HER SISTER’S BOSS
📝MR CEO 📝
💖 Kelly’s POV 💖
You could have imagined the look of horror when I saw little Jayden batch into the office like that!
I jumped up, dropping the drink on my table, staring at him with surprise. “Jayden! What are you doing here so early in the morning? And what do you mean?” I asked confused.
I stared at Grace as she stood up, her eyes on Jayden.
Jayden stared back at her. “You… Can’t drink that!” He said again, marching forward and knocked down the glass of juice.
” Jayden!” I gasped.
Just then Mr CEO walked in, bewildered to see the scene before him. He stared down at Jayden with a very angry look.
“And what’s this about, young man?” He scolded.
Grace and Jayden continued staring at each other. “She… Put something in Kelly’s drink…” Jayden’s voice trailed off.
I stared at Grace. ” What’s he talking about? What did you put in my drink? ”
Mr CEO turned to stare at her, wondering what was happening. He put his suitcase on my table and stared at the spilled drink on the floor.
Grace began to stutter. It was so evident that she’s scared. “I… I… Don’t Know what he is talking about.”
“You know what I’m talking about.” Jayden said softly glaring up at her. ” The pills… You put abortion pills inside her drink. I heard the phone conversation.”
” What? Abortion what?” Mr CEO asked.
I was dumbfounded. Fast tears sprang into my eyes. I turned slowly to look at Grace. She was so scared. “Why?” Was all I asked her.
“I’m sorry! It wasn’t really my fault. I’m just carrying out a plan. Please, forgive me!” Grace cried.
I began to shake my head. Suddenly,I tumbled and fell. I fell straight into Mr CEO’S arms cos he caught me before I could hit the ground.
💖 Grace’s POV 💖
I knelt down, pleading as Mr CEO stared at me. Just then, chairlady,Mrs Pat came into the office and stared bewildered too.
“What’s happening here!” She yelled, going toward Kelly immediately and kneeling beside her.
Immediately,I realized the damage I could have caused but it was too late for me now. I will get jailed. Before they could turn to face me,I hurriedly took my phone and dialled Nelly’s number.
I told her everything before hanging up and surrendering myself to my fate.
Kelly was conscious again and they made her sit down. Mr CEO was in front of her, staring down at her with an expressionless countenance.
“Did you say abortion pills? Is….Kelly pregnant? For who!” Mrs Pat shouted.
Mr CEO stared on. Breathing in,he picked up his phone and dialled a number.
Placing it on his ear,he stared on at me. “Yes. Is that the head police?”
💖 Nelly’s POV 💖
I was shocked when Grace told me we’ve been caught. I was extremely scared for my life.
What’s gonna happen to me for trying to commit murder!
Immediately I cut the call,i trued thinking of a way to escape before Mr CEO gets to the station. It would be a disaster for me.
Getting up,I stood at the locked gate and called one of the police guards.
“I want to use the toilet. I’m pressed.” I said, feigning to be so tired.
He unlocked the gate and together we went outside the building. One guard was following us at the back.
I quickly calculated my moves. If I’m smart enough…I was sure gonna escape.
We got to a lonely part with an old loo and stopped.
I looked back at them. “Are you gonna follow me in? Please,I need my privacy.” I said.
They looked at each other and shrugged. ” Be fast about it. We are waiting around the corner.” One of them said and they left.
As soon as they turned their backs on me,I went into the loo and stared up at the window.
It would be very wide enough to accommodate me. So, immediately,I began to climb.
I climbed with every strength in me and got up in no time.
Squeezing into the window,I jumped down with a gentle thud and picked a hot race.
“There she is! She’s escaping!”
I turned sharply but continued running. The police guards were coming after me. I ran like hell till I got to the second Street with a wide road. I dived into a bush and continued running.
In no time,I lost them. Sinking behind a tree,I collapsed, catching my breath.
An hour later, I got up to discover I have lost my phone. Notwithstanding,I started running again and in no time,I got home.
“Miss Nelly!” Ashley called. She’s my baby’s nanny.
Not answering her,I rushed into my room, bringing out my bag immediately and throwing in anything I see.
She came inside the room again, carrying the little baby. “She’s been crying. What are you doing!”
“What does it look like I’m doing? I’m escaping!
You wanna come with us? I’m going back to St Louis.” I said rushing into the bathroom to carry my makeup kit which I left there days back.
Ashley stared at me shocked. “I thought we just returned. What happened? And what do we say to your fiance? He’s not even back yet.”
” He’s never coming back again. That punk!
He should go to hell though!’ I said, rushing to my drawer and pulling out some money.
I finally turned to look at my baby and smiled in hurry. “I’m sorry honey. Mom’s so much in a disastrous state.” I said, looking back at Ashley.
” We aren’t spending the night here.
Tommorow morning, we are gonna take the next available flight.
Hurry up and get your things. They are after me.” I said rushing outside.
Ashley rushed up too taking all her necessary belongings.
Together,we left the house.
💖 Brian’s POV💖
Raking a hand through my hair,I let out a deep breath, turning to face Kelly again. How could she keep such a secret away from me!
We are back home…at my house. Mom had been so happy since we came back and she had been singing while mixing a medicine for Kelly.
We are in my room and I placed her on my bed,after carrying her out of the car, turning deaf ears to her squirms.
“You surprised me, Kelly. How could you?” I started.
Kelly kept mute. I was alarmed when I saw the tears in her eyes.
Rushing to her side I wiped at the tears. “What’s wrong? Are you feeling that bad?”
“How could she do this to me? How? Nelly almost killed my baby. I will never forgive her for this. Never!” Kelly said, frowning deeply.
I kissed her forehead, smiling happily. “Don’t worry about her. The police has taken Grace away and together they will suffer for what they’ve done.
The most important thing right now Kelly…is that you are pregnant for me…. God…I don’t know what to feel right now. I’m thrilled. ” I said, smiling and loving her the more. This wonderful young woman is carrying my child.
Kelly smiled back and almost immediately it faded. “But…you still have a wife…I don’t want to create more damages.” Kelly said slowly.
I slide into the bed spread with her and gathered her into my arms.
“You’ve done more repairs than damages,honey. I love you.” I said, smiling at her shocked expression.
💖 Kelly’s POV 💖
I couldn’t believe it! Mr CEO just told me he loves me! All the sorrows in my head about Nelly vanished. “You do?” I stammered,fresh tears coming out.
“Oh come on,stop doing that. You are carrying my child now and that means you are gonna stay in my house. No objections.” Mr CEO said.
My breath increased and unconsciously,I threw my arms around him. I felt on top of the world.
Mr CEO hugged me back and just then, Jayden came in.
He walked slowly to the bed and I stared happily at him with so much love. If not for this little guy….my baby would have been gone by now.
Jayden did not only saved a life,he also saved his step sibling.
“Mom says to come to the kitchen and drink coffee.” He said, looking down at the floor.
Surprisingly,Mr CEO put a hand on Jayden’s shoulder.
Also amazed, Jayden glared at his father.
Mr CEO smiled. “Thank you Jayden. You are a wise kid. What would you want for Christmas?” Mr CEO asked to my astonishment.
Jayden started to shake his head. He moved backwards and ran off the room.
Mr CEO stared after the door and breathed in. I put my hands on his. “Don’t worry about him. He’s just started to get used to you.”
“I must have been so terrible to him.” Mr CEO said, looking at me.
Just then his phone began to ring. Mr CEO picked it up at the third ring. “Yes,it’s me. What??”
He thundered, spranging up to his feet. ” Escaped? How? How did you let that happen?” Mr CEO asked, pacing about.
Cursing under his breath,he dropped the phone on the bed before looking at me. “She has escaped. Nelly.”
I stopped to register that. I was less concern about Nelly now.
After what she did to me… it’s quite clear she has turned into an enemy. “It’s quite better, Brian. I don’t want to set eyes on her again.” I said, really determined this time to let go of the only sister I’ve got.
****SIX MONTHS LATER…….*****
It was early in the morning in the month of May.
I tossed around the bed and smiled,seeing Kelly beside me.
She’s been a great joy to me and source of my happiness.
I put my hand on her protruding tummy, remembering what the doctor said when we went for a scan.
He had said it was a baby girl and I really hoped it was too. I couldn’t wait to have a daughter as beautiful as Kelly.
I put on the light and Kelly woke up. Her eyes rested on me and we shared a smile.
“You dreamt about us getting married again?” I teased.
She laughed gently. ” Not again. I’m just too contented to be in your arms and by your side. It’s warm. Close the curtains.” Kelly said.
I smiled and drew near the curtains when I looked down and saw a shadow, crossing the back garden. It was a small shadow and I quickly knew who it was.
“What are you looking at down there?” Kelly asked me.
” I think I saw Jayden’s shadow crossing the back garden.
Hold on. I will be right back.” I said and came down from bed.
I put on my robe and quietly opened the door and went out of the room and downstairs.
I walked through the darkened hallway and opened the front door then stepped out in the early morning breeze. It brushed back my hair as I found my way to the bank garden to check Jayden out.
I was barely getting to the back garden when the foul smell started to tease my nostril.
What’s happening? What us Jayden up to?
I came into the open and stopped in my track, almost screaming.
But my lungs had suddenly gone dry and I couldn’t even utter a word as I stared shockingly at Jayden.
Sitting on the first swing was Jayden, smoking a cigarette stick and holding a pack of cigarettes.
The amazing thing was that he wasn’t a bit scared of seeing me.
“You little…! What do you think you are doing!!” I shouted.
Jayden stood up from the swing,the cigarette still in his mouth. He drew it out and blew off a mouthful of the dark substance.
I couldn’t believe it was him! Jayden is only four!
“I’m sorry Dad. But since when did you started to care about all I do? It doesn’t really matter to you right? Is smoking bad? Oh no,no one ever told me. I think this is my third time now…and it’s way too cool than licking candies! Hmm!!”
I stood dazed as I watched the little boy. I still could not believe it!
But..it’s real… Jayden is smoking right before me. What have I done to myself??
Our cute Jayden is about turning bad!!
Hope you are ready?? Do you think it’s Mr CEO’S fault??
