Babysitting The Bad


但[Secrets and Romance] 但





β€” Kendra’s POV β€”

“Cole?” I called as I got really close.

“Hey” he cooed and I sat down on the bed beside him.


“How’re you feeling?” I asked starring at him.

“I’m okay I guess” he replied.

We stayed muted for a long while before I finally spoke up.

“Cole, I heard you helped in finding my parents. I called mommy and she confirmed it.”

“So, that was why you knew about me meeting them without telling you. I thought it seems strange but now it’s all making sense to me.”

“Cole, thank you and I’m sorry.”

“Thank you for helping me even when I gave up on them. Sorry because I’m someone that only causes you nothing but pain but the truth is that I do care for you a lot and wouldn’t want you to keep on drinking.”

“You might kill yourself with that, please can you at least stop drinking?” I asked and he nodded slowly.

“I have no option do I? And about your parents I’ll kill Nick for you telling you” he replied and I chuckled.

“Why don’t you want me to no Cole? Huh! Why do you wanna keep it all to yourself?’ I questioned.

“Then, I didn’t want you to continue pretending towards me about your feelings and secondly I wanted you to leave Salvador’s mansion. That is the main reason to be truthful” he revealed.

I chuckled again.

“You know you’re something else but cole, um.. I don’t know if I should be saying this but there is someone out there for you.”


“She loves you more…”


“Are you talking about that your friend?” He cut me in smirking.

“Come on cole, can’t you just pretend not to no till I’m done” I frowned and slapped his leg.

“Ouch! What was that for? I’m only…”


“Just give her a chance” I cut him in now.


He scoffed again.

“She’s not as pretty as you” he replied looking elsewhere.

“Cole? Stop it, I’m not kidding alright. Please let’s get serious” I begged.

“Well, I don’t no. I still like you and don’t think its going anyway anytime soon” he replied now gazing downward to his leg.

“Cole, I know but please just…”

“I will, I’ll try because it’s you. I know you can’t deceive me so I’ll give it a shot” he cut in again and I smiled.

“Thank you and sorry. But trust me I do love and care for you a whole lot” I said spreading my arms apart to describe it.

He smiled back.

“No need to be sorry ken. I understand everything well” he smiled more broadly.

The door opened and Rico came in and stood behind me.

“Hey, what are you two saying?” Rico asked akimbo.

“I was just confessing my feelings to her and I’m also letting her know that I won’t leave her” Cole replied making me confused.

I turned and looked at Rico and he has an angry look on but he surprised me by laughing.

Even cole laughed.

“What was that?” I asked now on my feet.

“Are you using such things to jokes?” I asked starring from cole to Rico.

“Come on ken” Rico laughed and wrapped one of his arms around my neck.

I scoffed and remove his arm and walked out.


Rico’s POV

I laughed again as she left.


“Yea, looking at it now it seems you two look good together” cole said making me turn my attention to him.


“You don’t have to say that to make me feel better you no” I cooed taking a sit by the side of the



‘I’m saying the truth, damn” he replied.

“Cole” I called.

“Yes” he answered.

“Can you promise me one thing?” I asked.

“Promise you’ll never keep a secret from me no matter if it’ll hurt me or not. Can you do that?” I added.

He sighed and nodded.

“Yea, I promise” he smiled and I nodded.

“Second thing you’ve got to promise me is to always be happy and let go of your drinking act cause I’ve done that. Not entirely tho I can still take a shot without anyone knowing” I said

almost whispering and he laughed.

“Okay I’ll try alright. I’ll try” he replied.

And I heard someone name in your conversation.

“Yea kora, that girl that works for your parents. I don’t really understand them tho but I heard she loves me” he replied and I laughed.

“So? Are you gonna be getting married to her?” I teased and he eyed me.

“I barely no her and I won’t be speaking about her if not for Kendra’s sake but I’ll try and get married to her then” he joked and we both laughed.

The door opened revealing Nick.

Cole’s mood changed instantly as he walked in.

“What do you want? Aren’t you getting out?” Cole asked immediately.

“Cole, I just came to check up on you. Mom called and…she asked me of you” Nick replied.



“Tell her I’m good and better off without you” cole replied him.

“Um…okay” Nick replied starring at the floor.

“What are you doing? Aren’t you leaving? Have you apologized to Rico for your stupid acts?” Cole questioned.

“Well, I’m not gonna be apologizing to anyone” Nick replied.

“Have you gone nuts?” Cole half yelled.

“Until you forgive me am not apologizing to him” he insisted.

“Then go. Out!!” Cole yelled but he stayed still.

“Hey, calm down bro. Leave him be, his still your brother” I chipped in.

“And Nick doesn’t have to apologize cause he was the one that made me come to you so I’ve forgiven for that” I said.

Cole rolled his eyes and laid down properly.

“You can stand and watch me sleep then” he said referring to Nick and I smiled.

He knows how to punish him. Nick was already in tears but he cared less.

“I’ll get going now” I announced standing.

“You two solve this shit before tomorrow” I added and left.



Few hours later I was inside Kendra’s room with her.

We came home together and I decided to bring her to her room and now I’m finding it hard to leave.

She sat in front of the mirror and parked her hair up trying to unhook her necklace but couldn’t.

“I need a hand here Rico” she beckoned on me and I went to her and started unhooking the necklace from the back but I wasn’t concentrated on it but on her exposed back.

Damn it looks so fresh and soft to the hands.



I could eat it as meat.

“Hey!” She called and turned to look at me.

“What are you doing?” She asked starring at me and our faces were just inches apart.

So I did it. I cupped her cheeks and kissed her.
