Episode 16



Madison’s POV


“I have to take care of something”he said stumping away…did I do something wrong again?


I sighed and stood up and walked away from the garden,I went back to class and hugged sadly placing me head on my desk as soon as I got to my seat


“How’d it go”Crystal asked and I raised my head up with a sad sigh


“He just..left”I said with a shrug and Bianca frowned


“What do you mean”Crystal asked


“Well,I did see him in the garden and then he asked me since when I’ve i had my baby said 2 years and then he said “what’s the name of the lucky guy” and I said Mitchell”


“Wait…what lucky guy?”Bianca asked


“ son”


“You think its your son he’s talking about and there’s a possibility he’s talking about your boyfriend or should I say ex”Crystal said and I gasped…that might be true


“Oh my God”I gasped


“ the next time you get to talk to him,the first thing you should do is to tell him you were talking about your son and you don’t I repeat you don’t have a it?”Bainca said and I nodded


Romeo’s POV


I’ve made up my mind not to get too close to Abby anymore so as not to get hurt..I have no chance with her so I’ll just stick to my “girlfriend”


Mum has been gone for a day and I guess she’s been busy..since the greatest competition of all times is coming up soon,jeez I need a shower and I also need to call her



I dialed her number and thank God she picked “my baby”she cooed


“mummy”I whined and she laughed



“I’m sorry for not telling you before I travelled”



“no problem mum..where are you



“Russia..settling things in preparation of the competition “ooh


“ how’s my baby doing



“I’m…I’m not fine mum



“what happened



“why didn’t you tell me you knew Abby mum “ you found out


“Yeah..and I heard you’re also sponsoring her..that’s nice of you “Merci”she said in a french accent and i smiled “but…



“but what



“mum…she..she has a son mum..and hurts so damn much I laid on the bed with a loud sigh and I heard her chuckle



“and why exactly are you hurt



“well,if she has a son that mean she has a boyfriend or a husband



“okay…so you’re hurt because you wanna be her boyfriend or husband I can swear she’s smirking right now


“well,I..I uh





I sighed and face palmed myself



“okay fine…I wanted to be more than a friend to her,I wanted her to love me..I wanted to be her..her man


“wait…so does this love her


I sighed in frustration..this woman would taunt me to death if I should say the truth



“um..I think I do



“aarrrrrrghhhh”she squealed so loud loud almost blocking my ear drums…I bet she’s jumping round the house right now


“finally,my baby is in love..oh my goody goody


Sometimes mum acts like a baby..what the hell is goody goody..gosh I have one hell of a mum



“you have to tell her ASAP



“not happening mum






“yeah..she has a son-a two year old at that



“how did you know



“well,we talked and she told me she he’s 2years old and I asked the lucky guy’s name and she said Michelle”


I called the name with disgust and mum bursted into laughter..she paused for a while and she resumed her laughter..and its getting annoying



“mum”I whined



“sorry sorry…she said Mitchell right?


I hummed and she chuckled



“you know what,I think you’re being a baby…and I’m pretty sure you haven’t had a heart to heart talk with her..all I’m going to say is that,talk to her..not just some petty talk but a heart to heart kind of a talk,then you’ll find your answers


“what do you mean



“I’m not repeating myself…just do as I if you would excuse me,I’ve got business to attend to..don’t forget momma loves you


“love you to mum..



“bye lover boy..gosh my baby is in…


I hanged up before she could squeal the “L” word into my ears again..I said I think I’m in love with her not I’m in love with her..gosh!


I’m not talking to anyone..I’ve gotten heartbroken enough,its until she tells me the first time she and “Michelle”had sΒ£x before I learn my lesson


I’m sleepy not talking..I’m just gonna admire her form afar..I guess I’ll just wait for the feelings to go


I rubbed the back of my neck and went into the bathroom..operation try your best to avoid I come


I hope I don’t die during the curse





Madison’s POV


I’m gonna die..sorry,I’m dead,I’m dying…I have died..I’m DEAD!!!!


Romeo has been avoiding me like a plague for the past one week,its killing me… I text him,he doesn’t reply..even if he does he treats me like some stranger,sometimes her doesn’t come to school and I’m very sure he’s doing that to avoid me,I don’t know what I did


I really wanna hear his voice again..I miss his smile,I miss him-a lot


“Stop putting on this long face Abby,he’ll come around”Crystal said and i scoffed


“You’ve been telling me that for the past 7days…when exactly is he gonna come around..I wanna see him”I groaned and I laid on the grass


“I wonder what’s up with him..i tried calling him but he doesn’t pick and sometimes it doesn’t connect”Bianca said


“I’m fed up…the competition is in 3days and I’m not even in the right state of mind…I just wanna talk to him and say I’m sorry for whatever I did that is making him avoid me,is that too much to ask”


“Hey Abby chill,don’t worry,I have a feeling you’ll both get to talk.”Crystal said


“You sure?”


“Not 100 percent but I believe”she said and I nodded with a small sigh..I hope so,i just wanna talk to him


I got home from school really tired,I made dinner and petted Mitch to sleep…He’s not sleeping anyways just cuddling with his teddy bear


I slumped on my bed with my gaze on my phone wishing I’ll see a call with “Romeo” written boldly as the caller,I think I have to put my pride aside and text him


Yeah..I’ll do that


I went to whatsapp and clicked on his messages..I took a deep breath before I started punching my feelings out with the keyboard



I finished typing and I was contemplating wether to send or not when Mitchell turned and in the process,pushed my hand to the send button


“No no no”I screamed staring furiously at my phone..okay calm down least he’ll know you miss him and you’re sorry for whatever you might have done..yeah..deep breaths Maddy,don’t freak out


I tried to stand up but I felt a sharp pain at my lower abdomen..I stood up properly and the pain please don’t tell me its today..I reached for my phone and checked the calendar..holy Christmas it’s today


This is bad this is really bad..the pain worsened and I slumped on the ground


“Ouch”I winced out in pain and Mitch came running to me


“Mama what’s wrong”he asked and I couldn’t reply,the pain was too unbearable..I couldn’t even move my legs..all I did was to groan and wince


“Mama..”He called with concern in his voice..I need to call someone but I can’t even move my hands,my phone is on the bed


“”I cried out-louder and more pain filled this time..I was already crying with my hands clutched tightly round my tummy


“Mama…mama your tummy?”he asked with tears welling up in his eyes and I nodded


“Mama”he called placing his little hands on my tummy rubbing it softly


“It hurts”I winced and he wailed….Mrs.Russ isn’t coming home today,she and her


kids went to visit her mum who is sick..why did this devil choose to come today of all days?


I was still wincing in pain when I heard my phone ring..thank God..I hope its Bianca or Crystal


“Mama..your phone”



“Go..go..b..bring…”i strained out my voice and it seems he got the message because he hurried to where my phone was and brought it to me..I didn’t even check who the called was,I just picked it


“Abby”I heard Romeo’s voice


“Ro…ro..ouch”I winced with tears streaming down my eyes


“Abigail,what’s wrong what’s happening..are you okay”


“Mama..mama tummy hurts”Michelle screamed and I was grateful for that


“Your tummy hurts?..okay I’m coming right now,I’ll be there in a sec”




That came out as a whisper filled with pain


“’re gonna be okay..”Mich assured and I held his hands..Romeo a hold come quick..I’m dying here


Romeo’s POV


“I’m fed up with your childishness that even an excuse?”Ken fired and I rolled my eyes


“What exactly do you want me to do then”I fired back


“How about you get your shit together and stop behaving like a d** to her or better still go to her place and talk to her face to face…why would you say you’re trying to get rid of your feelings by avoiding her..look that’s a bad decision..who cares if she has a kid or some are Romeo Grande,getting a girl isn’t hard”


“I don’t wanna get her like that,I wanna make her fall in love with me,make her feel the same way I feel about her”


“Well,how do you intend doing that by sitting here,sucking on some chocolate bar


with a bottle of Vodka..look,you’re getting to Abby or I cut your balls


off and give it to her as a gift”




“You’re insane”


“ are the insane one here..look,dude just get your act together mhen”


“I’ll think about it”


I took my helmet and exited the bar


“Think about it?..I don’t want you to think i want you to take actions..go get the girl”he screamed trailing behind me and I sighed as I got on my bike


“Look,I drank quite a lot and I’m tired,I need a good night sleep..we’ll talk about this tomorrow okay”


“You never listen”he huffed and I laughed as I wore my helmet


“I know..see ya buddy”I sped off with a smirk on my face..Ken Ken Ken…such a trouble


I got home and I started undressing as soon as I got to the front door..I’m really exhausted


I glanced at my phone and i have 15 missed calls from Tiana..I hissed and threw my phone on the bed slumping on it with a thud,mum hasn’t called since the very day I told her I didn’t have a “heart to heart” talk with Abby


I have to admit it..I miss damn much,I just wanna see her and hug her and kiss her and..jeez Romeo slow down on the daydreams


I wanted to stand up but I got stopped by the ding sound of my phone I took it and oh..its a WhatsApp message,from..from Abby Its a whatsapp message from Abby!!!


Oh My God..calm down Romeo just read


I clicked on the message and I read her message…




Um..hi Romeo,how are you doing?Great right?well if you ask me I’m not fine..what did I do?



Romeo is there’s one way or the other I’ve wronged you please let’s talk about it..I don’t like being avoided especially by the person I cherish and means so much to me


I really wanna see you..I miss your smile and your crackheadness-if that’s a thing I really wish we could talk..I feel as if I broke your heart or I did something terrible to you,I wanna see you please


I’ve been really miserable the past one week without you and..and..please let’s just talk I’m begging


I miss you



I smiled at the last part..she left s heart..not just any heart but a red heart


I also miss you Abby and I feel really guilty..I can’t believe I’ve hurt her this much


I took one last look at her number before j clicked on call


It ringed for sometime before she picked








My heart races 20times faster when I heard her pain filled something wrong with her,is she hurt?



“”Abigail,what’s wrong what’s happening..are you okay”I asked hurriedly,eager to know what exactly is wrong



“mama..mama tummy hurts”I heard the little boy’s voice and I spranged up to my feet


“Your tummy hurts?..okay I’m coming right now,I’ll be there in a sec”I quickly picked up my bike keys and I rushed out of my room


“hurry”she said in a fragile whisper and I hanged up


I raced down the stairs and in a flash,I got on my back and sped off like my life depends on it


Hang on Abby,I’m coming
