?She’s my best friend?
By: Pinky Preshy Chioma?
Fear gripped me as Sir Ryan raised his voice on Betty.
Betty looked at him gobsmacked.
I couldn’t say a word.
Is this happening for real?
Is Mr Ryan really siding with me instead of his girlfriend?
He held her hands and their eyes kept peering into each others.
Betty quickly snatched her hand from Mr Ryan.
“I can’t believe you Ryan! Are you shouting at me because of this mere nanny?” Betty asked angrily.
“And I will give you a resounding sl@p if you refer to my daughter as a thing and if you talk to her nanny mannerlessly” Mr Ryan said
My eyes widened in shock. ?
I was so short of words.
Ella smiled mischievously at her.
I could even see how anger burnt through Betty’s eyes.
She stared at me with total disdain and hatred.
I only gulped nervously.
I rushed upstairs with Ella who was holding my wrist tight.
Mr Ryan followed us upstairs and I could see Betty staring at us angrily.
I walked into my room…
It was so tattered and disarrayed.
“Nanny I can help you clean up your room” I heard Ella’s tiny voice.
I smiled broadly at her.
“Come on baby you can’t! Your little hands can’t” I teased
“Of course not aunt Julia! Am a strong girl you know” She said as I hugged her tightly.
But then I frowned my face again.
“What is it nanny?” Ella asked anxiously.
“Ella don’t you feel sorry for Miss Betty?” I asked
Ella only snorted and rolled her eyes.
“I don’t feel sorry for her at all… Actually am very happy” She smiled
“Come on Ella… I really feel sorry for her! Your dad shouted at her” I said
“And defended you” Ella scoffed
I arched my eyebrows in confusion and turned away.
“But why did he do that?” I asked no-one in particular.
Ella roared in laughter.
“You know nanny! Am really very surprised too but I think I know the reason why” Ella smiled n@ughtily
“Really? Why?” I asked her softly.
“I think my daddy likes you” She winked at me.
I quickly covered my mouth with my palms and covered hers too.
“Shh… Don’t say that! You don’t know if Miss Betty is anywhere close” I whispered in fright
“Think about it nanny! My daddy defending you means that he is beginning to like you” She smiled as she walked out laughing.
My mouth widened in shock.
Could she be right?
Is she saying the truth?
I don’t think Mr Ryan will ever leave his very beautiful and sexy girlfriend Betty for me.
Am nothing but a common nanny….
I sighed loudly as I continued cleaning up.
“Arrrggghhh….” I screamed as I jumped on the bed angrily.
This is becoming unbearable for me….
I really have to do something about this…
Ryan….? My very own Ryan shouted at me because of his daughter’s nanny?
I shouted again in shock.
I couldn’t bear the thought of a nanny being chosen over me.
I quickly picked up my handbag.
I brought out a tablet and smiled.
Am definitely going to make them pay.
They are going to pay for every tear that dripped down my face.
They I mean… Ella and her good for nothing nanny Julia.
I brought out the pack of cigarettes and took out one stick from the pack.
I lighted the cigarette and smoked deeply.
No-one can steal my Ryan from me.
I repeat no-one…
I walked into the kitchen and met the maids gossiping as usual.
“Did you see how Sir Ryan raised his voice at her? He shouted at her” Veronica clapped her hands in a gossip manner.
“Yes I was actually peeping from the kitchen door… I felt so happy” The other maid said
They roared in laughter and clapped their hands.
I felt really humiliated and insulted but I covered up and stormed into the kitchen.
“Hey! What’s the gossiping about? Don’t you have works to do? Bunch of failures!” I cursed them as they faced their works.
I just hate all of them.
I looked up and saw Veronica making a glass of milk.
“Who is that for Veronica?” I asked anxiously.
is she now taking milk glasses before going to bed?
I thought within myself.
“It’s for my friend Julia.. Am just helping her make it” Veronica said
“A glass of milk for Julia?” I asked in annoyance
“The doctor advised she take that for the meantime” She said.
Just then, a thought popped into my head and I smiled.
“Hey! That’s the glass I usually take my orange juice with, so I want to use it now” I said as I walked to the cupboard and brought out another glass.
I trickishly added a tablet into the glass and quickly transfered the milk into the other(written by Pinky Preshy Chioma) cup.
I was so fast and they did even notice.
I smiled within me as I handed the glass of milk to Veronica.
“Mission accomplishing…. 95%” I thought and smiled……
