Chapter Forty Four

Kelvin took a deep breath and walked towards Erica. He shoved her aside and continued from where she stopped. He poured the water into the cup and added all the necessary ingredients.
He stirred it and handed it over to her.
He gently added her toast beside her tea.

Erica smirked and walked towards the tea. She grabbed it and poured it into the sink.
“Stay away from me…” She said, grinning her teeth. She turned and walked out of the kitchen.

Kelvin watched what she did and how she walked out on him.
He was totally speechless and out of words. He started to wonder what he was doing at home. Suddenly, he heard the doorbell.

Before he could reach the door, a maid reached there already. She opened the door for the doctor.
“Hello doctor” she bowed.

“Where is Erica Bruno?” He asked.

“She’s in her room” she replied.

“Let her know I’m here” he said and made himself comfortable.
He sat on the couch and stared round the house.
He saw some decorations on the table and checked them.

A wow escaped his lips. Then he saw someone standing before him, but he was just staring at his shoes. He looked up and saw Kelvin.

“Hello master” he bowed.

“How do you know I was the one?” Kelvin frowned.

“Your brother told me you were sick and I should check on you and… I can see some hair growing beneath your nose. That’s something your brother will never do” he said, smiling. He stopped smiling when he saw that Kelvin wasn’t smiling with him.

“So, what’s wrong with you master?” He asked.

“Good morning doc…” Erica said as she walked into the scene.

“Hello mistress…” He greeted.
Erica frowned and sat on a single couch.

Kelvin sat opposite her with the doctor between them.
“So who do I start from?” He asked.

They both kept mute, glaring at each other.
“Start with her…” He said, trying to act like a gentleman.

The doctor stared at Erica.
“Are you ready?” He asked.

“Do I have to be ready?” She replied.

The doctor swallowed hard and sat beside her.
He raised her leg and removed her bandage.

“Try moving it slowly..”

Erica suddenly stood up and stormed the leg on the ground.
“All good…” She said and head to her room.

“Uh… Congratulations” the doctor yelled as he watched her leave.

Kelvin almost stood up, going after her.
“So master… What’s wrong with you again?” He asked.

Kelvin diverted his gaze away from Erica and stared at him.
“Uh… My bones ache a lot and…” He said as he fixed his eyes on the staircase.

“You have to take a lot of rest and eat a lot of vegetables…Oops my bad, I forgot you don’t eat vegetables. You can take a lot of milk and fish then” he said and gave him a list.

“And take these drugs. It will help a lot” he said.

“Thank you…” He said and grabbed the list from him.

The doctor watched as he ran up the stairs.
“What’s wrong with those two?” He murmured.

He parked his items and left. He didn’t forget the crutches.


Erica was happy that her leg was back. She just stared at it as she laid in the tub.
She was having a bubble bath. She played with the bubbles and soapy water.

Then she heard a knock on the door.
“Who is it?” She yelled but didn’t get any reply.
She scoffed and continued her bath. She went to her room and wore a very beautiful dress. She brushed her hair and styled it. She applied some makeup and grabbed her heels.
She was looking so hot and sexy.

She grabbed a car key from the table and stared at it.
“Argh.. I don’t know how to drive” she murmured.
She walked out of the house and threw the key to a driver.

“Where mistress?” He asked.

“Take me to the company” she said and entered into the car.
The drive got into the car and drove off.

Kelvin walked out of the house and saw that Erica left already. He sighed and turned to leave. Then he saw a car driving into the compound. He stopped and waited to see who it was.

Then the door open as Josh and two strange faces walked out of the car.

He folded his arms, wondering why they were here and who the are.

“Why are you here?” Kelvin asked in his cold voice.

“We are here to see Erica” Josh said.

“Why?” He asked.

“It’s something personal” Winnie said.

Kelvin frowned.
“What is it?!” He asked again in a loud voice.

“Fine, we’ll tell you” he said.


Erica got to the company, she grabbed her sunglasses and wore it.
She stylishly opened the door and stepped out of the car.

Some of the employees saw her and started gossiping.
“Isn’t that Erica?”

“What’s she doing here?”

“Woah, she’s so pretty”

“Argh… I so much hate her..”

Erica didn’t care about what they were saying. She adjusted her she glasses and walked into the company.

Everyone glared at her, including her brother. He smiled as his sister walked towards the elevator. She went up to Calvin’s office and threw the door wide open.

“Hey baby…” She said with a smiley face.

Calvin looked up and stared at her. He shot his mouth wide open and gazed at her from head to toe.
“Erica?” He called out and glared at her.
He sprung up and walked towards her. Ava was beside him. She was smiling broadly.

Erica just stood, waiting for him to get to her.
“You are here?” He asked.

Erica nodded and placed her hands on his shoulders.
“Miss me?”she asked.

“Oh yeah…”

Ava cleared her throat.
“Excuse me..” she said and left. As she walked pass Erica, she slammed her a** and left the room.

“Your ankle is well…” He said, staring at her feet.

“Yes, yes it is” she said, still smiling at him.

“You are looking so beautiful…” He said.

“Thank you..” she said again, with her hands still on his shoulder.

“Why are you here? I told you to stay at home” he said.

“I know. But I’m bored. Can you go shopping with me?” She asked.

Calvin turned to stare at the pile of work he had on his table.
He stared back at her and smirked.

“Fine… Let’s go” he said and went with her. They held each other hands and went out of the office.
Ava gave her a thumbs up.

“I’ll be back Ava” he said.

“Yes sir” she replied as she watched her friend walk out of the office with her boyfriend.

Erica leaned her head on his shoulder as she walked pass her co workers. They stared at her in shock and started their normal gossip.
Calvin took Erica to the mall and they shopped almost the whole day.
“How did you get your powers?” He asked as they selected an outfit together.

“An accident” she replied.

“I see. How did it happen?” He asked.

Erica sighed. It was a long story as usual.
She remembered when she was seven. Her parents took her to a beach with George and aunt Winnie.
They were all having fun till the weather changed.

They started sending everyone home because there was a huge storm coming.

Mr and Mrs Bruno looked for little Erica round the beach but didn’t find her.
Her mother started to cry. She thought Erica was in the water already, probably dead.

Her father consoled her, assuring her that Erica was okay.
She was just probably somewhere.

Suddenly, the rain started the water was starting to rise. Her mother didn’t want to leave the beach until she finds Erica.
“Erica!” She yelled and fell on the floor as she cried.

They heard her voice behind them. They both turned and saw Erica shivering.
She was dmn cold and wet.

“Erica!” They both yelled and walked towards her, wanting to hug her.
Then a lightening from ni where stroke her and she fell. Her mother was in a coma for a week.
Her father had suffered to take care of them both, including George.

After her mother woke up from her coma, Erica woke up two days later.
That was how she got her powers.
“Hmm, sounds interesting. How was your first time knowing about your powers?” He asked again. Erica was starting to this if it was an interview.

“It started at school. I slept a lot. I had my first dream where my teacher had an accident but I didn’t say anything about it and besides, it was just a dream” she said.

“So, what happened?” He asked, he wanted to know the end of the story.

“That’s it. I didn’t tell her so she got into an accident and died. I blamed myself for it. I wished I’d tell her” Erica said softly, wanting to cry.

“It wasn’t your fault. You were just seven” he said.
Erica wiped the tears in her eyes and stared at him.

“Thank you” Erica murmured softly as she stared into his eyes.
