I removed my lips from Delaney’s as soon as she coughed out water.
She weakly opened her eyes and stared intently at me, looking rather confused.
I stood up and helped her seat up.
“What happened to me? Why am I drenched?” She asked as she stared at her wet clothes.
She was all soaked and her hair was plastered all over face, making her look like one of those possessed people in movies.
“Well, you dumbly fell into the pool.” I said sarcastically and rolled my eyes at her.
“Huh? I didn’t fall into the pool myself. Someone pushed me.” She creased her eyebrows.
“Wait, what? Someone pushed you?” I asked and scoffed.
“Yes. But I couldn’t see the persons face. The persons face was covered.” She groaned lightly.
“That’s unbelievable. It’s just your imagination. You fell into the pool and you assumed someone pushed you.” I huffed.
“I’m not assuming, I’m very sure. I was pushed into the swimming pool.” She defended.
“Okay. But who would want to push you into the pool?” I asked.
“I know you wouldn’t believe me, so just forget about it.” She snorted.
“Get up, let’s get you dried up else, you’d catch a cold.” I offered nicely and stretched out my hand for her to use as support to stand up.
“Thank you.” She smiled.
“Thank you buddy.” I told Rio as the three of us walked towards the car.
“It’s fine dude. I just couldn’t watch her drown.” He shrugged and patted my shoulder.
“Thank you Rio, you tried to save me even when you don’t know her to how to swim. Seriously, I’m grateful.” Delaney smiled appreciatively.
“It’s fine Delaney. You’re like a family to Xavier and Xavier is my buddy, so it’s nothing.” Rio laughed lightly.
We got into the car and the chaffeur drove off.
“Cheers girls for a job well done!” I squealed happily and raised my my wine glass up.
“Cheers!” They chorused with smiles on their faces and we clicked our glasses together.
“Oh my goodness Brielle.” Brianna giggled excitedly and drank from her wine.
“Yeah, our plans worked and I’m sure she’d probably have drown by now, all thanks to Jessica for carrying out the plan.” I giggled and drank from my wine glass and smacked my lips together.
“We’re going to check out what happened few minutes from now. Let’s see if her stomach is already bloated because she drank too much water to death.” Blair laughed.
We all laughed and poured wine in our glasses again.
“But seriously Brielle, I’ve been wanting to ask you this question since the very day you decided to hurt Delaney.” Blair started, looking all serious.
I dropped my wine glass and paid full attention to her.
“What is it Blair?” I asked.
“Why did you ever think of harming Delaney because of Xavier? What about Chelsea, is she not a threat to you in getting Xavier? Why didn’t you think of hurting Chelsea but Delaney?” Blair asked and exhaled.
“Nice question Blair. An intelligent question.” I beamed.
“You see, I’m still thinking of a right plan and the right time to attack Chelsea.
I have to remove the weaker one, which is Delaney and plan on hurting the stronger one, which is Chelsea and think of a good plan to harm her which is gonna be really tough.
I’m just excising patience and thinking of how to eliminate her and have Xavier for myself.
I want to get rid of the weak ones. So, if Delaney’s out of my way, I’ll fully focus on getting rid of Chelsea.” I grinned proudly.
“Wow Brielle, you never told us about this idea of yours.” Brianna chuckled.
“I’m smart right? I know.” I giggled and winked at them.
“I definitely get your point. You’re always so smart.” Blair smiled and nudged my arm playfully.
We raised our glasses up and clicked it.
I chopped the vegetables while mom washed the the meats and fish.
“So mom?” I called calmly, still chopping on the vegetables.
“Hum?” She answered, her attention on the meats and fish she’s washing.
“Mom? I have a question to ask.” I gulped nervously and stopped chopping the vegetables and turned to stare at her.
“What is it Alicia? You’re looking all serious.” Mom sighed and rinsed her hands.
I brought out the picture from my pocket, looking so nervous.
“I found this in your drawer when I was cleaning it up this morning.” I gulped nervously and handed over the picture to her.
Her face dropped immediately and her face was devoid of emotion.
Her hands shook as she stared at the picture. A tear slipped down from her eye and landed on the picture but she was quick to wipe it away.
She had a stern look and dropped the picture on the counter.
“Who’s that man mom? Is he my father?” I asked the question that has been on my mind since I saw the picture.
I’ve been restless and been thinking endlessly.
“What kind of a question is that?” Mom snapped and glared at me.
“It’s just a question mom. And mom, is he not Chelsea’s dad; the man we bumped into at the mall the other day?” I further asked.
“Stop asking me questions Alicia! That guy you saw in that picture was a close friend of mine and nothing more.
And when the time comes, I’ll tell you about it.” She said and walked out of the kitchen.
“Finish the cooking!” She yelled, so I’ll be able to hear her.
What if Chelsea’s father is my father too?
Alicia’s mom pov
Tears rolled down my cheeks uncontrollably as I stared at the picture.
The pains I thought might have gone years ago were still there in my heart. It resurfaced and this time, more painfully.
We were a happy couple. We were happy together but everything ended within the twinkle of an eye.
We were so much in love with each other and we were happy together.
I didn’t want to believe he’s never going to be mine but as time went on, I knew that really, we were never going to end up together.
I fell for his sweet-talks and I loved him with everything I’ve got but what at the end, what did he do to me?
He left me shattered and heartbroken.
I sobbed quietly and held the picture close to my chest.
“Alicia, I’ll be stepping out for a while. I’ll be back very soon.” I told Alicia, clutching my handbag.
“Okay mom, do take care.” Alicia smiled and pecked my cheeks.
“Alright, bye.” I kissed her hair and made for the door.
We waved at each other while I walked out of the sitting room and closed the door.
I bought just few items in the grocery store and also bought some drugs for headache; since the previous day after crying my eyes out, I’ve had a pounding headache which refused to go.
I don’t want to fall sick– definitely not now or later.
As I stood at the bus stop waiting for the next bus, a car suddenly drove past me but it came back and stopped in front of me.
I stared at the car and the tinted windows were rolled down and I got a clearer view of the person.
“Clarissa?” The woman called and I stared intently at her.
Wait, she does look familiar.
“Don’t you know me Clarissa?” She asked and alighted from her car.
She removed her sunshade and walked closer to me.
She had a huge smile on her face.
Who knows who Alicia’s mom saw? 🤷
