MrArrogant(Ând the strânge maidën)
This story is officially written By: Faith Lucky.
I left the room, going out to take some air by the pool side.
Well, its really boring not having siblings, right? Being the only spoilt child.
I didn’t spot mum on my way out of the house and when I’d gotten outside, I met someone else.
It seemed she was just arriving because the lights from her car were still on.
“Xavier!!!” She called in happiness and ran into my arms.
Well, she’s the only lady who does that – gets to be this free with me.
We’ve been friends since we were kids. Fortunately for her.
“Hey; what’s up?” I cooed as we disentangled from the hug and I stroke her hair.
I actually wasn’t surprised she’d come unexpected. I mean…its a normal thing for her.
“I’m fine. Are you busy?” She asked.
“Um…of course, not. I was actually on my way to get some air by the pool side”.
“Oh! Perfect. Since you’re less busy, you’re coming with me then. There’s this amazing place I’d visited this evening and I bet you’d love it. My friends are still there and I just rushed over to get you….”
As she spoke, I took out time to scrutinize her outfit.
A bum shot and crop top with a pretty sandals.
Well, Chelsea has always been a lover of fashion.
“Are you listening to me at all?” She asked and hit me slightly on the chest.
“Of course, doll. I’ll just get changed” I rolled my eyes and started walking into the house and she giggled.
She followed me in and getting to the sitting room, a maid almost spilled dirt on her.
“hey, you oaf….are you blind?” She asked as the mop stick dropped close to her feet.
“Oh my! I’m so sorry ma’am. Please, forgive me” the young lady apologized immediately, keeping her head bowed.
‘You should be sorry for your pathetic mum” Chelsea replied blatantly with an eye roll and I scoffed as she followed me to the room.
Well, If I’m Mr Arrogant, Chelsea’s Mrs Arrogant.
She followed me to the room and waited for me to dress up.
Yeah – we’re actually that close that we play in each other’s rooms.
I changed in the bathroom – of course.
Even if I was going to get some peanuts down the street, I still make sure I look good.
I brushed my hair, fix a glittering ring on my right ear, wore my gold chain and after that, Chelsea and I left the room.
A Different Planet….
“Hera, you can’t possibly do this. You need to say the truth. Aletheia!!” I said the last part in our dialect as I lamented in front of her.
Throughout my stay with her, I’d never seen this hardness in her.
“Hera, are you really going to stand by and watch me get punished for your crimes? Adikos, Hera? Adikos!!”
“I’m sorry, Delaney. But my mother would be very mad at me if she gets to know I did it. I’m sorry you need to face this. Please, forgive me” she said with a little remorse which only increased my frustration.
“Really?” I scoffed.
“Your mother is the queen, Hera. And you’re her only child. She treasures you a lot. If you confess to your sins, I’m sure your punishment will be minimal” I tried persuading her, but she refused.
“No! I’ve disappointed her a lot already and just two days ago, I’d promised I wouldn’t do anything to displease her again.
“You know I need a favor from her. I told you about it, right? And if she finds out I committed this offense, she’ll definitely be mad at me and wouldn’t grant my request – ever.
“Understand with me, Delaney. Please. The highest she can do to you is give you some strokes and it’ll be over…”
“You really want me to get beaten because of you?” I cut her off with a scoff.
“You made the mistake, Hera. Why should I be the one to get punished for it? You know how much your mother hates me. She’ll definitely punish me unreasonably for this. Don’t make me pass through this please” I begged and she sighed and faced the exit.
“I’m sorry, Delaney. But I can’t” she mumbled and walked away.
“Hera!” I called after her, but she didn’t bother to look at me and completely left.
I whimpered and sat helplessly on the floor.
How could Hera do this to me?
I’ve been taking the blames for her in other cases, but this…I simply can’t. I’ll be punished severally for it. How could she betray me?
My name is Delaney and I’m one of the maidens in Marazona – also known as the Land Of Beauty.
We only have females around her and I don’t think any other gender exists.
The story behind the beautiful planet is still a mystery. But according to the wise teachers, originally, they’d been mingling in a different place. But there was a war and majority of them ran over here to start a new life. That’s how Marazona began.
We’re blessed with extra ordinary beauty, special powers, anti ageing – although, I know I’m still a young lady.
But sometimes, i wonder how we came about. How were we created?
Did our mothers just suddenly got fertile on their own and gave birth to us?
Princess Hera and I grew up as childhood friends and we were pretty good even if her mother the Queen has always been against our relationship.
I still don’t get it, but she’s never liked me and sometimes, I wonder if it’s because I had no mother.
Well, I’ve never set my eyes on my mother and don’t even know if I have one.
Each time I had fun with Hera, the Queen always felt bittered and has made many attempts to restrict Hera from seeing me.
Hera and I have been really good friends, but now, I don’t get what’s wrong with her.
She committed an offense and framed me for it, telling me she’s scared to face her mother’s consequences.
But I was also scared to face the Queen’s anger because she hates me just much.
And now, I’m kept in a cell, awaiting the Queen’s judgment tomorrow.
