💨 Amber POV💨
"you must find a way to get that account Amber" my boss said to me
"but we've tried our best sir but the owner won't give us an audience" she said
"then you must try further, you know we need this account and you are the head of accounts, giving up is not an option" he said
"I know sir but they said they don't want our advertising agency to do the commercial for them,we always talk to his assistant, he won't even meet with us" I said
"you've got to try amber,we need that account,so now go and think of ways that we can get the account" he said dissmissing me.
I walked out of his office feeling frustrated, its been three months,three good months that we've been trying to get the account but they don't want our agency to do it,they were a big company and they didn't want their company,what more can she do.
a little intro about myself,am amber ray,24years,am what people will call average beauty and am kind but if crossed or mess with I give them back,well enough about me for now.
I went to my office and saw rose my closest colleague and friend.
"so what did he say" she asked
"we need to get the account no matter what" I said and she gave a very loud groan.
"I just can't rake this,why won't he just quit it" rose said
"he can't because its the biggest account ever,we have to do it no matter what,so let's think on how we will meet the company owner" i said
"how do we do that when we don't even know the owner identity, its only the assistant that we've got" rose said
"but we will just have to find a way to meet the big boss himself,he will have to talk to us no matter what" amber said
"fine then,you are also the boss too but first let's go and get something to eat,am starving a lot" she said pulling me out of my seat and together we both went to the office cafeteria.
we were eating our food when I heard his name being called
"its Chris van,oh he is so handsome,wish I could get him in my bed"🚺
" who wouldn't want him in bed,the guy is such a hunk"🚺
I stopped eating when I heard their conversation, its been years since I have heard that name,the name of the man that ruined my life
"seems like Chris van is being talked about a lot,heard of him before" rose said and I could not even respond but she continued
"I heard he is here on a business trip"
"what? Chris here?" I said
"yes he is and why are you acting all jumpy" rose said
"I just,I need to go to the restroom,I will be back soon" I said getting up
I can't believe this, Chris can't be here,not when she have managed to make a life for herself here,not after leaving everything four years ago to restart her life here,if he was here,it meant trouble.
she remembered the past,her perfect little world had all been ruined by him,she gave him her heart but he broke it,she had often wondered how It will have been if she hadn't met Chris.
she didn't want to remember the past, not Now,but her mind keeps taking me to it.....I closed my eyes and let myself drift to exactly four years ago..
it all happened four years ago, I was still a student, a final year student, we had just finished an exam and I along with three of my friends went to the bar to celebrate, I didn't want to but they forced me to
"your gonna love it" Sandra said
"youve always take life so seriously just enjoy the party tonight" Melinda added
"fine then let's go" I said giving in.
the four of us got to the bar and ordered our drink
"guess what guys?my cousin is coming" Mary said
"oh yippee,I will get to see chris," Melinda added
"who is Chris" I asked
"have you never heard of Chris van" Melinda said
"no I haven't"
"well your missing,apart from being Mary cousin,he is the most wanted bachelor here,he is rich and let me tell you very very handsome"Sandra said
" and is he coming here "I asked
" sure and he is also bringing his sexy friends"Mary said
"there they are" Melinda said and I looked at the entrance to see four guys walk in,they all look really handsome, well except for one who is much more handsome,they got to us and the guys greeted all of us well except for me,I knew no one but my friends did
"so who is she" I heard the most handsome guy say
"she is amber ray,our classmate,we practically had to force her out to party with us" Mary said clinging to his arm
"amber this is Chris,my cousin, now you know him and isn't he so gorgeous" Mary said to me,I could only nod in response because I feeling a bit flustered and shy but he really is handsome,I thought starring at him
"why don't we all go and dance" Melinda said changing the topic
"am dancing with. you Chris" Melinda said pulling him off and the rest went well except for a guy called cade,who stayed back to chat with me,he is also handsome but not as handsome as Chris,he began to chat with me but I wasn't listening,I was starring at Chris and Melinda who was on the dancefloor,Melinda kept on pushing herself into him but I noticed that he wasn't really dancing, his mind was somewhere else but what could that be,I thought still starring at him and just then he starred at me giving me a smile and that got my heart fluttering
"I can see that your interested in Chris" cade suddenly said
"me?no,no your wrong" I lied
"you keep on starring at him and I think the feeling is mutual,he is more handsome than I am" he said
"no don't think that way"
"am used to it so don't feel bad and a little warning for you,don't get your heart mixed with chris,he isn't a serious guy,don't let him break your heart because I know that your a good girl" he said tapping my cheeks gently and walking off.
what was that,why did he say that,I thought.......if only I had listened to cade warning...........
when they all came back, we got back to chatting,I didn't really know what to say,so I didn't say much,Melinda kept Chris to herself through the whole night.
I looked at my watch and saw that I was going to get home late,my grandmother would be so worried.
"um guys I need to leave" I said
"so soon" I heard him say
"I think so,need to get home early" I said picking up my things
"why don't I just take you home" cade said
"no don't worry, I said quickly walking out.
I was still hailing a taxi when I heard my name being called, I turned and saw him
" I didn't get a chance to talk to you,but just want to say something "he said and walked towards me.
he bent and whispered into my ear
" I feel the same way too"and before I could say a thing,he kissed my lips and walked off.
I stood touching my mouth,oh God did he just kiss me but this is my first kiss,I had my first kiss with him......
I went back home still thiking about it,he said he felt the way I felt,could he like me too just by thinking that way,I was so happy.......
the next day, I went to school and was coming out when I saw him standing by his car smiling at me.
why is here............
I was coming out of the school when I saw Him by his car waiting for me.
why is he here,I thought and walked towards him.
"why are you here" I said
"to take you out and don't try to give me the excuse that you still have a class cause have already asked my cousin and she told me that you guys don't have any class,so shall we" he said smiling at me
"I don't really thi......" I couldn't finish my words because he put his finger on my lips.
"no buts amber,am taking you out okay" he said and before I could do a thing,he opened the door and I got in,he got in with me and drove off,at first I was feeling shy to talk to him but when he began to chat with me I found myself talking back.
he stopped his car in front of an amusement park
"why are we here"
"I heard from Mary that youve never been to an amusement park before so I decided to bring you to one and I promise that you will love it" he said and I smiled and together we went in and I wouldn't deny that I enjoyed myself with him.
it was late when he took me back home
"I had a wonderful time,thanks" I said
"and I also had a nice time,I like you amber and I know you like me,will you be my girlfriend" he said to me and i felt so happy and excited, have never been anyone girlfriend
"say yes amber, have never felt this way with anyone" he said
"just say yes amber,say yes" he said and I found myself nodding
"yes" I said and he kissed me thoroughly this time.I manage to say goodbye to him and I went home,thank God my parents weren't around,if they had found out that I was seeing a guy they would get real mad at me.
I got into bed only to think about my new sweet boyfriend.
we dated for about two weeks,going out on dates and kissing and cuddling, that was the only thing we could do cause I didn't want it to get that far,for those two weeks I find out that I was madly in love with him and I knew he loved me at least that was what he told me
I thought our love could withstand it all but all the problem began.
I went to school this blessed day and saw Melanie, Melanie looked at me with anger and disdain
"how could you?how could you get involved with Chris when you knew that I love him" she said
"I never knew that and besides I love Chris and he loves me too" I.said
"fool,do you think Chris love anyone,he doesn't,you are just another one of many,he will only use you and dump you" she said walking off
"what's going on" Mary said walking in asking what happened
"ask your friend" melanie said leaving The room.
mary walked in starring at me.
"what happened " she said
"Melanie found out that am dating Chris " I said
"am dating Chris" I said again
"listen to me amber,its because I know that you are a good girl that's why am telling you this, stay away from Chris" Mary said
"but why do you all keep on saying that" I said
"because its the truth,Chris is not the serious type,he won't love or treasure you, to him you will just be another one of his many lovers,don't let that happen to you okay,don't let it" she said to me walking off.
their words kept on ringing in my head until it was time for me to go home,as usual his car was there waiting for me,I walked to him and he kissed me
"why do I feel that you are angry about something,what is wrong?" he asked me
"are you just using me Chris,do you really love me" I asked him
"where is all this question coming from"
"they keep on telling me that you will only use me and that you won't treat me right and that you only want to sleep with me" I said
"and you believed them,you believed everything they said to you,I can't believe that you will do that" he said getting angry
"is it true" I said
"its not okay,I love you but I think you dont, you don't really love me,so its best we end this" he said to me
"no,please Chris no" I begged
"you don't trust me,so let's just end it". he said entering his car and driving off.
I felt really bad and awful and I went to his apartment to look for him
" oh its you"he said on seeing me
"am sorry Chris,forgive me,I won't ever doubt you again"I said hugging him
" but you will keep on doing it,am not even sure if you love me as you said"
"I do love you,what can I do to prove that to you" I said
"let's make love" he said
"but I already told you that have never done it before and that am waiting for the right man"
"and am I not the right man"
"you are,you are,fine then let's do it,if that will prove my love to you then we should do it" I said.
am I really making the right choice...I thought to myself
I woke up on Chris bed to find him not there,i have finally given myself to a man and it had been great,i went downstairs to look for him but didn't find him there, i was about going back upstairs when i heard his voice,I walked there and was about opening the door when he said
"I know my love,yes I will do it,yes darling,okay okay,I just have to do something and when am through I will be at your house" on hearing what he said i choked back my tears and went back to the room acting like I didn't hear a thing, he came back to the room and took me home even without me asking,i just couldn't believe what I has just heard,I couldn't believe it.
"don't call me today,I will be busy the whole day" he said to me before driving off.
that was when all my pain started.......
for two weeks he avoided seeing me,anytime I call him he wouldn't pick, I went searching for him in his house but wouldn't find him there.
then one fateful day,I decided to go and look for him in his house, I was shocked to find Melanie in his house putting on one of his clothes
"what are you doing here" I said
"what do you think" she said giving me a malicious smile
"Melanie who is there" I heard Chris say and angrily I went into the house,I saw him in only a towel, had he been making love to Melanie
"amber,why are you here" he said
"why did you do this to me, why" I said crying
"its something everyone does amber bear with it" he said
"but you told me you love me and a man in love doesn't do this" I said
"love?do you think I love you,I don't love you and I never will,am not a one man woman and I won't let myself be tied to a school boring girl like you" he said to me showing me his true colour
"I told you right,it won't last,so get lost amber,your reign in Chris life is over, let me rule now" Melanie said walking to Chris and kissing him
"don't be a fool amber, go away I don't love you okay" he said and feeling hurt and scared I ran off
I was shattered by what happened and I vowed to forget him, I continued my life,finishing my course and graduating it was Two months later that I found out I was pregnant, my parents got mad at me for getting myself pregnant at a young age and I was sent out of the house,I rented a small house and began to live there,I got a job as a secretary and was working and my child was growing,then one day I saw a news about Chris on the newspaper,he was getting married but not to Melanie but to a distant cousin of his.
I still felt broken and shattered anytime I heard something about him but this was worse,he was getting married,had he really forgot her,was he really not coming for her,she had always thought that he will come for her someday but he never did that and that got me more sad.
I then summon up my courage and I went to see him at his family house.
at first his maids didn't want to let me in and sent me away but it was Mary who helped me got into the house.
"he stays here all the time,I will go and call him for you" she said starring at my stomach,I knew she wanted to ask but she couldnt.
I stood waiting until I hears his voice
"why did Mary ask me to c.......amber?what are you doing here" he said
"I came to see you" I said turning fully and I saw his gaze landing on my stomach
"am pregnant Chris" I said
"what do you mean by so,you are the father of my child an....."
"and what?do you think am a fool that I will fall your tricks,that child in you is not mine" he said
"how could you say that"
"its the truth,you think I don't know that ever since you left me,you have been sleeping with all kind of men,take that bastard of yours to them" he said
"Chris how could you say that to me"
"you accuse me of betraying you with Melanie when you are the one who acts like a tramp a....." he didn't finish his word because I slapped him
"you cruel bastard"
"not as cruel as you,now get your bloody self out of my sight,you and your bastard child,I never want to see you again" he said pushing me away and I walked out of the room and out of his life....
FLASH BACK ENDS...................
and now he is back,I just hope I never get to see him
"amber are you in there" I heard rose calling for me.
"yes am coming out now" I said quickly washing my hand and walking out of the ladies room
"what's wrong with you,you've been in there for a long time" rose said
"its some indigestion I have that's it" I said
"are you okay now"
"yes I am" I said,we both return to work,I couldn't concentrate,I kept on thinking about what I heard.
when it was time to leave,rose and I head back home,we both share the same apartment, that was why I said we were best of friends,rose stood by me and helped unlike the friends inhad four years ago.
"mummmy" I turned and smiled when I heard his voice, my cute four year old son
"my dearest William" I said hugging him
"mummy I made a lot of friends at school today" he said
"why wont you make a lot of friends, you are my baby afterall," I said and gave him a hug
"so won't there be any hug and kisses for your aunty rose" rose said and immediately he went to hug her
we all went into the house,I began to Cook while rose began to set everything on the table
we all ate and chatted a bit and then I took liam to bed,reading his bed time story to him and when he had finally fallen asleep,I held him tightly in my arm.
we've been living well and in peace with my child,I won't let anyone come destroy the peace that have been living in.
I won't let that happen...
he sat in chair when his secretary walked in again.
"what is it?"
"those advertising people called again"
"why are they so persistent" he said
"it's a miss amber ray, she said she wants to show you their proposal" he said
amber ray,its been four good years since he heard from her
"set an appointment with her" I said
"amber there are some people outside, they want to see you" her secretary said,I wonder who it is.
"let them in" I said soon my parents walked in.
its been four good years since I have seen my parents,when they had found out that I was pregnant, they had kicked me out without even bothering to look for me and now they are here
"amber my child" my mother said walking towards me hugging me and my father joined in but I didn't hug them back.
"we've been searching for you" my mother said
"really? since when?" I asked
"for a long time" my father
"a long time that took you four good Years,for four years have been gone from your lives and now you come here telling me that you have been looking for me,well sorry mom,dad,have also forgotten that you both exists" I said trying to hurt them the same way they hurt
Chris betrayal would have been acceptable to me if my parents had stayed with me but they had sent me off in broad daylight, teling me never to come back, even when I was pregnant till I had my child,they never once looked for me
"amber we are sorry" my father said
"we made a mistake in the past but we are sorry my child,we are really sorry" my mother said too
"you think saying sorry will solve the problem here,well am sorry too but I don't want you both in my life or in my son life,so please leave and never return" I said
"don't make me call the security on you both,please go away" I yelled angrily and they went off
why did they have to come, why?I thought sadly.
later that day rose and the rest of the team came to me
"they've finally accept amber,global word company have accept to see us" rose said the rest shouted.
"is it for real rose" I said happily
"the secretary just called to confirm with us,they want us to show them our proposal" rose said
"but we aren't ready yet" one of their colleague said
"what if we fail" another said
"we won't fail,we always strive to get what we want and getting a contract with global world company will also go well for us.all we have to do is to believe, okay guys let us believe" I said and they all clapped and shouted believe.
when everyone had gone out,rose had stayed back
"we are to meet the boss himself tomorrow" rose said
"so he finally wants to show his face" I said
"let's be contented with that" she said
"do you know his name yet"
"no I dont but we will know it all tomorrow" rose said
THE NEXT DAY✌✌✌
💨 Chris pov💨
"are they here yet" I said to my secretary who was helping me to button my suit
"yes sir,they are all in the presentation room waiting for you"
"how many are they"
"they are five sir"
"and is amber ray with them" I said
"go and tell them I will be with them soon" I said and he went off
amber,the naive 19yearold i had tricked in the past,I wonder how she will look now,i hadn't heard from her for the past four year,I wonder what she did with the child she had claimed to be mine, is she Even married,why am I thinking of all this, I only came here to work, not to play,for four years now have changed from being a notrious rake to being a good guy,I wonder what amber still thinks of me,I thought as I went out.
"is everything ready" I said asking my colleagues that followed me for the presentation.
"yes,its all ready" they said
"we only have to wait for the mysterious boss to arrive" rose said beside me and we all laughed
"there are cameras around, let's be serious" I said to them.
"everyone please take your seats,he will be here soon" the Secretary walked in to tell us.
the other three along with rose sat while I stood,I was cross checking the papers when he walked in
"good morning everyone" immediately he greeted I recognise that voice, that voice was a voice that I could never forget, I looked up and saw him starring at me,Chris!!!Chris van, right here in front of me, someone I pray and hope that I never meet again,he turned out to be the boss of this company, why is life so cruel,I thought silently.
he gave me one of those smiles he had always given in the past but that was the past,this time she is more matured and wiser,she wouldn't let him fool her,if he could act like a professional then i i could too.
giving him everyone a smile,I began the presentation, showing him how we will help to advertise and market his products.
it took about thirty minutes for the presentation to end and as soon as it ended everyone clapped,I looked at him and saw him watching me in a strange way.
while he was talking to his secretary,I began to pack my things
"have got to go rose,please take over" I said
"but you are the one that is supposed to do it" rose said
"but you can do it have got to go" I said and was walking off he suddenly called my name
"amber, are you leaving"
"have got other things to attend to,if you have anything to talk about,you can talk about it with miss rose there,goodbye sir" I said walking out of the office.
while miss rose kept on talking,I kept on thinking about amber, I won't deny that she looks more beautiful now,she had looked like some sort of nerd back then but now she looks more beautiful,I wonder what she has been doing for the past four years,what had happened to her,I found myself thinking
"so sir what have you decide on" she said
"tell me how long have you known miss amber" I find myself asking
"for a while now"
"have you known her four years back"
"no sir,I just knew her when she moved here"
"and when she moved here,hoe was she" i said
"she was doing good and well" she said starring at Me weirdly
"do you know if she has children or a child or something" I said
"urrrrgh sir,I don't feel comfortable talking about miss amber with you,can we just talk about the presentation" she said
"fine, the presentation was great,I loved it,it's been the best from most of the presentation shown to me" I said
"so yes,I want your agency to do the advertising for me but it's under one condition" I said
"every future dealings that we will have will be between me and miss amber only" I said
"okay sir,I will tell her" she said walking off happily.
I don't know why but I find myself being interested in amber,I wanted to know what she has become and by working close with her,I will know more.I thought
"cheerrs" we all toated feeling so happy with the way the contract went,well except for me,if it were up to me, I would have cancelled the whole thing but its not in my power and I can't do a thing about it.
we've been working so much to achieve this and now that we finally have it am not feeling good about it.
"hey what's with the face, we are all so excited and you look like someone who just visited the dead" rose said
"I am happy" I lied
"oh no in all of the excitement I forgot to tell you guys a condition he had set out" she said
"condition?what condition" she said
"its that he only wants to deal with you,all the transactions and other things will done with you" she said smiling
why the hell did he set that kind of condition, what does he want, she thought.
"you know through the whole thing, he kept asking about you" she said
"like when you came and what you did then and also somethings but I didn't really give him the right answers"
"did you tell him that I have a child" she said
"no I didn't,I didn't let it get that far but I thinks he likes you" she said smiling
if only she knew that Chris could never like anyone,he is just a selfish bastard who just thinks only of himself.
they got back home feeling exhausted and drained,her son was already asleep,while rose made the food,she went for her night run.
she kept on wondering why Chris would want to deal with her,she didn't want to have anything to do with him,she didn't want him meeting his son, she didn't want him getting back into their lives,so the best thing for her is to quit.
she was still running and thinking when a car horn brought her back to reality
she stopped shocked and frightened,it had almost hit her.
"are you okay miss" she turned when she heard his voice
"amber!!" he said on recognizing her.
"sorry I got in the way,I better go" she said but he held her back
"why go so soon,would you like me to drive you home" he said
"no chris, as you can see am having my excersice" I said which was a wrong thing to say because that made him stare at my body, the bloody bastard hasn't even changed ,I thought
"do you live around here"
"yes I do" I said
"where exactly" he said and that made me suddenly angry
"why do you want to know" she yelled at him angrily
"its just for know...."
"am sick of pretending okay,its been four long years and we parted in the worst way as possible,so why are you acting like I was a long time friend" I said
"but aren't you a friend " he said
"no,am not a fiend to you, I can never be a friend to a heartless monster like you" I said walking off but he pulled me back
"is it still the past are you still hooked on it" he said and she slapped him hard on the face
"I should have done this the moment I saw you again,bastard" I said walking off angrily
THE NEXT DAY✌✌✌
"quit,like seriously you want to quit" her boss said again
"yes I want to" I said
"but we just got a very big contract,you just can't leave"
"its something very urgent,I have to leave soon" I said
"and could that something urgent be me" Chris said walking in,why is he here?
"and could that something urgent be me" he said walking in
why was he here,just seeing him again got my blood boiling
"Mr van,welcome Sir" I watched my boss treating him well,bringing out a chair for him
"I heard you saying something amber,are you leaving because of me" he said again
"why would she do that sir,she just have a pending thing to do that's why she wants to leave" my boss said
"I will leave you both to talk about business" I said walking off
"once you leave this room,the deal I made will be withdrawn" he said and I stood suddenly starring at him
"wh....what do you mean by that" my boss said
"I told miss rose yesterday that I will only deal with miss amber here but it seems like she is kind of mad at me" he said smiling at me
"and why would I be mad at you, you did nothing to Me for me to be mad at" I said holding back my anger
"okay, okay,okay,okay,let's think this through, amber please,talk to Mr van,don't leave yet the company needs you" my boss said again
"but nothing amber,he only wants to deal with you, so please talk about it with him,don't leave yet" he said and left the office.
"why the hell did you do that" I said
"that's to show you that no one say all those trash you said to me last night and go Scot free" he said
so he was doing this because of what i said to him lastnight,
"you haven't changed at all" I said
" don't get me wrong,I have change,I turned a new leaf years ago"he said
"oh really?what changed you?or better yet let me think,getting married changed you right,it turned you from being a heartless bastard to being a good bastard right?" I said
"marriage didn't do it,I just thought it was time that I stopped being the badboy" he said smiling
"and you certainly need an applause for that right? well I don't care,you being a good guy is your problem, find someone else to meet and discuss the term of the contract cause am leaving" I said and was about to leave when he held my hand
"let go of me" I said angrily"
"I....." he couldn't finish his sentence because my phone rang,I picked up my phone because I knew it was from my son school
"yes?" I said
"am afraid to tell you that your son is sick, we think its chiken pox" she said
"pox?my God where could he have gotten that" I said
"we also don't know"
"okay I will be there soon,keep an eye on him" I said and switched the phone off
"what's wrong" he said
"leave me alone" I yelled at him and ran off.
I stood in the room staring at her as she ran off,what could have made her act like that,I had thought that by saying that I had changed I could get her forgiveness, yes I knew I had hurt her in the past,she was part of the many that I had hurt but I hurt the most and she is the only one who hasn't forgiven me yet,the rest had forgiven me but not her.
"Mr van sorry for amber leaving" he said walking in
"what happened with amber" I said
"Its her son,he has chicken pox" he said
"yes her son,a little boy and let me tell you that kid is a good boy" he said
so amber had given birth to the child
"does the child have a father,is urrgh amber married"
"no she Is not and the father,we don't know who he is,she never told us" he said
"how old is the kid"
"three I think"
so amber had given birth to the child and the father never showed up,who could the father be,I thought
"can you please tell me where I can find amber and her son" I said and he looked at me strangely
"urrrrgh you see amber and I have known each other for a very long time but we lost contact and now am just meeting her again, its only likely for me to want to know what she has been doing,how she has been living" I said
"well amber never told me you both knew each other,so maybe we can just do this,I give you her home address, when she is all settled you can go and see her and talk to her" he said and gave it to me
"so all business deal will be made with me and amber" I said and he nodded and we both shook hands
I got out holding amber address with me,she had given birth to a child,a son which was something I needed so desperately now, I needed an heir for empire, I wasn't getting any younger the darn bitch I had got married to prove to be a gold digger,she took contraceptives that prevented her from getting pregnant and she still lies to him,saying she couldn't get pregnant and that it was all my fault,I really thought it was my fault but when I found the contraceptive I got so furious and demand for a divorce but before I could get it,she got into an accident which ended her life,if only amber child had been his but he knew her child wasn't his,Melanie told him so and also showed him some evidence. I could still remember that day clearly
FLASH BACK ......... .. .
"Chris have got something to show you" she said
"what do you want" I said
"amber is not the girl you think she is,she is a darn slut and a devil" Melanie said
"I won't let you curse amber,just tell me what you want and leave" I said and she threw some pictures on the table
"look at that,she is cheating on you with a good for nothing guy in our class" she said and I opened the pictures and saw amber naked in a guy arms
"what's all this Melanie" I saidc
"its the truth Chris and very soon amber will come to you saying she is pregnant, don't believe her,the child father is the guy in the picture,he had rejected her baby and she wants to come to you with it" she said
"no amber won't do that,she is a decent girl and how do you know all this"
"its because the guy himself came to warn me,I even brought him here" she said opening the door for a guy,who walked in
"tell him andrew,tell Chris Here how you both plot to take his money" she said
"amber is the one who planned everything, I told I didn't want to be a part of it anymore but she wouldn't let me go,I got her pregnant and she took the child to you because I rejected it,don't fall for her trick sir" he said to me and then I knew amber isn't to be trusted
FLASHBACK ENDS. .......
she should just thank her luck that he has changed and wanted to always do things right,that's why he was asking for forgiveness from the people he had hurt including her but just remembering what she did to him, he regrets ever begging her.
on impulse he drove to her house and at that precise moment i saw her walking in with a boy in her arms,a boy who looked like me when I was young or I just wasn't seeing well,I better go and get a view of the kid properly. .
I walked in and dropped sick liam on the chair, I had to give him his food before he takes his medicine, I was about going in when my phone rang
"how is he" rose said
"he is a bit better,just need to take some medicine and then he sleeps" I said
"what do you want me to buy back home" she said and I began to tell her when the door bell ringed,I went to open still talking to rose when I saw him there
"what are you doing here" I said switching off the phone
"I just came to see the boy" he said and I knew already that it was boss Freddie who told him about my child
"for what?you don't know the kid,so please" I said but instead of leaving he went in
"hey I told you to get out" I said becoming scared now,I don't want him to meet his son but it seems like that is what he is doing now.
"oh God amber,this kid looks so much like me, he is my son" he said suddenly and I knew that all my problems have just started
"is he really my son" he said starring at my son, I quickly went to child lifting him into my arms
"he is not your child okay"
"but he looks just like me when I was little,tell me the truth" he said
"there is no truth in any of this, you are not my child father, so please leave" I said still holding the sleeping liam
"why do I feel that you are lying" he said
"think whatever you want,just get out before I get back" I said quickly walking off with liam in my hand.
after putting him to sleep for a bit,I stood in the room shaking, this is what I didn't want, the main reason why I wanted to quit.
I went back to the living room expecting him to be gone but instead I got there to see him starring at her photo album
"didn't I tell you to leave" I said angrily walking to him to take the album.
"amber why?why didn't you try to convince me harder" he said starring at the floor still Sitted
"try to convince you of what? have told you already that my Child is n......."
"for Christ sake amber no more lies" he yelled at me suddenly, I stood starring at him
"that boy is mine but you chose to keep the truth from me" he said and suddenly my anger erupted
"to keep it from you?I kept it from you?I just can't believe this" I said angrily
"you should have tried to convinced me harder, you should have made me have a DNA test with the child"
"and all for what? to gain your insult's right?well sorry Mr,he is my son,mine only,you denied him even before he was born and now you come back looking all macho and saying stupid things"
"you did it on purpose right, you hid the truth on purpose"he said
" me?hide the truth,wasnt it the same you that I came to tell that I was pregnant ,wasn't it you that told me to leave with my bastard,wasn't it you "I said angrily
"that was because you were cheating on me with a guy called Andrew and don't you dare deny it" he said
"what rubbish are you sputtering now,who is Andrew" I said
"I saw the evidence and Melanie brought the guy and he confessed saying that you were his lover" he said
Melanie had brought a guy,she had remembered that Melanie had been dating an Andrew then,an Andrew which she and the rest never met
"just admit it amber,you cheated on me and that gave me more reason to reject your pregnancy because they told me that you were pregnant for h......." he couldn't finish his word because I slapped him hard on the face
"you bastard,I loved you,I loved you a lot,you were the first guy that ever made me fall in love and just because of some lies....."
"it's not some lies,I saw the pictures"
"and I thought you were an intelligent guy,didn't you know that they could have gotten that picture made,I never ever cheated on you,Melanie was the one dating Andrew back then,she cooked up lies so she could have you and am glad she did because you both are suited for each other"
"amber nothing,talking to me would have solve everything but you chose to keep quiet and punish my unborn child and me,your nothing but a cruel jerk Chris,you have no idea how much I hate you,I hate you so much" I said crying.
"amber I didn't know" he said holding my arm
"go to hell,leave me alone" i said pulling myself free
"for four years my child and I didn't need you and we don't need you,so get the hell out of my house" she yelled at him
"amber we've got to talk"
"I said leave!!!!" I yelled and rose walked in
"what's going on" she said coming to Hold me
"tell him to leave rose,please make him leave" I said holding her and crying
"am sorry sir but you have to go away,please" rose said walking him to the door.
she came back to me holding me
"why is Chris van here and what happened" she said holding me
"its a long story rose,a very long one" I said.
"I hate you so much" her words kept ringing in my head,I had been so unfair to her,i had believed the word of Melanie, I could have talk to her but I didn't, I punished her for something she didn't do and because of his stupidity, he had lost his time with his son.
oh God what a fool he had been😢😢😢
I got to my office and dialled my secretary number
"Diane get me Mary,tell her to come to my office" I said and started to pace around.
I had to know, I had to get her to tell me if what amber said is the truth
"hey cuz,you called for me" she said walking in
"I just found amber" I said
"really?how is she?Its been four years and that girl never bothered to get in touch" she said
"she gave birth" I said
"well thats wonderful" she said
"and I just found out that that boy is mine" i said
"what?but how?,you said the child was never yours" she said
"that was what they made me think but you should have seen that kid, he looked exactly like me,there is no doubt that he is my child which is why I called you"
"tell me,am listening"
"did amber ever knew an Andrew back when we were dating" I said
"no,we nerver knew any one called Andrew well except for Melanie"she said
" I think she was dating an Andrew which we never met "she said and I hit the table angrily
Mary words were just the same as amber,he had listened to Melanie words against hers.
" what's wrong cousin"she said standing up
"I made a teerible mistake with amber,I ruined her life all because of what Melanie and Andrew said to me" I said
"what did Melanie and Andrew say" she said and I told her everything
"and now amber hates me a lot" I said
"If I were her the moment you walked through my door, I would have shot you" she said
"Mary don't make Matter worse please" I.said
"its the truth,you should have asked amber first but you believed them over her,that girl loved you a lot even when we told her to desist from you,she still kept seeing you but at the end you had shatters her and you think she will welcome you back with open arms,I mean who does that" she said
"I know have messed up but help me Mary,I want to get close to my child but amber won't let me,please Mary tell me what to do,please" I said pleadingly
"have never seen you this way before,does seeking her forgiveness matter to you a lot"
"yes it matters to me,a lot" I said
"I can't do it amber,I wont let you do this" rose said
*but have got to leave,go to a place where he would never be able to find me or my child"I said
"but you can't just leave,its nor going to end if you leave" she said
"it will okay,I won't get to sew that bastard and he won't get to see my child okay and if you won't help me,I will go alone" I said going to my room to start packing
"don't do this amber,your not thinking right"
"I am thinking right, it's you who is not thinking, I need to leave before he comes to take my child" I said and rose went off angrily.
at least she has finally leave me alone,she thinks I will listen to her and not do a thing,well she is wrong, am leaving and that's that.
it took me two hours to get my son luggage and I into the taxi have hired,I carried liam into my arms and got to the living room
"amber please think this through" she said
" no rose,I won't stay,when I get to my destination I will call you"I said
"and.what destination do you think you are going" he said and I turned to see Chris by the door,how had he known,I turned to stare at rose and she looked at me gutily
"how could you rose, how could you" i said
"i had to,you weren't thinking straight" she said
"and I thank you for calling me rose Now back to you,I won't let you take my son anywhere" he said starring at me in anger.
the nerve of the bastard...
