THE BILLIONAIRE’S SURROGATE

 

 

CHAPTER THIRTY-FIVE

 

 

ATTEMPT ON THE BOY’S LIFE |

 

Seeing the boy leave in sadness,Andre wasn’t happy,

 

Not that he didn’t want to take the boy to the Fair, just that he wanted Justin to go meet Gianna and Reid,

 

He wanted his son to meet his mother and his twin brother.

 

He’d promised Gianna he will let her meet the boy,so he wanted to use their birthday as a great opportunity to reunite mother and son.

 

But since the boy want to go to the Fair, hell allow him,

 

He left his room and headed to the boy’s room.

 

The door wasn’t locked,so he opened it,

 

Justin was sitting on the floor,with back facing the door.

 

“How dare you enter my room without knocking?” Justin asked the intruder, Thinking it was one of the maids.

 

He picked his dart and threw it at the person not looking back.

 

Andre seeing the dart come towards him,he caught it with his hand right before the dart hit him.

 

 

“Is that how you welcome your father into your room?” Andre asked the boy turned and saw his father,

 

He stood up immediately and went to the man, “Daddy.”

 

The man placed his hands on his son’s head, “You want to go to the Fair?” He asked him, The boy shook his head,

 

“Don’t worry,I’ll take you there tomorrow.” The boy’s face lit up,

 

“Yeah,I’ll come back home early tomorrow and we’ll both go there.” He announced,

 

The wrapped his arms around his father in a tight hug,

 

“Thanks daddy.”

 

Seeing the boy happy,his mood lightened, Wish Reid is as soft and nice as his brother.

 

The next day,Andre went to the office like always but came home earlier.

 

The boy was waiting for him at the gazebo and immediately the man came out from his car,

 

He rushed to him and both father and son went inside not minding stares fromThe Old Man and Jasmine.

 

Awhile later,the duo came out with matching outfits, clutching his mini bag ,Justin took his father’s hand and they both got into his Bentley and was driven away.

 

People couldn’t take their eyes off them as they walked through the VIP pass. “Such a handsome pair.”

 

“Is he married? I don’t mind be his mistress and he sire me some cute offspring.”

 

Women and ladies were drooling as the father and son passed.

 

Andre paid deaf ears to all the comment,taking his son closer,

 

They swayed their way past the crowd.

 

As they walled around looking for what best to do there,

 

Justin spotted two familiar figures walking towards them and he frowned,

 

Why can’t I just enjoy a peaceful birthday without this two witches coming to ruin it before it starts?

 

“Uncle!” The younger of the girls ran to Andre,he scooped the girl of about six years up while the older girl who’s eighteen watched as the man carried her sister with great happiness.

 

The girls are his father’s cousins from his maternal side.

 

Their father and his grandmother were siblings before the latter passed away. The girl,Enya and Enxi Smith are the only daughters of Smiths family and were treated with great care and showered lot of love.

 

Andre was very fond of Enya cause she looks a lot like his mom and had been his greatest solace when she passed away.

 

“Justin,I heard today’s your birthday,” The older girl said while Justin looked at her and her sister with great disdain.

 

“Happy Birthday boy.” She ruffled his hair.

 

“Uncle,I want ice cream then I want to play with those plushies.” The younger girl pointed to the Plushies at the arcade shops,

 

Seeing her being carried by his father made Justin so angry and jealous.

 

“Hmm,let’s go get your ice cream first then I’ll get you those plushies.” Andrea said to the girl,

 

The trio walked towards the Ice Cream Parlour while Justin slowly walked behind so that his father would notice him and call him but Andre was so engrossed with the little girl and her sister he forgot about his son.

 

I hate these girls.

 

 

Seeing his father walk away without calling him,Justin hastened his step and caught up with them as they got into the Ice Cream Parlour.

 

“Justin,you stay here with Enxi,I and Enya would get you guys some ice cream.” Andre said,keeping the lil girl on the chair,

 

Why can’t the demon take care of her self?

 

The adults left before he’d a chance to answer,

 

Him not wanting to talk to the girl,took out a seat farther from hers and sat down there staring at his watch.

 

“Let me have a look at your watch.” Enxi stood up and walked to him, He ignored her completely,

 

She frowned,

 

“I want to have a look at it.” She forcefully dragged his hand,

 

Feeling annoyed at her rude behavior,he took his hands from hers forcefully.

 

“Let go of me you monster.” He blurted,

 

“Go and get your….”

 

Hearing him say those hurtful words and calling her a monster,she got angry, Then rushed forward and bit his arms,

 

“Aargh!” Justin pushed her away and she fell down,hitting her head on the table’s feets.

 

Andre and Enya came back to see Enxi wailing uncontrollably on the floor while Justin stood by and watched in confusion too.

 

The bitten area had a sore and very painful mark but he didn’t want to cry like this girl,

 

But soon,he wished he’d cried like she did,

 

‘What happened here?” Andre asked,taking the child up, The more he consoled,the louder she wailed.

 

 

‘What happened to you?” Enya asked her sister, The girl pointed at Justin,

 

“He pushed me away.” She said,

 

Justin frowned,

 

What a little liar?

 

Why isn’t she telling them she’d bitten him earlier?

 

She’s a liar.

 

Andre turned to his son,

 

“Did you push her away?” He asked the boy,

 

“Dad…..she..”

 

“Did you push her? Yes or no.” Andre asked more sternly,

 

The little guy wanted to lie but he kknew his father,

 

Eventually, he’ll find out and will punish him severely for telling a lie,

 

So he nodded,

 

“Yes.”

 

“Uncle let’s call the ambulance, Enxi had sustained a head injury and it’s bleeding.” Enya said,

 

Her sister might be a troublesome pest but that shouldn’t have warrant Justin pushing her to the floor and making her hurt herself.

 

Enya brought out her cell and called the Emergency ,

 

Soon after,the ambulance came and Enxi was carried to a stretcher.

 

“Uncle please go with me,I’m scared.” The girl cried,

 

As Andre walked into the ambulance, he caught sight of someone, Principal Lee,

 

What’s the man doing here?

 

 

“Manager Lee,someone’s looking for you down there.” A man rushed up to the principal and told him,Andre overheard the conversation.

 

“Who’s that?” He asked the staff,

 

“Well it’s a little boy,says his name his Reid.” The man replied,

 

The principal froze,

 

“The boss is here.” He muttered as he followed the man.

 

“Boss?

 

Who’s this boss?

 

And which Reid are they referring to?

 

He wanted to get down from the ambulance and go confront the men but Enxi’s little hands pulled him back,

 

“Uncle,you’re not leaving me right?” The girl asked him,he turned to her and smiled.

 

“No.” He sat beside her.

 

“Justin,come in side let’s go.” He said to his son who stood outside the ambulance and looked at them like they were strangers.

 

“No,I’m not going with her,she’s bad.” TThe boy blurted pointing at Enxi who was lying on the stretcher with a white cloth wrapped around her head.

 

“Justin get inside.” He ordered firmly but the boy stood his ground

 

Why was he given two hardhearted sons?

 

“No,you chose her over me,so I’m not going with you.” The boy turned and left,

 

Andre came out immediately the boy left,seeing him get blend in the crowd,

 

He called two staffs,

 

 

“Keep a close eye on my son for me till I get back.” He ordered then got back into the ambulance as it drove away.

 

Not that he didn’t care about the boy,

 

He trusted the boys abilities.

 

He might not be a genius like Reid but the boy’s strong and smart, he can defend himself any where.

 

When Justin was sure the car had left,he sat by a corner, I hate birthdays,

 

What’s the use of having one when your father chose another kid to you.

 

He picked up a pebble and threw it to the empty space in front of him.

 

His watch beeped,he looked at it

 

His watch was pairing with another via Bluetooth Connectivity.

 

He check the second party with his GPS tracker and it shows the person was in the Fair and very close by.

 

Justin stood up from the seat and looked around,

 

He saw no one suspicious but his watched continued beeping.

 

He was about turning it off when his eyes met a mother and son duo not far from him.

 

The boy looks exactly like him from far.

 

He stood up quickly and went in the direction the mother and son duo had taken.
