Two months marriage with a beast
(I love you)
I was stunned on reading those three letters. Does that mean the three friends want to have me as wive.
I do not even think I’m ready to be somebody’s wive now. I wanna live a simple life devoid of problems .
I sunk to the bed thinking of where to start my life when my phone suddenly rang. Oh! It’s the beast.
“Hello , Loveth. Have you read my letter?”
“What did you say? Will you come back to my house?”
“To live like a slave for how many months again or for how many years?”
“Loveth,I’m so sorry for behaving so cruel to you. I know I’ve behaved like a beast…but I’m a changed somebody now , please come home ”
“Home? It’s a two months contract , please forget about it ”
“Please ‘ He said but I hung up.
What’s wrong with him? You do not value me for the two months I spent with you. You treated me like I wasn’t a human and now you want me to go to that same house.
Over my dead body.
Following morning. Around 12PM.
I dressed my best and walked out of the hotel. John had booked an appointment with me and I have conceded.
I took a cab to where we are to meet. It’s a beautiful restaurant.
He was glad to see me and stood for me to sit.
I was honored and said ” thanks”
“Welcome dear , I was scared or maybe nervous when I called to request from you if you will be available to see me today. You can’t imagine how glad I was when you concurred”
“How have you being?”
“Fine , you?”
“Fine ” He replied and ordered for food.
“Erm…I must say that you suddenly look prettier, ao beautiful and adoring ” He said.
“I believed you have read my letter , what do you say about it?”
“Well, I’m not interested in being in any relationship for now ”
“Oh!” He exhaled. ” I won’t rush you actually but I wanna ask, can you come and live with me , in the newly house I will be buying soon?”
“Oh no! Never. I can’t live under any man as I am”
“Dear , not everyone is like the beast , just try me ”
He nodded and we began to eat.
“I guess I should just let it out that I love you” He said not looking at my face.
I didn’t reply instead I continued eating.
We heard laughter at of two men behind us and on turning to have a glimpse of who they were; it turns out to be Tucker and James.
