“I love you…. I love you Vanessa” Nessa’s ear rang a bell when she heard his words.
Her eyes opened widely in total shock as the tray of food escaped her hand subconsciously.
She was dumfounded.
What did he just say???
He loves her.
“I love you messy…” Bryan whispered again.
“No you don’t.” Nessa chipped in, still in shock.
“Please just stop all these if it’s another game of yours….. My heart is tired of going through another pain after what it encountered last night…. Please leave me alone” she added in a broken tone.
“Is my love now a game to you now. Why’ll I fake it to you?” Bryan deeply asked.
“Because there’s nothing you ain’t capable of doing. All of a sudden after be caught with a lady, you love me. Please stop the pretense” Nessa chipped.
Bryan heaved a sigh.
“Yeah you’re right. What happened yesterday made me realized I’ve always loved you.
“It took me the hardest way to realize it when I felt something I haven’t felt in my whole life before ‘heartbreak’.
“I think back to what someone once said ;If you don’t love a person, they can’t break your heart….. Seeing you with another man broke the remaining part of my heart into millions of pieces that I don’t even know, if there’s any left anymore” he muttered and one doesn’t need to tell Nessa, the other part was broken by Ariel’s departure.
“I love you messy, and I know you feel the same towards me…” He added but this time, he turned her around, to face him.
In that way, he could look closely into the depth of her eyes.
Nessa stood still, unable to utter a word as she glanced at him.
“Messy do you love me?” He asked in a whisper.
“No” Nessa muttered immediately.
“No i don’t love you….. Infact I can never love a cheater like you” she said loudly enough for him to hear.
Bryan’s eyes flickered in shock… He was stunned.
Nessa’s eyes never left him….She doesn’t need anyone to tell her she just lied.
She just can’t bring herself so low to the point of telling him she had always loved him from the start…..
Truth was, she felt like hugging him and telling him how much she had always loved him, but no. She must make him suffer for hurting her.
“You’re lying Nessa” Bryan’s voice broke her off her thoughts..
“I know deep down you love me…. And I’ll make sure you confess it to me” he said with a smirk….
“What’s wrong with this guy self” Nessa grumbled inwardly.
“Okay, do as you pleass. But sorry in advance for bursting your bubbles already” Nessa smirked back at him before dashing out of the kitchen.
She just can’t believe the old man made her spill her food.
d@mn it! She was so hungry.
She rubbed her tummy while climbing the stairs.
“Am so hungry….
Immediately nessa left, Bryan took a sigh of relief, rubbing his palm on his face.
He was so surprised..
How on Earth did that little child made him confessed his feelings.
How did she do it??
What pains him most was the fact she lied about not having feelings for him…..
“Really” he smirked.
He knows she does, but pretending……
He smirked again
“Messy I will make sure you confess your feelings.” he muttered to himself and made to walk away when he stepped on the spilled food on the floor.
What the heck?? She didn’t even clean up her mess..
He picked up a bin, mop and a broom as he tidied the kitchen by himself…
Nessa woke up by a familiar sound coming from her tummy.
Gosh, she was so hungry.
She held her tummy and left the bed…….
She couldn’t have enough sleep the whole night. Not because of Bryan but, the fact was ;She was scared…….
She’s not use to the fact of sleeping in a big room with no one living next door with her….
Mrs Matilda and Gina wasn’t around. The fact she was all alone in this side of the passage scared the living day life out of her..
d@mn, she was as well hungry throughout the night…….
She couldn’t go back to the kitchen last night…. What if she sees something that scares her?
And the fact she doesn’t know if Bryan slept home got her more scared…… What if she was all alone in this big mansion.
Oh poor Nessa!
Come to think of it, Bryan said he love her. He confessed it to her last night.
She blushed, hiding her face….
How’s she gonna face him now.
Oh Goodness, He shouldn’t have confess his feelings to me.
She went to the bathroom to brush her teeth and took her bath before wearing a short and a top.
“What am I gonna eat?” She frowned, climbing down the stairs.
If she had knew, she would’ve listened to her mom and Valerie when they were forcing her to learn how to cook.
She snapped her tongue and walked past the dinning, heading towards the kitchen.
Suddenly, a laughter from a male and a female emerged from the kitchen.
Who could be there.
Nessa knitted her brows and increased her pace.
She got into the kitchen and behold, what her eyes saw, her lips couldn’t utter it.
Bryan was seated on the kitchen counter with a beautiful, tall, sěxy lady, cooking in front of him as they both laughed to each other’s jokes simultaneously.
“What’s going on here?” Nessa asked curiously, approaching then.
Bryan turned, so as the lady
“You’re up?” Bryan asked, still glancing at her.
“No am not. It’s my spirit you’re seeing” Nessa spouted, making a smile crept to Bryan’s lips as he looked away.
“This child is so funny” the beautiful lady said, laughing beautifully and Bryan still had a smirk on.
“Wait… Who is she calling a child?….. And as for Bryan this old man, he just sit there and watch another lady called his wife a child..” Nessa boiled.
“Who’s she?” Nessa glanced at Bryan…
“She’s a darling friend of mine….”Bryan replied immediately, operating on his phone.
This guy must be kidding??
“Bryan why don’t you introduce her to me” Nessa rushed her words, glancing at the damsel of a lady who was bringing out the already fried plantain from the pan.
“Okay..” Bryan sighed.
“Vanessa meet Annabel my darling friend and Annabel, meet Vanessa” he introduced, jumping down from the counter and approached Annabel.
“Is this old man for real? He didn’t even mention who I was to him” Nessa pouted.
“Can I have a taste of this your delicious plantain?” Bryan said seductively to the lady, holding a fork in his hand.
Annabel of a lady stopped him, arranging his hair with a blush on.
Nessa felt jealous… Is Bryan doing this on purpose to get her jealous?
She stood there and watched them…
Next she saw was Annabel snatching the fork seductively from him. She dipped it into the plantain on a plate and brought it towards Bryan’s lips.
She won’t dare…
Nessa rushed towards them and stopped her. She have had enough. She has indeed had enough.
She stood in-between them, glaring at Annabel with Bryan behind her.
“Annabel or wh@ťěver you’re called.. Have you forgotten he’s a married man and his wife is the one standing right in front of you?” Nessa snapped and could hear a smirk from behind. Of course Bryan did that.
“Chill girl, chill… He’s for everyone not yours only ” Annabel retorted with a cynical smile… Her smile annoys Nessa even more..
“Sorry because it sees like you’re, mistaking… Bryan is mine alone and I am the only one allowed to be his wife. He loves me wholeheartedly.” Nessa snarled with tears, glistering in her eyes.
She turned to Bryan who wasn’t having fun with everything anymore. He was d@mn serious now, looking keenly at Nessa in stun….
“Why was she crying?”
“Bryan tell her.. Don’t you love me?.. Tell her you are not for everyone but mine only” Nessa held his hand and sobbed.
He was stupefied.
“Why are you crying?” He asked, wiping off her tears.
“You don’t have to prove anything to anyone If you really you know the place you own in my life” he added and Nessa hugged him tearfully.
It shattered her to see him being with another lady again.
She pulled from the hug after a while and turned to Annabel.
“You see Annabel, Bryan belongs to me only…… You’re just wasting your time..” she said, picking up the plate of food Annabel dished out.
“I want to have this. Am so hungry” Nessa pouted to her and Annabel nodded with a genuine smile.
Nessa grinned and left the kitchen immediately, eating from the plantain and sauce as she climbed the stairs.
Annabel chuckled hysterically in the kitchen.
“What a naive girl” she laughed out.
Bryan scoffed and shook his head.
Indeed, Messy is a drama queen. This her behavior is part of the reasons he fell for her. what a child she was.
Well, Annabel is one of his men….. He had to call her over to help him make Nessa jealous.
She was a woman and knows what to do.
But what Bryan never expected was the drama Nessa displayed. He never had expected her to fall easily into his tricks.
Gosh, She’s really a child.
He smiled to himself as he recalls what happened earlier.
“Should I set the table, boss?” Annabel asked respectfully.
“Yes” Bryan muttered, looking else where.
“You can leave after that” he added, walking out of the kitchen.
Nessa laid on her bed, watching some marriage programs online after that, she switched to watching how food are being made.
Well, she has decided to become a lovely and darling wife towards Bryan so her gender wouldn’t take him away from her.
Getting tired of watching, she turned her phone off and dropped it on the bed.
Marriage isn’t for everyone. At least, not for someone like her.
This $h|t is so tiring!
Suddenly, she began blushing, recalling Bryan’s words at the kitchen and how he hugged her in front of Annabel.
She stood up from the bed and checked the time, and it was 4pm already.
Mrs Matilda hasn’t come home till now, Guess she won’t be coming today.
“Am so hungry. What am I gonna eat?….Hope Bryan won’t ask me to prepare dinner.” Nessa bit on her lip.
She felt anxious while climbing down the stairs.
Hope sěxy or Annabel of a girl isn’t around.
She went to the kitchen and checked the fridge but behold, everything was empty.
“What am I gonna eat? I can’t even prepare noodles” Nessa cursed, rubbing her tummy and went to sit on the dinning.
She takes back on her words. Annabel should have stayed back so she could fix her a meal.
After sometime, not less than twenty minute, Bryan came in from outside.
d@mn, she had thought he was home.
He looked at her and made to climb the stairs but…..
“Bryan” Nessa called and he stopped to look at her.
“Are you going out again?” She stuttered and he rolled his eyes.
“Why are you asking?”
Nessa scratched the back of her neck nervously.
“Am hungry.” She pouted.
He stared at her and didn’t utter a word for sometime.
“Am going for a friend’s concert, and won’t be back until midnight” he said, gazing at her.
“So you’re gonna watch me starve to death?…. And here I was, thinking you love me” she pouted and he chuckled, raising a brow.
He approached her and pulled her cheek.
“Who told you am gonna let you starve to death?” he winked at her and Nessa looked confusedly at him.
“What’s this one talking about??
“You’re going with me” he sneered.
