Grand finale Season_2
By: Faith Lucky.
The following morning, I stayed indoors the whole time, wanting to be alone. Daniel’s betrayal and everything that’s happened kept niggling at me. How could he ever think of doing such a thing to us?
We were like brothers. Why did he have to go that far over a temporary position?
I was so bittered and hurt. Because of him, we’re all in this mess. So many things happened; yet; he stood by me every single moment. What got into him?
I heard a knock on my door which snapped me out of my thoughts.
“Sir, there’s someone here to see you” a voice said from outside.
It was Evans.
“I want to be alone” I replied cheerlessly; still sitting on the chair in front of the window.
“It’s Jeanne, sir” he said and my eyeeyes beamed.
I sprang on my feet immediately and ran to open the door.
“Wh…Where’s she?” I asked him.
“She’s downstairs, sir” he replied, bowed and left and I followed suit immediately.
I rushed downstairs and found her there in the sitting room with Molly, playing.
I stopped and watched her as she laughed and carried Molly on her shoulders who was also giggling.
I stopped and stared at how happy she was, but unfortunately, she saw my and stopped playing.
“Shuu! Alex, go away. Come on nanny, let’s continue” Molly said and tried getting on her shoulders again, but wasn’t allowed.
“Um…baby, we’ll play later, okay? Nanny needs to do something first.” Jeanne said and she faked a frown, but brushed it off with a smile.
Then she ran away .
I stood, staring at Alex as he remained on the stairs, staring at me as well
“Um…hi” I said warmly and that was when he climbed down the stairs.
But we still stood apart from each other.
He didn’t Say a word, but just kept staring at me and it got me cringing.
“I um…I came to see you” I said, but he still didn’t make a move.
Could he be mad at me or something?
I walked closer to him and stood in front of him. I stared into his sparkling eyes as they stared into mine. Then, I kissed him.
I placed my hands on his cheeks and kissed him so tenderly, but he didn’t reciprocate.
“Alex”:I called after unlocking from the kiss.
“I’m sorry for trying to run away. I was only being scared. The truth is, I love you. I love you so much and I’m ready to spend the rest of my life with you. And not just me;” I paused and took his hand, placing it on my tummy.
“But your baby too” I added and that was the first time he smiled.
I chuckled when he smiled and he took his hand from my tummy and placed them on my cheeks.
“You really do love me, huh?” He asked and I nodded with a smile.
Then, he hugged me.
“I was scared I was going to lose you, Jeanne” he spoke softly while holding me.
“I thought you’d never want to be with me again, but you chose me. Thank you”
I smiled as he spoke to me and next, he disengaged from the hug and went for my lips instead.
I smiled as he kissed me so perfectly, holding my hair.
“I love you” he said when we broke the kiss.
“I love you too” I replied, brimful with happiness.
We were about kissing again when the door suddenly opened and we turned to see two figures standing at the entrance.
