Chapter 34 let the games begin.
Maria Ramirez was furious!
"You are not welcomed here". She spat out!
"And why the hell not?" Mr Martin asked
"Do you want to tell him or should I?" The red head asked.
"Do whatever you want, I don't care" I told her.
"What's going on here?" Mr Martin asked
"We had a personal dispute and I smashed her car lights" I told him.
"You did what?" Kyle asked....
I felt Kimone squeeze my hand and I looked at her.
"Don't leave" she whispered.
"Don't worry honey, I'm not going anywhere" I told her.
"We'll see about that " the red head said and she left.
At this point I cared zero about her and what she wanted to do, frankly I was tired of all her shit. Yeah I was wrong for damaging her car and I'm prepared to face the consequences. Come what may, I knew I would make it through.
My mother sighed and placed her hands on her hips, I felt the need to apologize to her .
"I'm sorry mom"
"Its okay honey" she whispered.
I took my phone from my bag and called Alando
"Hey babe" he answered
"Hi boo, can I get your mother's number please?"
"Uhhhhh, okay, I'll WhatsApp it to you, is everything alright?"
"Yeah, everything's fine, I just want to speak to her about something "
"Okay, where you at though?"
He just had to ask the question, now what was I going to tell him? I really dont want to lie but I didn't want him to know that I was here.
"I'm visiting a friend, send the number please" and I hung up.
Ten seconds after, I received two whatsApp messages from Alando.
"Message1 Mom: 1-927- 886-7888"
"Message 2: Which friend are you visiting though?"
I saved the number to my phonebook and ignored the second message. I then sent a text to his mother telling her what had happened, the text quickly turned blue instantly signaling that she read it.
She texted back:
"Okay my dear, I'm near by the hospital, I'll be there in a few"
"Okay" I replied.
I looked up to see Kyle, Mr. Martin and my mom watching me.
"You met his mother?" Kyle asked
"Yes I did"
"Wow, that says alot" he replied.
"Miss Lyons may I have a word with you outside please?" Mr Martin asked.
"Let's go to the cafeteria" I told him and we left.
"What do you think the young lady's gonna do?" He asked
"I'm not sure, but whatever it is I can handle it" I assured him.
"Nicole, I can't have my new fixed op director involved in a scandal or brawl, if it gets out it would paint a bad picture on my company"
"My personal life has nothing to do with my work life, it has never interfered before and its sure as hell wont start now" I told him.
He had now began pacing, looking like he was contemplating his next move.
"I just don't want this to end badly and have a negative impact on the dealership"...he said
"So what is it exactly that you're saying right now Mr. Martin?" I asked
He was about to answer when my phone rang, I looked and saw that Alando was calling.
"Come to my office nowwww!" He snarled.
"Stay here, I'll be right back" I told Mr Martin.
"But we're not finished "
"I know, I'll be back soon" I told him and went to find out what Alando wanted.
I opened his office door to see Alando, his mother and Maria Ramirez. I swallowed hard and closed the door, Alando's face was hard and I could feel his green eyes burning through my skin.
"Hello love" his mother greeted as she came forward and kissed the two sides of my face.
"Hello Mrs king" I replied trying hard not to blush.
She walked back to the desk and Alando got up giving her the seat.
"So apparently there's a problem within my family that looks like its about to get out of hand and as you all know with the exception of Nicole here, this family does not do drama"
The red head nodded but Alando stared at me like he wanted to strangle me.
Mrs King turned to Maria;
"Miss Ramirez, I need you to forget what happened between you, my son and Nicole, it ends now. We will repair the damages done to your car and that should be the end of it understood?"
Maria hesitated for a moment until she finally nodded in agreement.
"I need to hear the words from your mouth Maria" Mrs. King told her.
"Yes Mrs. King" she replied.
Mrs King looked like a queen ruling on her throne. She was graceful and spoke with eloquence, I admired her.
She looked at Alando
Then she looked at me
"Yes Mrs. King, I understand "
"Well then, glad that's settled.... see you at home, I trust you'll be there as well Nicole?" She asked as she got up from the desk and took up her bag.
I looked at Alando and he nodded.
"Yes ma'am I'll be there"
"Great" she said
And she left.
Maria stood there fuming,
"I fucking hate you Alando? How could you choose this bitch over me?"
"This bitch?" I interrupted
Alando dragged my arm and placed me in the chair to sit.
"Shush Nicole..... Get out of my office Maria!" he told her dryly.
"You took her to the house knowing my mother works there.... Te odio a ti y a esta perra (I fucking hate you and this bitch).
"vete a la mierda" (fuck you) I shot back.
"cállate a los dos!" (Shut up both of you) Alando yelled. "Maria, I need you to get out of my office right now and dont let me drag you out"
"Bastardo!" She yelled at him and stormed out.
He turned to look at me..
"I feel like breaking your fucking neck right now " he growled at me.
I stood frozen in the chair and said nothing as I didnt want to worsen his mood.
"You've done so many things Nicole, first you busted her lights, answered my phone and argued with her, now you show up at the hospital when I distinctly told you not to"
I rolled my eyes and and got up out the chair, I didn't want to be alone with him right now but he shoved me back down.
I gasped with fright.
"What the hell is your problem?" I asked him.
"Your stubbornness is my problem, you don't listen!" He glowered over me.
"Well, there's a simple solution for that, leave me alone!"
"Okay fine.... I'll do just that!" He replied,
He quickly went and opened the door, I knew that was my que to leave so I left without looking back.
I returned to the cafeteria to see Mr. Martin and Mrs King in deep discussion.
"I didnt know you guys knew each other" I said as I approached them.
"Yes we do, Mr. Martin said "Mrs King here and my mother were great friends, she would make alot of Iotions and shampoos for my entire family before she became this big successful worldwide cosmetic brand" he told me..
"Worldwide cosmetic brand?" I asked
"You're looking at the c.e.o and founder of Spicey lsland Cosmetics " he said proudly while she smiled in agreement. "You didnt know this?" He asked me.
Wow, I would never have guessed that Mrs. King was the owner of number one selling cosmetic brand in the country.
"Ummmm, no I didnt, but it explains the exotic scents everyone in her household has"
"I'll develop a new fragrant for you in the near future" she told me as she pinched my cheek .
Alando came in the cafeteria,
"Mother I'd like to speak with you"
"Okay I'll meet you in your office"
After she left I had started to explain to Mr. Martin about the situation between Maria and I, he told me it was okay as Mrs. King told him everything and that she had fixed it so he was not worried anymore. I now understood why his mother was so eager to fix everything, as she didnt want her son's name to be involved in a brawl on social media or in the tabloids. I was really glad this was over and it would stay that way as I had made a decision to leave her son alone. I would no longer be a problem in his life and Maria could have him for all I cared.
Ring ring ring....
"Aye papi, it's Maria"
"Hey beautiful, what's poppin"
"I have a situation that needs fixing "
"What type of situation?
"I need you to make someone disappear "
"Sounds do-able, that'll be $10,000"
"Okay papi, I'll contact you as soon as I have the money"
"Okay beautiful "
(Hangs up phone)
"Okay motherfucker..... let the games begin".
