Married To Mr Popular Episode 7
I huffed and looked at him.
“What are you talking about? Let me go!’ I said and tried withdrawing my head from his, but couldn’t.
Surprisingly, they started dragging me away and I couldn’t stop them.
“Let me go!” I shrieked as they both held my hand and took me to the so called boss.
They stopped when we got there.
“What’s the meaning of this?” I asked in a peeved manner as I stood in front of the rogue guy who was smoking.
He chuckled and brought the cigarette down from his lips.
“What’s your name?” He asked after a pause and I scoffed.
“That should be of no concern to you. Just tell your boys to let me go” I replied angrily and scared at the same time.
I mean, they seemed dangerous.
He stared at me for a while without saying a word.
“I like you, and I want you.” He finally said with a leer and my fears increased, but I tried not to show it.
“Well, I don’t like you and I don’t want you. Just let me go” I said rather pleasingly and he smiled and leaned back on his chair.
“You tryna prove hard to get huh?” He asked with a smirk and next, he stood up.
Immediately, a police car drove in – not to our direction tho – but a plaza opposite us.
I turned and looked at the so called leader and noticed he also looked diffident.
Without any hesitation, I started run – walking away.
yes, I did and was sure they couldn’t follow me because of the presence of the police.
I ran as quickly as I could back to the car and immediately I got in, the driver scorched off.
Gosh! What a scare;
I really don’t know what to do about my shape anymore. It’s always getting me into trouble.
What would’ve happened if the police hadn’t showed up?
I looked at my hand and noticed I was still holding my sauced meat with me. I almost forgot. Still feeling hungry, I leaned back and continued eating from it.
We finally got home and I alighted from the car, feeling really buggered.
I couldn’t wait to go into my room and get some sleep.
I opened the door of the sitting room and surprisingly, I found mum sitting on the couch.
I paused at the door and stared at her, feeling surprised to see her there.
She was sitting with her hands crossed, going through some papers and holding a glass of wine in her hand.
I sighed and walked in.
“Good evening mum” I greeted perfunctorily as I got to where she was.
“And where are you coming from?” She asked without looking at me.
Her eyes were still fixed on the papers she was going through.
“I went for Ryan’s concert…together with Nicole” I shrugged and replied.
“By this time of the night? Do you even know what the time is? Don’t you know it’s risky staying out alone upto this hour?” She asked, now staring at me.
“Well, I had no idea you wouldn’t be sleeping at the office today. I’m not a ghost” I replied
“Shut up, Bethel. I don’t expect you to be a ghost before knowing the right thing to do”.
“Seriously mum, you wouldn’t blame me for it. I guess you have no idea what I go through staying at home alone, having no one to talk to. Sometimes, I almost forgot what it feels like being in the company of others and that’s the reason I make use of an opportunity when I see one” I replied rather angrily.
Then she sighed and stood up with the wine in her hand.
“Bethel” she called softly and used her free hand to brush the front part of her hair.
“I understand how you feel. But I want you to know everything I’m doing is for your own benefit. Don’t worry, there’s something big I’m working on and pretty soon, it’ll be accomplished and put an everlasting smile on your face”.
I stared at her in awe, wondering what she meant and she smiled.
“Go upstairs and get some sleep. It’s late” she said and walked away, leaving behind the papers on the couch.
I stood and thought for a while, trying to figure what she meant.
My phone started ringing, snapping me out of my thoughts.
I checked and discovered it was Jackson.
“Hello?” I said on the phone, taking the stairs.
“Bethel, can you hear me?” He asked.
I opened the door of my room and walked in, sitting on the bed.
“Bethel please, we really need to talk. I’m so sorry for what happened. Please give me a chance to explain” he pleaded on the phone.
“I’m tired Jackson; I can’t talk now”.
“Okay; okay. Why don’t we fix a date tomorrow. Huh? please. Let’s meet up and discuss”.
I remained silent.
“Bethel?” He called.
“Fine; I’ll let you know when I’m chanced. Good night’ I said and dropped the call immediately.
I took off my sandals and laid straight on the bed, feeing so tired to even change my clothes.
The next morning,
I woke up to the sound of my alarm which I angrily turned off.
I sat up on the bed and itched my eyes, trying to get over the sleep.
Gosh! I still felt so dizzy.
I left the bed and went into the bathroom to brush my teeth. Then, I went to the dining to check if breakfast was ready. I mean, I was starving.
As I climbed down the stairs approaching the dining, I saw someone already seated there.
I furrowed my brows in surprise as I went closer. What’s she still doing here? I mean, I can’t find the last time I woke up and found her still at home.
“Mum…good morning” I greeted with surprise.
“Oh! Bethel; you’re just in time to join me for breakfast. Come on” she said and I scoffed and took a seat, facing her.
She was already dressed up and it was obvious she’d be leaving any moment from bow.
She was putting on a white trouser suit with the upper buttons open, exposing her chest a little.
Well, my mum was a crazy fashion woman. She was very young and pretty and always dressed to kill.
If you weren’t told I was yer daughter, you’d actually think we were sisters because of how young and hot was. I know of countless billionaires running crazy over her.
Well, the truth is; I’m proud having someone like her for a mother. The only problem is; she doesn’t have time for me.
“By the way, Bethel” she said; breaking the brief silence.
“I want you to get ready in time cause we’ll be going for Ryan’s home – coming party tonight’.
I almost spilled tea from my mouth as it hit at me.
“R…Ryan’s home -coming party?” I shrieked.
“You mean we’ll be going to the Winthorpe mansion?” I asked with disbelief and she nodded.
“Why?” I asked abacked.
“And what do you mean why? I mean, everyone’s wishing to be there. Shouldn’t you feel lucky to be among the privileged?
“Anyway, Ryan’s mum invited me, so I have to attend. And you’re coming with me” she replied and took a bite from the bread toast.
“What is wrong with you, Bethel? Why are you dragging it?” She asked with a stern look and I sighed and looked down at my food.
But I’m supposed to have a date with Jackson today
Immediately, her phone started ringing and she mute it after checking the caller.
“I’ll be home to pick you by 6. Better don’t keep me waiting” she said callously and stood up with her bag.
“I’ll be on my way now” she added and started walking away while I just played pathetically with my food.
Why does she want me to go along with her to the party? What am I going to do with Jackson now?
After eating, I took my bath and got ready for school.
I still couldn’t stop thinking about the whole thing.
On my way to class, I was interrupted by two boys who stood in front of me, smiling like cats.
“Hey B” one of them called and licked his lips.
I huffed and tried walking away but the second one held me back.
“Hey, hey, hey; chill okay? Um…Mawthie just wants us to deliver this letter to you” he said and proffered a piece of paper he was holding.
Gosh! I should’ve known.
“Well, tell him to go to hell” I said and starred walking away but turned back to look at them.
“And one piece of advice; I think it’d be best if you stopped being errand boys” I added and continued on my way.
Mawthie was the leader of the gangster here in Royal High and he’s always been trying to get me on his side. But I guess his stupidity wouldn’t let him see I can never agree to someone like him.
I walked into the class and met Nicole there already. She always comes to school before me.
“Hey B” she waved at me as I got to where she was.
The ABC girls were not in class. Perfect.
“Hi” I said blearily as I took my seat next to Nicole.
The class was kind of noisy as all the ladies were talking about Ryan’s concert.
“Hey, are you okay? You look moody” Nicole stated with a grouch.
“Well, it’s mum. She’s such a kill Joy” I replied.
“Huh? What happened this time?”
“She wants me to go with her to Ryan’s home coming party” I replied and she screamed.
“Nicole!” I called in shock as all eyes darted to our direction.
Why the hell did she scream that way?
“What’s wrong with you?” I growled and she laughed.
“Oh, my! Bethel, I’m just so excited. I mean, are you serious? You’re really going to the party?” she asked and I looked around and thank goodness, the rest of the students had taken their eyes away from us.
“Well, yes. Mummy said Ryan’s mum invited her over.” I replied and she almost screamed again, but covered her mouth with her palm.
“Oh, my God! Bethel, you’re so lucky. But hold on; why are you looking moody then?” She asked with her brows furrowed.
“Well, I’m supposed to have a date with Jackson today…”
“What? F**k Jackson B;” she cut me off.
“Are you kidding me? You’re upset about going to the Winthrop mansion because of Jackson? Do you even know how lucky you are right now? I’ve called all my relatives around the city to city to see if any of them was invited to the party, but unfortunately, none.
“Don’t you know by going to this party, you have 60% possibility of getting to see Ryan face to face? You might even end up talking to him. Oh, my gosh! I seriously wish there was a way we could do a face swap right now, Bethel. I wish I had a mother like yours” she said wistfully while I just stared at her with disbelieve.
I shook my head and didn’t say anything.
“Wow! Kyle’s in school today” she said after a brief silence and I lifted my eyes to see the braniac – Kyle – entering into the class.
He was the most intelligent boy in school and was given an award last semester as the best student.
And for that, people nicknamed him – the braniac.
His uncle is actually the owner of the school, but he hardly talks and doesn’t have any friends and people actually think he’s snobbish.
“Seriously Bethel, you’re so lucky to be attending Ryan’s home coming party” Nicole continued and I itched my ear.
“I wonder what the Winthrop mansion looks like. I’ve only seen it on the net, but I’m sure it’s going to be more gorgeous than that…”
She went on talking and not long after, the crazy ladies walked in.
Yeah – ABC.
“Hey, handsome” Cheryl waved at Kyle as they walked pass him, but he didn’t even lift his head to look at her.
Alma and Blair chuckled and she rolled her eyes.
They got to their seats which were In front of Nicole and I – and Blair winked at me before they all sat.
Blair brought out her phone and surprisingly, the projector in front of the class got turned on and it started displaying pictures of Blair and Ryan together.
Not like they were together, but it was photo shopped and seemed so real like they had taken the pics together.
Huh? How was she able to connect to the projector?
All the students in the class gasped as they watched the sliding pictures on the projector.
This girl’s really crazy.
Then, Blair stood up and faced the class.
“How does this look? Aren’t we perfect together?” She asked, grinning widely.
“It’s dumb” someone from the back said and I had to smile.
Blair fumed and Alma stood up.
“Really? If it’s dumb, then you’re a dumb ass” she said and few students laughed.
Immediately, the projector went off and we all looked in surprise and discovered it was done by Kyle who had made use of his phone.
Wow! How do they manage to do this?
Well, like I said, Kyle was very intelligent and was also an expert in the tech field.
“Hey, why did you do that?” Blair grouse but he just focused on the book he was reading.
I think the only time I’ve heard this guy speak is when he’s answering a question.
Few of the students started sniggering and Blair and Alma had to return to their seats.
Hm. Serves them right.
“Wow! What an attitude” Nicole whispered to me and I shrugged.
The rest of the day in school was as usual and when I got home, I had to call Jackson and tell him of the postponement of the date.
“Gosh! I can’t believe I’m really going to Ryan’s party. What will I even wear?
I riffled through my wardrobe for a while and finally settled on a blue jean trouser and jacket.
I wore them on and applied a light make up on my face.
Mum told me not to keep her waiting when she returns. So, I wanted to get ready in time.
After a while, mum returned and we left for the party together.
Married To Mr Popular Episode 8
I sat next to mum in the front seat as she drove into the…
Oh, my God! This is paradise!
She drove into the black gate which had so many securities around and we entered into the Winthorpe mansion.
Oh, my gee! This is more than a mansion. It’s incredible.
No wonder the winthrop mansion has been the talk of the city.
The party which was a beanfeast, was taking place outside and mum and I alighted from the car after she parked in the parking lot.
I almost opened my mouth in bemusement as I looked around the mansion. Just the outside was looking this great. I could imagine how the inside would look like. Wow!
“Matilda!” a woman called mum’s name and scuttled towards us as we approached the party.
Oh! It was Ryan’s mum.
“Becky!” Mum also called and they both hugged each other.
Wow! Ryan’s mum was looking so beautiful.
“I’m glad you could make it” she said and took her eyes to me.
“Oh, my! Is this Bethel?”
“Good evening ma’am” I greeted with a light smile.
“Oh, dearie! How re you? She’s so beautiful”.
“I’m fine ma’am. Thanks”
“Okay Matilda. Come on; my husband’s been waiting for you”.
“Oh! Of course” mum replied and turned to me.
“Just make yourself comfortable okay? I’ll be joining you soon” she said to me and I nodded and she left with Ryan’s mum.
Hold on; what discussion does she have with them?
I looked around and started sauntering into the party. I don’t even know anyone here. I can’t believe mum left me all alone.
The party was buzzing with life as lots of people filled the place -most of which were average men and women.
I walked to a table which was empty and took a seat. There were already drinks on the table and I took a glass of wine to suit myself
By the way, where’s the celebrant? Shouldn’t he be around or something?
My phone started ringing and I brought it out from my bag and discovered it was Nicole.
“Hey Best” she said on the phone immediately I picked up.
Luckily, the sound of the music playing from the party wasn’t too high.
“Hey” I said lowly, sounding tired.
“Oh, my God! You’re at the party already right? Have you seen Ryan?” She said excitedly and I scoffed.
“No ma” I replied, itching the back of my neck.
“Awwn. Why? Anyway, don’t forget to take pictures okay? Bye” she quickly and ended the call.
Gosh! This girl’s really crazy.
I sighed and drank from my glsss again. What a boring party. Well, I guess it’s because I don’t have anyone to talk to.
I looked around and my eyes met with a group of boys, talking and staring at me.
By the way, where could Ryan’s step siblings be? Oh! Maybe they didn’t care to attend the party, since they’re not in good terms.
Or maybe they’re here. I don’t even know them.
I took my phone and started playing games with it. A waitress passed by with some chocolates and cupcakes and I took some from her.
I ate with relishement and played with my phone and after a while, I felt pressed and needed to make use of the restroom.
I stood up with my bag and looked around. How do I even get to the restroom? Where should I go?
I stopped one of the waitresses and asked.
“Please how do I get to the restroom?”
“Um…you can go to way” she said and pointed to a separate building from the mansion.
I thanked her and followed the lead but when I got there – to the entrance -I saw some guards standing there.
I tried going in, but they stopped me.
‘Sorry ma’am, but you can’t go in for now” one of them said and I flinched.
“Why?” I asked, surprised.
“You can’t. If you can wait a little longer” another replied, making me more confused.
Okay; what’s going on? Why are they stopping me from going in?
“B…But, I’m so pressed right now. Can you find me an alternative?” I grumbled and immediately, someone I knew came up.
“Hey, Bethel;” he called, surprised.
He was a friend of my mum.
“Good evening, sir” I greeted with a perfunctory smile.
I really need to wee.
“Good evening dear. How’re you doing? Uh…what’s going on?” He asked and I couldn’t tell which to reply first.
“I’m trying to make use of the restroom, but they’re not letting me in” I said with a pained look and he looked at the securities.
“Why’s that? Is something wrong?” He asked.
“Sir, Ryan’s in there and he instructed us not to let anyone in” one of the grumpy men replied.
Did I just hear correctly?
Ryan’s in the restroom???
“Oh!” He mouthed and paused.
“Well, she can still make use of it. It isn’t like she’s gonna bump into the room he’s using or something. Just be careful; Bethel; okay?”
I…I don’t think I can go in.
“He had gone left. So, I think you should go right” one of the guards said, looking at me.
Oh, my God!
They’re really letting me in.
I was tempted to say ‘I’ll wait’,
But I was so pressed and needed to wee.
What do I do?
“Come on, Bethel. Or do you wanna wait?’ Mum’s friend asked and I looked at him, speechless.
Then, I shook my head and started walking in. Oh, God! I suddenly feel so nervous.
Ryan’s in here?
What if he sees me?
Like…We get to meet or something?
I kept counting my steps as I walked into the big room which looked like a sitting room and then I got to a passage with a parting.
Hold on; which way did the guard ask me to go out again?
Oh, God! I’ve forgotten.
I looked left and right and took the left passage.
I walked steadily, looking at the different rooms which lined up.
I tried opening the first one, but it was locked.
I went over to the second one, still locked.
Then, I got to the third one and noticed it was open.
But just when I was about opening it, I suddenly heard strange voices from the fourth room.
What’s going on there?
I left the third door and walked silently to the fourth.
The voices became clear. Was someone in?
Wait! Could this be the passage Ryan had taken?
I placed my ear on the door and…
Oh, my God!!!
What the hell?
They were moans…sexual moans.
I could clear hear the lady’s voice:
F**k me harder…
I gasped and furrowed my brows in surprise.
Oh, my God! Was this for real?
I shook my head and placed my ear on the door again. I could only hear the lady’s voice. Ryan wasn’t even moaning.
Oh, my! Was he really there? So the rumours were true? He’s really a flirt?
I sighed and stared at the door.
This is so unbelievable.
I can’t believe Ryan’s actually making out with a lady in the restroom.
I shook my head in bewilderment and went over to the next door which was a bit far from Ryan’s.
I got in and quickly sat on the seat, realising all the liquid.
Gosh! This feels so good.
I placed my chin on my palm and reminisced what I just heard. It was still shocking to me.
That was the first time I had been that close to people making out and I just couldn’t believe it.
So; the almighty Ryan was having a good time with a lady in the restroom? No wonder he told the guards not to let anyone in.
I can’t wait to tell Nicole about this.
I wonder who that lady is. She must feel like the luckiest girl on earth right now.
After spending a long time on the toilet seat cogitating, I stood up and looked around for some water, but couldn’t find any. I used the one connected to the toilet to flush.
Then, I went out of the room and decided to look around for the washbasin.
I needed to wash my hand.
I glanced at “Ryan’s” room and wondered if they were still in there.
I didn’t go to check but just went ahead to look for the washbasin.
Luckily, I found one around the corner and I kept my bag on the table and tuned on the water.
There was a big mirror in front of it and as I washed my hands, I looked at myself in the mirror and stupidly smiled.
I looked down at the water and was about turning it off when a thin light shun pass me from the mirror.
What light was that? It seemed to be reflections from jewelries.
I lifted my head to the mirror and I swear, for the first time in my life, I felt my heart skip.
I quickly turned in a flash and found him standing and staring at me from a distance. He was leaning against the wall.
His dark eyes bored into mine and that was when I realised the light I had seen was from the pure gold jewelries he was putting on.
Oh, my God!
My throat suddenly went dry. Why am I this nervous?
I’m…I’m standing in front of Ryan Winthorp!
I was so speechless and didn’t even know what to say or do; to move or stand?
“What’re you doing here?” He finally asked in a cold voice, staring vacuously.
“I thought I ordered the guards not to let anyone in?”
Married To Mr Popular Episode 9
I swear, I never thought I could be this nervous in my entire life.
I felt my heart thumping as I stared into his face. Oh, my gee! Is he this handsome?
I mean, this was the first time I was having such a close view of his face and oh, my! He looks heavenly gorgeous – far more than he appeared on TV and magazines.
Gosh! No wonder all the ladies were crazy over him.
He had this dark pretty – sexy eyes and little pink soft looking lips and the gold ring on his ear glittered.
He was putting on a red long sleeve, but the little part of his hand that I saw was covered in tattoos.
Wow! So Ryan Winthrop’s for real?
We kept staring at each other and I actually forgot he asked a question. What?
I mean, I can’t answer such question.
I quickly turned back to the running water and turned it off. I almost forgot about it.
I’m really sorry nervous right now.
I took my bag from the table without looking into the mirror and turned around to leave. Ryan was still standing there, staring at me.
I wonder what he must be thinking.
I swallowed hard and started walking to the exit, approaching where Ryan was. I fixed my gaze on the floor as I didn’t want to stare at him
But when I got to where he was, unfortunately and stupidly, my bag fell from my hand to the floor next to his feet, but I couldn’t tell if it touched him or not.
Oh, my God!
“Geez! Are you blind?” He muttered.
“I’m sorry” I said immediately as I dropped to a crouch to pick them up.
Hold on; did he just say I was blind? What the heck? Do I look blind to him?
I put the items that had fallen off back in the bag and stood up.
My eyes ran into his in a flash as we stood close to each other.
Then, I started walking away but suddenly stopped and turned back to look at him.
“And just so you know, I’m not actually blind” I told him and walked away.
Geez! I couldn’t let that slide.
I walked out the entrance and the guards by the door stared at me like I was some sort of movie
I went back to my seat and took in a deep breath as I sat.
Gosh! I still can’t believe the encounter I just had with the world’s famous Ryan. It’s incredible.
I remembered his pretty dark eyes as they stared into mine. His soft pink lips as they spoke to me:
“Are you blind?”
Why did he have to ask me such question?.maybe the reply I gave suited him best.
I exhaled and tucked my hair behind my ear. The whole image kept replaying in my head.
Gosh! I need to stop this.
I looked around and saw him walking out of the room, tracing his steps.
He walked so stylishly like a king and I kept staring at him until he got to a table where three other boys sat.
Oh! I know one of the boys from there.
Of course! He was also an artiste and his stage name was masked.
Ryan sat with them and took a drink from the table and they started communicating but Ryan wasn’t talking much. One of the boys from there was actually smoking.
Fortunately, where they were seated was far from me and there was no way Ryan could see me.
There was still a bottle of wine on my table and I decanted some into a glass cup and drank from it. Just then, a young looking boy came up and sat next to me.
What the heck?
“Hi” he said with a smile as he stared into my face.
I scoffed and looked away.
“Hey wats up?” He said again and I shook my head.
“I’m fine. Do I look like someone with a problem?” I asked and he laughed.
“Wow! Chill okay? By the way, I’m Frank and you?” He said as he stretched out his hand for a handshake.
“I don’t think my name is of any concern to you’ I replied with a derogatory stare, ignoring the handshake.
Well, I get a lot of these lately and I’m tryna learn how to handle them.
He laughed again and brought down his hand.
“Okay then. I guess I’ll just call you pretty. So, how’re you?” He asked and I scoffed.
“Isn’t that the same thing as wats up?” I replied and he chuckled.
“Wow! I must say you’re hot. Keep it cool okay? Anyway, I just saw you from a distance and really really admired you. Can we be friends?”
I was looking ahead and saw mum and Ryan’s mum walking together.
Hah! Finally they’re done with whatever it is they’ve been doing. It’s been ages now.
“Hey pretty” boy next to me called.
“Hi. I’m interested, okay? So just let me be” I replied tiredly and looked at mum.
Ryan’s mum stopped at Ryan’s table while mum started proceeding to where I was. She’d probably spotted me already.
“Okay. Can I have your digits?” The annoying jerk said and I rolled my eyes.
Just wait till my mum gets here.
I looked at Ryan’s mum as she took him from the table and stood at a distance with him, talking
Was she telling him? I wonder if she knows he’s a deep soaked player.
She used her palm to brush his hair as she talked to him, acting like he was a baby.
Hm. Guess the rumours are true. She really loves and pampers him a lot.
“Hey” the boy beside me called and just then, mum arrived at our table.
“Mum” I called, kinda sounding relived.
She remained standing and looked at the boy.
“And who re you?” She asked and I turned to look at him.
The expression on his face was funny.
“Uh…no one ma’am” he replied and quickly left.
Mum glared at him as he left and took her eyes back to me.
“Come with me, Bethel; let’s say hi to Ryan” she said and started walking away and I didn’t realise I was almost laughing.
Hold on; is it funny? I mean, what did she just say? Say hi to who???
“Mum?’ I called but she didn’t turn to look at me.
Oh, my God! What the heck? Why does she want me to see Ryan? I mean; like what the heck?
She was already far from me and I knew I’d be in trouble if I didn’t go along with her.
I nervously grabbed my bag from the table and started scuttling after her.
I caught up with her and we got to where Ryan was.
Oh, my God! I’m meeting Ryan again.
You might probably be wondering why I’m so nervous. But trust me, when you get to meet a god-like celebrity, you’ll understand how it feels.
“Bethel” Ryan’s mum called as we stood in front of them.
Ryan was now focusing his eyes on me.
“Hey Ryan” mum called with a light smile.
“Good evening ma’am” he greeted her and took his eyes from me.
“Um…Ryan, I want you to meet Bethel. And Bethel, please meet my son” his mum said happily and I became really really nervous.
I couldn’t help but fiddle with my bag and wondered if I were to say hi to him. But we’ve met already.
He didn’t say a word either and his mum looked at him and looked at his hand and I understood she was tryna tell him to shake me. But he ignored.
“Yeah…We’ve met before” was what he could say as he inserted his both hands into his trouser pockets.
“Really? You’ve met before?” His mum asked and looked at me, surprised.
“in an inconvenient place” he replied with a scoff and just then, a call came into his phone and he brought it out from his back pocket.
Wow! You wouldn’t believe the type of phone he was holding.
“Guess we’re done here? Excuse me” he said brusquely and walked away.
His mum turned back to look at him and with the look on her face, it was obvious she was abashed by her son’s attitude.
“Um…hope you don’t mind, Bethel? You should know how boys are sometimes” she said and I just smiled.
“Okay Becky, we’ll be on our way now’ mum said
“Oh! Of course. See you tomorrow” she replied and they gave each other a parting hug and I left with mum.
I followed mum to the car and she took off .
“Have you met with Ryan before?” She asked as we got on the road
“Yeah – in the restroom” I replied with an eye roll and she flinched.
“Restroom?” She asked and I nodded.
“Well, it was today at the party. I had been pressed and needed to make use of the restroom and coincidentally, when I got there, I found him there as well.” I replied.
“Did you guys speak to each other?” She asked.
“Well…not really. My bag had mistakenly slipped from my hand and almost hit him and he asked if I was blind” I replied and she scoffed.
“Wow! Really?” She asked and I just shrugged
She didn’t say any other thing throughout the drive until we got home.
I ate and showered and laid on the bed to sleep.
Married To Mr Popular Episode 10
When I woke up the next morning, I couldn’t find mum at home as she had already left for work. Perfect!
I followed my normal morning routine – took my bath, ate and left for school.
I got to class and met Nicole there already. I wonder If I can ever beat her to it. She comes too early.
“Hello princess’ she teased as I sat next to her.
“Hi” I replied with an eye roll and she laughed.
“I’ve been waiting the entire day for you, B. So tell me, how was…”
“You wouldn’t believe what happened” I caught her off, knowing what she wanted to say.
Her eyes beamed immediately.
“Oh, my gee! Bethel, spill it out already” she said curiously and I smiled.
“Well, first of all, I caught him making out with a lady in the restroom” I said and she gasped and dilated her eyes.
“What???” She shrieked.
“Making out…you mean they were having s3x?”
“What else does making out mean?” I asked and she gasped again.
“Oh, my God, Bethel! Are you kidding me? And…hold on; did you say you caught them? Like…you really?”
“Gosh! Of course not. I only heard them moaning from the room.” I replied irritable and she sighed
“Better. You’re too young to see such view” she said and I glared at her and she laughed.
“But this is really incredible. Hold on, did he see you?” She asked.
“Yeah…when he was done with the lady. I had wee and Was washing my hands when he came up and stood behind me” I replied and she gasped and held my hand.
“Oh, my God! You saw him? He…He saw you?” She bumbled and I huffed and released my hand from hers.
‘Stop being so dramatic, Nicole. I mean, he asked why I was there because he had ordered the guards at the entrance not to let anyone in. Gosh! That guy’s so rude. I felt like smacking him in the face. You won’t believe what he told me. My bag had slipped from my hand and almost hit him and he asked if I was blind.” I said laothfully and she gasped.
“Oh, my gosh! He did?” She shrieked.
“Yes. And it was so annoying. Well, I told him I wasn’t blind”.
“What? Bethel, you did? You spoke back at him?”
“Of course. He’s lucky I even apologised in the first place. Seriously Nicole, he’s too rude and grumpy. I wonder how his friends cope with him.
“Mum had taken me later on to say yo hi to him when we were about leaving and you wouldn’t believe the way he snubbed me. He completely lacks manners. Even his mum had prodded hin to give me a handshake, but he ignored her. He’s such a spoilt dumb-ass brat” I said angrily and Nicole started laughing.
“Oh, my God! Bethel, you’re so funny. You’re acting like the whole thing happened this morning. I can’t you’re talking about the world’s famous Ryan in such manner.
“Anyway, I’ve always heard of how rude he was. I just never knew It was to this extent. But tell me; how does he look? I mean, is he really as cute as he looks on TV and on stage?’ She asked and I rolled my eyes.
“Well, when it comes to good looks; he’s the top. I don’t think I’ve seen someone as cute as he is” I replied and she shrieked and covered her mouth with her palm.
“Oh, Bethel! You’re making me get goose bumps. I can’t imagine it”
“Yeah, he’s handsome and all that; but his looks is the exact opposite of his attitude. No wonder they say beauty lies in the heart”.
The ABC girls didn’t show up in school that day and it kind of puzzled me. Well, it was better that way.
We received the morning classes and during lunch time, Nicole and I ate together in the cafe and after a few more hours, the school finally came to a close.
“How’s Jackson?” Nicole suddenly asked as we walked out together.
I sighed and tucked my hair behind my ear.
“He’s fine” I said perfunctorily.
I need to get ready for my date with him.
“Is everything okay with you guys? I mean, you sound…”
“Im fine Nicole. I know you’re just trying to look for blames to put on hold’ I cut her off and she chuckled.
“Well, you’re wrong Bethel. I’m just being concerned. I don’t want my best friend to fall into the wrong hands” she said and I just rolled my eyes.
“Hold on; isn’t that your mum?” She asked and I stopped walking as I also caught a sight of her.
What? Mum? What the hell’s she doing here?
She was standing by her black jeep, looking around and finally, she saw me and started walking towards me.
What’s going on? What’s she doing here?
“Wow! I must admit bethel; this mother of yours is really something else. She’s so pretty and hot” Nicole said but none of it interested me as just kept pondering over mum’s unheralded appearance in my school.
“Good evening ma’am” Nocole greeted with a little bow when she got to where we were.
“Good evening” mum replied and turned to me.
“How’re you Bethel?” She asked with a smile, getting me more confused.
“Uh…I’m…I’m fine. Good evening’ I stuttered helplessly.
“Come on; I came to pick you up” she said and held my hand and started walking with me to the car.
I turned and looked at Nicole and she just shrugged and waved at me.
“Hold on, mum; did you just say you came to pick me up from school?” I asked as we both sat next to each other in the jeep..
She chuckled. I can’t remember the last time she ever did something like that – coming to pick me up from school.
I mean – mum???
“I’ve got great news, Bethel; great news! And I just couldn’t wait for you to get home before spilling it out’ she said excitedly and I just watched in mere bewilderment
“Wh…What news?” I asked curiously and she laughed.
“Wait till we get home” she replied and scorched off.
So many thoughts kept dancing through my head as I thought about mum’s uncanny attitude. What news could she possibly have to tell me that’d make her come all the way to school to pick me up? I can’t believe she even laughed. I mean, I can’t remember the last time mum laughed with me.
She was so excited during the drive and it only increased my curiosity.
Finally; we got home and I felt so relived cause I couldn’t wait to hear the “great news’
We stepped down from the car and went into the sitting room together and I sat down and awaited her to speak up.
“Bethel” she called ecstatically as she sat in front of me.
“I’m listening, mum”.
She paused and giggled.
“Do you remember few days ago when I had told you I was working on something important?” She asked and I tried to think.
“Y…Yeah, I do” I replied and she continued.
“Well, guess what? It’s finally been accomplished. And guess what it is” she enthused and I scoffed.
“What is it; mum?’ I asked; not interested in guessing.
“Come on; just guess” she said but I kept mute and she laughed.
Oh, God! I can’t believe mum’s actually the one laughing
“Okay fine; I’ll tell you. Besides, I’m sure you won’t be able to guess it right” she paused and cleared her throat a bit.
“This Saturday” she said.
“You’ll be getting married to Ryan”.
