They left us and we went upstairs, take our shower and then came down stairs for dinner, we finished eating and went back upstairs, when we entered her room then I decided to ask her about her parent because I haven’t seen not even her elder brother and she has refuse to tell me
Me: what about your parent and your brother, I haven’t seen them since I came
Victoria: don’t worry my bother will soon come back and as for my parent, they travelled and they won’t be back the end of this month, don’t worry you will soon meet them
Me: ok o
Victoria’s room is not that big as mind but is beautiful and I love it , as we were gisting with our friend on group chat we heard a knock on the door
Victoria: please come in
The person entered the room I guess is Victoria’s brother because they look alike, he is so handsome, tall and he is fair in complexion
Victoria: wao big bro, whatsup?
Daniel: am cool and you
Victoria: am fine as you can see, big bro meet my friend Loretta, Loretta meet my elder brother Daniel
I got up from the bed walk toward him and we shake hands
Me: nice meeting you
Daniel: the pleasure is mind, you are such a beautiful damsel and I hope you won’t go very soon because I need to know you more
He was still holding my hand while talking to me even when I tried to free my hand from him, he hold me tight then his sister came and separate our hands
Victoria: live her hand alone, you can talk without holding her hand
Daniel: are you jealous? I was not holding your hand
Victoria: she is my friend
Daniel: she is your friend today, tomorrow she might become my wife
Victoria: you, my friend become your wife, God forbid even if Loretta here plan to become your wife, I will personally tell her not to, because your numerous girlfriend might kill her before her time
Daniel: Victoria stop saying that before your friend, do you want her to start hating me, my dear don’t listen to what she is saying, she’s just jealous
Me: it ok and beside that will never happen because I take you as my elder brother
Daniel: aright let me leave you girls for now before my little sister will kill me with her big eyes, am not eating your friend, Loretta see you tomorrow, good night
Me: good night
Victoria: brother please tell aunty Janet to bring me the fruit
Few minutes later aunty Janet came in with the fruit salad and gave it to Victoria then she left
After we have finished eating the fruit we slept off till morning.
