“You’re going with me” Bryan sneered
“We’ll stop by at a restaurant to eat something before going for the concert” he added and Nessa smiled.
“Really Bryan?” She grinned, looking so excited.
“Of course….. Go get dress and do that fast” he said and head to his room.
Bryan is becoming romantic.
Who would have thought he was this fun to be with….
Nessa chuckled ecstatically and head towards her room.
An hour time, Bryan and Nessa were seated at a beautiful and classic restaurant.
“Wow this is beautiful” Nessa exclaimed, twirling her head around…….
They where at the VIP’s spot with Bryan, getting bored away with his phone.
Nessa was seated quietly, waiting for their order.
“But thinking about it – What if Bryan is actually chatting with a lady?…. And who is Annabel to him? Hope Bryan isn’t cheating on me again?” Nessa thought.
After a while, a beautiful curvy lady walked in with their orders.
Undoubtedly, Nessa wouldn’t deny how loaded and pretty the ladies who works here looks.
Who really knows if Bryan is actually coming here because of them.
Nessa hissed and watched the lady, placing the food neatly and gently in front of them.
“If you need anything else Mr Bryan, don’t hesitate to let me know” she smiled cutely at Bryan and he nodded, dropping his phone on the table.
“I’ll leave now” she added in a mutter, turning to look at Nessa and Nessa wouldn’t deny the hard glare she saw in the depth of her eyes.
To top it all, the lady actually hissed on her before leaving..
Nessa wore a puzzled look on. Now she get, the damsel actually likes Bryan.
She scoffed and turned to Bryan who had no idea of what was happening. He was eating on his food already.
“Bryan” Nessa called and he diverted his gaze to her.
“Why did you choose this restaurant?” She asked
He maintained a straight face while cutting on the beef.
“This is one of the best restaurant here in Dubai…. I like the neatness and how nice their food tastes.” He admitted and chewed on the beef.
“Are you sure?” Nessa raised a brow at him and that made Bryan glanced at her away.
“Are you sure you’re coming here because of the food or you actually like the ladies here?” Nessa added without even thinking and instantly, Bryan stopped eating.
His soft glance was replaced with glare.
One doesn’t need to tell Nessa that question pissed him. What was she even thinking when uttering those words.
“I’m sorry Bryan. It was a mistake. Am so sorry” she apologized nervously and he shook his head after a long silence and continued eating.
“Get done with the food, I’ll be leaving soon” he said, trying to keep his voice in control but the coldness in it was very obvious.
“Nessa what have you done to yourself? Look what your mouth has caused you…..” Nessa gave her lips a multiple slaps..
“What’s that for?” She snapped back into reality when she heard Bryan’s voice.
Wait, he was no longer eating and was staring keenly at her..
Has he been watching her…
“Bryan am sorry. I didn’t mean to utter those words. You can punish me anyhow you want, but please, don’t be mad” she pleaded regretfully and Bryan arched a brow.
“Who told you I was angry? It’s actually not your fault. You’re a child that’s the reason you intend to speak like one.”
He stated and Nessa was shocked
“Bryan” her eyes were welled with tears.
Bryan smirked. “I was only joking. Am not angry. Go on, finish your food otherwise, it gonna get cold” he sipped some water.
“What kind of joke was that?
“It’s high time Bryan stop calling me a child. I will be 21 in few months.
After awhile, both were done eating and went into the car.
Bryan started the engine, heading to the concert he talked about.
Not less than thirty minutes, he stopped at a beautiful building.
“Where is this place” Nessa wondered, stepping out from the car.
“Let’s go inside” Bryan said to her, leading the way as they approached the building together.
“Wow!! this is beautiful” Nessa exclaimed, looking around.
The place was crowded, big and beautiful. It was decorated with different colours of lights as a sweet low song played in the background.
Subconsciously, two huge men walked up to them.
“Good evening Mr Winthrop, please come with us to the VIP’S spot.” One of the men stated and Bryan nodded, giving Nessa a signal to come with him.
They got to a beautiful table, different from others. It was more like, it was reserved for Bryan only.
Seated on the spot, Bryan brought out his phone and began operating on it.
“What’s he always doing with his phone.
Nessa hissed and looked at everyone else.
The place was crowded with beautiful ladies and handsome men’s .
The ladies were all dressed in skimpy clothes as Nessa could see their thighs, tummies and cleavages. Guess she was the only one here wearing a jacket and a trouser.
Gosh, she was d@mn jealous… The ladies were dressed in such skimpy dress in front of Bryan.
Even if he didn’t stare at them, she was still jealous.
Suddenly an average man walked up to the stage.
“Good evening everyone.” He greeted with a mic in his hand.
“We all know the reason we’re gathered here…” He smiled and everyone screamed a name that wasn’t quite familiar to Nessa.
“We’re here for our favorite super star; Mister Nathan” he screamed and the whole place was filled with a loud scream.
🗣️O my gosh!
🗣️My super star
🗣️I love you Nathan
“Without wasting much of your time, let’s call on our rock star Nathan_ to entertain us tonight with his enchanting song” the man continued and suddenly, everyone stood up with a loud scream again, gazing at the stage as a handsome angel, ran in.
🗣️Nathan,Nathan Nathan, Nathan, Nathan,Nathan.🗣️
“Is that Nathan” Nessa wondered, admiring the handsome young boy with a guitar on the stage.
Geez, he smiled, letting out his dimple. Can someone be this handsome!
He smiled sweetly to the crowd, waving at them all and instantly, the hall was filled with unexpected anointing.
People began collapsing by his gaze alone. Some where trying to go closer to the stage but the monsters called bouncers, stopped them.
Nathan shook his head, feeling so loved as he waited for the people to calm down before speaking. And instantly, what he wished happened. Everywhere suddenly became calm.
“Good evening everyone or rather, my lovers.” He said
🗣️I love you Nathan.
🗣️I can die for you Nathan.
🗣️Please notice me.
🗣️Nathan please let me come closer to you
Nathan chuckled, waiting for the hall to be calm before speaking again.
“Thanks lovers for your massive love. But before I enchant you all with my song, I have someone important I want to introduce you all to” Nathan paused and smiled before he continued
“This person has been a helpmate to me. Infact, he’s the reason this title called superstar is being attached to my name. He has been a help mate to me, a father and a friend.. Without Mr Bryan Winthrop, I won’t be where I am today.
“Wait Bryan” Nessa’s eyes beamed as she moved her gaze slowly to Bryan. And behold, he locked gaze with Nathan, giving him a thumb up before looking away.
“Please can the media show him on the screen so everyone could get to see this precious man who made me who I am today..” Nathan’s eyes never left Bryan.
One could tell behind his smile, they’re millions of emotional stories to talk about.
Suddenly, Bryan’s face was shown on the screen. People started screaming and clapping.
🗣️Thanks for making our Nathan who he his today!
🗣️He’s so cute!
🗣️Am actually crushing on him!
🗣️We love you Mr Bryan!
🗣️Thank you so much Mr Bryan!
Nessa was stunned. Nathan spoke up again immediately the hall was quiet. “Thanks my lovers! Mr Bryan here has been a good father, an elder brother, best friend and a great adviser to me.
“I was gonna introduce him early to you all but he hasn’t been around and now he’s back, seated with us, I decided to seize this moment to thank him. He’s the kind of a person everyone needs in their lives. Please can you join me thank him once more.
🗣️Mr Bryan thank you!
🗣️We love you!
🗣️Thanks so much.
Bryan was seated there and didn’t even utter a word.
He flashed a smile to the crowd, which Nessa knows didn’t come from his heart..
“Thanks alot dad” Nathan said and sighed.
“With that being said, who’s glad Valentine is around the corner?”
Everyone raised their hands ecstatically
“My lovers people. Well, I’ll be holding a concert on that day by this same time. You are all invited to come with your spouse and celebrate valentine with me.” he said and everyone cheered joyfully.
Nessa covered her ears. Jeez!
“These people screams alot… How do they do it? Do they have speaker in their mouth?
“Thanks my lovers. Okay I will be performing a song titled; you’re still the one”
Immediately Nathan made mention of the name, everyone jumped up and screamed again.
🗣️I love this song.
🗣️Wow!!! It’s one of my favourite
🗣️My favourite star!
Nessa watched everything going on while still seated. Guess she was the only one new to Nathan’s songs. Infact, she had no idea someone like Nathan was existing.
She shook her head wryly. Funny how they are thousands of people on earth, and we don’t get to know them all.
After the hall was quiet, a heart felt instrument started placing in the background.
“I know this beat somewhere, but where?” Nessa thought.
Nathan made ready to sing and everyone brought out their phone immediately to make a video of him.
🎵>You’re Still The One<🎵
🎵Looks like we made it🎵
🎵Look how far we’ve come, my baby🎵
🎵We might have took the long way🎵
🎵We knew we’d get there someday🎵
🎵They said, “I bet, they’ll never make it”🎵
🎵But just look at us holding on🎵
🎵We’re still together, still going strong,🎵
Everyone joined in singing the next line with him in a happy ovation.
🎵You’re still the one🎵
🎵 You’re still the one I run……. to🎵
🎵The one that I belong………. to🎵
🎵You’re still the one I want……for life🎵
“🎵(You’re still the one)🎵” everyone screamed.
Nessa grinned. she knew it. She knows this song somewhere!…
Valerie do play it everytime at school. So, Nathan was actually the one that sang this song. What a coincidence. He happens to be Valerie’s role model.. awwn!!!!
🎵You’re still the one that I…love🎵
🎵The only one I dream……….of🎵
🎵You’re still the one I kiss goodnight🎵
🎵Ain’t nothin’ better
We beat the odds together🎵
🎵I’m glad we didn’t listen🎵
🎵Look at what we would be missin’🎵
Nathan continued singing and Nessa thought, isn’t it high time she helps her best friend in her music career?
She knows so well Valerie got no voice for singing, but she can talk to Bryan to talk to Nathan.
He can help build her up……. That’s a perfect idea.
Bryan was seated opposite her and won’t be able to hear her due to how noising the hall was so, she brought out her phone and typed.
“Bryan please can you help me talk to Nathan to help my best friend Valerie, in her music career?”
After she was done typing, she stretched forth her phone to him, dropping it on the table for him to see.
He was actually typing on his phone but stopped when he saw her phone In front of him….
He peek a look at it and looked away instantly, concentrating on his phone again.
Wtf!!! Nessa felt embarrased…. She glared at him and shone her phone back into her jacket before concentrating on the stage.
More than an hour, the amazing song ended.
Nessa pouted as she never wanted it to end soon. But the fact was, she was sleepy and tired. It past 9pm already…
Bryan stood up after a while and Nathan came running to him with bouncers covering him to prevent the people from coming closer.
He neared and pulled Bryan for a passionate hug.
“Thanks Dad” he said, tightening his grip around him.
“I’m proud of you son. Keep on making dad proud!” Bryan said, patting his back.
The both of them kept on talking and talking and Nessa was so tired and sleepy.
After sometime, both walked towards her…
“Hello Mrs Bryan winthrop” Nathan said to Nessa, stretching his hand forward for a handshake.
Nessa bit her lip in admiration. She felt like passing out…
Her heart was racing in rapid. This was actually the first time being close to a celebrity..
“Hi!” Nessa fluttered, reciprocating to his handshake..
“Dad I’ll do as you said” Nathan said to Bryan immediately they detached from the handshake.
“Why does this guy keep on calling Bryan his dad?” Nessa wondered.
She clearly well knows Bryan is much older but, that doesn’t mean he should keep on calling him his dad.
“But come to think of it, since he calls Bryan his dad, does that mean am his mom?” Nessa smiled stupidly at herself and exclaimed the moment she felt a sharp pain on her cheek.
“Bryan” she winched when she realized he pinched her there. Nathan was gone already. But when?
“What’s going on in your head?” Bryan asked, picking up his car key from the table.
“Nothing. Nothing” Nessa rubbed her cheek.
“Stop smiling. Let’s go” Bryan stated before leaving
“Okay” Nessa followed.
The drive home was so cool and quiet and Nessa didn’t realize when the cozy breeze took her to the dream land.
A light tap on her knuckles woke her up.
“OMG” she yawned, stretching her body.
“Get down, we’re home already” Bryan said, alighting from the car and Nessa did same.
She followed him into the house, stopping at the living room which was dark due to the bulbs that were turned off…
Bryan put on his phone torch and looked at Nessa..
“Mom will be home tomorrow. Have a good night rest” he muttered and was about approaching the stairs, Nessa grabbed a hold of his hand.
“What happened messy?” He asked mildly.
“Bryan, Bryan, Bryan” she stuttered nervously. She was just too scared to tell him what’s going on in her head.
“It’s fine dear, talk to me” Bryan faced her, caressing the back of her head.
“Bryan I can’t sleep alone in that passage.” She pouted like a baby.
He arched a brow. He looked around before looking back at her again. “Will you join me in my room?”
“Yes” Nessa replied immediately. Feeling so excited and safe.
“Okay Let’s go” he said, holding her hand as they climbed the stairs together.
