Chapter Fifty

The next morning, before Tracy left. They all enjoyed a very nourishing breakfast made by Erica.
“This is nice” she commented.

Erica blushed as she took away the plates.

“You don’t have to do that baby, the maids are available” Calvin said that.
I nodded and sat down. My foot mistakenly touched Kelvin’s foot. He raised his head and gazed at me.

“Hello beautiful family!”
They all got distracted when Ava walked in. Barbie shook her head and leaned back on her chair.

“Come on Barbie, you don’t have to be rude to her. Be nice” Tracy said.
Ava had to act innocent for some seconds.

“Ah jeez mom!” She groaned and left the dinning room.
We all watched as she left.

“Come on Erica, I have to talk to you” she said and walked towards the stairs.

“Excuse me” Erica said and left. She followed her upstairs.

“I have some work to do mom, excuse me. See you tomorrow” Calvin said and left.

Tracy had a little bag ready to leave already. Kelvin wanted to leave the dinning table before his mother touched him, stopping him.
“You know about Calvin’s plan huh?” She asked.

“Yes I do” he replied, wearing a simple expression.

“He’ll get married soon. What about you?” She asked, still touching his arm.

“I don’t know mom. I’m not into marriage soon” he replied.

Tracy sighed deeply and let go of his hand.
“I understand Kelvin. I need to speak to your father. He can look for someone good for you” she said.

Kelvin gave a silent chuckle and bit his lower lip.
“You don’t have to do that mom. I’ll get married when it’s right. I’m not into girls right now” he said.

Tracy nodded and wore a simple smile.
“Fine then, but once you’ve found the lady of your choice make sure I know first” she said.

“Yes Mom, let me escort you to the car” he said and took her bag. They both head outside and out of mansion.


“Why did you even do that in the first place? I told you to let him be” Erica said to Ava, almost yelling.

“I’m sorry. I just had to try my best but now I believe you. He doesn’t have any feelings for you at all” she said.
Erica shot her a hard glare.

“I don’t really care okay? Just make sure you don’t discuss about me with him. Ever again!”

“Sure, I won’t” she promised.

“So, why are you here so early?” Erica asked and folded her arms.

“Tomorrow is the grand opening, I want you to help me pick a dress” Ava said.

“Oh really, why me? I’m a bad fashionista” Erica asked.

“I know. Whatever your taste is, I’m gonna choose the opposite” she said.

“Are you kidding me? Your totally wasting my time” Erica said and rolled her eyes.

“Come on, just an hour” Ava pleaded.

“Argh! Fine! Buy I’m going with you because I don’t want to stay in the same house with Kelvin. Okay?” She said and went to get ready to follow annoying Ava.
Calvin was in his office, making arrangements for his proposal to Erica tomorrow. He was the happiest man in earth even if he hasn’t heard her response yet.
He just hope she says yes.
“Greetings master, your delivery is here” one of the guards arrived.

“Sure, let him come in” he replied as he stared at his computer.

“Yes master” he replied and quickly left his office.
“Hello sir, your package is here” the delivery guy said as he walked into Calvin’s office.

“Oh nice, here’s my card” he said, stretching his hand to him. He took the card and withdrew the money.

“Thank you sir!” He said and left.

Calvin finally raised his head and stared at the beautiful package. It was a white suit and they belong to him and his brother.
“Kelvin would love this” he said and picked one to them to give to his brother.
Calvin got to Kelvin’s room and knocked the door softly.
“Who is it?” He heard his brother’s cold reply.

“Open the godd*mn door dude!” He said.

Kelvin rolled his eyes as he threw his legs down the bed. He slipped his foot into his slippers and walked towards his door. Sometimes he wished it was like his father’s mansion where he just had to shout ‘door open’.

He sighed and turned the keys.
“Yo!” He greeted.

“Ta-da!” Calvin said as he brought out the suit and showed it to his brother.
Kelvin rolled his eyes and gave a loud groaned.

“Are we gonna dress like a twin tomorrow again?!” He asked.

“Of course, we are twin!” He replied.

“I don’t want to..” Kelvin said and wanted to close the door but Calvin said and stopped the door.
He rushed into the room and sat on his brother’s bed.

“I need your help” he said.

“With what?” Kelvin folded his arm and leaned on the wall.

“I need to practice how I would propose to Erica” he said and sprung up, leaving the suit on the bed.

“Go elsewhere, I’m busy” he said and diverted his gaze from his brother.

“Come on dude, just give minutes” he said and brought out a diamond ring from his pocket.

“That’s quite expensive… Erica wouldn’t accept that” he said.

Calvin shot his eyes wide open.
“Are you sure?” He asked, staring at the ring.

“She doesn’t like expensive items” he said.

“How sure are you? How do you know?” He asked.

“Just guessing..” he said and smirked.

“Whatever, just let’s do it” he said and knelt before his brother.

“What the fk are you doing?” He asked.

“Erica Bruno, you are the woman of my dreams. The one I want to spend my life with. The one I want to bear my kids. I love you Erica, please agree to stay with me for the rest of my life” he said.

Kelvin just stared at his brother, giving him a what the fk look.
“That’s impressive, now leave!” He said and pushed him out.
He closed the door behind him and locked it.

“I’m not done, I have to wear her the ring and probably kiss her” he said as he banged the door. When he saw that Calvin didn’t answer him anymore, he left.

Kelvin was behind the door, leaning on it. He was going to watch his brother propose to the girl he loved. He didn’t want something like that to happen but it has to. He never wanted to hurt his brother’s feeling.

He sniffed in and left the door.


Ava brought out two beautiful gowns from the roll.
“Which of these are beautiful?” She asked Erica.

“Uh… Both?” Erica replied.

“Argh, the both are bad!” Ava groaned and returned them.

“Why? They were beautiful” she said.

“I told you, whatever you choose is the exact opposite of beautiful” she said and selected another two.
Erica rolled her eyes and folded her arms. She stared at her wristwatch and saw the it’s past an hour already.

“What about these?” She asked.

“They are expensive” Erica said.

“What? That’s weird. You’ve never said something like that before. I love it, I’m going to take this” she said and handed it to the assistant.

“I’ll take those two” she said.

“Yes ma’am” she replied and left.

Ava sat with Erica.
“So, what about you?” She asked.

“I’ve gotten my dress already” she said.

“Woah, seems good. Are you ready for tomorrow?” Ava asked.

“What’s happening tomorrow? It’s just a normal grand opening” she said.

Ava sat up and smirked. Erica didn’t know what was going to happen tomorrow.

“But have you noticed that the culprit hasn’t attacked again?” Erica asked with a smiley face.

“Oh yeah, I notice that. Seem like he has given up” she said.

“Or.. is he planning something worse somewhere?” Erica asked as the smile on her face disappear.

“Come on, I don’t think he is. He has finally given up and I’m sure he isn’t going to come back”

“Well, I hope so” she said and lowered her gaze.


Erica got home quite late, all thanks to Ava. She walked to the kitchen and took a bowl of cereal.

She poured in a lot of milk and started stuffing them into her mouth.
She went straight to her room and laid on the bed. She didn’t even have a bath before sleeping.


Ava got into the house with a lot of bags.
She saw George with his laptop.

“Hey baby, busy?” She asked.

“Yeah” he replied without even stealing glance from her.

“Erica got me these things” she said, showing him but he didn’t even look up to look at her.

Ava sighed and placed them on the floor.
She walked towards him and sat opposite him.
“Baby, what’s the problem?” She asked.

“Ava, please leave” he said.

She angrily sprung up with a teary voice.
“How can you tell me to leave? After all we’ve been through together even if it’s just a month. Why are you acting cold towards me George?” She cried as she pulled his shirt.

“I’m sorry. I’m just tired baby, forgive me” he tried to apologise but Ava kept on crying.
He pulled her closer to his chest and hugged her.

“I’m sorry baby” he said again.

She continued crying on his chest.


Cars were honking very loud due to the traffic but it wasn’t a traffic. There was an accident on the road. The road was blocked.
“Somebody help!” The person yelled for help.
He was in a very de.adly accident. If he isn’t saved in thirty seconds, the car could expIoded.

“Give me your hands brother!” Someone yelled.
He tried to stretch his hand…

“Hurry!” He yelled.

“Save me!” He muttered again.

“No…no…” Erica groaned as she rolled on the bed.

“No!” She yelled and sprung up.
