“Okay okay what do you want?”

“Okay..can you go now?I’ll think about it”
“Better be fast in thinking unless you will be locked up in jail for rape!” She bkuntly said planting a kiss on me and left
“God..why me? Why now?”
I was lost in thought when i heard a car engine coming inside the compound..i peeped and saw it was mum

“Haha mum come in” she came in we were at the living room later and she kept on staring at me
“My tall and handsome”

“Why didn’t you come home since you miss him ehn”
“Haha okay let me get you something to drink” i was about going when mum called me back

“Oya do something”

Episode 12
“I guess this won’t work out between I and Queeneth” i said to myself
“I need to be popular and i don’t need gold diggers like Queeneth ruining it for me”
About 3 hours later when i was preparing to go to the shopping mall to get a nice outfit and a ring for the upcoming birthday party, i got there and went straight to the cashier’s table.. She welcomed me well..she was beautiful and was a description of “She carry am”.. She was fully endowed with a set of white tooth..i guess she was interested in me too..i was ready to shoot my shots but i remembered how reserved i should be..i shouldn’t let me guard down
” Hi uhmm am here to pick a ring for my fiancée” her face melted immediately
“Hello.. We have beautiful made rings just for you!”
“Okay..” I looked on top of the table and saw lots of admiring rings..I picked one worth of 10million
“Why i picked it was because of the press, bloggers..i don’t wanna to give the senator’s daughter a cheap ring at least”
The lady looked at me once more and smiled seductively..i understood the language, i asked her for the account number which i will need to transfer the money.. She gave me and i transferred it..she gave me a receipt with a little paper under the receipt.. I walked through the door and got into my car
It read;
“Call me by 11pm..08154378***…i admire your gentleness”
I just laughed
Then i drove off,On getting to my house i saw Queeneth and mum discussing..Queeneth’s eyes were red and mum held her hands as they sat in the living room
“What are you doing here?I told you not to come here!” She quickly wiped her tears
“Darlington please understand”
“Understand what that you are here crying to my mum?!”
“Darlington you must marry her,you got her pregnant!” Mum fired
“But mummy”
“Don’t mummy me..Just prepare to take her to the alter!!” Mum said leaving the living room in anger
“Gosh!! Please just go!”
Queeneth stared at me with tears molded up in her eyes
