My heart raced as she asked the question angrily, I’ve never seen her this angry before.
Y. Y..yes, i stuttered and she landed a heavy slap on my cheek. How dare you!!! She yelled.
I’m sorry ma’am, I was only trying to get back at her for poisoning my food a day before the completion.
I almost died that day and she left me wallowing in pain telling me that I ain’t gonna make it to the competition. I’m really sorry ma’am, I didn’t know it’d turn the other way round… I pleaded on my knees
Get out of my house this instant, I don’t wanna see you in my house when I return. I can’t believe the girl I’ve been feeding all these years made an attempt to kill my daughter by poisoning her.
“I never knew you’re such a beast. Leave now before I have you arrested” she warned and left the room after Roland had carried Ashley to the car.
Oh Lord! Why am I this unfortunate, why does it have to be when I decided to take my revenge, no one knew when she did hers to me… I thought
I packed my baggages and waited for them outside the house.
All will be well okay? We’ll both plead to her when she returns, I know you did it for revenge but she doesn’t know her daughter is more wicked and heartless than she thinks of her… The gatekeeper said as I sat with him
I hope she forgives me, I will never repeat what I did. I know She’ll realize her mistakes one day… I replied
My heartbeat increased as I saw the family drive into the compound in the evening.
“Good evening ma’am” I greeted as she alighted from the car.
And what on earth are you still doing in my house? You heartless bitch!!! She asked already getting angry as she sighted me.
Ma’am I’m so sorry, please forgive me, I promise never to repeat such. I was only mad at her for trying to ruin my life the day she poisoned my food too, I never knew it’d turn out bad. Ashley please I’m so sorry, help me beg mom… I said trying to touch her cloth but she shot me a glare
You poisoned my daughter’s food because she did the same to you, isn’t that a hint on how far you can go to kill her if she tries hurting you? Leave now and never come back. I’m going to that school to nullify every contract I’ve signed with the school about you. You’re nothing but an ungrateful bitch… She said and stormed away.
Can you now see that you’ve got no hope to be fortunate in your life? You tried to venge for what I did to you and it turned out to be you that was affected. Leave my house now before I do something bad to you. She warned
I dragged my baggages outside and stayed at the front of the house to cry my heart out.
Where will I start from, why is my life like this? I said as I cried aloud.
I’m glad she didn’t collect the phone she gave me from me, I’ll try searching for the online vacancies that’s closer to this place.
I checked the time and it was half past nine, I can’t sleep in the open I’m scared of something happening to me in the middle of the night. I thought, just then a thought of going to sleep in a church popped up in my head.
I stood up immediately, not wasting time any longer.
I got to a church I found in the next street. I stood outside to examine if anyone was watching, I sighed when I noticed I’m good to go.
I put my baggages in a corner and shifted the heavy chair at my front a bit before spreading cloth to lie on.
My eyes were closed when I felt the light turned on. I opened my eyes and saw a tall figure standing before me.
Aaaaaaaargh! I screamed and sat up immediately obviously frightened because I didn’t expect to see anyone, not after observing the environment.
Relax! I wasn’t expecting to see anyone here, I’m sorry for scaring you like that…I’m Victor, this is where I sleep. I’m just returning from work and came in to sleep only for me to see your shadow
You can sleep back, I’m sorry for interrupting your sleep… He said
Alright! I manage to say in a whisper.
I laid back and closed my eyes hoping for sleep to come take over me.
🌞THE NEXT DAY🌞
I managed to get up early, I looked around the church and luckily for me, there was a bathroom. I took my bath and dressed for school before the day breaks.
I arranged my bags properly in a corner so it wouldn’t be a burden for anyone in the church.
I went to the bank first to deposit my money in my account before going to school.
I was queried for coming late for school but was lucky to escape punishment.
I was about leaving the gatekeeper’s presence when I sighted Ashley and her mom walking out of the administration office.
“Good morning ma’am” I greeted as I walked up to them.
Did I not tell you not to show your face anywhere I am? Leave before I do something bad to you… She warned and I excused myself.
Guys, it’s seems we’ve finally succeeded in getting rid of the unwanted one here, Stephanie no longer works In my house.
She tried to kill me by poisoning my food and that got mom really angry, so she chased her out of the house, mom came this morning to inform the school of what’s happening. I’m sure she won’t be able to afford the school fees after this term’s own… Ashley said to the entire students in our class
“Let’s get rid of her finally” Irene said and they all stood up and searched for things to throw at me.
“Throw anything at me and see how dangerous I can be” I said and they all looked at me in astonishment.
Wait! did anyone else hear what she just said? I mean did you just hear the poor threaten the rich? Ashley asked them as she walked to my front.
Wow! I can see you’ve become courageous overnight, but imma show you how dangerous I could be too. Class! go ahead… She ordered and they raised their hands to throw what they’ve got at me.
I pulled her back with her hair and hit her head on the wall.
Try taking another step, and see what’s gonna happen to you… Kendrick said as irene and flora charged towards me.
I smirked as I saw them stop immediately he said the statement.
Steph! Let’s go of her… He said staring at me as I boil in anger
I made some mistakes in the last chapter. It was supposed to be Roland that his friend said has a great chef, not Kendrick
Has Stephanie finally woken up?🤔
