Zack’s POV



I dropped the pen inside the bookand closed it, keeping it the way she dropped it.. I sat down back on my seat then stood up and was about to go out when I bumped into Sarah coming inside. Our bodies touched, I flinched and moved back, because I suddenly had a glimpse of prom night.. I held my breath as I tried to make the memory go away.


“sir, are you okay” she asked


“yeah, I am” I replied immediately.


“okay.. ” she said and I walked out. Okay for starters I need to tell her that I’m Zack real soon but still I’m kind of scared..


As I walked through the corridor of each floor, I made my way to the soap sales department ,where I saw Owen coming out with a pen behind his ear,


“oh hey, boss” he said with friendly smile.. “oh hey, I wanna ask u something ” I said “okay go on” he replied.



“what relationship do you have with Sarah ?” I asked knowing it was stupid to pose such a question.


His face beamed by the mention of Sarah and his smiles grew wider.


“why do you ask ?” he remarked.


“Are you questioning me on top my question ?” I replied. angrily.


“Sarah and I are just friends” he said staring at me suspiciously.


“well you guess better be ‘just friends'” I said and walked away, while he continued staring at me, I know am being way too protective but screw it.. I took out my phone and called ken


“I want you to get me the latest and finest BMW car okay ” I tell him and he










Finally work was over and I grabbed my back and shoved my idea book inside bidding Zachary good bye and heading out. I couldn’t wait to go home and sleep.. As I came out of the building I met Owen talking to someone but excused himself and turned to me.


“hey” he said and gave his happy smile.


“hi” I replied


“going home already ” he asked and I nodded and he reciprocated. “so, I want to ask do you have any thing with Mr Zachary” he said “Huh?” I said feeling a little, confused, “a thing with Mr Zachary.. Huh?”.


“like a relationship, or do you guys know each other before?” he asked but i shook my head negatively.


“why are you asking ” I asked.


“nothing never mind” he told me. I nodded and walked away. Weird, I had this sudden strange feeling that I should look up, and when I turned and looked at the window of mr Zachary’s office (my office also, maybe I should just call it Mr Zachary’s office) I saw him staring at me, I froze but gave a friendly wave. His parted lips suddenly closed and he smiled and waved back. I turned and started to walk home. Okay that was so weird….


Why the hell was he staring at me.. Well who cares.






“Mom.. I’m home” I announced immediately I walked in.


“Mommy!! ” Valery screamed in excitement and ran to hug me.


“hey.. How was school ? ” I asked.


“it was okay but mommy you’re home Late.” Valery said with a frowny face. “look honey my job’s changed. I’ll be coming home a little late from now. you’ll just have to learn to live with that okay.” I said and she bat her lashes before nodding..


“so how was work? “my mom asked.


“okay, great actually the boss is seriously, absolutely too nice and goodness I’m starving, no I’m tired.”I said and dropped my bag on the couch. “I’ll go take a shower now” I announced and walked to my room.


I stood still as the warm water rolled down my body, and on my hair it just felt so good, I closed my eyes and suddenly saw smiling Owen, what the hell, I quickly opened my eyes and breathed, I glanced down at my stomach, so flat and normal, I remembered the exercises I took after giving birth to Valery, it really helped.. Well I had actually become a mother by mistake.. I guess.. I turned of the water and grabbed my towel before going into my room and changing into my pajamas..


I ate dinner with mom. I ate till I was satisfied and Valery just sat still on the couch staring at me with her teddy bear with her. I knew something was wrong. so after eating i walked up to her and sat beside her..


“hey, there sweetie what’s wrong, why the long face and why were you staring at me like that” I asked and rubbed her back “nothing ” she replied and breath out a little sigh..


“Vally, If anything’s wrong you can tell me okay” .i stroked her hair and she nodded.


I said stood up and Valery just kept staring at me like she wanted to tell me


something but still she stayed mute..




I laid on my bed with so much power and sniffed my pillow, then breathed out smiling, nothing like home.. And seconds later I fell asleep.. ..


I woke up by the sound of a small knock, I groaned and got down from my bed, what is mom doing here.. I glanced at the clock 10:05pm..


When I opened the door, I saw Valery in her pajamas and her teddy in her cuddle.. “baby, what happened why are you not asleep” I asked “I can’t sleep mommy” she said and rubbed her eyes..



“awwn come and sleep here tonight. ” I told her and a Zack smile appeared on her little face, oh God. And for the first time,she looked familiar, okay I’m going crazy of course she looks familiar she’s my daughter.


Valery jumped happily on my bed and finally laid down and I did too beside her and switched off the lights then stroked her hair. “mommy” Valery called.


“yes baby.” I replied with my eyes closed.


“do I have a daddy?”she asked




“um yes you do” I replied and she moved a little.


“why do u ask?” I asked.


“Nothing it’s just that my friends have daddy’s too and I do too but mommy where’s daddy! ” she asked.


“He’s not around, he went on a vacation. ” I lied.


“a v-ao-catio-nn, what’s a vaocation” she asked.


“it’s vacation and it’s like taking a holiday” I say and she noded and sighs I love that little sighed.


“mommy I missed you today, and also I wished you’d always come to pick me up like yesterday” she added.


“what, u don’t like grandma anymore ” I asked, “I do but I would like it if it was you even though you don’t bring me candies.” she said and I laughed.


“you know for a five years old you talk to much” I saiddand she smiled. “that’s why my teeth are falling off that’s what Miss Wendi said in class to me today” she said and I laughed again.


“I’m sorry I can’t pick u up from school today but how about this, every Saturday I’ll take you to work ” I said and she nodded and finally we both fell asleep.




“oh my gosh I’m. Late” that’s the first thing I said the next morning I woke up. Valery was not beside me but with my mom having breakfast in her school uniform. I quickly took my bath and got prepared for work, I had to take a taxi cause buses were slow.


I paid the taxi man immediately I got to the marbella and hurried to Mr Zachary’s office. I hope he doesn’t get mad.. I got to the office and saw him reading something. He straightened and stared at me. I started defending myself.


“look sir, I am so sorry for coming late, I had to make Valery fall asleep and I.. ”


“it’s okay Sarah,no need to explain and who’s Valery” he asked.


Well on a second note he’s not mad thank God.


“my daughter ” I sad and his lips curved into a smile .


“well get ready for the photoshoot today, model Sarah, which will start any minute from now but first, can you drive” he asked.


“yes I learned a year ago ” I said and he smiled and nodded. “well then please follow me and hold this ” he said, stood up and handed me a key..


I followed him and we both headed downstairs, and he moved to the Parking lot, then pointed to a sparkly black shiny BMW. “that Is yours” he said








“excuse me? ” I said.


“okay, actually I bought that car for you.” he said and rushed his words okay is this


a dream or what;
