Chapter Three.

Adrie woke up before Alexa so she took her time to study Alexa’s room. Adriana felt kind of lonely because she misses her mom. hopefully, they will go see her in the hospital today as Ronald promised.

After sometime Alexa woke up too.

“Good morning Alexa,” Adrie said. Her mom taught her to always greet everyone she sees in the morning.

“Good morning Adrie,” Alexa yawned after which she pulled Adrie into a hug which caused her to giggle.

If a stranger walks in on them, he or she would think they are sisters.

They helped themselves out of bed after which they walked into the bathroom to pee and wash their faces.

As they were about to walk out of the bathroom, Clarice walked in on them, She greeted them, they did the same and she pulled them into a hug and kissed their forehead.

She took Alexa’s brush, applied some paste on it and then handed it to her. She reached for a new toothbrush and helped Adrie wash her teeth.

After they were done brushing their teeth, Alexa suggested they go wake her daddy up.


Ronald felt someone bouncing on his bed. He groaned as he knew it was no other person than his daughter, Alexa.

Alexa giggled as she felt her Daddy groan under the duvet. She then encouraged Adrie to jump with her.

Ronald couldn’t take it anymore so he opened his eyes and pulled Alexa’s leg which made her fall flat on the bed and he began tickling her for disturbing his sleep.

Alexa giggled out loud after which she began begging her dad to stop tickling her.

Ronald raised his head and saw Adrie looking at them, For Adrie not to feel left out, he started tickling her also which caused her to giggle.

“Good morning Daddy.” Alexa finally said as she kissed her dad on his cheek.

“Good morning sweetheart” Ronald kissed her forehead.

“Good morning,” Adrie smiled and Ronald pulled her into a hug and he kissed her cheek.

“Did you guys sleep well?” He asked them and they nodded.

“I miss my mommy,” Adrie said.

“Don’t worry we will go visit her today okay.” He said and Adrie nodded with a smile. She has never been away from her mom for so long.

“Can I come too?” Alexa pleaded and her dad said yes.

“What do you girls want for breakfast?” He asked.

“What do you want Adrie?” Alex asked her.

“Maybe pancakes.” She answered.

“We will have pancakes Daddy” Alexa announced.

“Okay, I will be right back” Ronald left for the bathroom to go do his business. He returned to his room and saw the girls watching what he knew to be Alexa’s favourite cartoon.

“Okay girls, time to make breakfast.” He called their attention and helped them down from his bed.

Normally, Clarice would have been the one to make breakfast but since it was a Saturday and the girls requested to eat something he could make, he decided to make breakfast.

Before Ronald had Alessandra, he took care of his home. Then, he was living in his luxurious two-bedroom apartment. He cleaned, cooked and did his laundry except for the exceptional laundry that needed dry cleaning services.

But when he had Alexa, he bought this mansion. A two-storey mansion.

When he moved in, he hired Clarice, Beatrice and four other security guards.

Beatrice is the cleaner. She comes every morning to clean the house and do the laundry.

Ronald also had a chef who quit when Alexa was four. He tried to hire another one but Clarice offered to take up the position since Alexa was no longer a handful and she does get bored at times.

So he let her and saw the need to increase her salary too. But he was always ready to give a hand where necessary.

Ronald made breakfast and they all ate after which Clarice bathed the girls and they went off to Alexa’s playroom to have fun. After that, Clarice started making food that they will take to the hospital for Adrie’s mom.

Ronald took his bath after breakfast and headed to his home office to do some work. After a while, he was distracted by his phone which was ringing. He took a look at the caller ID and it turned out to be his family Doctor, Doctor Philip.

“Hello, Doctor .” He greeted.

“Good morning Ronald.” He said back.

Ronald and his family had known Doctor Philip for such a long time, he was there during Ronald and his sister’s birth. The old but energetic man clocked 50 last year.

“Is anything the matter, How is Raina?” He asked.

“She’s fine. I checked up on her when I resumed my shift this morning. She’s awake and she’s requesting to see her daughter and the person who helped her.” Dr Philip said.

“My regards to her. Please tell her we’ll be there this afternoon and please let her know her daughter misses her too.”

“I will son, See you later then.” He said.

“Yes Dr Philip, Thank you.” He ended the call.

Ronald checked the time and saw that he could still work a few more minutes before they start preparing for their visit to the hospital.

When it was time to get ready, he shut down his laptop and walked out of his office. He went upstairs to his room and changed into a more friendly outfit.

Ronald entered Alexa’s room and there was nobody there, He checked her playroom to see if she and Adrie were hiding but he found no one. He walked out of Alexa’s room and went in search of the girls in the living room downstairs.

He found them on the dining table having their snacks.

“It’s snack time Daddy. You should come and have some.” Alexa offered with a mouth full of cake.

“No, thanks.”

“But hurry up, we have to go see Adrie’s mom.” He said.

Ronald walked into the kitchen and greeted a busy Clarice.

“Oh, you’re ready. Let me quickly clean up the kitchen and I will go get the girls ready.”

“Don’t worry. I will get them ready so you can get ready too.” he offered.

“Thanks, Ronald. I’ve already picked out their clothes. It’s on Alexa’s bed. The bigger dress is for Alexa and the smaller one should fit Adrie.” She said.

“That’s true. I was thinking about us going to the mall after the visit, to get some clothes for Adrie.” He said.

“Do you think the mall will still be opened by the time we’ll be leaving the hospital?”

“That’s true” Ronald mumbled as he reached for a bottle of water in the fridge.

“We can always shop for Adrie anytime. And in the meantime, she will wear some of Alexa’s clothes.”

“Okay, I will give you my credit card so you will go shopping for her on Monday.”

“The girls should have finished their snack by now. Let me go get them ready.”

About thirty minutes later, they were all ready to go. Ronald was the last person to walk out of the house, locking the door behind him. The girls were walking towards the car in their matching outfits with Clarice behind them holding a basket containing food and fruits in one hand and a bag on the other hand.

Ronald assisted Clarice in putting all the items in the car. He decided to take his other car which was dark blue and also spacious.

Ronald noticed there was a problem as there was only one car seat.

“Daddy, let Adrie use the car seat. She needs it more than I do.” Alexa offered as if she could read her Daddy’s mind.

“Alright cupcake” Ronald replied. He was proud of the young woman his six-year-old was becoming. He was happy because she was friendly and was always willing to share.

He carried Adrie and gently placed her in the car seat after which he buckled her up.

He also helped Alexa into the car, beside Adrie and helped her buckle the seat belt.

He and Clarice got into the front seat and they made their way to the hospital to see Adrie’s mom.
