The Accidental Bride
I looked at the woman that had asked if I was willing to take the yoghurt she was drinking.
I sighed and lowered my head, I shook my head continuously and felt like snatching the yogurt from the woman and drinking it.
But am I being watched or something?
It’s hard to tell.
I stood from the seat the woman and I sat.
“Are you alright?” She asked but I only walked away.
I took a cab back home, it was getting late already and in just seven hours, If I did not take yogurt, Mr Ashley Romeo will be announcing me as his wife.
After I arrived home, I saw Mr Ashley Romeo having a conversation with Jack and Ethan.
I ignored walked inside.
After I got to Mr Ashley Romeo’s room, I sat on the bed and praying that I won’t take yoghurts for the remaining hours left.
About an hour later, Mr Ashley Romeo walked inside.
“How are you, Elizabeth?” He asked as he changed his clothes.
I didn’t answer cause I was angry about the yoghurt test.
After he had changed, he looked at me and said; “Is anything the matter?”
“I don’t know.” I replied and pretended to be sleeping on the bed.
“Why didn’t you greet me when you walked in, it’s like you didn’t acknowledge my presence.” Mr Ashley Romeo said.
I then turned to him; “My Lord, good afternoon.” I stood and bowed.
He sat and kept looking at me.
“Next time, you greet me, do you promise?” He asked.
“No, you can tell me that after I had become your original wife.” I said.
“Have you taken yogurts today?” He questioned.
“If I take it, am I suppose to tell you?” I asked.
“Even though I’m your fake husband, you still have to be sincere with me.” He said.
“Well, I took it!” I lied, watching his reactions closely.
“You did? Why in the world would you? you just failed your second test.” He said and looked away.
“Just when I thought I would be announcing you as my wife.” He let out.
So he doesn’t even have a system in place that watches me to see if I took a yogurt or not.
I’ll just tell him and he’ll believe.
Then I’m crazy for starving myself of yogurts since morning.
“I did not take it though?” I said, but was ready to go and sneakily drink one.
