At the mall, they shopped a lot of clothes, shoes and bags for Odeya. Then Desmond told Amanda to pick anything she likes as well but Amanda wasn’t confident to do so.
“No sir, I’m fine. Thank you,” she said.
Desmond went off and soon came out with a really beautiful light purple dress and on his other hand is a silver shoes which would fit perfectly with the dress.
He raised them at Amanda’s face.
“I think this would look good on you,” he said and of course he had no idea how Amanda’s heart sank at that. She quickly turned her back on him and placed her hand on her heart and of course Odeya saw that but she was too busy with something else.
‘What I’m I seeing? He picked it out and said it’d look good on me? Has he been checking me out? Oh my God. What do I do, what do I say?’
She breathed in then out and turned back to Desmond who still held the things.
“Ah.. I’m I..” Her words were failing her.
“Check it out, you can.” Desmond said.
Amanda collected them.
“Wow.. Beautiful couple,” One of the attendant said.
Both Desmond and Amanda looked at the lady “We are not couple.” they both said at the sane time.
The lady made an awkward smile. “Oh sorry, I really thought so. Come with me ma’am.”
Amanda followed her.
“Dad this is cute right?” Odeya asked her dad, showing him a matched Shirt and cap with the same design.
“Yeah it is but that’s a boy’s thing,” Desmond said.
“Yeah I know. I’m giving it to Jeremy.” she said.
Desmond couldn’t believe it. “You are giving it to Jeremy?”
“Yes dad. It look pretty right?”
“Yeah of course it does.” Desmond said and chuckled.
At the dressing room, Amanda wore the dress and shoes and the attendant’s jaw dropped.
“Oh my goodness.. This is so beautiful and perfect! I’m so jealous ma’am. You look like a total celebrity queen. Come on ma’am, he need to see you dressed in this.” she said.
“No no, I don’t want to. He’s my boss and don’t need to see me. I will take them off now,” Amanda said and went in to take them off.
“Her boss? Wow! I wish I had such a boss!” The lady said.
As Amanda walked back to Desmond and Odeya, Desmond was disappointed to see her not in the dress.
He was surprised at himself with the way he suddenly felt.
‘Was I expecting her to show me the dress on her? Was I?’ he questioned himself and it was obvious that he was.
He was expecting her to show him the dress on her. Like it’s a normal thing Ladies always do that.
‘Silly, she’s my daughter’s nanny, but…’
“Dad you’ve been staring at my nanny for too long.” Odeya said. Amanda who had no idea raised her face and looked at Desmond. Their eyes met.
Desmond immediately removed his eyes and turned to Odeya..
“Really.. It’s because there was something on her face,” Desmond lied.
“What was that?”
“I think a cloth thread but it’s out now.” Desmond said.
“But there wasn’t any cloth thread on her face,” Odeya said.
Desmond sighed. “Come on baby, let’s go to the counter and pay up.” he said and grabbed her hand.
The attendant carried their purchase.
Vanessa picked her phone and called Rock. He picked up after three rings.
“Hello madam..” Rock spoke first.
“Rock, I still need you in this. You and the person will get a $17,000 dollars.” Venessa said.
“Oh my godd!” Rock exclaimed “What do you want me to do and why did you mention me and the person? Who?”
“I need you to find me a guy with the exact body of Desmond. Both tallness, skin color and shape. Someone similar but you don’t need to worry about the face.” Vanessa said.
“Really? Is that all you want?” Rock asked.
“That’s first. I’m making a Desmond’s face mask. The guy would wear it to appear as Desmond and bring Odeya to me,” Vanessa said.
“That’s more like kidnap.. When are you arriving the country?” Rock asked.
“Shut the fuck, It’s not a kidnap. I’m taking my daughter. Just find a guy.” Vanessa said.
“Well, that’s not a prob. I got so many nigga’s like that. I’ll get one.” Rock said.
“If it’s that easy then I’m arriving Tuesday. The job would be on Wednesday. It must be a clean job.” She said.
“Of course. Rock can never make mistakes.” he said.
“Then bye. I would call back tomorrow morning.” she said.
“No prob.” Rock said.
The call ended and Rocks smiled. “Here comes another millions.”
(Later, at night🕐)
After Amanda had put Odeya to sleep.
She went downstairs to wash the dishes in the sink.
While she was doing so, her phone rang and it’s her mother.
She picked it up and knew her mom is going to scold her for not calling or picking her calls all this while.
“Hello mama,” she spoke first.
“Amanda Thank God you picked my call today. I heard everything that happened.” Her mother said.
Just like lady Monica, her mom felt sorry for Gold and said she’d keep praying for God’s mercy upon her and also for Desmond’s heart to soften so he can forgive her too.
“Amanda I think Desmond is truly your husband. ” her mother said.
“What do you mean by he’s truly my husband?” Amanda asked.
“Can’t you see for yourself? That lady wasn’t meant for him.. She used charm on him”
“But that doesn’t mean I’m meant for him or whichever way you want to put it. He has a daughter who only wants her mom and her dad back together.”
“But you love him, don’t you?”
“It’s too early. I’m sure it’s not what it appears to be. I’ve only spent a week here. It’s not possible to fall in love with him that fast.” Amanda said.
“It is very possible. You don’t need to spend years to fall in love with the person whom deserve you.”
“Mom.. You see why I don’t like calling you all the time. You always talk about things like this. Lady Monica told me everything. That this was all a plan for me to win his heart. What do you want me to do now. If he finds out, how do you think he would feel?”
“Then if you don’t want this, you should pack your things and come back. You can do that now before it gets too late, okay?”
“Mama.. How can you tell me to do that? I can’t leave Odeya. I just started working and haven’t even reached to be given half of my salary.” Amanda said.
“Is that the reason why you don’t want to leave or him?”
“Mama! Stop.. I told you I only like him as my boss. There’s no possibility that he would even look at me and right now, he’s not really himself. He might not even want to have anything to do with ladies again.” Amanda said.
“Amanda, if you know you can’t stay, you should come back. He will get another nanny for his daughter.”
“I will be fine. Lady Monica told me to take care of him and Odeya. I want to leave but then I don’t want to. I have no idea how I should take care of him but I want to.”
“You love him Amanda.”
“Yes I do. I love him but I cant have him. We are two different worlds. The plan of me being a nanny to win his heart wasn’t a good idea from you and Lady Monica. If I knew about it, I wouldn’t be here.” Amanda said.
“Yes I know.. I’m sorry daughter.”
“I will call you tomorrow. I’m quite busy and need to go to bed,” Amanda said.
“Okay my daughter. Goodnight.”
The call dropped and Amanda inhaled.
“I will leave once I get my salary. I can hold on until then.” she said.
“Where are you leaving to?” Desmond’s voice startled Amanda and she turned to see him at the kitchen door.
She was shocked and frightened.
Has he been standing there?
“S s sir…..” she stammered.
Desmond slide his hands in his pants pockets and walked into the kitchen.
“Oh my… I must have heard wrong..right?” he asked as he headed to the fridge.
‘Oh my God.. He heard it all. He’s been standing there all this while. Oh my god.. What do I do now..’
Amanda was shaking with fright and her heart was beating fast.
He opened the fridge and took out two cans of Star Alcohol.
Amanda dropped her phone on the counter to avoid it dropping off her shaking hands.
Desmond turned and walked to her.
Amanda noticed that he wasn’t looking annoyed at all.
He stopped in front of her and raised his right brow. “Yes?”
Amanda swallowed hard.. “A actually s sir…my my.. I mean I.. Had no.. Idea.. I wouldn’t be here if..if I did..” she said with her face down.
Desmond chuckled. “Really. Yes I heard it all. Argh my mom is something else. I can’t believe it.” he said and laughed.
Amanda looked at him.
He stretched one of the alcohol to her. “Let’s drink tonight too.”
“S sir?” Amanda mumbled, confused.
“Don’t you feel like drinking?” he asked her.
Amanda shook her head.. “N no sir. I don’t feel like.”
Desmond shrugged and let go of the can..Amanda was fast enough to catch it.
“Come to the table” Desmond said then turned and walked to the breakfast bar, sat down, opened his and began drinking.
Amanda looked at the alcohol can in her hand and exhaled.
‘I’m more scared with his act. Is must have questions for me. He must have heard me confess to my mom that I love him. Oh my god.. What have I gotten myself into.’
She hesitantly walked to the breakfast and sat on two stool away from him.
“Open it and drink” he said to her.
She slowly opened the can and drank a little from it.
“Do you too plan on using charm on me?” he asked and Amanda’s eyes widened.
“Sir? How can.. I mean why would I do such barbaric thing?” she said.
“I don’t trust women anymore.” he said and gulped down from the alcohol.
‘What do I do..’
“But you said you love me.. Didn’t you?” he asked.
Amanda felt like she was on a hot seat and the questions are too tough to answer.
She gulped down all of the alcohol.
Desmond did same.
“Argh alcohols do taste more good when you are in a really bad mood.” he said then stood up and walked to the fridge. He opened it and took out four more cans of alcohol.
Amanda was shaking both inside and outside. She could hear her heart beat pounding.
She was afraid she’d have a heart attack.
He came back and dropped two for himself and two for her. Sitting down back, he opened one and gulped down.
“Continue. It seems you really want to drink tonight.” he said to Amanda.
Amanda took one, opened and drank.
‘Oh my goodness.. I can’t breathe. What do I answer him. Please this should be a dream.’
“You said you love me but you can’t have me. Who told you that?” he said.
Amanda swallowed. “I…I ”
He cut her short. “Of course you can have me by..using charm. Are you so lame to know that?”
Amanda choked and began coughing..
She hit her chest to stop it.
Desmond chuckled.. It seem he was already getting drunk.
“You must be surprised. I’m just trying to help you..” he said.
Amanda’s choking stopped and she cleaned her mouth and her teary eyes.
She looked at Desmond and saw he was getting drunk. He had finished the secobd and was on his third can.
‘He must be a light head’ she thought.
She knew that her limit is five cans of that but he has only taken two and got drunk already.
“Sir I think you should go to bed.. You are getting drunk,” she said.
He chuckled. “Me? No way.. I can never get drunk. I’m just in a bad mood. You can go. I will be fine.” he said and gulped down the third. He stretched his hand and collected Amanda’s.
“Sir.. You can’t continue drinking,” Amanda said.
“Why shouldn’t I? It taste good.” he said and while opening the can, he got a cut.
“Ah, this damn thing!” he cursed and Amanda flinched when he threw the can on the wall. The sound was loud that Amanda feared Odeya might wake up by it.
She stood up immediately and rushed to him.
He was about throwing an empty can when Amanda caught his hand.
“Sir.. Please don’t do this…” she said and collected the can from him. She shifted the cans away from him.
“Your finger is bleeding.” she said. “Please stay still sir while I get water.”
She left his hand and rushed to the sink, grabbed a bowl, added water into it. Fortunately, there was s tissue roll beside the dish drainer, she grabbed it and hurried back to him.
His head was on the table but Amanda was glad enough that he haven’t slept.
“Sir.. Please don’t sleep off here.” she said as she took his hand and dipped it into the cold water. She washed off the blood.
‘Geez.. He has so much blood. Only a little cut and there’s this much blood.’
When she took out his hand from the water, the blood was still coming out.. She cut out a tissue and wrapped it around the finger.
“I’ll help you upstairs sir,” She said.
“No, You can’t do that..” Desmond said and stood up from the stool but as he took a step, he staggered back and Amanda quickly caught him.
The image appeared like she was back hugging him.
She released her left hand and held him around the waist with her right hand.
“I will help you sir,” she said.
“Why? Because you love me?” he asked causing Amanda to halt.
She searched for seconds on what to say then got one.
“Because you were about to fall. As my boss, I Can’t let you sleep on the floor of the kitchen.”
“Oh…oh.. I can’t feel my legs.” he said.
They finally made it to his room and Amanda dropped him on his bed.
‘Ahh that was a lot of work,’ she breathed out. His eyes were closed and Amanda smiled wondering why she felt butterflies in her stomach.
She looked at his finger and it was still bleeding a little.
“I’m sure Odeya have a first aid.” she said and went out to Odeya’s room.
She found the first aid at the bottom of her closet.
She went back to Desmond’s room and gave the finger a first aid treat which stopped the bleeding after which she bandaged it. Then covered him with the duvet.. Switched off the lights and walked out.
When she returned back to the kitchen to clean up the mess.
She felt really excited.
She kept smiling even though she doesn’t want to.
She was supposed to be in fear of being sacked because he won’t find what his mom and hers did funny but here she was, smiling and recalling the moments when she washed his finger in the water and when she caught him from the back. When she helped him to him room and when she treated his wound.
“Argh he’s such a light head” She said with s wide smile.
