After walking out of the bar I was still in daze.


“It’s you?” Leon said.


“Do….do you know me?” I asked.


“Oh’s the guy from yesterday!” Ruth whispered to me.


“Let’s go Kelvin” Leon said walking away in haste.


“No wait please….” I ran in front of him blocking his way.


“Move…..” he said


“No please…..I….I need your help” I said


“Sorry I don’t have help to render” he said coldly about to walk away again but I grab his arms


“I’ll pay you any amount….all all you have to do is…is to be my BODYGUARD!!!” I said.


“What????!!!” Kelvin yelled


“I….I’m the true heiress of the J corp. industry….and my stepmom is trying to kill me. Please……” I said but he


didn’t spare me another glance as he push my arms away and left in a taxi.


The other guy looked at me and could only smile and walk away.













Leon got home and took of his clothes and entered the shower. He was done bathing when Kelvin came in.


“Dude…..what do you think about it?” he asked


“About?” Leon asked


“The girls offer…..Leon J corp. and IM have been business enemies for decades…..I think this is an opportunity


to take revenge” Kelv said


“Bro I don’t get you” Leon said paying attention to him.


“Look no body knows you are the third some of the IM. If you get close to her you can get access to the J corp.”


“Are you saying I should use her?” Leon asked.


“Well if that’s the case yes….be her bodyguard and …..and you know”


“Kelv just shut up” Leon said


“Leon do you know what he did to your father?, dude…..”


“Kelv I said shut the f**k up” he yelled


“Think about it… off” Kelvin said leaving Leon in daze.

















“Gem why did you ask him that out of the blue… haven’t even thanked him yet?” asked Ruth.


“Sister Ruth….am scared….am really really scared…..she won’t stop until I die. And….and this is the first time


somebody have…. have ever stood up and fight for me….” I said crying


“It’s okay…..with his moves am sure he’s an IM trained bodyguard…..let’s go there tomorrow maybe we will find in…..that apart…..your shooting starts next week…hope you are ready?” she asked and I nodded.


“Sister Ruth thanks a lot….I’ll be going home today” I said


“No I can’t let you go to that house today!!” she yelled


“It’s okay….am going there to do something important I’ll be fine” I said and she sigh.








When I go home I took a deep breath as usual and entered the house. The family of three were busy eating and celebrating….when I was almost kill today. I do know that Dad doesn’t care about me at all but no matter how heard I try….it’s still hurt my heart alot….


I walked in and immediately Marie saw me she choked and Jolene crush her fork on her hands but faked a smile.


“Hi” I said and took a seat and started eating.


“Gem what’s the meaning of this?” father yelled


“Meaning of what?, is it a crime to come eat at my own father’s house?” I asked.


“I heard you’ll be acting with your sister……don’t act in that movie” he said…..and that crush my heart but I




“Honey don’t say that!!!” Marie said


“Yes daddy….am happy to act with sister maybe we’ll get along well” she smiled


“No….what if she has you baby we all know she’s a heartless psycho” he said again and my heart sunk to hear


my own father say such words to me.



“Maids more rice please

….yummy this food is good” I said but he walk up to me and push the food away and


they all fall on the floor.




“Honey stop!!!” Marie cried but deep down she was happy



“Get out….

down my face.





.” I cried. “I won’t go…..disown….me all you want

….I won’t live this house….and am not staying at


the basement anymore….

” I said.



“All you’ve ever brought to me in this house is bad luck….you took everything away from me….. everything I


love…..” he yelled.


“No…..I didn’t…..but I promise you father…’ll regret all your actions some day…..” I said and ran upstairs


into mom’s room.


I cried myself to sleep.



The Ray of the sun shine into mom’s room. I opened my eyes and felt safe and calm inside the room. My phone rang.


“Hello sister Ruth”


“G…..hurry out…..I’ve found your bodyguard he’s indeed a member of the IM trainees” she said and I spring


up from my bed and ran out of the house.






Unknown to use he wasn’t a trainee…..he was the owner IM. I got dress like a famous celebrity and so did




We matched into IM guards Training industry.


“Wow….Gem all eyes are on you” Ruth said


“Am not called Gem for no reason” I brag and we laughed.


“Hi Miss….how may I help you?” a man approach us.


“Take me to your most unique guards ….I need to hand pick one” I said and the man smiled.


We sat down and many handsome guards, with built muscles kept going and coming but I couldn’t find him.


“It’s that all?” I asked looking tired.


“Uhmm….yes ma….you don’t find any of your liking?” he asked.


“Are you sure this is all….?” Ruth asked again


“Yes madam” he answered.


I look out the window and saw Leon walkiwith Kelvin they seems to be arguing about something.


“That….yes….that guy over there…..he’s the one I need” I said and the man’s jaw almost drop.


“Uhmm…..uhm….I’ll…. I’ll talk to him….well you see he is a very very very special guards….he…uhmm…only

The man went to Leon and whispered something to him. He frown his face.


“Tell them am not interested….good work sir” he said and started walking away…..I saw this and ran towards


him with Ruth.


“Hey…..hey wait up” I managed to catch up to him


“What again?” he asked.


“Please….can you be my bodyguard??!” I asked


“No!” he said about to walk away again but I blocked his way.


“Please…I’ll do anything to make you my guard….I just need your help” I said


“There are 946 men in this building…..go choose one” he said


“Buth I want only you out of the 900” I said and he looked at me with his handsome eyes.


“Bro….don’t miss this chance” Kelvin whispered to him.


“Am sorry….miss but I can guard you” he said and walk away.


“And he is so handsome” I cried.


“Crazy…..are you looking for a guard or a husband?, don’t tell me…. you’re…..”


“I just have a little crush on him nothing more….let’s go….” I said.








It’s a new week and we are starting shooting today. When I step into the background I felt inferior. Other actor and actresses had makeup actist, etc but Ruth is my all in all. After a cheap chat with the director Ruth and I took a sit when Jolene walk up to use.


“Hi newbie!” she said “Oh you must be manager Ruth I’ve heard lots about you….” Jolene wanted to win


Ruth’s heart just like others but Ruth only smile at her and nodded.


“Senior Jolene I hope we both do a great job” I said extending my hand for a handshake but she look at me in disgust.


“I don’t act with rookies like you….but I have no choice…. know you place Gem…..and keep your distance” she




We started acting the first scene. Jolene acted first and I got to admit she had skills. It was my turn and the director called me and explain to me. I nodded.


“Action!!!” the manager yelled.


The scene was when I saw the male lead, save his life and fell in love with him in first sight.


“Thanks for saving me young lady….am grateful” he said. Looking straight into my eyes but shyly look away


and lower my head.


“It’s nothing” I said


“Am Yona….and you?” he asked


“My name….I… want to be called Yona too….” I said shyly…. looking like a 12years old. The director was


pleased with my act. The next scene I have to go home and beat up Jolene my younger sister for telling my she loves Yona.


“Senior sister”


“Shut up….you slut …..I’ll kill you…..I’d make sure I cook with your flash…..” I said and bite her hands…she


scream in pains “You taste good junior sister” I said and slapped her……the slap was supposed to be fake but I


made it real. The director was so happy and satisfied with our work so face.


I grab Jolene on her neck.


“Look at me… took dad’s love and mom’s love from me….ever since you were born… are a curse….


a pig with no value….I could cook and eat you anytime you are my meat…my meal….I’ll eat you… you


hahaha….my tasty sister” I yelled….as we both lock gaze.


“Cut!!!!” the director yelled.


“Bravo…..bravo….Miss Gem wow….you are awesome” he started praising me forgetting Jolene the female lead….. Everyone praised me and I was happy.


“The way you acted it….I never wanted it to stop….you did splendid dear”.


We took a break and I was the only one left in the theater room. Before we left everything was in place.




Later Jolene”s stuffs were messed with.


“Miss Gem did you mess with our goddess stuff just because she said you’re a newbie?” jolenes worshipers said.


“What do you mean?” I asked as her bodyguard seize me. “Let go don’t touch me!!” I yelled “I didn’t do anything let me go”.


“Oh yes you did…..if only you have a guard they would have protect you” she said


“What’s going on here???” Ruth yelled


Then Jolene came in forging a cry, with the director.


“Miss Gem how could you?, am so disappointed” he said


“I didn’t do it I swear director am not that kind of a person, maybe it is Jolene trying to set me up”


pah!!!!!, Jolene’s manager slapped my cheeks.


“You dare accuse a goddess for stealing???, you brat!!!” she yelled. A punch from nowhere hit on of the body guard and hit the other


“Miss are you okay?, sorry am late!!!” he said…..I look up in confusion……it was Leon.


“Who do you think you are?” Jolene manager yelled.


“Am Leon…. appointed by MYM Industry to guard miss Gem” he said and my eyes were wide
