Episode 6



Madison’s POV


I yawned as I sat up from the bed,I raised my head up to the wall clock and its 6am..I gotta get Mich ready for school.I’ve informed Madam Oliver of my absence today,I didn’t tell her the real reason I just told her my mum is sick and I need to stay with her


I got up from bed and made for the kitchen..I guess I’ll make Spaghetti and Meatballs this morning..I placed the water filled pot on the burning gas cooker and went to the bathroom..I quickly brushed my teeth and went to check the water and its already boiling..I pored the pasta into the boiling water and made for the bedroom…took my bathroom and woke up Michelle


“I wanna sleep”he mumbled in his sleepy voice and I carried him up



“You’re going to school today you know”I said as I carried him into the bathroom..I took his bathe and dressed him up..oops,I almost forgot about the food I’m cooking


I went to the kitchen and sieved the already cooked pasta..I prepared the sauce for it and mixed them together


I also prepared meatballs and ding!..meal’s done


I packed it into Mich’s lunch bag and I cleared the kitchen..I glanced at my wrist watch and its already 7.20am,how time flies


“Come in Michelle let’s go”I carried him and made for the door..we exited the house and I locked the door before proceeding to hail a cab…seems Mrs Russ has gone to work already


“Now be a good boy at school so I’ll buy you Popsicle okay?”I said and he nodded


“I want..two”he demonstrated a “two”with his fingers and i nodded with a smile


“That’s if you behave in school”


“Okay mama”


I dropped him off in his class and left the school premises.I hailed a cab back home and I slumped on the sofa immediately I got back home


I guess I’ll be waiting for Alexa’s the mean time,I have to clean the house


And also I have to find a safe place to keep the money before I take it to the bank..hmm let’s see,oh..I’ll keep it under the bed


I reached to where I placed the envelope and I kept it under the bed..the bed is super thick and huge so no one would know there’s something under it Now that that’s settled,I need to clean the house


After an hour of intensive cleaning,the door bell finally rang and i went to open it…I opened the door revealing a grey haired man..probably in his fifties


“Good morning ma’am”ma’am? ma’am?I’m just nineteen


“Good morning sir”



“You must be Miss Abigail,Madam Alexa told me to bring you”


“Yes,um..let me just grab my bag and change”I said and he nodded


“You can come in”I said as I left the door for him to enter


“I’ll be right back”


I scurried to my room and roamed my eyes round my wardrobe..what to wear?..I can’t go meet a person as influential as Alexa looking like a old rag


Okay..I think this will do..its a black long sleeved turtle neck gown that stopped right above my knees clinging tight to my body not hiding a single curve..


I took a white sneakers and a white scarf..I combed my hair and packed it upwards,I applied a little lip gloss and took my handbag..satisfied with my look,I went out of my room to the sitting room


“Shall we?”I said and the man nodded


He led me to the car and helped me with the door


“Thank you”


He got in and started the car as well hit the road….after one hour drive,we got to


our destination..the automatic gate opened as we approached it and my breath got stuck in my throat as I got down from the car


This place is paradise…the compound is so huge…cars packed at every corner,3 water fountains…beautiful flowers adding to the beauty


I raised my head up to the beautiful cream coloured mansion before me and a wow escaped from my mouth..this building is mesmerizing


“This way miss”The chauffeur said jolting me out of my period of admiration


I followed him into the house and OMG…is Alexa this rich?The inside looks much more beautiful than the outside,this place is so sparkly,I’m afraid my leg would break the floor because it’s pure glass



“I can see you’re here”I heard Alexa’s voice and I looked up and there she was,coming down the stairs with a glass of wine in her hands


“Good morning ma’am”I greeted


“Morning my dear,Maximus you can leave now”she said and the chauffeur bowed and left


“Come with me”she said as she left the way with me trailing behind her like a Lost sheep


We finally came to a stop in a beautiful garden


“Have a seat”she said pointing to a chair in front of her


“Thank you”I said as I sat down,she sat down in front of me and she placed her wine on the table in between us


Shortly,some people who I assume to be maids came in with bottle of wine and two glasses and also,a tray of doughnuts


“You drink?”she asked and I shook my head negatively


“No ma’am”I replied and she smiled


“No problem,they are all nonalcoholic


She poured me a glass and I politely took it taking a sip..hmm strawberry


“So…Abigail”she began and I took my glass from my lip


“Where did you learn to cook like that?”


I cleared me throat before I answered


“Well,its like a talent”I replied and she smiled


“Why did you change your identity”she asked and my heart skipped a beat..does she know who I truly I’m?


“Um…I don’t know what you’re…



“I know you’re Madison Campbell and not Abigail Maxwell”she cut in and I inhaled sharply…she knows my identity?well,there goes my luck


“You do?”


“Yes I do..and I also know what happened a year ago” I bowed my head in shame without altering a word Unexpectedly,she held my hand and I raised my head up


“Was that why you changed your identity?”she asked and I nodded


“What really happened?”she asked and I sighed as I remembered all that happened,the shame,the disappointment I brought upon my family


“Well,I guess I was blinded by love I couldn’t see who he truly was”I said


“Your boyfriend back then?”she asked and I nodded


“Jackson and I started dating 8months before the incident,at that time I saw him as my life,I do much loved him that I would do anything to make him happy including,giving him my virginity…I thought giving him would make him love me more but…I was wrong”I sniffed back the tears and wiped the one on my face away


“I was really wrong,I didn’t know he was a monster,I didn’t know he only wanted to get under my skirt,I didn’t know he only wanted to disgrace me…he took my virginity and fled,that’s not even the worst..the worst part is that he leaked my nudes to the public…he made me look like a word,a slut,he made me look like a pornstar”the tears were already flowing freely as I talked,I remember the pain he made me go through,I remember how he made everyone turn their backs against me..I remember how Clara mocked me…the main question here is why…why would he do that?I’ve been a really good girlfriend to him,I loved him more than I loved myself,I adored him,I made sure he’s happy so why would he repay me like that..I just don’t get it


“So sorry dear,its okay stop crying”she said as she rubbed my hands soothingly…I sniffed and wiped my tears



“Then how did you get here?Did you run away from home?”


“No..3 weeks after the incident I found out I was mum told me to abort it but I said no..the baby isn’t the cause of my misfortune so why would I…I had to do some jobs to take care of myself and the baby because the parents weren’t fending me again..months passed,I gave birth to my baby…I was so happy when I had him..but the worst happened when my parents especially my mum insisted on me selling my child to an orphanage”she gasped with her hands on her mouth


“Why would they insist that,an orphanage?…that’s inhuman..the child has a mother”she said with irritation


“That was exactly what I said but they paid deaf ears…but I also stood my ground that I won’t and I can never sell my child and my mum said the worst”


“What is that”


“She said if I won’t sell him then I should leave her house”


“Oh my God,that’s so harsh”


“Yeah…but I told her no problem..I’ll leave her house and I’ll leave New York”


“So..that’s how you moved to Texas?”


“Yeah…my brother tried to talk me out of it but..I had already made my up mind”


“You have a brother?”


“Yeah…the best brother I could ever ask for,he was the one that stood by me when others reprimanded me…he was the one that made me have hope..when I even relocated to Texas he sends me money so I could take care of myself and Michelle,my son”


“Hmm,so its a boy”she said with a grin and I chuckled with a nod



“So that’s how I’ve been living ever since,with the help of God I got a job at Olivers and I’m able to pay my house rent,enroll Michelle to school and also feed us”


“You’re a really strong girl Madison”


I smiled and said


“Thanks ma’am”


“You’re really strong,I don’t know how many girls that went through what you went through that are like you…some would have became nonentities,some would have became prostitutes,some would even abort the baby but you stood your ground..that’s really brave of you”


“Thank you ma’am”


“I have something for you”she said as she reached for an envelope at the side of the table,she reached inside the envelope and brought out a paper She stretched it to me and I collected it with a bow


I stared at it and I saw ALEXA GRANDES CATERING SCHOOL written in bold at the eyes roamed down the paper and I saw different things like… NAME:








This looks like a…a form?




“That’s a form to my school..if you wanna attend


“Oh my God…yes…yes!!..thank you ma’am..thank you so much ma’am”I squealed almost kneeling down as I thanked her


“Its okay”she said as she pulled me up..tears were already in my eyes,I can’t believe this..I’m holding a form to my dream school



“You’re really emotional…now you’re crying?”I smiled as i cleaned my tears


“I’m just so happy”


“I know…so all you have to do I to fill it,and don’t worry about expenses..I’ll provide everything you need,books,any type of fee,allowance,anything..I’ll take care of it”she said and i couldn’t stop thanking her and my stars that directed this helper to me..


“Thank you ma’am”


“I said its fill the form”she said stretching a pen to me.I collected the pen and I started filling the necessary information..done with the form filling,I gave her the form and she smiled


“Come have lunch before you go”she said as she took my hand and walked back to the house


“So you’ll resume tomorrow or next week?”


“Um..I think I’ll resume next week”I said and she nodded in understanding


“My chauffeur will drive you home when you’re done with you food”she said and i nodded as I took a spoon filled lasagna into my mouth


“Bye Mr.Maximus”I waved at the chauffeur as he drove away..I’m back home and Mrs.Russ has already picked Mitchell from school I knocked on her door and she opened


“Hey Madison,back from Work?”she hasn’t known about all that have been happening..I’ll tell her soon


“Yeah..where’s Michelle”


“Mama”I heard him squeal from inside and I smiled


“Speak of the devil”


“Mama”he squealed as he ran towards me.


“Hey bunny”I said as I carried him up


“You’re back”he giggled as he wrapped his small hands round my neck


“He was a little of a trouble today”Mrs Russ said and I laughed


“Is that true Michelle?”I,asked and he giggled burying his face in my chest


“Thanks Mrs Russ”I said and she smiled




I left Mrs Russ place and went to my apartment..I dropped Mich on the sofa and I made for the kitchen to get a glass of water


Hmm…I promised Jay I would call dad today,I guess I would call him now..I pulled out my phone from my handbag and punched in his number and clicked on rang and I inhaled goes nothing


“hello..who’s this?



“hey dad”I said lowly






“how are you dad



“oh my God Madison!!!”he shrieked and i smiled..he must have missed me a lot



“Princess how are you,how have you everything okay,how are you coping,how’s your baby?”he bombarded me with questions without giving me space to answer any of them



“hold on dad”I switched to video call and jeez…is this my dad?..he looks old and..kinda miserable..he looks my dad okay?


“Dad”I called almost crying



“princess,its really’re really there



“yes dad…but..what happened to you”he sighed with a sad smile



“I guess I’ve missed you a lot it did a lot of bad things to my health..but now that I’m talking to you and I’m seeing you,I’m happy”


“how is your child”



“He’s fine



“I bet he would have grown into a big boy



“yeah..let me call him for you”



“Michelle,Michelle come over here”I called and he took quick steps to where I was..he snuggled up to me and I carried him on my laps


“Say hello to grandpa”I said and he looked at the phone screen confused..well,why won’t he,this is the first time I’m mentioning his grandpa


“Hi grandpa”he said lowly and dad smiled



“Hey little guy how are you?”



“I’m fine”



“What’s your name?”






“Hmm Michelle hope you’re not troubling your mommy”



“Nah..I’m a good boy”


Dad laughed at his boldness and I smiled



“You’re a smart boy”



“Thank you grandpa”



“I’ll speak to you later okay”



“Okay..bye grandpa”






“Okay..go play with your phone”I said and he got down from my laps



“He has your eyes”





He sighed and chuckled softly



“Look,princess I’m sorry..I’m sorry for all the sorrow I’ve brought upon you,I know the past one year won’t have been easy for you,you would have gone through a lot and its my fault..if I had not allowed you to go you wouldn’t have gone through a lot,I would have provided everything you needed..I’m sorry..if I had the power to reverse time i would have…



“Its okay dad…its not your’s nobody’s fault so don’t blame were just being a good parent”



“_its just..I..I don’t even..I’m just sorry okay”he said with tears falling from his,dad is crying in my presence



“Dad its okay,it really fine…I’m doing fine and so is Michelle..and besides if I hadn’t left home,things are really going well for us


“I should have stopped you from going ..I failed in that part



“its fine…really


I thought of telling him everything that happened..from the first day Alexa came to my work place and to today that Alexa gave me scholarship..but I waved it off,he can’t know..not now


“Where are you staying,let me come visit you”



“Dad,you don’t need to,its not necessary”



“I,don’t worry about your expense or anything,I’ll start sending you..oh,let me even send money to you right now”


“Thanks Dad,but I have enough..don’t bother”I said and he chuckled



“I just wanna do this to make up for what I did”



“I know..the more important thing now is that I’m talking to you,that’s enough



“Thank you princess”



“You’re’s mum”I said and he nodded



“she’s fine..”



“hope you’re taking care of her?



“yeah I am”I hummed a okay



“I’m just so glad I get to speak to you and at the same time see your face,I’ve never been so happy in my life”



“I’m glad I get to speak with you too dad…you don’t know how much I’ve missed you”


“I’ve missed you too princess..I gotta go now…I’ll call you later”



“Okay bye dad…love you”



“Love you too princess”
