marriage a secret?” Pearl asked Jerome.

“Larry isn’t a tattle tale, he knows how to keep a secret” Jerome answered just as they heard the door bell.

“I will get it” she said and went to open not bothering to confirm who it is.

” What are you doing here? ” Pearl asked starring at Max and instead of giving a reply, he shut the door behind him and envelope her in a hug.

“Are you okay? I heard about what happen” he said while she struggle to pull out of his arms.

“Don’t pretend that you know nothing about it, you must have joined hands with them to hurt me!” Pearl yelled at him.

“I would never do that, I care about you too much to…”

“If you value your life then it’s best you don’t finish that sentence” Jerome warn as he walk towards them, wrapping his arms around her waist, he pulled her towards him.

“I can’t believe you are living with him” Max said,a surprise to see Jerome.

“Why can’t she live with me?”

“Cause your marriage is a sham, she only married you out of spite. You guys aren’t real ” Max said glaring at Jerome.

“You are right,Pearl. I realised how important you are to me when I lost you. Have regret it and I want you back in my life, give me a chance, please” Max added as he took hold of her hand.

“Let go of her if you love your useless life” Jerome threatened holding onto her other hand.

Pearl stood in between starring at both men who were glaring daggers at each other….
