“I’m worried about Nuella, I really don’t want her to get hurt”. I said to Dennis. “She’s a lady, I’m sure she wouldn’t”. He said.
“That Raymond is capable of doing something stupid, he might forcefully take advantage of her”. I replied angrily. “And if he does, I won’t forgive him this time, I’ll kill him and tear him apart”. I added.
“I believe he won’t”. He said “Just be on the alert”.I replied Raymond’s POV
“I’m still shocked on how she became rich”. I said to Davis who ate his food without muttering a word.
“Why are you silent?”. I asked.
“I’m just surprised at how she became rich but nothing is impossible without God so she probably got a helper”. He said and I nodded.
“Well, she’s pretty now”. I said and Davis shot me a share.
“She pretty in your eyes became she’s wealthy, dad Nuella was pretty right from the start, she was just poor, I hope you don’t end up breaking her heart”. I said and he chuckled.
“We’re not even dating yet”. I replied.
“With all those kisses you gave her”. He said and I chuckled. “Weren’t you in your room? How did you see that?”. I asked. “I spied on you guys”. He replied.
“You know you shouldn’t be spying on adults”. I said.
“And you shouldn’t be kissing someone you’re not dating, it’s wrong”. He said and I laughed.
“Ok, you’re right”. I said and nudged him with an elbow.
“Nuella, where have you have been? I was damn worried”. Almet said as I entered inside.
“Nanny Dora, come take my bag to my room”. I said as a middle-aged woman quickly came and took my bag upstairs.
“Where did you go?”. He asked.
“I was with Raymond”. I said and he looked at me. “I went to his house to greet Davis”. I added.
“And what nonsense are you saying?”. He asked angrily.
“I needed to see Davis besides I’m still in love with Raymond”. I said and he shot me a stare.
“That guy doesn’t have self-control, he might end up raping you”. He said.
“He tried to kiss me, he tried to seduce me but I didn’t accept”. I said and he got angry again.
“You see what I’m saying, that guy will rape you if you don’t give in to his plans, I’m not buying this idea”. He said and I became offended.
“I understand what you’re saying but he wouldn’t, with the small fighting skills I’ve learned, I’ll break his balls”. I replied and Almet chuckled. Dad walked in.
“Is everything ok?”. He asked
“Dad, it’s about Raymond”. Almet said. “And what about him?”. He asked.
“He kissed Nuella today and I don’t want him to forcefully do something with her and end up breaking her heart”. Almet replied.
“I believe Nuella is a lady and can choose for herself, if she still loves Raymond, let her go for him”. Dad said and I smiled and hugged him.
“But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be careful, the world is wicked and you wouldn’t know when the enemies will strike”. He added.
“Yes Dad”. I replied.
“Play hard to get, dont let him know your love for him cause men tends to take women for granted when they discover that the women loves them”. He said and I nodded.
“Nuella, I think you should go and prepare for tomorrow’s journey with Raymond”. Almet said and I went to my room.
The Next Day
The drive to Dallas was smooth and interesting, Raymond kept resting on my laps like a small kid, he decided not to bring Davis along. He left him in Texas..
We got down from the bus and we entered the car that was already parked therefor us.
“Dallas is a cool place”. He said trying to start a conversation between the bothof us.
“Of course it is”. I replied and brought out my phone. “What are you doing with your phone?”. He asked “Nothing or do you feel unsecured?”. I asked and smiled.
He chuckled. “Of course not, Nuella mind if I ask you a question”. He said. “I’m listening”. I said.
“Do you have a boyfriend?”. He asked and my eyes popped out. “What kind of question did he just have?”. I asked myself.
“And why should I tell you about my private life?”. I asked back.
“I’m just worried someone might collect you from me”. He said and I chuckled. “Last time I checked, I was never yours and even now I’m not yours”. I replied and he smiled.
“You’re beautiful Nuella”. He said.
“I thought I told you to call me Miss Nuella, we’re on an official trip not an honeymoon or a romantic date”. I said.
“And why should I do that?”. He asked.
“In as long as I respect you by calling you Mr Raymond, you’re to do same”. I replied.
“Whatever”. He replied and kept silent.
“Well, I’m still single, I’m ready to mingle but no responsible man is ready to mingle with me”. I said and he grinned.
“Seriously, I’m ready”. He said.
“Mr Raymond, you’re still the same only that your pride reduced, you’re handsome, sexy and tall, you know but I think you should work on yourself”. I said.
“Give yourself control, have self control, don’t justtryto ”
He cut in immediately. “If I have self-control, will you like me?”. He asked and I nodded.
“Of course, I’ll even love you”. I said and hegiggled.
“That’s what I’ll do but I’m not assuring you besides an official trip can turn intoa romantic date”. He said and I looked at himshocked.
“And what do you mean Mr Raymond?”. I asked.
“You might end up falling in love with me at the end of the official trip”. He said and smiled.
I ignored him and tried to hide my affection for him. I just smiled and sighed.
