(She’s too Perfect)
This story is officially written By: Faith Lucky.
The road to school was a very long one and I felt like crying.
And I wasn’t even getting close yet.
“Maxine!” I heard someone call from behind and tiredly turned to have a look.
“Pablo!” I beamed as he scuttled to where I was, holding a box of pizza.
“Little pretty girl” he laughed.
That’s what he always calls me.
“Good morning” I greeted, stealing sometime to rest.
“Yeah – hey, why are you walking around? Shouldn’t you be in school?” He asked and I itched my head.
“Uh…actually, I’m on my way to school” I replied.
“Huh? Don’t tell me your sisters left you behind again?”
“Well…?” I shrugged and he shook his head
“Well, it’s your lucky day. Come on; I’ll give you a ride” he said and my eyes beamed.
Ah! Thank goodness.
“Thank you so much” I said hopefully and followed him to his car.
Might be wondering how I got to know him?
Well, he owns a classic bar and I go there on most occasions to dance – yeah. I entertain his customers by dancing on stage and in return, I get paid. Well, just so you know, my uncle doesn’t really care much about my educational fees and in most cases, I tend to provide for myself. And this semester has been the worst. He hasn’t paid a dime from my fees and the principal’s already threatening to kick me out.
Plus, I’ve got books to buy and also need a new school bag and pair of shoes. The one I’m currently having can make a blind man laugh.
So, Pablo offers me an opportunity to make little money from him by dancing in his bar and get paid. And despite the fact that my family’s warned me to stop dancing, I’ve got no option but have to do it.
“So, how was your night?” Pablo asked as we set out on the road.
“Well…same as always -I guess” I shrugged.
“When will your family ever change towards you, Maxine?” He asked, disappointedly.
“Anyway, will you be coming over to the bar today? I’ll be having lots of customers and perhaps, you might be interested?”
“Okay. What time?” I asked.
“Let’s say…when you’re done from school. What do you think?”
“Hmm. I think that’ll be perfect. I’ll sure be there. Thanks”
“It’s nothing, little pretty girl. Just make sure you come in time, okay?”
And we continued the ride smoothly.
I tied the white towel around my waist after taking a long sweet bath and decided to return to the room.
I couldn’t wait to eat and get some sleep.
I retuned to the bedroom and surprisingly, met dad on the bed.
Oh! He’s back.
“Dad!” I called warmly and budged forward.
“Son! How was your trip?” He asked, a little coldly.
Well, I’m really not surprised. That’s just the kind of person dad is. He’s very strict.
“Urgh..it was pleasant, of course. Thanks. I’m glad to see you”.
“Same here. I’m more than happy you’ve returned.”
He paused and beckoned on me to sit next to him and I did.
“So…Wat’s up, dad? Mum told me you wanted to have a meeting with me” I laughed at the end and he smiled.
“Your mother Can never keep a secret, huh? Anyway, yes. I wanna have a discussion with you. And it’s about the company, Noah.
“I need you to gain possession of it, but first, you need to get married” he said and I rolled my eyes.
Geez! I guess mom was right afterall.
“Married?” I scoffed.
“And why do I need to get married?”
“Because I wouldn’t want you squandering your money aimlessly when you take over. In a situation where you have too many women controlling you, you lose focus and put the company at risk. So, I want you, Noah, to get married and settled with one woman before I can trust my company to you. And I’d suggest you do it pretty fast cause time is not on your side.” He explained, making it sound more ridiculous.
“This is not possible, dad. I’m not ready to get married!”
“Well, listen to me” he reduced his voice to a mutter.
“If you don’t do it, I’ll be forced to give it to your brother cause I’m sure he’s more than willing to get married for the company. Think wisely, son.”
And he stood up.
“I’m giving you two weeks” he said.
“Just two weeks to find a wife of your choice and bring her to me. And if you’re unable to find a wife by then, the company and everything will go to your brother”.
And with that, he left the room, leaving me gob smacked.
