Married To Mr Popular Episode 3
I gave my driver the location of the house and as I sat art the back seat headed there, he suddenly called me as if he knew I was thinking about him.
“Hey” he called and I breathed out softly.
“H…Hey. um…good day” I replied, unexplainably feeling twitchy.
“How’re you bae? You’re done from school already?” He asked and I nodded like he could see me.
“I’m on my way now” I told him and could tell it litted him up.
“okay dear. I’m waiting. Stay safe okay?”
and I dropped the call.
I brushed my fingers into my hair and staredstared through the window as a drove pass by big buildings, people and trees.
Nicole’s words suddenly flashed into my head.
I don’t really know much about Jackson. I mean, I just met him a month ago and he seemed really nice.
He asked me out and I accepted, but Nicole thinks I did the wrong thing.
Well, you won’t really blame me. I don’t know a single thing about love or being in a relationship. Mum is too busy to even give such attention to me. I’m always very lonely and just need someone to show me love and care.
But Jackson looks like a really great guy.
I exhaled deeply and shrugged off the thoughts. I’m sure with time, I’ll get to know more about him.
We finally got to our location and the driver pulled over in front of the white dazzling two storey building. I opened the van and came out with my bag.
“You can go on, Josh. I’ll be fine” I said to my driver and he nodded and took off.
I adjusted my skirt and went ahead to knock on the gate. I knocked twice before the ‘gate boy’ opened up for me.
“Hi. I’m here to see Jackson” I told him as he stood staring at me.
“Oh! You’re Bethel right?” He asked and I nodded.
“Please come in. He’s been waiting for you” he added and let me in.
I stepped in and ran my eyes around the dazzling house. Nothing’s changed.
Well, I’ve been here before -just once. But the first time I did, the gate boy wasn’t there.
Wondering why I’m calling him gate boy? Well, he’s too young to be called a man.
I walked closer to the house and knocked on the door and he opened up immediately, putting on a blue Jean, white sleeve and flying jacket.
“Hey” he called with a smile as his pretty eyes beamed.
I smiled back at him.
“You’re here already. Please come in” he said and ushered me into the house.
“So, how was school today?” He asked.
“Same as always.” I replied as I entered the exquisite living room and sat on a couch, dropping my school bag beside me.
“Oh! That sounds boring” he said with a chuckle and sat beside me,, throwing his hand around my shoulder.
“Anyway, thanks for coming”.
“Yeah. Are your parents at home?” I asked.
“Nope. They’ve gone to work already” he replied.
“Really? Where do they work?” I asked again and he sighed
“That’s not important. Don’t pester yourself with it. I’ll be right back” he said quickly and stood up, not giving me a chance to say something.
I exhaled lightly and tucked my hair behind my ear. Maybe I should just let it go.
I reached for the TV remote and turned on the flat screen TV in the room.
Perfect! One of Ryan’s musical video was being played.
I folded my hands and rolled my eyes before settling to watch.
Well, I must admit; he’s a pretty good dancer and of course, he looks really handsome.
Jackson came in not long after with a bottle of red wine and two glass cups and sat beside me again.
“Did you miss me?” He asked as he kept the wine on the smallsmall table in front of us and tried opening it.
“You wish” I replied with an eye roll and he laughed.
He opened the wine and after decanting it into the two glass cups, he handed one to me.
“Thanks” I told him as I collected the drink from him and took a sip.
I took my eyes back to the TV which was still about Ryan and kinda enjoyed the song being played.
“You’re also a fan?” Jackson asked, pointing to Ryan and I shrugged.
“kind of; maybe” I replied and he laughed.
“That’s a funny reply, you know? I mean, you aren’t sure if you like him or not?” He asked and laughed again.
Well, that’s one thing about Jackson. He laugh and smiles alot.
“Well, I do like him but…I don’t like drool on him like the crazy ladies do” I stated and he scoffed.
“Wow! Really? I guess that’s my baby gilr” he said and wrapped his hand around my shoulder and I smiled.
“Will you be going for his concert tonight?” I went ahead to ask.
“Huh? No; I’m not a girl” he replied.
“And what are you talking about? Girls aren’t the only ones who…”
“I know; I just don’t wanna go. It’s pointless” he cut me off.
“Don’t you like him?” I asked.
Why should I?” He said under his breath and I flinched.
“You don’t like him?” I repeated more keenly and he sighed.
“Just forget about it Bethel. I have no business with him. By the way, how’re you coping with your mum?” He asked, trying to change the topic and I shook my head.
I wonder why he’s acting that way towards Ryan.
“She’s fine” I replied in a low tune and drank from my glass again.
He didn’t say anything for a while and I turned and looked at him to be sure he was still with me.
“Bethel” he called and held my right hand.
“There’s something I need to tell you”.
I dropped my drink on the table and adjusted properly to face him.
“Okay. What is it?” I asked curiously, waiting for an answer.
He also dropped his glass on the table and held my both hands.
“Bethel” he called, staring into my eyes.
“Don’t you think it’s time?” He asked and I furrowed my brows in confusion.
What’s he talking about?
“Time for what?” I asked, not having a flick about it.
He bent his head and sighed and the next time he lifted his head he kissed me.
My eyes dilated in surprise as I fred my hands from his and pushed him away.
“Jackson” I called as I unlocked from the kiss, my heart beating rapidly.
Why did he do such a thing? I mean, I know he’s my boyfriend, but I wasn’t ready for a kiss.
I tried standing up, but he held me back and pushed me backwards, making me lie on the chair.
Next, he came on top of me and tried kissing me again
“Jackson stop it. Let go of me” I said as I struggled with him, but he weighed me down and went for my lips.
What’s he doing?

I tried pushing him away but couldn’t as he kept weighing me down and kissing me.
Next; he sent his hands under my skirt and my fears increased. Jackson can’t do this to me. I’m not ready for this.
Without looking, I moved my hand and reached for the glass of wine on the table and luckily, I was able to get it.
I took it up and poured it into his face and it inconvenienced him. That way, I was able to push him away and stood on my feet immediately.
“What the hell’s wrong with you, Jackson?” I yelled angrily and brooked him from holding my hand.
I nabbed my bag from the chair and ran out of the house immediately
“Bethel wait!” I heard him call after me but didn’t stop to look at him as I took to my heels and got to the gate.
I opened the gate myself and rushed out and thank goodness! I saw a cab immediately I got to the road and I boarded it.
I got home feeling really angry and perturbed. I was so paranoid. Why the hell did Jackson act the way he did? Would he had seriously forced himself on me? How could he do such a thing?
I was so restless and couldn’t even think of eating. I thought he was a nice person? I mean, I trusted him. How could he think of forcing himself on me?
If I had been unable to stop him, would he have really raped me?
I didn’t even take off my uniforms but just laid quietly on the bed.
What Jackson did was really shocking. I swear, I never expected it from him.
I heard my phone ringing and discovered it was him calling.
I ended the call and put the phone on silent, keeping it far from me. I can’t even think of talking to him right now. What else does he have to say?
I shook my head and stared at the ceiling. This is so dissapointing. Could I be making a mistake falling for someone like him?
I kept brooding about the whole thing and didn’t realise when I slept off.
I woke up hours later with my family still feeling heavy and muzzy. Well, how wouldn’t I? When I had been thinking even in my dreams?
I took up my phone and discovered 11 missed calls and 2 messages. What the heck?
I checked out the missed calls and discovered 7 was from Jackson while four from Nicole.
I opened then messages and both was from Jackson.
The first one read:
📱 Please Bethel, I’m sorry📱
And the second:
📱just pick up the call. Give me a chance to explain please📱
I rolled my eyes and dropped the phone back on the bed. The whole thing was still a shocker to me. So what could he possibly want to explain?
I was about picking up the phone again when I heard a knock on the door and sluggishly went to check it out.
I opened the door and surprisingly, well – not really surprisingly – it was Nicole.
“Geez! What the hell’s wrong with you, Bethel? Why weren’t you picking your calls? I called for like a hundred times” she said immediately she spotted my face, not even giving me a chance to breathe.
I looked at her from head to toe and confirmed she was looking good.
A black short, pink top and black boots.
“It was just four missed calls, Nicole. Stop being dramatic” I rolled my eyes and said as I made way for her to come in.
“Hold on;” she scoffed.
“Why are you still on uniform?” She asked and the thought flashed into my mind.
Gosh! I didn’t even realise.
“What have you been doing Bethel?” She asked, almost yelling.
“I was so exhausted and slept off Okay?” I replied and sat on the bed and she scoffed.
“Really? Do you realise what the time is? Bethel! You’re gonna make me late for Ryan’s concert!”
I almost forgot.
Oh! No wonder she’s looking so good.
“Come on, B; you’re such a kill joy. You know, I told you countless times to get ready in time so we can go early. How could you forget?” She said bittery and I sighed and stood up.
“I’m sorry okay? I’ll be done in a second” I said tiredly and walked into the bathroom.
I showered and came out with a towel and surprisingly, Nicole had already selected a clothe and shoe for me to make use of.
“Hurry up, Bethel. Go on and dress up” she said hastily as she took the cloth from the bed and handed it to me.
It was a short red gown and she wanted me to put it on with a blue sneakers which was already on the floor.
I shook my head and walked to the wardrobe to get my undies and after changing into them, I put on the gown and took a look in front of the mirror.
Geez! It was so tight and brought out my curves.
“Wow! You’re definitely going to draw attention out there B” Nicole said from behind, smiling.
“I don’t like it, Nic. It’s too…”
“it’s perfect” she cut me off and took a brush from the make up take, brushing my hair with it.
I sighed and folded my hands and watched from the mirror as she brushed and made my hair fall freely on my shoulders.
I took a red lip gloss and applied and that was the only make up I did. I didn’t like much make up anyway.
“Come on, come on, come on, Bethel. Let’s get going” she said as she took the sneakers from the floor and handed them to me.
“Chill okay? The concert isn’t running away” I grumbled.
“Yeah, but time is”.
I took the sneakers and went to my shoe shelf, keeping it back there
“And what are you…”
“I just don’t feel like putting on sneakers, Nic. I’ll just go for something simple” I interrupted her and took a blue netted sandals instead.
I wore them on and went for a blue emoji bag and when I turned to look at Nicole, I noticed she was staring and smiling at me.
“What’s wrong?” I asked with a scoff and she smiled even wider.
“You’re just beautiful Bethel” she said and I blushed but tried to conceal it with an eye roll.
“So…can we get going?” I asked and she laughed and took her bag and phone and we left the room together.
