(WHAT DO YOU WANNA EAT?)
I can’t believe I saw the man who offered us money the other day again. I was dumbfounded and same were the hefty security men when the man asked me to enter into his car.
And now, I don’t know where he’s heading. All I know is that he won’t hurt me because he seems like a nice man.
He was asking me millions of questions that got me stuttering in reply during the drive. Almost all the questions were about Lia.
“She would be worried by now because I told her I won’t stay long right?
This is my first time in a car.
I stare at the man and I saw a huge grin on his face.
“Why is he this happy?” I keep wondering.
After a long drive, he pulled up in front of a very big and magnificent mansion. Even all the house in the vicinity speaks money. He must be a very rich man I concluded.
I don’t know how but the mansion gate opened and when he drove in, it closed by itself. He got down from the car and rushed to open mine.
“Come!” He said holding my hand.
This would also be the first time someone like him is holding me. The door flew opened after he pressed something on it.
“Woooooow” I exclaimed staring at the decorations, painting,and all the things my eyes saw inside. I was left in awe. I keep thinking maybe am in the heaven paradise.
I was lost staring at the wonderful and mouthwatering view that I didn’t heard him calling me not until I felt someone pinch me.
“I’m sorry sir…..I’m so sorry sir” I pleaded coming back to my senses.
” It’s okay!. I was asking what you would like to eat”
“Pizza? Spaghetti Bolognese? Steak?” He started mentioning names of food have never heard of in my entire life.
“Sir…if not bread or junks…I don’t understand any other thing” I told him sincerely.
” Oh okay! Don’t worry I will order pizza for you right now!”
” Come on!….have your sit” he added and I quickly sat on the floor.
It feels so good sitting on the neat tilled floor.
“No!…you shouldn’t sit on the floor”
“Sit on that” the man said gesturing to the long white bed.
” But that’s your bed sir and I don’t want to stain it with my dirty clothes” I replied slowly.
” Bed?” He asked smiling.
Why is he smiling? Isn’t that a bed?
“That’s a couch…and it’s meant for sitting”
Couch? So he want me to sit on that?
” But sir…”he didn’t allow me to finish my statement before helping me and my butt landed on the soft comfy couch as he called.
“I really have a lot of questions to ask you but it can wait until you are done eating” sir suddenly said with a serious tone.
A lot of questions?
Apart from the ones he asked earlier?
“I’m Dwayne so
quit calling me sir”
What! He want me to call him by his name? Someone I just met? A very rich man for that matter!
“Come to think of it…what’s your name?”
“Alex…I’m Alex sir” I answered.
” And the lady?”
“Yes sir… Amelia”
“Oh! Amelia….that’s such a nice name” he commented smiling.
Such a nice name?
What about mine?
“Lia would be worried and hungry by now” I thought.
*DWAYNE POV 🥀*
You won’t believe how happy I am to encounter this guy I now know to be Alex and the lady Amelia.
“Such a nice name” I told him and not long after I said that, I saw him felt uneasy.
“Is there a problem?” I asked worriedly.
“What about her?”
“She would be worried by now. When I left home,I told her I won’t stay long” he explained and I release the breathe I never knew I was holding.
I was still thinking of what to say to that when the doorbell rang.
“That’s the pizza man. Lemme quickly go get that”I told Alex standing up.
I came back after paying the delivery man.
Now that I think about it. Won’t it be better if I give all this to Alex with some cash?
Amelia would be worried about where her friend disappeared to. So letting him go for now will be the best thing to do.
I got to where he was sitting and handed him the pizza box.
“Take…let me drop you off quickly because I don’t want Amelia thinking maybe someone has kidnapped you” I said with a chuckle.
” Wait…” I brought out my phone and removed my sim card before putting the extra one that no one knows inside it.
“Take this… I will write my number for you to call me anytime you are in need of anything whatsoever”I explained giving him the iPhone I bought of recent.
I saw the surprise look on his face but one thing he isn’t getting here is that this is just the beginning of what I’m gonna do for them.
“Wait…give me a minute” I said again going into my room.
I came out afterward and gave him all the cash I found in there.
“That would sustain you for some time so you won’t have to wander y or beg” I told him feeling fulfilled.
” I’m short of words sir!…I don’t even know what to say or how to thank you” he started saying but I cut him off.
” This is nothing…no need for you thanking me Alex” I told him sincerely.
If only you know this is just a tip of an ice-berg.
