I woke up the next morning, lying stark nak*d under the blankets. I spread my hand on the bed and noticed I was the only one lying on it. Where was Rodney?
I smiled and sat up. Remembering what had happened the previous night filled me with so much joy that I’ve never had to feel in so many years.
Rodney was so sweet in bed with me and I wished it never had to come to an end. I couldn’t believe he was finally mine.
I left the bed and walked to the wardrobe and found something light to wear.
Then I left the room and stopped the first maid I saw.
“Do you know where Rodney is?” I asked.
“I think he left already. I saw him driving out not long. Ago.” She replied and walked away.
I sighed and felt a little disappointed. Why did he have to leave without saying anything to me?
Maybe he was shy” I finally concluded and walked away, beaming with smiles.
I didn’t want anything that’d ruin my joy that morning. Nothing at all.
I had breakfast, bathed and got ready for school.
On my way, I stopped by a jewelry store and got a pretty necklace and continued driving to school.
Immediately I arrived, I traced Edith and found her at the cafe and immediately, I
jumped on her, embracing her tight.
I was a bit surprised as Megan hugged me and took me to a place that was free of students.
“Um…good morning Megan. What’s going on?” I asked with a fazed look and she giggled.
“You’re not gonna believe it Edith. Guess what happened last night” she asked with ecstacy.
“Um…you got a free visa to dubai?” I asked and she laughed and hugged me again.
“Rodney mated with me last night” she exclaimed happily and I gasped.
“Wait; hold on Megan; you mean Rodney slept with you last night?” I asked with disbelieve and she giggled and embraced me.
“Yes Edith! It’s unbelievable. I didn’t expect it but It happened. It was so sweet! I can’t explain it”
I smiled happily and we unlocked from each other’s hold.
“I’m happy for you Megan. I told you the plan was going to work out.” I said and she smiled.
She dipped her hand into her bag and brought out a pretty necklace
“Here; this is for you, for being such an amazing friend. Thank you, Edith” she said and I collected it from her and admired it.
“You know you’re always welcomed Megan. I’ll always be here for you”.
“Hmm” she sighed.
“So Rodney’s finally mine”.
“Yeah. And taking about relationships, I think that Audrey of a girl has been too close to that Leo of a guy for some time now”
“Yes, I think so. He even brought her to the house yesterday. Anyway, that isn’t my problem. She can be with whomever she wants to be with, just as long as it’s not my Rodney”.
“Come on Megan. You know I have a crush on Leo. I can’t just lose him like that” “Well, I guess that’s your problem now” she replied and laughed.
“But you know, Edith; I’m still scared of one thing- what if Rodney finds out I lied to him?”
“Come on Megan; there’s no way he’s gonna find out. Remember we paid the
doctor awesomely and I’m pretty sure he’s not gonna expose. And aside him, no
one else knows about it”.
Megan sighed nervously
“I hope so, Edith” she said.
We were about walking away when we saw Audrey from a distance and we smiled and walked over to where she was.
“Hi. Look whom we have here” Megan said with a wry smile while I giggled.
Audrey tried to walk away but we held her back.
“Where are you in a rush to Audrey? I just got here” Megan said while holding her wrist.
“I don’t have time for this Megan” Audrey said and forcefully fred her hand from .
“I just have one question for you, Audrey. Why were you so shocked when you found me In Rodney’s room?” She asked and my eyes drooped.
“You know, Audrey; it’s not just about forcing yourself on him by pretending to be of help. It’s all about the class and to be sincere, you don’t belong”. Audrey’s eyes flashed with anger as she looked at her.
“Well, I prefer being of help than pretend to be pathetic when there’s nothing wrong with me” she replied and Megan flinched. What?
“And what’s that supposed to mean?” Megan asked.
“Don’t give a thought to It Megan. I think she’s just trying to defend the fact that she’s a loser” I chipped in.
“Well, I prefer being a loser than being a slave” she said and I fumed and held her shirt roughly, making her stomach exposed.
“What did you say?” I asked angrily, still holding her shirt.
She tried freeing her shirt from my grasp but couldn’t. Then, she pushed me back
and I almost fell on the floor.
My anger increased and I tried getting back at her.
“Edith!” Megan called raucously and I turned to look at her.
Why has she been quiet the whole time?
I looked at her and noticed she was looking like a ghost. “Let’s go” she added and scurried away and I followed her. Why was she acting that way?
She kept running until we got to an isolated area and that was when she stopped, panting heavily.
“Megan, what’s going on? She insulted me for God’s sake. Why did you ask me to let her be?” I asked angrily and at the same time, confused.
She remained mute with a pale expression. She looked like someone who was scared to death.
“Megan, what’s going on? Tell me, what happened?” I demanded more curiously and she finally spoke up.
Her voice was filled with so much fear.
“Edith, do…do you remember the day you had asked me if there was something I could use to recognise Jocelyn?” She asked tearfully and I nodded. “Y…Yes, I do” now replied, now becoming a little scared as well.
“Do you remember what my reply was?”
“Well, you told me there was a mark on her tummy; just the same as yours”.
The angst on her face increased as she stared into my eyes.
“Edith” she called; her voice shaking.
“I…I just saw that same mark on Audrey’s tummy”.
Now, the fun begins.
