Living A Liar’s Life
By : Kebby NG
I sat in the tower crying,How could he have asked me to go and apologise
He knew that I didn’t want to go and he knew how diane behaves with me yet he chose to take sides with the Campbell family,I thought crying hard.
“I knew you would be here”William said behind me suddenly
On hearing his voice,I wiped my tears and said lightly
“I don’t want to see any one right now,Please leave”I said
“Why should I?”he asked
“Please William,Leave,I don’t want to see any one”I said again as I kept on crying
Thinking he has left and I was alone,I continued to cry but I was shocked when suddenly he came to sit beside me
“I thought I told you to leave”I said
“So I wouldn’t see how ugly you look when you are crying”he asked
“Am not in the mood to listen to your jokes”I said I wiped the tear off
“And am not joking,You really do look ugly”He said
“Oh you missed a tear”He said again as he wiped off my tears
I moved away and starred outside while I cried gently
“You don’t have to hold it in because am here,Just cry it all out”He asked
Burying my face in hands,I cried into it.
“Your husband is a real louse,He should have at least asked what happened but instead he asked you to go and apologise”He said
“Did you see what happened just now!”I asked as I calmed a bit
“I was walking by and I couldn’t stop from listening”
“There must have been a reason why you did it,Tell me what happened”He said
“Funny enough,I was expecting Brian to ask me that question but it turns out that it’s you”I said as I starred at him
“Yep it’s me and you are not going to hide a thing, you are to tell me every thing”He said as he held my hand.
Sighing a bit,I told him every thing and instead of hearing a word of accusation from him,instead he began to clap for me
“Good work,I love the part where you beat her up” He said
“You shouldn’t make a joke out of it,Because of me they will be losing a contract worth millions”I said
“Better to lose it than to have you beg in front of that snobbish Campbell”He said
“So you are saying am right!”I asked
“Of course,The woman deserved it,from what you have told me,She has started this for a long time”He asked and I nodded
“Yes,She has always been saying things but I pretended not to hear or I act like I was a dummy who didn’t under stand”
“So yesterday was the day she payed for it All?”he asked and I nodded lightly
“What am I going to do,They are all so angry with me”I said
“You don’t have to do any thing,You don’t have to go and beg those damn Campbell,Listen I will find a evidence and I will help clear your name”He said
“What? But how?”
“Just leave it to me,Give me a day or two and I promise you every one who turned their back on you will come begging”he said
“Hope you won’t do some thing worse”I asked
“Of course not,Just trust me”He said giving me a smile
“Fine then”I replied as I starred out again
“We will have to clean this off”He said as he brought out his hand Ker chief to wipe off the blood on my mouth
“Even though she is old her hand is still as strong as a brick”He said and I smiled a bit
“Let them hear you calling her that”I said
“Finally! You smiled “he said as he stared at me
“You shouldn’t let things like this bring you down,You should be strong and you should face it head on”he said also starring out
I stared at him and smiled a bit and with out realising it,I layed my head on his shoulder
“Thanks for being here William,Your presence here makes me feel that I have a friend”I said gently and I didn’t notice the look William gave me,Neither did we notice Brian who stood behind us starring at us.
When I got back to the palace it was getting quite dark.
William had left to check on the construction site and I still not wanting to see any one,I stayed in the tower until it was late.
I went to my room not bothering to look at any one or to answer any one question .
As soon as the Door was closed,I saw Brian sitting by the window starring out side
“You have finally decided to come back right? Where were you?”He asked
“I don’t want to talk to you Brian,So just leave me alone”I said as went to my drawer to take my night clothes
Suddenly he pulled me to him and held me tight
“You were with him right? I thought I told you that I don’t want to see you with him!”
“Why? Why shouldn’t I be friends with him,After all he is the only one who believes me”I said pushing him
“So this is it,You are trying to punish me because I didn’t believe you right?”He asked
“Punish? Does it look like I am punishing you?”I asked and he pulled me into his arms again
“Yes you are and you doing it in the worst way,You know how I feel about that guy,Yet you still move around with him,I hate it Emma,You are mine,Mine alone”He said as he began to kss me
I would have accepted his kss but this wasn’t a kss,it was like some sort of punishment and I didn’t want it at all
“Don’t you dare touch me Brian”I said as I pushed him away
“What! Is he pleasing you better?”
“Did you just ask me that?”I asked feeling so very angry
“What do you expect me to believe when you keep on moving about with him,It only shows that you are slee……..”before he could complete it,I slapped his face
“Never! Never have I given you a reason to doubt me Brian, you really are a j.erk”I said as I moved past him into the toilet locking the door.
“Fine then since you have decide not to tell me the truth,I won’t be sharing your room tonight!”He yelled at me and the next thing I heard was the door closing.
I couldn’t sleep that night,Even after I cried so much,I just couldn’t stop worrying about Brian
He had made it plain that he wouldn’t sharing my bed tonight,So where could it be,I thought as I looked at the time to see that it was four in the morning.
I couldn’t take it any more,I stood up and went in search of him.
The guards who were by the door were useless in telling me any thing.
I had gotten some of maid who were working night to help me check if the he was in the guest room but nothing.
“Still nothing your Highness”Grace said as she walked down the stairs to meet t me
“Where could he be?”I whispered to myself and just then I heard Alicia voice behind me
“Why bother searching far when he is so near”she said and I turned to stare at her
“What do you want?”I asked
“To help with the search your Highness,I believe you are searching for his majesty”She asked
“We don’t need your help,Just go back to where you were coming from”I said
“You won’t find him in any other room apart from mine” She said and I turned to stare at her
“Come see for your self,Seems like you drove him to my arms tonight”She said and angrily I walked past her.
Brian couldn’t be there! He wouldn’t be so cruel as to do this,Not on a night like this,I thought as I got to Alicia room
Breathing in deeply I opened the door and I found him on the bed Sleeping like a log
“I told you right,So now don’t wake my darling and please leave”Alicia said as she closed the door right on my face.
I went back to my room and I cried my eyes out until I slept off.
I woke up to find myself wrapped in some one arms.
It was none other than Brian,I thought as I gently pulled out of his arms and went into the bath room to take a shower.
What a ba$tard,I thought as I brushed my teeth and got dressed in the bathroom.
As soon as I got back into the room,It was to find a maid pushing in our break fast and Brian standing by the door giving me a smile,I didn’t return
As soon as the maid left,He walked towards me
“Come eat,I made sure they got you every thing you liked”He said
“Am not hungry,Am going out for a stroll”I said as I moved past him
“Hey don’t you see that am trying to say sorry here”He said and I remembered every thing he said and did yesterday
Walking back to the table,I pushed the table over spilling every thing
“Why did you do that?” he asked
Giving him a cruel smile I said “you don’t have to say sorry any more right?”I said and then i began to head out
“Emma let’s talk this out”He said as he pulled my hand
“Let go of me!”I yelled at him pushing him away
“Emma!”he called surprised
“Don’t you touch me again”I said as I walked out of the room.
I was heading out when the great queen maid ran towards me again
“Your Highness,The great queen and king wishes to see you”She said
“What now! Is she going to draw my hair out”I muttered as I head towards their chamber, On getting there I bowed.
“Am so glad that you came my dear”The great king said but I didn’t Reply
“The queen wishes to tell you some thing”He added
“Am……am sorry for yesterday,I wasn’t really clear on the fact but now that I am,I………”
“It doesn’t matter,What has happened has happened,You chose not to believe me but to believe some one else,what just happened made me realise that I can’t count on my husband family”I said and bowed gently before leaving the room.
I went for that stroll and i was lost in thought that I got to the place where the new orphanage was being built.
There were no worker there yet and I walked in only to see that it was being built just like the other orphanage home
Seeing this place only makes me think about Brian and I didn’t want to think about him.
I went back to the tower only to find it empty,I was expecting to see William,Maybe he is busy with his work,I thought.
I went back to the palace only to see Grace coming towards me with my phone
“Your Highness,Your name has been cleared,That madam Diane came out saying that she caused every thing”She said and I took the phone from her to watch the video.
So this is why they were all acting nice,I thought as I gave the phone to her,This is why he had wanted to apologise,I thought sadly
“Your Highness,His Majesty is coming”Grace announced
“Come with me,I have some thing to show you”He said
“Let go of me,I can walk by myself”I said I pulled my hand free.
