?She’s my best friend?
By: Pinky Preshy Chioma?
Mr Ryan’s Pov:
I walked downstairs to the dinning for dinner.
Ella was already at the dinning eating.
I quietly sat on the chair and dished out the chicken salad into my plate.
There was absolute tranquility….
I know Ella is still not happy with me.
Because I accused her “DEAR” nanny of being a thief.
She only sighed as she saw me and continued eating.
Actually we were the only one at the dinning table that night.
Betty should be in the room crying her eyes out.
Serves her right for being so inhumane.
“Ella! Baby how do you want the chicken? Oven or fried…?” Julia said as she walked out of the kitchen.
She quickly kept quiet as she saw me.
I gulped nervously…
I don’t even know how to face her after the treatment I gave her.
“Maybe oven baked chicken..” Ella said as she nodded and turned to leave.
“Nanny wait!” Ella said as she stood at the spot.
“Dad! Don’t you think you are forgetting something?” Ella spoke to me.
I looked at her confused.
“Something like what?” I managed to ask with my eyes fixed on the plate.
“When you do something bad to someone, what do you do next to show that you are truly sorry for the bad you’ve done?” Ella asked
“You apologize.. ” I said freely
“Good! Daddy didn’t you do something bad to my nanny? So you have to apologize” Ella said as I gasped.
“Huh?” Julia and I said in unison
“Yeah! Apologize to my nanny dad… That’s the right thing to do! Isn’t that what you always tell me?” Ella said as I scratched my head in confusion.
? Why is this daughter of mine too smart? I can’t believe I will apologize to a nanny I employed ? I thought
I couldn’t say a word…..
Sweats rushed down my face.
The weather was cold and I was sweating profusely…
You can imagine that ?
“It’s OK Ella! He doesn’t have to do that.. He did what he thought was right” Julia covered up immediately and Ella scoffed.
“Oh really? He did what he thought was right but it turned out it wasn’t right so he should do the right thing by apologizing” Ella said
I really have no choice here?
“Hurry up dad! Nanny needs to get me the oven baked chicken” Ella said
“OK… Julia am really sorry for what happened earlier please forgive me!” I said almost bitting my tongue.
“It’s OK sir!” She said
I quickly turned to Ella….
“I just did what is right…” I said
“Good… But something is still missing” She said as we heard the footsteps coming from the staircase.
It was Betty….
I know she heard me apologize to Julia.
She looked really miserable in her tattered hair.
“What’s missing?” I asked anxiously
“Your witch has to go down on her knees and apologize to my nanny like right now” Ella said as we gasped.
“H.ell no! I’ll do no such thing… I can never go on my knees to apologize to this tramp” Betty blurted out.
I eyed her angrily.
“I see you have no repentance… Daddy just throw her out like you did to Cassandra after all she is her accomplice” Ella said
We widened our eyes in shock.
“What?” I asked shocked to the bone marrow.
“Baby I need to get you the chicken now” Julia said about to excuse herself.
“No! You won’t get it until the proud witch apologizes to you” Ella said.
Betty quickly turned around and looked at me still in tears.
“Go ahead Betty! Apologies now!” I said sternly
“What? Ryan?…..” Betty called with pleading eyes.
“I said go on your knees and apologize to Julia” I said not even looking at her face.
She walked straight to Julia sluggishly.
Betty kept looking at me thinking I was going to stop her but I didn’t.
She gradually knelt in front of Julia.
The maids gasped in shock as they peeped from the kitchen.
This time Betty was crying bitterly.
She was kneeling in front of Julia.
She opened her mouth to apologize but she quickly shook her head in disagreement.
“No! I can never apologize to her…” She screamed as she quickly got up and rushed upstairs.
Ella roared in laughter as she smirked at me.
“At least she knelt!” Ella said smiling.
I’ve got such a wicked daughter….. ??
I just can’t stop wondering why she loves Julia so much.
I quickly mopped my face with a handkerchief.
My face was all swollen…
My eyes were swollen too.
I’ve been crying since yesterday night…
Ryan has refused to talk to me and my life has been nothing but hell.
“Arrrhghh…” I screamed in pain.
I have never been so humiliated in my entire life.
“Calm down girl! I almost got a heartache when you screamed” Sonia shrieked
“I feel like screaming the more Sonia! You need to see the kind of humiliation I went through yesterday… Me? Betty!” I cried bitterly
“What happened?” Sonia asked anxiously
“I can’t wait to rip that stupid little girl Ella apart! She’s nothing but trouble for me” I cried
“What did she do this time?” Sonia asked as she sipped her wine.
“That girl….. She told Ryan to make me kneel in front of her good for nothing nanny and apologize” I said bitterly
Sonia choked as she coughed slightly.
“You? Should kneel in front of Julia?” Sonia asked in shock
“Yes! Ryan asked me to kneel in front of Julia and apologize to her” I cried
“What?” Sonia asked as her eyes popped out…
“Here…. I got some ice cream for you both” Nanny said as she handed two plates of ice cream to my friend Zara and I.
“Thank you aunt!” we chorused as she smiled.
She walked out and Zara smiled mischievously at me.
“Your nanny is such an angel” Zara said happily.
I chuckled happily
Actually Zara’s mom and my mommy used to be friends when my mom was still alive.
Zara and I are very good friends.
It’s a Saturday….
So Zara’s mommy dropped her off at our place.
We need to do a lot of bonding ?
So we are best of friends.
Though Zara is my best friend but aunt Julia is my bestest best ?
“Yeah! Aunt Julia is so nice…” I said excitedly
“I can see that! And she even prepared cupcakes for us…” Zara said
“That’s even the least…. She’s really caring and loving!” I said
“I wish my mom can get me a nanny as lovely as your aunt Julia” Zara envied
I burst into laughter.
“And guess what?” I whispered smiling broadly.
“What?” Zara asked eagerly
“I THINK SHE’S SUITABLE FOR MY DADDY” I said as Zara screamed.
“Really?” Zara laughed.
“Shhhh… You gossip m0nger!” I joked
We roared in laughter….
Ella eeh… ??
She’s a n@ughty girl ??
And Julia doesn’t even know ??
But Zara and Ella are little gossipers oo.. No matter how small girls are, they always gossip ??
Don’t you think so?
