I turned and began to walk away.
I desperately wanted to look back at him but I just decided to let him be.
Tonight was really fun with him.
He is so funny and caring
I don’t think I’ve had so much fun before.
I kept smiling to myself as I walked to my room.
I loved it when he took me up
His arms felt safe and strong.
And he looks younger when he smiles.
I smiled as I opened the door to my room
Cindy : Blue, where have you been? I’ve been looking all over for you. You disappeared immediately after dinner. Where did you go? Did you have an unfinished business in the Prince chambers so you had to get it done?
She moved closer to Blue who was already beside her bed
Blue : no. Sorry I mean yes, I had unfinished business with the Prince stuff
Cindy : quick call Audrey, I wanna talk to her now.
I sighed and brought out my phone.
I also want to talk to her but not today again.
I brought out my phone and she collected it and bounced on her bed.
I gently laid down on mine cos I was tired.
I closed my eyes but couldn’t sleep
I kept hearing Adrian’s voice.
I suddenly saw his face.
I opened my eyes immediately.
I looked sideways, Cindy was busy laughing on the phone with Audrey.
It’s surprising how Audrey can cope with someone like her knowing the kind of person they both were. Though they hav similarities.
I rolled and laid on my tummy.
Placed both my hands and head on my pillow which means my hands encircled my head on my bed.
I closed my eyes again
I remembered when I thanked him for making the evening fun, he said I made it awesome.
Then when I said good night prince he said good night princess
The only person who ever called me princess was mother.
I suddenly wanted to see him again.
I couldn’t sleep
I rolled on the bed with my eyes closed and then I heard a thud and a striking pain on my whole side
I opened my eyes and it was just as I knew
I had fallen down the bed
I entered my room and locked the door.
My face was squeezed up and I slumped over to the cushion.
Gladys speaks with so much authority. She has something behind her.
I must find out and have it neutralised immediately.
I stood up and walked to my bar, I saw where Blue earlier had sat and was counting the number of wines I had.
As we came back from the green house, I headed to the bar for a drink.
Me: Blue do you want something to drink from here?
She stood up and looked then she shook her head and sat down.
Me : why
Blue : I don’t drink
Me: ohh, uhmm how about I get you a sparkling wine, non alcoholic sparkling wine.
She scratched her head
Blue : what’s that
Me: come over
She slowly came and stood beside me.
Blue : wow
Me: what’s wow
I climbed down the bar stool and went to open where I kept my nonalcoholic drinks.
Blue : do you sell wine? Derek doesn’t even have all these
Me: which is why he always comes here mainly for my wine, and funny enough, I’m not even half a drinker that he is.
I walked to her and poured her a glass.
She looked at me and I smiled
Me: okay take the bottle and see for yourself
She collected it and ransacked the whole body.
Then she handed it back to me.
In order to make her feel comfortable, I took a glass and poured myself some of the wine she was taking.
Though she didn’t drink it yet.
I lifted up my glass
She smiled and lifted it up
Blue : cheers…
I took my glass to my lips and saw her do the same.
She then looked over at the bar again and began to point her index finger at each wine with only her lips moving.
Me: are you counting them?
She didn’t reply, she just kept counting
Me: haha, stop
I tried to bring her hand down but she shifted back
I stood up and pulled her away
Blue : ahhh, I was just in number 13
Me: don’t count my wine.
Blue : why
Me: because….. If you count them, I’ll want to increase their number so you’ll think they’re small while they are much more than you think
Blue : huh, that’s crazy but I won’t count it anymore
I smiled to myself as everything that happened with Blue flowed back in.
From the beginning to the end, nothing was left out.
I smiled as I placed my face in my palms and brushed them up into my hair and back to my face.
She’s really pretty and active.
And her laugh is so unique and light.
Gosh those Blue eyes run me crazy.
They sparkle in the light and even if it’s dark, I see it sparkling
And I’m so glad she’s free with me, I sure wouldn’t let her go back to being scared of me.
Me: Blue, I won’t let you see me as you did before. I’ll make sure you get closer and friendlier with me, I really don’t mind what Gladys or any other person thinks.
Then my phone vibrated
I checked it
A text message from Gladys
good night my prince. From your loving princess
I hastily deleted it
Me: the only loving princess I know is Princess Blue, not you
I dropped the phone then I realized I didn’t have Blue’s number
I called Derek but he wasn’t picking up
He’s probably knocked out already
Then I texted him
hey buddy, Blue and I are getting closer. I’ll give you the full gist later but if you see this message, forward me her number
Then I left the bar and went to my room and crashed
He didn’t reply my message.
What a prince
But we used to be okay then when I wasn’t his betrothed
He’ll always reply my messages and pick my calls
I thought he has interest in me too
But why has he suddenly changed at the mention of marriage to me.
The only way he can act that way is if he really hates me and can never bring himself to love me or there’s someone else.
He’s probably into a princess somewhere and it’s definitely a secretive relationship.
Well that pretty princess is in for a heartbreaking news.
Prince Adrian is mine and mine alone.
It’s already morning
Time for breakfast
I went into the bathroom and took a shower then dressed up for breakfast.
I went down and Adrian was there
I gently walked to them and bowed.
King: sit my child
I sat down beside Adrian who wasn’t talking but just eating
I didn’t talk throughout even when the queen suggested that I get some royal maids assigned to everything I do.
I nodded and smiled
I stole a glance at the Prince
His face was expressionless
I looked back at my food
I looked at him again
Me: good morning prince
Prince: good morning
His parents looked at him
King: your engagement party is in two weeks. Get prepared and make your plans together.
Surprisingly Adrian didn’t talk
Me: I will like to go back to Birmingham this week, I need some things
King: it’s okay
Soon breakfast was over and Adrian just stood up and left
His mother looked concerned
She might back him up
I can’t allow that
I must take care of this mother of his
