Chapter Thirty Four

 

 

 

 

 

 

AS soon as Dr Sujit had dropped Sharuna at school, he zoomed off

 

 

Sharuna quickly walked into the building and straight to her tutor’s office

 

 

“Good morning ma’am”, she greeted as soon as she entered

 

 

“Morning Sharuna, how are you?”, she smiled

 

 

“I’m fine ma’am. Please, I want to take permission to leave the premises, just for a few hours. I have something very urgent and important to attend to”, she pleaded, her two palms rubbing against each other

 

 

The woman looked at her

 

 

“No problem, you can go but make sure you get back as soon as possible ok?”

 

 

“Okay ma’am, thank you so much. I will be back before you know it”, and she hurriedly left the office

 

 

She was glad Priceley hadn’t come yet

 

 

She walked to the road and hailed down a cab, then she boarded

 

 

And straight to her mom’s boutique

 

 

***********************

 

 

Henrietta was dusting the clothes and placing them in their right places in the hangers and mannequins when a cab pulled up at the front of the boutique

 

 

She could see it clearly, because everywhere was enclosed with glass casing

 

 

Since Vida began working there, she had thought the best way to thank Henrietta for linking her to Dr Sujit, was to ask her to join in growing the boutique

 

 

And since then, they have been working and partnering together

 

 

Business was booming and flourishing

 

 

The glass door opened and Sharuna strode in

 

 

“Ohhhh! Look who we have here”, Henrietta shouted “Sharuna, how are you?”, she asked as they embraced

 

 

“I’m fine aunt Henrietta, and you?”, she asked smiling

 

 

“I’m okay, why you here this early?”, she probed further

 

 

Sharuna shook her head

 

“Nothing much, just came to see mom”

 

 

“That’s good of you”, she continued with her work

 

 

Sharuna looked round

 

“Where’s she?”, she asked

 

 

 

“She’s inside the dressing compartment”

 

 

“Thanks”, and she walked away

 

 

She walked smartly into the dressing compartment, and there her mother was, arranging customers orders ready for delivery

 

 

The dressing compartment was a closet for testing the dress bought by customers, it had mirrors all around.

 

 

“Mom?”, Sharuna called as she ran to embrace her

 

 

“Sweetie”, her mom smiled, wrapping her in an embrace

 

“How are you? And why you here this morning? You were supposed to be in school”, she said

 

 

“Yes Mom, but I needed to see you”, she said as she took out a stool and sat

 

 

“Hope you are okay?”, Vida asked looking her all over

 

 

“I’m fine, it’s just that…..”, she paused, scratching her head

 

 

“Yes?”, she looked at her closely, “you look worried dora, what’s wrong. Tell me”

 

She nudged her

 

 

Sharuna hesitated, her eyes on the floor

 

 

“Mum, I’m caught up in a love triangle”

 

 

Vida sighed

 

“Who’s the third? Priceley?”, she asked

 

 

Sharuna nodded

 

“Yes, he’s seriously coming after me and…….I’m, I’m vulnerable. I can’t help

 

it”

 

 

“You can. Now, look at me dora”, she demanded

 

 

Sharuna raised her head to look at her, tears were already shimmering, threatening to roll

 

 

“Do you love him? I mean Priceley”

 

 

She stuttered, not knowing what to say

 

“I……I’m only developing feelings towards him, but Kesmanee is holding me

 

back, I still feel for him”, she sobbed

 

 

Vida exhaled

 

“Daughter, all you have to do is to follow your heart. It’s your heart, you know what it wants, you know what suits it. Follow it”

 

 

Sharuna nodded

 

 

“I tell you”, Vida continued, “if you and Kesmanee are destined to be, no matter what’s happening right now, it surely gonna be. Believe me”

 

 

She held her shoulders

 

 

“You love Kes, I know that. Then be strong for him, I have this….. feeling that

 

he gonna be back”

 

 

“But mom when? When will that be?”, she flared up, crying hysterically

 

Vida brought her close in an embrace, and consoled her

 

 

“Soon daughter, very soon. Just be strong okay?”

 

 

She nodded and sniffed

 

 

“Now clean those eyes and let me see those sparkling teeth”

 

 

Sharuna smiled

 

“Thanks Mom, I will be on my way soon”

 

 

“Okay. You know what I told you, don’t give up, take care”

 

 

“Bye”, and she drove back to the school

Break hour at school, she was sitted, trying her hands on some practical she was given that morning, when a girl walked up to her

 

 

“Good afternoon ma’am”, the girl greeted, she was holding a fancy lunch pack.

 

 

Sharuna looked at her

 

She recognized her instantly, it was the maid who had come to answer the door at Mr Bennett’s house

 

 

“Yeah, afternoon”

 

 

“I’m sure you know me?”, the girl asked

 

 

 

Sharuna nodded

 

“Yeah, anything?”

 

 

“Well, Mr Priceley sent me to give you this”, she placed the lunch pack on her desk

 

 

Sharuna looked at it

 

“Thanks. Um….. tell him I’m grateful”

 

 

The girl smiled

 

“My pleasure”, and she walked out of the class

 

 

Sharuna sighed

 

Not again!

 

 

She placed the lunch pack on her laps and looked into it

 

 

Hmm

 

She salivated

 

 

The aroma was appetizing

 

 

Chicken and waffles, with a strawberry shortcake and chilled banana juice

 

 

Her stomach rumbled instantly, she couldn’t wait, she began doing justice

 

to the food

She saw Dr Sujit’s car halt at the entrance of her school

 

 

 

She got up

 

 

“Mother Hubbard”, she called the old lady running the store

 

 

“Yes daughter”, the old lady answered, placing her specks well on her eyes

 

 

“My dad is here for me now, I wanna get going”

 

 

“Okay daughter. Take care”, Sharuna hugged the old lady and left

 

 

The woman had begun to like her company and always looked forward to seeing her after the closing hour

 

 

Sharuna crossed the road and walked up to her dad’s car

 

 

“Hey Daddy”, she opened the car and entered

 

“Good afternoon”, she greeted relaxing comfortably on the seat

 

 

Dr Sujit turned to her and smiled

 

“How was today daughter?”

 

 

“Splendid”, she replied

 

 

Dr Sujit revved the car and they hit the road

 

 

“Daughter, I have something to tell you”, he said as they drove

 

 

Sharuna sat up

 

“Huh? What’s that that can’t wait till we get home”

 

 

Dr Sujit stiffened a laugh

 

She must say something

 

“Well, it can’t wait till I get home, I have to say it now”

 

 

“Okay, so shoot”

 

 

He took a deep breath and exhaled

 

 

“I will be away for two weeks, I will be traveling for a function”

 

 

She assimilated the information

 

“So?”

 

 

“I won’t like you to stay home all alone, you would stay with Priceley, I’ve arranged it”

 

 

What!
