Married To Mr Popular (Rude and grumpy) Episode 28
(Rude and grumpy)
By: Faith Lucky.
“I want us to have…”
I suddenly paused on my words.
Am I blatantly going to ask a guy for s3x in such manner?
What the heck? How can I do such a thing?
Besides, I’m not even ready for s3x yet.
I looked at Ryan and he was staring at me curiously.
“I um…Sorry, I just wanted to thank you for honoring my request and showing up in my school. It really meant a lot to me. Thanks” I said nervously, hoping I sounded convincing enough.
He scoffed and didn’t say a word for a while and I wondered why he scoffed.
“Is that it?” He asked and I nodded.
Hold on; why’s he asking?
“Well…you’re welcome” he replied and walked away, leaving the room.
As soon as he left, I turned and faced the door.
Oh, Bethel! That was so dramatic.
Thank goodness I was able to stop myself before spilling such nonsense.
I took in a deep breath and sat on the bed.
Now – mum.
How do I face her? Am I really gonna lie to her?
Well, of course, I’d have to lie to her. I seriously can’t do what she wants. I just pray she doesn’t suspect me.
I went into the bathroom and showered and after which, I laid on the bed to get some sleep.
I woke up, feeling a little perturbed.
As usual, Ryan wasn’t on the bed when I woke up. I wonder why I never find him on bed.
I got into the bathroom and took my bath and after which, I wore on my uniforms and got ready for school.
I took my bag and left the room, headed for the dining.
On my way downstairs, I passed through a room which had it’s door open. And I discovered it was Bonnie’s room.
She was on a call and although I didn’t really stop to listen, I just got attracted by a line I heard.
“Yes. I want a clean job. I want it done properly” I heard her say on the phone as I walked pass the room.
“What job is she talking about?” I thought as I got to the stairs.
Why am I even thinking about it? It could be anything.
I got to the dining and met the rest of the family there as usual – already having breakfast.
“Bethel” Ryan’s mum called when she saw me.
“Good morning ma’am” I smiled and took a seat.
“Oh, Bethel;don’t you think you should start calling me mum?” She asked and I noticed Ryan scoffed.
Yeah – whatever.
“Uh…Okay ma’am. I’ll try” I replied and awaited the maids to serve my meal.
Hm. Calling her mum.
Well, I guess I’m gonna have to get used to it.
“Ryan” Mr Winthrop called after a brief silence.
I was already eating by now.
“I’m glad you’re home. But I really don’t appreciate what happened between you and your brother. It’s just not right. You two are blood. You’re supposed to be partners – not enemies!” He quarried and paused.
“I think you need to patch things up. Royce, why don’t you apologize to your brother?”,he asked and the jerk laughed – grimly.
“Thats not happening” he blurted.
“And I don’t need his worthless apology” Ryan also said angrily.
“Enough of these madness!”, Mr Winthrop cut in.
“Do you really have to fight all the time? The reason I wanted us to live together in this mansion is so we could become amicable and live as one big family. But I don’t know why you all keep making my efforts go down the drain”.
“Well, I wasn’t the one who slept with so many women” Judy muttered – although I’m not sure they could hear her.
Immediately, Ryan stood up.
“Ryan…”,his mom called.
“I just lost my appetite” he cut her off and walked away.
Why does he get so angry easily?
And with that, the dining became dead silent and I hurried up my meal and left for school.
School had been as boring as hell as all we did was receive lectures and all that.
The only fun moment was lunch time as surprisingly, Kyle had offered we had lunch together and I agreed.
Nicole couldn’t stop gibbering about it.
Finally, the school came to an end and as usual, Nicole accompanied me to where my driver was waiting for me.
“So, you’ll be going to marriage classes today, right?” She asked along the way.
“Yeah” I mumbled a reply.
“So, what’s it like, Bethel? Is it fun? Do they teach you guys about s3x?” She asked and I gasped
“Nicole!” I called and she laughed.
“Come on B; stop being childish. You should be pregnant by now” she teased and I tweaked her ear.
“Why don’t you get pregnant first, huh?” I asked as she squeaked in pains.
“Ah! I’m sorry, Bethel. Come on” she winced and I let go of her ear.
Immediately, my phone started ringing and I checked and discovered it was mum.
“Hmm. Mummy’s girl” Nicole said as she had a peep at the screen.
I sighed and picked it up.
“Hi mum” I said nervously.
“Bethel, where are you?” She asked, sounding calm.
“I’m…on my way home”.
“Good. I want you to come over to the house immediately. Don’t keep me waiting”, she said and ended the call.
“What is it?” Nicole asked immediately and I tucked my hair behind my ear – feeling so nervous.
“She wants me to see her at home” I replied carewornly.
“Oh! Okay then. We’ll talk on phone. Bye” she said with a wave.
“Bye” I waved at her and she left, going to meet her own ride.
I told my driver where to take me and as I sat in the backseat, I couldn’t help but panic.
What if I lie to her and she finds out? What Will she do to me?
But why does mum want me to sleep with Ryan? What’s her aim?
The drive was long and to be sincere, I wish it never had to end. But unfortunately, it did and I had to face mum.
I came out of the van and walked somberly into the house. And there I found her in the sitting room, sitting with her legs crossed and watching a movie.
“Um…hi” I said perfunctorily as I walked and stood in front of her.
“You’re here. How was school today?” She asked and reached for a glass of wine on the table.
“It was fine. I just…feel really stressed out” I replied and took a seat adjacent to hers.
“There’s some food in the warmer. I made your favorite” she smiled.
“Um…thanks. But, I’m kind of in a hurry, mum. You know, Ryan and I attend marriage classes and I’m running pretty late already” I replied and she nods.
“Anyway, talking about Ryan” she paused and sipped from her glass.
“How was it? Did you do what I asked you to do with him last night?” She asked and I twitched but tried not to show it.
“Yes…of course” I replied lowly, staring at the floor.
“Hm” she mumbled.
“Well, I need to confirm it” she said.
I scoffed and looked at her.
“Confirm what?” I pondered, my heart beating like a party drum.
“Confirm if it really happened or not. Go on and lie on the couch” she replied and pointed to the three seaters chair in the room.
