🍨She’s my best friend🍨
By: Pinky Preshy Chioma🖊
I carried Ella straight to her bed.
She fell asleep in my room while telling me stories.
She’s such a funny little girl…
I smiled broadly as I thought about her.
I pecked her cheek and covered her with her thick duvet.
“Good night baby” I said almost inaudibly.
I quickly turned off the room’s light and slammed the door.
I walked downstairs to get myself a glass of water.
I glanced at the wall clock….
It was already 9:30pm and Sir Ryan is not yet back.
Well as for Betty she came back a while ago with a nylon of takeaway food.
She bought food…. I bet she can’t bear the shame of facing me.
She’s been avoiding me 😂
But ion care anyways….
I turned on the light…
I walked into the kitchen and straight to the water dispenser.
I got a glass of cold water and gulped it down immediately.
I’ve been d@mn thirsty just that Ella wouldn’t let me get a glass of water since she was gisting me.
Almost all the housemaids have gone to the servants quarters.
I shook my head as I thought of Mr Ryan.
💭 What could be keeping him? 💭 I thought.
But why am I even worried about him when his fiancee is not?
I was about to walk upstairs when I saw that the sitting room window wasn’t closed properly.
I walked to the sitting room….
It was actually dark cos the light was off.
Suddenly, I bumped into someone and fell on my bu.ttocks.
“Sorry! Am sorry about that!!” It was Mr Ryan.
He turned on the light and I gradually dragged myself up.
“it’s OK sir!” I said even though I was still feeling the pains.
He was looking very tattered….
“Sir! What’s the matter?” I asked.
I was even surprised how I found my voice… I never knew I could talk to him.
He couldn’t say a word….
He was so heartbroken mere looking at him.
“Tell me Julia am really a bad person?” He asked to my amazement.
“Sir! Did you drink?” I asked as he reeked of alcohol.
“Just answer my question!” he grunted and I flinched in fear.
I gulped hard and he kept staring deep into my eyes.
He was really waiting for an answer.
“Well Sir! You are not… You are not…a…a bad person but sometimes you’ve got uhmm… Am sorry about that Sir” I said as I turned away my face.
“I’ve got what?” He asked anxiously
“I mean you’ve got a temper” I managed to say.
Tears welled down his cheeks.
OMG! I can’t believe the almighty Mr Ryan is shedding tears right in front of me.
I felt really sorry for him.
“It’s OK Sir! Please calm down” I said
He quickly hugged me tightly.
I became stunned….
Did he just hugged me?
He must be really feeling so bad….
“Mmmhhh….” Someone cleared her throat noisily and we quickly disengaged the hug.
We quickly turned around….
It was Ella.
My jaw dropped in shock.
I thought this girl was fast asleep when I left her.
She smiled mischievously at us and walked back upstairs.
I followed her to her room.
She was already lying on the bed.
I quickly turned on her room light and walked closer to her.
“Ella… Baby…” I called but I got no reply.
“Is she asleep already? It’s barely 10 mins?” I asked audibly to no-one in particular.
I shook her vigorously but she didn’t open her eyes.
Aunt Julia shook me vigorously but I pretended to be fast asleep.
She walked out of the room and I chuckled excitedly as I bounced on my bed.
THE NEXT MORNING
I was all dressed up for school.
I walked downstairs with aunt Julia chatting and laughing happily.
Aunt Julia was holding my lunch box and school bag.
We walked straight to the dinning.
Dad was already there….
Aunt Julia quickly kept quiet.
I looked at both of them and saw how they avoided eye contact and smiled.
“Good morning Sir!” Aunt Julia greeted daddy not even looking at him.
“Good morning daddy!” I said as dad smiled broadly.
He wasn’t also looking at aunt Julia.
“Good morning guys!” Dad managed to say.
💭 Aww… They are so funny 💭 I thought
“uhm… I’ll go get you a glass of milk” Aunt Julia said as she excused herself.
She walked out of the dinning.
I turned my gaze to daddy…
And g0sh! 😱
I saw him starring at aunt Julia’s disappearing figure.
I chuckled silently.
This isn’t going to be difficult….
It’s obvious my dad likes her 😁
“Daddy….” I snapped as she quickly smack back to consciousness.
I grinned at him and he gave me a what-is-it look.
“Mmhh… You like her don’t you?” I chuckled
“Like who?” Dad asked confused
“Come on daddy! You like aunt Julia right?” I asked anxiously.
“What? What the….” Dad said sharply
“Tch… It’s obvious dad! No need for denial” I grinned
“My goodness Ella! Where the heck have you been learning these things? You are too small for such talks” Dad said as he applied some butter on his bread.
“It’s written all over you daddy” I laughed
“Shut up you n@ughty girl! I don’t like her….she’s just your nanny and that’s all” Dad said.
I blinked my eyes in disappointment.
“Why dad?” I asked as drops of tears fell from my eyes.
Dad stared at me in shock.
He quickly cleaned my tears.
“Why are you crying baby?” Dad asked so concerned
“Because you don’t like my nanny!” I cried
“But baby what about aunt Betty?” He asked.
I knew it!
So it’s about that cr@zy lady Betty…. I thought within myself.
“Daddy! I don’t like Betty but I love aunt Julia…. I want her for you” I said as dad’s eyes popped out in shock.
“WHAT?” He asked in surprise as I nodded my head.
Mr Ryan’s Pov:
I walked into my huge office with my suitcase.
Thoughts of my conversations with Ella flashed back into my memories.
That little daughter of mine is so dramatic.
Why does she love Julia so much?
“I want aunt Julia for you dad” her words echoed in my ear.
I smiled broadly at nothing but my thoughts.
She’s right… I don’t even care if Betty exists.
I opened my suitcase and something fell out from it.
I bent over and picked it up.
Surprisingly, It was Julia’s picture.
I burst into laughter as I ate my cookies happily.
“You are such a bad girl Ella!” Zara laughed
“Of course!” I said excitedly
“Do you mean to say you slipped your aunt Julia’s picture into your daddy’s bag without him knowing it?” Zara asked eagerly
“Yeah! Once he sees the picture he will definitely start thinking about my aunt Julia… I researched that on goggle” I said
“You’re so smart Ella!” Zara said overwhelmed with joy.
“I know right” I grinned
“High five!” Zara said as we high five in excitement….
