I alighted from the car in front of Dad’s company. I looked around and took a deep breath, I was getting nervous. “You can do this Rayna, you can do this” I told myself and walked inside the company. Eyes were hovering all over me which was what I expected, the last time I came to the company was more than 3 years ago and Dad and I had created a scene before I left angrily. I could hear silent murmurs which made me feel uncomfortable. “Miss Skylar” Dad’s PA said smiling at me. “Mr David” I said and we exchanged handshakes. “It’s been a very long time” He said and I smiled clutching my purse closer to myself with my knees shaking slowly.
“The office is that….”
“I know” I said and he smiled and excused myself. I swallowed hard and entered the elevator. I pressed and waited. Once the elevator made its sound and the door opened, I walked out of the elevator and into the office. “Good morning” I greeted the stony faces and took a sit. Everyone kept looking at their watches complaining. “Just because he’s rich doesn’t means he has a right to delay us” I heard one of them said. The door opened and everywhere became silent. I was tapping with my fingers on the desk and I didn’t see who came in. I looked up and everywhere became hot even though the AC was working perfectly okay. “Good morning, I hope I’m not late” He said and smirked. I felt cut off at the throat and was unable to say anything than swallow. He looked at me and looked away immediately like I didn’t exist. I touched my heart and felt how it beat so fast. “Daxton” I said silently but I was sure he heard me because he looked at me. We stared at each other for a moment and everyone noticed it. Even though he was distance away from me I could still read his eyes. It looked strange because the normal affection I was used to seeing in his eyes was no longer there. It was now HATE..

The meeting started but I wasn’t paying attention, my head was running a lot of different thoughts, the Daxton I used to know wasn’t the same one sitting in front of me. This one is rich, bitter and cold. What happened years ago started ruminating in my head, I lost control of my emotions and sad tears filled my face. I was brought back to the meeting when a piece of white clothing was thrown at me.
“Woman this is not a place to cry, if you want to cry you can get out of here, this is a place of business, not a place of sharing your crocodile tears” Daxton said to me codly. “I’m I’m sor sorry” I apologized and wiped my tears with my hand. What mom was saying was true after all.
The meeting ended after coming to a conclusion that I was going to take 70% of the stock shares while the Skylar would be taking 30%. I was aiming for the whole 100% but Rayna was convincing enough. Once the meeting ended, I stood up and walked outside to the elevator only for me to see her standing at the door. The thought of the both of us staying together in one elevator made me upset and I turned to use the stairs. “Wait” She called back, I turned and looked at her handing over the handkerchief I threw at her. “This belongs to you” She said. I scoffed arrogantly at her and replied her.
“It’s useless to me anyways, I wouldn’t have given it to you if it was useful” I said and turned to leave but this time she held my hand back making me feel the way I didn’t want to.
“Daxton what’s going on with you” She said and I scoffed again.
“Your question seems perplexing can you go straight to the point” I replied. “I I I mean why are you doing all this to me, I was told you were the one behind the closing down of the restaurant and now this” She said. “Yes, do I need to explain myself” I asked. “No no, it’s just just” She stammered. I dipped my hands in my pocket and walked away from her although it seemed to be very hard.
I entered the car and asked the driver to drive me home.
I stood in front of the mirror admiring myself when suddenly my phone rang.
“Hello Dad” I said.
“Selene, your sister is back from India, there’s a welcome back party I’m going to be hosting for her, you have to come and make sure you come with a date or else I’ll find one for you” Dad said. I chuckled
“Kate is back, I’ve missed her so much, don’t worry dad I’ll be there” I said excitedly
“So who’s going to be your date? Is it who am thinking?” Dad asked
“You bet it is” I replied. He chuckled and hung up while I started thinking of ways to convince Daxton to attend the party with me.
I walked upstairs to my apartment and met someone standing at my door, I couldn’t identify who the person was but I knew it was a guy. I walked to my door and the person I saw gave me a fright. “Brian” I said confused. He smiled and gave me a sober look.
“It’s been a very long time” He said.
“Brian I’m sorry, I have forgiven for everything you’ve done to me but I can’t help you” I told Brian. He’s asking me to follow him to a welcome back party and pretend to be his wife just to make his ex girlfriend jealous.
“Look Rayna, I need to know if she still loves me, Rayna when you left, I went to India for a meeting, I saw her and fell in love with her but she broke up with me last year, besides you are not pretending to be my wife, you are still my wife, we haven’t divorced remember, you just left” He said. I scoffed and rolled my eyes at him.
“If it is a divorce you want to prove that I am no longer your wife, I’ll give it to you” I said angrily.
“Please Rayna, I’m not asking you to be my wife anymore, all I need is your help, I can help you with your Dad’s company and also the restaurant ” He said looking at me soberly.
“How did you know …you know what I’ll think about it” I said and asked him to leave
“Please do” He said.
“And you know you have to bring Isa as our daughter” I rolled my eyes at him and opened the door for him to leave.
Immediately he left I felt myself in a dilemma, on one side was Daxton who has changed a lot and another side was Brian asking me to do something difficult but I can’t refuse because of the offers.
God this is getting too much for me.
I’m so confused
5 DAYS AFTER
I stood at the mirror, turning around to admire my perfect curves. I appreciated the way I was looking tonight. It’s been a very long time since I dressed this beautiful and also looked this beautiful. “My mama is very pretty tonight ” Isa said with a sausage in her mouth. I smiled and carried her from the bed to a table. “So you mean mama isn’t beautiful other days” I asked pouting and faking a frown. She shook her head in disapproval and replied. “My mama is the most beautiful in the whole worlddddd” She replied emphasizing on the “world” by raising her hands up and spreading it wide. I chuckled and removed the flipflop from her legs. “Time to get dressed honey” I said and opened her wardrobe for the same matching clothes with mine. I turned back to see that she was playing with my makeup. “Isa stop it” I scolded her. “Yes mama” She replied and dropped it.
I got her dressed and we walked downstairs to meet Brian standing beside his limousine.
“Women do really take a lot of time to get dressed” He said. I smiled at his comments. “Hey Isa come to daddy” He said and she innocently walked to him. “Isa get in the car” I said upset. I pulled Brian away from the car angrily. “Don’t give her the impression she is your daughter, please I don’t want to involve her in this mess” I said. He sighed and agreed with me. Without having anything more to say, we entered his car and the driver drove us to the Airport.
Selene dipped her hand in mine to show that we are couples, this got me upset and I swiped away her hand quickly.
“Daxton” She said sadly.
“We are still at home, no need to pretend and so you know I don’t want you to clinging over me at the party, you know I am doing all this just to be appreciative to your father” I said.
“Bla bla bla” She said and dipped her hands back in mine, I sighed and removed it again. I glared at her and that was enough to make her cooperate. She frowned and walked outside of the mansion while I walked after her.
Brian carried Isa while I walked beside him, the way a happy family is supposed to be. Tonight I was going to let go of every worries, for 3 years I have been feeling so sober and sorrowful for a man who doesn’t even care about me and pleasure to see me suffer. I’m done crying for little stuff, I’m done thinking about my past, I’m done with Daxton.
We walked inside the hall and must I say big was an understatement. I was always nervous in the midst of a lot of people.
Brian seemed to know some people in the party especially most of the Indians in the party. He introduced me as his wife and I played along. A young woman dressed in a blue gown and expensive diamonds walked over to us, she looked at me up to down like she was observing me, she scoffed and rolled her eyes at me making me feel little.
“So this is my replacement” She said to Brian who already had his hands around my waist, Isa was playing with some of the little Indians who were her set.
“Yes” He replied. She scoffed and waved at me rudely. “With this, cmon Brian I deserve better” She said making me feel upset but I didn’t say anything. “You only replace one thing with something better than it so don’t feel yourself too much” Brian said. She scoffed and walked away only for me to realize that her presence was obstructing me from seeing the cold eyes he was giving me no not me but Brian??. Even though he was standing far away from the hall I could feel his eyes gazing through me. The way he looked at Brian’s hand across my waist and then Brian was so murderous that if looks could kill, Brian would have probably been dead by now. I tried looking away but it was so difficult to avoid looking at those jealous eyes. He clenched his fists and looked like someone had stolen his property. I decided to look away rather than bother myself with his dangerous looks.
We were given a table but Isa was carried away with her new friends and she didn’t bother sitting with us. Brian acted like a gentleman and pulled out a seat for me, now there were two jealous eyes looking at both of us, Daxton’s and Kate’s. I smiled and sat down, well let’s see where the night takes us. Brian sat down putting his arms around me, my eyes caught Daxton scribbling something down on a piece of paper. He gave it to one of the ushers and surprisingly he gave it to Brian. Brian opened it, read the words and laughed.
“Okay” He said and removed his hands. “What’s that” I asked and collected the paper from him.
KEEP ON TOUCHING HER WITH THOSE HANDS AND YOU WILL HAVE NO HANDS TO TOUCH ANYBODY WITH
I smiled and looked at Brian. “Cmon don’t be a boring husband” I said and put his hands back, he was surprised but played along. I knew deeply I was killing somebody with jealousy.
